The Detroit Tigers have put up plenty of decent performances this year and have clearly showed that they will not just be an easy win, so the Chicago White Sox will need to show up with a solid effort here in order to get the job done.
The Detroit Tigers are coming off of a loss to this White Sox team in the first game of this series by a score of 4-1, but the White Sox only really pulled away towards the end of the game, so the game was up for grabs up until the end.
The Tigers have had some really nice performances from some of their rookie pitchers and sophomore pitchers like Casey Mize who has looked quite good at this early juncture of the season, but the pitching has not really been Detroit’s problem here in 2021.
The batting lineup certainly has been the weaker part of this team and given their stats they are one of the worst orders in the in tire league and needless to say they have not helped their starters out much with consistent run support.
Tarik Skubal will be getting the start in this spot and although he does not have amazing stats he is still a very solid pitcher who looks to be getting better and better as the season goes on and it would be no surprise at all if he makes it past the 5th inning here.
Chicago White Sox
The Chicago White Sox seem to be every ones favorite sleeper pick this year and that is with good reason, as they have a top 10 pitching unit and one of the deepest batting lineups in all of the major leagues.
Despite guys like Yermin Mercedes getting all of the headlines, the one guy who has been most impressive for me this year has been Jose Abreu who now has 11 home runs and has been able to turn that into 46 RBI.
Lucas Giolito will head to the hill here for the White Sox and that should give the White Sox a very solid opportunity to pick up this victory because although he did not start the year all that well, he has been awesome lately and he now gets an A+ matchup to keep his hot streak going.

Free Detroit Tigers vs. Chicago White Sox MLB Prediction:
This looks like a decent opportunity to go to the under, as I think Skubal can buck the trend in terms of the White Sox hitting versus lefties, as I think he has some serious ability just based off of watching him. On the other side of things I fully expect Giolito to roll through the Tigers batting lineup, so I do not see the visitors contributing much on the scoreboard in this contest.
