MLB Friday

Houston Astros at Texas Rangers
It's the battle in Texas at Arlington. The Globe Life park is the proper name and this battle will feature Charlie Morton for the Stros. He is in fine mid season form. Coming in with 3 straight quality starts. Charlie did lose as he was out pitched against Toronto's Estrada in his last start, but Morton logged 4 wins to 1 loss in July. Home team will send Cole Hamels who is coming off a 9 inning gem giving up 4 hits 1 run at Minnesota. The value is with the Rangers and Houston has been on decline. We like Cole's perfect home record.

New York Mets at Colorado Rockies
Tonight in Denver the Rockies return home from 6 game road trip going 2-4 and they are still in the hunt. New York Mets are playing their 7th road game and they have been giving up runs. Steven Matz taking the mound for NY has not fared well. 3 quality starts in last 7 with Mets going 2-5/ Tfhis is the revenge match with Matz in bounce back spot. Jeff Hoffman has not done better, but the Rox will support his start and they are back at home. We will lay this one and leave it to the grueling schedule combined with mile high altitude to be too much for the Mets.

L.A. Angels at Toronto Blue Jays

The Jays are trying to catch traction, but they have a losing pitcher on the mound, J.A. Happ 3-7. He got knocked around at Cleveland for 9 hits and 7 runs in 6 innings in his last start. Toronto is 4-9 in Happ starts. L.A. Angels are not the cream of crop, but they have turned positive in money. That's always a good sign. On the mound is Parker Bridwel 4-1 for L.A. though the big Texan has gone less then 50 innings he is pitching quality games. Angels are 7-1 behind him. We like the other L.A. team today. Take it baby.

St Louis Cardinals at New York Mets
The visiting Cardinals are 3rd in NL Central just like the Miets in NL East. The difference will be on the mound with Adam Wainwright against the Mets Zack Wheeler. .Wainwright took  a 4-1 win against them in his last outing. He is the Cards  top money pitcher and though he has not done as well on the road he is still profitable 5-4 as a underdog.. Zack Wheeler 0-4 against NL Central and Mets are 2-7 with hime on the mound. Regressing in this spot. Take the Cards.

MLB Friday

The All Star festival has past. Everyone rested and time to get back to work.

Arizona Diamondbacks at Atlanta Braves.
Playing just under .500 the Braves are 20-22 at home They have a hot Knuckler on the home mound, R.A. Dickey. He is excellent at home pitching 7 quality starts out of 9 giving the Braves 7-2 advantage. Dickey has not lost at home since April 20th when he battled Washington's ace Strasburg in a 1 run loss. On the visiting Diamondbacks number two,Taijuan Walker. Not as impressive as Walker has gone 7 innings twice. 2 quality starts out of 7 away. However he does come in on a bounce back spot and D-Backs are 5-2 with Walker away. Arizona 5-2 head to head. They play well against NL East.

San Diego Padres at Philadelphia Phillies
Looking at the lower end of MLB standing we have the Pads at Phillies. Philadelphia getting summer showers with clearing in the after noon with clouds. The air will be heavy and the ball will not get lift tonight. Going for San Diego, Clayton Richard, he's not having a good season at 5-8 and Pads are 6-11. However Philadelphia doesn't have much advantage with Nick Pivetta, 2-4 and team 3-7.
So the wins are hard to come by either team. We do see pitching improving tonight. Richards is a veteran pitcher who has been around. He is coming off a tough outing and this is a bounce back spot. Pivetta is rolling with 3 quality starts out of last 4 including a 1 run 7 inning performance in New York his last time out. We like the Under. The Phillies Under 4-0-1 last 5 home games. 13-4-4 after a loss. 16-6-5 overall. 4-1 with Pivetta.  The Padres Under 6-1 on the road. 5-1-1 against NL East. 4-1 Richard away. 4-1 following a team loss. Head to head Under 4-0

Los Angeles Dodgers at Cincinnati Reds
It's the Great American Ballpark. LA with 42-26 record comes 31-17 against right handed pitching and 17-8 against losing teams. Those are pretty good numbers. Pitching for LA is Hyn-Jin Ryun 2-6 with 2 quality starts. The South Korean product is the weak link in the powerhouse Dodgers rotation. Ryu's start neutralizes the playing field with Reds at home. LA has only 3 wins out of 10 Ryu starts and none away from Dodgers Stadium. His last start was against the Reds and though LA managed a win Ryu did not look good. Gave up 3 homers and 4 RBI lasting 4 innings. Asher Wojciechowski has only 3 starts, took a ND against Dodgers  but held his own against the Cardinals at home. We'll take the mid size home dog on this match up.

Cincinnati Reds +145 for 1 unit(L)

St Louis Cardinals at Baltimore Orioles
We have the Orioles reeling as they stagger home after a woeful 1-7 road trip. St Louis sending Carlos Martinez and he's good. Stingy pitcher showing 0.77 WHIP in last 3 starts and blanking the Phillies at home. Kevin Gausman has been laboring lasting only 3 innings at Bronx and touched for 7 runs. The line has moved to St Louis since opening, but the Cardinals play look square to us. As good as Martinez has been he's not nearly effective away. Baltimore comes to play at Camden and we like Showalter's team to get back on track.

Colorado Rockies at Pittsburgh Pirates
The Pirates are showing up. Their looking for a sweep of Colorado and the Rox are reeling. On the mound German Marquez 4-3 with 4.44 ERA pitched close to 50 innings. He is a road guy. The Bucks are sending Chad Kuhl 1-5 with 5.63 ERA and over 50 innings. Chad splits his innings worked away and home but, he's given up more than twice the runs at home. He's pitched well in last two games and I look for him to regress tonight. Play the Rox for no sweep and fade Kuhl at home against visiting Marquez.

New York Yabkees at Pittsburgh Pirates
The streaking Yankees lost one in Pittsburgh and we have a day game matching Pineda for NY against Taillon for the Pirates. As good as the Yankees are playing they're still below .500 away from Bronx and similarly with Pittsburgh as bad as they look they are above .500 at home.
New York pitcher Michael Pineda has gone 14 inning in last 2 games giving up 3 runs. He is striking out batters and pitching deep, but he will be tested today. The Bucs sending Jameson Taillon and he is electric. Pitching 20 inning in last 3 games giving up 2 runs and a big spot to change the momentum for the Pirates

Let's take it.

Boston Red Sox at Baltimore Orioles
Drew Pomeranz takes the mound for Red Sox visiting Baltimore. He has already matched with Dylan Bundy 10 days ago winning that contest at Fenway. Drew si also the front runner earning slightly more then Chris Sale and Boston is winning at 62% clip. It looks all good, however 77% win at home and under 43% away and Camden Yard is a tough home field producing 80% wins. Bundy pitching quality games and we look for him to compete at home.

Welcome back friends 2017

Spring traing camp is winding down. Players are tuned and ready to rock. We're on the watch tower doing the same.

Cactus League: Seattle Mariners at San Diego Padres

The Pads coming off  split squad will play light. We like the fact these two teams share the same Peoria Sports complex making both teams virtually at home. Let's see what Mariner's will look like today. Seattle will have the better team today and short favorite with historically bad March pitcher, Yovani Gallardo. We don't place much weight on that.
