Zack Greinke's career in Arizona got off to a rough start, as he was torched for seven runs on nine hits in a home loss to Colorado in his Diamondbacks debut. He followed that up with another home loss to the Cubs, but has since delivered consecutive dominant performances in a pair of road wins. He will get a chance to pick up his first home win of the season against the Cardinals, and he's 2-1 with a 2.49 ERA in four starts versus St. Louis since 2013.Read More

Nobody would have expected 23 year old Vincent Velasquez to be one of two major league pitchers to have an ERA of 0.00 so far this season. His 26 strikeouts are second to only Noah Syndergaard, who has 29 but has started one more game.

At one point last season the Tigers went over in 19 consecutive games. They have gone over in six of seven games so far this year, and they are in Houston this weekend for a three game series against the Astros. Houston has gone over in six of nine so far, and it's bullpen has been brutal posting an ERA of 6.16 in those games. The over is 37-15-4 in Tigers last 56 road games.Read More

Rookie shortstop Trevor Story is the first player in history to hit home runs in each of his first three major league games. Since he plays for the Rockies, some might assume that Coors Field has aided his prolific start. In fact the Rockies started the season on the road at Arizona, and all four of his home runs so far came at Chase Field.Read More

The Rangers won Game 1 of this series versus LA by a score of 5-3, falling just short of the total. Low scoring games have been few and far between for the Rangers, who have gone over at a rate of 12-4-2 in their last 18 overall. They've also gone over at a rate of 6-1-1 in their last eight home meetings with LA.Read More

JOHNNY BE GOOD - The Royals thought they had finally acquired a true ace when they picked up Johnny Cueto at the trade deadline, but the deal hasn't worked out as well as they had hoped. Ceuto went 2-6 in his first eight starts for the Royals, but he's since put together back to back quality starts, and he looked good in a home win over Seattle his last time out. His next start comes on the road in Chicago, and he's 1-1 with a 7.15 ERA in two previous starts versus the White Sox.

The Pittsburgh Pirates won the series opener in Colorado by a score of 9-3, and high scoring games have been the norm at Coors Field lately. The Pirates have seen their fair share of high scoring contests as well, going over in 15 of their last 21 overall. The over is 18-7-2 in the Rockies last 27 home games versus a team with a winning road record.Read More

The Orioles took two of three from the Royals over the Weekend, and they hit a whopping 10 home runs in the series. Baltimore has seen the total go over in nine of it's last 12, while the Red Sox have trended over at a rate of 10-3-1 in it's last 14 road games. We could see more fireworks at Camden Yards this week.Read More

Houston, We Have A Problem.. The Astros have lost four of their last six overall, and Texas is hot on their heels. The Rangers have won six of seven and 15 of their last 20 overall, and trail Houston by only two games. The Astros will host the Twins in a three game series at Minutemaid Park this weekend, and Houston has the second best home record in the American League (46-23). Minnesota is just 27-38 on the road this season.Read More

The Toronto Blue Jays may not have the best record in baseball, but they are without a doubt the team that nobody wants to play in the playoffs. The Jays have won 24 of their last 29 overall, and they lead the majors in runs scored by a country mile. While it was their offense that carried them in the first half of the season, in recent weeks their defense and pitching staff have been equal to the task. The Jays host Cleveland this week, and they'll be heavy favorites in all three games.Read More

Cruz Control - Seattle's Nelson Cruz has seized control of the home run race, his 39 homers so far are four more than Baltimore's Chris Davis who is second in the majors. Cruz is on a tear in the second half, batting .346 since the All Star Break. The Mariners are in Chicago this weekend, and John Danks will start Game 1, and Cruz is batting .304 with a home run and 4 RBIs lifetime versus Danks.Read More

We think of Safeco as one of the most pitcher friendly parks in the majors, but that hasn't been the case lately. The Mariners have seen the total go over at a rate of 20-5-3 in their last 28 home games. Their bullpen can take a lot of the blame, only two teams in the majors (Oakland and Colorado) rank worse than the Mariners who's relievers own a 4.45 ERA this season.

Gerrit Cole has been stuck on 14 wins since July, and that has allowed Jake Arrieta to take over the major league lead with his 15th win on Thursday night at Wrigley. Cole will get a chance to draw level as he starts at home against the Giants this Saturday. Cole is 1-0 with a 0.00 ERA versus the Giants this year, and he's won all three of his career starts against San Francisco.Read More

Madison Bumgarner is starting to look like the World Series MVP that he was last year. He tossed a complete game (one-hit) shutout, striking out 14 in a win over the Nats on Sunday. That wasn't all, he was 2-for-3 with a double and a home run in the victory. His next start comes on Friday in Pittsburgh.Read More

Houston, We Have A Problem ...
The Astros can't seem to win on the road. They've dropped six of seven on their current road trip, and now own a record of 23-34 away from home this season. They will be in San Francisco for the final two games of this West Coast swing on Tuesday and Wednesday. The Giants have won eight of their last nine at AT&T Park.Read More

Clayton Kershaw will look to extend a streak of 37 consecutive scoreless innings in Pittsburgh on Friday night. It's not going to be an easy task, as the Pirates are notoriously tough at PNC Park. The Dodgers road record is below .500, and Pittsburgh has won 42 of it's last 60 home games versus teams with a losing road record.Read More

The Toronto Blue Jays are by far the highest scoring team in the major leagues, but perhaps the bookmakers are overcompensating with high totals in Blue Jays games. The Jays have been a hot bet to go under at home this season, and they've failed to reach the total in seven of their last 10 at Rogers Center. They are hosting a Twins team that comes into Tuesday's game having seen the under hit at a rate of 9-1-2 in their last 12 road games.Read More

As far as Blue Jays fans are concerned, the rest of the league might as well just waive a white flag. The acquisition of Troy Tulowitzki, Ben Revere and David Price at the deadline certainly makes the Jays a serious contender, but I think it's a little premature to start planning the parade. There's still a glaring weakness at the back end of the rotation, and it won't be easy to catch the Yankees.Read More

I've been saying it for months now, "The Cubs are the most overrated team in baseball". Bettors learned that the hard way this weekend, as they were swept at home by the cellar dwelling Phillies. and the average price to back the Cubs in those games was higher than -200. They've been listed as the favorite in 17 of their 22 games this month, winning only eight of those. Something to think about before backing the Cubbies as a favorite.Read More

The Marlins might not be the hottest team in the majors, but if bettors thought that fading the Fish would be easy money after Stanton's injury, they were sadly mistaken. Miami is 10-10 over it's last 20 games, and they are 4-8 since losing Dee Gordon. That might make you think twice about laying the chalk to bet against Miami.Read More

Zack Greinke tossed eight scoreless innings, striking out 11 in a win opposite Mad Max Scherzer in the nation's capital on Sunday, and his scoreless streak now sits at 43 2/3 innings. It's fair to say that he's currently the favorite to win the Cy Young Award in the National League. His miniscule 1.30 ERA isn't just the best in the majors, but he's the only pitcher with an ERA under 2.00.Read More
