Royals vs White Sox prediction

The White Sox are not backable given what we’ve seen through 15 games, and it’s just that simple. I also have a rule where I don’t back pitchers making their MLB debut because I don’t know what to expect. Pitching in the big leagues is different. Nick Nastrini is a top-10 prospect for the White Sox, but I need to have a sample size to back him with confidence. The White Sox are terrible as a team and the offense isn’t producing. Give me the Royals and the RL for max betting value.
