Opening Day Bases

Today's Picks
Detroit Tigers -115
1 unit Match-up information| ESPN
LA Angels -130
1 unit Matchup Information| ESPN
Yanks/A's over 7.5
1 unit Matchup Information| ESPN

Starting Pitchers:

Detroit Tigers: Kenny Rodgers
KC Royals: Scott Elarton

LA Angels: Bartolo Colon
Seattle Mariners: Jamie Moyer

Yankees: Randy Johnson
Oakland: Barry Zito

Why I like these plays:
-I have been following the Tigers and I like their chances today with Rogers at the mound. KC has one of the worst opening day records in MLB: Royals 13-24 .351
-I like the Angels based on the pitching matchup. If Colon is healthy he is a CY young winner last year. Moyer was 13-7 with a 4.28 ERA
- Randy didn't look like his oldself last year. Zito has dropped his last 5 outings against the Yankees. Both teams can hit the ball so I am going to take my chances on the over for the opening game. 5-3 game seems reasonable.
