SUNDAY SERVICE PLAYS

Re: SUNDAY SERVICE PLAYS

Karl Garrett

I see no reason to buck what is going on in the Valley of the Sun right now, as Arizona enters play this Sunday having won 8 straight games, and the Diamondbacks have also won all 5 meetings against the Rockies in that stretch.

Looks to me like someone has someone's number early this season!

Go with the Snakes to complete the sweep at Chase Field today, as Gonzalez did work a solid 5 innings of 1 run ball against the Rockies his last time out in a no-decision.
Aaron Cook makes his first start of the year against an Arizona team that did reach him for 15 runs in 24 innings of work last year.

With it all humming right now for the D-Backs...hitting, pitching, and fielding, have to lay the home wood with Arizona to complete the sweep.

3* ARIZONA

Big Al Mcmordie

Game: Florida Marlins at Houston Astros
Prediction: Houston Astros

Reason: At 2:05pm ET our member selection is on the Houston Astros over the Florida Marlins. Just when you thought you'd seen every possible name for a baseball player, enter Marlins starting pitcher Burke Badenhop. The 25 year-old righthander who gets the call in this afternoon affair in Houston was part of the big deal that sent Miguel Cabrera and Dontrelle Willis to the Tigers during the offseason. Badenhop has put in his first major league work already this season (a hitless inning in relief against the Nationals) but other than that he has never pitched above the AA level at the minors. Judging from his minor league stats, Badenhop is definitely a control pitcher and doesn't throw very hard. He surrendered just 94 walks in over 400 innings pitched since 2005 and his strikeout totals are certainly nothing to write home about, even though the vast majority of his innings pitched were at the single 'A' level. Houston's pitching has not been very good, but one of the bright spots on the mound has been left-handed starter Wandy Rodriguez. Rodriguez pitched very well and was on the mound in two of his team's victories (against two very good major league clubs in St. Louis and San Diego). The first three series this year for Houston have been against the Padres, Cubs, and Cards, all tough competition. Rodriguez and his team are no doubt looking forward to today's home game against a team like Florida and a young, inexperienced rookie, something that should help get their sleeping bats going.

Take the Astros.

Stephen Nover

Florida Marlins @ Houston Astros
PICK: Houston Astros

REASON FOR PICK: The Florida Marlins have some talented young hitters. What they don't have is good fielding, the ability to get key hits with men in scoring position and an experienced, good starting pitching staff.

The latest not-ready-for-prime-time pitcher the Marlins are trotting out is 25-year-old Burke Badenhop, a guy who has thrown more than 400 innings of minor league ball. This is his major league starting debut.

How good is Badenhop? I'll put it to you this way: The Marlins decided to keep recently demoted Rick VandenHurk in the starting rotation rather than break camp with Badenhop as a starter. VandenHurk may have been the worst starting pitcher in the National League.

The Marlins have dropped six of their last eight games in Houston. They are expected to start Wes Helms at first instead of Mike Jacobs. That's a dropoff.

The key question is if the favorite price on Houston is justified with Wandy Rodriguez on the hill? It sure wouldn't be if Rodriguez were pitching in any place but Houston. He's 3-10 with a 6.41 ERA away from Houston since the start of last season.

But at home, Rodriguez is 6-3 with a 2.73 ERA since the beginning of 2007. It's hard to figure this kind of home/road dichotomy. It's not hard to figure that the price is right to lay in this matchup with Rodriguez at home. The Astros are 13-4 (76 percent) at home the past two seasons when Rodriguez has been the starter.

Gold Medal Club
   
New Jersey @ New York Rangers
PLAY ON NEW JERSEY +145

The Rangers have played very well on home ice this season going 25-16 and have a 2-0 series lead. But does this warrant this kind of line?

Playing in New York will not be a problem for New Jersey, in fact it may help loosen up those tight sticks. New Jersey can win anywhere, and under the veteran leadership of Marty Brodeur, look for the Devil's to get the win tonight as they know, its now or never, a loss and they are all but done. A desperate team getting this kind of value is a gift

Re: SUNDAY SERVICE PLAYS

Drew Gordon

Several things to like about the Raptors in this spot, but let's start with the Pistons below average play down the stretch. It not their fault, as they've already locked up the # 2 seed, and have absolutely nothing to play for in these final regular season games. In their last game, 4 of their 5 starters played 22 minutes or less, and despite some solid efforts off the bench, Toronto's starters can beat the Pistons reserves, plain and simple.

The Raptors, meanwhile, still have a lot to play for, namely avoiding the 7th seed and first round trip to the Palace. We all know Toronto hasn't won in 9 straight trips to Detroit, so avoiding the Pistons is high up on their priority list. Not only that, but you have to believe Toronto will be looking to snap that streak tonight, albeit against their reserves for the most part.

Finally, after some struggles in early April, it appears the Raptors are back on track after shellacking the Bucks and Nets in consecutive home wins. Toronto is averaging 106 ppg on 48% shooting over their last 5 games, thanks in large part to their two-headed point guard monster of Ford and Calderon (18 assists combined in their last one)!

Bottom line, the Pistons find themselves vulnerable against a motivated Raptors team, that hasn't tasted victory in Detroit since 2003. Look for Bosh and company to come out firing in this one, as they try everything in their power to avoid the dreaded 7th seed and a subsequent first round date with these very same Pistons. Raptors grab the cash at the Palace Sunday afternoon!

Small play on Toronto plus the points over Detroit in this NBA match up.

1* TORONTO

Take the large number of points and back the Miami Heat as they travel To Cleveland to take on the Cavaliers.

Everyone knows, including myself that the Heat threw the towel in on their season weeks ago, but at the same time 18 or so points is a lot to ask to cover in any NBA game.

Cleveland is 2-7 ATS in their  last nine overall, failing to grab the cash in seven of their last 10 games.  The Heat although have very few wins to show have managed to cover two straight and three of their last four overall.

Cleveland is currently averaging 96.9 ppg on the year, compared to Miami that is scoring an average of 91.5 ppg.  Only three points separate the two teams on the defensive end with Cleveland holding the advantage.

The numbers are to close in my opinion for a spread this large.  Play the points and the Heat as they will stay well within.

Re: SUNDAY SERVICE PLAYS

Tom Freese

Game: Orlando Magic at Chicago Bulls
Prediction: Orlando Magic

Reason: Orlando is 26-9-1 ATS off an ATS loss and they are 29-14-2 their last 45 road games. The Magic are 8-3 ATS when playing with one day of rest and are 24-13 ATS as favorites of 3.5 to 9.5 points. Chicago is in a 65% ATS Play Against System that says to go against home teams with revenge from a 20 point road loss vs. an opponent that is off a loss where they were a favorite. PLAY ON ORLANDO

Re: SUNDAY SERVICE PLAYS

Nick Parsons Sunday Forum Pick


Play ON San Jose Sharks $ line (-) @ Calgary

The Sharks are hell bent on getting back home ice edge in this series and they certainly dont want to wait around until Game 4 to get it. That means that they will hit the ice with plenty of energy tonight as they look to go up 2 games to 1 in this series. The big story in Game 2 was the unbelievable string of penalties that were called against the Flames. This upset Calgary Coach Mike Keenan and it certainly didnt sit well with the Flames players either. The problem for Calgary here is that the concern about officiating and what they can and cant do on the ice has definitely gotten into the heads of the Flames players! Calgary will be trying to bounce back at home but they were lucky that Thursdays result wasnt uglier. The Flames struggled to generate much offense and they allowed 27 shots on goal just in the second period alone. This penalty-filled Game 2 could lead to some tentative play from the Flames in Game 3 and the Sharks have momentum on their side after the 2-0 win Thursday. Evgeni Nabokov, as usual, looked fantastic between the pipes and he will come up with another strong game here. He already has six career playoff shutouts and Nabokov was an amazing 24-8 on the road this season with a miniscule 2.04 GAA. Hes simply one of the best in the game and, although Miikka Kiprusoff had his skills on full display in Thursdays tough Flames loss, Kipper cant do everything for this team! In other words, look for another tough game for the Flames in terms of an inability to generate much on offense. As for the Sharks, they will take much better advantage of their power play opportunities in this match-up as San Jose Coach Ron Wilson emphasized this after the Sharks certainly didnt execute this on Thursday as they did in their strong late season run. San Jose will take command of this series tonight as they have the Flames back on their heels!
