Chicago White Sox
The Chicago White Sox are looking great this year and now have a 10 game lead in the division as they look to have things really wrapped up things in the AL Central and will now look to build momentum going into the postseason.
Now that this batting lineup is healthy, they are looking very scary and they really look like they can take on just about any pitcher in the league especially because they bring with them a ton of depth.
They have also had their pitching together all year long, with the starting rotation providing 46 quality starts which is fantastic and ranks them in 5th in the entire league and they also boast a 3.66 ERA as a unit.
Carlos Rodon is on the hill for this one and he has just about as good a matchup as you could ask for against this Cubs team and his already impressive ERA of 2.49 could very well improve when all is said and done on Saturday.
The Chicago Cubs are now just 2-8 in their last 10 games and I do not think we are going to see much of a recovery coming from this team especially because of the players they lost at the deadline, as they essentially traded away all their best players.
The Cubs are now left with a pretty brutal batting lineup who has only a very small chance of having success against Rodon, so even though this seems like a lot of juice on the road White Sox it really is a justifiable price given this matchup.
Adbert Alzolay is the projected starter here on Saturday and he will need to provide some heroics here to give this team a chance and I have not seen enough from him this year to think that that is going to happen, as he enters with a 4-11 record and an ERA approaching 5.

Free Chicago White Sox vs. Chicago Cubs MLB Prediction:
Just about every stat you could point to suggests that the White Sox will not only win, but win big. I think they can cover the run and a half spread on the runline, as they have the far superior pitcher and the better batting lineup and given how these two teams matchup we really should need to lay more juice here.
