Yankees vs White Sox Prediction

The Yankees are coming into this game as a slight favorite with the current betting odds. The Yankees have been playing very well recently and they are currently the best team in the MLB with the best record. They have been winning a lot of their games and losses have become very rare for them recently. They are going up against a White Sox team that has not been playing well this season and is sitting below .500 right now when they were expected to win their division. They have one of the worst bullpens in the MLB and they have blown a lot of late leads and tied games thanks to their bullpen. Both of these starters have been very good this season so the under looks like a good play here but as for a side, the Yankees have been heating up too much in their games to fade. They have been hitting the ball way better than the White Sox and even if Kopech manages to keep this game tied deep, there is always a good chance the bullpen will blow it. The best bet here is on the Yankees to keep rolling through teams and win this game.

Notable Quotes

 
"I think about the second half of '17 for him and how I'd turn on MLB Network. Every other day it felt like he was getting a homer, two-run homer, three-run homer, 2 for 3, two walks. You couldn't throw him anything." - Aaron Judge on Stanton after their win against the White Sox on Friday.
 
 
"We got torched. It was almost always we missed our location. You would see the catcher setting up the pitcher in a different place, and missing. That's what a hitter is supposed to do. They punished it." - Tony La Russa after his team’s loss against the Yankees on Friday.
