MLB Baseball - Preview
If familiarity breeds contempt, there should be animosity aplenty on Friday when the Cleveland Indians and the Chicago White Sox meet at U.S. Cellular Field.
The Indians will pin their hopes on the pitching of righthander Carlos Carrasco in this game. Carrasco has a 0-3 record and a 7.78 ERA this season.
Meanwhile, it'll be Jose Quintana who starts for the White Sox. Lefthander Quintana is 3-2 with a 3.83 ERA so far this season.
Cleveland lost its last outing, a 7-3 result against the Orioles on June 27. Bettors who backed the Orioles at -138 on the moneyline won on the day, and the total score (10) sent OVER bettors to the payout window.
Last time out for Chicago, they were a 3-0 loser as they battled the Mets at home. Moneyline bettors who got the Mets at +113 were rewarded, while the 3 combined runs moved the game UNDER for totals bettors.
Cleveland: 40-38 SU
