According to oddsmakers from online sports book BetDSI, the Royals are -119 money line favorites over the White Sox, who are +110 money line home underdogs. The total, meanwhile, is currently sitting at 9 runs for this 8:10PM ET start time.

Bruce Chen will take the hill for Kansas City sporting a 1-2 record and a nasty 6.46 ERA, while the White Sox will counter with Scott Carroll, who is 4-5 with a 4.19 ERA. Chen has yet to record a win in three appearances since rejoining the Royals’ rotation last month, while Carroll is coming off back-to-back victories after giving up three hits in 11 2/3 scoreless innings over his last two outings.

Despite Chen’s poor record and high ERA, the Royals are 4-0 in his last four starts versus the White Sox and 6-1 in his last seven road starts versus the Sox. Kansas City is also 10-2 in its last 12 road games versus Chicago and 4-1 in its last five meetings overall versus the White Sox. The Royals are also 12-3 in Chen’s last 15 starts when they’re favored.

 On the other side, the White Sox are just 2-10 in their last 12 games versus AL Central opponents.
