MLB Betting Preview
Chicago White Sox (41-34) at Los Angeles Dodgers (35-40)
Tuesday, 10:10 pm Eastern
The Chicago White Sox open a three-game series on Tuesday against the Los Angeles Dodgers looking to break a nine-game road losing streak. Suddenly the White Sox look vulnerable, having lost eight of their last 12 games while the Minnesota Twins have won eight of their last 9 to cut the Sox lead to just a game and a half in the American League Central. The White Sox were swept by the Cubs over the weekend. “The last three teams we’ve played on the road, we’ve been swept or just won one game,” manager Ozzie Guillen said, “I don’t think it’s a good sign for a team that has to win, or wants to win. Like I said, this is not a basketball team. To win and get in the division, you have to win some games on the road, and we’re not doing a good job out there yet.”

The Dodgers lost two of three to Cleveland over the weekend and they are only 2-7 in Interleague play. “We haven’t put anything together,” manager Joe Torre said, “That’s why I’m saying you win five games in a row, all of a sudden you have a whole different personality and a different status in the division.”
