Hot lines: Thursday's best MLB bets

Chicago Cubs at Detroit Tigers (+112, 9) odds provided by betjamaica

The Chicago Cubs don’t score runs on the road.

The Cubbies are a wretched 13-20 away from Wrigley Field this season, with the majority of their problems attributed to leaving their bats back in the Windy City.

Chicago is hitting a meager .235 BA in opponents’ ballparks and has topped four runs just three times in their past 15 road games. The Cubs also have gone under the total in 14 of their past 20 games and have an O/U road record of 13-18-2.

The Tigers do have the ninth-best home offense in baseball, scoring 181 runs at Comerica Park and hitting .274 as a team, but overall are 14-16-2 against the number at home.

Neither pitchers – Chicago’s Ted Lilly or Detroit’s Armando Galarraga - will be unhittable, but look for both to keep runs off the board.

Pick: Under 9

Cleveland Indians at Pittsburgh Pirates (+143, 8.5) odds provided by betjamaica

The Indians have rocked opposing pitchers on the road this season. And the Pirates have been on a roll at home.

Cleveland has the fourth-best road offense in baseball, scoring a major-league best 211 roads away from home. The Tribe are batting .277 BA and have mashed 45 home runs. They are one of the few consistent over plays this season, topping the number in 24 of 37 road games.

The Pirates, however, are killing it at home and post a 17-13 record and hit .291 BA as a team at PNC Park - the second-best home average in the majors.

Pittsburgh has been struggling to score runs, but the majority of its struggles have come on the road as it figures to take a scalp off the Indians.

Pick: Pirates +143

I quote "retards" to make sure no one knows i mean the actual people that are troubled, and am meaning the slang term, which means various other things.

With all the threats going on around here, the people who know this applies to them: They Told Him Don't You Ever Come Around Here Don't Wanna See Your Face, You Better Disappear The Fire's In Their Eyes And Their Words Are Really Clear So Beat It, Just Beat It You Better Run, You Better Do What You Can Don't Wanna See No Blood, Don't Be A Macho Man You Wanna Be Tough, Better Do What You Can So Beat It, But You Wanna Be Bad Just Beat It.

Everyone on here should be doing a little thriller dance tonight, i think this is our generations version of Elvis death. Maybe everyone could have a minute, or a few minutes of silence and watch, he was a great performer, regardless of his extracurricular activities. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AtyJbIOZjS8 I dont know if links work but im sure it could be copied and pasted. Lets all watch at exactly 11:59 on his last day!!!

Also, tagsrock, i managed to keep my beer in my mouth, but that was funny, and great to read. Who is threatening people? I dont want to be threatened, but i understand if it happens. Also where is that liar, Seattle and his bragging about his picks. Remember Seattle you did lose one of your picks tonight, you suck. Ha ha,
