Alright, it’s time to make some money….Here are my pick for Monday Aug 5th:
Chicago White Sox ML -125
Pitching matchup is key
Giolito (Chicago white Sox) started off very shaky, and remained winless since June 30. He let one run and struck out 9 over 7 innings against the New York Mets last Wednesday. Giolito (1st time All-Star) has been dominant on the road (6-2, 2.76 ERA). He went 0-3 with a 5.65 ERA in 5 turns.
Jeimer Candelario (4-for-11, 3 walks) has experienced some minor success versus Giolito, who is 3-2 with a 5.01 ERA in 6 career starts vs the Detroit Tigers.
Can’t wait to see how this match up stacks up!
