Point Spread: -1.50 | 115.00 Chi White Sox (Home)
Play On: White Sox -1.5 (+115) (5*)
I hate siding with an overwhelming bet public side like the White Sox are an will be today. However, I am making an exception in this instance. The White Sox will be facing Kansas City lefthander Mike Minor today. Since the start of last season, the White Sox are an incredible 23-1 when facing southpaw starters and outscored those opponents by a decisive average margin of 4.2 runs per game. Kansas City is an atrocious 1-12 in their last 13 games. Furthermore, 9 of those 12 losses have come by 2 runs or more.
Speaking of lefthanded starting pitchers, Carlos Rodon will be on the mound for Chicago today. Rodon has been superb this season while going 5-0 with a microscopic 0.58 ERA while striking out 44 batters in 31.0 innings of work. The White Sox bullpen has a stellar 2.31 ERA throughout their previous 7 games. Chicago has averaged a healthy 7.0 runs scored per game during their previous 7 outings. The White Sox enter today having won 7 of its previous 8 games. Bet on the White for a 5* run line wager.
