1* free play Tigers/White Sox "under".

Detroit and Chicago open a three game set on Monday and each sides' "ace" will be on the bump.

I believe the table is set for a classic pitchers duel.

Max Scherzer (19-2, 2.88 ERA)

Scherzer is still looking for his 20th win of the year after suffering a loss to the Red Sox on Tuesday despite allowing just two earned runs off five hits and three walks over seven innings of work. Scherzer would also strike out 11 in his team's eventual 2-1 setback.

Scherzer has been exceptional on the road this year, 8-1 with a 2.17 ERA.

Chris Sale (10-12, 2.97 ERA)

Sale is coming off a no-decision vs. the Yanks on Tuesday giving up three runs off five hits with a walk over 7 1/3's innings while striking out six.

The southpaw has given up just three earned runs over his last 15 1/3's innings of work to go along with 18 K's.

Sale is just 6-5 in front of the home town crowd this year but with a very respectable 2.55 ERA.

The Bottom line

Four of these team's last six in the season series have fallen below the posted number and all signs do indeed point to another low-scoring affair.

Good luck, Nick Parsons
