Chicago Cubs vs. Chicago White Sox MLB Prediction:
The White Sox have been playing well and I look for that to continue in this game. I have a hard time seeing the Cubs winning this game.
The southsiders are a much better team and I feel they will take care of business in this game. It would not look good for them if they lose to the Cubs.
Lynn is a far better pitcher and I feel he will pitch better than Mill and get his team a win.
I like the White Sox on the run line here.
