3 units on Chicago -116 (moneyline) (risk 3 to return 3) RESULT: WIN
We were on the Red Sox last night as they notched the win. We're flipping over to Chicago for game three in this four game series. Yesterday's loss was costly for Chicago as they lost Jose Contreras for the season. They also lost their lead in the division and we expect them to come out fighting today. Gavin Floyd is 11-6 with a 3.66 ERA. At home he's 7-2 with a 2.93 ERA, giving up just 4.5 hits per start! Boston throws Clay Buchholz, and his 7.68 road ERA and 0-5 record to the wolves here. With him on the mound, Boston is just 3-10 this season and 1-8 on the road the past two seasons. The White Sox average 5.7 runs per game at home this season and against Buchholz they will get their 5+. The Red Sox are just 2-11 this season on the road against a starter who gives up less than six hits per start this season. We feel blessed to get such a short line here, given this pitching matchup and we're jumping on it.
