Chicago White Sox at Baltimore Orioles Prediction

Heading into Wednesday’s matchup between Chicago and Baltimore, the over-under line is set at 8.5 runs. Look for this to be a low-scoring game in which each starting pitcher has a strong outing. Even though Lucas Giolito was shelled in his last outing, I expect a bounce-back performance vs Baltimore. On the other side, Spenser Watkins is facing a White Sox lineup that has been inconsistent all season long.
