Saturday Service Plays

Re: Saturday Service Plays

Evan Altemus
San Antonio Spurs vs. New Orleans Hornets
Pick: New Orleans Hornets

New Orleans comes into this game with a tremendous amount of confidence. They soundly defeated Dallas in the first round, and now they face a San Antonio team that they have had a tremendous amount of success against this season. The first thing to consider when looking at the Hornets is their youth. They are a very young, emotional, but talented team. I look for them to play with a lot of intensity in this game, and they will not be overwhelmed by the Spurs aging veterans. I expect this series to go six or seven games, but this game will belong to the Hornets. They won the last two out of three games between these teams this season. They blew out the Spurs in both wins. I feel that San Antonio is somewhat over-rated, and New Orleans is a better overall team. However, their youth will come into play later in this series on the road. However, the Hornets will play with much more intensity than the Spurs and their younger, better talent will be the difference. New Orleans looked fantastic in all three home playoff games against Dallas, and they will soundly defeat the Spurs tonight.


Pittsburgh Pirates vs. Washington Nationals
Pick: Pittsburgh Pirates

Pittsburgh was able to pound Washington pitching last night, and they will do the same tonight. They hit much better against left handers, and they are facing Nationals lefty Matt Chico, who has really struggled this season. He has only lasted 13 innings in his last three starts, while giving up 16 runs. Pittsburgh is batting almost 30 percentage points better against lefties also. The Pirates send starter Paul Maholm to the mound, who has been their best starter this season. He has a 3.26 ERA and has allowed 1 run in his last two starts. He also pitched a complete game against Philadelphia in his last outing. They only team to hit him hard this season was Los Angeles, who crushes left handed pitching. He will have no problem handling the weak Nationals hitting though. Look for Maholm to dominate and the Pirates bats to smash Chico and the Nationals.


Los Angeles Dodgers vs. Colorado Rockies
Pick: Los Angeles Dodgers

Los Angeles has crushed left handed pitching this season, and now they face a very poor lefty, Jorge De La Rosa. He was completely pounded last year as a member of the Royals rotation, and the Dodgers will get to him early in this game. They are hitting well over .300 as a team against lefties. Esteban Loaiza gets the start for the Dodgers. He pitched very well against the Rockies in his first start of the season which was his last outing. He allowed them to only two runs and five hits in five innings of work. Overall Los Angeles has a much better bullpen than the Rockies. Bullpens will play a big part in this game. However, the Dodgers will be up by a substantial amount after the first few innings. I look for them to get an easy win here.


Baltimore Orioles vs. LAA Angels
Pick: Baltimore Orioles

Daniel Cabrera has been a big surprise for the Orioles this season. He has rebounded from a poor 2007. Cabrera has allowed two runs or less in his last four starts. Those starts have also come against good hitting teams both at home and on the road. He has allowed only two earned runs in his starts against Seattle, Chicago White Sox, and the New York Yankees. He also only allowed one earned run against Tampa Bay on the road. He has shown that he can pitch great games on the road against good teams. However, Jon Garland has had a horrendous season so far. He has been completely hammered both at home and on the road. Oakland, Texas, Seattle, and Boston have all hammered him. It appears that he is losing control of his best pitches. He has to rely on his team’s defense to get batters out. Baltimore has good enough hitters to capitalize on Garland’s poor control. I look for Cabrera to be too tough for the Angels and Garland. Look for an Orioles road win.


Detroit Tigers vs. Minnesota Twins
Pick: Minnesota Twins

Justin Verlander has had a very bad start to this season. His ERA is 6.50 and he has allowed five earned runs or more in four out of his six starts this season. His only good outing was against Texas at home when they were struggling to hit. Minnesota hits very well at home, and they have had success against Verlander before. They completely crushed him in both of his starts against them last season. The Twins are also hitting almost 60 percentage points higher against righties at home. Scott Baker pitched very well on the road against Detroit earlier in the season. In fact, the Tigers three runs all came from solo home runs, as Baker was able to keep them off the bases. He went seven innings in that game, only allowing five hits and striking out three batters. I look for Minnesota to come into this game with a lot of confidence after their win against the Tigers last night. Look for Minnesota to win this game as the underdog.


Tampa Bay Rays vs. Boston Red Sox
Pick: Under

Josh Beckett and Scott Shields are aces for their respective teams. They proved their talents against each other earlier in the season. Josh Beckett had his best outing of the season against Tampa Bay, holding them to only two runs, one earned, in seven innings of work. In that game, he struck out 13 batters, while only walking one hitter! He has also dominated Tampa Bay throughout his career. Scott Shields through a complete game against the Red Sox this season. He shut them out and only allowed two hits. I look for each of these pitchers to be very motivated for this game, as they will want to outduel the other. Because of that motivation they will both be performing at their peak level. In addition, each team has struggled to hit lately. I expect this game to be an outstanding pitchers duel. Look for a very low scoring game.

1 Unit on Cincinnati Reds +126
(listing Reyes and Belisle)

Belisle is the guy the Reds want to have on the mound today because of his toughness.  It comes as no surprise that the Reds are 5-0 in Belisle's last 5 road starts vs. a team with a losing record and 5-1 in Belisle's last 6 road starts period.  The Braves are just 3-7 in Reyes' last 10 starts, 2-5 in Reyes' last 7 starts vs. the National League Central, and 2-5 in Reyes' last 7 starts vs. a team with a losing record.  The Reds have won 6 of the last 8 meetings in this matchup and after being shutout yesterday, I expect them to come storming back tonight.

Re: Saturday Service Plays

MATT FARGO

The Mets took Game One last night in relatively easy fashion and there is no reason to buck them now. They are 4-1 over their last five games following a horrendous 1-5 run. It has obviously been a streaky year for New York and this is definitely the time for a big possible upswing. The offense got it going last night, pounding out 12 hits and it could be clicking at the right time in facing one of the best pitchers in baseball. Brandon Webb or not, this price is too good to pass up.

Arizona brings in the best record in baseball and there is not a whole of bad about this team right now. Similar to last night, the Diamondbacks need to be played against in spots and this is another one of those spots. Arizona has hit .245 or less in six of its last 10 games and over that stretch, it is hitting only .238. Pitching has been the strength all season but the Diamondbacks have allowed 20 runs over the last three games and six or more runs in five of their last nine games.

What can you say about Webb? He is pitching tremendous with a 6-0 record and a 1.80 ERA in his six starts. I hate to say that the start is flawed but it is slightly. Half of his starts have come against San Diego and San Francisco, the two lowest run producers in baseball while two others came against Colorado, the 6th worst, and the last against Cincinnati, the 8th worst. At Shea Stadium, Webb is 2-1 with a 0.31 ERA in four starts. In five home starts against the Mets, he is 0-5 with a 3.89 ERA.

Mike Pelfrey counters for the Mets and this is a good bounce back opportunity. His last two outings have been well below average having allowed nine runs and 19 hits in 10.1 innings. It could be a cause for concern but in his first two starts this season, he was dead on as he allowed just two runs in 12 innings. He faced Arizona once last season, allowing three runs in 5.1 innings and he picked up the loss despite a decent outing. He catches a cold Arizona offense that is hitting just .229 against righties over its last 10 games.

Re: Saturday Service Plays

Alex Smart

Game: Orlando Magic vs. Detroit Pistons
Prediction: Orlando Magic

Reason: I know Detroit is a great basketball team, but their opposition today, despite of being a young squad, are a bad matchup for the Motown crew. The Magic are every bit as athletic and versatile as the Pistons, and despite of lacking the experience of their opposition, have a coach in Van Gundy that can help them bridge the gap. Final notes & Key Trends: The road team is 16-4-3 ATS L/23 in this series.

Re: Saturday Service Plays

Drew Gordon

I can understand the temptation of siding with the underdog Spurs in this spot, but make no mistake, underestimate this Hornets team at your own risk, especially in their own building. We all remember their last meeting of the season, right? Back on March 12th, Paul and company crushed the Spurs by 25 points in New Orleans, leaving no doubt in my mind that they can hang with the defending champs.

But relying on past match ups is hardly foolproof, what makes the difference in this contest is, unlike the Suns, the Hornets actually play defense. Until now, Tony Parker has coasted his way thru the Playoffs, averaging almost 30 ppg and 7 assists against Phoenix. Parker's easy drives to the basket end in New Orleans tonight, as Paul is an excellent defender, and the Hornets bigmen know how to rotate to stop the penetration. New Orleans is allowing 94 ppg on just 40% shooting over their last 5 games, as compared to 100 ppg on 46% shooting for the Spurs... That's a considerable disparity (and don't tell me that Dallas is that much worse than Phoenix, because they're not).
Finally, the Hornets have the right personnel for the job, with Peja Stojakovic stretching the defense from beyond the arc, West pounding the ball down-low, and Chandler gobbling up rebounds & blocking shots. Granted, the Spurs are obviously no pushover, but they always beat up on the Suns, and their first TRUE test of the Playoffs comes tonight against a younger (aka more energy) and hungrier opponent, playing at home no less. (Note: the Hornets were 28-16 ATS at home this season, while the Spurs went just 16-27 ATS away!)

Bottom line, Spurs may win this series, but Game 1 belongs to the upstart Hornets, who've proven a lack of experience can be overcome with rock-solid defense, and the best point guard on the planet. Hornets protect their house, grabbing the cash in the process late Saturday night!

Take New Orleans over San Antonio in Game 1 of this Western Conference Playoff series.

2* NEW ORLEANS

Re: Saturday Service Plays

Nick Parsons Saturday NHL Pick!

Play ON the Philadelphia Flyers Money Line (+) @ Montreal

The Canadiens still have not held a lead in any game in this series. The Habs have no idea what its like to play with the lead against the Flyers as the only game they won in this series was Game One when they rallied to score in the final minute to force overtime where they went on to score the deciding goal. The point is that the Canadiens are fortunate they even have one win so far in this series as they simply cant even get a lead. A lot of this has to do with struggles for Canadiens netminder Carey Price and hes expected to be back in goal tonight after he did not play in Game Four. The Canadiens were hoping to create a spark by sitting Price but that strategy did not work and, as a result, Montreal is simply grasping at straws at this point. For the Habs to be favored by about 170 in this match-up is an absolute joke when you consider the puck has never once been dropped in a game in this series at a time when the Canadiens were winning the hockey game. The Habs are simply too weak in goal to get past the Flyers and Philadelphia continues to get rock solid production from goaltender Martin Biron. The Flyers netminder has a lot more NHL experience than his counterpart in this series. That makes Philly well worth the comeback price here to take a shot with them to close this series out as a good sized road dog!
