James Patrick

White Sox vs. Twins

The Twins have to be very happy to see the Hubert H. Humphrey Dome as they are returning from a brutal road trip. Chicago has struggled in the Twin Cities as they have lost 6 of 8 recent meetings with the Twins in Minnesota and that includes 5 in a row. Minnesota is 18-5 in their recent home games and Monday’s starter Slowley is 6-1 in his home starts. Our Monday American League selection is Minnesota Twins.

In their last 28 games vs. a team with a losing record they are 21-7. Detroit is 10-2 in Rogers last 12 starts as a road favorite. In his last 42 starts as a favorite the Tigers are 31-11. The Indians are 7-16 in their last 23 games vs. a team with a winning record. In their last 30 games as an underdog they are 6-24. Cleveland has lost 6 of Byrd's last 7 starts.

Bryan Leonard

Baltimore Orioles @ New York Yankees
PICK: New York Yankees

The Yankees had their post All-Star game winning streak snapped last night in Boston, but that's probably good news here as they won't enter the game overconfident. New York has won 10 straight in Yankee Stadium and tonight they try to extend their recent surge against the Orioles.

Baltimore will start Jeremy Guthrie knowing that New York averages a solid 5.49 runs per game at home vs right-handed starters. The Orioles are just 3-8 in Guthrie's road starts. They are 2-3 in his last five road outings despite allowing just a single home run against Guthrie in those starts. As hot as the Yankee's lefties are right now we can't expect the Oriole righty to keep the ball in the park tonight.

The Yankees counter with veteran Mike Mussina who has been tremendous for most of the year. "The Moose" has produced 10 straight quality starts entering tonight and he has an amazing 31 to 3 strikeout to walk ratio his last five starts. He has now gone 10 straight starts of six innings or more as he continues to set up the Yankee bullpen to have success. With the back of the New York bullpen rested we can expect a solid pitching performance from the hosts tonight.

The number's a bit cheap considering how well the Yankees are playing and how good Mussina has been as of late.

PLAY NEW YORK

Oakland and Braden -125 over Greinke and KC--The Royals starter is beginning to fade and they suck on the road

Texas +105 and Feldman over Seattle and Felix the King

Boston -145 and Dice K over the Angels--it's revenge time after they got swept out in Anaheim

Dodgers -200 and Kuroda over Correia and the Giants at the Revine.  LA has to keep pace with Arizona so they'll get it done

Houston -155 over Cincy--Cueto isn't the same away from the Queen City and Oswalt is due for a good start

Atlanta -115 and Jo Jo Reyes upset the Cards and Braden Looper.  The Barves are 11 games over .500 at Turner Fioeld and the Cards had a tiring series at Shea, so they'll be flat and sick of the road

This is Jim Feist

DET Tigers and CLE Indians
Take CLE Indians

The reeling Detroit Tigers leave the motor city with their tail between their legs after a beating they took by the White Sox. They look to get well here against the Indians, but that may be easier said then done. The Tigers send Kenny Rogers to the mound who is 8-6 on the season with a 4.55 era. However, against the Indians, he's has a lifetime 5.02 era and has allowed a batting average of .284. The Indians send Paul Byrd to the hill and he finally got a win after five consecutive losses. Byrd pitched a fine one earned run game against the Angels last time out for a 5-2 win. Against the Tigers, Byrd has really shined, with a 9-2 lifetime record and 3.54 era. Byrd has already beaten the Tigers once this year and we don't look for that trend to change here on Monday.

DET Tigers and CLE Indians
Take DET Tigers

The Tigers lost their weekend series to the White Sox but at least salvaged the finale. I like their chances of garnering some good results as they head to Cleveland to take on the towel-tossing Indians, who are in full fledged sell mode. Kenny Rogers should at least equal whatever the Tribe can count on from Paul Byrd, and the Detroit offense is vastly superior to that owned by the Indians. The price is very reasonable, so the Tigers are the selection.

Re: Monday Service Plays

Bobby Maxwell

L.A. Angels +135 at BOSTON 

The Angels are the best road team in baseball at 33-18 away from home. Boston got a late start with their Sunday night game against the Yankees and thus taking away any added benefit of playing at home and getting extra rest.

We'll play Los Angeles in this one as they are 10-3 the last 13 times they've been underdogs and they have won five straight against the Red Sox this season, including two in a row at Fenway.

Jered Weaver (8-8, 4.08 ERA) is on the mound for the Angels against the Red Sox Daisuke Matsuzaka (11-1, 2.63). Weaver has held the opposition to two runs or less in five straight starts and he's held the Red sox to three runs or less in four of his six career starts against them.

The Angels are 21-8 in their last 29 against teams with a winning record and 39-19 in their last 58 overall. We like the way this team is rolling right now and we'll take the plus-money with them tonight.

3♦ L.A. ANGELS

Re: Monday Service Plays

Alex Smart

New York Mets -116

The NY Mets enter into Mondays action against their hosts the Florida Marlins in red hot form having won 15 of their L/19 games overall . NY has also enjoyed playing in Dolphin Stadium, cashing tickets for their backers in 12 of their L/14 outings here. The Marlins, on the other hand, are operating at the proverbial opposite end of the performance spectrum, especially on offense, where their batting order is hitting just .188 during a current 8 game span.

The Mets positive momentum has a good chance of continuing as they send hurler John Maine (9-7, 4.20 ERA) out to hill to face a Marlins team he has had success against in the recent past . The right hander recorded a 3-0 record along with a stingy 2.45 ERA in his four outings against the Marlins during his 2007 campaign, and will primed and motivated to stop them again in this spot.

Meanwhile ,his pitching opponent Ricky Nalasco (10-6, 3.99 ERA)is in a bit of funk, losing his last two outings since the all star break, allowing 9 runs on 15 hits in just 12 innings of work. The former Rialto High School star has not faired well at home in the past against the Mets, registering a 0-2 record along with a ugly looking 9.00 ERA in four appearances ( 2 starts).

The Mets are currently operating on all cylinders, making them good bets against any team in the National League right now.

Final notes & Key Trends: Mets are 22-5 in Maines last 27 starts vs. National League East. Marlins are hitting just .237 at home this season. The Mets David Wright owns a powerful .408 BA in his last 24 games in this series.

Play on the NY Mets

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

There's always good value on the Rays when James Shields takes the mound for them. Tampa Bay is 6-1 in his last seven starts overall. The Rays have also played up to their competition and the proof is in their 11-3 record in their last 14 games against a team with an overall winning record. The Blue Jays, on the other hand, have gone just 2-5 in their last seven games when AJ Burnett starts against a team with an overall winning record.

Re: Monday Service Plays

Big Al McMordie

Arizona D-Backs vs. San Diego Padres    
Play: San Diego Padres 

At 10:05pm our complimentary selection is on the San Diego Padres over the Arizona Diamondbacks. Veteran righthander and future Hall of Famer Greg Maddux has gone an incredible thirteen starts without a victory and in more than one of those outings, he has been the victim of weak run support, poor defense, and sub-par relief pitching from his teammates. But he has continued to stay focused and has really pitched pretty well through this unfortunate streak, keeping his ERA only slightly above four runs per game, despite only three wins on the season. Tonight could be the night that Maddux breaks through against a D-Backs team that has struggled on the road this season. After being demoted to the bullpen earlier in the month, 25-year-old righthander Micah Owings returns to the rotation for this start. Owings was having problems with his mechanics which seemingly has turned him from an extremely effective starter to a pitcher struggling to gain his control in the second half of only his second season in the Majors. He has been working with pitching coach Brian Price on this mechanical problem and there's no way to know whether the work has paid off until Owings steps on the mound tonight. With trade rumors swirling around veteran Maddux (the most likely scenario has him going to division rival Los Angeles), expect him to come out and put on a clinic this evening and earn his first victory since May 10. Take the Padres.

Re: Monday Service Plays

Carlo Campanella

Arizona Diamondbacks at San Diego Padres

The Padres start Greg Maddux on the mound to host Arizona on Monday. At 42 years-old, Maddux isn't the same pitcher he once was, clearly indicated by his 3-8 record this season. In fact, SD has lost 5 of his last 6 trips to the mound, including 4 in a row. His arm is feeling the ware and tear as this is his 23rd start of the year and he has been knocked out in 6 Innings or less in 16 of his first 22 starts. Arizona already shelled Maddux, 9-0, back on April 18 and things only get worse as the arm gets more tired.

Play on: Arizona

Vegas Experts

Cincinnati Reds at Houston Astros

Cincinnati simply got owned over the weekend, by Colorado of all teams and at home no less. Sunday's 11-0 setback was pretty much the capper and tonight they begin a new series against Houston and Roy Oswalt, who has absolutely owned the Reds throughout his career. How dominant has Oswalt been against his division rival? How about 18-1 lifetime? Astros took both earlier season meetings as well.

Play on: Houston

Chicago Cubs (61-44) at Milwaukee Brewers (60-45)

The Chicago Cubs have played horrible away from home, dropping 13 of their last 19 road games. The Cubs will have a big task facing Milwaukee’s CC Sabathia (10-8, 3.30) tonight in Milwaukee, who is 3-0 with a 1.00 ERA in his last three starts.

Go with Milwaukee at Miller Park with CC Sabathia on the hill. The Brewers have won nine of their last 11 games and are 4-0 in lefthander CC Sabathia last 4 starts. Chicago's Ted Lilly (10-6, 4.49), is 1-2 with a 5.64 ERA in five outings, including four starts versus Milwaukee.

Milwaukee Brewers -175

Tony Karpinski

Chicago White Sox vs. Minnesota Twins    
Play: Over   

For more than two months, the Chicago White Sox have controlled the AL Central. To continue controlling it, they'll need to continue their recent success against the Minnesota Twins. The White Sox look to distance themselves from the second-place Twins as the division rivals open a four-game set on Monday at the Metrodome. Chicago (59-44) has not been out of first place since May 16, and maintained its perch over the weekend by taking two of three from Detroit to start its 10-game road trip. The White Sox, however, dropped Sunday's series finale 6-4 and watched their division lead shrink to just 2 1/2 games over Minnesota, which won 4-2 at Cleveland. Look for both teams to hit in the dome and you can expect plenty of runs on Monday night. Play on the OVER

New York Mets at Florida Marlins

The New Mets come into this game in 1st place in the NL East and in their last game beat the St. Louis Cardinals 9-1, while the Marlins lost to the Cubs 9-6. The NL East race is very tight, as even though the Mets are in 1st place they only lead the Marlins by 2 games. In their last 10 games the Mets are 6-4, while the Marlins are 5-5 in their last 10 games. Nobody thought the Fish would be in the race at this point in the season, but they are hanging around and are a force to reckon with in the division. Taking the mound for the Mets is John Maine (9-7 4.20 ERA), who in his last start went 7 innings giving up 3 earned runs in a win. In yesterdays win over the Cardinals the Mets scored 9 runs on 17 hits and left 9 men on base. On defense the Mets gave up only 1 run on 6 hits. Taking the mound for the Marlins is Ricky Nolasco, who in his last outing went 5 innings giving up 5 earned runs in a loss. In yesterdays loss to the Cubs the Marlins scored 6 runs on 9 hits and left 6 men on base. On defense the Marlins gave up 9 runs on 12 hits to the Cubs.

Staff Pick: The Mets are on fire lately winning 15 of their last 19 games, which has launched them to 1st place in the division. The Marlins are staying in the race even though in their last 8 games they are hitting .190, but have gone yard 11 times in that span. The pitching match up in this game has to go to the Mets, as Marlins starter Nolasco is 0-2 in his last 2 games giving up 15 hits and 9 runs in only 12 innings of work. Mets starter Maine hopes he can pitch like last year against the Marlins, where he went 3-0 with a 2.45 ERA and 38 strikeouts in 25 2/3 innings over 4 starts against Florida in 2007. Nolasco is 2-0 with a 2.77 ERA in his last three games against the Mets. The Mets begin a 6 game road trip tonight and want to stay atop the NL East, while they are away from Shea and this series in the Sunshine State is a big one. The Mets are under .500 on the road, but have been playing well as of late. The Mets are hot, have a hotter pitcher on the mound, and do not want to relinquish 1st place in the NL East. Even with all the chips stacked against them the Marlins are coming home and the home field advantage will push them over the top, as they will win the 1st game of this series.

Marlins 7 Mets 3

1 Unit on Tampa Bay Rays +103

The Rays have had Toronto 's number in the AL East.  The Rays are 8-2 in the last 10 meetings and 5-0 in Shields' last 5 starts vs. the Blue Jays.  The Blue Jays are 0-5 in Burnett's last 5 starts vs. the Rays.  The Rays are 6-1 in Shields' last 7 starts and 5-0 in Shields' last 5 starts during game 1 of a series.The Blue Jays are playing well, but their problems with the Rays will continue tonight.
