Thursday Service Plays

Re: Thursday Service Plays

Priceless Picks

1 Unit on Detroit Tigers +129
(listing Robertson and Wakefield)

The Tigers finally broke into the win column yesterday.  Now that they have that monkey off their back, I look for them to relax and start playing some high-caliber baseball.  The Red Sox are struggling in the early going also, just 1-4 in their last 5 games.  They are also just 1-4 in Wakefield's last 5 starts.  Wake is a pitcher who is going to give up some runs and the Red Sox bats are not yet ready to support him adequately.  The Tigers are 4-1 in Robertson's last 5 starts with 5 days of rest.  I look for a well rested Robertson to pitch with confidence today coming off a team win.  Take the Tigers showing nice value.

1 Unit on Toronto Blue Jays - 142
(listing Marcum and Eveland)

The A's have struggled on the road against righties and they are up against a good young one tonight.  That's why I'm risking a little juice here.  The Athletics are 3-11 in their last 14 road games vs. a right-handed starter, 7-18 in their last 25 games vs. a right-handed starter period, 6-13 in their last 19 road games, and 4-10 in their last 14 vs. American League East.  The Blue Jays crush lefties and they will get an opportunity to do just that tonight against Eveland.  The Blue Jays are 26-7 in their last 33 home games vs. a left-handed starter, 22-7 in their last 29 home games vs. a team with a winning record, 9-4 in Marcum's last 13 starts, and 6-2 in Marcum's last 8 starts vs. a team with a winning record.  Take the Jays.

Nick Parsons

Texas Rangers Money Line (-) vs Baltimore
(GAME TWO of the Doubleheader)

One of the keys in making money over the long course of a baseball season is finding value. Value often appears in places where youd least expect it and tonight we have one of those situations. Adam Loewen is a young southpaw that certainly is still trying to adjust to pitching at this level. He gets the ball for the Orioles tonight and his career ERA after 29 games (and 26 starts) is still over a five! Loewen struggled in his first start with too many walks and too many long balls. He just doesnt appear comfortable on the mound yet with this mechanics. Loewen wont be pitching in the comforts of home tonight either. Instead the southpaw will be pitching at Arlington and in his career starts away from home he has an ugly 6.97 ERA! Walks and overall command issues have been a big issue for Loewen on the road. Look for Loewen to get hit hard here and then it will be time to put the Orioles bullpen to an early test. Loewen didnt last five innings in his first start this season and we dont expect him to here either! So far, the Baltimore bullpen has been one of the biggest surprises in the league based on its phenomenal success. However, it is still early and we certainly dont expect this to continue. Tonight we project the bullpen to be called upon early as the Rangers bats come to life at home. That segways into the value here as the Rangers simply are not as bad as the 3-4 record theyve accumulated so far this season while the Orioles certainly arent going to maintain their 6-1 pace. Note that prior to Tuesdays 8-1 beating, the Rangers losses had been fairly tight as they had come by a combined 7 run margin. As for the three wins, those have come by a combined 12 run margin. The Rangers had scored 22 runs in their last three games before Tuesdays awful effort at the plate. However, facing a young southpaw with some honed skills (like Burres Tuesday) is much different than facing a still struggling southpaw (like Loewen today). As long as the rain stays away from the park here the Rangers should win this one handily as the Texas offense comes back to life, just like it did in two of the Rangers last three games before Tuesdays loss. Not only will the Rangers get some solid run production here but they also should get a strong start from southpaw Kason Gabbard. Despite a poor spring, Gabbard came out and pitched very well in his first outing of the 2008 regular season! He faced the potent Angels lineup in Los Angeles and pitched seven scoreless innings! Also, Gabbard has gone 1-0 with a 2.53 ERA in his two career outings against the Orioles. In his three career starts at the Ballpark in Arlington, Gabbard has held opponents to just a .217 batting average! Yes, hes young but Gabbard already shows a lot of poise. He works fast, throws strikes, and changes speeds very well. Look for more of the same on Thursday evening.

GINA

Chicago Cubs (5-3) at Pittsburgh Pirates (3-5)
(L) Rich Hill (0-0) vs. (R) Matt Morris (0-0)

Chicago has won the last five meetings versus Pittsburgh and Cubs' left-hander Rich Hill is 2-1 with a 3.62 ERA against the Pirates in five career starts. Go with the Cubs to take a three-game sweep of the Pirates. Pittsburgh has dropped its last five games at PNC Park and right-hander Matt Morris was awful in his last start against the Marlins, allowing eight hits and four runs over five innings.

Chicago Cubs - 135

Re: Thursday Service Plays

MR A'S

St. Louis Cardinals (7-2) at San Francisco Giants (3-6)
(R) Adam Wainwright (1-0) vs. (R) Kevin Correia (0-1)

Home Record: St. Louis 5-1 - San Francisco 2-1
Road Record: St. Louis 2-1 - San Francisco 1-5

St. Louis' Adam Wainwright was inpressive in his start against Washington on Saturday . The right-hander allowed two runs on eight hits over eight innings, with four strikeouts and one walk, in a 5-4 win against the Nationals. He never started against the Giants but faced the Giants twice in relief.

San Francisco's Kevin Correia allowed four runs on six hits in a 5-4 loss against Milwaukee on Saturday. The righ-hander is 0-1 with a 5.14 ERA in seven career appearances, including one start versus St. Louis.

St. Louis has won seven of their last 8 games, but is just 1-4 in its last five versus San Francisco. Look for the hot Cardinals to continue their hot streak against the cold bats of the Giants.

St. Louis Cardinals - 135

Re: Thursday Service Plays

Dave Malinsky 4*

Detroit Tigers @ Boston Red Sox
PICK: Under

We have been watching this one slowly climb all day, and now that we can play Under 11 at a fair price it is time to pull the trigger, in a game in which the market is projecting far more than should be called for from these offenses right now.

The Tigers finally managed to get a win yesterday, but it was anything but a break-out offensively. They only scored in one of the first seven innings, that being a four-run outburst vs. Jon Lester in the 4th that was as much a result as his own wildness (two of the runners that scored had walked) than their own swings. And when they broke it open late, it was because Terry Francona had gone to the bottom of his bullpen rotation in David Aardsma, Bryan Corney, Julian Tavarez and Javier Lopez in an “audition” setting - one of them will have to be sent down later this week when Mike Timlin is activated. Only Edgar Renteria had more than one hit on the evening, and now they have to adjust to the knuckler of Tim Wakefield, despite only seeing him for seven innings in all of 2007. And behind Wakefield it will be the Okajima/Papelbon duo ready to go, after sitting out last night, instead of the lower rungs of the Boston pen.

But the offensive equation does not just fail for Detroit. The Red Sox have been very slow to get going as well, and this is not their break-out spot either. With Mike Lowell sidelined they are forced to add a left-handed bat to the order in Sean Casey, despite facing lefty Nate Robertson, and with Wakefield pitching it also means that the bat of Jason Varitek is replaced with that of Kevin Cash. And while the .091 of David Ortiz is going to end at some point, Robertson is hardly his favorite guy to face - he sits at an ugly 3-19 lifetime, with no home runs, vs. the Tiger left-hander.

They are calling for a slugfest here that can not be justified with the form of these two lineups.

Yourwinningpicks

BEST BET: St. Louis (-130) OVER SAN FRANCISCO (120): Adam Wainwright takes the hill for the Cardinals and as the de facto ace of the team, has the decided edge against the inexperienced Kevin Correia for SF. Giants are also 3-11 in their last 14 against lefties and their offense is already the worst in the majors.

STRONG OPINION: Atlanta (-120) OVER COLORADO ROCKIES: Colorado is coming in with three straight wins while the Braves are off three straight losses. Time for a rebound as Bobby Cox's crew sends out ace Tim Hudson to face Rockies ace Jeff Francis. Atlanta plays well behind Hudson as they are 14-6 in his last 20 starts and he has been nearly unhittable this season. A ground ball pitcher, Hudson wont be affected much in the thin air. Francis on the other hand had been pitching batting practice and more of the same should be in store here.

STRONG OPINION: PITTSBURGH PIRATES (120) OVER Chicago Cubs (-130): The underdog is a live play as they are trying to avoid a three game home sweep against the Cubs and the motivation factor here is always a nice money play which hit at 61 percent last season. Ride the Pirates to stave off the embaressing run.
