Mariners at White Sox ML Prediction 4/13/22

Ray gets a huge check-mark in the pitching match-up, large enough for us to throw out other handicapping factors. Yes, Seattle is struggling a bit to score runs, but Keuchel might be just the remedy. And the Mariners posted a pretty good record against lefties last year. We like Seattle here at the pick 'em price.
