Chicago White Sox vs Colorado Rockies Prediction

I’m not running to the window to back either the Rockies or White Sox, two of the worst teams in baseball. A pitching matchup of Dakota Hudson and Drew Thorpe doesn’t make things any better, with them both having ERAs in the fives. So, give me two terrible teams and two rough pitchers, I’m looking at the over. Yes, both offenses aren’t lighting the world on fire, but something has to give. Give me the over 8.5 runs in the first game between the Rockies and White Sox.
