Boston Red Sox Recap

The Boston Red Sox come into this one looking to rebound from a frustrating 7-2 loss at the hands of the White Sox in Friday’s matchup, evening the series up at one win apiece. The loss for the Red Sox halted some momentum after earning a split with the Braves earlier in the week.

Red Sox Starting To Heat Up Offensively Despite Loss

Going into Friday’s matchup, Jarren Duran leads the Red Sox with 70 hits along with 11 stolen bases, 17 doubles, 9 triples and 64 strikeouts and also has 27 RBIs so far this season. Wilyer Abreu has 14 doubles and Ceddanne Rafaela also has a team-leading 37 RBIs while Rafael Devers has 56 hits with 12 doubles, 13 home runs, 32 RBIs and a .287 batting average this season.

Why the Boston Red Sox will win

  • The White Sox have lost each of their last eight day games against American League opponents.
  • The favorites have won each of the White Sox's last 15 games.
  • The favorites have covered the run line in each of the White Sox's last 10 games at Guaranteed Rate Field.
  • The White Sox have failed to cover the run line in each of their last nine games as underdogs against AL East opponents.
  • The White Sox have trailed after 3 innings in each of their last five games against American League opponents.
  • The Red Sox have led after 5 innings in each of their last five games as favorites.

Chicago White Sox Recap

The Chicago White Sox will try to build on Friday’s victory that snapped an ugly 14-game losing streak. The win was much needed after suffering sweeps and series losses against teams like the Cubs, Brewers, Blue Jays and Orioles over the last two weeks.

White Sox Still Trying To Drum Up Consistent Offense

Entering Friday, Gavin Sheets leads the White Sox with a .232 batting average and a .333 OBP along with a team-high 14 doubles and 22 RBIs while Andrew Vaughn also has 5 homers and 20 RBIs and Andrew Benintendi has 4 home runs and 18 RBIs with Vaughn logging 12 doubles as well as a team-high 45 hits. Paul DeJong also has a team-high 10 home runs and 21 RBIs with a team-high 66 strikeouts as well this season.

Why the Chicago White Sox will win

  • The White Sox have won four of their last five games as underdogs against the Red Sox following a win.
  • The Red Sox have lost three of their last four games as favorites following a road loss.
  • The White Sox have covered the run line in eight of their last nine home games following a win.
  • The Red Sox have failed to cover the run line in five of their last six day games against American League opponents that held a losing record.
  • The White Sox have led after 5 innings in four of their last six games as underdogs.

Boston Red Sox vs Chicago White Sox Prediction

I’m on the Red Sox here. The White Sox getting a win on Friday was nice, but in the end this is still a team with just 16 wins this season and Nastrini has been batting practice for opposing teams as he’s 0-5 in 5 starts and the White Sox have been crushed by multiple runs in each of the losses. Bello has had his ups and downs, but I think this is a great get right spot for him and I think he and the Red Sox lineup behind him, pick apart the White Sox here. Give me Boston -1.5.

Chris’s Pick Boston -1.5
