2010 ALCS Betting Odds and Preview
2010-10-14

Sportsbook.com Series Price: New York Football Live Betting Lines nfl football betting Online Bingo Online Bingo Rooms NFL Odds Yankees -180, Texas Rangers +160

The Rangers make their Championship Series debut Friday when they host the Yankees in Game 1. The game features a pair of left-handed starters in CC Sabathia (21-7, 3.18 ERA) and C.J. Wilson (15-8, 3.35 ERA). Both southpaws are coming off ALDS wins with Sabathia working around some trouble in a 6-4 Yankees win while Wilson was lights out, limiting the Rays to just two hits over 6.1 shutout innings. Sportsbook.com currently has New York as -145 favorites over Texas (+135) for Friday night’s game.

After much debate, the Yankees have decided to go with Phil Hughes (18-8, 4.19 ERA) in Game 2 and Andy Pettitte (11-3, 3.28 ERA) in Game 3. The much maligned A.J. Burnett (10-15, 5.26 ERA) is set for Game 4.

Texas will send Colby Lewis to the mound in Game 2 (12-13, 3.72 ERA) and go with Cliff Lee (12-9, 3.18 ERA) in Game 3. Tommy Hunter (13-4, 3.73 ERA) gets the nod in Game 4.

The Yankees and Rangers split their eight-game series this year, with Texas going 4-1 at home and the Yanks grabbing a three-game sweep in the Bronx April16-18.

Sabathia and Hughes have had tremendous success against this Texas lineup. Some significant numbers against Sabathia include Bengie Molina’s lifetime 1-for-19, Vladimir Guerrero’s 3-for-19 and Josh Hamilton’s 1-for-10. The 13 Rangers who have faced Sabathia are a combined 30-for-160 (.188 BA). Things are even worse for Texas against Phil Hughes. The Rangers are a paltry 3-for-38 against Hughes, with Michael Young and Jeff Francouer posting 0-for-7 marks against the right-hander. A.J. Burnett has held the Rangers to a .208 average while Texas hits Andy Pettitte at a .310 clip.

Nick Swisher and Derek Jeter have solid numbers against Texas’ projected starters, with Swisher going 6-for-20 against Wilson and 8-for-25 against Lee. Jeter enters the series 5-for-14 and 15-for-36 respectively. The opposite can be said for Alex Rodriguez who is just 1-for-13 against Wilson and a mediocre 6-for-22 (.273 BA) against Lee. Jeter is also the only Yankee to record a hit off Colby Lewis. Jeter is 3-for-5 with two HR lifetime while the other Yankees who have faced Lewis (Berkman, Posada, Teixeira) are 0-for-15

MLB: Final MLB Weekend Betting Trends 10/2-10/4
2009-10-02

The Major League Baseball season is down to its final weekend, and just one order of business remains to be settled before the postseason begins on Tuesday. With Colorado becoming the most recent team to clinch a playoff berth yesterday, only the A.L. Central representative has left to be decided. Detroit goes into the weekend with a two-game lead on Minnesota, with the clubs having just split four games this week in Motown. Read on as we go through the upcoming weekend series for each team and assess their chances at extending their season. Plus, we’ll cover the other intriguing action and release the top StatFox betting trends for you to utilize in your weekend wagering.

On paper, it would seem that the Twins have the better matchup this weekend, hosting Kansas City for three games. The Royals started making vacation plans for October a long time ago, and are 29-games below .500 for the season. They are also just 2-6 in their last eight games. The Twins are only in a position to stay alive for a postseason berth because of their success against division opponents, as they are 42-27 for +11.0 units in 2009 vs. A.L. Central foes. Included in that is a 9-6 mark against Kansas City. However, the Royals own a 4-2 series edge in the games at the Metrodome this year and pose a threat to the Twins playoff hopes if for no other reason than that ace Zack Greinke is scheduled to pitch on Saturday.

The Tigers aren’t exactly seizing control of the division and come into their weekend set against Chicago with a 3-4 mark in their L7 games. Detroit has been hitting well in that span at .279, but leaving a ton of runners on base, 8.3 per game. The White Sox hope to finish their season strong and continue where they left off a week ago at home versus Detroit, when they took two of three. They’ve been winning with pitching, as five of their last six opponents have been held t seven hits or less. Still, they are just 34-44 on the road in ’09, while Detroit boasts an impressive 50-28 mark at Comerica Park.

With a magic number of 2 for clinching the title, the Tigers can take care of business as early as Friday night or win out themselves by taking two of three from Chicago.

In the National League, the games may not mean a whole lot as far as who is getting into the postseason, but there is still an order of finish to be determined. The Dodgers, Cardinals, and Phillies are all within two games of one another as division winners. The best record of course, gets the top seed, however, Los Angeles cannot host Colorado in the divisional playoff round, so that matchup will fall to either Philadelphia or St. Louis. Currently, it would be the Phillies, as they are a game up on manager Tony Larussa’s club. Philly hosts Florida this weekend, while the Cardinals wrap up the regular season at home against Milwaukee. The Dodgers meanwhile, will still try to wrap up home field advantage for the N.L. playoffs by taking care of business vs. Colorado.

Now, here’s a look at those top betting trends for the final weekend of the season. Good luck.



MLB Series Betting- Tampa Bay at Kansas City
2009-07-21

The Tampa Bay Rays start the second half of the season believing they can play much better baseball then they did most of the first half of the year. The Rays (48-41, -0.7 units) trail the New York Yankees by four losses in the wild card chase and Boston by seven for the AL East division lead. In some ways, Tampa Bay feels fortunate they are still within reach of the postseason after floundering at or below .500 for the first two months of the season. "We didn't play nearly our best baseball," Rays manager Joe Maddon said. "We did at times, but a little bit too streaky."

One area that needs immediate shoring up is Tampa’s play on the road. They Rays are 18-26 (-7.8) and the skipper thinks his team is capable of turning this around. “We just have to get out there in the second half. We have to take advantage and not make the same kinds of mistakes that put us in a bind in the first half. We're capable of that. We're capable of playing a higher level of baseball on a more consistent basis." Maddon said.

Kansas City (37-51, -13.9 units) starts the second half having lost five of six and in search of winning formula from last September that fueled this season’s optimism. The Royals first order of business is finding ways to score more runs. Kansas City ranks 28th in runs scored at 3.9 per game and hopes Alex Gordon can provide offensive punch coming off of hip surgery.

Because ace Zach Greinke (10-5, 2.12 ERA) only pitched one inning in the All-Star game, Royals manager Trey Hillman moved him up to start the series. Greinke hasn’t been quite as effective as he was early in the season, when he was un-hittable and has lost his last two starts, though the 3-1 loss the last time out was in part due to shabby K.C. defense. The Royals are -120 money line favorites at Sportsbook.com, with total 07. Greinke and the Royals are 16-6 when the money line is +125 to -125 and 18-6 UNDER in the second half of the season.

Tampa Bay will counter with James Shields (6-6, 3.42), who is 2-4 on the road, with the Rays winners only twice in his eight starts as visitor. The Rays are off a pair of losses, but have enjoyed great success on Friday’s with 29-11 mark. Shields’ has liked the look of Royals uniform and is 5-0 with a 2.50 ERA in five career starts against Kansas City. He’s averaged nearly a strikeout per inning against K.C. (32) in the 36 innings he’s worked, while allowing just three free passes. The Rays are 14-3 UNDER July in road games since last year.

Game 1 Edge: Tampa Bay

Because of the shifting of Royals rotation, Brian Bannister (6-7, 3.66) is expected to be the starter for Game 2. Bannister is off arguably the best game of his career, throwing seven shutout innings at Boston before tiring slightly in allowing one run on three hits in over 7 2/3 in 3-1 triumph. Coming into the series, Kansas City had won only three of last dozen contests at Kauffman Stadium. The Royals are 4-1 in Bannister’s home starts against winning teams and 6-2 if favored.

Only staunch baseball bettors might know this, Tampa Bay’s offense ranks third in baseball at 5.3 runs per game. Besides pounding out 9.3 hits per game on average, the former Devil Rays have newfound patience as the dish, walking 4.1 times per game, which is third best in baseball, just behind the Yankees and Red Sox. The former masthead of the Rays staff, Scott Kazmir (4-5, 7.11) will take the ball for middle encounter. Since being injured, the lefthander has not been effective, but at least pain-free. Having last won on May 9, Kazmir hopes pitching in a Game 2 situation will turn luck around since he and his teammates are 22-5 in that spot.

Game 2 Edge: Kansas City

The series finale will be afternoon affair. The Rays are 16-13 playing in the light of day, with Kansas City unsightly 12-19. Matt Garza (6-7, 3.73) is one of the American League’s biggest enigmas. Only a handful of hurlers have his stuff, yet he finds a way to have one bad inning and has losing record. He’s 0-4 with 4.02 ERA against K.C. The Royals will send Luke Hochevar (5-3, 5.34) to toe the slap. Since returning in early June for stint in minors, Hochevar has pitched up to his capabilities, with 5-1 record and 3.97 ERA. Besides the quality record, he’s been innings-eater with six of last seven starts lasting as least six innings.

Game 3 Edge: Kansas City

Thought this was a good week to change it up and go with a few teams that don’t receive much of the acclaim. The matchup is very close, but Tampa Bay has poor road record and two of its starters in this series are fumbling along, not pitching well. Similar to a thin slice of pastrami, I’ll support the Royals by the slimmest of margins.
Sportsbook.com series odds: Tampa Bay -125, Kansas City -105
