Score: 7 - 4
Money Line: -121 Chi White Sox
*4 Star Play on White Sox ML* The Detroit Tigers are the worst team in baseball. Detroit is 10-43 in their last 53 games. The Tigers are 9-46 in their last 55 games against a right handed pitcher.
In this one, they'll be against a good right handed pitcher. Lucas Giolito has had a really good season. Giolito had a bit of a blip for a while, but he has looked better again of late. Giolito has allowed 1 run or less in 10 of his last 16 starts this season. He has a FIP of 2.92 or lower in 3 of his last 4 starts. The one poor start was against the Twins. He's not up against anything like the Twins offense today.
The Tigers traded away their best bullpen arm in Shane Greene. While the White Sox bullpen isn't good, it is slightly better than the Tigers.
Spencer Turnbull has potential for the Tigers, but he has had multiple injuries and his most recent setback was a back injury. This is his first game off the injured list.
The White Sox are 7-3 in Giolito's last 10 road starts. A good price here on the road team.
Take the White Sox.
