Chicago White Sox -120

While the White Sox are the team that many expected to win the AL Central or compete with the Indians and Twins, that has not held true so far. However, the Royals are one team that has started to have some issues on the year and even with their improvement are not showing up at the same level as the fans would like and that will lead to the Royals losing this game as they cannot keep pace with the White Sox. Final Score Prediction, Chicago White Sox win 6-2.
