Jake Odorizzi hasn’t been one of my favorite starts in the majors to begin with, and now, he has to come off of the DL and face a white hot White Sox team that’s making a push for the AL’s best record this season. Going from three starts against the Royals this season to playing this lineup for Chicago that’s in their groove will be a tall task to say the least. My concern is that Lucas Giolito’s been tagged for 11 runs, 9 earned in his two starts spanning 8.2 innings against Minnesota this season, but the White Sox have won Giolito’s last five starts with four coming through on the run line, including a win over these same Twins by a score of 8-5 at the end of August. I’ll side with the Chicago White Sox on the run line as my premium pick for this game.
