8/27/05 Saturday's MLB Pick (3)
Pretty good run we are having. We were lucky to get that over in the
Mariners game but a win is a win. That is what the bookies get for
putting up such a low total for an AL game. There had been too much
hype on the Hernandez kid for Seattle but for good reason. He's got
Three plays for today.
Philadelphia Phillies -110 over Arizona Diamonbacks (1.50 Units)
Count your blessing to get these Phillies at -110. Every game forward
for them will be like a playoff game. They have had so much hype for
so many years and now they are coming up. I am backing Lieber up
again. We went 1-1 this past week on these Phillies even though the
Phillies are smoking it as of late. The Diamonbacks, on the other
hand, suck. We went against them with the Mets and got a winner this
past week. They just cannot hit. In their past 5 games, they score 1
run 3 times and a total of 7 runs in the other two games. They are
also giving up double digit runs. That does not bode well for yet
another time as we see these motivated and talented Phillies make a
mockery of the Dbacks. Remember, the Phillies are 22-7 against the NL
West. Being only 11 games over 500 on the year, believe me, they know
they got to win these games against the Dbacks, etc. Take this game
New York Yankees -330 over Kansas City Royals (1.0 Units)
This is a whole lot of juice here today on this play but we still see
a big performance from these Yankees. I am following the same 112-43
system that we used to back the Cubs against the Braves that lost. It
did not end up counting because the Braves changed the pitcher at the
last moment. Anyways, early morning game on the road, and these Royals
have already gotten the media off their backs regarding the
consecutive game losing streak. The Yankees, on a Playoff roll, only
2.5 games back in the NL East will be playing hard. It also helps to
notice that Sheffield bats .340 versus lefties. Matsui posts similar
numbers. And sandwiched between them is the MVP of that team A. Rod.
Listed pitcher for both teams.
Cleveland Indians -150 over Toronto Blue Jays (1.0 Units)
41-9 system telling us to back these Indians along with the same
112-43 system backing the Yankees. The Indians are averaging more than
7 runs per game in their past 6 outings versus lefties. They are
smoking lefties and with playoffs implications for them as well, we
like backing them to keep up the pace with the Yankees. Listed pitcher
for Scott Downs of the Blue Jays only.
