MLB Odds: Phillies – White Sox prediction, pick, how to watch
The Philadelphia Phillies and Chicago White Sox split their doubleheader, with the Phillies winning the first game and the White Sox taking the second. Both teams are now vying for their eighth win of the season in the final game of the series. FanDuel’s MLB odds show the Phillies as favorites, with a -1.5 (+136) spread, while the White Sox have a +1.5 (-164) spread. The over/under is set at 8.5 (-105) for the game. The game will be televised on NBCSP/NBCSCH and can be streamed on MLB.TV.
The Phillies have been inconsistent this season, with some players performing well while others struggle. Bryson Stott is hitting well and currently sixth in all of baseball in batting average, but he is being left on base frequently, contributing to the team’s average of 4.28 batters left on base per game, which is 29th in MLB. Brandon Marsh is hitting .358 and second on the team in RBIs, while Alec Bohm leads the team in RBIs with 16 on the season. Taijuan Walker is starting for the Phillies and has improved with each start this season, but his swing and miss rate has been low.
The White Sox’s bullpen has been a weak spot this season, with a 7.04 ERA and 1.89 WHIP, but yesterday’s game against the Phillies showed improvement. The team’s batting average is currently 11th in the league at .254. Andrew Benintendi and Luis Robert Jr. were effective in setting the table for the team’s hitters in yesterday’s games, with Jake Burger hitting a three-run shot in the first inning of the second game. Mike Clevinger is starting for the White Sox and has had mixed performances this season, but if he pitches well, it will be difficult for the Phillies to score.
Ultimately, the prediction and pick for the game is a competitive, lower-scoring affair, with the White Sox coming out on top with a +1.5 (-164) spread and Under 8.5 (-115).
