Detroit Tigers over Kansas City Royals at +145

Nobody can like going against Zack Greinke the way he's pitched this year, but I see value here with the Tigers who are throwing Edwin Jackson, a guy who has given up just 4 runs in his last 22 innings and only 4 ER in 27 innings on the road this year.  The Royals have lost five of their last six games while Detroit has won eight of their last 10.  Kansas City is scoring just 2.6 runs per gae over their last 7 and 4 runs per game against right-handed starters.  Detroit is scoring 5.5 runs per game against right-handers so with two solid arms on the hill tonight, take the better offense at the underdog price

Houston Astros vs. Cincinnati Reds    
Play: Cincinnati Reds 

We will buck the Oswalt monster trend, and go with how he has done recently. A mid 4 era versus a good hitting Reds team that will suprise some teams this seaon. We will ride the 2 game win streak of Cincy and fade the 5 straight losers coming out of Houston.

San Diego Padres at Arizona Diamondbacks
Prediction: San Diego Padres

The Padres have won 10 straight games, yet find themselves as a significant underdog tonight in Arizona. Why? Because of D'backs starter Max Scherzer's one career victory. Sick of hearing about this guy's potential. We fell for it last year, but Scherzer has an ERA of 6.75 in three home start this season. Arizona is just 6-12 in the home favorite role, meaning that the red hot visitors are impossible not to back at this price. Take San Diego.

1 Unit on Chicago White Sox +173

The White Sox crushed LA 17-3 Monday and I'll back the more talented offensive team again tonight. There's no question the Angels send the better starter to the hill, but he does not deserve this much respect from odds makers against a team that has owned the Halos. The White Sox are 4-1 in the last 5 meetings and 13-4 in the last 17 meetings in Los Angeles. I expect the former AL Cy Young Award winner Colon to have one of his best starts of the season tonight against his former mates. Bet the Sox showing great value.

1 Unit on Houston Astros -128

The Reds picked up a win over Houston yesterday, but it was just their 3rd home win over Houston in 19 games over the last 3 seasons. Astros ace Roy Oswalt takes the hill tonight and I'll back him here as he is an incredible 22-1 when starting against Cincy with an ERA of 2.42 and a WHIP of 1.102 in his career. The Astros bats are nothing to write home about, but they should have the edge against Owings today, who enters with an ERA of 5.16 in his starts this season. The Astros are 10-1 in Oswalt's last 11 road starts vs. the Reds and I expect to see this dominant trend continue tonight.

Florida +135 at PHILADELPHIA

Great spot to grab some of the plus money, as the Marlins visit the Phillies Tuesday night. Fish have won two straight, and appear to be getting their feet back underneath them after a prolonged period of inconsistency. The Phillies meanwhile continue to be dynamite on the road, but the same cannot be said of their play at Citizens Bank Park, where they're just 8-13 and a number of their players have struggled thus far there this season. Yesterday's 5-3 loss was a perfect example, as the Phillies managed only 6 hits and if not for a couple Howard dingers would've done nothing in that contest.

It doesn't get any easier tonight, as Andrew Miller finally delivered the start manager Fredi Gonzalez and Marlins-faithful were waiting for, allowing 2 runs over 7 innings, while striking out 9 against the Diamondbacks last Thursday! I've said time and again, that the young southpaw has plenty of upside, and I'm banking on the fact he'll build off that excellent effort tonight. Note, he's 0-1 with a 4.35 ERA in 7 career games (3 starts) against Philadelphia.

Opposing Miller is the Phillies Joe Blanton, who quite frankly has been a disaster this season, and especially at home. His already ugly 7.11 ERA on the season baloons to an 8.87 ERA (with an 0-2 record) at Citizens Bank Park... So much like his teammates, he's been garbage at home. And the fact he's posted a 5.40 ERA against the Marlins in 2 career starts is nothing to write home about.

Bottom line, way too much value to look any other way here. The Phillies have been incredibly inconsistent at home, and with the Marlins showing signs of improvement (incl. Adrew Miller), the play here rest squarely on the Fish.

Take Florida behind Miller over Philadelphia and Blanton in this MLB match up.

2♦ FLORIDA

Chris Jordan

Tampa Bay at CLEVELAND +110 

Cleveland has the worst team in the American League. Tampa Bay is the defending AL champion. Yet with a 10-0 lead, the Rays squandered it and lost 11-10. And so the losing streak continues. Tampa has lost 14 straight in Cleveland, and with Carl Pavano and Matt Garza meeting for a second time in 11 days, I’m going to take the underdog here, as Pavano will be looking for revenge.

The veteran right-hander has won four of his last five starts and comes in after allowing three runs and six hits in six innings of an 8-3 victory over Kansas City this past Thursday. And prior to beating the Tribe and Pavano, Garza had been 0-3 with a 6.12 ERA in his previous five starts against the Indians. I’ll side with history and think the Tribe will carry the momentum over from last night’s dramatic comeback win.

1♦ INDIANS
