EARLY-BIRD FOOTBALL DISCOUNTED PACKAGE ends midnight on Sunday. Don't miss out. The proof is in the pudding including an outstanding 5-year run in the Station Casinos Invitiational, going 289-198, 59% over a 5-year run in CFB & NFL combined.
I went 1-2 last night and lost a 3-dime total (under Tor-Oak) in the 9th. But we look to begin a new win streak on Saturday with a 3-0 MLB card. Grab all 3 plays at my pregame home page.
MLB FREE PLAY FOR SAT: White Sox
The week began on a serious high note with the Angels taking the first two games of a 4-game set in Texas. But in losing the last two games of that series, the Halos' bullpen took its share of hits. Needless to say, the Angels definitely miss injured reliever Scott Downs as a set-up man and even filling in for Ernesto Frieri as a closer when the former Padre needs a night off. There's been nothing wrong with the Halo bats, but they're in a tough spot again tonight - where they'll likely have to score a lot of runs to "keep up" again. Ervin Santana gets another start - but I'm not buying just because of one "ok" start against Texas last time out. Santana didn't worry about conserving energy. He attacked the Texas hitters and finished the game having allowed 3 earned runs in 5 innings. The problem for Santana is that right now, he looks like he has to go "all-out" from the opening pitch to experience success. And unfortunately, the Angel pen is looking shaky of late and need a starter to go deep into a game or two. I expect the White Sox to plate their share of runs, whether it's early against Santana or later against the Angel pen. Meanwhile, the Sox will counter with Gavin Floyd who has allowed only 7 earned runs in his last 6 starts, spanning 39 innings of work. I'm betting the Angels will drop their 4th straight. I'm recommending the White Sox on Saturday. Thanks! GL! - Scott Spreitzer.
While hosting the new show, I "heard it in your voice" how strongly you felt about the Prates / Reds UNDER * last night. It happened to be the only total I was going to play. So, I tacked on extra, and "my man" won't see that $ for awhilr!
Thanks Scott! (Mr. Snow would be proud)
