MLB: Hot betting system backs hot-hitting Sox
2010-07-29

The White Sox are white hot when playing in Chicago, no doubt about it. They have been almost unbeatable at home over the last cou Apuestas Breeders Cup ple of months, winning 16 of their last 17 games at US Cellular Field. On Wednesday, they’ll look to continue that surge when they play the third of a 4-game series versus the Mariners. Chicago is a -155 favorite according to Sportsbook.com at last check, and based upon a powerful StatFox betting system, should be listed at a much higher price. Let’s take a look at the game and the system.

No team has been better the last seven weeks than the White Sox (55-44), who are a major league-best 31-11 since June 9. They have gone from 9 1/2 games out of first place in the AL Central to a one-game lead on Minnesota.

Almost all of those 11 losses have come on the road, as Chicago has won nine straight and 16 of its last 17 at home.

Their dominance over the Seattle Mariners at U.S. Cellular Field extends back much further than that. In fact, with Tuesday’s 11-0 victory, Chicago improved to 25-7 at U.S. Cellular Field against Seattle (39-62) since 2004.

The last-place Mariners have lost 18 of their last 24 games.

Red hot Mark Buehrle (9-8, 3.96 ERA) will try to pitch the White Sox to their first 10-game home win streak since April 15-May 4, 2006. The Chicago ace started slowly this season, losing five straight decisions at one point, but has rebounded to go 6-2 with a 2.20 ERA in his last eight starts.

Buehrle is 6-0 with a 3.34 ERA in eight home starts versus Seattle.

Jason Vargas (6-5, 2.94) looks to continue his consistent pitching for the Mariners. He ranks among the top 10 in the AL in ERA and has produced quality starts in eight of his last 10 outings.

Tonight’s top betting angle comes straight from the FoxSheets Power Searches on a query titled “Current Season Situations With the Highest Winning Percentages”. It reads as follows:

Play On - Home favorites with a money line of -110 or higher (CHI WHITE SOX) - hot hitting team - batting .290 or better over their last 20 games against opponent with a hot starting pitcher- ERA less than 2.50 over his last 3 starts. (64-18 over the last 5 seasons.) (78%, +40.2 units. Rating = 4*)

The average money line posted in these games was: Team favored with a money line of: -131.9

The average score in these games was: Team 5.7, Opponent 3.3 (Average run differential = +2.4)

The situation's record this season is: (8-0, +8 units).

Over the last 3 seasons the situation's record is: (31-9, +18.9 units).

Since 1997 the situation's record is: (199-108, +43.3 units).

As you can see, this system is almost as hot in 2010 as the White Sox are at home. Chicago will put its own 9-game home winning streak on the line and look to give our feature system a 9-0 start when it goes head-to-head with Seattle starting at 8:10 PM ET.


MLB: Yankees open home slate as nearly 2-to-1 favorite
2010-04-13

On Tuesday, the 2009 World Series Championship will be celebrated by the New York Yankees to the 2010 home opener against the Los online bingo Angeles Angels, the team the Yankees defeated in the AL championship series. Heavy betting action on the hosts has seen the opening line at Sportsbook.com move 40-points to its current price of -195.

New York went on to beat defending champion Philadelphia in only the second World Series that spilled into November.

While four vets,Derek Jeter, Mariano Rivera, Jorge Posada and Andy Pettitte will be filling out a five of a kind more glittery than any in Las Vegas, Alex Rodriguez will be fitting his first finger for a ring, the culmination of a notorious but previously unfulfilled big league career that began with Seattle in 1994.

“I think he’ll have that feeling that he’s walking on air,” Yankees manager Joe Girardi said. “I’m really going to enjoy that smile on his face.” A-Rod and his pinstriped teammates are 4-2 to begin what they hope is another championship season and they are 21-5 after six or more road games.

Hideki Matsui, whose six RBIs finished the Phillies in Game 6, will be on hand at the second-year stadium—with the Angels, the team he signed with after the Yankees decided he was too old and too injury prone. Girardi said Matsui will look “funny to us in red.” Matsui has been the only Los Angeles batter to be productive and his new team is 37-16 in day games.

As the title returns to the Bronx for the first time since the flag was raised after the 2000 World Series championship, much is different. Across 161st Street, where old Yankee Stadium stood shrouded in dark screen last fall that resembled a funeral cloak, the old field of dreams mostly has been reduced to rubble. Only the right-field stands remain erect and awaiting demolition, overlooking the land where the first 26 titles were celebrated going back to 1923.

Players and coaches noticed when they arrived from Florida on Sunday night. Girardi said he was shocked. Now he wonders if the new ballpark will still be the launching pad that produced a major league-leading 237 home runs, 22 more than the most hit at the old stadium.

“I thought I knew what to expect until I looked next door and saw there wasn’t much of stadium there,” he said. “And now I don’t know what to expect. I don’t know if that’s going to change anything. I guess we’ll find out soon enough.”

Facing the division rivals, the New York offense looks every bit as dangerous as last year’s scoring six runs per game with an on-base percentage of .365. As per usual the Yankees have made the plays in the field and are 36-9 after three straight games where they committed no errors.

Pettitte is the starting pitcher for New York club that opened as -155 money line favorite and has been bet up to -195 with total of 10 at Sportsbook.com. In the last 12 years the lefty is 37-8 as a home favorite of -175 to -200. (Team's Record) Don’t expect a high scoring game either, since the Pettitte and the Yanks are 11-0 UNDER in April games over the last three years.

The Los Angeles offense has been stammering at 3.4 runs an outing and the bullpen has been horrific with 5.48 ERA, which includes two blown saves and allowing runs the starting pitchers left on base. The Angles will be severely test to improve on 39-22 record against left-handed starters and 11-6 mark as +150 or higher underdogs.

Ervin Santana is 5-2 in his career against New York, but hasn’t exactly fooled their hitters with 5.21 ERA and is 13-3 OVER on the road when the total is 10 or higher. (Angels Record)

First pitch is scheduled for 1:05 Eastern on the YES Network for some very satisfied (at least for today) home fans.

The StatFox Power Line shows Yankees -145, indicating a major overpricing by oddsmakers.


MLB Series Betting- Minnesota at Detroit
2009-08-07

For most of the season, the Minnesota Twins have been a floundering baseball club, not being good enough to run neck and neck with BMW Motorcyles Rental in Costa Rica Detroit in the AL Central, nor bad enough to hang out with Cleveland and Kansas City. This weekend in the Motor City, they will have chance to change people’s perception of them, including their own. The Tigers are a -170 betting line favorite at Sportsbook.com. Here’s a look at each game and predictions for the pivotal set.

The Twins (53-55, -7.8 units) have lost five of six and are undernourished 22-32 on the road, scoring 4.3 runs per game. Minnesota is in third place, 4 ½ games behind Detroit and knows the significance of turning season around quickly. “They’re all important when you’re chasing,” Minnesota manager Ron Gardenhire said. “It’s in our division and on the road. You don’t want to get too far behind or too far under .500.”

Detroit (57-50, +2.2 units) on the other hand has been a punishing home team. The Tigers are 34-17 at Comerica Park, which ties them for the fourth best home record with Tampa Bay and they are very profitable +12.4 units. Besides wanting to create distance between Central Division rivals, Detroit wants to get Armando Galarraga (5-10, 5.22 ERA) pointed in opposite direction. Galarraga has lost his last three decisions (Tigers have fallen five straight when Galarraga starts), having last won on June 30 against Oakland. "No pitcher in the history of the game can hide from the fact that you've got to throw strikes," manager Jim Leyland said in reference to his right-hander. "Every pitching coach talks about the same thing: Strike one. There's nothing new about that, but there's also a lot of truth to that.” Detroit is a -110 home favorite at Sportsbook.com with total of 9.5, with Galarraga and teammates 2-12 in night games.

Minnesota will counter with Anthony Swarzak (3-4, 4.25), who was among the pitchers torn up by the Los Angeles Angels last weekend. Swarzak is a rookie and though his numbers are not overly impressive, he’s 2-0, with 2.22 ERA pitching on the road in four starts (Twins 3-1). With Minnesota off a tough 2-1 loss yesterday at Cleveland, they are 8-0 after losing by a single run versus a division rival over the last two seasons.

Game 1 Edge: Minnesota

Saturday’s contest will have the Tigers as large chalk favorites and they come into this series 28-12 as a home favorite of -110 or higher this season. The main reason for being tagged with big number is because Jason Verlander (12-5, 3.29) is Detroit’s starting pitcher. Twins hitters don’t figure to have an easy time with hard throwing right-hander. Those swinging from the right side of the plate are batting only .223 against Verlander and he has 1.66 ERA this season in home games. Overall, Verlander and Detroit are 22-4 at Comerica against teams with losing records.

With Minny starting this series with 28-10 record after having lost five or six of their last seven games over the last two years, they will need Glen Perkins (6-7, 5.95) to do a 180-degree turn, after being shelled for season highs in runs (9) and hits (12) by the Halos. Perkins usually does a descent job once thru the batting order, but because he lacks an “out’ pitch, hitters are very comfortable the second or third time around. The only bright news is Perkins and the Twins are 10-4 when he hurls in Game 2’s. Totals players should be aware 10 of those 14 starts have gone OVER.

Game 2 Edge: Detroit

The scheduled Sunday afternoon pitchers are Scott Baker (9-7, 4.59) for Minnesota and Jarrod Washburn (8-7, 2.93) for Detroit. Baker was horrible to start 2009, but has emerged as Gardenhire’s ace since June. Baker is 7-1 since June 4, allowing three or less runs in 10 of his last dozen starts. Watch the money line on him since Baker and the Twinkies are 1-6 as underdogs.

Washburn was brought in to solidify Tigers staff and he suffered rocky first game wearing the “D” for a lid, giving up six runs in just over five innings against Baltimore in taking the loss. From pitching effectiveness perspective, he’s on pace to have career low ERA and could have his most wins since 2002 World Series season with the Angels (18). Left-handed batters are hitting only .184 against him, which could neutralize the M&M boys from Minnesota. Washburn is 4-2 in day games (team’s record) with 2.29 ERA and he’s on the right team with the Tigers 24-14 playing without lights.

Game 3 Edge: Detroit

Because our guest selectors have been performing so well with 4-0 record, we’ll bring in another, professional gambler named Sal to make the pick.

“It’s tempting to pick the Twins because they have won six of eight against Detroit and have winning record (11-9) at Comerica the last three years. Verlander will dominate Game 2 for Detroit. Game 1 is likely an Over with two pitchers that will be lucky to see the sixth (inning). I’ll give the Twins the nod in the opener. This brings it down to Sunday. As much as I like Baker right now, the Tigers play so well at home and the Twins stink as visitors. Washburn settles down with new club and Detroit wins the series.”

Sportsbook.com series odds: Minnesota +135, Detroit -170
