Shane’s Free Pick
The White Sox are going to really struggle to get going here. Gerrit Cole has been lights out, especially as of late and he’s going to lockdown in this game. Cease in his last start gave up seven runs and he’s going to be dominated in this game. The Yankees will score eight or nine runs total here, and this is going to be a blowout victory. Back the Yankees on the run line to cash.
