Indians, Yankees, And Nationals Are All Playing Catch-Up In Their Divisions

Posted by Dale “Skip” Lalonde on 7/9/2013 6:57:45 PM

It’s the second week of July, one week before the All-Star break. Teams that are trailing in their divisions want to make a strong push over the next several days.

Game 1: Toronto Blue Jays @ Cleveland Indians – Wednesday, July 10

A sound sports betting play doesn’t have to reinvent the wheel. It just needs to look at the existing facts and parameters of a given matchup and make the appropriate evaluation in response. Such is the case for this Wednesday’s encounter between the Blue Jays and the Indians. Toronto made a strong charge in the standings, winning 11 games in a row at one point and crawling a few games above the .500 mark. However, over the past few weeks, the Blue Jays have cooled off and are now a few games under the break-even point. Toronto no longer deserves the benefit of the doubt it might have enjoyed for at least a week or so in June. The Blue Jays shouldn’t be trusted at this point.

The other half of the equation here is that Cleveland will be sending its staff ace, Justin Masterson, to the bump in this game. Masterson is coming off a tough outing at home last Friday against the Detroit Tigers. He will be highly motivated to bounce back and throw his best stuff at Toronto’s batting order. Masterson has a live arm with electric stuff. He usually generates great late movement in the strike zone and is hard to hit cleanly. Trust Masterson more than Toronto’s batting order. Pick the Indians in this situation.

Game 2: Kansas City Royals @ New York Yankees – Wednesday, July 10

The community of online sports betting specialists, though perhaps beginning to look ahead to football season, would still be able to look at this contest in a sober manner and take the Yankees. New York rates as the better betting play at the moment. For one thing, the fact that the Yankees lost at home to Kansas City on Monday night should only increase their odds of winning on Wednesday, because New York should certainly be expected to win a series at home against the Royals. The other main reason to pick the Yankees here is that Kansas City is going with Wade Davis as its starter. Davis has an ERA of 5.42, putting him well below the Royals’ other more accomplished starters such as Ervin Santana and James Shields. New York should be able to hit Davis hard and produce a comfortable victory.

MLB Betting Pick: New York Yankees

Game 3: Washington Nationals @ Philadelphia Phillies – Wednesday, July 10

Football betting or basketball betting number-crunchers might look at this game as a chance to brush up on their baseball awareness. All in all, the advantage should go to the Phillies in this tilt. Washington’s Gio Gonzalez is a good major-league pitcher, but Philadelphia ace Cliff Lee is a terrific, top-tier pitcher. Lee will outduel Gonzalez and lead the Phils to a triumph.

MLB Betting Pick: Philadelphia
