Pittsburgh Pirates +1.5

Reason: Put us down on the Pittsburgh Pirates +1.5 Runs (+105) for our Free MLB Selection on Monday. Today the Chicago Cubs will be on the road as they take on the Pittsburgh Pirates. We will side with the Pittsburgh Pirates +1.5 Runs! One reason why we will side with the Pittsburgh Pirates is because they will be sending to the mound the starting pitcher who has been pitching better. This says it all... The Chicago Cubs Starting Pitcher (Ted Lilly) has a 4.25 ERA on the season, while Pittsburgh Pirates Starting Pitcher (Jeff Karstens) has a 2.25 ERA on the season. As you can see, the Pittsburgh Pirates will have the better starting pitcher on the mound. In this case, the value is with the Pittsburgh Pirates +1.5 Runs. Take the Pittsburgh Pirates +1.5 Runs!

Minnesota Twins vs. Seattle Mariners
Selection: Minnesota Twins -1.5

The Minnesota Twins will use starting pitcher Francisco Liriano. Francisco Liriano has been pitching great as of late. In fact, Francisco Liriano has a 1.53 ERA in his last 3 starts. We see Francisco Liriano pitching another great game today.

The Seattle Mariners will use starting pitcher Miguel Batista. Miguel Batista has struggled this entire season. In fact, Miguel Batista has a 6.55 ERA on the season. We see Miguel Batista pitching another bad game today.

The Minnesota Twins are a Perfect 4-0 in their last 4 meetings against the Seattle Mariners, and should be able to get another blowout win today!

Take the Minnesota Twins -1.5

Ted Lilly comes into this one after having his no-hitter broken up in the sixth inning of his last start. He certainly pitched well enough to win, yet even though he gave up a mere two hits in seven innings and struck out seven, he wound up losing a 2-1 decision to the Reds.

The outing lowered his ERA to 4.25, and since the lefty dominated the Pirates on Aug. 2 - holding them to one run and six hits in 6-1/3 innings for the win – I am looking for a huge performance in this one. Chicago is on winning runs of 5-2 with Lilly on the road, 5-1 overall in his last six starts and 13-4 against the NL Central. Let’s lay the run line in this one as Chicago goes into Steeltown and steamrolls the Bucs with ease.

So close, yet so far away. The Blue Jays play their asses off, but can’t pull through when we need it most.

Well, we’re moving past that and heading to Missouri where the Royals host the Rangers in a tilt that Texas will be victorious in.

Both teams have been atrocious lately with the Royals going 3-14 their last 17 games and going 1-7 their last eight games. Also, at home things haven’t been much better for Kansas City, who is 2-6 its last eight in front of the home crowd.

But the Rangers hold the edge against the Royals in what they’ve done to them this year. In six games against each other this season the Rangers are 4-2 and going back to last year Texas is 8-4 against Kansas City

The Rangers took two of three in a series in Kansas City back in June. Texas will make it three of four in K.C. with a strong win tonight.

Go with the Rangers on the road.

Re: Monday Service Plays

Matt Fargo

Chicago White Sox at Baltimore Orioles
Prediction: Chicago White Sox

This is a very solid price for a White Sox team that is battling for the playoffs. After Sunday?s win coupled with Minnesota?s loss in Anaheim, the White Sox are back in first place by a half-game over Minnesota. With a series at Boston on deck next weekend, this three-game set with the Orioles becomes even more important. Chicago has won six of its last eight games and it has been winning with a combination of solid pitching and hitting. It has averaged 7.6 rpg on offense while allowing just 3.6 rpg from the mound.

The Orioles were swept at home over the weekend by the Yankees and it is now just 1-5 on its current homestand. Pitching continues to letdown the Orioles as they have a 6.07 ERA over their last 10 games including a 7.69 ERA coming from the starters. They have allowed an average of 7.0 rpg over their last 14 games including an average of 8.0 rpg in the seven games played at home. The 4.91 season ERA is 2nd worst in the American League and 3rd worst in all of baseball.

Chris Richard was given a second chance in the rotation and it looks as though he may want to hold onto it. After posting a 10.38 ERA through his first three starts this season, he came back with a solid performance last time out. He held the Mariners to just five hits and a walk while not giving up a run through six innings in earning his first career Major League win. He now faces an Orioles team that is 6-18 in its last 24 home games against a left-handed starter.

Baltimore sends Chris Waters to the hill and it has been a struggle of late. Waters started his Major League career in spectacular fashion as he held the Angles to just one hit in eight innings as he picked up the victory. Since then however, he has not even been close to that same form as he has posted a 7.90 over his last three starts, none of which were even close to a quality outing. He will see the opposite of Richard as the White Sox are 12-4 in their last 16 games against a left-handed starter.

Los Angeles Dodgers at Philadelphia Phillies

The Dodgers have struggle away from home, dropping their last five road games, six of their last eight. Also, they have lost six of Billingsley's last 8 road starts. Go with the Phillies at home for a four-game sweep of the Dodgers. Philadelphia is 7-1 in their last 8 games at Citizens Bank Park and have won seven of Brett Myers last 8 starts versus the Dodgers.

Philadelphia Phillies -120


Mr. A

Minnesota Twins (74-56) at Seattle Mariners (48-82)

Minnesota has won eight of their last 11 games and has beaten Seattle in four of the last five meetings. Meanwhile, the struggling Mariners have lost eight of their last 10 games, five of its last 7 at home.

Minnesota's Francisco Liriano (4-3, 4.24 ERA), is 3-0 with a 1.53 ERA in his last three starts. The lefthander is 2-1 with a 1.50 ERA in three career starts against Seattle.

Seattle's Miguel Batista (4-12, 6.55), is 0-0 with a 6.28 ERA in his last three starts. The right-hander is 2-1 with a 5.86 ERA in nine career outings, including five starts against Minnesota.

Minnesota has won seven of the last 10 games in Seattle and southpaw Francisco Liriano is currently pitching great, while Seattle’s Miguel Batista struggles. Take the Twins to grab their fifth straight victory over the Mariners.

Colorado at SAN FRANCISCO

Tonight we play the UNDER in the Colorado-San Francisco contest, as Jeff Francis, and Matt Cain have been throwing the ball well of late.

Francis comes into this one off a 6 inning, 1 run, no decision at Los Angeles. Francis has been tough on the Giants, going 3-0 the last 3 times he has faced them, allowing just 5 runs his last 23 innings of work against them.

Matt Cain counters, and all the righty has done is allow 3 runs over his last 15 innings ot work for a 1-0 mark. Cain also worked 5 scoreless innings against Colorado in April for the win.

These teams have met 3 times this year in the City by the Bay, and ALL 3 meetings have stayed LOW.

We are playing the UNDER in this Rockies-Giants meeting.

Play the LOW.

Cleveland at DETROIT

The Indians have been playing some of their best baseball of the season, as they come to Detroit having won 7 in a row.

Still, the G-Man is going to go with the Tigers who just wrapped up a winning weekend at Kansas City, and are actually 33-28 at home this season. The Tigers have also won 4 of the 6 games played against the Tribe at Comerica Park.

Armando Galarraga has been an Indian-killer this year, as Galarraga has won all 3 of his starts this year against the Indians, working 18 innings while allowing 7 runs to score. Galarraga is up to 12-4 on the year, and has won his last 3 starts, with the Tigers going 16-6 when he is on the mound.

Zach Johnson will counter for the Indians, and thus far he hasn't fooled many batters in his brief call up with the big club, as he has worked 12 innings, allowing 15 hits, and 7 earned runs.

Have to believe the Tigers are going to take care of business with their "ace" on the hill.

Take Detroit on the RUN LINE, as Galarraga takes care of business.

CHICAGO CUBS at PITTSBURGH

The Cubs became yesterday with their 6-1 win over the Nationals the first team in the majors this season to reach the 80 wins mark. And nothing better than begin now a series against a team they have been dominating lately: the Pirates. It's only necessary to say that the head to head this season is 11-4 for the Cubs right now.

Today the Cubs will send the southpaw Ted Lilly to the field, who has been very solid after  the All-Star break, but who is also coming from his first defeat in this same span. Even though this loss against the Reds, Lilly had a quality start, as he has only allowed 2 runsin 7 innings, however that was enough for a loss, as the offense of the Cubs simply didn't exist in that ballgame. Lilly has been also consistent on the road with 5-3 and 4.04 ERA. However in the two times this season he has faced the Pirates at the PNC Park, Lilly had poor performances, allowing 9 runs in 9 innings, even though more recently at home, he managed to get a quality start against the Pirates.

On the other, Kartens will start for the Pirates and surely he will enter the field confident today. I remember he debuted against the Cubs as an huge dog (+197) and on the road, going scoreless in 6 innings, managing to get a memorable debut win. Curiously in this adventure of Kartens in Pittsburgh, he hasn't been as consistent at home, as he is on the road and in two outings against the Reds and the Mets, he allowed 4 runs in each game, going always deep in the game.

The Pirates were always swept by the Brewers this weekend, even though yesterday they took Milwaukee to the extra innings. So, the team will come fired up for today, however the Cubs are a power club and honestly it will be hard for Kartens to repeat his debut performance today, after all he's no more a unknown pitcher. However, we have the question of the value. The Cubs are a heavy chalk, in a situation it may not be easy for them, having in account what happened in the past with these pitchers in the field.

Re: Monday Service Plays

Tony Karpinski

Chicago White Sox vs. Baltimore Orioles     
Play: Baltimore Orioles   

Baltimore is a good home team, with a winning record, and plays their 7th straight home game here. This Orioles offense is above average. In fact, Baltimore ranks 4th in the AL in runs scored despite getting swept over the weekend by the Yankees.

Over the last 10 games the O's have scored in double digits 4 times, including 16 at Detroit. The White Sox have never seen lefty starter Chris Waters (2-0). Meanwhile, Chicago is off an emotionally grueling series with Tampa Bay, getting beat back to back games at home. That means they slipped behind Minnesota in this wild pennant race. White Sox's starter Clayton Richard is favored here, yet he's 1-2 with a 6.75. On the road the 24-year old has been even worse, at 0-2 with a 9.90 ERA. A great spot for the home dog and their strong offense at the Yard.

1 Unit on A’s/Angels O 8

The Angels could easily score 8 runs on their own in a high scoring AL West ball game Monday.  The OVER is 5-1 in Angels’ last 6 home games vs. a team with a losing record.  The OVER is 4-1 in the Angels’ last 5 home games.  The OVER is 11-3 in Angels last 14 during game 1 of a series.  The OVER is 5-1 in Jared Weavers’ last 6 starts during game 1 of a series.  The OVER is 4-1 in the A’s last 5 starts against a right-handed starter.  I expect the Angels to get plenty of runs off of Dallas Braden and even the A’s to get their bats going against Jared Weaver.  Cash in with the OVER 8 runs in this AL West Clash.

3* on San Francisco Giants -129

Matt Cain has had great success against the Rockies in his career.  Cain is 6-3 with a 2.89 ERA in 12 career starts against Colorado.  Cain is undefeated with a 2.91 ERA over his last 3 starts, so expect another solid outing from this stud tonight.  Jeff Francis has battled injuries all season and he still hasn’t full recovered.  The Rockies are 1-9 in road games when playing against a bad team (Win Pct. 38% to 46%) this season.  The Giants are 8-2 when playing against a bad team (Win Pct. 38% to 46%) in the second half of the season this season.  With the Giants playing the bad teams better, and Matt Cain being more dominant starting pitcher in this match-up, we’ll bet San Francisco at home Monday.

Las Vegas Insider

The Rangers were 50-46 at the break but have gone 13-22 since, to fall 17 games back of the A's in the AL West, despite being in second-place. The Royals have had similar post-break troubles, as their 7-3 win over the Tigers on Sunday ended a seven-game losing streak and only improved their record to 13-21 since the All Star game (Royals are in last-place in the AL Central, 18 1/2 games behind the White Sox). However, one can't blame Gil Meche for KC's second-half woes, as the right-hander is 4-0 with a 2.17 ERA in his seven post-break starts, with the Royals winning SIX of those seven games. Most will remember he signed a huge $55 million free agent deal with KC before the start of the '07 season, despite owning only 55 wins in his six years with the Mariners (a million for each win, the story went!). While Meche pitched well last year (3.67 ERA), pitching for the Royals comes with a 'price' and he finished 9-13 on the season (team was 15-19 in his starts). He struggled at the start of this year, going just 3-8 over his first 14 starts (team was 4-10) but he began turning things around in mid-June. Going back to June 15, he's 7-1 over 13 starts, with the Royals going 11-2. That bodes well here vs the Rangers, who have dropped 14 of their last 17 games coming in. The pitching staff, which owns a major-league-worst 5.41 ERA, has been the main culprit during the team's 17-game slide. It's allowed 189 hits and 67 walks over 148 innings, while positing a 6.45 ERA. Over the last 14 contests, Ranger pitchers have allowed seven or more runs 12 times. Scott Feldman gets the nod tonight. All 73 of his big league appearances prior to this year were out of the bullpen but 20 of his 22 appearances in '08 have been as a starter. He's 4-5 with a 5.15 ERA on the year, as the Rangers have gone 6-14 in his 20 starts. He won his first start back from the break (6-1 at Chicago) but has gone 0-2 with a 6.33 ERA in his last five starts, with the Rangers losing all five. The play is KC behind Meche in this one.

CHARGERS -5.5 -109 over Seahawks

Matt Hasselbeck is out as Seattle's quarterback for this game (back stiffness.) Third-stringer Charlie Frye will be Hasselback's backup because Seneca Wallace, the 2nd-stringer, is recovering from a groin problem.Seattle's starting center, Chris Spencer, is also missing because of back trouble.Are you ready?...Backup center Chris Gray is also out because of back trouble.Are counting? That's a third-string quarterback behind a third-string center, the two most important positions for any sports bettor.

Chargers' head coach, Norm Turner, figures to use this game to test a lot of his starting players. We expect the Chargers' 'A' players to take the field. Like many coaches, Turner figures to be serious about tonight's third week of preseason. Look for Turner to rest a lot of his starters next week, using Week Four to decide which players to cut from his team.

In our newsletter yesterday we wrote the script in last night's Bills-Colts' game, and we feel at least as good about tonight's game. Pawn your wife's vacuum cleaner if you have to, but get down on this game.

1* on Seahawks/Chargers Over 37

With the Seahawks averaging 31.5 points per game this preseason, and the Chargers putting up 31 points in their lone home win over the Cowboys, this is a very low total that these teams should be able to overcome without a problem Monday night.  Seattle is 6-0 OVER as a preseason underdog the last 3 seasons.  Seattle is 13-3 OVER after allowing 3 points or less in the first half last game in the preseason.  San Diego is 10-1 OVER after allowing 150 or less passing yards in their last game in the preseason.  Take the OVER.
