Why you should back the White Sox
Despite some shaky-season long numbers (8-9, 5.18 ERA), White Sox starter Dallas Keuchel has only given up four earned runs over his past 11 innings. He's battling for a spot on Chicago's postseason roster, so you can expect him to be locked in for this particular start.
From there, Chicago will hand the ball to a bullpen that ranks No. 2 in the American League in wins above replacement. Chicago's relief corps owns the best strikeout rate in the AL, punching out 10.61 batters per 9 innings, and they also have a top-flight mark in ERA at only 3.93 this season. Given that Tigers starting pitcher Matt Manning has a 5.73 ERA this season and a 6.62 ERA in September, the advantage trends to Chicago.
Why you should back the Tigers
Chicago is strong offensively, but the White Sox are a bottom-10 team in MLB in home runs (179), and Manning has enjoyed some success in recent days. Detroit's starting pitcher for Monday has allowed three earned runs or fewer in eight of his nine home starts this season, and the Tigers are 2-0 against the White Sox in games started by Manning this season.
Offensively, Detroit leads the American League with 34 triples, and that team speed also manifests into a top-10 mark in all of baseball with 77 stolen bases in 2021. Keuchel gave up 11 hits in his last five-inning outing and walked five in his prior start, so there should be some opportunities to get players on base.
