White Sox vs Phillies prediction

The White Sox have been fade material all year, and that doesn't change now as the offense continues to put up zeros. Michael Soroka has also been rough through 19.1 innings, while Zack Wheeler has shown flashes of what he's truly capable of. The Phillies are also on a roll this week, and there's no reason tot think things are going to slow down. The White Sox are absolutely terrible, and I want nothing to do with them. Give me the Phillies and the RL for max betting value.
