Daily Sports Betting Preview 08/26/2021 – Louis Oosthuizen, CS:GO, Orioles/Angels Odds

  • Louis Oosthuizen has -150 odds to finish in the top 20 for the BMW Championship.
  • G2 Esports is the -140 favorite over Virtus.pro in their ESL Pro League 11 matchup.
  • The Los Angeles Angels are -122 on the moneyline against the Baltimore Orioles.

OWINGS MILLS, Md. – Between the BMW Championship, CS: GO ESL Pro League, and the MLB, there are plenty of betting opportunities to be had on Thursday.

BMW Championship: Louis Oosthuizen

Louis Oosthuizen has been a machine in the biggest events for golf this season. He finished T2 in the PGA Championship, second in the U.S. Open, and T3 in the British Open. The BMW Championship isn’t quite as big as the last three majors but with only 30 golfers advancing to the Tour Championship, his season is on the line.

Top 20 Finish Odds

  • Louis Oosthuizen -150

The event is expected to be a low-scoring one with a lot of birdies on the board. Since online sportsbooks are offering Oosthuizen such generous odds, he’s worth betting on. He is the first in the world in Strokes Gained: Putting this year and in a tournament like this, making putts will be crucial.

CS: GO ESL Pro League: G2 Esports vs. Virtus.pro

Those betting on eSports will find G2 Esports and Virtus.pro meeting one another on Thursday afternoon. G2 is favored in the matchup but likely not by a wide enough margin set by sportsbooks.

G2 Esports vs. Virtus.pro Moneyline Odds

  • G2 Esports -140
  • Virtus.pro +110

As one of the top CS: GO teams in the world, G2 Esports should be able to take this series against Virtus.pro, as they’ve consistently been the higher-performing team throughout the season. Upsets are always possible, but the +110 odds for Virtus.pro may not accurately describe the difference in talent between these two teams.

MLB Betting: Baltimore Orioles vs. Los Angeles Angels

Keegan Akin will be on the mound for the Baltimore Orioles which can only mean one thing; fade them. In Akin’s 18 starts this season, the Orioles are 1-17 with 15 of the losses coming by two or more runs. There are +120 odds for the Los Angeles Angels to cover the runline but to play it safe the moneyline may also still be worth it.

Orioles vs. Angels Moneyline Odds

  • Baltimore Orioles +102
  • Los Angeles Angels -122

Baltimore isn’t only bad when Akin pitches, as the team was on a 19-game losing streak before finally picking up a win on Wednesday due to a five-run eighth inning. MLB betting sites are simply not putting enough value into the fact that Akin cannot seem to win games, no matter how hard he throws.
