Colorado Rockies at Washington Nationals
Let's get started with the early day game. Rox finally snap their losing streak and did it in strong fashion, 7-1 win over the Nationals knocking out Dan Haren in 3 innings, and Colorado starter Jhoulys Chacin went 7 strong innings scattering 5 hits and no runs. The pen has been preserved and the Rockies will send another winning pitcher, Jorge De La Rosa. Rockies are 10-5 when De La Rosa takes the mound and he is their top money winning starter. Although De La Rosa is pitching in fine form 4 of his losses have come on the road. Washington pitcher, Ross Detwiler, is losing money for his backers, at home he is 1-3. However he is pitching quality games at home. The take on this game with two lefty pitchers both teams are averaging only 3 runs per game. This match up is also extremely Under at 77% in Washington. Go with the Under

Los Angeles Dodgers at San Diego Padres
Games are getting on the back burner with the Stanley Cup happening. (Consider the Under in this game) But we do have this NL West match with Dodgers down 2-0 in this series. L.A. ace  Kershaw didn't get it done and now it's up to Zack Greinke. He's had trouble on the road and this is the site where Zack was involved in bench clearing altercation that put him in DL. Facing Edinson Volquez and Dodgers stock down quite a bit. I buy into L.A. with one of great arm in baseball. Yes, the Padres have had their way with the Dodgers up to his point, but pitching is always a key component where the Dodgers hold advantage today.
Go with Greinke to have a dominant game.

LOS ANGELES DODGERS -104 for 1 unit(W)

Pittsburgh Pirates at Los Angeles Angeles
The Angeles are dangerous paper team. With line up capable of pummeling any team, but that has not been the case in many of their games. Jerome Williams on the mound for the Angels, he has not been quality in recent games and L.A. has lost 8 of his 10 home games. Lariano for the Pirate is stable at home and away. Go with the road dog.

Oakland A's at Texas Rangers
The battle of AL West continues and this game is one of those rare reverse line movement. Going to side with the original opening line which showed Texas as a short favorite.  The line has crossed over making Texas a slight under dog.  The best bounce back team in MLB is now a slight dog at home, we are on it.

Atlanta Braves at San Diego Padres
This appears to be a good pitching match up with Julio Teheran for the Braves and Jason Marquis for the Padres. It seems the Braves have been expose to West coast pitching, but they did break out in the last game against the Dodgers. Atlanta is O/U 21-14 on the road and Padres bats are hot. San Diego also boast better Over record at home. Julio O/U 5-2 on the road.

Texas Rangers at Toronto Blue Jays
The Jays return to Toronto and if you recall their power surge was just taking off before their road trip. Justin Grimm has been pitching quality games for Texas, but his off game has come on the road. That not to say Josh Johnson is on top of his game, he's far from it, no wins yet. The Jays have one win to show for his 6 appearances and the Rangers hit right hand pitchers almost a run better. These teams went through a marathon 18 inning game and burned their pens. The Total has gone down 0.5 to 9 and taking the better Over.

S.F. Giants at Arizona Diamondbacks
The line on this game tells an interesting tale of Giants taking this game for a rare road win with Madison Bumgarner taking the hill.  The home team, Diamondbacks, will send Trevor Cahill.  These two pitchers met back in 4/30 at Chase Field in a pitchers duel  Arizona has been the money team thus far and both pitchers are in a position to improve from their last games. The 10-18 S.F. road record is undeniable and Bumgarner has not produced a win in last 3 starts, but the Giants do play their best game against NL West. This one in a tight line to the Giants and Under

Thursday baseball getting ready for the weekend. Looking to pick up ground summer is right around the corner.

Arizona Diamondbacks at St. Louis Cardinals
Two power teams meet for the fourth game of their series. First game 1-7 Cards, second game  7-6 Zona in extra, third game 10-3 Zona, all three games have gone Over the Total. Today we get a low 7.5 with Kennedy and Miller. Both pitchers have been quality, but this number looks to get crushed. It should at least be 8 if not 8.5 the way these two teams are playing right now.

14-16 +870

Can't get some traction and no satisfaction.  The plays are going to get Total heavy and I'm going to thin out the Sides a bit. Traditionally the public always plays the Sides, that's what makes the game  exciting, but for those who care to forgo "exciting" for profit, plays the Total. It's the Wiseguy play, the Sharp play, call it what you like. It pays to studies the numbers.

Tampa Bay at Detroit Tigers
The top money pitcher goes for Tampa on the road, Matt Moore 8-0 with Tampa 10-1, and he has been good with 1.08 WHIP.  Anibal Sanchez pitching for the Tigers at 5-5 is a home pitcher absolutely quality at home with 0.81 WHIP.  The odds makers have posted a low Total of 8 in this American League game and this one is going to be a pitching dominated game.

Houston Astros at Los Angeles Angels
C.J. Wilson for the Angels have been pitching quality games. The problem is Angels are not winning behind him. Matter of fact they've dropped 4 of his last 5 starts, with 4 quality starts,  his lone win did come at home and batters are getting good rips.  Jordan Lyles for Houston with tad over 30 innings of work is hard to gauge at this point, but with Astros already taking the first two games at over +200 dog it would be wise not to chance the Angels.  Better yet why not take the highly inflated line with Houston in a groove at L.A.  Not as risky as going the other way and we have a good chance to steal this one at the Big A.

Houston Astros +229 for 1 unit(W)

Toronto Blue Jays at San Diego Padres
We got Ramon Oritz taking the ball for the Jays, trying to avoid the sweep in Petco Park, will face Edinson Volquez.  Toronto was swinging the bats pretty good until they arrived in San Diego, even with field size reduction the pitchers are still having their way.  Ortiz is a triple A recall taking the place of Morrow and he's not filling the hole. Luckily Volquez is not pitching like he did last year and the Jays have historically given his trouble. But considering he's regaining form and he does like to follow up quality starts.  I think the advantage still is with the Padres with momentum.  Normally in a sweep spot I would give a hard look at the losing team, but already depleted pitching, cooling bats and a "call up" on the mound.  You have to take advantage of the moving line toward Toronto, just like it did yesterday, and go against the grain with San Diego at home.

San Diego Padres -130 for 1 unit(L)
