The Chicago White Sox and the Los Angeles Dodgers square off Tuesday in MLB action from Guaranteed Rate Field. We will look at this from a betting perspective and determine the best bets for this game. Here’s a Chicago White Sox vs LA Dodgers Prediction.

Starting Pitching Matchup

The Los Angeles Dodgers will send out Bobby Miller for the start here and Miller is 1-1 with a 6.00 ERA and 20 strikeouts this season. This will be Miller’s first career start against the White Sox. Chris Flexen will start for the White Sox here and is 2-6 with a 5.03 ERA and 57 strikeouts this season. This will be Flexen’s second career start against the Dodgers.

Los Angeles Dodgers Recap

The Los Angeles Dodgers come into this one looking to build on their 3-0 win over the White Sox to start the series on Monday. The win helped the Dodgers get off to the right foot in this series after splitting with the Angels over the weekend following series wins over the Rockies and Royals over the last week and a half.

Dodgers Loaded Offensively

Shohei Ohtani has 97 hits including a team-high 23 home runs, 21 doubles and 58 RBIs with a .318 batting average while Mookie Betts has 86 hits with 16 doubles, 3 triples, 10 homers and 40 RBIs of his own, but will miss the next few weeks because of an injury. Teoscar Hernandez also has 18 home runs with 54 RBIs and a team-high 95 strikeouts. Betts also has 9 stolen bases while Ohtani has a team-high 16 stolen bases. Freddie Freeman also has 46 RBIs with 21 doubles and Will Smith has added 16 doubles, 11 home runs and 46 RBIs.

Why the Los Angeles Dodgers will win

  • The White Sox have lost each of their last nine games against National League opponents that held a winning record.
  • The Dodgers have won seven of their last eight night games against AL Central opponents following a road win.
  • The White Sox have failed to cover the run line in 13 of their last 14 games as home underdogs after playing the previous day.
  • The favorites have covered the run line in 14 of the White Sox’s last 16 games at Guaranteed Rate Field.

Chicago White Sox Recap

The Chicago White Sox will look to rebound after starting their series on a low note with their defeat in Monday’s opening matchup. The loss put the White Sox behind the 8-ball once again as the White Sox are trying to snap a series losing streak which includes series losses to the Tigers, Astros and Diamondbacks over the last two weeks.

White Sox Continue To Have Issues Offensively

Gavin Sheets has a .236 batting average and a .333 OBP along with a team-high 15 doubles and 28 RBIs while Andrew Vaughn also has 9 homers and 35 RBIs and Andrew Benintendi has 5 home runs and 20 RBIs with Vaughn logging 13 doubles as well as a team-high 67 hits. Paul DeJong also has a team-high 14 home runs and 30 RBIs with a team-high 84 strikeouts as well this season.

Why the Chicago White Sox will win

  • The Dodgers have lost four of their last five games as favorites against American League opponents following a win.
  • The White Sox have covered the run line in six of their last seven night games following a loss.
  • The Dodgers have failed to cover the run line in five of their last six games as favorites following a road win.

Chicago White Sox vs LA Dodgers Prediction

I’m on the Dodgers here. I get that it’s not necessarily the most ideal spot to be backing the Dodgers at this price, but truth be told I think the White Sox best chance for a win in this series was with Garrett Crochet pitching on Monday and last I checked, it’s hard to win baseball games when you don’t score. Bobby Miller had a rough time in his return, but coming off of the IL for a start at Coors isn’t easy and I expect him to have a better outing against a White Sox team with a non-existent offense. Give me the Dodgers.
