New York Yankees at Chicago White Sox Prediction

Given that the White Sox have Dylan Cease on the mound and that New York’s Luis Gil is making his season debut, the odds are in favor of Chicago at -130. Even though New York features a dangerous lineup, I recommend taking the White Sox to pick up the home win. In his 6 appearances, Cease has one of the lowest FIP ratings among starting pitchers at just 1.98. Look for him to keep the Yankees’ batters in check.
