October 18th, 2016 Betting Tips: MLB Playoffs, NHL

Last night we saw a very ugly football game and a baseball game that saw the Cleveland Indians get to just one game away from the World Series. The Toronto fanbase is feeling very sad right now and the players are lashing out with accusations that the game is rigged, which is absolutely ridiculous. If you can’t hit the ball, you can’t win the game. If the other team outscores you, you lose. That’s it. Blaming the umpires for specific bad plays is one thing, but to blame entire losses (three of them!) on umpires is a joke.

These two teams play the fourth and possibly final game today and the Indians are in great shape to close it out with former Cy Young (and this year’s possible winner) Corey Kluber on the mound. The bullpen has been getting it done for the Indians in the playoffs, but it has been Kluber that has allowed the bullpen to stay fresh. Bullpen game-Kluber game-bullpen game-Kluber game. Let’s see if that winning formula works again tonight against Aaron Sanchez.

We’ll also see the Chicago Cubs head to Los Angeles for game three of the NLCS. The Cubs have had trouble with lefties thus far in the playoffs and Rich Hill looks to have a better NLCS than NLDS as he struggled mightily against the Nationals. He goes against last year’s Cy Young winner Jake Arrieta. This should be a hell of a game and it’s hard to see this series going as quickly as the Indians-Jays looks to be.

It’s early, but the Oilers and Hurricanes have seen the total go over on every game they’ve played thus far this season. These two teams play again tonight and it seems like goal scoring shouldn’t be a problem for either club. Let’s keep that streak rolling as this one goes over 5.5 goals.

MLB Betting Tips:

On paper, this Kluber and Sanchez should be absolutely fantastic. Two great pitchers with Cy Young cases doing battle in an elimination playoff game. The problem is that Aaron Sanchez is way, way past his innings career high and hasn’t looked solid in the past month. His lone NLDS start against the Rangers saw him get rocked for six runs in a Jays win. Six runs would be more than enough for the Indians to win this game and he’ll need to be much better than that. We don’t know what we’re getting with him, but we do know what to expect from Kluber and the Indians bullpen: domination. The Indians +115 in a great position to punch their ticket to the World Series tonight.

The Dodgers ended the season on one of their hottest hitting streaks of the season. While that team has not showed itself in the playoffs, neither have the Cubs in the playoffs who have seen the heart of their order go powerless. This one should be about scratching for runs with Arrieta and Hill on the mound. One thing that sticks out here is the platoon advantage. The Cubs have been killed by lefties thus far in the postseason while the Dodgers hit righties far better than they hit lefties. That match-up is in play with the starting pitching and if the good version of Rich Hill shows up, the Cubs don’t have a chance. Dodgers +112 can take the lead in this one tonight.
