Re: SUNDAY SERVICE PLAYS

LT Profits

Baltimore Orioles @ Washington Nationals Under 8.5

Jeremy Guthrie of the Baltimore Orioles has pitched in hard luck for two years now while Jason Bergmann looks to have regained his great form, so look for a low scoring game here.

Guthrie received the lowest run support in the league last season, and this year has not been that much different so far. He has a nice 3.64 ERA and 1.21 WHIP in 108.2 innings, he has allowed three earned runs or less in 13 of his last 16 starts, and yet Guthrie is just 4-7. Then again, a continued lack of run support would suit the Under just fine here. He certainly should be able to hold his form vs. this weak Washington offense.

As for Bergmann, remember that he had a three-start stretch last month where he tossed 19.2 scoreless innings, and after regressing a bit in his next three outings, he has now allowed just two earned runs in 13 innings in his last two outings. This will also be his firrt career start vs. Baltimore, which should help his cause.

Finally, the Under is 14-6-1 in the last 21 head-to-head meetings between these clubs, and we see no reason that will not continue today given this pitching matchup.

Pick: Orioles, Nationals Under 8.5


Chicago Cubs @ Chicago White Sox Under 9.0

The Chicago Cubs and Chicago White So wrap up interleague play for 2008 when they conclude their Windy City Series in the ESPN Sunday Night Baseball game tonight.

Mark Buehrle is now in peak form right now for the White Sox, as he has reeled of seven Quality Starts in his last eight outings, allowing exactly one run in five of those starts including three of his last four appearances. He was also a perfect two for two in Quality Starts vs. the Cubs last season, when he was not nearly as sharp as he is now.

Now Sean Marshall is making just his second start of the season for the Cubs, but he tossed probably the game of his life vs. these White Sox right here in this stadium last season, tossing 6.1 scoreless innings while allowing just five hits. The southpaw is facing a White Sox lineup that is hitting only .234 vs. left-handed pitching at home this season, as opposed to .292 vs. righties here.

Finally, the White Sox lead the American League with a 2.72 bullpen ERA while the Cubs rank fourth in the National League with a 3.45 pen ERA, which should limit late tack-on runs.

Pick: Cubs, White Sox Under 9

Tony Karpinski

Milwaukee Brewers vs. Minnesota
Play: Minnesota Twins   

Tough loss for the Twins last night. They got down 5-0 early in this game and just couldn’t rally. They had just three hits last night and scored just one run. Livan Hernandez did not give the start that this team needed. The Twins will bounce back at home today. This is still a team that is seven games over .500 for the season. Even better they are nine games over .500 at home.

We know that Ben Sheets is on the mound for the Brewers. He has been real solid all year but let’s not sleep on Kevin Slowey. The Twins are 3-0 in Kevin’s last three starts. How about a 1.35 ERA and just a .90 WHIP? Kevin makes the team work and very rarely issues free passes.

The Twins are still a hot team. 13-4 in their last seventeen games gives us the confidence we need in them.

John Ryan

Seattle Mariners vs. San Diego Padres    
Play: San Diego Padres   

Ai Simulator 3* graded play on San Diego – Supporting this graded play is a system that has gone 62-15 making 39.1 units for a remarkable 81% since 2002. Play against road dogs with a money line of +125 to +175 after a win by 2 runs or less now facing an opponent after scoring 4 runs or less 5 straight games. Two excellent starters to be sure, but the difference in this game will be the bullpens. Seattle has an unacceptable 5.81 ERA in day games spanning 70 innings of relief. San Diego has posted a strong 2.96 ERA in day games spanning 82 IP. SD starter Peavy might not even need the bullpen as he is a perfect 4-0 when starting against Seattle with an ERA of 1.56 and a WHIP of 0.779. Take SD

J. R. Miller

TIGERS -157 over Rockies (Rogers-Reynolds)
BLUEJAYS -148 over Braves (Burnett-Reyes)
INDIANS -165 over Reds (Laffey-Arroyo)
ASTROS +154 over Redsox (Moehler-Beckett) (OR +1.5 -114)
Redsox at Astros OVER 8.5 +102 (Beckett-Moehler)


Remember, we pay attention to hits even more than runs. The number of hits can tell you if you were on the right side of the bet, even though you might have lost the game.

If Team A gets 4 or 5 hits in only one inning, they will probably get at least 3 runs in the inning. On the other hand, if Team B gets 1 hit in each and every inning of a 9-inning game, they may not get any runs at all. Team A wins the game, but Team B out-hits Team A, 9 to 4 or 5.

Given no information other than that, and forced to bet on the next game between Team A and Team B, we would bet on Team B. The sequence of hits can make all the difference in whether or not a team may win, but stick with the team that figures to get the most hits. Historically, the team that gets the most hits wins the game more than 75%-80% of the time.

In yesterday's Giants/Athletics' game we were on the Athletics and they out-hit the Giants, 7-2, so we felt good about that....But it didn't save us. The Giants won the game and beat us, 1-0.

Re: SUNDAY SERVICE PLAYS

Ben Burns

Seattle Mariners at San Diego Padres
Prediction: San Diego Padres

The Mariners have won the first two games of this series but this afternoon's matchup favors the Padres to avoid the sweep. While Bedard is highly capable, he has an awful 6.59 ERA and 1.5 WHIP on the road this season. He also missed his last scheduled start after leaving with back spasms and pitching only three innings in his last time on the mound. He'll be matched up against Jake Peavy, who appears completely healthy after throwing more than 100 pitches in his last start. On the season, Peavy has an outstanding 1.29 ERA and 0.837 WHIP here at Petco Park. He's also 4-0 (Padres were 5-0!) with a superb 1.56 ERA and 0.786 WHIP in five career starts vs. the Mariners. Consider a play on SAN DIEGO

Re: SUNDAY SERVICE PLAYS

Larry Ness

Philadelphia Phillies @ Texas Rangers
PICK: Philadelphia Phillies

The Phillies' lineup includes Ryan Howard (MVP in '06), Jimmy Rollins (MVP in '07) and Chase Utley (23 HRs / 65 RBI in '08) but after a 20-2 win at St Louis on June 13, the team lost NINE of its next 11 games, while scoring a pathetic 31 runs (2.82 per game). However, a visit to Texas to face one of MLB's worst pitching staffs, has seen the Phiilies score15 runs the last two games (lost 8-7 Friday but won last night, 8-6). Texas owns MLB's second-worst team ERA (4.93) and will start rookie Eric Hurley on Sunday, who is making just his fourth big league start. He's 0-1 with a 4.24 ERA so far, with the Rangers yet to win one of his starts. He'll be opposed by veteran lefty, Jamie Moyer. Moyer has lost his last two starts but he hasn't pitched that poorly (3.86 ERA). However, it's hard to win when your team scores just two runs in the two games, combined. Moyer has been very effective on the road this year, going 4-2 with a 2.94 ERA in eight road starts (team is 6-2). There's little reason for Moyer not to be successful here, as the Rangers have struggled this season against all lefties, going only 8-17 in '08. The longtime American Leaguer has 33 career starts against the Rangers, posting a 14-7 mark (4.95 ERA), with his teams going 21-12. It also helps that Moyer is backed by a Philadelphia bullpen which owns the best ERA in all of MLB (2.63), while Hurley, a rookie making just his fourth career start, is backed by MLB's worst bullpen (4.90 ERA). Take the Phillies.

Wunderdog

St. Louis at Kansas City
Pick: Kansas City -116

St. Louis broke a couple of streaks with their win yesterday. The win put an end to their three game slide and also ended KC's six-game winning streak. But let's not let one game cloud the situation here. The fact remains that the Cards have lost seven of their last 11 while the Royals have won 11 of their last 13. Both of these starters have been hot of late, posting sub 3.00 ERAs over their last three starts. But, Looper has a worse overall ERA and a 3.91 road ERA compared to Bannister's 2.48 home ERA. KC's bats have struggled this season but during this winning run, that's not been the case. The Royals just seem to like interleague play as they are 13-4 so far this season against cross-league opponents. The last two seasons, Bannister is 9-2 in June games and 11-3 in day games. We like the Royals here.

Re: SUNDAY SERVICE PLAYS

David Malinsky

Atlanta Braves @ Toronto Blue
PICK: Toronto Blue Jays 3*

We needed to wait for the lineups on this one, but now that the Atlanta has confirmed that Chipper Jones and Yunel Escobar will sit out again, the timing is right to get behind A. J. Burnett and he Blue Jays this afternoon.

The Braves have floundered at a dismal 12-28 clip on the road this season, and many of those defeats came with much better lineups than they are putting on the field today. With Jones and Escobar sidelined the left side of the infield becomes Brent Lillibridge (.158) and Ruben Gotay (.197). As punchless as they have been there are also defensive issues as well, a problem with left-hander Jo-Jo Reyes on the mound. Reyes has not had a single start this season in which his fly-ball outs exceeded his ground-outs, but with Toronto sending seven right-handers to the plate against him, a lot of those ground balls are going to challenge the left side of the Atlanta defense, on a fast surface, with much of that helping to contribute to the poor showing of Tim Hudson yesterday (six earned runs over seven innings). And the Reyes confidence is also an issue, having been shelled in his last start vs. Milwaukee, when 66 pitches could only get him through 2.1 innings. Meanwhile the absence of Escobar also leaves Atlanta without a true leadoff hitter, and the Braves do not get help much by the DH being in play, with the injury to Matt Diaz forcing Greg Norton and his .204 (since coming over to the N.L.) out there against Burnett.

Burnett has the ability to overpower weak lineups - after struggling to get into pitching shape early in the season he has now recorded 73 strikeouts over 62 innings in his last 10 starts, and his dominating home win vs. Cincinnati earlier in the week was hit best outing of the season, working eight innings at an economical 13.9 pitches per frame (the latter matching his season low). And with a deep and talented bullpen behind him the latter stages are in good hands as well, giving us a game that the home team can control.
