Cleveland Indians DFS SPIN

Jose Ramirez went 2-for-3 with a homer, three RBI, and two runs scored in Friday’s victory over the White Sox. Ramirez drove in two runs with a single in what ended up being a four-run third inning before adding a solo homer in the eighth for some valuable insurance. The 28-year-old has hit safely in eight straight games while homering in three out of his last four games. He’s well on his way to delivering the early-round value that was expected from him in fantasy leagues.

Chicago White Sox DFS SPIN

Tim Anderson went 2-for-5 with an RBI single, two stolen bases, and a run scored Friday against the Indians. It was a nice bounceback showing after he went 1-for-8 with five strikeouts in Thursday’s doubleheader against the Tigers. Anderson’s contact rate was down this first month, but he’s still provided plenty of value for fantasy managers, hitting .313 with three homers, five RBI, five stolen bases, and 14 runs scored over 16 games.

Indians vs. White Sox Betting Prediction

The under is 11-5 in the last 16 meetings between these two teams and is 6-2 in the last eight meetings in Chicago. The under is also 17-7 in the White Sox’ last 24 divisional games and 12-5 in their last 17 home games when facing an opponent that is starting a right-hander.
