It’s hard to find a more disappointing duo of MLB teams playing on Tuesday’s slate. 

And it’s not because both of these teams are horrible, instead it’s because both have criminally underachieved in the 2022 season. The Chicago White Sox were the preseason favorites to win the AL Central, yet they currently are just 76-77 and sit 10 games out of the division lead. They are on the brink of elimination from the postseason after losing six straight games. 

As for the Minnesota Twins, Chicago’s opponent on Tuesday, the team squandered a division lead and has lost eight of its last 10 to fall five games below .500, all but eliminating it from postseason contention. 


Chicago has veteran Lance Lynn (7-6, 4.02 ERA) on the mound in this game against Minnesota’s Bailey Ober (1-3, 3.71 ERA). 

Let’s jump into the odds for this matchup as both teams try to stave off elimination.

White Sox vs. Twins Prediction and Pick

Lynn didn’t pitch great in his last start against the Cleveland Guardians, allowing nine hits and giving up six runs (three earned) across six innings of work. 

Despite that, he’s been a very solid pitcher in the second half of the season, pitching to a 2.18 ERA over his last 10 starts. 

This is just the third start Ober will make since June 1, so there isn’t much to go off of. He’s been decent in September, allowing three runs and eight hits across two starts (10 innings pitched). 

Both of these teams have to win to give themselves any chance at a miracle run for a wild card spot, but I lean towards Lynn here, as the White Sox had won four straight starts by him prior to his last outing. 

Ober also hasn’t given the Twins much length lately, so you’re relying heavily on a bullpen that is in the middle of the pack in terms of ERA this season.
