White Sox vs Red Sox Odds - Home dominance will help Boston crush Chicago's playoff hopes

MLB bettingWhite Sox vs Red Sox odds don’t simply just amuse us because they treat us to an “All-Sox” series; they feature two teams fighting to stay in the American League Wildcard hunt. Can Chicago pull off any road upsets during this four-game MLB betting set?

White Sox vs Red Sox odds: Boston starters love pitching at Fenway Park

  • Young Clay Buchholz dominant at Fenway; old Jose Contreras gets dominated at Fenway
  • Lester should outduel unpredictable Freddy Garcia
  • Floyd, Tazawa could pitch gems for their respective teams

Tonight, 7:10 p.m. ET
Jose Contreras (5-11, 5.13) vs Clay Buchholz (2-3, 3.99)

Is it possible that Clay Buchholz belongs in the big leagues for good? He’s allowed two or fewer runs in four of his last five starts, including his last three outings against the Yankees, Tigers and Blue Jays. If he can keep shrinking his too-high walk rate, he’ll be a valuable contributor to Boston’s sportsbook hopes down the stretch. While the White Sox did bomb him in his only career start against them, he hasn’t faced them yet this year and he’s dynamite at Fenway Park, sporting a 2.83 lifetime ERA.

Few teams destroy Jose Contreras like the Red Sox. In six career starts at Fenway Park, he has a 10.26 ERA. He simply can’t beat them. So why trust his White Sox vs Red Sox odds?

MLB betting pick: Red Sox

Tuesday, August 25, 7:10 p.m. ET
Freddy Garcia (0-1, 10.38) vs Jon Lester (10-7, 3.58)

Strikeout machine Jon Lester has a difficult matchup against the White Sox, but it’s tough to bet against his White Sox vs Red Sox odds, as he’s 21-5 at Fenway Park in his career. Freddy Garcia is a total wild card; you could take chance on him and Chicago if you’re feeling lucky, but I wouldn’t recommend it.

MLB betting pick: Red Sox

Wednesday, August 26, 7:10 p.m. ET
Gavin Floyd (10-8, 3.98) vs Tim Wakefield (11-3, 4.31)

How about that Gavin Floyd? Sporting a 2.92 ERA and 49 strikeouts in 49.1 innings since All-Star break, he’s a huge reason why Chicago is still alive in the AL West. He and the White Sox should be underdogs Wednesday, but you should take a betting flier on them. Floyd has never lost to the Red Sox and Tim Wakefield should be rusty making his first start since early July after a DL stint. Go with Chicago’s White Sox vs Red Sox odds.

MLB betting pick: White Sox

Thursday, August 27, 7:10 p.m. ET
John Danks (11-8, 3.85) vs Junichi Tazawa (2-2, 3.57)

Junichi Tazawa’s White Sox vs Red Sox odds are tough to pin down since we know so little about him, but we can at least say he looks dominant at home so far this season – 2-0 with a 0.82 ERA. John Danks hasn’t faced the Red Sox much in his career and he’s hot, having allowed two or fewer runs in three straight starts, but the lefty could have trouble with powerful righty bats like Jason Bay, Kevin Youkilis and Victor Martinez. Go with the Red Sox and also consider betting under the total.

MLB betting pick: Red Sox
