8* San Francisco (10:15 ET): The Giants lost (again) to the Marlins last night, this time in just about the most excruciatingly way possible. That being blowing a 4-0 lead and giving up two runs in the top of the ninth to fall 5-4. I was on them (San Fran, that is) and if you read my analysis yday, then you know that the Giants also dropped three of four in Miami last week. The Marlins are NOT a good team (at all), so this really shouldn't be happening. Not that SF is a top tier team themselves, but Miami has the worst run differential in the National Leaue right now (-108), thus the fact they are even within 15 games of .500 seems rather fortunate. I'll back the Giants again on Tuesday. 

Just like last night, tonight's pitching matchup is a rematch of the previous series between the two teams. You have to feel sorry for SF starter Suarez last night as it was the second straight time he outpitched Caleb Smith, only to not come away w/ the victory. Tonight, the situation is a little different in that it was the Giants' starter, Dereck Rodriguez that came away w/ the victory in the last meeting, at the expense of Miami's Dan Straily. Rodriguez, making just his third start of the season, pitched better than Straily as he lasted 6 2/3 innings and gave up just two runs. The Giants won the game, 6-3, scoring three runs off Straily in five innings and that proved to be the difference. 

Rodriguez has looked good in two of his three starts so far while Straily has struggled lately, posting a 5.54 ERA and 1.538 WHIP in his L3 starts (all Marlins' losses). In fact, Straily's team start record his L4 starts is 0-4, all of those losses coming to NL West teams (two to San Diego!). Something else I talked about in yday's writeup was that the Giants are a pretty good home team (19-12 overall). Last night's loss was just their second in the last nine games here. Usually, it's Miami's bullpen that's pretty bad (6.05 ERA on the road), not the Giants'. Truthfully, it's pretty shocking to see the Marlins having won six of their last eight games, but half of those wins came by only one run, two come from behind efforts against the Giants. I still feel revenge is in the air at AT&T Park. 8* San Francisco

8* Colorado (8:40 ET): Last night, I played the Mets and that worked out quite nicely as they won 12-2, thus avenging a prior sweep they suffered at the hands of the Rockies (at Citi Field last month). On the flip side, Colorado has now dropped EIGHT in a row at home. But after being a dog last night on the ML, they are favored here and it's easy to understand why. They won't be facing Jacob deGrom this time and as I went through in yday's analysis, he was long overdue for a victory (which he got). Instead, they'll be up against Jason Vargas, who hasn't been anywhere near as effective as deGrom in 2018. At long last, Colorado snaps its long home losing streak here! 

The Rockies do not have a good run differential (-54), so they should probably feel fortunate to even be within four games of .500 right now. They'd certainly been overachieving even more though prior to dropping 13 of their last 17 games. So let's call this what it is, a "market correction." But the woes here at Coors Field are due to end sooner rather than later, IMO. Facing Vargas will definitely benefit the offense, which usually doesn't need much assistance at home. Vargas has a 9.14 ERA and 1.838 WHIP on the road this season, resulting in a 1-4 team start record. His overall numbers aren't much better, though he's surrendered only five runs total in his last three starts, each of them spanning exactly five innings.

Look no further than last night for evidence that the "Coors effect" can have on an offense, even one that had previously been as anemic as the Mets. The 12 runs they scored last night were more than they'd scored in deGrom's previous eight starts - combined. During a disastrous 1-12 stretch that preceded the current three-game win streak, they totaled only 21 runs. I recognize Rockies starter German Marquez has hardly set the world on fire in 2018, but he did beat the Mets earlier in the season by holding them to two runs over six innings, finishing w/ 8 K's and 0 walks. The home run ball has given him trouble recently, but twice in his last three starts he's equaled that season high of eight strikeouts. Bottom line is that the Rockies are due to win one at home and they'll get the job done here. 8* Colorado

Play Type: Top Premium

10* Texas (8:15 ET): The Rangers came to Kansas City and beat up on the lowly Royals, taking the season opener by a score of 6-3. Starter Bartolo Colon earned his 244th career win in the process, passing the legendary Juan Marichel for the most ever by a Dominican-born pitcher. Tonight should prove even easier w/ Cole Hamels on the bump. In what has certainly been a disappointing season so far for the Rangers, the Royals are a welcome matchup as KC has the worst run differential in all of baseball (-139) and dropped seven in a row. Texas should roll tonight behind Hamels as the Royals' woes continue. 

With last night's loss, the Royals are now a woeful 10-27 at home this season. They've lost 14 of 16 overall here in June, including the seven straight, so this is clearly a team you don't want to be caught playing right now. They've been outscored by a stunning 2.3 rpg here at Kauffman Stadium so far w/ opposing hitters batting .285. During the losing streak, their own offense is averaging just 2.1 rpg and batting a collective .183. They've been outscored 45-15 during the losing streak as well. None of this is likely to reverse course w/ Jason Hammel on the mound either. Tuesday's starter has a 4-10 TSR this season and a 5.00 ERA. Granted, he hasn't pitched that poorly of late, but he's winless in his last eight home starts (0-4 this year) and has a 4.07 ERA in nine career starts vs. the Rangers. Furthermore, there is the issue of who will be the closer for this team moving forward. Kelvin Herrera was just dealt yday to Washington and was 14 of 16 in save situations. 

Hamels actually lost to Hammel and the Royals last month, giving up five runs in the process. His team start record for the season is the same as Hammel (4-10), but has generally pitched better on the road where he has a 2.40 ERA and 1.161 WHIP. This will most definitely be a drop in class for Hamels after facing the Astros and Dodgers in his last two starts. Last time out (against the Dodgers), he allowed just two runs (one unearned) in 6 IP. Texas is going for a season-best fourth straight win tonight and will do so w/ Elvis Andrus now back in the lineup. He returned last night after missing 59 games and scored a run. This is the rare situation where the Rangers absolutely deserve to be favored on the road. 10* Texas

8* Cincinnati (7:10 ET): Detroit arrives in Cincy riding a five-game win streak. They swept the division rival White Sox over the weekend, on the road. Note that before that series commenced, the Tigers were just 10-20 away from home this season. They lose the DH from the lineup in this Interleague series (played at a NL park) and that will certainly affect an offense that isn't very potent to begin with. The Tigers only average 3.6 rpg on the road and remember they're already w/o the services of Miguel Cabrera the rest of the way. The Reds aren't the stiffest of competition, but I like them here as they've won four of six themselves and starter Sal Romano has pitched well of late. He has a 1.056 WHIP his L3 starts overall. 

Interleague play has gone very differently for these two teams this season. The Reds are 4-1 while the Tigers are 1-5. Cincy just took a pair of games in Kansas City last week. All of Detroit's IL games came against Pittsburgh, early in the season. Cincy just dropped two of three in the Steel City themselves (over the weekend), but did take the finale, 8-6. Anything close to that kind of offensive production should be enough for Romano, who threw eight strong innings his last time out, allowing just one run (a solo HR) on four hits. That was most definitely his most effective start in awhile, but note Romano typically doesn't allow many baserunners. Facing a weakened Tigers lineup (no DH) here certainly works in his favor and as I already mentioned, Detroit typically doesn't score much on the road.

Matt Boyd starts here for Detroit and the team has won his last four starts. Only one was quality, however, which is telling. All four wins came as a ML underdog as well. Can he really put together five straight wins as a dog? The fact that the Reds are ML favorites is telling. Boyd has won just one decision (in six tries) on the road this season and has a 2-4 team start record. Let's also note that the Tigers are just 14-22 in road games this season. 8* Cincinnati

8* Russia (2:00 ET): I'm kind of shocked that the host nation is available at plus odds here against an Egyptian side that has to feel extremely devastated after losing 1-0 to Uruguay on Friday, as they conceded the lone goal in the 90th minute. Meanwhile, I know Saudi Arabia was the opposition, but no team won its first match by a wider margin than the Russians, who prevailed 5-0 in the opener of the entire Tournament. Let's not discount the slight edge Russia gains here by having an extra day to prepare for Game #2, not to mention the massive advantage that comes along w/ being the host nation. Great value on a Russian side that so far has had a very fortuitous draw. 

Egypt elected not to use its best player, Mohammed Salah, in the opener vs. Uruguay and that may have cost them dearly. I know I was happy as I was on Uruguay. While the Egyptians certainly played their hearts out in that match and probably feel they should have come away w/ a draw, the fact is they were outplayed for 90 minutes. While possession numbers weren't too lopsided, Uruguay had far more shots on goal and better chances. Watching the game, I had been very frustrated w/ Uruguay's inability to score before they finally broke through late. Victory obviously won't come as easily for the Russians here as it did vs. Saudi Arabia, but they'll still have plenty of chances to find the back of the net. 

I said Egypt wouldn't score if Salah didn't play and that's precisely what happened. They are entirely too dependent on him as he accounted for 71% of his team's goals scored during qualifying. Russia seems confident they can neutralize him and the fact he's not 100 percent is a huge help as well. The Pharohs are winless in their L5 matches (0-3-2) and have been held w/o a goal three times. With their top player not fit and playing the host country, this is not an ideal draw for them. Remember, this is their first WC appearance since 1990 and they are also one of the lower ranked teams in the entire draw (according to FIFA). 8* Russia

8* Senegal +0.5 (11:00 AM ET): Please note that I'm using the "Asian Handicap" for this play, which means we win if the game is a draw OR (obviously) if our side prevails outright. I like Senegal getting a half-goal in this situation as I believe them to be every bit as talented as their favored counterparts in Poland, if not more. Group H is perceived to be the most "wide-open" of the entire draw and if there is to be an "upset," I believe it would be here and that could have major ramifications for the rest of the group and possibly have Senegal advance to the round of 16 alongside group favorite Colombia. The +0.5 is a nice luxury to have here. 

Qualifying for this year's WC came fairly easy for Senegal. The Lions of Teranga took 14 points in their six matches (four wins) and scored 10 goals in the process. They didn't lose and one of the two draws saw them give up the lead in the 88th minute. It's a talented group, led by Sadio Mane, who was Liverpool's second best player this past Premier League campaign, behind only Mohamed Salah. It's the first World Cup appearance since that miraculous run to the quarterfinal round in 2002 (which included an opening rd win over France) and while no African side has ever won a WC, I believe this one can certainly make some noise in the group stage.

Poland comes in at 8th in the FIFA rankings, but I have to wonder if that's too high. The team is highly dependent on Robert Lewandowski, whose 16 goals were tops in UEFA qualifying. However, some of the other key players simply did not have impressive seasons w/ their respective clubs. Quite frankly, I don't think it's a stretch to say Senegal is the deeper side here. This will be Poland's first WC appearance since '06 and they haven't made it out of the group stage since 1986. They are likely going to be w/o defender Kamil Glik on Tuesday, which would be a key absence. I see a draw being a likely scenario here (which would be potentially huge for Senegal) and that's all we need. 8* Senegal +0.5

10* Colombia (8:00 AM ET): Already in the first "round" of group play, we've seen a number of the favorites struggle or out-and-out disappoint. Brazil and Argentina had to settle for draws in their respective first matches while over in Group F, Germany was beaten by Mexico. Uruguay and France needed late scores in their games to come away w/ three points, leaving only Belgium (beat Panama 3-0 Monday) as the lone group fave who really performed as you might expect (even then, the Belgians were tied 0-0 at half). That brings us to Group H, which ironically enough was perceived to be the most "wide open" in the draw. Colombia is the betting favorite to win, but still at plus odds. However, I believe Los Cafeteros to be priced far too low for this opening match against group long shot Japan. This looks like a real value play to me.

Now there is a reason for the value and an "elephant in the room" that certainly needs addressing. Colombia is expected to be w/o its best player, James Rodriguez, on Tuesday. Considered to be one of the best players in the entire world, Rodriguez missed a training session on Friday due to muscle fatigue as his left calf had been bothering him. On the short list to win the "Golden Boot" (tournament's best player) here is Russia, Rodriguez won that very honor four years ago in Brazil by scoring six goals (led all players) in five matches. He found the back of the net six times during qualifying for Russia. As big a loss as Rodriguez would be, there are a number of players that could step up and collectively fill the void.

It also helps to be playing a team you beat 4-1 four years ago in Brazil. Japan has its own issues coming into Russia as just two months ago, they sacked manager Vahid Halilhodzic, leaving replacement Akira Nishino ill-prepared for the biggest event in the sport. The Japanese team is comprised of a lot of veteran players, but only two teams in the entire draw are ranked lower in the FIFA rankings (Saudi Arabia and Russia). It's the top tier teams that usually give Colombia trouble and the Blue Samurais simply are not in that class. Rodriguez or no Rodriguez, I believe Los Cafeteros will roll in their WC opener. 10* Colombia

Play Type: Top Premium

8* Morocco +1 (8:00 AM ET): Please note that I'm using the Asian Handicap here where all we need is a draw. Morocco got the proverbial "raw deal" in its opening match, losing on an "own goal" (in the 95th minute!) to Iran, 1-0. I had the Under in that game, an easy winner. I did not have a play in Portugal's opener where they drew Iberian rival Spain, 3-3, as all three of their goals came off the foot of the incomparable Cristiano Ronaldo. Prevailing wisdom here is that a mentally beaten Morocco will be no match for Ronaldo and company. But I contest that theory. What If Ronaldo isn't at the same level we saw him at against Spain? The Atlas Lions can certainly earn a draw here. 

Realistically, Morocco probably needs a win here to have any chance of advancing past the group stage. Therefore, look for them to be a lot more aggressive than they were against Iran. That said, this is still a team that "should have" played to a scoreless draw vs. Iran. Had they done so, they would have added to their already impressive total of recent "clean sheets." As I said in my analysis for the matchup w/ the Iranians, Morocco went unbeaten in CAF qualifying and didn't concede a single goal in six matches. That's really impressive. It should also be stated that while they lost to Iran, the Atlas Lions truly did outplay Team Melli. They had 13 shots on goal (to Iran's 8) and also had possession of the ball 63% of the time. 

The reigning Euro Champs would seem to have a clear path to advancing to the Round of 16. Beating Morocco and Iran would get them there and Selecao has lost just two competitive matches since the '14 World Cup. Both times Ronaldo was injured and did not play. However, it needs to be reiterated how this isn't the deepest of teams. Other than Ronaldo, who can score? No one did vs. Spain and they also conceded three goals. Considering the "stinginess" of the Moroccan side, Portugal won't be scoring as many times here as they did in the opener. Count on that. A goal from the Atlas Lions all but assures us this won't be a losing bet. 8* Morocco +1
