MLB Betting Trends

Chicago

The White Sox are 4-2 in their last road games. Chicago is 4-1 in its last five Nova road starts.

Texas

The Rangers are 2-5 in the last seven Sampson starts. Texas is 11-4 in the last 15 home games versus a team with a losing record. 

Prediction:

Both starting pitchers have struggled much of the season, but Sampson has at least shown flashes of excellence. Nova is very hittable and the Rangers have been strong at home all season. I'm definitely siding with the hosts here.
