The Chicago White Sox will try to win their second game in a row when they meet the Detroit Tigers on Wednesday in Game 1 of a day-night doubleheader. The White Sox (39-42) have won three of the five meetings this season against the Tigers (27-52) and are 2-0 against them in games played at Chicago. The game is scheduled for 2:10 p.m. ET from Guaranteed Rate Field in the Windy City, where the forecast is calling for a chance of rain and temperatures in the 70s. The White Sox lead the all-time series 565-517 in games played in their home ballpark and are favored at -139 on the money line, meaning a $139 wager would net $100. That’s down slightly from an open of -144. The over-under for total runs scored is 9.5 in the latest White Sox vs. Tigers odds.

Offensively, the Tigers have had a number of hot hitters, including first baseman Miguel Cabrera, who was 5-for-9 in a three-game weekend series against the Nationals.
