Sunday’s game will be game three of a four game series between the Chicago White Sox and the Kansas City Royals.
Technically, both teams still could make the post season as a Wild Card team, but the dream doesn’t seem as realistic for the South Siders at this point.
They will need to win as many games as possible and receive some help from other American League teams.
Kansas City Royals
The Royals started out 4 games back of the second American League Wild Card spot Saturday morning with both Seattle and Detroit at 78-69 and the New York Yankees and Houston Astros both at 77-70.
Kansas City has only won 3 of their last 10 games and have lost five in a row. Danny Duffy will take the hill for the Royals Sunday with a 3-1 record in his last seven starts.
He has pitched 47.1 innings during the stretch and has sent 41 batters back to the dugout on strikes with a 3.61 ERA throughout his last seven trips to the mound.
Chicago White Sox
The Chicago White Sox are more than a long shot for the postseason this year, but they are building momentum. They have won 7 of their last 10 and have scored 50 runs in the process.
It is pretty save to say that any loss against a team in Wild Card contention would knock the White Sox out of the picture, so it;s beyond do or die time for Chicago.
The Kansas City Royals have had Chicago’s number this year, beating the Sox 11 out of 16 games.
Jose Quintana has a 3-2 record during his last seven starts and will be on the mound for Chicago Sunday. He has a 3.40 ERA during that time with a 1.09 WHIP. Quintana has accumulated 43 strikeouts in his last 47.2 innings of work.
The lefty has yet to win against the Kansas City Royals in 2016, but that says more about the run support he has been given than his pitching.
MLB Baseball Betting Trends:
- The White Sox are 4-1 their last 5 against the American League Central.
- Chicago is 4-1 in their last 5 games against a teak with a winning record
- Kansas City is 0-7 throughout their last 7 home games against a team with a losing record.
- The Royals are 0-4 their last 4 games against a left handed starter.
Free Chicago White Sox vs. Kansas City Royals MLB Prediction:
On paper, the White Sox look like they have a good shot. Kansas City has been on a downward spiral the last two weeks and if they want to get things pointed back in the right direction, Sunday is going to be their chance.
4* Free MLB Betting Pick: Chicago ML and game total under 8.5
I have looked at stats and trends all day on this game and it could go either way. I look for Jose Quintana to have a strong outing while he is on the mound.
The bullpen has been an issue all season long for the Sox, I don’t think Kansas City is strong enough from the batter’s box right now to come back from behind and look for Chicago to come away with the win.
