Angels and White Sox Clash in Chicago for Saturday FS1 Action

Los Angeles Angels vs. Chicago White Sox Betting Information

On the whole, the Los Angles Angels have been one of the most frustrating brands with the MLB betting odds.  It starts with the fact that the Angels have one of the greatest players ever.  Mike Trout is a 9-time American League All-Star and 3-time AL Most Valuable Player.  And then Shohei Ohtani was the 2021 American League Most Valuable Player awardee.  Additionally, manager Joe Maddon has the reputation of being a miracle worker and genius.  Los Angeles has only one playoff appearance in the past 11 years with all of these advantages.

CashBet Wagering Analysis – How Gamblers See the Matchup

To begin with, much of the gambling public sees the Angels as a broken sportsbook public trust.  There have been too many seasons of great hype and woeful results.  Fundamentally the Angels remain weak on the mound.  Until Los Angeles develops reliable pitching, they will continue to be a risky bet on most days.  Additionally, Joe Maddon has failed to move the needle as expected.  The betting public has been burned too many times by Los Angeles.  Only consistent success can change that negative perception.

It is true that the White Sox have not met betting on baseball expectations in the early going of the 2022 campaign.  But gamblers can point to the most recent two seasons of success as evidence of better days ahead.  In the 2021 season, the White Sox were one of the most complete teams in baseball.  Also, Chicago manager Tony LaRussa is already in the Hall of Fame.  Gamblers see Chicago as a strong stock that has been temporarily underperforming.

Promising or False Start by the Angels?

Late on, the Angels have won seven of their last ten games.  Only one of their previous six tilts has gone over the total.  Los Angeles is 11-7 and 7-9-2 over the total on the season.  The Angels are 5-2 in away games this season.  Overall, LA ranks 5th for run production and 19th for earned run average.  The MLB betting line’s question is if the Angels are here to stay or ready to fade?

Pale Hose Yet to Find the Gear

Of major concern for the baseball betting community is a terrible start by the White Sox.  Chicago has dropped eight of their most recent ten games.  Five of their last eight games went over the total.  As a result, the White Sox are 6-10 with 8-8 over and under the total.  Chicago ranks an abysmal 27th in MLB for run production and 22nd for earned run average.

Angels vs. White Sox – Who Has the Pitching Advantage? 

Los Angeles is expected to start lefty Jose Suarez.  So far, Suarez has a record of 0-1 in three starts with a 5.54 earned run average and WHIP of 1.54 WHIP.  In 2021, Suarez was 8-8 with a 3.75 earned run average and WHIP of 1.23.  Of great concern is that the Angels rank 26th for bullpen earned run average.  Los Angeles has blown five saves in eight opportunities.

Correlate that Chicago is expected to start righty Lucas Giolito.  He has no record with a 1.13 earned run average and 1.25 WHIP in two starts.  Giolito has 15 strikeouts in eight innings on the hill.  In a similar way to the Angels, the White Sox bullpen ranks 22nd for earned run average.  Chicago has blown four saves in nine opportunities.
