USA : MLB
The two top teams in the America League will meet in the Windy City to start off a 3 game series.
The White Sox are 6-1 in their last 7 games and they come into this game with good overall form. Arguably the best in the MLB right now. The will give the ball to Lance Lynn, who have been exceeding everyone expectations and are in tremendous form. He comes into this game with a 7-1 record and a stellar 1.23 ERA and 0.88 WHIP. Couple that with a offensive team that racks up 5.06 runs per game and the White Sox should feel good about their chances tonight.
Tampa Bay have had a quite soft stretch against struggling teams and have subsequently build up a good amount of confidence. However, they are up against a whole different monster in the WHite Sox tonight. The Rays can light up the stadium with their bats, but so can the White Sox. Tyler Glasnow gets the nod for Tampa with an ERA of 2.57.
With two good pitchers starting tonight, the deciding factor could just be their supporting pen down the stretch. Both these teams have the ability to shut down teams defensively, but the Tampa Rays are just the better all-round team. We are backing them to get the win.
