FanDuel Sportsbook for Wednesday, June 1

New York Yankees vs. Los Angeles Angels

The Yankees hold a significant pitching edge with emerging ace Nestor Cortes on the mound. Cortes has been simply brilliant all year, making nine starts and allowing more than two earned runs in only one of them. Even then, it was just three. Contrast that with Angels starter Reid Detmers, who threw a surprising no-hitter against the Rays three starts back but has allowed eight earned runs and four home runs in his two starts since. Also note that Detmers is a southpaw, and the Yankees have an excellent 11-5 mark vs. LHP. For what it's worth, their win rate against RHP is similar, so basically they're crushing everyone. They also have an 18-7 home record. At what's essentially a pick-em price for the Yankees to have a lead after five innings playing at home with Cortes on the bump, sure, give me that.

Chicago White Sox at Toronto Blue Jays

Former reliever Michael Kopech has excelled while working as a starter this year. Much like Cortes above, Kopech has made eight starts this year and has allowed more than two earned runs in only one of them, with the one "bad" start being one in which he gave up just three earned runs. That might not be giving him enough credit, as five of those starts were scoreless outings, and the remaining starts resulted in only one, two and three earned runs. His most recent outing was his best one yet, as he went seven innings while allowing the dangerous Yankees to pick up only one hit. He has also pitched great away from home, allowing just one earned run over four road starts. Toronto starter Hyun Jin Ryu has pitched well recently, allowing just three earned runs over his last three starts. He tends to be highly inconsistent, though, and you never really know what to expect from him. Ryu is a left-hander, and the White Sox have crushed LHP over the past few seasons with mostly the same lineup. At a coin-flip price, let's go with the sensational Kopech while employing the useful White Sox vs. LHP angle.
