Here's a neat trick. Not sure how much sense it makes but....

After Justin Verlander wins, the Detroit Tigers are 21-10 (+1.84 rpg, +6.74 units) at home and 12-6 +7.85 units on the road (33-16 +14.59 units).

Texas would be the dog to keep an eye on tonight. Not sure I can stomach a team though that is 44-43 (avg. line -155, -20.43 units) off of a win (this season).

2-5 off of a win and now a dog (-2.94 units). I dunno about the Rangers, but I kind of like a fade against Greinke with the Angels. He was a freakish 24-1 +22.92 units as a home favorite with the Brewers, but just 3-2 -0.2 units with the Angels. I think trading him and Randy Wolf away were f-ed up moves for the Brewers. Anyways, Milwaukee loved seeing him pitch; now he's up with a-hole J. Weaver in a new city and he's got a history of anxiety. Good luck if you take the Rangers here.

Fyi, the Rangers a 99.9% for the playoffs and could easily not give one about this game. The Angels are 0.3% for the playoffs. In the next to be knocked out spot with Zona. That doesn't make me crazy about Texas. Alas, they ARE a dog off of a win though....

Well Texas took it 3-1; curses for not betting them. They must be playing without pace right now. That'll teach me to get fancy and take a favorite in September.

-The Colorado Rockies are good in this spot. This season, after 4 or more straight road games they are 8-1 +9.04 units coming back home. That's 6-0 +109% roi if they lost that last get away road game.

No. Sabathia is  93-45 (1.36, 67.4%) +11.29 units career as a home favorite. I never bet against him while he's a home favorite. If it wasn't September I'd be betting him.

Historically, one run losses or two run wins occur more for the road team so immediately I don't like the looks of Chicago or Seattle. Why not take the +1 on those two and the +1.5 on Minnesota for more value?

There is logic in that discrepancy: the home team covers the -1.5 less of the time because they'll often have 1 less inning to split up the margin; same token: the dog cover the +1.5 on the road more often because the home team, again, doesn't get the bottom of the ninth to play enough to make the runline worth taking for the home team.
