The Cubs and White Sox meet tonight for the second battle in their three-game series, and tonight it will be the Cubbies trying to restore pride after last night’s total obliteration.

The Sox whacked six home runs on their way to a 10-1 demolition job of the Boys in Blue in the weekend series opener to shock a few observers. Another win tonight would give them their seventh in a row.

Can the Cubs arrest the slide? Can the Sox keep it rolling? We’ve crunched the numbers and have come up with our best picks and bets for a big day of crosstown rival baseball!

BEST
White Sox +1.5 (-110*) has a 59% probability

Our data analysis sees the Cubs getting back into the series today and winning, but only by the slightest of margins. The White Sox were undoubtedly impressive in their rout of the Cubbies yesterday and it would take a brave person to discount that type of form today. Take the White Sox at the run line.

 

Moneyline
Cubs (-105*) has a 58% probability

The Cubs get back into this one today to make the series-ending game on Sunday interesting. Kyle Hendricks gets the nod as starting pitcher for the Cubbies today who has had a nice start to the season. Look for him to try and restrict the White Sox offense that was so prolific yesterday. Cubs at the moneyline.

Total Runs
Over 10.5 runs (+120*) has a 3.9% edge against the books

The Over covered in this one yesterday and our model predicts another high scoring game again today.

It’s an extremely small sample size, but White Sox starting pitcher, Reynaldo Lopez, has had a horror season record so far, conceding three hits and one home run in less than one inning pitched. If that kind of form line continues tonight, it could get ugly for the Sox, but great for us Over bettors!
