The San Francisco Giants will head to the Windy City to start a three-game set with the Chicago White Sox from Guaranteed Rate Field. Chicago swept San Francisco in the Bay last season, and they’ve won the last five meetings.

Giants Betting Preview

San Francisco enters at 1-2 after a tough weekend in the Bronx with the Yankees. The Giants did manage to avoid the series sweep by stealing a win on Saturday, but they were shutout yesterday and will look to rebound here. Brandon Crawford came through in the win over New York, and he leads SFG early with 3 RBI.

Anthony DeSclafani will start for San Fran. The eighth-year pitcher’s second season in the Bay was marred by injury after a strong 2021 campaign that saw personal bests of a 13-7 record, a 3.17 ERA, and 152 strikeouts. 

White Sox Betting Preview

Chicago comes in at 2-2 after splitting games with Houston at Minute Maid Park. The White Sox closed the set strong with a 13-hit performance, and a three-run victory. Yoan Moncada doubled twice and homered in yesterday's win, and he leads CWS with 5 RBI.

Michael Kopech gets the call for Chicago. The fifth-year pitcher made the adjustment to from bullpen to starting rotation last season, and generated mixed results with a 5-9 record, a 3.54 ERA, and 105 strikeouts. 

San Francisco vs Chicago Trends

San Francisco is 1-2 against the spread this season, with a 1-2 over/under record. Chicago is 2-2 ATS, with a 3-1 O/U record. SFG is 1-6 in their last 7 interleague road games. The Under is 4-0 in CWS last 4 during game 1 of a series. The White Sox are 5-0 in their last 5 home games with the total set at 6.5 or lower.

Corey's Free Pick

San Francisco wasn’t dealt an ideal season-opening test with the three-game, cross-country set in New York, and their struggles may continue here in the Windy City. Chicago played the defending World Series champ well on the road, and I like them winning game one here in the Southside. Roll with the White Sox to cover Monday. 

Corey’s Pick White Sox -1.5
