White Sox minus $1.34 at Tigers

It’s often tempting to go against the Tigers. The question here is it worth it to back the White Sox as road chalk?

Yes in this case.

The White Sox are 7-2 in their last nine games. Their starter, Lucas Giolito, is showing signs of having a bounce back season after posting a 4.90 ERA last year. He’s 3-3 with a 3.62 ERA and an excellent 1.12 WHIP in 10 starts this year. He’s had quality starts in six of his last eight outings going at least six innings in all eight of those appearances. He ranks 16th in the American League in strikeouts.

Detroit is in the bottom-six in a number of key offensive categories including, runs, batting average, homers and OPS.

Alex Faedo is set to make his fourth start of the season for Detroit. The righthander has a 4.60 ERA pitching 15 2/3 innings. Faedo has displayed excellent control, walking only one batter. However, he has surrendered five home runs. He has a career 5.32 ERA. The White Sox faced Faedo last June and got to him for seven runs on nine hits in three plus innings during a 13-0 victory. Chicago is 6-1 the last seven times going against a righty starter.

Outfielder Luis Robert Jr. is expected to return to the White Sox lineup today after being out with a quad injury. He leads the White Sox in homers with 13.

The White Sox have defeated the Tigers in seven of the past eight games they’ve played against each other in Detroit.
