Sportsmemo's MLB Betting Preview: Baltimore Orioles

03.13.2015     07:43 AM     Printer Friendly

Off 96 wins and a trip the ALCS, the Baltimore Orioles remain virtually the same team heading into 2015. That may or may not be a good thing with terms like "overachieve" and "regression" being commonly used to describe 2015's projections.

Baltimore Orioles
2014 W-L:
2014 O/U: 69-89-4
2014 Profits: +34.8
2015 O/U Wins: 82.5
2015 AL East Odds: +370
Projected Starting Rotation: Chris Tillman, Wei-Yin Chen, Bud Norris, Miguel Gonzalez, Kevin Gausman
Key Departures: Nelson Cruz, Nick Markakis
Key Additions: Travis Snider

Handicapper's Take: "The Baltimore Orioles have put in some great years under skipper Buck Showalter but can they sustain the seemingly unsustainable level they’ve been playing at?  The major question mark for this team will be their starting pitching. Chris Tillman, Wei-Yin Chen, Bud Norris, Miguez Gonzalez and Ubaldo Jimenez are all average to slightly Read more

Baltimore (Gonzalez) at Toronto (Happ) -110 O/U 9
Recommendation: Toronto

This is a maximum intensity spot for the Toronto Blue Jays who aim to take the rubber match of their pivotal three-game series vs. Baltimore. Toronto bounced back impressively last night with a 5-1 win after a lethargic and poorly played 9-3 loss in the series opener. JA Happ, who was a major question mark early in the season when he was inserted back into the rotation, has allowed just four earned runs in his last 18.1 innings of work over his last three starts for a 1.96 ERA. He faced Baltimore on the road back in June and did a very good job neutralizing the Orioles allowing a single run in 6 innings of work with no walks and 7 strikeouts in a 5-2 win. I expect him to have another good outing tonight and the Blue Jays bullpen is rested and ready following Drew Hutchison’s 1 run, 1 hit gem last night which saw him pitch 8.2 innings. Miguel Gonzalez has been solid for Baltimore as of late but his road ERA Read more

MLB Handicapper Free Play: Baltimore Orioles at Texas Rangers

Submitted by Teddy Covers

-Baltimore- (Norris) -115 at -Texas- (Martinez) O/U 9
Recommendation: Baltimore

After a half decade of dominance, the Texas Rangers have clearly fallen back to the pack here in 2014.  Their roster has been decimated with injuries, leaving their starting rotation thin and their lineup largely non-productive.  Last night’s blowout loss brought the Rangers back down to .500; the sixth time in seven games that they’ve been held to three runs or less.

The Rangers don’t enjoy much of a homefield edge these days, just 4-10 in their last 14 here in Arlington.  They’ve allowed eight runs or more three times in their last four ballgames – their starters other than Yu Darvish haven’t been very effective and this bullpen is getting torched fairly consistently.

Rangers’ rookie Nick Martinez was forced into a starter’s role due to all the injuries after opening up the season in the bullpen.  He’s coming off a career high 108 Read more

Baltimore (Norris) +110 at Tampa Bay (Ramos) O/U 7.5
Recommendation: Baltimore

The first place Baltimore Orioles have scored 77 runs in their last 13 road games, showing the offensive potency that this lineup was expected to have coming into the campaign.  That’s how Baltimore has won eight of those thirteen ballgames, cashing each and every one of those winning bets at an underdog price.

And there’s no reason to think that Tampa spot starter Cesar Ramos is going to be able to shut down the Orioles lineup today either.  Ramos has been bouncing between the bullpen and the rotation.  He issued six walks in just 4.2 innings against Boston last Thursday, then came out of the bullpen against the Yankees on Saturday; a classic ‘likely to struggle finding a rhythm’ type start tonight.  The Rays bullpen behind Ramos has been overworked and ineffective of late – the Rays starters have completed six full innings only twice in their Read more

MLB Handicapper Free Pick: Texas Rangers at Houston Astros

Texas (Perez) at Houston (Keuchel)
Recommendation: Texas -1.5 (-120) R/L

There were times this year where the Houston Astros played some halfway decent baseball but as a whole, they've been overwhelmed by the American League. Since July, the 'Stros are 7-26. And with the departure of Bud Norris, there simply aren't very main quality arms left in the rotation. Dallas Keuchel has grinded out a few quality starts but he's a very fringe MLB arm. He's allowed 17 home runs in just over 100 innings and over his last three appearances (9.2 IP) he's allowed 11 earned runs. Meanwhile Martin Perez has a lot of potential. I watched him closely his last two starts and came away very impressed. Here's a hard throwing left-hander with downward movement on his pitches who is starting to show the ability to miss bats. Perez is coming off a season-high 111 pitches, but he's barely north of 100 innings between his time in the minors and in majors. He should be good to go against the Astros and a worthy Read more

Seattle Mariners vs Houston Astros (Saunders vs Norris)
Recommendation: Take Seattle -118

The Mariners went into the All Star break clicking on all cylinders, outscoring the LA Angels 18-6 in a three game sweep. That came on the heels of series victories on the road at Cincinnati and at Texas, two teams that are a combined 24 games over .500. With a surprisingly potent lineup that has produced at least four runs 13 times in their last 14 ballgames, Eric Wedge’s squad is poised to be a real second half moneymaker starting tonight!

It’s not hard to make a case for supporting Joe Saunders these days. Saunders is 3-1 with a 1.26 ERA in his last five road starts after starting the season 0-4 with an 11.25 ERA in his first five road outings. Overall, Saunders has allowed a single earned run or less five times in his last six trips to the hill while pitching into the seventh inning in all five of those successful games. Facing an Astros team that has notched only ten wins all year against opposing southpaws, expect another solid showing from Saunders and the quality bullpen behind Read more

MLB Handicapper Free Pick: Kansas City Royals at Houston Astros

05.21.2013     10:34 AM     Printer Friendly blog entry.
Kansas City (Davis) -125 at Houston (Norris) O/U 8.5
Recommendation: Over

Kansas City's Wade Davis has probably been a bit unlucky this season (.393 BABIP) but you have to be careful when calling for a pitcher's luck to turn, especially when dealing with a fringe arm like Davis. Keep in mind Davis' struggles are nothing new. In 2010 and 2011, as a starter, Davis was a below average AL starter with xFIPs of 4.61 and 4.82 respectively. I've always been a believer of Bud Norris but I do have some concerns after he left his last start with back spasms. His strikeouts this season are way down (33 in 50 IP) after posting a K per inning in 2012. Some of that has to do with pitching in the American League but with only 4 Ks in his last two starts, he doesn't appear to be in great form. Neither offense is much to get excited about but I see the potential for a lot of balls to be put in play tonight and as a result, we'll take a look at the over.

Cincinnati (Bailey) at Houston (Norris)
Recommendation: Cincinanti -1.5 R/L +110

To say that the Astros are slumping is something of an understatement.  They’re not slumping, they’ve completely collapsed; a woeful 2-21 in their last 23 ballgames.  16 of those losses have come by two runs or more, a run line bettor’s paradise to fade this sorry squad. 

Houston is jettisoning veterans prior to the trading deadline, dumping Wandy Rodriguez, Bret Myers and Carlos Lee over the past few weeks.  GM Jeff Luhnow made it very clear that their focus is on restocking the farm system, not winning games over the back half of the season.  "We're accumulating quite a lot of talent in our system, and that's everywhere from rookie ball to Triple-A." 

The Astros are 0-8 in starter Bud Norris’ last eight trips to the hill, and he’s only notched two quality starts during that entire span.  Norris has issued eleven Read more

MLB Betting News: Despite past success, Norris an iffy play vs. Cardinals

06.06.2012     12:38 PM     Printer Friendly blog entry.
St. Louis (Wainwright) -135 at Houston (Norris) O/U 8

Bud Norris has made our "watch list" after seeing reports of a hip flexor injury. Over his last two starts, Norris allowed 12 earned runs and 15 hits in 6.1 innings. Note that Norris has a proven track record against the Cards (7-2, 2.17 ERA, 1.15 WHIP). The price however may be too rich on Adam Wainwright who despite pitching better of late is a tough sell as a road favorite.

MLB Handicapping: Starting pitcher velocity updates

05.21.2012     12:48 PM     Printer Friendly blog entry.
FanGraphs provided an update on the currently velocity situations for various starting pitchers. A handful of high-profile arms that were down in April are throwing harder of late (CC Sabathia, Justin Masterson, Roy Halladay, among others). Tim Lincecum meanwhile remains far removed from his velocity of previous editions. It's the main reasons he’s tossed only one quality start this season (vs. San Diego).

Worst starting pitcher profits
Tim Linecum -6.2 units
Cliff Lee -6.8 units
Ervin Santana -6.9 units
Chris Volstad -8.0 units
Dan Haren -12.3 units

Best starting pitcher profits
Bud Norris +7.7 units
Gio Gonzalez +6.0 units
James Shields +5.9 units
Wei-Yin Chen +5.7 units
Johnny Cueto +5.8 units
