MLB Betting Trends

Cubs

The Cubs are 8-3 in their last 11 Sunday games. The Cubs are 23-9 in their last 32 interleague games.

White Sox

The over is 8-2 in the last 10 White Sox games on Sundays. The White Sox are 10-26 in their last 36 interleague games.

Prediction:

Both starting pitchers are in good form right now and on a getaway day, I think this is a game dominated by pitching to offset a lot of the offense the previous two days. Roll with the under here as the starters will do the bulk of the work, while the bullpen will finish the job.
