Saturday May 28th, 2011

San Fransisco (27-22) vs. Milwaukee (27-23)

As of Thursday, the Brewers have won 6 straight games and carry a 19-6 record at home. The pitching matchup seems to be fairly even. Jonathan Sanchez (3-3, 3.47) takes the mound for the Giants and he'll be facing Randy Wolf (4-4, 3.70). Both pitchers pitched well in their last outing. Sanchez pitched 6 innings and gave up 1 run on 5 hits while Wolf pitched 7 innings and gave up 1 run on 4 hits. Wolf is a career 9-5 with a 2.86 ERA. The Brewers should be a big favorite here.

Take Milwaukee run line -1 1/2.




Pittsburgh (22-26) vs. Chicago (22-26)

This game is dependent upon the Wrigley Field winds. Aside from that, I see the game being a low scoring affair. Lefty Paul Maholm (1-7, 3.65) takes the mound for Pittsburgh. In his last 10 starts, Maholm has only allowed more than 4 runs twice. In his last 4 games, he's pitched 24 innings and only allowed 8 runs. He's gotten no run support from the Pirates offense. Pittsburgh has scored a mere 5 runs in Maholm's last 5 outings. If that doesn't scream under, I don't know what does.

The Cubs bring Randy Wells (1-0,1.50) to the mound. Wells has been on the disabled list and in his only outing of the season, he pitched 6 innings, giving up 1 run on 6 hits. Pittsburgh is a good team for Wells to get the rust off of.

Bet the 'Under' at your favorite sportsbook.


PhilliesPhiladelphia (31-19) vs. New York Mets (23-26)


CitiField is a pitcher friendly ballpark. Jose Reyes and Carlos Beltran have found a second life with the Mets and are both playing well. Mike Pelfrey (3-4, 5.37) will take the mound for New York. Pelfrey pitched very well against the Yankees until it all collapsed in a one inning barrage by the Bronx Bombers. Before that Pelfrey had lowered his ERA from 10.80 to 5.11 in just 6 games.

Philadelphia is expected to lead the division and are currently on top. Cole Hamels (6-2, 3.06) will start for Philly. Hamels has an intense dislike for the Mets and has not allowed over 4 runs in his last 9 starts. He's also went at least 6 innings in his last 9 starts. Hamels has a career 2-9 record with a 4.35 ERA against New York.

Follow the MLB odds boards and look for a good price as the Mets will be the underdogs and upset the Phillies.




Cleveland (30-17) vs. Tampa Bay (26-23)


The Cleveland Indians are the real deal, surprising most of the betting public and fans this season. They face a tough pitcher in James Shields (5-2, 2.00). Shields pitched a complete game 3 hitter in his last outing against Florida. Although Shields is just 1-4 with a 3.83 ERA for his career against Cleveland, he's pitching at home and the Rays should have a decisive edge over Carlos Carrasco (3-2, 5.16). The price might be reasonable due to Cleveland's success this year.

Take Tampa Bay 


Sunday May 29th, 2011


Boston (28-22) vs. Detroit (25-24)

Boston has really stepped it up since a dreadful start to the season. Josh Beckett (4-1, 1.69) takes the mound for the Sox. Beckett has only given up a grand total of 2 runs in his last 30 innings. He's back to the Beckett of old. He's a career 3-1 with a 2.41 ERA against Detroit.

He's opposed by Justin Verlander (4-3, 3.42). Verlander pitched a no hitter a few starts back. He pitched poorly in his last outing, giving up 6 runs and 9 hits in 6 innings pitched against Tampa Bay. Detroit is playing at home but the Red Sox have the momentum and a major pitching edge. The Sox should also be a decent price.

Take Boston in this spot.




Chicago White Sox (24-28) vs. Toronto (24-26)

John Danks (0-7, 4.35) starts for the White Sox on Sunday and nothing has went right for him this season. Chicago got off to a poor start as much was expected of them. They've played better lately. They visit Toronto and Ricky Romero (4-4, 2.91). Toronto has had a poor season but Romero has only given up 2 runs in his last 3 games (22 2/3 innings). With the combination of Chicago's strong play as of late and the Blue Jay's poor play, the value on Toronto should be good. You can take the Sox in this spot with Danks.

Take Toronto ML at home.




L.A. Angels (26-26) vs. Minnesota (16-32)

Minnesota has been awful at home with a mark of 5-13. The Twins start Carl Pavano (2-4, 5.28) but he's matching up against a tough pitcher in Dan Haren (4-3, 2.24). Haren is coming off of a beating against Oakland. Before that, he's pitched light's out. This might be an opportunity for Haren to get back on the winning track. Minnesota's offense is a disaster. They rank at the bottom of the league in various offensive statistical categories.

Take the Angels and the runline. Minnesota is a disaster.




New York Yankees (27-21) vs. Seattle (24-25)


Derek JeeterC.C. Sabathia (5-3, 3.17) gets the start for the Yankees and he's pitched well in his career against the Seattle Mariners. Sabathia is a career 9-4 with a 2.58 ERA against the Mariners. The Yankees have been inconsistent this season but they'll be tough with C.C on the mound. They usually play Seattle well. As of Friday, the Mariners have been on fire with an 8-2 record in their last 10 games. This should be a close game.

Jason Vargas (3-2, 3.86) starts for Seattle. Vargas has gotten shelled in 4 career starts against New York. He's 0-1 with a 6.05 ERA.

Take the Yankees runline in this game. The pitching matchup and previous history is too one sided.




There you have this weekend's selections. I hope that everyone has a profitable Saturday and Sunday.
