Chicago White Sox
Lopez was stellar in his last start that came against the Pittsburgh Pirates as he went 7.1 innings giving up two earned off of two solo home runs, while striking out six and walking two. He only has four total strikeouts in his last three outings before this one.
Lopez may have a shiny 2.44 ERA, but his FIP currently sits at 4.93, which means his defense has been making him look good. Also another indicator of how “lucky” Lopez is been is his BABIP is sitting at a very lucky .202. It’s only a matter of time before his 82.6% LOB% takes a hit.
Chicago continues their struggle as they have won just once in their last five contests. During that time their lineup is slashing .246/.314/.419 to go with 15 extra-base hits and 22 RBI.
It was another unspectacular outing for Williams who was roughed up a tad by the Chicago White Sox. He went five innings giving up four earned off of seven hits and two home runs while he struck out three and walked two. Williams has given up four home runs in his last two outings.
His strikeout (5.67 K/9) to walk (3.91 BB/9) rate has been undesirable, and his home runs (0.98 HR/9) has been creeping up. His 80.9% LOB% will soon take a hit as his lucky .223 BABIP begins to regress. So while his 3.13 ERA looks nice, it isn’t going to last much longer as it should fall towards his 4.60 FIP.
Pittsburgh continues to tear it up as they have won five of their last six contests. During that span their lineup has been hot slashing .308/.381/.558 to go with 23 extra-base hits and 33 RBI.

4* Free MLB Betting Pick: OVER 8 Runs
Lopez was able to contain this solid hitting Pittsburgh lineup in his last outing, but now that Pittsburgh has familiarity with him they should be able to knock him for some runs. Williams seems to be hitting a slump and will be facing the team that just knocked him for four runs. This should be a close outing, but the total should creep over eight runs.
