Some Sunday MLB Helpful Information

Sunday Night Baseball
by Steve Merril

Red Sox at Yankees

Sunday Night Baseball comes to New York as the Yankees host the Red Sox.

Boston Red Sox at New York Yankees (-115, 8)


Clay Buchholz is back after missing a start due to soreness in his right AC joint. The righty is 7-0 with a 1.73 ERA while holding opponents to a .194 batting average. This will be his second start against the Yankees after picking up a win against them on April 3 in New York. In that game, Buchholz allowed one run and six hits in seven innings, striking out four while walking two. The righty has been spectacular on the road, allowing just four total runs in his four starts away from Boston. His one weakness may be a lack of control, but even that hasn't been too bad with exactly three walks in each of his past three outings.


Hiroki Kuroda has been one of the best pitchers for his team this season. The Yankees’ starter is 6-3 with a 2.39 ERA. He got a no-decision his last time out in a pitcher's duel with Matt Harvey when Mariano Rivera blew his first save of the season. Kuroda had a rough outing against Boston at home back on April 3 when he gave up two runs and four hits in just 1 1/3 innings before getting hit by a line drive. The righty has allowed only five earned runs in five starts at home.


The injury situation is steadily improving for the Yankees who just recently got Kevin Youkilis and Mark Teixeira back from injuries. The lineup is still awaiting the return of Curtis Granderson, Alex Rodriguez, and Derek Jeter. They are also without Eduardo Nunez and Francisco Cervelli. Andy Pettitte is going to return from his neck injury on Monday against the Indians. Michael Pineda is also potentially coming back in June as he returns from a shoulder injury. Boston’s list is a lot shorter with Shane Victorino and Will Middlebrooks on the DL. Both are expected back early this month. The loss of Joel Hanrahan to Tommy John surgery could make things interesting for Boston’s bullpen.


The under is 8-2 in Buchholz’s last 10 Sunday starts.
Red Sox are 9-1 in Buchholz’s last 10 starts
The over is 9-4-1 in the Yankees’ last 14 Sunday games.
Yankees are 7-3 in Kuroda’s last 10 starts


Robinson Cano 12-for-28 vs. Buchholz
Lyle Overbay 7-for-25 vs. Buchholz
Stephen Drew 8-for-24 vs. Kuroda
Dustin Pedroia 7-for-15 vs. Kuroda

MLB Betting

Cardinals an awesome road bet

The St. Louis Cardinals have been absolute gold for bettors on the road.

The Cardinals boast a league-best 20-9 road record heading into action Saturday. The next best clubs away from home (Boston, Baltimore) are only five games above .500.

Any $100 bettor would be up $1,083 if they wagered on each of St. Louis’ away games. However, bettors will have to wait until June 7 for the Cards’ next road tilt.

St. Louis hits the road for a 10-game trip down the east coast, beginning in Cincinnati. The Cardinals will then head down the coast for three-game sets with the New York Mets and Miami Marlins.

St. Louis has a combined 7-3 record against the Reds and Mets this season, and has yet to square off with the lowly Marlins.

The Cardinals are averaging 5.06 runs per game and their pitching staff boasts an impressive 2.97 ERA away from Busch Stadium.

Unfortunately, that hasn’t translated to a prevailing over/under trend. St. Louis is 14-13-2 O/U on the road to date.
