Money line (ML)
The Pale Hose took 3 of 4 from the Tigers last week and are 10-4 in their last 14 games overall. The Tigers are playing their best ball of the season. They are 7-5 (with a .760 OPS) over their last dozen games.
Detroit is a lean-in-principle on the ML, but any profit potential looks to be drowned out by the juice here. PASS.
Detroit is solid against Giolito's staple pitch, the change-up, and seeing him twice in a week doesn't hurt that advantage angle.
The White Sox recent success has been very much earned on home turf. Chicago is just 1-5 over its last five road games and could be caught flat-footed in the opener of a road trip after 14 of its previous 17 games were at home.
BACK THE TIGERS +1.5 (-120) in a contest with some Under tilt.
The weather forecast sets this one up as a low-humidity, breeze-in-from-left evening. Peg both starters as better than what's indicated by their surface ERAs. Chicago has the better bullpen, but Detroit's relief corps is at its best against right-handed batters and there figures to be a big contingent of righty hitters lined up against Skubal.
TAKE UNDER 9 (-115).
