Arizona Diamondbacks at Washington Nationals
We have a heavy chalk game which I'm not considering the sides at all, but the run line and total. We're fading Zona on run line, not getting into the details, but we all know the Nats are rolling and they are positive on run line wins. More so are the Diamondbacks terrible run line loss numbers and Nuno taking the mound away usually ends in run line loss. The other take is the Over with Zim going for the Nats. He has been absolutely Over in his appearance and we see at least 8 runs combined.

Philadelphia Phillies at San Francisco Giants
This game will feature NL East basement Philadelphia Phillies in game two at S.F. Giants. Game one pitcher's dual with Phillies Cole Hamels and Giants Madison Bumgardner both going 7 innings you'd think it live up to low scoring, grinding type of game, but the Under did not hold. Low 6 was doomed in the 8th when score became tied at 3-3. Even the first 5 inning Under lost with score of 1-4. The Total maybe meaningless to these teams except for the fact S.F. lost leading after 7th which is one of those rare baseball occurrence, especially for the Giants at home, blowing the Under.  S.F. losing in extra inning making them 3-7 in last 10.  It'll be critical to take today's game and Hudson has high expectation to get it done. However Hudson having trouble getting the wins and though Philadelphia's Kendrick is getting knocked around he does come into a bounce back spot. We like the match up to produce runs. Philadelphia ranked second in Over's and they are better on the road.

PHILADELPHIA at SAN FRANCISCO OVER 7.5 at +107 for 1 unit(W)

Seattle Mariners at Detroit Tigers
Tonight our thought are on momentum money dogs and that's the Mariners winners of 8 out of last 10. They are profitable team with extremely good run line return. Detroit are not and they have won two in a row, but that only salvaged the Pittsburgh series and they are 4 wins out of last 10. Rick Porcello for Detroit has been pitching well, but wins have not come easy. Even excluding the loss from his relief appearance the Tigers have dropped 4 out of 6 with Porcello on the mound.  James Paxton has only 22 innings since returning, but he's getting the job done and now looks stretched out.
We taking the Mariners.

SEATTLE MARINERS -120 for 1 unit(W)

Cincinnati Reds at Colorado Rockies
Let's play the pitching angle. The Reds sending a weakening All Star, Alfredo Simon 12-7 with 3.08 ERA, but unable to win since the break. He is not the same pitcher we saw in the first half and strike to walk ratio is terrible. Coors Field altitude is not going to help and the Rockies are not the same team at home. Rox coining home from bad road trip, 1-5,  but they are much tougher 28-30 at home and Reds are 28-31on the road. Colorado has their money pitcher on the mound, Jorge De La Rosa  11-8 with 4.34 ERA.  His wins come at home, 7-2, and the Rockies are 8-2. Colorado 20-8 last 28 meetings against Cincinnati in Denver.

COLORADO ROCKIES -114 for 1 unit(W)

Pittsburgh Pirates at Arizona Diamondbacks
We have NL Central contending Pittsburgh on the road against Arizona Diamondbacks. The D-Backs are 48-62 and 14 games back of front runner Los Angeles. Arizona doesn't have much to play for, but the fact these guys are Major Leaguers. Any losing team is capable of taking down a contender, maybe the costly error or the lone hero in the line up or the pitchers or the umps, there are so many variables. The Diamondbacks Chase Anderson is on a roll going 19 innings in last 3 games with 1.89 ERA and 21 strikeouts. He carved the Reds in his last start. Opposite is Vance Worley with 0.98 WHIP on the road. We like Pittsburgh. The Bucks are very good 4-1 after scoring 5 or more in last 5. 12-4 as road favorite of -110 to -150, 17-6 against losing teams.  The D-Backs 3-13 as home dog of +110 to +150, 5-11 against winning teams.

Sup gang. Are you guys watching the line?  Heavy chalk day with Nationals, Tigers, As, coming in higher than -200 The White Sox -300.  The games represent clear edge, but be aware of recent trades. It's also opportunities for unexpected upsets, like the recent Oakland Houston series, so we turn our attention to Miami where the line is tight and newly acquired pitcher from Houston Jarred Cosart.  He has been rocky as of late and we like the Reds pitcher Matt Latos better. Matt is lacking innings, but he is looking good on the road with the Reds domination over Miami, last night was 6 straight going to last season, they maybe turning the corner here.

Cincinnati Reds +102 for 1 unit(W)
