White Sox Betting Preview
Chicago enters at 22-31 after defeating Detroit. The White Sox have now won six of their last eight games, and things are quietly starting to come together for them. 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)
Jesse Scholtens (0-2, 2.25 ERA, 60 Ks) will get the call for Chicago. The rookie pitcher held his ground in his third MLB start last week in Cleveland, containing the Guardians to one run over five full innings. There’s a chance Scholtens is able to build on that performance against an inconsistent Tigers lineup.
Tigers Betting Preview
Detroit moved to 23-26 after falling to Chicago. The Tigers couldn’t follow up their game one victory, and they’ll look to respond Saturday. 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).
Michael Lorenzen (0-2, 4.60 ERA, 12 Ks) will get the call for Chicago. The ninth-year pitcher will look to avenge a tough outing in Kansas City that saw him allow five runs in 5.2 innings. Lorenzen pitched three straight quality starts, while allowing just two runs to open the month of May, and he’ll look to close strong here at home.

Corey’s Free Pick
Chicago’s turnaround has been nice to see, but after being blown out on their home turf, Detroit might be out for revenge today. The Sox ran things up last night, and the Tigers should come out swinging, which could reflect the scoreboard. The total has been eclipsed in both games so far, and while a third one could cut close, let’s sway in Over’s direction again here for game three.
