If you have seen the following trend before, it is because we have been cashing with it for some time now. The White Sox are 15-0 as favorites off a win as favorites in which they never trailed. Chicago is 13-0 in this spot THIS season. Pittsburgh is 0-11 with Joe Musgrove when he threw fewer than 100 pitches in his last start. The Pirates have lost by an average of 5.09 runs per game and they are 0-3 in this spot this season, with every loss by multiple runs. I make the White Sox the play.

White Sox are playing excellent baseball right now. They have won four straight and 16 of 20 overall. Pittsburgh is 13-26 and Joe Musgrove is 0-4 with a 6.62 ERA. Chicago swept a two-game series vs. the Pirates last month, outscoring them 14-3 in the process. Dylan Cease is 5-2 with a 3.29 ERA. The White Sox have won their last six series openers. Pittsburgh is 1-11 in its last 12 matchups vs the A.L. Central.

The Chicago White Sox have been one of the best teams in baseball over the past three weeks, winning 16 of their last 20 games, including a 5-2 record on their current road trip. The White Sox have one of the best offenses and pitching staffs in baseball, while the Pirates have one of the worst offenses in the league. The pitching matchup favors the White Sox, as well. Dylan Cease has been excellent this season, winning five of his seven decisions. He has given up more than two runs in just one of his eight starts this season, while Joe Musgrove has been pretty awful for the Pirates. This is a mismatch of epic proportions and the White Sox will win in big fashion tonight.
