Blue Jays swept by Twins

The Blue Jays are coming off being swept at home by the Twins in a surprising 3-game series. Toronto is now 46-55 overall and 19-27 on the road. Toronto is putting up 4.45 runs per game this season while allowing 4.99 per contest.

Marcus Stroman gets the start for the Blue Jays this evening. He has a 3-7 record this season through 13 starts and carries a 5.42 ERA with a 1.45 WHIP. Stroman has pitched a total of 73.0 innings this season and has 59 strikeouts and 28 walks.

White Sox 3-4 on road trip

The White Sox dropped their last two games of the 7-game West Coast road trip to go 3-4 over seven games. Chicago is now 36-66 overall and 19-29 at home. The Sox are putting up just 4.04 runs per game this year while allowing 5.38 per contest.

Reynaldo Lopez takes the mound for the White Sox this evening. He is 4-8 on the season with a 4.13 ERA and a 1.35 WHIP. Lopez has logged a total of 117.2 innings this year and has 83 strikeouts with 51 walks.

MLB Betting Trends

Toronto

The Blue Jays have won their last four Friday games but are just 1-4 in their last five road games and 0-5 in their last five against the AL Central.

Chicago

The White Sox have won six of their last seven against right-handed starters and four of their last five following a loss. They are also 6-2 in their last eight at home against a righty.

Prediction:

Chicago had some positives on the road and now they return home with one of their better pitchers on the mound. While Lopez walks more than you would like, he has been able to post some good starts against strong teams this season. Stroman hasn’t really been able to get on track this season and I think Chicago will take advantage of him at the plate and pick up the upset win at home.

 

The Pick: Chicago White Sox +130
