Pick
CHW (-136) @ Draftkings
J.A. Happ has been one of very few bright spots for the Twins so far this year with a 1.91 ERA. BUT, one of the best bets that you could have made over the last year and a half in the MLB is the Chicago White Sox against a left-handed pitcher. Dating back to the start of 2020, the White Sox are 21-1 against left-handed starting pitchers, and they are 7-1 in their last 8 at home against lefties. In fact, the White Sox ranked #1 in runs per game against lefties last year, and they’re doing it again this year with the highest scoring offense in the game and the highest batting average in the MLB against lefties.
 
-JA Happ holds a mediocre 5.05 ERA in his career against the White Sox, and he’s pitching in this game with 7 days off since his last start, which I think might cause some more “rust than rest” issues here this early in the season. Chicago is 4-0 in Dallas Keuchel’s last 4 starts as a home favorite and 6-1 in his last 7 as a favorite overall, so I think they will get out to an early lead and hold this one with a better bullpen than Minnesota’s.

FAQs

What does ‘Star Rating’ mean?
Star Rating is the number of units the handicapper is risking on the bet. Therefore, if the Star Rating is 7.0, it is a 7-unit pick. On plus odds picks, the handicapper is risking their Star Rating unit amount. On negative odds picks, the handicapper is betting enough to win their Star Rating unit amount.
