MLB Picks: Atlanta Braves vs. Florida Marlins Odds: July 30th 2011

Atlanta Braves vs. Florida Marlins
MLB Pick: Atlanta Braves -142 odds (July 30th 2011)
Visit Touthouse.com for more expert MLB picks from Jimmy Boyd

The Braves defeated the Marlins a fourth-straight time with Friday’s 5-0 win, and I expect them to have Florida’s number again Saturday.
 
The Marlins, who are just 8-23 in their last 31 games following a loss, haven’t been a good bounce back team. Plus, they have fallen well short against the league’s elite. Consider that Florida is only 5-22 in its last 27 games against clubs with a winning record. It is also worth noting that the Fish are 2-7 in scheduled starter Sanchez’s last 9 road starts versus a team with a winning record and 1-5 in his last 6 starts versus Braves.
 
The Braves, who are 15-4 in their last 19 home games, are in good hands with scheduled starter Hudson on the hill. The Braves are 5-0 in his last 5 Saturday starts and 13-6 in his last 19 starts versus the Marlins. We’ll bet the Braves.

Boston Red Sox vs. Kansas City Royals Odds & Pick: July 28th 2011

Boston Red Sox vs. Kansas City Royals
Pick: Boston Red Sox -1.5 -135 odds (July 28th 2011)
Visit Touthouse.com for more expert sports picks from Freddy Wills

Red Sox RL -128 (2.5* FREE PLAY) Beckett has been red hot this year and so have the Red Sox with the bats. Beckett particularly is 3-0 with a 0.90 WHIP and 1.80 ERA over his last 3 starts and he’ll go in the day start on Thursday where the Red Sox are 24-8 this year and Beckett has a 2.14 ERA with 0.81 WHIP in day starts in 2011. Royals on the other hand are 14-19 and although they have hit well their pitching and the wins just have not come and that’s definitely the case with their scheduled starter Luke Hochevar who can show a glimpse of his potential at home but on the road he’s not the same as he has an ERA over 5 on the road this year and has not been any better during day starts. He’s having a rough time this month and has an ERA over 6 in his last 3 starts and over 6 in his career during day starts and in July. Red Sox are the #1 day team in offense sporting a .883 OPS while scoring 6.66 runs per game.
 
More on Beckett as he’s 6-2 lifetime vs. the Royals with a 2.26 ERA and in his 3 home starts he’s got a 1.44 ERA vs. them. Hochevar on the other hand has 4 starts vs. the Red Sox none since 2009 but a 7.94 ERA and 1.85 WHIP does not bode well for him. Red Sox have 74 active at bats vs. him with a .378 average and 1.154 OPS. KC is 20-45 in their last 65 games as an under dog while Boston is 46-18 in their last 64 overall and 39-15 as a favorite over their last 54. Why are we telling you this? Well the Red Sox have won 78% (25 of 32) of their home games by more than 1 run. They have also won 10 of their last 12 vs. the Royals by more than 1 run as well so we think these are great odds for a team that is 23-9 in their last 32 home games vs. KC.

MLB Picks: New York Mets vs. Cincinnati Reds Odds: July 28th 2011

New York Mets vs. Cincinnati Reds
MLB Pick: Cincinnati Reds -140 odds (July 28th 2011)
Visit Touthouse.com for more MLB baseball picks from Bob Wingerter

New York posted an 8-2 victory Wednesday and are looking more like a playoff caliber club than their counterparts and in fact do have the better record. Instead the Mets find themselves victims of being in the National League East where Philadelphia and Atlanta are leaving the rest of the division in their rear view mirrors. The NYM have now three straight and need to keep it going long term to make a run at the playoffs but realistically the team must realize the team is playing for pride and little else. New York has been playing the role of spoiler to perfection the last several days against playoff minded Cincinnati with a solid combination of pitching and hitting which hasn’t always been the case in 2011 and a big part of the reason they are in third place in the East looking up. The Mets send Chris Capuano to the bump for the sweep but he has been on a personal three game slide. Capuano has been on the mediocre side of things in his past two outings allowing eight runs in 13.1 innings.
?
Cincinnati has certainly looked flat in the first three games of a four game set against the Mets to fall four games below .500. Losing is bad enough but the bats and pitching has been less than inspiring but the good news is that the three teams ahead of the Reds in the National League Central aren’t distinguishing themselves as of yet which is keeping the Reds alive by default. It was another poor effort from Bronson Arroyo who allowed four earned runs in six innings and his 5.58 ERA is simply a liability especially the way Cincinnati is struggling at the plate. Their two run, seven hit performance won’t win many games either but there is ample time to fix what is broken and whether that happens is just a wait and see scenario. Right hander Homer Bailey gets the ball Thursday to break the team’s slide and give him his third consecutive victory in the process. Bailey generally wins when he pitches well and loses if he doesn’t and the Reds are desperate to get and stay hot.

Fresno State returns just 10 starters from an 8-5 squad but here’s a team that will benefit from the loss of Boise State the most. During Boise State’s run, the Bulldogs have usually finished second or third in the league. At quarterback, they have to replace Ryan Colburn (2,817, 23, 9) but may have a gem in soph. Derek Carr (6-3, 190), the brother of David, who set several school records. Fortunately, the pressure will not all be on Carr as junior Robbie Rouse (5-7, 185) returns, after rushing for 1,129yds with 8 TDs last season after missing two games. The receiving corps should be strong, despite the loss of Jamel Hamler (54 for 812yds), who left early for the NFL. The next three receivers return (in receptions) after Hamler. The only returner on the O-line is senior LT Bryce Harris (6-6, 295), though the interior has experienced players who have started in the past. The defense returns five starters including senior DT Logan Harrell (6-2, 275), who led the team in sacks with 10.5. He’s the only returning player from the defensive line. The top LB back is junior Travis Brown (6-2, 235), who had 79 tackles and 2 sacks last year. Junior S Phillip Thomas (6-1, 205) was a second-team all-conference player last year, after recording 64 tackles with 3 picks. The non-conf. schedule includes California and Nebraska on the road with North Dakota (FCS), Boise State and Ole Miss at home. They also have to face Hawaii and Nevada on the road. Tough.

The Warriors return just three starters on offense from a 10-4 team. One of those starters is senior QB Bryan Moniz (6-0, 200), who threw for 5,040 yds to lead the nation (39TDs). The O-line has to re-load with four new starters and that will be tough on Moniz. He also loses his top two receivers, though senior Royce Pollard (64 for 901yds is back). Juco transfer Darius Bright (6-3, 230) should put up huge numbers with his size and speed (4.47 40) combination. They also lose top RB Alex Green (1,199yds, 18 TDs), though they have some talented backs behind him. The defense does return some solid players from a unit that led the nation in turnovers forced (38). Thye return top tackler in senior LB Corey Paredes (5-11, 235), who led the team with 151 tackles and four picks. The D-line is pretty sturdy led by senior DT Kanela Tuipulotu (6-2, 300), who had 34 tackles and 2.5 TFLs last season. The non-conf. schedule includes Colorado, BYU, Tulane and UC Davis at home with Washington and UNLV on the road. They also face Fresno State at home and Nevada on the road in conference.

Idaho returns 12 starters but only 4 on offense, from a 6-7 team. Unfortunately, the Vandals lose Nathan Enderle (3,314yds, 22, 16), an outstanding qb who was drafted in the fifth-round by Chicago. Senior Brian Reader (6-3, 224) gets the job after tossing for 568yds with 5 TDs and one pick as Enderle’s backup. The running game will need to pick it up after raking 118th last year in FBS. Enter junior Ryan Bass (5-9, 207), a transfer from Arizona State, who should improve an inept ground attack. The O-line returns both tackles, which is a good thing. At receiver, they lose the top two targets. On defense, the Vandals return most of their key players including senior WLB Robert Siavii (6-1, 217), who led the team in tackles with 91 last year (3.5 scks, 10 TFLs). The strength of the D-line should be the return of senior Michael Cosgrove (6-4, 294), who had 30 tackles and 3.5 sacks last year. However, the Vandals have to improve against the run (188.9ypg). The non-conf. schedule includes Bowling Green and North Dakota at home with Texas A&M, BYU and Virginia on the road.

The Bulldogs have a chance to be a sleeper in the WAC. Sonny Dykes returns for his second season at the helm of a team that went 5-7 last season. Dykes was a former OC at Arizona and assistant under Mike Leach at Texas Tech. He understands the spread attack and should be able to transfer that knowledge to junior Colby Cameron (6-2, 205), who threw for 461 yds last year with just 1 TD and 5 INTs, backing up Ross Jenkins (1,760yds, 12, 6). If Cameron can’t get the job done, they have jc transfer Zach Griffith (6-3, 185) waiting in the wings. At running back, senior Leonnon Creer (6-1, 215) had an outstanding junior season with 1,181yds rushing and 10 TDs (5.6ypc). The second-team All-WAC performer started just six games. At WR, they return the top two targets including senior Taulib Ikharo (5-11, 185), who had 50 catches for 530yds last year. Junior WR Tim Molton (6-2, 180)They return just two starters on the O-line and hope that two juco transfers (they have 12 this year) will be able to fill the holes. On defense, the Bulldogs have their top five tacklers back. Senior WLB Jay Dudley (6-3, 225) led the team in tackles last year with 94. The secondary returns three starters but they need to improve after giving up 290 yds/game (ranking 117th). The non-conf. schedule includes Southern Miss, Ole Miss and Miss. State on the road with Central Arkansas and Houston at home. The conf. schedule features Nevada and Fresno State on the road and Hawaii at home.

The Wolfpack return 12 starters from a 13-1 team, but they had the biggest losses in the WAC on offense. QB Colin Kaepernick (3,022yds, 21, 8, 1,206yds rush) is off to the NFL as is RB Vai Taua (1,610yds, 19TDs). Senior QB Tyler Lantrip (6-4, 220) is the most likely successor to run the Pistol offense for Chris Ault. Junior Mike Ball (5-10, 215) and senior Lampford Mark (6-1, 200) will vie for the starting RB spot. At WR, senior Rishard Matthews (6-2, 215) is the team’s best receiver (56 for 879yds, 5TDs) and also won the MVP in their bowl win over Boston College (20-13). The O-line returns just two starters. On defense, they return seven starters including second-team All-WAC players James-Michael Johnson (6-2, 240) and CB Isaiah Frey (6-0, 190). Johnson had 88 tackles and 2.5 sacks last year, while Frey had 14 pass breakups and 52 tackles. The D-line returns both tackles but loses top DE Dontach Moch (8.5 sacks). The non-conf. schedule includes Oregon, Texas Tech and Boise State on the road (ouch). They also face UNLV and New Mexico at home. In conference, they take on Fresno State and Hawaii at home.

The Aggies need some offensive spark so they hired Doug Martin, a former head coach at Kent State, to take over as off. coordinator. This program has never won more than two league games in six years in the WAC. They’ll need to find a QB between senior Matt Christian (6-3, 211) or soph. Andrew Manley (6-3, 225). They ranked 117th last year in scoring offense and 112th in total offense. so something needs to change. The O-line returns intact and RB Kenny Tuner (5-10, 182) is back after rushing for 461yds with 2 TDs. The top two receivers are gone though senior Taveon Rogers (6-0, 181) returns after making the second-team All-WAC as KR (27.1ypr) and receiver (18 for 278yds). The defense returns their top five tacklers. They do lose top CB Davon House (57tckls, 2INTs) to the NFL. They do return 3 of the top 4 D-linemen. Junior WLB BJ Adolpho (5-11, 207) is back after recording 77 tackles and amassing two sacks. The non-conf. schedule features Ohio U and UTEP at home with Minnesota, New Mexico, Georgia and BYU on the road.
