With COVID-19 restrictions being relaxed and life returning to normal for most, we don’t know about you, but this week when you saw the Tigers play in front of a large crowd, it finally felt that way Like maybe, just maybe, baseball is back. What’s the old saying that nothing is more American than baseball, hot dogs, and apple pie? Bring it on!

This weekend, Detroit welcomes one of its finest baseball teams and one of their hottest rivals – the American League Central Division – led by the Chicago White Sox, led by Baseball Hall of Fame manager Tony La Russa and a host of young talent. The White Sox currently hold a win record against the Tigers in 2021, having won 5 out of 7 competitions so far.

In these 7 games, the two teams together scored 54 runs, which averages 7.7 per game. Keep this statistic in mind when looking at the over / under bets on bets made.

Familiarize yourself with baseball betting lines. -150 and +135 ?? What does it mean anyway?

There is a lot to like about this upcoming series and also many bets that can be placed on FOX Bet. So let’s take a look at the upcoming promotion.

Friday: White Sox -165, Tiger +135. O / U: 8.5

In Friday’s match, Tiger’s youngster Tarik Skubal will meet veteran Lucas Giolito. These two pitchers faced each other on June 5th, with Skubal beating Giolito.

It was a close competition with Detroit beating the White Sox 4-3 with Skubal seeing the last 5 innings and Giolito pitch 7. Skubal is one of the rising stars in Detroit’s organization and every outing is a learning experience for him. Giolito has already faced Detroit twice in 2021 and suffered defeat in both competitions.

The Sox open the series as favorites at -165 and the Tigers +135 with the over / under on runs at 8.5.

Saturday: White Sox -140, Tigers +115. O / U: 9.5

At the game on Saturday afternoon, Dylan Cease from Chicago meets Jose Urena from Detroit. Just like in the competition on Friday, these two pitchers faced each other before this season, only last Sunday (June 6th) Chicago won 3-0.

Unlike his colleague Lucas Giolito, Cease REALLY likes to face the Tigers this year and has thrown 14 innings in two starts that didn’t allow for a 19 strikeout run – very impressive numbers. Urena was a nice edition for the Tigers in 2021 and has a 1-1 record against the White Sox in 2021.

Despite Cease’s dominance over Detroit, this game is a little closer than Friday, but the Sox still have the edge at -140 while the Tigers are +115. But can we expect more points in this case? The over / under for runs is 9.5.

Sunday: White Sox -155, Tigers +130. O / U: 8.5

The rubber match on Sunday shows Carlos Rodon against Matt Boyd with a scheduled start time of 1:10 p.m. Rodon started 2021 with a bang, setting a 5-0 record and scoring a no-hitter against the Cleveland Indians on April 14 (would have been a perfect game but a punch in the 9th inning cost him). Rodon got a start against Detroit in 2021 and has been dominant by posting six shutout innings while beating 12 Tigers.

For Matt Boyd, his lone start against the White Sox in Game 2 of a double header in April resulted in him only having 1 inning while giving up 2 runs on 3 hits. Boyd accepted the defeat that night, as did his team, which lost 11-0.

As in the previous two games, Chicago has the edge at -155 and the Tigers are +130. The over / under is 8.5.

Do you remember the average number of runs per game? That could have an impact on how you bet on any of those three games this weekend.
