Matt Fargo

Atlanta Braves vs. Arizona D-Backs     
Play: Atlanta Braves   

The Braves were swept in San Francisco to start the week but they are still a game over .500 on the road this season so there is a great opportunity to catch some value in a bounce back situation. Atlanta had won 12 of its previous 17 prior to its series with the Giants but the offense was unable to get anything going. The Braves faced two left-handed starters and could not produce and they also had to encounter Tim Lincecum. Arizona dropped its home series with the Padres as the bats came alive but the pitching once again letdown as it allowed 22 runs in that three-game set. The Diamondbacks have a team ERA of 5.12 over their last 10 games while allowing 5.9 rpg over that stretch. They hope Dan Haren can help get out of the rut but he is coming off his worst outing of the season after tossing eight straight quality outings to begin the year. Some could point to this being a bounce back spot for him and while that could be the case, he has struggled at home to pick up wins. His ERA at home is a solid 2.00 in five starts but Arizona is just 2-3 in those games as it has given him only 2.2 rpg of offensive support. Haren faced the Braves once last season and was hammered for six runs on 10 hits in just 5.1 innings. The Braves counter with Derek Lowe and he is once again pitching well after a hiccup four starts ago. He has tossed six quality outings in his last seven starts, allowing only two earned runs in five of those games. He knows the Diamondbacks very well from his days in Los Angeles and in his last six starts against them, he has posted a 1.91 ERA and this season, the offense of Arizona is even worse. The Diamondbacks are 3-13 in their last 16 games as a home favorite of -110 to -150 while the Braves are 5-2 in their last 7 games as an underdog. 3* Atlanta Braves

Tom Freese

Atlanta Braves at Arizona Diamondbacks
Prediction: Under

Atlanta is 19-7-1 UNDER after allowing 5 or more runs in their last game and they are 48-23-2 their last 73 road games vs. righty starters. The Braves are 21-10 UNDER vs. a pitcher who has a WHIP of less than 1.15. Starting pitcher Derek Lowe has allowed 4 or less runs in 8 of his 10 starts this year. Arizona starter Dan Haren has a better than 5 to 1 strikeout to walk ratio in his last 3 starts. The Diamondbacks are 9-3-2 UNDER in Game 1 of a series and they are 4-1 UNDER in Haren's last 5 home starts. PLAY ON 'UNDER' (Haren vs. Lowe)

1 Unit on Chicago Cubs -119

I'll back the Cubs at home tonight as they have some added motivation to win after being knocked out of the postseason by the Dodgers last fall. The Cubs generally smack lefties around the yard. They are 4-1 in their last 5 games vs. a left-handed starter and 35-16 in their last 51 home games vs. a left-handed starter. They should have Wolf's number tonight, who is just 3-7 with a 4.71 ERA in 15 games against the Cubs. The Cubs have momentum on their side again off back-to-back wins and Cubs rookie Randy Wells figures to be tough on the Dodgers without them yet to see him. He enters this game with an ERA of 0.00 at home in 1 start and an ERA of 1.50 in 3 starts this season. The Cubs are 11-1 against the money line in home games vs. teams outscoring opponents by 1 or more runs/game on the season over the last 2 seasons and 24-6 against the money line in home games in May over the last 2 seasons. Back the Cubbies.

Take Over 94.5 for the First Half between the Orlando Magic @ Cleveland Cavaliers

We have seen this occur before between these two teams as the pace in Cleveland is one that is more lively than in Orlando - plus, it is more lively than the second half when defense is likely to take more of a precedence. With all the emotion going on for Cleveland in this game being down 3-1, I expect them to come out with a lot of firepower and in the same token, I don't expect the Magic to simply lay down here as they are likely to keep pace. I look for the first half to be relatively high scoring and the early total to be pushed over. A 50-45 half gets the first half over and despite who takes the side, with emotions riding high in the first portion of this game, the total likely goes a bit over.

Los Angeles Dodgers vs. Chicago Cubs    
Play: Los Angeles Dodgers

Ai Simulator 3* graded play on the Dodgers as they face the Cubs slated to start at 8:00. Supporting this graded play is a system that has gone 33-14 for 70% winners and has made 21 units since 2003. Play on all teams when the money line is +125 to -125 and is a good hitting team batting >=.275 facing an excellent NL starting pitcher sporting an ERA <=2.70. Dodgers are 15-5 (+10.1 Units) against the money line versus poor fielding teams that are turning 0.8 or less DP's/game this season. And starter Wolf is a solid 19-7 (+12.8 Units) against the money line versus an NL team with an on base percentage .325 or worse over the last 2 seasons.

VEGAS EXPERTS

Atlanta Braves at Arizona Diamondbacks

Atlanta ace Derek Lowe has shut down the Diamondbacks in his last two starts against them as he has gone 14 scoreless innings, both team wins. He is pitching well again, in his last three starts he has a 2.45 ERA averaging over seven runs per ballgame. This is a revenge game for the Braves as the Diamondbacks shutout them out 12-0 just a few weeks ago in Atlanta. Arizona is just 7-12 SU this season as a home favorite. Go with Atlanta

Play on: Atlanta

Teddy Covers

LA Dodgers @ Chicago Cubs
Take Chicago -130

After a truly dismal 0-6 road trip and a ‘hangover’ loss in their first game back at Wrigley Field, the Chicago Cubs have righted the ship with back-2-back victories in the last two days. A team that was pressing and struggling is now considerably more confident and relaxed, as clearly evidenced by Lou Pinella’s joking to the media after Carlos Zambrano got thrown out of the game last night.

Since their 4-4 start, the Cubs are 10-4 in their last 14 at Wrigley, a team built to dominate on their home field. Don’t be fooled for a moment by Chicago ’s position in fourth place in the NL Central. This team remains one of the ‘class’ teams in the NL, and we’re not likely to find a better ‘buy low’ scenario on the Cubs than the one we’re looking at today.

Rookie righty Randy Wells has been nothing short of outstanding in replacement of the injured Rich Harden. In his first three big league starts, Wells has allowed only 14 hits and 3 runs while striking out 16. In his last outing, he needed only 95 pitches to get through seven full innings against the red hot Padres. Wells has a strong ’buy’ sign on him right now.

Let’s not forget how the Dodgers embarrassed the Cubs in the playoffs last October, winning the first two games right here at Wrigley – this is one of those rare regular season games that actually has some real meaning for the home team. LA starter Randy Wolf has come back to earth after a red hot start. In three starts against the Cubs last year, Wolf lost twice, with an ERA of 6.32. As a team, the Cubs hit .323 against him.

Chicago hits lefties better than righties at home and has hit 38 points higher against southpaws in their last ten games. Put it all together and we can expect the Dodgers to come back to earth in a hurry tonight following their three game sweep in Colorado .

Take the Cubs.

Drew Gordon

Detroit at BALTIMORE -140 

Let me start this analysis by saying: I know its never easy to lay this kind of money on a pitcher making his Major League debut, but rest-assured, this is the right move in this contest and here's why:

Before we discuss David Hernandez, let's talk about Armando Galarraga. The Tigers righty has been an absolute disaster this month, going 0-4 with a mind-boggling 9.93 ERA! He's only one month removed from opening the season 3-0 with a 1.85 ERA, which is why so many bettors are salivating at the chance to back him at plus money... DO NOT make the mistake of living in the past, as Galarraga is pitching nowhere near the level he was in April, plain and simple.

On the flip side, while Hernandez is making his debut, let's not simply dismiss him because of it. He was rock-solid in Triple-A Norfolk, where he went 2-1 with 2.91 ERA in 8 starts. His last start saw him strike out 14 batters (led his league in K's), and you better believe that's a big reason he's getting his shot tonight. But that's only part of the reason I like the O's here.

Finally, the biggest factor in my siding with Baltimore has been their red-hot hitting of late, backed by some young guns who have hit the ground running, including Nolan Reimold. Not to mention, one of the O's biggest names makes his Debut tonight in catcher Matt Wieters, who many people consider the best prospect in baseball. Couple them with Markakis, Jones, and Scott and all of a sudden you can see why Galarraga is in SO much trouble tonight.

Small play on Baltimore behind Hernandez over Detroit and Galarraga in this MLB match up.

1&#9830; BALTIMORE
