6/27 Cheering & Venting, Jon Lester is starting at FENWAY!

Postby wingman3110 » Thu Jun 27, 2013 7:51 am

As I was filling out my card for the day, I occasionally place some well strategized baseball bets every now and then, I found some very interesting Jon Lester splits that may or may not be useful.

Home: 34.2 innings, 2.86 ERA, 1.15 WHIP, 27 K's and opponent BA of .227

Away: 65.2 innings, 5.48 ERA, 1.48 WHIP, 56 K's and opponent BA of .275

Yes, there is a pretty significant innings difference between home/away but I would feel comfortable today tossing the lefty out there.

This week Boston has lost the Stanley Cup Finals by giving up 2 goals in 17 seconds, and had their All Pro Tight End get arrested for murder. I don't see their luck turning with Jon Lester this week.

I believe that Lackey pitching like an ace wiped out their luck quota this week/month/year. Of course he was benched on my roster in favor of Mr. 2 start Buehrle (who sucked in start #1) but I can't really complain since I traded Jorge Polanco and an irrelevant draft pick for him.

Strasburg vs. Corbin today, I'm fairly excited to see if Corbin can take him down.

Vegas does have Boston at -$170. I wouldn't be comfortable making that bet, but it's enough for me to start Lester today.

They may win but it'll also likely be 8 - 6

Take the over, it's only 9.5.


Strasburg/Corbin is a 6.5 total, that's the lowest I've seen in a while.
