Merrill Kelly UNDER 4.5 Ks -106 2 units to win 1.89 units: Kelly has played way over his potential this year and he’s instore for a regression game. He has started 4 games and won 3 of them posting two 7 strikeout games. He also has a 100% LOB% with one of the worst K% and K/9 for pitchers with over 20 innings pitched. Kelly is going up against the Athletics that have been great this year and look to build on their success again tonight. The As have been giving up a decent amount of Ks but also have a high BB% and one of the top HR teams in the league. Kelly has been one of the top pitchers at preventing BBs at only about 2.9% but he has been giving up a little over 1 HR per 9 innings, which is one of the worst in the league. If the As get out to a hot start Kelly is not going to have a fun time tonight. Kelly only has a 7.5 K/9 and a 21% K%. He is an underdog tonight as well which never bodes well for the over.
