Preview

The Chicago White Sox and the Cleveland Guardians will meet again to play a 4-game series at the Progressive Field. The Guardians lost their last series against the Royals while White Sox tied 2-2 vs the Detroit Tigers. The Guardians are 4-1 against the White Sox this season.

Chicago White Sox

The White Sox get here with a 41-43 record and have won 3 of their last 5 games. The team is averaging 4.29 runs per game and allowing 4.73 runs. Jose Abreu leads with 10 home runs and 40 RBI while Andrew Vaughn is batting for .300 avg.

Dylan Cease leads the team with a 2.45 ERA, 133 strikeouts and 7 wins recorded.

Probable Pitcher: Lance Lynn (1-1, 5.33 ERA)

Lynn will be on the mound in the 1st game of the series for the White Sox. On Wednesday against the Twins, Lynn pitched five innings and gave up five earned runs on six hits, two walks, and four strikeouts. He did not factor in the decision. He has a 4-3 record with an ERA of 3.19 and 56 strikeouts in 8 appearances against Cleveland in his career.

Cleveland Guardians

The Guardians get here with a 41-42 record and have lost 8 of their last 10 games. The team is averaging 4.31 runs per game and allowing 4.42 runs. Jose Ramirez leads the team batting for .290 avg, 17 home runs and 66 RBI. 

Shane Bieber leads the pitching staff with a 3.44 ERA, 99 strikeouts and 3 wins recorded for the Guardians.

Probable Pitcher:  Cal Quantrill (4-5, 3.86 ERA)

Quantrill will be on the mound in the 1st game of the series for the Guardians. Quantrill took the loss in an 11-4 loss to the Tigers on Tuesday, allowing six runs, three of which were earned, on eight hits and two walks while striking out four. He has a 0-1 record with an ERA of 2.03 and 20 strikeouts in 8 appearances against the White Sox in his career.

BETTING TRENDS

Chi White Sox are 1-4 SU in their last 5 games when playing on the road against Cleveland.

The total has gone UNDER in 8 of Chi White Sox's last 12 games when playing as the favourite..

Cleveland Guardians are 1-4 SU in their last 5 games against an opponent in the American League.

The total has gone UNDER in 4 of Cleveland's last 5 games played on a Monday.

Prediction

The Guardians have struggled lately as they have lost 8 of the last 10 games but they are 20-17 at home so far this season and 4-1 against the White Sox. They'll send Quantrill to the mound who's coming from a bad game against the Tigers. The White Sox have a good record on the road this season and have won their last 3 games away from home. Lance Lynn will get the ball and he was also pounded in his last start so I expect both offenses to pound these pitchers so I'll take the over.

PICK:  Over 9 (-110)
