Betting Baseball: Lester and the Red Sox Try to Cool Down Hot Dodgers

Boston Red Sox (+113) at Los Angeles Dodgers (-122, 7 O/U )

The Dodgers continue to roll and are now 46-10 over their last 56 games. It looks like the oddsmakers haven’t bought into them yet, however. -122 seems to be a short price for a team like Los Angeles playing at home with one of their top starters going for them. Left-hander Jon Lester takes the mound tonight for the road team Red Sox. He is 11-7 on the year with a 4.09 ERA. Lester is a Dodgers Stadium virgin in his long career; this will be his first career start at Dodger Stadium. He has been throwing well lately, going 3-1 with a 2.52 ERA since the All-Star break. However, the level of competition hasn’t been great. Lester fired 8 1/3 shutout innings in his last start to beat the Giants.

The Los Angeles Dodgers will send Hyun-jin Ryu out as their starter; he has a 12-4 record so far in 2013. Ryu thrives at home this year; he will come into this game with a 1.70 ERA at Dodger Stadium. He gave up three earned runs in seven innings in his last outing, striking out five Marlins while walking just two. The game time temperature will be 83° F with winds blowing out at 9 mph. The humidity will be around 33%. No rain is expected in this game.

                                          Dodgers Go For the Sweep Against Marlins

                                          Los Angeles Dodgers (-235) at Miami Marlins (+214, 6 O/U )

                                          The sizzling hot Dodgers will look for a sweep as they take on the Miami Marlins in a Thursday afternoon getaway game. Left-hander Clayton Kershaw, 12-7 with a 1.80 earned run average in 2013, will be the starting pitcher for the Dodgers in their road matchup with the Marlins. Kershaw has become a dominating machine as he attempts to lock down his second Cy Young Award and become the third pitcher in history to lead the NL in ERA three or more consecutive seasons. Kershaw leads the major leagues in ERA and innings pitched (190 1-3), and is second in the NL with 182 strikeouts. He’s also been a major contributor in the team’s surge, going 7-2 with a 1.40 ERA while limiting opponents to a .159 batting average over his last 10 outings. “One thing he does is he attacks the strike zone just pitch after pitch,” manager Don Mattingly said. “He’s going to be around it and he’s going to make you hit him, and it’s not like he’s going to waste a lot of pitches.”The Dodgers have gone over the total in just 39% of his starts.

                                          Right-hander Henderson Alvarez will take the mound for the home team. Four walks marred what could have been a much more productive last start for Alvarez, who lost to the Giants. He gave up four runs in seven innings. He was hurt by a four-run fourth inning, in which he walked two. Since going 2-0 with a 1.33 ERA in his last four July starts, Alvarez is 0-1 with a 4.95 ERA in three August outings. The Marlins, 3-6 in his starts, have gone over just 38% of the time in those starts. Temperatures are expected to be around 87°F at game time tonight. Humidity will be at 70%.

                                                                                  Arizona Diamondbacks (+156) at Cincinnati Reds (-170, 8 O/U )

                                                                                  Arizona’s race for the final wild-card slot to a blow when the Diamondbacks lost to the Reds 10-7 last night, but will get one final shot at Cincinnati on Thursday afternoon. Arizona is six games behind the Reds for the second wild card spot. Right-hander Trevor Cahill takes the mound for the Diamondbacks. He is 4-10 on the year with a 4.78 ERA. Cahill, just off the DL, allowed four runs in five innings against the Pirates last time out. “I didn’t pitch great, but we won, so I’m just going to use that as positive and look at some video and work on some stuff,” Cahill, who went 0-6 with a 7.91 ERA over his previous eight starts, said.

                                                                                  The Cincinnati Reds will send right-hander Mat Latos out as their starter; he has a 12-4 record so far in 2013. Latos was the tough-luck loser in a 2-0 loss against the Brewers on Saturday after giving up two runs in seven innings. “That’s just the way the game goes,” said Latos, who allowed both runs in the fourth inning of his last start. “Two runs will beat you on any given day.” In seven career starts against the D-backs, Latos is 3-1 with a 2.89 ERA, including a June 23 gem against them this season. The game time temperature will be 83°F with winds blowing out at 7 mph. The humidity will be around 65%. There is a 10% chance of precipitation.

                                                                                  Arizona Diamondbacks versus Latos: 25 years old right-hander, 6’6” 225 pounds. Throws: fastball, slider, curve, changeup

                                                                                                                          Houston Astros (+258) at Texas Rangers (-285, 9 O/U )

                                                                                                                          If the Texas Rangers win the West, they will be able to thank the Houston Astros. The first year of inter-division play between the two Texas teams has been a beatdown; the Rangers have won thirteen of the fifteen matchups this year and are looking for the sweep tonight in Arlington.

                                                                                                                          Left-hander Erik Bedard takes the mound tonight for the road team Astros. He is 3-9 on the year with a 4.67 ERA. The veteran lefty is looking for his first win since June 26. He’s 0-6 with a 4.57 ERA in his last eight starts, although his poor run support gets part of the blame. The Astros have scored just 14 runs in his last eight starts. The Astros are 6-16 in games started by him.

                                                                                                                          The Texas Rangers will send left-hander Derek Holland out as their starter; he has a 9-6 record so far in 2013. Holland had his third start this season of seven or more innings with two hits allowed or fewer Friday against the Mariners. He hasn’t won at home over his past seven starts. The left-hander has received two runs or fewer of support in nine starts. “I know they are doing everything they can,” Holland said. “That’s the way baseball is. You’ve just got to take the runs when they come. There may be nights when I don’t get past the third inning and they score 60 runs.”

                                                                                                                          The Rangers, 16-9 in his starts, have gone over 42% of the time in those starts. The game time temperature will be 91°F with winds blowing in from right field at 7 mph. The humidity will be around 36%. No rain is expected in this game.

                                                                                                                                                                  The Mariners are certainly making things hard for the A’s in Oakland’s race for the playoffs. Seattle won 7-4 yesterday thanks to a five run eighth inning, capped off by a key hit from shortstop Ryan Franklyn. Oakland is now 1.5 games behind Texas in the AL West race. Right-hander Hisashi Iwakuma, 11-6 with a 2.89 earned run average in 2013, will be the starting pitcher for Seattle in their road matchup with the Oakland Athletics. Iwakuma makes his fifth start of the season against the A’s, having gone 2-2 with a 3.96 ERA in four meetings and splitting a pair of games in Oakland. Iwakuma beat Texas 3-1 on Friday to snap a three-start winless streak. He allowed one run in seven innings, striking out seven in the process. The Mariners are 15-11 in games started by Iwakuma, and have gone over 58% of those games.

                                                                                                                                                                  Right-hander A.J. Griffin will take the mound for the home team. Griffin has allowed 11 walks in 10 2/3 innings over his past two starts after allowing 12 over 64 innings in his previous 10. He limited the Indians to a lone unearned run in five innings his last start, walking five and giving up four hits. “The ball was up in the zone at times, which you don’t normally see out of him, either,” Oakland manager Bob Melvin said. “He battled himself. He was a little frustrated the whole game with his command.”The Athletics are 15-10 in games started by him. Temperatures are expected to be around 66°F at game time today. Humidity will be at 81%, with the wind blowing out to right field at 10 mph.

                                                                                                                                                                                                          Tampa Bay, struggling out of the gates in early August, will try to make it five in a row at Camden Yards when division rivals continue their three game series. The Rays overcame a shaky start from David Price last night to win 4-3 and have climbed within one game of the first place Boston Red Sox. Baltimore, on the other hand, dropped to 4.5 games back in the wild card race. Right-hander Alex Cobb takes the mound tonight for the Rays. He is 7-2 on the year with a 2.94 ERA. Cobb returned from the disabled list without much fanfare Thursday, his first start since being hit on the head with a line drive on June 15. He limited Seattle to one run and three hits over five innings in a 7-1 win. The Rays, 10-4 in his starts, have gone over 54% of the time in those starts.

                                                                                                                                                                                                          The Orioles will send right-hander Miguel Gonzalez out as their starter; he has a 8-5 record so far in 2013. Gonzalez pitched seven solid innings in Arizona in his previous start, allowing just two earned runs, but got his second straight no-decision thanks to a blown save by Baltimore closer Jim Johnson. “I thought Miguel pitched outstanding,” Baltimore manager Buck Showalter said. “He pitched well enough to win.” He is 5-1 with a 4.18 ERA in nine home starts. The Orioles have gone over the total in 47% of his starts. Temperatures are expected to be around 85°F at game time tonight. Humidity will be at 51%, with the wind blowing out at 4 mph.
