In yesterday’s article for my Angels-Royals Under 7.5 bet, I closed with the following words: “Just make sure you attempt to get this at 8, as I am definitely afraid of a 5-3 outcome.” Unfortunately, the line would never return to 8, and in a cruel twist of fate, the score indeed ended 5-3 in a crushing defeat. Those are the worst to dwell on, though, so let’s just advance to Sunday.

Yesterday’s Result: Angles-Royals Under 7.5 (loss)
*Each bet graded as if it were to win 1 unit
Baltimore Orioles @ Boston Red Sox | O/U: 7
1:05 p.m. ET (MLB Network)
Probable Pitchers: Dylan Bundy (0-1, 1.35 ERA) vs. Chris Sale (1-0, 1.06)
As expected, Chris Sale has been absolutely dominant to begin his second year with the Red Sox. Across his first three starts, last year’s AL Cy Young runner-up has yielded a grand total of just two runs in 17 innings of work, while also crafting together a 1.00 WHIP, .222 batting average against, and a beautiful 23/3 K/BB ratio. He’s just lights-out.
