Yankees And Red Sox Renew Rivalry At Fenway Park

The Boston Red Sox and New York Yankees have played just two of their eventual six series meetings this season, with the rivalry resuming Friday night at Fenway Park.

We begin with a Thursday night update with Cincinnati a $1.46 favorite at San Diego on the Don Best odds screen. The total is a low 6½ and even shaded to the ‘under.’

This is an expected pitcher’s duel with the Reds’ Mat Latos (7-2, 4.42 ERA) against Edinson Volquez (5-7, 3.68 ERA). These players were traded for each other last December along with catcher Yasmani Grandal, first baseman Yonder Alonso and right-hander Brad Boxberger going to the Padres.

San Diego is 33-50 on the year, but has won 5-straight with Grandal hitting four homers in that span after being called up. Latos is facing his former team for the first time, but has a solid 3.31 ERA in 31 career starts at Petco Park.

Volquez has a 3.45 home ERA this year versus 4.02 away. Don Best MLB analyst Kenny White likes both starters to be motivated and perform well against their former clubs.

Our look at Friday night starts with the Cubs at the New York Mets. Johan Santana goes for the home team and is a $1.70 favorite with a total of 7½

Chicago’s Travis Wood (3-3, 3.05 ERA) has been under a lot of pressure since being acquired from Cincinnati before the season. He has really come on of late, allowing just one earned run over his last 20 innings of work and winning his last three starts.

The 25-year-old right-hander had a 4.84 ERA last year with Cincinnati, but was unlucky with a Batting Average on Balls in Play (BABIP) of over .300. That stat this year is just .219 with his luck turning around. Don Best’s White sees his ERA going up from this point.

The Cubs defeated Santana 6-1 at home on June 25, with Wood throwing seven scoreless innings.

Santana (6-4, 2.76 ERA) got the loss against the Cubs despite allowing just two earned over six innings. He’s been lights-out in eight Citi Field starts (4-1, 1.16 ERA).

White sees a betting result reversal from the last start between these pitchers, going with the Mets and the ‘over.’

Switching backs to the Yanks and Red Sox, Boston is a $1.25 favorite with a pretty big total of 9½. Hiroki Kuroda (8-7, 3.17 ERA) will square off against Josh Beckett (4-7, 4.06 ERA).

Kuroda is coming off arguably his best effort of the season, striking out 11 Chicago White Sox hitters and throwing seven scoreless. He had a 1.98 ERA in six June starts and the ‘under’ is 11-2 in his last 13 overall.

Beckett recently came off a DL stint for shoulder inflammation. He surrendered two earned runs over six innings at Seattle in his first start back, but his usual 94-95 mph fastball has diminished some this year.

The 32-year-old right-hander is 7-3 in his last 10 starts against the Yankees, but with a lofty 5.37 ERA. He is 14-7 lifetime against them.

Boston went 2-5 in its just-completed road trip, getting swept by Oakland in a series that ended Wednesday.

White believes the Red Sox are good enough to make a run at the Yankees in the AL East despite currently being 7½-games behind. They are expecting several key players back from injury soon, including outfielders Carl Crawford and Jacoby Ellsbury.

Red-hot Pirates seek 5th straight win hosting Giants



First pitch: Friday, 7:05 p.m. EDT
Line: Pittsburgh -140, San Francisco +130, Total: 9

The slumping Giants hope to turn things around when they start a three-game set Friday night in Pittsburgh, but it won’t be easy against the sizzling Pirates with eight wins in their past nine games.

San Francisco just got swept in Washington, giving the club five losses in the past six contests. The Nationals scored 24 runs on 37 hits in the three-game sweep, but the Giants have a good chance to stop the losing skid with lefty Barry Zito, who has been masterful in his past two starts (13 IP, 1 ER). On the other hand, Pirates left-hander Erik Bedard has been roughed up in his past two outings (10.2 IP, 9 ER) and the Pirates have lost each of his past four starts, where he is 0-3 with a 7.65 ERA. Another thing going against Bedard is the Giants success against southpaws this season, as they are 16-9 (.640) versus lefty starters. And considering they have won 13 of the past 19 meetings with the Bucs, the play here is significant underdog SAN FRANCISCO to prevail.

This two-star FoxSheets trend also favors the Giants:

Play On - Road underdogs with a money line of +100 or higher (SAN FRANCISCO) - poor NL offensive team (<=4.1 runs/game) against a team with a very good bullpen (ERA<=3.33), with a bullpen that averages less than 2.75 innings per game. (42-32 since 1997.) (56.8%, +25.6 units. Rating = 2*).

Zito (6-6, 3.84 ERA, 1.40 WHIP) has not pitched well on the road this season with a 4.93 ERA and 1.54 WHIP. This includes an 8.84 ERA in his past four road starts. He has just 22 K’s and 19 walks in these 38.1 road innings. However, Zito has thrived in his two career starts in Pittsburgh, allowing just four runs and 11 hits in 11.1 innings, fanning nine and walking only two. Zito has also led his team to three straight victories over the Pirates, posting a 2.89 ERA in these three starts. And although his team has lost three straight, the Giants still had 32 hits and a .296 BA in the defeats. San Francisco’s bullpen couldn’t hold onto the lead on Thursday, but the relievers have been pretty decent this year with a 3.50 ERA and 30 saves in 38 chances.

Bedard (4-9, 4.57 ERA, 1.48 WHIP) has struggled in his past two starts, but both of those were on the road. He has been much more comfortable at PNC Park this year, carting a 2.31 ERA and 1.21 WHIP in seven home starts, leading Pittsburgh to a 4-3 record. Overall, the Pirates are a whopping 27-13 (.675) at home this season, the best mark in the majors. They have won 16 of their past 19 at home. Bedard has not allowed a single home run in 39 PNC Park innings, which is a big difference from his eight homers served up in 43.2 innings away from home. The longballs are a big reason for his team’s 2-7 record in these nine road starts. Bedard has made just one career start versus San Francisco, and that occurred way back in 2004, when he allowed no earned runs in five innings, walking five and fanning three. Moving back to the present, he hopes to have great help from his offense that is batting .325 with 7.6 runs per games and 16 HR in the past nine games. Pittsburgh’s bullpen has also been strong in 2012, posting a 2.70 ERA and 1.23 WHIP. These numbers dip to an even more impressive 2.37 ERA and 1.13 WHIP at PNC Park.

Friday’s betting tips: Youkilis has ChiSox surging

Who’s hot

MLB: Over is 16-7 in the New York Yankees' last 23 games in Boston.

MLB: Athletics are 20-8 in their last 28 games as a home favorite.

CFL: Blue Bombers are 21-8-2 ATS in their last 31 games as an underdog.

WNBA: Connecticut Sun are 5-1 ATS in their last six road games.

Who’s not

MLB: Houston is 3-11 in its last 14 games against Milwaukee.

MLB: Mariners are 23-51 in their last 74 games as a road underdog.

CFL: Alouettes are 0-7 ATS in their last seven games as a favorite.

WNBA: Liberty are 3-8 ATS in their last 11 games as an underdog.

Key stat

90 – The Washington Mystics scored 90 points for the first time this season in a win over Phoenix that snapped a five-game losing streak both straight up and against the spread. The Mystics now face the San Antonio, which has scored at least 90 points in four of its last six.

Injury that shouldn’t be overlooked

Buck Pierce, Winnipeg Blue Bombers – Winnipeg’s quarterback was forced to leave last week’s blowout loss to the B.C. Lions with a knee injury. He says he’s “confident” he’ll be able to start Friday against Montreal, but has been spotted limping around for most of this week.

Game of the day

New York Yankees at Boston Red Sox (-115, 9.5)

Notable quotable

“Subconsciously, I’m probably pretty stressed out right now but I try not to show it. Obviously, the pressure is there, if I thought too much about it, it would become too much, but if you shield yourself and listen only to those around you, you can manage. And they give you the confidence you need.” – Andy Murray about playing in front of the British crowd at Wimbledon. He’s trying to become the first British man to make the tournament’s final since 1938 and is a -227 favorite over Jo-Wilfried Tsonga in Friday’s semifinal.

Notes and tips

Kevin Youkilis hit what turned out to be the game-winning homer for the Chicago White Sox in a 2-1 win over Texas on Thursday. That win moved the club to 7-3 since it acquired Youkilis from the Boston Red Sox. "He has an energy he brings -- the competitiveness he has. It's infectious, and it's a good thing for our guys to see in a guy who has been a winner," White Sox manager Robin Ventura told reporters.

Roger Federer and Novak Djokovic have faced each other 26 times, but Friday will be the first time they will square off on grass. Djokovic is 12-14 in those meetings and is a -250 favorite against Federer +180.

The Toronto Raptors acquired point guard Kyle Lowry from the Houston Rockets in exchange for a future lottery pick and Gary Forbes. Meanwhile, ESPN reports that veteran point guard Jason Kidd will sign a three-year $9 million-deal with the Knicks instead of inking with the Dallas Mavericks again.

It's possible Phillies first baseman Ryan Howard could rejoin the team this weekend, although it is by no means a certainty. "I guess it's possible," Phillies general manager Ruben Amaro Jr. said Thursday afternoon. "But we'll see how he feels the next day or so." Howard, who had left Achilles surgery last fall, has played six games in rehab assignments with Class A Lakewood and Triple-A Lehigh Valley. He is hitting a combined .471 (8-for-17) with two doubles, one home run, nine RBIs, three walks and three strikeouts.

Armadillo: Friday's six-pack

-- Former Giant WR Amani Toomer said on his Sirius radio show that he thinks Tony Romo is a better QB than Eli Manning. Alrighty then.

-- reported that the Seattle Seahawks travelled 29,912 miles on their eight road trips LY. Steelers travelled 5,682 miles on theirs.

-- Since I know you're wondering, there are 24,722 Subway sub shops in this great world of ours, 14,098 McDonald's.

-- Dan Haren (back) is on DL for the first time in his career.

-- Braves' 3B Juan Francisco saw 28 pitches in his first two AB against Matt Garza. Thats two full innings for some of the better pitchers.

-- RA Dickey allowed a first-inning run Thursday for the first time in his 17 starts this season.


Armadillo: Friday's List of 13: NFC knowledge with the weekend here........

Its never too early to start thinking about football; with that in mind, here is some food for thought, as another summer weekend is here.......

Arizona-- 13-19 since Kurt Warner retired; 5-12-2 vs spread last 19 games when they were the favorite.

Atlanta-- 43-21 in regular season under Mike Smith, but 0-3 in playoff tilts. Only once in last decade have they had negative turnover ratio.

Carolina-- Improved from #32 to #13 in passing yards LY, with rookie QB playing. Last five years, they're 6-0 vs spread as a road favorite.

Chicago-- Last five years, they're 9-15-1 vs spread as home favorites; they are minus-38 in sacks last two years, allowing 105 in 32 games (3.28).

Dallas-- Since '04, they're 4-15-1 vs spread as home favorites vs divisional foes. Last two years, underdogs are 23-8-1 vs spread in their games.
Detroit-- 10-6 mark LY was first winning record since '99. Since '04, they're 12-6 vs spread as home fave in non-division games, 3-5-2 in division tilts.

Green Bay-- An amazing +58 in turnovers last three years; allowed 412 ypg LY, most in NFL. Covered 17 of 24 home games last three years.

Minnesota-- Led NFL in sacks two of last three years, but they're 9-23 last two years. Since '06, they're 3-10-1 vs spread as home dogs.

NJ Giants-- Covered four of last five regular season games twice in last five years; both times, they won Super Bowl. Finished last in NFL in rushing yardage, were 7-7 after 14 games, but got into tournament, then won it.

New Orleans-- Super Bowl season is only time in last seven years they had a positive turnover ratio. Strange year looms, with Payton not coaching.
Philadelphia-- 8-8 LY despite hideous minus-14 turnover ratio; finished LY on 4-0 roll- does momentum from that carry over into 2012?

St Louis-- 15-65 SU last five years; favored in only five of last 32 games at home. 20-32 vs spread as road underdog the last eight years.

San Francisco-- +28 in turnovers LY, after being minus-44 previous seven years combined. Have five primetime games this year, three at home.

Seattle-- Went 7-9 LY despite a +9 turnover ratio. Since 2005, are 11-4 as home favorite in divisional games.

Tampa Bay--Once-proud Buc defense finished last in NFL rushing defense twice in last three years, during which time they're 5-17-1 against spread as home underdogs. New coach Schiano was an unusual hire.

Washington-- 15-33 last three years, with minus-29 turnover ratio; giving ball to rookie QB RGIII, hoping he can replicate Cam Newton's 2011.

Public opinion: Rangers look set to snap slump

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


Minnesota Twins at Texas Rangers (-135, N/A)

The Texas Rangers were swept away by the Chicago White Sox on Thursday and have now lost four straight games. The Rangers have now lost four straight just twice this season and early bettors expect them to end the skid as they head home to face Francisco Liriano and the Twins.

Consensus: Rangers, 62 percent


Hamilton Tiger-Cats at B.C. Lions (-7, 54)

The defending champions picked up right where they left off last season by drilling the Blue Bombers in a rematch of the Grey Cup final. Wideout Geroy Simon became the league’s all-time leading receiver in that game and the Lions put up 358 net yards. Hamilton’s defense could be in trouble here.

Consensus: Lions, 69 percent


Connecticut Sun at Tulsa Shock (+9, 164)

The Sun look to bounce back from a tough overtime loss to Seattle at home as 12-point favorites. Their offense should have a field day against Tulsa’s defense that allows more than 83 points per game.

Consensus: Sun, 67 percent
