The LA Angels will use starting pitcher Ervin Santana. Ervin Santana has pitched well so far this season. Ervin Santana is a Perfect 3-0 with a 2.26 ERA. We see Ervin Santana having another solid start today.

The Detroit Tigers will use starting pitcher Nate Robertson. Nate Robertson has struggled so far this season. In fact, Nate Robertson has a 7.48 ERA on the season. We see Nate Robertson once again giving up many runs today.

Game: Oakland Athletics vs. Seattle Mariners

Plays On: Oakland Athletics +105

Game Analyses: The Oakland Athletics are in a great spot tonight as they take on the Seattle Mariners.

The Oakland Athletics will be lead by Dana Eveland. Dana Eveland has pitched very well so far this season. In fact, Dana Eveland has a 1.90 ERA on the season. To say the least, Dana Eveland should be able to hold the Seattle Mariners to scoring very few runs.

The Seattle Mariners will be lead by Miguel Batista. Miguel Batista has struggled so far this season. In fact, Miguel Batista has a 4.38 ERA on the season. We see Miguel Batista giving up many runs today.

We don't mind the fact that the Oakland Athletics will be on the road. That's because the Oakland Athletics have played solid baseball on the road. In fact, the Oakland Athletics are 6-2 in their last 8 road games.

Take the Oakland Athletics!

Play on: LA Angels over Detroit

No doubt the Tigers have regained offensive form, especially with Granderson (lead-off homer last night) back in the lineup to formulate run production at the top of the order. The Tigers have won four straight, but still are below the winning marker of a .500 season at 10-13. The Angels (14-9) are tied for first in the division with the pesky A's, but more important the west coast club is a major 8-4 on the road with a current reality streak of 8 wins in their last 11 games. RHP Santana (3-0) of LA has a solid 0.96 WHIP and his team mates have supported the hurler throughout the early going. Lefty Robertson of Detroit, however, is on down cycle in the early season with poor location up.Lifetime the hurler has never defeated LA (0-4, 8.91 ERA).Support the hot roadie this evening.

Re: Friday Service Plays

Carlo Campanella

Game: Detroit Pistons at Philadelphia 76ers
Prediction: under

Reason: This series is tied up 1-1 after Detroit split their two home games with Philadelphia. The Total also split, 1 Over and 1 Under, as they head to Philadelphia for Game # 3 on Friday. With this being a pivotal tie breaking game that both teams need to gain a series advantage, expect a slow paced, defensive battle, especially as we find DETROIT going Under in 10 STRAIGHT road games when a Playoff series is tied.

7* Play On UNDER

Re: Friday Service Plays

Bryan Leonard

Chicago Cubs @ Washington Nationals
PICK: Chicago Cubs

While we normally emphasize pitching in our analysis, it's hitting that gives us a huge edge tonight. Simply put the Cubs are far superior to the Nationals on offense and the line isn't reflecting the disparity. Chicago has been especially good against left-handed starters scoring a whopping 6.46 runs per game including hitting for a .310 average. Washington has scored just 3.61 runs per game vs righties while hitting just .232. Washington is just 1-10 in their last 11 games vs right-handed starters.

The Cubs send former closer Ryan Dempster to the hill with a perfect 6-0 career mark vs the Nationals. Last year in limited duty he held Washington to a .182 slugging percentage. Odalis Perez posted ERA's of 5.57 and 6.83 the past seasons. Thus far in four starts with Washington he has held the opposition to a 3.38 ERA. Most of the credit has to go to a ground ball to fly ball ratio of 3 to 1, well above his career marks. Once Perez gets up in the strike zone he can be hit hard and we would rather trust a career of information than four starts from this 30 year old lefty.

Chicago has taken 6 of the last 7 meetings in this series and the Cubs have something Washington lacks, a consistent offensive threat. We lay the cheap number with the far superior team with a pitching matchup that should be considered a wash.

PLAY CHICAGO CUBS

The Mavericks are 34-7 at home and have taken the last five against the Hornets in Dallas, 4-1 ATS. Go with Dallas to get back in this series tonight in Game 3 at American Airlines Center. The home team in this series has covered the spread in the last 6 meetings.

Atlanta Braves (11-11) at New York Mets (11-10)

New York has lost four of five and will send Mike Pelfrey to the hill. The right-hander had a bad outing in his last start on Sunday, allowing four runs and 10 hits over five innings in a 5-4 defeat to the Phillies. He is 1-1 with a 4.15 ERA in three appearances against Braves, including the two starts. Atlanta has won six of their last eight games and counters with Jair Jurrjens. The right-hander has pitched impressively and is 2-2 with a 3.20 ERA in four stars this season. He has never faced the Mets.

Let's go with the Mets tonight at Shea Stadium to grab their fourth straight win at home. New York has won six of their last eight home games and five of Pelfreys last 7 starts. Meanwhile, the Braves have dropped nine of its last 12 road games

New York Mets - 140

Sports Gambling Hotline

NY Yankees -120 at CLEVELAND 

Tonight we like a pitcher's duel between Andy Pettitte, and Paul Byrd as the Yankees and Indians do battle in what we see as a low-scoring contest.

Pettitte's last 3 starts have all come on the road, and the southpaw has allowed just 4 earned runs over 21 innings of work for a 1.74 road ERA this season.

Byrd has been getting his act in gear after a shaky start, as the righty has gone 13 innings his last 2 starts, while allowing just 1 earned run to score.

New York has played UNDER the total in 8 of their 13 road games this season, while Cleveland has played LOW in 4 of their last 6 games to date.

Last year during the regular season, these teams played 2 of the 3 meetings at Cleveland UNDER the posted price, and we see them playing LOW again this evening.

Play on the UNDER

Re: Friday Service Plays

Drew Gordon

Toronto at KANSAS CITY -105

Both of these teams are struggling at the plate, but if oddsmakers want to give me Zach Grieke, at home, at this price, I'll take it with a smile. Guys, Greike has been the Royals best pitcher, and has the numbers to back it, going 3-0 with a lockdown 1.24 ERA in 4 starts this season! In his only home start, he dominated the Yankees vaunted batting order, pitching 8 scoreless inning en route to the 4-0 Royals win! This is not the pitcher the Blue Jays lineup wants to see after struggling badly against Tampa Bay in their last series.

You can't say the same about AJ Burnett, who despite pitching well against the Royals last season, is anything but a sure thing tonight. He got his first win since April 2nd in his last start, but overall has been below average this season, going 2-1 with an ugly 6.85 ERA. The fact he walked 6 batters in his last one has to open a few eyes, and while the Royals are no offensive juggernaut, they're much better against righties, batting .265 on the year.

For all the talk about the Royals struggles at the plate, the Blue Jays are even worse off, batting .240 as a team over their last 10 games, including just .237 against righties... And it won't get any easier against Greike in this one!

Bottom line, despite losing 7 straight, there's no question Greike gives the Royals their best chance to snap their losing streak tonight, and I say they take full advantage. Burnett has struggled with inconsistency in the past, and tonight will be no different. Also, the fact the Blue Jays batting order couldn't hit a beach ball right now cannot be ignored. Royals roll!

Take Kansas City behind Greike over Toronto and Burnett in this MLB match up.

3* KANSAS CITY


San Antonio at PHOENIX -6½

Needless to say this game is an absolute "must-win" for the Suns, and I expect they'll respond accordingly tonight. I know its tough after watching the first two games of this series to lay this many point with the Suns, but the truth is, the Spurs weren't nearly as good on the road this season, and the numbers back my claim: 22-19 SU & just 15-26 ATS away! But let's dig a little deeper...

We saw in the first half of Game 2 that this Suns team is capable of scoring on this San Antonio offense at will, dropping 61 points on them. However, the Spurs clamped down on defense after that, allowing only 11 3rd quarter points by Nash and company. The change in venue should help the Suns maintain their energy levels, as they average 112 ppg on 50% shooting at home this season. Not only that, but let's not forget the Suns went 30-11 SU in Phoenix, including winning their only home game (with O'Neal in the lineup) 94-87 back on March 9th!

Finally, one of the main reasons the Suns offense fell asleep in the second half of Game 2 was their reserves tightened up in the hostile AT&T Center. This time around, expect players like Barbosa (0 of 7 for 0 points Game 2) & Diaw (4 of 8 just 9 points) to really step up in the friendly confines of home. Stoudemire, Nash, and O'Neal couldn't have played much better, and if they can get some consistent production off the bench, they can win this game going away.

Bottom line, look for the Suns to step up to the plate and deliver in this "must-win" situation at home tonight against the Spurs. Go down 0-3 to a team like San Antonio and you might as well start making vacation plans, and the Suns know this... Expect their most spirited effort of the season tonight.

Take Phoenix comfortably over San Antonio in Game 3 of this Western Conference Playoffs First Round series.

2* PHOENIX

San Antonio at PHEONIX 

NBA playoff total play tonight as I like another OVER involving the Spurs.

Thus far, the first two games of this playoff series with the Suns have both easily eclipsed the posted price. That is kind of unusual, as during the regular season, the team's played UNDER in all four meetings.

Dating back to the regular season, San Antonio has played OVER the total now in 5 straight games, while Phoenix has played HIGH in 4 of their last 7 games.

For the year at home, the Suns have gone OVER in 22 of their 43 games, and with Phoenix trailing 2-0, look for the Suns to try an force an uptempo which is better-suited for them to get a "W" tonight.

Faster pace = more points, and the G-Man is calling for our third straight OVER in the series.

Re: Friday Service Plays

Chip Chirimbes

LA ANGELS

On Saturday, Santana gave up one run, three hits, walked none and struck out a season-high eight in eight innings of a 4-1 win over Seattle. Santana is once again showing he can dominate after going 7-14 with a 5.76 ERA and being briefly demoted to the minor leagues in 2007. The right-hander has posted a 3.46 ERA in winning both of his road starts in 2008 after going 1-10 with a 8.87 ERA in 14 starts away from Angel Stadium last season. Santana was tagged for eight runs and seven hits in 3 2-3 innings of a 12-0 loss at Comerica Park on May 24, his only start against the Tigers last season. He is 0-2 with a 15.26 ERA in two career starts at Detroit, compared to 2-0 with a 0.64 ERA in two home starts versus the Tigers. Detroit counters with Nate Robertson (0-2, 7.48), who is once again looking for his first win. Robertson gave up five runs and eight hits in five innings of a 5-3 loss to Toronto on Sunday. Over his four starts, the left-hander has yielded 29 hits and 18 runs in 21 2-3 innings. Robertson has also struggled against Los Angeles in his career, going 0-4 with a 8.91 ERA in seven starts. In his only outing against the Angels last season on July 27, Robertson was tagged for eight runs and 10 hits in 5 2-3 innings of an 11-6 loss. Los Angeles is coming off a 7-5 win over Boston on Thursday to take two of three at Fenway Park

Re: Friday Service Plays

Alex Smart

Los Angeles Dodgers -139

Reason: The Rockies starting pitcher Ubaldo Jimenez tonight has got the tools to be a major contributor in his teams pitching rotation , but his vast inexperience, continues to hinder him. He has a lot of maturing to do, and I expect it will continually come back to torch him, until he gets the innings he needs to be a force in the big show. He gave up 5 walks last time out, in just over 5 innings of work, and last year when he faced the Dodgers here in Chez Ravine, the righty got roughed up 5 runs in 4 innings, and I will not be surprised by a repeat performance. Hiroki Kuroda , the Dodgers hurler , has been very consistent in 3 outings , and when hes been hit hard, pulls up his sleeves, an gets tougher, stranding base runners in key spots. Unlike Jiminez, this guy, is very mature, and calm under pressure. Bottom line: Im leaning on the Dodgers to end a 8 game losing streak in this series, against a Colorado team , that looks like their suffering a World Series hang over, with a below 500 record, and offense that ranks them 10th in the NL, and a pitching staff that ranks 12th in ERA average. Play on the Dodgers

Re: Friday Service Plays

LT Profits

New York Rangers +130

We picked the New York Rangers to reach the Stanley Cup Finals before these playoffs started, so for our prediction to hold true, they have to beat the Pittsburgh Penguins at least once on the road in this series. Well, there is no time like the present.

The Rangers have allowed the fewest goals in the Eastern Conference this season, permitting just 2.32 goals per game. They have taken a page out of the rival New Jersey Devils’ book this year, becoming more defensive oriented and playing a neutral zone trap, with any offensive opportunities being generated by that defense. Sure, the end result is that they are only scoring 2.60 goals per game themselves, but that is fine when you allow two goals or less a majority of the time. It certainly helps to have Henrik Lundqvist and his 2.24 GAA and .913 save percentage between the pipes.

Now the Penguins are the two seed in the East, but they actually lost the season series to the Rangers 5-3 this year. Furthermore, while Pittsburgh averaged 3.00 goals per game vs. the entire league, they were stifled by the Rangers trap, averaging just a total of 17 goals in the eight meetings. They were held to two goals or less in five of those encounters and to exactly three goals in two others.

Finally, the Rangers have been great underdogs lately, going a lucrative 8-3 the last 11 times they have been cast in this role. Look for their defense to lead them to another upset win here.

Pick: Rangers +130


Dallas Mavericks -5.0 

Well, all three teams that were down 0-2 in their respective series have all won and covered easily in Game 3 so far this season, and we look for the Dallas Mavericks to continue that pattern tonight vs. the New Orleans Hornets.

Desperation is usually a great motivator in the NBA Playoffs, and teams returning home down 0-2 have traditionally done very well. The Mavericks have been a great home team all year going 34-7 straight up in this building, and while they are just 17-20-4 against the spread here, that is usually because they are asked to cover much bigger spreads than this one. The fact is that their average home winning margin of +8.9 points would be more than good enough to cover this number.

Now the Hornets may be the best road team in the NBA, as they were an amazing 26-15 SU 24-15-2 ATS away from home. However, they had no success in two visits to Dallas this season, losing by 13 and nine points respectively while failing to cover on either occasion. In fact, the home team is now 6-0 both SU and ATS in the last six head-to-head meetings between these clubs.

Thus, we look for a rather comfortable Dallas victory tonight as the Mavericks get themselves back in this series.

Pick: Mavericks -5

1 Unit on St. Louis Cardinals -125
(listing Looper)

At 8-4 this season, the Cards have been next to unstoppable on their home field.  We'll take them here with one of their best hurlers on the hill.  First off, the Astros are 1-4 in the last 5 meetings and 9-19 in the last 28 meetings in St. Louis.  The Cardinals are 4-1 in Looper's last 5 starts vs. the Astros, 8-2 in Looper's last 10 starts as a favorite, and 6-0 in Looper's last 6 home starts with the total set at 9.0-10.5.  The Cardinals are 10-4 in their last 14 vs. the National League Central and 21-8 in their last 29 games as a home favorite.  The last thorn in Houston's side here is that it is just  2-8 in its last 10 road games vs. a team with a home winning % of greater than .600.  Take the Red Birds.
