Chicago is 4-1 in their last 5 games and 2-6 in their last 8 road games. The under is 4-1-2 in Chicago’s last 7 games. Boston is 22-9 in their last 31 Friday games and 3-8 in their last 11 games. The under is 10-4-1 in Boston’s last 15 games. The under is 9-4 in these two teams last 13 head to head meetings in Boston.

The White Sox come into this game well below where they thought they would be to start the season. Their offense has not been very good, but their pitching staff has a slight edge in this matchup. Eovaldi has been sharp to start the season, while Velasquez is coming off of an outing where he allowed 0 runs. I like the under in this matchup with these two pitchers on the mound.
