The Minnesota Twins will be trying to increase their lead in the AL Central when they take on the Chicago White Sox in the second game of their three-game weekend series on Saturday afternoon. The game will be played at Target Field in Minnesota, and it is scheduled to begin at 2:10 PM. ET.

Kyle Gibson, 4-2 with a 4.47 ERA, will get the start for the Twins. The White Sox have not announced their starter for the game.

Twins Going for Fifth Consecutive Win

The Twins are one of the hottest teams in baseball right now, winning their last four games and nine of their last 10 games. They will be going for their fifth win in a row and 10th win in their last 11 games when they face the White Sox on Saturday.

Minnesota is one of the best offensive teams in baseball this season. The team’s .272 batting average is second in the league. Their .340 on-base percentage is sixth, while their .516 slugging percentage is the best in the league. The Twins have scored a league-leading 289 runs this season.

Eddie Rosario has done the heavy lifting for the Twins with a .271 batting average and team-leading 14 homers and 39 RBI.

The Twins’ pitching has not been as good as their offense, but they have managed to do a solid job. Opponents are batting .246 against the Twins, which is 18th. Their 3.89 ERA is ninth, while their 24 quality starts are fifth in the league.

In his last start, Gibson gave up nine hits and four earned runs in six innings as the Twins lost to the Seattle Mariners 7-4. He has given up seven runs in his last two starts and the team will need a better effort from him if they want to keep their winning streak going.

White Sox Going For Third Win In Four Games

The White Sox managed to bounce back from a stretch in which they lost four of five games and have now won two of their last three games. They will try to keep the good pay going with a win over the Twins, which will reduce their deficit in the AL Central and give them their third win in their last four games.

Chicago hasn’t played very well offensively. The team’s .251 batting average is 14th in the league, their .313 on-base percentage is 20th, while their .406 slugging percentage is 19th in the league. The White Sox have scored 213 runs, which is 19th in the league.

Jose Abreu has been Chicago’s best offensive player. He has a .263 batting average, 12 homers, and 40 RBI.

The White Sox have also struggled from the mound. Opponents have a .262 batting average against their pitching staff, which is 25th in the league. Their 4.91 ERA is 22nd, while their 18 quality starts is 18th in the league.

The Bottom Line What to bet on this game.

Full-Game Side Bet
Rating:

The Twins have won nine of their last 10 games and five of Gibson’s last six home starts against teams with losing records, while the White Sox have lost five of their last seven games when playing the second game of a series and six of their last eight Saturday games.

Prediction: Minnesota Twins -1.5

Full-Game Total Pick
Rating:

The Twins and White Sox are averaging 13.67 combined runs per game in their last three games.
