Chicago is 7-1 in their last 8 road games and 2-7 in their last 9 game 4’s of a series. The over is 3-1-1 in Chicago’s last 5 Wednesday games. Kansas City is 8-18 in their last 26 games and 2-9 in their last 11 game 4’s of a series. The over is 6-1 in Kansas City’s last 7 Wednesday games. The under is 19-6-1 in these two teams last 26 head to head meetings.

This should be a pretty good pitching matchup between Greinke and Giolito in this matchup. Greinke had been solid before giving up 5 earned runs over 4.2 innings pitched in his last start. Giolito has been very good in his last few starts and has been slightly better than Greinke this year. I give the edge to the White Sox in this game and like them to win by 1.5.
