FRIDAY SERVICE PLAYS

Re: FRIDAY SERVICE PLAYS

Wunderdog

Los Angeles at Baltimore
Pick: Los Angeles -133

The Angels own the best record in baseball and are red hot. The Angels are winners of seven of their last eight. They also own the best road record by far at 31-18, and have been destroying LHP to the tune of a 19-6 record. The Orioles hung in their for a while, but are now on a 4-12 run and have been playing rather poorly even at home where they are now just 3-7 over their last 10 home games. Joe Saunders is on his way to a potential 20-win season, and the Angels are 14-5 in his first 19 starts as Saunders has not allowed more than three runs over his last six starts. After a good start and ERA of 3.18 into late May, Brian Burres has pitched to a 7.28 ERA over his last 10 starts and has been highly ineffective. We like the Angels to take the opener here.

PRICELESS PICKS

1 Unit on Toronto Blue Jays -158

The Mariners are just 7-20 in the last 27 meetings in Toronto .  This doesn't surprise me at all since many teams struggle when playing on the opposite side of the country.  The Mariners are 0-5 in their last 5 overall and just 10-23 in their last 33 vs. the American League East.  The Blue Jays are 7-1 in their last 8 home games and 5-0 in their last 5 games as a favorite.  Bet the Blue Jays.

Colorado @ Cincinnati
Play On: 3* Cincinnati -140

Colorado is 4-15 this year when the total is 8 to 8 1/2. Colorado is 13-35 on the road this year. Cincinnati is 42-25 last 3 years when playing in Friday. Colorado is scoring only 3.5 runs per game on the road this year and 4.1 runs per game against right handed starters this season. Cincinnati bullpen has a 3.53 ERA overall this year and a 3.08 ERA at home this season. Volquez is 12-3 with a 2.49 ERA in all games this year, 12-2 with a 2.53 ERA in all starts this year, 6-0 with a 2.82 ERA at home and 2-0 his last 3 starts. Cook has a 7.79 ERA overall vs Cincinnati since 1997. We'll play Cincinnati for 3 units tonight!

Tony Karpinski

LAA Angels vs. Baltimore Orioles
Play: LAA Angels 

Joe Saunders has enjoyed plenty of success against the team he grew up watching. The Los Angeles All-Star looks to remain perfect against the Baltimore Orioles when the first-place Angels open a 10-game road trip Friday night at Camden Yards. Saunders (12-5, 3.05 ERA), who grew up in Springfield, Va., about 60 miles from Baltimore, is 3-0 with a 5.63 ERA against the Orioles. Baltimore dropped two of three at Los Angeles from May 2-4 and look for the hottest team in baseball to get another win on Friday night. Play on the ANGELS

Re: FRIDAY SERVICE PLAYS

Michael Cannon

NY Yankees at BOSTON -130

Take the Red Sox tonight when they host their bitter rivals, the Yankees.

Josh Beckett will get the start and he's won his previous three starts against New York.  The right-hander is 7-3 in 11 career games versus the Yankees.

Joba Chamberlain will start for the Pin strippers as he continues his transition from the bullpen to starter.  The right-hander has done well, but has yet to pitch through the seventh inning in any of his nine starts.

This is the kind of game that the starters are going to have to log some quality innings, as both bullpens haven't been all that great, and Beckett gives the Red Sox the best chance at pitching deep into the game more than Chamberlain.

Take the Red Sox as they grab the home win.

3♦ BOSTON

Re: FRIDAY SERVICE PLAYS

Brian Marshall

St. Louis Cardinals vs. New York Mets
Play On: New York Mets -1.5 Runs +125

The St. Louis Cardinals will be lead by starting pitcher Mitchell Boggs. Mitchell Boggs has been struggling this season. In fact, Mitchell Boggs has a 6.59 ERA on the season. Mitchell Boggs also has a 7.27 ERA in his last 3 starts. We see Mitchell Boggs giving up many runs once again today.

The New York Mets will be lead by starting pitcher Mike Pelfrey. Mike Pelfrey has pitched well this season which is shown by his 3.81 ERA on the season. Mike Pelfrey also has a 2.05 ERA in his last 3 starts. We see Mike Pelfrey giving up very few hits and runs today.

The New York Mets are 10-1 in their last 11 home games, and should be able to get another blowout win tonight!

Take the New York Mets -1.5 Runs

Re: FRIDAY SERVICE PLAYS

LT Profits

Chicago White Sox +110

Gavin Floyd has quietly put together an All-Star caliber season for the Chicago White Sox, and he gives them the edge as underdogs tonight vs. the struggling Nate Robertson of the Detroit Tigers.

Floyd has gone 10-6 with a nice 3.52 ERA and 1.20 WHIP in 117.2 innings, and a case can be made that he has been the best pitcher on the Sox staff this season, or at least on par with Mark Buehrle. More importantly, Floyd has been brilliant vs. the Tigers in his brief career, tossing five consecutive Quality Starts against them since last year including allowing a total of three runs and seven hits in 13.1 innings over two starts this year! Should Floyd be in need of relief, the White Sox bullpen ranks sixth in the majors with a collective 3.29 ERA.

Meanwhile, Nate Robertson has been terrible this year and is not getting any better, and he simply cannot be trusted as a favorite. He is 608 with a 5.69 ERA and 1.54 WHIP for the whole season and he has a 6.28 ERA in his last three starts. He even failed to last three innings in his last outing vs. the Baltimore Orioles after the Tigers had staked him to a 6-0 lead.

Finally the Tigers, as a team, are just 2-6 the last eight times Robertson has started against Chicago, and given the year that Floyd is having, look for that pattern to continue.

Pick: White Sox +110


Atlanta Braves +105

The visiting Atlanta Braves appear to hold the pitching advantage here with Jair Jurrjens facing Kyle Kendrick of the Philadelphia Phillies, so the Braves get the mild upset call here.

Jurrjens is 9-5, and the Braves are 12-7 as a team in all the games that he has started. This from a squad that is five games under .500 overall at 48-53. Jurrjens has not minded pitching on the road either, as he has a 3.16 ERA and 1.21 WHIP in nine starts away from home, and he has allowed a grand total of one run and 16 hits in 21.2 innings in his last three road starts.

Kendrick may be 8-4 for the Phillies, but that is entirely due to great run support as he has a high 4.87 ERA and a terrible 1.50 WHIP in 109 innings. He is not getting any better either, with a 6.48 ERA and dreadful 1.86 WHIP in his last three starts. It does not help his cause that the Phillies are not playing good baseball right now, as they would be on a five-game losing streak if not for a ninth inning rally in the opener of the Mets series.

Finally, the road team is 7-2 in the nine meeting between these clubs this season.

Pick: Braves +105

1 Unit on Chicago White Sox +105 

We'll take the Sox showing solid value on the road.  The Tigers are 1-5 in Robertson's last 6 home starts vs. the White Sox while the White Sox are 5-1 in Floyd's last 6 starts vs. the Tigers.  The White Sox are 6-0 in their last 6 games following an off day and 6-1 in their last 7 games vs. a left-handed starter.  The Sox are also 7-3 in Floyd's last 10 starts overall and 5-1 in Floyd's last 6 starts vs. the American League Central.  The Tigers are just 6-16 in Robertson's last 22 starts vs. the American League Central.  Bet the South Siders.

Re: FRIDAY SERVICE PLAYS

Ben Burns

Minnesota Twins @ Cleveland Indians
PICK: Cleveland Indians

This price is too steep to qualify as one of my guaranteed selections. However, if you've followed my complimentary selections in the past, you'll have noticed that we tend to fare quite well with these more expensive releases and that "value" can often be found even with larger favorites. In this case, I expect the Indians to have a significant advantage. For starters, the Indians just got swept at Minnesota earlier this month. That should ensure that they'll be "extra motivated" to serve up some payback for tonight's series opener. More importantly, the matchup of Hernandez vs. Lee is a serious mismatch. Indeed, Lee can become the first pitcher in the big leagues to win 14 games tonight and has the second best ERA, at 2.31. Meanwhile, Hernandez has allowed more hits than any other pitcher in baseball!

Lee is 13-2 on the season. That includes a perfect 5-0 record here at home. Lee has an outstanding 1.62 ERA and 0.98 WHIP in those games. In his most recent start here, Lee held the Rays to just five hits through six scoreless innings, striking out seven while walking only one. The Indians won that game by a score of 5-0. Conversely, Hernandez is 2-5 with a horrible 7.48 ERA and 1.824 WHIP on the road this season. In his most recent road start, he allowed 11 hits and six runs in just 4 2/3 innings. The Twins lost that game by a score of 18-5!

Lee has also been much better against the Twins than Hernandez has been vs. the Indians. For his career, Lee is 6-3 with a 3.89 ERA in 14 starts vs. the Twins. That includes a 1-1 mark with a stellar 2.40 ERA in two outings this season. On the other hand, Hernandez has a horrific 10.00 ERA in two starts vs. Cleveland, allowing 10 runs in just nine innings. Should he struggle again, Hernandez doesn't figure to get much help from the bullpen either. That's because the Twins' relievers have a combined 6.21 ERA and 1.635 WHIP on the road this season. Consider 'laying the price' with the Tribe, listing Lee and Hernandez.

Re: FRIDAY SERVICE PLAYS

Matty O'Shea Double Dime NL Value Play O' the Week

NYM -1.5 (+120) vs STL

The Mets have won the last eight times Mike Pelfrey has gone to the mound, with all the wins decided by at least two runs. The last time Pelfrey started at Shea Stadium, he pitched eight scoreless innings in a 7-0 victory against the Rockies right before the All-Star break. In fact, he has not allowed a run at Shea in his last two starts there totaling 15 innings. Meanwhile, Mitchell Boggs will be making his first start since July 3nd against New York, when he surrendered 11 runs and 10 hits in six innings of an 11-1 loss. Look for another rout here and take the Mets on the runline as my Double Dime NL Value Play O' the Week.


Matty O'Shea Double Dime AL Value Play O' the Week

CLE -1.5 (+110) vs MIN

There will not be a bigger pitching mismatch between two American League teams this weekend. Cleveland's Cliff Lee is a perfect 5-0 in seven home starts with a stellar 1.62 ERA. Of his last 11 wins, 10 have been decided by two runs or more. Meanwhile, Minnesota's Livan Hernandez is 2-5 in nine road starts with a 7.48 ERA. In the last three road starts for Hernandez, the Twins have been outscored by a combined margin of 41-9 (that is not a misprint). Look for the Tribe to pound the Twins in this one and bet them on the runline as my Double Dime AL Value Play O' the Week.

Re: FRIDAY SERVICE PLAYS

Steve Zukiel Guaranteed Selections

Seattle vs Toronto
Play: Toronto -120

These two teams are headed in opposite directions. The Jays finally got back to .500 after sweeping Baltimore yesterday, and in fact, they come into this one on a three game winning streak, and have scored 22 runs in the process. That certainly is great news for us because Seattle has given up a whopping 29 runs in their last five games, all of them losses. The pitching matchup also favors the Jays as John Parrish looks to remain perfect on the year, while Miquel Batista is looking to get just anything going. Parrish is 2-0 this season and the Jays have won all three. I like how he has looked at home, as the ERA has dipped to 2.77. Batista on the other hand, is just 3-9 on the season and his ERA is at 7.23. Ugly. The team has won just five of his 16 overall starts.

Seattle owns one of the worst records in baseball and the Jays are starting to turn things on. I think Toronto should be favored by much, much more. Take the Jays in this one.

1* on New York Yankees +118

The Yankees are rolling right now and they finally have the kind of momentum needed to steal a road victory at nemesis Boston tonight.  The Yankees have won six straight games heading into action Friday.  Joba Chamberlain has been on top of his game on the road this year.  Chamberlain offers a 1-1 road record with a miniscule 1.86 ERA in three starts.  Josh Beckett has been just average at home this year with a 4.82 ERA and he’s been human as of late with a 5.68 ERA in his last three starts.  The Yankees own a 12-9 record at Fenway Park over the last 3 seasons.  Boston is 5-13 (-12.2 Units) against the money line revenging a one run loss to opponent this season.  The Yankees’ time is now to show Boston they are here until the end starting with Game 1 of this series.  Take the Yankees on the Money Line.
