4-unit Play Take #912 Colorado Rockies over Arizona Diamondbacks (8:40pm EST) Both of these teams are off to fantastic starts to the season and I think they can keep it going. However, I think Colorado has a better chance of winning the division this season. The Rockies have made the big leap this year for two main reasons. First off, manager Bud Black has really set the tone and has the team extremely focused and playing good baseball on the road. Secondly, the pitching staff is maturing and there's a lot of good depth there. The Rockies will be a playoff team this season in my opinion. The D-Backs have a few more holes, but they've definitely exceeded my expectations this season. They have been subpar on the road, and I think they could use one more bat in the lineup. This line is a bit too low, so we're on Colorado.

The O's are 24-12 at home in 2017 and just 11-23 on the road. Tonight they are pretty big underdogs against the Indians, and I think the line is too high. Kevin Gausman has been struggling for Baltimore, but now's the time to buy low. Take the Orioles.

Jose Berrios has been good for the Twinkies this season, but it's only over seven starts and he's not as sharp as he was in his first few starts. The White Sox have been playing much better than what people thought. They still have some impact players and the defense behind the pitching staff has been strong. Play the White Sox today as big dogs.

It's been a tough years for the A's overall, but they have been tough to beat at home (22-15). The Astros have won the first three in this series, but I think this is a close one. Take Oakland as a home underdog.

3-unit Play Take #958 Miami Marlins over Chicago Cubs (7:10pm EST) The Chicago Cubs can't seem to find their rhythm yet. Maybe it's a World Series hangover or a lack of hunger early on. I think the Cubs will get it going soon, but I don't think today is a good spot for them. Jake Arrieta gets the nod today and he's a completely different pitcher than he was during his Cy Young run two years ago. Arrieta owns a 4.64 ERA and 1.33 WHIP in 14 starts and opposing hitters don't seem to be as intimidated as they once were. Miami's lineup has been swinging the bats better of late and they're 15-8 overall in their last 23 games. Jeff Locke goes for the Marlins today. He's a grinder with mediocre stuff at best, but he usually keeps his team in the game. This price is too good to pass on the Marlins.

SERVICE BIO

Doc's Sports Service has been in the sports handicapping business since 1971, and we are recognized as one of the leaders and most trusted names in the industry.

Most handicapping services are one-man operations, but here at Doc’s Sports we are among the most progressive thinkers in the industry, and we have assembled some of the finest experts in the country for our service.

We are one of the few handicapping companies that have withstood the test of time because of hard work, honesty and consistently of providing winners to our valued clients.

Since 1971 Doc’s Sports became famous for our college football Big Ten Game of the Year that won and covered the point spread 19 years in a row.

Doc’s Sports is one of the only handicapping services whose powerful influence has historically moved the official Las Vegas line more than seven points.

At Doc’s Sports we often focus on lesser-known teams and less-popular games as oftentimes less information is available on those teams and games and certain trends tend to stick out and offer value that the average person may not catch. 

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. When you think of it that way our job is really not that difficult since we have more than four decades of experience and know what to look for when handicapping a game. 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 and fundamental handicapping along with exclusive information that we gather from a vast network of contacts that we have developed over the past 40+ years.

At Doc’s Sports we built our name in the 1970s 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 individual full-time handicappers for NBA, NFL, MLB, NHL, WNBA, CFL and major horse races, and we feel we have some of the top experts in the country in these designated fields. We are always in search of the best talent for our team, and what surprises most people is that some of our best information comes from our own clients. 

These are trusted clients that have been not only customers but have turned into friends of ours over the years, and they are able to pick up on key information in their areas.  We love 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 clients the ability to beat the books on a consistent basis.
