ROGERS’ FAN APPRECIATION BEATDOWN (ONLY $25!)
Kansas City vs. Chi White Sox,
09/11/2019 20:10 EDT,
Score: 8 - 6
Money Line: -165 Chi White Sox
The set-up: Reynaldo Lopez gets the call for the home side and he’ll be opposed by Glen Sparkman. The White Sox rallied for a win over the Royals last night and I think it’ll find a way to get the job done here as well.
The pitchers: Sparkman (3-11, 5.97 ERA) has struggled mightily over the last two months, going 0-6 with an 8.32 ERA over his last nine trips to the hill. Overall Sparkman has given up 27 home runs this season.
Lopez (9-12, 5.17) is 2-1 with a 4.57 ERA in four starts vs. the Royals this year (is 4-2 with a 4.71 ERA lifetime vs. them.)
The pick: Take it for what you will as well, but KC is is just 9-17 as a road dog in the +100 to +150 range, while Chicago is 9-2 as a home favorite in the -125 to -175 range. Lay the reasonable mid sized price.
8* BEATDOWN on the Chicago White Sox.
