Chicago White Sox vs. Toronto Blue Jays Monday Free Pick: The Toronto Blue Jays have really struggled out of the gates this season, and they have to be feeling the pressure of a supposedly great team that isn’t playing up to its potential. They’ll begin a four-game series on Monday night against the Chicago White Sox at the Rogers Centre in Toronto, Ontario, Canada. Toronto is a -134 favorite on the MLB odds for this showdown, in which the first pitch takes place at 7:07 p.m. ET.

We just aren’t all that sure about the Blue Jays right now. They’ve got a good team on paper, but with the whole left side of the infield now on the disabled list, Colby Rasmus batting .216, and Jose Bautista batting right at the Mendoza Line, the offense suddenly doesn’t look all that sharp. Mark Buehrle is going to get the ball today for the Jays, and he has a 10.24 ERA through two starts on the campaign. Now, he has to go up against his old team. The White Sox haven’t hit the ball that well against left-handed pitching of late, losing four of their last five starts against southpaws, but we really think that Buehrle’s time as an effective pitcher in this league very well could be done. Chicago has won four straight road starts with tonight’s pitcher, Gavin Floyd on the mound, and the team is 7-1 in Floyd’s last eight starts against teams with a losing record. We want the Pale Hose and the plus odds on our side tonight for sure. White Sox vs. Blue Jays Free Pick for April 15th: Back the Chicago White Sox +126
