Los Angeles Angels starting pitcher Shohei Ohtani has an O/U of 6.5 strikeouts (per DraftKings) in tonight's matchup with the Chicago White Sox.
Something has to give in the White Sox-Angels matchup from a strikeout perspective. Chicago has the sixth-lowest strikeout percentage (20.4%) as a team, but Ohtani’s 11.9 K/9 rate would rank third if he had enough innings to qualify. The Over will be a popular play given he is coming off a season-high 13 strikeout performance, but he had less than this projected total in his previous two starts. The Angels are -190 moneyline favorites to win the game, per BettingPros consensus odds.
