White Sox rewarding bettors over past nine games
Don't look now, but the Chicago White Sox are cashing in for backers after a torrid nine-game stretch.
The Pale Hose defeated the Texas Rangers 5-2 Sunday to take two of the three-game series and improve to 8-1 over the past nine ball games.
Any $100 bettor would be up $991 if they had wagered on the South Siders in each of their previous nine ball games.
They were favored just once in those wins. They defeated the Minnesota Twins 8-5 back on August 17 as -125 faves.
White Sox pitching has been sparkling during their eight victories posting an ERA of 2.04 in those wins.
The Sox open a three-game series at home versus the Houston Astros Monday. Chicago is currently a -150 fave in Monday's opener.
