White Sox are Producing at Fenway Park

The Chicago White Sox made the best offense in baseball look weak on Monday, and they’ll be seeking to once again accomplish the feat when they invade Fenway Park for a date with the Boston Red Sox on Tuesday.

Shark Bites
  • The White Sox are 4-1 SU in their last five games on the road against the Red Sox.
  • The favored team is 2-9 SU in its last 11 games in this matchup.
  • The total has gone UNDER in the Red Sox' last three games with a closing total of 9.0 or more.

Chris Sale is slated to start for the ChiSox, while Clay Buchholz will counter for Boston. Sale (11-2, 2.94 ERA) has not been his usual self over his last five starts, as the Florida native has accumulated a 6.07 ERA during that span. Sale was lit up for seven runs and 12 hits in five innings at Fenway on July 30 last season.

Buchholz is getting another opportunity to regain his spot in the starting rotation after being sent to the bullpen in May. Buchholz is 3-3 with a 4.04 ERA in nine career starts against Chicago.

Totals bettors will be interested to know this game is trending UNDER. In Boston's last three games when facing totals of 9 or more, the UNDER is 3-0. Most shops opened the OVER/UNDER for the tilt at 9.

Kazmir Looks For First QS in Four Games

Bryce Harper will face Scott Kazmir for the first time in his career tonight as the Nationals and Tanner Roark try to rebound from another dominant Clayton Kershaw start.

SHARK BITES
The Nationals are 6-2 in their last 8 games against teams with winning records.
The Dodgers are 7-0 in their last 7 games on Tuesday.
The total has gone OVER in 7 of the Nationals' last 9 games with a total of 7.5 or less.

Roark (6-4, 3.14 ERA) has been a solid back-end starter for the Nats this season but has struggled in evening games on the road, posting an ERA over four in both of those splits. Washington will look to give Roark some run support against the left-throwing Kazmir. The Nationals have a .269 team batting average (BA) against lefties compared to a .244 team BA against righties.

Since being traded to Houston last year, Scott Kazmir has posted an ERA over four and won only seven games in 27 kicks at the can. The lefty, who failed to register a quality start in his last three games, has been on a short leash lately and hasn’t pitched deeper than the sixth inning since May 14.

The total of 7.5 could be shattered tonight in a matchup of offenses that both have the potential to be explosive.

World Series Rematch at Citi Field

The last time the Kansas City Royals travelled to Citi Field they were drinking champagne in light of their second World Series title. After a bumpy start to the season, the Royals are looking like themselves once again in the form of an 8-1 stretch in their last nine games. K.C. and the Mets will square off once again on Tuesday.

Shark Bites
  • The Royals are 7-2 SU in their last nine games against the Mets.
  • The total has gone OVER in six of the Royals' last eight games against the Mets.
  • The total has gone OVER in 10 of the Mets' last 14 games as a moneyline favorite of -190 or less.

Ian Kennedy and Noah Syndergaard are scheduled to start for the tilt. Kennedy (5-5, 4.14 ERA) picked up his first win since May 7 last Wednesday, but his performance wasn’t very deserving of it. Kennedy allowed four runs on five hits in a 9-4 victory over Cleveland, but he’s been taken deep eight times in his last three outings.

Syndergaard (7-2, 1.91) has posted seven quality starts in a row, and has allowed just 18 earned runs in 85 innings of work this season.

Miami's Fernandez is a Beast at Home

Braves vs Marlins

NL East rivals hit the diamond today where Marlins’ ace Jose Fernandez will look to continue his run of dominance at Marlins Park with the Braves in town. Miami has been money with Fernandez on the mound, going 8-1 in his last nine starts. He’s been lights out at home this season, posting a 6-1 record and 2.06 ERA.

Shark Bites

Freddie Freeman is 5-for-15 with a home run in his career vs Fernandez.

The total has gone UNDER in seven of the Marlins' last 10 games as favorite.

The Braves are 5-12 in their last 17 games after winning as an underdog.

Coming into the game with five straight wins, this is the hottest the Braves have been all season. In fact, the last time they’ve won five in a row was way back in

Bud Norris will take the mound for the Braves and will look to improve on some ugly numbers outside of Atlanta. The righty has a 5.60 ERA with a 15–to-18 walk to strikeout ratio in road appearances.

Fernandez has had his way with the Braves throughout his career. In six career starts against Atlanta, he’s 4-1 with a 2.54 ERA with 43 K’s in 39.0 innings of work.

The Marlins have been a bit of a surprise this season as they sit four games above .500, but have struggled against the Braves in recent games, winning just one of six. Looking at their last 12 home games against the Braves, they’ve somehow managed to only go 3-9.

Cardinals go For Sixth Straight Road Win

The Cardinals upset the Cubs last night for their sixth straight road victory and will send Adam Wainwright (5-4, 4.78 ERA) to the bump to pitch against Jason Hammel (7-2, 2.26 ERA) in search of the series win.

SHARK BITES
The Cubs are 8-1 in their last nine games at home after a loss at home.
The total has gone UNDER in 13 of the Cubs' last 15 games at home.
The Cardinals are 3-7 in their last 10 games against the Cubs.

Jaime Garcia turned in an unexpected excellent road start against the Cubbies last night and the consummate Cardinal, Adam Wainwright, will toe the rubber at Wrigley tonight, trying to do the same. Wainwright has seen his numbers inflate this year but has turned in three straight quality starts. When he faced the Cubs in May, the righty got knocked around in a no-decision in which he allowed three earned runs, gave up seven hits and issued three walks.

Jason Hammel, the not-so-hard-throwing righty, has seen his numbers get better almost every year he’s been in the league. He brings a career-low ERA into this matchup at Wrigley Field where he has been lights out. At home, Hammel is 3-0 in five starts and has posted a stellar 2.03 ERA.

It's Not Always Sunny in Philadelphia

The City of Brotherly Love has been anything but friendly to the Philadelphia Phillies lately.

Citizens Bank Park was once perceived as a hitters’ paradise after it opened in 2004, but the venue has been downright mean to the Phillies in 2016. Prior to Monday’s contest with the Arizona Diamondbacks, the Phils were averaging just 2.7 runs per game at home.
