L.A. Angels -1½ +173 over 

4:10 PM EST. Triston McKenzie (RHP - CLE) is coming off a one-hit performance against the Tigers in which he was perfect through 23 outs. That breakthrough performance has put the lanky rookie on the radar. As impressive as any near-perfect outing is, McKenzie, benefited greatly from a huge early lead that took much of the in-game pressure off of his plate. The Baseball Team were up 11-0 after three innings that night and McKenzie was never under the gun to get a big out. There is much to like in the rookie's profile, but consistency has been an issue with him, as it often is with young hurlers. Perhaps McKenzie picks up right where he left off, but we're willing to bet that will not likely be the case.

The Angels will answer with a rookie of their own in Reid Detmers (LHP - LAA), who will make his fourth career start. Detmers is a former 10th overall pick from 2020. When a dude makes it to the bigs that quickly after being drafted, it's worth noting. Detmers made 12 starts in Double-A before making one at Triple-A and then getting the call to the show. Dude's strikeout rate while with the Trash Pandas was an outstanding 16.17 K/9 and he posted a 13.5 K/9 mark in his one start in Salt Lake. Detmers appeared to get his legs underneath him last time out, posting his best start for the Angels thus far, giving up one run on three hits against an Astros lineup that is not easy to put away. While this play is primarily a fade on McKenzie coming off that near-flawless start, the Halos appear to be fine fodder to back that wager up.
