Why you should back the Angels

The Angels have some advantages in run prevention behind left-handed starter Patrick Sandoval, who has not allowed an earned run in 15 innings this season. From there, the White Sox are struggling on offense, but the Angels stand on their own with an outstanding offensive start in 2022. Los Angeles leads the American League with 110 runs scored this season, and the Angels are in the top three with 28 home runs. 

They are tied for the American League with 16 stolen bases, using speed to their advantage, and the Angels are No. 2 in the AL with a 10.0 percent walk rate. The Angels generate extra-base hits at will, including 41 doubles, and Los Angeles has tremendous overall numbers on offense. In addition to leading the American League in catch-all metrics, Los Angeles leads the AL in batting average (.256), on-base percentage (.335) and slugging percentage (.431) in 2022.

Why you should back the White Sox

Chicago’s offense is off to a slow start, but there is talent on the roster. The White Sox, with a similar squad, finished in the top four of the American League in myriad categories in 2021, including hits, walks, batting average, and on-base percentage. In 2022, the White Sox have the second-fewest strikeouts in the American League, and brighter days are ahead from a run production standpoint. 

On the mound, Dylan Cease takes the ball as the team’s starter on Monday, and the 26-year-old right-hander owns a 3.27 ERA in 22 innings and four starts this season. Cease has 28 strikeouts in those 22 innings, and he led the American League in strikeout rate last season at 12.3 strikeouts per nine innings. Right-handers have trouble against Cease with a .688 OPS against him in his career, and Cease has a very solid 3.84 ERA to his name since the beginning of the 2021 season.
