Just doing the work;

San Francisco Giants (+123) ~ I may very well be wrong and I expect Cole will do his best to keep the Bucs in it, but they have hit for a combined team average of .185 with only 4 HRs in 11 matinee games. In stark contrast, the Giants have 20 HRs in a dozen day games. I'm not even digging any deeper on this one.

Miami Marlins (-112) ~ Despite the fact that neither team has hit well under the sun, Koehler has been a machine at home (0.90). Marlins -1½ (+180) will be added for a half. 

Los Angeles Dodgers (+128) ~ I am not real high on Strasburg and Haren isn't 4-0 (2.39) by accident. FTR ~ They have been hit a bit in day games, so the Over 6.5 (-120) may be a decent option?

Oakland A's Over 4 (-115) GM 2 ~ Haven't seen the line, but should be about right. List Mariners' Ramirez.

Getting Felix at around -115 in a day game I'll take most every time. Straily's been pretty good, so one swing likely makes the difference in a low-scoring tilt.

Cashner has been a beast at home, but note that in his lone daytime start he didn't fool anyone. You are on your own on this one.....LOL

**Colorado Rockies/Texas Rangers Under 9½ (-115) ~ After the fireworks at Coors expect the scoring to slow. Check closer to game time, but with monsoon winds expected to be blowing in at Arlington.......because so much of the Rockies' scoring comes via the long-ball, I do think it's the Rangers' game to lose.

Beurhle has not been good at the Rogers' Centre, however Happ laid out the perfect gameplan for him the other night. I don't expect it will be low scoring, though. Lee has struggled with RHBs to the tune of a .320 BAA......not good facing the Jays.

Super tough call in Atlanta. Wainwright coming off a beat-down should be money, but lest we forget.....the Bravos are throwing a lefty at him. As great as AW is, the Cards favored facing a LHP is a joke. What to do? Straight pass is likely the best idea here, but the Under may be golden? I usually don't even bother checking anymore, but yes....the Cards are again south of .200 facing southpaws with just 2 HRs in over 250 ABs. Don't take it as gospel, but I do believe the Cards are now 1-8 in their last 9 roadies facing lefties and the Braves are 0-6 in their last half dozen facing RHP. Pick your poison. Unsolicited advice? You need to have a few screws loose to play a side in this one. Tread carefully.......

Although, IMO, Salazar is not a -155 hurler yet, Nolasco has been a total gas-can on the road. 

**Cleveland Indians Over 4 (-115)

**Minnesota Twins/Cleveland Indians Over 7½ (-120) ~ Nolasco has allowed an unheard of .400 BA on the road and I don't think that Salazar can shut the Twins down completely. Ricky's 46 base-runners allowed in 21+ IP is awfully tough to wiggle out of. Amazingly enough, his WHIP is actually LOWER than Salazar's. To be candid, I expect these go over by about the third inning, but stranger things have happened......I never believe that I'm smarter than the oddsmakers.

No chance of backing Peavy at home at this price......I don't trust Leake enough to back, though. Probably comes from a guy now making $5,925,000 that felt the need to boost $50 worth of T-shirts.....LOL

Ramos has actually been decent while the O's have continually misfired vs lefties. Rays or nothing.

**NY Yankees/LA Angels Over 8½ (-120) ~ With the penchant that both teams have for extra bases facing lefties, I cannot see this one staying under this reasonable number.

Pittsburgh Penguins (-105) ~ I'll take the better team who can score with the man advantage. This drought by the Rangers' PP is nothing new vs the Pens. They have been held off the PP score-sheet in four of their last 5 against Pitt. Better squad, better special teams and little juice? I am in.....

With summer in full swing, the prospect of keeping updated records at this point is mute.  Apologies, I just don't have time

Thanks for all the work you put in Bruno.

FYI Regarding your Dodger bet.  Kemp not in the lineup.   Dodgers outfield (ethier, crawford, puig)  a combined 0-for-19 with 10 strikeouts and a walk against Stephen Strasburg.   I do like Haren though going against SS.   Still on the fence on this one but that this stat is too tough to ignore.
