MLB Betting Trends
The Yankees are 2-4 in their last six road games. New York is 2-5 in its last seven versus the AL Central.
The White Sox are 5-2 in their last seven games. Chicago is 5-2 in the last six meetings.
Paxton was abysmal his last start, but will look to right the ship today against a team that hits lefties fairly well. The good thing for Paxton is that Despaigne pitches to contact and shouldn't fool anyone in the Yankees lineup. Look for Paxton to bounce back and get plenty of run support along the way.
