AL Central Total of the Year - Rickenbach Wednesday MLB 10* Top Play OVER the total in Minnesota Twins vs Chicago White Sox @ 8:10 ET - Jose Berrios has put up surprisingly strong numbers this season. However, he still has made only 7 starts this season and this is a guy who went 3-7 with an 8.02 ERA in twice as many starts as that last year. Also, although Berrios is off of a strong start, he had previously been showing signs of "coming back down to earth" after his "out of this world" start to the season. Berrios, in his 4 prior outings, allowed 11 earned runs on 21 hits and 11 walks in the 22 and 2/3 innings spanning those 4 starts. That works out to a 4.37 ERA and a 1.41 WHIP. Certainly those are respectable numbers but it shows that a Berrios "correction" of his insanely strong numbers from earlier this season is quite likely. The White Sox did face Berrios last October so thiey are not without some experience against the young right-hander. As for the ChiSox starting David Holmberg here, the southpaw has produced decent numbers but has only last 17 innings in his 4 starts. That means another long day for a White Sox bullpen that again saw plenty of action yesterday is quite likely tonight! These teams combined for 16 runs on 28 hits and I am expecting another wild one tonight. The ChiSox have averaged 11 hits per game in their last 12 games! The Twins bullpen has a 5.25 ERA this season which ranks them dead last in the majors. The over is 18-10 this season in Twins games against teams with a losing record and the over is 95-60 the last 3 seasons combined when Minny is facing a team with a sub-.500 record. With the low ERA numbers these two starters have this season the O/U in the 10 range may look high but, as you can see above, there is plenty of justification for the odds makers setting this total where they did. I'll gladly take advantage of the line move that has it a 9.5 in many books this morning. 10* OVER the total in Minnesota

Scott "The Bulldog" Rickenbach Free Pick Wednesday MLB Cincinnati Reds Money Line (+) @ Tampa Bay Rays @ 12:10 ET - The Reds almost rallied for the win yesterday but fell short, 6-5. They did outhit the Rays again (13-8 yesterday) and lets not forget they got the upset win at Tampa Bay on Monday. As bad as the Reds road record is this season they have outplayed the Rays so far in this series and they have the decided pitching edge here. Tim Adleman has rounded into form (to say the least!) as he has a 2.25 ERA in his last 6 starts and has given up only 20 hits in the 32 innings spanning his last 6 starts. As for Tampa, they'll have Erasmo Ramirez on the mound here and he has been heading the other direction. The right-hander has given up 19 earned runs on 32 hits in the 17 innings spanning his last 4 starts. Cincinnati has averaged 10.5 hits per game in their last 4 games. TB has averaged only 8.4 hits per game in their last 7 games. Underdog value here absolutely makes the road dog worth a look in this one. Free Pick on CINCINNATI on the money line very early Wednesday afternoon. Best of luck, Scott "The Bulldog" Rickenbach

Daytime Dominator - Rickenbach Wednesday MLB 10* Top Play Kansas City Royals Money Line (+) vs Boston Red Sox @ 2:15 ET - Boston rolled Kansas City yesterday 8-3 but the Red Sox had lost 3 of their prior 5 games and the BoSox were held to 2 runs or less in 4 of their 5 prior games. As for the Royals, they had won 8 of their last 9 games prior to yesterday's loss. Also, Kansas City had averaged 6.2 runs per game in their 9 prior games. Even though Drew Pomeranz has a much better record and lower ERA on the season in comparison with Ian Kennedy, the Red Sox southpaw has been hit at a .263 clip. Kennedy has only been hit at .205 clip this season and opponents only hit .236 against him last year. The point is that Kennedy has certainly been the victim of some bad breaks this season and, overall, has frequently proven tough to hit. There is significant home underdog value for the Royals in this spot. The Red Sox are only 5-9 this season in road games with a posted total of 9 or 9.5 runs. Prior to yesterday's win, Boston had averaged just 6.6 hits per game in their last 5 games. Prior to yesterday's loss, KC had averaged 11 hits per game in their last 9 games. Grab the big dog value here as the Royals won both Kennedy starts against the Red Sox last season and they make it 3 straight Wednesday afternoon. 10* KANSAS CITY money line

Earliest Cash - Rickenbach Wednesday MLB 8* OVER the total in Miami Marlins vs Washington Nationals @ 12:10 ET - Washington rolled Miami 12-3 yesterday. Each of the first two games in this series have gone over the total and the Nationals are now 8-1 to the over in their last 9 games. Prior to yesterday's loss, the Marlins had reached double digits in hits in 8 of their last 10 games. For the Nats, yesterday's big win marked the 9th time in their last 13 games that they've reached double digits in hits. No team in the majors has scored more runs on the road than Washington this season and team in the National League has hit more homers on the road than the Nats. As for the Marlins, their .269 batting average on the season ranks them 3rd in the National League. While Max Scherzer and Daniel Straily are both solid pitchers, that doesn't change the fact that they're both facing very potent lineups today. The last time Scherzer faced Miami he allowed 5 earned runs on 9 hits in just 5 innings of work. He has allowed 2 homers in each of his last two starts versus the Marlins. The last time Straily faced Washington he gave up 5 earned runs on 6 hits and 2 walks with no strikeouts in an ugly 3 and 1/3 innings outing. Each of Scherzer's last 3 starts against the Marlins have gone over the total and all 3 of Straily's starts against the Nationals in his career have gone over the total. More of the same Wednesday early and we can take advantage of the downward move on this O/U that has taken place this morning. 8* OVER the total in Miami

Contrarian Crusher - Rickenbach Thursday MLB 10* Top Play OVER the total in Miami Marlins vs Chicago Cubs @ 7:10 ET - The Cubs lost 3-2 yesterday and truly haven't been overly impressive at the plate of late. However, facing Jeff Locke should bring out the best in them. They just faced him at Wrigley Field earlier this month and they really forced him to labor in that outing. Overall, Locke has been unimpressive with a 5.79 ERA and 1.64 WHIP in his last 3 starts. Now the Cubs get a quick second look at him and they'll be ready to crush the ball today after a disappointing home loss to the Padres yesterday. As for the Marlins, they were no-hit late into yesterday's match-up against Max Scherzer of the Nationals but then they managed to rally late for the 2-1 win. There is reason to believe the Marlins will fare much better against the Cubs Jake Arrieta. The right-hander did enjoy success against Miami earlier this month but that outing was at Wrigley Field. On the road this season, the Cubs are 3-6 in Arrieta's starts and he has a 5.07 ERA and 1.43 WHIP in those outings. Arrieta has allowed 4 earned runs or more in 5 of his last 7 road outings. His most recent start stayed under the total but, prior to that, 9 of Arrieta's last 12 starts went over the total. The Marlins are 29-13 to the over in night games this season and I expect another one here as both lineups respond after poor performances at the plate yesterday. The pitching match-up today is very conducive to an over. The Cubs lead the National League in homers (28) versus left-handed pitchers. Miami is hitting .263 in night games which ranks 5th in the NL this season. Their high-scoring trending under the lights continues in this one Thursday. 10* OVER the total in Miami

Daytime Dominator - Rickenbach Thursday MLB 10* Top Play Colorado Rockies Money Line (-) vs Arizona Diamondbacks @ 3:10 ET - The first line that came out on this game had the Rockies as a -145 favorite. As of early gameday morning, this line is all the way down to a pick'em price range! I will gladly grab the Rockies in this price range as they look to bounce back off of last night's ugly 16-5 loss where the Diamondbacks had a ridiculous 10-spot in the top of the 4th. Yes, Coors Field can be 'crazy good' for the hitters at times but that was an insane inning. Needless to say, the Rockies will be looking for payback this afternoon. Lets not forget that Colorado had won 6 straight games before yesterday's loss. The big edge they have here is that Antonio Senzatela is used to starting at Coors Field and is a stellar 7-1 this season with a 3.68 ERA in home games! As for the Diamondbacks Zack Godley, he will be making his first ever start at Coors Field. He has made relief appearances here and the Rockies gave him trouble each time. As for the Dbacks facing Senzatela, this will be the first time ever as a starter or out of the bullpen. That said, Arizona's lineup is likely to struggle with his offerings. The Diamondbacks are only 11-11 in day games this season while the Rockies are 22-8 in day games. Look for a big response form the home team this afternoon after last night's ugly debacle. In my opinion, for the reasons note above, the Rockies have a huge pitching edge in this one and I love the extra value afforded by the line move here. 10* COLORADO

Earliest Cash - Rickenbach Thursday MLB 8* OVER the total in Minnesota Twins vs Chicago White Sox - The only thing that can stop us here is the weather. There is a chance of thunderstorms in Minneapolis today but this situation is too strong to pass up on. First off I did lose with the over in this match-up yesterday as the game died out after being 4-2 through 3 innings. Needless to say I am not too happy about it but I won't hesitate to come right back with the same play here. Jose Quintana is on the mound for the White Sox and he's been struggling in day games again this season. This is nothing new as he went 0-5 with a 5.49 ERA in day games in 2015. Then, last year he did have a good overall year but had a losing record in day games. This season he is an awful 1-6 with a 6.45 ERA in day games! Also, Quintana has allowed 12 earned runs in less than 11 innings of work spanning his last two starts at Minnesota. He'll be opposed by Nic Turley for the Twins. The fellow southpaw has been rocked in both his starts since moving into the rotation. Turley has given up 12 earned runs in less than 9 innings of work spanning his two starts. The over is 6-1 in Chicago's Thursday games this season and Minny is 16-7 to the over in home games with a money line between +125 and -125 this season. Look for a slugfest early Thursday in this one. 8* OVER the total in Minnesota

ESPN Smash Pass - Rickenbach Thursday CFL 8* Montreal Alouettes (-) vs Saskatchewan Roughriders @ 6:30 ET - This is the biggest line on the board in Week 1 but the big number is absolutely justified. Don't be fooled just because the Roughriders had a late season winning streak last year. Saskatchewan is still a team in rebuilding mode and let's not forget they allowed 530 points last season! By comparison, Montreal only allowed 415 points on the season. The fact that the Alouettes only went 3-6 at home last season but opened up as a 6 point favorite here tells you all you need to know. The odds makers know what they're doing and this is certainly no mistake. The Als are the much better team on defense and they also rate the big QB edge here as the Roughriders Kevin Glenn is 38 and certainly his better years are long gone. Montreal has Darian Durant at the pivot and he is 34 but he definitely still has more left in the tank than Glenn. Also, Durant lost some weight heading into this season and he is moving well in the pocket. The Riders are going to struggle to contain Durant and the Montreal offense. Remember the Alouettes thrashed them here last year by a 41-3 count. The O/U on this game opened up at 50.5 and Saskatchewan is 1-8 SU (and 2-7 ATS) the past 2 seasons in road games with a posted total between 49.5 and 52 points. More of the same to open up the 2017 season and the Als make the most of hosting the opening night game. 8* MONTREAL minus the points Thursday evening
