Strong winds for a baseball game played in Chicago on a random weekday afternoon — a tale as old as time.

While Wrigley Field is associated more with windy afternoon weather due to the sheer number of Cubs day games, all eyes are on Mariners vs. White Sox at Guaranteed Rate Field in Chicago on Thursday afternoon.

Yes, strong winds are expected to impact Mariners vs. White Sox today, but referring to these winds are just “strong” is an understatement.

In fact, based on the latest Mariners vs. White Sox weather forecast, winds could reach historic levels on Thursday afternoon.

Mariners vs. White Sox Weather Forecast

According to the National Weather Service, 25-30 mph winds are expected Thursday afternoon in Chicago, with the potential for gusts as high as 55 mph.

With average breezes of 25 mph also in the latest Mariners vs. White Sox forecast, this game has the potential to be one of the windiest in recent memory.

According to our Bet Labs software, which tracks and archives historical MLB betting data since the start of the 2005 season, just 10 games have been played in steady winds of at least 25 mph over that span.

If you’re curious about when the windiest game on record was, that came from a Tigers vs. Guardians contest in Cleveland back on May 8, 2010, when average breezes sat at 33 mph.

And when it comes to baseball betting, it’s not only the wind speed that matters, but also the direction.

The latest Mariners vs. White Sox weather forecast is showing winds blowing from right field across to left field, so there doesn’t appear to be a specific advantage for over/under bettors.
