MLB Betting Pick & Prediction: Chicago White Sox vs. Boston Red Sox
September 24, 2023
The Chicago White Sox have been eliminated from playoff contention in the American League which means Chicago will miss the playoffs for the 2
consecutive season while finishing with a losing record for the 1
time since the 2019 MLB season. Boston still had hopes of making the playoffs entering September, but after a losing month, the Red Sox will also not be making the playoffs this year. The Teams have split the first two games of the series with the White Sox winning game two on Saturday night by a score of 1-0. Which team will come away with the series win by winning game three on Sunday? Let’s take a closer look at how these teams are faring this season.
Chicago enters this game with a record of 59-96 which puts them 23 games behind the Minnesota Twins for 1
place in the AL Central and 26 games behind the Houston Astros for the final Wild Card spot in the American League. The White Sox have compiled a record of 6-15 in September but ended their three-game losing streak with a 1-0 win on Saturday against the Boston Red Sox. The lone run came in the 9
inning when Luis Robert hit a one-run home run.
The Boston Red Sox were still in the playoff mix in the American League at the beginning of September, but after compiling a record of 7-14 in September the Red Sox have been eliminated from playoff contention. Boston lost game two of the series against the White Sox by a score of 0-1 which was also the 8
shutout loss for the Red Sox this season.
BookMaker has the Boston Red Sox listed as -150 money line favorites at home against the Chicago White Sox for game three of the series on Sunday afternoon. Chicago has won six of the last ten and two of the last three matchups while winning by an average margin of 1 run per game over the last three games in the series.
Chicago will have the advantage at pitcher on Sunday as the White Sox will send Mike Clevinger to the mound while the Red Sox will send Kutter Crawford to the mound for game three of the series. Clevinger is 8-8 this season with a 3.42 ERA while recording 108 strikeouts while Crawford is 6-7 on the year with an ERA of 4.19 and has recorded 121 strikeouts.
Mike Clevinger is 2-1 in his last three starts this season while allowing a total of three runs and recording 21 strikeouts in those matchups with his last start coming on the road against the Washington Nationals in which Clevinger allowed one run while recording seven strikeouts in a win.
Kutter Crawford’s last three starts this season have resulted in three no-decisions while allowing a total of eight runs and recording 17 strikeouts in those starts with his last start coming on the road against the Texas Rangers in which Crawford allowed two runs and struck out seven batters in a no-decision.
Boston enters this game with a better record, however, Chicago has been the better team in the series, winning six of the last ten and two of the last three games. The White Sox have won by an average margin of 1 run per game over the last three games in the series. Chicago will also have the advantage at pitcher for game three of the series on Sunday which is why I am taking the money line for the Chicago White Sox at +130 on the road against the Boston Red Sox for game three of the series on BookMaker.
