MLB Handicapper Free Play: Houston Astros at Boston Red Sox

Houston (Feldman) at Boston (Webster) -145 O/U 9
Recommendation: Over


I’ve bet Scott Feldman over the total several times this season and tonight looks like another solid opportunity. Feldman has pitched well of late which he should be credited for but this is not an appealing matchup for him at Fenway Park against the Red Sox. Feldman was hammered for 7 runs on 11 hits in 5.1 innings of work when he faced them back in July and has allowed 15 runs on 19 hits in 7.2 innings of work over his last two starts against Boston. Allen Webster counters for the Red Sox and he simply isn’t a pitcher that I trust to mow down opposing lineups. Webster has made three starts since joining the rotation and though he was better in his last start against the LA Angels (6.2 IP, 2 ER) in his lone start at Fenway he was roughed up by the NY Yankees for 4 runs in just 2.2 innings of work. He has been plagued by control issues with a problematic ratio of 13 walks to 8 strikeouts. Houston’s Read more

MLB Handicapper Free Play: Oakland A's at Kansas City Royals

Oakland (Kazmir) -110 at Kansas City (Vargas) O/U 7
Recommendation: Oakland


When healthy, Jason Vargas has proven himself to be an above average starter at the major league level.  But Vargas is NOT healthy right now, still recovering from an emergency appendectomy that cost him a full month’s worth of playing time.  Kansas City Manager Ned Yost: “He's just still not quite sharp after his surgery.”

Vargas has been lit up in both post-appendectomy starts: 15 hits and nine runs allowed in 9.1 innings of work.   The A’s bashed him for seven runs less than two weeks ago, and Oakland is coming off a 20 hit, 11 run outburst last night; the third time in five games they’ve scored six runs or more.   Vargas’s six losses to Oakland since the start of 2011 is his most defeats against any team during that span. A’s sluggers Coco Crisp, Jed Lowrie (questionable tonight) and Brandon Moss all have good track records Read more

MLB Gambling: Dude claimed to be in on a fix, was never in on a fix

08.13.2014     09:08 AM     Printer Friendly
SportsMemo.com blog entry.
Well, this is interesting/exhausting. A childhood friend of Pittsburgh Pirates starter Jeff Locke claimed the he and Locke were in on fixing games. The whole thing turned out to be bogus and the lesson to be learned is if someone says to bet a game because their buddy plays and will assist in the fix, they are almost assuredly lying.


“My best friend is pitching today for the ­pirates,” Hunter texted. “His name is jeff locke. he will not have a good day.” In a later text he wrote, “Tell your biggest people that pirates game today is fixed. My friend will be throwing this game.”

Tampa Bay (Helickson) -120 at Texas (Tepesch) O/U 9
Recommendation: Tampa Bay


Monday night the Rays hammered Texas 7-0 and they look to have their way again tonight with the hapless Rangers.  Texas is a league worst 46-72 and is a team playing with zero urgency.  Players have all but mailed it in with the exception of Adrian Beltre who continues to have a career year.  Tampa starter Jeremy Hellickson should have little problem navigating the woeful Rangers lineup tonight.  Hellickson put together a stellar performance against the best offensive team in MLB his last time on the hill.  He gave up just 2 hits and 1 earned run over seven innings of work against the Oakland A's powerful lineup. "That looked like the Rookie of the Year Hellickson," manager Joe Maddon said. "My thought is now that he's done it once he can really take off." Hellickson gets a step down in class tonight and will have no problem translating that confidence from last Read more

Minnesota (Milone) -110 at Houston (Peacock) O/U 8.5
Recommendation: Minnesota


Inclined to step in against Houston starter Brad Peacock who is in the midst of one of the worst stretches of pitching MLB has seen this year.  Over his last five starts, Peacock has not made it into the sixth inning once resulting in a 9.90 ERA, 2.00 WHIP and 1-4 W-L record. Causing plenty of trouble for him these past 20 innings are his 12 BB and 52 TB allowed which includes six HR. Houston even sent the righty down to Triple-A between his most recent starts but his last time out he was tagged for eight runs in five innings. With Joe Mauer scheduled to return tonight off of a successful 6-for-15 rehab stint, Minnesota’s lineup becomes more dangerous. Minnesota also welcomes former A’s starter Tommy Milone into their rotation tonight and the familiar battery of Milone-Suzuki figures to be a positive. Blind to the HP umpire at this time but should tonight’s balls and strikes caller Read more

MLB Handicapper Free Play: New York Mets at Philadephia Phillies

NY Mets (Wheeler) -122 at Philadelphia (Kendrick) O/U 8
Recommendation: New York


The key to pitching success these days is to miss bats and keep the ball on the ground and New York's Zach Wheeler has thrived at doing both over the last month. As a result, his ERA is down nearly a full run during that span. Overall, Wheeler ranks in the top 20 in groundball rate and K's per 9 innings -- an ideal profile for the National League as well as pitching in today’s locale, Citizens Bank Park. Philadelphia's Kyle Kendrick is the polar opposite of Wheeler -- doesn't miss bats (5.55 K per 9) and shows fly ball tendencies (44.9% GBs). And the Mets have had his number, touching up Kendrick for four runs in all three of his three starts. You probably wouldn't know it but New York has actually outscored its opponents this season -- the same run differential as second place Atlanta and a better R/D than St. Louis. That's not to say this is a good team but unlike the Phillies, at least there is Read more

San Diego (Stults) at Pittsburgh (Liriano) -160 O/U 7
Recommendation: Pittsburgh


After a rough start following a stint on the DL, Pittsburgh's Francisco Liriano has been absolutely dominant. His velocity is up and the arm action on his changeup is as good as I have ever seen it. Over his last four starts, Liriano sports a 1.44 ERA, 29-7 K-to-BB ratio, and 51 swinging strikes. Bottom line is he's a completely different pitcher than he was two months ago when his ERA was hovering around 4.50. San Diego's Eric Stults too has seen a slight uptick in velocity and thus performance but his margin for error continues to be small away from Petco Park. Stults' road ERA shows 5.78 and while PNC is favorable for lefties, the Pirates should be able to plate a fair amount of runs. While Arizona and Colorado have quit on their respective seasons, San Diego continues to fight (52-62, -23 run diff). However, the Pirates own a lot of advantages tonight including the most important one, starting Read more

MLB Handicapper Free Play: Baltimore Orioles at Toronto Blue Jays

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

Chicago Cubs (Arrieta) -120 at Colorado (Lyles) O/U 9.5
Recommendation: Chicago


This is a tale of two bottom feeder type squads headed in opposite directions here in August.  Colorado, for the fourth consecutive year, has fallen apart completely following the All Star Break.  The Rockies have lost five straight; just 4-15 in their last 19 ballgames.  That stands in sharp contrast with the Cubs, who have won six out of eight overall, including last night’s momentum boosting extra inning win here at Coors Field; their fourth win in five tries against Colorado this year.
 
Cubs ace Jake Arrieta allowed only a single run on three hits in seven innings of dominance against Colorado just last week.  This is neither new or different—Arrieta has been a quality start machine, throwing ten straight games where he’s allowed three runs or less while pitching for six innings or more.  Chicago might be 15 games under .500 overall, but Read more

MLB Handicapper Free Play: Cincinnati Reds at Cleveland Indians

Cincinnati (Cueto) +105 at Cleveland (Tomlin) O/U 7
Recommendation: Cincinnati


It’s not hard to make a case for betting against Josh Tomlin, even when he’s facing light hitting Cincinnati.  Tomlin was 3-2 with a 3.12 ERA in early June, but then the bottom dropped out, allowing four runs or more in seven of eight starts before getting sent back down to AAA.

His lone appearance in Columbus was mediocre, but now he’s back in the Indians rotation because they simply don’t have many attractive options.  Still working his way back from Tommy John surgery, Tomlin has been lit up in each of his last four starts here at Progressive Field; 0-3 with a7.77 ERA.  I’m not expecting a shutdown performance here, to put it mildly.

The Reds are 5-0 in Johnny Cueto’s five career starts against the Indians, and Cueto has a 2.10 ERA in those contests – a strong track record against this lineup.  Cueto is in stellar current Read more
