White Sox vs Guardians prediction

Regardless of what you think of the pitching matchup, backing the White Sox isn’t an option when you consider the offense can’t string anything together. The White Sox have been held to 3 or fewer runs in 9 games this season. That’s not going to get it done against any team in MLB. The Guardians are heading in an opposite direction with 5 straight wins and the offense has been hot. Logan Allen is off to a strong start as well, allowing just 3 runs in 11.2 innings with 9 strikeouts. Only option here are the Guardians, and I’ll lay the RL to shave down the juice.
