STEPHEN NOVER

Houston Astros @ New York Mets
PICK: Houston Astros

Oliver Perez has been pitching well for the Mets lately. But he is one of the most unpredictable starters in baseball. He's capable of throwing a no-hitter or getting shelled in the first inning.

Perez never should be laying this high of a price, so I'm on the underdog Astros and Randy Wolf.

Yes, Wolf is highly vulnerable now that he's permanently away from Petco Park. But one thing you can say about the lefty is he has a strong history against the Mets. Wolf is 11-5 with a 3.25 ERA career-wise versus the Mets. This includes a 2-0 mark this year with a 0.75 ERA.

Perez has allowed 11 walks during his last three starts. The southpaw has thrown 338 pitches in his past three outings. The Astros have a winning mark this season against left-handers.

The Mets have one of the worst bullpens, lacking a closer with Billy Wagner on the DL.

At this price, the Astros are worth a shot. The underachieving Mets lost to Brandon Backe on Saturday. So they certainly are capable of losing to Wolf today.

Selection: Boston Red Sox -140

Today the Boston Red Sox will be on the road as they take on the Toronto Blue Jays. We will side with the Boston Red Sox! One reason why we will side with the Boston Red Sox is because they will be sending to the mound the much better starting pitcher. This says it all... The Boston Red Sox Starting Pitcher (Daisuke Matsuzaka) has a 1.35 ERA in his last 3 starts, while Toronto Blue Jays Starting Pitcher (A.J. Burnett) has a 4.05 ERA in his last 3 starts. As you can see, the Boston Red Sox will be sending to the mound the much better starting pitcher. To say the least, the Boston Red Sox should be able to beat the Toronto Blue Jays today. Take the Boston Red Sox!

Re: Sunday Service Plays

Karl Garrett

Boston at TORONTO

I like the pitchers to dominate at the Rogers Centre today, as Dice K Matsuzaka, and AJ Burnett mow them down once again.

Matsuzaka has only allowed 3 earned run over his last 20 innings of work, and for the season he is a perfect 7-0 on the road with an ERA just over 2!

AJ Burnett is fresh off an 8 inning, 1 run stint at home in a win over the Yankees. Burnett is now 10-2 at home this year, and while his season ERA is over 4, Burnett has dominated the Red Sox of late, going 4-0 his last 4 starts against them, while allowing just 5 runs in 33 innings of work.

These teams have been on protracted OVER runs of late, Boston 5-0-1 OVER their last 6, while Toronto has played OVER in their last 3.

Not today!

Take the UNDER, as this one is a pitcher's duel.

4♦ UNDER

NY Yankees -125 at BALTIMORE 

Today on the diamond we back the Yankees to complete the Camden Yards sweep. New York knows they don't have much wiggle room, and they have done a good job this weekend taking the first 2 games of this 3 game set, picking up a game in the standings after Boston's loss last night.

The Yanks have won 5 of their last 7, while the Orioles have lost 5 of their last 7.

Darrell Rasner has pitched well his last 2 starts, allowing only 3 runs over his last 12 innings of work, while his couterpart Daniel Cabrera is fresh off a puzzling 4 inning, 6 run loss to Boston.

Cabrera is 3-0 against the Yankees this season, so you can expect the Yanks to be itching to hand this guy the loss.

Look for the New York bats which have plated 14 runs in capturing the first 2 games of this weekend set to keep on raking, and for the Yankees to complete the sweep.

Play on New York.

Re: Sunday Service Plays

Drew Gordon

NY Yankees at BALTIMORE +110 

Good spot for the Orioles, who not only get a shot at the very average Darrell Rasner, but also counter with Daniel Cabrera on the mound this afternoon... The same Cabrera who's 3-0 with a 3.15 ERA in 20 innings (3 starts) against New York this season!

That's right, we're getting Cabrera, who's brought his "A" game every time he's faced the Yankees this season, at plus money! I know the Yankees are doing better of late, but that's still doesn't justify the number on this contest, not when the O's are still crushing the ball, batting .312 as a team over their last 10 games!

Not only that, but just because Rasner had one good start, doesn't mean he's going to reproduce that effort this afternoon. Sure, allowing 1 run over 6 2/3 inning at Toronto was solid, but what about the fact he's 2-9 with 5.65 ERA in his last 15 outings! Or what about the fact the Yankees are just 1-7 in his last 8 road starts!

True, Rasner has pitched well against the Orioles this season, but again, Baltimore is swinging the bats extremely well of late, batting a blistering .319 against righties over their last 10! The Orioles have hit righties well at Camden Yards all season, averaging a solid 5.3 runs per game and batting .278 against them on the season at home!

Bottom line, not only are the Yankees an average road team, but they're well below average when Rasner gets the start in hostile territory (New York is just 1-7 in his L8 road starts). Couple that with Cabrera's success against them this season, and some hot-hitting from Markakis and company, and you've got the perfect recipe for some easy plus money Sunday afternoon!

Take Baltimore behind Cabrera over the NY Yankees and Rasner in afternoon MLB action.

Bobby Maxwell

Florida +115 at ARIZONA 

The Marlins need to get back on the winning track if they are going to remain in contention in the N.L. East standings. Their recent struggles have left them looking up at the Phillies and Mets. But tonight we like the pitching matchup and one of our favorites this season is on the hill in Marlins' youngster Ricky Nolasco (12-7, 3.67 ERA).

Even though he's 1-2 in his last three starts, Nolasco's ERA is 2.08 and this kid can flat out pitch. And if he gets it rolling through the first four innings, he gets stronger as the game goes on. He's 7-3 on the road and the Marlins are 10-4 when he's taken the mound on the highway. He just crushed the Giants in San Francisco on Tuesday when he threw a two-hit complete game shutout in the 6-0 Florida victory.

And in two starts against the D'Backs this season he has been brilliant, allowing two runs on nine hits in 15 innings of work in identical 3-1 Florida victories.

On the opposite side, the Marlins have Doug Davis (5-7, 4.68) on the mound and Arizona has lost seven of his last nine outings with the only two wins coming against the hapless Padres. Take out the two starts vs. San Diego and this guy has allowed 31 runs over seven starts.

Let's go with the young gun today as the Marlins continue their dominance over the D'Backs.

Matt Fargo

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

I see no reason to get off this one. San Diego has now dropped six straight games and it is now 32 games under .500 and 21 games under .500 on the road. The Padres offense was stymied again last night and that came against Barry Zito who has had his share of struggles this season. 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 12-29 in their last 41 games following a loss.

The Giants are playing better as they have been able to take care of the poor teams, winning seven of their last eight games against a team with a winning percentage below .400. San Francisco has now won four straight games at home which is now the 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 six of their last nine games while posting a solid 3.48 ERA over their last 10 games.

Kevin Correia had a great run in the beginning of the season but then the wheels fell off with a horrible July. He has since gained back some of that early season form in August. In four starts he has a 3.42 ERA which includes three quality outings. He has not been able to pick up a win during this stretch but has pitched well enough to be at least 3-1. He is struggling with getting wins but a lot of that has to do with no offense behind him and that will change tonight.

Josh Banks has been dreadful of late, posting a 10.80 ERA over his last three starts and he has just two quality outings over his last 10 starts. Even worse has been his control. He has walked 13 batters over his last two outings and that has pushed his WHIP to 1.46 on the season. Two of his best starts this season have come against the Giants but with this being the third time the San Francisco offense has seen him, adjustments will be made. The Padres are 2-6 in his last eight road starts. Play San Francisco Giants 1.5 Units

Re: Sunday Service Plays

Tony Mathews

Pittsburgh Pirates vs. Milwaukee Brewers
Selection: Pittsburgh/Milwaukee Under 7.5

The Pittsburgh Pirates will use starting pitcher Paul Maholm. Paul Maholm has been pitchuing great as of late. In fact, Paul Maholm has a 1.64 ERA in his last 3 starts. We see Paul Maholm pitching another great game today.

The Milwaukee Brewers will use starting pitcher CC Sabathia. CC Sabathia has also been pitching great as of late. In fact, CC Sabathia has a 1.08 ERA in his last 3 starts. We see CC Sabathia also pitching another great game today.

The bottom line, we should see a low-scoring game today!

Take the Pittsburgh Pirates/Milwaukee Brewers Under 7.5

Brian Marshall

Atlanta Braves vs. St. Louis Cardinals
Plays On: St. Louis Cardinals -1.5

The Atlanta Braves will be lead by starting pitcher Jo-Jo Reyes. Jo-Jo Reyes has been struggling as of late. In fact, Jo-Jo Reyes has a 7.30 ERA in his last 3 starts. We see Jo-Jo Reyes giving up many runs once again today.

The St. Louis Cardinals will use starting pitcher Braden Looper. Braden Looper has been pitching great as of late. In fact, Braden Looper has a 1.71 ERA in his last 3 starts. We see Braden Looper giving up very few hits and runs today.

The St. Louis Cardinals are 6-2 in their last 8 meetings against the Atlanta Braves, and should be able to get another blowout win today!

Take the St. Louis Cardinals -1.5 Runs

Re: Sunday Service Plays

JEFF BENTON

Philadelphia has torched Los Angeles in the first two games of this weekend set, winning 8-1 on Friday and 9-2 yesterday. And even though I’m hardly a Joe Blanton fan, I still think the Phillies find a way to get the sweep tonight – and get a little payback against the Dodgers, who took four games from the Phils in L.A. less than two weeks ago.

One of the reasons to like the home team is the fact they’re getting their second look at Dodgers right-hander Hiroki Kuroda, who absolutely dominated the Phillies on May 14 in a 3-1 victory. You gotta figure that now that they have a book on Kuroda – and they’re playing at home – that the Phillies will be much more successful against the Japanese right-hander this time around. They also figure to be successful because Kuroda stinks on the road – he’s 2-7 with a 4.75 ERA, compared with 5-2 with a 3.32 ERA at home.

What’s more Kuroda has been dreadful in day games, going 0-4 with a 5.08 ERA in six starts, five of which Los Angeles has lost.

Philadelphia comes into this one having won five of its last seven overall and four straight at home. Plus, the team is 18-8 the last 26 times it has faced the Dodgers in Philadelphia. Lay the small price and ride the Phillies to the sweep!

Re: Sunday Service Plays

MATT RIVERS

For Sunday take the Pirates plus the huge number.

Am I banging my head against the wall right here by going against the insane and unreal CC Sabathia? Quite possibly. The lefty has been as good as almost any pitcher in the history of the game over the past nine or so starts but Paul Maholm is a quality lefty as well who has been pretty solid over the last few months and to get such a hefty price back is too good to totally say no to.

The Pirates are obviously a banged up team going nowhere who just traded away their better players but they are still a professional organization with a quality hurler goinmg to the mound. Plus closer Matt Capps is back from the DL which can't hurt.

We will need Maholm to be totally on his game and give us seven or eight great innings as we can expect nothing less from Sabathia but at this price it's a no lose situation because if we do lose we should have lost.

I'm hoping that we can get Sabathia to throw a lot of pitches as Ned Yost cannot keep him in the game for another 130 pitch performance like last start, he just can't. In the end hopefully we'll see a low scoring 2-1 type of a game in the 8th where we have a chance against possibly the mediocre Milwaukee bullpen.

JAKE TIMLIN

Milwaukee Brewers -1 1/2

Take the Brewers as they earn the home sweep over the Pirates with yet another blowout win. After all given the fact the Milwaukee has won the last 11 series games at home against the Pirates and 6 of the 7 overall meeting this season it’s clear that the Brewers own Pittsburgh. Especially at home this year with all 5 wins coming by 2 or more runs. Well thanks to Sabathia who has been hittable since joining the Brewers rotation I expect for Milwaukee to continue their dominance today as they easy work of Pittsburgh.

All Milwaukee -1 ½ Runs!

TONY WESTON

We’re going after four of five tonight and we’re going to nail it as we’re taking a surprise home dog as we’re taking the Blue Jays at home over the Red Sox.

After losing Game 1 of this series on Friday 8-4, the Jays bounced back in tremendous fashion last night destroying the Sox 11-0. With that win Toronto is now 4-1 against the Sox their last five meetings and is 7-3 in 10 meetings this season.

And it’s not like this is something new. Going back to last season the Blue Jays are 13-6 against the Sox and are 11-3 their last 14 meetings.

Also consider that Toronto’s scheduled starting pitcher, A.J. Burnett, comes into this game on a six-game winning streak and is 8-0 his last eight starts at home. In his last two starts against the Sox he’s 2-0 and has given up only three earned runs and struck out 16 in 16 1/3 innings of work.

Pencil in Burnett as your starting pitcher and go with Toronto at home.
