In six relief appearances on the road this season, Barria has no decisions and a 2.57 ERA. He has pitched just once in a day game, working two scoreless innings.

While the teams have split two games this season, the Angels hold a commanding 52-28 advantage in the series since 2011.

Angels vs White Sox Prediction

Barria has pitched well all season, including in his one previous start, and Lynn’s home and day splits are concerning. Throw in the Angels’ dominance of the White Sox over the last decade-plus and the Halos are an enticing underdog.

Considering Ohtani has good numbers against Lynn and homered Tuesday night, let’s take a flier of him to get at least two hits at +200.

Picks:

  • Angels ML (+120)
  • Shohei Ohtani Over 2 Hits (+200)

Season Record:

  • Moneyline: 22-10 (+9.8 units)
  • Runline: 2-2 (0.0 units) 
  • Over/Under: 2-1 (+1.0 unit)
  • Overall: 26-13 (+10.8 units)
