The St. Louis Cardinals start a three-game interleague series with the Chicago White Sox on Friday night.
Both teams have struggled after beginning the season with high expectations. Both teams also find themselves 15 games below .500 and hoping to gain some momentum before the All-Star Break.
Tonight, the White Sox will throw Dylan Cease against the Cardinals' Jordan Montgomery.
Action Network's MLB handicapper, Sean Koerner, has identified a player prop worth betting at BetMGM as he's expecting Montgomery to struggle to get strikeouts against the White Sox.
Our models consider quantitative and qualitative factors for every angle of the game — including rest, matchups, stylistic differences, lingering injuries, history and more — to come up with a fair value line for every MLB player prop on the market.
Jordan Montgomery Player Prop Prediction, Projection
Montgomery has been a mainstay in MLB since 2017.
He's in his second season with the Cardinals and is sporting a 3.28 ERA through 17 starts.
Montgomery is coming off one of his best starts of the season in which he went 6 2/3 innings and gave up just two hits and no earned runs against the Yankees, his former team.
Koerner's model indicates Montgomery's strikeout total for Cardinals vs. White Sox is way too high. BetMGM has set his strikeout total at 5.5, with +110 to the over and -145 to the under.
Do keep in mind that these algorithms work best when you wager with the same size unit for each individual bet.
