Under a good bet Monday between Sox and Tribe

It's no secret that I've loved these Indians Unders all season long. 

The Cleveland Indians are the second best Under team in Major League baseball. They are 32-18-and-3 to the Under in 53 games. That's a 64 percent clip, which is great for your bankroll. 

The percentage gets even better when you look at the Indians' splits against the Chicago White Sox. According to Rotoworld's Edge Finder, Cleveland and Chicago are 5-and-1 to the Under in six meetings this season. And we've got four more chances to strike this week.

Tonight's matchup between Dane Dunning (2-0, 2.33 ERA) and Aaron Civale (3-5, 3.80 ERA) has already seen some respected money move to the Under. The opening total was 8.5 runs and that lasted all of about an hour. The market currently sits at O/U 8 runs and PointsBet Sportsbook is dealing -110 juice each way. 

Dunning has been a breath of fresh air for a White Sox club that has desperately needed a trusted third arm in their rotation. He's not the type of guy that'll kill you with overpowering speed, but he pounds the zone with strikes and gets outs. Dunning's 0.93 WHIP and 28-to-9 K-to-BB ratio over 27 innings is extremely impressive for a rookie.  

Civale ain't too shabby either. His WHIP is a little higher at 1.20, but he doesn't really hurt himself with control problems. 13 walks issued over 64 innings will definitely do the trick most nights. It's rare that Civale finds himself in a jam because of wildness. The Indians are 7-and-3 to the Under in his 10 starts. 

And for all the perception on the White Sox being an offensive juggernaut that bashes home runs all over the ballpark, they've been a very Under heavy team as of late. 7 of their last 8 games have stayed Under the total thanks to a rock solid bullpen and very strong starting pitching. 

Play on White Sox-Indians Under 8 runs (-110).
