Cleveland is 1-5 in their last 6 road games and 17-7 in their last 24 Wednesday games. The under is 5-0 in Cleveland’s last 5 Wednesday games. Chicago is 10-20 in their last 30 home games and 2-4 in their last 6 games. The under is 5-1-1 in Chicago’s last 7 game two’s of a series. The over is 6-1-1 in these two teams last 8 head to head meetings in Chicago.


Chicago was able to jump on Shane Bieber on Tuesday night for the Game 1 win and they will look to make it two straight over Cleveland here. Cleveland is starting Peyton Battenfield, who has allowed three earned runs or more in three of his last four appearances. Chicago is starting Mike Clevinger, who has allowed 15 earned runs over his last 22 innings of work. Neither starting pitcher has been very impressive, but I am going to take the White Sox at home.
