Check out Justin Masterson vs. White Sox on 8/1/2013
1 month away from the football season where NFL Spreads and NCAAF picks are a regular thing. Until that time we will continue to concentrate on our MLB sports picks
<span style=”color: #004000;”>Cleveland Indians -137 2.5* FREE PLAY</span>
Justin Masterson comes into this start with a 1.27 ERA over his last three along with a 0.75 WHIP. He will face off against the White Sox ace who is also posting a solid ERA of late with a 2.28, but has a 1.27 WHIP. Masterson has flat out dominated the White Sox hitters with two complete game shutouts this year allowing 2 ER over 25 IP in three starts. They have just a .606 OPS in over 280 at bats against him. Meanwhile Chris Sale has somewhat struggled against the Indians posting a 1.55 WHIP over his last three starts and a .709 OPS in his career.
Masterson has been dominant all year at home posting a 2.63 ERA and during his day starts with a 2.06 ERA. That should benefit him because the Indians are #2 in the league in OPS during day games. The Indians are also red hot scoring 8.19 runs per 9 over their last 10 vs. LHP and are scoring more than 1.5 runs per 9 vs. LHP than the White Sox are against RHP this season. White Sox are 5-16 in their last 21 vs. RH starter while Cleveland is 35-17 in their last 52 home games. I’ll take the value we get with Masterson against Chris Sale who is nasty in his own right but is on his 3rd straight start on 4 days rest while throwing an average 117 pitches in his last two.
