Cleveland is 5-1 in McKenzie’s last six starts on five days of rest. The over is 5-1 in Lynn’s last six Friday starts. The Guardians are 5-1 in their last 6 during game 1 of a series. The White Sox are 7-1 in their last 8 road games vs. a team with a winning record.
McKenzie has been strong this season and Cleveland has won five of his last six starts on five days rest. The White Sox’s bats are going to be ice cold here, and that is going to be the difference as Cleveland gets the job done. Back the Guardians on the money line.
