MLB: Top MLB Weekend Power Trends 8/20-8/22
2010-08-21

If late August baseball clashes between competing teams in the playoff races are your thing, then this weekend in Major League Baseball is probably not for you. Of the 15 series’ going on, only one pits current playoff contenders against one another, that coming in St. Louis, where the Cardinals host the Giants. However, if you’re indifferent to that type of drama and just prefer to get some solid wagering action down, then this weekend’s slate is as good as any. I’m here to help with that, looking at some of the series’ you will be handicapping while also revealing this weekend’s list of top StatFox Power Trends to consider.

As indicated earlier, the key series in baseball this weekend matches the Giants and Cardinals, the two teams closest to Philadelphia in the race for the N.L.’s wildcard position heading into the weekend. St. Louis is just a game back of the Phillies but has given up ground of late, losing its last four games. The Giants are two games out that wildcard spot, but like the Cardinals, have scuffled a bit of late, yielding ground during a current 6-9 swoon through August. This will be just the second meeting of the season between these teams, with San Francisco having taken two of three back in April at home. All three of those games went under the total, producing a combined nine runs.

The divisional leaders in the National League will all be on the road this weekend. Atlanta, which maintains a 2.5-game lead over Philadelphia in the East, will be in Chicago taking on the Cubs. The hosts have officially thrown in the towel on this season, and perhaps the current era, as they have unloaded their roster in trades for prospects and find themselves 20.5-games out of the Central lead behind Cincinnati. The Braves haven’t exactly set the world on fire on the road though this season, going just 27-33. The Reds are in Los Angeles where they have historically struggled, losing their last 12 games to the Dodgers. However, chances are much better they can get it done now, since they are on a 6-game winning streak in which they have scored 40 runs. Finally, the Padres, leading the West by 6-games, head to Milwaukee to take on the Brewers.

The most exciting race currently in the American League is being staged by the Yankees and Rays in the East. The teams are separated by a single game for both the division lead and the best overall record in the majors. On paper, the division leading Yankees have the big edge this weekend, playing host to the lowly Mariners, who are just 19-41 on the road this season. The Rays meanwhile, are in Oakland, facing the tough A’s pitching staff. The A’s already took game one of the 4-game set on Thursday night, 4-3, behind another solid starting outing from Trevor Cahill.

The Red Sox are starting to make some noise once again behind the Yankees & Rays but they are still 5.5-games behind Tampa for the A.L. Wildcard spot. Boston hosts Toronto this weekend, but the Jays are also playing well, having gone 22-15 since the 4th of July holiday. The Red Sox bats seem to have awoken from a slumber, as they have scored 5.4 runs per game during their current 6-4 surge. They host this series and another at home against Seattle before heading to Tampa next weekend for what could be a do or die set. Elsewhere, the other divisional leaders, Minnesota and Texas, will be at home versus the Angels, and at Baltimore, respectively.

MLB system supports Kansas City win
2010-05-13

If it wasn’t so absurd, it might be laughable for current Cy Young winner Zack Greinke (0-4, 2.51 ERA, 1.050 WHIP). Grienke is 11t Apuestas Deportivas Apuestas NFL Futbol Americano Online Bingo Rooms Play Bingo online SITRAK C7H Costa Rica 1989 Suzuki GS500E Modificada h in the American League in ERA and seventh in WHIP, yet he has not registered a victory this season pitching for the Kansas City Royals. Today could be the day, as he is backed by a healthy betting system and pitching as a -185 favorite according to Sportsbook.com.
At this time a year ago Greinke had six wins and all the talented right-hander can say is “I’m just trying to keep us in ball games. We’re just getting beat right now,” Greinke stated.
The Royals lack of success falls into one broad pool. The Royals ace has to be perfect every time because his offense is objectionable. In his seven starts Kansas City hitters have scored a grand total of 17 runs, 2.4 per outing. K.C. is 1-6 in Greinke’s outings and he’s placed them in position to win two other games, but the bullpen blew those opportunities.
The Royals will look to avoid being swept by Cleveland at home. The Indians are on a three-game winning streak and have three consecutive double digit hit games in a row for the first time this season. This is certainly a rarity for club with a .248 team batting average.
David Huff (1-4, 4.60, 1.500) will toe the rubber for the Tribe, looking to avoid a fourth straight loss. Huff has really struggled of late with 7.16 ERA in three previous trips to the mound, allowing 34 hits + walks combined in 16.1 innings. Of the 25 base hits conceded, six were home runs which takes his total to seven dingers in only five starts.
Sportsbook.com has the Indians as +170 money line underdogs and they fall into a negative super system.
Play Against road underdogs with a money line of +125 to +175, who are below average AL hitting team at .265 or less, against a good starting pitcher (ERA <=4.20), with a starting pitcher who gives up one or more home runs a start.
Kansas City has lost seven in a row and won’t run into many better opportunities than this for a much needed victory. Since 1997, this system is 87-24, 78.4 percent with the favorite winning by two runs on average. Greinke is 5-7 lifetime against Cleveland but is 3-0, with 2.52 ERA in his last six starts against the Indians.
If Greinke pitches his usual game and Huff continues to be ineffective, every reason to believe the Tribe falls to 13-37 vs. a starting pitcher who strikes out five or more batters.


MLB: Florida floundering and in rotten situation
2009-09-03

Both Atlanta and Florida are on the outer reaches of the race for the wild card chase, nevertheless, both still have a chance if they could put together a significant winning streak and Colorado would falter. The Braves have placed themselves in the better position having won the last two nights against the Marlins at Land Shark Stadium, leaving them three games behind the Rockies. Florida has been in a swoon and will find it difficult to recover tonight, going up against a powerful betting system. Get more about this key game on the LIVE ODDS, BETTING TRENDS, and TEAM STATISTICS pages.

Atlanta (70-62, -3.5 units) is chasing its first postseason berth in four years and has helped itself immensely winning eight of its last 11 games on the road, moving to 35-32 on the season as visitors. The Braves are 19-9 after five or more consecutive road games this season and have named Javier Vazquez (11-9, 3.02 ERA) as starter, who will be seeking his fifth straight road win.

Atlanta has won Vazquez’s last five starts on the road and he is 7-2 with 2.96 ERA in Braves traveling uniforms and the linemakers at Sportsbook.com have made this combination a -150 money line favorite.

Florida (68-64, +0.9 units) has been in a tailspin at just the wrong time, losing nine of its last 13 games. The bats haven’t been able to keep up with the Florida weather and have averaged a cool four runs per game in the process, compared to 4.7 on the season.

The Marlins failed to take advantage of a favorable situation last night facing Tim Hudson, who was making his first start in 13 months after elbow surgery, but scored only two runs in 5 1/3 innings against him and three on the night in a frustrating 4-3 defeat.

Rich VandenHurk (2-2, 5.12) gets the ball for Florida after being a September call-up from the minors, having had success against the Braves with 2-0 record and 3.91 ERA in five lifetime starts. While that makes Fish fans hopeful, the fact remains VandenHurk was sent back down to the minors in mid-August after posting 7.98 ERA in three previous starts.

This leads to a potentially lucrative system for the baseball sports bettor that reads this way.

Play Against home underdogs with a money line of +125 to +175, who are an average NL offensive team scoring 4.3 to 4.8 runs a game, against a good starting pitcher (ERA of 3.70 or less), after a loss by two runs or less.
Dating back to 1997, this superb system is 53-14, 79.1 percent, with the average margin of victory being 2.6 runs per game. This profitable system is enhanced with Vazquez and the Braves 13-3 as road favorite of -110 or higher. Consider this as potential play in Wednesday baseball action.


MLB: Top MLB Weekend Power Trends 5/1-5/3
2009-05-05

The first weekend of May is well known in betting circles for the annual running of horse racing’s biggest event, the Kentucky Derby. However, there are still plenty of other options to choose from if you’re not an avid follower of “The Sport of Kings”. On the diamond, there are several intriguing series’ that will kick off the season’s second month. Already some interesting stories have unfolded. Several expected contenders are struggling, while many projected doormats are at or near the top of their respective divisions. It’s was a typical April as well, dominated by pitching, and streaking teams of all sorts. We’ll go through much of that as we preview this weekend’s top action while also delivering some of the Top StatFox Power Trends for you to consider in your wagering.

One month into the ’09 campaign, the three teams with the top records in baseball reside in the National League, and all are atop their divisions. In the Central, St. Louis owns the league’s top mark at 16-7, having gone 8-2 in its L10 contests. This weekend, the Cardinals are visiting, ironically, the league’s worst club, Washington, who sport’s a 5-16 mark. Life against the lowly Nationals has not been easy for St. Louis lately however, as prior to Thursday’s series opening win by the Cards, the teams had split their last 12 games. In the East, division leading Florida has gotten hot again, and travels to face one of its favorite opponents, the Cubs. The Marlins have been very streaky, winning their last three games after dropping their prior seven. In this head-to-head series, Florida has won 10 of the last 14 meetings. The West leading Dodgers are at home for a 4-game set vs. San Diego. L.A. won Thursday’s opener to extend to a 3-1/2 game lead in the division. The Padres are just 2-8 since opening the season on a 9-3 surge. Finally, red-hot Milwaukee, winners of eight of its L10 games, hosts Arizona in a 4-game set as well. The Brewers boast this weekend’s most prolific Top Trend in terms of won-lost percentage. See below.

In the junior circuit this weekend, the highlight series features a rematch of last year’s A.L. Championship tilt, and if Thursday’s series opener is any indication, the Rays will be picking up where they left off in October. Tampa Bay whipped Boston 13-0 in that contest, outhitting the Red Sox 18-1. The Rays are now 7-3 versus Boston in the L10 series meetings, and will need to extend that run if they are to chip into the 5-1/2 games currently separating the teams in the standings. Elsewhere in the American League, two of the preseason favorites for the pennant get together in New York, as the Yankees host the Angels. Neither team has played playoff caliber baseball to this point, but perhaps the turn of the calendar can inject a fire. Even despite New York’s 7-4 win in the series opener on Thursday, the Halos still own a 13-7 edge in the head-to-head series dating back to ’07.
