3Daily Winners

Minnesota Twins vs. Seattle Mariners 
Play: Minnesota Twins

Minnesota has lost first two games of the series and this could prove to be fatal blow at the end of the season to be swept by sickly Seattle. To the Twins credit they are at least hitting the ball and are perfect 11-0 against the money line with an on base percentage of .393 or better over their last three games this season. The Mariners have also been swinging hot bats, unfortunately are 4-19 after two or more consecutive Over's this season. Minnesota sinks Seattle's ship today.

Marco D'Angelo

OAK (+120) vs TOR

Tonight Oakland sends Gio Gonzalez to the mound in his major league debut. You know I'm a Big fan of taking a pitcher in his first start as he has a tremendous advantage over the hitters. In 123 innings of work Gonzalez struck out 128 batters. Look for him to baffle the Blue Jays tonight. TAKE OAKLAND as MARCO'S BASEBALL UPSET SHOCKER and make them a DOUBLE DIME PLAY.

Re: Wednesday Service Plays

Ted Sevransky

Los Angeles Dodgers @ St. Louis Cardinals
PICK: Over

Joel Pineiro pitches to contact, averaging less than half a strikeout per inning. For much of the season, his ability to keep the ball down, forcing ground ball outs, was paramount to his success. But Pineiro has been unable to do that in recent starts. Six of his last seven opponents had at least ten hits against him, and in his last three starts, he’s allowed five home runs after allowing only eight dingers in his first 15 starts of the 2008 campaign. Facing a Dodgers offense that is starting to click now that Manny Ramirez has given them a real spark in the middle of the batting order, look for Pineiro’s struggles to continue tonight. And with the Cardinals bullpen blowing an MLB leading 27th save last night, even if Pineiro pitches well, it’s no guarantee that the LA offense will be shut down for nine full innings.

Meanwhile, the Dodgers Derek Lowe has an extraordinarily sharp home/road dichotomy this year. In 12 starts at Dodgers Stadium, Lowe has a 2.72 ERA with opponents hitting just .211 against him. But when Lowe takes the mound away from pitcher-friendly LA, it’s a very different story: a 5.02 ERA, with opposing batters hitting .304 against him. Lowe has been roughed up in each of his last two road starts, at light hitting Arizona and San Francisco. The red hot Cardinals offense (59 runs scored in their last ten games, scoring six or more runs six times during that span) should be able to provide their fair share of offense here, sending this one Over the total. Take the Over.

Re: Wednesday Service Plays

Ben Burns

Atlanta Braves @ San Francisco Giants
PICK: San Francisco Giants

The Giants are a bit on the 'expensive' side to qualify as one of my guaranteed plays. However, if you've followed my complimentary selections, you'll have seen that we often do find "value" these larger-priced favorites, as was the case with Colorado yesterday. That being said, the matchup between Lincecum and James gives the home team a significant advantage.

Lincecum has developed into one of the best pitchers in the game. For the season, he has an 11-3 record to go along with a stellar 2.71 ERA. Note that the Giants are 2-0 in Lincecum's starts against the Braves, both of which came last season. San Francisco won those games by scores of 9-3 and 4-2.

The most recent of those games (the 9-3 one) came against today's starter, Chuck James. James gave up six runs in just 3 2/3 innings in that game, falling to 0-2 his last two starts against the Giants. James hasn't had any success at all this year, either. He lost his last start, which came at Atlanta, by a score of 9-0. He lasted just 2 2/3 innings in that game, again giving up six earned runs. He's been brutal on the road, too. Indeed, he's made three road starts and has gone 0-3 with an awful 11.38 ERA. His most recent road start was one of his better ones, as he 'only' gave up five runs in four innings.

Given the pitching mismatch, I considered releasing the Giants on the run-line here. However, they haven't been winning too many games in 'blowout fashion' recently. In fact, their last six victories have all come by two runs or less, two of those coming by a single run. Even four of Lincecum's last nine victories have come by a single run. Therefore, although a lopsided victory won't surprise me, I believe that laying the extra juice is more logical than playing at -1.5 runs. Despite yesterday's loss, the Giants are still a healthy 7-2 their last nine home games played in the month of August. They should be able to improve on those stats here. Consider San Francisco.

Re: Wednesday Service Plays

Bryan Leonard

Florida Marlins @ Philadelphia Phillies
PICK: Florida Marlins

Hitting edge in this one goes to the underdog Marlins who produce 5.34 runs per game on the road vs right-handed starters. The Phillies on the other hand don't hit as well here vs righties as lefties. They average 4.43 runs per game vs right-handed starts here as opposed to the whopping 6.71 runs per game they score vs lefties at home.

Anibal Sanchez is making his second start of the season after a long stay on the DL. When he was healthy in 2006 he posted a 2.83 ERA and 10-3 record in his rookie year. He all remember his no-hitter and that dominating performance. He pitched pretty well the first time out and all indications are that he is well on his way to helping the Marlins pressure the Phillies and Mets in the playoff race.
Kyle Kendrick was pounded by these Marlins in the middle of July as he gave up seven earned runs and 11 base runners in just 4.1 innings of work. He has been a serviceable pitcher for the Phillies but in no way is he a dominating force.

Florida is on a nice 11-4 run as underdogs including last nights 8-2 victory. They have cashed five of the last seven meetings in this series and they are a nice priced underdog tonight.

PLAY FLORIDA

Re: Wednesday Service Plays

Stephen Nover

San Diego Padres @ New York Mets
PICK: Over

The total is short here because the oddsmaker seems to perceive Pedro Martinez still is worthy of great respect and the Padres are a terrible hitting club.

But Martinez is just getting by on reputation these days and the Padres' offense often is undervalued on the road, which is the case here.

Martinez has a 6.16 ERA this season. He's been battling shoulder and groin injuries. The Padres racked him for four runs on 10 hits in five innings earlier this season at pitcher-friendly Petco Park.

The Mets' bullpen is a disaster area. Their middle relief is horrendous and now they don't have a legitimate closer with Billy Wagner on the DL. Martinez is a five-to-six innings pitcher these days. He hasn't reached the seventh inning during his past six starts.

The Padres are averaging 4.8 runs on the road since the All-Star break. The 'over' is 7-4-1 in San Diego's away games during this span.

San Diego starter Cha Seung Baek isn't very good either with a 5.22 ERA. Teams are starting to hit him as he faces them a second time. Since the All-Star break, Baek's three starts have all gone 'over' by an average of three runs.

Baek doesn't pitch deep into games. He hasn't reached the seventh inning in his last seven starts. The Padres' bullpen is mediocre at best.

Black Magic Sports

1 Unit on Minnesota Twins -130

Minnesota looks to avoid getting swept by the lowly Seattle Mariners Wednesday.  The Twins have lost back-to-back heartbreakers to Seattle, blowing a 6-0 lead in Game 1 and blowing a late 1-run lead in Game 2.  Minnesota will be playing determined and pissed off baseball tonight to get the win.  The also have young stud Nick Blackburn taking the ball, which is clearly in their favor.  Blackburn is 8-6 with a 3.56 ERA in 2008.  Seattle is 4-19 after 2 or more consecutive overs this season.  Mariners’ starter Jarrod Washburn is 3-15 in games played on a grass field this season.  Seattle is 3-14 after a game where their bullpen blew a save this season.  The Twins are a perfect 11-0 with an on base percentage of .390 or better over their last 3 games this season.  Cash in with Minnesota as the favorite.

2.5-Unit Play. Take #971 Minnesota (-130) over Seattle

Quite frankly, I will simply be stunned if the worst team in the American League sweeps one of the best. The Twins had late leads in each of the first two games, only to blow it. Well, the magic needs to wear off and reality needs to set in. I expect it today. I also believe that the Twins will show some urgency today and find a way to grind one out.


1.5-Unit Play. Take #977 Boston (-140) over Kansas City
Note: Please reduce to a 1-Unit Play.

Well, I'm betting against the Royals today which means they will come together with 15 hits and 9 runs in the first few innings. I told you: if I bet against the Royals every day they would win the division by 20 games. Royals jinx aside, we have to play against Luke Hochevar, who is getting lit. The rookie has given up 27 runs in his last 28 innings and has lost six of his last eight outings. Tim Wakefield has not been a strong road starter this year, but he's been a great favorite. He is 10-2 as a chalk in this range and is 42-20 as a favorite over the last several years. Kansas City was on a nice little run, but yesterday's loss likely took the wind out of their sails.


1.5-Unit Play. Take #966 Colorado (-1.5, -110) over Washington

Oliver Perez is exactly the type of arm that the Rockies light up in Coors. Colorado hits lefty pitching very well (No. 5 in the league) and Washington is just 3-7 in Perez's last 10 road starts. The Rockies are 12-3 in their last 15 at home and 8-1 at home against the Nats. They should get a boost from their returning ace, Jeff Francis, who by all accounts threw well in his rehab starts. The Nats don't hit lefties very well and are 15-40 against the N.L. West.


1-Unit Play. Take #970 Los Angeles Angels (-1.5, -110) over Baltimore
Looking four a bounceback performance from the Angels. The momentum from their incredible ride through Boston and New York finally came to a screeching halt last night. That said, I think they will come out today with a chip on their shoulder after being dominated by a journeyman call-up last night. The fact is they still hammer left-handed pitching and that Garrett Olsen isn't going to show them anything that they haven't seen. The ball flies out of that park during the day and I expect plenty of runs, which makes this runline play that much more valuable. Angels are still 10-4 at home against lefties and 20-7 in their last 27 against southpaws.

Today's Totals.
3-Unit Play. Take ‘Over’ 9.5 Washington at Colorado
2-Unit Play. Take ‘Over’ 8.5 Minnesota at Seattle
1.5-Unit Play. Take ‘Over’ 10.0 Houston at Chicago Cubs
1.5-Unit Play. Take 'Under' 8.5 San Diego at New York Mets

Game: Minnesota Twins at Seattle Mariners Aug 6 2008 4:40PM
Prediction: Under

The bats have come to life in the first two games of this series. Those games both came at night though and they featured Seattle's worst two pitchers. The series finale features a pair of quality starters, both of which have pitched well lately and both of which should enjoy some matchup advantages here. It also goes in the afternoon, which I believe will be significant. The Twins entered yesterday's game hitting .284 in their evening games, averaging a healthy 5.4 runs per game. Including last night's result, the 'over' is now a highly profitable 48-28-2 when then they've played at night. It's been a completely different story when they've played during the afternoon though. Indeed, in their 35 day games, they've hit .261 while averaging just 3.8 runs per game. Not surprisingly, it's been the UNDER which has primarily 'gotten the cash' in those games, going a profitable 22-12-1, which is just shy of 65%. The Mariners have also struggled to score runs in the afternoon. They entered last night's game averaging 4.3 runs per game in the evening. However, like the Twins, the Mariners enter this afternoon's game averaging just 3.8 runs per game when playing during the day. The UNDER has shown a modest profit, going 19-15-1 in their day games. Washburn gets the call for the home team and he's had plenty of success against the Twins over his career. In fact, his teams (Angels and Mariners) are 10-5 in his 15 career starts against Minnesota and he allowed four earned runs or less in 14 of those games. The last time that he faced them was August of last year (08/21/07) which means that the Minnesota hitters haven't seen him in quite some time. In that game, which came at Minnesota, he allowed just two runs through six complete innings. A week earlier, on 08/15, he faced them here at Seattle. Despite suffering a loss, he also pitched very well in that start, allowing only one earned run through seven complete innings. Including that result, which slipped below the total with a final score of 8.5, the UNDER is 9-3 the last 12 times that he faced the Twins and 10-5 for his career. Washburn struggled in his last start. However, we can cut him a bit of slack, as he had expected to be traded to the Yankees or another contender and therefore may not have been as focused as he normally might have been. Additionally, he had previously allowed two runs or less in eight of his past nine starts and four earned runs or less in all nine of them. During that nine-game stretch, he had an outstanding 2.44 ERA. Even with his last game finishing above the number, the UNDER is still a lucrative 9-2 his last 11 starts. Lastly, note that Washburn has been exceptional when pitching during the day this season. In four daytime appearances (3 starts) he has an excellent 2.14 ERA, holding opposing hitters to a mere .216 batting average. Blackburn gets the call for the Twins and he's coming off back to back stellar outings. Last time out, he allowed just six hits and one run though seven complete innings, en route to a 4-1 Minnesota victory. In his previous start, which was his most recent road start, he was even better. In that game, which finished with a final score of 4-2, he allowed a mere four hits through seven complete innings, again allowing only a single run. Like Washburn, he's been outstanding when pitching during the afternoon. In fact, in his seven daytime starts, he has an exceptional 1.80 ERA! Opposing hitters are batting .237 against him in the day but better than .300 when facing him under the lights. Lastly, it's important to note that he'll have the advantage of facing the Mariners hitters for the first time. Look for the bats to go quiet this afternoon, as this pitcher's duel falls below the number. *Getaway Day Total of the Month

Getaway Day Total of the Year!

Game: Atlanta Braves at San Francisco Giants Aug 6 2008 3:45PM
Prediction: Under

There is line value here because Chuck James shows the betting markets a 2-4 record with a 9.47 ERA. The fact is that James is much better than he’s shown this season and yet he did get roughed up in his first start after coming off the disabled list. However, this is not unusual as it often happens to pitchers in the first appearance at the MLB level after a long lay-off. James’ appearance on August 1st was his first start since May 15th and he did get roughed up and did not last long. However, like most pitchers, his second start is likely to go much smoother and note that facing the punch-less Giants should be a key to his success this afternoon! San Francisco is in an offensive funk as they have averaged a little less than 2.5 runs per game in their last dozen games! This is a two week stretch of offensive futility and it is likely to continue today! San Francisco has struggled against southpaws this season and they also have the worst home record in all of baseball so far this season! Of course the good news for Giants fans is that they will have Tim Lincecum on the mound this afternoon and that is why the play here is the under. The Giants right-hander has simply been phenomenal this season. He is 11-3 with a 2.71 ERA and opponents are hitting just .232 against Lincecum so far in his career. He will have an edge here too since the right-hander is facing a Braves lineup that has been weakened by trading away Mark Texeira and by losing Chipper Jones to injury. The Braves had a rare offensive explosion last night. Prior to Tuesday’s 11-run explosion, Atlanta had scored just three runs or less in six of their last eight games. With Lincecum on the mound, the Braves will quickly return to their offensive futility. Couple this with the Giants offensive ineptitude and you have the makings of a pitchers’ duel at AT & T Park on Wednesday afternoon! UNDER is the Getaway Day Total of the Year!
