DET (-130) vs MIN

I really like what I have seen from Edwin Jackson this season, as he has never had better command over his pitches at any point of his career. Over Jackson's L/3 starts he has a 1.45 ERA and a WHIP of 1.125 in 18 2/3 IP. In two home starts this season, Edwin has a ERA of 3.00 & a WHIP of 1.083. The Tigers face the left-handed Francisco Liriano tonight. Detroit has a 6-2 record vs left-handed starters this season, & the Twins are just 2-7 vs a team with a winning record this season. Liriano is 0-2 with a 12.46 ERA and a WHIP of 2.016 in 2 road starts this season. He's allowed 10 hits, 8 walks, 12 ER, in just 8 2/3 IP. Not very good numbers to say the least. Liriano is 2-1 with a 4.93 ERA in seven appearances - five starts - against the Tigers, but 0-1 with an 8.25 ERA in two starts and one relief appearance against them in Detroit. The bullpen numbers are fairly even between these two clubs, with the slight edge going to Detroit, as they do have a bullpen ERA of 4.83 & WHIP of 1.528, compared to Minnesota's bullpen ERA of 5.86 & WHIP of 1.585. I really see a starting pitching advantage here, & clearly Detroit likes to face left-handed starters, & I like the price with the Tigers at home tonight.

Andre Gomes

HOU +8.5 vs LAL

If there is one game that the Rockets may steal it on the road this is 'the game'. The Lakers are happy to face the Rockets in the second round as they avoided the Blazers and with a 4-0 mark in the regular season the public expect a huge blown out for the Lakers.

However I don't think in the same way. In fact I feel that the Lakers aren't prepared for this game as the Rockets will bring the toughness and aggressiveness that the Jazz didn't present vs. Lakers in the first round. It was too easy for the Lakers that they blew some huge leads during the games, they didn't play hard on the defensive end and they didn't keep the level during the 48 minutes?.but still they ease past the Jazz! Note that the real game that the Jazz showed some toughness, the Lakers ended losing the game!

The Rockets hold the young Blazers to 83, 88, 88 and 76 points in the last 4 games and I remember that Portland was one of the most effective offensive teams during the regular season. It's a fact that the Lakers swept the Rockets 4-0 in the regular season but we can't forget some details: Shane Battier didn't play in one of the losses and Ron Artest misses another. Also McGrady played in the first but shot just 1-11 from the field for three and if we discount the first game (rout win) the Lakers beat Houston by an average of 7.7 points a game!

The Lakers are naturally the best team but the Rockets have some weapons that can make some damage to them. Aaron Brooks is coming from a huge series vs. Portland and he quicker than Derek Fisher. Yao Ming will matchup against the struggling Andrew Bynum and we must not forget the duo Artest/Battier that will try to limit Kobe Bryant. The Rockets can make a surprise tonight like they did in Portland in game 1, this game will be more close than most people think and I'm taking them tonight

TEXAS vs. SEATTLE

Felix Hernandez is off to the best start of his five-year career coming off a perfect April, the right-hander looks for his fifth win when the Seattle Mariners open a two-game home series with the Rangers tonight. Hernandez (4-0, 2.38 ERA) allowed four hits and struck out nine in eight scoreless innings of a 9-1 road win over the Chicago White Sox on Tuesday, and Hernandez's scoreless-innings streak reached 19. Although Hernandez has been exceptional this season, he has struggled agaist Texas going 4-8 with a 4.38 ERA in 16 starts. He also went 0-4 with a 4.04 ERA in six starts last season, walking 20 in 35 2-3 innings. The AL West-leading Mariners (15-10) face Texas (12-12) for the first time this season as Texas is looking for its third straight victory after winning 5-1 over the White Sox on Sunday night. For Texas, Miachael Young had two hits to extend his hitting streak to seven games for the Rangers. Young is hitting .387 (12-for-31) during his run and .308 (12-for-39) versus Hernandez.While Hernandez has struggled of late against Texas, Kevin Millwood (2-2, 2.13) hasn't fared well in recent outings versus Seattle.Millwood is 7-9 with a 4.72 ERA in 18 career starts against the Mariners, but 0-5 with a 6.07 ERA since Julyy 23, 2007. For Texas, Suzuki is batting .431 (25-for-58) with seven RBIs against Millwood. Both of these pitchers has struggled against their opponents today. There is no way both these pitchers will keep the bats quiet and under 8 runs.

TAKE TEXAS/SEATTLE OVER 8

Dave Price

1 Unit on Cincinnati Reds +145

The Reds are showing a lot or value at this price tonight when you consider that they are 9-4 on the road this season and that the Fish have lost 3 in a row and 10 of their last 13. Cincy comes in having won 3 of its last 4, with all 3 of those wins being shutouts. The pitching staff is really coming together and the Reds are in good hands with Harang tonight who is 14-6 against the money line as a road underdog of +100 to +150 over the last 2 seasons. Believe it or not, the Reds have owned the Marlins, winning 10 of the last 15 over the last 3 seasons. Bet Cincy here.

Jeff Alexander

1 Unit on St. Louis Cardinals -129

St. Louis is on fire and I'll back the Red Birds at home tonight with an extra day's rest and a huge advantage in the starting pitching department. Lohse is 3-0 with a 1.97 ERA while Blanton is 0-2 with an ERA of 8.41. The Cardinals are 11-0 in their last 11 games as a home favorite of -110 to -150, 5-0 in Lohse's last 5 home starts, and 8-0 in Lohse's last 8 starts after scoring 2 runs or less in their previous game. Bet the Cards.

3Daily Winners

Chicago White Sox vs. Kansas City Royals
Play: Kansas City Royals     

PLAY ON all favorites with a money line of -175 to -250 like Kansas City, stranding 6.9 or less runners on base per game on the season, in May games. Over the last four seasons this system rings up winners 89.6 percent of the time at 43-5.----Yesterday's 2-0 record gets us back on the beam and we have bsseball contest that comes in easy on a Monday with huge run line potential. We'll just call for a massacre, supported by angles that are 14-4 and 27-10 for a winner.
