The White Sox are 1-4 in their last 5 Wednesday games and 11-4 in their last 15 road games vs. a team with a losing record. The Tigers are 1-5 in their last 6 during game 4 of a series and 5-13 in Verlanders last 18 starts. The Tigers are 16-5 in Verlanders last 21 starts vs. White Sox.
Not sure why Verlander continues to get big chalk when he's been a shell of himself this season. From a value point, the White Sox and the big plus money has to be the play.
