Saturday Service Plays

Re: Saturday Service Plays

Joel Tyson

Take the point or so and back the Lakers here today as they take on the Denver Nuggets in game three of this best of seven series.  After two Laker wins in L.A. the series now shifts to Denver.Denver has not yet figured out though that this is a best of seven basketball series, where the score on the scoreboard is what counts, not who wins the trash talking contest that they have been involved in over games one and two.The Nuggets have trashed talked Kobe Bryant to the maximum, and earned Allen Iverson a first game ejection. JR Smith decided it was his turn to get at the Laker superstar in game two, and Kobe responded by hanging 49 points and ten assists on the Nuggets.The Lakers have defeated this Nuggets team five straight times, and have done so by an average of 13.6 ppg.The Lakers have covered in 19 of their last 27 road games, and I fully expect them to do so once again today.  Play the Lakers to not only get the cover, but get the win as well.

5* LAKERS

Cincinnati Reds vs. San Francisco Giants
Play: San Francisco Giants   

I’m sorry but the wrong team is favored here. The Giants won another close game on Friday in the opener of this series to make it three straight wins. After starting the season 1-6, San Francisco has gone 10-7 since then as both the offense and the pitching has had their share of shining moments. Last night, it was another great pitching performance this time from Jonathan Sanchez. Take away a 1-4 mark against Arizona and the Giants are actually playing good with a 10-9 record against the rest of the league.

While the giants are surging, the Reds continue their swoon. After starting the season 6-4, Cincinnati has gone just 3-11 over its last 14 games and they once again find themselves as favorites. The Reds have scored four runs or fewer in 18 of their 24 games this season including seven of eight and making matters worse has been the pitching. Cincinnati has an ERA of 6.04 over its last 10 games from its starters and that includes two gems from Aaron Harang showing how bad the rest of the staff has been.

The Reds are hoping Matt Belisle can get things going from the bottom part of the rotation and I’m here to tell you he won’t. He made his first start of the season five days ago at home against the Dodgers and he allowed seven runs (five earned) on 12 hits in just four innings of work. He is replacing Josh Fogg and if this horrid pitching continues, another change will be needed. In eight games including two starts against the Giants, Belisle is 0-1 with a 6.60 ERA and 1.80 WHIP.

Kevin Correia is coming off a great performance last time out against Arizona but was handed the loss despite tossing his second quality start of the season. He allowed three runs in six innings but his offense was able to muster only two runs for him. His other quality outing came against the Cardinals as he allowed no runs in 7.2 innings at home. His effort after that was not good but that came against the Diamondbacks and this one is against a much worse team that Correia is 3-0 with a 2.65 ERA in three starts against. Play San Francisco Giants 1.5 Units

Karl Garrett

Three games in the books, and two of the three have landed UNDER the total, while Thursday's game in Utah just slipped OVER the posted price.

The G-Man likes the UNDER tonight, as Houston has now held UNDER the total in 6 of their last 8 games overall, and they have also stayed LOW in 7 of their last 9 Saturday contests.

The Jazz meanwhile have also gone UNDER in 7 of their last 9 Saturday games, and the way the baskets have been hard to come by, I have to expect those trends listed above to continue.

Nothing has been easy through the first three games, as neither team has come close to getting 100 points yet.

Until I see a break-out offensive showing, going to go UNDER the posted price in the Rockets-Jazz series.

2* UNDER

Bobby Maxwell

Today we're on the diamond in Tampa Bay as we play the plus-money Devil Rays hosting the Red Sox.

Edwin Jackson (2-2, 4.63 ERA) goes for the D'Rays against the Red Sox Clay Buchholz (1-1, 4.79 ERA).

Jackson opened the season with two stellar outings, allowing one run on seven hits in 14 innings in wins over the Yankees and Mariners. He's been touched up in the last two, giving up 11 runs on 11 hits in 9.1 innings. But this guy has been labeled a "prospect" for about 5 years now and it's time for him to step up and deliver.

This is his chance as he's got a spot in the rotation in Tampa Bay. He saw the Red Sox four times last season and had three solid outings and one horrible start. In hi slast three he didn't allow more than three earned runs and the D'Rays were 2-1 in those three.

Buchholz was good on Monday against Texas, blanking the Rangers on five hits in six innings of an 8-3 win. But his last road start he gave up seven runs on eight hits in 3.2 innings of a 15-9 beatdown at the hands of the Yankees.

Not saying the D'Rays are the Yankees, but they will get the plus-money winner in ths one. Play Tampa Bay.

3* TAMPA BAY

Re: Saturday Service Plays

Tony Mathews

Matchup: Colorado Rockies vs. Los Angeles Dodgers

Selection: Los Angeles Dodgers -1.5 Runs +115

Explanation: We will side with the Los Angeles Dodgers -1.5 Runs as they face-off against the Colorado Rockies in Saturday's MLB contest.

The Colorado Rockies will use starting pitcher Mark Redman. Mark Redman is having a bad season. In fact, Mark Redman has a 5.23 ERA on the season. In other words, the Los Angeles Dodgers should be able to score many runs off Mark Redman and the Colorado Rockies.

The Los Angeles Dodgers will use starting pitcher Brad Penny. Brad Penny has been pitching well so far this season. In fact, Brad Penny has a 2.67 ERA on the season. To say the least, we see the Colorado Rockies struggling to score runs tonight.

The Los Angeles Dodgers are 9-2 against the Colorado Rockies (when Brad Penny is the starting pitcher), and we see them getting another blowout win tonight!

Take the Los Angeles Dodgers -1.5 Runs

Re: Saturday Service Plays

Brian Marshall

Game: Chicago Cubs vs. Washington Nationals

Plays On: Chicago Cubs -1.5 Runs -110

Game Analyses: We see the Chicago Cubs getting a blowout win tonight against the Washington Nationals. With that said, we will lay 1.5 Runs with the Chicago Cubs on Saturday.

The Chicago Cubs will be lead by starting pitcher Carlos Zambrano. Carlos Zambrano has pitched very well so far this season. Carlos Zambrano is 3-1 with a 2.67 ERA. You can bet that Carlos Zambrano will have another great start today.

The Washington Nationals will be lead by starting pitcher Matt Chico. Matt Chico has struggled so far this season. Matt Chico is 0-4 with a 6.04 ERA. It's safe to say that Matt Chico will once again give up many runs today.

The Chicago Cubs are 6-1 in their last 7 meetings against the Washington Nationals, and should be able to get another blowout win tonight!

Take the Chicago Cubs -1.5 Runs

Re: Saturday Service Plays

Nick Parsons

Play ON the Chicago White Sox $ line (-) vs Baltimore @ (Game 1 of Doubleheader)

The Orioles still have a good looking record so far this season as theyve remained surprisingly consistent despite the fact that very little was expected of them coming into this season. However, despite going 6-4 in their last ten games their offense is a bit of a concern heading into this match-up with the White Sox. The Orioles have scored five runs or less in 13 of their last 18 games and theyre now dealing with a ChiSox club that has been enjoying some success thanks to their clutch hitting. When you look at the White Sox team batting average you will not be impressed but note that with runners in scoring position they are hitting better than any other team in the majors so far this season. Look for the White Sox offense to enjoy continued success this afternoon against Brian Burres. The Orioles southpaw has a 2-1 record and a 3.63 ERA but this is hiding some key numbers. Burres has a WHIP of 1.62 as walks continue to be a problem. The Orioles lefthander has more walks than strikeouts so far this season and keep in mind this is nothing new as last season he had a 1.70 WHIP. Burres also was just plain awful in his only career start against the White Sox. It came at US Cellular Field last season and the young hurler couldnt even make it out of the second inning in that one as he was clobbered. The ChiSox send John Danks to the mound and hes off to a phenomenal start this season. Hes 2-1 on the season with a 3.04 ERA and hes only getting hit at a .202 clip by the opposition. The White Sox lefthander had an awful start versus Minnesota earlier this season and that has skewed his numbers a bit or else his stats would be even more impressive. Note that Danks has allowed just one earned run on 10 hits in his other 20.1 innings of work this season! Thats certainly a very impressive three starts and another solid start should be on tap for the Danks today. With the Orioles offense spotty at best, the White Sox southpaw should enjoy success today and he has gone at least 6.2 innings in three of his four starts this year. That means little bullpen should be needed but also note that the ChiSox bullpen has been solid so far this season. All edges point to the White Sox here and thats why they are worth the home favorite price in this Game One match-up.

Re: Saturday Service Plays

ETHAN LAW


COL: LHP Mark Redman (2-1, 5.23) at LOS: RHP Brad Penny (3-2, 2.67)

I am going to keep this analysis much shorter then previous ones that have appeared on this forum, in the hope that I can get to a couple of games (with analysis) before the morning hits. As of this writing (2:44 a.m.) the Dodgers and Rockies are currently battling in a 7-7 game in the bottom of the 10th inning. Despite not knowing the result from Fridays game, what we do know is this game has a tremendous amount of value in the opening line. Incredibly, the odds makers opened this line, with Colorado as a +$160 road favorite! WOW! The true line in this contest should be in the neighborhood of +$135-140 so we know before we looking any further that are getting some serious value on the road underdog. Always a good start! And as I have stated to you in countless times, that all I need to make my selection. But since this might be one of the more difficult selections to swallow, I will go a bit further in the analysis. We always know that big market teams are often over-valued in comparison to small market teams, and we also know that when teams send their Aces against a team who is pitching their number 3 through 5 starters, we often also see inflated lines. Although thats a very rudimentary way to look at this, few people would dispute the validity of that theory. Tonight, the Dodgers will send their Ace in right-hander Brad Penny. I not going to waste anybodies time in trying to argue that Penny is not an elite pitcher, as I believe he is one of the best in the league. But the bigger pitcher is whether Penny is good enough to warrant being priced at this +$165 line. As you would imagine my answer to that question is no! So far this season, Penny is 3-2 so far this season. In the 3 wins he has allowed a total of one earned run, and in the two losses he has allowed 4 earned runs on each occasion. As a result, Pennys current totals (ERA of 2.67 and WHIP of 1.42) resemble last years totals. However, the consistency in which he has obtained them is not the same, which would leave us to believe that the Ace right-hander will be unable to achieve the same quality start percentage (hereinafter QS%) that he achieved last season. Before last seasons quality start percentage of 78%, Pennys previous three QS% in order from 2004 to 2006 were 58%, 55%, and 48%. This season there is a likelihood that Pennys QS% is once again somewhere in the 5060 percent range. If this happens, Penny, who has not been able to go 7 innings yet this season, may find it tough to repeat last seasons win total of 16. Moreover, Penny is giving up well over a hit an inning and he could very well struggle against this Colorado team that is an impressive 4-2 +$325 on the road against right-hander this season, with an offense that averages an impressive 5 runs per game. Those impressive stat is not a deviation as this is a Rockies team that was one of the very best against right-handers last season (70-49 +$3040 against right-handers in all settings), and they were an impressive +$1,515 in road/night games against right-handers (averaging 5.1 runs per game).

Colorado will counter of a right-hander of their own in Mark Redmen. Now granted, Redmen certainly does not come into this contest with number anywhere near that of Penny, but Redmen does have the disadvantage of playing in the unfriendly confines of Coors Field, while Penny gets to pitch in one of the biggest ballparks in the major leagues. Indeed, although Redmens 5.23 ERA looks unattractive, it should be pointed out that he is a much better pitcher than his stats indicate. In his last start against the Rockies, the right-hander struck out five and forced nine ground-ball outs. Unfortunately, we gave up four fly balls, but three were home runs. However, is he had pitched that exact game in Dodger stadium, those might not have gone out of the park. That is evidenced by Redmens road ERA of only 3.60 this season. Redmen should find success against this Dodgers team that comes into this contest at just 7-10 against right-handers in all settings this season, where their offense averages just over 4 runs per contest. It should also be noted that the Dodgers lost money in their home ballpark last season -$745. Turning to the technical side of things, I can confidently say that this selection is the absolute strongest (meaning Colorado has technical dominance over LA) that I have seen all season. Indeed, I uncovered 39 trends with a cover percentage of over 60% in favor of the Rockies in this situational setting, while uncovering only 4 in favor of the Dodgers! WOW. So highlights of those above reference trends is that Colorado is an impressive 33-20 +$1,920 against a starting pitcher (Penny) whose gives up 0.5 or less Home runs/start over the last 2 seasons; 40-21 +$2,420 against an overused bullpen that pitches more than 3.2 innings per game over the last 2 seasons; 16-6 +$1,500 against an NL starting pitcher whose ERA is 3.00 or better over the last 2 seasons and their average margin of victory is a staggering 1.8 runs per game! WOW. Given the above, we have not other choice but to take a shit at this absolute monster underdog!

Verdict: Colorado 5, Los Angeles 3

PLAY 1* UNIT (2%) ON COLORADO +$165

Always difficult to steal a 4th game on the road, but with guard Alston back in the lineup the early season negative match-ups are no longer. Critical too, is the poor 60% foul shooting by Utah and rebounding edge afforded Houston without Yao. These statistics tend to have a carry over effect. On the technical side, road team has been money in the bank carving out a nice 6-1 ATS edge L7 times out. The underdog in the series supports this mindset as the low post is 6-1 ATS of late. Granted the techs issue a Utah edge on their home floor over the last few years in this series, but Houston is 22-7 ATS off a SU win
