I'm not running to the window to back either of these teams that have nothing to play for in the final series. However, we're not being asked to lay anything crazy and the Chicago White Sox are at home. Johnny Cueto is also easier to trust with the larger sample size, and he's actually been solid overall with his 3.39 ERA and 1.24 WHIP. Not a game for me to bet personally, but it's White Sox or pass for me.
