Cleveland Guardians vs Chicago White Sox Prediction

The Chicago White Sox have put together a few wins this week, but it's going to take more than that for me to show any interest. The White Sox are still one of the worst teams in baseball. Mike Clevinger is also making his second start of the year, and he was awful in his opener. Triston McKenzie is an all star caliber pitcher when he's right, and he's looked sharp in each of his last 3 starts. It looks like McKenzie is starting to turn the corner. The price is more than fair, as you can argue the Guardians should be bigger favorites. Give me the Guardians to win on Saturday.
