White Sox vs. Red Sox Runline Betting Odds & Prediction: August 4th 2017

Chicago White Sox vs. Boston Red Sox
MLB Betting Prediction: White Sox +1.5 +100 odds (August 4th 2017)

It’s going to take a lot for me to get involved with the White Sox during the rest of the baseball season. Gone from the White Sox are Jose Quintana, Tood Frazier, Melky Cabrera, closer David Robertson and three other key pieces of their bullpen.  What’s left are some promising talent and a lot of rubbish.  If I’m ever going to back the White Sox I need a monster plus price, 1 1/2 runs, a cold pitcher facing them and Carlos Rondon going for Chicago.  All of these things are in place for today’s game.  Rondon is coming around after being out for much of the season. The lefty looked very impressive in his last start this past Sunday against Cleveland. He held the Indians to one run in 6 2/3 innings. He has 20 strikeouts in his last two starts spanning 10 2/3 innings.

Boston has taken over first place in the AL East. It should be noted, though, the Red Sox have a losing record when facing southpaw starters. Boston also would be 5-10 in its last 15 games if laying 1 1/2 runs. The Red Sox are minus injured Dustin Pedroia, too.  Red Sox starter Eduardo Rodriguez hasn’t been the same since coming off the DL after knee trouble. Rodriguez has surrendered 18 earned runs in his last four starts allowing 27 hits, nine walks and seven homers in 20 1/3 innings.

(Editor’s note: Stephen Nover has his Baseball Total of the Year for the second half of the season going today. Stephen also is putting his 11-1 Canadian Football League record on the line today. Don’t miss these winning plays!)

White Sox vs. Athletics MLB Odds & Pick from ASA: July 3rd 2017

Chicago White Sox vs. Oakland Athletics
MLB Pick: A’s -122 odds (July 3rd 2017)

Oakland has lost five straight games but that was preceded by a 4-game winning streak that included a 3-game sweep of the White Sox at Chicago. That was a revenge series for the A’s and they’re not done seeking revenge either as they have lost 6 of their last 7 home games with the Pale Hose. Some payback is on order for Monday night and Jharel Cotton has been throwing well for the A’s. Oakland has won each of his last two starts and he has 14 strikeouts and has walked only 3 in his last 3 starts. Cotton has given up only 10 hits in the 12 and 1 / 3 innings over his last two home starts. The White Sox are starting Carlos Rodon who just made his first appearance of the season after spending three months on the disabled list. Although Rodon did not give up any earned runs, his command was “off” to say the least! The Pale Hose southpaw walked 6 in only 5 innings of work and Oakland drew 10 walks in yesterday’s tight loss to the Braves.

That patience at the plate should pay off big tonight as Rodon’s struggles to find the plate continue in this one. We also like the fact that we can lay a very small price here and fade a Chicago team that is only 17-27 in road games this season. Home fave line value available in this one and we’ll take it!
