Toronto Blue Jays vs. Chicago White Sox

MLB Baseball: Friday, May 17th 2019 6:10 PM EST TIME

The Toronto Blue Jays are looking to get some revenge as they come into this game ready to take on the Chicago White Sox in game 2 of the series. For the White Sox, they have already beaten down on the Blue Jays winning two of three in their latest series.

Blue Jays Notes

The Toronto Blue Jays are on the struggle bus and it seems they are not getting off anytime soon. The Jays enter this new series with losing three of the past four games with coming off a series loss against the San Francisco Giants. They have now lost five series in a row as their only series wins within the past month have been against the Oakland Athletics. Unfortunately for the Jays, they are not taking on the A’s Friday as they have another date with the White Sox

However, there is some positive news for the Jays. They are sending out Aaron Sanchez on Friday night who has increased his durability this season. The right-hander has worked six innings or more in his last two starts, marking the first time this season that he has gone that deep in back-to-back starts.

White Sox Notes

As for the Chicago White Sox, if they want to make some noise in the AL Central right now would be a good time as the Cleveland Indians are having an average start to the season. The White Sox come into this game with winning five of their past eight games with taking three of five from the Indians. Can the White Sox now stay red-hot against the Blue Jays? Toronto has owned the White Sox in Chicago as of late too…

For the White Sox they will be sending out Ivan Nova who had an 8.33 ERA as of May 1, but over his last two starts against the Indians and Blue Jays, it has dropped to 6.29. Nova has yielded two runs over 13 innings, winning both outings after the team lost his first five starts.

The Bottom Line What to bet on this game.

Full-Game Side Bet
Rating:

Time for a little revenge on Friday. Both pitchers come into this game with some momentum but I have to lean with the Blue Jays as they historical do so much better on the road against the Sox. The Blue Jays are 4-1 in the last 5 meetings in Chicago.

Prediction: Blue Jays ML

Full-Game Total Pick
Rating:

Even though I mentioned above that both pitchers have momentum and should play well on Friday, the Total is way too low for my likings. Take the Over here as it is 5-1 in the last 6 meetings in Chicago.

Prediction: OVER
