Detroit's Fulmer Looks to Continue Dominant Run

Two American League teams with identical 36-35 records will square off Wednesday as Seattle gives the ball to Hisashi Iwakuma (6-5, 4.18) to pitch against Detroit’s rookie right-hander, Michael Fulmer (7-2, 2.43 ERA).

SHARK BITES
The Tigers are 7-1 in their last 8 games with Michael Fulmer as the starting pitcher.
The Mariners are 1-3 in their last 4 games against the Tigers.
The Tigers are 1-4  in their last 5 games as a moneyline favorite of -125 or less.

Iwakuma has been a lock to go seven innings in his past five games. He has however, also been a lock to give up at least three runs. One thing Iwa has going for him is the right-handed dominant batting lineup of the Tigers. Right-handed batters are hitting .239 on Iwakuma compared to the gaudy .308 lefties are hitting off the veteran Japanese international.

Michael Fulmer was a highly touted prospect in the Tigers organization and through ten starts, he has proved the hype is real. Fulmer has allowed one – yes, one – run total in his last five starts and has only allowed two runs in his last 40 innings pitched. In two starts at home, the rookie is 2-0 with a 0.69 ERA.

With Iwakuma’s efficiency against righties and Fulmer’s dominance over his last six starts, a bet on the UNDER of the 8.5 run total may be pretty safe.

Giants are on Fire, Pirates are a Dumpster Fire

The Pittsburgh Pirates are on a serious slide, having lost 11 of their last 13 games, and might be in trouble today as they host the sizzling San Francisco Giants. The Giants are winners of nine of their last 10 and four of their last five road games.

Giants hitters have a combined .291 batting average in 79 at-bats vs Liriano

Francisco Liriano will be tasked with stopping the bleeding for the Bucs, but the lefty has been on a slide himself, recording a loss in four straight games while allowing a total of 16 earned runs in those contest. He has been a drastically different pitcher at home, however, putting up a 3-3 record with a 2.86 ERA in six starts at PNC Park.

The Giants will counter with Jeff Samardzija, who’s having a nice bounce back season after an ugly 2015. He’s coming off his best performance of the season — a complete game four-hitter in Tampa Bay where he allowed just one run. He’s likely not looking forward to facing Pirates’ outfielder Andrew McCutchen who has a .406 batting average in 32 at-bats against him.

Odds on LeBron James Leaving the Cavs

LeBron James Cleveland Cavaliers

When LeBron James came back to Cleveland in 2014 after an excursion to Miami, he made one promise: to bring a championship to Northeast Ohio. Thanks to a massive comeback over the Golden State Warriors in the NBA Finals, James and the rest of the Cleveland Cavaliers delivered on that promise. And what a story it was.

Now that Bron Bron has brought Cleveland its first championship since 1964, there’s no possible way he could leave again, right? Right?! No one knows at this point. One online book is offering odds on where No. 23 will suit up next season.

NHL Awards in Vegas: Betting Odds

The NHL’s version of the Oscars will take place Wednesday in the city that, conveniently enough, will be the host of the newest NHL franchise. Betting odds have been released for the NHL awards and a few players jump off the page as potential value picks.

Braden Holtby is by far the biggest favorite at -3000 to take home the Vezina Trophy for being the league's best goaltender. He isn’t as much of a lock as Carey Price was last year at -10000, but he’s pretty close. At +1500, Jonathan Quick is a laughable candidate for the Vezina, don’t waste your money.
