|LAA (-133) @ pinnacle|
My 10* WEEKLY WIPEOUT WINNER is on the Angels.
The bottom line for this interleague matchup is that I feel that Shohei Ohtani could/should in fact be a bigger favorite in this starting pitching matchup.
Ohtani (2-1, 2.76 ERA) most recently dominated the Mariners for his second win of the season last Friday, allowing two runs, no walks and posting ten strikeouts over six innings. Over 23.2 innings of work he's posted a sharp 30/7 K/W.
Merrill Kelly (2-6, 5.16) counters for the Diamondbacks, and he most recently was shelled for five runs off six hits in what turned out to be a fortunate no-decision for the Brewers.
Over 70.1 innings Kelly has posted a respectable 62/19 K/W, but I still say that he's clearly overmatched going up against the red hot Ohtani.
The Angels offense is white hot, its off a sweep of the Royals, and it's posted 39 combined runs over its past five games.
Look for LA to open up this IL series with a convincing victory.
Lay this price with confidence.
