The Chicago White Sox will play the Cleveland Guardians in Game 1 of their series at Progressive Field on Monday night.

The Chicago White Sox are 6-3 this season and have won two of their last three games. Chicago is coming off of a series win against Tampa Bay, where they won two of the three games. The Chicago pitching staff has a 3.24 ERA, 1.23 WHIP, and a .209 opponent batting average this season. The White Sox offense has scored 38 runs with a .228 batting average and a .276 on base percentage. Tim Anderson has led the White Sox with a .393 batting average, one home run, and four RBI’s. The projected starter for Chicago is Dallas Keuchel, who is 1-0 with a 5.40 ERA and a 1.20 WHIP over 5 innings pitched this season.

The Cleveland Guardians are 4-5 this season and have lost three games in a row. Cleveland was swept at home in their last series against San Francisco. The Guardians pitching staff has a 3.49 ERA, 1.08 WHIP, and a .209 opponent batting average. The Cleveland offense has scored 49 runs with a .273 batting average and a .345 on base percentage this season. Jose Ramirez has three home runs and 15 RBI’s, while batting .457 this season.

Chicago is 1-6 in Keuchel’s last 7 road starts and the under is 5-1 in Chicago’s last 6 games against a right-handed starter. Cleveland is 1-5 in McKenzie’s last 6 starts during game one of a series and the under is 6-1 in McKenzie’s last 7 home starts.

The Guardians are coming off of a very rough series where they got swept at home. The White Sox are off to a good start this year and have one of the better teams in baseball. McKenzie has been able to keep his walks down, which is a very good sign for him, but can he keep it up? I like the White Sox in this game, but I like the over more. I think both teams will have plenty of scoring chances in this game with two pitchers that are not great.
