The Detroit Tigers note Chicago White Sox battle on Sunday on ESPN’s Sunday night baseball. All odds and trends for this game can be found at Bovada sportsbook.
The Tigers have won the first two games of the series and if they win tonight can move into a tie for the division lead. Max Scherzer was solid on the mound overall earning his 15th win of the season yesterday. Tonight the Tigers will turn to Justin Verlander who is pitching to a 2.80 ERA in 196 innings of work.
The White Sox continue to lead their division but it is very small lead at that. They lost yesterday as Francisco Liriano struggled on the mound and their bats did not really come to play either. Tonight the White Sox will send their ace Chris Sale to the mound. In 157 innings of work he is pitching to 2.81 ERA.
Detroit is 24-6 in their last 30 home games, 53-25 in their last 78 games as a home favorite, and 39-16 in Verlander’s last 55 starts. Chicago is 1-5 in their last six games overall, 1-8 in their last nine road games, and 12-5 in Sale’s last 17 starts. Chicago is 9-28 in the last 37 meetings of these two.
The odds on Sale here are too good to pass up. We know Verlander s a stud, but Sale isn’t bad himself. Take the White Sox as moneyline underdogs in this game at best online sportsbooks.
