Rockies are struggling right now on this road trip, but I think they take this one easily. Harrang is so garbage to me and I will bet against him any chance I get. He serves up some real meatballs right over the plate, which the Rockies will feast on. Harang is 0-3 with an 8.64 ERA in his last five starts against the Rockies and he already got lit up earlier this year in the same pitching duel. I dont think anything changes. I watched the game that Harrang pitched against the Cubs and if the Cubs had better hitters they would have blew him out. Sometimes it helps the pitcher when he gets shelled so he can look at video and see what he shouldnt do, too bad Harrang is a straight meat head and he was eating bacon sandwiches instead. This is the Rockies chance to take one here in the middle of this struggle.

Rockies +118

As everyone has noticed I really like betting on Arizona even though their bats are struggling. They came through big tonight for me as home dogs. I agree that Matt Cain is a better pitcher, he is on my fantasy team for a reason, but he always gets screwed over and doesn't pitch as good on the road. You have to go 8 innings of shutout ball to secure a Giants win. Their bats are hibernating and will come out to play once Sandoval and Sanchez get back in the line up. Arizona has the potential to really light up the scoreboard, they just leave a lot of RISP. Last night they should have put way more than 5 on Bumgardner. Arizona has really owned the Giants and I see absolutely nothing telling me that should change. Cain got shelled earlier this year for 5 runs and 2 HR's in Arizona. If he gives up anything near that the Giants are done. Cahill on the other hand has fared well against the Giants and knows all to well about their struggles since he used to play accross the bay. Current Giants are hitting .190 off Cahill, but without Pablo, Huff, and Theriot...current healthy Giants are hitting well below .100. Cahill rarely walks people so they wont get many free passes and he pitches well at home. I think he goes 8 strong innings and makes this Giants line-up look foolish. He has allowed four runs over 27.2 innings while going 3-0 Vs. SF. This could be a really big play for me. Love this spot for the DBacks.

Arizona -105

Latos pitched well in his last outing and I think he will be much more confident against this lowly offense. They scored all the runs they are going score and now it is time to snap back into reality. Latos is 3-1 with a 2.43 ERA in five starts against the Nationals giving up two earned runs in Washington earlier this year, which was during his slump. Too many holes in the Washington line up to keep up the hitting that we saw today. The Reds will not be shut down again, this offense has way too much talent to be shut down again. I dont think they lose this game. Current Nats are hitting .212 off of Latos, so it should be a challenge for them. Zimmerman shut down the Reds earlier this year, but this team will not be fooled twice. Even with the last outing current Reds are hitting .288 off Zimmerman.

Reds -122

Leans:

Mets

Indians

A's/Tigers Under

Wow, you are really risking something with COL with the nightcap game.  But your insight does have great reasoning.  BOL to you.

I may take ARI too depending on the day games.

Like the picks, but be careful with the statistics.  You say current Giants are batting under .100 against Cahill, but that's only over 29 at-bats.  That's too small a sample size to accurately pull trends off of.  I usually ignore pitcher vs. team stats unless it's at least 75-100 at-bats. That gives you at least 3-4 games worth of data.

I was going to say this too  -  but I think I bring more negative then positive into EastOakland's threads which I really try not too.  Dude is solid with solid write-ups.


But he prefers the D'Backs and is on 'em quite often  -  no problem in that if you consistently hit the team you favor the most.
