MLB Betting Trends

Chicago

The White Sox are 3-7 in their last 10 road games. Chicago is 1-6 in the last seven Lopez road starts.

Texas

The Rangers are 4-1 in their last five Friday games. Texas is 16-7 in its last 23 home games.

Prediction:

Texas has been playing great baseball at home and Lopez can't find any consistency despite having good stuff. Jurado is still coming into his own as an MLB pitcher, but he should get enough run support and help from the bullpen to carry the Rangers to the win here.
