MLB Betting Trends
The Yankees are 13-3 in their last 16 Friday games. New York is 5-0 in the last five Sabathia Friday starts.
The White Sox are 8-2 in their last 10 home games. Chicago is 8-0 in the last eight Giolito starts.
Giolito has gone from a top prospect to what looked like a bust to one of the best pitchers in baseball over the span of a few years. He's been ridiculously good this season for Chicago and I'm not about to fade him tonight. The White Sox typically hit lefties pretty well and I think they'll get enough to support their ace here.
