White Sox -135 vs Rays (8½)
The White Sox are at the brink of elimination, down 2-0 in the best-of-5. But that’s nothing new for the ChiSox, who had to win three games in three days against three different teams at home just to make the ALDS. Chicago comes back with lefty John Danks, who was brilliant in a 1-0 victory over Minnesota in the one-game playoff last Monday that clinched the Central Division.
Tampa Bay continues to amaze, taking the first two games at home where they have been virtually a lock. Now on the road the nerves could kick in a bit for starter Matt Garza, who has had his ups and downs this season. Having survived so many pressure-packed games at home last week should help Chicago send this series to a Game 4. Besides, it’s good TV to have Ozzie Guillen around. WHITE SOX.
