STEVE JANUS

Colorado Rockies

The Rockies have won 4 in a row at home and 6 in a row overall against any team with a losing record. They've also been drilling left-handed pitching lately and have been translating that into wins as Colorado has won 7 of 8 against lefties. The Dodgers are 9-20 as a road underdog between +110 and +160, plus they've lost 4 of their last 5 against right-handed pitching. Solid play on the home team in Colorado Monday.

JOHN FINA

Selection: Pittsburgh/Houston Over 10

Today we expect a high-scoring game as the Pittsburgh Pirates do battle with the Houston Astros. One reason why we expect a high-scoring game is because both these teams will send to the mound poor starting pitchers. This says it all... The Pittsburgh Pirates Starting Pitcher (John Van Benschoten) has a 9.77 ERA this season, while Houston Astros Starting Pitcher (Runelvys Hernandez) has a 10.29 ERA this season. As you can see, both these pitchers have been having huge pitching problems. The bottom line, we should see many runs scored tonight! Take the Pittsburgh Pirates/Houston Astros Over 10

Los Angeles at COLORADO

While the Dodgers offense has not exactly been lighting up the scoreboard this season, we do like them to get some runs this evening in Colorado as they this three game set against the Rockies.

Kip Wells is making his first start since April 1st, and we simply don't think he is going to be around that long in this one. In Wells' two previous starts against LA, he has allowed 10 runs in 10 innings of work. With that kind of line, it is likely the Dodgers will plate some runs tonight.

Eric Stults counters for Los Angeles, and the southpaw has allowed 8 runs over his last 15 innings of work for an 0-2 record.

These teams have played three already this year at Coors, and 2 of the 3 have gone OVER the total. We like this one to go OVER as well.

Play on the OVER tonight between the Dodgers and Rockies.

2♦ OVER

Karl Garrett

Minnesota at NY YANKEES

You would think with the lineup the Yankees have they would be going OVER the total more often than not, but that just hasn't been the case, as the New York offense hasn't shown much pop in a while.

Yesterday's UNDER was New York's 4th straight UNDER, and their 8th UNDER in their last 9 games!

Hard to imagine an OVER tonight against the Twins with that lack of production from the pinstripers.

Minnesota comes to town having played UNDER the total in 3 of their last 4, and starter Nick Blackburn comes into this start having allowed just 4 earned runs over his last 21 innings of work.

This will be the first meeting between the teams in the Bronx this year, and over the last two season's, these teams are on a 2-4-1 UNDER clip in 7 meetings.

G-Man gonna ride the UNDER in tonight's series opener.

3♦ UNDER

VEGAS EXPERTS

Pittsburgh Pirates at Houston Astros

Off a loss, you can't make the Houston Astros a large enough favorite against John Van Benschoten and Pittsburgh. The Pirates too are coming off a loss, five of them in fact, and Van Benschoten may be the worst starter in any rotation in baseball. In all three starts, he's failed to log more than four innings and his ERA is a pathetic 12.27. Pittsburgh has lost seven straight on the road.

Play on: Houston

Chicago Cubs at Arizona Diamondbacks

The Arizona Diamondbacks have won eight of the last 9 games against the Chicago Cubs at Chase Field and won lefty Randy Johnson last 10 starts versus the Cubs, 7-0 in his last seven at home.

Go with Arizona with their veteran Johnson on the hill to continue their dominance at home against the Cubs. Johnson is 12-0 with a 1.98 ERA in 13 career starts against the Cubs. Chicago has lost 11 of their last 16 road games and 25 of the last 32 meetings in Arizona.

Arizona Diamondbacks +120

Atlanta Braves vs. Florida Marlins    
Play: Florida Marlins 

The Florida Marlins will look to carry the momentum they gained from Sunday's walk off win against the Phillies into game 1 of their series tonight with the Atlanta Braves. They will send a young right hander to the mound in Christopher Volstad who was electric in his first big league start.

I'm a little apprehensive in recommending a play on a rookie pitcher in his first home start but I was impressed by what I saw from Volstad in his first outing against the Dodgers. He has an electric fastball with good command of his changeup. He struck out six while going 8 2/3 innings allowing just 5 hits and 1 earned run in the Marlins 3-1 win nine days ago. He should be tough against a Braves team who is coming off a rough weekend, dropping two of three to the lowly Washington Nationals including a 15-6 drubbing yesterday.

The Braves are one of the major's worst road teams with a record of 15-32. Jorge Campillo will get the start for the Braves. After a strong start the right hander has cooled off some and comes into the game just 1-2 in his last three with an ERA of 5.00. The Braves are just 2-5 in his last 7 starts overall. He lasted only four innings in his only appearance against the Marlins giving up 6 hits and 4 earned runs in only 4 innings pitched inlcluding two homer's. The Braves are hitting just .202 against right handers the last 10 games.Play on the Florida Marlins for 1 unit.

Re: MONDAY SERVICE PLAYS

MATT RIVERS

For Monday take the Yankees at this cheap price.

Let me get a few things straight, the Yankees are not having another amazing second half run because they are too beat up and overall not very good and Sidney Ponson is a piece of crap. So then how can I back Arod and the fellas? Simple, this price is too darn cheap at Yankee Stadium against yes a solid Minnesota team but a squad that is still not exactly a road warrior.

I love Joe Mauer and Justin Morneau, who just won the home run title in the Bronx, and the Twinkies are a solid squad that should be in this thing until the end but Nick Blackburn on the road does not faze me one bit and despite Ponson being a fat judge slapping Aruban piece of crap the righty has been very good all season long and was just great in that last start shutting down the first place Rays.

Jeter, Giambi, Arod, Abreu and the Yankees are beat up as Damon and Matsui among others are injured but they did just manage to sweep the A's in that last series and the bats can't do any less today they they did against Oakland.

Minnesota can win this game but the Twins are not as good away from the Metrodome and today against the Yankees should fall a little flat in maybe a tight game but still a loss.

Even with Joe Girardi's club not being all that dominant they still should be a sizable favorite today in the range of at least 160ish.

BRIAN MARSHALL

Toronto Blue Jays vs. Baltimore Orioles
Play On: Toronto/Baltimore Over 10

The Toronto Blue Jays will be lead by starting pitcher Jesse Litsch. Jesse Litsch has been having a bad season. In fact, Jesse Litsch has a 4.16 ERA on the season. In addition, Jesse Litsch has a 6.59 ERA in his last 3 starts. We see Jesse Litsch giving up many runs once again today.

The Baltimore Orioles will be lead by starting pitcher Radhames Liz. Radhames Liz has also been having a bad season. In fact, Radhames Liz has a 7.57 ERA on the season. In addition, Radhames Liz has a 11.25 ERA in his last 3 starts. We see Radhames Liz 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 12-1 in the last 13 meetings between these teams.

SCOTT DELANEY

I know Boston played late last night in Anaheim, but that's cool, as the M's are officially the saddest team in the majors after Cleveland went in and looked like a contender when it's really nothing more than one of the worst teams in the bigs.

We'll side with Jon Lester, who is 3-2 in eight road starts, and who looked good earlier this month in Yankee Stadium, nabbing the complete-game shutout. He'll get plenty of run support against Jarrod Washburn, who is 2-3 at home with a 5.26 ERA, and who is 0-2 in his last three starts against the BoSox.

Re: MONDAY SERVICE PLAYS

Brian Hansen

Los Angeles Dodgers at Colorado Rockies
Prediction: Over

The Rockies have won four straight games since the All Star Break and they were very impressive in scoring 28 runs in those four games! Tonight their offense should stay hot as they get to face Dodgers starter Eric Stults. The Dodgers southpaw has allowed 8 earned runs in his last 15 innings and not been near as solid as he was earlier this season. The home run ball is also taking a toll on Stults and, in his first ever start at Coors Field, the homer could certainly be a problem for him! As you can see, the Rockies offense should stay hot here and also note that the Dodgers are currently without their closer, Takashi Saito. Want more? Let?s talk about how the Dodgers should also have a big night at the plate tonight! For one thing, yesterday's 9th inning rally for the win at Arizona certainly gives Los Angeles a big boost of confidence heading into this match-up! The Dodgers scored 16 runs in taking two of three from the Diamondbacks. Now they get to face Kip Wells of the Rockies and the veteran right-hander is unlikely to be 100% as he makes his first start since opening day! Wells had been hurt and even when he was still pitching with the Rockies he was being used out of the bullpen. He's been roughed up by the Dodgers in his career and he will have a hard time getting back into his groove tonight. That turns this match-up into a very high-scoring game and you'll be there to cash your over ticket!

Re: MONDAY SERVICE PLAYS

Lee Kostroski

Minnesota Twins @ New York Yankees
PICK: New York Yankees

The Twins have greatly struggled against New York in the past few seasons and coming off a tough loss on Sunday and facing travel this could be a tough opening game. Minnesota has lost 22 of the last 30 games at Yankee Stadium and playoff failures in New York still ring for the few remaining players and coaches. New York has won 37 of the last 52 meetings between these teams overall and the Twins have not proven the ability to consistently win on the road. The Yankees remain a very tough home team and this is a team that could make a strong second half charge.

Nick Blackburn has been a great surprise for the Twins this season but he has not pitched well away from home. This will be his first appearance at Yankee Stadium and that can be a daunting challenge.The Twins are just 3-7 in his ten road starts this season and his ERA is nearly two points higher than at the Dome. Opponents are hitting .288 against Blackburn on the road and the patient New York lineup will likely force Blackburn into a higher pitch count. The Twins are rock solid with closer Joe Nathan but the bullpen has struggled in the in-between innings and Blackburn has not gone over seven innings in any of his last eight starts.

Former Twin Sidney Ponson pitched a complete game against his old teammates earlier this season and he has had remarkable success this year. Ponson’s teams are 8-4 in his starts and he pitched extremely well in two of his three starts since joining the Yankees. New York also owns some of the best bullpen numbers in the American League.Coming off a three game sweep of the A’s this will be a big series for the Yankees to pick up some more ground on the rest of the AL and given the history of this series it should be another New York win

Re: MONDAY SERVICE PLAYS

GAMBLERS WORLD TIP OF THE DAY

Milwaukee Brewers vs. St. Louis Cardinals
Prediction: St. Louis Cardinals

A winning streak will be on the line for the Milwaukee Brewers on Monday when they battle the St. Louis Cardinals at Busch Stadium.

Righthander Seth McClung will take the mound for the Brewers to start this game. McClung is 4-4 this season with a 4.39 ERA.

It'll be Joel Pineiro toeing the rubber for the Cardinals in this contest. Righthander Pineiro is 3-4 with a 4.52 ERA so far this season.

Oddsmakers currently have the Cardinals listed as 125-moneyline favorites versus the Brewers, while the game's total is sitting at 9.

The Brewers defeated San Francisco 7-4 as a +125 underdog on Sunday. The 11 runs scored went OVER the posted over/under total (7.5).

Ryan Braun homered and had five RBI for Milwaukee, while Manny Parra allowed two runs on seven hits, while striking out nine in seven 2-3 innings.

The Cardinals defeated San Diego 9-5 as a -130 favorite on Sunday. The 14 runs scored went OVER the posted over/under total (9.5).

Aaron Miles hit a walk-off grand slam home run in the bottom of the ninth inning for St. Louis, while Troy Glaus hit a three-run home run in the win

Jeff Scott Sports

3 UNIT PLAY

Detroit / Kansas City Over 9.5

The Over is 5-1 in Tigers last 6 vs. a team with a losing record and Over is 5-1 in Miners last 6 starts vs. a team with a losing record, while the Over is 10-4 in Royals last 14 games following a win and  7-1 in Royals last 8 during game 1 of a series. Zach Miner is making his first start for the Tigers this year and in his career as a starter he is just 7-7 with a 5.06. This year he has made 32 appearances from the pen and is 3-3 with a 4.23 ERA, plus he has a 19.31 ERA in 2 career starts vs the Royals. Luke Kochevar has been really struggling of late, posting a 7.41 ERA in his last 3 starts and a 5.59 ERA is his last 10 starts. The Detroit offense has come alive lately, hitting .288 and scoring 5.9 rpg in their last 10 games, with those 10 games averaging 10.9 rpg. Detroit also puts up 5.5 rpg and hits .287 at night. The Royals offense has also be good of late as they are averaging 5.7 rpg and hitting .270 over their last 10 games, plus they have put up 5.4 rpg in their last 18 at home. KC's home games this year have averaged just 8.8 rpg overall, but in their last 18 at home that number jumps to 10.6 rpg, while their last 35 games overall have averaged 10.1 rpg. The key here is the resurgent offenses of both squads and i see both teams easily being able to score 5 runs or more in this one, especially with the pitching that is on the mound. Should be an easy over in this one.
