The Daily Gambling Fix 8/18/11 – Megan Daniels
The Game: Los Angeles Dodgers @ Milwaukee Brewers
The Reason: The Dodgers haven’t played in a game over seven runs since August 10, but they will this afternoon in Milwaukee. Even with Clayton Kershaw on the bump, the Dodgers are due to whip out the bats after scoring just two runs in the first three games against the Brewers, and the Brewers will score off Kershaw, too. Marco Estrada, who in just his fifth start of the season gave up zero earned runs through five innings last week, is starting for the Brewers. This might look like an otherwise very easy game to pick the under, but I’m telling you that’s exactly what they want you to bet. Go with the over.
The Game: Texas Rangers @ Los Angeles Angels
The Reason: This one is another one that will lure you into betting under, but will go over. Cy Young candidate Jered Weaver, on the rubber for the Angels, has just a 2.13 ERA this season, but he got rocked in his last start, allowing eight earned runs in 4.2 innings. Colby Lewis, starting for the Rangers, has been inconsistent this season and, despite coming off of a good start, has not been good against the Angels in his career (4.94 ERA). The Rangers have not played in a game that’s seen the under since July 30 and I don’t expect to see them end that streak here.
