Pick: Colorado Rockies -1.5 +113 (Kyle Hunter)
*TGIF MLB Free Play* The Colorado Rockies are on one of their patented September rolls once again. The Rockies have won seven straight games and they are now 39-15 in their last 54 home games. The Diamondbacks are 30-64 in their last 94 road games and they are short handed because of an injury to Justin Upton. Jorge De La Rosa is on the hill for Colorado and that is good news for Colorado backers. De La Rosa has a 3.88 ERA at home this year and the Rockies are 17-4 in his last 21 home starts. Joe Saunders starts for Arizona and he has been shaky of late. The Diamondbacks are just 1-5 in his last 6 starts. The Rockies are 4-0 in De La Rosa’s last 4 home starts against Arizona as well. The stats all point to a big win from the Rockies. Take the Rockies run line here.
Pick: Toronto Blue Jays -125 (Rocky Atkinson)
Tampa Bay is 4-17 this year when playing on Friday while Toronto is 15-6 this year when playing on Friday. Toronto is 37-24 this year when the total is 9 to 9 1/2. Tampa Bay comes in losers of 4 of their last 5 games overall. James Shields is 13-12 with a 4.92 ERA overall this year, 7-6 with a 5.32 ERA on the road and has a 5.82 ERA his last 3 starts. Brett Cecil is 12-7 with a 3.76 ERA overall this year, 5-3 at home this season and 2-1 with a 2.95 ERA his last 3 starts. Toronto has won 4 of 6 meetings at home vs Tampa Bay this year. Cecil is 4-2 with a 3.34 ERA overall vs Tampa Bay since 1997. We’ll recommend a small play on Toronto tonight! Thanks and good luck, Rocky
Pick: Chicago Cubs +105 (Jeff Alexander)
Off back-to-back defeats, look for the Cubs, which are 6-1 in their last 7 games following a loss, to get back in the win column tonight. The Cubs have won 7 of their last 10 in Milwaukee, and they are a perfect 5-0 in Zambranos last 5 road starts vs. the Brewers. Meanwhile, the Brewers are just 3-11 in Bush’s last 14 starts vs. the Cubs. Big Z has been on fire with an ERA of 1.37 over his last 3 starts, while Bush enters with an ERA of 5.21 over his last 3. I’m backing the Cubbies at a nice price tonight.
