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

    Thanks for coming back for another year of Line Drive as we work hard to bring you winning baseball picks, the best daily analysis on all the day's games as well as tips on weather, umpires, and other betting trends to help you with your MLB handicapping. Play ball!

    Double-play Picks

    St. Louis Cardinals at New York Mets (-140, 6.5)


    The Mets entered the 2017 season as a World Series contender and well, they fell off the rails in spectacular fashion, becoming one of the most disappointing teams in baseball last year. The Mets also cost bettors more than almost any team in baseball at -30.04 units and ended up winning just 70 games.

    This was due mostly to the fact New York was riddled with injuries last season, especially to its pitching staff. In fact, Noah Syndergaard, Jacob deGrom, Zack Wheeler, Steven Matz and Matt Harvey all spent time on the disabled list. The Mets are hoping 2018 will be different, starting with the God of Thunder himself.

    Thor (Syndergaard) gets the Opening Day start for the Mets after missing the majority of 2017 with a lat injury. But the fireball-hurling right-hander looks healthy and ready to put last season behind him. Syndergaard was his old self this spring, pitching to a 1.35 ERA while racking up 23 punchouts in 20 innings pitched.

    He faces a revamped Cardinals team and while he’s 0-2 against the Red Birds, he has done well in this matchup. In two career starts against St. Louis, Syndergaard has a 2.77 ERA, a 1.23 WHIP, while striking out 14 in 13 innings.

    When Syndergaard is at full strength, he may have the best pure stuff in the bigs and he’ll want to start 2018 off with a Thunderous bang!

    Pick: Mets -140

    Colorado Rockies at Arizona Diamondbacks (-110, 8.5)


    It’s a rematch of last season’s epic National League Wild Card showdown as the Rockies open their season in the desert against the D-backs.

    While it was the Diamondbacks who outlasted the Rockies 11-8 in the NL’s one-game playoff to advance to the NLDS, it looks like the Rockies are the team trying to take the next step. The Rockies lineup remains stacked with the likes of Nolan Arenado, Charlie Blackmon and Carlos Gonzalez and, while the starting staff leaves a little to be desired, they added some high-powered arms to the bullpen, including Wade Davis and Bryan Shaw.

    Arizona was one of the best home teams in baseball last season, but the loss of J.D. Martinez can't be understated - he was an absolute monster last season. The lineup should regress in 2018 and to make matters worse, Zach Greinke and Robbie Ray are staring the season on the DL. That leaves a matchup of Jon Gray against Patrick Corbin, which is basically a wash.

    Look for the Rockies' bats to have the edge here, plus they’ll be seeking a bit of revenge for last season.

    Pick: Rockies -110

    Last season: 161-146-15 (52.4 %)


    Streaking and Slumping Starting Pitchers

    Streaking: Clayton Kershaw (2017: 18-4, 2.31 ERA, $1,235)

    What better way to start our streaking pitcher section than with the best pitcher in baseball. As you can see by the numbers above, Kershaw dominated once again in 2017 and despite the high price attached to every start he makes, it was a good idea to back him as he was the second-most profitable pitcher last year.

    Kershaw and the Dodgers host the San Francisco Giants for their opening weekend series and while the Giants are one of the Dodgers' biggest rivals, Kershaw has dominated this matchup. He's 22-9 with a 1.60 ERA and a 0.83 WHIP, while striking out 307 batters in 297 and 1-3 innings pitched against San Francisco. Los Angeles is a huge -300 favorite in this matchup for a reason.

    Slumping: Chris Archer (2017: 10-12, 4.07 ERA, $-577)

    It was another down year for Archer in 2017 (as Rays prospect Brent Honeywell isn't afraid to tell him). He had more losses then wins and an ERA over 4.00 for the second consecutive season. No Opening Day starter (not including the Tigers' Jordan Zimmermann as their game was postponed) cost bettors more money than Archer did in 2017. His reward: an Opening Day nod in a matchup with the Chris Sale and the Red Sox. Wait, what?

    Boston has owned the Rays right-hander over the course of his career. Archer is just 2-12 with a 5.45 ERA, a 1.69 WHIP in 19 career start against the Red Sox and during this two-year slump he is 1-6 with a 5.87 ERA and a 1.77 WHIP. Woof! The Rays are currently +145 home dogs for this matchup.

    Thursday's Top Trends

    * Astros were 5-0 in Justin Verlander's last five starts vs. AL West opponents last season. HOU -170 at TEX.
    * Blue Jays are 8-1 in J.A. Happ's last nine starts vs. Yankees. TOR +140 vs. NYY.
    * Red Sox are 5-1 in Chirs Sale's last six starts vs. Rays. BOS -155 at TB.
    * Padres are 0-4 in Clayton Richard's last four starts vs. Brewers. SD +102 vs. MIL.

    Weather Watch

    Bad weather always makes its presence felt in early season baseball and 2018 is no different. Two Opening Day games - Washington at Cincinnati and Pittsburgh at Detroit - have already been postponed due to rain. Luckily, several teams will make use of their retractable rooves and/or dome stadiums.

    That said, there are a couple of pitcher's winds to take note of today. At SunTrust Park in Atlanta, where the Braves will host the Phillies, there's a 14-mph wind blowing in from center field in the forecast. The total is currently at eight runs. While in Kansas City, there will be an 11-mph wind, also gusting in from center at Kauffman Stadium for the Royals game against the White Sox. The total for that game is currently 8.5 runs. Make sure to always check out our MLB Weather page before making your baseball bets.

    Friday’s 6-pack

    Opening Day attendance figures:
    — Cubs @ Marlins: 32,151 (mostly Cub fans)
    — Cardinals @ Mets: 44,189, including Phil/Evan Pivnick
    — Twins @ Orioles: 45,469
    — Astros @ Rangers: 47,253
    — Red Sox @ Rays: 31,042
    — Angels @ A’s: 27,764. Hey the A’s are tied for first place. This was their first daytime home opener since 1994.

    Quotes of the Day
    “It was a great feeling getting out there, didn’t really feel like I missed any time with that injury last year. It was great to go out there and feel the energy that the 7 Line brings and the Mets fans bring. Just propels me to do a better job.”
    Noah Syndergaard

    “That had a nice ring to it, Don. I’m not going to lie about it.”
    Trevor Hoffman, after Padres’ TV guy Don Orsillo introduced him on air Thursday, as “Hall of Famer Trevor Hoffman”

    Friday’s quiz
    Who was manager of the Dodgers before Dave Roberts?

    Thursday’s quiz
    Last time the New York Knicks made the playoffs was in 2013.

    Wednesday’s quiz
    Florida (2008) was the last college basketball team to repeat as national champs.

    ****************************

    Friday’s List of 13: Wrapping up Opening Day and other stuff
    13) I used to be a minor league official scorer, long time ago (back when I had hair); if I kept score of games today, I’d code the field 3-9 instead of players, to account for shifting in the field.

    For instance, Houston used four OF’s vs Joey Gallo Thursday; he flied out to 3B Alex Bregman, who was playing in left field. Traditional scoring would say F5, since Bregman plays 3B, but I’d say F7, since Gallo hit the ball to left field.

    I’d supplement my scorebook with written notes on who actually caught the ball, but thats how I’d score a game now. Just think it would be more accurate.

    12) Rays 6, Red Sox 4— Chris Sale allowed no runs, one hit in six IP (92 PT), then the Boston bullpen blew the lead in the 8th inning, allowing four walks, two hits, with Denard Span’s 3-run triple the big hit.

    11) Dodger TV guy Joe Davis said there were 90 mound visits (90!!!) in Game 7 of the World Series last year. the limit this year will be six per team; ummm, thats a little different.

    10) Cubs 8, Marlins 4- Roof was open at Marlins’ Park Thursday; it was open for six home games out of 78 LY and Miami was 0-6 in those games. Marlins are not a MLB-quality team right now- they’re going to lose a lot of games.

    For the record, Ian Happ was the first batter this season and he hit a home run.

    9) If you care about such things, Josh Donaldson led MLB last year, 15 1st-inning homers. Giancarlo Stanton was next, with 14. Stanton hit one in the first inning in Toronto Thursday, and then he hit another one in the 9th inning.

    8) Astros 4, Rangers 1— When Joey Gallo batted with bases empty, Houston played four guys in OF with no fielders on left side of the infield. Actually, Altuve was in the OF too, in short RF, so they had five guys in the outfield.

    7) McDonald’s All-American Darius Bazley decommitted from Syracuse, becoming the first top high school prospect to choose turning pro in the G League, where he’ll make $26,000, instead of spending a few months in college. Maybe he’ll get a small shoe contract.

    Bazley is a 6-9 kid from the Cincinnati area; he’ll sign a pro contract when he turns 18 in June. Big gamble on his part— if he were to get hurt, then what? If he gets hurt in college, he’s still in college and has the school’s resources at his disposal. He won’t be property of an NBA team next year, just the G-League team. He’ll be eligible for the 2019 NBA Draft.

    6) White Sox 11, Royals 4— Matt Davidson hit three homers for Chicago; maybe I should’ve picked him up in my fantasy league, back when he was available. Whoops.

    5) RIP Rusty Staub 73, who played 23 years in the big leagues, breaking in with the Houston Colt .45’s in 1963. Le Grand Orange, as he was known in Montreal, made six All-Star teams and had a career OB% of .362 with 292 career homers. He owned a popular restaurant in Manhattan for years after he retired from playing.

    Think about how times have changed; in 1963, there was a baseball team named after a gun and an NBA team called the Baltimore Bullets.

    4) Braves 8, Phillies 5— Phils led this game 5-2 in 8th, but Atlanta rallied, and Nick Markakis hit a walk-off homer to send Braves fans home happy.

    Atlanta catcher Tyler Flowers is the first player this season to leave a game with an injury— he suffered an oblique injury in the second inning.

    3) Orioles 3, Twins 2 (11)— Not 100% sure, but Zach Duke may very well be the first pitcher ever to strike out four batters in an inning on Opening Day- he struck out four Orioles in the 7th inning.

    Adam Jones hit a walk-off homer in the 11th inning to send everyone home happy, after Orioles blew a 2-0 lead in the ninth inning.

    2) Brewers 2, Padres 1 (12)— Bill Schroeder is a former big league catcher who is a really good analyst; Padres had two on, one out in the 7th inning Thursday with Milwaukee leading 1-0, and Schroeder says more than once (three times??) that reliever Josh Hader can get Austin Hedges out with a slider, almost like he is trying to use telepathy to get him to throw it.

    Eventually, Hader throws the slider and strikes Hedges out.

    1— Louisville QB Lamar Jackson threw 59 passes, took snaps under center in front of reps from all 32 NFL teams Thursday, but he wouldn’t run a 40-yard dash, because everyone knows he is fast enough to play QB and he ain’t interested in being a wide receiver. Good for him.

    LEADING OFF: Scherzer starts for Nats, Stanton swings away
    March 30, 2018

    A look at what's happening all around the majors today:

    TRY AGAIN

    Max Scherzer begins his bid for a third straight NL Cy Young Award when he starts for Washington at Great American Ball Park. Opening day in Cincinnati was pushed back a day because of rain - the forecast calls for a dry afternoon with temperatures around 50 at game time. Homer Bailey is set to start for the Reds. The game will mark the major league managerial debut of Nationals skipper Dave Martinez.

    POWER SHOW

    Yankees fans are rooting for Giancarlo Stanton to provide an encore after his power-packed debut for New York. Stanton, who led the majors with 59 homers last year and was the NL MVP, hit two home runs and doubled in the opener at Toronto. Blue Jays righty Aaron Sanchez draws the assignment of trying to shut down Stanton, Aaron Judge and the Yanks. He posted an AL-best 3.00 ERA in 2016, but made just eight starts last season because of persistent blister issues.

    GOING IN GAME TWO

    After making three straight opening day starts for the Astros, Dallas Keuchel was bumped from the opener by Justin Verlander this year. Instead, the bearded left-hander will start Game 2 for Houston against the Rangers. Keuchel told reporters ''he wasn't happy by any means'' when manager A.J. Hinch announced Verlander as his No. 1 starter, though he also conceded ''the guy deserves it.'' Verlander threw six shutout innings in a 4-1 win Thursday. Keuchel draws Texas right-hander Doug Fister, who signed a $4 million, one-year free agent deal in November.

    IS PRICE RIGHT?

    David Price makes his season debut against the Rays a day after Boston's bullpen blew a 4-0 lead in a 6-4 loss. The Red Sox left-hander endured a frustrating 2017 season, with injuries limiting him to 74 2/3 innings. Price looked sharp this spring, posting a 2.25 ERA with 13 strikeouts in 12 innings. He'll oppose hard-throwing lefty Blake Snell.

    JOEY'S TIME

    The Padres surprisingly announced hotshot prospect Joey Lucchesi would start in place of injured Dinelson Lamet, even though the left-hander has only pitched 60 1/3 innings at Double-A. The 24-year-old was a second-round pick in 2016 and went 11-7 with a 2.20 ERA between Class A and Double-A last season. Perhaps more importantly, he had a 1.54 ERA in four spring starts, making him a candidate for his debut when Lamet strained his right elbow Sunday.
