One of the best pitchers in the game takes the hill, as Chris Sale and MLB co-leading 10 wins faces off against the Detroit Tigers and Mike Pelfrey.
Detroit has a strong offense, as evidenced by their .269 average which is good for 6th in the MLB, plus their current seating as the 11th best team in both homeruns and runs.
Justin Upton hasn’t been much of a contributor since signing in the off-season, only totaling 4 HR and a brutal .225 average.
The Tigers have, however, received strong efforts from Victor Martinez, Cameron Maybin, Ian Kinsler, Miguel Cabrera and JD Martinez.
The Tigers are hitting .254 against LHP vs .274 against RHP this year.
Mike Pelfrey is 1-6 on the season, and hasn’t helped his own case with a 4.68 ERA and an ugly 1.71 WHIP so far.
His strikeout-to-walk ratio provides even more evidence that he simply is not a good pitcher any longer, with a 34:28 rate in 65 inning pitched.
While he’s actually pitched better on the road, with a 3.86 ERA despite an 0-4 record, he is facing a offense that has started to roll in a hitter friendly park.
Chicago White Sox
Chris Sale is a top-5 pitcher in the game, and will try for sole possession of the MLB lead in wins as he goes for his 11th in this matchup. He holds the team lead in strikeout with 86 to go along with a 2.87 ERA and a 1.01 WHIP in 2016.
On the year, Sale has held opposing hitters to just a .213 batting average.
To mop things up, David Robertson is one of the better closers in baseball year-over-year, and should be able to add a tally onto his current 15 saves in this one.
Jose Abreu, the driving force behind the White Sox’ offense, has started to catch fire of late. After a slow start, he has recorded at least one hit in 9 of his past 10 games, with 16 total hits including 3 homeruns in that span.
Third baseman, Todd Frazier, has provided a power boost to the lineup since being acquired in the offseason from Cincinnati.
He’s slugged 19 homeruns on the year, which is just one back of Mark Trumbo for the MLB lead.
MLB Baseball Betting Trends:
- Detroit is 15-18 on the road
- the Tigers are 7-3 in their last 10 games
- Abreu has raised his season batting average 22 points in the past 10 games
- Chicago is 16-16 at home this year
- The Sox are 3-7 in their past 10
Free Detroit Tigers vs. Chicago White Sox MLB Prediction:
Given the way the two teams have trended lately, you could make the argument for picking Detroit on the road here despite the pitching matchup. However, Detroit has decreased average against lefties and Sale is as dominant as they come.
4* Free MLB Betting Pick: Chicago -1.5
I like the White Sox, especially when you factor in how Pelfrey is susceptive to the long-ball and doesn’t strike anyone out.
