NEW YORK YANKEES (66-42, +9.8 Units)

at CHICAGO WHITE SOX (52-56, -8.1 Units)

First pitch: Wednesday, 8:10 p.m. EDT
Line: New York -110, Chicago +100, Total: 9

The Yankees look to solidify their spot in the playoffs while pushing the White Sox further out of the playoff picture when they visit Chicago on Wednesday night. Odds.

After Tuesday night’s 6-0 victory, the Yankees have won five straight and eight of 10. Meanwhile, the White Sox have dropped four in a row. But considering the strong performance of Sox starter Gavin Floyd since the All-Star break (3-0, 0.81 ERA over three starts) and Yankee right-hander A.J. Burnett’s increasingly shaky performance (0-3, 4.83 ERA in five July starts), CHICAGO is the pick on Wednesday.

The FoxSheets provide a four-star trend working against the Yanks:

Play Against – Any team (N.Y. YANKEES) – red hot hitting team – batting .333 or better over their last 5 games against opponent with a hot starting pitcher- WHIP <= 0.800 over his last 3 starts. (35-9 since 1997.) (79.5%, +26.5 units. Rating = 4*). Scores.

The FoxSheets also show a highly-rated trend backing the UNDER as the play.

N.Y. YANKEES are 16-2 UNDER (88.9%, +13.9 Units) after 3 or more consecutive wins this season. The average score was NY YANKEES 2.8, OPPONENT 2.8 – (Rating = 4*).

Floyd (9-9, 3.96 ERA) had been sold during the first half of the year, but he’s really turned it on since the All-Star break. He allowed two runs (one earned) over 7.2 innings in Detroit, then threw 7.2 shutout innings in Cleveland, followed by seven innings of one-run ball against Boston last Friday. He has a 16-to-3 K/BB ratio since the All-Star break. Over the past three seasons, Floyd is 2-1 with a 3.06 ERA in five starts against the Yankees. The Sox are 4-1 in those games, including 3-0 in Floyd’s starts at U.S. Cellular Field.

The past month has not gone well for Burnett (8-9, 4.23 ERA). After averaging just 3.8 walks per 9 innings through the end of June, he’s walked 5.2 per 9 innings over his past five starts. He failed to get out of the sixth in three of those starts. On Friday, he struck out 10 over eight innings against Baltimore, but also allowed four runs and two homers in the Yankees’ only loss of that series. Since joining the Yankees in 2009, Burnett has been shaky against the White Sox: 0-3 with a 9.00 ERA over three starts. However, he held them to one run over eight innings in a hard-luck loss in April. Las Vegas odds.

Despite the absence of All-Star 3B Alex Rodriguez (knee) for nearly a month, the Yankees haven’t missed a beat offensively. Since A-Rod went down, they’re fourth in the majors with 5.43 runs per game.
