Chicago White Sox vs Toronto Blue Jays Predictions & Picks

Alek Manoah and the Toronto Blue Jays, who are currently sitting in 4th place in the AL East, will host the Chicago White Sox, who are 1st in AL Central at Rogers Centre on Monday. Sports betting sites have struggled to separate those two teams, in what is expected to be a close affair, even if when these two teams met in June, the White Sox prevailed two games out of three. Lance Lynn is going to be for the Blue Jays, while Alex Manoah will represent Chicago.

Tip Reasoning

  • White Sox are in 1st place in the American League Central, with a record of 72-52
  • Lance Lynn, who is 10-3 with a 2.31 ERA, is the best pitcher for Chicago
  • Toronto pitching has improved over the season, and they now have an ERA of 3.93, which ranks in 11th place in the league

Toronto are known for their home run hitting ability and have hit 186 home runs, which is the best overall in baseball

The White Sox have had a very good season so far and, in fact, have been one of the best teams in the MLB. They are currently in 1st place in the American League Central, with a record of 72-52 and a lead over the Indians of 10.5 games. Despite that, they are coming into this match after a disappointing 8-4 defeat against Tampa on Saturday, in which Dallas Keuchel was rather poor (5 innings and allowed 6 earned runs). Their best pitcher so far has been Lance Lynn, who is 10-3 with a 2.31 ERA. Last time seen was against the Athletics where he went 4 innings, and 1 earned run, with The Sox that prevailed for 3-1 on that occasion. Chicago pitching has been impressive with an ERA of 3.64 which is the 6th best in the majors. They have also done well in offense tough as they are scoring 4.98 runs per game on average and rank 6th best in the MLB.

The Blue Jays can also be pretty satisfied with their season so far. They are sitting in 4th place in the American League East and delivered a solid performance on Saturday with Hyun Jin Ryu, with a 3-0 win over the Tigers. Today they will field Alek Manoah, who has had a solid season, despite a disappointment last time he played against the Nationals. Pitching has improved over the season, and they now have an ERA of 3.93, which ranks in 11th place in the league. However, it is the offence their strongest asset as they are currently scoring 5.12 runs per game, ranking 4th in baseball.

As we can see from the odds, this is likely to be a rather close affair between two very good teams. Toronto, however, are known for their home run hitting ability and have hit 186 home runs, which is the best overall in baseball. Lance Lynn is the better pitcher, and it won’t be easy tonight for the Blue Jays, but the home advantage has to be considered, and the value in backing Toronto to edge it is significant.

Game Totals Prediction

We expect Toronto to score some runs against Lynn, but it is not going to be a massive number. The total, in our opinion, is pretty high despite we have two of the best offensive teams going head to head tonight. It will be close to the line, but the value is on the under in our opinion, with Toronto that would have to ride Manoah as much as they can.
