JIMMY THE MOOSE

Cleveland Indians at Detroit Tigers
Prediction: Detroit Tigers

Reason: Both team's have been major disappointment's so far this season. The Indians are 4-11 in their last 15 road games. Cleveland is 6-14 in their last 20 games played on grass. In their last 12 games vs. a team with a losing record the Indians are 2-10. The Tigers are 6-2 in their last 8 games as a favorite. The Tigers are 6-2 in their last 8 games vs. a left-handed starter. Detroit is 22-7 in Rogers last 29 home starts. In his last 10 home starts vs. a team with a losing record the Tigers are 7-3. Look for the Tigers bats to wake up tonight and win this. Play on the Detroit Tigers

MATT RIVERS

For Saturday take the price back with the Mariners.

Of course the Red Sox at Fenway Park are the definite superior team but with David Ortiz out, Manny Ramirez banged up and possibly out as well and Jason Varitek not starting because he never catches the knuckleballer in Tim Wakefield why not take a price back here!

Miguel Batista could get hit hard but he is also a professional hurler who has stuck around the bigs for awhile and could be at least serviceable here.

Seattle has been a huge disappointment this season but there is still a decent amount of talent on the M's. Ichiro, Sexson, Beltre, Lopez and the others can win this game as the atritioned Red Sox are far from being at 100%. Plus Boston has been unreal at home this season and will lose a game or two there as we saw on Friday night.

As long as Batista holds his own, with the Putz hanging around in the pen, I'll take my chances at this price for sure with a Seattle team that is extremely due to win a few games as they are just too good to have the record they have

JAKE TIMLIN

Saturday selection is the Arizona Diamondbacks.

Despite last night?s losing freebie I have still won 5 of my last 6 complimentary winners to completely have you covered on the diamond as I look for the Diamondbacks to get us back into the win column. Why the love for an Arizona team who is struggling right now? Well thanks to the Diamondbacks going with their number 2 man in Haren I look for the righty to follow up Webb?s dominating performance last night with a strong outing tonight against a Pittsburgh team that has lost 11 of the last 15 games against Arizona. Also helping out is the fact that the Pirates are in big trouble tonight with Gorzelanny starting as the lefty has ERA?s of 7.22 for the year and 9.26 over his last three starts. Flat out even thought the Diamondbacks offense has been struggling of late they wont tonight as I look for Arizona to pound the Pirates pitching for what will be an easy road victory.

All Arizona tonight!

TONY WESTON

Well, Im coming at it again and I dont plan on losing. Were sticking with some American League baseball, but going out East and across the border as the Orioles will get over on the Blue Jays in Toronto.

So far this season the Orioles are 2-1 in three meetings against the Jays, including a 6-5 victory last night.

That win also put Baltimore 4-1 its last five, including a 3-1 mark on the road in that stretch. The Jays, on the other hand, are 1-5 their last six games.

Now Toronto gets a shot at under-rated Orioles pitcher Jeremy Guthrie, who is only 2-6, but has a 3.58 ERA. Over his last five starts Guthrie hasnt allowed more than three earned runs in a single game. And against American League East beasts Boston, New York and Tampa in each of his last three starts he?s only given up six total earned runs in 20 innings of work. He?s also struck out 14, while walking only four.

Today, hell shut down the Jays, too. Pencil in Guthrie as your starting pitcher and take Baltimore on the road.

3* ORIOLES

SPORTS GAMBLING HOTLINE

Tonight we think the price is very cheap on Arizona with Haren as the Diamondbacks continue their weekend series in Steel Town

Arizona held on for a 3-1 win last night, and we see no reason they can't win tonight by a similar score.

Dan Haren has yet to win on the road at 0-3, but he is coming off a strong effort at home in his last start, as he shut down the Nationals tossing 7 scoreless frames for the win
Tom Gorzelanny may be 3-1 at home this year, but his home ERA is over 5, and his ERA for the season is over 7

We like the Diamondbacks to make it 2 in a row over the Pirates.

Play on 'Zona.

4* ARIZONA

Re: SATURDAY SERVICE PLAYS

DREW GORDON

Good value here with the Rockies at home and starting to play well, winners of 3 straight, including yesterday's 6-4 victory over the Brewers. Colorado has their pitching staff to thank over their modest 3-game win streak, and I say they'll get another strong effort tonight, as Greg Reynolds gets the start in this one.

While its true Reynolds remains winless on the season, that in and of itself is a strong motivator for the young righty, who'll be looking to bounce back hard tonight at home after a couple tough games on the road. The numbers back my claim, as Reynolds has posted a solid 3.00 ERA at Coors, as opposed to his 7.71 ERA away! Note, his best game of the season was at Coor, tossing 6 scoreless against the Twins back on May 17th.

I know its tempting to look over Dave Bush's last two starts and instantly declare him the winner here, but that would be a mistake. For anyone who's followed Bush this season, you know damn well he's a liability on the road, going 0-4 with a 7.67 ERA. He got rocked in Pittsburgh in his last one away, getting tagged for 6 runs on 9 hits over 5 innings! Although the Rockies aren't swinging the bats particularly well, they have hit righties well at Coors, batting .270 and averaging 4.5 runs per game in that spot.

Bottom line, look for the Rockies to build off yesterday's win and extend their modest winning streak with another strong effort tonight. I expect Reynolds to respond well to coming back home, while trusting Bush on the road is an excercise in futility! Rockies roll in this one!

Take Colorado behind Reynolds over Milwaukee and Bush in this MLB match up.

3* COLORADO

JOHN MARTIN

1 Unit on Texas Rangers +100

The Texas Rangers are 11-2 against the money line vs. a starting pitcher whose gives up 7 or more hits/start this season. Andy Sonnanstine is in line for his worst start of the season against a very hot Rangers? lineup Saturday. Sonnanstine is 0-2 with a 6.48 ERA over his last 3 starts. This bodes well for the Rangers who are scoring 8.3 runs per game over their last 7 ball games. Scott Feldman has been brilliant at home, going 1-0 with a 2.52 ERA through 4 home starts in 2008. Sonnanstine is 0-2 with a 6.75 ERA in 2 lifetime starts against Texas, including a 12-6 setback to the Rangers already this season. Texas is 31-10 against the money line in home games after batting .315 or better over a 15 game span since 1997. The Rangers are one of the most dangerous teams in the big leagues when they get their bats going for an extended period of time. Cash in with the Rangers Saturday.

Re: SATURDAY SERVICE PLAYS

JOHN FINA 

Selection: Tampa Bay/Texas Over 10.5 

Today we see many runs being scored as the Tampa Bay Rays do battle with the Texas Rangers. One reason why we see many runs being scored is because both these teams will be sending to the mound starting pitchers who have been struggling as of late. This says it all... The Tampa Bay Rays Starting Pitcher (Andy Sonnanstine) has a 6.48 ERA in his last 3 starts, while Texas Rangers Starting Pitcher (Scott Feldman) has a 6.50 ERA in his last 3 starts. In addition, these teams have a history of scoring many runs when they meet. In fact, the Over is 9-3-1 in the last 13 meetings between these teams (when playing in Texas). We expect to see another high-scoring game today! Take the Tampa Bay Rays/Texas Rangers Over 10.5!

MATT FARGO

San Francisco Giants vs. Washington Nationals
Play: San Francisco Giants   

The Giants took Game One last night in Washington behind a strong pitching performance from Tim Lincecum as well as a big night with the bats. San Francisco is hitting the ball a lot better and it continued last night with 10 runs. The Giants are 9-6 over their last 15 games as the pitching has allowed three runs or fewer in eight of those games while the offense has scored six or more runs in eight as well. San Francisco has won seven of its last nine road games.

Washington went down in a big way again as the struggles continue. The Nationals are 5-11 over their last 16 games and their 14-18 record at home is certainly nothing to be proud of. The offense exploded for 10 runs in Game Two of a doubleheader against the Cardinals Thursday but that effort is surrounded by five games where a total of three runs were scored. Washington is hitting .233 on the season including .234 at home, both of which are dead last in all of baseball.

Lincecum got a fair price last night and Jonathan Sanchez is getting an extraordinary price here. Sanchez has allowed two or less runs in his last four starts, posting a 2.77 ERA over that span. Pitching on the road was erratic early on in the season but his last two road starts were solid efforts in Colorado and Arizona, two hitters ballparks. Washington is hitting just .235 on the season against left-handed pitching and is 2-8 in its last 10 games against a southpaw starter.

The Nationals counter with Shawn Hill who has been inconsistent this season. Only two of his eight starts have been quality outings and he is coming off his worst start of the season at Arizona where he allowed five runs in just four innings. Those two quality efforts came in his last two home starts but this is just his second home start since April and his offense has been slow to back him, averaging just 2.8 rpg over his last six starts. The Nationals are 0-5 in Hills last five starts. Play San Francisco Giants 1.5 Units

Re: SATURDAY SERVICE PLAYS

Priceless Picks

1 Unit on San Francisco Giants +113

The Giants dominated 10-1 yesterday and I like them again today behind Sanchez.  The Giants are 4-0 in their last 4 road games and 6-1 in their last 7 games as a road underdog.  The Giants are 9-2 in Sanchez's last 11 starts, 8-2 in Sanchez's last 10 starts as an underdog, and 5-0 in Sanchez's last 5 starts following a Quality Start in his last appearance.  The Nationals are 0-5 in Hill's last 5 starts, 0-7 in Hill's last 7 starts vs. the National League West, and 1-6 in Hill's last 7 starts following a team loss in their previous game.  The Nats have not been getting the job done behind Hill.  Take the Giants.

1* on Detroit Tigers -103

Cleveland is 11-20 (-15.9 Units) against the money line when playing against a team with a losing record this season.  Cleveland is 2-8 (-8.5 Units) against the money line vs. terrible speed teams - averaging 0.35 or less SB's/game this season.  Kenny Rogers is 33-9 (+18.2 Units) against the money line in home games when playing against a bad team (Win Pct. 38% to 46%) since 1997.  Rogers rarely loses in this spot and he won’t be losing to the rival Indians Saturday.  Rogers is undefeated with a 2.79 ERA over his last 3 starts for the Tigers.  Aaron Laffey is 0-1 with a 7.50 ERA on the road in 2 road starts in 2008.  The Tigers will bounce back after getting beat by Cleveland yesterday.  Take the Tigers on the Money Line.

Info Plays

1 Unit on Royals/Yankees OVER 8.5 Runs

The Royals have been a deadly OVERS teams at this number, especially with Bannister on the hill.  The same goes for the Yankees.  The Over is 7-3 in the Royals last 10 road games with the total set at 7.0-8.5 and  7-0 in Bannister's last 7 road starts with the total set at 7.0-8.5.  The Over is 4-0 in Bannister's last 4 road starts period.  The Over is 5-0 in the Yankees last 5 home games with the total set at 7.0-8.5 and 5-0 in the Yankees last 5 games with the total set at 7.0-8.5 period.  The Over is a dominant 26-7-3 in the Yankees last 36 games vs. a team with a winning % below .400.  We'll follow the numbers to an Overs winner here.

1 Unit on Rays/Rangers OVER 10.5 

16 runs were put on the board between these two teams yesterday and I like them to put up another big number tonight. The Over is 7-0 in the Rangers last 7 overall, 6-0 in the Rangers last 6 home games with the total set at 9.0-10.5, 6-0 in the Rangers last 6 games a home underdog, and 7-0 in the Rangers last 7 home games vs. a team with a losing road record.  The Over is also 23-6-2 in the Rangers last 31 games following a loss.  You could say that the Rangers are an OVERS machine right now.  The total has gone Over the number in 9 of the last 13 meetings in this matchup and is 9-3-1 Over in the last 13 meetings in Texas .  For good measure, the Over is 4-1 in the Rays last 5 vs. the American League West.  Bet the OVER!

AL FREE B's FOR SAT

MINNESOTA +150 on ML over Chicago--Livan Hernandez ends the White Sox win streak at 4 games.  Chicago has scored 31 runs during their run at home.  Buehrle take another loss for the ChiSox.  The Twins need this one because they've fallen 3 1/2 games behind the Sox in the AL Central

Texas +105 on ML over Tampa--Kazmir got the win Friday night in Arlington.  Andy Sonnanstine has dropped two straight starts for Tampa and I'm on Scott Feldman in the upset here.

Oakland -110 on ML over LA Angels--Garland gets knocked off my Greg Smith at the Coliseum, ending the Angels win streak at 6 games.  Smith pitched a three hitter against the Angels the last time he faced them, but didn't get the win as he lost to Joe Saunders.  This time he wins !

NL FREE B's FOR SAT

Florida -120 on ML over Cincy--Scott Olsen beats Bronson Arroyo in South Florida.  Cincy has won 7 straight against the Marlins dating back to last year, but that all ends tonight.  Arroyo is 0-1 in six games and three starts vs the Marlins.  The Reds had 17 hits Friday night.

MILWAUKEE -110 on ML over Colorado--Dave Bush ends the Rockies three game win streak.  Greg Reynolds starts for Colorado and he's 0-3 with a 5.72 ERA.  TAKE THE OVER 10 RUNS.  The Brew Crew have won 6 of 7 but had their win streak at 6 stopped Friday night.

METS -140 on ML over Padres--Perez stops the bleeding for NY in San Diego.  He's been aweful lately for NY though.  His control is the problem once again.  TAKE THE OVER 8.5 RUNS.  New York lost the first two games of the series already.  The Padres have won three straight games by a 2-1 count. I think Perez will give up plenty of runs but the METS bats will be the difference here.

Re: SATURDAY SERVICE PLAYS

LT Profits

Chicago Cubs -125

Carlos Zambrano of the Chicago Cubs and Derek Lowe of the Los Angeles Dodgers are both in fine form, but Lowe is the more likely of the two to implode at a moment’s notice.

Yes, Lowe has a 1.23 ERA and 0.86 WHIP in his last three starts, but consistency has never been a strong suit for him and has had four consecutive poor starts prior to this hot stretch. Lowe has always been a bit fragile on the mound when things are not going his way, and you simply never know which pitcher is going to show up.

On the other hand, Zambrano has been more consistent, posting eight Quality Starts in his 10 outings, allowing three runs but going only five innings in one of the other starts and allowing four runs in the last one. Perhaps most importantly, he has pitched exceptionally well at Dodger Stadium, allowing grand total of three earned runs and 15 hits over 29.2 innings in his last four starts here.

The Dodgers quieted the hot Cubs bats in a 3-0 LA win last night, but look for Chicago to rebound nicely tonight.

Pick: Cubs -125


Philadelphia Phillies +105

The Philadelphia Phillies rallied for a 10-inning win over the Atlanta Braves here last night after tying the game in the ninth inning, and we look for the Phillies to win their second straight game in this series tonight.

Sure, the Braves are an incredible 25-9 at home, but two of those losses have come in the last three games with the bullpen faltering in the ninth inning on both occasions. Atlanta starter Jo-Jo Reyes was not treated kindly in his only other start vs. Philadelphia this season, as he was lit up for five earned runs and 11 hits in 6.2 innings. Given the performance of what had previously been a good bullpen lately, a similar performance here would almost certainly mean defeat.

Now Kyle Kendrick has five Quality Starts in his last seven outings, excluding one start vs. Toronto where he was pulled after the first inning due to a long rain delay. More importantly, he has allowed three runs or less in all three of his starts vs. Atlanta since the start of last year, including a Quality Start this season in Philadelphia last month. Also, unlike the Atlanta bullpen, the Phillies are showing no signs of regression, in fact leading the Major Leagues with a 2.69 pen ERA.

Do not forget also that the Phillies have been just as hot as the more highly publicized Chicago Cubs lately, as Philadelphia is 10-2 in their last 12 games, and we look for them to expand on that today.

Pick: Phillies +105
