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.

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.
