Tigers vs White Sox Betting Prediction

Detroit was able to get great pitching on Thursday in the season opener and they were able to get the bats going to offset a really poor start from Maeda in Game 2. The Tigers should compete in the AL Central this year, but they need to take advantage of games against teams like Chicago that are rebuilding. The White Sox are going to have some major struggles this season and they will turn to Erick Fedde, who has been a below average pitcher for most of his career. Detroit is going with Jack Flaherty, who has shown the ability to be a quality starting pitcher, but has struggled over the last two seasons. I think we could see plenty of runs in this game with two sub-par starting pitchers on the mound, so take the over here.
