Seattle Mariners at Houston Astros
Looks like the players are fading Joe Saunders and the Mariners tonight. Joe has been struggling of late going 1-5 and awful ERA 7.71 in last seven starts. His overall road numbers are 5-7 and the Mariners are 6-9. But following a game where he gave up 7 runs on 9 hits he should improve against Houston.  The Astros sending Dallas Keuchel who is coming off of 7 scoreless innings against the Blue Jays was the hard luck loser ending 1-2 and holds promise, but Keuchel is not consistent yet and I sense a set back after that start. I don't think these starter will qualify for decision today, but Seattle to come out on top.

Baltimore Orioles at Boston Red Sox
The battle of AL East continues with Baltimore in striking distance and need to keep Boston in sights. The task will not be easy in Fenway where the Sox own 42-23 record. The Red Sox have already taken 2 out of 3 and winning their last 4 in a row. Boston has collected wins in last 3 series, but as for the Baltimore Boston series for this season it's knotted up at 2-2.  Jon Lester getting the ball tonight for Boston and he has been pitching well. 4-0 at home with Boston going 8-1 and getting plenty of run support. Despite all the fortunes of Boston at home they will see one of their nemesis with Chris Tillman getting the call.  Tillman 7-1 pitching much better on the road and Baltimore is excellent 9-2 when Chris gets the start. Going for the salvage on the road with Baltimore as a sizable underdog.

Texas Rangers at Seattle Mariners
The Mariners Ace Felix Hernandez will take the mound in a night-day game against Texas young gun Martin Perez. "King Felix" coming off a quality start, but had tough time against Texas in Arlington back in 8/17. He also had trouble against Toronto, but otherwise throwing well. But then Mariners are not supporting Felix resulting in 1-4 record in August. Texas has been surging and Martin Perez is in the money. 4 wins 1 ND in last 5 with Texas winning all 5 games. Martin has pitched more on the road with 5-2 record and if you look at his recent 3 starts his WHIP is 1.09 ,but Martin is also the beneficiary of excellent run support. The Books have hung a low number here at 7 in pitcher friendly confines of Safeco Field. Martin is pitching Under 5-3 away, but averaging Total is 10. Felix also pitching Under, but the Rangers match has gone Over 5-1-1 last 7 and 3-0-1 in Seattle. Felix has not had back to back Under pitching at Safeco. It's happened on the road or home/road starts and it rarely happens at all. Game going Over in this day time match up.

Tampa Bay Rays at Kansas City Royals
The Rays are making a push for October. Keeping in striking distance of AL East while keeping the Wild Card spot on hold the Rays will travel to Kansas City. The Rays have won all series since returning from the West coast.  The Royals was able to stop the bleeding yesterday taking the last game of the series against the Nationals, but it was not a easy game. 7 games losing streak and one late inning win makes KC a risky proposition against a AL East contender. On the other side Jeremy Hellickson starting for the Rays has not been pitching deep of late and having a losing August going 1-3.  Jeremy's road numbers are opposite of his home starts and Rays are 5-8. Kansas City sending Jeremy Guthrie their top money pitcher, but he too is having a losing August going 1-3 and his ERA has been on the rise for past 3 starts. The pitching angle will favor KC today, but Tampa is playing better ball. The Total has risen to 9 and the game under the sun seems likely to get some runs, but this type of game is likely to fall short. Looking for the rising total to fail going Over.

San Francisco Giants at Colorado Rockies
We have a big Total in Denver, it's mile high in August and the Total players have their sight set on scoring to soar. But not much attention have been given to the Sides and Barry Zito taking the mound for the S.F. seems like an after thought. I don't think it'll be so easy for the Rox to steam roll the Giants today. Zito in a spot to improve and he's pitched well at Coors.  Juan Nicasio 3 quality starts out of 10 home games with Rox 5-5 does not impress. We'll back the Giants on the road.

The Pirates are bucking their trend of tanking on the west coast road trip. The Bucks have won the San Diego series and now looking to take out S.F.  The Giants are reeling in the West, 2-4 in last 6 at home, but they faced division leading Boston and contending Pirates so they've been playing as Underdogs. Today the Giants will send Ryan Vogelsong who pitches much better at home. He will face off with AJ Burnett who has been pitching well with better then 60% quality starts, but has lacked wins. AJ on the mound away from PNC wins has been especially elusive. Going with Giants as the home dog today

The Rays will send their ace David Price and he's been all that. Price has gone 7 or more innings in 9 of last 10 games and the Rays have come away winners 8 out of 10. C.C. Sabathia for the Yankees have not been efficient not pitching past 6 innings in 6 out of his last 7  starts. His wins are coming off New York offensive out put and Sabathia's pitch count has been very high. Games are going Over on the road at 8-4, Price has gone Over against N.Y. 5-1-1 in last 7 and 11-1-2 after scoring 5 runs or more. Jerry Meals behind the plate has been Over for New York and Tampa.

New York Yankees at Tampa Bay Rays
You have to love the AL East rivalry 4 out of 5 teams are playing above .500 ball. The Yankees in 4th place six games back of Boston is almost lined up with Baltimore and they can certainly make it interesting if the Yanks take the Tampa series. It's no easy task at the Trop. the Rays hold 32-28 record against division opponents, 41-23 at home record. But N.Y. 8-2 in last 10 games are hot and Hiroki Kuroda 5 quality starts out of last 7 and the Yanks have gone 5-2. Kuroda is coming off a poor start and he should bounce back today.  Chris Archer with 15 starts is maybe not Kuroda's level, but he too is pitching well 4 quality of of last 7 games. However he has not logged a win since July 27th, beating Yankees in NY 1-0, and scoring will be tough to come tonight. Both pitchers trending extreme Under with Archer at home and Kuroda away combined O/U is 2-19

Pittsburgh Pirates at San Francisco Giants
The Pirates are traveling on. Moving northwards to the Bay city. It'll be a cool night at AT&T Park, air will be thick, nothing like what the Bucks felt in San Diego. The Pirates will also be greeted by Matt Cain, who has regained his form, pitching 0.76 WHIP in last 3 games, but the Giants are not supporting him. The Bucks will send Jeff Locke who has been in a rut, coming off a 8 run game against Arizona. Not pitching quality games of late, but he is a road warrior. Taking the pitchers to battle it out. Locke Under 8-4 on the road, 13-5 against right hand starter. Matt Cain has been pitching Over, but opponents are not scoring in recent games. I think the condition will favor Cain to have another quality start.

GAME TOTAL UNDER 7 at -118 for 1 unit(L)
So much for pitching duel. Matt Cain did not look good before leaving the game with a hit ball. This game is sailing Over and we'll be back to fight another battle tomorrow.

It's mid week baseball and we look to remain sharp.

Pittsburgh Pirates at San Diego Padres
Pittsburgh is the team to beat in NL Central and there are 3 teams, St Louis and Cincinnati, all playing with more then 70+ winners. It's going to a wild NL Central finish down the stretch and every one of these games will count no matter who the opponent. I see all three of these teams getting money facing weaker teams. With that said the Bucks will send Gerrit Cole, New Port Beach, CA. product and pride of UCLA, he should feel pretty comfortable pitching at PetCo. Cole has not pitched much on the road, 20 innings, but 0.69 WHIP all 3 quality starts and all 3 games Under. San Diego Padres split the 4 game series with New York Mets, but dropped the first 2 of 3 game series with Pittsburgh Pirates. Now in danger of getting swept at home and their current home record is 2-4. The Padres 3-7 in last 10 in need of a win will send Ian Kennedy to stop the losses. Kennedy coming off a bad start, 4 2/3 innings 7 hits 5 runs, 3 homers, overall 4-9 and combined team record of 8-16. The public has Kennedy tagged for a fade, however, Ian Kennedy from Huntington Beach, CA. and pride of USC is not going to get shown off by a UCLA product. Though Kennedy is 6 years Gerrit's senior and never faced each other outside of MLB This Southern California history suggests pride will be on Kennedy's shoulder. Cole is the celebrated young gun and Kennedy is coming to his twilight. The line has been moving in favor of Pittsburgh and we will go against the grain in taking the home dog San Diego.  The Pirates are 3-8 in last 11 as a road favorite, 1-5 in last 6 against pitcher with WHIP greater than 1.30, 0-4 in last 4 after Cole's quality start. San Diego Padres 11-5 last 16 after scoring 2 runs or less, 5-2 in last 7 against pitcher with WHIP less than 1.15, 5-2 after opponents score 5 runs or more.

Cleveland Indians at Los Angeles Angels
The Angels ace, rock solid Jered Weaver, lost to the Indians yesterday. It was a game where the Angels should of taken care of business. The line movement was big L.A. went from mid -120's to mid -140's and the loss shows the state of demise. The Indians are not a good road team by any means, but today's pitcher Danny Salazar comes in with 0.98 WHIP and will see a weaker Angels line up. Still do not trust Indians after a road win. The Angels pitcher CJ Wilson has two straight wins on the road, one of them in Cleveland, and he is pitching better at home. I like the Angels tonight, but the money will take the Under. The Total tonight is favoring the number to go Over 7.5 -121 and we are taking the Total Under.

Los Angeles Dodgers at Miami Marlins
L.A. rolling and if you don't know you have no clue as to what's happening in Baseball. Vegas odds have L.A. going all the way and it wasn't that long ago when the Dodgers were rated 100-1. Stranger things have happened in baseball and it's fair to say the odds will move again before October. Well, the Dodgers did lose that last game in Philadelphia and it was a game where L.A. started with the lead. L.A. had been absolute money when drawing first blood, not just winning, but taking the RL money as well. Today the Dodgers are in Miami taking on the lowly Marlins. L.A. is favored with Hyun Jin Ryu taking the mound. Ryu is making money at 12-3, team record 17-6, on the road with Ryu on the mound Dodgers are 8-4. So if you love the Dodgers your in luck because the line has come down from the opening. If the public loves the Dodgers and the line is coming down the big play is on Miami and the Marlins will send their top pitcher Jose Fernandez. You might think this is a good pitching duel, but Ryu's road numbers are not impressive. He did  go deep in St Louis and pitched well at home against New York which covers some of his unmemorable starts on the road like 8/2 Chicago Cubs lasting 5 innings giving up 11 hits, but Cubbies only cashed in 2 runs to lose or 7/22 Toronto 5 innings 9 hits 4 runs, but L.A. exploded for 14 runs or 7/10 Arizona 5 innings 7 hits 5 runs, but again L.A. offense answered. Now L.A. offense has started to cool and late inning rallies wearing off. L.A. coming off a loss in very winnable game in Philadelphia set's up Jose Fernandez to mow down this Dodgers line up in their tail end of the road trip.

Chicago White Sox at Minnesota Twins
The White Sox lost the series to these Twins at home and now they can return the favor.  Hector Santiago getting the ball for the Sox and his road numbers are good. Coming off two non quality starts, but only gave up 1 run in last game against Detroit. The problem is Hector does not perform away, 2-4 and team record 4-12. Minnesota handles left hand pitching.  They will send Samuel Deduno who gave up 4 runs in KC then 4 runs against Cleveland, both short outings, should bounce back here. The price has improved for the Twins money line. Backing Minnesota at home.

Coming off an outstanding 8 innings 2 run game he was a hard luck loser in 0-2 game. Travis has pitched well, but wins have been hard to come by.  Travis is in a spot to regress. St Louis has been money after scoring 2 runs or less and Joe Kelly is in the money. Joe is better on the road and he does come in a spot to improve. Fade the Cubs.

SF Giants at Miami Marlins
The Giants pulled off a upset in Washington. Still SF wins are far and between dropping the first 2 games on the road and have 4 wins out of last 10.  The good news for the Giants today is Chad Gaudin taking the mound.  He has been the most reliable of the SF pitching staff, 5-2 with team record of 7-4.  Gaudin 4-0 on the road. Gaudin's lacking quality starts and despite his 4-0 road record the Giants have logged 6-6 team record. However Gaudin has improved over the season and now looks fully stretched out.  With the Giants bull pen heavily taxed Chad will be challenged to extend his outing.  The Miami Marlins will also send a pitcher on the rise with Nathan Eovaldi.  Nathan pitching quality starts, but Miami not giving him any runs.  Eovaldi starts have averaged under 7 runs total.  This game should be tight and low scoring.  The Giants Under 10-3-1 in last 14,  6-2 when opponent score 2 runs or less, Gaudin Under 4-1 when opponent scores 5 runs or more.  Miami Under 20-5-3 overall, 12-3-1 against losing teams, Eovaldi Under 4-0 after a quality start, Under 5-0 overall.  Going Under 7 with the Giants

Pittsburgh Pirates at St Louis Cardinals
This is what the NL Central will come down to the Bucks vs the Cards. So far the Bucks have the advantage, but I wouldn't count the Red Birds out. On the last game of this series the Pirates will send AJ Burnett 5-8 tough luck pitcher with 2.95 ERA, team record of 9-12, road record of 2-8. He is coming off a non quality loss in Colorado after completing a 9 inning 1 run win at home against the same team.  Normally I would suggest a bounce back here on sea level, but that has not been the case this season as indicated by the team record. Lance Lynn has also been having problems getting the "W" despite pitching 4 straight quality games. His overall game in last 10 starts have gone 4-6 dropping some heavy favorites at more than -200 making Lynn backers little gun shy is a understatement. However Lynn 8-2 at home with Cardinals going 9-3. Lynn 12-3 following a Cardinals loss, 9-2 following Cardinals scoring 2 runs or less.  The Cardinals 12-4 with Lynn favored, 21-6 when Lynn faces NL Central rivals. The Pirates 4-11 with Burnett as a under dog. Take St Louis.

Houston Astros at Oakland A's
Got a good young pitcher in Astro's Jarred Cosart. The kid has nasty stuff and he's fearless on the road. Oakland with Colon got knocked out yesterday and I have a feeling A's Jarrod Parker's going to have a touch match up. Oakland may wake up here, but the First 5 innings might be interesting. This match up was played out in Houston 5-4 Astro's winner, but that score due to 3 runs scored in the bottom of the 9th for the rally and the upset. Houston 2-8 in last 10 games have not won back to back in quite sometime however the back to back sequence has happened with better percentage on the road. Cosart has already shown better stuff on the road with 0.86 ERA and 0.95 WHIP coming off a non quality home start against Boston. Cosart had the lead in Minnesota and tied game in Toronto midway through. He also blanked Tampa for the win. Parker has 2 wins in a row since going with a decision for 6 games in a row. His home ERA is 4.65 compared to 3.42 on the road and quality start also declines. Looking for another ND from Parker and Houston to lead half way.

The Nationals brought their big bats yesterday clobbering John Lannan and the visiting Phillies, final score 9-2, with the Nats getting 12 hits to Phillies 4 hits. Philadelphia is not close to being well with record of 52-63 much of their losses have come on the road 23-36. Despite the telling tales of Philadelphia coming to Nationals Park where the Nats have 32-28 record these two teams are similar in their 2013 quest for the pennant race. Yesterday's one sided game was a rarity. 6 out of last 10 match ups was decided with 2 runs or less, home team has won 7 out of last 10, but Phillies will send one of their top road pitcher in Cliff Lee. He is not getting support and though Cliff is 6-2 away the Phillies have 6-6 record not able to fully take advantage. The Nationals going with Taylor Jordan who is not pitching quality, 2 out of 7 non quality starts, and Philadephia has beat him 4-2 back in July 9th knocked him out in 5 innings. Nationals are 0-7 after scoring 5 runs or more in their previous game. 2-6 against pitcher with WHIP less than 1.15 and Cliff Lee coming into a spot to improve.

That'll wash out the 4 game sweep they've just won from the White Sox in ther previous home stand. Cleveland going with Zack McAllister and he is a home pitcher, but he's not working very deep, have not gone 7 innings in 5 of his last 6.  Zack may improve today, but Detroit sending their top money pitcher Max Scherzer who is dominant of late and better on the road.  Looking for Scherzer to continue his winning ways.

A day game at Petco Park you should be there. It'll be some cloud coverage, but sunny mild about 72 degrees with little breeze. Shorts and T-shirt with a hat kind of day. Also a good pitching day. Baltimore Orioles have declined in the race and money. Going 5-5 in last 10 games however at the hefty price tag they carried through Houston and Seattle series the wins were marginal and losses were heavy. Now on the road they managed to pull ahead in game 1 of San Diego inter league series, which Baltimore continues as favorites, sending Miguel Gonzales, 8-5 winning pitcher, who wins more at home then away. He bombed out in last two starts and does come in a spot to improve. Miguel does much better in day games where his WHIP drops to 1.14 and though he does not have the wins to go with his quality road starts he is 70% quality on the road. The Padres will send their veteran Eric Stults with 8-10 record overall, but 5-2 at home with team record of 8-2 and his WHIP at home is a nasty 0.94 pitching 80% quality starts.  These teams are not exactly Under trending teams, they both play slightly Over, and Petco Park is not the pitcher friendly park it used to be, but given these two teams are not that familiar with either pitching and both pitchers coming in a spot to improve in performance. Inter league Under for Baltimore road games 7-2, 13-6 in last 19 overall. San Diego is Under 5-2, with Total at 7 to 8.5 is Under 6-2 in last 8.  Back the UNDER.

Today with Kershaw taking the mound Southern California money is on the Dodgers for sure. The Cards are tough on good pitchers, 25-10 last 35 against pitchers with WHIP less than 1.15 and they are 7-3 at current Under dog price. St Louis does not lose many home games and Joe Kelly has pitched two good games against winning opponents, Pittsburgh and Atlanta. Make this a tough match up, but St Louis off a loss is 39-17 in last 56 games. Kelly is 4-1 in last 5 home starts. This match up in St Louis has resulted 36-17 in favor of the Cardinals.

The Nats are 12.5 games behind the 1st place Atlanta and their season is fading. They will send their top ERA pitcher Stephen Straussburg with 3.04 in 130 innings of work.  At home that ERA is down to 1.68 with 75 innings and 0.88 WHIP. Needless to say his home Total has gone Under 8-3 The trouble with  Straussburg  is a money losing pitcher, maybe not all his doing, but the Nationals are 4-7 when Straussburg starts at home. It all started with a shaky start in Miami back in July 12th, he returned home to pitch quality games, but was out done by two hot teams, Pittsburgh and Los Angeles, then took another loss in Detroit. Making it 4 losses in a row. Straussburgh is due for a win the way he's pitching at home, but considering how he has failed against winning teams we will back Atlanta on a Dog day Monday.  Atlanta 11-3 in last 14 match up against Washington.  The Braves will go with Mike Minor.  He is 11-5 with 2.75 ERA, 6-2 on the road pitching 80% quality games and the Braves are 8-3 in last 11 Minor road starts.

Toronto had a bright spot in Oakland winning their road series against division leading A's and the Jays extend their winning ways against AL West. They did lose last night, but they come in winning two series in a row.  The Jays bats are heating up again as they have scored 4 runs or more 7 out of last 10 games. Tommy Hanson for the Halos are giving up tons of runs, double digit average total in his starts. The Jays are sending Todd Redmond and expect a corp of relievers mid way through L.A. back from a dismal road trip and back at home they are .500 team. The extended losses should reverse in their home stand and likely split this series with Toronto. The Angels are Over 5-2 last 7 games with Total set at 7 to 8.5 and last 5 match ups have all gone Over.

MLB Thursday

41-27 +16,990

Seattle Mariners at Boston Red Sox
The Mariners Ace will take the mound to prevent the sweep in Boston. Felix Hernandez aka King Felix has been all that with 11-4 record, 6 quality starts in last 7 games, 9 quality starts in 12 road starts and 7 of his 11 wins have come on the road.  Felix has already beaten the Red Sox on July 8th 11-4 in 7 inning 2 run performance. But that win over Boston at Safeco was the lone win in the Boston series. After that the M's went on 8 game winning streak, caught two weak teams and Cleveland, two 1 run wins, to take the series. Now that's ended the Mariners have logged 2-5 record.  Red Sox at Fenway is a different animal from what the Mariners saw in Seattle. Tough as nails when Sox are favored, 41-17 in 58 games, 26-10 at -110 to -150, 23-9 in home games. Ryan Dempster faced the Mariners July 11 getting a No Decision, 8-7 Boston winner, and Ryan has not been quality 3 games in a row, but the Red Sox has pulled out winners in all of them. King Felix maybe the better pitcher tonight, but Felix is a money losing pitcher for the Mariners, 4-12 against winning teams, 1-5 following a previous team loss.  Mariners are 0-5 in last 5 meet in Boston.

BOSTON RED SOX -108 for 1 unit(W)
Wow! Thank the Baseball Gods
