Monday Service Plays

Re: Monday Service Plays

WUNDERDOG

MLB

Game: Philadelphia at Cincinnati
Pick: Philadelphia -145 (moneyline)

Cole Hamels has nothing but good memories of pitching in Cincinnati. He made his major league debut here back in '06 and pitched five innings for 0 runs, one hit while striking out seven hitters. He came back last year and tossed a complete game gem: five hits and 15 punch-outs. His Cincinnati tally is now 14 innings, six hits and 22ks for a slim 0.71 ERA. The Reds really struggled against LHP last season and consequently, they saw a lot of them. While they played just about .500 against RHP, they were just 25-40 against southpaws. The Reds were just 12-22 in Arroyo's starts last season and the Reds were even worse with Arroyo on the mound facing a LHP where they finished with just a 3-7 record. Hamels has a very positive mindset to call on pitching here, and the Reds have done nothing with him and struggle big time against LHP, and win just 35% of the time with Arroyo on the hill. We'll back the Phillies on the road here.

Re: Monday Service Plays

JEFF SCOTT 6-1 last week

Atlanta/ Colorado OVER 10: The Over is 12-4-1 in Cooks last 17 home starts with the total set at 9.0-10.5 and 16-5 the in Rockies last 21 home games vs. a team with a road winning % of less than .400, while the Over is 16-5-2 in the last 23 meetings between these teams. Glavive has had some success vs the Rockies in the past, but his last 2 trips to the Mile High city were not memorable as he allowed Colorado to score 10 earned runs in just 12 innings of work. Aaron Cook has really struggled vs Atlanta as he has a 7.14 ERA in his last 4 starts vs them. Cook will be taking on a Braves squad that is averaging 7.6 rpg through their last 5 games. Colorado has been waiting for their bats to wake up and this may be the game it happens. I see plenty of runs tonight.

Re: Monday Service Plays

Ted Sevransky

GAME: Florida Marlins @ Washington Nationals
PICK: Over

The Marlins have been one of the few consistent ‘Over’ teams in the first week of MLB action, with a 5-1 mark to the Over in their first six games. The primary culprit has been a spotty pitching staff ‘ both the starters and the bullpen are struggling mightily early on. Marlins starter Andrew Miller has been a part of the problem, not the solution to it. Miller struggled as a Tiger rookie last year, and he was awful in his 2008 debut, failing to make it out of the fifth inning against the Mets. Facing a Nationals lineup that has a better chance than most to hit lefties, we can expect Miller’s troubles to continue here. And let’s not forget that Florida’s bullpen threw 13.1 innings of work in their just concluded three game set in Pittsburgh, not exactly the freshest unit as they take the field tonight.

The Nationals offense was stymied yesterday by Kyle Lohse and the Cardinals bullpen behind him, but that was the exception, not the rule, for Washington so far this season. The Nats had scored 27 runs in their previous five games before yesterday’s shutout, and should have plenty of opportunities against Miller tonight. But don’t expect another outing from Tim Redding like we saw in his first start of the season, seven innings of one hit shutout baseball. The most consistent thing about Redding’s MLB career has been it’s inconsistency from one start to the next, unable to follow up quality performances with similar quality efforts. And the Marlins have been hitting righties (and righties only) to start the season, entering tonight’s game hitting more than 100 points better against right handers than against lefties. With game time temperatures in the upper 50’s, look for the Nats and Marlins to enjoy a high scoring ballgame at the Nationals new stadium, getting up and over the total.

Take the Over

Alex Smart

San Diego Padres -112

The San Francisco Giants , now without Barry Bonds, no longer , look like a contender and will in my humble opinion, very lucky if they get to the .500 mark this season. The Giants offense, has scored only 12 runs , along with 2 Homers in 6 games to open their season, and are off a 7-0 loss yesterday to the Brewers in the finale of a series that saw them get out scored 25-8. With four-time Cy Young Award winner Gary Maddux taking to the hill for visiting Padres today, the Giants offensive woes look to continue. It must be noted that Maddux is 5-0 with a 2.83 ERA in nine starts vs the Giants , and went 2-0 with a 1.86 ERA, last year , and has posted a 2.72 ERA in winning his last six starts at AT & T Park. With that said, look for the Giants, suffering to continue here this afternoon, as the Padres push forward with a run that has seen them win 11 of the 12 meetings in this series ! Play on the Padres

Priceless Picks

1 Unit on Chicago White Sox -153 (listing Vazquez)

Last night's dominant performance against Detroit gives the Sox tons of confidence as they return home to face the Twins tonight.  The Twins are 1-4 in the last 5 meetings in Chicago.  The White Sox are 4-1 in Vazquez's last 5 starts vs. the Twins, 5-1 in Vazquez's last 6 starts as a favorite, and 9-2 in Vazquez's last 11 starts with 4 days of rest.  The Twins are 8-20 in their last 28 games as a road underdog and 8-22 in their last 30 vs. a team with a winning record.  Pound the South Siders.

Tom Freese

Atlanta at Colorado

Colorado is not hitting scoring just 10 runs total in six games. The Rockies are 7-1 UNDER after allowing 5 or more runs in their last game and they are 11-5-3 UNDER in the last 19 starts made by Aaron Cook if they scored two or less runs in their last game. Atlanta starter Tom Glavine is 8-1 UNDER his last 9 road starts vs. losing teams. The Braves are 8-3 UNDER their last 11 games vs. righties and Glavine is 5-2 UNDER his last 7 starts vs. the Rockies. PLAY ON 'UNDER' (Cook vs. Glavine)

Re: Monday Service Plays

Larry Ness

Kansas vs  Memphis

I've been anticipating the Tigers to stumble since the Sweet 16 but it not only hasn't happened but the team has dominated on its way to the championship game. First it was 92-74 over Michigan State, then 85-67 over Texas and Saturday UCLA fell, 78-63. The 6-7 Douglas-Roberts and freshman PG Rose have simple 'destroyed' the competition. Both have been too big (and too GOOD!) for their opponents' perimeter people to handle, as Roberts has scored 25, 25 and 28 points, with Rose netting 27, 21 and 25. In the three wins, Memphis has embarrassed three All-American point guards, MSU's Neitzel was held to 2-of-8 FGs, Texas' Augustin made just 4-of-18 and UCLA's Collison made just 1-of-9 shots. Memphis entered the tourney with a FT percentage of just under 60 percent but has gone 26-of-35, 30-of-36 and 20-of-23 in its last three wins, which is 80.6 percent. Is there any stopping the Tigers? The team's lone loss came at home to Tennessee (66-62) back on Feb 23, one which wasn't decided until the final seconds. Memphis was just 8-of-17 from the free-throw line in that game, costing them. Now Kansas comes in on a 12-game winning streak and off an 84-66 rout of North Carolina. A 25-2 first-half Jayhawk run opened a 40-12 lead over the Tar Heels and while Carolina made its expected second-half comeback, as soon as the Tar Heels got close, Kansas opened it back up. Kansas has the athletes to match Memphis on the perimeter with Rush, Chalmers, Robinson and Collins. At 6-6, Rush can match up with Douglas-Roberts. The 6-9 Arthur (12.6-6.2) and the 6-9 Jackson (11.3-6.6) are active and athletic inside and will be a solid test for Memphis' two 6-9 dynamos, Dorsey (6.9-9.7) and Dozier (9.1-6.7). Also,  6-11 freshman Aldrich gave the Jayhawks eight points and seven rebounds in 17 minutes vs North Carolina, while 6-11 senior Kaun chipped in 22 points and 13 rebounds in wins over Villanova and Davidson the weekend before. I just have a "feeling" it's Kansas' time. Memphis is now 38-1, surpassing Illinois ('05). Duke ('99), UNLV ('87) and Duke ('86) for the most wins in a single season in NCAA history. Those fours teams all won 37 games but NONE won the championship during their 37-win seasons. Fittingly, this is the 20-year anniversary of Kansas' last title, when Danny Manning led the Jayhawks (coached by Larry Brown), to an 83-79 win over Oklahoma. Kansas may just be CBB's "most complete team" and if I wasn't 0-4 ATS in Memphis games this tourney (lost with them once, lost against them three times), I'd be making a bigger play on the Jayhawks. As is, I'll "stick with my gut" but make Kansas a smaller play. Take the points with the Jayhawks.

Re: Monday Service Plays

Ferrall

Baltimore +107 on ML over Mariners--I'm on Daniel Cabrera over Carlos Silva. The Orioles have won 4 straight. He's 5-1 in 8 starts vs. Seattle in his career. He struggled badly in his first start of the season though. Silva is 1-4 lifetime vs. Orioles, but won his first start of this season already in a 4-1 win against Texas.

WASHINGTON -135 on ML over Marlins--Tim Redding is 3-0 in five career starts vs. Florida. He ends the Nats four game losing skid after opening the season 3-0. Andrew Miller got pounded by the Mets in his first start in a 13-0 loss

Re: Monday Service Plays

DR Bob Sports

Kansas (+2) over Memphis
These teams are similar in that they both possess an excess of long and athletic players that can run the floor and defend. The key to this game will probably be outside shooting, as I don't expect either team to penetrate as well as they normally do. Kansas has been the better team this season using all games for each team, but the Jayhawks were relatively better against mediocre and bad teams, whom they beat by more than expected. My math favors Kansas using all games for each team with all starters playing, but using only games played against quality teams favors Memphis by 1 point, which I consider to be the fair line in this game. Kansas is a better outside shooting team than the Tigers, which I think will be a key factor in this game, so I don't mind leaning with the Jayhawks as an underdog in this game given that this contest is basically a toss-up. My math predicts 147 total points, which is too close the actual over/under to have an opinion on the total. I'll lean slightly with Kansas at +1 1/2 or more.

Kansas +2 over Memphis
This is going to be a good one. Memphis has great individual players and are more exciting to watch then the globetrotters. Kansas bench is as deep as it gets and their defense is outstanding. Both teams breezed thru the final four and were impressive. I just cant get over how Kansas destroyed UNC in the first half. Memphis took care of UCLA, but the Bruins had it coming to them for a while with a lot of sloppy play in the tourney. The public is all over Memphis which makes me like this pick even more. Kansas has a better defense and will not run out of gas. The Jayhawks will put together a group effort and be this years champs.

John Ryan

Tampa Bay Devil Rays vs. New York Yankees    
Play: Total:UNDER

Ai Simulator 3* graded play UNDER TB/NYY - AiS shows a 67% probability that 10 or fewer runs will be scored in this game. Supporting this graded play is a system that has produced a record of 36-9 for 80% since 2002. Play under with all teams where the total is 10 or higher and is terrible speed team averaging 0.35 or less SB's/game on the season and after a combined score of 3 runs or less.

BlackMagicSports

1 Unit on Arizona Diamondbacks -139
(Listing Haren and Loaiza)

Dan Haren gets the nod tonight against the washed-up Esteban Loaiza.  Haren did everything the could to pick up a win in is first start of the season, allowing just 4 hits in 6 innings against Cincinnati.  Loaiza went 1-4 with a 8.34 ERA in five starts with the Dodgers last season after being claimed off waivers from Oakland in August.  He is over the hill and shouldn�t be in this Dodgers� starting rotation.  Loaiza is 0-4 when starting against Arizona with an ERA of 6.16 and a WHIP of 1.658.  Haren won his only start of his career against the Dodgers, allowing just 1 earned run on 6 hits.  Arizona gets a big lead early and holds on with their solid bullpen late.  Cash in with Arizona as the favorite.

1* on Colorado Rockies -123
(List Glavine and Cook)

Colorado has been in a bit of a slump to start the season at the plate.  This Rockies� team has too good of a lineup to stay in the dumps for too long.  We predict the Rockies to bust out of their slump tonight against veteran Tom Glavine.  Glavine has been knocked around in his last 2 starts in Colorado.  He has allowed 17 hits, 6 walks and 10 earned runs in just 12 innings, both Braves� losses.  Colorado is 36-19 (+22.3 Units) against the money line vs. an overused bullpen that pitches more than 3.2 innings per game over the last 2 seasons.  The Braves� have really worked their bullpen to start the season.  This will be a big factor tonight once the Rockies knock Glavine out of the game early.  Take Colorado here.
