The New York Yankees (24-8) seek to clinch a road series win against the Chicago White Sox (15-16) Saturday as they took the first 2 games of this 4-game set at Guaranteed Rate Field. First pitch is set for 7:10 p.m. ET. Let's analyze Tipico Sportsbook's lines around the Yankees vs. White Soxodds with MLB picks and predictions.

Season series: Yankees 2-0

The Yankees are 17-2 in their last 19 games, including a current 5-game win streak. They hold a 4½-game lead in the AL East.

The White Sox had won 7 of their last 8 games before the Yankees came to town. Chicago is tied for second place in the AL Central, trailing the Minnesota Twins by 3 games.

Yankees at White Sox projected starters

LHP Jordan Montgomery vs. LHP Dallas Keuchel

Montgomery (0-1, 2.90 ERA) makes his 7th start. He has a 0.94 WHIP, 1.5 BB/9 and 7.3 K/9 through 31 IP.

  • Despite how well he has pitched this season, the Yankees are only 2-4 when Montgomery starts.
  • He allowed 2 runs in each of his last 3 starts, which lasted 5 2/3, 5 and 6 innings, respectively.

Keuchel (2-3, 6.86 ERA) makes his 6th start. He has a 2.10 WHIP, 5.1 BB/9 and 5.6 K/9 through 21 IP.

  • Keuchel is coming off his best start of the year. He went 6 innings, allowing 2 runs on 8 hits with 1 walk and 5 strikeouts in a 3-2 win at the Boston Red Sox Sunday.
  • His numbers look bad this season but are skewed by a 1-inning start in which he allowed 10 runs (7 earned). Take out that start and his ERA is 4.05.

Yankees at White Sox picks and predictions

Prediction

Yankees 5, White Sox 2

Money line

The Yankees have been basically unstoppable for almost a month. As mentioned, they have won 5 straight and are 17-2 in their last 19 games. They won the first 2 games of the series 15-7 and 10-4.

Montgomery has been great this season for New York and Keuchel has been underwhelming for Chicago.

The White Sox have allowed 10 or more runs in 3 of their last 4 games, but before that they had allowed only 9 total runs in a 6-game winning streak.

Run line/Against the spread

The Yankees are 18-14 ATS this season. They covered the spread in their last 3 games but had a streak of 5 straight failing to do so. Twelve of their last 17 wins have been by at least 2 runs.

The Sox are 14-17 ATS. Before failing to cover the spread in either of the first 2 games of this series, they went 8-2 ATS.

However, Montgomery isn't likely going to allow more than 2 runs and Keuchel has only been average this season outside of one terrible start.

TAKE YANKEES -1.5 (-108).

Over/Under

The first 2 games of the series had 22 and 14 runs.

Three of Keuchel's 5 starts have had at least 9 runs.

None of Montgomery's 6 starts have had 9 or more runs.

Despite the last 2 games, the Yankees have had 10 of their last 19 games reach totals of 9 or more runs.

LEAN UNDER 9.5 (-125).
