Chicago White Sox at St Louis Cardinals
No I can't enough of this series and I'm still not sold on the Red Birds to take the final game. We have two rocky pitchers on the mound with Floyd for the White Sox and Westbrook for the Cards. Both pitchers looking to find their earlier form and I'm giving the road team to add to the Cardinals misery, losers of 12 out of last 19 games and 9 out of last 14 slide. The White sox taking 8 out of 9 road games and they are the best road team 18-10. Last night's 1 run shutout win by the Cards was a testament to Lynn's fine pitching and today should be a competitive game, but it is the Cardinals team that's reeling.

San Diego Padres at Seattle Mariners
The Padres sending Volquez to the mound in Seattle for the 3rd game having locked the series San Diego will look for a possiable sweep. Edinson Volquez 2-6 and Padres are 4-9, he is going through a rough patch recording 4 losses out of last 5 the lone ND was also lost by San Diego. However 3 of the last 5 games he simply received little support. Matter of fact going back all 13 games the 5 runs he got in his last start was the most run support he received, 4 run once. 3 run twice and the rest are less than 3 runs. Seattle sending the new kid Erasmo Ramirez who was hot in Tacoma. Getting the call up on a game where opponent does not hit could be a good thing. The very nature of how they've matched up dictates the UNDER 7.5, right now at -130, but both of these teams looking UNDER are going Over at pretty good clip, SDP 8 Over out of last 10 and SEA 7 Over out of last 10. The low scoring tendencies are getting bucked and the total runs are bit under estimated. We will also have a tight strike zone today with Paul Emmel behind the plate with 90% Over rate O/U 10-1. Buck the UNDER one more time.
