The Chicago White Sox are looking to be a seriously dangerous team this year, and they no doubt will be up for the challenge the Yankees bring this Saturday afternoon.
Chicago White Sox
You can really see based off of the Wihte Sox’s last series that they can get the job done any which way, winning the first game of the series with 16 runs up on the board, and closing that series out with a win with only 2 runs.
Despite the recent controversy over the ”unwritten rules” of baseball, Yermin Mercedes remains one of the game’s most exciting breakout stars coming into this contest hitting for a pretty insane average of .358.
White Sox fans also have to be excited about the discipline at the plate they have seen as well, with their team averaging first in OBP showing that they not only can hit for power, but can also grind you down with walks and singles which makes this team much more dangerous then perhaps they were last year.
Dylan Cease will get his first start against the New York Yankees this Saturday and he should be in a decent enough spot to have a good game considering the excellent numbers he has racked up this season.
New York Yankees
The Yankees are 9-3 in their last 12 outings, but they have not really played anyone too tough and this will represent a big step up in class in comparison to the teams they have been playing during this nice stretch of games.
It has all been about the Yankees pitching staff lately, as the Yankees won their last two games over the Texas Rangers by a score of 2-0 on consecutive nights and they will likely need to continue being that good if they want to pick up a series win against a tough White Sox team.
The Bronx Bombers will also send a pretty decent starter of their own to the mound with Gerrit Cole getting the call and there is no reason to believe he will slip up here against this White Sox batting lineup, as he has now brought his ERA all the way down to 2.03.

Free Chicago White Sox vs. New York Yankees MLB Prediction:
This is a huge price on the underdog White Sox here at +171 and given the fact that I believe this will be a tight 1 run game, I think we can give it a shot on the underdog here, as laying -205 with the Yankees seems pretty crazy.
If you are looking to play this one a bit more safe, a bet on the runline would not be bad either, as the price is good, and you still pick up the victory if the Yankees only win by 1.
