Texas Rangers vs. Chicago White Sox, 7:10 p.m. ET

Moneyline pick: Rangers +143

The run line for Saturday night’s game is set at -1.5, with the White Sox listed as the favorite at home. They are favored on the moneyline at -167. The White Sox opened up their three-game set with a 9-7 win on Friday. Chicago has now won two-straight games and four out of their last five.

Yermin Mercedes led the way with a perfect 4-for-4 at the plate with three RBI, while Yoan Moncada was 3-for-4 with a home run in the eighth inning. As a team, the White Sox was 8-14 with RISP and racked up 14 strikeouts from their pitchers. In regards to tonight’s game, the Rangers are hoping that Gibson can give them a better outing than rookie pitcher Dane Dunning.

Gibson has a record of 2-0, an ERA of 2.53, and 18 strikeouts in 21.1 IP. The 33-year-old has pitched well against the White Sox over his career. In 17 starts, Gibson is 9-5 with an ERA of 2.98. Meanwhile, Keuchel has a record of 1-0 with an ERA of 5.68. He has struck out only 10 in 19.0 IP, but has given up 19 hits, seven walks, and three home runs. Left-handed batters are hitting a sizzling .294/.333/.588 off of Keuchel this season.

Player Prop: Dallas Keuchel over 4.5 strikeouts (+110)

Even though we are picking the Rangers to pull off the upset Saturday night, Dallas Keuchel could begin to figure out some things on the mound. This season, the veteran pitcher has yet to record more than five strikeouts in a game. However, he’s facing a Rangers’ offense that leads the majors in strikeouts (218) and that had 14 strikeouts on Friday night.
