Stephen Nover's Value Play of Month - 11-4 MLB Run
Oakland vs. Chi White Sox,
08/10/2019 19:10 EDT,
Score: 2 - 3
Money Line: +158 Chi White Sox
Reynaldo Lopez is flying below the radar screen. Tanner Roark should never be a favorite in this high range.
But the two together and you have a strong underdog value play on the White Sox.
Lopez has been one of the hotter post All-Star break pitchers going 2-1 with a 2.56 ERA in his last five starts. Lopez has 34 strikeouts in 31 2/3 innings during this span. Lopez has tamed the A's during his career, too, with a 1.50 lifetime ERA against them in two starts.
Roark is a true mediocrity with a 7-7 mark and 4.14 ERA.
Oakland has a losing record in his last seven road contests.
