MLB Sports Handicappers Preview LA Angels (46-39) at Chi. White Sox (43-38)

As the All-star break nears our winning sports picks will continue as we always look forward to the second half of the season where major adjustments are required to win. Today’s marquee pitching match-up has to be Weaver vs. Peavy. Peavy got off to a slow start but has come on strong going 2 – 1 with an ERA of 1.23 over his last three starts. Over Peavy’s last 5 starts he has allowed runs of just 3, 0 , 0, 2 and 2. Chicago continues their last of the first half run to make this a three horse race with Minnesota and the Detroit Tigers. However, Peavy and the White Sox might not be so happy to see the Angels or Weaver. Peavy has faced LA twice in his career once in 2006 losing that game and once already this season allowing 6 runs on 8 hits in a 5 – 6 loss to the Angels.


Weaver will take the mound for the LA Angels and he has been red hot going 2 – 0 with an ERA of 0.86 over his last three starts. Weaver has dominated the White Sox throughout his career going 5 – 0 dating back to 2007. In those 5 starts he has 3 shutouts and allowed just 1 run in the other two games. Even more telling over Weaver’s last 3 starts is his strikeout to walks ratio where he has 28 strikeouts and just 3 walks. In this game we have to give the edge to the LA Angles and Weaver.
