Los Angeles Angels (Suarez) @ Baltimore Orioles (Voth)
LAA F5 3-Way (+112) / LAA -1.5 (+140) – The Orioles have won 7 in a row and are looking to complete a 4 game sweep against the Angels who are somehow 10 games under .500 even though they have two of the best baseball players in the world on their team. Orioles starting pitchers have pitched well over this stretch but I’m not expecting that to continue today with Austin Voth. He has a 7.20 ERA so far this season while pitching primarily as a reliever but pitched 3 and 4 innings has last two outings so appears to be moving to a starting role. Most pitchers see a down tick to their stuff when making this change so I’m not expecting his numbers to improve. Angels 24 year old starter Jose Suarez had a rocky April (6.35 ERA) but has pitched well since then, not allowing more than 3 runs in any of his starts since April. Today I’m expecting the talented top half of the Angels lineup to come alive and for Suarez to be the better starting pitcher and am going with LAA F5 3-way (+112) and LAA -1.5 (+140).
Detroit Tigers (Hutchison) @ Chicago White Sox (Kopech)
CWS -1.5 (+107) – Drew Hutchison is another pitcher who spent most of this year in the bullpen and is now being used as a starter. He has a 4.30 ERA this year but his 5.83 K/9 and 4.91 BB/9 are much easier to get away with as a reliever than as a starter. The White Sox offense got off to a slow start this year and has dealt with some injuries but since June 1st they have the 7th best offense in baseball (112 wRC+). They showed some of that firepower yesterday scoring 8 runs and have also averaged 6.7 runs per game over the last two weeks. Michael Kopech had a rough one last week giving up 6 ER to the Twins and hasn’t shown the same dominant numbers since he tweaked his ankle 5 starts ago and had to exit in the first inning. Despite that, I expect Kopech to bounce back this week against the Tigers and their 2nd worse (78 wRC+) offense in MLB and for the White Sox bats to stay hot and I’m going with the value of CWS -1.5 (+107).
San Francisco Giants (Wood) @ San Diego Padres (Gore)
SD F5 3-Way (+118) – MacKenzie Gore has lived up to his first round pedigree this year aside from two random ugly back to back starts against the Rockies last month. He limited the dangerous Dodgers offense to 1 run last week even while surrendering 4 free passes. Walks have been an issue this year for Gore, he has averaged 4.43 BB/9 but he has still managed to limit runs and has a 3.18 ERA. Alex Wood is 3rd on the Giants in innings pitched this year (78.1) but has a pretty mediocre 4.83 ERA. The Padres faced Wood back in May and scored 5 ER on 8 hits and knocked him out of the game after 3 innings. Today I expect the Padres to have success against Wood again and for the Padres to have the better side of the SP matchup and taking the value of the Padres to be winning after 5 innings at +118.
