If the Chicago White Sox are going to have any chance of making the playoffs then they simply must win the baseball wagering series against the Minnesota Twins that begins on Tuesday.
The White Sox lead the Twins by six games in the American League Central. The Sox probably have to not only win this MLB wagering series against the Twins, they need to sweep.
This is the last series of the season between the Twins and the White Sox so for Chicago it is really their last chance. Even if the Twins win one game in this series they would leave Chicago with a five game lead and that would probably be good enough. The Sox have to sweep to cut the lead to three.
Twins 30-21 in one-run games – The Twins are 30-21 in one-run games this season. That is an important stat to look at when betting games late in the season at the Sbg sportsbook since games can be tight.
Tuesday’s Pitching Matchup – The Twins are going with Francisco Liriano while the White Sox are going with John Danks. Each pitcher has won 13 games this season. The advantage is with the Twins since Danks will be pitching on short rest. Liriano has allowed two earned runs or fewer in each of his last three starts. He is 7-0 with a 2.22 ERA in his last 10 starts.
Chicago is 9-12 in its last 21 games against AL Central teams. That stat is important to consider because the White Sox have never reached the playoffs with a losing record in their own division. They are 30-33 on the season against the AL Central. Compare that number to what Minnesota has done against the division. The Twins are 40-20 against AL Central teams this year.
