Some Tuesday MLB Helpful Information

Winning MLB pitchers that are horrible bets

Here are four pitchers that have won more games than they’ve lost, but have been killing bettors to this point in the season:

Justin Verlander, Detroit Tigers

The Tigers are 10-8 in Verlander’s starts to date but a $100 bettor would be down $348 if they had wagered on each of the fireballer’s outings. Sharp bettors are instead fading the Tigers when the 2011 AL MVP takes the hill and betting the over to a tune of 11-6-1.

Yu Darvish, Texas Rangers

The Rangers are 10-8 when Darvish gets the ball and $100 bettors are in the red $499 on the righty’s 18 starts. The Japanese export really burned bettors in his most recent start against the Houston Astros when Texas fell as a hearty -320 favorite.

Clayton Kershaw, Los Angeles Dodgers

Kershaw boasts a league-best 1.89 ERA but that isn’t impressing bettors. The Dodgers are 11-8 in the lefty’s outings and that's resulted in a $291 loss for $100 bettors in each of his starts. But there may be hope in the second half of the season for Kershaw bettors. L.A. has wins in 12 of its last 15 games and won each of his last three starts.

Matt Harvey, New York Mets

The Mets are used to their role as underdogs on a nightly basis, but they’re almost always favorites when Harvey toes the rubber. The righty has only been a dog twice in his 18 starts and has put $100 bettors $320 in the hole. Surprisingly, New York has a 9-7-1 over/under record in Harvey’s starts.

Three bad MLB teams that are good bets lately

The Seattle Mariners, New York Mets and Chicago Cubs have been fade material all season, but all three clubs have been a good bet lately.

Let's take a closer look:

Seattle Mariners

The Mariners couldn't have asked for a better road trip, as they took back-to-back series' and six of eight games from the Rangers and Reds. Seattle won all six of those games as an underdog and returns home for a four-game set with the Boston Red Sox on Monday night.

New York Mets

New York has quietly posted a 12-8 record since June 18th, with nine of those victories coming in an underdog role. The Mets head to San Francisco to take on the struggling Giants for a three-game set beginning Monday. New York has also been a great over play recently, going 7-1 over/under over its past eight contests.

Chicago Cubs

At 7-4 over their last 11 games, the Cubbies are finally giving their faithful something to cheer about. With the trade deadline rapidly approaching, Chicago’s potential players on the move should continue to step up and showcase their talents for the next few weeks.

Play On: NY Yankees w/Sabathia vs Shields

The Yankees and Royals resume a four-game set Tuesday night in the Bronx where CC Sabathia matches serves with James Shields at Yankee Stadium. Sabathia saunters to the hill sporting a 13-4 mark in his last seventeen-team starts against Kansas City, along with a 13-3 ledger in his last sixteen home team starts during July.
Meanwhile, Shields owns a 2-11 career team start record as a visitor to Yankee Stadium, including 0-6 the last six. With that, look for the large lefty to improve to 4-0 in games against the A. L. Central this season here this evening. We recommend a 1-unit play in the Yankees.

This is a 1* free play on the "under" between the New York Mets and the San Francisco Giants on Tuesday night (10:15 EST).

Dillon Gee (6-7, 4.45 ERA) gets the call for the visitors; Gee gave up two runs off six hits with two walks while striking out seven over seven frames of work in an unfortunate no-decision vs. the Diamondbacks on Thursday. Gee continues to get the job done and has allowed two runs or fewer in six of his last seven starts. Gee will be opposed by Barry Zito (4-6, 4.44 ERA) who gave up one run over four innings in a no-decision vs. the Reds on Wednesday. Here's a chance for the veteran to return to form and improve upon his near perfect 4-1, 1.98 ERA home record. As I mentioned in yesterday's free play writeup, six of these team's last ten in the series have gone "under" the number coming into Monday's game; expect these starters to battle into the latter frames and as a result, the "under" is definitely worth a second look in this one.
