7/18/2014 7:05 PM Reduced Baseball 965 Texas Rangers/Toronto Blue Jays* Under 8 -110
Y Darvish - R Listed R Dickey - R Listed
Risking 2.00 To Win 1.82 (WINNER)
I like the under here. Dickey has been pitching very well lately, his last 2 games he has only allowed 2 runs including a 7 inning shut out vs rhe red hot Angels. Darvish has struggled a bit lately but still been a very solid pitcher this year, the other thing we have going for us on an under 8 play is that both teams have struggled to put up runs lately. With both Aces starting I like the under here.
7/18/2014 7:10 PM Reduced Baseball 969 Kansas City Royals* +124 vs Boston Red Sox
J Shields - R Listed C Buchholz - R Listed
Risking 2.00 To Win 2.48 (Loss)
This is a classic road dog play. We are getting a team with a better record, a better pitcher and a solid plus money play at +124. The Royals are 26-21 on the road compared to the Sox at 23-26, Sheilds ERA 3.65 is 9-5 on the year compared to Buchholz EERA 5.42 at 4-5. Make a play on the road dog here.
7/18/2014 10:05 PM Reduced Baseball 978 Oakland Athletics* -1½ +135 vs Baltimore Orioles
C Tillman - R Listed J Samardzija - R Listed
Risking 1.50 To Win 2.03 (Loss)
I am backing Oakland on the run line here. They have been consistently outscoring teams by 2 or more runs and they have a very solid pitcher in Samardzija starting. Tillman has been hot and cold for the Orioles, the main thing that I think differentiates these teams is the As ability to get starting pitchers out of the game early, its part of their game plan to take a lot of pitches early and work the pitch count, especially in the first game of a series. I like Oakland to get a multiple run win tomorrow.

Adding one more VIP play for today.
7/18/2014 7:05 PM Reduced Baseball 951 Colorado Rockies/Pittsburgh Pirates* Over 7½ -102
J De La Rosa - L Listed F Liriano - L Listed
Risking 1.50 To Win 1.47 (Loss)
De La Rosa 4.56 ERA 10-6 vs Liriano 4.27 ERA 1-7.
This play is another great value at 7.5. Both teams have been batting great, we get another opportunity to make a play on Lariano giving up runs and we are getting a matchup with 2 pitchers who have ERAs over 4.5 in one game with a total under 8. Looking at De La Rosa vs Pittsburgh they are batting him at .321 so that's another plus for the over. I wouldn't be surprised to see the Pirates get Liriano a win tonight but I think they are going to need a 5-4 type game to get it done.
