MLB: Streaks, Tips, Notes

Yankees at Mets

Mets nipping Yankees 2-1 in the opener of the subway series try to make it two in-a-row handing the ball to Matt Harvey (5-0, 1.93 ERA). Harvey coming off his roughest outing of the season allowing 4 runs over 6 1/3 getting tagged with a ND in the 7-4 loss to Cincinnati has never faced Bronx Bombers as a starter. Harvey will be opposed by Hiroki Kuroda (6-3, 2.67 ERA) sporting a 2-5 record vs Mets with his teams (NYY/LAD) 3-5 over eight starts. Metropolitans' victory brought it's subway series mark since 2008 to 12-19 split between 6-10 at home, 6-9 at Yankee Stadium. The betting market is expecting another Met win today. Metropolitans are -$1.25 to -$1.45 favorite over Yankees entering 1-4 in May as road underdogs w/Kuroda, 3-9 last twelve as road underdogs of +$115 to +$1.30

Cubs at White Sox

White Sox-Cubs play the second of this home/home set at U.S. Cellular Field before shifting to Wrigley Field on the North Side for the final two games between these Windy City rivals. White Sox spanked 7-0 in the opener remain 19-12 vs Cubbies going back to 2008 split between 10-6 on the South Side, 9-6 on the North Side. Pale Hose thrive in inter-league play as they're 67-50 the past 7 years posting a 34-24 mark at home, 33-26 stretch on the road. Cubbies on the other hand have been poor bets in IL action going 41-53 over the same span with a losing record both at home (23-25, -$618) and away (18-28, -$556). Looking at the South Side past track both against the North Side and other N.L. teams along with having Chris Sale (5-2, 2.53 ERA, 0-0 vs Cubs), John Danks (0-0, 4.50 ERA, 3-1 vs Cubs), Jake Peavy (6-2, 2.97 ERA, 7-3 vs Cubs) scheduled the next three days Pale Hose should take the series when all said done.

MLB Odds and Picks
By: The Linemakers

The Mets’ Matt Harvey may have come back to earth a bit after a white-hot start to the season, but he’s still among the best pitchers in the National League and remains firmly in the Cy Young conversation.

Since recording the win in his first four outings of the season, Harvey has just one win and five no-decisions over his next six starts. The Mets are 3-3 in those games. One of those no-decisions was a scintillating one-hit, nine-inning effort at home against the White Sox, in which he struck out 12 and walked none. The Mets got the winning run in the 10th inning.

Harvey has yet to be tagged with a loss this year.

Tuesday, Harvey (5-0, 1.93 ERA) faces the Yankees, who send Hiroki Kuroda to the Citi Field mound. Kuroda (6-3, 2.67 ERA) has been solid in his own right, but the Yankees’ makeshift lineup figures to be no match for Harvey.

At -123, Harvey’s a bargain. The opportunity to take this rising star at such a cheap a price won’t present itself often.

Elsewhere on MLB’s exclusively interleague Tuesday slate, the Phillies bring Cliff Lee to Fenway Park to face Boston’s Ryan Dempster.

After an inconsistent first month of the season, Lee has looked like his former self over this last four starts. He’s allowed just four earned runs and is 3-0 over that stretch, and his last outing was a complete-game shutout in Miami.

Two of the Red Sox’s biggest offensive threats have not had a lot of success vs. Lee – David Ortiz is .207 lifetime against Lee, and Jacoby Ellsbury is 1-for-12 off of him.

Dempster, on the other hand, has been getting slapped around this season (2-5, 4.69 ERA) and has given up a combined 15 earned runs over this last three starts. The Red Sox are 1-3 over his last four outings, and he hasn’t picked up a win since May 2.

And Lee is the dog in this spot? When we see the chance to get the better pitcher at plus-money, we’re usually on it.

Tuesday’s selections

Mets (Harvey) -123

Phillies (Lee) +115

Season-to-date record: 99-89-1 (+1045)
