Chicago -1½ -105 over Texas
8:05 PM EST. Dylan Cease (RHP - CHW) has been one of the best pitchers in baseball this season, and that should continue tonight. He has allowed only four earned runs over his last 12 starts while striking out 90 in 70 innings. Cease’s 20.9% K-BB over this time is elite and he takes on a Rangers team tonight who is striking out 24% of the time versus RHP this past month.
Glenn Otto (RHP - TEX) allowed four runs on four hits, three walks and two hit batters while striking out five in five innings in a no-decision versus the Angels last Saturday. You might want to read that five more times because when you are walking and hitting Angels’ players, you should not be anywhere near a major-league mound. Otto is a wreck. He’s walked 38 batters in 72 frames with a mere 57 K’s and an alarming 1.46 WHIP. His xERA is getting progressively worse too. He’s also coming off a recent bout of COVID. Otto has shown flashes, but he’s been shellacked numerous times with five five pure disasters (not making it out of the fourth inning) in 15 starts, Otto’s control has been wobbly, which is not a good sign for a pitcher who needs to hit his spots. A cheap price to spot this is.
Chicago -1½ -105 (Risking 2.10 units - To Win: 2.00)
