Del Valle surpreende Boca Juniors, faz a alegria de investidores e fará a final da Libertadores conta o Atlético Nacional

Definida a grande final da Libertadores 2016: Atlético Nacional-COL x Independiente del Valle-ECU vão disputar o principal título do futebol sul-americano nas próximas duas semanas (20 e 27 de julho). De todas as possibilidades de final essa era a menos provável, visto que as duas equipes enfrentaram dois gigantes da América do Sul nas semifinais. Surpresa do torneio, o time equatoriano venceu o Boca Juniors por 3 a 2 e calou um La Bombonera lotado na última quinta-feira (14).

OVER Sizzling When Nationals and Pirates Meet

The Washington Nationals and Pittsburgh Pirates were both seen as playoff-caliber teams prior to the beginning of the 2016, but only one has emerged as a real postseason threat at the All-Star break. Five games under .500, the Pirates will try and turn the ship around when they travel to D.C. to take on the Nats on Friday.

Shark Bites
  • The Pirates are 9-2 SU and 10-1 ATS in their last 11 games.
  • The total has gone OVER in the Pirates' last four games with Francisco Liriano as the starting pitcher.
  • The total has gone OVER in 12 of the Nationals' last 13 games with Stephen Strasburg as the starting pitcher.

Francisco Liriano and Stephen Strasburg are slated to get the ball for the Pirates and Nationals, respectively. Liriano (5-8, 5.15 ERA) has rebounded from a terrible stretch to allow four runs in his last two outings.

Strasburg (12-0, 2.62) opted to skip the All-Star Game due to nagging injuries, but he’s been lights out all year long. Strasburg is 2-2 with a 2.83 ERA in five career starts against the Pirates.

When the Nats and Pirates collide, the OVER is red-hot. In the last four matchups between the squads, the OVER is 4-1.

Advantage For Bettors With Interleague Totals

In case you haven’t been betting the bases this summer the story of the major league season so far has been the rise in scoring. 

Scoring has catapulted to 9.01 runs per game heading into the All-Star break, which is way up from last year’s average of 8.21 runs per game at the same time. 

You can thank the long ball for the boost in runs because MLB teams are each averaging 1.16 home runs per game this season. That’s the highest home run rate since 1.17 per game, which came in 2000 at the peak of the steroid era.

Blue Jays are Going UNDER in the Bay Area

Marcus Stroman Toronto Blue Jays

The Toronto Blue Jays entered the All-Star break playing some fantastic baseball, and they’ll look to keep up the torrid pace on Friday against the lowly Oakland A’s. The Jays are sitting in the second wild-card spot in the American League and trail Baltimore by two games in the AL East.

Shark Bites
  • The total has gone UNDER in five of the Blue Jays' last seven games against teams with losing records.
  • The Athletics are 1-5 SU in their last six games with Daniel Mengden as the starting pitcher.
  • The Blue Jays are 9-2 SU in their last 11 games on Friday.

Marcus Stroman and Daniel Mengden are the probable starters for both teams. Stroman (7-4, 4.89 ERA) has given up only three runs over his last 14.5 innings after surrendering 11 over 8.5 in his previous two outings.

Mengden (1-4, 4.54) will start in place of Rich Hill, who was scratched with a blister. Mengden has been pitching very well of late but allowed six earned runs in his most recent outing before the break.

When travelling to the Bay Area, the Blue Jays are and UNDER machine. Toronto is 5-2 in its last seven on the road against the Athletics.

Astros Could Beat up on James Paxton and the Mariners Tonight

Houston and Seattle open up an AL West dDvision series tonight as Doug Fister (8-6, 3.55 ERA) takes the mound for the Astros against James Paxton (2-3, 3.91 ERA) and the Mariners. The Houston Astros enjoyed a good run of success before the all-star break and will look to gain ground on the Rangers as they take on a division rival Friday.

SHARK BITES
The Astros are 7-1 in their last 8 games as underdogs against the Mariners.
The Mariners are 2-7 in their last 9 games with James Paxton on the mound.
The Astros are 10-3 in their last 13 games with Doug Fister as their starter.

James Paxton has done one thing really consistently this year – give up hits. In his last 10 starts, the lefty has given up five or more hits and has been batted around for as many as 11. The Canadian has pitched a little better at home this season but has only posted one win in four starts at Safeco Field.

The last time the Astros lost three straight with Fister on the mound, they went on to win their next 10 games in a row. The tall veteran has been pretty good on the road as well. He’s posted a 3.21 ERA and is 5-3 in his nine starts away from Houston this season.

Yankees in Trouble as Home Favorites vs BoSox Tonight

Baseball is back and it's time for another edition of what many see as one of the best and most historic rivalries in all of pro sports as Steven Wright (10-5, 2.68 ERA) and the Boston Red Sox head into Yankee Stadium to take on Michael Pineda (3-8, 5.38 ERA) and the Bronx Bombers.

SHARK BITES
The Red Sox are 7-3 in their last 10 games against the Yankees and 4-2 this season.
The Yankees are 7-2 in their last nine games at Yankee Stadium after a win at home.
The total has gone OVER in 5 of the Red Sox’ last 7 games with a total of 9.5 or more.

Pineda has been, for lack of a better term, weird this year. He had a horrific start to the 2016 season but had looked to have things figured out when he enjoyed an excellent June. The tall righty, however, got lit up for five runs in his last start vs the White Sox and may have a tough time keeping the big bats of the Red Sox in the yard tonight.

If it’s Steven Wright, it can't be wrong – right? The knuckleballer has been arguably Boston’s best pitcher this year and was even named an all-star. In his one start against the Bombers this year, Wright threw a complete-game three-hitter and allowed just one run. Even more impressive is the fact this performance came in Yankee Stadium, where the knuckler will pitch tonight.

The Red Sox are an interesting underdog pick tonight and deserve some serious attention.
