Notes On The Los Angeles Dodgers
After suffering a devastating three-game home sweep against the Pittsburgh Pirates, the Los Angeles Dodgers split a 4 MLB betting game home stand with the New York Mets. They entered the interleague series vs. Chicago with a 35-19 record, leading the NL West.
The Dodgers have the league’s highest offensive output (5.37 runs per game), as well as the highest OPS (.761) and second-lowest ERA (2.91). Wednesday’s starter will be Tony Gonsolin, a 28-year-old righty who has yet to lose in 2022.
Gonsolin is 6-0 with a sparkling 1.59 ERA and 0.88 WHIP through his first ten starts (51 innings) this season for the Blue Jays. Last Thursday, Tony threw a gem in a 2-0 win over the Mets, allowing just two hits and a walk while he strikes out 7 batters over six shutout innings.
Notes On The Chicago White Sox
The Chicago White Sox won their sixth game in a row on Sunday, June 24, to wrap up a three-game series at Tropicana Field. It was their second win in a row and third in their previous nine games overall, and the Chi Sox have gone 3-6 over their previous nine games at Guaranteed Rate Field.
The White Sox are still without Tim Anderson (groin) and Eloy Jimenez (hamstring), who are a key component of their offense. The White Sox have scored 3.65 runs per game this season, which is 27th in the MLB (3.65 runs per game).
The White Sox do not have a strong pitching staff. In the last 11 games overall, the White Sox have an ugly 5.88 ERA, 1.73 WHIP, and .293 batting average against. Johnny Cueto will start on Wednesday and is 0-2 with a 2.92 ERA and 1.26 WHIP in four online sportsbook betting starts.
White Sox Vs. Dodgers 2022 Prediction: Los Angeles Dodgers -165
Johnny Cueto will have to back off at some point, but for the time being, I’m sticking with the clever righty. Johnny Cueto will face a difficult task against the Dodgers’ powerful lineup.
The Dodgers have a .984 OPS in 123 at-bats against Cueto, who has given up nine runs (eight earned) in his past two starts and 12.2 innings of work. In addition, the Dodgers are destroying righties on offense in 2022, posting a .253/.337/.438 triple slash with a 122 OPS+.
The White Sox have a bad batting average against right-handed pitchers in 2022. I think Tony Gonsolin will shut them down. So I lean toward the under, but the Dodgers’ lineup could easily beat Johnny Cueto.
The Los Angeles Dodgers’ bullpen has struggled recently, posting a 4.32 ERA and .317 batting average against. On the other hand, the White Sox’s relievers have a sparkling 2.60 ERA and 3.03 FIP with a .324 batting average.
