Chris Sale Player Prop Prediction, Projection

On Aug. 11, Sale made his first start back from injury after sitting out for over two months.

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.

Do keep in mind that these algorithms work best when you wager with the same size unit for each individual bet.

Pick: Chris Sale Over 5.5 Strikeouts (+105)
