PUBLIC BETTING: Jose Quintana will toe the rubber for the White Sox sporting a 1-2 record with a 4.00 ERA, while Jeff Samardzija takes the hill for the Cubs with his 0-3 record and 1.98 ERA.
MLB FREE PICK: Take the White Sox. According to latest MLB trends, the White Sox are 6-1 in their last seven Monday games, 5-1 in Quintana’s last six road starts versus a team with a losing record and 4-1 in his last five starts versus a team with a losing record. The Cubs, meanwhile, are just 1-4 in their last five versus a team with a losing record, 1-5 in Samaradzija’s last six starts as a home favorite and 1-9 in his last 10 starts overall. For whatever reason, the Cubs have really struggled when Samardzija takes the hill, even though he’s given them plenty of chances to win. Look for the Sox to continue that trend tonight.
