Sports Marketplace – MLB Edition

Marketwatch crept back toward the black last Tuesday as the Rockies stole one in the tenth inning at San Francisco.  Both Jason Hammel and Barry Zito pitched gems, giving up one run each and striking out 13 total batters over a combined 13.2 innings.  Colorado broke through in the top of the 11th, as a Clint Barmes base knock to shallow left scored the game winner.  The 2-1 victory moved the Rockies one game ahead of the Giants in the NL West and gave us a big hit.

Sports MarketWatch – MLB Games to Watch

Cincinnati Reds +114 over San Francisco Giants

In tonight’s matchup, the Giants send Matt Cain (4-4, 2.36 ERA) to the mound as they take on the Reds and the National League’s most prolific offense. Cain, who ranks third in the NL in opposing batting average (.192), pitched very well in his last outing, surrendering only one run in eight innings against the Rockies. The Reds counter with rookie Sam LeCure, who is 1-1 with a 3.92 ERA in two career major league starts.

San Francisco opened as a -140 favorite at CRIS and is a slight public favorite, currently garnering 55% of moneyline bets. Even though public bets are favoring the Giants, the line has shrunk to -130 at CRIS, indicating big bets are backing the home underdog. Sports Insights’ Betting Systems also like the Reds, triggering a Steam Move on Cincinnati at Olympic (+8.9 units). Marketwatch likes taking home underdogs, especially with reverse-line moment and a strong move showing value.
