Division leaders will face-off verse each other when the White Sox host the Rangers on Tuesday. All odds and trends for this game can be found at Bovada sportsbook.
The White Sox are on top of the AL Central and are 6-4 in the last 10 games. They are just 19 – 21 at home this season which is definitely puzzling for a team that leads their division. They will send sensation Chris Sale to the mound tonight Sale has won his last six decisions and has been named to the AL All-Star team. Sale has struck out 94 batters and 95 innings good enough for a 2.27 ERA.
The Rangers have the best record in baseball and have been absolutely rolling as they look for their third straight World Series appearance this season. They are 23 – 15 on the road this season and have a five game lead out in the AL West. They will send Roy Oswalt to the mound tonight who has won his first two starts this season. In just 12 innings of work he has struck out 12.
Chicago is 4-1 in their last five games as a favorite, 5-2 in their last seven games against a right handed starter, and 6-2 in Sale’s last eight starts. Texas is 4-0 in their last four road games, 7-2 in their last nine games against a left handed starter, and 3-8 in their last 11 games as a road underdog.
Both of these teams have sluggers from top to bottom, but we like both pitchers in this game. Will take the under for total runs scored at the sportsbook.
