Free MLB Pick
The Red Sox had lost 6 straight games with Wade Miley getting the start before winning their last 2 where he has only given up a combined 3 earned runs in 14 innings of work. However, in his last 5 road starts Boston only has 1 win and that came in the beginning of July. The White Sox had lost 3 straight games with Jose Quintana on the hill before winning their last one when he went 6 innings and gave up 2 earned runs in a 8-2 win over the L.A. Angels. The White Sox are 0-4 in Quintana’s last 4 home starts.
Tough call in this one, as both pitchers are coming off good outings, but going with the Red Sox again, as they have good road underdog value facing a Chicago team that has lost 2 in a row.
