Score: 1 - 3
Total: -125/+8 Under
Braves -142 3.5* MLB POD The Braves are ranked 6th in OPS and 3rd in ERA during day games where they are 15-10 while the Diamondbacks are 21st and 19th. Arizona also sends Trevor Cahill to the mound for just his 2nd road start on 4 days rest all year long. Over his last 4 starts on 4 days rest he posts a 7.71 ERA and in his 2 career starts vs. the Braves he's allowed 8 ER in just 10.2 IP while giving up 3 HR. The Braves are an amazing 43-9 whent hey hit a HR this year and they have the leagues best home record where they have beat the Diamondbacks 8 of their last 9 visits. Cahill has not pitched on the road posting a 4.74 ERA while Maholm has been great 1.80 ERA on the year at home and comes into this game on 6 days rest and is supported by the best bullpen in baseball that posts a 2.17 ERA at home. Arizona is scoring just 2.90 runs per 9 on the road vs. LHP so this is a good match up for the Braves with plenty of value at -142.
U8 DET/TB -120 2* This was an intense extra inning game yesterday with us getting a loss as we backed the Tigers, but after Fernando Rodney threw at MIguel Cabrera I know we would get some value here on Sunday. The Tigers will most certainly return the favor and the hitters today should be a little tense. Also both starters have had success against opposing teams with both having 4 career starts. Porcello posts a 2.33 ERA in 4 career starts vs. the Rays who are without Longoria again and scoring just 2.84 runs per 9 over their last 10 while Hellickson posts a 1.95 ERA vs. the Tigers who really are not the same during the day and road games offensively.
