Game Odds:

Team Moneyline Total Run Line
BAL (29-18) -240 o8.5 (-110) -2.5 (+110)
CHW (15-34) +200 u8.5 (-110) +2.5 (-130)

Prediction:

In this matchup, we predict that the game will go under the total of 8.5 runs. Here's why:

The Baltimore Orioles have struggled offensively in their recent games, scoring only 1, 3, and 3 runs in their last three losses. Grayson Rodriguez has been a steady presence on the mound, which should limit the run production of the White Sox.

On the other side, Mike Clevinger's high ERA is a concern, but the Orioles' recent offensive woes might allow him to have a better outing than usual. Additionally, the White Sox have not been prolific scorers, with a team batting average of .217 and only 141 runs scored this season.

Given the Orioles' recent offensive struggles and Rodriguez's strong pitching, along with the White Sox's own scoring issues, this game is likely to stay under the 8.5 run total.

Pick: Under 8.5 runs (-110)
