The Chicago White Sox could use a win after losing seven of their last 10 games. The White Sox have allowed 14 runs in this series and four or more runs in seven of their last 10 games. The Chicago White Sox have lost 10 of their last 13 games when allowing at least three runs. Offensively, Jose Abreu leads the White Sox with 158 hits and 83 RBI while Avisail Garcia and Tim Anderson have combined for 261 hits and 112 RBI. Reynaldo Lopez gets the ball, and he is 0-2 with a 6.06 ERA and 19 strikeouts this season. This will be Lopez’s first career game against the Indians.
The Indians are 16-5 in their last 21 road games, 11-4 in Carrascos last 15 road starts and 35-17 in Carrascos last 52 starts. The White Sox are 18-40 in their last 58 during game 3 of a series, 0-4 in their last 4 vs. American League Central and 17-37 in their last 54 overall. The Indians are 5-2 in the last 7 meetings in Chicago, 4-1 in the last 5 meetings and the under is 9-4-1 in the last 14 meetings.
As I've mentioned before, there's simply no reason to bet against the Indians until they give us a reason to bet against them. We're talking about the longest winning streak of the season and a team that's firing on all cylinders at the moment. Not to mention Carrasco has allowed one or less runs in four of his last five starts. The price is insane, so I'd suggest taking the RL to provide value to the wager, but the Indians have to be the pick given their form.
