3 units on Chicago +114 (moneyline) (risk 3 to return 3) RESULT: LOSS
The Blue Jays offense has staggered the entire season, and recently those struggles have grown. The Jays have only plated 25 runs in their last 10 games, good for just 2.5 rpg. It is hard to find the win column like that. The result is a 2-8 mark over the last ten games. They have gone 15 games without topping the 5 run mark and are currently one of the worst teams in baseball against LHP at 1-5. Mark Buehrle had a horrible first outing, so his 5.65 ERA on the season is a bit distorted. He has pitched to a 3.67 ERA since. Shaun Marcum has pitched well for the most part, but the Jays can't score. They have lost three of his five starts, mainly because they produced just 4 total runs in the losses. It's hard to back a team that has been in a prolonged offensive slump, vs a top flight LHP, which has magnified the Jays struggles. We will back the White Sox to grab one on the road.
