Brian Marshall

Game: Philadelphia Phillies vs. Washington Nationals

Plays On: Philadelphia/Washington Over 9.5

Game Analyses: Do you love high-scoring baseball games? If yes, you will love Wednesday's MLB game between the Philadelphia Phillies and Washington Nationals.

The Philadelphia Phillies will be lead by starting pitcher Jamie Moyer. Jamie Moyer is having a bad season. In fact, Jamie Moyer has a 4.89 ERA on the season. In addition, Jamie Moyer has a 5.60 ERA in his last 3 starts. It's safe to say that Jamie Moyer will give up many runs once again today.

The Washington Nationals will be lead by starting pitcher Matt Chico. Matt Chico is also having a bad season. In fact, Matt Chico has a 6.07 ERA on the season. Matt Chico also has a 10.95 ERA in his last 3 starts. It's clear that Matt Chico will give up many runs once again today.

The bottom line, we should see many runs scored today!

Take the Philadelphia Phillies/Washington Nationals Over 9.5

Tom Freese

We like a low scoring game here as both starting pitchers Javier Vazquez of the White Sox and Paul Byrd of the Indians have a better than 10-1 strikeout to walk ratio in their last 3 starts. Cleveland is 8-0 UNDER their last 8 games as underdogs and they are 6-0 UNDER in Byrd's last 6 starts. Chicago is 11-3 UNDER vs. losing teams and they are 16-5 UNDER their last 21 games. PLAY ON 'UNDER'

INDIANS / WHITE SOX UNDER

Re: WEDNESDAY SERVICE PLAYS

Matt Rivers

This game is at the very worst 50-50 and I'm therefore all about the visitors. I do give Javier Vazquez a slight edge over Paul Byrd but I would not be surprised in the slightest to see Byrd look the better tonight. Both hurlers have been around the block and are extremely professional. When off either can get smacked around but when on they can look like All-Stars.

Chicago has been just as good so far this season but Cleveland, when all is said and done, will have more wins and the better shot at making it to the post season as they are the superior team. Victor Martinez and Travis Hafner have not really done much of anything but they will at some point to help out a star in Grady Sizemore and prove how the Indians are right up there in the American League and all of baseball.

Being at home in baseball is not what it is in most sports so I really do not give the White Sox that much of an advantage in that regard and in the end I will back what is the overall better club plus a little bit.

Cleveland Indians

Re: WEDNESDAY SERVICE PLAYS

John Ryan

Ai Simulator 3* graded play on Kansas City Colon is back in the majors, but is not the same pitcher he once was and has attempted to recreate himself. He has done so in the minors, but now has to face major league hitters. Colon allowed just one earned run in 3 starts, 14.0 innings, with Triple-A Pawtucket before his call-up, going 2-0 with a 0.64ERA. He allowed a single hit in 2 of those outings, both wins: his season debut on vs. Indianapolis on April 3 (1 hit, 1 BB in 5.0 innings) and his latest start at Buffalo on May 15 (1 hit in 6.0 nnings). He surrendered his only run on 4 hits versus Norwich on May 10, a 3.0 inning outing. He fanned 11 while issuing a walk in his 14.0 total IP.No doubt KC will make him pitch and throw strikes in the first trip through the lineup knowing that his pitch count will around 75 for this game. Brett Tomko gets the call in the third game of this series tonight and he snapped a personal 4-game losing streak that spanned 6 starts with a 7-6 win over the Marlins in Florida on Friday night. In that start he went 6.0 innings allowing 5 hits and 2 runs with 2 walks and 4 strikeouts. The win over the Marlins was his first since knocking off the Twins in the Metrodome on April 6, a 3-1 win in which he tossed 5.0 shutout innings. Used mainly as a starter in his career, tomorrow will be his 356th big league appearance and 259th start, in a career that began in 1997 with Cincinnati and has since traveled through Seattle, San Diego (twice), St. Louis, San Francisco and Los Angeles. KC is 46-47 +20 units after a loss by 2 runs or less over the past 3 seasons. Take KC.

Re: WEDNESDAY SERVICE PLAYS

Wunderdog

Tampa Bay at Oakland
Pick: Tampa Bay -104

My, how things have changed. Tampa Bay in virtually a pick-em game on the road without Kazmir on the hill - for good reason. The value is there as odds-makers try to decide if this team is for real and 40+ games into the season, they are every bit the real deal. Sonnanstine has pitched the Rays to six straight wins, and an ERA of under three, while the Rays have outscored these six teams by a margin of 34-14! Oakland is playing the worst baseball of any team right now, as they limp into this one just 2-8 in their last 10. Dana Eveland has pitched well, but the A's are just 1-3 in his last four starts. The main reason is this A's team has produced just 19 runs in their last eight games, and even Sandy Koufax would struggle to find the win column with that type of support. The Rays are winning and no reason to see it any differently today.

Jeff Alexander Sports

1 Unit on D-Backs/Marlins OVER 8

I know Webb is on the hill for the D-backs, but the Snakes have supported him much better this season and I think oddsmakers have set the bar too low with this line.  The Over is 7-1-1 in the Diamondbacks last 9 games following a loss, 11-3-1 in the Diamondbacks last 15 during game 2 of a series, 4-0 in Webb's last 4 starts as a favorite, and 4-0 in Webb's last 4 starts with the total set at 7.0-8.5.  The Over is 7-0 in the Marlins last 7 games with the total set at 7.0-8.5, 6-0 in the Marlins last 6 games vs. a starter with a WHIP less than 1.15, 10-2 in the Marlins last 12 vs. the National League West, and 4-0-1 in the Marlins last 5 games following a win.  With numbers this strong supporting my beat, I'll make a small play on the OVER here.

Re: WEDNESDAY SERVICE PLAYS

SCOTT SPREITZER

Arizona Diamondbacks at Florida Marlins
Prediction:Arizona Diamondbacks

I'm playing the D'backs on Wednesday night. The Florida Marlins will likely be hard-pressed to hang in this one. NO ONE has solved Brandon Webb yet this season. Webb has won all nine of his starts, including a perfect 4-0 road record where he owns a 1.33 ERA, 1.00 WHIP, and a sparkling, .163 BAA! Florida will counter with Ricky Nolasco, who has experienced a nightmare of a start at home. The Marlins have lost both of his home starts and in four Dolphin Stadium appearances overall, the righthander has been tagged for 12 earned runs and 22 hits in just 15 innings of work. Almost as bad as his home numbers have been his results in night outings. Nolasco has made six evening starts, posting a 6.68 ERA, 1.65 WHIP, and .308 BAA! With Webb likely going deep into this one, and with the Marlins' pen likely seeing plenty of action, I'm siding with the visiting D'backs. Arizona gets the road win on Wednesday.

Re: WEDNESDAY SERVICE PLAYS

BEN BURNS

Los Angeles Angels @ Toronto Blue Jays
PICK: Toronto Blue Jays

REASON FOR PICK:  Despite dropping yesterday's series opener, the Jays remain a healthy 8-3 the last 11 times they hosted the Angels and 14-6 the last 20. I expect them to bounce back from yesterday's setback and resume that homefield series dominance this evening. The vistors send Garland to the mound and while he's been better recently, he's still been merely mediocre since joining the team. His ERA for the season is still 4.32 and his WHIP is a relatively shaky 1.457. Garland has been successful at Toronto but that's been largely due to getting a lot of run support, as he's allowed 18 earned runs in last four starts here, a span of 23 2/3 innings. Garland's team (Chicago) scored 28 runs in those four games but he isn't likely to get much run support this evening.

Marcum gets the call and he's been excellent this season, going 4-2 (Jays are 6-3) with a 2.50 ERA and a 0.85 WHIP. He's averaged seven complete innings at home on the season, while recording more strikeouts (36) than innings (35) pitched. The Jays are also 2-0 when Marcum has faced the Angels, winning by a combined score of 11-3. Marcum had a miniscule 2.08 ERA and 1.154 WHIP in those two games, allowing just three earned runs in 13 innings. Marcum has allowed three earned rus or less in five of his last six starts here and I look for him to deliver another quality effort here. Consider a play on TORONTO

Re: WEDNESDAY SERVICE PLAYS

Doc's Sports

Cleveland Indians @ Chicago White Sox
PICK: Over

REASON FOR PICK: Tonight’s game features a pair of well known pitchers but both rely on their junk and do not have the stuff to blow it past hitters. The line-ups up and down both squads are strong with 15 guys having the ability to hit it out of the ballpark. Both of these pitchers have E.R.A.’s over four runs per game when facing the opponent and that is all that we need to collect with this over.

Re: WEDNESDAY SERVICE PLAYS

Scott Spreitzer NBA TKO GAME OF THE WEEK! *6-1, 86% Winners!

I'm laying the points in game one with the Lakers. Two major issues led to San Antone's game-seven win over New Orleans. First of all, Hornets coach Byron Scott was completely out-classed. Going to a soft-double team after dominating the Spurs each time they took it to Duncan earlier in the series was a huge mistake. The other issue was the outside shooting of Finley and Horry. The two veterans were on top of their game and the Hornets were a mess defensively...enough said. Thankfully, we cashed with the Spurs. But in this one, the Spurs will obviously NOT have a huge coaching advantage. If Popovich changes his defensive rotations every three or four minutes like he did in game-seven against New Orleans, Phil Jackson and Kobe Bryant will adjust accordingly. The Lakers are also the well-rested team in this one. While the fact that the Spurs spent the night on a New Orleans' tarmac after clinching the series is a little over-blown, they have been an average squad when playing with just one day off between games. Meanwhile, the Lakers ARE a perfect 6-2, 75% ATS when they're playing with three or more days rest. And, as far as the matchups are concerned, I expect Gasol to give Duncan fits, while defensive specialist Bruce Bowen has not had much of an impact when guarding Kobe Bryant. In fact, in their last three postseason series (Lakers won two) Bryan has averaged 26, 32, and 26 points against Bowen and San Antone. I believe game one will go to the Lakers. Los Angeles is my Wednesday night TKO.


Scott Spreitzer's MLB **Daytime** Diamond DOMINATOR! 

I'm laying the price with the Rockies on Wednesday. Lefty Jonathan Sanchez has had some serious ups and downs this season. But pitching away from home has been an absolute nightmare. In three road starts this season, Sanchez has been smacked for 14 earned runs and 24 base runners in just 13 1/3 IP. That's a horrible 9.47 ERA & 1.80 WHIP. In two of his three starts, SFO's opponents scored 12 and 13 runs. And, he's reached five full innings (exactly 5) in just one of those outings. Sanchez has been ripped in four relief appearances (no starts) in this park, and he owns a 5.68 ERA in four daytime starts this season. He'll face a Rockies' lineup that's 3-1 in four home starts against southpaws, plating 6.0 runs per game in the process. And, while Ubaldo Jimenez owns weak overall numbers, he's actually pitched well of late. In his last four starts, Jimenez owns a decent, 4.13 ERA and 1.33 WHIP. I expect another strong outing against a Giants' club that's scoring just 3.0 runs per game in away day action against righthanders. I'm laying the price with the Rockies on Wednesday afternoon.
