Sport: MLB | Star Rating: 6.0 Evaluation: Loss (-1056)
Pick
LAA (-176) @ pinnacle

The set-up: After yesterday's loss and considering the talent discrepancy on the mound, I'm going to lay the price for what I expect to be a completely lop-sided victory for the home side once it's all said and done. Arizona hands the ball to Caleb Smith (0-0, 3.00 ERA) who makes his second start for the D-Back after coming over from Miami. Smith gave up one run over three innings in his debut on Friday, but I think he'll predictably struggle here with the larger work load and in this difficult road venue.

The pick: Dylan Bundy counters for the Angels and he's 5-2 with a 2.48 ERA overall. Bundy though enters on top form currently, going 2-0 with a 2.29 ERA over his last rhee outings. Also interesting to note that the Angels are 6-3 in his starts, compared to just 14-26 in all other games. This is a great indicator and I expect this strong trend of domination to continue in this favorable matchup. Lay the price with confidence.

This is a 6* DESTRUCTION on the LA Angels.

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.
