Chicago White Sox -130 / Toronto Blue Jays +120 O/U: 9.5
The Chicago White Sox and the Toronto Blue Jays will meet up to start their MLB series on Friday.
Chicago is coming into this set off one with the Indians. The White Sox fell in two for those games 9-1 and 2-0 but managed wins 5-3 and 5-0 to even out the series.
For the Friday game, the White Sox will be sending out Dylan Covey in the start. In his 0-1 record and 4.50 ERA this year, Covey has a two strikeouts to his credit so far.
As for Toronto, they finished up against the Twins this week. The Jays lost all three of those games, 8-0, 3-0 and 9-1 for a total five-game losing streak.
Over on the Blue Jays’ side, they’re going with Clay Buchholz in the start Friday. Across an 0-2 record and a 6.57 ERA this season, Buchholz has 12 strikeouts.
The Sox are 5-0 in their last five in game one of a series and 4-1 in their last five Friday games. The Sox are 6-22 in Covey’s last 28 starts and 0-5 in his last five in game one of a series.
Meanwhile, the Jays are 0-5 in their last five overall and 0-4 in their last four after a loss. Toronto is 1-4 in their last five versus the AL Central and 5-2 in their last seven Friday games.
Covey has temporarily stepped in here for the injured Carlos Rodon, and this will be his first appearance against Buchholz. Covey logged a season-high 4.2 innings his last time up.
As for Buchholz, he hasn’t been able to complete five innings this year since his first starts.
This might not be a bad place for the Sox to sneak in a win, but I don’t like either team.
