Tempers flared up ahead of ESPN Baseball on Sunday Night with the Dodgers visiting the Mets. chase Utley returns to the Big Apple where his playoff slide snapped the leg of Ruben Tejada. Everyone has been waiting to see what would happen and yesterday it did. Syndergaard head hunted him with a heater near 100 mph and got tossed. Will cooler heads prevail? How are the Dodgers an over -200 road ML favorite this evening? All of this for you right now here at HRWager!
ESPN Baseball : Price is on Pitching
While season stats are good for some analysis, the last three games gives you even more in terms of the key momentum factor. For tonight’s 8PM start, the price is all pitching based. Kershaw is humming right along. His last three starts has seen 26 IP with 31 K’s and a 0.42 WHIP. Only concern is pitch count and innings amassed on that arm. He is a proven performer but he is approaching a short term wall real fast. Speaking of that, Colon has petered out it seems. 1-2 in last three with only 9’s to 7 strikeouts. WHIP of 1.44 gives birth to his almost five run era in this stretch.
Six and Six and a half have been bouncing around the totals market here at the HRW. Kershaw and the Mets can take it easy on his innings here as the Mets have a lot of injuries at the moment. Dud, Flores, and maybe even Wright will be out in this one. The numbers of certain Dodgers against Bartolo will make you blink. Adrian Gonzalez is 12-27 and has two homeruns. Utley is 10 for 20 against the veteran pitcher. All of this leads to the HRWager Free Picks of the Day.
Even the runline is near -115 on the road team. Total is the vulnerability in this one. Over 6 is what you should aim for. Colon could get crushed for this number just by himself. Look for Kershaw to do well but actually only be used for six to seven innings. No need to push the envelope here on the road. Regular season wins for the Dodgers are only needed to get them the division. HRWager’s Free Pick for Sunday Night Baseball is the over 6 runs. Good fortune and we will see you later today here at the HRW.
