BETTING TRENDS

Chi White Sox are 10-5 SU in their last 15 games on the road.

Chi White Sox are 1-5 SU in their last 6 games when playing on the road against Cleveland.

The total has gone OVER in 4 of Cleveland's last 6 games against Chi White Sox.

Cleveland Guardians are 4-2 SU in their last 6 games at home.

Prediction

The Guardians bounced back and started this home series with a win scoring 8 runs in the game. For Game 1 of the double-header they'll send their ace Shane Bieber who struggled in his last start vs Tigers allowing 5 runs but dominated the White Sox earlier this season holding them to only 1 runs across 6 innings. The White Sox continue to struggle against the Guardians as they're 1-5 in the last 6 head to head games. They'll send Davis Martin to the mound who has pitched only in 5 games this season. Expect a dominant performance from Bieber and the Guardians to win the first game of the double-header.

PICK:  Guardians ML (-150)
