The White Sox are 17-8 in their last 25 Monday games and 0-7 in Noesis last 7 starts. The Blue Jays are 7-3 in their last 10 games as a favorite and 5-2 in Hutchisons last 7 home starts. The White Sox are 8-3 in the last 11 meetings in Toronto and 5-1 in the last 6 meetings overall.
I'm not sure we can trust either team in their current slump. So, I like the value of the White Sox and the plus money, as this game can really go either way.
