In his return, Sale went four and two-thirds innings, allowing one earned run and tallying seven strikeouts.
BetMGM has set his strikeout total at 5.5 with +105 on the over, while the under is juiced at -135. That's the best price on the over in the market.
The model predicts Sale will have 6.8 strikeouts tonight, good enough for over a 15% betting edge.
