MLB: Angels and Red Sox look to rebound on Monday2010-05-03
As if things weren’t bad enough for the Boston Red Sox after their first losing April in 14 years, they were swept by the worst team in the majors to begin May. Coming off three straight losses to the Orioles, the Red Sox look to get it turned around starting on Monday. The Angels have similar aspirations though, having just been swept at Detroit. Sportsbook.com oddsmakers are siding with the BoSox, installing them as -160 favorites for the teams’ 7 PM ET start.
Even a return to Fenway Park is not as reassuring as it once was for Boston. The Red Sox hope their upcoming 10-game homestand brings better results than their last one - starting Monday night against the Angels, who eliminated Boston from the 2009 playoffs in their last appearance at Fenway.
Los Angeles has faced the Red Sox in an AL division series each of the last three years, and the Angels finally managed to beat Boston with a three-game sweep in October.
The Red Sox (11-14, -8.5 units) will need to climb out of an early hole if they hope to reach the playoffs again. Their first sub-.500 April since 1996 was sealed with Friday night’s 5-4 loss at Baltimore, where Boston then dropped two more over the weekend.
Following their 12-9 win over the Red Sox on Saturday night, the lowly Orioles completed the sweep with a 3-2, 10-inning victory Sunday, scoring the winning run off closer Jonathan Papelbon.
“A sweep’s a sweep. It’s frustrating for us, to go home like that,” starter Josh Beckett said. “We’ve got to go out and win games. It doesn’t matter what month it is.” The Red Sox are only 2-7 at home off a road trip of a week or more.
Boston only won four of 10 on its last homestand, slipping to 5-8 at Fenway. The team went 56-25 at home each of the last two years, the best home record in the majors in that stretch.
This season’s club has had problems in all areas. The Red Sox were held to seven hits Sunday, playing without cleanup hitter Kevin Youkilis (groin). Outfielders Jacoby Ellsbury and Mike Cameron are on the disabled list. Boston’s pitchers allowed 12 runs for the second time on the road trip Saturday, and the team made four errors in three games against Baltimore. “We’re going to have to regroup in a hurry and figure it out,” manager Terry Francona said.
The Angels (12-14, -3.7) are only one half-game ahead of Boston, but their chances of recovering are much better in the AL West. The Red Sox already trail Tampa Bay by seven games and the New York Yankees by 5 1/2.
Los Angeles, however, will also be trying to rebound from a sweep after beginning its 10-game trip with three straight losses at Detroit. The Angels were limited to four hits in a 5-1 defeat Sunday. It may not be much easier against Clay Buchholz, who has been an early bright spot for the Red Sox.
Buchholz (2-2, 2.19 ERA, 1.297 WHIP) turned in his best outing of the season Tuesday at Toronto, allowing one run in eight innings of a 2-1 victory. The Game 3 starter for Boston in last year’s playoffs, Buchholz held the Angels to two runs in five-plus innings and was in position for a victory until Papelbon blew the save in Los Angeles’ 7-6, series-clinching win.
Buchholz hasn’t found similar success against the Angels in the regular season, going 1-2 with a 6.35 ERA and is 5-13 (-12.9 Units) against the money line vs. teams who strand 6.9 or less runners on-base per game over the last three seasons. (Red Sox Record)
Los Angeles’ Joe Saunders is 4-1 with a 3.24 ERA in his career against Boston and 3-0 with a 2.84 ERA at Fenway, but the left-hander has gotten off to a rough start in 2010. Saunders (1-4, 5.74, 1.575) gave up three runs, nine hits and four walks in five innings of a 9-2 loss to Cleveland on Tuesday and the Halos are just 1-6 in his last seven starts as underdog.
Sportsbook.com has Boston as -160 ML choice with total at 9.5. The Red Sox are 11-4 when Buchholz is the starting hurler and is 6-2 OVER when he takes the ball. The Angels are 25-17 (+18.7 Units) as an underdog of +125 to +175 and is 13-3 UNDER vs. teams with losing record.
This is the ESPN Monday telecast which begins at 7:00 Eastern with Los Angeles 8-4 at Fenway since 2008.
System Play shows Washington at disadvantage2009-08-19
The Washington Nationals are like the dimmest bulb on a set of outdoor lights, they standout for not shining brightly. While the Nationals have a comfortable lead as the worst team in baseball with 43-76 record (-24.1 units), they do deserve props for playing like paid professionals and not throwing in the towel. Even with last night’s loss, Washington has won eight of 12, thanks to a potent offense that has average 6.6 runs per game, compared to season average of 4.5 runs per contest. (Be certain to review all the latest information for Wednesday’s wagering events by visiting the LIVE ODDS, BETTING TRENDS, and TEAM STATISTICS pages.)
In spite of playing better baseball, the Nationals have earned their stripes as the worst team in the game. Washington has the highest earned run average in the National League at 4.98. When the starting pitchers fail, which is often the case, a collection of less than desirable relievers take their place, with an even worse ERA (5.07). Washington’s non-starters have brought little relief as 17-33 record proves and the recent spike in run production has helped the closers get over the .500 mark (.533) since the first week of the season.
The Nats were 4-3 losers to Colorado last night in Game 1 of the series and will face the ace of the Rockies staff, Jason Marquis (13-8, 3.55 ERA). The veteran right-hander has embraced pitching for Colorado and has spearheaded a staff which has contributed mightily to the Rockies leading the wild card race in the senior circuit, while within striking distance of the division leading Los Angeles Dodgers.
Colorado (66-53, +10.6 units) is giving no indication of fading away, winning seven of last 11 and continuing to play surprisingly well on the road with 34-30 record, despite a team batting average of .238.
Colorado is 30-14 (+21.5 Units) against the money line after three or more consecutive road games this season and will face starter Collin Balester (1-2, 6.00), who has been allowing the long ball early and often. The rookie right-hander has surrendered three homers and five runs in each of his last two outings. Washington comes into this contest 13-34 revenging a one run loss to opponent over the last two seasons.
If this doesn’t sound like a great situation for Washington, it’s not and Colorado is a -160 money line favorite at Sportsbook.com. Here is the situation the Nationals face tonight.
Play Against home underdogs with a money line of +125 to +175, who are ordinary offensive team scoring 4.3 to 4.8 runs per game, against a good NL starter (ERA of 3.70 or less), after a loss by two runs or less.
This system has been a reliable winner for a dozen years at 52-14, 78.8 percent. For the most part, these games have not been close, opening the door for potential run line action, with a score differential 2.6 runs. Take a closer look at this contest, the odds lineup in the bettor’s favor on the road favorite.
