This Day In Sports History (August 25th) – Michael Schumacher
The Daily Gambling Fix 8/25/11 – Amanda Parker
The Game: Boston Red Sox @ Texas Rangers
The Reason: Another game in which the lineups, stadium and the sight of Andrew Miller might coerce you into picking the over, but I’m telling you that this one will be under. Andrew Miller has actually been fairly good in his last four starts, putting up a 3.86 ERA in them. Alexi Ogando, who has been very good this season, is struggling with a 5.46 ERA in his last 5 starts. While the last two games have gone over 14 runs, I expect this one to settle back down to what the first game of their series was. Bet under here.
The Game: Houston Astros @ San Francisco Giants
The Reason: The Astros have gone the over in their last five games, including a game in which Henry Sosa started against the San Francisco Giants. I don’t expect that result to be any different here. The one game that did not go over was a game in which Vogelsong started, but it was because the Astros won 6-0. I expect a better outing from Vogelsong tonight, but I don’t expect that to prevent this game from going over the 7.5 bet.
2011 Record: (159-145-8), This Week: (2-4), Last Week: (4-6)
