Why Bet The White Sox:
✅ The White Sox have won their last three games. That includes a three-game sweep of the Giants in San Francisco over the weekend. The White Sox has won two of the last three meetings between these teams in Chicago.
✅ The White Sox Johnny Cueto is coming off a spectacular June that saw the right-hander go 2-3 with a 3.82 ERA. Cueto allowed 15 earned runs in 35.1 innings. He posted a 1.10 WHIP and a .248 opponent batting average.
✅ The Twins Dylan Bundy pitched well over his last three starts, but still allowed 13 earned runs in 25.1 innings in June. He has given up four or more runs in three of his last six starts.
The Twins lost to the Baltimore Orioles on Sunday at home, 3-1. That moved Minnesota to 6-4 in their last 10 as they hold a 2.0 game lead over the Cleveland Guardians and a 4.5 game lead over the White Sox in the AL Central. Minnesota is 20-19 on the road.
The Twins have one of the best pitching staff in baseball, sixth overall in runs allowed per game at 3.97. The offense has been solid (4.51 runs per game), and are ninth in team batting average (.251). Byron Buxton is having a monster year in homeruns, blasting 21 in 61 games, but he is hitting just .227 and has 38 RBI.
Chicago White Sox
The White Sox swept the San Francisco Giants over the weekend after winning on Sunday, 13-4. That moves the White Sox to 5-5 in their last 10, but they are only 16-21 at home this season.
The offense has not been impressive for the White Sox, 20th in runs scored (4.27) and they are 20th in runs allowed per game (4.73). This is a club that is capable of getting on base, fifth in team batting average (.254), but they are just 22nd in OPS (.687).
