Toronto Blue Jays vs Chicago White Sox Prediction

I’m on the Blue Jays -1.5 here. I just can’t trust the White Sox here with a lack of offense combined with a shaky starting pitcher in Mike Clevinger. The Jays haven’t had much to be excited about in their own right, but they’re still a solid team with a lot of pop in those bats when called upon. I think the Blue Jays tee off on the White Sox as they have in pretty much every meeting this season, so give me Toronto -1.5 here.

Chris’s Pick Toronto -1.5
