Odds, picks & predictions
Run Line: White Sox -1.5 (+150)
Run total: 8.5
Moneyline odds: White Sox -135, Twins +115
Moneyline pick: Twins +115
Both pitchers have struggled this season with big ERAs, and the Twins score just 0.1 runs per game more than the White Sox, so this one could go either way. Without a tremendous advantage on either side, this isn’t a bad spot to just go with the team getting the larger payout with so many variables to consider.
Player prop pick: Dylan Bundy under 2.5 strikeouts (+105)
The Twins starter has a low strikeout rate as you can tell by where this total is set at. Bundy has a 6.6 K/9, and he struck out just six hitters over his last four starts. The White Sox strike out just 7.7 times per game, which is the sixth most in the league. Take Bundy to go over here.
