    Armadillo: Saturday's six-pack

    — Minnesota Twins are 45-41; last year, on August 7, they were 45-66.

    — Contending Twins signed free agent pitcher Bartolo Colon, who shunned the Mets.

    — Phillies have lost 22 games by one run this season; they could be good soon.

    — Milwaukee 9, New York 4— Jesus Aguilar had seven RBI for the Brewers.

    — Clippers beat the Lakers in OT in the Las Vegas Summer League; Lonzo Ball was 2-15 in his first professional game.

    — Terry Francona underwent a cardiac ablation Thursday, will not manage the All-Star Game. The procedure corrects an irregular heartbeat by burning a targeted piece of heart tissue.

    MLB betting at the break: Best and worst wagers so far this season

    The All-Star break is nearly upon us and that means it’s time to take stock of the good, the bad and the ugly MLB bettors have witnessed during the season’s first half.

    Let’s review the best and worst bets of the first three months of the 2017 season.

    Best runline team

    Houston Astros: 51-35

    The runline, for novice baseball bettors, is just like a puckline in hockey. It’s a way to bet baseball games with a spread rather than a moneyline. The runline is always + or -1.5 runs.

    It should come as no surprise that the best team in baseball is also the best runline bet. The Astros own the best road record in the majors, which plays a big part in their 51-35 runline record. The few games the ‘Stros are not favored normally happen away from Minute Maid Park.

    It helps too when Houston’s starters at the backend of the rotation are winning at a handsome clip.

    Worst runline team

    Chicago Cubs: 32-53

    A .500 record in baseball isn’t anything to get too worried or too excited about. It’s a lot like favored rice crackers in the snack tree. It’s fine.

    The problem with the Cubbies is that they’re coming off a coming off a 103-win season. A .500 record for this team would be like Ryan Gosling dating a 7. OK, she’s not ugly but you’re Ryan effing Gosling! What the hell are you doing with a 7?

    Oddsmakers favor the team frequently because of the high expectations and the talent on the roster. The Cubs are still among the top favorites to win the World Series at 10/1 despite their mediocre first half.

    Best Over team

    New York Mets: 48-25-10

    The Tampa Rays have cashed more Over tickets (51) but the high number of pushes keeps the Mets as the most profitable Over bet.

    New York’s whole identity from 2016 has flip-flopped a year later. Last season the Mets allowed the third fewest runs and only four teams touched home plate less often than the Mets.

    This season, the Mets own the third worst team ERA at 4.92 and their offense is middle of the pack. Oddsmakers have adjusted but if you were betting the Over with the Mets in the first two months of the season, you were winning at a 73.8 percent rate.

    Best Under team

    Cleveland Indians: 30-49-5

    You’d think the Indians would be a good Over team in 2017 with the addition of professional ball-blaster Edwin Encarnacion and a healthy Michael Brantley in the lineup.

    The club’s offense is on par with last year’s run produced per game, but that’s just not good enough to stay in elite company with 2017’s jacked home run rate.

    Last season, the average MLB team scored 4.5 runs per game. This year, that number has climbed to 4.7.

    Best money team

    Houston Astros: $1960

    Moneyline, as we all know, helps us measure how profitable a given team is based on $100 wagers on each of the club’s games. So, if you bet $100 on the ‘Stros in each of their games you be up $1960 or 19.6 units.

    Same reasoning here for the Astros as there was for their runline record. They own the best record in the majors, they win games with their fourth and fifth starters and they’re winning 76 percent of their road games.

    Worst money team

    San Francisco Giants: -$2179

    It doesn’t help playing in a division with three teams playing .570 or better. It also doesn’t help when you’re most effective starting pitcher is Johnny Cueto.

    The Giants blog McCovey Chronicles asked an excellent question: Who would be the Giants All-Star selection this year if Buster Posey wasn’t on the team?
    Search me. This team stinks.

    Best money starting pitcher

    Clayton Kershaw: $1160

    Just a reminder: Clayton Kershaw is really fricken’ good. The Dodgers are 16-2 in games he’s taken the hill including that gem on Tuesday when threw seven shutout innings with 11 strikeouts against the Arizona Diamondbacks.

    If Kershaw is too expensive for your taste, consider Jason Vargas. He might be the pitching story of the first half of the season for bettors.

    The journeyman hurler is putting together his finest season in his 14th year in the bigs. The Kansas City Royals are 13-4 in his 17 starts and up 10.8 units.

    Worst money starting pitcher

    Jerad Eickhoff: -$1053

    It could have been any Philadelphia Phillies starter, really. Eickhoff just has the… honor(?) of being the Phils ace of the rotation. He’s come back down to earth after a breakout year in 2016. He carries a 4.93 ERA and the Phillies are just 2-12 in his 14 starts this season.

    MLB Daily Line Drive: Saturday's picks, betting odds and analysis

    Double-Play Picks

    Oakland A’s at Seattle Mariners (-150, 9.5)


    "I think you’ve got the wrong guy."

    That’s A’s call-up starter Chris Smith after hearing he would get the start for the big club in Seattle Saturday. Doesn’t instill a great deal of confidence, does it?

    Smith, who is a self-proclaimed 36-year-old stay-at-home dad, has been with the Triple-A Nashville affiliate and will be the oldest starting pitcher in franchise history when he toes the rubber tonight. The right hander pitched just under 25 innings of relief for the A’s in 2016 (2.92 ERA, 29 Ks) and should he get chased early into this start, he’d hand the ball over to Oakland’s awful bullpen, which ranks dead last the American League with a collective 5.08 ERA.

    The Mariners lineup will be licking its chops at the plate. Seattle scored seven runs in Friday’s victory over the Athletics and is hitting .265 BA and averaging more than five runs per game inside Safeco Field – the third-best home field offense in the AL.

    Seattle marches youngster Andrew Moore to the mound Saturday, who at 23 years old is just 10 years older than the combined age of Smith’s three daughters (talk about two different worlds). Moore has been solid in his first two starts of the season, allowing six earned runs through 15 total innings pitched.

    There is just one warning light blinking with the righty: Moore leans on that four-seam fastball and isn’t looking to paint the corners or force hitters to chase his breaking stuff. He has yet to walk a batter but has already allowed three home runs in his limited efforts, which means he’s putting it over the plate.

    Oakland doesn’t do much right on offense, but it can swing a big stick and ranks eighth in the majors in home runs (123). The A’s had scored 21 totals runs in the three games before Thursday’s loss, totaling seven dingers in that span. Anything Moore throws over the plate has a chance to leave the ballpark in a hurry against this lineup.

    Pick: Over 9.5

    New York Mets at St. Louis Cardinals (-133, 9.5)


    The New York Mets and St. Louis Cardinals will tangle in a late afternoon game at Busch Stadium, with the home team looking to even up the series at one game a piece.

    Veteran right-hander Adam Wainwright will get the ball for the Cardinals. He has struggled this season as it appears father time has caught up the 35-year-old his 5.48 ERA is almost a full run higher than last year, which was the highest of his career. The good news for Cardinals backers is that he can still get the job done at home 6-1 on the season.

    The Metropolitans will run Zack Wheeler out to the hill today and that normally means a lot of runs. The Over has cashed in 10 of his 12 starts this season. Narrow the sample size to his last three starts and Wheeler's ERA is 18.41, three overs and if you look simply at Wheeler on the road the over has hit in four of five starts.

    It isn’t that Wheeler doesn’t have potential but a rash of injuries over the last two years have crippled his development and the 6th pick in the 2009 draft is struggling to catch up.

    In the last five meetings between the Mets and Cardinals, the two teams have hit the over in all five averaging a combined 11.2 runs per game.

    Pick: Over 9.5

    Yesterday's Picks: 1-0-1

    Season To Date: 85-73-8



    Streaking and Slumping Starting Pitchers:

    Streaking:
    Aaron Nola, Philadelphia Phillies (6-5, 3.73 ERA, $95)

    There isn’t a lot to be excited about for Phillies fans in 2017. They were never going to be good and no one is surprised to see them with the worst record in baseball a few days before the All-Star break.

    One bright spot so far has been 24-year old Aaron Nola, who has shown not only that he belongs in the big leagues but can be an ace. Over his last three starts, he is 3-0 with a 1.27 ERA, .94 WHIP, and has gone at least seven innings in each of those starts.

    Nola and the Phillies are -147 home chalk against the Padres this afternoon.

    Slumping:
    Wade Miley, Baltimore Orioles (3-7, 5.20, $-137)

    When in doubt for a slumping pitcher look no further than the Baltimore Orioles.

    It might not be fair to say Wade Miley is in a slump at this point he is what he is, but his last six starts have been god awful. An ERA of 11.69, 2.55 WHIP, and he hasn’t made it past the sixth inning in any of these appearances.

    Miley is on the mound today as the Orioles are +124 underdogs today in Minnesota.

    Saturday's Top Trends:

    Braves are 1-8 in Julio Teheran’s last 9 starts vs. Nationals. +193 @ Washington

    Red Sox are 0-7 in Rick Porcello’s last 7 starts vs. American League East. -107 @ Tampa Bay

    White Sox are 2-11 in their last 13 road games vs. a team with a winning record. +123 @ Colorado

    Under is 12-1 in Cubs last 13 vs. a team with a losing record. Pirates/Cubs Total: 8

    Weather To Keep An Eye On:

    The forecast is calling for a dry day across Major League Baseball today and no games should be delayed or postponed.

    There are a few games that will feature decent hitter’s winds. The Yankees will entertain the Brewers with a 14 mile per hour wind blowing out to straight center field and a betting total of 9.5, the Phillies will host the Padres at Citizens Bank Park with a 13 mile per hour wind blowing out to right field and a total of 8, and the Giants will welcome the Marlins with a 15-17 mile per hour wind blowing out to left field and an Over/Under set at 8.5.

    Ump Of The Day:

    Paul Nauert gets the pads today at Rogers Centre where the Blue Jays are hosting the Houston Astros. Nauert has been one of baseball’s top homer umpires this season with the home team winning 11 of his 14 appearances (78.6 percent) behind the plate and when the home team is favoured by between -140 and -101 they are 5-0.

    This is of course great news for Marcus Stroman and the Blue Jays. The Jays are currently -115 chalk against the best offense in baseball.
