Toronto Blue Jays at Chicago White Sox Prediction

Heading into Monday night’s American League matchup between Chicago and Toronto, the Blue Jays are the slight favorite on the moneyline. I recommend rolling with Toronto to pick up the win, as Lance Lynn is making just his 2nd start of the year. In his first outing, Lynn struggled against Detroit. Look for the Blue Jays to build off their 10 run outburst vs New York with another big night at the plate.
