Boston Looking To Bounce Back Against White Sox
The Boston Red Sox play host tp the Chicago White Sox on Saturday, and this could be a good MLB bet to make. Betting online for baseball has started to pick up, and these are two of the better teams in the American League.
Chicago comes into this game having won four straight, including the series opener on Friday night. The White Sox are still just 12-13 and are in second place in the AL Central Division.
Boston has struggled to begin 2022 and is 10-17. The Red Sox are currently in last place in the AL East, and they are going to get buried if they don’t start winning games.
The MLB lines for this game have both teams at -105 on the moneyline, highlighting how tight this game might be.
White Sox Leaning on Pitching
The Chicago White Sox are still waiting for the offense to really get going, as this team has scored just 83 runs.
Dylan Cease will take the mound on Saturday, and he has gone 3-1 with a 2.48 ERA. Chicago has a dominant bullpen that can shut the door, and getting an early lead is key.
The White Sox have belted 23 home runs, including a mammoth two-run shot by Luis Robert in the series opener. Tim Anderson leads the team with a .330 but other players have struggled to get on base.
Red Sox Need More Power
The Boston Red Sox have hit 16 home runs, and several of the top hitters have been scuffling. Boston has had some players hit for a good average, but they just continue looking for the big hit.
Jackie Bradley Jr. spoke about the offensive struggles after the loss on Friday night, saying, “We’ve got to pull together and start having a lot of collectively good at-bats.”
Boston will need to find some offense as Nick Pivetta is set to make this start. Pivetta has gone 0-4 with a 7.84 ERA, and he doesn’t always give his team a chance to win.
White Sox vs Red Sox Head-to-Head
Friday night was the first meeting of the season between Chicago and Boston, and they met just seven times a season ago. The White Sox won four of the seven games in 2021, but there hasn’t been much separation in this head-to-head matchup.

White Sox vs Red Sox Prediction
The White Sox looked sharp in the series-opening win, and the latest scores and odds show you that they might be turning things around. Chicago also has a clear edge in the pitching matchup, but Boston will keep this game close.
The Red Sox simply have too much talent to continue to lose games, and that lineup should be able to do some damage on Saturday. Ultimately, the Red Sox are going to come up a bit short once again, but don’t expect there to be much separation in this game.
