No day is easy, but maybe it's just me noticing today seems to have a lot of games leaning to one team?
1. A's vs Yankeees: Yankees just own this series
2. Mariners vs Red Sox: 12 game losers vs one of the best teams and pitcher?
3. Rays vs Royals: One of hottest pitchers vs weak team.
4. Brewers vs Giants: Bad road team vs one of league's best home pitcher?
5. White Sox vs Indians: A pitcher who is 8-1 with a 2.70 ERA in 13 games lifetime vs a banged up team.

I've started betting baseball this season, while the start was rough, and inter league screwed me time to time. I've been starting to do better and getting a feel to capping baseball. I'm just worried about tomorrow. I feel like it'd be a waste not to take Mets and Yankees tomorrow. I'd like to know what the covers community thoughts are.
I know Marlins have been hot going 8-2 in the last 10 games. They've been putting up runs. However Marlins are starting Hensley tomorrow who hasn't started a game in 3 seasons since he was on the Padres. Even ESPN forecast has him rated a solid 10 and while rating Capuano a 5. It's not like Mets haven't been able to put up runs, they pounded Hamel and put up late 5 runs in the final game vs. Phillies. While Capuano isn't hasn't been awesome, he's look good time to time. He's also 4-2 with a 3.02 ERA in eight career starts versus Florida. I've even looked at Dunkle Report, who picked the Marlins.
A.J. sure hasn't in the past playing on Blue Jays and Marlins. A.J. used to own the Rays 5-0 with a 2.08 ERA in his first six starts. A.J. just hasn't been able to beat them after joining the Yankees, going 0-4 with a 7.83 ERA in his last five starts. This next outing seems like he's best chance to beat the Rays finally. After Ray's using 9 relief pitchers today. I don't even know who Madden has planned to use tomorrow for the bullpen. While I don't think Ray's Cobb is a bad pitcher, and hone... [More]
