Detroit Tigers vs Chicago White Sox

March 30, 2024

The Detroit Tigers (1-0) and Chicago White Sox (0-1) will compete in game two of their three-game series on Saturday, March 30 at 2:10 PM ET at Guaranteed Rate Field in Chicago, Illinois. The Tigers are favored to win their second in a row with a moneyline at -140.

Detroit Tigers Betting Preview

The Tigers had great momentum coming into this season with success from spring games. This helped push them to a 1-0 win over the White Sox for game one, as they scored the only run in the game in the third inning.

They came in second in the American League Central last season, where they went 78-84 overall. They have another great opportunity to do well, especially as they are in one of the weaker divisions. However, they cannot be complacent with being in a weaker division and must take advantage of being here.

The Tigers only had a .188 batting average in their first matchup. They accumulated just the one run on six hits and kept an on-base percentage at .229. They will likely need a stronger performance offensively to get this done.

Their defense was great in keeping the White Sox off of the bases and out of scoring position. In addition, they also had a slugging percentage at .188 which will need to improve quite a bit.

Chicago White Sox Betting Preview

The White Sox did not have the worst possible game in the world and still only lost by one run. However, they had bad momentum with a string of losses from the spring games and have yet to break the cycle.

They finished fourth and two spots behind the Tigers in the division last season. Again, they could have another tough season ahead of them but it helps that they are in a weaker division overall. Assuming they can improve offensively, they should have a shot.

If they cannot provide more offense than their .100 batting average then they are in for a long season. They were only able to put up three hits in their opener, which means they must stay aggressive offensively if they want any shots at success.

Surprisingly, they only had one walk and 11 strikeouts. Their pitching seemed solid, but their biggest issue now is getting runs on the board. They must get runners in scoring position if they want any chances at success.
