Los Angeles at Chicago Prediction and Pick

The Dodgers, by their standards, are in a skid. Los Angeles has lost two in a row and five of its past seven games. The White Sox are skidding too, but at no point this year have they got everything to click. Tony La Russa’s squad has won two in row, but had dropped six of its previous seven before that. The Dodgers are a better team with a deeper lineup and the White Sox don’t hit righties well, so we’re going to take Los Angeles moneyline.

Dodgers Moneyline

  • Dodgers are 4-0 in their last 4 games as a road favorite
  • Dodgers are 5-1 in their last 6 road games vs. a right-handed starter
  • Dodgers are 21-7 in their last 28 vs. American League Central
  • Dodgers are 42-17 in their last 59 games following an off day
  • Dodgers are 21-9 in their last 30 interleague road games

Garcia’s 2022 record: (18-12)

Young Righties Set to Square Off

Both teams feature some household names on their pitching staffs, though Tuesday will be a battle of the youngsters. That said, the White Sox’s Michael Kopech is on his way to becoming a well-respected right-hander in this league, though he does come off of his worst start of the year.

Kopech allowed five earned runs in just three innings against the Blue Jays on June 1st. Getting deep into games has been the biggest struggle for the righty looking to take the next step. Kopech has gone beyond five innings just three times in his nine starts, but without question, he has elite ‘stuff’.

Overall, the 26-year-old is 1-2 on the season with a 2.20 ERA and 1.02 WHIP to go along with 43 strikeouts in 45 innings.

Mitch White will counter for the Dodgers, making just the eighth start of his career and fourth this season. In his first eight appearances (three starts), the 27-year-old is 1-1 and has a 4.79 ERA and 1.21 WHIP with 22 strikeouts in 20.2 innings.

White picked up the loss his last time out, giving up three runs in five innings to the Pittsburgh Pirates.

White Sox Trying to Trend, Dodgers Trying to Get Back to Winning Ways

Chicago comes off consecutive games against the Tampa Bay Rays. That’s as good as things have gone on the south side for quite some time this season, as Chicago (25-27) has not been able to string victories together at any point this year.

One major reason for that is the struggling offense. The White Sox have scored the fourth-fewest runs in all of baseball and rank in the bottom half of the league in batting average (17th), slugging percentage (24th), and on-base percentage (27th).

If there has been a bright spot of late, it’s been the youngster Andrew Vaughn. Vaughn is 11-for-26 the past week (.423) with three doubles, one home run, and three RBIs.

For Los Angeles, the offense hasn’t been as potent as normal over the past week, scoring four runs or fewer in seven of the past nine games. Freddie Freeman, Justin Turner, Gavin Lux, and Kevin Pillar have combined for just one home run 18-for-92 with one home run.

Trea Turner has been on fire the whole time, however, recording hits in 27 of his past 28 games.

X-factors to Watch

The player to watch on the Dodgers is Mookie Betts, one of the team’s best against right-handed pitching this year. Betts is hitting .293 (43-for-147) with 11 home runs and is hitting a team-best .308 away from home.

For the White Sox, we’re keeping an eye on Jake Burger. The third baseman went 2-for-5 with two doubles and two RBIs in his last game Sunday and is second on the team with a .308 batting average at Guaranteed Rate Field.
