This game will be played at Guaranteed Rate Field at 8:10 PM ET on Tuesday, May 24, 2022.
Why Bet The White Sox:
✅ Dylan Cease has done a good job for the Chi Sox thus far. He’s had a couple of rough starts, but in the other six, Cease has been outstanding. The 26-year-old right-hander is 4-1 with a 3.09 ERA, 1.17 WHIP, and 2.16 FIP and leads the majors in strikeouts with 67. The current Red Sox are slashing only .216/.338/.249 with zero home runs in 46 at-bats against Cease.
✅ The White Sox have gone 7-2 in their previous nine encounters with the Red Sox and are undefeated in four straight meetings with Boston. The Red Sox are unbeaten in their last five tilts overall, but they’ve struggled on the road lately, going just 5-9 over their previous 14 outings away from home.
✅ It’s hard to trust Nick Pivetta even though he’s coming off a complete game against the Houston Astros. The 29-year-old righty has been awful through his first five starts of the season and carries a 2-4 record, 4.22 ERA, and 1.15 WHIP into Tuesday’s contest in Chicago. The current White Sox are 15-for-60 against Pivetta, who’s allowed ten earned runs across 21.2 innings on the road this season.
Boston Red Sox
The Sawx extended their winning streak to five games with an 8-4 victory in ten innings against Seattle last Sunday. They swept a four-game set against the Mariners, improving to 19-22 on the season.

Chicago White Sox
The White Sox beat the Yankees in Sunday’s doubleheader at Yankee Stadium, 3-1 and 5-0, improving to 21-20 on the season. They are second in the AL Central, four games behind Minnesota.
