Justin Verlander: +125
You know what's great about SportsInteraction.com? If you want odds on something, like say who'll win the AL Cy Young award, they'll come up with something in a heartbeat. So we're now handicapping which junior circuit pitcher will walk away with the honor at season's end. In a normal season, Justin Verlander (10-3, 2.38 ERA) would be a shoe in but there are a number of candidates nipping at his heels.
Josh Beckett: +250
To quote LL Cool J, "Don't call it a comeback" for Red Sox hurler Josh Beckett (6-2, 1.89 ERA). How about a marvelous bounce back then? Beckett played through injuries last year but it resulted in his career worst campaign. Now healthy again, J-Beck is reminding bettors why the Sox traded away Hanley Ramirez to get him. The former World Series MVP has been particularly effective against the Yanks, with a 3-0 record and a 0.90 ERA in three starts against the Bombers.
Jered Weaver: +350
Total bettors know all about Weaver's dominance on the diamond. The under has hit in seven of his last eight starts, and that's with oddsmakers throwing out a few 6.5-run totals too. The lanky righty sports a spiffy 0.92 WHIP and a 4-1 strikeout to walk ratio.
James Shields: +650
You got to like the value here on Shields. He plays in baseball's most followed division and if the Rays win the AL East crown or even nab the Wildcard, Shields will get a boatload of credit for the accomplishment. Don't forget, baseball writers, new and old school, both love a pitcher who can finish a game and Shields has six complete games already.
Felix Hernandez: +800
You can't count out the reigning AL Cy Young winner but King Felix (8-6, 3.19 ERA) has some serious catching up to do. He'll probably have to produce better numbers than last season for him to take the honor in succession. It seems like the competition is much deeper then time around.
CC Sabathia: +800
CC (10-4, 3.25 ERA) is always in the mix for the Cy Young but it'll be tough for him to finish ahead of the pack this time around. Wins is normally the category he leads the majors in but Verlander and Weaver are on pace with the Yankees' ace hurler.
Michael Pineda: +800
Pineda's numbers are on par with the other big names on this list but you've got to wonder if the rookie's arm won't tire or even if the Mariners won't start limiting his innings pitched in the second half of the season.

"Pineda has some nice value."
Fargo is coming off a PERFECT 2-0 SWEEP Monday and has his sights set on a PERFECT 3-0 SWEEP Tuesday! College Football is +$5,082 YTD and Week 9 starts with a Tuesday Totals Dominator! Baseball is +$14,843 YTD and extended with the World Series Game One Winner! Hockey is +$7,620 YTD which is added to with a Top Shelf Dominator!
After opening the season a perfect 3-0, New Jersey has dropped its last two games including a 4-2 loss in its home opener against San Jose. This is a good spot for the Devils to bounce back as they haven't dropped their first two home games in regulation since going 0-3-0 in 2009-10. The day after San Jose defeated the Devils, the Rangers took care of the Sharks on Sunday in a 4-0 shutout. That was the second straight win for New York after losing three in a row so it clearly has been pretty inconsistent to start the season. Goalie Henrik Lundqvist is coming off his franchise record 51st shutout but he allowed three goals in each of his last three games following a shutout last season. His save percentage is still just barely above 90 percent at even strength and below it in all situations to an even worse 89.2 percent. On the other side, Devils goalie Cory Schneider has struggled over his last two games but some extra time off will be beneficial as will the fact he has a 0.86 GAA in three appearances against the Rangers, including a 4-0 home victory last Oct. 19. His save percentage is at 92 percent at even strength. The Rangers are 0-6 against the money line in their last six games off two or more consecutive home wins. Play (54) New Jersey Devils
