Kansas City at Chicago

2 units on Kansas City +174 (moneyline) (risk 2 to return 2)  RESULT: LOSS

The White Sox have limped into the dog days of August, and have watched their lead in the AL Central reduced to the slimmest of margins - just a half game ahead of the surging Twins. That margin has been reduced due to a lackluster 13-15 stretch the Sox have posted over the last month or so. Throw in a Mark Buehrle that has struggled all season, just 11-12 in his starts with the White Sox, and a recent 7.16 ERA over his last three starts and you have a recipe for an upset. Throw into that mix the fact that the Royals have feasted on LHP to the tune of a 22-16 mark against a woeful 32-48 mark against RHP, and the dog has some life in this contest as well as value. With all that to offer, and in this hefty price range, the dog has its day in Chicago. The Royals get the call.
