Detroit Tigers vs Chicago White Sox Run Total Best Bet: Friday, September 16th

That’s why you follow our resident baseball pundit because Ej came through in the clutch when we needed a big win and he provided that on Thursday. It’s time to gear up for the weekend, and thank God it’s Friday because it’s been a long, emotional week for everyone.

Detroit Tigers vs Chicago White Sox Preview

We call that paid in the 2nd inning, baby, and that’s just how I like it! We needed a nice, easy win, and you, hopefully, took advantage of my bonus offer to cash two tickets on Thursday.

I am hoping the White Sox can help us get paid for a second straight day as I am pointing us to the total in Detroit with Lucas Giolito (10 – 9; 5.18 ERA) & Matt Manning (2 – 2; 3.73 ERA) listed as the expected starters for this game.

Oh, we have done the Giolito fade around this place plenty throughout the campaign, and we will only have a couple more opportunities to do that with the end of the regular season drawing near. The White Sox haven’t been officially eliminated from the playoffs, but the odds are certainly against them to catch Tampa Bay. At 74 – 70 and 6.5 games back in the Wild Card standings, it would take 3 miracles and a possible sighting of baby Jesus for Chicago to sneak into the postseason.

The Tigers were eliminated from the playoffs on opening day this year, and yes, I am kidding but it has been a dismal campaign for Detroit in 2022. At 54 – 89, Detroit is simply hoping to avoid the 100-loss season that no team wants to see happen against them.

All right, well let’s talk about lucky Lucas, because the Sox have lost 3 of his last 5 starts and that 1.49 WHIP is disgusting. You simply cannot put yourself in danger with all of the walks and combined with the 23 homers allowed this year, it’s been a complete mess. Giolito gave up 27 long balls a season ago, and I think he will find his way to that number again this year. When he gives up two homers tonight to a relatively weak Tigers lineup, you’ll know more about why we fade him more often than not.

This total opened at 8, and somehow it fell to 7.5 and we’re going to be taking advantage of that hook tonight. I honestly don’t even think we’ll need the cushion, but I am not one to complain when the line moves in my favour.

Detroit Tigers vs Chicago White Sox Best Bet

We might only get one or two more chances to roll out the Giolito fade, and after seeing the Sox feel good at the plate yesterday I hope they come into Detroit with a mission. Manning has had the luxury of making his last 2 starts against Kansas City, and this is a much better offense than that of the Royals. Manning faced this lineup back on August 13, and 10 hits with 4 runs later he barely got out of the 5th inning. I can handle a similar outing and Giolito will do his part for us.

Have a good weekend, and I’ll see you on Monday. Don’t forget to jump on my NCAA football article with a pair of bets you’ll want on your card for Saturday.
