The Chicago Cubs and Chicago White Sox face off on Tuesday in an MLB showdown at Guaranteed Rate Field. 

The Cubs come into this game with a 48-51 record overall and over the weekend they were able to sweep the St. Louis Cardinals. The Cubs are averaging 4.84 runs while pitching is giving up 4.42 runs per game. The offense is ranked 10th while the pitching is ranked 16th. Christopher Morel has hit 15 home runs and driven in 43 RBIs. On the mound for the Cubs will be Kyle Hendricks who sits with a 3-4 record and an ERA of 3.88. In his last start against the Nationals he went six innings giving up five hits and one run. 

On the other side of this matchup is the White Sox who sit with a 41-60 record overall and over the weekend they were swept against the Minnesota Twins. The White Sox are averaging 4.18 runs while their pitching is giving up 4.94 runs per game. The offense is ranked 23rd in the league while the pitching is ranked 24th. Luis Robert has hit 28 home runs and driven in 57 RBIs so far this season. In this game, if the White Sox want any chance to find success they are going to need to find a way to get Hendricks early.

Shane’s Free Pick 

Kyle Hendricks has been good this season, but at times he hasn’t gotten a ton of run support. Hendricks gave up only one run in his last start and he’s going to lockdown again in this game. I don’t expect he’s going to get a ton of run support though, and that is going to lead to this game staying under the total. Look for only 4 or 5 total runs to be scored. Back the under to cash here.
