The Texas Rangers have not been doing very well as of late and that has translated to bettors as well. The Rangers are just 1-11 against the runline in their past 12 games – which includes a 3-1 loss to the Kansas City Royals Friday. The Rangers continue their weekend series at Kauffman Stadium Saturday.
The Rangers are 5-10 in their past 15 games against the Royals.
The UNDER is 5-1 in the past six games between the Rangers and Royals.
The Royals are 17-8 in their past 25 games at Kauffman Stadium.
Cole Hamels has been near untouchable on the road this season, as the lefty has a 1.84 ERA in 10 starts away from Arlington. In his last start – which was at Wrigley Field – Hamels pitched eight innings of one-run ball while picking up the win.
Yordano Ventura has yet to get back in the groove of things since his eight-game suspension. Ventura has a 6.55 ERA in his past four starts, but the Royals have also only supplied 2.5 runs of support per game in that span.
There is no doubt that Jose Fernandez is one of the best young pitchers in baseball today and if you need any proof, just ask the New York Mets. The Miami Marlins’ ace has dominated the Mets throughout his career with the righty posting 1.32 ERA and a 0.88 WHIP in six career appearances against New York.
The Marlins are 8-1 against the runline in their past nine home games.
The Mets are 7-3 in their past seven games in Miami.
Jose Fernandez is 8-1 with a 1.53 ERA in 10 home starts this season.
Opposing Fernandez will be Jacob deGrom. The Mets’ pitcher has been lights out as of late, with the righty giving up just three runs in his past four starts while registering 28 strikeouts.
If the Mets struggle to solve Fernandez, it could continue their impressive streak of UNDERs. The UNDER has hit in each of the Mets past 10 games with the club averaging just 2.6 runs per game in that span.
It’s a good thing for the San Francisco Giants that they held such a large lead in the NL West, as the team has been faltering as of late. The Giants have lost six-straight games while being outscored 34-19 in that span. To make matter worse, the Giants continue their weekend series against the red-hot New York Yankees Saturday.
The UNDER is 8-0 in the Yankees’ past eight games.
The Giants are 0-5 SU and against the runline in their past five road games.
Jeff Samardzija has a 6.52 ERA in three career outings against the Yankees.
It appears that it may be time for Giants’ fans to start worrying about Jeff Samardzija. The Shark continues to struggle as he has given up 32 runs and 12 home runs across his last seven outings. To pile on to that, Samadzija has a career 5.28 ERA in interleague games.
Ivan Nova will happily take the mound at Yankee Stadium, as the big right-hander has performed far better at home this year. Nova has a 3.74 ERA while holding batters to a .250 average at home, compared to his 6.25 ERA and batters hitting .307 in his road starts.
The Toronto Blue Jays dropped the first game of their weekend series against the Seattle Mariners Friday, but that means the blue birds will likely bounce back on Saturday. The Jays have only dropped back-to-back games in Toronto once since mid-May.
Russell Martin will miss his second consecutive game with a sore knee.
The Mariners are 6-2 in their past eight games against the Blue Jays.
The Blue Jays are 11-4 in their past 15 games.
R.A. Dickey will look to continue his consistent outings for the Jays. Despite being 41-years old, Dickey has pitched through the sixth inning in each of his past four starts and seven of his past nine.
The Mariners will send red-hot Hisashi Iwakuma to the mound against a Blue Jays team he has had plenty of success against in his career. Iwakuma – who is 9-2 with a 3.75 ERA over his last 11 starts – has a 2.40 ERA in five career appearances against the Jays.
