VEGAS EXPERTS

San Diego Padres at Atlanta Braves

The Padres just can't score runs to save their lives right now. Only two times since 4/23 have they scored more than four runs in a single game. Facing the Braves' Tim Hudson certainly isn't going to help considering the righty is 3-0 at home this year with a 1.66 ERA. He has also led his team to wins in 39 of 46 outings if he did not walk a batter in his previous outing. Atlanta is averaging over six runs per game at home this season, while San Diego is just over 3.5 on the road.

Play on: Atlanta

Cleveland Indians @ New York Yankees Under 7.5

The Cleveland Indians and the NY Yankees prepare to send two top quality hurlers to the hill this afternoon in the Bronx Zoo, as Chien Ming Wang (6-0, 3.00) goes for the pinstripes and Cliff Lee (5-0, 0.96 ERA) returns fire for the Tribe. Despite of the talent both these teams have in their lineup, they have both struggled in certain situations and against southpaw and righty throwers. The Yankees are hitting a lowly .211 as a team vs lefties like Lee during their L/10 games. The Indians against right handers like Wang have hit for a ugly .204 BA during the same span. With two capable bullpens backing both these pitchers tonight, and both teams documented struggles at the plate, a low scoring game very much looks to be on the agenda. Final notes & Key Trends: Cleveland have gone under in 8 of their L/10 overall. The NYY have stayed on the low side of the number, in 8 of their L/9 and 10 of their L/11 against a team with a losing record like the Indians. Play under

Re: WEDNESDAY SERVICE PLAYS

Matt Fargo

Cleveland Indians vs. New York Yankees
Play: Cleveland Indians   

The Indians snagged Game One of this series last night on a big home run in the eighth inning and that momentum can carry over into tonight. The win snapped a small two-game losing skid but more importantly it halted the Yankees three-game winning steak. Cleveland is now above .500 on the road as it has now won four in a row away from home. Pitching has been the strength and that continues tonight with Cliff Lee on the hill. The Indians have a 3.13 ERA over their last 10 games.

New York is now just 8-8 at home as the inconsistent season continues. It has been all about the streaks as the Yankees have now lost six straight games following a loss in their first game. The offense is surely to blame as of their 17 losses on the season, the Yankees have scored four runs or fewer in 13 of those defeats, averaging just 3.1 rpg in those 17 games. New York is just 1-7 in its last eight games as a favorite and it is hitting a mere .202 against left-handed pitching over its last 10 games.

There is not much more than can be said about Cliff Lee as he is having an incredible season thus far. He is 5-0 with a 0.98 ERA and 0.56 WHIP as he has dominated in every game he has gone out on the hill. He is coming off his worst start of the season against the Mariners but even that was a solid effort, allowing three runs in six innings. He has yet to allow a single earned run on the road, tossing 23.2 innings of shutout baseball with the exception of one unearned run against Oakland.

Chien-Ming Wang is having a spectacular season as well as he is a perfect 6-0 with a 3.00 ERA and 1.13 WHIP. He has had only one blemish and that came against the Red Sox where he allowed eight runs in just four innings. That was not a huge surprise as he has always struggled against Boston and Cleveland fits into that same category. He has a 5.63 ERA in six appearances against the Indians. He shut them down earlier this season but a second crack at him favors the offense this time around. Play Cleveland Indians 1.5 Units

Jimmy The Moose

Game: San Francisco Giants at Pittsburgh Pirates
Prediction: Pittsburgh Pirates

Reason: The Giants are 6-11 this season on the road and in their last 31 road games they are 9-22. San Francisco is 6-15 in their last 21 road games as an underdog. The Giants are 0-5 in the last 5 games Mischs has started. The Pirats are 11-4 in their last 15 games as a home favorite. The Pirates bats came alive last night and beat up on the Giants and you can expect more of the same tonight. The Pirates are 11-2 in the last 13 meetings between the clubs. Play on the Pirates -.

Re: WEDNESDAY SERVICE PLAYS

STEPHEN NOVER

St. Louis @ Colorado Rockies
PICK: St. Louis

REASON FOR PICK: Maybe they still haven't gotten over being swept in last year's World Series by the Boston Red Sox.

But there's something wrong with the Colorado Rockies. They've seemed to have lost their identity.

Yet, despite losing 12 of their past past 15 games, the Rockies are favored today against the St. Louis Cardinals. This despite a pitching matchup of southpaw Jeff Francis versus Adam Wainwright.

This isn't 2007 for Francis. He's 0-3 with a 5.26 ERA this season. The Rockies have lost five of his six starts.

Wainwright, though, is proving to be the real deal since coverting to a starter from the bullpen. In his last 19 starts, going back to last season, he's allowed three or fewer runs in 17 of those outings. During the other two starts, he yielded four runs. The Cardinals are 24-14 the past two years when he's started.

St. Louis is 5-1 this season when Wainwright has started. The right-hander has a 2.60 ERA with a 0.97 WHIP. Colorado is 8-17 versus right-handers.

The Cardinals are 12-5 in their last 17 away contests. Their confidence is high. The Rockies are struggling. They really miss their injured star shortstop Troy Tulowitzki. He's their version of Derek Jeter.

Re: WEDNESDAY SERVICE PLAYS

Ross Benjamin

Game:     Cubs (Lieber) @ Cincinnati (Volquez)
Pick: Under 9.0    

The Cincinnati starting pitcher Volquez has been terrific in 6 starts this season posting a stellar 1.27 ERA. The Reds are hitting just .236 as a team versus right-handed pitching at home this season. The Cubs Jon Lieber makes his first start of the season after being relegated to the bullpen to begin the year. Lieber has put up very good numbers in relief posting a 1.86 ERA and a better than 4:1 strikeout to walk ratio. In 2 starts at Cincinnati since 2005 Lieber did not allow an earned run. The Cubs are 17-43-3 under in the last 60 on the road, and 10-27-1 under the total in the last 38 away versus a team with a less than .500 record at home. Play on under the total as my free selection of the day.

Re: WEDNESDAY SERVICE PLAYS

Dave Cokin.

NY Mets and LA Dodgers.
Take "LA Dodgers".

The Dodgers continue to be red hot as they go for the sweep against the Mets. John Maine is not throwing like he did last year, and he's allowing an alarming number of baserunners. Brad Penny is also struggling perhaps a little more than some of his stats might indicate. His K/IP ratio is way down. But Penny usually finds a way to hang tough and there's no question LA is in far superior team form presently. I'll spot the price with the Dodgers here."

Re: WEDNESDAY SERVICE PLAYS

Jim Feist.

MIL Brewers and FLA Marlins.
Take "MIL Brewers"

Milwaukee's offense has been better on the road than at home, averaging 4.7 runs away. Starter Dave Bush is back from spending five days with Nashville, making one start while working out control problems. He allowed just one earned run in six innings. Florida starter Burke Badenhop has struggled for the young Marlins, with a 7.20 ERA and an 0-2 record. Florida is on a 3-5 run and this park is huge, excellent for pitchers who throw strikes. Play the Brewers!

Re: WEDNESDAY SERVICE PLAYS

John Fina

Selection: Philadelphia/Arizona Over 10.5

Today we expect a high-scoring game as the Philadelphia Phillies do battle with the Arizona Diamondbacks. One reason why we expect a high-scoring game is because both these teams will send to the mound starting pitchers who have been struggling as of late. This says it all... The Philadelphia Phillies Starting Pitcher (Kyle Kendrick) has a 5.50 ERA in his last 3 starts, while Arizona Diamondbacks Starting Pitcher (Micah Owings) has a 7.41 ERA in his last 3 starts. In addition, the Over is 5-1 in Micah Owings 6 starts this season. The bottom line, we should see many runs scored tonight!

Take the Philadelphia Phillies/Arizona Diamondbacks Over 10.5

Re: WEDNESDAY SERVICE PLAYS

TONY WESTON

Itll probably be one of the better pitching matchups in the early season as the Indians undefeated Cliff Lee (5-0) battles undefeated Yankees pitcher Chien-Ming Want (6-0) in the Bronx.

This will be the fifth meeting between these teams so far this season with the Indians leading the early season series 3-2 following last night?s 5-3 victory.

Including last nights loss the Yankees are now only 3-5 their last eight games at home, while the Indians are on a 5-2 run on the road, including four straight victories away from Cleveland.

Also consider that while Wang has a season 3.00 ERA, that balloons at home where his ERA is 4.30.

Cleveland will get to Wang and hand him his first loss of the season.

Take the Tribe on the road.

3* INDIANS

Re: WEDNESDAY SERVICE PLAYS

Karl Garrett

I like the OVER tonight at the Staples Center. I know the first game held UNDER the total, but this game has seen the total come down a few baskets, and I can't help but believe the hype of Kobe Bryant copping his first MVP award won't translate into a few extra points from #24.

The last two meetings between the teams have both stayed low, but the previous 3, and 5 of the previous 6 had all sailed OVER the total, and you should also know that 6 of the last 8 games played between the teams in the City of Angels have played OVER the posted price.

With the extra day of rest for the teams, look for the fresher legs to make the difference in pushing the pace and generating some more offense from both clubs.

Los Angeles has cracked the century mark in 12 straight games, and 17 of the last 18.

Not wanting to head back to Utah down 0-2, expect the Jazz to try and keep pace.

This one is going OVER the total.

Re: WEDNESDAY SERVICE PLAYS

Sports Gambling Hotline

Tonight we like some offense to show up in Orlando, as the Pistons and Magic clash in Game Three of their best of seven set.

Game One was easily UNDER the total, but Game Two landed OVER the posted price with relative ease. Same tonight, as we believe those 7 three-pointers in a row the Magic hit in Game Two will have a carryover effect now that they are shooting at home.

5 of the last 7 series meetings (playoffs included) have eclipsed the total, and 8 of the last 11 overall between the teams have sailed OVER the posted price.

Orlando needs to get on board in this series, or face the prospect of going down 0-3, so expect the Magic to lay it all on the line tonight and this game to find its way into the OVER column.

Play the high.

3* OVER

Re: WEDNESDAY SERVICE PLAYS

Bobby Maxwell

I know, I know. Barry Zito has been horrible this season and pretty horrible since becoming a San Francisco Giant. He?s 0-6 with a 7.53 ERA and he got ripped hard in his last start. Hes been demoted to the bullpen and much was made about such a high-priced pitcher being sent to the pen.

You know its been eating away at him and lets remember he is still young, won the AL Cy Young in 2002 and even went 3-2 with a 3.10 ERA in his last nine starts last season. You know the inner-drive within him will not let him go out there and get bombed again. Hes too good a pitcher and hell be locked in mentally tonight.

Phil Dumatrait (0-1, 4.74) goes for Pittsburgh in this one and hes taken the place of veteran Matt Morris who was released after five poor starts. Dumatrait gave up four runs in four innings in his debut against the Nationals on Friday.

The Pirates have really struggled against left-handed pitching in their last 10 games, hitting just .228 against southpaws and going 2-10 in their last 12 outings against a lefty.
Lets take a shot, grab the plus-money and go with Zito and the Giants today. Watch as he shows some of his old form and gets us a winner.

2* SAN FRANCISCO
