MLB: Star-studded pitching lineup for Monday
2010-06-28

Monday starts the first-day of post-Interleague action in Major League Baseball, as the American & National leagues wrapped up their head-to-head play for 2010 on Sunday. Be it coincidence or not, managers seem to have saved some of their top pitchers for their league/division counterparts, as many top hurlers, and several others that are hot of late, are scheduled to go on Monday night. Let’s take a look at those games and see if we can’t uncover some edges. Get all of the key betting info for every game on the GAME MATCHUPS page of Sportsbook.com.

(901) NY METS (DICKEY) at (902) FLORIDA (NOLASCO) 7:10 PM - ** Game played in San Juan, PR

Knuckleballer R.A. Dickey has been a major surprise for the Mets this season since joining the rotation on May 19th and comes into Monday’s game versus Florida with a 6-0 won-lost mark. His last three starts have been particularly strong, as he allowed just three earned runs in 21 innings in those contests. In the start prior to that, he yielded three runs to these same Marlins in 6-1/3 innings and got the win. Dickey’s WHIP on the season is a very-respectable 1.295 and he opened as a -110 favorite at Sportsbook.com for Monday’s game, which incidentally, is being played in San Juan, Puerto Rico.

Dickey will be opposed by Ricky Nolasco, who has won just two of his last seven starts, allowing 28 earned runs in 37 innings during that stretch.

(903) PHILADELPHIA (KENDRICK) at (904) CINCINNATI (CUETO) 7:10 PM

Johnny Cueto and the N.L. Central-leading Reds host the Phillies for three games starting on Monday night. Cincinnati has won nine of its L11 games with Cueto getting the ball, and he has allowed just one run in his last two starts covering 12-1/3 innings. He will be looking to erase the memories of the worst start of his pitching career, which came last July at Philadelphia, when he allowed nine runs in two-thirds of an inning to the Phillies.

Kyle Kendrick gets the start for the Phillies, and has won three straight starts. However, with a 5.62 ERA in those outings, he has his offense to thank. Philadelphia has given him 24 runs of support during that span.

(905) WASHINGTON (STRASBURG) at (906) ATLANTA (HUDSON) 7:10 PM

The pitching matchup of the night pits rookie Stephen Strasburg of the Nationals versus Tim Hudson and the Braves. It will be Strasburg’s fifth start of his career, and the first one in which he is not a heavy favorite. In fact, it is the Braves that opened as -120 home favorites.

Strasburg has been dominant in his first four starts, striking out 41 hitters in 25-1/3 innings. His ERA is a miniscule 1.78 with a WHIP of 0.947. Still, the Nats are just 2-2 in his four starts, losing the two most recent in interleague play.

Hudson has been good all season and is rightfully the favorite in this matchup. He boasts a 7-3 mark with a WHIP of 1.168 and ERA of 2.54. Those numbers are even better at home (4-1, 1.010, 1.87), following a pattern he has enjoyed his entire career…HUDSON is 115-50 (+33.7 Units) against the money line in home games.

(911) ARIZONA (HAREN) at (912) ST LOUIS (CARPENTER) 8:15 PM

Aces collide in St. Louis on Monday night when Chris Carpenter and the Cardinals host Dan Haren and the Diamondbacks. Haren isn’t enjoying the success he has in recent years but his WHIP is still a respectable 1.311 and his record is 7-6, despite pitching for one of the National League’s worst teams. Arizona is 13-3 OVER the total in his 16 starts, a sign of how poorly the bullpen is supporting Haren in his outings.

Carpenter has been as solid as ever this season, with a 9-1 record, 1.131 WHIP, and 2.63 ERA in 16 starts. He has struck out 95 hitters in just shy of 110 innings. In his last outing, he held the Jays scoreless in eight innings in Toronto. The Cardinals are a -180 favorite for this contest, setting up Carpenter for what has been an incredibly productive trend:

* CARPENTER is 15-1 (+13.0 Units) against the money line as a favorite of -175 to -250 over the last 2 seasons. (Team's Record) The average score was CARPENTER 4.8, OPPONENT 1.9 - (Rating = 0*)

(913) COLORADO (JIMENEZ) at (914) SAN DIEGO (CORREIA) 10:05 PM

The league’s best pitcher in 2010, Ubaldo Jimenez, takes the hill tonight for the Rockies in what is a big game for his team. Colorado trails the Padres by 6-games in the N.L. West and has a chance to bite into that when the teams start a 3-game set on Monday. Jimenez will be opposed by San Diego’s Kevin Correia and pitches as a -160 favorite, according to Sportsbook.com.

Jimenez has been nothing short of dominant this season but was hit hard in his last outing by the Red Sox, allowing a season-high six runs in 5-2/3 innings. His ERA for 2010 remains a paltry 1.60, and perhaps most importantly, the Rockies are 14-1 in his 15 starts, including 10-0 when his team is coming off a loss. Jimenez has won four straight decisions over the Padres dating back to August ’08, allowing eight runs in 27 innings.

(917) TORONTO (ROMERO) at (918) CLEVELAND (WESTBROOK) 7:05 PM

Ricky Romero of the Jays didn’t allow an earned run in either of his last two starts (14 innings) and will look to extend that streak on Monday night as a -150 favorite in Cleveland. For the season, Romero, a former top 10 first round draft pick, boasts a 2.85 ERA and 1.217 WHIP in 15 starts, going 6-3. He would seem to be a in a very good spot here against Jake Westbrook and Cleveland, but keep in mind, Romero’s road WHIP is a much-less flattering 1.593 in 2010.

(921) CHI WHITE SOX (BUEHRLE) at (922) KANSAS CITY (LEREW) 8:10 PM

Mark Buehrle of the White Sox took full advantage of the interleague schedule by going 3-0 over the last 2+ weeks. In wins over Atlanta, Pittsburgh and the Cubs, Buehrle allowed just four earned runs in 20 innings. He has done very well versus the Royals throughout his career, going 20-10 with a WHIP of 1.221. One trend you’ll want to consider for tonight focuses on Buehrle’s performance on totals:

• BUEHRLE is 19-6 UNDER (+12.3 Units) in road games in night games over the last 3 seasons. (Team's Record) The average score was BUEHRLE 3.3, OPPONENT 4.1 - (Rating = 1*)




MLB system supports Kansas City win
2010-05-13

If it wasn’t so absurd, it might be laughable for current Cy Young winner Zack Greinke (0-4, 2.51 ERA, 1.050 WHIP). Grienke is 11th in the American League in ERA and seventh in WHIP, yet he has not registered a victory this season pitching for the Kansas City Royals. Today could be the day, as he is backed by a healthy betting system and pitching as a -185 favorite according to Sportsbook.com.
At this time a year ago Greinke had six wins and all the talented right-hander can say is “I’m just trying to keep us in ball games. We’re just getting beat right now,” Greinke stated.
The Royals lack of success falls into one broad pool. The Royals ace has to be perfect every time because his offense is objectionable. In his seven starts Kansas City hitters have scored a grand total of 17 runs, 2.4 per outing. K.C. is 1-6 in Greinke’s outings and he’s placed them in position to win two other games, but the bullpen blew those opportunities.
The Royals will look to avoid being swept by Cleveland at home. The Indians are on a three-game winning streak and have three consecutive double digit hit games in a row for the first time this season. This is certainly a rarity for club with a .248 team batting average.
David Huff (1-4, 4.60, 1.500) will toe the rubber for the Tribe, looking to avoid a fourth straight loss. Huff has really struggled of late with 7.16 ERA in three previous trips to the mound, allowing 34 hits + walks combined in 16.1 innings. Of the 25 base hits conceded, six were home runs which takes his total to seven dingers in only five starts.
Sportsbook.com has the Indians as +170 money line underdogs and they fall into a negative super system.
Play Against road underdogs with a money line of +125 to +175, who are below average AL hitting team at .265 or less, against a good starting pitcher (ERA <=4.20), with a starting pitcher who gives up one or more home runs a start.
Kansas City has lost seven in a row and won’t run into many better opportunities than this for a much needed victory. Since 1997, this system is 87-24, 78.4 percent with the favorite winning by two runs on average. Greinke is 5-7 lifetime against Cleveland but is 3-0, with 2.52 ERA in his last six starts against the Indians.
If Greinke pitches his usual game and Huff continues to be ineffective, every reason to believe the Tribe falls to 13-37 vs. a starting pitcher who strikes out five or more batters.


MLB: Florida floundering and in rotten situation
2009-09-03

Both Atlanta and Florida are on the outer reaches of the race for the wild card chase, nevertheless, both still have a chance if they could put together a significant winning streak and Colorado would falter. The Braves have placed themselves in the better position having won the last two nights against the Marlins at Land Shark Stadium, leaving them three games behind the Rockies. Florida has been in a swoon and will find it difficult to recover tonight, going up against a powerful betting system. Get more about this key game on the LIVE ODDS, BETTING TRENDS, and TEAM STATISTICS pages.

Atlanta (70-62, -3.5 units) is chasing its first postseason berth in four years and has helped itself immensely winning eight of its last 11 games on the road, moving to 35-32 on the season as visitors. The Braves are 19-9 after five or more consecutive road games this season and have named Javier Vazquez (11-9, 3.02 ERA) as starter, who will be seeking his fifth straight road win.

Atlanta has won Vazquez’s last five starts on the road and he is 7-2 with 2.96 ERA in Braves traveling uniforms and the linemakers at Sportsbook.com have made this combination a -150 money line favorite.

Florida (68-64, +0.9 units) has been in a tailspin at just the wrong time, losing nine of its last 13 games. The bats haven’t been able to keep up with the Florida weather and have averaged a cool four runs per game in the process, compared to 4.7 on the season.

The Marlins failed to take advantage of a favorable situation last night facing Tim Hudson, who was making his first start in 13 months after elbow surgery, but scored only two runs in 5 1/3 innings against him and three on the night in a frustrating 4-3 defeat.

Rich VandenHurk (2-2, 5.12) gets the ball for Florida after being a September call-up from the minors, having had success against the Braves with 2-0 record and 3.91 ERA in five lifetime starts. While that makes Fish fans hopeful, the fact remains VandenHurk was sent back down to the minors in mid-August after posting 7.98 ERA in three previous starts.

This leads to a potentially lucrative system for the baseball sports bettor that reads this way.

Play Against home underdogs with a money line of +125 to +175, who are an average NL offensive team scoring 4.3 to 4.8 runs a game, against a good starting pitcher (ERA of 3.70 or less), after a loss by two runs or less.
Dating back to 1997, this superb system is 53-14, 79.1 percent, with the average margin of victory being 2.6 runs per game. This profitable system is enhanced with Vazquez and the Braves 13-3 as road favorite of -110 or higher. Consider this as potential play in Wednesday baseball action.


Why not bet San Diego tonight?
2009-07-01

It may not seem like a lot, but San Diego has won three of its last four games for the first time in over a month. On Wednesday night, the Padres will continue a 4-game set at home against the Astros, trying to make it four out of five. Oddsmakers have put them as +110 underdogs. Don’t let the line dissuade you though, San Diego is backed by two different powerful FoxSheets systems.

Here are those systems. They are similar but still unique. The first one is a rare 5* StatFox Super Situation:

Play Against - Road teams when the money line is +125 to -125 (HOUSTON) - with a bad bullpen that blows 38% or more of their save opportunities against opponent with a starting pitcher whose ERA is 6.70 or worse on the season (NL)
(74-21 since 1997.) (77.9%, +51.5 units. Rating=5*)

The other one reads as follows:

Play On - Any team (SAN DIEGO) - with a starting pitcher whose ERA is 6.70 or worse on the season (NL), after 2 straight games where the bullpen gave up no earned runs
(44-18 over the last 5 seasons.) (71.0%, +34.8 units. Rating=4*)

Both systems seem to be indicating that this game could be decided in the late innings, and the fact that San Diego’s bullpen is pitching well, and Houston’s is not, gives the Padres an edge.

On Tuesday, the Padres snapped their six-game skid to the Astros, but they may have lost their best player in the processwith Adrian Gonzalez departing after straining his right knee sliding into third on a fourth-inning RBI triple.

"We're going to see how it sets up overnight, and (Wednesday) morning we'll see if there is a need for any tests," manager Bud Black said.

Gonzalez has played in 283 straight games, the longest current streak in the majors. He's 22 shy of Steve Garvey's franchise record.

San Diego is last in baseball with 291 runs and a .236 batting average. The Padres hit .230 while losing 17 of 26 in June. They dropped 10 of 15 at Petco Park last month after winning 10 in a row there from May 7-24.

San Diego will hand the ball to Walter Silva (0-1, 9.35 ERA), who makes his fifth career start. The 32-year-old rookie walked four and allowed a season-high nine runs over 2 1-3 innings of Friday's 12-2 loss to Texas.

The Astros (36-39) counter with veteran right-hander Brian Moehler (4-4, 6.05). Houston has won his last three starts and seven of the previous nine. Moehler gave up four runs - one earned - in five innings of Thursday's 5-4 victory over Kansas City. He didn't get the decision after Houston committed three errors.

Houston is 13-5 against the NL West in 2009, but 2-5 at Petco Park.

Game time is 10:05 PM ET in San Diego.


Football Betting is back on Wednesday!
It might not be the first day of the college season, nor the start of the NFL preseason for that matter, but football bettors can still rejoice that the action is back on Wednesday night, with the CFL offering a Canada Day doubleheader. It’s a unique set of games in that the first one pits the two worst teams of a year ago, while the second matches the defending Grey Cup finalists from 2008. Still, both contests should be competitive. Here’s a quick look at both, including some key betting info, direct from FoxSheets.

In the opening matchup, Hamilton will host Toronto. These teams combined to win just three and four games respectively a year ago, at least four less than any other clubs, so work clearly needs to be done. Despite that, cautious optimism still reigns supreme. Hamilton will likely be handing the reigns of the team to young quarterback Quinton Porter, who last started for Boston College in the 2005 season. He will be guiding an offense that actually produced well in ’08, scoring 24.5 PPG while gaining a respectable 8.2 yards per pass attempt.

Defensively in where the Tiger Cats really need to improve in order to be more competitive this season. That unit yielded 32.9 PPG to opponents last season, second most in the CFL, not coincidentally to, Toronto.

The Argonauts have not won a game since Labour Day and have a new coach with no CFL experience. Still, there is hope that Bart Andrus and his staff can help quarterback Kerry Joseph return to the form that made him a league MVP and a Grey Cup champion with Saskatchewan in 2007.

Toronto was outscored by 13.1 PPG, and was probably fortunate to win four games in ’08, as it ranked dead last in the league in both points scored and allowed.

The Argos opened as a 1-1/2 point favorite, but since the line has moved to Hamilton minus-2. The total has settled in at 51.5. The Argos have won three of the last four head-to-head games in Hamilton, both straight up and ATS, including that Labour Day triumph, 34-31.

Both teams sported ugly 2-7 SU & ATS records in the current home/road dichotomies, so no real advantage can be gained in that analysis. The StatFox Game Estimator #1 projects a 33-26 win for the hosts.

If you’re interested in backing a top trend for game one of the twinbill, consider that HAMILTON is 18-5 UNDER (+12.5 Units), and TORONTO 18-6 UNDER (+11.4 Units) in the first two weeks of the season since 1996.

The nightcap is certainly a bit more intriguing of a game, as defending champion Calgary welcomes runner up Montreal to town. The Stampeders opened as a 3-1/2 point favorite but have been bet up to minus-7.5.

Calgary is the favorite by oddsmakers to repeat as CFL champ, but if any team is to stand in its way, it would be Montreal, the heavy favorite in the East Division. Repeating a Grey Cup title has proven to be a tough task. It's only been done five times, with the 1996-97 Argonauts being the last team to accomplish the feat. The Stampeders will be looking to be the sixth team.

"The thing is, we didn't peak last year - in any of the phases (of football)," said Stamps quarterback Henry Burris. "This year, that gives us that challenge to go out there and build the right way and make sure we're peaking at the right time - and actually peak this season."

For a team that didn't peak, Calgary was pretty good. They finished 13-5 and were second in the league with 568 points scored. The defence allowed just 387 points against, tops in the CFL. Coach John Hufnagel was named the CFL's Coach of the Year.

If Calgary does repeat, they would be just the fourth team to win the Grey Cup as the host. The last team to pull that off was the B.C. Lions in 1994.

The Alouettes won the East at 11-7 last year and will have 2008 Most Outstanding Player Anthony Calvillo back at quarterback to lead an offence that led the league with 584 points scored. Avon Cobourne will chase the league's first 1,000 yard rushing and 1,000 yard receiving season. He was on pace to do it last year before injuring his ankle.

One notable stat plagues the Alouettes. They were 0-3 playing Calgary last season, including the 22-14 Grey Cup setback. Montreal scored just 21.0 PPG in those three contests, well below the 35.1 PPG pace set in the other 17 games it played.

There are two key StatFox Power Trends available for Wednesday’s game:

Favoring Calgary ATS:
CALGARY is 8-1 ATS (+6.9 Units) in non-conference games over the last 2 seasons. The average score was CALGARY 33.3, OPPONENT 18.2 - (Rating = 1*)

Favoring Under the Total:
MONTREAL is 18-6 UNDER (+11.4 Units) in the first two weeks of the season since 1996. The average score was MONTREAL 28.9, OPPONENT 17.8 - (Rating = 1*)

The StatFox Game Estimator calls for only a 30-26 win by Calgary, so it would seem that oddsmakers had it right when they opened up the line. We’ll see if bettors have gotten a bit overzealous in backing the defending champs.

Tune in to both games in HD on Canada’s TSN tonight, starting at 7:00 PM ET.
