The baseball action continues on Thursday as we feature yet another MLB Daily Double. We have now correctly predicted our MLB Daily Double picks for three consecutive nights, making it our longest streak thus far. We are looking to build on this fantastic record with another two featured picks. As always, make sure you follow us on our social media platforms to stay up to date with all our picks and predictions.

Chicago White Sox vs Texas Rangers (August 22 – 20:10 EST)

Expected Pitchers: Ross Detwiler (1-3, ERA: 6.10) vs Ariel Jurado (6-9, ERA: 5.38)

The White Sox host the Rangers in the first match of the series on Thursday evening. The two teams are both coming into this game with a win to show for in their last match. The Rangers settled last night’s game against the Angels in the last inning. On the other hand, the White Sox comfortably won their match 4-0 against the Twins. Chicago hasn’t been the best team at home this season, however it seems like they are bouncing back with 3 wins in their last 5 matches at the Guaranteed Rate Field. On the other hand, Texas is coming off a heavily competed series against the Angels, and they had to make the trip to Chicago for tonight’s game. We’re expecting a tight match between the two teams, and therefore we will give an advantage to the White Sox on the runline.


Oakland Athletics vs New York Yankees (August 22 – 21:37 EST)

Expected Pitchers: Tanner Roark (7-8, ERA: 4.01) vs Masahiro Tanaka (9-6, ERA: 4.56)

The third and final match of the series between the Athletics and Yankees takes place on Thursday evening at the Coliseum. The home team has the advantage in the series winning both games thus far. The Yankees on the other hand, have lost three consecutive matches, which is unlike them. They will look towards their starting pitcher Masahiro Tanaka to turn their fortunes around. He has been exceptional for the Yankees as of late, winning 11 of his last 12 starts. Furthermore, the Yankees are 44-18 in their last 62 matches against a right-handed starter. Despite their recent form, New York is still leading in the American League standings but must be careful as the Astros are quickly approaching them. We think that they will have what it takes to bounce back from this negative period and earn a win in tonight’s game.
