Pick: Boston Red Sox -149 (Black Widow)
Good bounce-back spot here for the Red Sox who have a big edge on the mound with Clay Buchholz. Buchholz is 10-4 with a 2.47 ERA and 1.242 WHIP this season, and on the road he’s 5-1 with a 1.74 ERA and 1.113 WHIP. This guy has been rock-solid all year for the Red Sox and he has been their most consistent starter. Plus, Boston has been killing left-handed pitching, hitting .286 while scoring 6.1 runs/game against lefty starters. The Red Sox are 10-2 in their last 12 after allowing 5 runs or more in their previous game. The Red Sox are 59-18 in their last 77 interleague games as a favorite. Boston is 9-1 in Buchholz’s last 10 road starts. Take the Red Sox on the Money Line.
Pick: Florida Marlins -190 (Info Plays)
System Play. We’ll Play Against – All underdogs with a money line of +175 to +250 (SAN DIEGO) – cold hitting team – batting .250 or worse over their last 20 games against opponent with a hot starting pitcher- WHIP <= 1.000 over his last 5 starts. This is a 62-6 ML System hitting 91.2% over the last 5 seasons. Josh Johnson is 5-1 with a 0.61 ERA over his last 8 starts, allowing 4 earned runs in 59 innings pitched. Enough said. Bet the Marlins at home.
Pick: Washington Nationals -113 (Tony George)
Lets take Washington today against the Os. I like Livan Hernandez on the mound for the Nats, under a 3 ERA on the season and Baltimore will have issues with him at the plate. Nats off a loss, and the Os are 1-8 after a win, and I look for the pitching and bullpen here to be the edge for Washington today. Baltimores starter has over a 10 ERA in his last 3 starts. Afternoon game. Play a half unit only on my free plays.
Pick: San Diego Padres vs. Florida Marlins Under 7 (Dave Price)
Johnson has faced the Padres twice in his career, and he is carrying an ERA of just 0.64 in those two starts. He has already faced the Pads once this season, throwing a complete-game 3-hitter. Garland has had a lot of success against the Marlins, carrying a 2.14 career ERA against them in 5 starts. When he faced the Fish earlier this season, he held them to just 1 run on 3 hits in 6 innings of work. With as dominant as both of these pitchers have been in this matchup, I’ll take the Under here.
Pick: Los Angeles Dodgers -107 (Jim Feist)
The Yankees are a long way from home, 3,000 miles crossing several time zones, their fifth straight road game. They face a Dodger team hungry for a win, in a pennant race, and their manager is facing their old team. LA veteran righty Hiroki Kuroda has been their best pitcher, with a 3.06 ERA overall and a sizzling 0.95 ERA his last three starts, fanning 23 with 4 walks in 21 innings! Look for a fired up effort from the home team with the defending champs in town. Play the LA Dodgers.
