Hot lines: Tuesday's best MLB bets

Florida Marlins at Philadelphia Phillies (-215, 8)

When you’re the Philadelphia Phillies, you don’t have a lot to complain about.

They sit atop the NL East, boast what’s undeniably the most talented starting pitching staff in the majors and seem to be living up to their billing as one of the World Series favorites.

That doesn’t mean they’re satisfied, though. Philadelphia’s offense sits 17th in the league producing 4.05 runs per game with a .247 team batting average.

Nobody’s panicking just yet, but the club is definitely looking for a bit more pop from its bats and could be in the market to add another bopper before the deadline - if the price is right.

"We need for those guys to hit just like they always have," Phillies manager Charlie Manuel said of his regular lineup. "We need for Jimmy [Rollins] and Vic [Shane Victorino] and [Raul] Ibanez and all those guys to be the same person they've been in the past. Or close to it."

Until that happens, we’ll keep riding the under – especially with Cole Hamels on the hill.

Pick:
Under

Kansas City Royals at Oakland Athletics (-165, 7)

Kansas City’s young lefty Danny Duffy has come a long way in one short year.

Duffy is getting set to make his sixth big league start Tuesday, which is pretty remarkable considering he actually retired last season in spring training as a 21-year-old prospect who hadn’t pitched above Single-A ball.

He wasn’t away from the game long before getting back at it and making a surge in his development to break through with the Royals this year. He has some nasty movement and a heater that can get up to the mid-90s, but he’s still looking for his first big league win.

Duffy gave up a season-high five runs and eight hits over four innings in a loss to Toronto last week.

"I'm frustrated," he told reporters after the game. "I went out to do my job and I tried. I've got no regrets but I want nothing more than to win for these guys. My frustration is about that. I want to win for these guys." 

With Trevor Cahill struggling for Oakland, we’ll take a flier on the kid at this price.

Pick:
Royals

The wind has no relevance to the total are you kidding me ?? Take a peak at the totals in accordance to the wind and it's speed + direction and you will think differently I assure you. It's the reason some books won't even give totals are Wrigley

thinking of staying put here on just 2 units on cards and 5 on brews. I liked S.F. and Cinci but have flip flopped foe several reasons. s.f injuries..ugh. collmenter in a playoff type of atmosphere may choke and Az lays down tonight. Cueto pitching over his head so far this year and does that trend break up today? Kershaw touched up lately so he is due for a bounceback....all the above worrying me on touching totals. I may just have to jump on Weaver at that price and ride the LAA AGAIN. Sucks you get the LAA bats with the pick but I see value in Weaver at a playable juice here. no crazy 22 unit play just 1/2 unit here i think. Weaver is the better pitcher in this match up and can make meager support stand up more so than Fister. The under may be a good value of course but think i sticking with the Weav....BOL TO ALL

Cueto is dealing and Kershaw has been shaky and the REDS like to pound lefties. Anyone like CINCY at +120 ???....................................................................There is a good wind blowing in from left (12 mph) at Coors field and both starters are pitching well so the U 10 looks tempting to me. Oh and one of the teams is SD....................................................................Thinking U or SEA at +$ as well.

i like cincy also DDH. Cueto has been lights out averaging 7.3ip last 3 with a 1.64era while going 1-1.Anytime Cincy has an advantage or its equal in the pitching mathcup,I pound them due to the fact that their lineup is usually better than their opponents.In this case, way better than the Dodgers lineup...

Weird. Dodgers just outscored them in 2 out of 3 in Cincy last week. Dodgers to Reds offensive numbers are a bit skewed. Dodger division has 3 of top pitching parks in league (LA, SD & SF). Reds home park is a joke. Only STL would be considered a non-hitters park in Central division. Houst, Pitt, Milw & Wrigley all offensive parks.
