SUNDAY SERVICE PLAYS

Re: SUNDAY SERVICE PLAYS

Vernon Croy

San Francisco Giants vs. Oakland Athletics
Pick: Under  20 Unit MLB Afternoon Total of the Week

Both of these starters have pitched solid this season and the O/U was 4-11 for the Giants in interleague games before last nights game. The O/U is 7-19 for the Athletics when facing a left starter this season and they are hitting just .245 as a team against lefties while averaging just 3.7 rpg. Johnathan Sanchez (7-4, 3.98 ERA) has pitched solid overall this season and I look for him to have a lot of success against this Athletics line-up that has struggled against lefties this season. Joe Blanton (4-10, 4.58 ERA) has pitched solid at home this season with an ERA of just 3.66 and the O/U is 1-6 for the Giants at Oakland the last 3 seasons not counting last nights game. Oakland’s opponents are hitting just .223 against them at home this season while averaging just 3.3 rpg. Take the Under as my MLB Afternoon Total of the Week.


Atlanta Braves vs. Toronto Blue Jays
Pick: Atlanta Braves  20 Unit MLB Afternoon Dog of the Month

This pick falls into one of my MLB systems and the Braves have the better overall pitcher on the mound today. Jo-Jo Reyes (3-5, 4.48 ERA) has pitched solid on the road this season with an ERA of just 2.83 while striking out 22 batters over just 28.7 innings and A.J. Burnett (7-7, 5.07 ERA) has struggled at home this season with an ERA of 6.46 allowing 47 hits over just 39 innings pitched. Burnett is just 4-9 lifetime against Atlanta and Atlanta is hitting .290 as a team in day games this season while the Jays are hitting just .237 as a team against lefty starters. The Jays are just 6-15 when facing a lefty starter this season and they are just 3-6 as a home favorite of -150 to -175 this season. Take Atlanta as my MLB Afternoon Dog of the Month

20 Dime –

ANGELS (With Lackey as listed pitcher)

Take the Angels for the road win today over the Dodgers.

I have to think John Lackey will stop the bleeding here for the Halos. The right-hander has won four straight starts, posting a 1.50 ERA with 25 strikeouts and five walks.

Lackey has also had success in his career against the Dodgers, going 4-1 with a 1.45 ERA in six starts.

The Dodgers will counter with Derek Lowe, who has had a tough time in interleague play this year. The right-hander is 0-3 with a 6.52 ERA in three starts against the Junior Circuit.

Lowe’s struggles against the A.L. could help awaken the Angels slumping offense, and that combined with Lackey on the mound makes them the play here.

Take the Angels as they grab the road win.


10 Dime –

TWINS (With Slowey as listed pitcher)

Take the Twins as the home dog this afternoon over the Brewers.

Not an easy task going against Ben Sheets, but it’s not like the Twins haven’t been playing good baseball lately.

Minnesota’s loss last night ended a season-high 10-game winning streak, so it’s not out of the realm of possibility that they’ll bounce back today.

Kevin Slowey will get the start for the Twins and he’s 2-0 with a 1.35 ERA in his last three starts.

The Twins have not lost consecutive games since a six-game losing streak from June 5-10, and haven’t lost a series since losing two of three at Cleveland from June 10-12.

Take the Twins as they grab the home win.

Re: SUNDAY SERVICE PLAYS

Greg Shaker


San Francisco Giants at Oakland Athletics
Athletics -1.5 (Sanchez/Blanton) 150 Unit Value: 2

Play this one at 1/2 Moneyline of -140 and 1/2 Runline for better odds and a push with a 1 run win.

Anaheim Angels at Los Angeles Dodgers
Angels (Lackey/Lowe) -117 Unit Value: 2


Tampa Bay Devil Rays at Pittsburgh Pirates
Over 9.5 (Sonnanstine/Gorzelanny) Unit Value: 2

Note: I do not play very many OVERS in Major League Baseball and that has worked out very well this year. I have on occasion when one of the teams on the field in the Pittsburgh Pirates and I will do that again for the contest today. One of the dynamics we have working for us today will be the Fact that these two squads have been using a lot of Bullpen Throwers in recent games. Certainly last night was no exception with 9 of them coming into the game in the 13 inning affair. Ironically, The Pitt Second Line Throwers did very well. That is an Aberation for them though as they have been overwhelmingly PITTiful this year. The last 10 games have been worse than worse as they have managed an ERA of 6.91 despite the good work in their last game. What this team lacks in Good Chunkers, they make up for in the way they can score runs. Perhaps that is why they are 49-26-4 OVER this year in all games played. Gorzy is not having the kind of year that he had hoped for and the reason for that is very simple. He does not have good command of his pitches and he is putting a lot of people onbase via the free pass. TB's Thrower has been both good and bad for the 2008 Campaign and while he has great potential, he does not usually go very deep into the game. That is a bit unusual for an AL Starter with the DH Rule in effect. Sonny has yet to get past the 5th Innings the last 6 times he has thrown, so the liklihood of seeing a weary DevilRay Bullpen is very good. That Pen has a Road ERA over 2 Runs Higher than at their homepark. Both of these squads are producing a lot of runs lately and Tampa Bay specifically is hammering lefties. We can Look at Gorzelanny Trends to find that he is 7-3 OVER last 10 at home, and 21-6 OVER the last 27 regardless of the venue. I am not a Trendy Person, but those speak for themselves and I will take the leap of faith that we will see a larger number of runs scored than the Oddsmakers think.

Re: SUNDAY SERVICE PLAYS

Jeff Hochman

LAA Angels vs. Los Angeles Dodgers
Pick: LAA Angels 10* MLB Interleague gem

10*LA Angels (Lackey/Lowe) Time Change to 1:10 PM PT John Lackey is "nails" off multiple team losses in his career and pitches great against the Dodgers. He is 2-0 with a 0.45 ERA, while holding Dodger hitters to a .169 batting average. Derrick Lowe likes pitching at night rather than in day games. His career ERA in day games is well over 5. Russell Martin is due for a "day off" and when he doesn't start at Catcher the Dodgers are just 4-10 over the last two seasons.

White Sox

We hit our free play yesterday on the White Sox and I will be riding them again today to sweep the cross town rival cubbies! This series is a different story than last week when the Cubs were too much to handle for the White Sox. But the Cubs come in and have simply been struggling of late, partly due to the White Sox! Cubs are 1-4 in their last 5 games overall, and 0-5 in their last 5 road games. They are 1-11 in Marshall's last 12 starts when their opponent allows 5 runs or more and they are 2-12 in ther last 14 games after scoring 5 runs or more in their previous game! The White Sox send Buehrle to the mound who is 4-1 in last 5 starts and 5-1 in his last 6 interleague starts! The White Sox are 20-6 in their last 26 Home Games vs a team with a losing road record and 19-7 in their last 26 Home games as a favorite!

Scott Rickenbach

PICK on San Diego Padres Money Line (-) vs Seattle

The Padres are a little pricier than I generally like to use a star rated pick but I do see value with them here and so that's why you're finding them in this spot. The pitching edge with Jake Peavy over Erik Bedard coupled with the home field edge makes the Padres well worth the price here in my opinion. Yes, the Mariners have taken the first two games of this series but Seattle came into this series with a 13-26 road record and the Padres were 21-18 at home before hitting this recent 7 game skid. While the back to back losses to the Mariners are somewhat unacceptable, the Padres five prior home losses came against the Tigers and Twins. Detroit and Minnesota are two of the hottest teams in the league so, while not inexcusable, the fact is that the Padres had simply run into two surging teams and they struggled.

Re: SUNDAY SERVICE PLAYS

King Creole

In terms of Baseball Over / Unders, King Creole 'lives by the UMP... and dies by the Ump'. Yesterday, we DIED by the Umpire going 0-2-1 in Over / Unders. Our silver lining is that so far this week, ALL baseball OU Plays are still 5-2-1 overall. We will officially pass on the Sunday... and live to fight another day based on this week's 5-2-1 record. But there is a game that was close to making our late-phone service, and here it is:

Play on: UNDER the TOTAL / Los Angeles Angels with LACKEY @ Los Angeles Dodgers with LOWE / 4:05pm ET

As a starting point, this jumped out at me for this afternoon

JOHN LACKEY is a PERFECT 0-6 O/U in his last 7 Interleague starts vs the DODGERS.... while DEREK LOWE is 1-7-1 O/U in his last 9 Interleague starts vs the ANGELS. That's a combined 1-13-1 O/U overall! And with both pitchers in pretty good recent form, we'll make a small wager on UNDER 7 runs. John Lackey has thrown EIGHT Quality Starts in row going into this afternoon's game. He's allowed 3 or less earned runs in ALL EIGHT starts... and ONE or less earned runs in SIX of those 8 starts. ERA is a microscopic 1.65 in the last two months. And he's 0-9-1 O/U In his last 10 starts!. Meanwhile, Derek Lowe has thrown Quality Starts in SIX of his last 7 game, with an ERA of only 2.57. ALL three of his last 3 starts have gone UNDER the Total.

Today's home plate Umpire is ADRIAN JOHNSON. He's 7-12 O/U in all games in the 2008 season... and 9-18 O/U in his last 27 games dating back to last year. In the 'what have you done for me LATELY" department, we note that he has gone a PERFECT 0-3 O/U in his last 3 games. And he's already umped for BOTH of today's teams this season. He's 0-1 O/U in ANGEL games in 2008.... and 0-1 O/U in DODGER games.

Sammy Jankus

The Reverse Barometer! Always play the OTHER SIDE of my game writeup.  big_smile

NY Yankees at NY Mets
3* Yankees-Mets to go 'OVER' the total of 9.5 runs

If emotional energy has anything to do with the outcome of a baseball game, then these two teams have got to be RUNNING ON EMPTY. First, they had to square off in a doubleheader on Friday: the Mets DESTROYED the Yanks in Game One, 15-6, before the Bronx Bombers fought back to claim the nightcap, 9-0. With yesterday's 3-2 Yankees victory coming after a tense pitching duel, we can clearly see the total runs scored heading straight downhill, from 21 to 9 to 5. In the final regular season meeting of these bitter rivals, I expect to see two EMOTIONALLY DEPLETED squads take the field and struggle to score runs. With that said, I think there's absolutely NO WAY the Mets and Yanks can combine for a double-digit run total here – so your play is on OVER THE TOTAL.
