GAME: (955) CINCINNATI REDS vs (956) ATLANTA BRAVES
PICKS: (956) ATLANTA BRAVES
REASON FOR PICK: Play On: Atlanta w/Santana.
Note: When Ervin Santana and the Braves open a three-game set against the Reds Friday evening in Atlanta they will take on the field knowing Santana is in great KW form with 24 strikeouts and 4 walks this season. He has also cashed in 7 of his last 10 team starts at home. With his counterpart, Homer Bailey owning a 1.87 WHIP this season as opposed to Santana's 0.81 WHIP, we recommend a 1-unit play on Atlanta. Thank you and good luck as always.

Just the facts here. Los Angeles is 58-26 SU. Golden State is 52-32. The Clippers boast an astounding 25-15-1 ATS road mark while the Warriors are 19-20-2 ATS at home. Golden State took Game 1 by 4 points but Game 2 was a shellacking by LA, as they won, 138-98. In Game 1, Blake Griffen fouled out after just 19 minutes but came back with a vengeance in Game 2 to post 35 points. Paul and Jordan have been outstanding. GS, Forward, David Lee accounted for just 11 points and 4 rebounds in Game 2 against Griffen, who didn't have foul problems. The Clippers have covered 4 of their L5 away contests while the Warriors are 4-5 ATS their L9 at home. Los Angeles is the top-scoring team in the NBA, averaging 107.9 PPG on 47.4% shooting and has the 5th best defense against FG%, yielding a mere 44.1%. The Warriors have a very athletic squad but Assists, Steals, Blocks, and TO'S all favor the Clippers here. And now that LA has found the game plan to win this series, Blake Griffen will take this game on his shoulders and get the road win and cover. The Clippers are 5-1 ATS their L6 vs. the NBA Pacific while the Warriors are 2-5 ATS their L7 against the NBA pacific. Take Los Angeles. Thank you.

GAME: (961) PHILADELPHIA PHILLIES vs (962) ARIZONA DIAMONDBACKS
PICKS: (962) ARIZONA DIAMONDBACKS
REASON FOR PICK: Your free pick for Friday, April 25, 2014, comes in baseball as Philadelphia and the Diamondbacks meet in Arizona. Think Arizona can get a win at home, which they haven't done a lot of? They can against the aging Philadelphia Phillies, a team that is 13-30 in their last 43 road games. And speaking of aging righty Roberto Hernandez (5.75 ERA) is on the mound. The Phillies are 1-2 his last three starts and the only win was 10-9 over Colorado where Hernadez gave up 10 base runners, 6 runs in 4 innings! The Phillies are 20-42 in their last 62 games vs. a right-handed starter and face righty Josh Collmenter, who has allowed fewer hits than innings pitched. Collmenter surrendered four runs on five hits and two walks across six innings while striking out six Sunday in a loss to Los Angeles. Collmenter almost had six innings of one-run ball complete but Yasiel Puig took him deep with two on and two out to ruin his quality start. It was a fairly solid showing from Collmenter and he should remain in the rotation for the time being. The Phillies are also 16-35 in their last 51 road games vs. a right-handed starter, so grab the home team. Play Arizona!
GAME: (921) OAKLAND ATHLETICS vs (922) HOUSTON ASTROS
PICKS: (922) HOUSTON ASTROS
REASON FOR PICK:
We lost a tough one with the Astros yesterday as they blew a 3-0 and lost on a walk off home run in the bottom of the ninth inning. It was still a successful series though as Houston took two of three and head home trying get some payback following a three-game sweep at Oakland last week. Brett Oberholtzer takes the hill for the Astros and despite them going 0-4 in his four starts, he has pitched much better than that. He has only one quality start but he has not allowed more than three runs in any outing and the three that failed to miss quality status were missed by a total of an inning and a third. One of those games game in Oakland where he allowed one run in 5.2 innings but it resulted in a 4-3 loss. Look for him to continue his efficient pitching. The A's were swept at home by Texas so they bring in very little momentum. Scott Kazmir will look to turn things around for his team and he has been outstanding to open the season. He has a 1.65 ERA and 0.77 WHIP through four starts with Oakland going 4-0 in those games thanks to all resulting in quality performances. This includes the win over Oberholtzer but I do not see this holding up. He made one start in Houston last season while with the Indians and was shelled for six runs in 3.1 innings.
