    White Sox at Pittsburgh Pirates interleague

    Pittsburgh should have very good hitting weather for an interleague game vs the White Sox

    the thing that concerns me a bit is with the White Sox losing the DH in the national league park

    I'm going with White Sox to win, but really want to add pick OVER total.....any thoughts about the TOTAL o/u 9 ???


    CHW WHITE SOX +133 ML // 2 units to win 2.66


    White Sox coming off an interleague win Sunday at the Cubs (after losing the first 2-games of that series). Meantime, Pirates lost 5-0 on Sunday at home as they were shutout by the Giants, but won the first two games of that series. So it looks like a little bit of "who's hot, who's not" short-term here.

    Pirates beat the White Sox both games when they played just last week. Ok they've been the better team this year. But now look at what today and tomorrow bring:

    today is pitching matchup Reynaldo Lopez at Trevor Williams.
    tomorrow is scheduled starters Carson Fulmer at Jameson Taillon.

    Taillon has regressed a bit lately, but my logic here says the Pirates WON'T win 4-games in a row against the Sox. Not that it's impossible, but I'm going with the feeling the White Sox win either today or tomorrow.....so having said that..... I definitely feel today is the better matchup for the Sox to win. In fact, these exact same two starters faced-off on May 9 and it was the White Sox taking a 4-0 lead in the first few innings, but their bullpen blew it in the top of the 9th inning, giving up 4 runs to lose by a final score of 6-5.

    so do you like the Over 9 here or pass?

    I already got White Sox to win

    Looks like a "for sure Over"....which we know how that can play out

    not adding the Over pick, just because of the national league rules

    maybe one of the starting pitchers goes off...hope it's Mr. no make that Sr. Lopez

    I think Over is the best option!

    could not have been more wrong about Lopez for the White Sox

    then I pass on the Over, which the Pirates are gonna get by themselves!
