Chicago is 4-1 in their last five interleague games against a team with a winning record, 1-5 following a loss, and 7-16 in Danks’ last 23 starts as an underdog. San Francisco is 6-2 in their last eight road games, 1-6 in their last seven games, and 2-6 in Cain’s last eight road starts.
The White Sox are a home dog here and I look for them to get the win in that role in this spot.
