Yankees vs White Sox Prediction

The Yankees are coming into this game as a favorite with the current betting odds. They have been playing very well in their recent games and they currently have the best record in the MLB right now. They have been on a very big streak with a few losses here and there but they have been winning most of their games recently and they have been scoring a lot of runs in those games. Their pitching has been good in most of their games as well and they are going up against a White Sox team that has an awful bullpen and their starter is not any better in this game either as Keuchel will be starting here. Keuchel has been awful all season and with the way the Yankees have been hitting the ball recently, they will surely beat up on him in this game. The best bet here is on the Yankees to win this game.
