The Chicago White Sox look for a win after winning five of their last eight games. The White Sox have scored 15 runs in their last three games and four or more runs in seven of their last 10 games. The White Sox have won four straight when scoring more than three runs. Jose Abreu leads Chicago with 151 hits and 83 RBI while Melky Cabrera and Adam Eaton have combined for 106 RBI. The Chicago White Sox have lost five of their last eight home games. Carlos Rodon takes the hill, and he’s 6-6 with a 4.10 ERA and 123 strikeouts this season. Rodon is 1-0 with a 1.80 ERA and 14 strikeouts in his career against the Indians.
The Indians are 4-1 in their last 5 vs. a team with a losing record and 4-1 in Carrascos last 5 starts. The White Sox are 5-1 in Rodons last 6 starts during game 2 of a series and 1-4 in Rodons last 5 starts with 5 days of rest. The under is 13-3 in the last 16 meetings in Chicago.
The Indians are one team that Rodon has done pretty well against this season in three outings. Carrasco has been hit or miss all season long. I'll take the home team and the plus money here.
