MLB – N.Y. Yankees at N.Y. Mets 7:10 EDT YES, SNY

The Yankees have taken 10 of the previous 15 encounters with the Mets; however the Citi Field faithful will be jacked to see their cross-town rival. The Metropolitans high-scoring offense was stymied by Jason Verlander yesterday (who hasn’t been?) and will look to restart recent explosion versus the Bronx Bombers. The Mets are drawing support, beginning as +120 home underdogs and being manipulated to +100 or lower. The home team is 33-13 at home after six consecutive games versus interleague opponents and as skipper Terry Collins put it “Everybody gets up for playing the Yankees’….. this is the fun part of interleague play.” 3DW Position Yankees win

MLB – Baltimore at Atlanta 7:35 EDT MASN, SPSO

Any game Atlanta’s Jair Jurrjens pitches, has the potential for an Under total. Yet, who he and the Braves are matched against is the other part of the equation. Baltimore’s Jeremy Guthrie (3-9, 3.93 ERA) is the opposing hurler and his ERA in his last three starts is 4.76 and the Orioles bullpen is well over four away from home, which has led baseball bettors to take the oddsmakers number of 7 and push it to 7.5. The Atlanta pitching staff has been despotic over the American League with seven straight wins and a 1.71 ERA and Jurrjens is 34-15 UNDER in night games. For whatever reason, the O’s Guthrie seems to thrive in the underdog role and he is 13-2 UNDER as an away dog of +150 to +200 the past three years. 3DW PositionPlay Under

MLB– Kansas City at Colorado 8:10 EDT  FSKC, RT

With the Royals 10-24 on the road this campaign, this presents Colorado with the perfect opportunity to start playing better at home and improve on 20-21 mark at Coors Field. Not everyone is convinced the Rockies will take advantage of this possibility, especially in the series opener and Colorado has collapsed from a -171 money line choice to -155 or less. After being called up from Triple A, Juan Nicasio (2-1, 5.08) had a 3.00 ERA in his first three outings, but has tagged since. His last two starts were on the road and he allowed 10 runs and 11 hits through 9 2/3 innings. Colorado hasn’t been able take advantage of being a significant favorite, with a 10-13 record when -150 or higher chalk. But Kansas City could hardly be construed as a good wager with a 24-54 mark after three or more consecutive road games. 3DW PositionColorado wins

The Dodgers woes are both off and on the field and appear to be taking a toll. The cash-strapped club has lost 10 of 15 and could fall to 11 games below .500 for the first time in six years. The Angels on the other hand have won five series in a row and compiled an 11-4 record in doing so. This L.A. conflict was set as a Pick by line makers and baseball cappers couldn’t resist and carried the Halos to -115 or higher favorites. The club from Anaheim has won seven of last nine tilts against the Dodgers and they are 8-1 vs. NL teams allowing 4.3 or less runs a game this season. 3DW PositionAngels win
