Over the years the Chicago White Sox odds haven’t exactly been ones that MLB bettors starve to see each day. See, the White Sox entered the 2016 season having not been in the playoffs since 2008, and the majority of their success since the 1980′s have come in “one-off” years where things line up for them and go right. They are an organization that has not made the playoffs in consecutive years EVER – and that dates all the way back to 1903.
Chicago’s best year was in 2005 when the team was one of the best all season long (99-63 SU) and cruised to a World Series title by only losing one playoff game. The 11-1 SU record Chicago put up that post-season is one of the best ever in baseball, and there is no doubt that bettors who rode the White Sox that year made a pretty penny.

Bet On Chicago White Sox Games
The lack of consistent success from the White Sox organization means that support from bettors waivers at best. Since 2009 they’ve been a team that hovers around the + or – 10 games around .500 mark and it’s awfully tough to consistently make money betting on those teams. That’s especially true when their current franchise player – P Chris Sale – takes the hill and is often listed as a -180 or higher favourite.
Sale can be one of the best starters in the game when he’s on, but he’s been victimized by poor run support and the lack of a quality team around him in recent seasons. Losing a few of those games with him as a -180 favourite can take chunks out of your betting bankroll in a hurry.
Looking forward, it’s tough to really project consistent success for the White Sox because they’ve never shown it throughout their 100+ year history. There are those years like 2005 when everything breaks right for them, but catching value with those Chicago White Sox odds prior to that individual ascent is almost a crapshoot.
Sale and slugger 1B Jose Abreu are the cornerstones of this franchise for the foreseeable future, but they are going to need plenty of help around them before bettors can count on this team to win.
