MLB: Cubs just can’t beat bad teams
2010-07-20

The Chicago Cubs have been one of baseball’s biggest disappointments this season. While not unanimous preseason favorites in the N.L. Central, at least a few experts gave the Cubs a chance at competing for the division crown. Sitting at 10-games below .500 overall after Monday’s loss to Houston, Chicago is in dire straits. Strangely, one of the primary reasons for their struggles has been their inability to take care of business against lesser foes. Let’s get deeper into that subject and look closer at their chances for getting a win Tuesday night vs. the Astros, where they will be playing as -235 home favorites according to Sportsbook.com.

Diehard Cubs' fan Jim Belushi once starred in a movie titled "Taking Care of Business". His team certainly hasn't done that, and bettors need look no further than trends for evidence of team’s performance tendencies and the following list from FoxSheets underscore the Cubs’ ineptitude this season:

• CHICAGO CUBS are 18-31 (-24.8 Units) against the money line when playing against a team with a losing record this season. The average score was CHICAGO CUBS 3.9, OPPONENT 4.6 - (Rating = 3*)

Think about that for a second, if Chicago is 13-games below .500 against teams with losing records, it means they are 3-games over .500 against winning clubs. If the Cubs had simply only played 25-24 baseball against the league’s lesser teams, they would be only 3-1/2 games out of the Central lead right now and in contention.

• CHICAGO CUBS are 8-18 (-19.1 Units) against the money line vs. an NL team with a team batting average of .245 or worse this season. The average score was CHICAGO CUBS 3.5, OPPONENT 4.3 - (Rating = 4*)

The Cubs are 19.1 units in the hole for bettors who have backed them against the league’s worst hitting clubs this season. Strangely, pitching isn’t the problem. As you can see, they are producing only 3.5 runs per game offensively themselves against these weak hitting foes. Unfortunately, it doesn’t stop there…

• CHICAGO CUBS are 17-29 (-23.6 Units) against the money line vs. a poor bullpen whose ERA is 4.50 or worse this season. The average score was CHICAGO CUBS 4.5, OPPONENT 5.1 - (Rating = 3*)

Typically, teams are able to mount come from behind rallies against poor bullpens. Such has not been the case for Chicago.

• CHICAGO CUBS are 15-28 (-22.6 Units) against the money line vs. poor power teams - averaging 0.9 or less HR's/game this season. The average score was CHICAGO CUBS 3.2, OPPONENT 4.0 - (Rating = 3*)

The Cubs are 13-games below .500 against teams that don’t hit a lot of home runs, returning a negative 52.5% on investment.

• CHICAGO CUBS are 7-22 (-25.2 Units) against the money line vs. NL teams scoring 4.3 or less runs/game on the season this season. The average score was CHICAGO CUBS 2.9, OPPONENT 4.4 - (Rating = 6*)

Perhaps the ugliest nugget of all, Chicago is not only allowing its run-starved opponents to outscore their normal averages, it’s own offense is producing just 2.9 runs per game on this trend. With an ROI of -86.9%, this trend gets a 6* rating from FoxSheets.

And finally…

• CHICAGO CUBS are 6-15 (-19.7 Units) against the money line as a favorite of -150 or more this season. The average score was CHICAGO CUBS 3.7, OPPONENT 4.9 - (Rating = 5*)

Chicago is 9-games under .500 when playing to its biggest chalk lines this season. Of course, this will be put to test tonight, as the Cubs are an “Astro-nomical” minus-235 favorite against the Astros behind Ryan Dempster. The Cubs are just 9-16 (-11.9 units) over the last two years in divisional play behind Dempster, and 15-26 overall versus Central Division rivals in 2010.

Meanwhile, the Astros boast a 21-16 divisional record this season, producing 11.9 units of profit. They will turn the ball over to Wesley Wright, who after 126 MLB relief appearance and a recent stint in Triple-A, makes his first career start.

Game time is set for 8:05 PM ET from Wrigley Field, and while the StatFox Power Line suggests that Chicago still holds value up to -207, the savvy bettor can’t help but be scared off tonight’s mega-price.


MLB: Top MLB Weekend Power Trends 7/31-8/2
2009-07-31

Friday is trade deadline day. Football Live Betting Lines nfl football betting Online Bingo Online Bingo Rooms Play Bingo online NFL Lines Saturday marks the first day of August. In the world of Major League Baseball, both are important on the annual calendar, meaning this weekend is a pivotal one in the sport. For the contenders who’ve made moves to acquire more talent, it’s go time for the last two months. For those who made themselves sellers, it’s time to develop young players while relegated to the role of spoiler. Of course, both types of teams will be in action over the next few days. Read on as we take a look at the action featuring teams with something still to play for, plus reveal some of the Top StatFox Power Trends available on the weekend schedule.

The National League features two premiere matchups on the schedule this weekend. In the first one, the suddenly hot Cubs will be hitting the road to take on Florida. Chicago comes off a 6-1 homestand that extended an overall recent surge of 13-4. That run has enabled the Cubbies to climb back into a tight battle with St. Louis atop the Central Division. Chicago has taken six of the last eight between these two teams after struggling prior. The Marlins have recovered from a disastrous 3-game home sweep at the hands of the Phillies a couple of weeks ago to get back in the wildcard hunt, just behind San Francisco. A couple of key trends will be tested in this series, since Florida is just 8-14 vs. N.L. Central clubs while Chicago has endured a season of struggles on the road, just 21-27 for -8.3 units.

The other key senior circuit series offers a potential divisional series preview, as the Phillies and Giants continue a 4-game set from San Francisco. It should be a great series for fans of dominant young starting pitchers, as both teams boast great rotations. In fact, the wildcard-leading Giants allow just 3.7 runs per game, nearly a half run better than anyone else in baseball. The Phillies meanwhile, don’t boast those kinds of numbers, but they just recently enhanced their rotation, and chances for a second straight pennant, by adding former Indians’ ace Cliff Lee to the fold. This also figures to be a great matchup since again, something will have to give. The Giants are the league’s best home team, while Philadelphia is the premiere road team in baseball.

In the American League, the tightest race is in the Central Division, where Detroit, Minnesota, and Chicago are separated by just three games. The Tigers lead the fray but will be the only team on the road this weekend. Does that give them a disadvantage? Perhaps not when you consider that they will be taking on Cleveland, who despite playing better of late, has been one of the most active sellers in the trade market. The Indians are clearly building for the future. Meanwhile, the Twins will be hosting the West-leading Angels, and the White Sox are taking on the East-leading Yankees. Both of those road teams are red-hot, so it could be said that Detroit actually does hold the scheduling edge over its closest competitors this weekend.

Another eye-catching series in the junior circuit pits Seattle at Texas. The Rangers continue to beat most experts’ preseason predictions by playing good solid baseball all-around. They have gotten far more production out of their starting pitching staff than ever expected, but are also hitting the ball in Ranger-like fashion. They are right on the heels of the Red Sox for the A.L. Wildcard spot and will look to continue an impressive stretch against divisional foes. Texas was 18-8 versus A.L. West clubs going into Thursday’s series opener.
