Money Line: -175.00 Chi White Sox (Away)
It also helps Chicago that they have Dallas Keuchel on the bump here. Keuchel did not go long (5 ⅔ IP) nor did he have many K’s (only 1!). However, the White Sox did win his first start 10-3 (against Minnesota) as Keuchel allowed only two runs on three hits. Keuchel has good career numbers vs. the Royals and he’s got a streak of six consecutive quality starts against them. In the only meeting last season, he struck out 12 in 6 IP while giving up just two runs on three hits.
KC has played all seven of its games on the road and is 3-4. Tonight’s starter Kris Bubic will be making his big league debut. It’s a tough spot starting opposite someone like Keuchel and facing a lineup that had yesterday off. I just don’t think the Royals are very good and the road team should roll here. 10* Chi White Sox
