Here’s the latest installment of the Play of the Day, which uses odds from the South Point. Our three sports writers started with a $10,000 bankroll — fictional, of course.
Chicago White Sox plus-170 against Cleveland Indians: $300 to win $510
Sometimes you just feel like taking a shot with an underdog, and that’s where I’m at with today’s Play of the Day. I don’t love the White Sox side here, but it seems like a little too big of a price against a Cleveland team that’s only 6-8 against Chicago this season.
Of course, the number has a lot to do with Chicago’s seven-game losing streak. But no matter. Streaks end, and that’s what’s going to happen tonight.
Standings: Bern (43-33-1, $12,917), Keefer (37-41, $9,562), Brewer (30-44-3, $1,200)
