The White Sox are 0-5 in their last 5 during game 2 of a series and 4-1 in Sales last 5 starts. The Rangers are 4-0 in their last 4 during game 2 of a series and 8-2 in Martinezs last 10 starts. The under is 22-10-1 in the last 33 meetings.
While Sale is the better pitcher and gives the Sox a great chance of picking up the W, all the value is on the red hot Rangers with the plus money. Texas is playing too well to fade with these odds.
