Orioles vs White Sox Prediction

The White Sox are coming into this game as a favorite with the current betting odds. They have been playing well recently winning their last series against the Jays and their pitching was not great in that series as they allowed many runs but they also scored a lot of runs and have been hitting the ball very well. They are going up against an Orioles team that has been very inconsistent this season but mainly has not been good on the road. Bradish is starting for the orioles here and he is still in his rookie season but he has not been pitching well in his starts and he is coming off of another awful start in his last game. Kopech is starting for the White Sox and he has been their best pitcher on the pitching staff all season with the lowest ERA and overall great performance in most of his starts. The Pitching matchup is heavily in favor of the White Sox here and with the way they have been hitting the ball recently, Bradish is bound to go through more growing pains here in his first season. The best bet here is on the White Sox to win this game.
