The Tigers have won eight of their last nine games when scoring four or more runs. Jeimer Candelario leads the Tigers with 48 hits and 28 RBI while Victor Reyes and Jonathan Schoop have combined for 90 hits and 36 RBI. Casey Mize gets the ball, and he is 0-1 with a 6.75 ERA and 16 strikeouts this season. This will be Mize’s second career game against the White Sox.
The Chicago White Sox look for a win after winning five of their last six games. The White Sox have scored 20 runs in their last three games and four or more runs in six straight games. The White Sox have won 10 of their last 12 games when scoring four or more runs.

The Tigers are 17-38 in their last 55 during game 1 of a series, 20-46 in their last 66 Friday games and 48-117 in their last 165 overall. The White Sox are 5-0 in their last 5 Friday games, 9-1 in their last 10 games as a home favorite and 9-1 in their last 10 home games. The over is 4-1 in Tigers last 5 overall. The under is 3-0-1 in White Sox last 4 overall. The Tigers are 0-5 in the last 5 meetings in Chicago.
Casey Mize has allowed 11 earned runs and 19 hits through 14.2 innings this season while Lucas Giolito has allowed 13 earned runs and 26 hits in his last 45 innings. The Chicago White Sox have the better pitcher on the hill, and they're playing such good baseball at the moment that I'm not trying to step in front of them right now. We can't say the same about the Tigers. Give me the White Sox and the RL for max betting value.
