The Pirates are last in the NL Central at 7-17, they are 4-6 in their last 10 and 2-8 when playing on the road. The Pirates are a bad baseball team.
The Pirates do not hit the ball well. Their entire lineup has been shameful so far this season, as they rank 29th in the Majors in OPS, wOBA, and wRC+. They’ve scored the fourth fewest runs in the Majors so far this season.
Their pitcher today, Steven Brault, has good numbers but very limited activity. Brault has yet to give up an earned run in four starts, but has only pitched 12 total innings. It’s also worth noting that the Pirates are 0-4 in those starts.
Chicago White Sox
The White Sox are having an outstanding season. They are 7-3 in their last 10 and 17-12 overall. Additionally, they are only two games back of the AL Central division lead.
The White Sox lineup has been dynamite so far. They are second in the league in OPS (.807), third in wOBA (.343), and third in wRC+ (120). They are scoring at will and actually lead the Majors in hits at this point.
Lucas Giolito, after an absolutely catastrophic opening day start, has been nails this season. In his last five starts, Giolito has pitched 31 innings with a 2.32 ERA, a 1.09 WHIP, and 42 strikeouts.
Free Pittsburgh Pirates vs. Chicago White Sox MLB Prediction:
Take the White Sox Run Line. This one is a no-brainer, and here’s three reasons why:
1- Despite how good they have been, the White Sox lineup are even better against left-handed pitching
Against LHP this season, the White Sox have posted a .994 OPS, a .412 wOBA, and a 167 wRC+, all of which lead the Majors by a significant margin. For non-advanced-stats guys; the White Sox are hitting a combined .305 with 19 HRs against left-handed pitching.
Steven Brault is a left-handed pitcher.
2- Despite how awful they have been, the Pirates lineup are even worse against right-handed pitching
Against RHP this season, the Pirates rank dead last in the Majors in OPS, wOBA, and WRC+. Incredibly, their OPS against RHPs doesn’t even crack .600 (.588 to be exact).
Lucas Giolito is a right-handed pitcher.
3- The White Sox have been extremely profitable on the Run Line this season
This season, the White Sox are 19-10 in RL W/L. If you bet one unit on every White Sox RL, you’d be up over 10 units on the season.
