Chicago White Sox

This teamĀ is yet to announce their starting pitcher for this game and they are back on the field after a long time. The White Sox have made a few changes to their squad and they hope to bring out the best this season. Chicago had an exceptional season last year as they managed to clinch the AL Central Division title. The White Sox won 93 games on the season and dropped 69 in return. It was a great effort but they failed to sustain in the playoffs.

Players to watch: Tim Anderson SS (GP4, AB19, R4, H7, 2B0, 3B0, HR0, RBI1, TB7, BB0, SO5, SB0, AVG0.368, OBP0.368, SLG0.368, OPS0.737, WAR0), Eloy Jimenez LF (GP4, AB17, R0, H5, 2B0, 3B0, HR0, RBI3, TB5, BB0, SO5, SB0, AVG0.294, OBP0.294, SLG0.294, OPS0.588, WAR0).

Chicago Cubs

The Cubs will turn in Kyle Hendricks as their starting pitcher in this game. Hendricks has been strong with his performance last season and is all set to contribute his best to the Cubs. They started well in their 2021 season but failed to make it past most of their opponents. Chicago was forced to finish at the fourth spot in the NL Central Division with a 71-91 record. Overall, they are 20 games behind the .500 mark.

Players to watch: Ian Happ CF (GP148, AB465, R63, H105, 2B20, 3B1, HR25, RBI66, TB202, BB62, SO156, SB9, AVG0.226, OBP0.323, SLG0.434, OPS0.757, WAR1.6), Willson Contreras C (GP128, AB413, R61, H98, 2B20, 3B0, HR21, RBI57, TB181, BB52, SO138, SB5, AVG0.237, OBP0.34, SLG0.438, OPS0.778, WAR4.1).

Chicago White Sox vs Chicago Cubs Betting Picks

The spring training games are taken lightly, but the baseball odds are now turning towards the White Sox to win their first game. The Cubs have Hendricks on the mound as their starter, but they will get on track later in the regular season.

Score Prediction: White Sox 4, Cubs 3.
