2 UNIT = Los Angeles Angels @ Houston Astros - ASTROS TO WIN (+131)
Listed Pitchers: Blanton vs Norris
(Note: I'm risking 2.00 units to win 2.62 units)

Last night the Astros beat the Angels 7-6 to even the yearly series 2-2. The Angels were predicted to be American League Champions by many but have gotten off to a 11-21 starts, and they are just 4-12 on the road this season. The Houston Astros are 9-24 on the year and 5-12 at home. Los Angeles will send Joe Blanton to the mound who is looking for his first win of the season. He is 0-5 with a 5.97 ERA, .353 OBA, and 1.90 WHIP. Last year he was 10-13 with a 4.71 ERA, .273 OBA and 1.26 WHIP in the National League. The Angels are 0-6 in games he has started this season. Houston will send Bud Norris to the mound who is 3-3 on the season with a 3.89 ERA, .279 OBA and 1.54 WHIP. He has allowed 3 or fewer earned runs against in 6 of his 7 starts and 2 or fewer in 5 of 7. At home he is 2-1 with a better 2.70 ERA which isn’t surprising as last year he was 4-1 with a 1.71 ERA at home (compared to 6.94 on the road). Take note that the Angels are just 2-8 in their last 10 overall, 1-8 in their last 9 games as a road favorite and 3-13 in their last 16 road games vs a right handed starter. The Astros are 6-0 in Norris’ last 6 home starts vs a team with a losing record. The Angels clearly have more talent than the Astros, but talent doesn’t win ball games and Los Angeles is struggling to get any type of pitching right now giving up 42 runs over their last 8 games (5.25 runs per game). Norris loves pitching at home and with tonight’s pitching match up I’m surprised to see the Astros anywhere near +130. I will take them for 2 units.

Oakland A's vs Cleveland Indians Oakland A's
+105 at BMaker
15* AL Wednesday Undervalued Underdog on Oakland A's +105

After losing the first two games of this series to Cleveland, the Oakland A's will be highly motivated for a victory Wednesday in Game 3. I like their chances of getting a win considering the edge they have on the mound in this one.

A.J. Griffin is a much better starter than he gets credit for, going 3-2 with a 3.79 ERA and 1.211 WHIP in six starts this season. He has never faced Cleveland, which is a huge advantage for him.

Justin Masterson got off to a fast start this year, but he has really come back down to reality, going 0-1 with an 8.31 ERA in his last two starts. Masterson is 1-5 with a 10.36 ERA and 2.128 WHIP in six career starts against Oakland. He gave up 19 earned runs over 14 2/3 innings in three starts against the A's in 2012.

The A's are 9-0 in Griffin's last 9 starts when their opponent scores 2 runs or less in their previous game. Oakland is 17-5 in Griffin's last 22 starts overall. The A's are 7-2 in Griffin's last 9 starts as a road underdog. Bet Oakland Wednesday.

Chicago White Sox vs New York Mets Chicago White Sox
-113 at 5dimes
15* Interleague Wednesday No-Doubt Rout on Chicago White Sox -113

The Chicago White Sox have a big edge on the mound tonight. After losing to the Mets 1-0 last night behind a brilliant effort from Matt Harvey, I look for them to bounce back in Game 2 behind Jake Peavy.

The former Cy Young winner has returned to form over the past couple of seasons. Peavy is 3-1 with a 3.37 ERA and 1.125 WHIP in five starts this year, including 2-0 with a 2.18 ERA and 1.064 WHIP in his last three starts. He is also 5-2 with a 3.48 ERA in 10 career starts against New York.

Jeremy Hefner is no match for Peavy. The right-hander is 0-3 with a 4.34 ERA in five starts and one relief appearance in 2013. In fact, the Mets are 0-6 in games that he has appeared in this season. I look for that trend to continue tonight. Take the White Sox Wednesday.

Texas Rangers vs Milwaukee Brewers Texas Rangers
+106 at 5dimes
15* Interleague Wednesday Undervalued Underdog on Texas Rangers +106

The Texas Rangers should not be an underdog to the Milwaukee Brewers tonight. After losing Game 1 of this interleague series to the Brewers 3-6, I look for the Rangers to bounce back behind red hot starter Derek Holland.

The left-hander has been dominant this season, going 2-2 with a 2.74 ERA and 0.937 WHIP over six starts in 2013. While Kyle Lohse is off to a decent start this season for Milwaukee, he is 3-3 with a 7.28 ERA and 1.766 WHIP in 10 career starts against Texas.

Holland is 15-3 (+11.4 Units) against the money line after a loss over the last 2 seasons. The Rangers are 69-27 in their last 96 games following a loss. The Brewers are 0-6 in their last 6 interleague games as a favorite of -110 to -150. Roll with the Rangers Wednesday.

New York Yankees vs Colorado Rockies New York Yankees
+121 at BetOnline
15* Yankees/Rockies Interleague No-Brainer on New York +121

The New York Yankees are showing solid value as a road underdog to the Colorado Rockies tonight. After losing Game 1 of this interleague series 2-0, I look for them to bounce back with a victory in Game 2.

Juan Nicasio is getting way too much respect from oddsmakers tonight. He is 3-0 despite a 4.91 ERA and 1.534 WHIP through six starts this season. Nicasio has also posted a 5.79 ERA and 1.501 WHIP in two home starts this year.

Colorado is 1-11 (-11.7 Units) against the money line vs. an AL team with an on base percentage .320 or worse over the last 2 seasons. The Yankees are 6-0 in their last 6 during game 2 of a series. The Yankees are 4-0 in David Phelps' last 4 starts. The Rockies are 0-6 in their last 6 games following a win. These four trends combine for a 27-1 system backing New York. Take the Yankees Wednesday.
