Tampa Bay Rays vs Chicago White Sox prediction

The Rays have underachieved a bit up to this point, but they've done far more than the White Sox. I want nothing to do with the Chicago White Sox, probably the worst team in MLB. Also, while Jonathan Cannon is a decent prospect for the White Sox, he's had issues through two starts and is still getting his feet wet. This is a game the Rays should win to kind of right the ship a bit. Give me the Rays and the PL for max betting value.
