Chicago White Sox vs Cleveland Guardians Prediction

The Chicago White Sox are still a team I'm looking to fade, as they're the worst team in baseball. I also hate bullpen games, and that's what the White Sox are doing here. You have to rely on so many arms to get you over the finish line. Despite some hiccups here and there, the Cleveland Guardians are still one of the most profitable teams for MLB bettors this season. Ben Lively is also a trustworthy pitcher, and he's been even better at home. Give me the Guardians to win game 3 against the White Sox.
