Free MLB Picks and Odds: Chicago White Sox @ Boston Red Sox Favorite, Moneyline, Total and Predictions 5/30/11: After a grueling and horrendous weekend north of the border, the Chicago White Sox travel to bean town to enter into a three game set with the AL East leaders. Take away their opening night win on Thursday and the Chicago White Sox virtually did not show up for their four game series against the Toronto Blue Jays. After the conclusion of the series yesterday afternoon the pitching rotation gave up 27 earned runs and over 40 hits. The offense, aside from Saturdays outing, did not get anything going and there is great concern whether or not this line-up is capable of competing against the upper-echelon clubs in the American league. Possibly the only player that did show up for the weekend set was short-stop Alexei Ramirez who was solid at the plate and in the four spot on the field. Things do not get any better for the Sox after their latest series, they know are staring at three straight games against the mighty Red Sox before returning home for a huge series against the Detroit Tigers. Jake Peavy will get the ball tonight for the Sox and no one could be happier about that then manager Ozzie Guillen. Guilen has publicly ridiculed his entire pitching staff for the majority of the season thus far, but Peavy has given the 10 year bench boss nothing to call out. Peavy has rekindled his dominant game from years past and it is looking more and more like his injury woes are behind him.
What happened to the naysayers calling out the ineptness of the Boston Red Sox? After a tumultuous opening week of the season, the Red Sox arguably are the best club in baseball and lead the AL East by 1 whole game, an afterthought in mid-April. Their offense is lethal and they possess a complete and dominant pitching rotation. They are coming off of a dominant series in the motor city, a series that bolstered them into the first place seeding in the AL East. The main difference between now and the beginning of April is the rounding of the offense into consistent, productive outings. Only the first half of the batting order was producing in the early goings of the 2011 campaign and the struggles of free-agent acquisition Carl Crawford were well documented. Skip forward to today and the entire batting order has an average over .200 and an OBP over .250, strong indicators that the entire line-up is producing at a high level. This team has been picked to win the World Series this year and they are currently playing and are on pace to get there. It remains to be seen if the durability of this club will stay above par for the duration of the entire season, they have one of the older lineups across the board in the league.
Tonight, the complimentary selection will be the Chicago White Sox(Check latest lines at BetGuardian Sportsbook) on the road in the opening game of their three game set with the Boston Red Sox. It is well documented, and backed up with significant stats that the first game home after an extended road-trip is a difficult victory to pull out. The Red Sox are coming off of a very successful road trip but have had issues over the years coming home and winning the first game of a series. Jon Lester will get the start tonight and that does not bode well for the Red Sox chances against the fast-ball hitting White Sox. Lester does possess a full array of top notch pitches but he tends to overuse the fastball and teams are keying in on this trend. The Chicago White Sox are big, tough hitters and they are able to pound on fastball hurlers. Chi White Sox are 4-1 SU in their last 5 games when playing on the road against Boston and are 7-1 SU in their last 8 games when playing the Red Sox. We will consider the WHITE Sox reversing their latest bout with ineptness and picking up the win tonight on the efforts of the renewed arm of Jake Peavy. Cheers!
