The Chicago pitching staff has a 4.90 ERA, a 1.40 WHIP, and a .251 opponent batting average this season. The White Sox offense has scored 207 runs with a .240 batting average and a .299 on base percentage. Luis Robert is batting .273 with 13 home runs and 29 RBI’s for the White Sox. The projected starting pitcher for Chicago is Michael Kopech, who is 2-4 with a 4.83 ERA and a 1.33 WHIP over 50.1 innings pitched this year. 

Guardians Preview

The Cleveland Guardians are 21-27 this season and they have lost six of their last eight games. Cleveland won Game 1 in this series by a score of 3-0 on Monday night. The Cleveland pitching staff has a 3.81 ERA, a 1.27 WHIP, and a .253 opponent batting average. The Guardians offense has scored 169 runs with a .226 batting average and a .299 on base percentage this year. Jose Ramirez is batting .272 with six home runs and 25 RBI’s for the Guardians. The projected starting pitcher for Cleveland is Cal Quantrill, who is 2-2 with a 4.06 ERA and a 1.31 WHIP over 51.0 innings pitched this season.


Chicago is 3-8 in their last 11 Wednesday games and 8-20 in their last 28 game three’s of a series. The over is 7-3 in Chicago’s last 10 Wednesday games. Cleveland is 17-6 in their last 23 game three’s of a series and 17-8 in their last 25 Wednesday games. The under is 8-0 in Cleveland’s last 8 game three’s of a series. The under is 7-1 in these two teams last 8 head to head meetings in Cleveland.


Cleveland comes into this matchup with one of the lowest scoring offenses, but their pitching staff has been very good to start the year. The White Sox have struggled with their pitching staff and they have a team ERA close to five. Chicago is starting Michael Kopech, who has allowed two earned runs or fewer in three of his last four starts. Cleveland is starting Cal Quantrill, who has allowed three earned runs or fewer in four straight starts. I like the under in this game, as both pitchers have been solid in their last few starts.
