Baltimore Orioles at Chicago White Sox Prediction

In Sunday’s AL matchup between Baltimore and Chicago, the White Sox are the heavy favorite with Dylan Cease on the mound. Even though Cease isn’t in need of much run support, I expect a good showing at the plate for the White Sox. I like Chicago on the runline.
