Reds vs. White Sox Prediction

I’m on the under here. I just think that Crochet can have another solid outing here against a Reds team that’s been solid offensively but also has a tendency to strike out a fair bit and Crochet’s been a strikeout master so far this season. On the other side, the White Sox offense has been brutal to this point and I don’t envision them scoring a ton of runs in this game. Give me the under here.
