8/13/2014 7:05 PM MLB Baseball 963 New York Yankees/Baltimore Orioles* Under 7 +155
M Pineda - R Listed C Tillman - R Listed
Risking 1.00 To Win 1.55 (Loss)
I am taking the alternate under line here. The line at under 7 provides great value at +155 in a game that should be a pitchers duel . Tillman has looked great lately including his last 2 outings where he has only allowed 8 hits and 2 runs over the last 13.2 innings of work, this includes a shutout of Seattle. Baltimore has been putting up some big batting numbers lately but it has mostly been against struggling pitchers. Assuming Pineda is fully recovered to make his return from the 60 Day DL, I like this to be a low scoring game. I am making a conservative play with only 1 unit with a great plus money payout at +155.
8/13/2014 8:05 PM MLB Baseball 965 Tampa Bay Rays* -½ -110 vs Texas Rangers for 1st 5 Innings
C Archer - R Listed M Mikolas - R Listed
Risking 1.50 To Win 1.36 (WINNER)
I really like the Rays to bounce back tonight after the bullpen blew it for them last night. That being said, I have more faith in Chris Archer than I do the bullpen. Archer is undefeated in his last 4 starts and has a sub 2 ERA at 1.95. The Rays have been fantastic at limiting early runs. They haven't allowed one in the first half of any one of their last 4 games. Texas is starting Mikolas who has only 1 win in 7 games played for the Rangers with an ERA of 6.57. The Rays are also putting up more runs than the Rangers and doing it more consistently. Since the AS break the Rangers are averaging 3.66 runs per game and that includes the 16-0 win vs the White Sox, take that game out and the average drops to 3.13. The Rays have been more consistent and are averaging 4.09 since the AS break. Go with the better pitching and better batting to get an early lead here.
