5/24 MLB Over/Under Bet


EOG Enthusiast
Will be documenting some of my MLB plays at EOG, here's the first for 5/24

Chicago White Sox @ Arizona Diamondbacks
Jose Quintana vs Randall Delgado
UNDER 9 (-110)

The under has prevailed in the first two games of this interleague series and I believe it will be a clean sweep in that regard when the Wednesday afternoon finale is in the books.

A lot of that has to do with Jose Quintana being on the hill for the White Sox, as he's been an under bettor's best friend. In fact, he's 7-2 towards the under, while delivering steady consistent pitching as he normally does. Arizona sports a potent lineup but they're far less effective against left-handed pitching, being in the bottom third of baseball in team batting average opposite southpaws.

The key for this bet, however, might be Randall Delgado, who is making his first start since 2015. Out of the bullpen as the club's long man, Delgado has been real solid and appears to be in a groove, which could make a huge difference if it carries over into this assignment. I say it does, and even if he contributes only an average effort, it still might be enough for the under.
