The Chicago White Sox will head up to the Motor City to start their four-game divisional series with the Detroit Tigers this Thursday from Comerica Park.

White Sox Betting Preview

Chicago enters at 21-30 after taking two of three from Cleveland. The White Sox have now won seven of their last nine games, and things are quietly starting to pick up in the Southside. The Chicago offense is 4.72 scoring runs per game, while batting .238, with a .306 on-base percentage. The pitching staff carries a 5.72 ERA, with a 1.21 WHIP. Andrew Vaughn has recorded a hit in six of the last eight games, and he leads the Sox in RBI (31). Luis Robert Jr. had multiple hits in the game two win over Cleveland, and he’s first on the team in homers (13) and runs scored (34). Andrew Benintendi has a hit in nine of the last ten games, and he leads the team in batting (.272)

Lucas Giolito (3-3, 3.62 ERA, 60 Ks) will get the call for Chicago. The eighth-year pitcher continues to deliver reliability on the mound, and he picked up his third victory of the season last time out against Kansas City. Giolito has pitched six quality starts in his last eight appearances, and he’s performed well historically against Detroit. 

Tigers Betting Preview

Detroit moved to 22-25 after taking two of three from Kansas City. The Tigers avenged three straight series loss, and they’ll look to hold the fort down at home this weekend. The Detroit offense is scoring 2.72 runs per game, while batting .216, with a .281 on-base percentage. The pitching staff carries a 4.64 ERA, with a 1.21 WHIP. Riley Greene has collected multiple hits in five of the last eight games, and he leads the Tigers in batting (.291). Javy Baez produced four runs in the KC series, and he now leads the team in RBI (23). 

Alex Faedo (0-2, 4.60 ERA, 12 Ks) will get the call for Chicago. The second-year pitcher struggled a bit in DC last week, and took his second straight loss to the Nationals. Faedo has allowed three runs in each of his first three starts, but he did pitch well in his lone home spot against Seattle, striking out seven in six full innings. 

Chicago vs Detroit Trends

Chicago is 27-24 against the spread this season, with a 25-22-1 O/U record. Detroit is 25-21 ATS this year, with a 23-22-1 over/under record.

Corey’s Free Pick

Chicago is starting to figure things out, and with Lucas Giolito set to take the mound, they have a good chance to start strong here. Giolito has been very good this season despite the Sox’ trouble early on, and he’s someone you can rely on against a weaker Tigers lineup. Chicago’s bats should also find their way to some production with an inexperienced Alex Faedo making his first start in three weeks. Back Chicago for game one of this divisional series.
