Money Line: -134.00 Chi White Sox (Away)
The White Sox held on for a 3-2 win last night, but I expect them to blowout the Royals on Saturday night.
The visitors go with Gio Gonzalez, who is 0-0 with a 14.73 ERA after allowing six runs off seven hits over 3.2 innings in his season debut last Sunday. Gonzalez though was forced into action after starter Reynaldo Lopez was injured. Now with the proper preperation time, I expect the veteran Gonzalez to come in focussed on the task at hand.
Ronald Bolanos is 0-1 with a 0.00 ERA for the Royals after allowing two runs off three hits over two innings vs. the Indians on Sunday. The book is still out on Bolanos though, who was 0-2 with a 5.95 ERA last year.
The White Sox were a "sexy" underdog pick by many before the season started and they've yet to even hit their stride. I expect this hard-hitting Sox line-up to chase Bolanos early; we're laying the price.
Good luck, NP
