MLB Friday

Wow the week flew by and it's already Friday! That's alright it's going to be a busy weekend as usual. Hey the Dodgers are still rolling. They started hot last year and first half is going great this year. Billingsly coming off a 5 run game I expect better in this spot. Lilly is pitching well too and coming off a 5 run game which likely will improve at home. So can we take the Under.

MLB Monday

Being in L.A. I followed the Freeway series and what a series it was. Nail biter all the way and you know the Angels took the series, but they exhausted their pitching. Look what happened with Ervin Santana getting clobbered when the pen is hurting. Now on to game 2 at the Big A with Sando getting the call pitching against Bartolo Colon who stuggled mightily against Minnesota and has not gone more than 5 all May. Last recorded win was 4/28. Still Angel pitching is depleted and I can not pass +170 in this spot. Also these low number Totals are just getting crushed Over by the Angels not to mention White sox with their limited Over the record is O/U 5-2 when at 8 or 8.5 on the road. Take the early Total and steal the Moneyline as Angels are the big public play.

*Keep in mind this is a game wiht live wagering available at various Books. Which means chances of profit taking during game is always a option.

MLB Interleague "The Freeway Series"

I have no love for the interleague games, but taking a shot with the winningest team in the Majors who happen to also be the best at home.

LOS ANGELES DODGERS -120 for 1 unit(L)

So many chances to cash this in and Dodgers could not answer.

Philadelphia (J. Blanton) at Washington (J. Lannan)
Following the games with certain expectations produce surprises, but some of the most obvious are the one's you never see coming. Washington Nationals are playing decent ball, above the expectation, coming off a road trip 4-4 Western road trip, 6-5 May. Philadelphia on the other hand is playing below expectation dropping two series at home, 2-4 last 6 at home all losses by more than -1.5 and Blanton pitching has strung 2 losses sporting 6.82 ERA & 1.60 WHIP. How will they compete against lefty Lannan who has logged 7 games 3.89 ERA and much better 1.86 ERA at home? I think the rise of Washington to fall of Philadelphia has brought misdirection to today's game and if it's the history holds true nature will correct itself. Joe Blanton 3-0 in most recent match up against Nats and Phil's are 63% at Washingon.

PHILADELPHIA -105 for 1 unit(W)

Cincinnati Reds (A. Harang) at San Diego Padres (K. Corriea)
Reds and Pads are another two teams heading into different directions, but San Diego was anticipated to be bad and there wasn't much covering that fact. Pads line up is hitting .221 right & .209 left and their pen has been heavily taxed facing one of MLB's best road team. Kevin Corriea coming off a quality outing, but ND in Pad loss. Wins have eluded Kevin and all 3 home starts are ND's, but Pads are 2-1. Aaron Harang eating up innings and taking down batters 2.93 ERA in all games. San Diego native should have no probs at Petco.

St Louis Cardinals at Pittsburgh Pirates
Pinero vs Ohlendorf
Bucks regressed on the road, but St Louis is also falling. It's just most view Cards to recover and Pirates continue to fall. That perception is a misguided thinking. Bucks on the road is a contrast to what's been happening at home and they've already got a win on their first game back from the road. Why not ride the home dog.

Running short n time today. Playing Texas Rangers at Oakland A's listing pitchers McCarthy vs Cahill. I will take the Oakland A's with ML being very tight and pitching looks to give contact in the day game. I'm suspecting A's strike first and Texas will play catch up. A's should have late game advantage and will be bit chilly.

Detroit Tigers at Chicago White Sox.
Galarraga vs Buehrie
This game in the south side has White Sox written all over. Not because of returning Jermaine Dye and Josh Fields for offensive improvement, not because of Tigers, Armando Galarraga, sliding a tad with 26.80 ERA, but most of all because Mark Buehrle showing he's still has the stuff making him one of the most winningest home pitcher in modern time.
