MLB Picks, Sept 1st

A tale of two Felix's today on the MLB schedule. One I'll be betting with, one against.

$10 on Seattle (Hernandez) over LA Angels (Santana) -1 1/2 @ +$165
I don't like betting against hot teams, but there are times when a pitcher is so dominating, he can carry a team by himself. This is one of those times. Although the Angels are hot, winning 8 of their last 10 games, the Mariners' Felix Hernandez has been almost unhittable, posting a 3-0 record with a tiny 0.35 ERA in his last three outings. His ERA at home is south of two and Seattle has won 8 of their last 9 as hosts. The Halos counter with Ervin Santana, who is 4-5 with a 6.06 ERA when starting on the road.
$15 on Oakland (Griffen) over Boston (Doubront) -1 1/2 @ +$135
A.J. Griffen returns fron the DL and starts for the A's. Griffen is 3-0 with a 2.42 ERA this season. The Red Sox hand the ball to Felix Doubrount, who has struggled lately, posting a 0-2 record with a 7.01 ERA in his last 5 trips to the bump. Oakland has won 7 straight games and 13 of 15. Boston has dropped 4 in a row and 7 of 10. Heads up the A's have won 6 of 7.
Starting Bankroll           $1,500.00
Profit/Loss                     $ 273.25
Current Bankroll            $1,773.25

Action is considered dead unless both listed pitchers start.
