Money Line: +165 Philadelphia
On Friday the MLB Dog with Bite is on the Colorado Rockies. Game 961 at 8:10 eastern. Colorado fits a solid dog system that plays on road dogs off a home favored win by 2 or more runs, if they scored 5 or more runs, had 10+ hits with 5+ men left on base and no more than 1 error, vs an opponent like Milwaukee that is off a home favored loss and scored 4 or less runs with no more than 1 error. These Dogs are 10-3 straight up and 10-2 if the game is Not an Inter league game. The Brewers have a starting pitching edge with Marcum over Chacin, however the Rockies have a big Bullpen edge with a 3.00 road bullpen era compared to Milwaukee at 6.61 at home. Colorado is alsoitting much better scoring over 6.7 runs per game at night and 6.3 vs Right handers. Colorado has won both Friday games while The Brewers have lost both Friday games. Milwaukee has struggled at the plate hitting just .218 over the past week. Look for the Rockies to move to 7-2 in night games as they are a live dog here tonight.
On Friday the bonus NHL Round 1 play is on the Flyers. Game 27 at 7:35 Eastern. it may see we are reaching down and grabbing them here. However the Flyers are a solid value since they have won the last 2 here in Pittsburgh and are not happy the the Penguins were pouring it on late in their 10-3 win. In fact history supports the play as we note that all time teams on the road in game 5 are 13-3 in this setup. The Flyers have a 147 record when up 3-1 in a series and are 13-7 off a loss of 2 or more goals. The Penguins tied a playoff record with 10 road goals in a game a feat only accomplished by the great Edmonton teams of the 80/s. These Penguins are not the Oilers and may not be able to sustain another game like game 4. Take the Flyers here tonight.
