Chicago White Sox -1.5 (+100)
- *3 Star Play on White Sox -1.5*
Dylan Cease has become what the White Sox hoped and envisioned - a dominant starter. He is 11-4 with a 2.01 ERA, the third-lowest ERA in the majors. He also ranks third in the majors in strikeouts. The White Sox are 16-5 in his starts this season with the last five victories all coming by more than one run. Cease enters this month having been named the American League Pitcher of the Month in both June and July. He didn't give up more than one earned run in any of his outings during those past two months.
The White Sox should beat the Rangers by multiple runs with Cease going against righty Glenn Otto, who is 0-5 with a 7.11 ERA in his last seven starts. Otto has a 7.39 home ERA. The White Sox are 23-11 in their last 34 road games versus right-handed starters.
The White Sox have played better on the road going 28-23 while the Rangers have been worse at home going 22-29 at Globe Life Field.
Take Chicago -1.5.
