Prediction

White Sox 5, Tigers 3

Money line (ML)

The Tigers took Tuesday’s series opener 5-2 to notch just their second win since April 14. The Detroit offense owns an anemic .551 OPS over the 12-game span.

Look for good things from Rodon in this spot. Velocity is up significantly, and his three-start swinging-strike rate is a tidy 16.0%. The Tigers have flailed their way to a .498 OPS against lefty pitching.

The White Sox are a decent play at -200. PASS on the juice-filled -225 tag.

Run line/Against the spread (ATS)

The ChiSox bullpen figures to be much better than its 4.62 surface ERA would indicate. Peg the ATS play with more value than the money line.

BACK THE WHITE SOX -1.5 (-110).

Over/Under (O/U)

Wednesday’s forecast calls for a cool-down, with temps in the 40s. There’s a bit of an Under lean with a feeling the Chicago bullpen is underrated. The Tigers offense is legitimately awful and the Under is 16-7-1 in their games.

On the number and the price, the Under 8 (-115) lean is razor-thin, actionable perhaps only as a partial unit play.
