Chicago White Sox Fantasy Spin
Yonder Alonso went 2-for-3 with a home run and three RBI to help the White Sox down the Royals 6-3 on Sunday. Alonso followed Jose Abreu's homer in the fourth inning with one of his own, his first homer of the year. He also plated a run with a bases-loaded walk in the sixth inning, one of two walks on the day, and he knocked an RBI single in the seventh. Alonso is looking to prove his 2018 season, and not his breakout 2017 season, was the outlier after a trade from the Indians to the White Sox this past winter.
Cleveland Indians Fantasy Spin
Carlos Santana went 4-for-4 with three RBI in Sunday's loss to the Twins. The Indians collected just six hits on the afternoon, with Santana accounting for two-thirds of them. The big blow came in the eighth inning, when Santana cleared the bases with a three-run double to get the Tribe on the board. The Indians lineup is kind of a mess right now but should improve as they add some pieces, and the 32-year-old figures to be in the middle of it all year for the Cleveland club.
MLB Betting Trends
The White Sox are just 14-40 in their last 54 games when they face a starter with a WHIP less than 1.15.
The Indians are 59-27 in their last 86 home games versus a right-handed starter.
The over has been profitable when Mike Clevinger is on the hill for the Indians, cashing in all four of his last four starts and in all four of his last four home outings. The over is also 4-1-1 in the White Sox’ last six games dating back to last season and is 4-1-1 in their last six divisional games.
The Pick: White Sox/Indians over 7.5
