Tony Mathews

St. Louis Cardinals vs. Milwaukee Brewers

Selection: St. Louis Cardinals +115

Explanation: We will side with the St. Louis Cardinals as they face-off against the Milwaukee Brewers in Monday's MLB contest.

The St. Louis Cardinals will use starting pitcher Adam Wainwright. Adam Wainwright has been solid so far this season. In fact, Adam Wainwright has a 2.78 ERA on the season.

The Milwaukee Brewers will use starting pitcher Carlos Villanueva. Carlos Villanueva has struggled this season which is shown by his 6.19 ERA.

The St. Louis Cardinals have already shown us they can beat the Milwaukee Brewers. In fact, the St. Louis Cardinals are 9-3 in their last 12 meetings against the Milwaukee Brewers.

Take the St. Louis Cardinals +115

San Diego at Houston

Re: Monday Service Plays

Big Al Mcmordie

Game: Florida Marlins at Pittsburgh Pirates
Prediction: Florida Marlins

Reason: At 7:05pm ET our member selection is on the Florida Marlins over the Pittsburgh Pirates. This game will feature the two worst pitching staffs (according to team ERA) of the season so far in the NL. As of Saturday night, Pittsburgh was 15th in ERA at 5.26 runs. Not far ahead of them is Florida, with a team ERA or 5.09. Only one other team in the Majors has a team ERA above five runs (surprising it's the Tigers). But Florida's staff at least has a couple of pleasant surprises in the form of lefthanded starters Scott Olsen and Mark Hendrickson, slated to go to the mound tonight in this game at PNC Park. All Hendrickson has done this season is go 3-1 in his first three starts with an ERA of 3.97. He is one of the reasons that the Marlins have a very surprising winning record. And they have actually played very well on the road this year, losing only two games away from South Florida. My words cannot describe how horribly veteran righthander Matt Morris has pitched in '08. It's been like batting practice so far when he takes the mound as he has given up 26 hits in less than seventeen innings of work. Last year's strangest deadline trade (Morris from the Giants to the Pirates in exchange for Rajai Davis) is looking even stranger right now, as Morris (who's due to make an amazing $8.5 Million this year) has lost all three of his starts this season. Morris' teams have lost the four games he's started against Florida, going back to 2005 with the Cards. Take the Marlins.

Re: Monday Service Plays

Chris Copeland

St Louis Cardinals vs. Milwaukee Brewers
Play: Total:Under   

St Louis only managed two total runs the past two games and, today, is facing a pretty good home pitcher in Carlos Villanueva.

Wainwright's last outing was against the Brewers, where he went 7.2 IP and only allowed 1 ER, while striking out 6. I expect the same type of performance from Wainwright tonight and that tagged with the struggling Cards bats, should be enough to keep this game Under the posted total.

St Louis- 4 Milwaukee- 3

Locksmith Sports

1 Unit on Milwaukee Brewers -108
(listing Wainwright and Villanueva)

If there's ever a time to go against Wainwright, it's now.  The Cardinals are 0-5 in their last 5 Monday games, 4-12 in their last 16 games as a road underdog, 5-11 in their last 16 during game 1 of a series, and 0-4 in Wainwright's last 4 starts during game 1 of a series.  The Brewers are 40-18 in their last 58 home games vs. a team with a winning road record, 6-2 in their last 8 home games, and 5-2 in Villanueva's last 7 home starts.  Last Wednesday, Villanueva was crushed by St. Louis.I look for him to have his revenge tonight.

Scott Rickenbach

Boston Bruins @ Montreal Canadiens
PICK: Montreal Canadiens

REASON FOR PICK: Important Note: This line is too pricey to be a star rated pick but there absolutely is value with Montreal to win this series on their home ice Monday night. Our advice is to play this as a Free Pick tonight. You could consider using it with another big favorite in baseball that you have your sights set on as this NHL favorite combined with one MLB favorite could make for a nice payout!

The detailed analysis for this selection will be posted here by Noon ET. However, we get our plays up as early as possible for all you early players and so we post it first without the write-up. This way you can make your play early and beat the line moves. Please check back after Noon ET for the full details on this match-up.

1 Unit on Pittsburgh Pirates -105

After being dominated by the Cubs, I like the Pirates to bounce back at home tonight.  The Marlins usually don't show up in series openers, especially at the beginning of the week.  They are just 1-10 in their last 11 Monday games.  The Marlins are also just 5-12 in the last 17 meetings in Pittsburgh.  The Pirates are 5-1 in their last 6 home games following a road trip of 7 or more days, 8-2 in their last 10 games as a home favorite, and 10-3 in their last 13 games as a favorite period.Take the Bucs.

Re: Monday Service Plays

LEE KOSTROSKI

Detroit Tigers @ Toronto Blue Jays
PICK: Under

Although both teams appear to have great offenses on paper, the early season production from the lineups has been limited. This finale of a big four games series between American League squads with high expectations should play out much like the past two games with a low scoring, tight contest. Dating back to last season only one of the past seven meetings has played "over" and two pitchers with great early season resumes are on the mound tonight.

Armando Galarraga made a brilliant Tigers debut with a just one hit allowed in over six innings. Galarraga had six strikeouts but more importantly did not walk a single batter and most of the Jays will be unfamiliar with him. Galarraga has been a bright spot in a tough April for Detroit starters but offense has also been a big problem for the 6-13 Tigers. Detroit is hitting just .258 as a team and in eleven of 19 games this season Detroit has failed to produce more than four runs. Detroit has actually been shutout in four games this season and if not for a 3-game 30 run explosion early last week Detroit would have the worst offensive numbers in baseball.

Toronto has failed top five runs in a game on the current home stand and the Jays own a .247 team average at home in 2008. Shaun Marcum has made three quality starts for Toronto with just six earned runs allowed in nearly 21 innings. Marcum has 16 strikeouts in two starts at home this season and after solid results since moving into the rotation last season Marcum appears ready to enjoy a breakout season. Toronto's bullpen is also among the best in the American League with a 3.39 ERA and opponents hitting just .233 against Jays relievers.

Re: Monday Service Plays

Michael Cannon

20 Dime –

CAVALIERS

Take the Cavs minus the small number for the win over the Wizards in Game Two.

Cleveland did what it had to do to get the win and cover in Game One, and if it comes down to the wire tonight I have the utmost confidence that LeBron James will get it done.

It’s getting to the point where the Wizards have to be thinking they just can’t knock this team out of the playoffs. Washington carried a four-point lead into the fourth quarter, and then proceeded to shoot 4-of-20 from the field down the stretch, including 10 straight misses in the final 4:38.

Those kinds of things start to erode a team’s confidence and when the opponent has a player the caliber of James, bad things seem to happen to them at the most inopportune times.

The Cavaliers are 6-2 ATS in their last eight as a playoff favorite, while the Wizards are 1-5 ATS in their last six conference quarterfinal games (all against Cleveland) and 1-5 ATS in their last six after a SU loss.

Take the Cavs minus the small number as they grab the win and cover again.


5 Dime –

CUBS (With Zambrano as listed pitcher)

Take the Cubs as the home chalk tonight over the Mets.

The Cubs just got done sweeping the lowly Pirates, and the way they are swinging the bats right now means ace Carlos Zambrano probably won’t have to be at his best tonight to grab the win.

As it is, Zambrano has looked pretty good through his first four starts, going 2-1 with a 3.04 ERA while striking out 23 batters and walking only three in 26 2-3 innings.

The control aspect is the most impressive thing Zambrano has shown me so far, because if he’s able to keep from issuing the free passes he becomes a dominating pitcher who can work deep into the game.

The Mets will counter with John Maine, who is 0-2 with a 5.17 ERA in three career games against the Cubs. The right-hander has battled control issues so far this year, walking 12 batters in just 16 2-3 innings.

Zambrano is 3-1 with a 3.30 ERA in five career games against the Mets.

Take the Cubs for the home win over the Mets.


DODGERS (With Penny as listed pitcher)

Take the Dodgers as the road chalk tonight over the Reds.

Brad Penny gets the start for LA and he’s 6-0 with a 2.44 ERA in his last seven starts against the Reds, including four straight victories in Cincinnati.

The Reds will counter with Matt Belisle, who is scheduled to come off the DL Monday to make his first start of the year after being sidelined since March with a left forearm injury.

The right-hander was 8-9 with a 5.32 ERA in 30 starts last year and is 0-0 with a 13.50 ERA in five relief appearances against the Dodgers.

Take the Dodgers for the road win.

Re: Monday Service Plays

Nick Parsons Monday NHL Pick

Play ON the Philadelphia Flyers Money Line (-) vs Washington

As weve written previously about this series, it would be surprising to see the Flyers come up short as they simply were undervalued coming into this match-up and they appear to be the much more complete team. They are more well rounded than the Capitals. Washington came from a Southeast Division where they were the only team to make the playoffs while the Flyers came from an Atlantic Division where they were one of FOUR teams to make the postseason. The difference in level of competition is huge and should not be overlooked here. Philly has dominated for much of this series. After the Capitals came back from a 4-2 third period deficit in Game 1, the Flyers proceeded to win three straight games. So, what happened in Game 5 at Washington on Saturday? The Flyers simply went into it overconfident and it cost them the game. There will be no such feelings tonight as the Flyers are basically treating this as their elimination game too. They do not want to have to go back to Washington for Game 7. The Flyers feel that they must close the series out tonight. With their continued stifling defense against the Capitals Alexander Ovechkin, look for them to get another big home win tonight. They have the better defense and they will go back to the hard work that has seen them winning most of the little battles on the ice throughout this series. The only exceptions were the third period of Game 1 and then Game 5. Look for Game 6 to once again belong to the Flyers as they bounce right back and close this series out at home!

Re: Monday Service Plays

Ferringo

2.5-Unit Play. Take #955 Los Angeles Dodgers (-135) over Cincinnati
Both of these teams have sucked recently, especially the Dodgers. But the pitching matchup isn’t close in this one. Penny is 6-2 in his career against the Reds and 4-0 with a 2.00 ERA in four starts at the Great American Ballpark. Penny has been money in April throughout his career and his counterpart, Matt Belisle, is a stopgap. And he is 2-12 in his last 14 home starts. The Dodgers have won four straight Penny starts against the Reds, are 10-2 in the last 12 meetings overall, and are 5-2 in their last seven at Cincy. The N.L. West has been tooling on the N.L. Central in this early season. And even though the Dodgers suck, they get the nod in this one. L.A. is 43-21 in Penny’s last 64 starts (67.1 percent), 21-5 in his starts against a team with a losing record, and 13-3 in his starts against the N.L. Central. They need an effort out of him, and they will get it. The Dodgers will scratch out a few early runs and sweat this one out.

1.5-Unit Play. Take #952 Chicago Cubs (-130) over New York Mets
The Mets can be excused if they have somewhat of a letdown after their big series with the Phillies over the weekend. The Mets have won five of six, all divisional games, but now have to head to Wrigley to face the red-hot Cubbies. Carlos Zambrano is 3-1 with a 3.30 ERA against the Mets in his career, while John Maine was roughed up by the Cubs in 2007 (0-2, nine ER in 7.2 IP). The Mets are just 3-13 against right-handed starters and I think that Big Z keeps the momentum rolling for the Cubs.

1.5-Unit Play. Take #960 Houston (-135) over San Diego
The Astros are 43-15 in Roy Oswalt’s last 58 home games. That’s a 74-percent rate and that’s an automatic play at under -150. The Padres worked over the Astros in San Diego to open the season, but Houston has the edge on the hill in this one and that’s something they didn’t get in Petco. Justin Germano is a promising arm, but he is just 8-14 in his brief career and the Padres have lost nine straight games that he’s thrown in. San Diego is just 5-16 in his last 21 starts. Roy Oswalt is 7-2 in his career against San Diego with a 2.49 ERA. The Astros are 8-2 in his last 10 starts against the Dads and 4-1 in his last five home starts against them.

1-Unit Play. Take #966 Arizona (-1.5, +115) over San Francisco

Cincinnati is scoring only 4.1 runs per game overall this year and 3.9 runs per game at home this season. Penny has a 2.96 ERA in all starts this year. LA Dodgers are 10-2 overall vs Cincinnati last 3 years. Penny is 6-2 with a 3.14 ERA overall vs Cincinnati since 1997. We'll play LA Dodgers for 3 units tonight
