The model, which simulated every game on Friday’s schedule 10,000 times, is backing the White Sox (-115) in their 8:10 pm ET start. Chicago has been solid on the mound and ranks 12th in the majors in ERA (3.65). Vince Velasquez is on the hill for the White Sox and has a solid rotation of pitches. Velasquez owns a good fastball and nasty changeup to keep batters off balance. He can easily rack up strikeouts when he’s in a groove.
Shortstop Tim Anderson is a constant offensive threat in the lineup. Anderson is a tremendous athlete with great speed and bat control. The 2021 All-Star is leading the team in batting average (.333), home runs (4), on-base percentage (.369), and hits (35). On May 10, he went 3-for-4 with two RBIs.
