The White Sox (21-30) didn’t have the greatest start to the season, but have turned things around as of late as winners of seven of their last nine and in the mediocre AL Central that’s been good enough to close the gap to 5.5 games on the 1st place Twins. The Tigers (22-25) sit ahead of Chicago in the division and are just 2.5 GB from Minnesota making this a big weekend 4-game series.
Before Betting on White Sox vs Tigers
Chicago was just 7-20 in April, but have gone 13-9 in May as they prepare for their first meeting of the season against Detroit. The White Sox didn’t win a series the first month of the season, but have now won three straight heading into the weekend at Comerica Park.
Detroit needs a solid showing against the South Siders as the Tigers are just 3-4 over their last season. Detroit has one of the worst offenses in baseball but have tallied 6+ runs in each of their last three wins.
Chicago’s starting pitching has improved drastically over the past month, a trend Lucas Giolito (3-3, 3.62) hopes to continue on Thursday night. Giolito has allowed 2ER or less in four of his last five starts and has shown great command in allowing just 12 walks total in his 10 appearances in 2023.
Giolito will be countered by Alex Faedo (0-2, 4.60 ERA) making his fourth start of the season. The Tigers are 0-3 this month when Faedo takes the hill.

White Sox vs Tigers Prediction & Pick
Not a bad price tag on the White Sox here. Sure Chicago is just 9-17 on the road this season but they’re the hotter team and have a pretty significant edge in the starting pitching matchup.
