Re: Free Picks: Service Plays for Tuesday, June 10

DAVE COKIN

ATLANTA BRAVES AT COLORADO ROCKIES
PLAY: ATLANTA BRAVES -125

There’s no question which side of this game will be the darling of the so-called squares. The Braves are going to get the big majority of the tickets tonight as they continue their series with the Rockies. I want to expand on this for a moment.

There is some merit in fading the squares once the NFL rolls around. It’s not the worst plan of attack in college football either. But as far as baseball is concerned, I rarely care one way or the other what the public is in love with.  There’s a pretty simple rationale in place here, which is that baseball is the easiest sport to beat and that’s not exclusive to pros only. If you don’t believe me, ask any Nevada bookmaker. These books want as much business as they can handle come football season, and that’s why they virtually all have these super promotions designed to get people into their place of business.

But once baseball season rolls around, it’s mostly the silent treatment from the books. One major outfit in Las Vegas is actually dealing a 30 cent line in baseball. The conclusion is obvious. They don’t really want heavy action in baseball and that’s one way to discourage it, particularly as far as serious bettors are concerned. Nobody is going to play that game once the NFL gets rolling, and it’s really as simple as that.

So long story short, if you’re one who plays according to what the market is doing, I wouldn’t simply dismiss a baseball side because the public is going to back it. This game between the Braves and Rockies is a nice example.

I’m not wild about the Braves. I don’t really like their lineup and the pitching staff won’t be what it could have been thanks to the pre-season injuries to Kris Medlen and Brandon Beachy. But the Braves are in much better shape than a Rockies team that is getting absolutely bludgeoned by the injury bug right now.

Everything is going wrong for the Rockies right now. They’re missing some important personnel currently residing on the DL and the guys still on the field aren’t exactly crushing the ball, even at the hitter’s heaven they call home. The pitching staff is falling apart at the seams, and it might have gotten even much worse yesterday with prized prospect Eddie Butler hitting the disabled list after exactly one major league start.

Mike Minor throws for the Braves tonight, and not only is he in excellent form, he’s also facing a Rockies lineup that doesn’t look its best against lefties. Juan Nicasio has not been sharp for Colorado, and he’s backed by a bullpen that has morphed from brilliant in April and part of May to an absolute train wreck lately.

Atlanta can be handled by good righties in particular, but I cannot plug Nicasio in that category at the present time. Most everything else points to the Braves here. Anything can happen in a one-game setting, but my first impulse is that the public will win their bets on the Braves tonight.

Chicago Cubs vs. Pittsburgh Pirates
Play: Pittsburgh Pirates -158

The Pirates for a nice system here that has won 10 of the last 12 times. We are playing on home favorites like the Pirates with a total that is 8 or less if they are a home favorites coming off a home favored win by 2 or more runs in a game where the total was 8 or less and they had 5 or more run and 10 or more hits. If the opponent, which is Chicago scored 2 or less runs on 5 or more hits. The Cubs lost here last night and are now 2-9 in Pittsburgh of late. The Pirates are scoring 5.6 runs the past week and have a nice pitching edge with Liriano who is 5-2 vs the Cubs with a 2.36 era. He will square off against T. Wood for Chicago who is sporting a dismal 8.04 road era this season. Look for the Pirates to take another from the Cubs here tonight.

Marc Lawrence

Atlanta Braves at Colorado Rockies
Prediction: Atlanta Braves

The Braves and Rockies meet at Coors Field in Game Two of this four-game series Tuesday evening where Mark Minor matches serves with Juan Nicasio. Minor takes the mound sporting a super-sharp 0.66 ERA away this season. He is also 4-1 in his career team starts in this series. With Nicasio in lousy current form and 0-4 in his last four starts during June, we recommend a 1-unit play on Atlanta.

Art Aronson

Chicago Cubs vs. Pittsburgh Pirates    
Play: Pittsburgh Pirates -155

The Bucs are 18-15 at PNC Park while the Cubs are just 10-22 on the road this season. Chicago will send lefty Travis Wood (5-5, 5.04 ERA) to the hill; Wood got a no-decision in allowing two runs over five innings in Thursday's 7-4 win over the Mets. Wood has been pretty mediocre after a solid campaign last season and has been especially bad on the road where he is 2-4 with a very ballooned 8.04 ERA. Pittsburgh will counter with Francisco Liriano (1-6, 4.54 ERA); Liriano fell to 1-6 on the season, allowing three runs (two earned) in five innings in Wednesday's loss to the Padres. Liriano, like Wood, has struggled this season after being one of the best last year. A date vs. the soft-hitting Cubbies is just what the doctor ordered to get untracked though, Liriano holds a career 2.36 ERA vs. Chicago and pitched fairly well in his most recent starts against it. I’ll give the slight nod to Liriano and that’s just enough to tip the scales in favor of the home side in this one.

Nick Parsons

LA Dodgers vs. Cincinnati
Pick: LA Dodgers

The Dodgers took Game 1 of this four-game set 6-2 yesterday and a favorable pitching match-up points to another victory this evening.

The visitors send Josh Beckett (3-3, 2.57 ERA) to the mound; Beckett would no-hit Philadelphia back on May 25th, but he’s winless since. Beckett though has been sharp in giving up four runs over his last 11 innings of work, unfortunate in getting backed by zero runs in that span.

Most recently Beckett gave up a pair of solo home runs with six K’s over six frames in a 2-1 loss to the White Sox on Wednesday.

Good news for Beckett, LA’s offense is firing on all cylinders now, ibatting .292 while averaging 5.8 runs and going 3-1 on this seven-game road trip.

Cincinnati is trending in the opposite direction, it’s posted a .190 average while dropping four of its last six.

The Reds send Mike Leake (3-5, 3.29 ERA) to the hill; Leake is coming off a brutal start in giving up five runs and eight hits over five innings in his team’s 6-1 loss to San Francisco on Thursday.

Leake has posted a pretty pedestrian 5.23 ERA in three home starts vs. the Dodgers.

Pretty good value here when considering the pitching and line-up mismatches.

Chase Diamond

Boston Red Sox vs. Baltimore Orioles    
Play: Boston Red Sox +107

This game features the 28-35 Boston at the 32-30 Orioles. I really love the Red Sox in this game they will be super motivated in this game as a loss to the Orioles will drop them further back in the A.L. East and time is running out. Brandon Workman has put up solid numbers in 3 starts and will be working hard to try and keep his spot in the rotation. Chris Tillman is 5-2 with a 5.20 ERA ans is lucky to be 5-2. The public is going super heavy on the Orioles around 74% yet this line has moved 7 cents the other way. We will follow the sharps and take the Red Sox here today.

Scott Spreitzer

Nationals / Giants Under 6.5

SFO pitching has done a nice job of bouncing right back after a rough outing.  Last night, the Giants lost 9-2 to the Nationals (Nats were our free pick).  They enter Tuesday on a 33-16-2 Under run after allowing at least five runs in their previous game.  Madison Bumgarner has allowed 4 runs or less in all 13 starts this season, including 3 runs or less in 10 of his outings.  Bumgarner owns a 2.81 ERA in five starts against the Nats since the start of the 2011 season...just the team to face to pick up his second straight strong start at AT&T.  The Nats counter with Doug Fister who owns a 0.98 WHIP in six starts this season.  The right-hander is finding the National League to his liking and we believe he's in for another strong effort tonight.  We're recommending a play on the Under between the Nats & Giants on Tuesday.

Jesse Schule

Chicago Cubs at Pittsburgh Pirates
Pick: Chicago Cubs

The Bucs have lost back-to-back home games to the Brewers, getting blown out on Saturday by a score of 9-3, and then getting shutout on Sunday in a 1-0 pitcher's duel. Taking on the Cubs in the opener of a new series at home, might be just what they need to get back on track. Edwin Jackson will toe the slab for the visitors, and he hasn't missed many bats this season. Jackson (4-5, 4.59 ERA) allowed four runs on five hits and five walks in five frames in a win over the Mets his last time out. His numbers on the road this year are of major concern, going 1-4 with a 6.12 ERA. The Pirates hand the ball to Charlie Morton, who has not been all that sharp either. Morton (2-7, 3.31 ERA) struck out a season high nine batters in his last start, but still only made it through five innings. He hasn't been that consistent, but he should prove to be better than Jackson, who has been consistently awful. Andrew McCutchen has owned Jackson, batting .435 with a home run over 24 career at bats.

Re: Free Picks: Service Plays for Tuesday, June 10

Jim Feist

Nationals at Giants
Pick: Under

The under is 16-5 in the Giants last 21 home games vs. a team with a winning record. Washington is in town with better pitching than offense, ranked 17th in runs scored and on base percentage and the under is 9-4 when the Giants face the National League East. At least Washington has a good starter going in Doug Fister (4-1, 3.19 ERA) and the under is 5-1-2 in the Nationals last eight road games. Fister allowed two runs on four hits in Thursday's victory over Philadelphia, 4-2. He struck out five without a walk. He's delivered five consecutive strong outings, during which he has a 26-2 strikeout to walk ratio and hasn't allowed more than two runs in a game. The under is 31-15-1 in the Giants last 47 vs. a team with a winning record. San Francisco has ace Madison Bumgarner going with an 8-3 record and a 2.68 ERA. Bumgarner dominated the Reds on Thursday, allowing just a run on three hits in eight innings while striking out five. Bumgarner's now allowed one or zero runs in five of his last seven starts -- with a 6-0 record in that span. When these teams meet the under is 4-1-1 in the last six meetings, so look for more defense and great pitching than offense.

Re: Free Picks: Service Plays for Tuesday, June 10

Bryan Leonard

Oakland at LA Angels
Play: Oakland -105

Drew Pomeranz and Hector Santiago will take the mound for Tuesday night's middle game between the A's and Angels. Pomeranz has allowed two runs or less in five of his six starts on the season. He's also striking out a better per inning as a starter. The lefty has been able to use the depth in his arsenal to hold opposing batters to a .208/.280/.336 slash line on the season.

The Angels entered play on Monday with a 15-19 mark against teams .500 or better and 19-9 against bottom feeders. Against teams .500 or better, the Angels have batted just .243/.312/.404 as a team compared to .271/.338/.434 against bad teams.

While we expect Pomeranz to pitch well, we can't say the same about Hector Santiago. Santiago was sent to Triple-A to work on his control and he wound up posting a 9/7 K/BB ratio in 14 innings against minor league hitters. This is on the heels of a 1.47 WHIP at the Major League level this season. As we all know, nobody works pitchers like the Athletics do and Santiago probably won't last long in this game. He has thrown a first-pitch strike to less than 48 percent of batters this season. A 1-0 count as opposed to an 0-1 count had led to a difference of nearly 300 OPS points for A's hitters this season.
There's no reason for Santiago to be favored or even close to it against a decent team, let alone one of the league's best teams.

Dennis Macklin

Detroit Tigers vs. Chicago White Sox    
Play: Chicago White Sox +122

We're going to take a shot with the suddenly white hot John Danks as a very live home dog over the currently VERY hittable Justin Verlander and the struggling Tigers. The Pale Hose southpaw was pitching his was out of the majors through six starts but has suddenly found the groove and rocks a razor thin 1.19 ERA over his last three starts. He is 5-10 LT vs Detroit but beat Motown 3-1 in April before going on this current tear. Justin Verlander is a very ordinary 1-3 with a 7.96 ERA over his last four starts and the Tigers are just 2-8 in their L10 roadies. Getting 25 cents at home with the best of the numbers looks like the right way to go.

Re: Free Picks: Service Plays for Tuesday, June 10

Larry Ness

Detroit vs. Chicago
Pick: Detroit

The White Sox will send Chris Sale in Wednesday's finale, so the Tigers had better get a win here behind Justin Veralnder...

The Tigers weren't sure that Miguel Cabrera would be able to play last night, after he exited in the sixth inning of Sunday's 5-3 loss to Boston due to a hamstring problem. However, he was back in the lineup on Monday (albeit as the designated hitter), going 2 for 4 with his 12th HR of 2014. It wasn't enough though, as the Tigers lost 6-5.

The Tigers swept a three-game series from the Red Sox at Fenway from May 16-18, leaving Detroit an impressive 27-12. However, the Tigers are just 6-15 in their 21 games since, keeping everyone within striking distance in the AL Central. The 33-27 Tigers are in first but lead the Indians by a modest two games, with the Royals and the White Sox 3 1/2 back) and the Twins (five back) all hanging around.

The White Sox will send Chris Sale in Wednesday's finale, so the Tigers had better get a win here. John Danks is 4-5 with a 4.32 ERA in 12 starts in 2014 (Chicago is 4-8) and did win his most recent outing against the Tigers 3-1 on April 21, by allowing just one run in 6.1 innings. However, that ended a six-start stretch against Detroit in which he had gone 0-5 with an 8.74 ERA.

Detroit starter Justin Verlander owns an 'ugly' 6.75 ERA over his last five outings, losing for the third time in that span when he gave up six runs over seven innings Thursday in a 7-3 defeat to Toronto. Verlander started strong in 2014 but enters this contest just 6-5 with a 4.19 ERA in 13 starts (Detroit is 8-5). However, he is 13-3 with a 2.67 ERA in his last 17 starts against the White Sox, including 1-0 with a 3.21 ERA in two this year (Tigers are 2-0).

Brandon Shively

Washington Nationals vs. San Francisco Giants    
Play: Washington Nationals +128 

I like the Nationals in this game tonight as they go up against the southpaw Madison Bumgarner. The Nationals are now 8-2 SU their last 10 games and will have Doug Fister on the mound where the Nats are a PERFECT 5-0 in his last 5 team starts. Fister comes into this game with a 28K/ 2B mark on the season which tells me he is in great from with a 0.98 WHIP. What I also like about Fister he that he is a dominant ground-ball pitcher which is supported by his 65/51 Ground-ball/Fly-Ball ratio. The only Giant that has seen Fister is Michael Morse and I tend to give the advantage to the pitcher when facing hitters for the first time.

The Giants will call on Bumgarner who has a 2.68 ERA on the season, but looking closer his ERA is 4.94 at home with a 1.54 WHIP. San Fran is actually only 1-4 in Bumgarner's last 5 team starts vs. the Nationals also, including 0-2 last year. He has a 2.65 career ERA vs. the Nats but just has bad luck in trying to find a way to get the win. I will also note that the Giants are 2-7 in Bumgarner's last 9 home starts with the total set at 6.5 or lower. That goes well with the fact that Washington is 8-3 in their last 11 games when the total is set at 6.5 or lower.

Washington is hitting .273 as a team the last 7 games with a .469 SLG%. They are 9-6 on the season vs. left handed starters, hitting .290 and scoring 4.8 runs a game.  Desmond and Rendon are on fire and Desmond is 4-for-12 career vs. Bumgarner while Rendon is 1-for-2 career with a 2B vs. Bumgarner.

We  want to play against all Home teams with a ML of -100 to -150 after allowing 9 runs or more against any opponent after two straight wins by 6 runs or more as this situation is 50-28 (64%) .

Detroit Tigers vs. Chicago White Sox
Play: Chicago White Sox +123

The Sox are our free play for Tuesday night. They won last night against the Tigers and face Justin Verlander, who they are familiar with. Verlander has allowed 5, 3, 6, 5 and 5 runs in his last five starts and must face rookie sensation Jose Abreu and the rest of the White Sox lineup that includes home run threat Adam Dunn. The home team is 18-14 at home.

San Diego Padres vs. Philadelphia Phillies    
Play: Philadelphia Phillies -104

A.J. Burnett has been done in by walks this season. He has always issued more free passes than he should but this year it has been extreme. However, against a light hitting team like San Diego I am less concerned than I would be against more potent offenses. Also, since returning to the National League he has done a better job keeping the ball in the park, limiting the damage. Burnett has been rocked lately but I like this matchup.

Bruce Marshall

Oakland Athletics at Los Angeles Angels
Pick: Oakland Athletics

The Angels have caught a nice updraft on their current homestand, but not sure the pitching matchup works well for the Halos tonight vs. the A's. That's because the Angels have been forced to recall starter Hector Santiago, who was sent to Triple-A Salt Lake after losing his spot in the rotation last month. The left-hander compiled a 7.82 ERA while losing his last three starts for the Angels, and he went 1-1 with a 6.43 ERA in three minor league outings since. Prefer Oakland and starter Drew Pomeranz (5-2. 2.20 ERA) to bounce back tonight.

LT Profits

San Antonio vs Miami
Pick: Spurs +4.5

The Miami Heat showed the heart of a champion and beat the team with the best record in the NBA, the San Antonio Spurs, in Game 2 on the road to even this series 1-1. If Miami was playing any other team, we would say this series is over as the Heat would not figure to lose any games at home. But these are the Spurs, who were also the best road team in the league and are now 33-16 away from home after ending the Western Conference Finals with a win at Oklahoma City. They are also battle-tested coming out of the much stronger Western Conference. Whether that translates to a win here or not remains to be seen, but we do look for the Spurs to keep fighting to the final possession making these points worth taking. The Spurs are 16-6 ATS in their last 22 games vs. teams with a winning percentage above .600.

Pick: Over 197.5

We have been on the right ends of both totals of these NBA Finals between the San Antonio Spurs and Miami Heat, and we are going ‘over’ here in Game 3. These two teams ranked 1-2 in field goal percentage during the regular season and they are holding those exact same spots during these playoffs with Miami first and San Antonio second. However, in neither of the first two games did both teams shoot well simultaneously, and that may happen tonight. The Spurs will frantically be trying to reclaim the home court advantage that they lost in Game 2 against a Miami defense that may be a tad less intense after accomplishing its goal of stealing a game on the road, and that in turn should bring out the best of the Miami offense to keep pace. The ‘over’ is 20-8 in the Heat’s last 28 games vs. the Southwest Division.

River City Sharps

Cleveland Indians -110

The Cleveland Indians bats are as hot as they have been all season as they come off a 17-5 rout of the Texas Rangers on Monday night. The Tribe open up a series tonight in Kansas City as they will send Corey Kluber (6-3, 3.23) to the mound to face the Royals' Jason Vargas (5-2, 3.28) Kluber has absolutely been money for the Indians this season and the Tribe has won the last six starts the righty has made. Over his career, Kluber is a perfect 3-0 over these Royals with a 3.55 ERA. Kluber faced these Royals on April 24th and pitched a complete game with 11 strikeouts and allowing just one unearned. We like Vargas as well, but this is a play on Kluber pitching and the red hot bats of the Indians here tonight.
