Cleveland is 23-9 in their last 32 game three’s of a series and 1-6 in their last 7 road games. The under is 6-0 in Cleveland’s last 6 game three’s of a series. Chicago is 11-22 in their last 33 games and 7-20 in their last 27 Thursday games. The under is 4-2 in Chicago’s last 6 games. The over is 5-1 in these two teams last 6 head to head meetings.


The White Sox have won the first two games in this series and they will be going for the sweep in this matchup. Cleveland has struggled to score runs all season and they are second to last in runs scored in the MLB. Cleveland is starting Logan Allen, who has allowed two earned runs or fewer in three of his last four starts. Chicago is starting Dylan Cease, who has allowed 17 earned runs over his last 20 innings of work. I like the Guardians to get the win and avoid the sweep.
