EASTERN CONFERENCE

(1) Cleveland (9-2 SU, 8-3 ATS) at (3) Orlando (10-6 SU, 8-8 ATS)

The Magic, looking to take full command of the Eastern Conference finals, host the suddenly struggling Cavaliers in Game 4 at Amway Arena.

Orlando kept Cleveland at arm’s length much of the night Sunday en route to a 99-89 Game 3 victory as a 1½-point home chalk, taking a 2-1 lead in this series and moving to 3-0 ATS. Dwight Howard put up 24 points and grabbed nine rebounds, and four of his teammates reached double figures in scoring, with Rafer Alston netting 18 and Hedo Turkoglu notching 13 points, 10 rebounds and seven assists.

LeBron James led the Cavs with 41 points in Game 3, and he also had nine assists and seven rebounds, but only two others reached double digits – Mo Williams (15 points) and Delonte West (12). In a game featuring 86 free throws, Cleveland got killed at the charity stripe, making 26 of 35 while Orlando hit 39 of 51. In their playoff sweeps of Detroit and Atlanta in the first two rounds, the Cavaliers were giving up just 78.1 points per game, but they’re allowing 100.3 ppg to Orlando.

The Magic are on a 13-1 ATS tear in this rivalry, including cashing in six of the last seven meetings in Orlando. This year, Orlando is 4-2 SU and 6-0 ATS against the Cavaliers. Also, the underdog is 10-4 ATS in the last 14 clashes.

Cleveland is 31-15 SU (25-21 ATS) on the road this year, including 4-1 SU (3-2 ATS) in the playoffs. Orlando is 37-11 SU (27-21 ATS) at home, including 5-2 SU (4-3 ATS) in the postseason.

The Magic are on ATS upswings of 9-3 overall (5-0 in their last five), 8-1 against the Central Division, 6-2 after a spread-cover and 6-2 following a SU win, and as an underdog, they are on ATS rolls of 6-2 in playoff action and 36-15-1 overall.

The Cavaliers are 32-5 SU in their last 37 starts and remain on several positive ATS runs, including 11-4 overall, 10-3 as a chalk, 40-21 after a non-cover and 5-2 on the road. However, Mike Brown’s troops are just 6-16 ATS in their last 22 starts against Southeast Division squads.

The under for Orlando is on rolls of 23-10 overall, 27-11 at home (5-1 in the last six) and 16-6 against teams with a winning percentage above .600. The under for Cleveland is on stretches of 7-3 overall, 5-0 on the highway and 4-0 with the Cavs a road chalk, but the over is 5-1 in the Cavs’ last six conference finals games.

Finally, in this rivalry, the total has stayed low in five of the last seven meetings in Orlando, including Game 3, which ended just a tick below the 189-point posted price.

ATS ADVANTAGE: ORLANDO


NATIONAL LEAGUE

St. Louis (26-18) at Milwaukee (26-18)

The Cardinals kick off a six-game road trip at Miller Park where they will send Chris Carpenter (2-0, 0.00 ERA) to the mound to face the Brewers’ Yovani Gallardo (4-2, 3.83 ERA).

St. Louis had its five-game winning streak snapped on Sunday when the Royals got the 3-2 victory to salvage one game of the interleague series. The Cardinals are just 9-9 on the road this year and will head west to visit the Giants for a three-game series after their stop in Milwaukee. Meanwhile, the Brewers were swept by the Twins over the weekend, ending a nine-game road trip that started with four straight wins, including three in St. Louis.

Milwaukee has dominated the Cardinals lately, winning 13 of the last 16 meetings, including four of the last five at Miller Park.

Carpenter made his first start in more than a month on Wednesday and didn’t allow a run and only three hits in five innings of a 2-1 win over the Cubs. It was just his sixth start in more than two years of battling injuries. His last two starts against the Brewers haven’t gone so well, but they were way back in the 2005 and 2006 seasons, allowing 13 runs on 19 hits in 11 1/3 innings, losing both games.

Milwaukee has won four of Gallardo’s last five outings, but his last one wasn’t pretty, as the right-hander gave up six runs on seven hits in five innings of Wednesday’s 6-4 loss in Houston. Prior to that he’d held the opposition to three runs or less in six of his first seven starts of 2009. He faced the Cardinals twice in the 2007 season and lost both times, allowing a combined 11 runs on 13 hits in 10 2/3 innings.

St. Louis is 10-4 in its last 14 series openers, but it is just 2-5 in its last seven on the road and 2-5 in its last seven Monday contests. With Carpenter on the mound, the Cardinals are on runs of76-29 overall, 35-16 on the road and 37-15 against N.L. Central teams. Despite getting swept by the Twins over the weekend, Milwaukee is on runs of 22-9 overall, 6-1 at home, 5-0 at home against right-handed starters, 40-19 as a favorite and 36-17 against N.L. Central teams.

The Cardinals are on “under” runs of 6-0 overall, 4-0 in series openers and 7-2 against N.L. Central teams, but the over is 9-2 in Carpenter’s last 11 roadies and 28-12-3 in their last 43 on the highway against right-handed starters. Milwaukee is on “under” streaks of 8-3 at home, 7-2 as a home favorite and 12-5 in Gallardo’s last 17 starts, but the over is 5-0 in the Brewers’ last five games on Monday and 9-3-1 in its last 13 when they face a right-handed starter.
 
ATS ADVANTAGE: MILWAUKEE


AMERICAN LEAGUE

N.Y. Yankees (25-19) at Texas (26-17)

The two hottest teams in the American League begin a three-game set today at Rangers Ballpark in Arlington when the Yankees send Phil Hughes (2-2, 7.06 ERA) to the mound opposite Texas southpaw Matt Harrison (4-3, 4.71).

New York lost two of three to the Phillies over the weekend, including a 4-3, 11-inning loss on Sunday, but has still won 10 of its last 12 overall and six of its last eight on the highway. Meanwhile, the Rangers swept their in-state rivals in Houston over the weekend when they blanked the Astros 5-0 on Sunday. Texas has won 16 of its last 21 games overall and eight straight in front of the home fans.

The Yankees hold decisive advantages when these two clubs square off, winning 21 of the last 28 clashes overall and 21 of the last 29 in Texas.

Hughes has been inconsistent this season, including going 1-1 with a 10.80 ERA in his last three starts, and he’s 1-1 with a 9.38 ERA in his two road outings. The Yankees scored home wins over Baltimore and Minnesota in Hughes’ last two starts, but in his last roadie, Hughes allowed eight runs on eight hits in just 1 2/3 innings of a 12-5 loss to the Orioles. In his lone career start against Texas, he blanked the Rangers without a hit for 6 1/3 innings of a 10-1 victory in Texas back in May 2007.

Harrison is 2-1 with a 2.74 ERA and 15 strikeouts against just three walks in his last three starts. He threw a complete game in his last home outing, allowing two runs on five hits in a 3-2 win over the Mariners. Harrison faced the Yankees in August last season and allowed two runs on five hits in 6 1/3 innings of an 8-6 Texas victory.

New York is 5-2 in Hughes’ last seven starts, but just 2-5 in his last seven on the road. The Yankees are on further streaks of 4-1 against A.L. West teams and 4-1 on the road against teams with winning records. Texas is just 1-5 when Harrison starts as a home favorite but the Rangers are 5-1 in his last six starts against A.L. East squads. Furthermore, the Rangers are on runs of 6-1 in series openers, 7-3 against winning teams and 11-3 when they face a right-hander.

For the Yankees, the under is on runs of 5-1 in series openers and 5-0 against teams with winning records, but the over is 13-6-1 in their last 20 as a ‘dog and 8-3-1 in their last 12 on Mondays. The Rangers have topped the total in 20 of their last 32 Monday games, but otherwise for Texas the “under” is on stretches of 21-8 overall, 8-3 at home, 7-3 in series openers and 5-0 in Harrison’s last five outings. However the over is 9-3 in Harrison’s last 12 starts at home.

ATS ADVANTAGE: N.Y. YANKEES

Re: Tuesday Service Plays

Matt Fargo

Boston Red Sox vs. Minnesota Twins    
Play: Minnesota Twins     

Boston took Game One of this series on Monday but still remains two games under .500 on the road yet is a surprising favorite here tonight. The Red Sox have dominated this series going back to last season with six straight wins but that should not be enough to make them a chalk especially when the starting pitching matchup is at a disadvantage. The loss Monday snapped Minnesota’s four-game winning streak as well as its six-game home winning streak. The Twins are now 17-10 at home which is the 2nd best home record in the American League. Home teams are now 31-15 in Minnesota’s 46 games on the season. The Twins send Nick Blackburn to the mound and he is having a very good but inconsistent season. Five of his nine starts this season have been quality outings including four of his last six games. He has tossed two seven-inning shutouts over his last three starts as he looks to be turning the corner following a not-so-great start to the season. The Red Sox are hitting only .241 on the season against right-handed pitching on the road. Boston counters with Jon Lester who is having a tough season. He has a 5.91 ERA and 1.61 WHIP in his first nine starts including a 6.93 ERA and 1.58 WHIP in four road outings. He has allowed five runs or more in five of his nine starts including three of his four games on the road. He faced the Twins twice last season, resulting in a split, and he put up a 5.68 ERA. Minnesota is hitting .290 on the season against left-handed pitching including .302 at home and .338 over its last 10 games. The Twins are 23-4 in their last 27 home games against a left-handed starter which is a remarkable run. Despite Boston’s recent series dominance, the Twins are 11-5 in the last 16 meetings at home and the Red sox are only 11-26 in their last 37 games on the fake stuff. This includes a 0-6 record with Lester toeing the rubber. 3* Minnesota Twins

Frank Jordan

Boston Red Sox vs. Minnesota Twins    
Play: Minnesota Twins     

Boston should be getting worried as Jonathan Papelbon has given up homeruns in back-to-back outings luckily Boston is 1-1 in those games and not 0-2. Boston is sending their stud left hander Jon Lester to the mound who hasn't had it much this year as he is 3-4 with an era near at 6. Minnesota looks to beat the first place Sox behind Nick Blackburn who is 3-2 with an era under 4. Look for Minnesota to get over the hump and win their 18th win against 10 loss as the under .500 on the road Sox drop to 10-13 on the road. Play Minnesota

New York Yankees vs. Texas Rangers    
Play: Texas Rangers 

The Rangers will be looking to rebound from a poor performance on Monday against this Yankees team; they suffered an 11 to 1 loss. The Rangers had their eight-game home winning streak snapped as they managed only four hits and were 0 for 8 with runners in scoring position. New York will send Joba Chamberlain to the bump with his 2-1 record and ERA of 3.70. Chamberlain was hit by a line drive off the bat of Baltimore's Adam Jones on Thursday in the first inning. The next two batters singled before the Yankees brought in relief, but the right-hander appears to be ok. He made two starts against Texas last season, going 0-0 with a 7.27 ERA. The Rangers will send Kevin Millwood to the hill with his 4-4 record and ERA of 3.12. Millwood went the distance in his last outing pitching a six-hitter in a 4 to 3 loss at Detroit; this was the second complete game loss Millwood has thrown this season. Millwood is 3-1 W/L (+1.8) at home this season with an ERA of 2.10 and a WHIP of 1.233. The Rangers are 20-8 W/L their last twenty-eight when Millwood takes the bump at home and 4-1 W/L when he is installed as a home underdog. Our TPR (Team Performance Ratings) Index projects a Rangers win in tonight’s contest by 1.1 runs over the Yankees. The Pitchers Efficiency Index predicts a quality start for Millwood in this matchup so play the host as they rebound from Monday’s performance and get the win over the boys from Gotham.

Graded Selection: 2* Texas Rangers 5 New York Yankees 4

Re: Tuesday Service Plays

Craig Trapp

Seattle Mariners vs. Oakland Athletics    
Play: Seattle Mariners   

Tearing the cover off the ball, Craig has been too hot in his 5 star MLB top plays daily going 12-4 the last two weeks. Yesterday Craig nailed his 5 star UNDERDOG of the Week as LAD won by double digits as a dog. Unfortunately did not hit our free MLB play as TB gave up a 10-0 lead late in the game. But today we will nail this free play, lets look at the records, trends and winning breakdown.

Records

Seattle Mariners 21-25, 9-13 away (Washburn 3-3, 3.86 ERA)

Oakland Athletics 17-25, 10-12 home (Braden 3-5, 3.67 ERA)

Betting Trends

-Mariners are 12-5 in their last 17 games vs. a left-handed starter.

-Mariners are 8-2 in the last 10 meetings.

-Athletics are 0-4 in their last 4 home games vs. a left-handed starter.

-Athletics are 0-8 in Bradens last 8 starts as a home favorite.

Neither one of these two are hot but love recent trends as Seattle has been good against left handers whereas the Athletics have struggled big time. Also SEATTLE is 5-2 on the year against OAKLAND and 3-1 in OAK. Washburn was good in his early appearance this month against OAK but did not get a win going 7 innings with only one earned run. On the other hand Braden historically is not good against SEA going 0-2 with a 8.07 ERA. Oakland's bats are the worst in almost every category in the league so love that we are on the +125 dog here. SCORE SEA 5 - OAK 2

Re: Tuesday Service Plays

LT Profits

Atlanta Braves @ San Francisco Giants

The reining Cy Young winner Tim Lincecum of the San Francisco Giants has dominated the Atlanta Braves throughout his brief career, and with Braves prospect Kris Medlen expected to improve off of his first outing, the Under deserves a long look here.

Lincecum is in fine form as usual, as he has six Quality Starts in his last seven outings and he now has a spectacular 76 strikeouts in 57.1 innings for the season, to go along with a 3.45 ERA. He has faced the Braves four times since entering the league two years ago, and he is a perfect four for four in Quality Starts while allowing only eight runs and 19 hits with 27 strikeouts in 26.2 innings.

Now Medlen had some natural jitters in his first Major League start last Thursday, but he actually looked good for three innings before he lost control in the fourth inning, when he failed to retire a batter. He ended up allowing only three hits, but five walks, a hit batter and two wild pitches did him in. He is certainly eligible to improve tonight vs. a Giants lineup that is batting a modest .254 while averaging just 3.83 runs per nine innings vs. right-handers this season.

Besides, if Lincecum is on top of his game vs. the Braves as he has always been, Medlen can afford to give up a couple of runs with this contest still staying Under the total.

Pick: Braves/Giants Under 8

When Roy Oswalt takes on Micah Owings and the Reds this evening he will do so knowing he is an eye-popping 23-5 in his MLB career team starts against Cincinnati, including 11-2 in the Queen City. With Micah Owings having dropped 11 of his last 15 team starts, we'll look for Oswalt to continue his mastery over the Reds here tonight.

Re: Tuesday Service Plays

Jeff Benton

St. Louis at MILWAUKEE +110

An absolutely BRUTAL loss with Monday’s free pick on the Diamondbacks, who blew a 7-0 lead to the Padres and lost 9-7 in 10 innings. Talk about being on the right side and getting the wrong result. We’ll get back on track Tuesday, though, by taking the Brewers over the Cardinals.

I sort of understand why the Cardinals are a slight road favorite in this one, because they’ve got the perceived pitching advantage with Adam Wainwright against Jeff Suppan. However, it was just 10 days ago that these two right-handers squared off in St. Louis and Suppan got the better of it in a 1-0 victory. The Brewers’ veteran pitched seven scoreless innings to one-up Wainwright, who gave up just the one run and two hits in eight innings.

Also, with yesterday’s identical 1-0 Brewers home victory over the Cardinals in 10 innings, Milwaukee is now 14-3 in the last 17 meetings in this rivalry, including 5-1 in the last six battles in Wisconsin. Think that’s impressive? Get a load of what Suppan has done to St. Louis in recent years. He’s given up three earned runs or fewer in eight consecutive starts versus the Cardinals – including two when he was with Pittsburgh in 2003 – and Suppan’s teams won all eight games. That includes six straight Milwaukee wins with Suppan facing the Redbirds since the start of the 2007 campaign!

In his last seven outings against St. Louis, Suppan has given up just eight runs in 53 1/3 innings (1.35 ERA). That includes allowing one run in each of three starts at Miller Park (1.50 ERA), with the Brewers winning those games by scores of 5-3, 9-1 and 7-1.

Finally, check out what Milwaukee has been doing lately: 23-9 in its last 32 overall, 12-3 in its last 15 at home, 37-17 in its last 54 against divisional rivals, 12-4 in its last 16 against right-handed starters and 6-1 in Suppan’s last seven trips to the mound. Easy call here, folks. Take the plus money with the Brew Crew.

Re: Tuesday Service Plays

Bobby Maxwell

N.Y. Yankees at TEXAS +110 

Today's FREE winner comes from Texas as we play the Rangers at home hosting the Yankees.

Tough loss for the Rangers on Monday when they opened this three-game set with the Yankees by losing 11-1. But they've got the right guy on the hill tonight to help them forget that one as Kerry Millwood (4-4, 3.12 ERA) goes for Texas against New York's Joba Chamberlain (2-1, 3.70 ERA).

Millwood is 3-1 at home this season with a 2.10 ERA and last time he was on the home mound, he held the Angels to two runs in six innings as the Rangers won 10-8. He's had good success against the Yankees, including last year when he held them to one run on five hits in five innings of a 3-2 win in July. In his last three against the Yanks, he's allowed five earned runs in 18 innings as the Rangers have won two of the three.

Meanwhile, Chamberlain saw the Rangers twice last season and lost both games, giving up five runs on eight hits in 4.2 innings of a 9-5 loss in Texas in August and losing 3-2 to Texas in New York in July.

Even with Monday's loss, the Rangers are 8-1 in their last nine at home and they are 19-7 in their last 26 Tuesday contests. They just had a great road trip and we're banking on exhaustion causing them not to show up Monday. Now they've had time to recover and they'll be ready to go tonight.

Go ahead and play Millwood and the Rangers to get this one.

Pitching all those innings last year AND throwing the in World Baseball Classic in March has taken a toll on Houston ace Roy Oswalt (1-2, 4.47 ERA). He may be 23-1 lifetime against the Reds, but that will mean nothing for this game. Most important, Oswalt has a 4.91 ERA his last three starts. Houston is in last place and takes on a Cincy team that just won 3 of 5 at home and is within 3 games of first place. A good spot for the home dog. Play the Reds.

LOS ANGELES DODGERS / COLORADO ROCKIES
Take LOS ANGELES DODGERS

I'm not convinced that Eric Milton is the answer at the back of the LA rotation, but I'll give the lefty a good shot to pick up a win tonight. The Dodgers are obviously the far superior team and the Rox aren't very good against lefties. I can't see the price being justified here with Colorado being chalk, so I'll go for the value and back the Dodgers.

Seattle at Oakland
Play: Over 8

Washburn has an ERA of 5.50 in his last 3 starts and Braden's ERA is 6.00 over that span. There have been 7 overs, 3 unders and a push in the last 11 meetings and the A's have 9 overs and 3 unders in their last 12 overall games. Look for the over to profit on Tuesday night!

ALEX SMART

Pittsburgh Penguins @ Carolina Hurricanes
PICK: Pittsburgh Penguins

The Hurricanes have to come up with a huge effort to dump the one minded surging Penguins Something I doubt they will do considering the Pittsburgh team they face looks very much to be a Stanley Cup front runner. I know that only twice in 145 series has an NHL team come back from a 0-3 playoff deficit to win the series 4-3. The last team to lose a series having led 3-0 is their series opponents Pittsburgh way back in the mid 70's to a NY Isles team that that later in that decade went on to win 4 straight cups.

Pittsburgh are surging at the moment thanks mainly to the Pens' two young guns , Sidney Crosby and Evgeni Malkin. The super star duo have combined for an impressive 14 points and eight of their team’s 16 goals.

Pittsburgh's underrated defense has come up huge as well, as is evidenced by limiting Canes stalwarts Staal, Whitney and Cole to a combined five assists in the first three tilts .

It's clear Pittsburgh can smell blood in the water and will be primed to end their opponents misery, and extend on their own euphoria by advancing to the Stanley cup final and exacting some revenge on their opponents from last year the Detroit Red Wings.

Despite Cam Wards early post-season heroics, Pittsburgh have found a weakness high on his glove hand side and will continue to pepper the Canes goaltender throughout this fourth game, just as they have done over the first three games. Im betting they bury the biscuit multiple times.

Teams with a 3-0 advantage have swept their opponents in 96 of those 145 series. Thats a 66% strike rate and that makes Pittsburgh a -140 fav on those stats alone. Given that Vegas has priced them as -120 chalk, there is certainly value in that price which makes recommending a Pittsburgh win a viable wagering option.

Play on the Pittsburgh Penguins

Nick Parsons

Chicago White Sox @ LA Angels
Play Under 8.5

Los Angeles will try to bounce back behind Joe Saunders (6-2, 3.17), who is trying to string together consecutive solid outings. The left-hander scattered four hits over seven innings of a 3-0 win over Seattle on Thursday. Saunders had given up seven runs in his previous start after throwing a six-hit shutout against Kansas City on May 9. Saunders is 2-1 with a 3.96 ERA against the White Sox, beating them twice last year while yielding three runs in 15 2-3 innings in two starts. The White Sox have seen the total go under the posted number in 4 of their last 6 games as a road dog of +150 to +175; play on the UNDER!

NY Yankees -120 at TEXAS 

We are on an 8-3 comp play run the last 11 days!

Tonight we will back the New York Yankees to make it 2 in a row over Texas.

New York broke out the lumber in yesterday's 11-1 win over Texas, and we see no reason they won't plate a few more runs in this game.

The Yankees have won 11 of their last 13 games, and it is clear that having Alex Rodriguez in the lineup has spiked the New York offense. A-Rod went 5-for-5 yesterday, and we expect him to rap out a few more hits in this one.

It will be Joba Chamberlain, and Kevin Millwood on the hill, and Millwood is coming off a 4-run, 8-inning loss at Detroit his last time out. We doubt he will be able to go through this lineup more than once without getting scuffed up.

The Rangers have been playing hot ball, but at this price, we must back the cheap road favorite, as the Yankees make it 12 of 14 in the win column.

Play on New York.

4♦ NY YANKEES

Take the Under 188 between the Cleveland Cavaliers vs. Orlando Magic

I have a play on the side in this contest, but I like a total here as well. Bear in mind that this is a must win for the Cavs. The Cavs are down 2-1 and to be frank, they have been a bit outplayed in this series. I do feel like they show up in this contest for most of the game and consequently will likely push this game Under. The Cavs are an under team by nature, but with the Magic being competitive on the road has the pushed the total over consequently. But, in Orlando, it is a bit different as the Cavs remain competitive and they play their style of pace and offense. Thus, this pushes games under which was the case in Game 3 despite the Magic winning. Bear in mind, that although the Magic won the Cavs dictated pace. The Cavs can only win if they play one type of pace while the Magic can win both in an offensive shootout or a defensive lockdown. Although I have a play on the side in this game, as per this total I lean on the Under as I feel that this game is likely to go Under similar to game 3 in a very hard fought Game 4 which we are likely to see play out tonight.
