Chicago White Sox vs. Cleveland Indians MLB Prediction:
I look for the Indians to start off this series right. In this particular one, I am not totally confident in the White Sox.
Chicago is the better team, but I am not sold they will win this one. They have not been playing that well as of late and I see that trend continuing.
I feel that Aaron Civale will keep up his good pitching and the Tribe will do enough against Lopez to get a win.
I am taking the Indians as home underdogs.
