#918 ASA TOP PLAY ON 10* Chicago White Sox -135 over Minnesota Twins, Wednesday at 8:10 PM ET - Battle of southpaws here. The Twins have hit decently against lefties this season with a .244 batting average to rank in the middle of the pack in the majors. However, the White Sox have been much better as their .300 batting average versus left-handed pitching ranks them #1 in MLB! The White Sox are 7-1 this season when facing a southpaw starter while the Twins are 4-8 versus lefties this season. Overall Minnesota has struggled this season with a 12-21 overall record and they are below .500 in night games too while Chicago is a fantastic 15-6 this season under the lights. Even though JA Happ has good numbers so far this season for the Twins, he has faced a number of weaker lineups and he is in for a real test here. Odds are that this will not go well for Happ as he has an 8.79 ERA in his last 3 starts against the White Sox. As for Chicago starter Dallas Keuchel, he entered this season on a 35-18 run in home decisions. He has a 1.10 ERA in his last three starts versus the Twins and has a 4-2 record in his career decisions versus Minnesota. Keuchel enters this start with a 2.25 ERA over his last 4 starts overall and has averaged 6 innings per outing. These are two teams trending in opposite directions this season and the lefty versus lefty factor and home field edge make this one a strong play on the hosts. This one will be all White Sox per our computer math model. We will grab the home team at a reasonable price on the money line in this one and bet CHICAGO WHITE SOX -135
