Over/Under Total Pick:
The Indians send spot starter Carlos Carrasco to the mound. He had a lukewarm start in his opener allowing 4 earned runs on 7 hits over 5.2 innings. Note that this was Carrasco’s 5th straight start that he failed to register a QS. The White Sox counter with lefty Chris Sale who has been razor sharp in his two starts this season pitching a combined 15.1 innings of 9 hit ball allowing a total of 3 runs. So an easy Chicago win? Not so fast. Some pitchers struggle against certain clubs and Cleveland is one of them Sale has been atrocious in starts versus the Indians with the White Sox losing his last 4. Here are some numbers to mull over. In 4 starts Sale pitched 23 innings allowing 34 hits and 22 runs! Take the Over 7.5 (-113).
