Chicago White Sox vs Arizona Diamondbacks Prediction

Those who have followed along this year know I've been blindly fading the Chicago White Sox. The White Sox are the worst team in baseball, and they've been the worst team for MLB bettors. No team has lost bettors more money than the White Sox this season. With that said, the Arizona Diamondbacks continue to play underwhelming ball, lost to the White Sox yesterday and are throwing out Jordan Montgomery, who has been downright dreadful this season. I'm not laying this steep price with Montgomery on the hill. Drew Thorpe is making just his second start, but we're getting 1.5 times our money with him. This will be one of the rare times I'm siding with the White Sox, but it's a fade of the Diamondbacks at this price more than anything.
