    Hamilton Tiger-Cats vs. Saskatchewan Roughriders Preview and Predictions 07-05-2018 in CFL

    CFL Previews 2nd July 2018 by Gracenote
    The Hamilton Tiger-Cats look to extend their lead at the top of the East Division standings when they hit the road to face the Saskatchewan Roughriders on Thursday. The Tiger-Cats have notched back-to-back victories against the Edmonton Eskimos (38-21) and Winnipeg Blue Bombers (31-17), and hope to win three straight games for the first time since August 2015, while opening up a two-point lead over Ottawa and Montreal in the process.

    Hamilton quarterback Jeremiah Masoli leads the league in passing yards (1,045) and hopes to continue his hot start to the season by guiding the Tiger-Cats to their first win in Regina since July 26, 2015. The Roughriders are left to go back to the drawing board following a 23-17 loss to the Montreal Alouettes. Saskatchewan continues to be its own worst enemy as Brandon Bridge - starting in place of an injured Zach Collaros - threw two interceptions before being replaced in the second half by David Watford, who also tossed a pair of picks in the disappointing loss to a Montreal team which had dropped their previous 13 games. "We've taken a little downturn right now," Saskatchewan coach Chris Jones told reporters. "We've just got to believe in each other, keep working and keep chopping wood."

    TV: 9 p.m. ET, TSN

    ABOUT THE TIGER-CATS (2-1): Masoli completed 31-of-41 passes for 369 yards and a touchdown against Winnipeg to finish with more than 300 yards passing for the eighth straight game, which is one shy of matching the CFL record held by Sam Etcheverry (1956) and Kent Austin (1991). "He's just done a fabulous job," Hamilton coach June Jones told reporters. "He's doing the complete thing right now." Mercer Timmis continued his stellar start to the season as he rushed for two touchdowns to take his season total to four while Terrence Toliver caught his first touchdown pass since 2016 after missing the 2017 season with a knee injury.

    ABOUT THE ROUGHRIDERS (1-2): Chris Jones confirmed that Bridge will get the starting nod Thursday despite the Canadian quarterback going 8-of-18 for 111 yards and two interceptions against Montreal. Naaman Roosevelt was one of the lone bright spots on offence as he caught six passes for 73 yards and a touchdown while Charleston Hughes, who was acquired in an off-season trade with Hamilton, recorded his league-leading fourth sack. Saskatchewan signed former University of Michigan quarterback Devin Gardner, who was the rookie of the year in Japan's X-League in 2016, to the practice squad.

    EXTRA POINTS

    1. Saskatchewan has won three of the last four meetings with Hamilton.

    2. Tiger-Cats WR Brandon Banks leads the league with 21 receptions.

    3. The Roughriders have committed a league-high nine turnovers.

    PREDICTION: Tiger-Cats 28, Roughriders 24

    Play on: Tigers +101 at pinnacle

    Play - Detroit Tigers w/Boyd vs Gallardo (Game 910).

    Edges - Tigers: Boyd 2.61 ERA home as opposed to 5.55 ERA away this season; and 6-1 last seven overall team starts during July … Rangers: Gallardo 6.75 ERA with 1.50 WHIP aay this season… With Boyd 3-0 against AL West foes this campaign, we recommend a 1* play on Detroit. Thank you and good luck as always.

    MLB | Marlins vs Nationals
    Play on: Marlins +1½ -120 at 5Dimes

    Scott "The Bulldog" Rickenbach MLB Game #901 Thursday Free Pick Miami Marlins Run Line +1.5 runs @ Washington Nationals @ 7:05 ET - Great value here as we can lay a small price to have the added insurance of the +1.5 runs on the run line with the Marlins. Why fade the Nationals in this spot? Washington actually has a better record on the road than at home this season. The Nats are actually 4 games under .500 at home on the season and they are slumping badly right now. Washington enters this contest off of a home sweep at the hands of the Red Sox. The Nationals have not lost 5 straight games and 17 of their last 22! As for the Marlins, they've actually been playing respectable baseball for the past 5 weeks! Miami is 16-13 in their last 29 games. The reason I like the run line here is because for the Nationals to win by 2 or more runs they're going to have to put some significant runs up and that is unlikely to happen. Last week they had a game where they put up 17 runs against the Phillies. A "fluke game" if you will as it was just one of those crazy games that happens every once in awhile. Looking at the Nationals other 8 games from June 25th through yesterday, the Nats went 0-8 and never scored more than 4 runs in a game and averaged scoring only 1.9 runs per game! The Marlins lineup hasn't been lighting up the scoreboard but they've been better than the Nationals as Miami has averaged scoring 4.5 runs per game their last 12 games. Marlins starter Pablo Lopez pitched well in his MLB debut and had a 1.44 ERA in his 12 minor league starts this season. Nationals Jeremy Hellickson has given up 6 runs (5 earned) on 13 hits in the 10 innings spanning his last 3 starts. As bad as Washington has been lately, they're overpriced here! Free Pick Miami Marlins Run Line +1.5 runs

    MLB | Cardinals vs Giants
    Play on: Giants -131 at BMaker

    My free play is on the SF Giants at 10:15 ET. The Giants just completed a 3-3 road trip with three straight losses in Colorado, including a 1-0 setback on July 4th. San Francisco is 45-43, which leaves them third in the NL West (3 1/2 back of the first-place D'backs) as the Giants begin a 10-game stretch at AT&T Park with the opener of a four-game series against the 44-31 St. Louis Cardinals on Thursday. The Giants went 7-3 on their last homestand (June 18-28), while the Cardinals continue a nine-game road trip they began by winning two of three in Arizona, including an 8-4 triumph in Wednesday's rubber match. St. Louis sits in third-place in the NL Central, 6 1/2 games back of the first-place Brewers.

    Luke Weaver (4-7, 5.16 ERA) will take the mound for the Cards and he is coming off a poor outing against Atlanta on Saturday in which he was reached for eight runs on 10 hits over just 4.2 innings en route to his fifth loss in six decisions. Weaver has failed to last six innings in each of his last seven starts, allowing at least four runs in five of those outings. The third-year pitcher has allowed eight runs (but just two earned) over 9.2 innings while going 1-1 (1.86 ERA) in two career starts versus San Francisco.

    San Francisco's Johnny Cueto (3-0, 0.84 ERA will return from an elbow injury to make his first start since April 28, when he allowed two runs and three hits over six innings in a win over the Los Angeles Dodgers. Cueto has worked at least six innings in each of his five starts this season (Giants are 4-1) and gave up a total of just one run over 26 innings in his first four outings. Cueto owns a 7-8 record with two complete games and a 3.74 ERA in 23 career starts against St. Louis.

    Cueto will be making his 24th career start against the Cardinals (just 7-8 overall) but he has never lost to St. Louis since joining the Giants in 2016, going 2-0 with a 1.77 ERA in three starts. Meanwhile, Weaver has struggled in his last nine starts with just ONE win and he is coming off his worst outing of the season (see above). Take Cueto and the Giants, who enter having won 14 of their last 18 home games.

    Good luck...Larry

    Thursday's Diamond Notes
    Kevin Rogers

    Hottest team: Brewers (6-3 last nine)

    The hottest squad in the NL Central currently is the Cubs, who have won six consecutive games and sit one game out of first place. However, Chicago is off on Thursday as the top team in the division, Milwaukee, is fresh off a three-game home sweep of Minnesota. The Brewers own the second-most home victories in the National League with 27, while becoming the first team to reach the 50-win plateau in the NL (although four teams in the AL have won at least 55).

    Milwaukee welcomes in Atlanta in a battle of first-place squads on Thursday as the Braves have dropped two straight. Jhoulys Chacin takes the mound in the series opener, as Milwaukee went through a stretch from late April through mid-June posting an impressive 10-1 mark when the right-hander took the mound. However, the Brewers have lost each of Chacin’s last three starts, in spite of him giving up one earned run in two of those outings.

    Coldest team: Nationals (2-10 last 12)

    Things are quickly unraveling for the defending NL East champions as Washington suffered a three-game home sweep at the hands of Boston. The offense is nowhere to be found as the Nationals have scored 15 runs in their last eight losses, while posting a 17-spot in a 10-run victory at Philadelphia last Friday. Not only has Washington slipped below the .500 mark, but the Nationals are currently seven games behind the Braves for first place in the division.

    The Nationals hope to get on track as the Marlins visit D.C. for the weekend. Washington swept Miami in late May and has captured 11 straight matchups against its division rival since August 2017. Veteran Jeremy Hellickson heads to the hill tonight as the Nationals have put together an 8-1 mark to the UNDER in his last nine starts, while Washington is winless in his last two appearances.

    Hottest pitcher: Yovani Gallardo, Rangers (2-0, 9.00 ERA)

    From an ERA standpoint, this may not make a lot of sense why Gallardo is listed in this category. However, since joining Texas from Cincinnati in June, the Rangers have won all three of the right-hander’s starts since entering the rotation. The run support for Gallardo has been extremely helpful, as the Rangers 11 runs a game in this stretch, while the veteran is fresh off a seven-strikeout performance in a blowout win over the White Sox. Gallardo squares off with a struggling Tigers’ squad on Thursday, as Detroit has dropped 13 of its last 15 games.

    Coldest pitcher: Justin Verlander, Astros (9-4, 2.12 ERA)

    Justin Verlander, the former MVP and Cy Young winner owning a miniscule ERA is in this category? This is true as Verlander, who owned a 1.60 ERA after a 2-1 home defeat to the Rays on June 19, has been tagged for 16 hits and nine earned runs in his last two outings. Houston has failed to pick up a victory in Verlander’s last three trips to the mound, which has occurred twice this season. The good news is after his first three-start winless streak in May, Verlander turned in complete-game shutout over the Angels. Verlander is listed as a nearly -300 favorite in Thursday’s series opener against the White Sox, who Houston outscored, 27-2 in a three-game sweep in Chicago back in April.

    Biggest OVER run: White Sox (12-3 last 15)

    Chicago continues its 10-game road trip after dropping two of three at Cincinnati in spite of holding the lead in both losses. The Sox head down to Houston as their pitching staff has yielded at least five runs in each of the first six games of this trip. The offense has been terrific in the two road wins by scoring 10 and 12 runs, but has been limited to fewer than four runs in all four defeats. The task won’t be easy tonight against Houston’s Justin Verlander, while Sox starter Carlos Rodon has seen the OVER cash in each of his last three starts.

    Biggest UNDER run: Tigers (7-1 last eight)

    Detroit’s offense has disappeared of late by scoring three runs or less in seven of the past eight contests, while posting a total of five runs in a pair of losses in Chicago to the Cubs. The pitching hasn’t been terrible recently, as Detroit allowed a total of 11 runs in a four-game split at Toronto last weekend. But the lack of offense firepower has caught up with them since sitting at 36-37 on Father’s Day. The Tigers return to Comerica Park to host the Rangers for a four-game set, as Matthew Boyd heads to the mound in the opener. Boyd is winless in his last three outings, while giving up 14 runs in this stretch, as Detroit has hit the OVER in two of his past three home starts.

    Matchup to watch: Cardinals vs. Giants

    Two teams that have plenty of playoff experience this decade are seeking consistency as they hook up at AT&T Park this weekend. San Francisco swept Arizona last weekend, but its offense disappeared as it was swept by Colorado, while plating a total of three runs. The Cardinals dropped a three-game set at home to the Braves last weekend, but captured two of three at Arizona, including Wednesday’s 8-4 triumph.

    Johnny Cueto makes his first start for the Giants since getting sidelined in April due to an elbow sprain. Cueto put together terrific numbers through his first five outings by posting a 3-0 record and 0.84 ERA, while tossing scoreless efforts against the Diamondbacks, Dodgers, and Angels. In last season’s lone start against the Cardinals, Cueto was staked to a 5-2 lead before St. Louis rallied for an 11-6 win as he scattered four hits and two runs in 5.1 innings of work.

    Luke Weaver counters for the Cardinals, as the right-hander has actually been more productive on the road than at home. St. Louis has won six of Weaver’s eight away outings, compared to a 2-6 mark at Busch Stadium. Weaver was knocked around in his last start against Atlanta by giving up 10 hits and eight runs in 4.2 innings of an 11-4 loss. In Weaver’s past three away starts, the Cardinals’ offense has scored at least seven runs as St. Louis put together a 3-0 mark in those games.

    Betcha didn’t know: This PSA can’t be put out enough regarding the Padres. San Diego has compiled a remarkable 5-23 record in series openers this season as the Padres travel to Arizona to face the Diamondbacks. The Padres have dropped eight straight Game 1’s of a series, but did capture the series opener at Chase Field back in April, for what it’s worth.

    Biggest public favorite: Astros (-300) vs. White Sox

    Biggest public underdog: Rangers (+105) at Tigers

    Biggest line move: Diamondbacks (-139 to -148) vs. Padres

    Thursday, July 5


    STREAKING AND SLUMPING STARTING PITCHERS

    Streaking: Johnny Cueto, San Francisco Giants (3-0, 0.84 ERA, $353)

    He's back! Okay, so Cueto might not fit the traditional paradigm of the streaking pitcher, but he was en fuego through his first five starts before suffering a right elbow sprain that has sidelined him since late April. Cueto ranks 36th in starter value despite making just a handful of starts, with the Giants winning four of those five outings.

    We generally avoid starters in their first start following a lengthy injury, but getting him at -135 at home against a St. Louis team hitting just .237 on the road is too good to pass up. He's a highly recommended play Thursday.

    Slumping: Matthew Boyd, Detroit Tigers (4-6, 4.18 ERA, $308)

    Oh, Matt. You got off to such a good start! But alas, things have not gone so well of late, with Boyd having surrendered 14 runs in 13 innings over his previous three starts; not surprisingly, the Tigers lost all three. Boyd surrendered a home run in all three games and failed to reach the fifth inning in two of them; he remains in the black for the year, but he's fading fast.

    On the flip side, all three of those losses came on the road, where Boyd is 1-5 with a 5.55 ERA. A return to Comerica Park – where Boyd is 3-1 with a 2.61 ERA – might be just what he needs. Consider a flier on Boyd at -111 against visiting Texas.

    Thursday comp play winner is the Marlins and the Nationals to land Under the total.

    Miami comes into this series having played Low in 3 of their last 4 games. and the Under stands at 5-2-1 their last 8 games overall.

    Washington is on a 6-2 Under clip their last 8 games, and the Under in this series stands at 4-1-2 the last 7 times these division-rivals have faced one another.

    Pablo Lopez makes just his second start of the season, while Jeremy Hellickson has made 10 starts this year, 8 of those 10 holding Under the posted price.

    Limited offense tonight in D.C., as the Marlins and the Nationals land Under the total.

    2* MIAMI-WASHINGTON UNDER

    My free play for Thursday night is on the Detroit Tigers over the Texas Rangers, and I want you listing the scheduled starting pitchers: Matthew Boyd and Yovani Gallardo.

    The Rangers arrive in Motown having lost three in a row, a bit shocking, as they previously won three in a row by a combined final of 29-9. Texas has now lost five of nine, and that was preceded by a seven-game win streak that followed a seven-game losing streak.

    Talk about streaky.

    Things won't heal right away, as they're embarking on a 10-game road trip that will run through Detroit, Boston and Baltimore. After two tough-luck losses to the Houston Astros the last two nights, I don't see them starting this series off with a bang.

    It's a great spot for Boyd, who is winless in his last four starts, but looked good in taming his struggles with a quality start on Saturday in Toronto, where he settled for a no-decision. Good news is, he's in his element with a 3-1 mark and 2.61 ERA at Comerica Park this season.

    I trust Boyd much more than I do Gallardo, who will be making his fourth start of the season for the Rangers. His best start came in his last outing against the White Sox on Friday, but he also has a 6.11 ERA over his last three starts.

    Take Detroit tonight and list both.

    3* TIGERS (Boyd over Gallardo)

    Now on a 26-11 run with free picks after hitting the Philadelphia Phillies on the Run Line against the Baltimore Orioles, yesterday.

    For tonight's complimentary winner, I want you on the Minnesota Twins over the Baltimore Orioles. And I want you to list the starting pitchers Aaron Slegers over Andrew Cashner.

    Let's start with Slegers, who is making his first start of 2018, against the lowly Orioles. Slegers pitched 5.1 innings and allowed two runs in relief in his only other Major League appearance this season, back on May 30 in Kansas City. Tonight the young right-hander will be looking to make a statement with the chance he's been waiting on.

    And he couldn't ask for a better opponent to try and earn his first big-league win, as Baltimore is the worst team in the American League with a 24-61 mark, and is mired in a 2-9 slide.

    The Orioles are just 12-32 on the highway - the worst road mark in baseball - and they have the worst road batting average in the league at .221.

    The Orioles won't stand a chance against the Twins, who need a big series after losing six straight and eight of 10. This is a series that could turn things around, especially tonight against Cashner, whose last win was on May 21,

    Play the Twins and list both.

    5* TWINS (Slegers over Cashner)
