Re: Thursday Service Plays

Bob Harvey

Kansas City Royals vs. Cleveland Indians
Play: Cleveland Indians -1½

There has been no player more valuable to his team than the Indians Cliff Lee. Cleveland has won 58 games this season and Lee has accounted for almost 30% of them with his 17 victories. This afternoon he looks for his seventh straight win as the Indians go for a three-game sweep of the Royals.

In addition to his 17-2 record he has an ERA of 2.43. Lee is the AL leader in wins, winning percentage, ERA and has allowed two or fewer runs in 18 of his 24 starts. He’s 6-0 with a 2.42 ERA in his last seven starts, and is coming off his third complete game, a victory over the Angels last week.

Lee’s only shutout of the year came against the Royals in April. The lefty also beat Kansas City in May to improve to 9-4 lifetime vs. KC. He’s also unbeaten at home going 7-0 at Progressive Field this season with a 2.38 ERA in ten starts.

The Indians are going for their first home sweep of an opponent since winning four straight against Tampa Bay immediately before the All-Star break. Since the beginning of that series, Cleveland is 21-14 overall.

As has happened in years gone by, Kansas City is struggling in the second half of the season and headed perhaps to another last place finish. The Royals have dropped four straight and 11 of 13 falling behind the Indians into the basement of the AL central where they’ve resided the past four seasons.

Zach Greinke will toe the rubber looking to turn things around for the Royals but he’s just 2-4 in his last nine starts having allowed at least five runs in four of those five outings. He’s also just 3-6 lifetime vs. the Tribe.

Steve Janus

New York Yankees vs. Toronto Blue Jays
Play: New York Yankees +160

Taking the Yankees here in a big underdog situation. New York can be overrated, but if they can get their bats going at all against Halladay they will have a great chance to pull off a big upset.

Brian Marshall

Colorado Rockies vs. Los Angeles Dodgers
Plays: Colorado/Los Angeles Over 9

Do you love high-scoring games? If yes, you will love Thursday's MLB contest between the Colorado Rockies and Los Angeles Dodgers.

The Colorado Rockies will be lead by starting pitcher Jorge De La Rosa. Jorge De La Rosa has been having huge pitching problems as of late. In fact, Jorge De La Rosa has a 7.36 ERA in his last 3 starts. We see Jorge De La Rosa giving up many runs once again today.

The Los Angeles Dodgers will be lead by starting pitcher Derek Lowe. Derek Lowe has also been having huge pitching problems as of late. In fact, Derek Lowe has a 6.48 ERA in his last 3 starts. We see Derek Lowe also giving up many runs today.

These teams have a history of playing high-scoring games when they meet. In fact, the Over is 13-7 in the last 20 meetings between these teams.

The bottom line, we should see many runs scored tonight!

Take the Colorado Rockies/Los Angeles Dodgers Over 9

Re: Thursday Service Plays

Tony Mathews

Atlanta Braves vs. New York Mets
Selection: New York Mets -1.5 Runs

The Atlanta Braves will use starting pitcher Mike Hampton. Mike Hampton has struggled this entire season. In fact, Mike Hampton has a 6.92 ERA on the season. We see Mike Hampton pitching another bad game today.

The New York Mets will use starting pitcher Pedro Martinez. Pedro Martinez has been pitching very well as of late. In fact, Pedro Martinez has a 1.86 ERA in his last 3 starts. We see Pedro Martinez pitching another great game today.

The New York Mets are a perfect 4-0 in their last 4 meetings against the Atlanta Braves (when playing in New York), and should be able to get another blowout win tonight!

Take the New York Mets -1.5 Runs

49ers / Bears Over

These teams have played each other the last 2 years in preseason games. The combined scores averaged 50.5 PPG. The OVER seems like an easy play.

Re: Thursday Service Plays

Dennis Macklin

Oakland Athletics at Seattle Mariners

The A's lack of offense (35 games of one run or less) is well documented. Oaktown's starting pitcher Greg Smith might be 5-12 but only for lack of run support as his ERA is 3.91 for the year and 2.83 in L3. The under is 19-3 in his 22 starts, 12-1 to the low on the road. The Mariners are 10-1 to the over in L11 but mainly due to the fact that opponents are hitting a whopping .346 in L7. The all pitch and no hit A's dictate here and force this game under the total.

Play on: Under

VEGAS EXPERTS

New York Yankees at Toronto Blue Jays

We look for the Blue Jays to take their series with the Yankees tonight as they send ace Roy Halladay to the bump. As the year moves along, Halladay is only getting stronger as is evident by a 1.14 ERA his last three starts. Also, the last time he faced the Bronx Bombers, he went the full nine innings, allowing just two hits and zero runs. With the way NY has played lately, they don't stand any better of a chance this go around.

Play on: Toronto

Re: Thursday Service Plays

TONY WESTON

Last night the Angels salvaged their road trip and their series in Tampa with a 5-4 comeback win over the Rays. However, even with that win Anaheim is still only 2-5 its last seven games.

The Twins, on the other hand, are 12-6 their last 18 games and are 6-1 their last seven, including wins in each of their last two where they?ve outscored their opponents by a combined 16-3.

Also, on the road lately they've been pretty solid as they've gone 5-3 away from the Baggie Dome.

The Twins will continue their hot ways and get over on an Angels team that has to fly cross country after getting beat down for the majority of their road trip.

Take Minnesota on the road.

3♦ TWINS

Re: Thursday Service Plays

The Gold Medal Club

San Francisco @ Chicago Bears
PLAY UNDER

Bears still undecided about starting quarterback, Grossman or Orton, so look for both of them to get the lions share of playing time tonight.Grossman did not handle the blitzing scheme by the Seahawks in the last game very well, so expect San Francisco to throw the same package at him.
16 points out of Chicago's 26 were scored by an interception, a safety, and a kickoff return. So the offense of the Bears scored 10 points by themselves. We note Bears 1-5 HF's last 6

For San Francisco, O"Sullivan is scheduled to play the 1st half followed by Alex Smith, and Shaun Hill.
O"Sullivan struggled against the 1st team defense of Green Bay, who only played a quarter. The Bears starters will be playing longer.

I see this game being played between the 40 yard lines,dictated by defense and special teams as neither team posses the offense weapons to put this number over.

Re: Thursday Service Plays

SCOTT DELANEY

We lay the Cubbies on the Run Line in this matinee clash with the Reds, and be sure we're getting Carlos Zambrano against Aaron Harang in this NL Central rivalry meeting.

Harang has been the biggest disappointment this season, and it won't stop anytime soon, as I suspect the division leaders will bring the bats today, while the Big Z will be on top of his game to stifle this stagnant lineup.

I've said this before and will say it again, Cincy conceded its heart and dedication to 2008 when it let Griff and Dunn go. The Reds are now no match for the hard-hitting Cubbies.

Lay the run line in this ridiculously high-priced contest.

Re: Thursday Service Plays

WUNDERDOG

Florida at San Francisco
Pick: Florida -196

Josh Johnson has really given the Marlins’ staff a lift, as witnessed by his 3-0 record and 3.38 ERA. Even better, is that the Marlins have been victorious in six of his seven starts. It won't be easy for the Giants either, as Johnson has made two starts in his career against the Giants, and has pitched to a 1.93 ERA. That puts a lot of pressure on Matt Palmer who was horrible in his debut giving up six runs and lasting just 2.1 innings. Palmer was completely unnerved, as he walked four and hit a batter, coming away from the game with a lofty 23.14 ERA. The Marlins need this one to stay in the race, and the right ingredients are in place to get the win and the series win.

Chris James Sports

Play Los Angeles Angels

Scott Baker is 0-4 when starting against the Angels with a 7.36 ERA and a WHIP of 1.831. Compare that to Lackey who has an ERA of 3.81 vs. the Twins with a WHIP of 1.225!  The Angels have already taken 3 of 4 from the Twins this year and are 7-2 against the Twins at home in their last 9 games! Look for the Angels to add to that total tonight!

1 Unit on Nationals/Phillies UNDER 9

Redding is 15-2 UNDER vs. an NL team with a batting average of .255 or worse in the second half of the season since 1997, 20-4 UNDER vs. an NL team with an on base percentage .325 or worse in the second half of the season since 1997, and 14-2 UNDER in August games since 1997.  Moyer is 24-6 UNDER vs. NL teams scoring 4.3 or less runs/game on the season since 1997 and Philly is 22-7 UNDER after batting .225 or worse over a 5 game span this season.  Take the UNDER tonight.
