MLB Picks, August 10th

There are a couple of games on the schedule today that look like good match ups.

$15 on Boston (Buchholz) over Cleveland (Seddon) -1 1/2 @ +$105
Clay Buchholz takes the ball for the Red Sox in Cleveland tonight. Buchholz hasn't lost in his last four starts, posting a 1.80 ERA. The Tribe sends lefty Chris Seddon to the hill for his second start of the year. He had a no decision in his first outing, giving up 4 runs in 4+ innings. The Sox are 22-14 against southpaws this season. Cleveland has lost 11 of their last 13 games.

LVH has the best price on this one.
$10 on Seattle (Hernendez) over LA Angels (Santana) @ +$105

Felix Hernandez will be throwing the horsehide for the Mariners tonight as they visit Anaheim. Hernandez is 10-5 with a 2.63 ERA on the year, but has been even better the last month as evidenced by his 4-0 record and 1.13 ERA. A struggling Ervin Santana gets the nod for the Halos. Santana is 5-10 with a 5.83 ERA this season and is 1-3, 8.73 in his last 8 starts. Seattle has dropped four straight games, and LA has won 5 of the 7 games between the two this season, so I'm only betting the minimum on this one. But I do like the pitching match up and the Angels have lost 6 of their last 8 games.
Starting Bankroll           $1,500.00
Profit/Loss                     $ 295.75
Current Bankroll            $1,795.75

Action is considered dead unless both listed pitchers start.
