1 Unit: Atlanta Braves Over 87.5 (-110) 13-5

1 Unit: Seattle Mariners Over 77 (-125) 7-13

1.5 Units: Cleveland Indians Over 77 (-110) 7-10


Well, Mitchell Boggs did it to us again.  Last time we had the Cards over the Reds and the St Louis bullpen blew up for almost a double digit inning.  Sunday, we had a 2 run leeway going into the bottom of the 8th.  Needless to say, Boggs gave up twice that and we end the week on a losing note.  Onto tomorrow…


1 Unit – NY Yankees at Tampa Bay (Over 7)

The Yankees take on the Rays for their first series of the year Monday.  Veteran CC Sabathia faces off against newcomer Matt Moore.  Sabathia has 29 career starts against TB, going 10-9 with a 3.19 ERA.  Matt Moore is 2-2 over 4 starts with a 5.06 ERA.  7 runs is just too low for this game.  Tampa Bay’s offense is on a good run of late and it’s not too much to ask this injury ridden NY offense to score a minimum of 3 runs.  If each team hits that number we’re guaranteed at least a push.  It always seems when the AL east plays one another, starting pitchers have trouble getting into late innings due to pitch counts.  Hopefully that’s the case tomorrow.


1 Unit – Cleveland at Chi White Sox

Justin Masterson has had quite a solid start to is 2013 campaign.  Tomorrow, he faces off against the White Sox, a team who he threw a complete game shut out against not two weeks ago.  He’s got a 2.46 ERA against Chi town in his career.  Dylan Axelrod on the other hand has had only one start against Cleveland where he gave up 4 runs in less than 5 innings.  At even money, considering the Indians have scored 24 runs in their last 2 games (Chicago has scored 4), I’ll look for them to make it 3 in a row.
