Coming into Friday May 24 there was a very high probability of a severe weather outbreak in the Chicago area at the time the Orioles-White Sox game was set to go off.  Understand what happens to your bet by scrolling down.


Orioles @ White Sox Friday Game

Chicago White Sox career statistics vs. Corbin Burnes are 15 of 47 at bats with four home runs, two from Paul DeJong.  Burnes is 4-2 with a 2.56 ERA. 

Burnes fanned 11 while allowing one run in six innings Sunday as the Orioles bested the Mariners 6-3.  He allowed one run his previous start as well.

Chris Flevin will start for the White Sox.  He's 2-4 with a 5.48 ERA.  In 48 at bats, the Orioles have not hit a home run off of Flevin but they do have 15 hits and 5 RBIs.

Know the Rules When Games Are Suspended, Postponed

The Orioles and St. Louis Cardinals suspended their game Tuesday night after a rainstorm rolled over Busch Stadium ahead of the bottom of the sixth inning. They plan to resume the contest, which was tied 1-1 when the grounds crew rolled out the tarp, at 12:15 p.m. Wednesday and play their series finale 30 minutes after.

Sportsbooks have different rules on suspended games just like they do for postponements. Most books may keep the bet active if the game is going to be resumed within 24 to 36 hours.

With DraftKings, for example, Bets on games suspended after they have started will have action as long as the game is resumed within 36 hours of the original start time.
