Pick: Cleveland Indians -113 (Bryan Leonard)
The Indians just faced Scott Kazmir last week and he shut them down allowing a single run in 6 innings of work. But that has been the exception for Kazmir this season as he enters play with a whopping 6.09 ERA on the road. Cleveland had made a living out of pounding the veteran before that start. They had scored 17 earned runs in his previous 13.1 innings against the Tribe. Now after seeing the lefty just last week we expect another beating at the hands of the Tribe. Cleveland has won 4 of the last 7 meetings including 3 of 6 this year in Anaheim. This is actually the first time this season that the Angels have traveled to Cleveland. Los Angeles is just 10-22 their last 32 on the road, and as we have mentioned in the past this is a veteran team that is used to the postseason. They can’t be too excited to play these meaningless late season road games.
Pick: Philadelphia Phillies -147 (Jimmy Boyd)
Adalberto Mendez shut the Phillies down in his MLB debut last week, but I don’t expect his second outing against the NL East leaders to go as smoothly. Now that the Phillies have seen him, I fully expect them to hit him. Philly has won 15 of its last 18 on the road against the Marlins, including 6 of 7 this year, and it should be in good hands with Cole Hamels, who enters in top form. The southpaw hasn’t given up a run in his last 25 innings of work. The Phillies are a dominant 10-1 in their last 11 road games vs. a team with a winning record, and I expect them to build on this trend tonight. Take Philly.
Pick: Milwaukee Brewers +100 (Rob Vinciletti)
On Tuesday the MLB Free play is on the Milwaukee Brewers. Game 959 at 8:05 eastern. Houston qualifies in a negative system here tonight that pertains to certain home favorites off a home favored win, if they scored 4 or less runs with 10 more hits and 10 or more men left on base if the total was 8 or less and the opponent tonight is off a road dog loss and scored 2 or less runs. Home favorites in this role are several games under .500. The Brewers are a live dog here tonight. They average 5 runs per game in road games this year as well. On the mound they C. Capuano tonight. Capuano has been real good of late and has allowed just 2 runs in 12 innings of work as he finally appears to be healthy from all the injuries. B. Norris of Houston has been disappointing this season with a 4.90 era. Over his last 3 starts he has a horrendous 6.06 era. Look for Milwaukee to get the win tonight. On the Tuesday late phone card I have the 6* MLB Second half total of the year form a 100% totals system that averages nearly 14 runs per game. I also have a secondary totals play in AL action that has cashed 14 of 16 times and has several high end power angles attached. Monday card swept MLB and NFL. Jump on and cash big tonight. For the free play take the Brewers. RV
Pick: Chicago White Sox -109 (Jeff Alexander)
It’s now or never for the White Sox if they hope to catch the Twins in the AL Central race. I don’t think they’ll be able to catch Minnesota, but they’ll fight hard to make it interesting. They’ll start with a win in this series opener. The Sox are in good hands with Danks, who is carrying an ERA of 1.29 in two home starts against the Twins this season. Plus, the White Sox are 5-2 in Danks’ last 7 home starts vs. Minnesota. Liriano is having a sensational season, but he has been susceptible on the road, where he is carrying a 4.16 ERA. He has also been susceptible against the White Sox, carrying an ERA of 6.23 in 7 career starts against them. It is also worth noting that the Twins are only 11-24 in their last 35 games as a road underdog and 33-56 in road games against left-handed starters over the last 3 seasons. Take the Sox.
