The Minnesota Twins are in Chicago for a three game series with division rivals the Chicago White Sox. The White Sox are just 7-9 against the Twins so far this season but they have won 6 of the last 11 meetings in Chicago. The last 5 meetings between the White Sox and Twins have all gone over the total so that may be something for bettor to take a look at.
Head to head Trends
Over is 5-0 in the last 5 meetings.
Over is 6-0 in the last 6 meetings in Chicago.
Chicago White Sox (-107)
The Chicago White Sox are 4th in the American League Central 14.5 games back of the 1st place Kansas City Royals. The White Sox are 14 games under .500 on the season at 66-80 but they play ok at home where they are 37-37. At home the White Sox average 4.14 runs per game on offense and allow 4.86 runs per game on defense, with numbers like that it’s kind of surprising that they’re anywhere near .500. Starting for Chicago today is lefty Jose Quintana who is 7-10 with a 3.38 ERA on the season.
Chicago White Sox Trends
White Sox are 4-1 in their last 5 home games.
White Sox are 1-6 in Quintanas last 7 starts.
Minnesota Twins (-103)
The Minnesota Twins are 5th in the American League Central 18.5 games out of 1st place. The Twins are 18 games under .500 on the season with a 62-84 record. Much like the White Sox the Twins have a decent offense but they’re pitching is horrendous allowing 4.82 runs per game. The Twins have been having a tough time lately winning just 4 of their last 18 games and have allowed an amazing 119 runs or 6.61 runs per game over that span. On the hill for the Twins today is Phil Hughes who is 15-9 with a 3.55 ERA on the season. Phil Hughes is actually the 6th highest starting pitcher money earner for bettors this season. If you were to bet $100 on every one of Hughes starts this season you would have gone 18-11 and made a profit of $1105.
Minnesota Twins Trends
Twins are 4-14 in their last 18 games overall.
Twins are 2-5 in Hughes’ last 7 starts with 5 days of rest.
I like the Chicago White Sox in this one today. Neither team is exactly very good but the Twins are just struggling so bad right now winning just 4 of their last 18 games. They also played a double hitter yesterday that saw their bullpen pitch 6 innings so their bullpen who have already throw a lot of inning recently may be extra tired and if Hughes don’t have his good stuff today this game may get ugly fast.
Free Pick: Chicago White Sox -107
