Preview

The Toronto Blue Jays and the Chicago White Sox meet again to play a 3-game series at the Guaranteed Rate Field. The Blue Jays lost their last series against the Yankees and the White Sox lost vs Astros. Toronto are 3-0 against the White Sox this season.

Chicago White Sox

The White Sox get here with a 31-33 record and have won 4 of their last 6 games. The team is averaging 4.17 runs per game and allowing 4.78 runs. Jose Abreu leads with 9 home runs and 32 RBI while Luis Robert is batting for .294 avg.

Dylan Cease leads the team with a 2.91 ERA, 97 strikeouts and 5 wins recorded for the White Sox.

Probable Pitcher:

Lance Lynn (0-0, 6.23 ERA) will be on the mound for the White Sox in the 1st game of the series. Lynn took a no-decision in Monday's 9-5 win over the Tigers, allowing three runs on ten hits while striking out four. He is 1-3 with an ERA of 4.21 and 46 strikeouts in 9 appearances versus the Blue Jays in his career.

Toronto Blue Jays

The Blue Jays get here with a 38-28 record and have lost 3 of their last 5 games. The team is averaging 4.5 runs while allowing 4.2 runs per game. Vladimir Guerrero Jr leads the team with .267 ERA, 41 RBI and 17 home runs. 

Alek Manoah leads the team with a 2.00 ERA and 73 strikeouts recording 8 wins for the Jays.

Probable Pitcher:

Jose Berrios (5-2, 4.65 ERA) will be on the mound for the Blue Jays in the 1st game of the series. In a no-decision against the Orioles on Wednesday, Berrios allowed three runs on three hits while striking out eight batters in seven innings. He has a record of 12-5 with an ERA of 3.12 and 135 strikeouts in 21 appearances versus the White Sox in his career.

BETTING TRENDS

Toronto are 9-2 SU in their last 11 games on the road.

The total has gone UNDER in 4 of Toronto's last 5 games when playing on the road against Chi White Sox.

The total has gone OVER in 7 of Chi White Sox's last 10 games.

Chi White Sox are 4-2 SU in their last 6 games.

Prediction

The White Sox have struggled at home this season and they're 9-17 as underdogs. Lance Lynn will have his 2nd start this season and allowed 3 runs in the last one. The Blue Jays have been really good on the road as they have won 9 of their last 11 games away. Jose Berrios has been effective lately and with the Blue Jays dominating the White Sox this season I think they win again. Take the Blue Jays.   

PICK: Blue Jays ML (-135)
