Chicago White Sox vs Kansas City Royals Free Pick

Both pitchers have struggled recently, with Clevenger sporting an ERA in excess of six during his last three starts and Singer hovering just shy of a double-digit ERA over that stretch. However, Clevinger has had tremendous success against Kansas City in his career and with them being unable to score runs consistently, it would seem only fair that Clevinger be given the edge here despite being the underdogs as per the MLB betting tips by the experts.
