MLB Post Season Monday

How time fly. Didn't get to post much plays this season, but we have an interesting October scene. Let's look at home field advantage and how it's over estimated by moneyline measure. The opposition's ability to play ball at this level will not be rattled with raucous crowd.

St Louis Cardinals at Chicago Cubs
Is there an changing of the NL Central guards? The Cubs look really good surging at the right time with the right pitcher. Chicago back at home 1-1, sending Jake Arieta, best pitcher in second half 31 scoreless innings, has not lost since July 25th. Good thing happen for the Cubs when Arieta starts, but St Louis Cardinals with Michael Wacha starting is 12-5 better than 70% away. Wacha has been beat up lately, but post season is a different animal. Michael's been here he knows he just needs to keep his boys in striking distance. We roll with the Cards taking the Run Line.

Philadelphia Phillies at Washington Nationals
The Nats ride their season with highs and mostly lows. They beat the visiting Phillies just over 1 week ago in Philadelphia then returned home to take 3 out of 4 from Miami only to get swept by Baltimore in their following series. Philadelphia is back and Phillies hope to give some paypback. Phillies pitcher Jerad Eickhoff has been smooth in his last two starts. Trending better away. Washington sending Jordan Zimmerman. He is in a spot to improve and the Nats are 13-5 ijn his home starts. We're going to look for good pitching match up tonight.

Cleveland Indians at Minnesota Twins
We have an interesting pitching match up tonight with Salazar going for the Indians and Santana for the Twins. The books seem confused here with the Indians coming in as a road favorite. The Twins are falling, but thrives at .500 and Salazar on a bounce back may not be good enough against surging Santana. I wouldn't count too much on offense here, but Minnesota looks to be in the right spot at the right time.

You want to guess which game we're going with?

Boston Red Sox at Baltimore Orioles
Yes, yes, back to Camden Yards. Baltimore came out on top against AL Central leading KC Royals over this past weekend. The O's were the home underdog in that series, but the line moved the wrong waty throughout. Now welcoming the Red Sox the money has been moving with Baltimore since the opening. It moved from about -112 to high as -134 before pulling back. We don't see the advantage today. Kevin Gausman taking the ball has not factored in Baltimore's win since Aug.1st  He's pitching ok at home although the sample is small. He comes in after pitching a 1 run game in Bronx and with offense clicking there are high hopes However Gausman in a spot to decline and likely not factor in final decision. Boston's Eduardo Rodgriguez 3-3 on the road and the Red Sox are 3-4, but his performance has been quality away from Fenway. Boston 8-1 when opponent scores 5 runs or more in previous game and 6-2 coming off their game allowing 2 runs or less. Baltimore 2-7 in last 9 against left handed starter. 2-7 coming off a game allowing 2 runs or less, We're looking to take the win away at Camden Yards.

Boston Red Sox +130 for 1 unit(L)

New York Mets at Washington Nationals
Washington making an push. Coming off sweeping Atlanta and Max Scherzer started the first of four consecutive win streak. He's back for another round looking to log a win. He hasn't done that since July. Although the Nationals are on winning track winning the Atlanta series is not all that impressive  considering the Braves free fall. Max Scherzer, the key pitcher in Washington rotation, is bleeding money for backers and it does not get better at home.  Jon Niese is not blowing away opponents he has a losing record, but the Mets are giving him tons of support and New York is winning games with Niese on the mound. He's in a spot to improve and the Mets are on the hunt. Mets away in day game.

Baltimore O's at Toronto Blue Jays
Even with that dramatic win with a walk off in extra innings the Orioles are reeling. Toronto has their top money pitcher with Hutchinson and he is at his best at home. Jimenez road starts have resulted in 4-11 team record. On top of all this the O's are losing at RL while Toronto is killing it.

Tampa Bay Rays at Baltimore Orioles
Camden Yard games are one of my favorite. We look at Tampa coming in at  500, but in plus money. Pitching today is Erasmo Ramirez 10-5 who's record away is better with inflated ERA. Baltimore will go with Kevin Gausman trying to snap 4 game losing streak with O's going 0-5 in last 5. He's not pitching bad at home, but the results are 4-4. Ramirez 12-5 at current Total. 7-1 when opponent scores 2 runs or less in previous  game. Gausman 3-7 last 10 home starts and 3-13 on grass.
We're going to take the Rays

Toronto Blue Jays at Texas Rangers
Texas and L.A. are inches away in AL West, but neither one's able to take advantage as the Angels fall to Detroit and the Rangers to Toronto. We'll do it again with Yovani Gallardo taking the hill for Texas. Yovani posted two wins in a row with last win scattering 8 hits no runs, 4 K's and 1 BB in 6 innings at Detroit. Matter of fact Yovani starts have resulted in 5 wins out of last 6 for Texas. He has better than 66% win at home and he will need his A game today against the streaking Blue Jays. They are playing explosive baseball and they will send Marco Estrada who is better on the road than home. Marco is also pitching well and Toroto is the beneficiary of 4 wins out of last 5. Estrada looks to improve and the Jays are 5-2 in Estrada day games. Lay the favorite.

Kansas City Royals at Boston Red Sox
KC looking like it's in post season form. They may not score much, but they don't need to. The Royals back end is tops in MLB. The Red Sox are 12 games below .500 and sitting at bottom of AL East. Not only that Boston are losing more than 3 times as much as Yankees have won. Yanks being the top money team in AL East you would of won three times more by fading Boston. However past performance does mot guarantee a loss for Boston and today's money line is suspect as they come. KC's Danny Duffy is No#3 in Royals money win. He is rolling 5 quality in last 7 starts with Royals going 6-1 and Boston's Wade Miley starts have produced 1-6 record in last 7 Red Sox  games. Well Boston does play KC well and Miley's Fenway games have been quality. Duffy coming in on a spot to decline and Red Sox to take the opener.

Kansas City Royals and Cincinnati Reds
We got the Red coming home from a long road trip only to find themselves hosting the Royals on 8-2 run. Both teams were off on Monday and the Reds at home are better than .500, but they went through brutal road trip. Cincinnati will send rookie Cuban Raisel Iglesias who is not a rookie, but top tier Cuban relief pitcher being stretched out by the Reds and still a work in progress. He's coming off a win and confidence maybe growing. However KC with top money pitcher Edinson Volquez on a night to improve is a bit too much for the Cuban and the Reds.

Pittsburgh Pirates at New York Mets
We have a good one here f'ellas. The Bucks take the opener 3-2 behind JA Happ's 1 run effort ND and Colon was good too. The second game will feature Charlie Morton for Pittsburgh. The Bucks have won all three Morton's recent starts. He will go against Jon Niese for the Mets. Jon Niese is on a surge. Charlie holds the better record this season, but his 4-1 home record is mere 3-3 on the road. His last 7 starts have only produced 3 quality starts and he has gone 1-3. Niese is on the other side despite his losing record. Jon has pitched 6 quality starts out of his last 7 and the Mets have gone 5-2. Niese eating innings and he is 8 quality starts out of 11 at home. New York 13-6 at current ML. Heating up in August 10-3. New York in New York.

We got the Rox at Metropolitans ready to battle.

New York making a push toward September and somehow the Rockies are looking to giving them trouble. The Mets have owned the Rox and they have transformed their offense giving New York some punch. I do like the Mets to take game 1, but at 73% consensus picking NY this game is too close to "fade the public" play. Colorado taking Washington series, winners of last 3 out of 4, swinging hot bats. You know these two teams have another strong trend in going Under. However the Under set too low at 7. Over is pushing the Total and has broke though 7.5 still pushing Over. That's  interesting with match up resulting in 8 Unders. Maybe Rox Over 20-6 against winners or Mets Over 8-3 when Total is 7 ~ 8.5 and both teams putting up runs have the Cappers liking this pick.

Atlanta Braves at Philadelphia Phillies
It's a heated night at Citizens park. The Braves could not break through at Baltimore. The game we picked for them to win was a moose job giving up a walk off losing the lead. Atlanta has been sliding ever since and this game is continuing road trip adding to their woes. We're going to take the slight home dog Philadelphia.

Atlanta Braves at Baltimore Orioles
Playing this one at Camden Yards. The O's did a nice job on the road beating Detroit and Tampa series. They did lose to New York, but overall success. First game back hosting a National League team with ex-O Nick Markakis playing right field. Atlanta with pitcher Alex Wood on the hill has done well. The Braves lost the St Louis series at home, but played them tough and took the final game against one of Cardinals best, Michael Wacha. Before that they won the Dodgers series so Atlanta is heating. Baltimore coming in 6-19 run..When total is set at 7 to 8.5  Alex is 4-1 in last 5 and following a quality start he is 5-2 in last 7. Baltimore starter Kevin Gausman getting stretched out. I think the Braves will hit him. Gausman  1-5 as a favorite and with total at 7 to 8.5 record is 1-5 Also the Orioles are not good after scoring 5 or more. Taking the Bravos. Money line dropping.

Philadelphia Phillies at Chicago Cubs
Its the early game in Chicago's North side. We'll get another dose of Jake Arrieta going for his 5th straight win. Jake has been dominant with 2 runs or less in 6 straight starts. Phillies will send Cole Hamels who has been declining. Cole lasted just 3 innings against Miami and at San Francisco struggling both starts, but likely will improve here. Even with Cole competitive Jake Arrieta is the hot pitcher. Players will be on the Cubs, but this could be a good spot to catch Chicago off guard again. Philadelphia has matched up well in Wrigley and we have a generous ML for this game.
Take Philadelphia.

Minnesota Twins at Los Angeles Angels
The surging Angels continue their dominating home stand as they are perfect since the All Star break. LA won the opener 5-3 despite CJ's shaky outing and Minnesota's lack of execution will make this task more difficult with Garret Richards on the hill. The Twins will counter with Ervin Santana in his first return to the Big A He has been pitching well as of late, but these Angels are rolling and at home the Halos look to have the advantage.  However the Twins are money team very good in this type of situation. Santana holds great up side here where he honed his skills. Take Minnesota.

St Louis Cardinals at Miami Marlins
The Cards are going about their business going 7-3 in last 10.  Winning record at home and away showing little weakness. What is telling about a winning team is their ability to win the RL St Louis is 38-32 with positive money. The Cards come to Miami with 70% consensus money.  There are so much reasons to lay the favorite, but why is the money line so low? Jamie Garcia blanked Minnesota and Kansas City in last two starts. He's pitching second game away in a row.  Miami sending Matt Latos who's gone through struggles since returning. However Matt on home mound has been very good against the Cards 4-1. Since coming back from DL his velocity is increasing. Miami for 3 seasons have given St Louis tough games. Looking to back the small home dog ready and primed to take on the top team.

Houston Astros at Chicago White Sox
The Al leader showing difficulties playing high performance ball. They will send their top money pitcher and line is holding to Houston. I'm not sure if Dallas Keuchel will factor in the outcome. He is coming off a quality start, no decision team loss, and shut down these White Sox at home before that, but he has given up 4 runs in 3 out of last 6. Carlos Rodon lacking starts, but has been quality 4 out of 5 and good at home. We will fade the Astros.

Chicago Cubs at Miami Marlins
We got two good veteran pitchers on the mound with Lester and Haren. Chicago in the mix in NL Central. Their Ace is on his game. Lester is eating innings and has been on a roll. It seems road game has not slowed Lester and the Cubs. However Haren is also rolling and will be a force at home. Miami offense is heating and a decline spot for Lester. We like the home dog to hold on. Chicago does not seem inspired against losing teams on the road and the Marlins have faired well.

Houston Astros going with Collin McHugh, he too is 5 out of 8 quality starts and solid on the road. Something's going to give. We take the money team Houston, best road team in the Majors. Detroit is the second best road team, but not as tough at Comerica.  The Tigers offense is hitting, but not cashing in on too many games. We're going to back the Astros

The Yanks have also given up 25 runs in that span. On the home front we have lefty, Danny Duffy 2-2 with 5.67 ERA, lasting less than 5 innings in two games combined. He's not pitching to his expected level and probably will improve, but the Yankees have hit him.  Let's look for the Bombers bats to return as Sabathia will give up his share.

It's going to be a hot one in Phoenix today. There will be few clouds, little breeze and hot air, the ball will carry. The 8.5 Total is -125 or there about seems to be popular and so are the Nats. Maybe it's Jeremy Hellickson with 5.84 ERA and D-Backs losing 5 out of 6 Hellickson starts or maybe it's Gio Gonzalez being the top money starter for Washington and the Nationals own the Diamondbacks 7-2 in two seasons, 11-4 in three.

The Yankees get the consensus play, but N.Y. coming off series loss at Toronto showing little weakness in return to Bronx. Tillman in a bounce back spot looks to keep it close.

His team got a win last time out and he has been improving, I still don't trust Latos, not today following a quality start and not at home.

The Mariners have lagged to 7-10 record, subpar 5-6 at home and are in danger of losing this series to Minnesota. While the Twins send Kyle Gibson in a bounce back spot and Kyle has pitched well in similar situation, Seattle has a spot start with Roenis Elias and I don't see distance today.

Today Oakland will go with Jesse Hahn acquired from San Diego. He has a winning record from last season and seems to be a good fit for the A's rotation. He has the arsenal to strike out batters and though he' had a slow spring he can hold his own against any team. Seattle on this rubber match will send King Felix who has dominated this series. I think the runs will be hard to come tonight. We're going to roll with the Mariners and game going Under.

The situational play here is Baltimore as a short favorite. They have been excellent in bounce back spor after allowing 10 runs or more facing right hand pitching.

He comes to Arizona from Cincinnati Reds and if he commands his stuff the Giants will be in for some nasty pitches. For the Giants Ryan Vogelsong taking Jake Peavy's spot and he's no number 2 starter, a weak link for game 2. That's how we're rolling.

On the other side Oakland sending Kendal Graveman. He came from Toronto system and pitched for Mississippi State. He is a ground ball pitcher with good command winning a spot in Oakland's rotation. His power sinker in low 90's, slider, change and good cutter. We like this kid with baseball smarts, he's excelled at every stage of his professional game. With 21 inning of work he's 0.42 ERA and microscopic WHIP so far. Yeah, we think he'll baffle them Giants.

I like the Angels with Shoemaker already in good shape from his last two starts. His WHIP around 1.07 with 12 inning of work. He's on the mound at the Big A and will be a man on a mission against good Dodgers line up. The Dodgers are taking this  games with more of Spring training mentality than the Angels. It's Zack Greinke's  spot, but Mattingly's not ready. I'll back Scioscia who looks to simulate a regular game.

L.A. Angels -110 for 1 unit(W)
Don't you love it.

MLB 2015

Players! We are near starting and teams are making their final tune up. We passed on Spring Training games, but we're watching them like hawks. Right now the teams on top of odds are L.A. Dodgers, Washington Nationals, Detroit Tigers, Los Angeles Angels, Baltimore Orioles, Chicago Cubs, Maybe the last two doesn't belong as 14-1 odds. Out of this group Nationals looks strong, but we prefer the second tier group with Seattle at 15-1, St Louis Cardinals at 18-1, third tier teams Oakland A's at 26-1 and Mets at 30-1.

In the NL East the Nationals are overwhelming favorite. The numbers will show bias holding value to go against them on situation plays. Met's at preseason stage looks like a good underdog play, keeps your eyes on this team.

Similarly N.L. West has L.A. Dodgers as the favorite and they will also be a good team to go against. S.F. Giants has dropped down in odds significantly and they will be a team to watch, but the other teams, San Diego, Arizona and Colorado will come into choice plays. We like the Padres out of the three.

We'll catch up with the rest. Keep your eyes on the money ball.
