Cnotes Monday's MLB Best Bets !

Hot & Not

September 17, 2012

The postseason is rapidly approaching meaning teams still in it to win it are making those final pushes while teams with nothing left to fight for are either rolling over or trotting more of their younger talent out to the playing field. Here’s a look at what some of the best and worst teams did over the course of the last week against the closing baseball betting lines.

Money-Makers

Milwaukee Brewers (5-1, $363): The Brew Crew’s late season charge continued this past week after manager Ron Roenicke’s squad went out and swept the Wild Card leading Atlanta Braves at home before taking two of three from the woeful Mets. Ryan Braun has continued to rip the cover off the ball and is now the NL home run leader (40) after launching two more in Sunday’s series finale. Now two-games over the breakeven point, Milwaukee finds itself just 21/2-games out of the play-in Wild Card slot.

On The Docket: It’s once again do or die for Milwaukee this week with each of their next 10-games to be played away from the comfy confines of Miller Park in Pittsburgh, Washington, and Cincinnati. While the team sits a healthy 17-games over .500 as a host, it possesses a 28-43 overall mark on the road (-$1854) but has won 13 of its L/16 versus +.500 opposition.

San Diego Padres (5-1, $363): It truly is a shame that the Padres dug themselves into such a deep hole throughout the first-half of the season. Because of it, manager Bud Black’s squad realistically has no shot of qualifying for the second season with them being forced to leapfrog six other ball clubs in order to qualify. However, the building blocks look to be firmly in place for this franchise to compete for the foreseeable future, so look for SD to continue relishing its role of spoiler as it looks to claw even closer to .500.

On The Docket: The Padres will embark upon a six-game road trip starting Tuesday night in Arizona before wrapping up in San Francisco. Chase Headley and his mates have won 12 of their L/15 series openers, 19 of their L/26 overall, and split their 60 overall NL West tussles.

Oakland A’s (5-2, $346): We questioned the A’s and their abilities at September’s outset thinking they’d struggle after catapulting themselves back into the postseason picture by beating up on lesser opposition. However, after going into Anaheim and taking three of four from a Halos outfit that desperately needed that series win, call us believers! “The Swingin’ A’s” enter the last couple weeks of the regular season firing on all cylinders having only dropped one series in their last nine played. That in and of itself is commendable, but more importantly, Oakland is now the best overall bet in baseball having reeled their supporters in a whopping $3257 worth of profit on the year!

On The Docket: Baseball bettors will now truly get a feel for what the overall Wild Card leaders are all about over the next 10 days with each of their next three series set to go in Detroit, New York, and Texas – all possible second season entrants. Oakland’s won 22 of its L/30 on the road as well as five of its L/6 away from the Coliseum versus +.500 opposition.

Honorable Mentions: Baltimore Orioles (4-2, $280), Chicago Cubs (4-2, $241), San Francisco Giants (4-2, $201), Detroit Tigers (4-2, $166), New York Yankees (4-2, $142)

Money-Burners

Pittsburgh Pirates (1-5, -$458): After dropping nearly a nickel for its baseball betting backers last week, manager Clint Hurdle’s outfit managed to pile on another hefty tally to that wretched mark after managing just one win in the six games it played against the division rival Reds and Cubs this past week. This outfit has hemorrhaged betting losses throughout the second-half of the season, and now finds itself a couple more losses away from being in the red overall; hardly expected after this club was both in the division and Wild Card races just two months ago.

On The Docket: If the Buccos have any shot of still qualifying for the playoffs, they must hold serve at home against the Brewers before turning their attention to the road trip to Houston. That said, Pittsburgh has dropped 19 of its L/26 overall games played and fallen seven of the L/10 times it welcomed Milwaukee into PNC.

Tampa Bay Rays (1-5, -$446): Once a sexy pick to outlast everyone in the AL East just a couple weeks ago, the Rays are now the forgotten team after putting forth a truly pitiful effort when the exact opposite was needed in trips to Baltimore and the Bronx last week. After pulling out just one win, Tampa Bay sits six-games in back of Oakland and four behind the Orioles with only the Angels to jump. While still doable, manager Joe Maddon’s outfit must make hay over the next week at home to have any shot.

On The Docket: The first step to turning things around will come against Boston who the Rays have dropped seven of 12 against in 2012, and it will be followed up with a visit from Toronto who the Rays have flat out dominated winning 11 of the 15 previous quarrels; they’ve won five of six when hosting the rivalry.

St. Louis Cardinals (2-5, -$358): The second-half of the defending champs season has hardly gone as well as it did just a short season ago. It was around this time last year that the Redbirds were so red hot that they made the charge that allowed them to snag the Wild Card. This time around, they’re clinging on for dear life in hopes of holding onto the play-in slot. The Dodgers, Brewers, Pirates, Phillies, and D’Backs are all breathing down their collective neck, so any prolonged losing streak would certainly see them miss out on the opportunity of defending their title.

On The Docket: The Cardinals return home from a miserable West Coast road trip (2-5) to host the Astros before taking their final trip to Wrigley Field to battle the hated Cubs. They’ll then close out the roady with a trip to Houston which means each of the team’s next nine games will come against opponents that check in a combined 81-games under .500. Losing ball clubs are what the Redbirds have feasted upon all season long – they’re 12-2 their L/14 vs. sub .400 opposition.

Dishonorable Mentions: New York Mets (1-5, -$378), Minnesota Twins (2-5, -$314), Los Angeles Dodgers (2-4, -$247), Cleveland Indians (2-5, -$175), Philadelphia Phillies (4-3, -$117), Colorado Rockies (2-4, -$101)

Mets look to spoil Philly playoff push Monday

PHILADELPHIA PHILLIES (73-74)

at NEW YORK METS (66-80)


First pitch: Monday, 7:10 p.m. EDT
Line: Philadelphia -110, New York +100, Total: 6½

As the Phillies have pushed their way back into Wild Card contention, the Mets will look to play spoiler and give Cy Young contender R.A. Dickey his N.L.-leading 19th win of the season.

The Phillies entered Houston on Thursday with a seven-game win streak, but dropped three of four to the Astros, the majors’ worst team (48-99). They’ll take on another slumping team in the Mets, who have lost eight of their past nine, surpassing three runs just twice in this nine-game span. But Dickey is the only pitcher who can compete with that sort of run support, sporting a 2.60 ERA, 1.04 WHIP and 18-5 record in 29 starts this season. He has been just as good lately with a 1.72 ERA and 3-1 record in his past five starts. On Monday, he faces southpaw Cliff Lee, who has recovered from a poor start to develop a 5-7 record in 2012 on a 3.36 ERA and 1.14 WHIP. He has been particularly dominant lately in his past four starts (all Phillies wins), going 3-0 with an 0.99 ERA, 0.95 WHIP, 23 K’s and just two walks in 27.1 innings. But the Mets appear poised to play spoiler here given their domination of the Phillies this season, having taken 10 of the 15 series games already in 2012. And as home underdogs with one of baseball’s best pitchers on the mound, they should be the play. Take NEW YORK to prevail in this one.

This pair of three-star FoxSheets trends also favor the Mets:

Play Against - All favorites with a money line of -110 or higher (PHILADELPHIA) - with an on-base percentage of .375 or better over their last 10 games, with a hot starting pitcher- WHIP <= 1.000 over his last 3 starts. (56-41 over the last 5 seasons.) (57.7%, +42 units. Rating = 3*).

N.Y. METS are 28-8 (77.8%, +24.2 Units) against the money line after a game where they had 2 or less hits since 1997. The average score was N.Y. METS 5.0, OPPONENT 3.2 - (Rating = 3*).

Cliff Lee earned his first win of 2012 against the Mets on July 4, snapping a 13-start personal winless streak to start the season. Overall, in seven career starts against the Mets, he has a 3-1 record (team 4-3) with a 2.25 ERA and 1.04 WHIP. And, by averaging 7.0 innings per start this year, he largely eliminates one of Philadelphia’s greatest weaknesses—its bullpen. Philly relievers have a 5.07 ERA and 1.44 WHIP on the road in 2012 with just 19 saves in 29 chances (66%). The bullpen has been much better this month though, sporting a 2.33 ERA in 38.2 September innings.

Like Lee, Dickey’s endurance is key to his success, as the knuckleballer is averaging 7.0 innings per start. He averages 7.2 innings per start at home, where he has a stellar 2.40 ERA, 0.96 WHIP and an 8-2 record. And with the Mets bullpen sporting a poor 4.69 ERA and 1.40 WHIP on the season, it’s best that they pitch as little as possible. Given the Mets anemic offense, Dickey will have to throw a gem to win this one, but he has done that regularly in 2012. He has also had success against the Phils, sporting a 2.94 ERA and 1.25 WHIP in eight career starts against them, leading his team to three straight wins in the series with a 3.00 ERA and 6.0 K-to-BB ratio (18 K, 3 BB) in this span. The home underdogs are the choice here.

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

STREAKING

Doug Fister, Detroit Tigers (9-8, 3.49)

Fister allowed two runs over seven innings to pick up the win over the White Sox on Tuesday. The only two hits Fister gave up were a pair of solo homers. The right-hander has only surrendered five earned runs over his last two starts, picking up the win in two of those contests. He faces the White Sox again on Monday.

Cliff Lee, Philadelphia Phillies (5-7, 3.36)

Lee allowed one unearned run over seven strong innings in a 3-1 Phillies' win over the Marlins Wednesday. The left-hander has 18 strikeouts and two earned runs allowed in 20 1/3 September innings. He gets the ball against the Mets next.


SLUMPING

Madison Bumgarner, San Francisco Giants (14-10, 3.32)

Bumgarner labored through 4 1/3 innings Tuesday, allowing five runs to the Rockies last time out. The lefty has yielded at least four earned runs in each of his last four starts and has watched his ERA balloon from 2.83 on August 25 to 3.32 following his latest poor effort. He draws the same Colorado squad in his next start.

Aaron Cook, Boston Red Sox (3-10, 5.18)

Cook yielded three earned runs in five innings of work in a loss to the Yankees Wednesday. The righty has been tabbed with losses in five of his last six starts and takes the bump against the Rays on Monday

Rounding the bases: The best bets in the bigs
------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Every week we take a look at the hottest and coldest teams as well as the best over and under bets in major league baseball.

Hot team: Milwaukee Brewers
Last week: 5-1
Season record: 74-72
Upcoming schedule: at Pirates, at Nationals

Skinny: The Brewers have won 20 of their 26 games to shoot up the NL standings and challenge for a playoff spot. Reigning league MVP Ryan Braun belted a pair of homers Sunday versus the Mets to hit reach the 40-home run plateau for the first time in his career.

Cold team: Pittsburgh Pirates
Last week: 1-5
Season record: 73-72
Upcoming schedule: at Cubs, vs. Brewers, at Astros

Skinny: The Pirates are in a free fall, dropping eight of their last nine contests. Surprisingly, Pittsburgh is still within striking distance of a wild-card spot and can make a run if it can find a way to turn things around.

Over team: Colorado Rockies
Last week: 5-1
Season O/U record: 73-67-5
Upcoming schedule: at Giants, vs. Diamondbacks

Skinny: Colorado played over the total in five of its six games this week against San Francisco and San Diego. The Rockies have one of the better offenses in the league, but rank dead last in the bigs in ERA, making them a popular over choice for bettors down the stretch.

Under team: Boston Red Sox
Last week: 5-1
Season O/U record: 71-70-6
Upcoming schedule: at Rays, vs. Orioles

Skinny: The Red Sox played under the total in five of six games last week against the Yankees and Blue Jays. Boston’s lineup is loaded with inexperienced call-ups and its offense has struggled as a result.

Five MLB teams running out of gas in September
------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

September is the most exciting time of the baseball season. The tension rises, pressure becomes a daily part of the lives of players and the wear and tear of the vigorous MLB schedule begins to take its toll.

Here are five teams, which are a combined 22-39-7 over/under this month, that seem to be running out of offensive firepower down the stretch:

Statistics used are from games scheduled between Sept. 1- Sept. 15.

Cincinnati Reds

September offensive stats: 36 runs scored, 10 home runs, .221 team batting average
September record: 6-7, 1-10-3 over/under
Up next: at Cubs, vs. Dodgers, vs. Milwaukee

Cincinnati has a comfortable 11-game lead in the NL Central heading into action Sunday, but its offense is cooling off. The team has averaged 2.77 runs per game in September, going 6-7 over that stretch. The Reds’ 36 runs scored and .221 team batting average are the lowest totals in the bigs this month.

Atlanta Braves

September offensive stats: 44 runs scored, 10 home runs, .237 team batting average
September record: 9-5, 4-10 over/under
Up next: at Marlins, at Phillies, vs. Marlins

Atlanta slugger Jason Heyward belted his team-leading 27th homer on Saturday, but the Braves are last in the majors with a .231 average with runners in scoring position this season. Only one year removed from a late-September collapse, you have to wonder if the pressure of making the playoffs is taking its toll once again. The good news for bettors is Atlanta continues to be a profitable under bet this season (63-78-5 O/U).

Oakland Athletics

September offensive stats: 55 runs scored, 18 home runs, .225 team batting average
September record: 10-4, 6-7-1 over/under
Up next: At Tigers, at Yankees, at Rangers

The Athletics could use all the room they can get with a 10-game road trip through Detroit, New York and Texas beginning Tuesday. Oakland trails the Rangers by two games in the AL West and has a 2.5-game advantage over the Angels for a wild card spot. The A’s continue to hit for power, but their team batting average is plummeting this month, putting even more strain on their young pitching staff.

Toronto Blue Jays

September offensive stats: 54 runs scored, 11 home runs, .221 team batting average
September record: 5-8, 7-5-1 over/under
Up next: at Yankees, at Rays, at Orioles

It’s been a nightmare season on the injury front for the Blue Jays. Brett Lawrie, J.P. Arencibia and slugger Jose Bautista have missed significant time with injuries and the team has struggled to put runs on the board without them. Toronto has called up many of its top prospects for the remainder of the season and that’s reflected in its weak offensive statistics this month.

Los Angeles Dodgers

September offensive stats: 37 runs scored, 10 home runs, .227 team batting average
September record: 6-7, 4-7-2 over/under
Up next: at Nationals, at Reds, at Padres

The Dodgers have fallen way behind the Giants in the NL West and are now in a dogfight for a wild card spot. The blockbuster trade with Boston that brought Adrian Gonzalez to L.A. has failed to spark the offense. Slugger Matt Kemp went 0-for-4 Saturday and is 3-for-32 in his last eight games.
