AL West Up For Grabs
The Angels hold a slim one game lead on the Astros at the top of the AL West, and the two teams will play Game 1 of a three game series at Minutemaid Park on Tuesday. Recent meetings between these two teams have seen a trend of low scoring games, with the total going under at a rate of 7-2-1 in the last 10. The Astros have won nine of their last 10 in Houston, and their home record of 34-18 is tied with Kansas City for the best in the American League.

Cubs Killing Bettors In July
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.

Home Sweet Home
The Twins aren't getting a lot of love from bookmakers despite owning the 5th best record in the American League. Only two teams have a better home record than Minnesota, and the Twins will play their next six games at Target Field. The Colorado Rockies are the only team in the major leagues with a higher home batting average, and the Twins rank fourth in runs scored at home.

Pitching Notes
*Zack Greinke's
scoreless innings streak ended at 45 2/3 innings with a loss to the Mets in a pitcher's duel at Citi Field. The right-hander still pitched a great game, allowing a pair of runs on just four hits over seven innings. He's still the only pitcher in the major leagues with an ERA below 2.00.

*Andrew Heaney is still perfect in his rookie season with the Los Angeles Angels. The 24 year old southpaw moved to 5-0 with a win over Texas on Sunday. He's limited the opposition to two runs or less, going at least six innings in all six of his starts so far.

Hitting Notes
*Mike Trout
went deep twice against Texas on Sunday, taking over the major league lead with 31 home runs so far this season. He's hitting an incredible .361 with a 11 home runs and 21 RBIs in the month of July. He might be set to cool off a little in Houston, where he's just 8-for-43 over the last two seasons.

*Mike Napoli has been struggling to stay above the Mendoza Line all year long, but the veteran has shown signs of life here lately. He's 10 for his last 25 with a home run and five RBIs. The Red Sox will be at home all week, and he should have a good chance to stay hot against the struggling Chicago White Sox.

Totals Streak
When you think of Safeco Field, you think of a notorious pitcher's park where runs are hard to come by. That certainly hasn't been the case lately, and on Sunday the Blue Jays and the Mariners combined to hit five home runs in a 6-5 extra-innings win for Seattle. That puts the over trend at Safeco at 12-2-2 over the last 16.

Injury Notes
*Freddie Freeman
came of the DL this weekend, and he got the start on Sunday going 1-for-3 in a win over the Braves. He came of the bench on Saturday going 0-for-1.

*Jean Segura was scratched from Sunday's game with a sore throat, and he's listed as day to day.
