Toronto -1½ +150 over Chicago

7:07 PM EST. Hyun-Jin Ryu (LHP - TOR) exited his previous start with tightness in his left elbow, but he’s listed today as the starter. Regardless, this wager is not about getting behind Ryu so call it an “action” wager against Michael Kopech (RHP - CHW) and the South Side.

Put Michael Kopech on the skills-not-as-good-as-results guy warning list. Kopech’s 1.29 ERA/0.86 WHIP is mostly due to a luck-driven and unsustainable 18%/83% hit rate/strand rate combo. His skills have been bad (4.75 xERA), and he's not throwing many strikes (38% ball%). The combination of his high fly-ball rate (55%!) and his high Ball% gives him significant blowup potential. Blue Jays figure to blow this dude up.

Our Pick

Toronto -1 +150 (Risking 2 units - To Win: 3.00)
