Chicago is 0-4 in their last four games and Chicago is 4-0 in their last 4 starts by Kopech with the total set between 7 and 8.5. The under is 3-0-1 in Minnesota’s last 4 games against a right-handed starter and the under is 4-0-1 in Minnesota’s last 5 games against the AL Central. Chicago is 14-6 in these two teams last 20 head to head meetings. The under is 4-1 in these two teams last 5 head to head meetings in Minnesota.

The White Sox started the year strong, but have really hit a skid over their last four games. Minnesota has also struggled in their recent games and will go up against a very confident pitcher. The White Sox are the better team in this matchup and I really do not like what Ober has to offer. I am taking the White Sox to win on the road.
