New York Yankees at Toronto Blue Jays

When taking a quick glance at the opening game of this three game series between Toronto and New York the first thing that catches the sports handicappers attention is that Yankees have owned the series this season posting an impressive 13-3 mark and that Jays are mired in a 1-5 slump on this current home stand. However, baseball handicapping demands digging a little deeper to get a better take of the situation and looking at the pitching matchup. Those whose focus is baseball betting have certainly done so, and have come up with the fact Jays have won 3 of the it's 4 games with tonight's starter R.A. Dickey and own a smart 5-1 streak opening a home series with the knuckleballer. Those same astute baseball handicappers will have noted New York plans on sending southpaw Andy Pettitte to the mound and that Yankees are 8-17 opening a road series including 2-8 the last ten with a left-handed pitcher. Backing a division basement dweller might not sound like solid baseball betting logic but given the mentioned numbers a case for Toronto can be made.

Zig-Zag Over/Under Trend Showing in MLB Doubleheaders
By Covers.com

The Washington Nationals and Atlanta Braves have been forced to play a doubleheader Tuesday due to Monday’s tragic shooting at a D.C. navy yard which neighbors Nationals Park.

There have been 23 doubleheaders so far this baseball season, with the first game producing a collective 12-10-1 over/under mark and the second installment going 10-12-1 over/under on the year. However, there are some notable trends in recent double-dips that will peak the interest of those sizing up Tuesday’s totals.

There has been a definitive over/under split between Game 1 and Game 2 all season. In the first 13 doubleheaders of the season (April 16 – June 18), the first games posted a 5-7-1 O/U count while the second went 9-3-1 O/U.

In the last 10 MLB doubleheaders (June 19 –September 14), Game 1 has generated a 7-3 O/U record while Game 2 has gone a collective 1-9 O/U.

The Braves (68-73 O/U) and Nationals (75-68 O/U) have played under the total in eight of their past 11 meetings heading into Tuesday’s doubleheader.

MLB Odds and Picks – Giants have been resurgent in September
By: The Linemakers   
Sportingnews.com

LAS VEGAS -- It’s been a miserable year for the San Francisco Giants, although by mid-May, they were sitting atop the NL West and still had visions of winning back-to-back World Series titles. But reality started to set in June, right about the time the Dodgers started their rise from the cellar. From June through August, the Giants compiled a 31-50 record, bad enough to fall to last place in the division.

But so far in September, the Giants have been playing some pretty good ball. They have won six of their last eight games, and Sunday’s win, coupled with a Padres loss, saw San Francisco remove itself from last place. They’ve been getting great pitching nightly and the bats have come alive. All season long the Giants have struggled to get runs, but in September they've scored the second most runs in the NL (77), behind the Nationals (80), and have the league’s highest batting average (.297), a number only the Angels (.301) have bettered in the majors.

The major force behind the Giants upswing on offense has been Hunter Pence, who has hit a home run in four straight games, boosting him to a career high of 25 on the season. Over his past six games, he’s gone 13-for-25 with 19 RBIs.

As good as the Giants have been lately, they face a team tonight that is going through some offensive woes with which they can sympathize. The Mets’ .238 average on the season is 28th worst in baseball, but they’ve taken a step back on the futility meter in September with a .220 average, and have scored only 36 runs while going 5-10 for the month.

We think the best wagering angle tonight might be to side with the UNDER (7) because of the pitching matchup. The Giants’ Yusmeiro Petit is 3-0 with a 2.36 ERA since being recalled from the minors Aug. 23, and the Mets’ Zack Wheeler has been steady himself. Wheeler has allowed two earned runs or less in six of his past seven starts. In his last outing, Wednesday against the red-hot Nationals, he gave up one run over seven innings in a 3-0 Mets loss.

The Mets swept the Giants at AT&T Park in early July, just as the wheels started falling off for the Giants, and have won five straight over the Giants dating back to last season. Despite the Giants’ recent woes to the Mets, we think their current play is worthy of a wager tonight, along with the UNDER.

Tuesday selections:

Giants/Mets UNDER 7 (EV)

Giants (Petit) -112 at Mets

Second-half record: 92-92 (+685)
