Boston/Chicago: unmatched Sox!
(MLB) Boston vs. Chi White Sox, 09/12/2021 2:10 PM, Score: 1 - 2
Total: 9.00 | -105.00 Under
Result: Win
Red Sox (Pivetta, 9-7, 4.67) vs White Sox (Lynn, 10-4, 2.59)

With a good lead in the AL Central, the White Sox are comfortable, but for Boston it is red alert in their hunt for a wild card spot in the very competitive AL East.

Both starters have missed a start; Pivetta with Covid issues, and Lynn with a long-standing knee inflammation. Pivetta has struggled in August at 1-3, and 5.27 ERA. Lynn is coming off his worst start, allowing 7 runs over 5 innings. It will be interesting to see how these two starters respond.

Both of these teams can hit. Boston in particular has been potent lately. Both teams are very strong against righties. Pivetta has given up 4 runs in five innings or less in his last three starts. With both starters’ layoffs, a little rust is to be expected. I am looking at the early total today. Take the Sox’ game to go under in the first five innings.
