NATIONAL LEAGUE

N.Y. Mets (16-14) at L.A. Dodgers (18-14)

Dodgers rookie Hiroki Kuroda (1-2, 3.82 ERA) tries again for his first home win when he opposes Nelson Figueroa (2-1, 4.08) and the Mets in the middle game of a three-game series at Dodger Stadium.

Los Angeles continued its winning ways with Monday’s 5-1 victory over New York, improving to 9-1 in its last 10 and 11-3 in its last 13, including four straight home wins. The Dodgers’ offense has carried the club during this stretch, scoring five runs or more in 10 of the last 11 wins. In fact, Joe Torre’s squad has tallied eight or more 10 times in its last 14 victories.

New York has alternated wins and losses in its last six games, and they’re now two games under .500 on the highway (7-9), alternating victories and defeat in the last six as a visitor.

These teams split their 10-game series last year, but the Mets did win five of the last seven, including three of four in Los Angeles.

Kuroda tossed seven solid innings at Florida on Thursday afternoon, allowing three runs on five hits and no walks, but he didn’t factor in the decision as Los Angeles prevailed 5-3. The Japanese phenom has pitched at least six innings in five of his six starts, going 5 2/3 in his other outing.

Kuroda has a 6.00 ERA in two home starts (eight runs allowed in 16 innings), but he didn’t get a decision in either game, with the Dodgers going 1-1.

The Mets are 3-1 in Figueroa’s four starts this season and he hasn’t allowed more than three earned runs in any outing. His last start came April 27 when he gave up three runs on seven hits in 5 1/3 innings of a 6-3 home win over the Braves.

Figueroa is 0-1 with a 6.43 ERA in three games (one start) on the highway. Also, he’s 1-0 with a 5.40 ERA in two career starts against the Dodgers, though he hasn’t faced them since 2002 as a member of the Brewers.

The total has alternated in Kuroda’s first six big-league starts, with his last outing at Florida staying low, but the over is 2-0 in his two home games. Meanwhile, the under is 3-1 in Figueroa’s four starts this year.

The under is 5-1-1 the last seven times these teams have met, but the over is 7-3-1 in the last 10 meetings on the West Coast, even though Monday’s game stayed low. The over is also 4-2-1 in the Mets’ last seven overall, 14-8-1 in their last 23 road games and 17-10-2 in their last 29 on the road against right-handed starters. Meanwhile the Dodgers are on over runs of 9-4-1 overall, 7-2 at home and 5-1 at home against teams with a winning mark.

ATS ADVANTAGE: L.A. DODGERS


AMERICAN LEAGUE

Boston (21-13) at Detroit (14-19)

Red Sox veteran Tim Wakefield (2-1, 4.03) faces off against Detroit’s Nate Robertson (1-3, 6.82) for the second time in less than a month, as these A.L. rivals that are heading in opposite directions resume a three-game series at Comerica Park.

Boston survived a shaky start from Daisuke Matsuzaka and beat the Tigers 6-3 on Monday, the team’s fourth straight win and sixth victory in its last seven games. The Red Sox also snapped a three-game road losing skid, but are still just 7-8 on the highway this season.

Detroit has followed up a three-game winning streak with four straight losses, totaling three runs or fewer in three of the four defeats. The Tigers are also just 1-3 against Boston this season, though the home team is still 7-2 in the last nine meetings.

The Red Sox are on streaks of 6-0 on Tuesdays, 8-1 against left-handed starters, 7-1 on the road against lefties, 21-7 against A.L. Central teams, 41-17 versus losing teams and 9-3 in Wakefield’s last 12 starts against Detroit. Meanwhile, the Tigers are in funks of 11-23 in Robertson’s last 34 starts overall, 7-20 in his last 27 when pitching on four days’ rest and 2-6 in his last eight starts against Boston.

Wakefield got the best of Robertson back on April 10 in Boston, giving up two runs (one earned) on three hits and five walks over five innings, winning 12-6. In the loss, Robertson went 5 1/3 innings, allowing four runs on eight hits and two walks. Wakefield is now 14-10 with a 4.41 ERA in 33 games (21 starts) against Detroit, including 2-3 with a 5.08 ERA at Comerica Park, while Robertson is 2-4 with a 6.46 ERA against the Red Sox.

Wakefield has pitched well in his last two starts (three earned runs allowed in 13 innings), but Boston lost both games to Toronto (3-0 at home) and Tampa Bay (5-4 on the road). Wakefield has a 4.00 ERA in three quality starts on the road, but didn’t get a decision in any of those contests.

In his last start against the Yankees in New York, Robertson continued a disturbing season-long trend that has seen him give up four or five runs in all six starts, as he surrendered four runs in 5 2/3 innings, but it was good enough for an 8-4 victory. However, the Tigers are 1-2 in Robertson’s three home starts, with the southpaw going 0-1 with a 6.38 ERA.

The under is 3-1 in Wakefield’s last four outings and 7-3 in his last 10 starts against Detroit. Conversely, the over is 5-2 in Robertson’s last seven outings going back to the end of 2007 and 5-1 in his last six starts against Boston.

The under is 8-3-2 in the last 13 head-to-head matchups, 4-0 in Bonderman’s last four outings against the Sox and 4-1-1 in Bonderman’s six starts this season. The under is also 6-3-1 in Boston’s last 10. However, the over is 5-2-3 in the Tigers’ last 10 at home.

ATS ADVANTAGE: BOSTON


NBA PLAYOFFS

EASTERN CONFERENCE

(4) Cleveland (4-2 SU and ATS) at (1) Boston (4-3 SU and ATS)

Having survived a scare by finally disposing of the pesky Hawks, the Celtics now get the honor of facing of LeBron James and the defending Eastern Conference champion Cavaliers as these two tip off their best-of-7 conference semifinal series at TD Banknorth Garden.

Faced with the possibility of being on the wrong side of the biggest playoff upset in NBA history, the Celtics responded in a big way in Sunday’s Game 7 against Atlanta, pummeling the Hawks 99-65 and cashing as a 14½-point favorite. Boston, which has advanced to the second round of the postseason for the first time since 2003, won all four home games against Atlanta by margins of 23, 19, 25 and 29 points, easily covering as a 14½ or 15-point favorite in each contest. The Celtics are now on a 9-0 ATS run at home going back to the regular season.

For the third straight year, Cleveland eliminated Washington in the first round, this time needing six games to get the job done. In Friday’s elimination contest in Washington, LeBron James (27 points, 13 rebounds, 13 assists) recorded a triple-double in leading the Cavs to an easy 105-88 victory as a three-point road underdog. Cleveland went 2-1 SU and ATS in Washington, and is 4-2 SU and ATS in its last six on the highway.

The straight-up winner is 30-1 ATS in Boston’s last 31 games, including 12-0 ATS in the last 12. Meanwhile, the winner is 8-0 ATS in Cleveland’s last eight overall and 9-0 ATS in its last nine on the road.

These teams split their four meetings this year, with the host winning each game. However, the Cavs went 3-1 ATS, including cashing in both battles in Boston, losing 80-70 as a 13½-point underdog and 92-87 as a 9½-point pup. The home team is 5-0 in the last five head-to-head clashes (4-1 ATS), but Cleveland is 7-3-2 ATS in the last 12 meetings, including 4-1-2 ATS in its last seven visits to Boston.

Finally, in this rivalry, the underdog is on a 6-0-1 ATS roll.

Cleveland is just 1-7 ATS in its last eight games after a double-digit win and 3-8 ATS in its last 11 after three or more days off. However, the Cavs are on positive ATS streaks of 33-16 as a road underdog, 14-6 as a playoff underdog and 35-16-1 in road games against teams with a winning home record.

In addition to their current 9-0 ATS home streak, the Celtics are on pointspread runs of 23-8 overall, 16-6 against the Eastern Conference, 37-17-1 after a spread-cover, 14-4 after a double-digit win, 18-7 as a favorite, 9-2 when playing on one day of rest, 10-4 on Tuesdays and 6-1 against the Central Division.

For the Cavs, the under is on streaks of 9-3 overall, 14-5 as a playoff underdog, 4-0 against the Atlantic Division and 10-1 in conference semifinal playoff games. Meanwhile, the under is 6-2 in Boston’s last eight home games, 4-1 in its last five against the Central Division and 2-0 in two home meetings against Cleveland this year. But the over is 4-1 in the Celtics’ last five overall, 11-5 in their last 16 on Tuesdays and 19-7-1 in Cleveland’s last 27 on Tuesdays.

ATS ADVANTAGE: UNDER

Re: Tuesday Service Plays

Vernon Croy

Tampa Bay Rays vs. Toronto Blue Jays   
Play: Toronto Blue Jays   

1 Unit, Take Toronto ML, The Jays have one of the best pitching staffs in all of MLB right now and I look for A.J. Burnett (3-2, 4.82 ERA) to have another solid start after allowing just 3 hits against a potent Red Sox line-up in his last outing. Burnett has averaged 7.5 innings per start over his last 2 starts and he has dominated this Tampa Bay team over his career with a 6-2 record and an ERA of just 2.95. The Jays opponents are hitting just .157 against them over their last 7 games before coming into last nights game and the Rays are hitting just .232 as a team over their last 7 games. The Jays have won 5 straight games with their pitching and I look for their bats to finally come alive tonight against Andy Sonnanstine (4-1, 4.42 ERA) who is 1-1 against the Jays with an ERA of 6.12. The Jays are 22-10 in their last 32 home games when the posted total is 8 to 8.5 and the Rays are just 13-31 in their last 44 games as a road dog of +125 to +150. Take the Jays to make it 6 in a row tonight as my MLB Free play for Tuesday night. Make sure you get on my MLB Bookie Buster of the Night for Tuesday.

Marc Lawrence

Play On: When the Philadelphia Phillies send Adam Eaton to the hill against the Diamondbacks in Arizona tonight they'll do so knowing Eaton has won 11 of his last 12 team starts in May. He's also 6-2 in his last 8 team starts against Arizona. With Philadelphia 9-4 in their las 13 games in this ballpark, we'll back Eaton and the Phillies this evening.

Re: Tuesday Service Plays

Jimmy The Moose

Game: Tampa Bay Rays at Toronto Blue Jays
Prediction: Tampa Bay Rays

Reason: The Rays have lost 3 straight games but a game vs. the Jays will get them back on the winning side tonight. Tampa is 7-2 in their last 9 vs. a right-handed starter. The Rays have won 4 of their last 5 games played on turf. Tampa's offense has been scoring runs while the Jays offense has been sputtering. The Jays are 3-7 in their last 10 games as a home favorite. The Jays are 1-5 in their last 6 division games. The Jays have lost the last 4 meetings between the clubs including all 3 this season. Play on the Tampa Bay Rays +.

Re: Tuesday Service Plays

Big Al Mcmordie

Game: Milwaukee Brewers at Florida Marlins
Prediction: Milwaukee Brewers

Reason: At 7:10pm ET our member selection is on the Milwaukee Brewers over the Florida Marlins. Everyone is waiting for the Marlins to come back down to earth, but so far it hasn't happened. A little more than a month into the season, the Marlins find themselves with a very surprising 17-14 record and only 1 game out of first place in the NL East. But the next couple of weeks may really challenge Florida's young ballclub as the Marlins, who were already decimated by injuries, were just forced to place outfielder Josh Willingham on the 15-day DL with a bad back. Willingham had been one of the Marlins most productive hitters, and it will be interesting to see how they respond without him as they begin this tough 3-day homestand against a very dangerous Milwaukee club. Lefthander Scott Olsen gets the start for the Marlins and although Olsen has pitched very well this year, he has had the benefit of having faced the Nationals twice and Pirates once so far in his six starts. And Olsen's last start against the Dodgers at home was by far his shortest (only five innings) and worst and it was his first loss of the year in a game which saw Florida routed 13-1. More potential bad news for Olsen tonight as the Brewers are hitting 30 points higher against lefties than righthanders (.269 vs. .239). The Brew Crew dominated this series last season taking five of seven games against the Fish. Take Milwaukee.

Re: Tuesday Service Plays

Stephen Nover

San Diego Padres @ Atlanta Braves
PICK: Under

REASON FOR PICK: The San Diego Padres are batting under .200 during the past three weeks. They have scored less than three runs in eight of their last 18 games.

Atlanta starter Jair Jurrjens has a 2.25 ERA during his past three starts. Foes are hitting just .101 against him during this time span. The Padres have yet to see him.

But Padres starter Chris Young can keep San Diego in this game. Young has yielded two runs or less in all but one of his six starts this year. He has yielded just three earned runs during his last two starts, spanning 13 innings against the Giants and Phillies. He's allowed just seven hits during this time while fanning 16.

The total is too high considering the quality of these two starters and the Padres' pathetic offense.

Philadelphia Phillies at Arizona Diamondbacks

In the first game of this series the Phillies pounded the Diamondbacks 11-4. Both teams are in first place in their respective divisions with the Phillies holding a slim 1 game lead in the NL East, while the Diamondbacks have a 3 game lead in the NL West. Both these teams have started well this season and this match up may be a preview of the playoffs later in the year. Taking the mound for the Phillies is Adam Eaton (0-0 4.72 ERA), who in his last outing went 6 innings giving up 2 earned runs in a no decision. Eaton has started 6 games for the Phillies and is still looking for his first win. In game 1 of the series the Phillies scored 11 runs on 17 hits and left 13 men on base. Taking the mound for the Diamondbacks is Randy Johnson (1-1 4.79 ERA), who pitched well since coming off the DL, but in his last outing was rocked giving up 6 earned runs in only 4 innings pitched in a no decision. In yesterdays game the Diamondbacks scored 4 runs on 11 hits and left 4 men on base. Chris Snyder homered for the Diamondbacks in the game.

Staff Pick: Game 1 of the series was sloppy game, 2 errors for each team, and a hit fest with 28 hits in the game. The Diamondbacks have the best record in the majors, but have cooled off recently, 5-5 in last 10 games, after a fast start. The Phillies are 7-3 in their last 10 games and have won 2 in a row. The pitching match up is key, as Eaton has pitched decent and so has the 44 year old Randy Johnson, except for his last start. The Diamondbacks need a good start from Johnson in this game, as they do not want to drop 2 straight to the Phillies at home. Both teams can hit, as the Diamondbacks are 2nd in the NL with 183 runs scored and the Phillies are 4th with 161 runs scored. Johnson will have to be careful not to give up the long ball to the Phillies who lead the NL in home runs with 48. The Phillies Chase Utley is off to a strong start being 4th in the NL in batting average, 1st in home runs, and 5th in RBI's. Look for Johnson to bounce back and have a strong outing, as the Diamondbacks want revenge for the beat down they received from the Phillies in game 1.

Diamondbacks 6 Phillies 2


Cleveland Cavaliers at Boston Celtics

The Boston Celtics come into game 1 of the Eastern Conference semifinals after beating the Atlanta Hawks in game 7 of the first round 99-65. In Cleveland's last game they eliminated the Washington Wizards beating them 105-88. This is a much-anticipated match up of Boston's Big 3 and Cleveland's LeBron James. The Celtics had a scare in the first round, as the Hawks took them to 7 games, while the Cavs had an easier time dispatching the Wizards in 6 games. LeBron James, who in the last game against Washington had a triple double with 27 points, 13 rebounds, and 13 assists, leads Cleveland. In that game the Cavs shot well going 40/81 for a field goal percentage of 49.4% and out rebounded the Wizards 45-42. On defense the Cavs clamped down, as the Wizards only shot 31/78 for a field goal percentage of 39.7%. The Big 3 of Paul Pierce, Kevin Garnett, and Ray Allen lead Boston. The main man in their last game against Atlanta was Pierce who went for 22 points and grabbed 8 rebounds. In that game the Celtics shot 40/84 for a field goal percentage of 47.6%. Both teams finished with 46 rebounds. The difference in the game was the Celtics defense, as they held the Hawks to only 24/82 shooting for a field goal percentage of 29.3%. The Celtics only had 8 turnovers to the Hawks 16.

Staff Pick: In game 1 of the Eastern Conference semifinals the key will be if the Celts can play like they did in the first couple of games and last game of the Hawks series. In those games they dominated on the defensive end. LeBron will get his points, but for the Cavs to have any chance they need to have someone else step up and score. The Cavs Ben Wallace will have to contain Garnett, who will be fired up to get to his first NBA finals. If the Celtics can play great defense and not let a 2nd scoring option put up big numbers they will be in great shape. Boston may have overlooked the Hawks in their first round series, but that will not happen in this series. LeBron will once again have to carry his team to the finals, but going against the Big 3 that will be no easy task. Look for the Celtics to come out and dominate on defense and to win this game easily.

Celtics 98 Cavaliers 84

Re: Tuesday Service Plays

Jim Feist.

MIN Twins and CHI White Sox.
Take "Over"

Minnesota's offense has been terrific on the road, averaging close to 5 runs per game. The Twins are 9-4 over the total away from home. Twins starter Nick Blackburn is very hittable, giving up 47 hits in 38 innings. Chicago starter Gavin Floyd is too liberal with free passes, walking 15 in 31 innings. Minnesota is 10-6 over the total the last 16 games. Oddsmakers sold this total a little too short. Play the Twins/White Sox over the total!

Re: Tuesday Service Plays

Dave Cokin.

LA Angels and KC Royals.
Take "LA Angels".

The big league debut for heralded Angels rookie Nick Adenhart wasn't exactly memorable. Adenhart could not locate the strike zone and was sent to the showers after very harsh big league intro. But pitching before a big home crowd and having to do so on just three days rest was a ton for Adenhart to overcome. It gets easier here, as he makes another try at Kansas City. The Royals aren't hitting a lick and the pressure level for Adenhart will be considerably less than last week. Brian Bannister is very solid and he's been great at home. But I just can't see the Royals as chalk against the Halos, so the road team is the choice in this contest.

1 Unit on Cincinnati Reds +100

Cincinnati gets the job done at home Tuesday behind their Ace in Aaron Harang.  Harang has allowed just 5 earned runs through 21 innings at home with a 2.14 ERA to boot.  He has allowed just 13 hits through those 21 frames as well.  Harang is 14-2 as an underdog of +100 or higher over the last 2 seasons.  The Reds are 4-0 in Harang’s last 4 starts as a home underdog.  The Cubs are 0-4 in the last 4 meetings when Zambrano faces Harang.  Harang has had Zambrano’s number for a few seasons now.  Cash in with Cincinnati as the underdog.

Black Widow Sports

1* on Cubs/Reds U 8

With Zambrano and Harang toeing the mound for the Cubs and Reds respectively, the final score of this contest is sure not to exceed 8 runs combined.  This will be a classic pitcher’s duel between two of the best starters in all of baseball.  The Under is 11-0-1 in Zambranos last 12 starts as a road favorite.  The Under is 8-1 in Harangs last 9 starts vs. National League Central and 5-0 in Harang’s last 5 home starts.  Both starters come in having ERA’s well under 3.00 and each are very tough to score against.  Too many trends favor the under to pass this baby up.  Take the Under 8 runs.

3* on N.Y. Yankees -122

The Yankees have won 6 of their last 8 home games with the Cleveland Indians.  We love their chances to improve on their home record with Andy Pettite on the mound today.  The Yankees are fresh off a 3-game sweep over the Mariners.  Cleveland comes in having lost back-to-back games to the lowly Royals, scoring a mere 2 runs in those two contests total.  Cleveland is 1-10 (-10.6 Units) against the money line in road games after 2 straight games where they stranded 5 or less runners on base over the last 3 seasons.  They have been terrible in this spot for two years now, and the Indians are doing a terrible job of manufacturing runs.  They lack team speed.  Bet New York at home

100* Inside Info Selection - Phillies +$130

Sometimes in professional sports when a team loses there best or one of there best players the rest of the team understands that the must step up and play better. When the entire team plays together and through adversity it can sometimes be profitable to a sports investor. The Philadelphia put SS Jimmy Rollins on the DL the Phillies have gone an amazing 11-4 +$728. The scored at a nice price last night and I am banking on another payday today! The Dbacks are one of the most profitable teams in baseball right now. The are so good because of there starting pitching. Tonight's starter is a big question mark. The veteran Randy Johnson will take the hill. In Johnsons last start against the Astros he failed to go 5 innings. In fact he went 4 Innings - 9 Hits - 6 Earned Runs and Only 2 K's. Tonight he faces a tough Phillies line up. We are looking for another terrible outing from Johnson tonight as the key to your play. Want More? The Phillies are a profitable 6-0 in there last 6 games as an Underdog & 6-1 in there last 7 road games against a lefty starter. 100* Inside Info Selection - Phillies

JEFF BENTON

This play comes down to one basic premise: Of the two starting pitchers going tonight both of whom are off to solid starts I believe one is for real and the other is a fraud.

Washingtons Shawn Hill is a 27-year-old late-bloomer who began his season a little late because of injury. And after a rough debut at Florida, Hill bounced back with two strong outings, holding the Mets to three runs (two earned) in five innings, then came back Wednesday against the Braves and tossed eight innings, allowing a single run on four hits. He didnt get a decision in either game, but Washington won both by scores of 10-5 and 3-2, and most importantly, Hill showed his arm is good to go as he threw 98 and 94 pitches against the Mets and Braves, respectively.

Now lets talk about Houston?s Shawn Chacon the much-traveled Shawn Chacon who is with his fourth organization since 2005. Why has he moved around so much Because despite a live arm, hes never been consistent. And because I dont expect that to change this year, its sell time with Chacon, as Im confident hes about ready to implode after posting a 3.32 ERA in his first six starts. In fact, we saw signs of the impending implosion in his last start, as he gave up a season-high five runs in five innings of an 8-7 Houston loss in Arizona.

Throw in the fact the Nats are 8-2 in their last 10 meetings with the Astros, and Im willing to back Washington despite its season-long struggles on the road.

TONY WESTON

The Phillies ruined the debut of heralded D-Backs pitcher Max Scherzer as they destroyed Arizona 11-4. Actually, Scherzer didn?t pitch too bad, giving up only two earned runs in four innings of work.

That?s not the point. Philadelphia continued its hot hitting ways and is now 4-1 its last five games and has scored 28 runs in that stretch.

For Arizona, the team is only 2-4 its last six games and will turn to one-time phenom Randy Johnson, who is only 1-1 this season with a 4.79 ERA. In his two starts at home this year he?s given up 10 earned runs in 9 2/3 innings of work.

He?s struggled and definitely not the same pitcher he once was. Take the hot Phillies offense to light up Johnson.

Go with Philadelphia on the road.

3* PHILLIES

Tampa Bay (Kazmir) @ Boston (Lester)
Play On: Tampa Bay +120

The Rays were very careful to bring back Scott Kazmir too soon from the disabled list especially in light of the surprising start of the ball club. There is a good chance that Kazmir will be on a strict pitch count in his first start of 2008 however that is already factored into the selection. Statistically Tampa has the #1 bullpen in MLB with an ERA of 2.42 and in the last 10 games they have been even better posting a cumulative 1.60 ERA. Kazmir has not been intimidated by starting versus the mighty Red Sox in his young career as a matter of fact in 15 starts since 2005 versus Boston he has posted a sterling 2.93 ERA. Kazmir is 6-2 in his last 8 team starts on the road versus a team with a win percentage of better than .500 and 12-5 in his last 17 overall team starts versus winning teams. The Boston starter Lester has posted a lofty 5.56 ERA in 4 starts versus Tampa since 2005. Lester is 0-4 in his last 4 team starts versus teams with a win percentage of better than .500. With the Rays winning 8 of their last 10 and with all considered that has been already mentioned we are getting a very good underdog value in this spot.

Play on Tampa Bay
