Rangers plus 1 1/2 runs minus $1.15 (run line) at White Sox 

The White Sox won the first two games of this series by a combined three runs. I’m expecting another close score with a low total and cold weather with temperatures in the low 40s probably meaning runs will be tough to come by. 

Texas would be 8-4 in its last 12 games if given plus 1 1/2 runs. The White Sox would be 4-8 in their past dozen games if minus 1 1/2 runs. 

The pitching matchup is Kohei Arihara versus Michael Kopech, who is taking the place of Luis Giolito, whose start has been pushed back to Tuesday because of a cut on his middle pitching finger.

Arihara has impressed after coming to the Rangers from the Nippon Professional Baseball’s Pacific League. He is 2-1 with a 2.21 ERA. He enters this matchup riding a 12 1/3-inning scoreless streak. 

Kopech is an exciting young strikeout pitcher with a high ceiling. But Kopech isn’t expected to pitch deep into the game and he’s far from being a polished big league pitcher yet. The White Sox won’t have the use of their star closer, Liam Hendriks. He’ll be rested after throwing a combined 46 pitches the last two days. 

My Sunday card is headed up by my NBA April Game of the Month. I won 61 percent of my NBA plays last season and am 11-1 on my NBA Games of the Month/Week/Year side plays this season. If you are interested in my sports service please email me at scriber26@gmail.com, or message me via Twitter.
