MLB odds on Thursday favor the Chicago White Sox in the finale of their two-game series against the Detroit Tigers.
The White Sox have owned the Tigers recently, winning 13 of the last 20 games between the two teams in MLB betting odds. Let’s take a look at this Thursday matchup between the Tigers and White Sox.
MLB odds trends show that before this series began the White Sox had won 13 of the last 20 games between the two teams. Last season when the teams met in September, the White Sox swept the Tigers in Chicago, winning 8-2, 11-7 and 4-2 as MLB odds results show.
Detroit normally wins their games versus the MLB betting odds with offense. They have been in the Top 10 in runs scored for much of the season as MLB odds numbers indicate. The pitching for Detroit has not been that great but it has improved in recent weeks. Detroit is still an iffy proposition on the road though in MLB odds and they have no true stopper who is feared by opposing teams. Justin Verlander was supposed to be that guy but too often he is inconsistent.
MLB betting odds information tells us that Chicago is a similar team to Detroit with an offense that can be dangerous and a pitching staff with question marks. The Sox have Carlos Quentin and a number of other players who can hit home runs but sometimes the Sox struggle versus the MLB odds if the long ball is not present. Chicago is also getting older as Jermaine Dye, Paul Konerko, Jim Thome and A.J. Pierzynski have already seen their best years. The pitching staff is very similar to Detroit’s in that no real stopper exists. Mark Buehrle is supposed to be the ace but like Verlander, he can be inconsistent versus the MLB odds.
The MLB odds over/under has been leaning to the over when these teams meet. The over is 10-8-2 versus the MLB odds in the last 20 meetings between the two teams and 5-4-1 in the last 10 games at Chicago. With these two offense and inconsistent pitching staffs it would seem logical that the MLB odds totals in this series would go over.
