Matt Fargo

Texas Rangers at Kansas City Royals
Prediction: Kansas City Royals

The Royals dropped the first game of this series last night but they are in a good spot to get it back tonight. They are just 1-8 over their last nine games although that one victory did come on Sunday. The pitching has been the problem as they have a 6.02 ERA over the last 10 games. Most of that damage has come from the bullpen which has actually been pitching well for most of the season. The thinking here is that the pen won't even come into play tonight.

Texas is not playing much better as it has dropped six of its last eight games and going back even further, it is only 4-14 over its last 18 games. The Rangers have not won back-to-back games since August 4th and 5th so getting two in a row here will be a challenge. The pitching has been the problem here as well as Texas has allowed a whopping 6.9 rpg over those 18 games. The Rangers are Rangers are 0-7 in their last seven games after scoring five runs or more in their previous game.

I'm not sold on Kevin Millwood's last performance as he held the Tigers to just one run in a complete game. Prior to that, he had gone seven straight starts without a quality outing and posted a 7.91 ERA over that span with the opposition averaging 7.3 rpg over those seven games. Kansas City has been one tough foe for Millwood as he has allowed five runs or more in four of his last six starts against the Royals, posting a 7.52 ERA over that stretch including an 11.42 ERA in Kansas City.

Zack Greinke is coming off a decent effort against the Indians last time out as he allowed one earned run in five innings. Four unearned runs did him in. He has allowed two runs or fewer in four of his last five starts as he has a 2.97 ERA in those five games. He has a 1.50 in his last two outings against Texas and both of those came in hitter friendly Rangers Ballpark. He has been solid at home this season with a 3.39 ERA and eight of his 10 starts have been quality performances with the Royals going 7-3. Play Kansas City Royals 1.5 Units

Re: Tuesday Service Plays

Mr A

Milwaukee Brewers at St. Louis Cardinals

The Brewers have won the last six meetings versus St. Louis and five of the last seven at Busch Stadium.

Milwaukee's Ben Sheets (11-7, 3.75 ERA), is 1-2 with 3.32 ERA in his last three starts. The right-hander is 5-14 with a 4.20 ERA in 25 career starts versus Milwaukee.

St. Louis' Todd Wellemeyer (11-4, 3.79), is 3-0 with 2.33 ERA in his last three starts. The right-hander is  unbeaten in his last eight starts.

Take the Cardinals' with Todd Wellemeyer on the hill to quiet the Brewers bats. Milwaukee's ace Ben Sheets is currently struggling and the Brewers have lost eight of Sheets’ last 10 starts versus the Cardinals.

St. Louis Cardinals -105

Toronto Blue Jays at Tampa Bay Rays

Both Roy Halladay and James Shields has been successful against today’ opponents, but the Blue Jays have had problems with the Rays. Tampa Bay has won ten of the last 13 meetings against Toronto and seven of the last 8 in Tampa Bay. Go with the Rays at Tropicana Field. Tampa Bay is 43-11 in their last 54 games at home, 47-18 this season.

Tampa Bay Rays -125

Scott Spreitzer

Milwaukee Brewers at St. Louis Cardinals

I'm playing the Brewers on Tuesday. Ben Sheets has been excellent in this role all season. He's led the Brewers to a 5-1 mark in six road night starts this season, producing a strong 1.76 ERA along the way. So, while he hasn't been getting the best press as of late, they haven't quite broken down his numbers like we have. Tonight, Sheets faces a Cardinal lineup that hasn't fared all that well in home night games against righthanders. I believe that will be the Redbird's downfall. Let's also not forget that the Brew-Crew have cashed 14 of their last 18 tickets overall, and they've won six in a row over their division rival. Look for the Brewers to make it seven straight with a big road win on Tuesday.

Play on: Milwaukee

VEGAS EXPERTS

Toronto Blue Jays at Tampa Bay Rays

As scary as it is to go against Roy Halladay in the underdog role (4-0 TSR L4 in that situation), we're going to pull the trigger as Rays starter James Shields has the resume to match with a 16-3 TSR as a favorite and a 13-1 TSR at home this season. As a team, Tampa is excellent in the home fave role, owning a 35-14 record. Halladay is 0-3 this year vs. the Rays with all three outings ranking amongst his worst starts of the year.

Tom Stryker

NY METS +113 over Philadelphia

Off its emotional revenge sweep over Los Angeles, Philadelphia will find things a little bit tougher against New York on Tuesday night. The Mets are currently in the top spot in the NL East standings and they know a few wins here will give them some much needed breathing room in the standings.

To get this series started out on the right foot, New York will turn to veteran Pedro Martinez. In the month of August, Martinez has been in a zone. With 31.1 innings completed, Pedro has been touched for only 11 earned runs and 27 hits. That breaks down to a decent 3.16 ERA. Martinez has been effective when throwing with more rest too. In fact, the Mets have cashed 13 of their last 19 when Pedro has pitched with four or more days in between starts.

Knocking off Philadelphia southpaw Jamie Moyer won't be easy. Moyer owns a blistering 1.83 ERA in his last three starts. Fortunately for us, Jamie hasn't had his best stuff at home this year. With 77.0 frames in the bank, Moyer has been clocked for 37 earned runs and 90 hits. That adds up to a soft 4-4 record and an average 4.32 ERA.

On a technical note, the Mets have posted victories win 16 of their last 21 in division action and cashed 11 of their last 15 versus left-handed pitching. Take New York with listed pitcher Martinez.

Jeff Alexander Sports

1 unit on LA Dodgers -191

The Dodgers know they need to take advantage of playing the lowly Nats here to gain some ground in the NL West race.  The Dodgers are 11-1 in the last 12 meetings in this series and 5-0 in Lowe's last 5 starts vs. the Nationals.  The Dodgers are 4-0 in Lowe's last 4 starts vs. the National League East and 37-16 in Lowe's last 53 starts vs. a team with a losing record.  The Nationals are a terrible 5-16 in their last 21 games following an off day and just 17-43 in their last 60 overall.  Bet the Dodgers behind Lowe tonight.

Re: Tuesday Service Plays

Matt Foust

Oakland Athletics @ Los Angeles Angels Under 7.5

Tonight the Athletics look to snag two wins in a row from the Angels in Los Angeles and they will do so with left hander Greg Smith on the hill. The Angels will counter with their ace, John Lackey. We are going to go with the UNDER in this AL West division battle.

Oakland starter Greg Smith possesses a stellar 3.75 ERA and a respectable 1.33 WHIP. Despite his strong numbers, he is just 6-12 on the year due to Oakland’s offensive ineptitude. Smith has allowed an average of 2.6 runs per game in his last five away starts, but Oakland has produced an average of just 2.00 runs per game. Consequently, Oakland went 1-4 in those games and the under went 5-0.

Smith has three career outings against the Angels and the under is 2-0-1 in those starts. The southpaw has allowed Los Angeles just seven earned runs in total, and in his two starts at LA he has allowed a total of three earned runs. The average game score in his LA starts was 4.50.

John Lackey is having his usual solid year with a 3.09 ERA, 1.12 WHIP, and 10-2 record. Lackey is always tough at home and he has allowed just 2.5 earned runs per game in his last 10 home starts. In his last 10 starts against Oakland the under is 8-2 and the average game score was 5.8. In his last five goes at home against the A’s, Lackey has allowed just eight earned runs.

This should be a typical low scoring affair between these two teams.

Things to consider: Oakland has averaged just 2.7 runs per game in their last 10 road games. The Under is 13-1 in Greg Smith’s away starts and 20-3 on the season. The Under is 39-21 in Oakland road games and 52-30 in Oakland night games. The Under is 23-10 when LA faces a left handed pitcher and 13-7 when LA plays on a Tuesday. The Under is 12-6 in when John Lackey starts (2008 stat).

Take the UNDER 7.5

Florida is 8-21 when playing off a win in their last game and they are 5-16 after allowing 2 or less runs in their last game. The Marlins are 0-6 in the last 6 starts made by Scott Olsen.

1 Unit on D-backs/Padres UNDER 7 

With Webb on the hill, you can bet that the Pads won't be scoring many runs. With both teams playing at pitcher friendly Petco, I don't think we'll see more than 3 runs scored by the winning team - very similar to yesterday's game which ended up 4-2.  The Under is 5-1 in Webb's last 6 starts vs. the Padres, 4-1 in Webb's last 5 starts overall, and 4-0-1 in the Diamondbacks last 5 overall.  The Under is 8-2 in the Padres last 10 home games, 10-4 in Padres last 14 when their opponent scores 2 runs or less in their previous game, and 4-0 in Padres last 4 home games vs. a team with a losing road record.  Bet the UNDER.

Toronto Blue Jays at Tampa Bay Rays
Play On: Tampa Bay Rays -115

As good as Roy Halladay has been for the Blue Jays, he hasn't helped them beat the Rays in three starts. Tampa Bay is 9-3 against Toronto this season, and Halladay is 0-3 with a 5.32 ERA versus the Rays. The Rays are hitting .277 this season against Halladay.

James Shields has been impressive against Toronto, going 2-1 with a 2.53 ERA in three starts this season. Shields is 4-0 lifetime in five home starts against Toronto. The Rays are an incredible 13-1 in Shields' home starts this season. Shields owns a 2.21 ERA, 0.95 WHIP and .262 OOBP at Tropicana Field this season. The Rays are 18-4 in Shields' last 22 home starts vs. a team with a winning record and 5-0 in Shields' last 5 home starts vs. the Blue Jays.

The Rays are 10-1 in their last 11 games following a loss and 43-11 in their last 54 home games. The Rays are also 7-1 in their last 8 games following an off day. The Blue Jays are 3-10 in the last 13 meetings and 1-7 in the last 8 meetings in Tampa Bay.

Take Tampa Bay

Re: Tuesday Service Plays

THE BOOKIE PAYS YOU ? :x

=========================================================

The Angels cost us three in a row last night by only putting up ONE run! 
But... They won't do that twice. We're talking about the ABSOLUTE BEST
team in the big leagues. I personally GUARANTEE that the Angels score
more than one run tonight. I'm telling you that even though they let us down
last night, we're going to give them a chance to redeem themselves tonight.
Bottom Line... John Lackey + Oakland lineup = Angels WIN. **** Thanks.

Play: Over

Both teams are struggling mightily, but hitting the snot out of the ball. Texas is 4-13 in their L17, and Kansas City 2-11 in their L13 games. That said, with Millwood and Greinke on the bump, you can expect plenty of runs and hits once again. Look for 10-13 runs scored in this battle tonight. Play on the OVER
