On Wednesday the Free MLB play is on the Atlanta Braves. Game 910 at 7:10 eastern. The reason we are playing against Roy Halladay here is due to a nice system that plays against the Philles here tonight. What we want to do is play against road favorites of -140 or higher that are off a road dog loss at +140 or more in a one run loss where they scored 4 or less runs, and the opponent also scored 4 or less runs. This system may sound complicated. However it has cashed 5 of the last 6 times. Atlanta should be able to keep pace with the Phillies with T.Hudson on the mound. The Braves also have a bullpen that has a 0.47 era. Hudson doesn’t quite have the 0.56 era that Halladay has,however he has a solid 2.84 era. The Braves are 4-2 vs winning teams,while the Phillies are just 1-3 vs winning teams. Take the Braves as a nice dog here tonight. On Wednesday I have another Cutting edge NBA Power system. On Tuesday we cashed again in the NBA with OK.City moving the playoff record to 7-1. In bases I have a Diamond cutter totals system that averages 11 runs per game. We cashed the bases play on Tuesday with under Tampa and Chicago and the overall run is now 15-2. For the free play its the Braves. RV

The Capitals scored in the final 30 seconds of Game 3 for a 5-1 final; for a number of different reasons though I expect today’s game to be a more tightly contested affair as the Habs fight for their playoff lives:
Washington won 5-1 on Monday night but was once again stymied on the powerplay, going 0-for-7.
The Capitals are in fact 0-for-14 with the man advantage in this series (unbelievably, they haven’t scored a powerplay goal in five games which includes their final two regular season contests).
Montreal had its chances in Game 3, but was turned away behind some great play from Semyon Varlamov; “I didn’t realize when I was watching it this morning that they had so many good chances,” coach Bruce Boudreau commented. “Sometimes the score of the game masks how you played. We thought at the end of the first we were doing pretty good and they came close to scoring about five really good chances to score and Varly was up to the task and played really strong in that period.”
On the other side of the rink: This series is essentially over if Montreal loses tonight.
After wining the opener, falling apart in Game 2, and getting blown out in Game 3, the wind is now definitely out of Montreal’s sails.
Bottom line: To say this is an important game for the Habs would be an understatement; although actually winning this contest is a tall order, I believe the Canadiens will put forth a titanic effort and leave everything they have on the ice.
The penalty kill has been sharp; I’d suggest taking a second look at the “under” in this game.
On Tuesday the MLB Free play is on the Under in the Cubs at Mets game. Rotation numbers 957/58 at 7:10 eastern. The Mets have M.Pelfrey pitching tonight and he has been solid thus far this season. He has won both his starts posting a 1.29 era. Last year he went 8 inning here against the Cubs and allowed jusr 1 run. The Mets bullpen has also been solid with a 1.27 era. The Cubs have C.Zambrano taking the hill tonight and he looks to rebound after a couple of sub par starts. In his one start here last year he went 6 innings and allowed just 1 run. Chicago has gone under the total in 5 of their 6 road games this season and have been anemic at times at the plate this year. The Mets went into last night hitting just .171 with runners in scoring position and have also had problems generating runs. Look for this one to stay under the total tonight. In late phone action we have been tearing it up on a 13-2 run,cashing big with Utah in the NBA and Toronto in MLB and moving the playoff record to 6-0. I have another big game 2 NBA Power system side up tonight as well as a Triple angle MLB play. Jump on as we keep rolling. For the free play take the Under in the Cubs at Mets game. RV
After getting swept by the Angels over the weekend, the Jays broke out of their slump in a big way yesterday, beating up on the Royals by a score of 8-1. With that result, they’re now 8-1 the last nine times that they hosted KC and an impressive 16-4 the last 20. Tonight’s matchup gives them a solid chance and continuing that ‘domination.’
Davies goes for the Royals and he’s been respectable, thus far. In two starts, he has a 4.26 ERA and 1.342 WHIP. He’s 0-1 here at Toronto for his career though and has a 4.61 ERA and poor 1.609 WHIP in two starts against the Jays overall.
Eveland gets the call for the Jays and he’s been dominant, thus far. Indeed, he’s 2-0 with a 1.35 ERA and 0.975 WHIP. Note that he’s also 1-0 with a 3.68 ERA in two career starts vs. the Royals.
With the Royals at 12-33 their last 45 games vs. a southpaw starter and the Jays at 10-2 the last dozen times that they were favored, the currrent price seems reasonable. Consider Toronto.
This is a great spot for newly-acquired Javier Vasquez to get on track for the Yankees. He is up against an Oakland team in which he allowed just 1 earned run in 8 innings in his last start vs. the A’s. Oakland is having troubles scoring runs again this season, putting up just 4.2 runs/game this year. Oakland has scored 4 or less runs in 6 of their last 7 games overall. The Yankees are having no problem scoring runs, which shouldn’t come as a surprise considering they have the best line-up in baseball. New York is putting up 5.7 runs/game overall and 6.0 runs/game on the road in 2010. The Yankees are 41-10 (+21.9 Units) against the money line after 3 straight games where they committed no errors over the last 2 seasons. This team also plays great defense in the field which gets overlooked by their powerful line-up. The Yankees are 41-12 in their last 53 games as a favorite and 13-3 in their last 16 games as a road favorite of -151 to -200. The Athletics are 0-5 in their last 5 games as a home underdog. The Yankees are 11-2 in their last 13 meetings with Oakland. Take New York on the Money Line.
Off a terrible series against the Rays, look for Boston to rebound tonight against the Texas Rangers. The Red Sox will be playing with passion tonight to try and put a halt to their 4-game losing streak. The Red Sox have won 8 of their 10 home meetings with Texas over the last 3 seasons. Boston is 35-11 in their last 46 home meetings with the Rangers overall.
System Play. We’ll Play Against – Road teams when the money line is +125 to -125 (TEXAS) – allowing 4.2 or less runs/game on the season (AL), after scoring 4 runs or less 4 straight games. This is a 38-12 ML System hitting 76% over the last 5 seasons and gaining +25.2 units. Texas is scoring just 3.8 RPG overall and 3.0 RPG on the road this season. They just cannot seem to get their bats going. Bet Boston at home.

Free Pick: Trailblazers vs. Suns Over 204 (Jim Feist)
Phoenix shot 41% at home and the game still landed right around the total. Phoenix is about uptempo and shooting threes, and they had a poor shooting game. The Suns don’t pay much attention to defense and allowed Portland 47% shooting. The Suns’ Grant Hill and Jason Richardson were a combined 1 of 10 shooting in the first half and finished 4 of 21. Jared Dudley, fourth in the NBA in 3-point percentage in the regular season (46 percent), was 1 of 5 from long range. All of which means looks for more scoring in Game 2. Play the Blazers/Suns Over the total.
Free Pick: Bucks vs. Hawks Over 187.5 (Jack Jones)
All you really need to know in this game is that the OVER is 9-0 in the last 9 meetings. Furthermore, the last 9 meetings have all seen combined scores of 193 or more points. Milwaukee has no answer for Atlanta athletically, and the Hawks will score at will on the Bucks again in Game 2. Atlanta has scored 102 or more points in 8 of their last 9 meetings with Milwaukee. With Andrew Bogut out, look for the Hawks to sail over the 100-point mark again and for the Bucks to keep pace with 90 or more as they go to a small line-up.
This play also falls under a system that is 42-14 (75%) over the last 5 seasons. It tells us to bet the OVER on all teams where the total is between 180 and 189.5 points (ATLANTA) – in the 2nd game of a playoff series. With a total of less than 190 and the last 9 meetings finsihing with 193 or more combined points, the clear value is with the OVER in Game 2. Take the OVER Tuesday.
