Dodgers look to finish home sweep of the Padres

by Mike Spector | Dodgers Team Correspondent |
Sun, Aug 7th 11:16am ET

Though the San Diego Padres acquired Juan Soto, Josh Bell, Josh Hader, and others, that has not fazed the Los Angeles Dodgers, who have dominated the Padres by a combined score of 16-4 in the first two games of this series. Los Angeles has lost consecutive games once since June 28 and has won 29 of 34 games since then. The Dodgers are 7-2 head-to-head against the Padres this year... View More

Betting Impact:

Oddsmakers give the Dodgers -135 odds to finish the three-game sweep, per BettingPros consensus odds. Yu Darvish (10-4, 3.30 ERA) has lost just once in his last ten starts and has not had a losing month in any of the season's first four months. Darvish has been an innings-eater, with at least six innings pitched in 13 consecutive starts and quality starts in 11 of those. Darvish's road ERA of 4.50 is more than two runs higher than his home ERA (2.17), and his OBA and WHIP are 81 and 37 points higher, respectively. He is opposed by Tyler Anderson (12-1, 2.89 ERA), who is looking to become MLB's fourth 13-game winner. He has won back-to-back starts and three of his last four, though he was the beneficiary of great run support in his previous start against the Giants. Anderson earned the win despite allowing five earned runs over five innings and lost a 22-inning scoreless streak leading up to that start.

After the Colorado Rockies' 3-2 victory yesterday, they have now won six of their last eight meetings with the Arizona Diamondbacks... View More

However, the Rockies are 8-3 in their last 11 games against teams with a losing record, while Arizona is just 2-6 in its last eight overall.

Braves and Mets bring over streak into Sunday's series finale

by Mike Spector | Braves Team Correspondent |
Sun, Aug 7th 11:09am ET

The over has cashed in each of the last five meetings between the Atlanta Braves and New York Mets, and they bring that streak into the fifth and final game of this current series... View More

Betting Impact:

The Braves-Mets O/U is 7.0 runs, per BettingPros consensus odds. Today’s pitching matchup of Spencer Strider (6-3, 2.79) and Jacob deGrom (0-0, 1.80) is one of the best that we have seen in this five-game series. Each team’s bullpens have worked hard this series after combining to throw 28.1 innings over the last three days. deGrom may be unlikely to throw more than five innings today while still on a strict pitch count in just his second start back from injury. Strider relies a lot on strikeouts, as his 13.76 K/9 leads the entire Braves staff. However, the Mets strike out the second-fewest of any National League team (19.9%).

Orioles look for sixth straight win and sweep of the Pirates

by Mike Spector | Orioles Team Correspondent |
Sun, Aug 7th 9:12am ET

The Baltimore Orioles have won five consecutive games, and look for a sixth straight and subsequent series sweep of the Pittsburgh Pirates... View More

Betting Impact:

The Orioles are -175 moneyline favorites, per BettingPros consensus odds. FanGraphs have its chances at 4.9% despite being one game out of a wild card spot with 55 games to play. That is likely a big reason the Orioles’ moneyline odds have not been too egregious, especially when playing inferior teams, even though they are 24-13 against teams under .500 this season. Conversely, Pittsburgh is 19 games under .500 (17-36) against winning teams. The Orioles are 6-1-1 in their previous eight home series having already clinched this series, and have a pitcher on the mound today in Spenser Watkins (4-1, 3.80), that has led the team to wins in each of his last four starts by a combined score of 21-7. Watkins is opposed by Bryse Wilson (1-6, 6.20).

To put that last metric into perspective, that is better than Cy Young contender Justin Verlander's 3.45 xFIP.

The Baltimore Orioles have won seven consecutive home meetings with the Pittsburgh Pirates, and look for an eighth straight in tonight's series opener... View More

Betting Impact:

The Orioles are -155 moneyline favorites, per BettingPros consensus odds. Today’s pitching matchup is between Mitch Keller (3-7, 4.37) and Dean Kremer (3-3, 3.86). Baltimore swept the Rangers on the road, completing their first-ever season series sweep in the rivalry. The Orioles outscored the Rangers 21-7 and are now a season-high three games over .500. Baltimore has seemingly rallied around the trades of two of their best players and is just 2.0 games back of a wild card spot entering this interleague series. Pittsburgh is coming off a surprising sweep of its own against Milwaukee but is at a scheduling disadvantage, having played yesterday afternoon while Baltimore had the day off. The Pirates lost both games this season when they have been at such a disadvantage. Baltimore is 3-1 in Kremer's last four home starts.

Pivetta looks to lead his team to a fourth win in five road starts against teams with a losing record. Despite winning the series, Boston's offense managed just six total runs over the three games against Houston's elite pitching, but the Royals' 27th-ranked ERA (4.71) pales in comparison to the Astros' second-ranked staff (3.01 ERA).

Betting Impact:

The Mets are -120 moneyline favorites, per BettingPros consensus odds. Today’s pitching matchup is between Kyle Wright (13-4, 2.93) and Carlos Carrasco (11-4, 3.79). While much of New York's rotation is centered around Max Scherzer and Jacob deGrom, Carlos Carrasco (11-4, 3.79) has been an unnoticed gem. Carrasco enters this game having not allowed an earned run in any of his previous three starts, spanning 18 ⅔ innings. He finished July with a 3-0 record and 0.90 ERA and can use that momentum in this opener against Atlanta, whom he held scoreless over eight innings in a May 3rd home start. On the other side, Kyle Wright (13-4, 2.93) has had a similarly productive year for Atlanta. Still, he has not been challenged much lately, as eight of his last 11 starts have come against teams under .500. Wright opposed Carrasco in that May 3rd start and did well to allow just three earned runs over seven innings.

Before adding Soto and Bell, San Diego's offense was getting minimal production from its right fielders and first basemen. Prior to the trade, those positions ranked 27th and 19th in OPS, 29th and 26th in home runs, and 28th and 17th in extra-base hits. Despite those holes, San Diego's offense performed admirably leading up to this point, as its 469 runs ranked in the league's top half. San Diego is eight games over .500 against left-handed starting pitchers (22-14), fifth-best in the majors.

Thu, Aug 4th 8:50am ET

The Oakland Athletics are 8-3 in their last 11 games and have won nine of their last 11 games against right-handed starting pitchers. They bring both of those streaks into today's rubber match of the three-game series against the Los Angeles Angels... View More

Betting Impact:

The Angels are -115 moneyline favorites, per BettingPros consensus odds. Oakland's struggles in the first half of the season were primarily because of an anemic offense that averaged just 3.3 runs per game. However, the A's have improved that number by almost a full run since the All-Star break and has scored at least five runs in six of the 13 games in that span. They now face Angels rookie Janson Junk (1-0, 0.00), who is making just his second start of the season. Los Angeles' offense ranks 22nd in wRC+ and 23rd in slugging over the last 14 days. However, they have a chance for improved success against Oakland's Paul Blackburn (6-6, 4.15), who is winless and has pitched to an 8.05 ERA in his previous seven starts. Blackburn has a 1.74 road ERA compared to an 8.31 ERA at home.

San Francisco has performed much better against left-handed than right-handed starting pitching this year, going 21-16 against southpaws and 30-37 against righties.
