L.A. Angels -1½ +145 over Chicago
2:10 PM EST. We played the Angels on Friday and Saturday, split the wagers and are sticking with it here. Frankly, we don’t care who is pitching for the Halos, as this is not only about wagering on the Angels to beat Chicago but also a fade against Dallas Keuchel (LHP - CHW).
Keuchel has a WHIP of 2.40 after 10 innings. In other words, dude is pitching with the bases loaded just about every inning with a fastball that tops off at 87 MPH. He’s also walked six batters with a first-pitch strike rate of 34%. Keuchel’s swing & miss rate has dipped back into single-digits. What we’re witnessing is a worsening and steady decline of his xERA, xWHIP, and overall skills. Even an elite groundball rate hasn't been able to prevent the damage. Dude can luck his way into success from time to time, but he’s a disaster waiting to happen. The Dallas Keuchel fade is back on until further notice.
L.A. Angels -1½ +145 (Risking 2 units - To Win: 2.90)
