Twins Betting Preview

The Twins sit with a 17-14 record overall but too often this season still the offense has really struggled. On Wednesday the Twins had the bases loaded with no outs and couldn’t even score one run. The Twins are averaging 4.52 runs while their pitching staff is giving up 3.77 runs per game. Byron Buxton has hit seven home runs and driven in 18 RBIs. On the mound for the Twins will be Pablo Lopez who sits with a 2-2 record and an ERA of 4.00. In his last start against the Royals he went six innings giving up eight hits and six runs. 

White Sox Betting Preview

The White Sox sit with a 10-21 record overall but they finally have their first series win. On Wednesday Luis Robert hit a home run and drove in three RBIs. The White Sox are averaging 4.09 runs while their pitching is giving up 6.09 runs per game. The pitching has been an issue and they need the pitching to be better in this game. On the mound for the White Sox will be Lucas Giolito who sits with a 1-2 record and an ERA of 4.15. In his last start against the Ray he went 6.2 innings giving up eight hits and two runs. 

Twins vs White Sox Trends

White Sox are 0-5 in Giolitos last 5 starts vs. a team with a winning record. White Sox are 1-10 in their last 11 during game 3 of a series. White Sox are 1-5 in Giolito's last 6 starts. Under is 4-0 in Giolito's last 4 starts overall. Under is 3-0-1 in White Sox last 4 vs. American League Central.

Shane’s Free Pick

This game is going to be higher scoring. Gilito sits with an ERA of 4.15 and Pablo Lopez has really struggled in each of his last couple of starts. This is a game where both teams can score eight or nine runs by themselves. This is going to be a shootout, and the over is going to cash. It’s also a lean with the Twins on the money line.

The pick in this article is the opinion of the writer, not a PickDawgz site consensus.
