On the 11th of May, 2024, Major League Baseball fans will have their eyes set on Guaranteed Rate Field as the Cleveland Guardians go head-to-head with the Chicago White Sox. The first pitch is scheduled for 7:10 PM under a clear sky. Triston McKenzie will start for the Guardians with an ERA of 3.971, while Mike Clevinger will take the mound for the White Sox, whose ERA currently stands at 13.500.\n\nThe Guardians, who are third in the 2024 AL Central Division with a 24-15 record, display a commendable .620 winning percentage. They have won 6 out of 10 divisional games, leading the division rankings. The team has shown stable form, winning 5 of their last 10 matchups, though they are coming off two consecutive losses. While their home and away records are fairly balanced, they have shown a slight preference for night games over day games in terms of victories.\n\nConversely, the White Sox are struggling this season, positioned at 15th in the division with an 11-28 record, reflecting a poor .280 winning percentage. They are last in divisional play, with only 4 wins against 18 defeats. Despite a recent uptick leading to three straight wins, their overall performance remains subpar with notable disparities in their home and away games. They have been relatively less effective in run production and defensive play compared to the Guardians.\n\nLooking at the odds, the Cleveland Guardians are favored with a point spread of -1.5 and an over/under set at 8.0. Their money line stands at -170 indicating a stronger expectation of a win, while the money line for the Chicago White Sox is +142, hinting at their underdog status. Betting trends suggest leaning towards the Guardians might be the safer bet given their overall better statistics and form, despite their recent stumbles.
