Cappers Picks QKeymaster
Washington Nationals vs. New York Mets
Play is on the under in the Washington At New York game. Rotation numbers 907/908 at 7:10 eastern. Washington has a day off for this one and catch the Mets with no rest off a long road trip where they had 3 games postponed and were playing ball with the temperature hovering in the teens, in games they did play. This is a rough spot for the Mets as far as scoring goes as they have to face S. Strasburg who is coming off a tough start last out. Strasburg has allowed just 1 earned run in 13 innings here. He will oppose Quickly developing Matt Harvey who has been lights out in his 3 starts this season. Harvey has gone under in 4 of his 5 home starts allowing just 5 earned runs in 31 innings. He went 5 here last season against The Nationals allowing just one run. He has an 0.82 era and has 25 strikeouts in 22 innings as his velocity has stayed strong even in the 7th inning at 97 mph. Reminding some of a young Justin Verlander. In the series 12 of the last 15 here have stayed under and with an anticipated pitching duel, and the fact that home dogs like the Mets have gone under 10 of 12 times since 2004 off a road dog loss vs an opponent off a road favored win we will back the under here tonight.
Play: Total: 6.5/-120 Under
New York Yankees (9-5) vs. Toronto Blue Jays(7-10)
The Yanks are riding a 3 game winning streak while the Jays are coming off of 2 straight losses. The Yankees are 7-3 over the last 10 games and looking to build momentum.
The Yankees will be starting veteran pitcher Andy Pettite, who is 2-0 this season with a 1.20 ERA. The aging Pettite has proven that he is still a force to be reckoned with.
Yankees are 7-1 in their last 8 overall.
Yankees are 5-2 in the last 7 meetings.
Yanks have huge pitching advantage as veteran Andy Petite starts the year 3-0. Yanks lineup has not done much so far this seaosn but Petite won’t need much support. Final Score Prediction, NYY win 4-2.
Pick: NY Yankees ML +105 4 ****ADD EXTRA $ 25.00
Detroit Tigers (9-6) vs. LA Angels (4-10)
The records of these two teams, although the season is early reveals that Detroit is playing at a higher level than the Angels and they are on a four game winning streak. The Angels are coming off their second loss in a row. Anibal Sanchez will be starting for the Tigers and he is 2-0 this season with 21 strikeouts and a 1.42 ERA. Tommy Hanson will be the starter for the Angels. Hanson is 1-1 on the season with only 6 strikeouts and a 6.55 ERA. The Angels will definitely need their bats to get hot tonight to provide the support Hanson will need to win this game. I like this game a lot and Detroit is playing awesome Ball!! For second year in a row Angels have been terrible to start season and don’t see that changing against really good Tigers. Tigers have advantage on mound as Sachez has performed much better than the Angels Hanson. Final Score Prediction, Detroit wins 5-2
Pick: Detroit ML-108
