Latest MLB News

Milwaukee Brewers acquire Zack Greinke from Kansas City Royals
2021-12-28

The Milwaukee Brewers proved that they are dead serious in forming a more formidable team next season when they acquired Zack Greinke from the Kansas City Royals.


The Brewers also acquired shortstop Yuniesky Betancourt plus cash considerations, while sending Alcides Escobar, Lorenzo Cain, Jake Odorizzi, and Jeremy Jeffress to the Royals.


Brewers’ general manager Doug Melvin expressed his excitement for successfully acquiring Greinke, despite giving up a lot of talents like prospects Odorizzi and Jeffress. Melvin said that the arrival of Greinke, whom he tagged as one of the top young pitchers today, will give them a big boost next season.


“Zack Greinke is one of the top young pitchers in the game today,” Melvin said in the team’s official statement. “We are very excited to add him to our new rotation. Zack brings great physical skills and athleticism to the team and is an outstanding competitor. This trade is a credit to our scouting and player development staff as their hard work and judgment provided us the talented prospects that Kansas City will be receiving.”


Milwaukee outfielder Corey Hart also expressed his excitement after hearing the news and he declared that the Brewers would be a tough nut to crack next season, especially after acquiring Shaun Marcum earlier this offseason.


“We were getting better with Marcum, now Greinke,” Hart said. “Brewers are for real!”


Royals general manager Dayton Moore, on the other hand, said that Greinke, who was 10-14 with a 4.17 ERA last season, would be a big loss, but the young players they acquired from Milwaukee would fit in their system and their rotation that also features up-and-coming players.


“We expect to be competitive next year,” Moore said. “We're still working to improve our baseball team.”


Moore also revealed that Greinke, who was 60-67 with a 3.82 ERA in his more than six seasons with the Royals, was very cooperative during the trade talks and the veteran pitcher even agreed to waive the no-trade clause in his contract that he signed on January 2009.


“He was very much open to it at the end of the day,” Moore said. “A big part of my heart will always pull for Zack. What he overcame, the success he had here, to the point it's not easy to make these types of deals. You would prefer to have him here and sign him long-term but it just wasn't something we could do.”


Moore reiterated that the decision to deal Greinke was a difficult decision, but they have to make the move in their bid to rebuild for their future. Moore is expecting Greinke to shine in the National League next season.


“This guy's one of the best fielding pitchers in the game,” Moore said. “You can't bunt on him. He holds runners. He's a studier. I think he's going to do terrific.”


With the deal, the Royals prove that they are dead serious in their rebuilding process and adding Odorizzi, who was one of the top minor league pitching prospects, will give them a boost next season, as well as Escobar and Jeffress, who both had decent performances last season. The Brewers are +2000 to win the National League pennant in 2011 according to the Baseball Odds at the home of MLB betting.





World Series Game 5 Betting Preview
2021-11-01

World Series Game 5 Football Live Betting Odds nfl football betting Online Sportsbook football betting odds NFL Lines Betting Lines: Texas -174, San Francisco +164 Total: 6.5

Once again, Texas calls on Cliff Lee (12-9, 3.18 ERA) to come up big as the Rangers try to rally from a 3-1 deficit and send the series back to San Francisco. Tim Lincecum (16-10, 3.43 ERA) goes for the Giants in a rematch of Game 1’s wild 11-7 San Francisco victory. The World Series betting crowd is expecting a Game 6 as 88 percent of the cash is on the Rangers.

Game 1 was certainly a start to forget for Lee, who allowed seven runs (six earned) on eight hits over 4.2 innings. It was only the second time in 2010 that Lee failed to make it out of the fifth inning. With the loss, Lee’s postseason ERA worsened to 2.51. The start was an anomaly on multiple levels as Lee came into the game with a 7-0 lifetime postseason record and was 3-0 with a 1.13 ERA in his career against San Francisco. Monday will be his first start at home this postseason. Lee went 3-2 with a 2.92 ERA at Rangers Ballpark this year.

The series opener was also the worst start of the playoffs for Lincecum, who gave up four runs on eight hits in 5.2 innings of work. The right-hander is now 3-1 with a 2.79 ERA this postseason. San Francisco has won five on his past six starts and eight of his past 10. Lincecum will make his third road start this postseason on Monday and that may be a good thing for San Francisco as he was better on the road during the regular season, posting a 7-3 record and a 3.17 ERA, as opposed to 9-7 and a 3.69 ERA at AT&T Field.

These baseball betting trends uncovered points towards a Giants’ win tonight:

SAN FRANCISCO is 42-20 (+22.0 Units) against the money line after batting .250 or worse over a 20 game span this season. The average score was SAN FRANCISCO 4.6, OPPONENT 2.8 - (Rating = 3*).

SAN FRANCISCO is 45-20 (+26.3 Units) against the money line with an on base percentage of .310 or worse over their last 20 games this season. The average score was SAN FRANCISCO 4.5, OPPONENT 2.7 - (Rating = 3*).

Houston Texans vs. Indianapolis Colts Betting Odds and Preview

Monday Night Football Betting Odds: Indianapolis -5.5, Total: 51.5

The Texans travel to Indianapolis in search of their first-ever series sweep of the Colts. Both teams are banged up, but the Colts are in much worse shape with TE Dallas Clark on injured reserve (wrist), WR Austin Collie out (hand) and RB Joseph Addai doubtful (shoulder) for Monday night. A few other key offensive players are hurt as well, including WRs Reggie Wayne and Pierre Garcon and RB Donald Brown who all have hamstring woes, but will all suit up Monday.

Despite all of the Colts’ injuries, bettors are confident that they will cover the point spread as 62 percent of the cash is on Indy.

The Texans also have some injuries to key players such as WR Andre Johnson (ankle) and TE Owen Daniels (knee), but both are expected to play close to 100 percent Monday night.

This game promises to be a shootout with two of the top four offenses in the league. Entering this week, Indianapolis ranked second to the Chargers with 409 YPG and the Texans placed fourth with 380 YPG. On the defensive side of the ball, Houston places dead last in the league in yardage (411 YPG) while Indy sat 21st with 344 YPG allowed. No wonder 68 percent of the football betting crowd is pounding the ‘over’.

Both quarterbacks have a long history of playing each other. Peyton Manning’s numbers against Houston are simply jaw-dropping. In 17 career meetings, Manning has thrown for 4,854 yards (286 YPG), 40 touchdowns and just eight interceptions. Texans QB Matt Schaub has not been successful facing the Colts with just five touchdowns and seven interceptions in four career meetings.

The Colts are 15-2 SU in 17 all-time meetings in the series, including a perfect 8-0 home record. But these NFL betting trends lean towards a Houston covering the point spread tonight.

Play On - Road teams (HOUSTON) - with a horrible scoring defense - allowing 27 or more points/game, after allowing 25 points or more in 2 straight games. (34-9 over the last 5 seasons.) (79.1%, +24.1 units. Rating = 3*).

Play On - Road teams (HOUSTON) - slow starting team - outscored by 5+ PPG in the first half, after scoring 7 points or less in the first half in 2 straight games. (63-25 over the last 10 seasons.) (71.6%, +35.5 units. Rating = 3*).

For the rest of tonight’s Houston Texans vs. Indianapolis Colts betting odds, head over to now.


2010 World Series is here!!!
2021-10-28

The 2010 World Series has finally arrived! Yes, baseball fans, no matter which your favorite team is, this is a series that is always worth watching, because the 2 best teams during the whole season will do whatever it takes to win the yearned trophy and celebrate in a large parade across their city. This year we have a newcomer, Texas Rangers, and a team that has came close to winning the title 3 times: San Francisco Giants. Both teams come from giving 2 major upsets in their corresponding Championship series. The Rangers destroyed the reigning champions New York Yankees, beating them twice at their very own Yankee Stadium, with an impressive offensive display. On the other hand, the Giants made use of their precise pitching to beat the Philadelphia Phillies also playing away from home.
Talking about game 1 in this series, the Giants will have the home advantage, having had a better season result than their rivals. Therefore, the first game will take place at the AT&T Park in San Francisco. Still, the odds are quite in favor of the Rangers, mainly because of the impressive balance between powerful batting (they scored 18 runs in the Yankee stadium in their 2 victories there in the American League Championship Series), and the zen-like concentration of pitcher Cliff Lee. These odds are -127 for Texas and +117 for San Francisco. They might be right in a way, but let’s not forget that the Giants have an awesome pitcher in Tim Lincecum, 2 times Cy Young Award winner. They seem to be pretty even in the pitching department.
What could make the difference is the offense, and here naturally Texas could come out as favorite, given their monumental attacking work against none other than the Yankees. However, it seems to me that this series will be decided in 7 games, since both teams defend their home park very well. As to who will win, that is a very hard nut to crack… Both teams are equally motivated, they have very versatile players in all the departments, and the team cohesion is clear in both sides. I would say San Francisco has a slight advantage when it comes to their manager. Both Bruce Bochy (Giants) and Ron Washington (Rangers) have almost the same time as managers, but Bochy received the NL Manager of the Year award with the San Diego Padres. He also led this low-budget team to the National League pennant in 1998, losing to the Yankees in the World Series. So, Bochy already has World Series experience, Washington doesn’t. Will he be able to handle the pressure?
If I were to give a winner, I would say San Francisco will be 2010 World Champions. But that is not up to me to decide, is it?
