This Week in Sports Betting: Brexit Bets

When it comes to predicting political outcomes, it appears American betting markets aren’t the only ones that might be better than the national pollsters.

In five of the six latest polls, the gap between Remain and Leave was gauged to be three points or less. Ladbrokes odds, on the other hand, suggest there is a 76 percent chance the UK will vote to Remain part of the EU. 

That’s a bloody big difference. 


Austria Struggling to Score Goals

Marko Arnautovic Austria Euro 2016

Following an incredibly impressive qualifying campaign that saw them win nine games and draw one, many pegged Austria as a dark horse in Euro 2016. Now, with one game remaining in the group stage, they find themselves in last place in what has been a tricky group. A victory against Iceland could put those poor first two performances behind them and into the Round of 16.

Mets Seeking Big Performance Out of Syndergaard

The New York Mets’ bullpen will be hoping hard-throwing right-hander Noah Syndergaard can do some damage against the Kansas City Royals tonight. After starter Bartolo Colon exited following one batter with a right thumb contusion, the Mets’ bullpen worked 8.5 excellent innings in a 2-1 win on Tuesday.

Shark Bites
  • The total has gone OVER in four of the Royals' last five games on the road against the Mets.
  • The total has gone UNDER in seven of the Mets' last 10 games during the afternoon.
  • The Royals are 5-2 SU in their last seven games with Danny Duffy as the starting pitcher.

Danny Duffy is slated to counter for the Royals. Duffy (2-1, 3.17 ERA) has notched a 2-1 mark with a 3.25 ERA in seven starts since leaving the bullpen for the starting rotation. Duffy allowed one hit in 1.5 scoreless innings of relief in his last appearance against the Mets on April 5.

Syndergaard was the only hurler to record a win in New York’s lone triumph over the Royals in last year’s World Series. The fireballer has 11 quality starts this season and permitted just 18 earned runs in 85 innings of work.

Cubs Haven't Been Swept All Year

The Chicago Cubs haven’t been swept in a series all year long, but the St. Louis Cardinals will be looking to become the first team to do so on Wednesday.

Shark Bites
  • The visiting team is 4-0 SU in its last four games in this matchup.
  • The Cardinals are 7-0 SU in their last seven games on the road.
  • The total has gone UNDER in 14 of the Cubs' last 16 games as home favorites.

Michael Wacha and Jake Arrieta are slated to get the nod for the Cards and Cubbies, respectively. Wacha (2-7, 4.56 ERA) has dropped seven-straight decisions, with his last win coming against the Padres on April 23. Wacha has struggled against Chicago, going 3-4 with a 5.90 ERA in 10 career matchups with the North Siders.

Arrieta has won two-straight starts since collecting his first loss in over 10 months. Arrieta is 5-1 with a 2.09 ERA in 10 starts against the Cardinals and owns a miniscule ERA of 1.95 in 40 career outings at Wrigley Field.

Nationals Try to Avoid Sweep at Dodger Stadium

The Dodgers will send rookie Julio Urias to the mound in search of the series sweep of the NL East-leading Nationals, who will give the ball to Joe, the healthier of the two Ross brothers.  

The Dodgers are 7-0  in their last 7 games against teams in the NL East.
The favored team is 11-2 in its last 13 games in this matchup.
The Nationals are 9-2 in their last 11 games on Wednesday.

Urias (0-2, 4.50 ERA) was called up this season as the number one prospect in the Dodgers' organization, but he has failed to live up to the hype so far and has been on a significant pitch limit. The rookie lefty hasn’t tossed more than 86 pitches through his five starts and has failed to pitch past the sixth inning. Julio was good his last time out, pitching five innings of shutout ball in which he racked up eight K’s.

Joe Ross (6-4, 3.13 ERA) was penciled in as the Nationals’ fifth starter this year and many thought he would be sent down to Triple-A at the first sign of trouble. The young righty, however, has pitched too well to be demoted and is giving the Nats a chance to win every game he starts.

Ross is 3-0 in his last five starts, which have all resulted in Washington wins, and will look to get revenge on a Dodgers team that beat up on him for five runs in Ross’s last and only start vs Los Angeles.

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).

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.
