Five Things You Need to Know for Wed., Sept. 12

5 Things You Need to Know in Sports

Want to start your day off right? Looking for the most interesting events of the day and a few games to lay action on? There is a full schedule in baseball tonight as football goes later this week. Here is a brief look at the top four important matchups of the day along with a glance at future odds.

1)NY Yankees at Boston, David Phelps (3-4, 3.55 ERA ) vs. Aaron Cook (3-9, 5.17ERA)

This is not exactly a matchup of Cy Young Award-winners. Aaron Cook hit the wall and can't climb over. He is 0-2 with a 6.75 ERA and a 1.70 WHIP in his last three starts. David Phelps has had a decent year but is pitching even worse than Cook as of late, posting a 7.20 ERA in his last three starts. On July 27 in the Bronx, Cook allowed 6 runs in 4 innings, including two home runs. NY Yankees are 11-5 L16 in series. NY Yankees opened as a -150 favorite with a total of 10.

2)Tampa Bay at Baltimore, Alex Cobb (9-8, 4.28 ERA) vs. Miguel Gonzalez (6-4, 3.62 ERA)

The key series of the night between two teams battling for the wild card spot and even the AL East title. Cobb is a weak link in the Rays' rotation while Gonzalez has been a pleasant surprise. Baltimore needs a lift from OF Nate McClouth, who has to lead-off now that Nick Markakis is out for the regular season with an injury.  Baltimore is 2-7 UNDER last 9 in series at home. Baltimore opened as a -110 favorite with a total of 8.5.
3)Miami at Philadelphia, Josh Johnson (8-11, 3.81 ERA) vs. Cliff Lee (4-7, 3.50 ERA)

Here is an excellent pitching matchup between two aces, who are not having great seasons. Cliff Lee is having one of the hardest-luck seasons in recent memory but he did beat Atlanta two starts ago . In his last start against Colorado, he allowed just 2 runs in 6 1/3 IP and got another no-decision. Philadelphia has crept back up to close to .500 and are not completely out of it. Philadelphia is 16-5-1 Over last 22 Wednesday games. The Phillies opened as a -155 favorite with a total of 7.

4)Washington at NY Mets, John Lannan (2-0, 3.46 ERA) vs. Matt Harvey  (3-4, 3.04 ERA)

This should have been Stephen Strasburg's last start. But the team shut him down after a poor start last Friday against the Marlins. John Lannan is a veteran lefty who takes his place. Think there is some pressure on Lannan and the organization in this game? He takes on a pretty good pitcher in Matt Harvey.  Washington is 10-1 L11 on the road in this series. Washington opened as a -110 favorite with a total of 8. 

5)Odds to Win the BCS Championship

The top teams haven't changed much after the first two weeks in college football. USC, Alabama and LSU will likely be battling it out all year. Will Florida State, Georgia, Oregon or Oklahoma put themselves in the picture as the fourth team? Here are the latest odds to win the BCS National Championship from Bovada.
