The Chicago White Sox (55-53) will look to keep the heat on in the American League Central Division leaders when they take on the Kansas City Royals (44-65) in the first game of a doubleheader on Tuesday. First pitch from Kauffman Stadium in Kansas City is set for 4:10 p.m. ET. Chicago, two games out of first place, is listed as the -125 favorite (risk $125 to win $100) on the money line in the latest White Sox vs. Royals odds from Caesars Sportsbook, while the over-under for total runs scored is eight (see up-to-date odds for every game this week on our MLB odds page).

Before making any White Sox vs. Royals picks, you NEED to check out the MLB predictions from the SportsLine Projection Model.

The SportsLine Projection Model simulates every MLB game 10,000 times, and it is 299-254 on top-rated MLB picks, returning over $800 for $100 players. This is the same model that pegged the 2021 Atlanta Braves at 10-1 as one of three best bets to win it all last season. Anybody who has followed it has seen profitable returns.

The model knows Chicago is one of the top-hitting teams in MLB, with a team batting average of .257, second-best in the American League and fifth-best in all of baseball. It hasn't been a great year for starting pitcher Lance Lynn (2-4, 5.87) isn't having a great year overall, but he's settled in during his last three starts, giving up a total of five earned runs during that span. He's a career 3.56 ERA pitcher and he went 11-6 with a 2.69 ERA in 2021. 

The model also knows since the All-Star Game, Kansas City's hitters have been on a tear and are eighth in the league with a .260 average, and are second in MLB in stolen bases with 14. Catcher Salvador Perez has been a big reason for the offensive turnaround. He has hits in six of the last eight games, including four homers and 10 RBI. He was 3-for-12 with a double and a home run at Chicago last week. He is a career .257 hitter with 26 doubles and 23 home runs in 152 games against the White Sox. 

Now, the model has set its sights on White Sox vs. Royals. We can tell you the model is going Over on the total, and it also says one side of the money line has ALL the value. You ABSOLUTELY need to see it before locking in any MLB picks.

So who wins White Sox vs. Royals? And which side of the money line has ALL the value? Join SportsLine here to find out, all from the model that has crushed its top-rated MLB money-line picks!
