Kansas City Royals vs. Chicago White Sox MLB Prediction:
The White Sox did not take care of business when they last saw the Royals. I look for that trend to change in this series.
Chicago is the better team and they often beat teams they are better than. I feel very good backing the Sox at home here.
The White Sox have the starting pitching advantage with Giolito on the hill. I look for him to keep up his good pitching and for the Sox to do some damage against Hernandez and that bullpen.
I like the White Sox on the run line.
