Some Tuesday MLB Helpful Information

Cardinals at Angels: What bettors need to know

St. Louis Cardinals at Los Angeles Angels (-125, 7.5)

Albert Pujols faces his former team for the first time when the Los Angeles Angels begin a three-game series against the visiting St. Louis Cardinals on Tuesday. Pujols, who signed with the Angels as a free agent last season after playing 11 illustrious years in St. Louis, has four hits in his last 34 at-bats and is hitting .249 with 13 home runs and 49 RBIs. The Angels have won six in a row, while St. Louis has lost six of its last eight.

Angels outfielder Mike Trout missed his first game of the season Sunday with a sore hamstring, but he’s expected to return for Tuesday’s series opener. Trout will likely start in center field while J.B. Shuck starts in left field after Peter Bourjos was placed on the 15-day disabled list Sunday with a fractured right wrist. Angels outfielder Josh Hamilton is showing signs of breaking out of his season-long slump, batting .273 with five RBIs in his last five games.

TV: 10:05 p.m. ET, Fox Sports Midwest (St. Louis), Fox Sports West (Los Angeles)

PITCHING MATCHUP: Cardinals RH Lance Lynn (10-2, 3.52 ERA) vs. Angels RH Jered Weaver (1-4, 4.15)

Lynn suffered his second loss last Wednesday against the Astros, allowing four runs in 7 2/3 innings. The 26-year-old right-hander has allowed four or more runs in three of his last four starts while posting a 5.84 ERA during that stretch. Lynn, who has never faced the Angels, is 1-1 with a 4.70 ERA in seven career interleague games (two starts).

After three straight shaky outings, Weaver pitched seven innings of one-run ball against the Tigers last Thursday. “We’re confident that he’s going to pitch more like he did today than the way he has in a couple of his last starts,” manager Mike Scioscia told reporters. The 30-year-old Weaver has a 13-4 record with a 2.61 ERA in interleague play.

TRENDS:

* Angels are 0-4 in their last four interleague games.
* Under is 5-0 in Weaver’s last five interleague starts.
* Under is 5-1 in Cardinals’ last six vs. a team with a losing record.

WALK-OFFS

1. Cardinals 1B Matt Adams is expected to return to the starting lineup Tuesday after missing Sunday’s contest with food poisoning.

2. Angels 2B Howie Kendrick is hitting .356 (58-for-163) since May 14.

3. The Cardinals are 18-9 in the first game of a series.

Jays, Pirates, Padres big movers in MLB futures

It’s hard to believe but we’re already halfway through the MLB season as the calendar flips to July.

Here are three teams that have drastically improved their futures odds with their stellar play in the last month.

Pittsburgh Pirates

Start of June: 25/1
Now: 15/1

The Pirates opened the 2013 campaign with 60-1 odds to win the World Series and their odds have improved slowly throughout the first half of the season. Pittsburgh caught fire in the month of June, posting a 17-9 record. The Bucs are riding a nine-game winning streak into a three-game set with the Philadelphia Philles beginning Tuesday.

Toronto Blue Jays

Start of June: 100/1
Now: 30/1

Much like the Pirates, the Blue Jays used a long winning streak to increase their stock in June. Toronto ripped off 11 straight wins throughout the middle of the month to get back to the .500 mark and become playoff contenders. Toronto was being dealt as high as 12-1 at some books before it cooled off towards the end of June.

San Diego Padres

Start of June: 50/1
Now: 30/1

The Padres are quietly putting together a very impressive campaign. The Friars opened the season with 100-1 odds to win the World Series and have peaked at 30-1 as of July 1. San Diego enters play Monday only 2.5 games back of the Arizona Diamondbacks for the NL West lead.

Marlins a good catch for bettors in June

The Miami Marlins and their backers had a fairly successful month of June as the squad posted a 15-10 record for the month and turned a profit for bettors.

Any $100 bettor would be up $1,033.54 if they had wagered on the Marlins in each of their June games.

The Marlins closed the month winning five of six and head into July on the heels of a Jeff Mathis walk-off grand slam to beat the San Diego Padres 6-2 Sunday.

Some solid pitching was key to the Marlins' successful June. The Miami staff ranked No. 5 in the National League with a 3.51 ERA for the month.
