The Chicago White Sox and Kansas City Royals will wrap up their three-game series on Sunday afternoon. Chicago has won the first two games of this series (3-2 on Friday and 11-5 on Saturday), and they will be looking for the series sweep.
The White Sox are now 4-4 on the season after winning the first two games in Kansas City. The Royals enter this game with a record of just 3-6 after dropping two straight.
The Chicago White Sox are -185 over the Kansas City Royals in the series finale.
White Sox Odds: Sluggers Showing Up for Sox
The Chicago White Sox pounded out 21 hits in game two of the series, leading to 11 runs. Three of the bright young stars in the lineup had huge days at the plate, including a pair of White Sox who belted home runs.
Luis Robert, Yoan Moncada, and Eloy Jimenez combined to go 11-for-17 with five runs scored and six runs driven in on Saturday night. Robert (4-for-6, HR, 2R, 2RBI) and Jimenez (4-for-6, HR, 4RBI) also hit home runs in the victory.
Dylan Cease will be on the mound for Chicago in game three of the series. Cease was hit hard by the Cleveland Indians in his first start of the season, so he will be looking for a better performance in this one.
Royals Odds: Pitching Needed in KC
The Kansas City Royals have struggled to find quality starting pitching this season, and that has been a major issue. Jakob Junis will make the start for the Royals on Sunday, and this will be his first start of the season.
Junis will be activated off the injured list to make this start, and he will be staring at a red-hot lineup.
Kansas City had 15 hits in the loss on Saturday, and while they did get clubbed, they still managed to score five runs. Whit Merrifield hit his third home run of the young season in game two of the series, and he is hitting .324 on the year.
Betting Pick for White Sox vs. Royals on August 2, 2020
The Chicago White Sox have been showing off their offense in this series, and that will likely continue in the series finale. Kansas City just doesn’t have a lot of solid arms in their rotation, and that won’t work against the White Sox.
Chicago is starting to play much better, and they will leave Kansas City with a three-game sweep. The Royals are still a few years away from competing, and it has shown in this series.
Bet the Chicago White Sox -185 over the Kansas City Royals in this game.
