Pick: Milwaukee Brewers -172 (Rob Vinciletti)
On Sunday the free play is on the Milwaukee Brewers game. 960 at 2:10 eastern. The Brewers have Dominated the Pirates at home winning 21 of the last 23 games here. Today their starter is D. Bush. Historically Bush is much better at home. This year he has a solid outing here vs the Pirates allowing just 2 runs in 6+ innings. The Pirates are hitting a shade over .200 the past week. The Brewers are averaging over 5 runs per game the past week. Pittsburgh is a lousy 3-21 as a road dog in this range and Milwaukee is 10-4 as a home favorite in this range. Take Milwaukee today. On Sunday I have the NFL Power totals system and the MLB play of the day Dominator system going. Saturday cashed big led by the NFLX Goy winner on the Texans. For the free play take Milwaukee RV

Pick: Los Angeles Dodgers +110 (Jimmy Boyd)
The Dodgers are showing solid value in the underdog role this afternoon with Ted Lilly on the hill. Since joining the Dodgers, Lilly is a perfect 5-0 with an ERA of 1.34. And his best performance in that stretch came against Colorado, when he threw a two-hitter and struck out a season-high 11. But that shouldn’t come as too much of a surprise, considering is 4-1 (5-1 on the money line) in his career against Colorado. Probable Rockies starter Jason Hammel has been solid at home this season, but he appears to wearing down, as he has only recorded one win in his last five home starts. Plus, the Dodgers are 13-3 vs. an NL starting pitcher whose ERA is 4.20 to 4.70 this season. The Dodgers are 24-9 in the last 33 meetings in this series and 8-3 in the last 11 meetings in Colorado. Take LA.

Pick: Orioles vs. Angels Under 8 (Tom Freese)
Baltimore starter Jeremy Guthrie has allowed 3 runs or less in 6 of his last 8 starts. The Orioles are 6-1-1 UNDER their last 8 games vs. a starter with a WHIP of less than 1.15. The Birds are 4-0 UNDER their last 4 games. Baltimore is 11-3-3 UNDER in game 3 of a series and they are 34-16-2 UNDER in the last 52 starts made by Guthrie with four days of rest. Angels starter Jered Weaver has allowed 3 runs or less in 6 of his last 8 starts. Los Angeles is 34-14-4 UNDER in Weaver’s last 52 home starts. The Halos are 7-3 UNDER their last 10 home games. Weaver is 17-4-2 UNDER his last 23 home starts vs. a team with a losing record. PLAY ON ‘UNDER’ (Guthrie vs. Weaver)

Pick: Texas Rangers -146 (Jeff Alexander)
Look for the Rangers to bounce back strong this afternoon following Saturday’s shutout loss. The Athletics are 1-7 in their last 8 games as a road underdog and 0-6 in Gonzalez’s last 6 road starts vs. a team with a winning record. The Rangers are a strong 13-5 in their last 18 games following a loss and 12-5 in Lewis’ last 17 home starts. Rangers have also won 5 of their last 7 at home against the A’s. Texas is an impressive 26-9 as a home favorite of -125 to -175 this season, and I’ll grab the Rangers in this price range tonight.
