Twins vs White Sox Opening Odds & Analysis

Opening Odds

The White Sox enter Tuesday’s contest as a the favorite at -130. Despite a thrilling 6-3 victory in the game prior, the Twins sit as +110 underdogs. The total sits at nine runs, down from 9.5 earlier. The UNDER has also hit in four of Minnesota’s last five games.

Starting Pitchers

Chris Archer gets the ball for the Twins, with his club dropping eight of his 15 outings. The right-hander has a respectable 3.08 ERA this season, despite plenty of red flags this season (4.4 BB/9 and a 4.89 FIP).

Due to his injury history, Archer hasn’t worked past five innings in any start this season, though he’s been excellent in his last six outings (1.67 ERA with only two home runs allowed).

The White Sox counter with Michael Kopech as their starting pitcher. The electric righty’s numbers, 2.78 ERA and 5.2 H/9, look very clean, but a deeper dig tells us he’s struggled over his last few starts. Kopech has a 5.51 ERA in his last three outings which were all losing efforts. Chicago is also 5-9 SU in games he starts.

As Even As It Gets Between The Clubs

Dating back to last season, the White Sox and Twins are very evenly matched. In their last 20 meetings, the clubs are 10-10 while the total has gone OVER 11 times. Monday’s contest solidified their evenness, as the two teams battled into extras, with Minnesota winning 6-3 in 10 innings.

Kopech Owns the Twins

Despite his losing record SU, Kopech’s been able to keep opposing offenses in check. The UNDER has hit in eight of his 14 starts this season, including his last two outings. It’s not a massive sample, but Kopech has diced the Twins in his short MLB career, posting a 0.75 ERA with 15 strikeouts and only one home run allowed in 12 innings.

Twins vs White Sox Pick & Insights

White Sox: Keys to Victory

While Archer is prone to allowing free passes, the White Sox draw walks at just 6.4%, the worst mark in baseball. In his last start, Archer coughed up a season-high six walks, and the Twins wound up dropping that contest. If the Sox are selective, good things will happen — though bettors should note that patience isn’t historically Chicago’s strong suit, given their low walk rate.

Twins: Key to Victory 

“Early and often” is a term you hear a lot in baseball — that’ll be the key for Minnesota on Tuesday. The Twins have recorded an MLB-leading 254 hits in the first three innings of games this season, which is excellent for bettors, considering Kopech has been slightly more vulnerable (3.18 ERA) during those early frames in 2022.
