2-Unit Play. Take Over 9.0 San Diego at Cincinnati

Lots of reasons to like this play right here. First, Bronson Arroyo is a mess during the day, posting a healthy 6.75 ERA in his five early starts this year. On top of that, Greg Maddux has a 5.29 ERA in his last three games and a 6.27 ERA on the road this year. The wind is blowing out to right field today and is pretty strong (12 mph), which should be a boon to all of Cincy?s left-handed power hitters. James Hoye is behind the dish and has a hitter-friendly zone. He?s just 8-15 against the total this year but I think that his strike-to-ball ratio, and his past performance, are going to make him a solid regression candidate over baseball?s second half.

1-Unit Play. Take Minnesota (+1.5, -135) over New York Yankees

This isn't a true chase because I don't want to "Let it ride" on the Twins. But if you're feeling frisky, or can't play run lines, I would suggest going with 3 Units on the moneyline here. I do think the Twins find a way to get one in this series, and I think they manufacture a W today.

4.5-Unit Play. Take ‘Over’ 8.5 (+100) Washington at San Francisco

Note: This is our Total of the Week. I would wait on this game to see if it drops to 8.0, as I believe it may.

Kevin Correia has a robust 5.81 ERA on the season, including 7.20 in his last three outings. His opponent, rookie Colin Balester, is sporting a nice 5.87 ERA in this three outings this year. So we have two bad pitchers on the hill. And to add fuel and a spark, give us Gary Darling behind the dish. Darling is 14-6 against the total this year and 14 of his last 19 games have seen double-digits in runs. In all of his ‘under’ games this year there was at least one ace on the hill – Hallday, Lincecum, Duchscherer, Oswalt, and Martinez. We don’t have that today. The ‘over’ is 15-7 in the last 22 meetings in San Francisco, 7-1 in Washington’s last eight as an underdog, 13-6 in San Fran’s last 19 against the N.L. East, and 12-4 in Washington’s last 16 on the road against a poor home team. Two other factors that help our cause: 1) Washington has no closer, meaning their entire bullpen is now unsettled, and 2) the wind is blowing straight out at 12 mph tonight. Hopefully that will help us clear a couple of long balls.


2.5-Unit Play. Take Houston (-130) over Pittsburgh
1.5-Unit Play. Take ‘Under’ 9.5 Pittsburgh at Houston

There are about four different systems that suggest a play on the Astros today. I am going rather light on them, considering, because they looked absolutely pathetic last night. However, Brian Moehler has been a nice surprise for the Astros and he has given his team a shot in every one of his games. Ian Snell – not so much.


2.5-Unit Play. Take ‘Under’ 9.5 Detroit at Kansas City

Despite how they've been swinging them, these clubs have been strong 'under' plays all season and I think we'll find another one here today. The wind is blowing in severely today, at 14 mph, and each team has one of its better pitchers on the hill in Grienke and Galaragga. We have a nice 'under' ump in Mike Estabrook (3-10) and I think we're going to catch the Tigers looking ahead to their series with Chicago this weekend.


2-Unit Play. Take ‘Over’ 9.0 San Diego at Cincinnati
Note: Bump to 2.5-Unit Play.

3 UNIT PLAY

CHISOX -115 over Texas

The Rangers are 4-14 in Millwoods last 18 starts as a road underdog and  5-12 in their last 17 games vs. a left-handed starter, while the White Sox are 22-5 in their last 27 home games vs. a team with a losing road record and 14-5 in their last 19 games as a home favorite of -110 to -150, plus the Home team is 11-3 in Hoyes last 14 games behind home plate. The Rangers have called up Richard Clayton from AAA Charlotte, where he was 6-0 with a 2.37 ERA in 6 games. He will be facing a Texas offense that has really been struggling on this road trip. Texas comes in with teh top ranked scoring offense, but in the first 5 games of this trip they have averaged just 2.2 rpg, plus this team does not hit lefty starters all that well as they have scored just 4.3 rpg vs them on the year. The Rangers also score just 4.8 rpg and hit just .258 on the road this year. The ChiSox offense has not been sputtering of late, as they come in hitting .336 and scoring 6.9 rpg in their last 7 games, plus they score 5.7 rpg at home and 5.2 rpg vs righty starters. Kevin Milwood has been slumping of late, going 1-3 with a 7.09 ERA in his last 5 starts. Kevin is 2-5 with a 5.18 ERA on the road and 1-4 with a 2.81 ERA in 8 career starts vs the Sox, including a 1-2 mark with a 5.60 ERA in his last 3 starts vs them. The rangers offense has taken a vacation at the moment and the Sox offense has not. The Rangers Struggle on the road and the Sox do not struggle at home. Even with te rookie pitcher on the mound I expect the Sox to win the rubber match of this series. 


CINCINNATI -132 over San Diego

The Padres are 3-15 in their last 18 games vs. a right-handed starter and 5-16 in their last 21 games as a road underdog of +110 to +150, while the Reds are 31-13 in their last 44 games as a home favorite of -110 to -150 and 10-2 in Arroyos last 12 starts as a home favorite. Bronson Arroyo got off to a horrible start this year, but he has been pitching much better of late. Bronson comes in with a 4-0 mark and a 2.88 ERA in his last 4 starts and he has gone 3-1 with a 2.09 ERA in his last 6 home starts. He is 3-4 with a 3.98 ERA in his career vs the Padres and he is 1-0 with a 2.69 ERA in 1 start vs the Pads this year. Greg Maddux is 14-5 with a 3.40 ERA in his last 19 starts vs the Reds, but he is just 2-2 with a 5.85 ERA in 6 starts at Great American Ballpark. A little side stat on his starts at GAB, He has allowed 10 HR's there in just 32.1 innings of work. Greg has really struggled this year, going 3-8 with a 4.21 ERA overall, including a 2-5 mark with a 6.27 ERA on the road, plus he is 0-3 with a 9.97 ERA in his last 5 starts. The Padre offense comes in scoring just 3.9 rpg in their last 10 games and they score just 4 rpg on the road and 4.1 rpg in day games. The Pads are 12-18 in day games this year. The Reds offense has been good of late, as they have put up 6.1 rpg in their last 10 games overall, plus they also score 4.8 rpg in day games on the year. Bronson has turned his season around, while Maddux is headed the other way . The Reds take the rubber match here.


2 UNIT PLAYS

NY YANKS -148 over Minnesota

The Twins are 0-6 in their last 6 vs. American League East and 6-21 in the last 27 meetings in New York, while the Yankees are 40-11 in their last 51 during game 3 of a series and 11-3 in Mussinas last 14 starts after scoring 5 runs or more in their previous game. The Yanks are hot right now as they have started the 2nd half 5-0 and they have now won their last 9 in a row at home. Yankee pitching has been awesome in their last 9 at home, allowing just 1.9 rpg over that stretch, while the offense has been solid, scoring 5.2 rpg. The Yanks have in fact scored more runs (20) in the first 2 games of this series, than they have allowed (17) in their 9 game home winning streak. The Yanks have also been awesome in game 3 of a series this year, going 21-5 overall, including 14-1 at home and 9-3 if of a win. Mike Mussina gets the ball for them today and he has been very good thiy year, going 12-6 with a 3.49 ERA overall, including a 7-5 mark with a 3.53 ERA at home. Mike kas really bewen rolling in his last 9 starts, going 5-2 with a 2.63 ERA over that stretch, plus he is 10-7 with a 3.53 ERA in his last 21 starts vs the Twins. Glen Perkins has been decent for teh Twins with a 7-2 mark and a 3.84 ERA overall, including a 3-0 mark with a 3.52 ERA on the road, but he was hit hard in his only appearance vs the Yanks this year, allowing 5 ER on 10 hits and 2 walks in just 4 innings of work. The Yanks really play well vs the Twins at home and they are super in game 3 of a series and I expect both trends to continue after this one. Get out the Broom.

Detroit/ Kansas City Under 9.5

The Under is 8-2-1 in Tigers last 11 during game 3 of a series. and  5-1 in Galarragas last 6 road starts, while the Under is 18-3 in Greinkes last 21 starts when their opponent allows 2 runs or less in their previous game and  7-1-1 in Greinkes last 9 starts with the total set at 9.0-10.5, plus the Under is 14-3 in Estabrooks last 17 games behind home plate. Armando Gallaraga has been one of the more consistent starters for Tigers this year, as he comes in with a 3.41 ERA overall, including a 2.65 ERA on the road and a 1.55 ERA in day games. His road starts this year have averaged 8.9 rpg, while his day starts have averaged 7.4 rpg. The KC offense is avergaing 5 rpg over their last 7 games, but just 3.3 rpg in their last 6 games at home. For the year the Royals score just 4.3 rpg at home, 4 rpg vs righty starters and 4.5 rpg in day games. The Detroit offense has been on fire lately, but they still average just 4.3 on the road and 3.7 rpg in day games. Detroit day games have gone 23-12 to the Under with an average of 8.2 rpg being scored. Zach Greinke has pitched very well at home this year, with a 2.39 ERA, plus he has a 3.16 ERA in day games. Zach's starts this year have avaerged 8.4 rpg overall, icluding 7.4 rpg in his last 3 starts and 7.5 rpg in his day starts. Zach also has a 3.39 ERA in 12 career starts vs the Tigers, including a 1.58 ERA in his last 3 starts vs them.  Both pitchers have been solid this year and should be able to slow down a couple of hot offenses enough to get a comfortable win on the Under.

Washington Nationals vs. San Francisco Giants
Play: Under

Somebody has to actually win this ball game folks. Its a battle of 2 of the worst teams in baseball. One team struggles mightily on the road, the other team is the worst home team in all of a baseball. There is something that people are ignoring though. Playing at home is still an advantage. When two teams are so close, when the line is so close you look for any little advantages you can obtain. I don't expect many runs to be scored and I am all over the UNDER tonight in the bay.

Play on the UNDER

Re: WEDNESDAY SERVICE PLAYS

Pupsnchalk Sports

Detroit Tigers vs. Kansas City Royals
Play: Detroit Tigers     

The way the Detroit Tigers are swinging the bats right now, it's hard to get in their way and make a play against them. Zack Grienke will get the call for the Royals and the assignment of slowing down the Tigers as the Royals hope to avoid a sweep this afternoon.

The Tigers have scored a total of 26 runs in the first two games of the series and will face a pitcher in Grienke who is coming off of a rough outing. The Tigers roster has a combined OPS. of .814 against the right hander who is 0-2 with a 6.43 ERA in his last four starts. Grienke won his first two outings against the Tigers earlier this season, hence the weak line. We expect the Tigers to get to Grienke today with their offense clicking on all cylinders.

Armando Galarraga will be making his first start against the Royals and the right hander has been solid away from home this season. He is 5-2 with a 2.85 ERA in his road games with the Tigers going 6-3 in those starts. He has been spectacular under the sun in day games this year as well going 4-0 with a 1.55 ERA. The Tigers have yet to drop a day game start of his in fact going 5-0 in those starts.

The Royals took the first six games between the two this season before dropping the last two. The Tigers are certainly aware of that and will be motivated to return the favor and complete the sweep. The Tigers are 10-4 in their in game 3's this year following a win in their previous game.Play on the Detroit Tigers for 1 unit.

Re: WEDNESDAY SERVICE PLAYS

Matty O'Shea Triple Dime NL TV Play Of the Month.

NYM/PHI Over 9

After watching the New York bullpen implode in the ninth inning of Tuesday's 8-6 loss to the Phillies, you have to wonder about the team's mindset going into this game. Four different relievers for the Mets surrendered six runs trying to fill in for injured closer Billy Wagner. That definitely works in our favor here along with the fact that both starting pitching are certainly capable of giving up a lot of runs early on. New York's John Maine has seen at least 10 runs scored in each of his last five home starts, with all of them going OVER the total. Meanwhile, Philadelphia's Brett Myers returns from the minors and saw an average of 14 runs scored in his last two road starts. The OVER is also 7-1 in Myers' last eight starts against the Mets, and he is 0-6 on the road with an 8.18 ERA. Look for a high-scoring affair here and bet the OVER as my Triple Dime NL TV Play Of the Month.

STL (+130) vs MIL

So how fun was last night's easy winner on the White Sox! Well today it's time for my Upset Shocker as we are going to go with St. Louis as they stop the streaking Brewers. CC looks to be the missing link for the Brewers but today he tastes defeat for the first time in a Brewer uniform.  St. Louis starter Looper is 14-5 when the total is 8.5 or less. Also note that Milwaukee is 2-11 following 2 straight wins vs division opponents. TAKE ST. LOUIS as MARCO'S UPSET SHOCKER PLAY and make them a DOUBLE DIME PLAY.

Greg Shaker

ATL (-110) vs  FLA

3 UNIT "NL GAME OF MONTH"

There are a lot of things going on in this contest that I like very much and first and foremost in the Atlanta Hurler today. Hudson is one of the toughest Mound Competitors in the Major League's and he is coming off a poor performance. That gives him the desire need to throw a good game today and suspect that he will. He has had great success at this Park but he did not have that success earlier this year. He took the loss at Dolphin Stadium in his only start against the Marlins this season, allowing four runs and six hits in three innings of a 6-5 defeat. That was his first career loss at Florida after going 4-0 with a 2.27 ERA in six starts here. That is motivation enough for this guy. Nolasco has been a huge surprise this year but he will be Under the Gun today. Nolasco has had no luck against the Braves this season, as hes been pounded for 13 runs and 21 hits - including seven home runs - in losing both of his starts against them. Chipper Jones must be licking his chops The All-Star third baseman will look to get things turned around Wednesday, as hes batting .643  with three homers and three doubles lifetime against Mr. Ricky. This is a Big Series for the Braves and they cannot afford to lose this last game. They have the right guy on the mound and they have the right situation. That is why this is My NL GAME OF THE MONTH.

Re: WEDNESDAY SERVICE PLAYS

Nick "BookieKiller" Parsons

BAL / TOR Under 8.5

A low total was posted on this game and many will be jumping on the over because of the recent results for these two clubs. However, the key here is the pitching match-up as the old adage is true that good pitching stops good hitting. The Orioles have scored 40 runs in their 6 games since the All Star Break. All but one of those has gone over the total. As for the Blue Jays, they have scored 26 runs in their last 4 games and all four games went over the total. However, all this slugfest activity comes to an end on Wednesday evening courtesy of AJ Burnett of the Jays and Jeremy Guthrie of the Orioles. Burnett has allowed three earned runs or less in 13 of his last 18 starts. He has been fantastic in each of his last two starts and those came against the Yankees and Rays in AL East action. On Wednesday, Burnett gets a shot at redemption against another AL East foe as he seeks revenge after the Orioles roughed him up earlier this month. In fact, the Orioles have hit Burnett hard in both of his appearances against them this season even though he got the win in the most recent outing. Burnett has some interesting numbers that tell the real story about how hes fared against the Orioles. Even though he has a 5.26 ERA against Baltimore, theyve only hit .234 against him in his career and, from that standpoint, his 6-1 lifetime record against the Orioles is deserved. Look for him to come up with another strong effort on Wednesday evening. The key to the Under in this match-up is that Burnett will be matched by his counterpart, Guthrie, pitch for pitch tonight. The Orioles Guthrie is undefeated in his last six starts and he has also pitched at least six innings in 12 of his last 13 starts. This is key to giving the Baltimore bullpen some much needed rest. Guthrie has also fared well against the Orioles as hes 1-0 with a 2.65 ERA in his five career starts against the Jays. Guthrie has looked very sharp in his last two starts against the Jays and one of those came earlier this month and the other came in June. Overall, Toronto is only hitting .217 against Guthrie and we expect more domination tonight. With the bats finally quieted in his series, tonights Game Three stays well UNDER the total thanks to a pitchers duel between Burnett and Guthrie, two very capable workhorses.

Re: WEDNESDAY SERVICE PLAYS

BIG AL's 100% PERFECT DIVISION GAME OF THE YEAR!

At 7:10pm our selection is on the New York Mets over the Philadelphia Phillies. Philadelphia righthander Brett Myers is back from his "vacation" to the Minor Leagues and will get his first start with the big league club in close to a month. While Myers believes that his time down on the farm has been beneficial and has helped boost his confidence, it doesn't help his cause that, despite a 3.00 ERA down there, he only managed a 1-3 record, which is pretty much in line with his W/L record during his time in the Majors this season before being sent down. For his teammates and fans, it certainly isn't too hard to remember just how bad Myers was for most of May and June. He was easily one of the worst starters out there but would occasionally (very rarely in fact) throw a gem in among all of his horrible outings. The team apparently still believes in Myers as a member of its rotation. However, it also felt the same way about Adam Eaton for a long time (despite many starts that would rival the worst of Myers' performances), but that didn't stop Philadelphia management from reaching out and bringing in veteran Joe Blanton from Oakland and moving Eaton to the bullpen. A similar fate may await Myers if he doesn't make the most of this latest opportunity. Unfortunately, a trip to Queens to face the red-hot Mets and John Maine is not exactly the easiest assignment with which to signal your return to the big league club, especially when you consider that New York is 7-1 in Maine's last eight starts vs. the Phils, and Maine is a perfect 4-0 with a 2.36 career ERA vs. the Phillies. NL East Game of the Year on the Mets.
