15 Dime

RANGERS (With Padilla as listed pitcher)

Take the Rangers for the home win over the Phillies.

Tough task here, with Cole Hamels getting the start for Philly, but the Rangers are sending a pretty good pitcher to the mound in Vicente Padilla.

Padilla has won his last three starts and eight of his last nine decisions.

Meanwhile, Philadelphia has lost eight of its last nine games. Hamels is having a fine year, but is just 2-5 with a 5.70 ERA in seven lifetime interleague starts.

With Texas enjoying homefield advantage they are indeed an attractive home dog.

Take the Rangers for the win.


10 Dime

YANKEES (With Pettitte as listed pitcher)

Take the Yankees as the small road dog for the win over the Mets.

Andy Pettitte will get the start for the Yankees and he’s been shutting everyone down lately. The left-hander has won his last three starts, allowing just one run in 21 innings.

Pettitte might have to keep the zeros going up to get the win here with Johan Santana starting for the Mets, but anytime you can get Pettitte and that Yankees lineup as a small dog it’s worth it.

Santana is 0-3 in his last four starts, despite a sparkling 2.08 ERA.

Take the Yankees as they grab the road win.

VEGAS RUNNER

UNDER 7.5 NYY/NYM (1*)

This Bet was slated to be a 2* Total which would have been added into today's "Heavy Hitters" Package, but since the majority of shops have moved the total to 7.5, from the opener "8"...I elected to down-grade it to a 1* Subscribers Bet...Now I still see the Stations as well as a few more Strip shops using 8 with the Under Favored, as well as a few locals I have access to...but the concensus seems to be at 7.5 which is what I will use to post this bet, but Please make sure to check all your outs and go ahead and lay the extra vig if you can get UNDER 8 like we were able to do

Re: SATURDAY SERVICE PLAYS

WUNDERDOG

Game: Milwaukee at Minnesota
Pick: 4 units on Minnesota -103

Minnesota is sizzling right now posting yet another come from behind win last night over the Brewers to run their streak to 10 games and 12 of 13. How can there not be value on a home team as a slight dog, winning night in night out? Livan Hernandez has been an innings eater for the Twins, but he has been so much more than that as the Twins have posted a 12-5 mark in games where he takes the mound. Milwaukee has been a dominating home team winning better than two of three, but the road shows them five games under .500. Right now the Twins have to be played, especially with this kind of moneyline at home.

Game: Arizona at Florida
Pick: 4 units on Florida +124

The D-backs were out of the gate in a hurry, but they have stalled and fallen apart, dipping under the .500 mark. Brandon Webb has been part of the struggle as he has pitched to a 7+ ERA over his last three starts. After the D-backs won his first nine starts they have been just 2-5 since. The road woes for this team continue as they are now just 7-20 in their last 27. Andrew Miller posted a 9+ ERA in April, but has since shaved off four runs and has it down to five now and 3.00 in his last three starts. We like the value of this Marlins team at home.

Game: Los Angeles Angels at Los Angeles Dodgers
Pick: 3 units on Los Angeles Angels +114

Chad Billingsley has followed his rookie success into this season, and has established himself as a quality starter. The problem he faces, as do many of the Dodgers' pitchers, is the lack of run support. The Dodgers' offense has sputtered all season, and has already produced 24 games scoring one run or less! That means even a good pitcher like Billingsley has managed to lead the Dodgers to only a 6-9 mark in his 15 starts. The Angels have played well over the last month or so posting a 22-13 mark in their last 35 games. Jered Weaver pitched poorly to start the season as the Angels posted wins in just two of those eight starts. They have reversed that fortune as Weaver has been more like the pitcher that carries a 31-16 career mark into this game. The Angels have now posted wins in six of his last eight starts. The Angels are the better team, and the Dodgers can't be trusted offensively, so we back the Angels to even the series tonight.

Game: Los Angeles Angels at Los Angeles Dodgers
Pick: 3 units on Los Angeles Angels +1.5 runs -199

From our moneyline write-up, there is a huge amount of value getting +1.5 runs in a matchup with the Dodgers as they have failed to plate more than one run in 24 games this season. The Angels are featuring a pitcher in Weaver that has posted wins in 31 of his 47 career decisions and the Angels have won six of his last eight. We like the Angels here anyway, but taking them on the runline as well against a poor Dodgers' offense

Re: SATURDAY SERVICE PLAYS

Vernon Croy IL Smash of the Night

LAA Angels vs. Los Angeles Dodgers
Pick: LAA Angels  20 Unit MLB IL Smash of the Night

This pick falls into one of my top MLB systems and the Angels are now 12-5 as a road dog of +100 to +125 this season. Jered Weaver (7-7, 4.56 ERA) has pitched solid over his last 3 starts with an ERA of just 3.66 while striking out 16 batters over 19.7 innings. Weaver has dominated the Dodgers in the past with a 3-0 record and an ERA of just 2.03 and the Dodgers are hitting just .233 as a team in interleague play this season while averaging just 3.3 rpg. The Dodgers are now just 14-29 in their last 43 interleague games and the Angels are one of the best road teams in the majors with a 26-14 record. Take the Angels as my MLB IL Smash of the Night as my 63-39 MLB run continues.

Re: SATURDAY SERVICE PLAYS

WUNDERDOG WNBA

Game: Minnesota at San Antonio
Pick: 3 units on Minnesota +160
Pick: 3 units UNDER 153

This is a pivotal game for the Lynx and the Silver Stars. Both teams bring an identical 8-6 record into this one as each team is trying to stay within striking distance of Western Conference-leader Los Angeles. The Lynx looked like one of best teams in the WNBA early on as they opened 6-1, but fell hard over their next seven going 1-6. The team that opened the season has been the one showing up again as the Lynx have bounced back to win two straight. They have found their way back via the defensive end of the court as they have allowed fewer points in their last three games combined than any other three-game stretch on the season. San Antonio has followed the same pattern as the Lynx, but in opposite fashion as they opened 3-4, then ran off six of seven, but now has dropped two in a row. The defense has disappeared, but when they were losing before, it was the defense that brought them back to life. This presents a good opportunity for the Lynx, 8-1 outside of their losing streak, and a renewed defensive commitment to grab a win on the road, in a game also played UNDER the posted total.

Game: Detroit at Chicago
Pick: 3 units on Chicago +225

This looks like an easy one for the Shock, but we don't see it that way. You have to go to school on the emotional significance of this game for the Shock, who are coming off of two highly-emotional games back-to-back with the Sun and a third coming shortly. All you have to do is look what happened last night. Off the same two emotional games the Shock were a no-show at home last night against the winless Dream, needing OT to put them away. Well here are the Shock facing the same emotional letdown situation, and they aren't in front of the home-town fans either, making it an even more challenging game. The Sky has played Connecticut, LA, and Minnesota to within six points at home and this is a great spot for them to steal one.

Game: Indiana at Houston
Pick: 3 units UNDER 141

Indiana played their last game in New York where both teams played into the 100s. It was a game that by the raw score looked like a high-scoring affair and may have added a few points to this total. The Fever has played five other road games, and has held the opponents to 68.8 points per game. They obviously don't get themselves into a full-court game. Houston opened the season with five straight losses, but has patched things up on the defensive end, and the last five home games have seen the opponent average less than 70 ppg. This game has the makings of a game played in the 60s, and we will back the UNDER in this one.

Game: New York at Sacramento
Pick: 4 units on Sacramento -3
Pick: 3 units OVER 150

You have to question just how good is this New York team. They have had a very favorable schedule to this point as they have played eight of their 13 games at home. The five road games has left them with a single win and that was a close call at winless Atlanta. They have been out-scored by 51 points in their other four, or by almost 13 per game. The biggest reason is that although they can score, they play no defense on the road as they have yielded 85 points per game in their last four. Sacramento has struggled at home against the top two teams in the league in Connecticut and Detroit, but has beaten everyone else. This looks like a very winnable game against a Liberty team that has shown nothing on the road despite a good overall record. We also like the OVER here, as the Liberty are giving up points in the mid-eighties on the road. We project this one closer to the 160 range

Re: SATURDAY SERVICE PLAYS

ASA

Los Angeles Angels +120

ASA 6-Star Top Game - Fantasy players and stat-gurus love Chad Billingsley because he earns a great deal of strikeouts but he is not producing wins for the struggling Dodgers. Los Angeles is just 7-10 in his starts this season and they have lost four of his last six starts. Billingsley actually has worse numbers at home than on the road with a 4.35 ERA and a dangerous 1.47 WHIP. Billingsley and the Dodgers bullpen will face a very solid Angel lineup that is hitting .284 in the past ten games.

The Los Angeles Angels are the best road team in baseball with a 26-13 record and despite not getting the attention of other elite teams they are a serious threat in the AL as they are dominating the AL West and quietly have one of the best records in baseball. The Angels also own a strong interleague record including delivering wins in seven of the past eight road games. The Angels have also won nine of the past eleven meetings in this city rivalry.

Jered Weaver has not matched the success of his rookie season but he remains one of the better pitchers in the AL. The Angels have won six of his last eight starts and he has allowed two runs or less in five of those eight starts. The Dodgers own excellent bullpen statistics but the Angels bullpen has 21 more saves than the Dodgers have while blowing two fewer opportunities. The Dodgers are 13-38 in the last 51 interleague games and the Angels should deliver another win Saturday.

Re: SATURDAY SERVICE PLAYS

South Coast Sports

Colorado Rockies vs. Detroit Tigers
Pick: Detroit Tigers  3-Units

Justin Verlander has won 2 of his last 3 starts, and has done so by taking things into his own hands. He gave up 2 earned runs to the Padres on Sunday, but the big number that jumps out at me is that he had 10 strikeouts in only 5 innings of work, which gives him 20 k's over his last 3 games. Despite pitching well over his last 10 games, the Tigers are only 3-7 in those starts. Six of those ten starts saw the Tigers offense score 2 or less runs of support. That was then, this is now. The Tigers have put up some decent numbers over their last 5 games, scoring 27 runs which has resulted in a 4-1 record. Jeff Francis gets the start for the Rockies. Francis has been in bad form over his last 3 games, allowing 12 runs with only 5 strikeouts, while giving up 4 long balls. Francis could be in a heap of trouble against a Tigers offense that has hit .311 at home vs lefties this season, and has looked more impressive by hitting .327 and scoring 9.26 runs a game vs lefties over their last 5 games. How are the Rockies doning vs righties? How about a .209 batting average vs righties while scoring only 2.14 runs a game vs righties over their last 5. Verlander is 8-0 with a 2.21 Era in Interleague games in his career, and stands a very good chance to make it 9-0 facing a Colorado team that has lost 4 straight on the road, and is 12-29 on the season when traveling. Take the Detroit Tigers -165 for 3-Units!

Re: SATURDAY SERVICE PLAYS

Tony Karpinski  Interleague Game of the YEAR

San Francisco Giants vs. Oakland Athletics
Pick: Oakland Athletics

Tim Lincecum hasn't taken long to establish himself as an elite pitcher, and he's probably the biggest reason the Giants aren't as awful as they were projected to be this season. But as well as Lincecum has pitched, Oakland's Justin Duchscherer has been even better. He's sporting a microscopic ERA, and right now he's red hot, and the A's are simply better than the Giants from top to bottom in their lineup.

Oakland is at home and everything up and the price seems a bit low for this matchup. Justin Duchscherer's E.R.A. is 1.99 and his WHIP is .97. In his last six starts he has allowed a total of just seven runs and his shortest outing was six innings.

Tim Lincecum has not recorded a victory in his last 3 starts and has given up 9 runs in his last two starts. I'm going to back Duchscherer and the A's as my Interleague GAME OF THE YEAR.
