CHICAGO, IL (The Spread) – The under has been red hot when the Rangers meet the White Sox, which will happen again tonight at 8:10PM ET.
According to oddsmakers from online sports book BetDSI, the White Sox are -138 money line favorites over the Rangers, who are +127 money line road underdogs. The total for tonight’s game is currently sitting at 9 runs.
The Rangers will start Nick Martinez, who is 1-7 with a 5.08 ERA, versus the White Sox’ Hector Noesi, who is 5-8 with a 5.21 ERA. Martinez is 1-3 with a 3.66 ERA in 11 appearances (eight starts) on the road this year, while Noesi is coming off a rough outing in which he was crushed for a six-run first-inning in a loss to the Tigers.
Despite this potential hitter-friendly matchup, the under has been a solid play for bettors when these two teams meet.

The under is also 4-1 in the White Sox’ last five games versus AL West opponents and 3-1-1 in Noesi’s last five starts versus a team with a losing record.
Meanwhile, the under is also 5-1-1 in the Rangers’ last seven road games, 4-1 in their last five games as a road underdog and 4-1 in their last five during Game 1 of a series.
