Chicago White Sox vs. Texas Rangers Preview

The White Sox have won 3 straight, but are only 4-6 in their last 10 games and the Rangers are coming off a win and are 5-5 in their last 10 games. MLB lines have the Rangers as the home favorite with a total of 9 runs.

In their last games the Rangers beat the Red Sox 5-3 and the White Sox beat the Twins 8-2.

This season the Rangers have an O/U record of 45-49 with a run-line W/L record of 55-43 and the White Sox have an O/U record of 41-53 with a run-line W/L record of 47-50.

On the season the Rangers are an AL best 31-17 at home and the White Sox are 26-23 on the road.

Chris Sale (11-3, 2.37 ERA) goes for the White Sox tonight and in his last outing he gave up 5 earned runs in 7 innings in a loss to the Tigers. Yu Darvish (11-6, 3.88 ERA) goes for the Rangers and in his last outing he gave up 2 earned runs in 7 innings in a win over the Angels.

Before losing his last start Sale had won 8 starts in his previous 10 with an ERA of 1.61. His only career start facing the Rangers was earlier this month when he only gave up 5 hits in a White Sox win. 


White the White Sox are riding a 3-game winning streak they have dropped 5 straight on the road and in that span are only batting .195 as a team.

Darvish will be making his first career start facing the White Sox and he has his work cut out for him facing a Chicago offense that ranks 6th in the Majors in runs scored and 6th in HR.

Darvish ranks 3rd in the Majors in strikeouts per 9 innings (10.24).

The White Sox have won 4 of their last 5 games facing the Rangers.

In some betting trends for this AL match up the White Sox are 0-4 in their last 4 games as an underdog, 8-3 in Sale’s last 11 starts, and they have an Under record of 3-0-2 in their last 5 road games.

The Rangers are 2-6 in their last 8 vs. a team with a winning record, 7-1 in Darvish’s last 8 home starts, and they have an Under record of 9-0 in their last 9 home games.

Jason’s Pick: I think Darvish will have another solid start and he will lead the Rangers to a win in a pitcher’s duel tonight.
