The San Francisco Giants have a perfect record in interleague play this season, which provides them a major edge against the Chicago White Sox Tuesday night. Let’s take a closer look at the MLB betting lines for this affair at U.S. Cellular Field in the Windy City.

Unfamiliar territory
San Francisco will look to avoid losing four games in a row for the first time during the 2014 campaign, as it managed to drop three straight against the Colorado Rockies despite holding a lead after seven innings in each contest. The Giants still possess the best record in baseball at 43-27, which has been helped by winning all six meetings against American League opponents.

Over the last two-plus seasons, the franchise has compiled an even 26-26 record on the road with a money line of -100 to -125.

Unable to make up ground
Chicago has scored just six total runs during its current four-game losing streak, which has led to a five-game deficit behind the Detroit Tigers in the AL Central standings. The White Sox will need outfielder Adam Eaton to lead the offensive attack, as he went 6 for 10 in their most recent series against the Kansas City Royals.

MLB handicappers will find that the club is 6-9 as home underdogs of +100 to +125, with the 'over' going 8-7 in that situation.

Giants starting pitcher Matt Cain (1-4, 3.84 ERA) suffered a 6-2 home defeat to the Washington Nationals last time out, as he allowed four runs and three hits over five innings of work. The right-hander is 0-2 with a 3.94 ERA in six road efforts, with opposing hitters batting .250 against him (.174 at home). In 22 career interleague outings, Cain owns an 8-10 record and 2.71 ERA.

White Sox starting pitcher John Danks (5-5, 4.17 ERA) has tallied back-to-back wins, including an 8-2 home victory over the Detroit Tigers last time out, as he surrendered two runs and six hits over seven frames.The left-hander is 3-2 with a 2.96 ERA in seven home appearances—issuing 14 walks and striking out 31 batters in 45.2 combined innings. Danks received a no decision in his only career start versus the Giants on May 18, 2008 at AT&T Park.

I’m going to recommend that readers back the Giants as one of their MLB picks, as they’ve won seven consecutive games versus AL opponents dating back to last season.
