Line: Boston-185
Rating: Guaranteed 60 Unit Line Value Interleague GOM
In this contest, my money is on the Boston Red Sox

Many might think this line is rather high, but come on folks, it's not even close to being high enough. Yes the Red Sox come into this one on a four game losing streak, but those all came on the road. In fact, they are coming off a 10 game road trip, where they lost six of them, and that knocked them out of first place, by none other than the Tampa Bay Rays. They now come home where they own a ML-best 14-5 record. If that wasn't a strong enough argument, they happen to be putting their best pitcher to the hill in Daisuke Matsuzaka. All this right-hander has done is go a perfect 5-0 while sporting a 2.45 ERA. A key here is that the Red Sox have WON ALL EIGHT OF THIS STARTS THIS SEASON. His numbers are even better over his last three starts, despite some wildness. He is 2-0 and sports an ERA of 1.42. They will be taking on a Milwaukee team that just finished a six game home stand. Now they go on the road where they have lost six straight by a combined 21 runs. Folks, that's almsost FOUR RUNS PER GAME! Jeff Suppan takes the hill and he is 2-2 with a 4.63 ERA, but in his last three starts is is just 1-2 as his ERA has climbed to 6.89. Look for the Red Sox to hit him hard. Boston wins by a ton.

Re: FRIDAY SERVICE PLAYS

LT Profits

New York Yankees +135

Now we have all the respect in the world for Johan Santana, but we simply cannot pass up the New York Yankees at this generous price at home as they open up the Subway Series vs. the New York Mets.

Now Santana is 4-2, and the Mets are 6-2 as a team when he has started, but he has been far from the best pitcher in baseball yet this season. While most pitchers would be happy with a 3.04 ERA, that is actually high by Johan?s standards, and he uncharacteristically allowed 10 hits in six innings vs. the Cincinnati Reds in a 12-6 Mets victory in his last start.

His mound opponent Darrell Rasner has actually pitched very well in his two starts since being recalled by the Bronx Bombers. He allowed just two runs and five hits in six innings in his seasonal debut vs. the Seattle Mariners, and he followed that up with an arguably better outing in Detroit, where he allowed two runs and only four hits, again in six innings. Also, he is supported by a Yankees bullpen that ranks sixth in the majors with a 3.23 ERA, making them a Bullpen System play here.

It won't be easy vs. Santana, but we would feel very comfortable if the Yankees could bring a lead into the late innings at this rather inflated price.

Yankees +135


Tampa Bay Rays -105

The Tampa Bay Rays are the biggest surprise in baseball this year, and we look for their success to continue when they visit the St. Louis Cardinals to kick off interleague play.

In all honesty, we are not thrilled with either starting pitcher here, but we feel the Tampa Bay bullpen is light years ahead of the Cardinals, and therein lies the key to this contest. The Rays have won seven out of eight games, and they qualify under our Bullpen System here. While that angle is just 32-31 so far this season, it is still +3.26 units and has yet to go into the red at any point. Remember that our Bullpen System has averaged +97 units the last three years.

Andy Sonnanstine has gone 5-1 for Tampa Bay, but it has not been pretty, as evidenced by his high 5.07 ERA. In fact, he has been downright brutal in his last two starts, allowing a total of nine runs and 18 hits in 11 innings, yet the red-hot Rays found a way to win both of those games. In all fairness, Sonnanstine did have three straight Quality Starts prior to those last two debacles, including two outings where he allowed one run or less. Should he repeat his last two efforts however, it is certainly reassuring to know that the Rays bullpen has a collective 3.18 ERA, ranking third in the American League and fifth in the Major Leagues.

Braden Looper of the Cardinals practically mirrors Sonnanstine in that his rather high 4.21 ERA has ballooned over his last two starts, when he allowed a total of eight earned runs and 18 baserunners in 14.1 innings. The difference though is that Looper does not expect to get much support from a bullpen that ranks 22nd with a 4.30 ERA after deposed closer Jason Isringhausen imploded again yesterday.

Finally, the Rays style of play ironically resembles the Cardinals during their glory days, based on speedsters getting on base and advancing either via steals and hit-and-run plays, except that Tampa Bay now does it better. If their bullpen remains as strong as it has been so far, the entire league will realize that Tampa Bay is not a fluke.

Re: FRIDAY SERVICE PLAYS

Drew Gordon

Cleveland +105 at CINCINNATI 

While both clubs have been playing well, coming off respective series sweeps, the play here falls squarely on the Indians shoulders, as they get a shot at the struggling rookie Johnny Cueto.

Not to say he's a "flash in the pan" type pitcher, but after his excellent season debut, many were expecting big things from the Reds young righty. But as is the case with most young pitchers, there's going to ups and downs, and right now, Cueto is firmly entrenched in a slump, going 1-3 with a 9.31 ERA over his last 4 starts! He got rocked for 6 runs in 4 2/3 innings at Shea in his last one, and despite the Indians struggles at the plate, Cueto remains extremely vulnerable in this one.

Opposing Cueto is the Indians southpaw Jeremy Sowers, who's despite making only one spot start for the Tribe this season was rock-solid, allowing the powerhouse Yankees offense 3 runs in 5 1/3 innings back on April 26th. Fact of the matter is the Indians pitching staff has been on point of late, with the starters going 6-0 with a ridiculous 0.16 ERA over their last 7 games (6-1 over that span)! Not to be outdone, the Indians bullpen has posted a 2.84 ERA over their last 19 innings. Despite all the fanfare for the supposed "phenom" Cueto, the Indians Sowers can and will get the job done tonight.

Finally, the real issue with the Reds isn't just Cueto tonight, but their bullpen, which has been atrocious of late, posting a 10.19 ERA over their last 17 2/3 innings. While both offenses will get their chances, the fact of the matter remains: Even if Cueto outpitches Sowers, can you really trust the Reds bullpen? The answer is no of course! Indians roll!

Take Cleveland behind Sowers over Cincinnati and Cueto in this MLB match up.

1 Unit on LA Angels -128

The Angels are one of the best interleague teams in baseball and they have certainly had the number of their intracity rivals.   The Dodgers are 1-7 in the last 8 meetings and 5-17 in the last 22 meetings at the Angels.  The Angels are 6-0 in their last 6 interleague games as a favorite of -110 to -150, 10-1 in their last 11 interleague home games, 14-3 in their last 17 interleague games as a favorite, and 20-8 in their last 28 interleague games overall.  The Angels are also 5-0 in Saunders' last 5 starts as a favorite and 21-8 in Saunders' last 29 starts.  The Dodgers are 0-6 in their last 6 interleague road games vs. a left-handed starter, 4-23 in their last 27 interleague road games, and 10-29 in their last 39 interleague games period.  Take the Halos here.

1 Unit on Texas Rangers +102

I like the Rangers at home showing good value in this in-state showdown.  The Rangers are 8-0 in their last 8 when their opponent scores 5 runs or more in their previous game, 7-1 in their last 8 games as an underdog, 5-1 in their last 6 games following a loss, and 7-2 in their last 9 overall.  The Astros are 2-5 in their last 7 interleague road games and 7-15 in their last 22 interleague road games vs. a right-handed starter.  Houston has been playing well, but outside of Berkman, they don't have enough firepower to keep pace with their intrastate rivals here.  Ponson is 2-0 with an ERA of 3.16.  I like him to shut down the 'stros  Take Texas.

Re: FRIDAY SERVICE PLAYS

Matt Fargo

Tampa Bay Rays @ St. Louis
PICK: St. Louis

REASON FOR PICK: Tampa Bay has been hot but this line is a little aggressive for the upstart Rays. Coming off a series win over the Yankees was huge but now it is letdown time, especially now that it is once again time to hit the road. As usual with this team, it is much better at home than on the road. This season, the Rays are 8-9 away from home and this follows records of 29-52, 20-61, 27-54, 29-52, 27-54 and 25-55. You get the picture. Until Tampa Bay can start winning on the road, it should never be a favorite or even close to it.

The Cardinals have gone through a bit of a struggle with only two wins in their last nine games but I still consider them the superior team here. St. Louis is 15-9 at home this season and the success has come from a combination of solid pitching and consistent hitting. The Cardinals have a team ERA of 3.31 at home including 2.92 from the starting rotation. The bullpen has been struggling of late so the starters are the key. As for the offense, St. Louis is hitting .285 at home, the 5th best home average in baseball.

Braden Looper looks to recover from two straight below average performances against the Rockies and Brewers. However, it is important to note that those two outings came on the road where his ERA is close to a run and a half higher than it is at home. Looper has a 3.67 ERA at home and that includes one blowup game against the Giants where he allowed seven runs in just three innings. He has allowed two runs or fewer in his other four home starts, posting a solid 1.50 ERA in those games.

Andy Sonnanstine started the season slow, got hot, but is now once again in a funk. He has allowed nine runs in his last two starts which followed three straight quality outings. Surprisingly, all five of those games resulted in Tampa Bay wins. The winning streak is impressive but it has more been coincidence than it has been of solid pitching. Only three of his eight starts have been on the road where his ERA is 4.43 for the year and 5.17 in his 15 career road outings. Play St. Louis Cardinals 1.5 Units

Re: FRIDAY SERVICE PLAYS

DOC'S

Kansas City Royals @ Florida Marlins
PICK: Over

REASON FOR PICK: One only needs to look at the weak starting pitching in this game to feel confident that there will be a lot of runs scored in this affair. Brett Tomko will toe the rubber for the Royals and he does not have the stuff at this age to blow it past big league hitters. That is evident by the fact he is 1-4 with a 5.67 E.R.A. Believe it or not, that is a better E.R.A. then what Andrew Miller is allowing as he has enter the six range currently with an E.R.A. of 6.52. Yet his record is 3-2 meaning the Fish are scoring runs for him in these starts. Florida wins a high scoring game giving us the victory with the over.

Re: FRIDAY SERVICE PLAYS

Jeff Benton

Take the Angels over the Dodgers.

I know this is a new era of Dodgers baseball with Joe Torre at the helm, and that Torre obviously has a ton of experience managing in American League ballparks. But I still dont think you can ignore just how god-awful the Dodgers have been in interleague play over the years. They come into tonight having lost 29 of their last 39 interleague games, including 21 of their last 27 interleague contests against winning teams. Not only that, but the Dodgers are 14-37 in their last 57 interleague games as an underdog, 4-23 in their last 27 interleague road games and 1-7 in their last eight against the A.L. West.

Those are some startling numbers. And given those numbers, it should come as no surprise that the Angels have owned this Freeway Series of late, winning seven of the last eight meetings, including five straight at home by the combined score of 32-6! Also, the one team that Joe Torre had a losing record against in his time as Yankees manager The Angels.

Then you look at this pitching matchup of Joe Saunders (6-1, 2.48 ERA) against the Dodgers Hiroki Kuroda (1-2, 3.59 ERA), and the advantage lies with the Angels. Throw in the fact that the Halos are unbeaten in Saunders four home starts and 21-8 in his last 29 starts overall, and this price on the home team is too cheap to pass up.

Oakland (Eveland) + over Atlanta (Jurrjens)

Atlanta owns a great home record but the As are a winning road team. Oakland has historically been one of the top interleague teams year in and year out and this is great underdog value for the opener of what is traditionally an AL dominated event. Jair Jurrjens has posted great numbers this season but he ran into some trouble in his most recent start and it is unlikely that he will continue at a similar pace. He owns great numbers at home but it is built on just three starts, all against weak hitting offenses. Despite the strong numbers the Braves are just 4-4 when Jurrjens starts. Dana Eveland has pitched great for the As this season with a 3.23 ERA. The As also own arguably the top bullpen in baseball through the fist quarter of the season. Oaklands offense doesn?t post huge numbers but the As get on base a lot and have shown the ability to win close games. The Braves on the other hand have struggled to close out games and tend to waste good starting performances with late-inning collapses.

Strike Point Sports

These are pretty good odds on Johan Santana, also considering how poorly the Yankees have been playing. The Mets, too, haven't looked great, but they have a big time edge over Darrell Rasner in this one and will get to him more than the Bombers will touch the Mets' ace. The subway series opener goes to the road team from Queens.

Robert Ferringo

The Diamondbacks have been smoking at home, while the Tigers just got swept by the lowly Royals. Jeremy Bonderman is weak, and has been touched up for nine runs in 10 innings over his last two outings. Mix in the fact that we have two weak bullpens and that Dan Haren has a career ERA over 5.00 and I love the 'over' here. The Diamondbacks are 8-0-1 against the total in their last nine interleague games and 20-7-2 in their last 29 interleague home games. Detroit couldn't put a thing together against the Royals. But I think they are about to snap out of their hitting slump in a big way. I just don't think their bullpen is going to be able to nail it down, and I see this one turning out to be an 8-7 Arizona winner.

Re: FRIDAY SERVICE PLAYS

Michael Cannon

15 Dime

METS (With Santana and Rasner as listed pitchers)

Take the Mets as the road chalk for the win tonight over the Yankees.

The Yankees are faltering. Big time.

Their once potent lineup has been decimated by injuries and they are struggling to score runs. That doesn?t bode well going into tonight?s game with Johan Santana taking the mound.

The left-hander has settled down after a bit of a rocky start to the season. He?s 4-2 with a 3.10 ERA in eight games. Santana has been good against the Yankees in his career too, going 3-0 with a 2.66 ERA in five games.

Since the Yankees don?t have the same potent lineup right now that Santana is used to facing, he should be able to hold them in check.

Take the Mets as they grab the road win.


10 Dime

CAVALIERS

Take the Cavs minus the points tonight in Game 6 over the Celtics.

There?s no reason to think the Cavs won?t win and cover here. Boston has yet to show it can win on the road and with each loss on the highway it becomes more of a psychological problem than anything.

Home teams have dominated this playoff season, going 20-1 SU and 16-4-1 ATS. Detroit is the only road team that has posted a road win.

Cleveland is 4-1 ATS in this series and 5-1 ATS in its last six overall. The Cavs are also 7-0 ATS as a playoff favorite of less than five points, 6-1 ATS as a playoff chalk at any price and 4-1 ATS at home.

Boston is only 4-7 ATS in its last 11 games overall. They are 0-5 SUATS on the road in this year?s playoffs, 1-7 ATS in conference semifinal games, 1-5 ATS against teams with a winning SU record and 1-4 ATS as a playoff dog of less than five points.

Take the Cavs as they grab the home win and cover and force a Game 7.


5 Dime

MARLINS (With Tomko and Miller as listed pitcher)

All right, I had Andrew Miller and the Florida Marlins last night over the Reds, but the game was rained out.

I see no reason to jump ship just because the opponent changes to the Kansas City Royals.

I wrote yesterday how Miller had turned his season around, going 2-0 with a 4.50 ERA over his last three games. He is coming off his best start of the season, pitching seven shutout innings, walking one and striking out seven at Washington on Saturday.

The Royals will start Brett Tomko and I just don?t trust this guy. The right-hander is 1-4 with a 5.67 ERA in games this year.

The Marlins have come together a lot quicker than anyone anticipated.

The Royals are also a team on the upswing, but that?s only when they send Brian Bannister or Zack Greinke to the mound.

Take the Marlins as they grab the home win

Game: Washington at Baltimore
Pick: Baltimore -128

Washington spoiled the Mets chances to make the playoffs last September, and come back and take three of four in NY. Other than being Met killers the track record on the road for the Nats isn't very impressive. As good as Shawn Hill has pitched for the Nats, Garrett Olson has been better for the O's. Olson is pitching with a DH in the lineup, and has posted an ERA that is better than half a run better than Hill. The O's are getting it done at home, as they are 12-6 at Camden Yard, and we look for them to open interleague play with a win.

Toronto Blue Jays vs. Philadelphia Phillies
Play: Toronto Blue Jays   

Philadelphia (22-19) starts Moyer on the mound against Toronto (20-22) on Friday knowing that he has lost 2 of his last 3 starts against Toronto, getting shelled for 28 hits for 17 earned runs in only 15 innings of work! Philly is a hitters ballpark and the Blue Jays should have their ways. Toronto starts left hander, David Purcey, against a Philly team that's just 9-7 against southpaws this season and that combination is enough to back the dog here as Toronto enters this on a 3-game winning streak.
