San Francisco Giants at Milwaukee Brewers Betting Odds and Pick

The Milwaukee Brewers battle the visiting San Francisco Giants on Monday in MLB betting odds action at Miller Park.

For the Milwaukee Brewers, Wily Peralta gets the ball, charged with keeping the San Francisco Giants hitters off the base paths. He'll face Madison Bumgarner, 0-0 on the year.

Houston Astros vs New York Yankees Betting Odds Preview and Pick

The New York Yankees will look to improve on a 0-0 record when they take on the Houston Astros, a key part of the MLB betting odds line up on Monday.

Dallas Keuchel, with a record of 0-0 on the season, gets the ball for the Houston Astros, while the New York Yankees trot Masahiro Tanaka to the mound in this one. He is 0-0 so far in 2016.

Arrieta Looks to Continue Road Dominance

The long march towards October starts today for the Cubs and the Angels, and nothing short of a World Series victory will satisfy a Cubs fan base who’s desperate to see the club win their first Fall Classic since 1908. Reining Cy Young winner Jake Arrieta will take the mound for the Cubs, and the Angels will counter with their ace, Garrett Richards.

Arietta did his best work on the road last season, registering a 1.60 ERA, 9.4 K/9, and 13 wins while only allowing four home runs in 18 starts away from Wrigley. As good as that is, he was even better when pitching in California last season. In two combined starts in the Golden State, Arrieta went 2-0 with a 0.00 ERA, with 20 strikeouts in 15 innings pitched.

As for Richards, he was far better at home last season compared to on the road, posting a 2.92 ERA with 10 wins and 8.0 K/9. For his career vs Cubs hitters though, he’s been absolutely lit up, allowing a .423 batting average and .500 on base percentage in 26 at-bats.

The teams last played in 2013 when the Cubs won three out of four games.

M’s Aim To Continue Roll Vs Rangers

The Seattle Mariners will be looking to accomplish their unfulfilled promise from last season when they start their 2016 campaign against the Texas Rangers Monday. The M’s fared well against their AL West counterpart last year, with Seattle taking four of the final five against Texas while averaging nearly five runs per game.

Seattle will send ace Felix Hernandez to the mound on Monday who is coming off a down year, which still saw the righty post a 3.53 ERA and a 1.18 WHIP. King Felix has been damn near unhittable on Opening Day, as he is 6-0 with a 1.49 ERA in eight career starts to kickoff the Mariners’ season.

Cole Hamels will get the ball for the Rangers after posting a splendid 7-1 record with a 3.66 ERA after joining Texas in a midseason trade last year. However, Hamels has historically struggled kicking off the season with the hurler going 0-2 with an 8.10 ERA in his two Opening Day starts for the Philadelphia Phillies.

Dickey Struggled on the Road in 2015

The Toronto Blue Jays opened the 2016 MLB regular season with a bang by topping the Tampa Bay Rays 5-3 in Florida on Sunday. Monday night’s grudge match features hurlers R.A. Dickey and Drew Smyly going for their teams.

Shark Bites
  • The total has gone OVER in three of the Blue Jays' last four games against the Rays.
  • The Blue Jays are 6-2 SU in their last eight games against the Rays.
  • The Rays are 53-24 against the Blue Jays at home since 2007.

Dickey has historically been much better at home compared to on the road, a trend that will surely favor Rays backers. The knuckleballer was 9-3 with a 3.11 ERA at home compared to a 2-8, 4.83 ERA record away from Canada. Tampa Bay slugger Evan Longoria has traditionally cleaned up against the veteran, owning an 11-for-43 with two homers and eight RBIs in his career versus Dickey.

Smyly missed three months last season with a shoulder injury but is looking like his regular self now. The 26-year-old returned in late August last year and won his final five decisions while posting a 2.50 ERA in September. Smyly allowed six runs and 10 hits in 20 innings during spring training.

White Sox Have Dominated The A’s

The Chicago White Sox and Oakland Athletics both ended last season with a lot to be desired from their fans, but the Pale Hose have held dominion over the A’s in recent outings. The ChiSox are 7-2 in their last nine games against the A’s while averaging 5.1 runs per contest.

The White Sox will start strikeout machine Chris Sale Monday, as the pitcher coming off a campaign in which he posted a 3.41 ERA and a 1.09 WHIP while leading the AL with 274 Ks. This will be Sale’s third career Opening Day start, with the hurler going 2-0 with a sub-2.00 ERA in those outings.

Sonny Gray, who will get the ball Monday, will probably be the only reason to watch the Athletics this season, as the team has a less-than-mediocre outlook heading into the 2016 campaign. Gray was phenomenal last season with a 2.73 ERA and 1.08 WHIP over 31 starts.
