TUESDAY SERVICE PLAYS

Re: TUESDAY SERVICE PLAYS

Jorge Gonzalez

Baltimore Orioles vs. New York Yankees   
Play:Yankees -1.5

The Bronx Bombers passed up a great opportunity to gain ground on the D-rays when they were clubbed 13-4 by the Orioles and the Rays of Tampa Bay fell to the Toronto Blue Jays 3-1. The Yankees were never in the game as they trailed 11-0 before they even got any runs up on the board. The Yankees have lost two straight games after winning eight straight games since the All-Star break. The Orioles will be sending the struggling Daniel Cabrera (6-6, 4.86 ERA) to the mound while the Yankees will counter with Darrell Rasner. (5-7, 4.83) Both pitchers have been less than impressive over their last three starts. After an impressive start to the season Cabrera has struggled as of late with a record of 1-5 with a 6.15 ERA in 12 starts. During the 12 starts Cabrera has walked 40 batters. Control has always been a problem with Cabrera. Cabrera led the major leagues in walks last season with 108 walks. Putting the Yankees on base will be a sure recipe for disaster. Despite the two loses the Yankees have been hitting the ball well over their 10 games batting .299 as a team and scoring 5.5 runs per contest. On their home field, the Yankees have won 10 of their last 11 games. Not to take anything away from the Orioles who scored a season high 13 runs yesterday, but the chances of them repeating on their best game of the season against the Yankees here in this spot will not be likely. Darrell Rasner has already faced the Orioles twice this season limiting them to one run on 10 hits over 13 innings. With days numbered on Yankee Stadium, I expect to see a lot of emotion and fireworks out of the Yankee line-up down the stretch of the regular season.

Cincinnati vs Houston
PLAY OVER 9.5

Simply a case of two starters in poor current form. Arroyo carries a lofty 7.35 road era into tonights game, and was shelled back in April by the Astros getting tagged for 8 earned runs. Same story for Moehler who has 5.87 era in his last 3 starts, 0-4 vs the Reds with a whopping 8.10 era in those contests.

Baltimore + over New York

The Yankees are playing well right now but last night the Orioles proved they are not intimidated and still fighting this season. The Yankees are 3-7 in Darrell Rasner?s last ten starts and his overall ERA is 4.83 on the season. In four of his last seven starts he has allowed four or more runs and the Yankees bullpen has seen a lot of work the last two nights. Daniel Cabrera has been a much better pitcher on the road this season and he has beat New York twice already this season with impressive efforts. Baltimore has actually won six of ten meetings so far this season and New York could fall for the third straight game tonight.

Re: TUESDAY SERVICE PLAYS

LT Profits

Florida Marlins +110

Oliver Perez has certainly been lights out for the New York Mets lately, but he has been inconsistent his whole career and imploded when you least expect it, and he has his difficulties with the Florida Marlins recently.

In fact, Perez has had two bad outings in his last three starts against the Marlins. The last time he faced them, he was touched up for five earned runs and needed 100 pitches just to get through six innings. Also, as great as Perez has been since that start, he has run up some big pitch counts so it is just a matter of time until he wears down as he has routinely done in the past.

Now Scott Olsen of the Fish has been erratic as well, but he has still shown marked improvement from previous seasons. He has done his best pitching here at home where he has a nice 3.12 ERA and 1.23 WHIP in 75 innings. In fact, Olsen has allowed three earned runs or less in each of his last five home starts.

The Marlins scored five runs in the eighth to win 7-3 here last night, and we look for them to make it two straight wins over the Mets tonight.

Pick: Marlins +110


Chicago White Sox +110

Clayton Richard was not that great in his major league debut for the Chicago White Sox, but we look for the highly touted prospect to improve with one start under his belt and handle the Minnesota Twins here tonight.

Sure, Richard allowed four earned runs and seven hits in four innings, but it is not as if there were no highlights as Richard did have seven strikeouts vs. just one walk. The young southpaw also had a great strikeout to walk ratio in the minors, so he will only get better as he gains more experience in the majors.

Glenn Perkins has also shown some nice flashes for the Twins, but he is coming off of possibly his worst start of the season vs. the New York Yankees, as he was reached for five earned runs and nine baserunners in six innings. He was not that effective in his only other start against the White Sox either, as he allowed eight baserunners in 5.1 innings of a 7-5 Minnesota loss.

Finally, the White Sox have pummeled southpaws to the tune of a .311 average the last10 games, which also does not bode well for Perkins here.

Pick: White Sox +110

Re: TUESDAY SERVICE PLAYS

Dave Malinsky

St. Louis Cardinals @ Atlanta Braves
PICK: 4* ST. LOUIS/ATLANTA Over

It has been a pair of no-sweat wins with 4* Atlanta Over tickets the last two days, and with many of the same elements in play, we will absolutely put that money on the counter again. The Braves are now on a run in which their last 11 games have seen 136 runs hit the board (12.4 per outing), with nine of those games reaching double figures. Now we have another hot night with vulnerable starters, and that means plenty of opportunities for this one to break open.

The Atlanta bullpen is a mess right now, not just in terms of the quality of performances, but also in how much of the recent load they have had to carry - the starters have only contributed 9.1 innings over the last three games. With Jorge Campillo clearly a wild card tonight, it could be more of the same. Campillo is being brought back two days after Sunday’s rain-shortened stint at Philadelphia, but note that he had already thrown 28 pitches before that game went into a delay. That will cause some rhythm issues for him early, as well as fatigue later, as is the fact that he has not worked from this mound since July 2nd, an ugly outing in a loss to the Phillies. And if he does run into trouble the options for Bobby Cox are not good, with key middle reliever Gary Bennett burned out off of 2.1 innings last night, and few fresh arms with any positive form.

The Braves continue to hit and score, however, even without Chipper Jones and Brian McCann. Although they did not maximize their opportunities last night they had 10 hits, the fifth straight game that they have reached double figures, and they can be counted on to produce vs. Todd Wellemeyer. We cashed a 4* ticket with Milwaukee against Wellemeyer and the Cardinals in his last start, noting the signs of fatigue that could be expected from a former reliever at this time of the season, and while he only allowed two runs over five innings in that game he played with fire the entire way - 10 of the 24 batters he faced reached via either a hit or a walk, and he issued five free passes vs. only two strikeouts. In July he has labored to a 6.51 tune over 27.2 innings, and note his count of 35 hits vs. 11 strikeouts, after it had been 77 vs. 67 entering the month. There is little reason to fear any kind of turnaround from him here, and an inconsistent Cardinal bullpen (Izzie the closer again?) leaves the door open in the latter innings as well.

Re: TUESDAY SERVICE PLAYS

The Duke's Sports

*Best Bet* Minnesota (-130) for 3 Units

The Twins are playing extremely well at home (19-7 run) and control a 4-0 run in this series. With a favorable pitching matchup, we like our chances here. The Twins' Glen Perkins is coming off a sluggish outing vs NYY but should bounce back here; after all, he has thrown well at home for most of the season and has a sharp bullpen (1.92 ERA @ home) to fall back on. Perkins has allowed just 3 ER or less in 8 of last 9 starts. On the other hand, a tough task awaits for the 'Sox Clayton Richard who will make his first road start after getting hit hard last Wednesday vs Texas, yet the ChiSox rallied behind him to win. Tonight, however, we'll look for limited run support for him, and the ChiSox' bullpen should continue their sluggishness (6.82 ERA last 10). The White Sox are just 10-17 as a road dog in this price range and should fall to the home-strong Twins.


Los Angeles Angels (+105) for 2 Units

The Angels flourish on the road following a win (24-10) and we'll take our chances with John Lackey on the hill. Lackey, although he's had a rough time this month, is the ultimate competitor and should rise to the occasion with another strong outing vs Boston. He pitched well in his last outing vs Boston. And we do know that Lackey has had loads of trouble vs Boston in the past; however, again, he is extremely competitive and a big game pitcher and understands the importance of preparation and the significance of this game. Moreover, the Angels' bullpen remains strong (2.90 ERA last 10). On the other hand, Clay Buchholz (2-5 5.81 ERA) has not exhibited the control to strike fear into a heating up Angels' lineup. We'll roll with the Angels.

Re: TUESDAY SERVICE PLAYS

Dwayne Bryant

Arizona Diamondbacks at San Diego Padres 
Pick: Arizona +117

San Diego's Chris Young hasn't pitched since being hit in the face by a line drive off the bat of St. Louis' Albert Pujols on May 21, leaving the right-hander with a broken nose and fractured skull. After several simulated games and two rehab starts with Class-A Lake Elsinore, Young makes his first MLB start since the injury.

Young is 1-3 with a 5.08 ERA in seven career starts versus Arizona. San Diego has lost all five of Young's starts against Arizona in 2007-08. Despite pitching very well at home (2.57 ERA), the Padres are just 2-3 in Young's home starts. That's because the Padres are only averaging 2.6 runs per game in Young's home starts this season. Young has struggled in his seven starts under the lights, posting a 5.66 ERA, 1.69 WHIP and .364 OOBP while getting just 2.7 runs per game in support.

Arizona's Doug Davis is 0-2 with a 5.25 ERA in four starts in July after going 1-0 with a 2.45 ERA in his previous four outings. But this appears to be a great spot for Davis to get back on track. He faced San Diego once this season and pitched well (8 IP, 7 H, 3 ER, 7 K, 1 BB) despite getting the loss. Before that start, Davis' team had won seven straight in his starts against the Padres. In fact, Davis has made five straight (and 7-of-8) Quality Starts against San Diego. With San Diego batting .226 and scoring just 3.16 runs per game at home vs. lefties, Davis' success against the Padres should continue tonight.

Arizona is 6-1 in their last 7 games following a loss, 5-1 in their last 6 games vs. a starter with a WHIP greater than 1.30, and 5-1 in their last 6 when their opponent scored 5 runs or more in their previous game. San Diego is 2-10 in their last 12 games as a home favorite, 1-7 in Young's last 8 starts as a favorite of -110 to -150, and 1-9 in Young's last 10 starts vs. a team with a winning record.

Take Arizona

Black Magic Sports

1 Unit on Philadelphia Phillies -149

Brett Myers should be able to find his groove tonight against a terrible Washington team scoring just 3.5 runs per game at home this season.  Myers has allowed 3 earned runs or less in each of his last three starts against the Nationals.  Collin Balester is 0-2 with an atrocious 7.04 ERA through his last three starts for Washington.  The Phillies are 41-15 after allowing 8 runs or more 2 straight games since 1997.  Washington is 4-19 after scoring 1 run or less this season.  The Nationals are just 6-24 after playing 4 or more consecutive road games this season.

Re: TUESDAY SERVICE PLAYS

Stephen Nover

Los Angeles Angels @ Boston Red Sox
PICK: Boston Red Sox -115

REASON FOR PICK: There's been a lot of early movement on this game and the marketplace has it right. The Red Sox are the play here, not the Angels.

On the surface, it may seem like the Angels have a pitching edge with John Lackey against Clay Buchholz. But Lackey is in terrible form and Buchholz pitches much better at Fenway Park where he's 2-1 with a 2.42 ERA.

Boston's best bullpen arms are rested and ready, too. Let's also keep in mind the Red Sox are a strong 37-14 at home this year.

Lackey has a 7.30 ERA in his last four starts, yielding 20 earned runs and 35 hits in 23 2/3 innings during this span. He's having trouble getting his breaking ball over and problems locating his fastball.

Manny Ramirez has a career batting average above .500 versus Lackey. Other Red Sox hit Lackey well, too. David Ortiz and Dustin Pedroia are batting more than .400 against Lackey, while J.D. Drew, Kevin Youkilis and Alex Cora are hitting above .300 versus Lackey.

Career-wise, Lackey is 2-6 against the Red Sox with a 6.01 ERA

Re: TUESDAY SERVICE PLAYS

John Ryan

Cincinnati Reds at Houston Astros
Prediction: Houston Astros

Ai Simulator 3* graded play on the Astros ? I am now back up to speed after a wonderful week long break so expect my complete standard of extensive research with every premium card. This play is essentially a play against starter gem as Bronson Arroyo is not in a good spot for a win. He is just 6-19 (-14.7 Units) against the money line in road games when playing against a team with a losing record over the last 3 seasons; 2-10 (-9.0 Units) against the money line in road games when playing against a team with a losing record in the second half of the season over the last 3 seasons. Supporting this graded play is a system that has gone 75-26 for 74% making 38.7 units since 1997. Play against road teams that are poor hitting teams batting <=.250 and is now facing a decent NL starting pitcher sporting an ERA=3.70 to 4.20 and is a cold hitting team batting .240 or worse over their last 10 games. Since 1997, Arroyo is just 4-15 losing 13.4 units when the game is lined between +125 and -125. Now, what adds to the value and opportunity for this play is the simple fact that Arroyo has been a hot pitcher. Arroyo has won five straight games since he suffered the worst outing of his career on June 24 at Toronto. In his last start, he beat the Padres with seven solid innings, allowing just three runs on four hits with no walks and seven strikeouts. Through his last five starts, Arroyo is 5-0 with a 3.19 ERA. He last faced the Astros on April 23 when he gave up eight runs on 10 hits with a walk and five strikeouts in 3 2/3 innings of a losing effort. The public sees this as well and acts on those results believing that it will certainly occur again tonight. One example of why the public loses money over time as they are almost always backing plays aggressively on teams/players that are near their peak performance run. It brings to light the fact that if you play against -250 favorites you will have made profits in 12 straight years. Take Houston

Re: TUESDAY SERVICE PLAYS

Wunderdog

New York at Florida
3 units Florida +119

While Oliver Perez was the Mets stopper on the road last season compiling an 8-4 mark, it has been a different story this season, where they stand at 5-6 in his road starts. There is no place like home for Scott Olsen, where the Marlins have been 8-4 in his 12 home starts while he has put up a sparkling 3.12 ERA. Florida has shown signs of heating up winning three of four with two of those wins were in Chicago where no one has been beating the Cubs. The Mets have been a hot team, but are showing signs of dropping off after losing two of their last three. We will back the Marlins as a divisional home dog here.


Chicago at Milwaukee
3 units Milwaukee -1.5 runs +171

The Brewers and the Cubs square off in game 2 in Milwaukee tonight. The Brewers have put some heat on the Cubs as they are just two games back. The Brew Crew got there with the help of a 37-19 run in their last 56 games. The Cubs meanwhile, have settled back to just 17-19 in their last 36 games. A healthy Ben Sheets has allowed two runs or less in nine of his last 12 starts. Carlos Zambrano has also pitched well, but of the Cubs three losses in his home starts, two came at the hands of the Brewers, and he has only led the Cubs to a 5-4 road mark. The Cubs are just 7-13 in their last 20 on the road and 8-14 on the season when taking to the road against winning teams. Overall the Cubs have a 4-5 mark against winning teams with Zambrano on the hill, and just 1-3 on the road with Zambrano carrying a hefty 5.68 ERA in those games. The Brewers win this one comfortably, so we will opt for the runline value here.


Seattle at Texas
3 units Texas -1.5 runs +128

No one expected the Rangers to go this deep into the season above .500 and hanging in wildcard contention. They have done it by simply outscoring teams, especially at home, and especially against RHP. The Rangers have struggled against southpaws, where they are just 11-22, but against the righties Texas has been 43-30. The Rangers have exploded for 159 runs in their last 23 home games or nearly seven a game. This is a Seattle team that is just 5-13 over their last 18 games. In their last 52 losses they have lost by two or more runs in 39 of them or 75% of the time. There is lots of value with the high-scoring Rangers on the runline.
