The MLB betting action goes on Sunday, July 10, 2022, with the NL Central battle from Guaranteed Rate Field in Chicago, so we have prepared the best Tigers vs. White Sox betting pick and odds.
Detroit and Chicago wrap up a four-game series, and the White Sox open as -181 home favorites on BetDSI Sportsbook. The Tigers are listed as +166 moneyline dogs, while the totals sit at 9.0 runs.
The Cats just stopped their six-game win streak
The Detroit Tigers suffered a heavy 8-0 defeat to the White Sox on Saturday afternoon. The Cats put an end to their six-game winning streak and fell to 36-48 on the season. They’ll try to get back on the winning track Sunday and cinch a four-game set versus Chicago.
Detroit aims for its second straight series victory. The Tigers started this week with a four-game sweep over the Cleveland Guardians. They are hitting a decent .262/.328/.378 in the last seven days, while Detroit’s pitching staff holds a 3.68 ERA and 1.25 WHIP in that span.
Drew Hutchison will take the hill Sunday and meet the White Sox for the third time this season. After pitching a couple of scoreless innings in relief on April 8, Hutchison was charged for a loss in a 5-1 home defeat to the Chi Sox on June 14, allowing two runs on five hits and a pair of walks across four frames. The 31-year-old right-hander is 1-4 with a 4.30 ERA and 1.43 WHIP in three starts and ten relief apps (29.1 innings) in 2022.
The White Sox blanked the Tigers to snap a two-game skid
The Chicago White Sox improved to 40-43 on the season following that 8-0 dismantling of the Tigers. Gavin Sheets clobbered a three-run homer in the top of the first, and the Chi Sox never looked back. It was their second victory in the last six games, as the White Sox continue to play in a shaky form.
Over the last seven days, Chicago has compiled an underwhelming 4.57 ERA, 1.28 WHIP, and .240 opposing batting average. The White Sox have scored 41 runs over seven contests in that span while slashing a strong .295/.347/.429 across 254 at-bats.
Michael Kopech will toe the rubber Sunday, hoping to avoid his fifth consecutive loss. The 26-year-old right-hander is 2-6 with a solid 3.34 ERA and 1.13 WHIP in 15 starts (72.2 innings) this season. However, he’s recorded an awful 6.86 ERA and 7.53 FIP over his previous four outings and 21 frames of work. Kopech met the Tigers on April 10 and tossed four frames of a one-run ball in a 10-1 victory.
- 2-6 in the last eight games against the White Sox
- 16-5 in the last 21 home games against Detroit
Detroit Tigers vs. Chicago White Sox Pick
The White Sox have been pretty unpredictable lately. They should be fired up following Saturday’s 8-0 victory, so I’m backing them to beat the Tigers again and tie this series. Michael Kopech can only pitch better than he did in his last four starts, while the White Sox’s offense is finally showing signs of life.
Also, the White Sox have dominated the Tigers at Guaranteed Rate Field in the last few years. They are 16-5 in the last 21 home contests versus Detroit.
Pick: Take Chicago White Sox at -181
The hosts to win would be my best Tigers vs. White Sox pick, as I think the totals are a tricky wager, especially with the line at 9.0 runs. Despite their recent form at the plate, both offenses have struggled a lot for most of the season. Furthermore, the Tigers’ bullpen owns a shiny 1.89 ERA and 2.86 FIP in July, while the White Sox’s relievers have notched a 4.71 ERA and 3.80 FIP so far this month.
The under is 5-2-1 in the last eight meetings between Detroit and Chicago at Guaranteed Rate Field. Six of their last ten encounters overall have produced less than nine runs in total.
Pick: Go under 9.0 runs at -120
