Chi White Sox vs. Detroit,

Score: 8 - 1
Money Line: -107 Chi White Sox
The 1899 Cleveland Spiders. The 1962 New York Mets. The 2019 Detroit Tigers.
Yes the Tigers are getting to be historically that bad having lost 30 of their last 35 home games.
Detroit is 9-48 in its last 57 games against a righty starter and draw a hot Ivan Nova here. Nova is pitching his best ball of the season and maybe of his career with a 0.90 ERA during his last three starts. He's held the Marlins, Twins and Phillies to two earned runs in 20 innings during this span giving up 11 hits and three walks.
The Tigers are second-to-last in runs, have only one decent starter and a terrible bullpen. The result is the worst record in baseball at 33-77.
Lefty Tyler Alexander gets the call for Detroit. He has a 4.50 ERA. The White Sox are at their best versus southpaws compiling a 21-17 mark against them. Chicago is 5-1 in its last six road games when facing a lefty starter.
