The Chicago White Sox have grossly underperformed this season, and that was pretty evident after leaving Thursday nights matchup with a 2-1 loss to the Tigers. The White Sox just finished a bad stretch that included a series loss over the weekend to the Twins. They were over -185 favorites with Dylan Cease on the mound vs the Tigers, but after plating just 1 run, a loss was inevitable.
Game 2 takes place Friday night at Guaranteed Rate Field. The White Sox and Tigers find themselves in the 3rd and 4th position in the American League Central, and this series could go a long way for either team to close the gap they have from the Twins and Guardians.

This pitching matchup is interesting because both Tarik Skubal and Lucas Giolito have not played as advertised. Tarik Skubal comes into this matchup with a 4.06 ERA, much of that has been because of his last 5 starts. His first 11 starts featured 9 games where he allowed 3 or fewer, including 6 games where Skubal didn’t allow a run. The story has been quite different recently, as he has allowed 4 or more in 4 of his last 5 games.
Lucas Giolito has really been bogged down by 4 bad starts, but the other 10 starts were really good. The Giolito experience isn’t really working like they had hoped. The White Sox have lost 4 of the last 5 games that were started by Giolito. While that is not a good sign, the Tigers are just 14-37 in their 5 meetings vs the White Sox.
The current total is set to 8 at FanDuel. The under has hit at a 4-1-1 clip over the last 6 meetings in Chicago. Fanduel Sportsbook might be the place to wager on this total. Your first bet after signing up is no sweat, quite literally, up to $1,000. No code needed to redeem the promotion. If that first bet is graded as a loss, the FanDuel Sportsbook will load $1,000 in free bets into your account.
Until next time, enjoy the ride.
