Tigers vs White Sox Prediction

The current betting odds have the White Sox listed as a big favorite in this game. The White Sox have been awful over the last week as they are in a big slump and losing a lot of their games over the last week. They are slipping away from a playoff spot and need to stop the bleeding, and they are getting a great chance to here with their ace on the mound. Cease has been great in his starts all season and has been pitching like one of the best starters in the AL this year. He always gives his team a chance to win when he is up and he will give them another great chance here against a bad team. The Tigers have been playing well lately, winning quite a few games over the last week, but they still have a terrible pitching staff and one of the worst offenses in the MLB. They have also been one of the worst road teams in the MLB this year and this will be a great bounce back spot for the White Sox here at home. The best way to place a bet here is on the White Sox to win this game on the runline.
