Boston at Oakland 

Boston is 23-7 their last 30 Saturday games and they are 7-1 their last 8 games overall. The Red Sox are 30-12 the last 42 starts made by Josh Beckett and they are 11-4 with Beckett vs. AL West foes. Beckett has a better than 7 to 1 strikeout to walk ratio in his last 3 starts and he is 15-5 his last 20 May starts. Oakland is 3-7 their last 10 games overall and they are 2-6 in Game 2 of a series. The A's are 1-6 after scoring 5 or more runs in their last game and they are 1-7 their last 8 games as underdogs. PLAY ON BOSTON w/Beckett

Arizona D-Backs vs. Atlanta Braves
Play: Arizona D-Backs     

The Arizona Diamondbacks continued their recent dominance of the Atlanta Braves last night and we'll back them to do so once again this afternoon. The D-Backs are 9-2 the last 11 meetings between these two and have won seven of their last eight there.

Randy Johnson will toe the rubber for D-Backs off one of his best outings of the season. The 44 year old lefty allowed just six hits and no earned runs in seven innings pitched in a 4-0 win over Detroit. He will be opposed by Jorge Campillo who will be pitching on just three days rest for Atlanta. Good for us because in his career he's allowed opponents a batting avg. of .346 and an OPS of .875 on three days rest. The D-Backs have struggled at the plate this year against righties, but that might be offset this afternoon with a pitcher on short rest.

The D-Backs found their offense last night erupting for five first inning runs en route to an 11-1 win. The Braves on the other hand struggled against lefty Doug Davis and will be in a tough spot when they face another southpaw this afternoon. We'll look for the D-Backs to continue their momentum and play up to their potential. Play on the Arizona Diamondbacks for 1 unit.

JIMMY SIRODY

Diamondbacks at Braves
Prediction: Under

One almost has to bet the under Saturday in the matinee matchup between the Arizona Diamondbacks and Atlanta Braves no matter what pitchers are on the mound. Arizona has been on the low side in 46 of 57 on the road when the total was between 8½ and 10 and in 25 of 32 when the number was between nine and 9½. In addition they have tumbled under in 14 of 18 when facing teams from the NL-East and in 24 of 35 day games. The NL-West leaders have averaged three runs and are hitting .214 in their last seven games prior to Friday's series opener. Atlanta has lagged under in 30 of 41 when the total is between 8½ and 10 and in 18 of 24 when it's between nine and 9½. The Braves have snuck under in 14 of their last 19 against lefties while averaging 3.7 runs per game and in 10 of their last 14 day trips to the post. Randy Johnson is fresh off seven shutout innings against Detroit at Chase Field. Jorge Campillo impressed in his first major league start last Tuesday when he blanked the New York Mets over six innings while allowing just three hits. Play the under.

JORGE GONALEZ

Giants at Marlins
Prediction: Marlins

The Florida Marlins will look to bounce back after losing to the Giants 8-2 on Friday night. Despite having one of the lowest payrolls in all of baseball, the Marlins are in first place in the National League East. The Giants are 12-25 in their last 37 games. The Giants are 3-10 as underdogs and will be facing a resilient Marlins team that is 8-3 in their last 11 games. The Giants starting pitcher Matt Cain is 2-12 on the road when the total is between 7.0 and 8.5. Take the Marlins here to outscore the Giants

Tonight I'll be on the Cubs and Jason Marquis over the Pirates and lefty Phil Dumatrait.  Chicago has amassed the NL's best record because they have won nine of 10 games against the lowly Pirates.  They have outscored Pittsburgh 69-38 in those games. 

Marquis has only two wins this season, but both have been against the Pirates, including beating Dumatrait in his last start.  He is 7-5 lifetime against Pittsburgh.  Dumatrait is now 0-2 with a 7.47 ERA in his career versus the Cubs.  Chicago is batting .305 against lefties this season.

Chicago has won five of the last six when facing a losing team.  With Marquis on the mound, the Cubs are 5-2 if listed as the favorite.  The Pirates are 1-4 the last five games played and only 8-21 the last 29 against the NL Central.

Specify the pitchers as listed and take the Cubs to the bank!

3* CHICAGO

Drew Gordon

Angels rode Joe Saunders to the win yesterday, as he pitched a 8 1/3 allowing 1 run on 3 hits, outdueling Gavin Floyd, who was also excellent. Angels are going to need more of the same tonight, but I'm not so sure Jered Weaver is the guy to do it and here's why:

While its true Weaver's career numbers against the White Sox are excellent, going 2-0 with a minuscule 0.48 ERA, including tossing 7 scoreless against them back on May 13th, his numbers on the road leave a lot to be desired. Weaver is 1-3 with an ugly 7.76 ERA on the highway, and just in case you were wondering... Yes, his win May 13th was at Angel Stadium. Now at US Cellular Field, I expect much different results, as the White Sox look to bounce back in this one.

Not only that, but he'll have very little room for error against the White Sox southpaw Joe Danks, who's 3-3 with a rock-solid 2.94 ERA on the season. Since his ugly home debut against the Twins, Danks has proceeded to lock down every opponent he's seen at US Cellular, including A's, Orioles, and lastly, a nice revenge win over the Twins May 8th.

Also, let's not forget Danks already shut down this Angels offense once this season, tossing 6 1/3 scoreless innings opposite Weaver May 13th!

Finally, while the Angels have won 4 of their last 5 games, they're still struggling mightily at the plate, batting .225 as a team over their last 10. When you consider the White Sox have been much better against righties over the same 10-game span, batting .272 against them, you've got all the makings of a solid bounce back effort here by Chicago.

They've won 8 of their last 9, and I fully expect them to get right back on track behind Danks in this one.

Take the Chicago White Sox behind Danks over the LA Angels and Weaver afternoon MLB action.

2* CHI. WHITE SOX

MICHAEL CANNON

Take the Marlins for the home win tonight over the Giants.

I know San Francisco has all the numbers here, having won three straight overall, five in a row over the Marlins and six straight road wins over Florida.

But this is one of those backwards situations that baseball will present you with every so often.

Florida is a good, young team.  They are not going to lose every single matchup to the lowly Giants.

Now, with Matt Cain starting tonight you would think that the Giants have an excellent chance at continuing their run.  It certainly appears so on paper.

But this game is played between the lines and that?s why I like the Marlins to bounce back here tonight.

Burke Badenhop will start for Florida and hes a rookie who?s had a bit of a rough start this year, but maybe that works in Floridas favor as the Giants come in a little overconfident with their streak and Cain going tonight.

Ive seen it happen many times before.

Take the Marlins as they grab the home win.

2* FLORIDA

Re: SATURDAY SERVICE PLAYS

Jack Clayton Guaranteed Selections

4* Angels at White Sox

The Angels are going to win the West with their pitching depth, defense and improving offense. Chicago starter John Danks is 2-3 his last 5 starts, one of those losses was to this Angels team. LA righty Jered Weaver has oustanding stuff and has dominated this weak hitting White Sox team, with a 2-0 record against them and a 0.48 ERA. He has a 19-3 strikeout to walk ratio against them.The underdog gets the win. Play the Angels!

Bob Harvey

Take Detroit Red Wings and Pittsburgh Penguins UNDER 5/-120 in Game One of the Stanley Cup Finals.

Defense wins titles and these are two of the top defensive teams in the league, especially in the playoffs.Goalie Chris Osgood took over for a shaky Dominik Hasek in round one and has been airtight in posting 10-2 record. Osgood has benefited from superior defensive play in front of him, facing less than 22 shots a game in the postseason, but has been right when called upon.

Goalie Marc-Andre Fleury has a 1.70 GAA and .938 save percentage after three rounds, the best in postseason. Defensemen Sergei Gonchar and Brooks Orpik will likely draw the assignment of containing Detroit?s big line and have met every challenge to date. Most of the other Pittsburgh defensemen are talented, yet inexperienced, especially playing on this stage. Fleury and the Pens defense have often been able to play with a lead.
