Royals vs White Sox prediction

The White Sox have been fade material all season, as them and the Marlins are comfortably the worst teams in MLB. I also have a rule of not betting pitchers making their MLB debut, so there's no getting behind Jonathan Cannon. While Cannon is a top-15 White Sox prospect, we have no idea what to expect from him on the big stage. The White Sox have been shutout twice in their last 3 games. If that wasn't enough, Brady Singer has allowed 10 hits and 2 runs through 18.1 innings. It's early, but Singer is an early CY Young candidate. Give me the Royals and the RL for max betting value.
