Bet on MLB for Monday, April 2, 2018

PUBLIC BETTING INFORMATION

The public is backing the Blue Jays today. Toronto is currently getting 66 percent of the wagers for this game as the favorite against the White Sox.

KEY INJURIES

The Jays continue to have Troy Tulowitzki on the injury report as he is out until late May due to bone spurs in his heels. Chicago has no new injuries to report.

BETTING STRATEGIES

Toronto opened its season with a four-game split at home against the Yankees. The Jays scored 15 runs over the four games while allowing 17. Justin Smoak has been leading the Toronto hitters with seven hits, two doubles, two home runs and eight RBI. Kevin Pillar added six hits and four runs over the weekend.

Chicago picked up a pair of wins at Kansas City this past weekend. The White Sox scored 18 runs over the two games while allowing 10. Chicago has been led by Matt Davidson, who has three home runs, four runs and six RBI. Tim Anderson has added two home runs as well.

These two split their six meetings last season, with the road team winning four of the six meetings. There is something to like about the White Sox. Their hitting came on late last season and I think it shows a lot of potential for 2018. With this game featuring two questionable pitchers, I think Chicago’s hitters could take advantage early and pick up the upset. I don’t trust Toronto’s hitting and pitching to be a sure thing today.
