Lefty is the right choice say sportsbooks

Happy Easter and Passover from OffshoreInsiders.com. Today’s free locks come from Matt Rivers and the Canadien Crew. Rivers picks is on the Atlanta Braves (-110) to New York.

Are the Mets really going to sweep the Braves? Are they? I guess if Atlanta continues to not hit the ball that answer could be yes but sweeps are never ever easy to accomplish and especially against what is a superior divisional opponent.

Freddi Gonzalez’ squad has come out of the gate limping for sure but Heyward, McCann, Prado, Freeman and today’s visitors are still a solid group that will be just fine. I’m not saying they will beat out the Phillies for the division or even make the playoffs in the end but they had a win total in Vegas of 86 games for a reason, a whole 14 more than today’s opponent in the lacking Mets.

We have a pair of southpaws on the bump in Mike Minor and Jonathan Niese and pretty much these guys are fairly even and a toss up in the end. Either can be very good and either can get hit hard so I’ll call that a wash.

This isn’t the lock of my life but it’s never a terrible idea to fade a sweep and especially in a spot such as this one.

Top expert pick on this game: Atlanta

Now to the boy wonders of the Canadien Crew. San Francisco Giants vs. ArizonaDiamondbacks

Odds: San Francisco -114/Arizona +104

This season, the San Francisco Giants are hoping to overcome the sluggish offense that hampered them last season when they take on the Arizona Diamondbacks in Phoenix today.

Arizona is looking to defend their division title and a solid home stand against SF would be a great way of getting that effort off on the right foot.

You can expect to see these two teams battling it out all season, which make the opening stand as important as it gets this early in the season.

On the mound for SF is Matt Cain, one of their most reliable and experienced pitchers. The 27-year-old Cain went 12-11 last season with a 2.88 ERA. He’s developing as a mature, consistent player and is steadily improving. Speaking of steady, he’s averages 12K’s a game his entire career. If last season is any indication, he won’t be giving up too many HR’s. In 2011 he allowed only nine, a personal best. With his new, massive, contract secured Cain is in a position to play comfortably and prove his worth.

Starting the pitching rotation for Arizona is Josh Collmenter, a 26-year-old who saw his first big league start last season when he replaced the struggling Barry Enright. He put up decent numbers and wound up the season with a respectable 10-10 record. Last year he threw 100 K’s in 154 innings.

Against teams with a more potent offense, Collmenter’s tendency to pitch fly balls may be more of a liability than it is against SF. Still, watch the skies when big hitters like LF Melky Cabrera take the plate. Last year he gave plenty of pitchers trouble while hitting .305, 44 doubles and 18 homers.

The Giants took the opener from the DBacks, but lost a close one yesterday. Look for AZ to take this one, too.

The Pick: Arizona +104

Top expert pick on today’s card: The Key POD is lighting it up big time, now 3-1 the last four. There is a team tonight that is 2-30 against the spread under tonight’s circumstances. Yes 30 losses against the spread and just two wins. Independently, our private database says it is 83.098 likely that stat becomes 2-31.
