The Chicago pitching staff has a 4.86 ERA, a 1.40 WHIP, and a .250 opponent batting average this season. The White Sox offense has scored 215 runs with a .237 batting average and a .295 on base percentage. Luis Robert is batting .267 with 13 home runs and 29 RBI’s for the White Sox. The projected starting pitcher for Chicago is Lance Lynn, who is 3-5 with a 6.28 ERA and a 1.47 WHIP over 57.1 innings pitched this year.
The Detroit Tigers are 23-25 this season and they have won three of their last four games. Detroit won Game 1 in this series by a score of 7-2 on Thursday night. The Detroit pitching staff has a 4.35 ERA, a 1.23 WHIP, and a .242 opponent batting average. The Tigers offense has scored 179 runs with a .231 batting average and a .305 on base percentage this year. Spencer Torkelson is batting .242 with four home runs and 22 RBI’s for the Tigers. The projected starting pitcher for Detroit is Joey Wentz, who is 1-4 with a 7.45 ERA and a 1.63 WHIP over 38.2 innings pitched this season.
Chicago is 5-2 in their last 7 games and 2-6 in their last 8 Friday games. The under is 7-1 in Chicago’s last 8 games. Detroit is 15-4 in their last 19 games against the AL Central and 0-5 in their last 5 game two’s of a series. The over is 5-1-1 in Detroit’s last 7 Friday games. Chicago is 7-2 in these two teams last 9 head to head meetings in Detroit.
Detroit was able to get a nice win in the first game in this series and they are only two games behind the Twins for first place in the AL Central. The Tigers are starting Joey Wentz, who has been inconsistent this season. Wentz has allowed 16 earned runs over his last four starts (16.1 IP). Chicago is starting Lance Lynn, who has allowed three earned runs over his last 13 innings of work. Wentz got roughed up in his last outing and the Detroit offense has been much improved lately, so I like the over in this game.
