MLB -NL- Leader for Rookie of the Year

MLB Betting News – NL Leader for Rookie of the Year

matt duffy of the san Francisco GiantsAs the 2015 MLB Season goes forward in the 2nd half of the season, it’s high time to look at whose leading the race for the National League rookie of the 2015 season.

At Present the leader is the not so well known, Matthew Michael Duffy of the San Francisco Giants who started this 2015 season as a back-up infielder, but has become the 3rd base starter after the veteran C. McGehee failed at his chance at the position. Coming into this week in the MLB up to and thru July 28th 2015 Duffy is averaging at the bat .305/.346/.469 and has 16 doubles, 4 triples, 46 RBI’s with 9 HR’s.

Duffy is leading all rookies rated at 3.4, with Pittsburgh J. Hang at 3.0, the Cubs Bryant at 2.6, the Cardinals R. Grichuk 2.6 and the Dodgers Pederson at 2.4. If you think he’s leading as statistical jumbo, think again. At present OPS (on base plus slugging) is at .814 Pederson is .810 and Bryant is .806, and when you add to that his great defensive play at 3rd base, he appears presently to be the most valuable in the majors this 2015. That and for this month he is 3rd at the bat with a team that is full of good hitters.

His manager of the Giants B. Bochy stated that Duffy has a great eye at the bat, and he hits to all fields, and he’s a very difficult out at the bat, and he doesn’t believe having Duffy hit 3rd has given him any additional pressure, and to date he’s been excellent.

Many a sportsbook are closely looking at the roster and now its a wait and see game as we end July and move into August to see if he continues his hitting and defensive edge. In July, he averaged .323 and that was enough to continue hitting the Giants 3rd position in the lineup. He had 5 HR’s in June but only 1 this July to date.  One concern by his manager, is that he loves inside pitches,

and he wonders if the opponents will start working the outside in upcoming games against Duffy.

If you looked at Duffy’s college baseball statistics you would not be impressed, but the Giants scout B. Cameron saw some potential in Duffy and thought he would be a positive addition to the Giants Roster. But he has been amazed to see an 18th round pick from the draft, who hit no home runs in his college career to develop so soon.

His manager said that a big change this year is that Duffy has lowered his hand grip on the bat, and that likely is a reason he is hitting the insiders so well, and plus the fact that he has begun to get more lower body weight into his swing, and that generally creates more hitting power. Duffy said he likes to watch B. Posey because he has a very good batting stance, and generated a lot of powers with his lower body, especially the legs.

Of course not everyone who is into mlb baseball betting agrees as it seems like people are also torn between Bryant or Pederson over Duffy. We will have to wait and see because there still are some 60 games left in the season, and a lot can still happen to each individual player! Let’s look back again in the end of August as see how these prospects are faring.

NFL Betting Tutorial: Betting Strategies

NFL Betting Tutorial: Betting Strategies

NFL Betting Tutorial: Betting StrategiesWith the 2015-16 NFL season rapidly approaching we thought we would give you some NFL Betting Strategies to improve your odds to increase your gambling profit margin.

So here are a few NFL betting strategies to give you the best chance at winning some money during this coming NFL season.

It is important for you to realize that one needs to win some 52.5% of your bets on the NFL betting at -110 odds to insure a profit for the season.  Now that does not sound impossible, but only the best of the best are getting 53 plus % winners each and every year.

The 1st strategy we suggest is using a money management system.

That’s because when you bet during the season, you should allocate a particular amount of cash to bet, that your sure you can afford to lose, and we call that your ‘personal bankroll’. You can do this on a weekly, monthly or on a seasonal basis.

An example is you could allocate some $2,000 dollars for the entire NFL 2015-16 seasons to use as your bankroll.  To start you should consider betting from 2 to 5 % on each bet, betting 2% on you less favorite games and 5% for the games that you like very much! If you use this example, you would be able to bet from $40 to $120 on each bet. A mistake many beginners make is to increase their bet if one wins, or when losing they make larger bets. One has to remember that the season is long and one must manage the money the best possible way.

The 2nd recommended strategy is to seek teams that have advantages.

Doing that you look for NFL lines and odds where a team may have somewhat of an advantage.  As it works out some weeks you may be making more bets than other weeks, depending on the advantages you can find in the odds.  But whatever you do, don’t force bets because you think it will make a game more enjoyable; instead find the games that are good bets for making profit and stay within your predetermined bankroll system.

Then there is a 3rd strategy for betting on the NFL and that is, you need to shop the lines.

So to be certain you make some cash this season, spend some time and do some line shopping, which is merely checking the lines at some different sportsbooks or betting sites. When doing that, compare the lines and odds on the teams you’re considering to bet on with at least 3 to 4 other betting facilities. This particular strategy can help you become victorious is some game that you would otherwise lose.

The 4th strategy is very important, don’t bet after drinking, and don’t panic and make bets when your tilted or losing.

I know that sounds very obvious, but there are thousands of bettors that don’t follow that recommendation during every NFL weekend. Isn’t it strange that Vegas casino offer their gamblers alcoholic beverages? Drinking has been medically proven that it impairs one’s judgments’, so wait until the game has begun to have your drinks, and then make sure to not beat anymore that day.
Bet on Sports at CRsportsBet.ag
If you Bet at an online betting site, remember not to panic when you lose, as the best NFL bettors and handicappers lose at least 40% of their bet. So be certain you have a clear mind, when you’re making your bets, and if you were losing, don’t try to get even. Don’t panic, and be calm before you start placing your bets, and you will become a winner!

Detroit Tiger Betting - Are the Detroit Tigers in Decline?

Detroit Tiger Betting – Are the Tigers in Decline?

Detroit Tiger Betting If you are a avid baseball fan, and are watching as the Tigers of Detroit get their last whoopee, as the team we thought we knew, now find out their powerhouse that has the best pitcher in baseball they claim in J. Verlander, accompanied by the best slugger in M. Cabrera and their cast of supporters things  when suddenly things change. Yes the casual fans also came to know those players in the ultimate 4 Octobers to be the winners.

We were just talking about the AL Central when it actually was a dynasty of that division, because the Tigers of Detroit won that title for 4 straight years. That stretch began with a season with 95 wins and a spots in the 2011 ALCS, then a trip to the World Series, and loss in ALCS and then swept in last season’s ALDS. Yes a run like that going 3 of 4 years to a League Championship could make a team franchise jealous.

Then coming into 2015 they appeared to be a winning team using their offseason to get ready to contend this season. The kept D. Price on the roster, trading for Y. Cespedes, and made some changes that were to strengthen the team.  They began the season going through the 20th of April, with 11 wins and only 2 losses.

However, after that they have not played very good, and sometimes very bad. Yes, they have had injuries some expected like Verlander and Martinez while Cabrera was surprising. Then their bullpen is again struggling, and Tuesday gave the fans a reminder as they lost to the Mariners 11-9!

Starting back in May the Tiger have manage to record a losing record for each month since then. The reports surfacing that they may be selling players, as the trade deadline nears as they try to make adjustments.

Something that does not help them in decision making,  is the fact that this section of the schedule leading up to the trade date is very weak, and if they get a hot streak then they could turn in to buyers at the trade deadline, and it’s entirely possible that they could still see a 5th consecutive playoff spot.

It remains to be seen as they still maintain a loss record with Cincinnati and Milwaukee, and they gave up 11 runs on this past Tuesday against Seattle. Even if the team makes a turn around, their schedule will not help we believe, because this is not the same team the fans are accustomed to watching. To win the American League Central again would be incredible since they are 10 games back of the Royals of Kansas City.

As it stand we think their best chance is a wild card spot if they can play their way and hope to catch some of the Royals magic number, before they could lose several key players to the free agency which could bring about a re-building of this franchise taking into consideration the all important age regression of their present roster.

Yes if you’re a fan of baseball and Bet on MLB and bet at Offshore betting sites, you surely know these are not the Tigers of old, as in this month’s power rankings they are ranked 16th with a record of 46 wins and 47 losses and are 3rd in the AL Central behind the Twins at 50-43 and the leader, the Royals in 1st at 56 and 36.

Before Stage 15 of Le tour de France began on Sunday, Team Sky practiced warming up with the presence of police troops in response to a previous incident where a fan threw some urine at the Tour’s leader C. Froome.

In this Stage 15 the majority of the climbs were located in the 1st part of the route, and as most expected, many of the cyclers had difficulties in keeping with the pace. One of the 1st victims was M. Cavendish who struggled with the steady climb and fast pace as he lost a lot of ground in the field. A. Kristoff a 3 time Green Jersey winner jumped into an early lead from the 27 riders as he took all 20 points at the inner sprint.
Bet on Sports at CRsportsBet.ag
The break was exceptional as the field did not seem interested in chasing. However, once they caught up with the leaders, the pace was increased. Then having 10 kilometers left the train sprints took the lead as the BMC team had a great shift.

In this Stage 15 there one was not able to escape the fast sprinters, but Greipel managed to stay ahead of J. Degenkolb and Kristoff as Sagan ended up 4th. The exhausted Greipel praised his teammates as done through this tour, as his team kept him wind free and out in front and worked out just great for him.

MLB Betting Preview - Rangers vs. Astros!

MLB Betting Preview – Rangers vs. Astros

MLB Betting Preview - Rangers vs. Astros!With the 2015 MLB Home Run Derby and the All-Star game in our past that ended the first half of the season and the All-Star Game that was played on Tuesday the 14th of July 2015, we move on to the 2nd half of the 2015 MLB Season.

The 2nd half of the 2015 MLB Season begins on Friday the 17th of July 2015 and we see the Rangers of Texas 42-46 are playing at the Astros of Houston 49-42 both of the American League West on Friday at 10:05 PM ET with the game being played at the Minute Maid Park in Houston, Texas.

This game in Houston is the 1st game of a 3 game series between the Rangers and the Astros and they say the time has come for the Astros to show fans they are a little more than sensations of the 1st half of the 2015 MLB as they try to recover from a 6 losing streak and they play the Rangers who are coming off a 2 game losing streak themselves.

For those that are Rangers of Texas fans and Bet on MLB baseball at an Online sportsbook, you may also be fans of the Astros of Houston Texas, who really knows?  However, for the Rangers fans the month of July has been terrible for the Rangers, as their pitchers struggled and the team as a whole only had 2 wins and 8 losses in their ultimate 10 games to date in July 2015. That also included 5 straight losses in the period from the 3rd of July through the 8th of July 2015, while they were out scored 44 runs to 14 runs for the period.

So if the Rangers pitching rotation cannot step up then you can expect more of the same, as to date the Rangers starters have the worst ERA at 6.71 in the MLB American League.  Their 1 pitcher who has done well, especially this past Sunday was Y. Gallardo even as the lost 2-1 as their offensive power did not show up for that game.  The Rangers may put C. Lewis on the mound on Friday even with his high ERA of 4.77 for the season to date. However, overall his record is 8 wins and 4 losses, and that’s because as a pitcher he is 4th in the MLB having run support for each 9 innings of 6.79.

Bet on Sports at CRsportsBet.agHowever, the starter for the Rangers, whoever that may be, will have the offensive support of E. Andrus and A. Beltre who have been hitting well. Andrus hit 2 doubles in his last 5 outings going 5 for 14 with an average of .358 while Beltre for the same period hit a HR, had 3 doubles and was 7 for 20 averaging .351.  In the ultimate 3 games in Houston the Rangers have went undefeated at 3-0.

For the Astros fans of Houston, the 2015 All-Star break may be what the team needed to overcome their losing their ultimate 6 games of the 1st half.  Amazingly, during those 7 games the Astros only managed to score some 7 total runs or .86 runs each game for the period.

Their starting pitcher for this game is Collin McHugh whom has an ERA of 4.50 and has 9 wins and 5 losses for the season, and he certainly will be seeking more offensive run support in this Friday game from his fellow teammates. However, for July McHugh has struggled and is only 0-2 and that included a lost to Tampa Bay on Friday the 10th of July 2015.  In the Astros last 10 home games they have 8 wins and 2 losses which is not too shabby for the betting fans.

The experts are predicting a close game but they expect the Rangers to beat the Astros 4-3!

2015 Tour de France - Stage 9 Betting Recap

2015 Tour de France – Stage 9 Betting Recap

2015 Tour de France - Stage 9 Betting RecapWith the 2015 Tour de France coming off stage nine on Sunday the 12th of July 2015 it was Britain’s famous Chris Froome who came up the overall leader in this stage and got the yellow jersey after a very difficult and close time trial for the teams in Brittany today.

The team Sky which id Froome’s team were the last to get on the 28 Km route and his team finished in second place just a few seconds behind the Racing team BMC.  Their leading rider is the 2013 champion and American rider in T. van Garderen now is the overall leader in the stages, leading by some 12 seconds.

In this stage 9 Froome was able to make more time on the 2 time winner A. Contador, N. Quintana and defending champ V. Nibali. The Italian Nibali was the big loser for the day in the race between what they call the ‘top four’ as his team Astana ended some 35 seconds back of the winners. Now Nibali is trailing Froome by some 2 minutes and twenty two seconds.  Froome said he was surprised Nibali and lost so much time this soon, and did not expect that as he expected him to be one of the main contenders who could make up time in these early stages of the Tour de France. Quintana and Nibali having lost a lot of time to date will have the pressure to make up time as the attack the climbing routes.

One analysis from an online sportsbook Sports said that in the contenders there may be up to 30 second gaps, and said Nibali’s struggling makes it time for him to start looking at Garderen as a real challenger for this 2015 Tour de France. Plus the team sky had some riders that did well on the course of the time trial. Yes their right again, but better is the fact the Garderen goes into the mountainous routes with a good lead over the most treacherous rivals, while his team show great unity and team strength, and their enjoying same.  That’s why many have said he appears as the next champion in the Tour de France.

The Movistar team and was just some 4 seconds behind the leader as Quintana gained precious time on Nibali and Contador as he now trails the leader Froome by just 1 minute and some 57 seconds.
Bet on Sports at CRsportsBet.ag
The Tinkoff-Saxo team of Contador was 29 seconds behind the BMC team and that put him some 62 seconds back of Froome as the Spanish rider is seeking to win the Tour de France and Giro d’Italia in the same season.

The American Van Garderen who finished 5th in 2013 his trying to get himself in the position to beat Froome this 2015, as he said he will start to click as the mountain races begin on Tuesday, as Monday is a day to rest.

For those that Bet on Sports at a Sportsbook stay tuned for the next stage 10 which takes place on Tuesday the 14th of July 2015 on a mountain route in a 167 km ride with the steepest part at the Col de Soudet and the finish a new site, La Pierre Saint Martin in Pyrenees At antiques, and this certainly will bring a change of scenery and some tough riding a mountain route which includes some 3 category 4 climbs that are very trying!

MLB ALL-STAR - Home Run Derby Betting Preview

MLB ALL-STAR – Home Run Derby Betting Preview

MLB ALL-STAR - Home Run Derby Betting PreviewWe are just days away from the 2015 All-Star Home Run Derby and the 2015 All-Star Game that brings us the teams that fans primarily selected because of their love for the long ball hitters!

Thus on Monday the 13th of July 2015 you will see the best of all the Home Run Contests, as a few of the most fierce and powerful sluggers in today’s MLB will take the plate at the All American Ball Park for the 2015 Home Run Derby in Cincinnati, Ohio with the All-Star game to follow on Tuesday the 14th of July 2015.

Here is the latest scoop from our sportsbook blog on the recently tweaked rules for the 2015 MLB Home Run Derby.

The bracket for the Derby will be similar to a Madness of March Single Elimination Bracket that puts the eight participants, after the picks were evaluated after the July 7th totals for home runs by the MLB players. The brackets breaks down like this:

Before giving you the low down on the participants, here’s a brief primer on the tweaked Home Run Derby rules: Bracket A has #1 A. Pujols vs. #8 K. Bryant then Bracket B has #4 J. Pederson vs. #5 M. Machado. In Bracket C we have #3 J. Donaldson vs. #6 A. Rizzo and Bracket D has #2 T. Frazier vs. #7 P. Fielder.

Then the Winner of Bracket A will play the winner of Bracket B. That winner moves on to the final Bracket. The winner of Bracket C will play the winner of Bracket D and that will now give us the two players who will compete for the 2015 MLB Home Run Derby Title.

Naturally the players that hit more homers in each bracket will advance until one has won the Title. If there should be a tie there will be a 90 second swing off challenge until a winner has qualified.

This year the HR Derby will have a 5 minute time limit for each batter on each hitting round, and that begins with the 1st pitch that is thrown to each batter. Then after home runs are hit in the last minute the timer stops. It will not start again until the hitter hits a non home run ball, and/or swings without hitting the ball. The HR participants are also given a chance to earn bonus time if in every round they have hit a number of home runs for a particular difference. There is a table to explain that at MLB.com.

Now let’s take a brief look at the eight sluggers!

MLB ALL-STAR - Home Run Derby Bracket Preview

First let’s note that the favorites are A. Pujols, T. Frazier and J. Donaldson. Pujols of the Angels is the No. 1 pick from the American League which he leads with 26 homeruns as of July 7th 2015 and is very familiar with the Cincinnati Stadium.

Next is T. Frazier of the Red who made in to the final round in 2014 but lost to Y. Cespedes. To date he has 25 homers in only 21 games this season, and for the season last year finished with 29 home runs which he certainly will beat this season.

The No. 3 pick is the Blue Jay’s homer king J. Donaldson who also was in the 2014 Derby. This season he has a best for the Toronto team with 21 homers.
Bet on Sports at CRsportsBet.ag

Then comes what they all the sleepers for the No.4 thru No. 6 picks with J. Pederson, M. Machado and A. Rizzo and the 3 are young guys that are out to prove they can smoke the ball also. The No.4 pick is J. Pederson of the Dodgers and leads his team with 20 homeruns to date. He will begin the Derby against M. Machado who is the No. 5 pick who has 16 homers thru the 7th of July and has had 5 HR’s in his last 5 games. The No. 6 pick is A. Rizzo of the Cubs and has 16 HR’s to date and lead’s his team in all batting categories.

For those that do a bit of MLB Betting, here is a little sports handicapping hint, the No. 7 pick is P. Fielder of the Texas Rangers who has been in the Derby some 5 times and won the Title in 2009 and 2012. To date this year he only has 13 home runs and this Stadium for the 2015 Derby is his favorite ball park for HR’s as he has hit 12 out the part hits there. Then the No. 8 and final pick completing this 2015 Derby is K. Bryant who did not homer in his 1st 22 games but since has hit 12 home runs.

So baseball fans get ready for this 2015 slugfest as the media experts thinks P. Fielder of the Rangers will win this 2015 Home Run Derby and that would be for the 3rd time.

Tour de France 2015 – Stage 4 Recap!

Tour de France 2015 - Stage 4 Recap!As the 2015 Tour de France for Cycling continues and completes the 4th stage of the 2015 we will look as some of this Stage 4 results and highlights that took place yesterday Tuesday Morning the 7th of July 2015.

The German T. Martin had a brilliant finish on this past Tuesday to win the Stage 4 of the 2015 Tour de France, as her finished in front of the peloton on French territory.

The German rider started the day with a single second deficit to C. Froome by only 1 second in the general classification. Now with the win on the cobblestones and dusty roads in the north of France, Martin will begin the 5th stage wearing the yellow jersey.

Martin actually launched a late attack after passing the last stretch of cobblestone roadway, and riding the bike of a team mate, was able to stay ahead of the pack as he gave it his all in the final run, and was able to beat the pursuing cycling sprinters by just a few seconds in this stage 4.

Remember that on Monday the cyclers had a big crash, and 1 biker had a trip to the hospital, and it was confirmed later on Monday that he would not be able to ride for stage 4 on Tuesday.

With the race just 1 hour old and reporting of light rain and some dangerous crosswinds that could hit the cobblestone roads awaiting the pack, the race pace was stepped up to a very fast pace. It was the Sky team that pushed the pace.

Then came the first section of cobblestone roadway and thankful without an incidents, and that left only 6 more sections of the same cobblestone paths left in the race, while the teams and pack began to prepare for the spring. The top honors for the lead group was taken by T. De Gendt, while M. Cavendish won the sprint for the tack and taking points away from A. Greipel and Sagan for the sprinters.
Bet on Sports at CRsportsBet.ag
Now the 2nd section of cobblestone roadway was just a few kilometers away, and the riders were no facing the threat of thunderstorms, and the pack seemed to be preparing for another day of possible crashes. The 1st to crash was D. Martin and that happened quickly, and the Sky team picked up the tempo and took control of that 2nd cobblestone section, and then the sun broke up, diminishing the threats of thunderstorms.

In the next sector of the race, one of the favorites, A. Kristoff had a tire puncture that ended his hope of winning the stage. The general classification favorites of Cavendish and Sagan were able to in this section to position themselves very well preparing for the unexpected.

Incredibly the 1st peloton were able to stick together in the cobblestone sections of roadways, which did not take place in last year’s race. Then in the final stretch surfaced the 1st attacks as V. Nibali, Froome, Degenkolb and Stybar joined the pact that was made up of some 8 riders in the race. This group then seemed to fall apart as many riders to move forward from the back of the pack.

For those thinking about placing a bet at an online sportsbook and are into the 2015 Tour de France, you must know at this point of the race the German Martin with just 3 kilometers to the finish, was thrilled with his chances of winning the yellow jersey, so the time trial expert, stepped up his pace and won this 4th stage and the yellow jersey at the same time.

Are These Yankees Players Worth $440 Millions?

Are These Yankees Players Worth $440 Millions?

Are These Yankees Players Worth $440 Millions?Back in the last part of the 2013 MLB season and in between the 2014 spring training camps, the Yankees of New York vowed some $440 million dollars to 4 of their players with the goal of getting a return on that investment. To date, they have not made a playoff game and have recouped very little on that sizeable investment.

That is not necessarily a sign of poor negotiations, but the true value has not been revealed to date. The 4 players that were signed in these high value deal were: Carlos Beltran, Brian McCann, Masahiro Tanaka and Jacoby Ellsbury.

In those days the Yankees passed on renewing the contract of R. Cano and the deal he demanded of 10 years, and that’s when the 4 players in McCann, Beltran, Tanaka and Ellsbury became New York Yankees.

According to most sportsbook review websites ,the Yankees after signing the mention 4 players for some $440 million to long term deals, and again did not make the playoffs in the 2014 season. This 20015 season at the All-Star break finds the Yankees in a dogfight for the top spot in the AL East with 4 other teams, in a very competitive division.

Of the 4 players that signed before the start of 2014, only one, McCann, is proving his worth; while the other 3 have been affected by injury problems or saddled with not performing to par. The problem here, is that normally in long term deals the player are expected to have their top performances in the early years of the contract. That’s because in a long extended contract, the team will normally experience fewer returns on their investment in most cases.

Ellsbury is on the 2nd year of his $153 million 7 year contract and is on the Yankees disabled list at present, and has not played in a game since back on the 19th on May 2015. He also had injury problems in 2014 but played mediocre, and this season to date actually played 37 games and missed 40 games to date.

For Beltran his 2014 season was not spectacular, as he only average .233 at the bat having 50 RBIs and some 15 homeruns for the season and due to an elbow injury did not play in 53 games and in the offseason had surgery on his elbow. This 2015 he seemed healthier and hitting .262 with 31 RBIs and 7 HRs in his 66 games to date, but remember he’s 38 and has 1 additional year on his $47 million dollar contract.

But their 4th player and pitcher Tanaka is the player that is the most frustrating case for the Yankees, as he was signed with the reputation of being a incredible starting pitcher who was given a 7 year contract for some $155 million, and that does not count his signing fee of $20 million.

For those that Bet on MLB at an online Sportsbook, you may remember Tanaka was the certified Japanese Ace with an ERA of 2.30 and a record of 99-35 playing for the Golden Eagles of Rakuten for some seven seasons. In his first season, at least the 1st half of that season it appeared he would duplicate his past in the USA. Then the unthinkable happened when he encountered a torn ligament in his pitching elbow, that took place on the 8th of July against the Indians, and since he has not performed to his potential.

Overall the Yankees management and Manager Cashman said their deal was made, and there’s no going back, and now we can only look for the future to bring us success, and hope it will not be a bust of monumental proportions.
