Chicago White Sox vs. Kansas City Royals MLB Prediction:
The White Sox need to take care of business when facing teams such as the Royals. They were unable to do so on Monday, but I look for them to get the win on Wednesday.
The Sox are the better team and they have showed that for the most part against Kansas City this year. I just think game 1 was an off day.
I expect the White Sox to hit Bubic given how well they have hit lefties and for Giolito to toss a solid game.
Give me the White Sox on the moneyline.
