Our Most Enticing MLB Pick for Sunday May 12

The Chicago White Sox have the Cleveland Guardians number and it is killing sports handicappers and gamblers alike.  We believe that changes today, but there is a price to pay.


We realize the White Sox seem to have Cleveland's number here but Logan Allen doesn't have a win in his last three starts and this one affords an excellent opportunity.

Chicago White Sox career statistics vs. Logan Allen have 12 hits in 47 at bats against him but 7 of those came courtesy of Andrew Vaughn and Vaughn has struggled this season.  He comes in with a hitting average of just .204.

Michael Soroka is 0-4 with a 6.34 ERA coming into this one.  Soroka was charged with four runs (three earned) over five innings on Tuesday in a loss to the Rays. He allowed two earned runs and three hits over 4 1/3 innings in the White Sox loss to the Twins and two runs on four hits in five innings in a no-decision against the Twins.

Five of the last ten in this series have seen no more than 6 runs scored.

Josh Naylor is 3-for-4 against him.

This is definitely a lean in favor of Cleveland. The line moved from -145 to -162 and by Sunday morning sportsbooks and pay per head MLB betting providers alike were sitting on the Guardians -170.
