Fernandez Hopes to Add to Cubs’ Rough Patch

jose fernandez marlins mlb

The Chicago Cubs are struggling for the first time this season and will be in tough against Jose Fernandez and the Marlins today in Miami. The Cubs have lost five of their last six games — by far, their worst stretch of the season. Making things even more challenging for them today is the fact that that Fernandez does his best work at home.

Shark Bites                                          

Fernandez has never pitched against the Cubs.

The Cubs are 1-4 in their last five games in Miami.

In 123 combined at-bats against Hammel, Marlins hitters have a .285 average.

So far this season, Fernandez is 6-1 with a 1.78 ERA and 76 K’s in 50.2 innings pitched at Marlins Park. Adding the Cubs’ recent struggles into the mix makes the Marlins the favorite today, opening the day at -152. Miami is 7-3 in their last 10 games as a home favorite.

The Cubs will counter with Jason Hammel who brings a 2.39 road ERA into the game. He’s likely not looking forward to facing Marlins slugger Giancarlo Stanton, who has a career .400 average against him. Coming in today at +142, the Cubs are 3-6 in their last nine games as road underdogs.

Mario Gomez Germany Euro 2016

After winning Group C, Germany now faces a tough Slovakia team that is coming off a good performance in a 0-0 draw versus England to qualify as one of the top third-placed teams. Despite Euro 2016 fixtures averaging just around 1.9 goals scored per game and the UNDER cashing at a good clip, these two teams like to score when they meet and we could see goals Sunday in Lille.

Giants look like lock of the day against the Phillies

Madison Bumgarner Giants MLB

Opposites attract tonight in San Francisco in a game that’ll likely be easy money for bettors. For starters, the Phillies have lost 10 of their last 11 games, while the Giants have won 12 of their last 13. Then we have the pitching matchup of Jeremy Hellickson vs Madison Bumgarner.

Shark Bites

The Phillies are 2-10 in their last 12 road games.

The Giants have won eight of their last nine games over the Phillies.

Phillies catcher Carlos Ruiz has a .353 average in 17 at-bats vs Bumgarner.

The Phillies have lost six straight Hellickson starts. He’s been equally as bad on the road as he has been at home, posting an ERA of 4.46 and allowing nine home runs in seven road starts. It’s been a rough go for Hellickson in June, as he’s gone 0-3 with a 6.38 ERA in four starts.

As for Bumgarner, The Giants have won 10 of his last 11 starts. The one they didn’t win was Monday where he allowed just one run in eight innings of work. He’s been incredible at home this season, putting up a 4-1 record and 1.79 ERA in eight starts in San Fran.

It’s no shock to see the Giants as massive -285 favorites, so this game might be a better option for a parlay ticket. The Giants are 17-3 in their last 20 games as home favorites.

Astros are finally getting back on track

After spending most of the season as baseball’s most disappointing team, the Houston Astros have gotten their act together with six straights wins, and a 9-2 record over their last 11 games. This includes a 13-4 smackdown of the Royals last night in KC. The teams will faceoff again today as they attempt to make up ground in their respective divisions.

Shark bites

Royals’ hitters have a combined .325 batting average vs Fiers in 40 at-bats.

George Springer has a .270 average and 13 home runs vs right-handers this season.

The Royals are 12-2 in their last 14 home games.

Houston will send Mike Fiers to the mound in hopes that he can secure a third straight win. It might be tough though, as he’s been atrocious on the road this season, posting a 1-1 record with a 6.19 ERA in five road starts. June, however, has been his best month of the season as he has a 2.63 ERA in 24 innings of work.

The Royals will counter with righty Chris Young, and they’ve won four of his last five starts. He’s been an incredibly different pitcher at home — 2.70 home ERA vs 9.70 ERA on the road, with five starts in each situation. In one road start against the Astros in April, he allowed six runs in 4.2 innings.
