Disappointing Squads Clash in Washington: Seattle vs Chicago

Disappointing Squads Clash in Washington: Seattle vs Chicago

August MLB slump has buried the White Sox

After giving their fans some playoff hope, following an eight-game winning streak at the end of July, a sluggish August has pushed Chicago back out of contention. The hope was real as the White Sox were just 2.5 games out an American League Wild Card spot on July 29. Thanks to an 8-11 August record, Chicago is now five games back and they trail six teams in the MLB AL postseason chase.

Seattle Mariners are battling Boston as biggest MLB disappointment

Following a 87-75 record in 2014, where the Mariners missed the MLB playoffs by just one game, bigger things were expected in Seattle this season. That hasn’t materialized though as the Mariners are sporting a 56-66 record and they are 10.5 games behind Houston in the American League West. A Wild Card berth also appears to be a pipe dream as the Mariners are seven games out of that race.

White Sox vs Mariners MLB Prediction: A less than stellar pitchers duel is on tap here as LHP Carlos Rodon (5-5 ERA 4.42) faces Vidal Nuno (0-2 ERA 3.14) in the battle on the bump tonight. The South Siders sticks have been impressive as Chicago has scored 19 runs in their last two games. Tie the OVER and the White Sox together with a 300 unit parlay on the MLB odds posted at TopBet.

The Oscars: Nomadland The Pick Of The Flicks

Making Oscars 2021 picks isn't like wagering on a sporting event. While certainly there is the so-called Oscar buzz that's generated around certain films, the decision on which movie, director or actor gains the Academy Award is solely based on a secret ballot held by the members of the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences. There are no past performances to assess, so going with an underdog isn't necessarily a bad strategy.
