Braves are 11-0 in their last 11 home games.... Everyone seems to be cray about Dan Haren's last-out win over Angels--but he was miserable the five games previous, losing them all. (Even a blind squirrel finds an acorn every now and then.) Of course, the Braves' starter, Mike Minor, has been a train-wreck lately, too. Still, I think odds favoring Braves (-126) might be a tell.
Since I live inSoCal, I pay partic attention to locals, and I have to smirk at C.J. Wilson being -200 at home vs. Phils tonight--and I don't even know how Phillies have been doin' ately. But CJ has been downright Double-A the last month--just hideous. (I'd suggest he focus more on pitching than his nasty TV ads.)
Plus, the Halos have gone majorly south since they dropped 3 of 4 to the Dodgers. I can smell at least 1.5+ plus on Phillies, and I wouldn't touch Haren with a 10-foot-pole never mind buy his dandruff goop. Just saying.
P.S. Who else thinks Oakland and Lester are too much of a slam-dunk. Yes. he's been CyYoung-worthy since joining A's and even beat Royals twice since his move, but other guy on bump, Guthrie, ain't no bottom-feeder, just threw his first CG, and the Royals have won 8 in a row and are playing in their friendly confines--still miss Harry Caray! Can you smell a trap-ola?....
Stay thirsty, my friends! Remember, The Most Int. Man has never said, "My bad." (Maybe I will later tonight, but I got to give my two cents--I still have $3.26 on me--and hoping for more if my instincts come through!)
Verlander is 22-2 with a 2.56 ERA in 29 career interleague starts, including an 11-0 mark and 1.78 ERA in the last 13.He's never lost to an NL team in Detroit, going 13-0 with a 1.83 ERA in 14 starts, and owns a 1.23 ERA in winning his last six at Comerica Park.
But, on the other hand, the Dodgers' starter Ryu, 6-1, has a 1.62 ERA in eight road games. The left-hander is 3-3 with a 4.66 ERA in eight home starts.The Tigers have won 13 of their last 15 interleague home games, while the Dodgers have won nine of 10 on the road against AL teams. Pick this one at your own peril!
Stay thirsty, my friends, and if you'dead-set on taking an LA team, go with the Angels, who are shooting for a record 15th straight home win.
Coincidentally, I posted on June 1 that the Sun was 11 and 0 Over at home. They were hosting the Dream that night.
The highly affable Mugsy B quickly rang in that such a trend should not even be considered since the Sun was a shell of the team of past years. Well, of course, Connecticut/Atlanta went way Over, and the hopeless Sun mugged Atlanta to boot.
No knock on Mugsy; he knows his s---, and I'm not that big on trends unless there's a 0 on one end. Then I gotta go with the trend until the 0 is replaced with a 1--especially when the number other than 0 is large, like 11. Stay thirsty my friends.
the total has gone over, and the Dream has gone over 5 of last 6 games vs. Eastern Conf. For what it's worth; stay thirsty, my friends.
Acc. to Covers, "The Angels are a
remarkable 10-1 in their last 11 games against the A's with Weaver
Under bettors can rejoice as well because
Weaver's domination of the A's shows up on the scoreboard too. In the
past 11 starts against the A's, Weaver has allowed only eight runs and has
pitched at least 7.0 innings on eight occasions. Weaver has only given
up an average of 5.7 hits per game and .7 runs per game in that
stretch....Predictably, the Halos and the A's have gone under in 20 of Weaver's past 26 starts.... "For what it's worth; stay thirsty, my friends!
