White Sox vs Angels Betting Pick
This game will be played at Angel Stadium at 9:38 PM ET on Wednesday, June 29, 2022.
Why Bet The Angels:
✅ The Halos will give Shohei Ohtani a nod, and the two-way superstar has been terrific on the mound as of late. Over his previous three starts, Ohtani has gone 3-0 while surrendering only one earned run on nine hits across 21 innings of work. Last Wednesday, the 27-year-old right-hander struck out 13 through eight scoreless innings in a 5-0 home victory over the Kansas City Royals.
✅ The White Sox are way more dangerous when hitting the lefties and could easily struggle against Shohei Ohtani. They own a 128 OPS+ against the left-handed pitchers and a poor 86 OPS+ versus the right-handed pitchers in 2022. Also, the current White Sox are hitless in eight at-bats against Ohtani.
✅ Chicago will start Michael Kopech, who’ll try to avoid his third consecutive loss. Kopech has struggled mightily over his previous two starts, allowing four earned runs in a 4-3 defeat at Houston and three earned runs in a 4-1 loss to Baltimore. Last Friday, Kopech issued four free passes across six frames of work against the Orioles. He holds a pedestrian 5.23 ERA and 5.50 FIP in June.
Chicago White Sox
The White Sox returned to losing ways last Monday, suffering a narrow 4-3 defeat at Angel Stadium. It was their fifth loss in the last six outings, and the Chi Sox dropped to 34-38 on the season. They sat at the third spot in the AL Central, 3.5 games behind Cleveland and 6.5 games behind Minnesota. The White Sox have scored only 15 runs in that six-game stretch while slashing a miserable .219/.270/.301.
Los Angeles Angels
The Angels improved their record to 36-40 for the season following Monday’s victory over the White Sox. They were sitting at the third spot in the AL West, one game behind Texas and 11 behind Houston. The Halos have scored 17 runs over their previous five outings (3-2 record) while hitting .256/.354/.397 across 156 at-bats. Mike Trout has 12 hits and six home runs in his last 13 games and 47 at-bats.
