MLB Handicapper Free Play: Colorado Rockies at San Francisco Giants

Submitted by Andrew Lange blog entry.
Colorado (Anderson) at San Francisco (Cain) -135 O/U 7.5
Recommendation: Over

Because of so many right-handed bats, San Francisco has really pound lefties so far this season: .289 BA, .488 SLG, and .862 OPS. In four games against southpaw starters the Giants pounded out 4, 8, 7, and 6 six runs. They face a very hittable one today in Colorado's Brett Anderson. Brett Anderson has thrown back-to-back 6 IP, 3 ER starts but his peripherals are very questionable. In 12 innings he allowed 15 hits and struck out only three batters. And of the 172 pitches he threw only six were swung on and missed. And in 39 plate appearances, righties are hitting .364/.997 vs. Anderson. Like Anderson, San Francisco's Matt Cain hasn't missed a lot of bats either with five strikeouts and 12 swinging strikes in two appearances. Overall we have two pitchers who are currently throwing to contact and with the ball having the tendency to carry a bit better during the day in AT&T Park, we'll take a look Read more

MLB Handicapper Free Play: New York Mets at Los Angeles Angels

NY Mets (Gee) at LA Angels (Skaggs) -160 O/U 8
Recommendation: Los Angeles

Did you notice the move towards LA's Tyler Skaggs off of the opener? That is the betting markets telling you just how much potential this kid has. A few more starts like what we saw out of Skaggs vs. Houston (8 IP 4 hits, 0 ERs) and enter the customary -175 and above price tag at home. We're not there yet and it was only one start against a poor hitting team, but at home vs. the Mets is another opportunity for him to thrive. Dillon Gee pitched well the back half of 2013 with a 2.77 ERA his last 11 starts. It coincided with an up-tick in velocity. That velocity has eluded him the first two starts of 2014 with his average fastball below 90 mph. Gee isn't a hard thrower to begin with but without being at the top of his game, it will be difficult facing an American League team on the road. I like that the Angels have placed more emphasis on defense and utilizing the shift more. And I also like the advantage LA Read more

MLB Handicapping: Angels focused on improving defense and scouting

04.10.2014     02:09 PM     Printer Friendly blog entry.
Nice to see a team talk about fixing a problem and then carry it out on the field. Last season, the Angels were not a good defensive team. From errors (112) to advanced metrics (RZR - 30th MLB) there weren't a lot of positives. This season, LA has put more emphasis on defense, particularly the shift – something we’ve seen them do on multiple occasions throughout the first two weeks of the season. So far, the numbers suggest they’ve been playing better than league average defense.

"What it is," general manager Jerry Dipoto said, "is building trust with what those numbers represent. And I think that's happened over time."

"We've always integrated numbers, used the data to suggest when we would switch defensively," Dipoto added. "I think this year we are more likely to shift in more situations. And sometimes subtlety, where you won't pick up on the shift because it's not overaggressive or widespread. We're not

MLB Gambling: For a third straight year the Minnesota Twins starting pitching is awful

04.10.2014     12:39 PM     Printer Friendly blog entry.
With so many seemingly "fringe" starters not only surviving but thriving in MLB, it is very apparent Minnesota is doing something wrong. It could be just bad luck (or poor decisions) in terms of draft picks and acquisitions but it also could be some sort of organizational philosophy. Heading into today, Minnesota's starters had the worse ERA in the American League at 6.43. And a few hours ago, Mike Pelfrey allowed six earned runs in five innings meaning that 6.43 is headed way north. Newly acquired Ricky Nolasco has allowed 10 runs in 10 innings. Phil Hughes remains a complete mess – a guy who for whatever reason decided to scrap his slider which many metrics pointed to as being his best pitch. Kevin Correria was torched in his first start (5.2 IP, 6 ERs). And Kyle Gibson has upside but still a ways from being a consistent performer. Because starting pitching accounts for a vast majority of game prices, the Twins are going to be big underdogs for much of the campaign. But as a bettor, do you trust any of those guys to go out and give you 6 innings and allowed 3 runs or Read more

MLB Handicapping: Is pitch framing the next big thing?

04.10.2014     08:40 AM     Printer Friendly blog entry.
Every year there seems to be a new sexy statistics that takes the MLB betting markets by storm. With starting pitching being so important these days, FIP and xFIP have a significant influence on how the markets bet a game. Moving forward, pitch framing could be the new craze. It has a lot more variables – an umpire can easily offset a catcher's ability to frame pitches. But overall, the difference between a strike and a ball can have a huge impact on the outcome of a game. According to FanGraphs, the Yankees are currently the best team in the league at "framing" or having pitches that were technically balls called strikes whereas the Cubs are the worst. The sample size is very small but Francisco Cervelli and Brian McCann are generally regarding as good "receivers." As FanGraphs points out, this is not an exact science but with enough data, we should start to see teams that benefit more than others from fringe calls.
