Detroit / Chicago White Sox OVER 9
I'm recommending a play on the OVER in Saturday's AL Central action that has the White Sox visiting the Tigers. Chicago were held to 2-hits on Thursday in the series finale against the Orioles, but outside of that they have been swinging the bats well. The White Sox had 12 hits on Wednesday, 11 yesterday, and 48 hits over their last 5 games combined.
I look for them to keep the offense going here against Detroit veteran Francisco Liriano, who has a mere 4.64 ERA and 1.406 WHIP in 4 home starts. The Tigers should also be locked in at the plate in this one. Chicago are sending out left-hander Hector Santiago, who has an ugly 7.11 ERA and 1.684 WHIP in 4 starts. Note that Detroit are scoring 5.1 runs / game and hitting .288 as a team against left-handed starters this season.
The OVER is 7-2 in the Tigers' last 9 home games vs left-handed starters. It's also 9-1 in the White Sox's last 10 road games vs bad teams and 20-8-1 in the last 29 games in this series played at Detroit. Take the OVER!
