MLB Betting Trends
The White Sox are just 1-5 in Lopez’ last six starts overall and 0-4 in his last four road starts. They are just 21-47 in their last 68 road games as well.
Boston has won nine of its last 12 home games and five of Porcello’s last six home starts. They also have won 12 of his last 17 starts overall.
The Red Sox are happy to see Porcello look more like his 2016 form than his 2017 form. He can be a huge asset for this team going forward if he can continue to put up the numbers he is. He should be just fine on Sunday against this poor Chicago lineup. The White Sox have been very quiet at the plate.
The Pick: Boston Red Sox -210
