The Minnesota Twins Chicago White Sox will meet on Wednesday afternoon from Target Field. All up to date odds for this game can be found at Bovada sportsbook.
The Twins have been playing well as of late and while they won’t make the playoffs they continue to play hard. They lost the game on Tuesday night despite a pretty good pitching effort from Nick Blackburn who allowed just two runs in eight innings of work. This afternoon the Twins will send Scott Diamond to the mound who has been great as of late. In 100 innings of work diamond is pitching to a 2.88 ERA.
The White Sox extended their lead in the division on Tuesday and will look to do so even more tonight. They will send Jake Peavy to the mound who is having a resurgence of a season. He has allowed just 119 hits in 140 innings of work while striking out 126 batters as well for the season.
Minnesota is 4-1 in their last five games overall, 19-41 in their last 61 games as a home underdog, and 7-1 in Diamond’s last eight home starts. Chicago is 5-1 in their last six games against a team with a losing record, 3-7 in their last 10 road games, and 0-5 in Peavy’s last five road starts. Chicago is 9-3 in their last 12 games in Minnesota.
Peavy has sometimes been the victim of low run support, but we figure the White Sox to help him more in this area this afternoon. Give us the White Sox as a moneyline favorite on the road in this game at online sportsbook usa.
