Chicago Cubs vs. Chicago White Sox MLB Prediction:
I look for the White Sox to play well in this one. I do not give the Cubs much chance in this series.
The southsiders are the better team and I feel they will show that in this game. The Sox cannot lose to teams like this.
I look for Keuchel to be solid and for the Sox to hit around Thompson enough to get a win.
I will go with the White Sox on the run line here.
