MLB Betting Trends

Chicago

The White Sox are just 6-20 in their last 26 interleague road games and 3-9 in their last 12 following a loss.

Cincinnati

The Reds have won 10 of their last 12 at home and six straight against AL Central opponents. They also have won 12 of their last 15 overall.

Prediction:

The White Sox aren’t a team that can win on the road consistently. The Reds are rolling right now and I just like the momentum they have at home against a poor Chicago team. The Sox have struggled in interleague play and on the road. Go with the Reds to pick up enough runs on Giolito to get the win.

 

The Pick: Cincinnati Reds -185
