Fantasy Baseball Week 3 2013 Hot Pitcher Advantages to Watch your hot Fantasy Baseball Week 3 2013 hot pitcher advantages that should prove of value to sports bettors as well and most certainly did during Week 2.

Last week, Tristan H. Cockcroft of ESPN noted how starting pitchers expected to go up against the St. Louis Cardinals have struggled in their careers.  As such, recommended betting on the Cards over the entire week.  While Monday looked like one of the most promising days for St. Louis, that turned out to be the only loss.  From there, the Cardinals went 3-0, easily resulting in a profit for anyone who stood by the team throughout. 

Watch David Price of the Tampa Bay Rays scheduled to pitch against the Baltimore Orioles on Thursday April 18.

Cockcroft writes:

Panicky David Price owners need look no further than his track record against the division-rival Baltimore Orioles for solace; he tossed a quality start against them just this month (April 2). In six career starts at Baltimore's Camden Yards, Price has three wins, four quality starts, a 2.54 ERA and a 1.15 WHIP, with current Orioles a combined .230/.276/.326 hitting against him with a 26 percent strikeout rate.

Tampa Bay was one game behind Baltimore as of this writing.  Bettors as well as Fantasy players should mark their calendar and decide whether to bet on the Rays and Price on Thursday.

The Arizona Diamondbacks have Ian Kennedy forecasted to start on April 19 against Colorado.  He has three quality starts, 3.19 ERA and 1.39 WHIP in five career games in Denver.

The Dodgers starting pitchers have enjoyed great success against San Diego and that includes Monday's scheduled start for Chad Billingsly, who has eight wins, 10 quality starts, a 2.71 ERA and 1.15 WHIP in 14 starts against the Padres the past four seasons combined.  He’ll start Monday for LA. 

Clayton Kershaw is scheduled to face the Padres on Wednesday.  He has eight wins, 11 quality starts, a 2.28 ERA and 1.16 WHIP in 17 career starts against San Diego.  The Dodgers and Kershaw might be worth the high price we anticipate being posted on this game for sports bettors enjoyed a strong Week 2 with its MLB picks as part of the new Betting Baseball – The Hot Sheet series.  After going 1-2 Monday, G911 went on to go 7-0 the remainder of the week.
