Re: Wednesday Service Plays

Matt Fargo

Houston Astros @ Pittsburgh Pirates
PICK: Houston Astros

REASON FOR PICK: The Astros were able to snap a five-game losing streak on Tuesday thanks to a solid pitching performance. The offense however was held in check yet again as they have scored two runs or fewer in six straight games. The offense was red hot prior to that and tonight could very well be the night that it comes back to life. Even with that recent skid, Houston is three games over .500 and is very well in the race for the Wild Card even though the season is young.

Pittsburgh lost for the 12 times in its last 20 games after coming off a six-game winning streak which was its best run of the season. Offensively this team has improved dramatically but coming off a goose egg last night and facing tonight’s starter is going to keep it down once again. The bullpen has been the strength as the starting pitching has been hammered pretty hard, posting a 5.56 ERA over its last 10 games. Because of that, the bullpen has seen extensive innings and will eventually get burned out.

The starter referenced to earlier was Roy Oswalt. It has been a disappointing season for Oswalt who has a 5.45 ERA on the season. He started slow with three straight non-quality starts before putting together six straight quality outings. His last two starts are ones to forget but he is that top tiered pitcher who is in a play on situation based on those two poor performances. Add to that his domination of the Pirates as he is 11-5 with a 2.45 ERA and in 21 starts. This includes six straight starts of one run or fewer allowed.

Zach Duke has been hot and cold this season and the cold seems to be taking over. His ERA sits at 4.41 which is ok for a middle of the road starter but it is impossible to look past his 1.59 WHIP which is third worst in the National League among qualified starters. That ratio juts out to 1.68 in his five home starts where the Pirates are 2-3 on the season. Houston is hitting .294 on the season against left-handed starters while Duke is 0-3 with a 4.08 ERA in six career starts against the Astros. Play Houston Astros 1.5 Units

Vegas Experts

Chicago Cubs at San Diego Padres

Not sure why the oddsmakers continue to undervalue the red-hot Cubs in this series. Last night's 9-6 was the team's ninth consecutive victory while the Padres have now dropped three straight. Chicago starter Ted Lilly has owned the Padres winning all four of his starts against them and is backed by the far superior offense, one that scores two more full runs per game than does San Diego. Cubs are 16-2 vs. the NL West this season while the Padres are a staggering 9-23 in the dog role.

Play on: Chicago Cubs

Re: Wednesday Service Plays

John Ryan

Florida Marlins vs. Atlanta Braves
Play: OVER

Ai Simulator 3* graded play OVER Atlanta/Florida – AiS shows an 80% probability that 10 or more runs will be scored in this game. Supporting this graded play is a system that has gone 142-84 and has made 52.9 units since 2002. Play over with NL home teams where the total is 9 to 9.5 with a starting pitcher whose strikes out 3 or less batters per start and with a team on base percentage of .350 or better on the season. Both starters not in strong form. Glavine has posted a 8.80 and a 2.021 WHIP in 4 day starts while Hendrickson has posted a 9.90 ERA and a 2.100 WHIP in 2 day starts. Florida is 7-0 OVER (+7.3 Units) in road games versus a good bullpen whose ERA is 3.75 or better this season; 10-3 OVER (+7.2 Units) versus teams who strand 7.5 or more runners on base per game this season; 19-5 OVER after batting 240 or worse over a 10 game span. Florida has gone over in 9 of the past 11 games with the other two games pushes. Many amateurs would reason that the Marlins are due to go UNDER and that may be a big mistake. Note that Florida is 18-5 OVER after 8 or more consecutive OVERS since 1997. Take the OVER.

Re: Wednesday Service Plays

JOHN FINA

Selection: San Diego Padres +105

Reason: Put us down on the San Diego Padres (+105) for our Free MLB Selection on Wednesday. Today the Chicago Cubs will be on the road as they take on the San Diego Padres. We will side with the San Diego Padres. One reason why we will side with the San Diego Padres is because they will be sending to the mound the starting pitcher who has been pitching a lot better as of late. This says it all... The Chicago Cubs Starting Pitcher (Ted Lilly) has a 6.28 ERA in his last 3 starts, while San Diego Padres Starting Pitcher (Greg Maddux) has a 2.76 ERA in his last 3 starts. As you can see, the San Diego Padres will be sending to the mound the much better starting pitcher. In addition, the San Diego Padres have proven they can beat the Chicago Cubs (when playing in San Diego). In fact, the San Diego Padres are 6-3 in their last 9 meetings against the Chicago Cubs (when playing in San Diego). We see the San Diego Padres getting another win tonight! Take the San Diego Padres!

Re: Wednesday Service Plays

WUNDERDOG

Game: Florida at Atlanta
Pick: Game Total UNDER 10

Atlanta has already played in 31 games where they have scored four runs or less. They also have a pitching staff that does not give up too many runs at 3.58. Their bullpen has been outstanding as well, as they have pitched to a 3.20 ERA. Tom Glavine has already pitched seven games out of 10 allowing two runs or less. Mark Hendrickson has had a couple of bad outings including a 10 earned run effort last time out, but overall he has pitched 8 of 12 allowing three runs or less. Both of these pitchers have had a bad outing or two that makes this number an attractive UNDER when looking at the entire body of work. The Marlin pen is also top 10, entering with a 3.48 ERA. UNDER gets the call here.

TONY MATHEWS

Cincinnati Reds vs. Philadelphia Phillies

Selection: Cincinnati Reds -105

The Cincinnati Reds will use starting pitcher Edinson Volquez. Edinson Volquez has pitched well this season. In fact, Edinson Volquez has a 1.46 ERA on the season. We see Edinson Volquez pitching another great game today.

The Philadelphia Phillies will use starting pitcher Brett Myers. Brett Myers has struggled this season. In fact, Brett Myers has a 5.52 ERA on the season. We see Brett Myers pitching another bad game today.

The bottom line, the Cincinnati Reds should be able to get the win today.

Take the Cincinnati Reds!

MINNESOTA

Baltimore is 37-73 (-27.4 Units) against the money line when playing against a team with a winning record over the last 2 seasons and they are 41-68 (-30.1 Units)against left-handed starters over the last 3. Minnesota has had Baltimore's number over the past couple of years, going 13-3 (+10.9 Units) against the Orioles in their last 16 matchups.

JASON LOWRY

STL CARDINALS

We are going with the red birds in this one after a very tough loss last night to the Pirates. LOHSE is 15-4 against the money line when the money line is -100 to -150 over the last 2 seasons. We like our chances in this one with a really good Cardinals team taking on the last place Nationals. The smart play is on St. Louis!

Re: Wednesday Service Plays

JAKE TIMLIN

Wednesday selection is the Colorado Rockies.

Even though the Rockies cost me money last night I had Colorado circled this afternoon to get a win thanks to Aaron Cook. After all with the Dodgers struggles just as bad as Colorado having lost 9 of their last 12 overall games I completely see today?s match up coming down to pitching where the Rockies have the advantage. Giving Colorado the edge is Cook and his sinker ball which has resulted in a 7-3 record with an ERA of 3.36. Meanwhile for the Dodgers they turn to Kershaw who is making his 3rd career start after getting lit up for 4 run in 3.2 inning of work in his last start. Flat out runs in Los Angeles are hard to come by to start with and with Cook on the hill the Dodgers will struggle while the Rockies will get to the rookie. So starting the day off with a winner take the Rockies plus the road money.

Re: Wednesday Service Plays

JEFF BENTON

Boston is simply amazing at Fenway Park, now 22-5 on the season after last nights 7-4 victory over Tampa Bay. With that win, the Red Sox improved to 4-0 against Tampa Bay at home this year, with the victories coming by margins of 3, 3, 4 and 8 runs just one blowout after another. In fact, of Bostons 22 victories at Fenway this season, 15 have been of the multi-run variety. Also, ace Josh Beckett has made three starts at home this year, winning all three while getting an average of 9 runs of support from his offense in those three victories.

Beckett has been sharp his last two times out, giving up two runs in each contest, both on the road at Oakland and Baltimore. And his four career victories over Tampa Bay have been by 4, 11, 7 and 8 runs. As for Tampa Bay starter Edwin Jackson, hes certainly been a nice surprise this season. However, Fenway Park has been a house of horrors for the right-hander, as he?s 0-2 with an 8.47 ERA in three starts, all since last season.
Throw in the fact that the Rays are now 9-43 in their last 52 games at Fenway and just 11-13 on the highway this season, and I cant help but see this as another easy multi-run win for the defending champs.

3* RED SOX -1½ runs

TONY WESTON

Were getting right tonight as we focus on some American League action between the Los Angeles Angels and Seattle Mariners. These teams are playing in the Emerald City and the Halos will come out on top just as they did the first two meetings of this series.

The Angels come into this game having won four straight and having gone 11-4 their last 15 games. The Halos are also 6-2 their last eight road games and are 5-1 against the Mariners their last six meetings.

The Mariners come into tonights game 3-11 their last 14 games and have gone 3-5 their last eight home games, including three straight losses.

Itll be another loss for Seattle tonight. Take the Angels on the road.

3* ANGELS

Re: Wednesday Service Plays

Al McMordie

At 8:10pm our selection is on the Baltimore Orioles and Minnesota Twins 'under' the total. After Tuesday night, no matter what happens this season with the Orioles, they can now at least say that they have beaten the Twins in '08. That may not sound like a lot, but after having gone 0-7 against them in 2007, it might just give Baltimore the boost they need to get back into contention. After all, it's not like the O's got blanked by one of 2007's better teams: the Twins were 89-93 last season. This year I think it's safe to say that Baltimore is a little bit better, and Minnesota is a little bit worse than in '07, and chances are that neither team will be in contention come the end of September. But one thing both squads have to like seeing is the performances of their young pitching staffs. Tonight's Baltimore starter, 6'7" Daniel Cabrera isn't exactly young anymore, but he finally seems to be putting together the quality season that everyone thought he could. The Twins have four twenty-something starters in Blackburn, Slowey, Bonser, and tonight's starter, righthander Glen Perkins to go with their ageless wonder Livan Hernandez. The only one of this young quartet that isn't performing at or above expectations right now is Bonser, and it appears he'll be moved to the bullpen to try and get him straightened out when another youngster, Scott Baker, comes off the DL. So both teams have some good, young pitching, but not a lot going on offensively right now. The under is 8-3 in the last eleven meetings between these two in Minnesota, and I look for another low-scoring game in the Metrodome tonight. Take the 'under'

GINA

Detroit Tigers at Oakland Athletics

The Tigers have lost six of their last nine games and have been awful away from home, just four wins in its last 17 road games. Meanwhile, the Athletics have won eight of their last 12 and have won seven of its last nine games at home.

Detroit's lefthander Nate Robertson (3-5, 5.92), is 3-3 with a 5.12 ERA in seven career starts against the Athletics.

Oakland's right-hander Justin Duchscherer (4-4, 2.27 ERA) is 2-2 with a 3.18 ERA in nine career outings against the Tigers, but will make his first career start them.

Go with the A's for a three-game sweep against the Tigers. Oakland has won six of the last 7 games against Detroit at McAfee Coliseum and has won four of Justin Duchscherer last 5 home starts. Detroit has dropped four of Nate Robertson last 5 road starts versus Oakland.

Oakland Athletics -130
