White Sox vs Royals Betting Prediction

Chicago was able to pick up their first win of the season in their last game on Tuesday, but their offense has been brutal to open the 2024 season. Chicago has only scored 11 runs on the season, and six of those runs came in one game against Detroit. Kansas City played Baltimore very tough in their last series and probably should have won yesterday’s game, but they couldn’t hold the lead late in the game. Seth Lugo will be starting for the Royals and he pitched a gem against the Twins in his first start. I think we are going to see a lower scoring game here and I like the under in this matchup.
