The White Sox are 0-4 in their last 4 games following an off day and 16-5 in Sales last 21 starts with 5 days of rest. The Twins are 5-2 in their last 7 during game 1 of a series and 3-7 in their last 10 games following an off day. The White Sox are 1-7 in the last 8 meetings in Minnesota and 2-8 in the last 10 meetings overall.
The Twins and the plus money looks very tasty, however, Sale is tough to fade, especially when the Sox have won five of his last six road starts. Give me Chicago on the road.
