Bet on White Sox vs. Indians

This game has blowout written all over it. Cleveland is still playing for homefield advantage through the ALCS, holding a one-game lead over the Astros. Pelfrey is a mediocre pitcher and the Indians teed off on him earlier this month. Bauer has become a more consistent pitcher this season and the White Sox struggle against right-handed pitching. Take Cleveland on the runline.
