The under is 4-0 in Tampa Bay’s last 4 games against a starter with a WHIP under 1.15 and the under is 6-1-2 in Tampa Bay’s last 9 road games against a right-handed starting pitcher. Chicago is 4-0 in their last 4 games and the over is 3-0-1 in Cease’s last 4 home starts against a team with a winning record. The over is 4-0 in these two teams last 4 head to head meetings.

Both of these teams have looked good to start the season, but Chicago has the home field advantage and the better pitcher on the mound. Both teams have been involved in some higher scoring games this season, but I like the White Sox pitching staff to shut down the Rays. Give me the White Sox here.
