The Daily Gambling Fix 8/17/11 – Ashley Hobbs
The Game: New York Yankes @ Kansas City Royals
The Reason: The first two games of the Yankees/Royals series brought in a total of 27 runs, but I don’t see that continuing for Game 3 of the series on Wednesday. Pitching for the Yankees, Bartolo Colon has only allowed two earned runs in each of his last three starts and has been strong all season. Plus, the Royals have not faced the renaissanced Colon yet this season. Meanwhile, the Royals have seen the under in five of their last eight games and will send Bruce Chen out to the mound. Chen is coming off of a shutout gem against the White Sox in Chicago and only seven of his 16 starts this season have gone over the total. Six of the last seven Yankees’ games have gone over, but something smells funny about this Colon/Chen matchup after the first two games of the series saw a total of 27 runs.
The Game: Tampa Bay Rays @ Boston Red Sox
The Reason: The Red Sox are mired in a little bit of a slump, having only scored 20 runs in their last six games and keeping their opponents within two runs of them in all but one of them. The Red Sox bats seem to wake up when John Lackey’s pitching, but David Price is going for the Rays. Only six of Price’s 25 starts have seen the over, with two others seeing a push. Further, Price is coming off of a very impressive win against the Yankees in New York in which he only allowed one run through eight innings. What’s not helping the Red Sox’s lineup is that David Ortiz missed both of Tuesday’s games against the Rays with an illness.
