Re: SUNDAY SERVICE PLAYS
Scott Spreitzer's 25* MLB SUNDAY SLAMMER! (Won GS on Sat.!)
I'm laying the price with the Astros on Sunday. Wandy Rodriguez of Houston has been terrific at home throughout his short career. This season, he's been virtually unhittable! Wandy has an ERA of 0.98 in Houston, with a WHIP of 0.93. He faced St. Louis on this field earlier this season, and threw 7 1/3 scoreless innings with six strikeouts. Kyle Lohse of St. Louis has struggled on the road. His ERA away from home is 5.18, with a poor WHIP of 1.73. The offenses cancel out here, with both teams scoring a shade over 4.5 runs per game, overall. And, I expect Lohse's struggles to be just what the doc ordered for the Astro bats. That being said, Albert Pujols is battling a bad calf for the Cards. He may even take a seat in a day game after a night game. Whether he does or not, Houston should have an edge on offense in that light, to go with their dominant edge on the mound with Rodriguez. Also note that Houston was 13-4 its prior 17 home games entering the weekend. It all adds up to a potential blowout at a very cheap moneyline. The Astros minus the price is the play.

STU FINER'S 250,000 STAR LOCK OF THE YEAR
250,000 DIME NBA Finals Game 2 Parlay L.A. LAKERS and OVER
The Lakers will not be held to just 15 fourth quarter points like they were in Game 1. Instead, Kobe & Co., will have their triangle offense clicking and they will score this win and cover as it goes over the posted total. Kobe’s 9 for 26 shooting on Thursday night had less to do with the Celtics tough defense and more to do with Kobe having one of those rare off nights. He was getting good looks, the ball just wasn’t going through the hoop for him. That will change this evening. The Lakers will be scoring in bunches tonight and the Celtics will be hard-pressed to keep track. And L.A.’s bench will respond with a much better effort after Sasha Vujacic, Jordan Farmar, Ronny Turiaf and Luke Walton combined for just 15 points on 5-of-15 shooting. Those guys are going to show tonight. L.A. also attempts around 21 three-pointers a game but got off only 14 treys Thursday. They’ll shoot more and make more tonight. L.A. didn’t play well in Game 1, but
still led at the break by five points and had their chances in the fourth. They won’t be as jittery tonight. There are plenty of trends that point to the under, but that’s just giving us good value with the total. The Lakers own four road victories this postseason, so they know how to win on the highway. They don’t want to go down 2-0 in the series and they won’t. Kobe will play like the league MVP that he is and the Lakers will eclipse 100 points in helping this game get over the posted number
