Sunday MLB Free Play from Doc’s Sports Take #916 Detroit Tigers over Los Angeles Angels (Sunday, 1:05pm EST)  We got to the window with the Detroit Tigers over the Los Angeles Angels on Saturday, and we like them again on Sunday for a lot of the same reasons. The Tigers will face their second southpaw in as many days and they are built to hit well against left-handers. Hector Santiago has struggled in his first three starts with the Angels, putting up a 4.96 ERA and 1.47 WHIP. There’s a reason the White Sox unloaded him without hesitation, but the Angels were desperate for rotation depth. The Tigers send righty Rick Porcello to the hill for this one. Porcello has been somewhat of an enigma over his short career, but he’s gotten marginally better in each of his five seasons and is clearly the better of today’s hurlers. He’ll go up against a depleted Angel’s lineup that is missing Josh Hamilton and Kole Calhoun – two-thirds of its starting outfield.  It’s also important to point out that the Tigers have been one of the best teams at home over the last few seasons. They’ve won 50+ games at home for five straight seasons – a feat that no other team has accomplished during that time. Take Porcello and the Tigers to get the job done here

3-unit Play Take #75 Minnesota Wild over Colorado Avalanche (8:35pm EST) The Wild and Avalanche meet for Game 2 of the series after a thrilling first game in Denver. The Wild led a majority of the way but gave up a late goal with 13 seconds left that forced overtime. The Avalanche ended up getting the winning goal in OT, but for Minnesota it was a heart-wrenching defeat. The playoffs are about resiliency and Minnesota has the veterans in their locker room to bounce back. They know that they outplayed Colorado in the first game and if they play the same way tonight, they should be able to even up this series. I don't strongly believe in the zig-zag theory in the NHL playoffs, but this could be a bit of a letdown spot for Colorado coming off of the emotional win. I really think the Wild are better built for the playoffs and still have a great chance to win this series. The Avalanche aren't battle-tested and they made quite a few mistakes in Game 1. Minnesota will capitalize on similar mistakes again in Game 2 and get the victory.

4-unit Play Take #968 Detroit Tigers over Los Angeles Angels (1:05pm EST) Max Scherzer rolled the dice this off-season when he turned down a big contract from the Tigers that would have made him one of the highest paid pitchers in baseball. That certainly took some guts. But Scherzer now has the opportunity to go on the open market at the end of the season, so this could be his best season yet. He comes in with a 2.70 ERA and 1.05 WHIP in three starts, but has yet to earn a win. He has an impressive 25-5 K/BB ratio and has been working on keeping the ball down even more to induce groundballs. With an improved Tigers infield, that should be to his benefit. He goes up against an Angel's lineup that is missing a couple of pieces this afternoon. Josh Hamilton and Kole Calhoun are both on the disabled list for at least the next month. That's two-thirds of the Angels outfield and this team isn't particularly deep. They were still able to score 11 runs yesterday, but it's going to cost them considerably in the long run. C.J. Wilson will make the start today for Los Angeles. He's had a nice beginning to his season, but the Tigers have a lineup built to beat up southpaws. They only have one regular lefty in their lineup so Wilson is going to have his work cut out for himself. Both teams have horrible bullpens, but with these two pitchers on the mound it shouldn't come into play very much. This line is a tad low for Scherzer at home, so we're on Detroit here.

3-unit Play Take #960 Colorado Rockies over Philadelphia Phillies (8:10pm EST) The Rockies pounded the Phillies 12-1 yesterday behind 18 hits. It wasn't surprising as we've been fading these Phillies quite a bit this season and it's paid off. Philadelphia just isn't a team that is all together under new manager Ryne Sandberg. They are a collection of veterans that know they are past their prime and seem to just be going through the motions. It won't be long before Ruben Amaro is picking up the phone and fielding offers for half the guys on his roster. Jordan Lyles will go for the Rockies today and he's been a pleasant surprise so far. Lyles came over in the trade of Dexter Fowler to the Astros, and he has been solid in each of his three outings. All of his peripheral statistics have improved over last season so far as the change of scenery looks to have made a positive change. Kyle Kendrick gets the ball for the Phils. He's off to a good start this season, but we've seen enough of Kendrick to know what he is. He's not going to blow hitters away, but he's good enough to usually keep his team in the game. I think the Rockies lineup is better than the last couple of seasons, mostly because this is the healthiest they have been in a long time. They also have played up the Coors Field advantage very well over their history, claiming the best home field advantage in baseball. Take the Rockies today.

Saturday MLB Free Play from Doc’s Sports Take #965 Cleveland Indians over Toronto Blue Jays (Saturday, 1:05pm EST)  Mark Buehrle goes for his fourth straight win to open the season today in Cleveland. The veteran left-hander is 3-0 with a miniscule 0.86 ERA and 0.90 WHIP coming into this game. While those are impressive numbers without question, Buehrle is getting way too much respect in the betting markets because of it. Buehrle is 35-years old and we already know what he is – a savvy control freak who knows how to attack a major league hitter. He didn’t suddenly get any better in the offseason. He didn’t add a new pitch, isn’t throwing any harder and didn’t discover the fountain of youth. Mark Buehrle is the same guy we saw last season when he finished 12-10 with a 4.15 ERA, and we should expect his numbers to be similar to this at the end of this season. He’ll go up an Indians team that has an underrated lineup, so this could be the game where Buehrle comes back down to earth. Take the Indians today at a line that is below where it should be.

Three of the four meetings this season have gone over the posted number, but we think that there is a very good chance that this one goes the other way, and we certainly think that the bookies gave us a very beatable number here for Game 1 in Toronto. Toronto has been one of the best defensive teams in the league all season, and we think they will be primed for a strong performance in that department here on Saturday afternoon. And considering that this is their first playoff game with this group of players, we think that they might be a bit shaky on offense, at least until they get a game or two of playoff basketball under their belt. Brooklyn has been inconsistent on the defensive end, but this team definitely has the capability of playing strong D. With a couple nights off to rest and prepare for this matchup we think that they will really lock down on D here. The under is 5-0-1 with this group when they have had two days of rest, so the time off obviously suits this team when it comes to defending. Because of the regular season results we are getting a real good number here, and we expect this one to be a low-scoring close game. As long as this one does not go into overtime, we should cash this ticket pretty easily.

The Warriors had a lot of playoff magic last year, and bettors can’t help but remember that. But this is just not the same team this season. And this time they face a very tough task from a pretty complete Clippers team that can make a good argument for being the best in the NBA. And not only are they one of the best teams in the league, but they really hate this Warriors team. They will not hesitate to run up the score on this team late, and that should help protect us if this line is close at the end. But we do not think it will be. Even though these teams split their games this season, each winning both at home, one of those wins in the Bay Area was that real sketchy game where the Warriors were attacking Blake Griffin all game, and they ended up getting him ejected when the Clippers were ahead late (the league later rescinded that second technical foul and stated that he should have been allowed to finish the game). Golden State will probably try to rattle the Clippers again and get inside their heads. But we think this LA team has grown so much since then (not to mention they are prepared for any of these tactics) and we think they are very focused and determined right now. And we just think that they are way better than their opponent here. The Warriors have been very inconsistent all season and have not looked like the team that should have taken a big step forward this year. When Chris Paul went down for the Clippers for an extended period, Golden State had the perfect opportunity to take control of the division, but they started playing even worse while the Clips showed their depth and resiliency by not missing a step with Paul’s absence. That just showed a real lack of hear from this Warriors team, in our opinion. We think the Clippers are real anxious to get off to a fast start here and put last year’s first-round upset loss to Memphis out of their minds. They have had a couple days to get ready and prepare for this one and should have all the players on the team at their disposal for Game 1. Bogut being out for the Warriors really hurts this team. The Clippers should dominate down low with Griffin and Jordan and CP3 driving to the basket. And LA can match the Warriors on the perimeter with its own group of sharpshooters. LA won both games at home this season by double-digits, and we think this one has a good chance of being a bigger defecit than either of those two games.

SERVICE BIO
Name: Doc's Sports

Years in handicapping: 42 years in the handicapping business. Doc’s Sports started offering clients sports predictions back in 1971 and now has assembled some of the finest experts in the country for its handicapping service. We are one of the few handicapping companies that have withstood the test of time because of hard work, honesty (win or lose), and consistently providing winners to our valued clients.

Achievements in handicapping: Since 1971 Doc's Sports has been recognized and one of the leaders and most trusted names in sports handicapping. Doc’s Sports became famous for our Big Ten Game of the Year that covered the point spread 19 years in a row. Doc’s Sports is one of the only handicappers whose powerful influence has historically moved the official line more than seven points. 2008 was a Golden Year for Doc’s Sports, as we earned Las Vegas handicapping titles in both college football and college basketball. In 2009 we were a nationally ranked top-5 handicapper during the NFL Preseason!

Biggest win of the year: Our 10* selection with Chicago over Tennessee on Nov. 4, 2012. The Bears entered the game as a slight favorite and forced a turnover on the first offensive play from scrimmage from Tennessee. The Bears jumped on the Titans early and never looked back, winning the game by a score of 51-20. Chicago was playing outstanding football at this moment, and this was the perfect time to go with a big 10* selection with them.

Biggest loss of the year: The selection was Duke +9.5 over Cincinnati in the 2012 Belk Bowl. This was one of the worst beats in the history of our company, as the score was tied with under two minutes to play, and Duke had the ball inside the Cincinnati 10-yard line. A fumble, 80-plus-yard touchdown pass, and a pick six did us in, as Duke wound up losing by 14 points is one of our worst beats ever.

Systems used for handicapping a game: "Often times, less information is available and certain trends stick out that the average person may not catch," Doc’s Sports says. "Oddsmakers set lines to balance the action, so in reality we're often handicapping against the general public perception, and the general public rarely ever wins long-term. The sportsbooks and oddsmakers have to handicap and set lines for every game -- we simply find a few of their mistakes." Doc’s Sports uses a combination of technical, fundamental and exclusive information that they gather from a vast network of contacts that they have developed over the past 42 years.

Doc’s Sports Unit System:

10* Plays – the strongest plays that we make to offer. These are limited to approximately two per week in each sport and have been a big moneymaker the past couple of years. All 10* picks are clearly marked as such in the promos, and they are must-have selections.

6* - 9* plays – These are top-rated plays available in every sport that we handicap. These are lower priced then are 10* selections and have been high-percentage winners in the past 42 years that we have been in business.

2* - 5* plays – these are our third-tier of plays and usually sell for $25 and are guaranteed to win. Most of our guaranteed selections fall into this group, and the same amount of research goes into these plays as do our 10* selections. They are highly-rated daily plays and have been profitable over the years!

1* plays – these plays usually consist of free selections and can be found on our Covers Expert page for no charge. Doc’s Sports may also release a 1* guaranteed play on a TV Game for only $25, allowing you to watch your wallet fatten.

Favorite team to wager on or against: Washington State in college basketball. The Cougars have an outstanding home-court advantage and always appear to be underrated by the oddsmakers. We use them numerous times each season, especially during the nonconference portion of the season.

Team you avoid when wagering: Michigan State. This is a team that has frustrated us over the years in both football and basketball. Their football team has been unpredictable this decade and wins games when they appear flat and loses games when then have the momentum. We did use them as our top bowl selection in 2012, and they came through for us. But nothing is ever easy with this team. Every year they win games that they should not and lose to teams that they are much better then.

Sports, conferences and divisions the service excels at handicapping: At Doc’s Sports we've built our name by becoming one of the best in handicapping college sports. That still holds true today, as our best results still come from college football and college basketball. We also have full time handicappers for NBA, NFL, MLB, NHL, and major horse races, and we feel we have some of the top experts in the country in these designated fields. We are a worldwide company and have offices in both the Midwest and Las Vegas, and we have the resources to staff full-time handicappers in the above mentioned sports.

Quote: Doc’s Sports loves the feeling of being able to help people make money when facing challenging odds. Good money can be made if one has the connections, and, here at Doc's Sports, we pride ourselves on uncovering the edge that gives the consumers the ability to beat the books on a consistent basis.
