The Chicago White Sox (29-29) and Los Angeles Dodgers (30-28) will open up a interleague series Monday night at Dodger Stadium, with the first pitch scheduled for 10:10 p.m. ET
Chicago White Sox vs. Los Angeles Dodgers
Chicago has won four of its last six games, including a 4-1 victory over the San Diego Padres as -175 home favorites Sunday, while going UNDER the betting total for a sixth consecutive contest. The White Sox are ready to welcome back first baseman Jose Abreu after a stint on the 15-day disabled list, as he looks to add onto his total of 15 home runs. Chicago is 4-3 as a road underdog of +175 to +200, with the OVER going 5-2 in that situation.
White Sox starting pitcher Jose Quintana (3-4, 3.61 ERA) registered a 6-2 home victory over the Cleveland Indians in his last effort—surrendering two runs and five hits over six frames. The left-hander is 2-3 with a 3.86 ERA in six road games, with opposing hitters batting .264 against him. Quintana is 3-2 with a 2.29 ERA in nine career interleague starts—receiving less than three runs of support in all but one.
Los Angeles has dropped four of its last five affairs, including a 5-3 defeat to the Pittsburgh Pirates as -181 home favorites on ESPN’s Sunday Night Baseball, while going OVER the betting total for the third time in four opportunities. The Dodgers have a Cuban star of their own, with outfielder Yasiel Puig hitting .426 with nine extra-base hits over the last 13 games. Los Angeles is 6-7 versus left-handed starters, with the UNDER going 7-4-2 in that situation.
Dodgers starting pitcher Clayton Kershaw (3-2, 3.57 ERA) suffered a 3-2 setback at home to the Cincinnati Reds last time out, as he allowed three runs and seven hits over seven innings of work. The left-hander has gone 0-1 with a 3.86 ERA in two home games—issuing a single walk and striking out 18 batters in 14 combined frames. Kershaw has compiled a 0-1 record and 5.40 ERA in two previous meetings with the White Sox.
Sports bettors will likely back the Dodgers due to their 15-5 record in their last 20 Monday affairs.
