White Sox vs Yankees Odds - White Sox will fail crucial test in the Bronx

Posted by Dale "Skip" Lalonde on 4/24/2012 9:27:02 AM
MLB betting linesThe White Sox vs Yankees odds are a crucial test for the White Sox. Four games behind the Tigers for the American League Central lead and slipping fast, they need to make an MLB betting statement that says “we deserve to make the playoffs.” What better way to do that than to beat the Yankees in the Bronx?

White Sox vs Yankees Odds: White Sox hurlers should get rocked in high-scoring series

  • Yankees are Mark Buehrle’s kryptonite
  • Thanks to Mitre’s struggles, whoever starts for Chicago on Saturday will win
  • If nothing else, bet over the total when Garcia and Chamberlain meet on Sunday

Friday, August 28, 7:05 p.m. ET
White Sox vs Yankees odds: Mark Buehrle (11-7, 3.92) vs C.C. Sabathia (15-7, 3.59)

Maybe perfect games aren’t the best thing for Mark Buehrle? He’s 0-3 with a 6.03 this month, sputtering just when the White Sox need him most. Unfortunately for anyone betting on Chicago, the struggles may continue on Friday night. Buehrle is 1-6 with a 6.84 ERA lifetime against the Bronx Bombers. The Yanks’ powerful right-handed bats (A-Rod, Jeter, Teixeira and Posada if you count switch hitters) should give him fits.

C.C. Sabathia is 5-2 at home this season, 5-0 this month and 15-4 in 27 career starts against the White Sox. Do you need any more reasons to pick New York?

White Sox vs Yankees odds: TBD vs Sergio Mitre (2-1, 6.82)

For some reason, the White Sox haven’t named a starter for tomorrow. Lucky you, Sergio Mitre; you get all the attention. What can we say about Mitre? He’s failing miserably as a starter, letting opponents bat .368 off him, and the White Sox crushed him for five runs and seven hits over three innings on July 31. Pick Chicago.

Sunday, August 30, 1:05 p.m. ET
White Sox vs Yankees odds: Freddy Garcia (0-1, 6.75) vs Joba Chamberlain (8-4, 4.34)

Think of Sunday as Enigma Day. The enigmatic Freddy Garcia, who has shown decent control but allowed quite a few runs in limited duty, faces the equally enigmatic Joba Chamberlain, who can’t hit the broad side of a barn lately. Who will do less damage in this sportsbook matchup?

Since Garcia is so far removed from relevancy that his splits don’t mean much, we’re better off judging our pick on Joba’s history versus the White Sox. He’s only pitched five career innings against them (as a reliever), but he has a 1.80 ERA in that span. Your best play is to bet over the total – way over! – and hope that the Yankee bats outslug the Sox bats.

MLB betting breakdown: Outlook and Pick

The White Sox are on the ropes; the matchups don’t favor their staff this weekend and the Yanks will run up the score in two of three games. Hopefully you have plenty of New York and Chicago hitters on your fantasy team, as we should expect barn burners all weekend.
