Chicago vs Kansas City MLB Prediction

The Royals are fading fast. After two straight World Series it looks like they will be taking this year off from the playoffs. Right now, the White Sox are the better team and they have the better starting pitcher going. Taking the Chicago White Sox on the money line as my only bet on the game.

White Sox vs Royals Prediction:
White Sox 5 – Royals 3
