    White Sox at Guardians picks and predictions

    Prediction

    White Sox 5, Guardians 3.

    Money line

    Quantrill has posted some generous rates around the margins, and Lynn’s small-sample-size numbers swing the other way. The Chicago right-hander struggled in his last start, but that was against a better Minnesota offense and on the heels of back-to-back high-pitch-count efforts. And late-career Lynn has been solid against lefty bats which is a big key against this Cleveland offense.

    CHICAGO (-115) IS A STRONG PLAY.

    Run line/Against the spread

    Chicago -1.5 (+135) has some slight lean to it – would be worth some action at +140 or better.

    Over/Under

    Both clubs have some underlying-analytics drag in their batting numbers. And Statcast quality-of-contact figures also call for both offenses to cool off.

    But with two fly-ball pitchers on a warm night with a batter’s breeze in the forecast chips away at potential value. So does the pricing here. STEER CLEAR.
