1* on Cleveland Indians -136

Cliff Lee has been superb all season with a 16-2 record and 2.45 ERA to show for it.  Lee has yet to lose at home, going 6-0 with a 2.43 ERA when pitching in Cleveland.  Lee has had great success against Anaheim, going 4-3 with a 3.56 ERA against the Angels in his career.  Cleveland is playing much better baseball as of late by winning 5 of their last 7 ball games overall.  Lee is 11-1 (+10.3 Units) against the money line when the total is 8 to 8.5 this season.  Cleveland is 16-3 (+12.9 Units) against the money line after a game with a combined score of 17 runs or more over the last 2 seasons.  Take the Indians on the Money Line.

Oddsmaker's Error-MLB (11-5 in MLB since June 17)

How much have the Red Sox missed Manny? It seems the obvious answer is, not very much! Manny was sent to LA on July 31 but the Red Sox are 10-3 in August, averaging a robust 7.23 RPG (had averaged 4.94 RPG prior to that). The Red Sox enter this game 71-51 overall and with a 43-16 mark here in Fenway, where they've outscored the opposition by an average of 5.95-to-4.00 RPG. Despite typically high prices to overcome here at home, the team is plus-$1,882 vs moneyline, second in all of MLB to only the ever-surprising Tampa Bay Rays. Meanwhile, the Blue Jays come to Boston for a three-game set with a 28-34 record on the road, getting outscore 4.23-to-4.27 RPG. INCREDIBLY, Toronto opened the favorite in this game, although by late-morning on Friday, the Red Sox are now the small favorite (you think?). Now no one puts any more emphasis on starting pitchers than I do but the linemakers really gave too much credit to Roy Halladay and not nearly enough credit to Paul Byrd, while totally IGNORING Boston's home dominance. Halladay is a terrific pitcher but let's look at his '08 record. He's 13-9 with a 2.76 ERA, with the Blue Jays going a very mediocre 13-11 in his starts. Regulars know I love to compare how teams do with that game's starting pitcher on the mound against how they do when he's not on the mound. Doing the math finds the Blue Jays are hardly any better with Halladay on the hill, as they are 13-11 (.542) with him and 49-49 (.500) without him. That's clearly "no big deal!" He's never had much success vs Boston, posting a 10-11 (4.66 ERA) lifetime mark in 31 starts (Jays are 13-18) against the Red Sox. These last two years, he's made seven starts vs Boston (two TY and five in '07), going 2-4 with a 4.86 ERA (team is 2-5). As for Paul Byrd, he was coming off a superb 2007 season in which he went 15-8 but he a had a terrible first half for the Indians (3-10). However, how can one ignore his 4-0 mark since the break, where he's allowed just four ERs over 29 innings (1.24 ERA)? His most recent start for the Indians (before his fortunate trade to Boston) came against these Blue Jays in Toronto and he was matched up against Halladay. Pitching for a Cleveland team which is just 23-38 on the road as we speak, Byrd out-dueled Halladay in a 4-2 win. So here, pitching in front of a Boston team which is not only 43-16 at home but 32-12 in Fenway vs right-handed starters (averaging 5.9 RPG), why SHOULDN'T he best Toronto and Halladay again? And why SHOULDN'T the price on him be steeper? It should be and that's why my Oddsmaker's Error is on the Bos Red Sox.

Arizona Diamondbacks at Houston Astros

The Houston Astros are on a roll, winning their last eight games. But will have a big task tonight when they host the Diamondbacks and their ace Brandon Webb. Arizona has beaten Houston in six of the last seven meetings and have won Webb's last 4 starts versus the Astros. The right-hander is 4-1 with a 1.75 ERA in seven career starts against the Astros. Houston counters with Wandy Rodriguez. The left-hander is 2-2 with a 4.50 ERA in four career outings against the Diamondbacks. Houston has dropped five of Rodriguez's last 7 starts at home. Go with the Diamondbacks!

Arizona Diamondbacks -145

NFL Preseason Football
Titans/Raiders Under 35
Both teams have great opening preseason weeks. Both teams really ran the football well. Oakland who was last in the league last year against the run will get a stiff test today against a good Titans run game. The Raiders usually have a good pass defense which will allow them to focus on stopping the run which is an area they need to improve in. When it comes to the Raiders offense well lets be honest it just stinks. Even when Oakland does put together a good drive someone gets a personal foul to take them out of it. Both teams will run the ball a lot tonight chewing up the clock. As a side not the Titans kicker will not play tonight. Nothing better than a 8 minute drive with a missed FG by a backup to help your total play. Let's take the Under.

Toronto/Boston Under 8.5 (POD)

Toronto is on the road at Boston now, they lost 1-5 yesterday to Detroit, Halladay had an odd start last time, he had a 1.35 era against Cleveland at home, I actually went against him and picked up the +230 dog price with Byrd, he gave up 10 hits, but lost just 2-4, he looks to bounce-back today and he likely will do so, he had a 1.04 era against Boston last game as he faced Lester and lost 0-1, he looks to rebound from that to, he faces Byrd who the Red Sox have seem improve a great deal the last couple of games as he is 4-0 of late with eras of 1.60, 0, 1.29 and 2, and he won several games on the road including the Angels, Yankees and the Twins, which is tough to do and shutout Detroit at home, so of course, Boston was interested, if anything a lean on the under here as Byrd shows up in his first game for the fans at Fenway and Halladay looks to avenge his last loss and the last 0-1 loss to Lester, likely a 2-4 ballgame of sorts. Under is 6-2-1 in the last 9 meetings between these 2 teams meaning the pitching shows up, Toronto's hitting has been questionable all year, Halladay is 8-2-1 to the under on grass, Halladay on a bounce-back and revenge against Boston earlier this year and Byrd wants to make a good showing for the fans at Fenway and has been pitching well, thus, good spot for the under.
