White Sox @ Cubs: Sundays Predictions, picks and bets


August 23, 2020 3:13 PM

The Cubs and White Sox meet again Sunday afternoon to close out their three-game series. 

The Sox dominated their cross-town rivals again on Saturday night, led by Jose Abreu who homered three times in the 7-4 win. That was the ChiSox seventh win in a row and has set themselves up to sweep the series at Wrigley on Sunday.

Can the Cubs stop the sweep at home? Can the Sox notch up eight in a row? How many for Abreu in this one? We’ve crunched the numbers and have come up with our best picks and bets for a big day of crosstown rival baseball!

Dimers' Suggested Plays
🔥 BEST: White Sox +1.5 (-121*)
💵 Moneyline: White Sox (+155*)
👇Total runs: Under 10.5 (-105*)


White Sox +1.5 (-121*) has a 58% probability

Two wins from two for the White Sox in the series and our model likes them to sweep the series today. Taking them at the run line is the safest bet today.


White Sox (+155*) has a 4% edge over the sportsbooks

The White Sox have well and truly planted their flag down in Chicago this weekend as the current premier team in the city. After yesterday's win that's now seven in a row. We tip the Sox to keep it rolling on Sunday.



Total Runs
Under 10.5 runs (+120*) has a 58% probability

This series so far has had lots of runs, but we are expecting a much lower scoring game today.

In his last start as pitcher, Cubs pitcher Yu Darvish went close to pitching a no-hitter. That kind of form can't be ignored. We'll happily take the under here.

Dimers' take-out

Lots to play for today as the weekend series rolls on. We see the Cubs beating the Sox streak, but only just.
