The Toronto Blue Jays and the Chicago White Sox meet in MLB action from Guaranteed Rate Field on Monday

The Toronto Blue Jays will look to build on their 10-9 win over the New York Yankees last time out to snap a three-game losing streak and salvage a win from their series against New York. Bo Bichette leads the Blue Jays with 71 hits including 15 doubles, 10 home runs and 33 RBIs while Vladimir Guerrero Jr. has a team-high 17 home runs with 41 RBIs and George Springer has 13 home runs with 34 RBIs as well this season. Santiago Espinal has 64 hits with a team-high 18 doubles and a .278 batting average on the year. Jose Berrios will get the start here and is 5-2 with a 4.65 ERA and 62 strikeouts this season.

The Chicago White Sox will be out to bounce back from a 4-3 loss in Sunday night’s rubber match against Houston. Jose Abreu leads the White Sox with 9 home runs, 32 RBIs, 62 hits and 15 doubles while Luis Robert has a .294 batting average with 62 hits and 29 RBIs and Andrew Vaughn has 29 RBIs and 10 doubles this season. A.J. Pollock’s also added 22 RBIs and 11 doubles on the year for Chicago. Lance Lynn will start here and is 0-0 with a 6.23 ERA and 4 strikeouts this season.

Toronto is 16-8 in their last 24 games overall and 9-2 in their last 11 road games while the over is 6-1 in their last 7 games overall. Chicago is 4-1 in their last 5 games overall and 1-4 in their last 5 home games while the over is 7-2 in their last 9 games overall.

I get the case to be made either way in this one, but I’m looking at the over here. Berrios has struggled on the road so far this season, and Lance Lynn did have a rough outing in his debut and this Blue Jays lineup is a tough one to try to get back on track against. All and all, whether it’s the starters or the bullpens, I think this game ends up coming in with double digits when all is said and done. Give me the over here.
