Tampa Bay Rays vs. Chicago White Sox Prediction

1u - Chicago White Sox Over 1.5 Team Total First 5 Innings (-130) (Bet $130 to Win $100)

*Odds Available at DraftKings at Time of Publishing*

The White Sox are a team we only back against left-handed pitching and for good reason. On the season they bat .261 against lefties which is great but only .230 against righties which is average. On the mound for Tampa Bay, today is Ryan Yarbrough who is a lefty of course. Ryan has been better than his ERA would indicate but we’re not asking for the White Sox to do anything too incredible, just 2 quick runs. In just last game against a Rangers team that hits .238 against lefties, we saw Yarbrough allow 3 runs in the fourth inning so this isn’t out of question at all.

At some point, the White Sox are due for an offensive explosion despite the injuries. Today's lineup is just 6-24 against Yarbrough but does have 4 RBIs against him. I'm assuming he faces about 20 batters in the first five innings so we’re asking for half that number. The last time Yarbrough played against the White Sox was last year in June and he allowed 7 runs, we need less than 30% of that today, not too crazy to ask. The White Sox keep scoring 3 runs in a game and despite the total of 7, this feels like a game that they can score 4-5 and Giolito pitches a gem.

This game has an early start so I won’t talk your ear off too much but trusting the White Sox against lefties has been a trend that has made us lots of money. Even last night, their comeback against this same Rays team was against two lefties in the bullpen. Both Brooks Raley and Jalen Beeks are southpaws and allowed runs to choke the game. A .261 average against that style of pitcher is no joke and should spark having runners in scoring position to give us opportunities to cash here. Let's not overthink and just place this bet and keep it rolling!
