Chicago -1½ +141 over TAMPA BAY

5:10 PM EST. The Rays are the top team in the American League and they are a dog at home. Certainly, that might peak the interest of an unsuspecting market, no?

Michael Wacha (RHP - TB) will take the mound for Tampa, but dude has been getting torched all month. Wacha is 0-2, sporting an 11.57 ERA in August. Those poor results are backed up by an inflated 1.176 OPS and .435 average from wide-eyed opposing hitters.

The White Sox are coasting in the AL Central, but this series with Tampa should get their blood pumping, as they are looking up at the Rays in the overall AL standings. Lucas Giolito (RHP - CHI) will go for the South Side and he's been on point in his last four starts. While just 1-0 across that span, Giolito has posted a 2.03 ERA with 32 strikeouts to just seven walks across 26.2 innings. The White Sox have also received a boost from the return of star outfielder Luis Robert. Robert missed over a month with a strained hip flexor, but the time off served him well, as he's gone 12-for-28 with a pair of dingers, six RBIs and an OPS of 1.163 since his return. White Sox hold all the value here.
