Online MLB Betting Odds:
New York Yankees
The Yanks charge into this Monday night pairing sporting a 68-42 record that ranks them 2nd in the AL East. As aforementioned, New York is currently 9 ½ games behind their longtime rivals. On top of that, the club is riding a pretty nasty losing streak into tonight’s road game. However, despite their current slump, there’s no denying this is one of the best teams in the MLB. As such, the Yankees shouldn’t have too hard of a time bouncing back. Especially against a weaker Chicago team. To help deliver the rebound on the road this evening, New York will be starting Lance Lynn against the Sox. Lynn is 7-8 on the year and brings a 4.89 ERA and a 1.61 WHIP to the table.
Players to Watch: Aaron Judge (26 HR, 61 RBI, .285 BA), Giancarlo Stanton (25 HR, 67 RBI, .280 BA), and Aaron Hicks (18 HR, 49 RBI, .248 BA).
Chicago White Sox
The White Sox enter tonight’s pairing with a disappointing 41-70 record. Unsurprisingly, that losing record places them a whopping 20 ½ games from the division leading Cleveland Indians. Notwithstanding those hardships, the Sox actually enter riding a 4-game winning streak. To keep the good times rolling, Chicago will be sending Dylan Covey to the mound tonight. Covey is 4-7 on the season and will be looking to improve on his 5.57 ERA and his 1.57 WHIP.
Players to Watch: Jose Abreu (19 HR, 63 RBI, .270 BA), Tim Anderson (14 HR, 46 RBI, .246 BA), and Daniel Palka (17 HR, 44 RBI, .236 BA).
