Chicago White Sox vs. Seattle Mariners Betting Prediction
The White Sox send RHP Lance Lynn to the hill against Seattle’s 21st ranked scoring offense on Monday night (4.20 RSPG), who’s arguably having the worst campaign of his 11-year career sitting 4-5 with a 4.70 ERA in 15 starts this season (1.14 WHIP), despite posting an impressive 3-1 record and 2.45 ERA across the month of August (6 GS, 0.85 WHIP).
On the flip side, the Mariners send LHP Marco Gonzales to the mound against Chicago’s 19th ranked scoring offense tonight (4.25 RSPG), who’s posted solid numbers for Seattle this season sitting 10-12 with a 3.99 ERA across 26 starts (1.38 WHIP), despite surrendering five or more runs in four of his last nine outings (5-3, 5.33 ERA).
I’ll take the under here, as Lynn has tossed five innings or more and allowed two runs or less in four straight outings for the White Sox (1.82 ERA, 0.77 WHIP), and he’s 3-1 with a 2.31 ERA in six career appearances against Seattle (35 IP, 9 ER); setting the stage for a low-scoring battle against the Mariners and Gonzales, who’s 3-0 with a 2.60 ERA in his last three starts (17.1 IP, 5 ER), and he’s 2-0 with a 1.46 ERA in two career appearances against Chicago (0.89 WHIP).
Score Prediction: White Sox 3, Mariners 2
Best Bet: Under 7.5 (-110)
