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.

I have a another game on tap. Stay tuned
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.
S.F. GIANTS +138 for 1 unit(L)
