I'm recommending a play on the Angels as they look to win their 4th straight contest.  There are two things we have been able to count on over the past 3+ seasons. 1) Colby Lewis has offered little more than BP when facing the Angels.  2) Colby Lewis has offered little more than BP when pitching at home.  The Angels have tagged Lewis for 52 earned runs, 91 base runners, and 10 home runs in their last 10 games against the righty, spanning 51 2/3 IP.  That's a hefty 9.06 ERA, 1.76 WHIP, and a 1.74 HRs/9 IP ratio, to go along with a .357 BAA.  He's also got an ERA far north of 5 in his last 35 home starts.  He's catching the Angels on a hot streak, especially Mike Trout, who carries an eight game hitting streak into this one.  Trout has "owned" Lewis in his young career.  Hector Santiago should get more than necessary from his offense.  Santiago has been on fire in his last two starts and his team is a perfect 4-0 when he's toed the rubber in 2016. The right-hander is a perfect 5-0 in his last seven starts at Texas, posting a sizzling, 2.23 ERA, 0.92 WHIP, and .192 BAA.  Santiago led his team to a win over Texas in Anaheim on April 7, once again, finding little resistance.  I expect more of the same tonight.  I'm recommending a play on the Angels on Friday night.  Thanks & GL!  Scott Spreitzer.

Heat vs Hornets
OVER 190 -110 Lost
$110.0
Play Type: Premium

I'm playing the Over between the Heat & Hornets on Friday night. Miami had their way on the offensive end in the first two games of the series, sending both games over the total with a combined 214 points in game one and 218 points in game two. Things got defensive after that and we have seen three straight Unders, with Charlotte winning all three. But we have also seen the posted total drop like a rock at the sports books. The Over/Under was 199 for game one and at the time of this post, roughly 15 hours before tip-off, the total is as low as 190. But with this being an elimination game if the Heat lose, Miami will do everything they have to in order to extend their season. This includes fouling down the stretch if they're "in the game" in the late stages. And like games one and two, I expect the Heat to push the tempo a little more than we have seen the last three games. We should note that NBA teams are on a 24-7 Over run if the total ranges from 190 to 199.5, provided the home team is off a win by six or fewer points and the opponent is off a loss by three or less. Tonight's is the lowest set total between these teams in their last 10 meetings. The last time it was this low, 205 points were scored. I'm playing the Over between the Heat & Hornets, my Total Beatdown on Friday. Thanks & GL! Scott Spreitzer.

White Sox vs Orioles
White Sox

I'm backing the Chicago White Sox on Friday night. Baltimore has struggled against southpaws this season, faring a little better than last year's results, but that's not saying much considering they finished ranked 24th or worse in team batting average, OBP, and OPS. I expect more trouble against White Sox lefty Carlos Rodon. Chicago enters on a 14-5 run when Rodon starts against teams that score no more than 4.7 rpg, and the Orioles fit the bill. Mike Wright has been a disaster on the hill through his first three starts of the season, posting a 6.23 ERA and .288 WHIP. Basically, the right-hander has picked up where he left off. Wright made 12 appearances last year, including nine starts, finishing with an ERA north of 6.00, to go along with a 1.57 WHIP and a .291 BAA. He's just not "taking" at the major league level. Making matters worse, in 15 lifetime appearances, Wright has been saddled with a 1.74 HRs/9 IP ratio. His one start against the Sox did not go well. Baltimore is on a 1-5 slide when Wright starts against teams with a winning record and they're 0-4 when he's pitching on four days rest. Meanwhile, besides the 14-5 spot mentioned above, the Sox are on a 17-5 run against starting pitchers with a WHIP higher than 1.30. Finally, while Baltimore's pen has fared well in 2016, Chicago's has been even better, ranked #1 in ERA, WHIP, and OPS, and #3 in BAA. I'm backing the Chicago White Sox, my Shocker of the Month. Thanks & GL! Scott Spreitzer.

Astros vs A's
UNDER 7.5 +101 Lost

Play Type: Top Premium

I'm playing the Under between the Astros & A's on Friday night. Mike Fiers had his best outing of the season last time out against the Red Sox and now faces the right time in the right venue to take another step forward. Fiers has had little trouble with the Oakland A's, especially this particular roster. As reported, he's held the current roster to a .145 batting average in 55 combined at-bats. He's also posted a 3.57 ERA & 1.19 WHIP in his last three starts against the A's, overall. His offense likely won't supply him with much support for a couple of reasons. 1) The Astros rank 25th and 24th in road batting average and OBP this season, respectively. 2) They're facing Sean Manaea. Who's Sean Manaea? He's the A's #2 prospect, a lefty, making his MLB debut. Manaea threw 21 innings for Triple-A Nashville this season, posting a 1.50 ERA with 21 strikeouts. At the same time, I don't expect a lot of backing for Manaea from his offense. Oakland hitters rank 27th, 28th, and 30th at home in team batting average, OBP, and OPS. He's backed by MLB's 8th best bullpen ERA & WHIP. And both staffs should enjoy pitching in a ballpark ranked 26th in OBP and 27th in OPS. Six of Oakland's last eight home games have stayed under the total and we expect another tonight. I'm playing the Under between the Astros & A's, my Friday Dominator. Thanks & GL! Scott Spreitzer.
