Los Angeles Dodgers at Chicago White Sox Prediction

Thursday’s showdown between Los Angeles and Chicago features an outstanding pitching matchup between Tyler Anderson and Dylan Cease. Even though the Dodgers picked up a win in last night’s contest, the offense has been struggling of late. Look for this to be another low-scoring game. I recommend taking the over at 8.5 runs.
