Saturday Service Plays

Re: Saturday Service Plays

Alex Smart

Chicago White Sox -133

The Chicago White Sox(73-54) have been a potent opponent for much of their current campaign , getting the job done, with some top tier pitching and consistent offensive explosions. That was not the case yesterday however, when they lost a 9-4 decision to Tampa Bay in the first game of this weekend set here in US Cellular Field, for their fourth straight loss in the season series. The Pale Hose will be primed for a rebound effort against the ace of the Rays rotation Scott Kazmir (9-6, 3.21 ERA). The hard throwing southpaw has not been his usual self , in recent outings, with his key pitches rarely hitting the strike zone, which has resulted in some shortened outings, which has seen him fail to make it past the the 5th inning in four of his L/5 starts. During a current three game span, he has garnered a uncharacteristic 5.28 ERA. That could mean big trouble, against a White Sox team that is 45-19 on the season at home while averaging 6 RPG. Meanwhile, the ChiSox will return fire with Javier Vazquez(10-10, 4.34 ERA). The right hander is in top form , pitching into the 8th inning in two consecutive starts and subsequent wins, allowing just 1 ER during that span . Final notes & Key Trends: The White Sox have faired well against hard throwing hurlers at home like Kazmir this season , that strike out an average of 5 or more batters per appearance, notching a solid 8-1 mark against the monyeline . White Sox are 5-0 in their last 5 games following a loss. Look for the south siders to get the job done in this spot and post the W.

Ravens and Vikings Over 37

Both teams scored over 20 points last week on the road, and both teams will stress offense this week, especially Baltimore. Like this one to go over the number.

Re: Saturday Service Plays

Ben Burns

Arizona at Oakland OVER (play at 37 or better)

This total opened at 37 or 37.5 but most shops now have it at 36.5. I feel that number is too low for a pair of non-conference foes which combined for 43 points last week. Both teams are hoping for strong games from their young quarterbacks. Former number one pick JaMarcus Russell was fairly solid last week, going 10-of-17 for 75 yards and a touchdown. That was on the road against a tough Tennessee defense which allowed 18.6 points per game last season and less than 200 passing yards per game. I managed a winning ticket with that 'under' in that game (17-16 final) but expect Russell to enjoy more success this week. Not only is he now playing at home, but he'll also be facing an Arizona defense which allowed 24.9 points per game last season and which was below average in defending the pass. Note that Cardinals' safety Antrel Rolle is unlikely to play. While he isn't likely to see much action, it's still worth mentioning that backup QB Andrew Walter has been sharp and appears capable of leading the Oakland offense to some fourth quarter points. The Cardinals put up 27 points at KC last week. They've seen Matt Leinart convert more than 73% of his passes through the first two week, going 14-of-19. Meanwhile, Warner got the start last week and completed six of nine passes while leading the team on a touchdown drive. Naturally, a little quarterback competition is generally healthy when trying to cash a preseason over ticket. Even without receiver Anquan Boldin, Leinart and Warner aren't without weapons.

These teams also faced each other here last preseason. That game finished well above the number with a final score of 27-23, in favor of the Raiders. It was the second highest scoring game of what was otherwise a relatively low-scoring opening week. Don't be surprised if this one proves higher scoring than most are expecting once again. Consider the Over.

1 Unit on Marlins/D-backs OVER 9.5

Florida is 24-10 OVER as a road underdog of +125 to +175 this season and Arizona is 22-8 OVER as a home favorite of -125 to -175 this season.  The Marlins are also 29-14 OVER when playing on Saturday over the last 2 seasons, 36-21 OVER in all road games this season, and 25-11 OVER after batting .240 or worse over a 10 game span this season.  The Over is 7-1-1 in Diamondbacks last 9 vs. National League East and 23-7-1 in the last 31 meetings in Arizona between these two teams.  Take the OVER.

Atlanta Braves vs. St Louis Cardinals    

The Braves have thrown in the towel and are just out there collecting pay checks!!! The Cards have an outside chance of making the playoffs and showed last night they have the offensive power to do it. A bunch of games like last night and the Cards will be in the playoffs.

Pick : Cards -145

Re: Saturday Service Plays

Black Widow Sports

1* on Yankees/Orioles Under 11

Any game with Jeremy Guthrie starting should not have the total listed higher than 10 runs. Guthrie is 10-9 with a 3.15 ERA this year, and he’s 2-1 with a 1.71 ERA in his last 3 starts for Baltimore. Carl Pavano may be past his prime, but he still owns a career 3.14 ERA in four career starts against Baltimore. The UNDER is 4-0 in all four of those starts. The UNDER is 5-1 in six games between the Yankees and Orioles played at Camden Yards in Baltimore this season. Pavano is 9-0 UNDER on the road when the total is 10 or higher since 1997. Take the UNDER 11 runs today.

3* on Houston Astros +220

We’ll take a shot on Houston tonight against the New York Mets. Play Against - Home teams (NY METS) - with a starting pitcher whose WHIP is 1.250 to 1.350 on the season-NL against opponent with a starting pitcher whose WHIP is 1.550 to 1.650 on the season-NL. Surprisingly, this is a 48-29 ML System hitting 62.3% over the last 5 seasons. Brandon Backe owns a 4.43 career ERA against the Mets in four starts, so he’s had some success against them. Bet Houston.

John Martin

1 Unit on Boston Red Sox -142

Jon Lester is 17-5 vs. AL teams scoring 4.7 or less runs/game on the season over the last 2 seasons. Boston is 40-12 as a favorite of -125 to -175 this season. Lester is 17-3 in the second half of the season over the last 2 seasons. Lester is also 14-2 against AL East opponents over the last 2 seasons. This is a man on a mission in Jon Lester. He’s out to prove that he’s more than just a cancer survivor and that he’s one of the best starters in the league. He’s doing a damn good job of proving it, too at 12-4 with a 3.17 ERA this season. Cash in with Boston as the favorite.

Re: Saturday Service Plays

LARRY NESS

Oakland Athletics @ Seattle Mariners
PICK: Over

The A's (7-26) own MLB's worst record since the All-Star break, while the Mariners aren't far behind, going 10-23 during that same span. The A's beat the Mariners Thursday night 2-0 but the Mariners ended a seven-game losing streak with a 7-5 win last night in Seattle. The A's are hitting a ML-low .241 and are averaging 3.91 RPG. The Mariners hit better (.265 as a team) but aren't scoring all that much more (4.15 RPG). However, just like last night, I expect this game to go 'over' the total. Jarrod Washburn gets the start for Seattle and he's having another disappointing year. He enters with a 5-13 mark on the season (4.95 ERA), having lost four straight starts while posting a 7.36 ERA. He's allowed 28 hits and nine walks in just 22 innings over those starts and in 10 home starts this year, has a 5.50 ERA with the Mariners going 2-8. There is no reason to think the A's can't "get to him." Oakland will send Dana Eveland to the mound, who is returning to the majors after being demoted on August 3. Eveland, acquired in the Dan Haren trade with Arizona, got off to a very good start for Oakland in '08, allowing three ERs or less in 16 of his first 18 starts. However, in the four starts prior to him getting sent down to the minors, he had allowed 28 hits, 13 walks and 20 ERs over 17 innings for a 10.59 ERA. He had made it past the fifth inning in just ONE of those starts, getting one out in the 6th in that one. Yes he went 3-0 with a 2.57 ERA in three starts with Tacoma but I'm betting the Mariners will reach him for "more than a few" runs tonight. Take Oak/Sea Over.

Re: Saturday Service Plays

MATT FARGO

Kansas City Chiefs @ Miami Dolphins
PICK: Miami Dolphins

There is a lot of confidence in Miami right now. The Dolphins are coming off a win against Jacksonville this past weekend but it was more than just a win. It was the first victory for head coach Tony Sparano and if there is anything he wants to do, it is to keep the confidence building and to have the wins rolling into the regular season. Most impressive could be the fact that the victory over the Jaguars came on the road and now Sparano will be going after that first home win.

This is the third game of the preseason and this is the week that starters play more into the game while the coaches actually do some game planning. Miami looks good in this phase as its starters shut out the Jaguars, taking a 13-0 lead at halftime, and the reserves held on for that 19-14 victory. The offense was solid all around as Chad Pennington looked great in his debut, going 5-6 while rushing for 18 yards. Ricky Williams had a touchdown and a 4.3 ypc average while Ted Ginn Jr. had 58 yards receiving.

The Chiefs were not so fortunate this past weekend against the Cardinals as they lost by 10 points despite outgaining Arizona by 130 total yards. This is normally a possible take sign but there are some bad things that cannot be overlooked including mistakes that will be hard to turn around in just one week. The Chiefs didn’t score a touchdown Saturday until 15 seconds remained in the game and the offense and the defense both seem to be behind as this team is young and a lot still needs to be learned.

The Chiefs are a team that does not take winning too serious in the preseason and that is proven by their recent performances. Over the last four-plus exhibition seasons, they are 4-14 straight up including a 1-8 mark on the road. That 1-8 record is both straight up and against the number. The lone win was this season at Chicago but Kansas City was outgained there while allowing 175 yards rushing. We have the more confident and hungry team on Saturday and that results in a solid victory. Play Miami Dolphins 1.5 Units


San Diego Padres at San Francisco Giants
Prediction: San Francisco Giants

San Diego continues to drag along in a completely lost season as it is now 31 games under .500 and 20 games under .500 on the road which is third worst in baseball. The Padres offense was stymied again last night by a top quality pitcher and will face a resurgent Barry Zito tonight. San Diego is hitting .246 on the season which is 4th worst in all of baseball. It has scored the third fewest runs in the Majors and it is 12-28 in their last 39 games following a loss.

The Giants are playing better as they have been able to take care of the poor teams, winning six of their last seven games against a team with a winning percentage below .400. San Francisco has won three straight games at home which matches its longest winning streak at AT&T Park this season. Pitching has been solid of late as the Giants have allowed three runs or fewer in five of their last eight games. The offense has plated five runs or more during this stretch as well.

Zito is coming off a solid outing last time out against Atlanta as he allowed no runs in seven innings while giving up just five hits and walking just two in the victory. He has been very inconsistent at home but he gets to face a team that has no offense and that he has already taken care of once this season. Earlier this month in San Diego, he shut out the Padres in eight innings, allowing just three hits. The Giants are 5-0 in Zito?s last five starts against a team with a losing record.

The Padres counter with Dirk Hayhurst who was called up to make this start. He had a solid season in Portland with a 2.75 ERA but the problem is that 44 of his 46 games came out of the bullpen. His stamina will not be there and the goal is to get six innings out of him. That could be an issue for a bullpen that has a 4.89 ERA on the road this season. The Giants are 5-1 in their last six games against a right-handed starter and will add to it here. Play San Francisco Giants 1.5 Units

Tampa Bay Rays vs. Chicago White Sox
1 Unit on Tampa Bay Rays +128

The Rays are rolling and not even injuries or playing on the road is slowing them down. The Rays are 20-6 in their last 26 vs. a team with a winning record, 5-1 in their last 6 road games, 6-1 in their last 7 vs. the American League Central, and 6-0 in their last 6 road games vs. a right-handed starter. The Rays are also 8-0 in Kazmir's last 8 Saturday starts and 12-2 in Kazmir's last 14 starts during game 2 of a series. The Rays are 4-0 in the last 4 meetings against the Sox and I like them to keep rolling today.

Re: Saturday Service Plays

Steve Janus

Tampa Bay Rays vs. Chicago White Sox
Play: Tampa Bay Rays

You won't find the Rays as underdogs very often; even more, you will almost never find the Rays as underdogs when Scott Kazmir is starting. Kazmir is a great young talent that brings some major stability to the rotation. He puts up some great numbers, this is true, but he's also the leader of the rotation. Having him healthy and confident makes this Rays team that much better, it is one of the most important components that has gotten them this far. The Rays have won 5 of Kazmir's last 6 starts, including going 4-1 in games against teams with a winning record.

The White Sox are another team that's been hot as of late, but those numbers are a little bit deceiving. You have to consider that, even though they've won 8 of their last 10 overall, they've only won 1 of their last 5 against teams with a winning record. Also consider that the Rays own the series between the two this year at 5-3, and the Sox have struggled all season against teams from the AL East. Chicago has lost 10 of their last 13 against the Rays' division, plus they are just 1-4 when Saturday's starter, Javier Vazquez, pitches against that same division.

What this all adds up to is an easy decision to take the underdog Tampa Bay Rays today. As far as I can see, the only reason that the Chicago White Sox are favored is because they are only a half game out of first in the AL Central, so they do have some motivation, but I think the Rays' motivation to stave off the Boston Red Sox is just as strong.
