Cleveland Indians vs. Chicago White Sox MLB Prediction:
The White Sox have not been playing great baseball lately, but I look for them to play well in this one. Their offense has been quiet the last few games, but it definitely has the chance to break out in this series.
Chicago is the better team and they should be able to take down an injury riddled Indians team. Also, Chicago has played very well in Chicago this year.
Chicago has the starting pitcher advantage with Keuchel over McKenzie. I look him to toss a good game and for the Chicago bats to get right against the Cleveland starter.
I like the White Sox on the run line.
