Id like to take a shot on Chicago and the plus money, but the problem is that the White Sox have had five crucial games to their postseason potential since the second half of the season started, and the White Sox have choked so far, losing all five of those games following Tuesdays blowout. Novas struggles against anyone not named the Cubs continued in his last start, as he gave up four runs for the sixth straight start against a non-Chicago team on the other side. I just cant trust the White Sox in their current form, so its Royals or pass for me in this one. Kansas City, and Duffy specifically, have had ups and downs this season, but the difference is that the Royals have been the better team in the first two games of the set and Duffy has some documented success over the White Sox in his career with a big enough sample size.
