The books don't want anyone betting the Boston Red Sox playing at the Chicago White Sox.  The line on this game has shot up from around -140 to -171.

We would stay clear of Chicago in this one.  We don't take sides priced over -160 though.

The UNDER is 10-2 in the last 12 meetings.

Boston is finally starting to get their act together.  They've won six of their last ten games following a disastrous 2-8 start. 

PITCHING MATCHUP: Red Sox LH Eduardo Rodriguez (2-2, 6.16 ERA) vs. White Sox LH Manny Banuelos (2-0, 2.70)

Rodriguez was knocked around by Oakland for four runs on seven hits and two walks in 4 2/3 innings on Monday but got enough support from Boston's offense to escape without a loss. The 26-year-old Venezuelan was coming off a six-inning stint against Detroit in which he yielded one run and two hits while earning a win. Rodriguez made one start against Chicago last season and struck out 12 batters over 5 2/3 frames while allowing one run en route to victory.

Banuelos is trying to secure a spot in the rotation after beginning the season in a long-relief role and posted his first win as a starter after holding Baltimore to two runs and five hits in 5 2/3 innings on Monday. The 28-year-old is 1-0 with a 1.86 ERA in two turns, registering 10 strikeouts over 9 2/3 frames. Banuelos is making his first career appearance against Boston but is 2-0 with a 2.40 ERA in four games - one start - at home.
