Monday Service Plays

Re: Monday Service Plays

Jeff Bonds

SDC / NYJ Over 44.5

The New York Jets (1-1) travel to take on the winless San Diego Chargers (0-2) in a MNF game that will most certainly live up to the hype - an OFFENSIVE GAME.

Both quarterbacks should find ample time to throw the ball on Monday night, as they are protected by a couple of the best offensive lines in all of football.

San Diego has been firing on all cylinders since the second half of Week 1 against Carolina and will surely go for the jugular offensively to get in the win column.

New York comes off a disappointing loss to New England last week and back-to-back divisional games which will allow the Chargers to exploit the Jets defense due to lack of focus. J

Jets QB Brett Favre is a perfect 5-0 against the Chargers in his career and had a field day against them in Green Bay last year - throwing for three TDs and no INTs. Expect him to have a HUGE game as former San Diego head coach Marty Schottenheimer's son is the offensive coordinator for New York. With no Shawn Merriman - the Chargers will have to blitz to get to the quarterback and the future Hall of Famer will make them pay.

In the last two years following back-to-back divisional games - the Jets games have gone over by an average of 12.5 points.

The Chargers are a pissed off football team and have gone OVER the total in 10 of their last 12 games following an ATS loss and 6-1 ATS following a SU loss.

Light up the scoreboard - The OVER in MNF goes to a PERFECT 4-0 this year

Los Angeles Angels at Seattle Mariners

Los Angeles' Ervin Santana (15-6, 3.33 ERA) is 1-1 with a 3.48 ERA in his last three starts.  The right-hander is 5-2 with a 4.32 ERA in 11 career starts versus the Mariners

Seattle's Ryan Rowland-Smith (4-2, 3.53) is 0-0 with a 3.38 ERA in his last three starts. The lefthander Rowland-Smith has a 4.05 ERA in seven career outings versus the Angels.

Los Angeles Angels are 9-2 in their last 11 games and have won their last four on the road. Meanwhile, the plummeting Seattle Mariners have lost 11 straight and eight of its last 9 games against Los Angeles.

Take the LA Angels with Ervin Santana on the mound. The Angels have won eight of the righty's last nine starts against Seattle, 2-0 in four starts this season. The Mariners have dropped four of  Rowland-Smith's last five starts at Safeco Field.

Los Angeles Angels -155

Drew Gordon

Oakland +115 at TEXAS 

While both these teams will be watching the postseason from the comfort of their couches, you wouldn't know it by the Athletics play lately, going 7-1 over their last 8 games! Although they've struggled in Arlington this season, they're catching the Rangers at the right time, with nothing to play for AND slumping, losers of 4 straight, including a 3-game home sweep at the hands of the Angels.

Pitching match up might seem to favor the Rangers at first, but upon deeper review, do you really trust Kevin Millwood? Sure, he's pitching on 5 days rest, but in that spot he's gone 2-3 with a 6.05 ERA this season. Not to mention, he's been terrible throughout September, going 0-2 with an ugly 7.50 ERA in his last 3 starts!

Opposing Millwood is the A's lefty Greg Smith, who got knocked around for 6 runs in 5 2/3 innings against Texas back on September 12th. I tell you this for two reasons: A. Smith has had his troubles against Texas, but remains 1-1 with an excellent 2.89 ERA in the month of September. And B. Rangers are batting just .247 against lefties over their last 10 games, so look for Smith to finally get some redemption in this one.

Finally, there's no doubt the A's have the edge in the bullpen, but especially of late. The Rangers 'pen has posted a laughable 8.03 ERA over their last 10 games, as compared to just a 2.25 ERA over the same span for Oakland! In the end, the A's are riding a nice hot streak, have the better starter, the better bullpen, and catch the Rangers slumping... Perfect oppurtunity to grab some of that plus money Monday night!

Take Oakland behind Smith over Texas and Millwood in this MLB match up.

2♦ OAKLAND

Monarchs/Silver Stars Under 145

Additional Write-up:

I just don't see the Silver Stars getting embarassed at home here. Keep in mind that I wouldn't want to lay this many points in an an elimination game, but I do favor San Antonio to do that here, I do like the under. Hence, the favorite/under theory that I have which is parallel to the dog/over theory. I think San Antonio comes out fired up, plays great defense and ends up winning this game as the public feels that it will go over by a 2:1 margin, but I just don't believe so as there are many factors that point to the under here - although I do feel that it will be a tight cover. But, I don't think it is highly improbable for this game to land in the high 130's. The under is 5-2 for the Monarchs following an ATS win such as the last game, which goes to show they have trouble repeating success as they have all year and although there are many previous trends pointing to the over here such as the first 2 ballgames in this series, I'll take the under.

Re: Monday Service Plays

Matt Rivers

For Monday take the Diamondbacks in Busch.

I cannot say that I truly trust this Arizona offense at all and Brandon Webb has been far from lights out over the past month but this price is still too cheap to pass up what is still easily one of the best pitchers on the planet.

Webb and that sinkerball has a world of upside and could dazzle at anytime. The Cardinals are coming off of that series in Wrigley Field and easily could pack it in here, if they have not already, as guys like Rick Ankiel and Chris Carpenter are done for the season and after a very successful first four months to the season Tony LaRussa's squad has been lacking, to be kind, for the past month or so. The Redbirds are just not playing with the same overachieving passion as they did earlier and it has shown in loss after loss.

Todd Wellemeyer is fairly mediocre and certainly well inferior when compared to Webb and that is an extreme understatement.

Arizona needs to win every game remaining in order to try and catch Manny and the Dodgers and to get them with the reigning Cy Young award winner and a great great hurler against Wellemeyer is enough for me to lay a small price like this for sure.

They may have Albert but we pretty much are backing the superior everything at a small price and that's enough for me.

Arizona Diamondbacks at St. Louis Cardinals
Play: Arizona Diamondbacks -122

These are two teams heading in opposite directions. The Diamondbacks have been hot, winning six of their last seven. The beat-up Cardinals lost on Sunday, falling for the ninth time in their last 11 games. The Cardinals have scored two runs or less six times in that span.

Arizona's Brandon Webb has posted a 1.20 ERA en route to winning his last two outings. He got shelled in three straight starts before that, but I attribute that to the pressure of trying to snag his 20th win of the season. He was outstanding before that point and he has been brilliant since. Cardinals slugger Albert Pujols is batting just .238 (5-for-21) against Webb.

Todd Wellemeyer gets the ball for St. Louis. Wellemeyer is 0-2 with an 8.22 ERA in one start and four relief appearances against Arizona. Wellemeyer has been the victim of poor run support in recent weeks, going 1-4 in his last five starts despite posting a 3.09 ERA and a .200 opponents batting average during that span. The Cardinals have given Wellemeyer an average of 1.4 runs to work with in those contests. The Cardinals are 1-6 in Wellemeyer's last 7 home starts vs. a team with a winning record.

Arizona is surging, fighting for their playoff lives. The limping Cardinals are all but eliminated from playoff contention and what is left of this team appears to have given up. Webb should have no trouble plowing through the struggling Cardinals lineup.

Take Arizona

LT Profits

Kansas City Royals @ Detroit Tigers Under 9.5

The Kansas City Royals and the Detroit Tigers have a history of playing low scoring games against each other, and we look for this to continue tonight when Gil Meche opposes Zach Miner.

Meche has been a workhorse with a commendable 12-11 record for the Royals, with Kansas City going 17-15 as a team in all of his starts. He is coming off of a fine outing vs. the Seattle Mariners, where he allowed two runs and six hits in seven innings for his third Quality Start in his last four starts and his fifth in his last seven outings.

Meche has actually pitched better on the road than at home this season, as he owns a nice 3.68 ERA and 1.22 WHIP in 16 road starts. Perhaps most importantly, Meche has reeled off five consecutive Quality Starts vs. these Tigers including a perfect three for three this season.

Now Miner has been mediocre at best, but he did have an excellent outing at Texas last time out where he allowed just two runs on five hits in 7.1 innings, and the Royals are one team that Miner has owned this season.

He has allowed a grand total of one run in three starts vs. Kansas City this year covering 19 innings. Now we do not expect that kind of success again here, but we do expect him to pitch reasonably well enough to keep this total down.

Finally, the Under is now 16-5-1 in the last 22 meetings between these teams.

Pick: Royals, Tigers Under 9.5


Oakland Athletics +125

The Oakland Athletics and the Texas Rangers are two clubs going in opposite directions, so the Athletics offer some very nice value as decided underdogs in this spot.

Oakland may have a very bright future, as this club has played much better since filling their lineup with youngsters after September 1. The team is playing with a youthful exuberance after plodding along the first five months of the season, and the Athletics are now 7-1 in their last eight games.

On the flip side, the Rangers quit on this season a long time ago, and they have been downright dismal since the All-Star break. Texas has lost four straight games and six of their last eight, and they have had an alarming fall-off offensively after tearing the ball up the first half of the season.

We will go with the hot team vs. the dead team as an underdog in this spot.

Pick: Athletics +125

New York Jets at San Diego Chargers -8.5

The Chargers come into this must win game after losing last week to the Broncos 39-38, while the Jets lost to the Patriots 19-10. The Chargers are in a 0-2 hole and need to win to get their season back on track. The Jets are still trying to figure out their offense with Brett Favre at the helm and last week's loss to New England showed that the Jets still have a ways to go. The Jets are led by QB Brett Favre (375 yds 3 TD 1 INT) and his main targets are WR's Jerricho Cotchery (4 rec 100 yds 1 TD) and Chansi Stuckey (6 rec 80 yds 2 TD). The Jets rushing attack is led by RB Thomas Jones (171 yds 1 TD). The Chargers are led by QB Phillip Rivers (594 yds 6 TD 1 INT) and his 2 main targets are TE Antonio Gates (8 rec 122 yds 1 TD) and WR Chris Chambers (5 rec 127 yds 3 TD). The Chargers rushing attack is led by RB LeDanian Tomlinson (123 yds), who has not looked like himself in the last 2 games and is banged up and may not play in this game.

Staff Pick: The Chargers would be 2-0 and leading the AFC West is 2 plays would have gone differently. However, things did not go their way and they are 0-2 and at the bottom of the division. Tomlinson has a bruised toe and may not play in this game, which would give the Jets a huge advantage. The Jets are playing great defense ranked 8th in the league and are especially strong against the run. On the other hand the Chargers are playing poor defense and rank 30th out of 32 teams. San Diego has the offensive firepower, but their D needs to play better than they have their first 2 games. The Chargers secondary is giving up the 2nd most yards (293.5 per game) and with a guy names Favre coming to town that aint a good thing. The Jets only have the leagues 25th ranked offense and they were stymied last week in their loss to the Patriots. Will Tomlinson play? Can the Charger D step up and stop Favre? If the answers to these questions are no then the Bolts are looking at 0-3. Look for the Chargers D to bounce back and play a decent game and for their offense to score just enough points to get in the win column, but the game will be close and the Jets should cover the spread.

Chargers 27 Jets 20

Florida -115 at CINCINNATI 

Let’s take the Marlins this afternoon over the Reds.

Florida will start Ricky Nolasco and the right-hander looks to finish out a strong 2008 campaign.  He’s 15-7 on the year with a 3.52 ERA, including a 2-0 mark with a 2.49 ERA in his last three starts.

Aaron Harang will get the start for Cincinnati and he’s coming off a complete game shutout.  Unfortunately the right-hander hasn’t had any consistency this year, and his 5-16 record is proof of that.

Look for Harang to stumble this time out while Nolasco delivers another quality outing.

Take the Marlins for the road win.

Major League Baseball:
Royals at Tigers OVER 9.0 -110

JETS +9.0 -115 at Chargers
The over/under line on this game has gone up to 44.5 from 44.0.....We'd take the 'Under' if we could find a 45.5. That could happen as game-time gets closer. We're expecting the Jets to score between 17 and 24 points while the Chargers score somewhere between 20 and 27 points.

Royals at Tigers OVER 9.0
This over/under line is starting to slip against us - (to 9.5) - and we would NOT take the 9.5. Try to find a 9.0, or pass

Kansas City Royals +112

The Kansas City Royals and Detroit Tigers will square off tonight at Comerica Park, both have a combined 13 games left and are cruising to the end of dismal seasons. However, the Royals do have a little bit left to play for, as they could pass the Tigers in the standings and finish out of last place in the AL Central for the first time since Attila ruled the Huns. We are going with the Royals as a +112 dog tonight.

Gil Meche is having another stellar year for the Royals, even if his numbers are slightly down from last year. He still possesses a 4.08 ERA, 12-11 record and a 1.32 WHIP. He has been particularly effective facing the Tigers since he joined the Royals last year. Kansas City is 4-2 versus Detroit when Meche starts and Meche’s team is 6-2 in his last eight starts against the Tigers. In those eight starts Meche allowed 18 earned runs (2.25 per game), struck out 43, and walked just 16. In his last four starts at Detroit, KC is 3-1 and Meche allowed seven earned runs (1.75 per game), struck out 22, and walked seven.

Zach Miner is having a quality year as well and he has been a decent starter for the Tigers since they converted him to one back in July. He has a 4.16 ERA and 1.41 WHIP, but Detroit is 7-4 in his eleven starts. He has been outstanding versus the Royals allowing just one earned run in three starts against them.

But yes, I am still going with Kansas City, and here’s why. Miner has received some of the best run support in the league since being made a starter (7.64 runs per game). In Miner’s last three starts at home the Tigers are 3-0, but Miner has yielded 14 earned runs in those three starts. The only reason Detroit won two of those games was due to the fact that they pounded out 23 runs. They will not do that tonight against KC; they have scored just 16 runs in Meche’s last five starts against them. I also look for KC to get a few off of Miner. The Royals were in their most dismal offensive stretch of the year on the three occasions they faced Miner. Right now they are perhaps their hottest stint, averaging 6.4 runs per game over their last 10.

I am not calling for an offensive outburst on the part of KC, but I am looking for more than one run. This should be a lower scoring affair, and I see KC besting Detroit by a run or two.

Pick:Royals +112

Scott Rickenbach

Over Easy Monday: 1* (regular play) OVER the total in Boston vs Cleveland

It is absolutely no surprise to us that this total dropped to a 9 after opening up at a 9.5 and this drop to a key number is offering substantial line value! Keep in mind that a 9 means we just need four runs from each team to guarantee no worse than a push. The reality here is that the Red Sox could get this game over the total all by themselves (more on that below) but we do expect the Indians to be able to scratch for at least four runs against Josh Beckett and Company tonight! The Red Sox right-hander has produced three straight solid starts but let’s not forget that he’s still just 5-4 on the season at Fenway Park with a 5.61 ERA. Teams are hitting .296 against Beckett in Boston and, although it will be chilly tonight in Boston that is still nothing that either one of these teams will struggle with. Cleveland isn’t exactly a “hot spot” on the weather map! The fact is that the Indians lineup is looking much better than it was for much of this summer as Victor Martinez and Travis Hafner have recently returned from injuries. The Indians have won 9 of their last 13 games and they’ve averaged over 7.5 runs per game in the nine victories! This team is playing some of it’s best ball of the season and their lineup is looking as strong as it has in a long time.

As for the Red Sox, they can clinch a playoff spot with a win tonight and so their lineup will be “stacked” against Zach Jackson of Cleveland and that’s bad news for the Indians southpaw. The 25 year old has simply been unable to enjoy success at the MLB level. His numbers this season are much like he’s produced throughout his career as he’s 2-5 with a 5.92 ERA and a .310 BAA in 17 career MLB games (14 starts). Jackson is unlikely to enjoy any success at all against a Red Sox team that crushes the ball at Fenway Park. Don’t be fooled by their lack of offensive production throughout much of their recent road trip. The BoSox are hitting just .268 at home but note that they are hitting .293 at home this season and they will absolutely “tee off” against Jackson tonight. More bad news for the Tribe here is that they have one of the worst bullpens in baseball so, once Jackson gets knocked out (early we expect), the Red Sox will continue to pound the ball as they look to clinch a playoff spot tonight. A total of 9 on this game, with the way the Indians have been hitting and with their subpar pitching on display, is an absolute bargain. Play OVER the total in Boston as a regular selection.

Lenny Del Genio

Oakland Athletics at Texas Rangers
Prediction: Under

If you believe in the old adage that ?chicks dig the long ball,? then you have to believe the Oakland?s Greg Smith has been experiencing plenty of lonely nights this season. Smith is 24-4 Under in his 28 starts this season, including all 17 nighttime starts and all 13 as a road underdog. This total is unusually high due to the opponent, the hard-hitting Texas Rangers, but they have scored five runs or less in 5 of their last 7 games. Oakland averages only 4.0 runs/game on the road this season. Take Under.

Re: Monday Service Plays

LARRY NESS

Oakland Athletics @ Texas Rangers
PICK: Texas Rangers

The Rangers can call themselves a second-place team but while FOUR of the other five second-place clubs are within 2 1/2 games (or closer) of the division leaders, the Rangers are a ridiculous 21 1/2 games behind the AL West-leading LA Angels. So much for being in second place. The Rangers own MLB's best team BA (.281) and are MLB's highest scoring team (5.50 RPG) but the Rangers also own MLB's worst overall team ERA (5.44) as well as MLB's worst bullpen ERA (5.12). To say the least, that's a bad 'daily-double.' However, in the Oakland A's, Kevin Millwood (9-9, 5.15 ERA) will be facing a team which is dead-last in the majors with a team BA of .241 and has scored just 620 runs (San Fran's scored 619, while San Diego's and Washington have scored 618). Opposing Millwood will be lefty Greg Smith, who has pitched well for most of the '08 season. Smith enters this game only 7-15 with a 4.09 ERA but it's not easy pitching for a team which can't score. In his three previous September starts, he's held both the Orioles (seven IP) and Angels (six IP) scoreless but in between allowed seven hits and six ERs (5.2 IP) to these Rangers. In four starts vs Texas, he's allowed 23 hits and 18 ERs (over 22.2 IP) for a 7.15 ERA. The Rangers are only 11-9 at home vs lefties in night games this year but they have averaged 6.9 RPG, which should give Millwood and the team's shaky bullpen some "breathing room." Take the Rangers.
