Oakland Athletics vs. LAA Angels
Play: Oakland

Ai Simulator 3* graded play on Oakland A’s – Been focusing extensive time on the AiS and the results it has for Thursday’s College Football action – which is quite strong – so the reports for baseball will be briefer than usual. Supporting this graded play is a system that has gone 56-44 making 53.1 units since 1997. Play against all favorites with a money line of -110 or higher that is off a loss to a division rival as a favorite of -200 or higher and starting a pitcher who gave up 1 or less earned runs last outing. Here is a second system that has gone 61-49 making 51.3 units since 1997. Play against any team off a loss to a division rival as a favorite of -200 or higher and starting a pitcher who gave up 1 or less earned runs last outing. Anaheim starter Lackey is almost always in the favorite role, but many times this has become a false favorite. Note that he is 14-18 and losing a significant 16.5 Units against the money line in home games versus an AL team with an on base percentage .320 or worse over the last 2 seasons. Take the A’s in the upset.

Jimmy Boyd

Arizona D-Backs vs. San Diego Padres
Play: Total: Under     

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.

PRICELESS PICKS

1 Unit on Minnesota Twins -168

The Mariners are 4-12 in their last 16 overall and 1-7 in their last 8 vs. the American League Central.  Minnesota went down in extras yesterday, but it will bounce back here as the Twins know they need to take advantage when playing lesser opponents down the stretch.  The Twins are an awesome 18-3 in their last 21 games vs. a left-handed starter so Rowland-Smith doesn't have much of a chance against this lefty-crushing club tonight.  Take the Twins.

Wunderdog

Oakland at Los Angeles Angels
Pick: Game Total UNDER 7.5-120

The wheels have really come off for the A's as they are just 9-29 over their last 38 games. The reason is quite simple - they don't score! They have scored just 106 runs in their last 38 games, or 2.8 a game. The Angels offense has suddenly gone cold as well plating just 34 runs in their last 11, or three runs a game. Now they face a hot pitcher in Greg Smith who has a 1.72 ERA in his last three starts. The A's must face John Lackey, who is amongst the AL Leaders in ERA. Lackey has allowed three runs or less in 14 of 18 starts, and this game looks to be similar to last night's 2-1 score, so we will play UNDER here.

Re: Tuesday Service Plays

Chip Chirimbes

CHICAGO CUBS

Carlos Zambrano bounced back from two sub-par outings his last time out. He's endured very few rough starts while pitching in Pittsburgh. The Chicago ace looks to help the first-place Cubs to a fourth straight victory and continue their dominance over the struggling Pirates on Tuesday night at PNC Park. After giving up 14 earned runs in 10 1-3 innings over his previous two starts, Zambrano (13-5, 3.29 ERA) overcame a sore tooth and four walks to allow a run and six hits in seven innings of Chicago's 3-2 win over Cincinnati on Thursday - his first victory in four starts. While Zambrano has done that more often than not, he continues to be a force at the plate after homering against the Reds to extend his hitting streak to seven games he's started with four homers and 13 RBIs this season. Back on the mound, Zambrano looks to continue his success at PNC Park where he is 6-1 with a 3.47 ERA in 11 starts. The right-hander is 10-5 with a 3.47 ERA in 21 starts overall versus the Pirates, including 1-0 in three outings this season.

LT Profits

BLUE JAYS / DEVIL RAYS UNDER 7

Roy Halladay of the Toronto Blue Jays is arguably the best pitcher in baseball, while few pitchers have been as dominant at home as James Shields of the Tampa Bay Rays, so runs should be hard to come by tonight. Halladay is 15-9 with a fantastic 2.68 ERA and 1.04 WHIP in 198 innings, and he personally has more Complete Games than any other team in the league. He has maintained his form all year, as he comes into this contest off of six consecutive Quality Starts, with one of those coming vs. these Rays in a tough-luck 3-0 loss in Toronto. Now Shields is 11-7 with a 3.68 ERA, but the real story is that he is 8-1 at home with a 2.21 ERA and a microscopic 0.95 WHIP in 101.2 home innings. He has six Quality Starts in his last seven outings, and he allowed just four runs in the lone non-quality effort. He is also a perfect six for six in his career in Quality Starts vs. the Blue Jays, including three starts this season. Throw in the fact that these are the top two bullpens in the American League in ERA, and the Under seems like an easy call here.


TWINS / MARINERS UNDER 8½

Scott Baker of the Minnesota Twins has been very solid this year while Ryan Rowland-Smith of the Seattle Mariners keeps improving with each start of his young career, so look for a low scoring contest here. Rowland-Smith has made just five major league starts, and his last one was arguably his best start yet. He allowed just one run and four hits in seven innings vs. the Oakland Athletics, and he should be anxious to redeem himself after getting bombed by these Twins at Minnesota the first time he faced them. Baker meanwhile is 7-3 for the season with a nice 3.74 ERA and 1.17 WHIP in 127.2 innings. He has held his form well with a 3.10 ERA and 1.18 WHIP in his last three starts, and he has been outstanding in his last two road outings, allowing a total of three runs and only 11 hits in 15 innings. We look for each pitcher to maintain their current form here tonight.

Re: Tuesday Service Plays

Larry Ness

New York Mets @ Philadelphia Phillies
PICK: New York Mets

The Mets and Phillies play a brief two-game set this week in Philadelphia, with the Mets owning a half-game lead in the NL East. The Mets took FIVE of six games with the Phillies in July, including a three-game sweep in Philadelphia. Can the Mets put last year's collapse (owned a seven-game lead with just 17 games remaining) behind them? A two-game sweep here would surely be a good start. Pedro Martinez gets the call for the New Yorkers and while he's only won two games in his last seven starts (team is 4-3), he's pitched very well. Martinez owns a 2.88 ERA over that stretch, which began with a win at Philadelphia where he went 5.1 innings while allowing five hits and two ERs on July 7. The ageless Jamie Moyer (11-7, 3.54 ERA) gets the nod for Philly and the lefty is hoping he can finally get some support from his teammates. Moyer's posted a splendid 2.66 ERA over his last 14 starts but is a modest 5-4 during that span (team is 7-7), as the Phillies have scored four runs or less in all but ONE of those 14 starts. He'll likely need some support to win here, as he's facing a New York team which has gone 26-14 vs lefties this year (averaging 4.9 YPG). However, that support may not be coming, as the Phillies are just 14-14 at home vs righties in '08, averaging a modest 3.9 RPG. Take the Mets.

BEN BURNS

Minnesota Twins at Seattle Mariners
Prediction: Seattle Mariners

The line on Minnesota is too high. The Twins have now lost three in a row, including last night's 4-2 setback as -200 favorites. The Mariners, on the other hand, have now won three of their last four. Minnesota's Baker has 4.10 ERA on the road. Seattle's Smith has a 3.80 mark at home. The M's bullpen has also been significantly better at home than Minnesota's has been on the road. Consider taking the generous price with the home dog.

Re: Tuesday Service Plays

Lenny Del Genio

Game: Oakland Athletics at Los Angeles Angels
Prediction: Under

Reason: Play Under Oakland/LA Angels at 10:05 ET. We?re looking for a repeat of last night?s 2-1 pitching duel here. Angels are likely to come out on top, but at this price, it?s not worth the risk. What we do know is that A?s starter Greg Smith is 13-1 Under in the underdog role, including 11 for 11 on the road. He?s also gone Under in NINE straight starts. LA starter John Lackey is certainly no stranger to low scoring affairs as he is 11-2 Under with a total of 7 to 8.5. Take Under.

1 Unit on Philadelphia Phillies -120

The Phillies are rolling right now after sweeping the Dodgers in four games.  The good news is that Jimmy Rollins went 3-3 against the Dodgers last night to bust out of his slump.  Rollins’ speed will play a huge factor deciding this series with the Mets, and I’ll back Jamie Moyer and the Phillies in Game 1 tonight.  Moyer is 1-0 with a brilliant 1.83 ERA through his last three starts.  Moyer owns a lifetime 2.74 ERA against the Mets as well.  Moyer is 20-8 against division opponents over the last 2 seasons.  The Phillies are 14-4 after allowing 2 runs or less 2 straight games over the last 2 seasons.  Phillies’ starting pitching is really coming around in the second half of the season, and look for Moyer to throw another solid outing tonight to give Philly a great shot at the win.  Cash in with the Phillies as the favorite.

Re: Tuesday Service Plays

John Ryan

Colorado Rockies vs. San Francisco Giants
Pick: San Francisco Giants   

Ai Simulator 5* graded play on San Francisco – Colorado has a rough role here and has been a tough one now for the past 10 seasons. They are just 119-210 (-57.6 Units) against the money line in road games versus an average bullpen whose ERA is 3.75 to 4.50 since 1997. SF is an excellent role that has been a money maker for more than 10 seasons as they are 422-282 (+77.4 Units) against the money line versus NL teams allowing 4.8 or more runs/game on the season since 1997. Rockies starter De La Rosa is just 5-21 losing 13.6 units since 1997 when facing divisional opponents. SF is a solid 10-3 making 9.6 units with a struggling bullpen whose ERA is over 6.00 the last 15 games. Take SF 
   

Minnesota Twins vs. Seattle Mariners
Pick: Seattle Mariners     

Ai Simulator 5* graded play on Seattle – Ryan Rowland-Smith is coming off an impressive start going 7 innings allowing just 4 hits and 1 ER against Oakland. This will certainly carry over to this start as well. This will be his third start of the season and he has pitched at the MLB level in years past. Seattle is working him to become a much needed starter for next season and that certainly took a big step forward in his last start. Look for more of the same tonight and a Seattle win based on the AiS summary data. Many times Minnesota will lose focus when playing weaker teams. Note that they are just 6-15 (-12.7 Units) against the money line when playing against a terrible team with a win percentage of <=38% over the last 2 seasons. 
   

Chicago White Sox vs. Baltimore Orioles
Pick: Baltimore Orioles   

Ai Simulator 5* graded play on Baltimore – Been focusing extensive time on the AiS and the results it has for Thursday’s College Football action – which is quite strong – so the reports for baseball will be briefer than usual. Supporting this graded play is a system that has gone 108-79 for 58% making 68 units since 1997. Play on home dogs with a money line of +100 or higher and with an overused bullpen that pitches more than 3.2 innings per game and with a cold starting pitcher sporting an ERA >= 6.50 over his last 10 starts. Take Baltimore 
   

Cincinnati Reds vs. Houston Astros (MLB)
Pick: Cincinnati Reds   

Ai Simulator 5* graded play on the Reds – Supporting this graded play is a system that has gone 51-26 making 37.4 units since 2002. Play on road dogs with a money line of +100 to +150 that is a cold hitting team batting .225 or worse over their last 5 games and with a tired bullpen throwing 9+ innings over the last 2 games. Reds in a solid role – and often times have been in the dog role featured today – noting they are 31-20 (+15.7 Units) against the money line in road games vs. poor fielding teams - (turning 0.8 or less DP's/game) in the second half of the season since 1997.

Info Plays

3* on N.Y. Yankees -155

This is the biggest series of the season for the Yankees, and they’ll take Game 1 over the Red Sox and Tim Wakefield tonight.  Andy Pettitte (13-9, 4.17 ERA) looks to continue the momentum for New York when he takes the hill.  The veteran lefthander has gone seven innings in each of his last three starts and allowed one run and five hits in New York's 5-1 victory at Toronto last Wednesday.  Tim Wakefield is 0-8 when playing against a team with a winning record in the second half of the season the last two seasons.  The Yankees have seen the knuckleball pitcher twice already this season, beating him 10-3 and 5-4 in the two meetings.  Wakefield gave up 6 earned runs in his last start against New York.  Bet the Yankees at home.
