FRIDAY SERVICE PLAYS

Re: FRIDAY SERVICE PLAYS

JOHN FINA

Selection: Colorado Rockies +105

Today the Colorado Rockies will be on the road as they take on the Detroit Tigers. We will side with the Colorado Rockies! One reason why we will side with the Colorado Rockies is because they will be sending to the mound the much better starting pitcher. This says it all... The Colorado Rockies Starting Pitcher (Ubaldo Jimenez) has a 1.35 ERA in his last 3 starts, while Detroit Tigers Starting Pitcher (Eddie Bonine) has a 5.84 ERA in his last 3 starts. As you can see, the Colorado Rockies will have the much better starting pitcher on the mound. In addition, the Colorado Rockies have proven they can beat the Detroit Tigers. In fact, the Colorado Rockies are 7-1 in their last 8 meetings against the Detroit Tigers. We see the Colorado Rockies getting another win tonight! Take the Colorado Rockies!

TOM FREESE

Atlanta Braves at Toronto Blue Jays
Prediction: Atlanta Braves

Reason: Atlanta is 23-8 when playing off an off day. The Braves are 6-1 im=n the last 7 starts made by Jair Jurrjens and they are 4-0 when Jurrjens starts Game 1 of a series. Toronto starter Dustin McGowan is off a phony win in his last start where he allowed twice as many baserunners as innings pitched and still came away with the win. Toronto is 3-8 their last 11 Interleague games and they are 2-6 their last 8 games as favorites. PLAY ON ATLANTA +

Re: FRIDAY SERVICE PLAYS

TONY MATHEWS 

Chicago Cubs vs. Chicago White Sox
Selection: Chicago Cubs -115

The Chicago Cubs will use starting pitcher Ryan Dempster. Ryan Dempster has pitched well this season. In fact, Ryan Dempster has a 2.63 ERA on the season. In addition, Ryan Dempster has a 1.64 ERA in his last 3 starts. We see Ryan Dempster pitching another great game today.

The Chicago White Sox will use starting pitcher Jose Contreras. Jose Contreras been having huge pitching problems as of late. In fact, Jose Contreras has a 10.12 ERA in his last 3 starts. We see Jose Contreras having another bad game today.

The Chicago Cubs have had long term success against the Chicago White Sox. In fact, the Chicago Cubs are 9-1 in their last 10 meetings against the Chicago White Sox.

Take the Chicago Cubs!

Matty O'Shea

CWS -110 vs CHC

Analysis: Lou Piniella is 8-1 against the South Siders during his career on the North Side, and you can bet Ozzie Guillen is not happy about it. His pitching staff got back on track though by taking two of three at LA following last weekend's devastating sweep by the Cubs at Wrigley, holding the Dodgers to one run combined in the wins and getting blanked in the loss. Jose Contreras got bombed in last Saturday's 11-7 rout, surrendering nine runs - including three homers - in just 3.1 innings. But Contreras has pitched better at home with a 3-3 mark and 3.04 ERA, and the Sox are 12-2 in their last 14 at U.S. Cellular Field. While Ryan Dempster has pitched very well on the road for the Cubs with a 2.48 ERA, he remains winless at 0-2. The Cubs also have obviously not performed nearly as well on the road with a 16-20 mark and have some lineup issues at the top of the order with Reed Johnson on the DL and Kosuke Fukudome bothered by a calf injury. This proved to be a big problem in Thursday's 11-4 home loss to the Orioles, and I expect it to be a serious issue here in this series.

Robert Ross

Chicago Cubs at Chicago White Sox
Prediction: Chicago Cubs

Going with the Northsiders here who swept the short-handed ChiSox last weekend at Wrigley. The Cubs are 14-3 against the money line vs. a very good bullpen whose WHIP is 1.250 or better this season and starter DEMPSTER is 46-30 against the money line vs. poor baserunning teams - averaging 0.5 or less SB's/game since 1997. (Team's Record) Meanwhile the White Sox are 29-47 against the money line vs. a good bullpen whose ERA is 3.75 or better over the last 2 seasons and 17-39 against the money line vs. teams who strand 7.5 or more runners on base per game over the last 2 seasons. Take the Cubs!

Re: FRIDAY SERVICE PLAYS

VEGAS EXPERTS

Atlanta Braves at Toronto Blue Jays

Look for these two teams to stay Under tonight as both fall into familiar roles that would dictate such a result. Atlanta, not a very good road team to begin with, is 28-9 Under this season away from home, not to mention 20-4 Under in the underdog role. Meanwhile, Toronto starter Dustin McGowan is a PERFECT 10-0 Under as a home favorite. Armed with those trends, we have to expect a low scoring affair.

Play on: Under

LA Angels @ LA Dodgers
Play On: 1* LA Angels -125

LA Dodgers are 13-28 last 3 years in Inter-League play. LA Angels have won 5 of their last 6 games overall. LA Dodgers have lost 4 of their last 6 games overall. LA Angels bullpen has a 2.86 ERA on the road this season. LA Dodgers are scoring only 4.1 runs per game at home this year. Saunders is 11-3 with a 3.03 ERA overall this year and 6-1 with a 1.89 ERA on the road this season. Saunders is 1-0 with a 2.46 ERA overall vs LA Dodgers since 1997 while Park has a 5.75 ERA overall vs LA Angels since 1997. We'll recommend a small play on the LA Angels tonight!

Milwaukee Brewers at Minnesota Twins

Minnesota has won 11 of their last 12 games, last six at home and has beaten Milwaukee in five of the last 7 in Minnesota.

Twins' right-hander Nick Blackburn (6-4, 3.68) is 4-2 with a 2.20 ERA in seven starts at home. He has never faced Milwaukee.

Brewers' right-hander Seth McClung (5-3, 3.79 ERA) is 3-1 with a 2.55 ERA in his last fours starts and is 1-2 with a 7.53 ERA in four outings, including three starts versus the Twins.

Minnesota is 12-3 against the NL. Go with the hot Twins tonight at the Metrodome. The Brewers have lost their last 4 interleague games on the road.

Minnesota Twins -125

LAA Angels vs. Los Angeles Dodgers     
Play: LAA Angels   

For tonight's free play we're going to use the Angels which just missed making our premium ticket. The Angels are clicking to the tune of 60% this season which is among the best in the Majors. Interestingly enough, they have played better on the road then at home! They are 26-13 on the road this year. They have won 10 of 12 games and beaten the Dodgers 9 out of the last 11, outscoring them 63-22. To top it off, they send Joe Saunders to the hill with an 11-3 record against Chan Ho Park who is just 5-7 against the Angels with a 5.75 era. This is a nice spot for a small play on the Angels at a fair price.

Re: FRIDAY SERVICE PLAYS

Larry Ness Las Vegas Insider

My Las Vegas Insider is on the Tor Blue Jays at 7:05 ET.

Bobby Cox hired Cito Gaston as his hitting coach way back in the early 80s, when Cox was managing the Toronto Blue Jays. In 1992, the Braves (managed by Cox) and the Blue Jays (now managed by Gaston) met in the World Series, with the Blue Jays winning. What goes around comes around. Cox has been a longtime stalwart in Atlanta and Gaston, fired years ago by the Blue Jays, is back as their manager. After the Blue Jays had dropped 13 of 17 games (May 31-June 19), manager John Gibbons was let go and Cito Gaston was brought in as the replacement. Toronto has been one of MLB's lowest scoring teams all season (4.18 RPG) and had really been struggling during its 17-game slide, averaging 3.76 per. Gaston knows something about hitting, so maybe he can help. After losing his first two games as Toronto's manager (1-0 and 6-3 at Pittsburgh), Gaston has led the Blue Jays to THREE wins in their last four games, as the team has scored 34 runs (8.5 per). Cox and the Braves visit Gaston and the Blue Jays tonight in the Rogers Centre, as interleague play concludes this weekend. The Braves are far from healthy, as outfielders Mark Kotsay and Matt Diaz are currently on the DL plus SS Yunel Escobar sat out the team's last game (Wednesday at Milwaukee) and his backup (Omar Infante) strained his hamstring during the game and had to leave the contest. Chipper Jones, who is batting .394, is not ready to return to third base but the Braves are hopeful he can DH this weekend. All in all, it's not a very bright picture for a team that owns MLB's biggest home/away dichotomy this year. The Braves are 28-14 (plus-$974) in Atlanta but a pathetic 11-27 (minus-$1,795). That's a difference of 30 games and $2,770 vs the moneyline, a discrepancy larger than any team in MLB in '08. Jair Jurrjens takes the mound for Atlanta and his blister problems look to be over. He struggled in late May, going a three-start stretch in which he allowed 10 ERs over 15 innings (6.00 ERA). He has not allowed an ER in either of his last two starts (13.2 innings) and with Atlanta winning both games, he's 7-2 with a 3.20 ERA on the season (team is 10-5). I like this guy but let's note that his ERA is 1 1/2 runs higher on the road (3.98) than it is at home (2.49), where he's 5-0 in eight starts (team is 8-0). Dustin McGowan goes for the Jays and after doing little in two seasons for Toronto, made 27 starts last year, going a respectable 12-10 with a 4.08 ERA (team was 13-14). He's gone 4-1 with a 4.21 ERA over his last six starts (team is 4-2), giving him a 6-5 mark with a 4.21 ERA on the season in 16 starts (7-9). However, one can't ignore the fact that he's been terrible on the road (2-4 with a 6.19 ERA in 10 starts / team is 3-7), while pitching extremely well here in Toronto (4-1 with a 1.73 ERA in six starts / team is 4-2). That's no surprise as the Blue Jays went 9-4 (3.27 ERA) in his home starts last year, giving Toronto a two-year 13-6 mark in his home starts. Las Vegas Insider on the Tor Blue Jays.

Re: FRIDAY SERVICE PLAYS

Jeff Alexander
   
Baltimore Orioles vs. Washington Nationals    
1 Unit on Washington Nationals +122

The Orioles have won just 2 out of the last 7 games in this matchup and I have them in a big letdown spot here after crushing the Cubs yesterday. Cabrera is one of the worst interleague pitchers you'll find. The Orioles are 1-10 in Cabrera's last 11 interleague starts, 0-5 in Cabrera's last 5 starts vs. the National League East, and 1-5 in his last 6 starts overall. The Orioles are just 5-22 in their last 27 interleague road games vs. a left-handed starter and 9-25 in their last 34 games vs. a left-handed starter. It's no secret that the O's don't handle lefties well. Bet the Nats tonight.

Re: FRIDAY SERVICE PLAYS

Alex Smart

Game: Atlanta Dream vs. Connecticut Sun
Prediction: Atlanta Dream

Reason: Connecticut just played a big game last night on the road against against long time rivals Detroit, which could easily have them in a let down situation. Getting motivated in this spot, on tired legs, against a visiting Atlanta team that has lost the first 13 games of their inaugural season in this league, will also be a problem for HC Mike Thibault. The combination of the Dreams desperation for a win , and Connecticut's schedule and lack of motivation, should make for a much closer tilt than many might expect. Final notes & Key Trends: The Sun are 0-7 ATS in home games versus poor teams like the Dream that have been outscored by their opponents by 3+ points per game on the season. Play on the Atlanta Dream to cover

Re: FRIDAY SERVICE PLAYS

Scott Spreitzer's "TKO" 20* Friday Night IL BAILOUT BLOWOUT! (TKOs = 2-0!)

I'm laying the price with the Angels on Friday. Joe Saunders is having a great year for Los Angeles. He's been almost un-hittable on the road, posting a 1.89 ERA this season with a sparkling WHIP of 1.09. That's in the American League, where a designated hitter bats. Amazing numbers. Note that he already shut down the Dodgers once this year at home, throwing seven strong innings in a game where the Dodgers got to use a DH. He'll be facing the LA Dodgers tonight at Chavez Ravine, and the pitchers will be batting. Chan Ho Park gets the start for the home team. He's not even a major league caliber starter at this point�just a desperation fill-in. The Halos are 16-7 their last 23 games, and have been dominant so far against the National League. The slumping Dodgers are 11-22 their last 33 games, and just dropped two of three on this field to the White Sox. We're getting a World Championship contender from the superior American League at a cheap price against a slumping opponent representing the woeful NL West. Oh, the Halos are 12-3 in the 15 games Saunders has started this year! The Angels minus the price is the play.

Scott Spreitzer's 25* IL BLOCKBUSTER BLOWOUT! (2nd TY, won 1st)

I'm laying the price with the Twins on Friday. Nick Blackburn has been very tough for opponents to hit this season, particularly at home. The Minnesota hurler has a 2.20 ERA in the Metrodome, with a solid 1.24 WHIP. Against teams getting their first look at him in 2008, his ERA is a very strong 2.96 wherever the games have been played. He may have trouble in the second half of the season once division rivals get their timing down. Right now, the first look teams are struggling badly. Milwaukee didn't see Blackburn when these teams met last week. And Minnesota took two out of three on the road anyway. You may not be aware that red-hot Minnesota has won 11 of its last 12 games, and is 9-2 its last 11 home games. The wagering markets have been very slow to react to the Twins' hot run the past few weeks, and to Blackburn's level of effectiveness all season. We've got the hottest team in baseball, at a short price, throwing a pitcher who's very difficult to hit in a first look. And, we've also got an American League team hosting a National League team in a season where the AL is just dominating Interleague action. The Twins minus the price is the play.

Re: FRIDAY SERVICE PLAYS

BIG AL's #1 BASEBALL SIDE WINNER; 5-1 RUN LAST 6

At 7:05pm our selection is on the Toronto Blue Jays over the Atlanta Braves. Toronto comes into this game against Atlanta off of their third win in their last four games, but more importantly, that win came against the hottest starter in the Major Leagues in Cincinnati's Edinson Volquez. The Jays not only beat Volquez and the Reds, they trounced them by six runs (7-1). Jays outfielder Vernon Wells missed an entire month with an injury, and although Toronto did not seem to benefit much at first from his return in the second week of June, Wells seems to have really found his stride now and has sparked a recent surge in offense for this team that has now scored a total of 34 runs in their last four games and outscored their opponents by 21 runs during this time. At 11-27, the Braves continue to be one of the worst teams in the Majors on the road and things haven't been so great at home either, as Atlanta is coming into this road series off of a six-game homestand in which they only managed to go 3-3 against the likes of Milwaukee and Seattle. Toronto's righthander Dustin McGowan has decent overall numbers at 6-5 with a 4.21 ERA, but he has been lights out in front of the home crowd at 4-1 with a 1.73 ERA when starting at the Rogers Centre in Toronto. Take the Jays.

BIG AL's FRIDAY BASEBALL TOTALS WINNER; 5-1 LAST 6

At 8:10pm our selection is Milwaukee Brewers and Minnesota Twins 'under' the total. Two teams with almost identical records begin a three game interleague series with two starters who are also very similar. Milwaukee's Seth McClung and Minnesota's Nick Blackburn are both righthanders in their mid-20s with winning records and ERAs right around 3.8 runs per game. McClung in particular has been incredibly effective lately for the Brewers. In his last start on June 21, McClung was practically unhittable for six innings against the Orioles before folding a bit and that is to be expected from a converted reliever who's had only six starts in his last two Major League seasons. McClung has been particularly stingy this season, only giving up 43 hits in almost 55 innings so far, and if the Brewers keep his innings down he should continue to be very productive for them. Blackburn has been more generous in the hits department, but he has only surrendered 15 walks in 93 innings and if you ignore his poor performance on June 6th against the Rangers in which he gave up seven earned runs, Blackburn has not allowed more than two earned runs in any of his other six starts between May 16 and now. Six of Milwaukee's last eight road games have gone under the total. Take the 'under'.
