Jeff Alexander Sports

1 Unit on San Diego Padres -142 (Listing Maddux and Rodriguez)

Houston is 2-13 against the money line in road games revenging a loss where it scored 1 run or less over the last 2 seasons and 14-32 against the money line in road games after a loss over the last 2 seasons period.  The Padres are 55-31 against the money line against NL Central opponents over the last 3 seasons.  San Diego has taken it to Houston in each of the first two games of this series and I don't see things shaping up any differently here tonight.  Rodriguez really struggled away from home last season.  Don't be surprised if he gets knocked out early in this one.  Take the Padres.

TIP OF THE DAY 

CBI Finals: Tulsa Golden Hurricane vs. Bradley Braves

Prediction: Bradley Braves

Current Line: -5 Over/Under: 141

Reason: The Tulsa Golden Hurricane and the Bradley Braves will both be gunning for a victory on Wednesday when they meet at Carver Arena in Game 2 of the CBI Championship Series. Oddsmakers currently have the Braves listed as 5-point favorites versus the Golden Hurricane, while the game's total is sitting at 141. Jerome Jordan had 18 points and 13 rebounds to lead Tulsa past Bradley 73-68 in Game 1 of the Championship Series on Monday night. Tulsa covered as 3.5-point favorites as the teams played under the 142-point total listed by sportsbooks in that contest. Jeremy Crouch led the way for Bradley with 16 points in Game 1. Team records: Tulsa: 24-13 SU, 19-12-1 ATS Bradley: 20-16 SU, 18-15-1 ATS Tulsa most recently: When playing on Wednesday are 5-5 After playing Bradley are 2-1 After a win are 7-3 Bradley most recently: When playing on Wednesday are 4-6 After playing Tulsa are 2-1 After a loss are 4-6 A few trends to consider: Tulsa is 8-1 SU in its last 9 games The total has gone OVER in 9 of Tulsa's last 13 games on the road Tulsa is 5-11 SU in its last 16 games on the road Bradley is 8-1 SU in its last 9 games at home The total has gone OVER in 5 of Bradley's last 6 games at home Bradley is 6-2 ATS in its last 8 games at home Bradley is 12-6 SU in its last 18 games

Re: Wednesday Service Plays

DOC'S

Chicago White Sox @ Cleveland Indians
PICK: Over

REASON FOR PICK: The Tribe came out swinging in game one of this series scoring 10 runs, but unfortunately their pitching was not much better as they allowed eight runners to cross the plate. Five home runs were hit in that contest and now the teams get their chance to swing against the No. 2 starters. Expect another how scoring contest and we will not worry if Cleveland can collect on this big number and just cash in with the total.

Re: Wednesday Service Plays

MATT FARGO

Los Angeles Clippers @ Seattle SuperSonics
PICK: Seattle SuperSonics

REASON FOR PICK: I’ve used Seattle three times in its first four games of this road trip, going 2-1 thus far against the number. The Sonics are clearly a disappointment this year but they are still playing hard and those are the teams you want to back during the final stages of the season if they have no shot at the playoffs. One bad quarter doomed Seattle on Sunday against Sacramento but it should bounce back here against a team that started slow, never recovered and packed it in long ago.

The Clippers were supposed to be a solid team in the Western Conference but when Elton Brand hurt his Achilles in August, it was a bad sign. Los Angeles started the season with four straight wins but a 2-11 run knocked the wind out and the Clippers never recovered. It has been an absolutely dreadful run as they have gone 3-19 over their last 22 games. This includes a 1-10 run on the road with the lone win coming in Miami by just a point. The 10 road losses have been by an average of 15.5 ppg.

Taking Seattle in the role of the favorite might seem a little daunting but the Sonics are favored for a reason. Injuries continue to pile up on the Clippers as Chris Kaman is the latest casualty and he will miss the remainder of the season. In all, Kaman has been sidelined for 18 games with the Clippers going 2-16 without him. The return of Elton Brand is the talk of the team but the anticipated return is not going to happen until Thursday against Sacramento. Cuttino Mobley is hurting but will hobble around.

Seattle has actually been favored five times this season, going 4-1 ATS in those games so putting down the chalk is not so scary after all. The Clippers have won just nine road games all season long and the offense has been pretty anemic with the injuries taking place. That is the best news for Seattle who gave up an average of 114.3 ppg in March and 12 times this season the Sonics have allowed 120 points or more. They have allowed just 101 ppg during this homestand and the defense will have enough tonight to get it done. Play Seattle Supersonics 1 Unit

Re: Wednesday Service Plays

DAVID MALINSKY 4*

Kansas City Royals @ Detroit
PICK: Over 

Now that the marketplace has has created those “9’s” for us to work with in this one, it is time to step in. While it is not exactly a spring day in Detroit, with the first pitch expected to be at around 46 degrees, the sun will be shining, and that does make a difference in this temperature range. We will let the numbers do the rest.

It is not a secret that we will be looking to find spots to play the Tigers Over this season - the offensive lineup is the best in the game, and while they lose a little with Brandon Inge batting instead of Curtis Granderson, that is made up defensively with the limited range of the former in CF. That matters on a day in which Kenny Rogers takes the mound be cause Rogers is going to pitch to contact, and that will put the inexperience of Inge in CF into play. We can not expect Rogers to be going very deeply into games this season, which puts that weak Tiger bullpen into play, and note that this is also not a great matchup for Rogers. While he can still finesse power hitters into over-swinging, the Royals do not mind slapping the ball the other way and bring the right approach against him. Over the past two seasons he has only worked to a 2-3/5.12 against Kansas City, and as he declines he is not a prime candidate to turn that around.

Brian Bannister provides the other aspect of this value equation. He is getting a lot of market respect because of a solid 12-9/3.87 base in his debut with the Royals LY, but when we go inside the numbers we are much less impressed. He struck out only 77 batters in 165 innings, but got his ERA to an impressive level because of something that is not likely to repeat - opposing hitters succeeded at only a .264 BABIP (“batting average on balls in play”) LY. That is far below league average, and represents a pitcher being as much lucky as good. We can at least give Bannister some benefit of the doubt in terms of mound smarts, which can lead to opposing hitters jumping out at borderline pitches and making weak contact, but that turns around against him here - this is not only a good offensive lineup that he is facing, but also one loaded with veteran hitters that he will have a most difficult time fooling.

At “9” we do not need an offensive showcase - if each team gets to four runs we can not lose. That is not asking all that much for two offenses that will make solid contact against the starters that they are facing, and with neither bullpen causing any major fear.

Scott Ferrall

MEMPHIS -5 to Knicks--New York is 0-13 on the road vs the West this yr. Memphis already neat NY at the Garden and they'll do it again at home. NY lost in OT Tues in Milwaukee and they'll run out of gas

Sonics -3 to Clippers--Can you imagine paying to see this game ? Seattle beat the Clips by 7 the last time they played at Key. Sonics 5-3 as a favorite and Clips 14-45 as a dog

WIZARDS -6.5 to Bucks--Washington blows out Bucks here in DC. Bucks won in OT last night at home--traveled--and will suck tonight. Bucks have lost 8 straight on road. Wiz have won 5 of 6 at home

Re: Wednesday Service Plays

Priceless Picks

1 Unit on Bradley -4.5

I like Bradley to come back and even this series up tonight at home.  Bradley is 12-2 ATS when playing against a team with a winning record after 15 or more games this season, 7-1 ATS versus good defensive teams - shooting pct defense of <=42% after 15+ games this season, and 8-1 ATS versus good teams - outscoring their opponents by 4+ points/game after 15+ games this season.  Bradley has been solid on its home floor this season at 12-6 while Tulsa has struggled on the road with a 7-11 record.  Take the Braves at home tonight.

Re: Wednesday Service Plays

Michael Cannon

10 Dime

PIRATES (With Gorzelanny and Jurrjens as listed pitchers)

Take the Pirates for the win over the Braves tonight.

The Bucs will send one of their better pitchers to the hill tonight in Tom Gorzelanny.

The left-hander was 14-10 with a 3.88 ERA in his first full season as a starter last year. The fact he was able to record 14 wins with a woeful Pirates team is a good indication of how talented he is.

With the way the Pirates swung the bats on Monday, Gorzo figures to get a lot of run support tonight.

The Braves will counter with rookie Jair Jurrjens and I’m not convinced he will shut the Pirates down tonight. Jurrjens pitches to contact which will give the Bucs a chance to pick up where they left off Monday night, when they scored 12 runs on 17 hits.

This is a good price for the Pirates who have the advantage in the pitching matchup, even on the road.

Take the Bucs for the win.


5 Dime

DIAMONDBACKS

Take the Diamondbacks for the road win over the Reds.

Arizona will start newly acquired Dan Haren and he should be a great addition to the Diamondbacks staff.

The right-hander went 15-9 with a 3.07 ERA in 34 starts for the A’s last year and he could improve on those numbers playing in the National League this year.

Cincinnati will counter with Bronson Arroyo and he stumbled to a 9-15 record last year after a successful first season with the Reds in 2006.

A lot of people are picking the Reds to contend in the NL Central this year, but Arizona is the better team and has the better pitcher going tonight.

Take the Diamondbacks as the small favorite as they grab the road win.


JAZZ

Take the Jazz as the home chalk tonight over the Timberwolves.

Utah is in payback mode for Minnesota’s 110-103 home win over the Jazz on Sunday.

Jazz head coach Jerry Sloan was not pleased with his team’s sloppy performance, which included 18 turnovers and numerous defensive breakdowns that allowed the Timberwolves to shoot 53 percent from the floor.

The revenge angle worked between these two earlier in the season, when Utah avenged a road loss to Minnesota with a 105-76 blowout at Salt Lake City on March 5.

The Jazz are 24-11 ATS in their last 35 games as a home chalk, while Minnesota is just 4-9 ATS in its last 13 against the NBA Northwest.

Lay the points with the Jazz as they grab the home win and cover.

EZ WINNERS

1 STAR: (917) KANSAS CITY (+$169) over Detroit
(Listing Bannister and Rogers)
(Risking $110 to win $169)

Detroit's Kenny Rogers missed most of last season due to injuries. He did make two starts last year against Kansas City with very little success posting a 0-2 record with a 5.84 ERA. How much does he have left in the tank at age 43? Bannister is a good young pitcher and was 2-1 with a 2.55 ERA against the Tigers last year as a rookie. Lets see if the improved Royals can pull off another one here.


1 STAR: (901) MILWAUKEE (+$127) over Chicago
(Listing Suppan and Lilly)
(Risking $100 to win $127)
