White Sox rolling
The White Sox are actually playing quite well right now. They are coming off three straight wins over the Tigers in Detroit and have won seven of their last 10. Chicago is 51-79 overall and 26-39 on the road. The Sox are putting up 4.18 runs per game on offense while allowing 5.26 per contest.
Carlos Rodon gets the start for the White Sox this evening. He is making his 14th start of the year and has a 5-3 record with a 2.71 ERA and a 1.02 WHIP. Rodon has 69 strikeouts with 32 walks over 86.1 innings of work.
Yankees sweep Orioles
The New York Yankees are coming off a four-game sweep at Baltimore and they have won eight of their last nine games. New York is now 83-47 overall and 45-20 at home. The Yankees are scoring 5.22 runs per game on offense while allowing 4.01 per contest.
Masahiro Tanaka will take the mound for the Yankees on Monday night. He is 9-4 through 21 starts this year and has a 3.90 ERA and a 1.11 WHIP. Tanaka has 121 strikeouts and 30 walks over 120.0 innings.
MLB Betting Trends
The White Sox are 6-1 in their last seven road games but just 13-28 in their last 41 series openers.
The Yankees are 22-5 in their last 27 against AL Central teams and 64-23 in their last 87 home games.
Rodon has been pretty solid over his last couple of weeks. He has allowed just five earned runs over his last 28 innings on the mound and hasn’t allowed more than two runs in seven of his last eight outings. However, he faces a loaded New York lineup today. While I think the White Sox hitters can get to Tanaka a little bit, I don’t think Chicago can winning a high-scoring game tonight. They just don’t have the hitters and bullpen to keep pace with New York.
The Pick: New York Yankees -220
