The Crosstown Classic, Windy City Showdown, Red Line Rivalry. The battle between the Chicago Cubs and the Chicago White Sox has plenty of nicknames. These two clubs have been going at it since 1906.

The Cubs and White Sox wrap up a two-game series on Wednesday night at Wrigley Field. The White Sox won the first game 5-3.

Mike Clevinger will be on the bump for the White Sox, and Javier Assad will start for the Cubs.

Our algorithm has identified an edge on an Assad player prop at BetMGM. The prognostication expects Assad to struggle against the White Sox and suggests a bet on the under.

Javier Assad Player Prop Prediction, Projection

Assad has had a very solid season for the Cubs. He spent most of the season in the bullpen and recently moved into a starting role.

He went seven innings, allowing one run and tallying two strikeouts in his last outing.

BetMGM has set his strikeout total at 3.5 with -120 juice for the over. The under is at -110. That's the best price for the under on the market.

The model predicts Assad will have 2.7 strikeouts tonight, good enough for roughly a 20% betting edge.

Remember that these algorithms work best when you wager with the same size unit for each bet.

Pick:  Javier Assad Under 3.5 Strikeouts (-110)
