The New York Yankees may have moved three games over .500 for the first time this season, but it’s quite clear they’re in seller mode after dealing Aroldis Chapman to the Chicago Cubs. The Bronx Bombers are set to invade Minute Maid Park on Tuesday for a date with the Houston Astros.
The visiting team is 5-2 SU in its last seven games in this matchup.
The total has gone UNDER in 16 of the Astros' last 20 games after losing the previous game in a matchup.
The Astros are 5-1 SU in their last six games after a loss.
CC Sabathia and Doug Fister are the probable starters for the game. Sabathia’s (5-8, 4.04 ERA) winless drought reached six starts last week against the Orioles. The big lefty has given up five homers during his winless spell after yielding only two in his first 11 outings.
When the Yanks and ‘Stros collide in Texas, the UNDER is red-hot. Ten of the last 11 matchups between the squads at Texas have gone below the total.
The Los Angeles Dodgers and Tampa Bay Rays are two teams that don’t see much of each other, but they’ll face off on Tuesday when they begin a two-game interleague set in the Golden State.
The total has gone UNDER in seven of the Dodgers' last 10 games against teams with losing records.
The Dodgers are 10-4 SU in their last 14 games with a closing total of 7.5 or less.
The total has gone UNDER in the Rays' last five games against teams with winning records.
Chris Archer and Bud Norris are slated to take the hill. Archer (5-13, 4.60 ERA) snapped a six-game losing streak in his last time out, but he’s been atrocious on the road. Archer is 4-6 with a 6.37 ERA away from Tropicana Field this year.
Norris (5-9, 4.56) is 1-2 with a 4.62 ERA in seven games against the Rays. The 31-year-old threw six scoreless innings in his first outing with the Dodgers but proceeded to allow 13 runs over 15 innings in his next three starts.
Home-field advantage has been huge in this series. Visiting clubs are a measly 1-6 in the last seven games between the Dodgers and Rays.
The White Sox took the first game in the Chicago Showdown in a surprising upset of Cubs ace Jake Arrieta last night. The South Siders will be underdogs yet again tonight as they send James Shields (4-12, 4.99 ERA) to the bump to face Kyle Hendricks (9-6, 2.27 ERA).
SHARK BITES The Cubs are 6-0 in their last 6 games with Kyle Hendricks as the starting pitcher. The total has gone UNDER in 8 of the Cubs' last 10 games. The total has gone OVER in the White Sox' last 6 games after winning as an underdog.
“Big Game” James had a rough introduction with the White Sox but since the end of June, has actually been really good. Shields has not allowed more than two runs in a start since June 23 and has posted five straight quality starts.
Hendricks has been absolutely lights out for well over a month now and is yet to allow an earned run in three July starts at Wrigley. He has not been quite as efficient on the road, though, in eight road starts Hendricks has posted a 3.63 ERA and has only come away with two wins.
The Cubs are a tough team to bet against but I think the trends give the White Sox moneyline a ton of value.
It’s the best in the AL Central vs the best in the NL East when the Nationals and Indians open up a two-game series tonight in Cleveland. The Tribe sends their best pitcher to the mound tonight with Danny Salazar looking to improve on his 11-3 record and 2.75 ERA. The Indians have been rolling when Salazar starts, winning eight of the last nine games he’s pitched in.
It’s a small sample size with only three starts in July so far, but Salazar is having his worst month of the season. Salazar has a 5.50 ERA on the month and has allowed batters to hit for a .316 average.
Gio Gonzalez gets the ball for the Nats and he’s not exactly lighting it up in his contract year. Despite a 4.53 ERA, Washington has won three of his last four starts. Gonzalez has had success against Indians’ hitters, as he’s limited them to a .237 average and two home runs in 76 combined at-bats. The Nats have also had their way their way with American League clubs lately, posting a 9-3 record in their last 12 interleague games.
The total for tonight’s game comes in at 8 runs. Cleveland has gone OVER in six straight games with a closing total of 8.0 or less, while Washington has gone OVER in three straight games with a day off between games.
The Mariners and Pirates will set sail on an interleague series tonight as they each send pitchers to the mound – Felix Hernandez (4-4, 3.23 ERA) and Francisco Liriano (6-9, 4.96 ERA) – who are merely shadows of their former selves.
SHARK BITES The Mariners are 5-0 in their last 5 games after a loss. The Pirates are 3-7 in their last 10 games with Liriano as the starting pitcher. The total has gone UNDER in 7 of the Mariners' last 9 games against the Pirates.
Seattle is 9-3 in interleague play this season and will be hoping for the real Hernandez tonight to keep that train rolling. In his first start back from a lengthy DL stint, King Felix got slapped around for 10 hits at Safeco. Hernandez seems to have dropped off a cliff this year and has lost velocity on his fastball. Things aren’t looking good, but the man he will face tonight has looked even worse.
If Hernandez fell off a cliff this year, Liriano jumped off a mountain – and he didn’t fall inside the strike zone. The lefty’s ERA has hovered around five all year and has a WHIP over 1.50 – that’s awful. He has been limiting teams to a few fewer runs recently but it’s hard to have confidence in a guy who leads the league in issued walks.
This is an ugly one that seems like a coin flip. It may be a safer play to try a total bet – I’m thinking the OVER.
Much more goes into measuring how good a team is than just taking a look at their regular season record. Sure, a team like the Giants can pad their record by beating up on the Rockies, Padres and D-backs all season — all teams with losing records — but wins won’t come easy come playoff time against the best the league has to offer. With that said, maybe the best measurement for how good a team actually is, is how they fare against strong competition, so let’s take a look at a few standout teams in that situation.
Betting on golf can be an exhilarating endeavor, but it can also be an extremely frustrating one.
That’s why it’s important to pick your spots when it comes to finding long shot value. With this year’s edition of the PGA Championship almost here, I’ve set my sights on three specific golfers who could create big payouts if they can take home the hardware.
A 16ª rodada do Campeonato Brasileiro está quase no seu final, mas os nove jogos já realizados foram motivo de festas para os jogadores. Foram quatro vitórias dos visitantes, além do empate do Figueirense contra o Corinthians, em São Paulo. Estes quatro resultados garantiram um retorno superior a R$ 3,00 para cada real investido em cada uma das partidas. Só quem acreditou no Sport, por exemplo, levou R$ 6,00 com a vitória do time pernambucano sobre o Cruzeiro no Mineirão.
