SATURDAY SERVICE PLAYS

CHC Cubs and HOU Astros
Take CHC Cubs

The Astros captured a thriller against the Cubs on Friday night, and they can be a pretty pesky team at home, particularly when Wandy Rodriguez takes the mound. But this is a bad matchup for Houston. The Cubs eat up lefties and Carlos Zambrano has been absolutely sensational in his two starts since a two-week stint on the DL. Zambrano and the Cubs are my choice for Saturday's free play.

Jim Feist.

PIT Pirates and COL Rockies
Take Over

Should be a high scoring affair here on Saturday as the Rockies host the Pirates. Yoslan Herrera makes only his second start for the Bucs and the club hopes it's better than his first. Herrera lasted just 4 1/3 innings, gave up 11 hits and six earned runs in his only other start this year, a 12-11 loss to St Louis. Jorge DeLa Rosa has started more games for the Rockies, but the results are pretty much the same. De La Rosa is 3-5 on the year with a 7.57 era. Moreover, he's allowed 16 earned runs and 26 hits in his last 13 2/3 innings. The ball should be flying out of Coors field on Saturday!! Take the OVER.

Re: SATURDAY SERVICE PLAYS

TONY MATHEWS

New York Mets vs. Cincinnati Reds
Selection: New York Mets -135

The New York Mets will use starting pitcher Oliver Perez. Oliver Perez has been pitching very well as of late. In fact, Oliver Perez has a 0.90 ERA in his last 3 starts. We see Oliver Perez pitching another great game today.

The Cincinnati Reds will use starting pitcher Josh Fogg. Josh Fogg has been having huge pitching problems this entire season. In fact, Josh Fogg has a 7.94 ERA on the season. We see Josh Fogg having another bad game today.

The New York Mets are 7-3 in their last 10 meetings against the Cincinnati Reds, and should be able to get another win tonight!

Take the New York Mets!

Re: SATURDAY SERVICE PLAYS

JOHN FINA

Selection: Los Angeles/Arizona Under 7.5

Today we expect a low-scoring game as the Los Angeles Dodgers do battle with the Arizona Diamondbacks. One reason why we expect a low-scoring game is because both these teams will be sending to the mound solid starting pitchers. This says it all... The Los Angeles Dodgers Starting Pitcher (Chad Billingsley) has a 2.66 ERA in his last 3 starts, while Arizona Diamondbacks Starting Pitcher (Dan Haren) has a 1.23 ERA in his last 3 starts. As you can see, both these teams will be sending to the mound solid starting pitchers. We expect to see a low-scoring game tonight! Take the Los Angeles Dodgers/Arizona Diamondbacks Under 7.5

Re: SATURDAY SERVICE PLAYS

MATT RIVERS

For Saturday take the Mets in Cincinnati

Just too much going the way of the New Yorkers here to ignore them in this spot.
Oliver Perez has been total and complete money in each of his last three outings. The southpaw did walk six in that last outing and is always a risk to implode, as he is still a little feast or famine, but Perez has allowed only two earned runs in his last 20 innings and is a semi must play today.

No doubt the Reds can rake the ball and at Great American are very solid but the left handed power of Dunn, Griffey, Bruce and others could definitely get a  bit neutralized here by Perez. In game one of the series Johan Santana did not follow through with this plan but still more times than not a lefthanded pitcher is much better to have against this Cincinnati team.

Josh Fogg has made a couple of recent starts for the Reds and has been okay. The former Rockies and Pirates hurler has been around the block a bit and is not dreadful but he also does not have a huge upside and should get smacked around by the red hot Mets.

Jerry Manual has done a tremendous job after the firing of Willie Randolph and this New York Mets team is as confident as can be right now and we all know how they had a ton of talent with Reyes, Wright, Beltran, Delgado and others to begin with. The loss yesterday means nothing to me and has not stopped any of the momentum.

We have the better everything and are in a quality spot so I'll take my chances with the Mets here.

Re: SATURDAY SERVICE PLAYS

TONY WESTON

Now, we're going to keep that winning trend going tonight as we're heading to Ohio as we're going with the over on the Mets-Reds game.

The total for this one is set at about 10 and the teams will blow past that, despite totaling only seven runs last night.

The teams have played five times this season and the over has come in three times. In the five games these teams have played they've totaled, on average, more than 12 runs a contest (12.4). And only once in the last three games have they not scored double digits and that came last night when the teams totaled seven runs.

For the season the over is 27-19-5 for the Mets in road games and the over is 6-3 in the Reds? last nine games overall.

It'll be another high-scoring affair and the over will come in easily. Take the over tonight.

3♦ METS-REDS OVER

Carlo Campanella

Boston Red Sox at Los Angeles Angels
Prediction: Los Angeles Angels

The Angels find themselves as home Dogs as they host Boston on Saturday. We'll back this attack Dog knowing that Boston is a horrible 1-10 on the road against A.L. teams holding foes to 4.2 runs or less this season.!

7* Play on LA Angels

BRIAN MARSHALL

Texas Rangers vs. Minnesota Twins
Play On: Over 10

The Texas Rangers will be lead by starting pitcher Matt Harrison. Matt Harrison has had only two starts so far this season, however, has a 6.52 ERA. We see Matt Harrison giving up many runs once again today.

The Minnesota Twins will be lead by starting pitcher Livan Hernandez. Livan Hernandez has struggled this season. In fact, Livan Hernandez has a 5.44 ERA on the season. In addition, Livan Hernandez has a 6.75 ERA in his last 3 starts. We also see Livan Hernandez giving up many runs once again today.

These teams have a history of playing high-scoring games when they meet. In fact, the Over is 7-1 in the last 8 meetings between these teams.

Re: SATURDAY SERVICE PLAYS

CHRIS CHIRIMBES

The New York Yankees had baseball's best record after the All-Star break last year, turning a mediocre start into their 13th straight postseason appearance. They're hoping their comfortable win Friday is the start of another second-half surge. New York will look to win its sixth straight home game on Saturday when it continues its series with the Oakland Athletics, who have lost three straight for the first time since May. The Yankees' 51-25 record after the break last year earned them the AL wild card despite a 43-43 start. Their offense awakened in the second half, averaging 6.6 runs as five of their regulars batted above .300 over that span.

VEGAS EXPERTS

Kansas City Royals at Chicago White Sox

Considering where these two teams are in the standings and how White Sox pitcher Gavin Floyd has pitched at home this year, this is a still a great value on Chicago. This head-to-head series has been all Pale Hose, as they've taken six of seven overall from the Royals, including all four meetings here at US Cellular Field. Floyd has a 9-1 team start record in home starts this season.

Re: SATURDAY SERVICE PLAYS

Terron Chapman

Toronto Blue Jays vs. Tampa Bay Rays    
Play: Tampa Bay Rays   

All it took for the Tampa Bay Rays to get back in the win column was a return home to see the Toronto Blue Jays on the schedule. The two will continue their weekend set this evening in what should be a good pitching matchup.

Roy "Doc" Halladay will take the hill for the Blue Jays and he will be opposed by Matt Garza of the Rays. The Blue Jays hope their ace can pitch them to just their second win in eight meetings this season against the Rays. The Rays won last night's game 2-1 bringing their home record to 37-14 on the season. They are 8-1 against the Jays in the last nine meetings including a win over Halladay in Tampa back in April. The Blue Jays are 1-8 in their last 9 road games against a team with a winning record.

Matt Garza has been impressive at home. He's 5-1 with a 2.38 ERA at Tropicana field with his team going 6-3 in his nine home starts. Garza pitched well in his only appearance against the Jays earlier this year in Toronto. He allowed six hits and just one earned run in 6 2/3 innings in the 6-2 loss on May 7th. Expect another solid performance from him this evening. The Rays as mentioned earlier are a tough out at home. They are 6-0 in their last 6 games as a home pup. With Doc coming off such an impressive performance against the Yanks at home in his last outing, it will be hard for him to maintaint that level today on the road. Although certainly capable, expect the Rays to get just enough offense off of him for the win.Play on the Tampa Bay Rays for 1 unit.

GINA

Kansas City Royals at Chicago White Sox

The White Sox are 12-2 in their last 14 games at home and have won the last six versus Kansas City in Chicago, including Friday's 9-5 victory. The Royals have dropped six of its last 8 road games.

Kansas City's Gil Meche (6-9, 4.71 ERA) is 0-1 with a 5.00 ERA in his last three starts and 6-3 with a 4.38 ERA in 13 career starts versus the White Sox. The Royals have won five of the right-hander's last 6 starts.

Chicago's Gavin Floyd (10-5, 3.63) is 2-1 with a 5.06 ERA in his last three starts and 1-1 with a 3.46 ERA in three career appearances against Kansas City. The White Sox have won seven of Floyd's last 9 starts.

Let's go with the White Sox again tonight at U.S. Cellular Field. Chicago has beaten Kansas City in eight of the last nine battles and has dominated them in the Windy City, winning 43 of the last 57. Making matters worse for the Royals will be right-hander Gavin Floyd. Chicago has won ten of Floyd's last 11 starts at home.

Chicago White Sox -160

Re: SATURDAY SERVICE PLAYS

Chris Jordan

Boston at ANAHEIM +110 

I am well aware of Beckett’s domination of this team, but this is 2008, and he basically struggled throughout the first half, as he’s yet to throw a complete game, has allowed four runs or more in six of his 17 outings, and his record is due largely to a 6.43 run support average. He’s received an average of 9.49 runs in his nine wins, so you see why he’s nabbing victories along the way – and it’s certainly not because of his arm.

So while he banks on the Boston bats to come alive, he better worry about the sticks that came to life last night in a 11-3 rout at the Big A. The win pushed the Angels to their major league-leading 58th of the season, their third straight win overall, and it increased their AL West lead to a season-high seven games over Oakland.

And oh yes, while everyone might be worried about Beckett, let’s not forget about Saunders, who has had his own share of success in this clash, going 3-0 with a 2.92 ERA in four starts against the Sox - all of which were wins for Anaheim. With a chance to become the AL’s first 13-game winner, I’ll side with the Halos and Saunders.

Re: SATURDAY SERVICE PLAYS

Michael Cannon

Pittsburgh at COLORADO

Take the over tonight when the Pirates take on the Rockies at Coors Field.

I know all about the humidor and how Coors isn't what it used to be, but this game could be played in Petco Park tonight and still hurdle the posted total.

The Bucs will send Yoslan Herrera out for his second major league start, and since he's basically up with the big club because of all the injuries to the Pirates staff, I don't expect him to shut the Rockies lineup down.

The Pirates have one of the worst team ERA's in the majors, and if Herrera is only up because of injuries and not merit then you can't like his chances here.

The Rockies will counter with a Cy Young candidate of their own in Jorge De La Rosa.

I never really understood De La Rosa's roll in having a spot on a major league staff.  He has poor command and yields a high number of hits allowed.  I guess it goes to show you that if you're a left-handed pitcher, you'll always be able to find work in the big leagues.

Look for the baseballs to be flying out of Coors tonight.

Take the over.
