The Red Sox are 6-15 in their last 21 road games and 4-12 in their last 16 road games versus a team with a winning record. The under is 13-4-2 in Boston’s last 19 in game three of a series and 8-2 in their last 10 road games.
Meanwhile, the White Sox are 63-28 in their last 91 home games and 15-7 in their last 22 Sunday games. Chicago is 1-4 in their last five in game three of a series and the under is 10-3 in their last 13 in game three of a series.
PICK: I’m going to try Chicago in this Laundry Series finale. That said, Lynn is going to need a bounce-back start. He’s coming off seven earned on seven hits, two walks and three homers in 5.0 innings during his last game versus the Cubs. Prior to that however, Lynn had a good run going with two earned on eight hits in 11.0 innings. If the White Sox can get a quality start out of Lynn I think they’ll be in good shape.
