4 units on Chicago -101 (moneyline) (risk 4 to return 4) RESULT: WIN
The White Sox have not only won six in a row, but in their last 19 home games they have been a sizzling 17-2. The pitchers that took losses in this stretch are Dempster, Lee and Lackey - three likely All-Stars. The 19 games has shown the Sox outscore the opponent by a 139-68 margin, more than doubling them up. The offense has been as good as their is in baseball, as that run total equals 7.3 per game, very significant for a 19 game stretch. The Indians actually have a losing overall record with Sabathia on the mound and are just 2-4 in his road starts. These teams have traded places from a year ago, and the Sox get the call here.
