Top Pitching Match-up Tuesday: Los Angeles Dodgers vs. …

kershaw

The St. Louis Cardinals (67-61) host the Los Angeles Dodgers (58-69) in Game 2 of a 3-game set tonight at Busch Stadium in St. Louis, Missouri. While the Dodgers likely won’t have a chance of making the playoffs this year, sitting 10.5 games out of 1st place in the NL West and without a quality batting order, they’ll look to further trouble the Cardinals this evening as St. Louis finds itself 9 games out of 1st in the NL Central with the Milwaukee Brewers continuing to pull away.

Trying to pull the St. Louis Cardinals out of a recent funk of 5 losses in 7 outings will be Kyle Lohse (10-7, 3.33 ERA), who looks to building on a solid outing last week consisting of 7 innings with only 2 runs allowed in a 7-2 win at Pittsburgh. He’s 3-0 with a 2.53 ERA in his last 4 starts and pitched well against the Dodgers in his only start against them (7 1/3 innings, 2 runs allowed, 6 strike outs).
Lohse may benefit from Los Angeles’ Clayton Kershaw (15-5, 2.60 ERA) facing one of the only lineups he’s struggled against this season.

Kershaw’s last outing against the Cards resulted in 5 runs allowed over 4 2/3 innings of work in a 9-2 Dodger loss. However, you may consider chalking that up to a fluke performance, as otherwise Kershaw has been one of the only bright spots for the Dodgers this season and has gone 3-1 with a 2.01 record in August, and 7-1 with a 1.33 ERA in his last 8 outings.

Betting Lines for Los Angeles at St. Louis, featured on Bodog Sportsbook (Bodog.eu):

Los Angeles seeks its first back-to- back wins at St. Louis since 2003, while both teams desperately try to climb out of their current tough spells (St. Louis losing 5 of their last 7, LA losing 5 of their last 8). Though St. Louis has more than enough firepower in its lineup with Matt Holliday, Lance Berkman and Albert Pujols providing the boost, Kershaw proves difficult for any lineup, especially one mired in a slump.
Los Angeles is the favorite on odds of -115 due to Kershaw’s presence, while Kyle Lohse and St. Louis are +105 underdogs at home. St. Louis gets 1.5 runs at -155, while Los Angeles gives up 1.5 runs at +135. Judging by last nights’ 2-1 finish, with two even more talented pitchers on the mound tonight we may see a continuation of low scoring, hence the low over/under at 7 runs (under -120, over EVEN money).

Our Pick to Win:

Whenever we’ve bet against Kershaw this season, things seem to not fare well (considering he’s won 15 of his 20 decisions this year, that would make some sense to a normal person). I’m not making the same mistake again, and will look for Kershaw to get redemption from his tough loss against St. Louis earlier in the season.

Players to Watch, Los Angeles:

James Loney, 1B – Loney is hitting .356 in August with 2 homers and 6 RBIs. He comes off a 3-for-4 outing last night and a 4-for-4 outing the day before at Colorado, so look for this guy to be a producer tonight as well.

Matt Kemp, CF – He’s hitting .329 in August with 2 home runs and 10 RBIs, and along with Loney provides the main spark (what there is of one) to Los Angeles’ offense. Though he’s struggled a bit against Lohse (2-for-12 lifetime), he’s hitting very well on the road this season at a .328 clip and is a red-hot .476 (10-for-21) this year against St. Louis.

Players to Watch, St. Louis:

Lance Berkman, RF – The 35 year-old Berkman is having a renaissance year, hitting .290 with 29 home runs and 78 RBIs for the Cards. He’s hitting .316 in August, and is hitting .357 against the Dodgers this year.

Albert Pujols, 1B – Is there a discussion about St. Louis that doesn’t include this guy? I think not, and it’s because he’s continuing his usual tear down the home stretch of the season, hitting .317 in August with 7 homers and 12 RBIs. Though his .289 batting average is down off his career marks (.328) due to a rough start to the season and injury, his 31 homers and 77 RBIs are very impressive considering he’s missed 20 games this year. For this match-up, note that Pujols has gone 7-for-15, for a .467 average.

Major League Baseball Takes Center Stage for Top Sports …

With another Monday in the books and with it another addition of preseason Monday Night Football, we return to the typical summer week packed with Major League Baseball action on Tuesday, with hopes to bring a tie-breaker for the start of this new week after suffering a couple minor setbacks on Monday’s online sportsbook bets. There is a nice increase in the baseball offerings available on Tuesday, as another make-up game double-header helps to give sports betting fans 16 games to choose from at the top online sportsbooks, and there’s no better place to execute those wagers than at one of the top sports betting sites reviewed here, at the Bodog Sportsbook found at Bodog.eu. Bodog.eu remains as one of the flagship sportsbooks on our site, and personally we’ve have had nothing but great service, great online sports betting opportunities, and quick and easy methods for deposits and payouts since beginning a relationship with this company. That being said, for Tuesday I’m going back to their site in order to check out the best baseball bets on the day, as the season comes down to the final stretch of games, and the Wild Card and Pennant races are now fully in the minds of any team sitting with a shot at the post season.

Starting off the available wagers at the top sportsbook at Bodog Sportsbook, the featured game of the evening once again has to be the Texas Rangers hosting the Boston Red Sox, as Colby Lewis faces Jon Lackey in what should be another favorable game for Texas pitching. Though I put my bets down last night on the wrong side of the aisle in this match-up, I will try to not make the same mistake here, opting to wager on the Rangers to cover the points spread at -1.5 runs at +120 odds. Next up for betting on sports, find the double header between the Cleveland Indians and Seattle Mariners to be worth a look over, especially with Cleveland set up to rebound from last night’s 3-2 loss with Justin Masterson on the mound facing Blake Bevan. Masterson and the Tribe are huge -245 favorites to win, so another worthwhile wager to catch here would feature the under bet on total runs at 7 1/2, as both offenses in this series continue to play small ball, and two good pitchers should help to keep the scoring down today. Further AL options for top sportsbook betting include the Detroit Tigers at Tampa Bay Rays (Brad Penny vs. David Price favors the Rays at home), the Chicago White Sox at Los Angeles Angels (great pitching match-up with Mark Buehrle vs. Ervin Santana), and the New York Yankees at home against the Oakland A’s.

Check out further options in the National League today, as the San Francisco Giants host a series with the San Diego Padres (Game 1 features Matt Cain vs. Mat Latos), the Arizona Diamondbacks looking to get out of a recent slump at Washington with ace Ian Kennedy on the hill, and a solid pitching match-up in St. Louis as Clayton Kershaw of the Los Angeles Dodgers battles Kyle Lohse of the Cardinals. There are quite a few good games in store for online sportsbook betting on Major League Baseball tonight, so take a look at some underdogs this evening to potentially cash in on some unlikely wagers. Being a real fan of the game’s intricacies, I really don’t care who’s playing, as long as there is good hitting, good pitching, or both on a given night. I hope that you’ve been able to get to one of our featured online sportsbooks and place a wager or two this evening, as Major League Baseball always makes for exciting and interesting online sports betting action. We’ll catch up with you again tomorrow, and as always, thanks for stopping by our website for sports betting news and reviews of the top sportsbooks on the web.

Monday Night Football in any form is a great opportunity for any sports betting enthusiast, and the night’s match-up between the Chicago Bears and the New York Giants should be a good one, with a number of things to look at in this match-up ahead of the regular season. First off is the Bears’ offensive line, which gave up a frightening 56 sacks to opposing defenses last season, including 10 sacks alone to the New York Giants (also yielding a concussion for QB Jay Cutler). Luckily for the Bears tonight, they won’t have to face defensive end Osi Umenyiora, who sits with a knee injury requiring surgery (he recorded 3 of the 10 Giants’ sacks last meeting). This game does figure to be a highly defensive match-up tonight however, but we’ll be watching for both Jay Cutler and Eli Manning to get plenty more playing time tonight on the Monday Night Football stage. Take note that the Bears have a 15-6 record against the Giants all-time in the preseason, including the last three in a row.

Of quick note in Major League Baseball for Monday, there are 10 great opportunities to make good money betting on sports with series shifting for the new week. Check out the highlighted games of the day between the Boston Red Sox and the Texas Rangers, as well as the Tampa Bay Rays hosting the AL Central-leading Detroit Tigers and staff ace Justin Verlander. Over in the National League, check out the double-header between the Milwaukee Brewers and the Pittsburgh Pirates, the league-leading Philadelphia Phillies hosting the New York Mets, and Atlanta Braves looking to keep a firm grip on their NL Wild Card spot with a victory at the Chicago Cubs. It’s exciting times for online sportsbook betting at the featured sportsbooks reviewed here at CasinoReview.org and it’s more than worth your while to head to one of our best online sportsbooks and get in on the action today!
