AAA's 3-GM WEDNESDAY ALL EARLY MLB PASS
Boston vs. Toronto,
07/01/2015 13:07 EDT,
Score: 2 - 11
Money Line: -135 Toronto
This is an 8* play on the Toronto Blue Jays.
These two veterans have steadily been moving in opposite directions over the last two months, in my professional opinion this is indeed the very definition of "great line value." The visitors send the volatile Rick Porcello (4-8, 5.54 ERA) to the hill, most recently he'd give up three runs off nine hits over six innings, earning a no-decision for his effort vs. the Rays on Friday. Prior to that Porcello had given up 30 runs over his last six starts spanning 36 innings of work; note that Porcello is 1-4 with a ballooned 6.13 ERA on the road and a horrible 1-2 with a deplorable 7.65 ERA in all "day" games. The home side counters with Mark Buehrle (8-4, 3.81 ERA) who has gotten stronger as the season has progressed, most recently he'd win his third straight start by allowing two runs off five hits over seven innings while striking out five vs. the hard-hitting Rangers on Friday. Note that Buehrle sports a sparkling 1.75 ERA over his last five trips to the bump and is 4-1 with a 3.25 ERA in all home games to date. I think the writing is on the wall and a lop-sided mismatch is in the cards, lay what I deem to be a very reasonable price on Buehrle and the BLUE JAYS.
