Detroit Tigers at Chicago White Sox Free Pick

Detroit Tigers vs Chicago White Sox Prediction 07-23-16

Chris Sale started the All-Star Game for the American League and is tied for the major-league lead in victories, but there is no guarantee he will be remaining with the Chicago White Sox. Speculation is running rampant that Texas is pursuing him for a World Series run. I Because my White Sox prediction is dependent on Sale showing his best stuff today this is good news for me. Sale is signed through next season with club options of $12.5 million in 2018 and $13.5 million in 2019.  Sale will be attempting to help the White Sox win for only the second time in 10 games after the Tigers won the first two games of this four game series.

Tigers vs White Sox Pick

The White Sox with Sale going are my choice in this one. He is just one of the best pitchers in baseball and if he continues to show top stuff he has a chance to be traded to a World Series contender. The Rangers are the top option right now but there are several other teams that could jump in if it looked like he was the missing piece. Never count out teams like the Red Sox or Giants. In this game the starting pitching mismatch is to big for Detroit to overcome, as a result I am laying my bet on the White Sox. I am splitting up my bet with 50% on the White Sox on the money line at (-153) and 50% on the run line (-1.5) at +130. A tip on this. You don’t have to make both bets with the same sportsbook if you have more than one account. I will shop for the best money line and the best run line before betting.

Score Prediction:
White Sox 6 – Tigers 3
