The Toronto Blue Jays will host the Chicago White Sox for a three-game set this week from the Rogers’ Centre.

White Sox Betting Preview

Chicago comes in at 7-15 after being swept by Tampa Bay. The White Sox fell behind early, and ended up losing to the Rays by three, 4-1. The Chicago offense is 4.72 scoring runs per game, while batting .247, with a .306 on-base percentage. The pitching staff carries a 5.47 ERA, with a 1.56 WHIP. Andrew Benintendi leads the White Sox in hitting (.284), after recording a hit in nine of the last ten games. Andrew Vaughn is first on the team in RBI (14), and he’ll look to respond to a quiet series in Tampa this week.

Lance Lynn (0-2, 7.59 ERA, 28 Ks) will get the ball for Chicago. The veteran hurler struck out seven in his last start versus Philly, but still looked vulnerable after giving up a season-high ten hits. Lynn delivered a gem in last road start against Minnesota, striking out ten in six full innings. 

Blue Jays Betting Preview

Toronto moved to 13-9 after taking two of three from New York. The Blue Jays broke the stalemate in the sixth inning, and left the Bronx with a four-run win, 5-1. The Toronto offense is scoring 4.85 runs per game, while batting .259, with a .332 on-base percentage. The pitching staff carries a 4.65 ERA, with a 1.31 WHIP. Matt Chapman recorded a pair of hits in the win over the Yankees, and he leads the Jays in batting average (.367) and RBI (17). Vlad Guerrero Jr. churned in two runs in both wins over the Yanks, and he’s second in both hitting (.346) and RBI (11)

Chris Bassitt (2-2, 5.40 ERA, 17 Ks) will get the start for Toronto. The ninth-year pitcher put together his third straight quality start versus Houston on the road last week. Bassitt struck out five in 6 ⅓ innings of shutout ball to earn his second victory of the season. 

Chicago vs Toronto Trends

Chicago is 10-12 against the spread this season, with a 12-7-3 over/under record. Toronto is 12-10 ATS this year, with a 9-11-2 O/U record.

Corey's Free Pick

Chicago has struggled out of the gate, and it’s going to be hard to trust them on the road in this series. The White Sox have dropped nine of their last eleven games, while having key pieces drop along the way, and with Lance Lynn’s age starting to result in vulnerability, I like the Blue Jays starting the series with a victory. Back Toronto for this American League battle.
