MLB: Aces collide in Phillies-Yankees matchup
2010-06-15

The three-game series between the New York Yankees and Philadelphia Phillies was always going to be intriguing. The pitching matchup in Tuesday night's opener at Yankee Stadium makes it even more so. Both teams will have their aces on the mound in this rematch of last year's World Series when the Yankees turn to CC Sabathia and the Phillies counter with a pitcher very familiar to New York in Roy Halladay. Oddsmakers at Sportsbook.com have installed the hosts as -130 favorites, marking only the second time in 22 starts that Halladay will pitch as an underdog.

The Yankees (40-23) ended a nine-year championship drought by beating the defending champion Phillies (32-29) in six games last year. New York prevailed despite being outhomered 11-6, with Chase Utley hitting five homers for Philadelphia.

Both teams made some key changes, with New York choosing not to re-sign World Series MVP Hideki Matsui and outfielder Johnny Damon. The biggest move was made by Philadelphia, which dealt Cliff Lee and acquired Halladay (8-4, 1.96 ERA) in a four-team deal in the offseason.

Halladay has been outstanding, pitching a major league-leading five complete games. He's dominated the Yankees, going 18-6 with a 2.81 ERA in 35 starts, including 8-1 with a 2.42 ERA in his last 10.

In his career, HALLADAY is 63-41 (+22.5 Units) against the money line when the money line is +125 to -125. The average score was HALLADAY 5.3, OPPONENT 4.2 - (Rating = 1*).

However, this is an interesting contradictory angle from FoxSheets:

• HALLADAY is 0-6 (-10.7 Units) against the money line in an inter-league game over the last 2 seasons. (Team's Record) The average score was HALLADAY 2.2, OPPONENT 4.8 - (Rating = 2*)

Sabathia is 1-3 with a 4.74 ERA in six career outings against the Phillies, including three in the postseason. His ERA in 2010 is a pedestrian 4.01 and he has given up 10 runs in 20 innings in his last three starts. The left-hander's last four victories have come against Baltimore, which he's beaten in each of his last two starts. He gave up two runs over seven innings in a 4-2 road win Wednesday.

This will mark the third time that Halladay and Sabathia (6-3, 4.01) have met. They split the first two meetings, with Halladay posting a 3.29 ERA and Sabathia a 3.07 ERA.

New York has won eight straight at home to move into a first-place tie atop the AL East with Tampa Bay.

It's been a different story for the two-time defending NL champions, who find themselves in third place in their division as losers of 14 of 20. The Phillies are last in the majors with 48 runs scored since May 22.

The Yankees will receive a boost if Alex Rodriguez returns after missing all three games against the Astros with a sore right hip. Girardi believes Rodriguez may play Tuesday.

The StatFox Power Line shows the Yankees at -131, almost identical to the actual price at Sportsbook.com, meaning there should be somewhat balanced action coming in on each team.




MLB: Top MLB Weekend Power Trends 4/23-4/25
2010-04-23

Major League Baseball touts a Apuestas Deportivas Online Bingo Online Bingo Rooms NFL Betting Picks full set of 15 series’ again this weekend, and a few divisional matchups along with some hot teams returning home will highlight the schedule. There figures to be a lot of intriguing betting opportunities over the next few days and I’m here to go over some of those. Of course, I will also reveal this weekend’s list of Top StatFox Power Trends to keep an eye on. Head over to the GAME MATCHUPS page for more key betting info.

In the American League this weekend, Tampa Bay will return home after a historic road trip in which it went 9-1 at three different stops. The Rays’ offense exploded for five or more runs in all but two games on the 10-game trip. For the next three days they will play host to Toronto, who is headed in the opposite direction. The Jays, after winning five of their first six games, are just 4-6 since, and trail division leading Tampa by 3-games in the East standings. Elsewhere, the Mariners, fresh off a 7-2 homestand, start a 6-game road swing in the Windy City, taking on the Sox. Chicago is in the midst of a 1-6 stretch in which it totaled just 17 runs. Seattle has closed to within ½-game of the West lead behind Oakland. Speaking of hot teams, two of them will meet in Los Angeles this weekend, with the Angels hosting the Yankees. The Halos have taken 11 of the L15 meetings between these teams in Anaheim and come in on a run of 5-2 in their L7. However, the Yankees have won nine of their L11 games and have yielded just 16 runs in their last seven.

In the Senior Circuit, the Cardinals, tied for the league’s best mark at 10-5, continue their West Coast road trip with a stop in San Francisco. The Giants have gone cold by losing their last four games but will send Tim Lincecum, Barry Zito, and Matt Cain to the hill in this 3-game set. In Milwaukee, the rivalry between the Cubs and Brewers will continue this weekend, with the hosts trying to extend an incredible stretch of hitting. Milwaukee has won four straight games, generating 47 runs on 57 hits in the process to climb to the top of the MLB ranks in runs scored per game at 6.5. At the same time, the Cubs are scoring just 3.0 RPG and batting .224 on the road, part of a 3-7 mark away from Wrigleyville. Chicago is 10-6 in Milwaukee over the last few seasons and did take two of three from the Crew in Chicago last week. Finally, in Cincinnati, the league’s hottest team in terms of winning streak, the Padres, put their 6-game stretch on the line at Cincinnati. San Diego hasn’t been on the road though since April 11th and has gone just 2-4 while hitting .218 away from home in 2010.

MLB: Top MLB Weekend Power Trends 8/14-8/16
2009-08-14

I’ve been talking about August being the month where the contenders separate themselves from the pretenders in baseball. Well, in 2009, that has certainly proved true, as only one of the divisions sees a second place team closer than 4-1/2 games to the lead, and the only real tight races right now are for the league wildcard spots. St. Louis and the Yankees in particular have really stepped it up and now enjoy nice cushions in their respective divisions. Of course, those teams, as well as the rest of the league will be in action this weekend as we reach the midway point of the month. Read on as we take a look at some of the key series’ and offer up our regular feature highlighting some of the Top StatFox Power Trends for you to consider in your wagering.

In the National League, the East Division takes center stage this weekend with the top three teams involved in influential matchups. The division-leading Phillies will go head-to-head with one of the teams trying to track them down, the Braves. Both clubs come in on winning streaks, the Phillies’ being three games, and the Braves having won five straight. In fact, Atlanta is playing some of its best baseball of the year right now and is fortunate to have this opportunity to cut into a 5-game deficit by taking on the defending champs head-to-head. Overall in 2009, the Braves own a 7-2 edge in the series, including a sweep at home at the end of June. Philly remains the best road team in baseball though, at 35-19 and comes in off a sweep in Chicago over the Cubs.

The other team still in the hunt in the N.L. East is Florida, who will have its sights set on both the division lead and wildcard lead over the next few days as it hosts current wildcard front runner Colorado. The Marlins trail by 3-games in that race and get their only chance to welcome the Rockies to Miami now. Florida took two of three in Colorado back in May. Both clubs are playing well in this series too, with the Rockies having won 10 of their last 14 games, and the Fish on a run of 6-1 in their last seven. During that seven-game stretch, Florida is scoring 7.6 runs per game while batting .330.

In the American League, there is really only one series of note, but it is a big one, as Boston travels to Texas. Those are the top two teams in the wildcard race and are separated by a mere ½ game. Unlike the teams focused on in the Senior Circuit, these clubs are scuffling a bit. The Red Sox are 3-7 in their last 10 games while Texas has only split its last 10. Making matters worse for the BoSox, they have gone 0-9 in the second half of this season on the road against teams with a winning record. At the same time, this is one of the bigger series’ for the Rangers all year, and they have a 7-1 record vs. good teams (54%-62% winning percentage) in the second half to fall back on.

Those series’ figure to have the most impact on the standings this weekend, but there are 12 other matchups available from a betting perspective, so be sure to visit the GAME MATCHUPS page each day for the latest key info. In the meantime, feast on these Top StatFox Power Trends that will be in play over the next few days.

MLB: Top MLB Weekend StatFox Power Trends 6/19-6/21
2009-06-19

Another full set of Interleague games is on tap for this weekend, and the American League is starting to distance itself from the Senior Circuit once again, as A.L. teams own a 67-58 record in the matchups to date. In fact, in one of the more unusual Interleague series’ this season, struggling Toronto just wrapped up a 3-game sweep in Philadelphia. Just a sign of the times I guess. Well, for this weekend, there are several intriguing matchups, including Milwaukee visiting Detroit in a battle of divisional leaders, as well as the renewal of regional rivalries between St. Louis and Kansas City and Dodgers-Angels. Read on for more about the action plus our regular look at some of the top StatFox Team Power Trends to consider in your wagering.

The series in Detroit is interesting not only because it pits divisional leaders against one another, but also because it is one of the few series’ where the N.L. team owns a better Interleague record to date. Milwaukee is 4-5 vs. A.L. teams in ’09, but only because it is coming off a sweep of the Indians in Cleveland. The Brewers’ bats exploded in that 3-game set, scoring 30 runs on 40 hits. Compare that to the Tigers, who hasn’t topped the 3-run mark in any of their prior seven games before Thursday’s 6-3 win in St. Louis. Detroit is 3-6 vs. the N.L. this season. This will be the first meeting between the former division rivals since ’07, when the Brewers took two of three in Detroit.

In Kansas City, the Royals and Cardinals, in-state rivals and regular Interleague foes, will get together for three games. The teams actually met just last month with St. Louis taking two of three at home, winning both games in 5-0 shutouts. The Royals will be looking for some improved pitching, as their staff was rocked by Arizona over the last two days for 24 runs on 31 hits. Keep in mind though that despite that series loss, Kansas City still owns a 18-9 record in Interleague play over the last two seasons, one of the better records in baseball. St. Louis meanwhile, is 18-21 over the last three seasons vs. A.L. clubs. The Cardinals currently trail Milwaukee by 1-1/2 game in the Central Division.

In Tinseltown, now that sports fans seem to be calming down from this past week’s post-Lakers championship celebration, the focus will be back on baseball, where the Dodgers will be visiting the Angels in a rematch of an exciting series played just weeks ago. The Angels took two of three in that set as part of what has been an 8-1 start in Interleague play. The Dodgers meanwhile are just 5-4 vs. A.L. clubs but still continue to lead the N.L. West Division by 9-games. Overall in this head-to-head series, the Halos have taken 10 of the last 15 games. Still, the Dodgers are the favorite for Game 1 of the series.

Elsewhere around the league, it will be Sunshine State vs. the Big Apple in two locales with the Mets hosting the Rays in New York, and the Yankees traveling south to take on the Marlins in Miami.

It figures to be another great weekend of baseball. Take a look at some key StatFox Power Trends you may want to consider when filling out your betting tickets.
