White Sox vs Giants Betting Pick
This game will be played at Oracle Park at 4:05 PM ET on Sunday, July 3, 2022.
Why Bet The Giants:
✅ The White Sox will send Lucas Giolito to the mound, and the 27-year-old right-hander has been a complete disaster in the last few weeks. Giolito has gone 1-3 with a bloated 8.24 ERA and 6.09 FIP over his previous six starts and 31.2 innings of work. He’s 4-4 with a pedestrian 5.19 ERA and 1.53 WHIP in 13 starts (69.1 innings pitched) in 2022 and ranks in the 20th percentile in both xERA and xwOBA.
✅ The Giants haven’t announced who’ll get the starting call Sunday. Anthony DeSclafani has just returned to the IL, so the Giants will probably opt for a bullpen day. Their relievers have been outstanding in the last ten days and 33 frames of work, posting a 2.73 ERA and 3.49 FIP while walking just 2.7 per nine innings.
✅ The White Sox are scoring 4.14 runs per game (21st in the MLB). They’ve slashed only .259/.316/.366 in the last couple of weeks, slugging just six home runs across 13 games and 459 at-bats.
Chicago White Sox
The White Sox improved to 36-39 following Friday’s narrow victory at Oracle Park. It was their third win in the last nine games overall, and the White Sox were laying at the third spot in the AL Central, five and a half games behind Minnesota and four behind Cleveland.
Lucas Giolito finished June with a respectable outing in a 4-3 defeat at the Los Angeles Angels. He tossed six frames of a two-run, six-hit ball but didn’t factor into the decision. The White Sox’s bullpen has compiled a 2.45 ERA, 2.50 FIP, and .250 BABIP in the last ten days and 25.2 frames of work.
San Francisco Giants
The Giants dropped to 40-35 on the season following that 1-0 defeat to the Chi Sox. It was their second straight loss and eighth in the Giants’ previous 11 games overall. San Francisco was sitting at the third spot in the NL West, four games behind the San Diego Padres and 7.5 games off the LA Dodgers. San Francisco is scoring 4.77 runs per game (7th in the MLB). The Giants have slashed .235/.322/.395 with 16 homers in their last 12 games and 395 at-bats.
