Stephen Nover's MLB Early Game Totals Crusher - 67% MLB Totals Run
(MLB) Chi White Sox vs. Kansas City, 07/29/2021 2:10 PM, Score: 0 - 5
Total: 9.50 | -112.00 Under
Result: Win
There's about a 9 mph wind blowing out to right, but this is more than offset by Carolos Rodon being on the mound and this being a daytime, getaway game that often favors an Under.

Rodon is one of the better pitchers in the American League with a 2.24 ERA. The Royals are averaging 3.3 runs during the first three games of this series.

Carlos Hernandez is slated to start for Kansas City. This will be his third consecutive start after working out of the bullpen. There is an unknown element to Hernandez. But the White Sox may not have Eloy Jimenez, who left Wednesday's game with groin tightness, and they haven't been producing many runs. The White Sox are averaging only 2.4 runs during their last seven games.

This has become a real division rivalry due to the past history of the respective managers, Mike Matheny and Tony LaRussa. These are old school guys who know the importance of playing for one important run rather than gambling on a big inning.
