Nover’s View: Free Sunday MLB Play

White Sox minus 1 1/2 minus $1.25 (run line) hosting Orioles 

Looking to go against the Orioles? The line starts on the left and it’s blocks long. 

I’m going to skip in front, though, by laying 1 1/2 runs with the White Sox against the Orioles on the run line. Baltimore has lost 12 in a row with 10 of those defeats occurring by more than one run.

Here’s another thing: The pitching matchup is Lucas Giolito versus Keegan Akin, who happens to be left-handed. The White Sox are 12-3 facing southpaw starters this season. That impressive mark goes up to a mind-boggling 25-3 if you go back to last year. 

Giolito is one of the better pitchers in the American League. He has 23 strikeouts in his last 20 innings and is backed by a White Sox bullpen that has the fourth-lowest ERA in the majors at 3.22. Baltimore has managed just 15 runs in its last six games, an average of 2.5 runs. 

Akin will be making his first start of the season. He had a 4.56 ERA in eight games, including six starts, as a rookie last season. The White Sox are hitting an American League-best .279 versus lefties. They rank No. 1 in the majors against lefties in slugging percentage and OPS.

Akin doesn’t figure to get any help from a Baltimore relief corps that has the second-highest ERA in the majors at 5.07. 

I am unbeaten on my premium baseball plays the last three days and 18-5 on my NBA big plays this season. I have two premium MLB plays today in addition to this free selection plus my NBA Western Conference Game of the Month.
