Kershaw looks to pitch L.A. past Philly Monday

LOS ANGELES DODGERS (33-21)

at PHILADELPHIA PHILLIES (28-27)


First pitch: Monday, 7:05 p.m. EDT
Line: Los Angeles -120, Philadelphia +110, Total: 7

The slumping Dodgers (1-6 in past seven games) will put the majors’ best record on the line Monday, when they begin a four-game set with the Phillies who sit above .500, but are still in last place in the NL East.

Reigning NL Cy Young award winner Clayton Kershaw has not disappointed in the 2012 campaign with a 2.42 ERA and 1.00 WHIP, registering 64 strikeouts and just 19 walks. In seven starts, his less proven opponent Vance Worley is also off to a good start with a 3.07 ERA and 3:1 K-to-BB ratio. He has been hittable, however, with a 1.34 WHIP and his numbers get worse at home with a 3.79 ERA and 1.42 WHIP at Citizens Bank Park. Worley hasn’t pitched since May 11 due to an inflamed elbow. Kershaw has an 0-5 record in his career against the Phillies, sporting a poor 5.73 ERA and 1.49 WHIP. But he did not face them all of last season and in his two 2010 starts against Philadelphia he allowed just two runs in each start. And it is quite fair to say Kershaw is a far improved pitcher than he was a few years ago. Worley started against the Dodgers once in his career, yielding six earned in four innings last August for a 13.50 ERA and 2.50 WHIP. Given how elite of a pitcher Kershaw is, it is surprising the Dodgers are only slight favorites. The Phillies are a weak home team at 12-15 (.444), so they should not receive help just for playing at Citizens Bank Park. Play on LOS ANGELES to win.

This FoxSheets trend also favors the Dodgers:

Play On - Road teams when the money line is +125 to -125 (LA DODGERS) - after 3 consecutive games versus a division rival, playing on Monday. (112-73 over the last 5 seasons.) (60.5%, +43.3 units. Rating = 2*).

Star Matt Kemp is injured once again for the Dodgers but they have demonstrated no trouble winning without him this season. They’ve lost six of their past seven games, but that included losing both games Kemp played. In the middle of May, they rattled off a six-game winning streak without him. The offense has certainly been weak lately with just 3.3 runs per game over their past nine contests, but they are hitting the ball well during this stretch (.274 BA, .349 OBP) with double-digit hits in six of those games. Eventually those hits will turn into more runs and their luck will even out. L.A. is 7-4 with Kershaw on the mound this season, and 27-10 (.730) with Kershaw starting in the past two seasons when the total is 7 or less. Play on the Dodgers behind their ace to win.

History favors the Phillies in this series who are 9-3 versus the Dodgers over the past three seasons, including 4-2 in Philadelphia. Before Worley’s injury, he carried a 2.81 ERA and 35 K in 32 IP over his previous five starts. And for his career, Worley is 8-3 with a 2.61 ERA and 1.14 WHIP when pitching at Citizens Bank Park. A good sign for him is that the Phils are slowly improving their batting statistics, now ranking fifth in the majors in batting average at .268. Even with their one run on Sunday, the team has scored 5.0 runs per game in their past 11 contests. The Phillies have just 46 home runs on the season though (21 at home), and need to start taking more advantage of the bandbox in Philadelphia so they develop a better home record. Until they prove they can do that, play against.

Monday's betting tips: Devils-Kings on under roll

Weather to watch

Chicago Cubs at San Francisco Giants – A 17-mph wind will be blowing out to left-center at AT&T Park Monday afternoon. There’s a 40 percent chance of showers, with temperatures hovering in the mid-50s.

Who’s hot

NBA: OKC is 20-6 ATS in its last 26 games as an underdog of 5.0-10.5 points.

NHL: The under is 6-0-1 in the last seven Devils-Kings games.

MLB: The Dodgers are 6-0 in Clayton Kershaw’s last six starts vs. winning teams.

MLB: The D-Backs are 7-2 in Joe Saunders’ last nine starts vs. losing teams.

Who’s not

NBA: The under is 2-6 in the last eight Thunder-Spurs games.

NHL: The Kings are 0-7 in their last seven games as a favorite of -151 to -200.

MLB: St. Louis is 5-16 in Kyle Lohse’s last 21 road starts vs. winning teams.

MLB: Texas is 1-10 in Scott Feldman’s last 11 starts vs. AL West teams.

Key stat

49.7 – That’s the percentage of baskets that the Thunder had assists on during the regular season, an NBA low. But in Game 4, OKC assisted on 27 of 44 field goals (61.3 percent). Kevin Durant dished out eight assists, his most since April 9. Game 5 is Monday night in San Antonio.

Injuries that shouldn’t be overlooked

Brewers left fielder Ryan Braun and third baseman Aramis Ramirez got the day off Sunday to rest minor injuries. Ramirez strained his left quadriceps on Saturday, and Braun is dealing with a tight right Achilles. Milwaukee is off Monday, and it’s unclear whether the team’s Nos. 3 and 4 hitters will play in Tuesday’s opener against the Cubs.

Game of the day

Oklahoma City Thunder at San Antonio Spurs (-5, 202.5)

Notable quotable

“It’s embarrassing the way we play on the power play. We think it’s going to be easy, but we have to work, we have to be sharp.” – forward Ilya Kovalchuk, whose Devils trail the Kings 2-0 heading into Monday’s Game 3 of the Stanley Cup Finals. New Jersey is 0-for-6 with the man advantage in this series after going 3-for-23 in the conference finals against the Rangers.

Notes and tips

Braves catcher Brian McCann, who was hit in the left knee by a Jonny Venters wild pitch on Saturday, sat out Sunday but hopes to return to the lineup following Monday’s off day. The All-Star is having a subpar season, hitting .248 with seven homers and 28 RBIs.

Red Sox second baseman Dustin Pedroia (thumb) plans to be back in the lineup Tuesday, wearing a molded plastic brace under his batting glove. Boston is off Monday. Pedroia is hitting .295 with five homers, 21 RBIs and 30 runs scored.

Blue Jays DH Edwin Encarnacion left Sunday's game after being hit on the right hand by a Daniel Bard pitch. X-rays came back inconclusive. Encarnacion is hitting .279 with 17 homers and 42 RBIs. The Blue Jays are off Monday before opening a series at the White Sox on Tuesday.

Armadillo: Monday's six-pack

Phil Steele's college football magazine is out; lot of great info in there for the coming season. Here are the six teams that lost the most starts to injuries last season.......

6) Colorado State 52-- Brought in Alabama's OC to fix this 9-27 mess.

5) Toledo 53-- Old coach bolted to Illinois; lost 14 of 22 starters.

4) Oregon State 54-- Played ten true freshmen LY, usually a good sign.

T2) Ohio State 55-- Meyer has nine returning starters on defense.

T2) Boston College 55-- Working with 4th OC in last 13 months.

1) Maryland 59-- 2-9 last season despite a +4 turnover ratio.


*************


Armadillo: Monday's List of 13: Wrapping up a sports weekend..........

13) Home teams are now 8-0 in this round of NBA playoffs; Miami closed as a 2-point favorite Sunday night, so betting favorites' 20-game straight-up winning streak came to an end.

Rajan Rondo has 77 points, 35 assists in his last three games.

12) Comedian Bill Maher likes to bust peoples' balls on his TV show, but as a new minority investor in the Mets, he has given significant money to owners of the Mets, the hideously creepy Wilpons. This is where your right to be a ball buster ends, when you act stupidly yourself.

11) New Jersey Devils are in Los Angeles for Game 3 of the Stanley Cup Finals, the first time they've left the eastern time zone since January 14; its the first time they've been on an airplane since May 8.

10) Rickie Fowler was paired with Eldrick Woods Sunday, and responded by shooting 84. Not good to wear bright orange and hack around like that.

9) Daniel Bard became the first pitcher in the last 90 years to walk 6+ guys and hit two more in less than two innings on the mound, wrapping up one of the worst weeks of fantasy baseball I've ever had. Hard to imagine Bard staying in the rotation; he might not even stay in the big leagues.

8) Then there are my Oakland A's, the first major league team since 1954 to get shut out 11+ times in their first 54 games. Maybe they should make a movie about that. Moneyball II, only this time, don't bash Art Howe.

7) Rangers have allowed 26 unearned runs in their last 30 games, part of why they're struggling. A visit to Oakland this week should help them.

6) Angels traded for reliever Ernesto Frieri on May 3; since then, batters are 1-41 against Frieri, with 10 walks and 25 strikeouts. 1 for freakin' 41. By the way, the Halos are now only 4.5 games behind Texas in AL West.

5) In case you were wondering, the odds of flopping four of a kind after being dealt a pocket pair: 407-1. Now you know.

4) Bruins' goalie Tim Thomas is sitting out next season, forfeiting his $5M salary, to deal with "friends, family and faith". $5M still counts against the Bruins' salary cap for next season.

3) Florida State's first two football games this fall are against Murray State and Savannah State; seriously? If this was basketball it would be OK, with Murray State being good, but for a football power, this is a joke. Would it be that horrible to schedule some cruddy Sun Belt team or a MAC squad?

2) Pitcher Carlos Zambrano is a .237 career hitter who hit his 24th homer on Sunday. Only 10 walks with 237 strikeouts, though.

1) David Wright isn't going to negotiate with the Mets during the season, but the word is he's going to ask for eight years, $150M; wonder how much Bill Maher is going to kick in towards that?

Public opinion: Bettors see another West finals shootout

Odds and consensus percentages current as of 8 p.m. ET, Sunday.

NBA:

Oklahoma City Thunder at San Antonio Spurs (-5, 202.5)

This series has alternated unders and overs, but the over hit six times in a row in the OKC-San Antonio meetings leading up to the conference finals. No one expects the Thunder's big men to shoot 22-for-25 again, but it's clear the Spurs are in a defensive quandary. They either let the big men shoot open jump shots or watch Kevin Durant, Russell Westbrook and James Harden go off. An overwhelming percentage of Covers users are on the over.

Consensus: Over, 70 percent


NHL:

New Jersey Devils at Los Angeles Kings (-158, 4.5)

The Kings have shut out the Devils' power play so far, leading to a pair of overtime wins in New Jersey. Now Staples Center will be rocking as Los Angeles nears the first Cup championship in franchise history. The price might be steep, but bettors are backing the Kings. They have not fallen behind in eight of their last 10 playoff games.

Consensus: Kings, 57 percent


MLB:

Los Angeles Dodgers at Philadelphia Phillies (110, 7)

It's scary to go against the Dodgers' Clayton Kershaw, but the Phillies' Vance Worley is no slouch either. Worley was just activated from the DL and is making his first start since May 11. He'll be pitching in front of the team's 232 consecutive regular-season sellout. In six career starts against the Phils, Kershaw is 0-4 with a 5.18 ERA.

Consensus: Phillies, 58 percent

Monday's streaking and slumping starting pitchers
------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------


Streaking

Jarrod Parker, Oakland Athletics (1-2, 2.88 ERA)

The 23-year-old right-hander has allowed one earned run over his last two starts covering 13 innings, but continues to get little run support. Batters are hitting .228 against him. In six of his seven starts, Parker has given up two or fewer runs.

Ryan Vogelsong, San Francisco Giants (3-2, 2.36 ERA)

The 34-year-old right-hander has given up just four homers all season, and is coming off a strong seven-inning performance against Arizona. Vogelsong allowed one run on six hits, striking out eight. Batters are hitting .222 against him this season. However, he’s 3-5 with a 6.19 ERA in 14 career appearances against the Cubs.


Slumping

Christian Friedrich, Colorado Rockies (3-1, 5.59 ERA)

A 24-year-old rookie southpaw, Friedrich has been tagged for 16 earned runs over his last three starts. Batters are hitting .314 against him. He’s allowed 38 hits in 29 innings, and carries a WHIP of 1.59 into Monday’s start in Arizona.

Scott Feldman, Texas Rangers (0-3, 4.50 ERA)

The Rangers have lost Feldman’s last three starts, and he’s failed to go five innings in any of them. The 29-year-old right-hander likely will be dumped from the rotation when Roy Oswalt joins the team in late June following tuneup starts in the minors. Feldman has walked 12 batters in 24 innings this year.

MLB Top 5: Worst pitchers to bet on the road
------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Forty-nine-year-old pitcher Jamie Moyer was designated for assignment by the Colorado Rockies, then officially released Sunday after the veteran hurler opened the season 2-5 with a 5.70 ERA over 10 appearances.

Moyer burned Rockies bettors for -6.38 units, with -5.38 of that damage coming in five road starts. He suffered four of his five losses away from Coors Field and lugged an ERA north of 8.00 when toeing the opposing rubber.

Finding a solid road pitcher is a great way to get maximum value out of MLB moneylines. But wagering on these five arms away from home can leave MLB bettors with a nasty case of road rash.

Not only are these big-name hurlers who demand a hefty price tag, but some of their clubs are among the chalkiest public faves on the MLB board.

Mark Buehrle, Miami Marlins (2-4, 3.66 ERA on the road, -3.59 units)

The Marlins’ big offseason addition has been steady in South Beach but shaky away from the sun and surf. Buerhrle hasn’t been terrible on the road, losing most games due to a lack of run support. But he was just knocked around for four runs on 11 hits in Friday’s 6-4 loss at Philadelphia. The Marlins' ace is hovering in the red when it comes to units, thanks to his road record.

Matt Garza, Chicago Cubs (1-4, 6.10 ERA on the road, -4.13 units)

Life away from the Friendly Confines hasn’t been friendly to the Cubs' ace. Garza is down 4.73 units on the year, suffering the bulk of those losses away from Wrigley Field. In fact, the right-hander has lost his last three starts, all coming on the road. Following rough outings in Houston and Pittsburgh, Garza looked sharper, allowing two runs over six innings in San Francisco. However, Chicago mustered only one run of support.

Francisco Liriano, Minnesota Twins (0-4, 8.84 ERA on the road, -4.19 units)

Liriano is back in the Twins’ rotation after being demoted to the bullpen following a horrid start to the year. The southpaw looked good in his most recent outing – six shutout innings Wednesday – but that start came inside Target Field. Liriano will make his first road start Tuesday in Kansas City since a four-run, 5 1-3 inning-effort in Los Angeles on May 1.

Hiroki Kuroda, New York Yankees (1-4, 4.17 ERA on the road, -4.81 units)

Anytime a New York pitcher stumbles, those issues are especially expensive thanks to the ever-present Yankee Tax. Those juiced up moneylines aren’t as bad on the road, where Kuroda has performed well in recent outings but hasn’t received the support of the Bronx Bombers’ big bats. He’s given up just two runs on 11 total hits over 15 innings in his last two road starts. The Yankees are providing just 3.19 runs in support during Kuroda’s road starts, compared to the 9.00 in Ivan Nova’s (4-0) and 8.44 in C.C. Sabathia’s away outings (4-1).

Joe Blanton, Philadelphia Phillies (1-4, 6.30 ERA on the road, -0.78 units)

Blanton has posted a respectable 3-1 record and 3.90 ERA inside Citizens Bank Park but has left Phillies bettors saying “Oh brother” away from the City of Brotherly Love. The righty has been lit up in his last two road outings. He was smacked for seven runs on 10 hits in just 4 1-3 innings in St. Louis, followed by a six-run, nine-hit blood bath that lasted five innings in New York Tuesday. Blanton has been serving up watermelons, giving up 11 home runs over his last five games, including two dingers in Sunday’s home game against Miami.
