MLB Free Betting Pick Twins VS White Sox

4/7 MLB Free Betting Pick Twins VS White Sox

Minnesota -103    Chicago -107   O/U 8.5

The Minnesota Twins travel to Chicago Friday to take on the White Sox in game 1 of their 3 game weekend series. The Twins were picked to finish last in the AL Central again but they sure didn’t look like it as they were bashing the Royals in a 3 game sweep by a combined score of 21-5. The Over went 1-1-1 in the 3 games. On the other side, the White Sox finished in 4th place last season and was not picked for much improvement after trading their ace Chris Sale in the offseason. Chicago had 2 of their opening 4 games against Detroit rained out. They split the other 2 losing 6-3 and winning 11-2. Both of their games have gone OVER the total. 

For this RideTheHotHand.com free pick we are going after the run total of 8.5. The pitching matchup in this game pits Minnesota’s 4th pitcher Phil Hughes vs Chicagos #3 man Derek Holland. Just typing those 2 names makes us think of home runs and a bunch of runs in general. Both pitchers have a career ERA of over 4.5. Hughes was having an awful 2016 going 3-9 in his first 12 starts and giving up 39 runs in 59 innings (including 11 home runs) before shoulder surgery mercifully shut down his season in June. After 10 months of rehab he won’t be good here. Chicago goes with Holland who pitched so bad for Texas at the end of last season he was demoted to the bullpen and dropped in the offseason. The White Sox got him out of necessity knowing he’s not very good. These 2 offenses are locked in early and these 2 pitchers stink. Take the Over. THE PICK: OVER 8.5 RUNS.
