Monday Service Plays

Michael Cannon

LA Dodgers at SAN DIEGO -135 

Take the Padres as the home chalk over the Dodgers.

This pitching matchup greatly favors San Diego, as Jake Peavy gets the nod opposite Hiroki Kuroda.

Peavy can mask any offensive shortcomings this Padres team may have because you know he’s coming out spinning nothing but zeros.  The right-hander posted a 1.74 ERA in 14 home starts last year and he’s absolutely owned the Dodgers in his career, going 13-1 with a 2.32 ERA in 22 starts.

Kuroda was 9-10 with a 3.73 ERA in his rookie campaign last year.  The right-hander was just 3-8 with a 3.78 ERA in 17 road starts last year and 2-1 with a 5.66 ERA in four starts against the Padres.

Take the Padres as the home chalk as they grab the win.

Chicago Cubs at HOUSTON -105 

We're on a 4-1 run with FREE plays and we'll improve on that tonight as we deliver our first baseball come winner of the season, playing the Astros at home to take care of the Cubs.

We're playing the Astros as a small favorite over Carlos Zambrano and the Cubs because of Houston ace Roy Oswalt. With this guy on the hill, Houston is going to give everybody fits. He's a true ace in this league and was great for Team USA in the World Baseball Classic.

Oswalt was 17-10 last season with a 3.54 ERA and was great down the stretch, tossing 11 straight quality starts (three earned runs or less and at least six innings pitched) to finish the year. He was 8-2 with a 1.44 ERA in those 13 games. In Houston, the veteral was 10-3 with a 3.73 ERA in 16 starts.

Houston is 55-18 in Oswalt's last 73 home starts, 6-1 in his last seven outings overall and 85-40 in his last 125 as a favorite. And the Astros won his last eight starts last season.

And look what Oswalt has done against the Cubs at home, he is 2-1 with a 1.23 ERA in his last three and he has a 3.88 ERA in 26 games against them overall.

Zambrano had the sensational year, but coming down the stretch, after Sept. 14, he went 0-2 with an 11.37 ERA, allowing 20 runs in 12 2/3 innings and he got shelled in the playoffs, giving up seven runs in 6 1/3 innings of a 10-3 loss to the Dodgers in Game 1 of the divisional series.

We love Oswalt in this one, so lay the small price and play the Astros.

NY Yankees at BALTIMORE 

After missing the postseason for the first time in a long time, the Yankees have reloaded, and their centerpiece of the rotation, CC Sabathia will be taking the bump at Camden Yards this Monday afternoon.

Obviously this early in the season, you don't expect your starter to go the route, but we do expect Sabathia to last a little longer than Baltimore hurler Jeremy Guthrie.

Baltimore hasn't seen Sabathia since the '07 season, while the Yankees have reached Guthrie for 15 runs over his last 25 innings of work against them.

The New York offense may be without A-Rod for this one, but Mark Texeira's bat should be a capable fill-in for the time being.

We like the Yanks to put up some big crooked numbers, while CC limits the O's bats to 6 or 7 goose eggs.

Play on the Yankees on the RUN LINE.

Matty O'Shea

PIT (+160) vs STL

I think the Cardinals are very overvalued in this spot, especially considering the pitching matchup.  Pittsburgh's Paul Maholm was 2-1 vs. St. Louis last season with a 3.05 ERA while Cardinals starter Adam Wainright surrendered 11 runs in 12 innings against the Pirates in two starts a year ago.  The cold weather could also be a factor, so let's take a shot on Pittsburgh as my NL Underdog Play O' the Day.

Michigan State Spartans at North Carolina Tar Heels
Play: Michigan State +8

There are still some of those out there but I got mine and you should be able to get yours by end of day. If you cannot, the current number will be OK. It is hard to figure what is in the minds of bettors for this contest tonight but I do know what is in the minds of those that are playing North Carolina. 98-63. That was the final score of the first meeting between these two back in early December and that score is very hard to forget. It was an NC Thrashing as they shot 48% from the court and 83% from the Free Throw Stripe, and did those things very often, as the Tarheels usually do. The only thing Michigan State did relatively right was rebound the ball with boards being virtually even throughout the contest. But we can't look at that game in relation to this this one because we have totally different dynamics and we have a Spartan Squad that was "Young" back in early December, and one now that is "Not." These Kids have grown a great deal and that is what Kilbasa Sausages will do for you as part of your regular diet. They have been putting plenty on condiments on their Buns, and they have been swallowing wins along the way. They certainly are relishing the fact that they have come this far as so are the People of this great state. Michigan State opened this season with a very high pace, and as kids will do, they made some shooting snafu's along the way. At one time this year, Michigan State was in the Top 15% of all teams tempo-wise in the country. They now are at the 30% Level. So what is going on? They are being more selective, they are driving the hoop more. The result is extraordinary offensive efficiency, greater rebound statistics, more free throw opps, more and better wins. North Carolina is North Carolina. Yada, Yada, Yada. They are good. Are they 8 points better than the Current Spartan Squad? I don't think so. The Michiganians will be in the crowd. They will be consuming a lot of Kilbasas. And this game is going to be wire to wire. I am grabbing my sausage, and I am grabbing these points.

CAL / LOS Over 5.5

When LOS ANGELES played as any home/road team - During Last 2 Years - With 1 Over or More - Won Last Game by 5 Goals or Less - With SU Record of 1 Win 2 Lost in L3G; The OVER is a perfect 11-0-0 for the LA Kings in this cycle the L2Y.

Jeff Scott Sports


Baltimore/ NY Yanks Over 8.5

Last year Camden Yards was the 3rd best hitting park in the league, as their games averaged 10.5 rpg. Last year CC Sabathia got off to a rocky start and could have similar struggles today vs a decent Baltimore offense that ranked 11th in scoring last year (4.86 rpg). Last year the Yanks were in the top 10 in most offensive categories abd they have had good success vs Guthrie as he owns a 4.62 ERA in 6 careeer starts vs them.  The Yanks got off to a slow start last year and you can bet they're ready to put some runs on the board early and often, even without ARod. I see double digits in this one.   


NY Mets -155 over CINCINNATI

Ben Burns

Cleveland Indians at Texas Rangers
Prediction: Under

Cliff Lee gets the call for the Tribe. While he didn't fare too well in the spring, all he did last season was go 22-3 with a 2.54 ERA and 1.11 WHIP, earning a CY Young award along the way.Although he didn't have great overall numbers, Millwood did see the 'under' go 7-5-1 in his 13 home starts. This afternoon, he'll face a Cleveland lineup which hit just .254 during last year's afternoon games, averaging only 4.1 runs in those games. Looking back a bit further and we find the 'under' at a highly profitable 59-28-4 the last two seasons, when the Indians have played during the afternoon. Consider the Under

Tom Freese

Detroit Tigers at Toronto Blue Jays
Prediction: Toronto Blue Jays

Toronto starter Roy Halladay has dominated Detroit going 11-3 with a 1.96 ERA in his 14 career starts against them. The Blue Jays are 50-23 when Halladay starts the first game of a series and they are 79-38 in his last 117 starts. Detroit starter Justin Verlander had more walks that strikeouts in Spring Training and the Tigers are 5-12 in his last 17 road starts. Detroit is 12-25 their last 37 games vs. the Blue Jays. PLAY ON TORONTO -(Halladay vs. Verlander)

Date: Monday, April 6, 2009

Game: New York Mets @ Cincinnati Reds

Sport: MLB

Time: 12:10PM CST

(901) New York Mets (-$156)

(Listing Santana Only)

The Reds don't have the pop in their lineup that they have had in the past with
Adam Dunn, Ken Griffey and Austin Kearns. Cincinnati is going to have to rely
on playing small ball and they will have a tough time doing so with the Mets ace
Johan Santana on the mound today. Mets get the win here.

Toronto-148 - This will be one of the better prices you will get on Halladay. The Tigers only hit .242 this spring, which was the worst in the league, and now will face a premium pitcher.
