It is hard to believe that the White Sox are listed as a home dog in this game after winning two of the first three here, and as one of the hottest home teams in baseball. The Pale Hose have gone on a 27-9 run in their last 36 at home and have been playing superb. This line is mostly due to the reputation of Josh Beckett from a year ago, but his performance this season has not been the same as the Red Sox are just 11-10 in his 21 starts to date. John Danks has out-pitched him by nearly a run a game, and the White Sox are dogs at home? The White Sox have also been 5-2 in the role of a home dog on the season. The Red Sox have had road woes all season and when they have been on the road facing a .500+ team, their woes have gotten even worse as they have logged an unforgivable 7-21 mark. There is lots of value on the White Sox here, and they get the call.
