MLB teams with the biggest betting home/away split
------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

For a handful of major-league teams, game location has played a significant role in their early-season fortunes. Some clubs are off to incredible starts at home but have struggled to maintain that momentum on the road. Others have succeeded away from their own stadium but have disappointed the locals.

Here are five teams with the largest home/road splits (units in parentheses):

Milwaukee Brewers (+32 at home, +978 on road)

Bet you didn't see this coming. The Brewers have been the major leagues' road warriors, becoming the first team to win nine of its first 10 games away from home since the 1994 Atlanta Braves. The offensive numbers - Milwaukee is batting .306 with a league-best 60 runs and 15 homers in 10 road games - are too good to sustain, and Milwaukee's next seven road games are against division power St. Louis and formidable Cincinnati.

Miami Marlins (+481 at home, -631 on road)

The Marlins are doing exactly what's expected of most major league teams, triumphing in their own stadium while scuffling on the road. Miami's splits are more pronounced than the others, with a 9-4 record at Marlins Park and an 0-6 mark everywhere else. Apparently Miami's pitching staff enjoys the comforts of home, posting a 2.54 ERA in 117 innings in Miami, good for fifth-best in the league, but a 6.16 ERA outside Florida which ranks second-worst.

Los Angeles Dodgers (-142 at home, +500 on road)

Fans supporting the team with the highest payroll in the majors probably wouldn't mind seeing more victories in their home park. Los Angeles has scuffled to a 4-4 home record but has thrived away from Dodger Stadium, posting an 8-3 mark with a 2.35 ERA that ranks second in the majors. The Dodgers have a great chance to pad their home record this week, welcoming the Philadelphia Phillies for four games before facing Colorado in a three-game set.

New York Mets (-290 at home, +479 at home)

New York has brought great woe to Citi Field so far in 2014, winning just three of its first nine games there while posting a 6-3 mark on the road. The home struggles can be explained, at least in part, by an opening schedule that includes series against Washington, Philadelphia and Atlanta. Add in the fact that the Mets caught the host Arizona Diamondbacks in the throes of a terrible slump, and the early-season wins disparity makes even more sense.

Detroit Tigers (+304 at home, -173 on road)

The defending Central Division champions racked up 51 home wins last season and are well on their way to repeating the feat, winning seven of their first 10 games at Comerica Park. That hot home start has masked a sub-par road showing, with the Tigers going 2-3 - a stretch that includes two one-sided losses to lowly San Diego. Detroit has eight straight games against divisional opponents beginning Friday. It went 47-29 against the AL Central last year.

Game of the Day: Phillies vs. Dodgers
------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Philadelphia Phillies vs. Los Angeles Dodgers (-170)

Cole Hamels makes his season debut Wednesday when the visiting Philadelphia Phillies aim for their fourth straight win against the Los Angeles Dodgers, who are struggling offensively after a strong start. The Phillies moved to 10-10 overall with Tuesday’s 3-2 win in 10 innings and are hoping Hamels can provide a much-needed boost to the team’s starting rotation. Hamels, who landed on the disabled list with left biceps tendinitis, pitched at least six innings in 28 of his 33 starts last season.

The Dodgers received a scare when second baseman Dee Gordon left Tuesday's game after hitting his head on Jayson Nix’s knee on a steal of third base, but he passed a concussion test and could be available Wednesday. Shortstop Hanley Ramirez is 2-for-20 since being hit on the left hand by a pitch from the Giants’ Ryan Vogelsong, but manager Don Mattingly doesn’t appear concerned. “He’s not swinging the bat like a guy whose hand is hurting,” Mattingly told reporters. “He’s just a touch off.”

TV: 10:10 p.m. ET, CSN Philadelphia, SportsNet LA

LINE HISTORY: The Dodgers open as -170 home favorites.

POWER RANKINGS: Phillies (-111), Dodgers (-190)

INJURY REPORT: SP Cole Hammels - probable Wednesday (arm).

PITCHING MATCHUP: Phillies LH Cole Hamels (2013: 8-14, 3.60 ERA) vs. Dodgers RH Zack Greinke (3-0, 2.42)

Hamels pronounced himself ready after going 0-1 with a 2.12 ERA in three rehab starts covering 17 innings with Class A Advanced Clearwater. “I was able to go down there and get everything accomplished, my strength, building up pitch count and really try to execute pitches to both side of the plate,” Hamels told mlb.com. Adrian Gonzalez is 8-for-27 with two homers against the 30-year-old, who is 3-0 with a 2.22 ERA in four career starts at Dodger Stadium.

Greinke has been a model of consistency over his first four starts, and he’s gone 10-1 with a 1.71 ERA in his last 15 starts since Aug. 5, 2013. The 30-year-old recorded eight strikeouts for the third straight start against Arizona on Friday, when he allowed one run on three hits over six innings. Marlon Byrd is 3-for-20 with seven strikeouts against Greinke, who is 3-1 with a 2.45 ERA in four career starts against the Phillies.

TRENDS:

* Under is 5-0-1 in the last six meetings.
* Phillies are 6-0 in Hamels' last six starts vs. a team with a winning record.
* Dodgers are 0-6 in their last six home games vs. a left-handed starter.
* Under is 6-1-1 in Dodgers last eight overall.

CONSENSUS: 74 percent of wagers are on the Dodgers.

Hamels to get first start against swinging Dodgers

The Philadelphia Phillies are finally getting ace Cole Hamels in their rotation Wednesday. Hamels, who started the season on the disabled list, will get his first start against the Los Angeles Dodgers.

The Dodgers are fairly average in every major batting statistics, except one. The Dodgers currently have the most strikeouts in the major's this season with 187 in 687 plate appearances in their first 20 games. That means that a little more than 27 percent of the Dodgers plate appearances are SO.


Orioles' 3B Machado to begin rehab assignment

Baltimore Orioles' third baseman Manny Machado is scheduled to begin his rehab assignment Friday at the club's single A team in Frederick.

Machado, who is recovering from surgery to repair a ligament in his left knee last October, played in his third extended spring training game Tuesday and will play one more game in Sarasota, Fla., on Wednesday before joining the Single-A squad.

Unhittable Harang on the mound for Braves

The Atlanta Braves have the best collective ERA in the major's (1.52) despite having serious injury concerns on the mound and have found a major revelation in Aaron Harang.

Harang has the second best ERA in the MLB sporting a ridiculous 0.70 through four games, including bringing a no-hitter into the seventh inning into two of his starts this season. Harang has also held opposing hitters to the lowest batting average of anyone in the MLB (.110).

Harang and the Braves are -149 favs to top the marlins (+137) Wednesday.
