As I initiated my detoxification pre-plan for my Vegas trip last nigtht (besides the two glasses of vino), I found myself reaching for a book after two quarters of possibly the worst Monday Night football games I’ve ever witnessed. Sure QB Jason Campbell had some nice moments and looked more confident than I expected, but besides a few exciting spin-moves from his midget WRs (Moss & Randle El) it really was more of an indictment on how far the Eagles have fallen. Philly’s O seemed extremely predictable, especially on 3rd down, while D. McNabb seems more unsure of his abilities than Britany Spears at the VMAs. Of course the Cubs game was exciting, but with my White Sox and D-Rays playing for next season and football fully underway, I can’t get myself to sit thru much more than an inning or two…unless I have some coin riding on it. With that, I’m out early today to study my flag-football playbook for tonight, but of course I dropped you a little baseball knowledge to ensure your gambling fix doesn’t think you’ve gone cold-turkey.
MILWAUKEE BREWERS (-1.5 runs) @ HOUSTON ASTROS
The Astros rookie hurler has only made one start in his career, and that debacle came against the Brew Crew earlier this month. Felipe Paulino lasted only 3 innings and gave-up 6 hits, 5 earned runs, and walked more than he struck out. As for the Brewers, they’ll be sending oft-injured ace Ben Sheets (12-5, 3.78) to mound, and I expect him to look sharp coming off a 3 innings 52 pitch loss last Friday. Milwaukee has won three in-a-row, only trail the Cubs by one game, and have the luxury of playing the worst team in the National League. Sheets is too good a pitcher to let another playoff opportunity slip through his fingers, so I fully expect him to dominate an Astros squad simply playing for fantasy numbers…Brewers by 3-5 runs
