3 units on Chicago -139 (moneyline) (risk 3 to return 3) RESULT: WIN
This moneyline might make sense last year, but it doesn't this year. Gavin Floyd is a likely All-Star candidate this season. He carries a 7-3 mark into this one with a nifty 3.10 ERA. Floyd has not only flirted with a no-hitter but has made 5 starts allowing 4 hits or less already. The White Sox have won 8 straight at home and 12 of 14 where they have been tough on opposing teams. For Colorado, and Jeff Francis, this season has been a complete reversal of fortunes. Francis won 17 games last year, but this year he has struggled the entire season with a 2-6 mark and the Rockies are just 4-9 in all of his starts, after posting a 22-12 mark in his starts last year. Rockies road woes, and Francis' struggles, puts the value on the Pale Hose here.
