White Sox Betting Preview
Chicago enters at 11-22 following the win over Cincinnati. The White Sox have now won four of their last five games, and they’re starting to show some life. The Chicago offense is 4.72 scoring runs per game, while batting .235, with a .296 on-base percentage. The pitching staff carries a 5.44 ERA, with a 1.56 WHIP. Andrew Benintendi has recorded a hit in four of the last six games, and he leads the White Sox in hitting (.265), after recording a hit in nine of the last ten games. Andrew Vaughn is first on the team in RBI (20), while Luis Robert Jr. is now second with 18 after producing five in the last three games.
Mike Clevinger (2-2, 4.60 ERA, 26 Ks) will make the road start for Chicago. The eighth-year righty pitched well versus Tampa on Sunday, striking out eight in five full innings. Clevinger has 2-1 record on the road this season, but he did drop his last bout in Toronto after giving up six runs.
Reds Betting Preview
Cincinnati moved to 13-19 after losing to Chicago. The Reds avoided a tenth straight loss with late game heroics at Petco, and they’ll attempt to build on that here. The Cincinnati offense is scoring 3.78 runs per game, while batting .244, with a .324 on-base percentage. The pitching staff carries a 4.89 ERA, with a 1.50 WHIP. TJ Friedl leads the team in batting (.318), after recording multiple hits in two of the last three games. Jonathan India has a hit in eight of the last ten games, and he leads Cincy in runs (23).
Nick Lodolo (2-1, 6.16 ERA, 31 Ks) will take the mound for Cincinnati. The second-year pitcher bounced back from a pair of tough stats versus Tampa and Texas last time out by striking out seven in five innings of work in Oakland. Lodolo has cleared six strikeouts in five of his first six starts.
Chicago vs Cincinnati Trends
Chicago is 14-18 against the spread this season, with a 17-12-3 O/U record. Cincinnati is 18-13 ATS this year, with a 16-15 over/under record.
Corey's Free Pick
Chicago is starting to pick up steam after opening the season slowly, and while I think that momentum carries over, targeting the total here may bring more security. Nick Lodolo and Mike Clevinger are strikeout pitchers, but they’ve been vulnerable at times this season, and both lineups may find some success Saturday. Take the Over for this interleague matchup.
