Betting on the Los Angeles Dodgers (-1.5)
The Dodgers have either lost or tied their last two series, so they have that as extra motivation when they go up against Chicago this Wednesday for the second game of this White Sox home stand. Tony Gonsolin gets the nod to start for the Dodgers in this contest, as he looks to stay undefeated this season. So far in 2022, Gonsolin is 6-0 with a 1.59 ERA and 0.88 WHIP in 10 appearances. The last time he was on the mound, Gonsolin pitched six scoreless innings, allowing just two hits and a walk while striking out five in a 2-0 home win over the New York Mets on June 2. He is also 2-0 on the road this season, with just six earned runs in 24 total innings in games wherein he was toeing the rubber in enemy territory. His experience in facing active Dodgers hitters is close to zero, but Gonsolin’s strong numbers this season are enough to take away any concerns. Furthermore, he is getting backed up by an offense that is providing LA’s pitching staff with a majors-best 5.41 runs per nine innings.
Betting on the Chicago White Sox (+1.5)
Record: 26-27 Conference
The White Sox will give the ball once again to veteran righty Johnny Cueto, who is still looking for this first win of the season. The last time he took to the mound, the 36-year-old Cueto went six innings long and allowed three earned runs on seven hits to go with five strikeouts in an 8-3 road loss to the Toronto Blue Jays on June 2. Nevertheless, Cueto owns a 2.92 ERA and has been impressive in terms of keeping opponents from going yard. While he allowed a home run to the Blue Jays, Cueto has a 4.3% HR/FB, which means something, especially when he’s going up against a power-hitting team like the Dodgers, who are ninth in the majors in homers. Also, Cueto is 9-9 in his career against the Dodgers with a 3.76 ERA and 1.17 WHIP. Hitting-wise, the White Sox will look for Tim Anderson, Luis Robert, and Jose Abreu to solve Gonsolin.
The Dodgers win, 6-3.
