Pick: New York Mets -154 (Rob Vinciletti)
On Wednesday the Free MLB Play is on the New York Mets. Game 912 at 7:10 eastern. The Mets fit a solid system here tonight that has cashed 20 of 24 times. The only thing that makes this a free play is the elevated line. What we want to do is play on certain home favorites off a home favored win at -140 or higher if they won by 5 or more runs with 10 or more hits vs an opponent off a road dog loss by 5 or more runs if they scored 2 or less runs with 5 or more men left on base. The Pirates are 1-14 as a road dog from + 125 to +150 and have lost 23 of 30 games against teams that are under .500. Plus the Pirates are hitting just .213 the past week. Pat Malholm makes the start her tonight and he has an era over 11 the past 3 starts. Tonight he takes on Mets rookie righty Meija. Look for the Mets to get this one here tonight. On Wednesday I have a 100% MLB Dog system and a 23-2 MLB Diamond Cutter Blowout system. Tuesday 6* Total. Congrats to those who jumped on. For the free play take the Mets. RV

Pick: Chicago Cubs +1.5 -135 (Jimmy Boyd)
The Cubs are playing some of their best baseball of the year, winning 13 of their last 20 and 8 of their last 12. Meanwhile, the Cards are slumping beyond what they could have ever imagined in the stretch run, dropping 20 of their last 29. In addition, Chicago has had great success against its biggest division rival, having won 4 straight in the series and 7 of 11 on the season. Chicago ace Carlos Zambrano has returned to form. He’s won his last 4 starts while not allowing more than 2 runs or 5 hits in those outings. Plus, Big Z has always thrown well against St. Louis. In fact, the Cubs are 16-5 in his last 21 starts vs. the Cardinals, including 6-0 in his last 6 road starts vs. the Red Birds. We also can’t overlook the fact that Chicago is 4-0 in the last 4 meetings when Zambrano faces Carpenter. It appears Carpenter is running out of gas. The Cards have lost 3 of his last 4 starts, and he was shelled for 6 and 8 runs in two of those defeats. Take the Cubs on the run line.

Pick: Colorado Rockies -152 (Doug Upstone)
The Colorado Rockies had one of their patented hot streaks going recently; unfortunately they picked a bad time to lose steam. With a chance to climb all over first place San Diego, the Rockies have unraveled like three dollar thru the washer and dryer in losing the first two games of the series and trail the Padres by four in the NL West and Atlanta by three in the loss column in the wild card chase. There failures in the series haven’t been for lack of offense as Colorado has lost 6-4 and 7-6, maintaining their hot-hitting that has led to 10-2 record. In the series finale, the Rocks hand the horsehide to Jorge De La Rosa (7-4, 4.10 ERA) whose won his last three decisions and lowered his ERA significantly. The Colorado left-hander will face the Pads Clayton Richard, who despite have 1.83 ERA in last three outings, has lost twice and San Diego has come up winless in his trio of starts. For Wednesday, look to play on home favorites with a money line of -110 or higher, batting .290 or better over their last 20 games, against opponent with starting pitcher whose ERA is less than 2.50 over his last three outings. Talk about a scalding out of the microwave system, this MLB situation is 69-18 since 2006 and off the hook 13-0 THIS YEAR.
