Thursday Service Plays

Re: Thursday Service Plays

John Fina

Selection: Utah/Dallas Over 199

Today we expect a high-scoring game as the Utah Jazz do battle with the Dallas Mavericks. One reason why we expect a high-scoring game is because both these teams have solid offenses. The Utah Jazz (on the road) are scoring an average of 104.3 points per game, while the Dallas Mavericks (at home) are scoring an average of 103.7 points per game. As you can see, both these teams have solid offenses that have the talent to score many points. In addition, these teams have a history of scoring many points in their meetings. In fact, the Over is 4-1 in the last 5 meetings between these teams. We expect to see another high-scoring game tonight! Take the Utah Jazz/Dallas Mavericks Over 199

Michael Cannon

Rangers and Orioles were postponed last night, but I see no reason to change my pick because of that, so let's stick with the Rangers today!

Can't trust Steve Trachsel as far as I can throw him.  I know he's had some success in an Oriole uniform, but his track record suggests he's ready for a collapse soon.

Texas will start Kason Gabbard, who had an outstanding season debut. The left-hander threw seven scoreless innings on the road against the Angels in Texas 11-6 win on Friday.  He's 1-0 with 2.53 ERA in two career games against Baltimore.

Take the Rangers as they grab the road win.

3* TEXAS

Today we go with another underdog as we back the Tigers in Boston against the Red Sox.

The Tigers finally broke through on Wednesday and got in the win column with a 7-2 victory over the Red Sox at Fenway Park. Now we're banking on them doing it again today.

Nate Robertson (0-0, 9.00 ERA) is on the hill for Detroit today after a shaky opening outing against the White Sox on Friday. he gave up five runs on seven hits in five innings in the Tigers' 8-5 home loss. He left with the game tied at 5-5.

Boston knuckleballer Tim Wakefield (0-0, 4.50) is on the hill and he allowed three runs on six hits in six innings of work in his first start of the season on Friday in Toronto. The last two times he faced the Tigers he took the loss, including last May when the Tigers got to him for five runs on nine hits in seven innings of a 7-2 loss in Fenway.

Robertson beat the Red Sox last July even though he didn't pitch well, giving up four runs on four hits in 6.1 innings of work in the 6-5 Detroit win.

The Tigers got some offense going Wednesday night and expect that to carry over to tonight. We're going to back the better pitcher and play the Tigers in this one with the plus-money on our side.

4* DETROIT

Tony Mathews

Matchup: Seattle Mariners vs. Tampa Bay Rays

Selection: Tampa Bay Rays -135

Explanation: We will side with the Tampa Bay Rays as they face-off against the Seattle Mariners in Thursday's MLB contest.

The Seattle Mariners will use starting pitcher Miguel Batista. In his first-start of the season, Miguel Batista pitched very poorly. Miguel Batista went only 5 innings while giving up 4 runs. We expect Miguel Batista to struggle once again today.

On the other hand, the Tampa Bay Rays will use starting pitcher Edwin Jackson. Edwin Jackson was very solid in his first-start of the season. In fact, Edwin Jackson went 6 innings while giving up only 1 single run. It's safe to expect another solid performance by Edwin Jackson today.

We will gladly side with the home team who will be sending to the mound the much better starting pitcher!

Take the Tampa Bay Rays -135

Re: Thursday Service Plays

John Ryan

Utah Jazz vs. Dallas Mavericks    
Play: Over     

Ai Simulator 3* graded play OVER Dallas/Utah. AiS shows a 72% probability that both teams will score 100 point s each and also a 74% probability that 200 or more points will be scored in this game. More or less a self fulfilling prophesy, but Utah is 30-5 OVER where both teams score 98 or more points in a game this season; 22-3 OVER where both teams score 98 or more points in a game this season. Point is that the AiS is projecting that both teams will score 100 or more points and that there is a foundation of support between the two teams supporting the OVER play. Dallas is a strong ball handling team and Utah is 33-19 OVER in road games versus good ball handling teams that are committing <=14 turnovers/game over the last 3 seasons. Take the OVER.

Royals +140 over New York Yankees

The Royals are a surprising 6-2, and they have allowed just two runs while taking the first two games of this series vs. the Yankees. With Andy Pettitte’s teams 4-13 in April, dog the Royals at home again.

The surprising Kansas City Royals look to complete the three-game sweep of the mighty New York Yankees tonight, and at this price at home, they seem like a nice investment to do just that.

The Royals are now 6-2 after taking the first two games of this series, and since they were a slight favorite in one of their losses, they are an amazing 6-1 in this underdog role, upsetting the Detroit Tigers three times, the Yankees twice and the Minnesota Twins once.

The Royals are hitting .270 as a team, and when you combined that with their sparkling 2.25 team ERA, it is easy to see why they are off to their hot start. For comparative purposes, the Yanks are batting just .244 with a 3.99 team ERA. Now today’s Royals pitcher, left-hander John Bale, had probably the worst outing of any Royals starter this year, but he should be helped by the fact that the Bronx Bombers are batting just .225 vs. southpaws in the early going. He also has the support of what has been an outstanding Kansas City bullpen so far, with a collective 0.67 ERA and 0.85 WHIP over 27 innings!

The 4-5 Yankees have simply not been hitting, scoring three runs or less seven of their nine games and a grand total of two runs over the first two games of this series. Also, their starter Andy Pettitte did not pitch well in his seasonal debut, allowing five runs and 10 baserunners in just five innings of a 6-3 loss to the Tampa Bay Rays. Unfortunately, slow starts are nothing new for Andy, as his teams are now 4-13 in his last 17 April outings.

We look for the Kansas City magic and for the lethargic Yankees play to continue for one more day with this nice underdog price tag on Kansas City.

Royals +140

Karl Garrett

Florida at WASHINGTON -130

Tonight in the National League, I am sticking with the Marlins-Nationals to once again play a high-scoring contest.

Last night it took a while for the bats to get cranking, but the hitters did indeed get it going, and the teams combined for 14 runs, and another OVER.

That makes both meetings this year in DC between the teams in the OVER column, and puts them on an overall OVER run of 15-4-1 the last 20 times these teams have faced each other in Washington!

For the season, the Marlins have played 4 straight OVERS, and are 7-1 for the season on the HIGH SIDE!

As for the Nats, they have landed OVER the closing price in 6 of 9 games this year.

Can't go against those numbers.

5* OVER

Play on: Washington (Perez)over Florida

The Nationals started the season 3-0, but have faltered in six straight as their pitching staff has collapsed. Add in some tough road losses, the D.C. contingent seems out of sync. Still, I'll back the Nats with Perez (2-1, 4.15 ERA vs. Florida)as the Marlins are 4-11 L15 after scoring 5+ plus runs. Lefty Hendrickson is 1-1 with a 6+ ERA vs. Washington over the last three season. Huge bounce back day for the suffering Nationals

Ross Benjamin

Minnesota (L.Hernandez) @ White Sox (Contreras)
Play On: Minnesota +125

Since the start of the 2005 season the Minnesota starting pitcher Livan Hernandez is 38-30 in his team starts as an underdog for a +17.75 wagering units. Hernandez has been sharp in his first 2 starts of 2008 posting a 1.00 WHIP while not walking anyone. The White Sox starter Jose Contreras has been the model of inconsistency over the last couple of seasons. He had a very shaky 2008 debut start allowing 10 hits, 4 earned runs, walking 4, and striking out just 2 in 5.0 innings. Play on the Minnesota Twins

Sports Gambling Hotline

Tonight in the NBA we think the scorer's table is going to be very, very busy in this Denver-Golden State meeting.

We are playing the OVER in this game, as both Denver and Golden State haven't yet met a shot they didn't like!

True, the last pair of series meetings have held UNDER the posted price, but we are staring at too many supporting numbers for an OVER play in this baby tonight.
Denver comes into Oaktown having eclipsed the posted price in 4 of their last 5 games, and 19 of their last 26 overall.

Golden State has played OVERS in 10 of their last 13 Thursday night affairs, and 10 of the last 14 meetings between the teams have also sailed OVER the posted price.

Have to look for the offense to put that ball through the hoop with regularity this evening.

Play on the OVER.

4* OVER

Re: Thursday Service Plays

Drew Gordon

While we should expect the Braves will be highly motivated to avoid the sweep here, doing against Jeff Francis may prove easier said than done. Yes, I know the Rockies southpaw is struggling a bit, but let's not get carried away, its still very early and we all know what he's capable of.

If Francis' last start against the Braves is any indication, we should expect a strong effort this afternoon, as back on August 3rd of last season, he limited Atlanta to 1 run on 6 hits over 6 innings, striking out 8! Braves offense did show signs of life yesterday, but it was Colorado's batting order that exploded for 12 runs on on 13 hits! That's bad news for Tim Hudson if you ask me.

Unlike Francis, Hudson started the season well, but all signs point to trouble today at Coors, where he's 0-2 with a ridiculous 13.00 ERA. In those 9 innings pitched in Colorado, he's allowed 13 runs on 19 hits, while walking 8 batters... Numbers like those are hard to ignore, especially after the Rockies efforts at the plate yesterday.
Bottom line, not only has Tim Hudson been awful at Coors, but under the circumstances, we're getting the Rockies at a bargain price. Much like the first two games of this series, expect a relatively close contest here, but in the end, the Rockies can and will get the W.

Take Colorado behind Francis over Altanta and Hudson in afternoon MLB action.

2* COLORADO

Utah Jazz @ Dallas Mavericks u199.5

It must be NBA Playoffs time, because both the Utah Jazz and the Dallas Mavericks have been stressing defense lately.

The Under is 4-1 in the last five Dallas games, with the Mavericks holding three of those opponents under 90 points and the run-and-gun Phoenix Suns to 98. In fact, the Mavs have looks more like the San Antonio Spurs defensively lately, uncharacteristically limiting those last five opponents to just 41.6 percent shooting from the floor.

As for the Jazz, all that they have done is hold their last two opponents in the 60s on a combined 51 for 140, 36.4 percent shooting. Most impressive is that fact that it was the normally potent New Orleans Hornets that the Jazz held to a season-low 66 points on Tuesday. We look for a third straight concerted defensive effort tonight, as Utah has yet to wrap up home court advantage in the first round despite already clinching their division.

Now the Mavericks may not be held below 70 tonight, but we still look for a safe Under here with this game being played in the 180s.

Jazz, Mavericks Under 199.5
