Major League Baseball:

Chicago White Sox -135 vs. Kansas City Royals: Several factors immediately signal a hard look at the visiting White Sox. Starting pitching is an advantage with Buehrle on the mound. He has a solid 3.26 ERA, a 7-2 won-loss record and the team is 11-4 when he starts. The Royals’ Chen hasn’t shown much in limited usage, posting a lackluster 5.69 ERA. Also, the White Sox have enjoyed an on-base percentage in excess of .375 over the last five games, while the Royals are having trouble getting on base as their percentage is less than .300 over the last 10 games. With better pitching and a more prolific offense, the White Sox should take this contest – Chicago -135.
