July 8, 2012 AL Game Previews MLB Betting

July 08, 2012

The Yankees and Red Sox close the first half of the MLB season on ESPN’s Sunday Night Baseball and the Sox look to hand the Yanks’ Ivan Nova his second straight road loss after he hadn’t been beaten away from home in more than a year. Bet on Yankees-Red Sox and every game at WagerWeb.com.

Kansas City at Detroit – Royals LHP Everett Teaford (1-1, 4.70) vs. Tigers RHP Max Scherzer (7-5, 4.98): Teaford earned another start following his first win on Monday as he tries to secure a permanent spot in the rotation. This will be his fourth start. In two stays at Triple-A Omaha this year, he was 4-0 with a 1.09 ERA in seven games. … Scherzer has rounded into his 2010 form over his last three starts, allowing five runs on 14 hits over 20 innings with three walks and 26 strikeouts. He fanned nine Twins over 5 1/3 innings in a victory at Target Field on May 26. We Like KC.

Tampa Bay at Cleveland – Rays RHP James Shields (8-5, 4.11) vs. Indians RHP Zach McAllister (3-1, 3.93): Shields picked up his eighth win of the season by pitching seven innings with five strikeouts, allowing four runs on 10 hits against the Yankees on Tuesday. … McAllister overcame a five-run fifth inning to beat the Angels in his last outing, thanks in part to solid run support. He allowed three earned runs — five total — over six frames, moving to 2-0 in two starts since returning from Triple-A Columbus. We like McAllister and Cleveland.

Toronto at Chicago White Sox – Jays LHP Brett Cecil (2-1, 5.64) vs. White Sox TBA: Cecil threw his second quality start of the season and bounced back after his worst outing of the year to improve to 2-1. In four starts since being recalled from the Minors, Cecil has a 5.64 ERA, but has allowed three runs or less in three of them. … This would normally be White Sox ace Chris Sale’s spot, but the team is going to skip him to get Sale extra rest in his first season as a starter. That could line up Sale to start in Tuesday’s All-Star Game.  hey could make a call-up to start, or, depending on who’s fresh with a four-day break following Sunday, use several pitchers. We like Tonto.

Baltimore at LA Angels – Orioles LHP Wei-Yen Chen (7-4, 3.64) vs. Angels TBA: Chen tossed 6.1 perfect innings Tuesday before allowing a solo home run by Seattle’s Casper Wells as the Orioles held off the Mariners. Chen didn’t factor in the decision, though. Chen went 7.1 innings, giving up two runs on two hits and no walks with a career best nine strikeouts. … This would normally be Dan Haren’s spot for the Halos but he went on the DL earlier this week for the first time in his career. The likely spot starter will be Triple-A lefty Brad Mills. We like Angels.

Seattle at Oakland – Mariners RHP Felix Hernandez (6-5, 3.26) vs. A’s RHP Bartolo Colon (6-7, 4.05): Hernandez exited after allowing the Orioles to get to him in the sixth inning for four runs on just 90 pitches on Tuesday. Coming off a 128-pitch start, though, Hernandez should be much fresher for his final start before the All-Star break. … Colon was effective in his first start since coming off the disabled list, holding the Red Sox to two runs over six innings. His two-seam fastball wasn’t as sharp as normal, but he was able to compensate with a higher velocity four-seam fastball. Bet the Mariners here.

Minnesota at Texas – Twins RHP Cole De Vries (2-1, 3.91) vs. Rangers RHP Roy Oswalt (2-1, 7.79): De Vries was recalled from Triple-A Rochester on Tuesday after Liam Hendriks struggled in his start, and is slated to make his fifth start of the year. He was solid against the Royals on Saturday, allowing one run on five hits over six innings. … Oswalt is coming off one of the worst starts of his career, a forgettable performance against the White Sox in which he gave up a career-high 11 runs (nine earned). The righty also has allowed a career-high 13 hits in each of his last two starts. Take the Twins in Our Opinion.

NY Yankees at Boston – Yankees RHP Ivan Nova (9-3, 4.05) vs. Red Sox LHP Jon Lester (5-5, 4.33): Nova struggled with his fastball command in Tuesday’s loss to the Rays, giving up six runs (three earned) on seven hits and two walks while striking out five. It was Nova’s first loss since May 19 and his first on the road since June 3, 2011. … Lester matched a season high with nine strikeouts Tuesday with a strong changeup. He hasn’t faced the Yanks yet this year. They roughed him up in 2011, to the tune of a 6.66 ERA and 2-2 record in five starts. Boston at home is our pick.
