Chi White Sox vs. Toronto, 04/18/2013 19:07
Money Line: -110 Toronto
Thursday's MLB Free Pick: Toronto Blue Jays -110
The Blue Jays will be motivated to get a split at home in this 4-game series against the White Sox and I like their chances in what might appear to be a pitchers duel between Chicago's Chris Sale and Toronto's R.A. Dickey.
After a closer look, I think Dickey and the Blue Jays have the edge on the mound. Sale looked great in his first two starts of the season, allowing just 3 earned runs on 12 hits with 14 strike outs over 14.7 innings. However, both of those starts came at home, where Sale has been a completely different pitcher. In his most recent start at Cleveland, he allowed 8 runs on 8 hits with just 3 strike outs in 4.3 innings of work. Sale just doesn't seem to be comfortable away from home. Dating back to last season, he's 2-6 with a 6.32 ERA in his last 8 road starts.
Dickey had a disappointing first two starts with the Blue Jays, but he rallied in his most recent outing against the Royals. Dickey allowed just 1 run on 5 hits over 6.3 innings of work and I'm confident that's just the beginning of several strong starts to come. I mean the guy is 14-5 against the money line in the first half of the season over the last two years.
It's also worth noting that the White Sox have won the last two games in this series. Toronto is a dominant 31-19 against the money line when playing at home off double-revenge against an opponent over the last three seasons. BET THE BLUE JAYS!
