MLB Betting Trends
The Cubs are 8-3 in their last 11 Sunday games. The Cubs are 23-9 in their last 32 interleague games.
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.
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.
MLB DAILY PREDICTION: CUBS/WHITE SOX UNDER 8.5
