Chicago White Sox at Detroit Tigers MLB Sunday Night Online Betting Odds

Tigers Send Justin Verlander to Hill with First-Place on the Line

Verlander, last year’s AL Cy Young and AL MVP winner, takes the hill for Detroit against the White Sox Sunday night on the national stage. Verlander will look to pitch the Tigers into a tie for first with the White Sox in the AL Central. He is 12-7 with a 2.80 ERA this season and has 13 wins in his career against the division rival White Sox. Verlander has not won a game in almost a month as his last came against the Yankees on August 6.

White Sox Send Brilliant Lefty Chris Sale to Tame Tigers

Sale has 15 wins against 5 losses and a 2.81 ERA this season as he makes his case for the AL Cy Young in 2012. He has struggled in his last three starts, with an ERA at 4.42. Sale has not pitched well against his division rivals either, posting a 1-2 record wit ha 4.05 ERA. The White Sox hope that Sale can throw one of his gems Sunday night and tame the Tigers bats to expand their miniscule lead in the AL Central.

Tonight’s nationally featured game between the White Sox and the Tigers is our pick for the day. We like Justin Verlander and the Tigers at Comerica Park to knock off the White Sox. has the over/under set at 7 runs. With these two dominant arms taking the mound we will go with the under 7 Sunday night.
