Milwaukee Brewers vs. Cincinnati Reds
Cincinnati Reds

  at  BMAKER
in 8h

This is a 1* Free Play on the Cincinnati Reds

Neither of these teams is playing well of late but once the smoke clears at the end of this one, I expect the home side to find a way to get the job done. The visiting Brewers go with Mike Fiers (6-3, 1.78 ERA), who has allowed three or fewer runs in each of his eight starts since getting called up Aug. 9th. The right-hander allowed both runs-one earned- in seven innings of Wednesday's 2-0 loss at St. Louis. The Reds will go with their ace in Johnny Cueto (18-9, 2.33 ERA) who is looking to bounce back off one of his poorest starts of the season where he allowed six earned runs over 5 2/3’s innings to the Cubs. The right-hander has to be liking his chances to get untracked tonight though, the last time he faced the visitors he allowed two runs and three hits while striking out 10 in eight innings of a 6-2 victory  on May 3rd, giving him a 4-1 record and a very respectable 1.93 ERA in his past six starts in the series. The Brewers hopes for a playoff spot took a big hit over the weekend and I think the team will suffer a letdown here. Note that the Reds have been solid at home with a 40-35 mark, while they are also 18-7 in meetings at the Great American Ballpark between these two teams the last three seasons. The Brewers are playing the seventh game of this important nine game road trip and have to be feeling the pressure; Cincinnati meanwhile has been eliminated from contention for quite some time now and would love nothing more than to play spoiler and to put the proverbial nail in the coffin for their divisional rival. Consider the home side and Cueto.

Colorado Rockies

FREE PLAY for 9/23

Colorado Rockies +112

The Key: The Rockies are showing value at this price considering how dominant De La Rosa has been against the Padres.  The Rockies are 13-1 in his last 14 starts against them, and he has held them to three earned runs or less in each of the last five outings.  De La Rosa has been one of the few bright spots for Colorado this season.  He has given up three earned runs or less in six of his last seven starts and 10 of his last 13.  The Rockies are 43-18 in De La Rosa's last 61 starts versus teams with a losing record.  San Diego's Erlin is making his second start since missing four months with elbow issues, and he's had trouble with the Rockies, posting a 7.71 ERA in three appearances against them this season.  Take Colorado.

Dave Price is closing out the MLB regular season on an absolute tear. He is an Awesome 21-5 (81%) his L26 MLB plays, including a WHITE HOT 14-1 (93%) his L15 and a PERFECT 6-0 his L6. His highly regarded "Mound Mismatch" releases are on an INSANE 9-0 RUN, and he makes it 10 IN A ROW with his 7* Tuesday MLB *MOUND MISMATCH*!

Philadelphia Phillies vs. Miami Marlins

Philadelphia Phillies -128

Cole Hamels is the definition of a pro. Even though the Phillies have been out of it for months he continues to pitch well as if they were in a pennant race. Right now he has a career best ERA of 2.47 and has not given up more than 3ER in a start since May 27. He should probably have double his 9 wins.

A week ago he faced the Marlins and was dominant. I am expecting a similar performance again this time out. His away ERA is a nasty 1.76

Good Luck, Razor Ray.

Baltimore Orioles vs. New York Yankees
New York Yankees

1* free play on the #NYY

The New York Yankees took Game 1 of this home series versus the Orioles by a score of 5-0 last night. The visitors may just be going through the motions as they've already clinched the AL East. The Bronx Bombers look good again tonight with a very favorable match-up on the mound. 

Here are my keys to the game: 

1. Pitching - Brandon McCarthy will get the call for the Yankees, and he's settled in nicely since coming over from Arizona. He's been particularly sharp in the Bronx, with a record of 5-1 with a 1.36 ERA in six appearances. He's also pitched well against the Orioles, holding them scoreless through seven innings in the only previous meeting this season. Baltimore will counter with Ubaldo Jimenez, who has surrendered seven runs on eight hits over 8 1/3 innings in his last two starts away from home. 

2. Injuries - Baltimore has been resting some of it's players in preparation for the playoffs, and Nick Markasis and Steve Pearce have both been out of the lineup in recent games due to minor ailments. 

3. X-Factor - Nelson Cruz was 0-for-3 last night, and he's just 3-for-22 versus McCarthy lifetime. 

Selection: This is a play on the New York Yankees (Free)

09/23 07:05 PM EST  MLB   (921) KANSAS CITY ROYALS VS (922) CLEVELAND INDIANS
Take: (921) KANSAS CITY ROYALS
Reason: Your free pick for Tuesday, September 23rd comes in the national League as Kansas City and the Indians battle it out in Cleveland. Kansas City has a fine offense, 5th in batting, and is in a tight pennant race. The Royals are 16-7 in their last 23 road games. Yordano Ventura (13-10, 3.19 ERA) is on the hill, with the team 8-2 his last ten starts. Ventura allowed 1 run on three hits, walking 2 and striking out seven over seven innings in a 6-2 win over Chicago his last start. He is 7-3 on the road with a 3.17 ERA and is 2-0 with a 2.08 ERA against Cleveland. The Royals are 5-0 in Ventura's last 5 starts with 5 days of rest and the Royals are 17-8 in their last 25 road games vs. a team with a winning home record. Cleveland goes with hittable Danny Salazar (6-7, 4.02 ERA), allowing more hits than innings pitched. The Indians are 1-5 in their last 6 home games vs. a team with a winning record. Play the Kansas City Royals.

St. Louis Cardinals

Tuesday MLB Free Play from Doc’s Sports Take #909 St. Louis Cardinals (-130) over Chicago Cubs (Tuesday, 7:10pm EST)  We’re into the final week of the regular season and the St. Louis Cardinals are still battling to win the NL Central. The difference between winning the division and securing a wild card spot is huge, so the Cardinals will certainly be taking these games seriously and treating them almost like postseason games. The Cubs, on the other hand, are auditioning talent for 2015 and they have some nice young pieces that look promising. However, manager Rich Renteria isn’t as concerned about winning as he is about getting certain guys playing time. In addition to the motivation edge for St. Louis, they also have an edge on the mound. It may not appear that way based on the surface stats, but Shelby Miller is better than Kyle Hendricks at this point.  Miller has a 3.68 ERA on the season and is pitching better now than he has at any point this season. In his last five starts, Miller has a 1.09 ERA and 0.76 WHIP to go along with a 21-5 K/BB ratio. He also hasn’t walked a single batter over his last three outings. Hendriks enters this contest with a 2.28 ERA in 12 starts, but he’s been extremely fortunate in the process. He’s only striking out 5.2 batters per nine innings, but his results have been aided by a 79% strand rate and a very low home run rate. Things are also going to get tougher for him as the league gets a chance to see him a little more. This will be his third start of the season versus the Cardinals, so they know exactly what they’re dealing with at this point. The Cardinals are obviously the better team and I think we get some value with the pitching matchup.

Haimo's Thursday Night NCAAF Free Play Selection

**2 Star Favorite Side Play**

The Bruins have not looked like the on the rise team everybody was expecting to start the season.  They've had plenty of injuries to slow them down with QB Brett Hundley being the main one.  However, they play an Arizona State team tonight who does not have the defensive personnel to slow down UCLAs run game.  The Bruins will man handle ASUs offensive line and create turnovers.  Look for UCLA to show up big in this one.

Play on UCLA -5.5 points.

Enjoy.

Los Angeles Angels vs. Oakland A's
Los Angeles Angels

This is a Free play on the #LAA. 

Those of you who have followed my baseball plays over the years will already know that It's very rare to see me bet against a team that has a favorable match-up in starting pitchers, but I think Oakland is way overvalued here tonight. The A's have been brutal lately, even when the bats provide run support, the bullpen has not been able to hold a lead. We saw another example of that last night, as the Angels scored three runs in the top of the eighth, and the tying run was on deck in the top of the ninth with two runners on base. 

Sonny Gray will toe the slab for the A's, and his numbers are better on the road than they are at home. Gray (13-9, 3.28 ERA) has only won one of his last 10 starts, and he was rocked for five runs on eight hits in a home loss to Texas his last time out. He's 0-2 with a 5.04 ERA in four starts in September, and his ERA at home (3.75) is higher than on the road (2.75). Mike Trout is hitting .364 with a pair of home runs lifetime versus Gray. 

The Angels hand the ball to Wade Leblanc, and expectations are that he's going to need plenty of run support. The left-hander sports an ERA of 7.36 in two previous meetings with Oakland this year. There is no doubt that the A's hold the edge on the mound, but I really don't think it's worth the price against a team that they trail by 9.5 games in the standings. 

Take LAA GL,

Jesse Schule

Colorado Rockies vs. San Diego Padres
San Diego Padres

Free Pick on San Diego Padres -

The Padres may be out of the playoff race, but that hasn't kept them from playing hard down the stretch. San Diego has won 5 straight and 7 of their last 8 overall. With last night's 1-0 win over Colorado, the Padres improved to 47-32 at home, which is easily the best home record of any non playoff contender. The Rockies on the other hand fell to 20-56 on the road. Their 20 road wins are 10 fewer than the next worst team in the majors.

The home/away splits of these two teams is enough to back the Padres as a small favorite, but San Diego also has a big edge on the mound. The Padres' Robbie Erlin has a 2.70 ERA and 1.00 WHIP over 5 home starts and a 2.60 ERA and 1.096 WHIP over his last 3 outings. Colorado's Jorge De La Rosa is just 4-9 with a 5.24 ERA and 1.300 WHIP over 16 road starts.

San Diego is 12-2 in their last 14 home games off 4 straight wins against division opponents, 20-9 in their last 29 home games after a combined score of 3 runs or less and 7-0 in their last 7 after 4 straight games without a home run.

There's also a strong system in play on the Padres. Teams who have won 5 or more consecutive, who are a marginal losing team (46% to 49%) against a team with a losing record are 105-50 since 1997. That's a 68% system in favor of the Padres. Take San Diego!

Play - Appalachian State.

Edges - Mountaineers: 16-12-1 SU all-time in this series, including 3-0 the last three years.  Eagles: 1-3 SU home last four as a host in this series.  With the Mountaineers having held each of their last two foes to season low yards, and GSU having allowed Georgia Tech a season-high 536 yards two weeks ago, the points become the play in this friendly rivalry tonight.  We recommend a 1-unit play on Appalachian State.  Thank you and good luck as always.
