5-unit Play Take #928 Seattle Mariners over Houston Astros (10:10pm EST) Felix Hernandez makes his first start since late April after coming back from a should injury. The M's wouldn't have brought King Felix back if he wasn't 100% and he was sharp in his last two minor league starts (11 innings, 1 earned run, 13 strikeouts, 1 walk). His best days are obviously behind him, but his arm should be well rested and he won't be expected to go more than five or six innings today. The Astros have the best record in baseball and are coming off of a four-game sweep in Oakland. They've gotten plenty of attention, and I think it's a good time to try and sell high here. Joe Musgrove gets the ball for Houston in today's matchup. He's struggled in his 12 starts, putting up a 5.09 ERA and 1.41 WHIP to go along with a weak 41% groundball rate. The M's lineup has been swinging it well over the last 10 days or so and I think they get enough to support Felix today. Play Seattle in our MLB Game of the Week.

3-unit Play Take #923 Oakland A's over Chicago White Sox (8:10pm EST) The A's and White Sox start a series on Friday in Chicago and it could be ugly. Both squads are sitting in last place in their respective divisions, but this one is all about the starting pitching matchup. While Mike Pelfrey has a better ERA than Jharel Cotton so far this season, I don't think it will be that way at season's end. Cotton is a promising young arm that is learning every start and getting noticeably more comfortable out there. Pelfrey, on the other hand, is an aging vet that no longer deserves to pitch in the league. He has a 4.53 career ERA and the last few seasons have been much worse. Take Oakland today.

3-unit Play Take #929 Detroit Tigers over San Diego Padres (10:10pm EST) We like fading the San Diego Padres and especially when they're going up against a tough AL opponent. The AL has beaten up on the NL this season so far, and there's no reason to expect it to change here. AL Rookie of the Year Michael Fulmer gets the ball here against Dinelson Lamet, who is making just his sixth start of his career. Lamet has an awful 7.50 ERA and has been giving up home runs left and right. Play Detroit.

Best of Luck - Doc's Sports

4-unit Play Take #967 Oakland A's over Chicago White Sox (2:10pm EST) James Shields was one of the worst pitchers in the American League last year. He finished 2016 at 6-19 with a 5.85 ERA and a 1.60 WHIP. He was dreadful. The White Sox decided they couldn't pay him big money for sitting on the bench, so Shields is in the rotation once again. In four starts, he owns a 2.42 ERA this year. But this isn't a turnaround story. Shields is almost as bad as he was last year. He's just been fortunate so far to avoid disaster. The veteran right-hander is stranding an amazing 98% of baserunners and has yielded a .203 BABIP in 22.1 innings of work. Both of those numbers are going to regress hard, and his ERA will be in the 5's again before we know it. Daniel Gossett of the A's will make his third career start today. He wasn't good in his first start, but last time out he was very effective against a very tough Astros lineup. The A's should be a bigger favorite in this one. Play Oakland.

4-unit Play Take #966 New York Yankees over Texas Rangers (1:05pm EST) The New York Yankees are 24-11 at home this season and they'll look to extend that tonight versus the Rangers. Texas was a bit of a fluke last year, and I think we're seeing the real Rangers in 2017. Texas was an unbelievable 36-11 in one-run games last year as they finished with a 95-67 record overall. This season, they are just 4-11 in one-run games and have been hovering around the .500 mark for most of the season. The Yankees offense has been special, led by the young Aaron Judge who is putting up MVP numbers. I like the matchup here for the Yanks.

3-unit Play Take #951 Cincinnati Reds over Washington Nationals (4:05pm EST) At first glance this line looks a little low, but the Reds are better than people think. They've struggled of late, but the offense is potent and they have one of the best infields in the game when you combine the offensive and defensive components. Homer Bailey is scheduled to make his first start of the season against Joe Ross of the Nats. Bailey is sort of a wild card with this being his 2017 debut, but Ross has been a complete mess. This one should be close, so we lean Cincinnati.

SERVICE BIO

Doc's Sports Service has been in the sports handicapping business since 1971, and we are recognized as one of the leaders and most trusted names in the industry.

Most handicapping services are one-man operations, but here at Doc’s Sports we are among the most progressive thinkers in the industry, and we have assembled some of the finest experts in the country for our service.

We are one of the few handicapping companies that have withstood the test of time because of hard work, honesty and consistently of providing winners to our valued clients.

Since 1971 Doc’s Sports became famous for our college football Big Ten Game of the Year that won and covered the point spread 19 years in a row.

Doc’s Sports is one of the only handicapping services whose powerful influence has historically moved the official Las Vegas line more than seven points.

At Doc’s Sports we often focus on lesser-known teams and less-popular games as oftentimes less information is available on those teams and games and certain trends tend to stick out and offer value that the average person may not catch. 

Oddsmakers set lines to balance the action, so in reality we're often handicapping against the general public perception, and the general public rarely ever wins long term. When you think of it that way our job is really not that difficult since we have more than four decades of experience and know what to look for when handicapping a game. The sportsbooks and oddsmakers have to handicap and set lines for every game -- we simply find a few of their mistakes. 

Doc’s Sports uses a combination of technical and fundamental handicapping along with exclusive information that we gather from a vast network of contacts that we have developed over the past 40+ years.

At Doc’s Sports we built our name in the 1970s by becoming one of the best in handicapping college sports. That still holds true today as our best results still come from college football and college basketball.  

We also have individual full-time handicappers for NBA, NFL, MLB, NHL, WNBA, CFL and major horse races, and we feel we have some of the top experts in the country in these designated fields. We are always in search of the best talent for our team, and what surprises most people is that some of our best information comes from our own clients. 

These are trusted clients that have been not only customers but have turned into friends of ours over the years, and they are able to pick up on key information in their areas.  We love the feeling of being able to help people make money when facing challenging odds.

Good money can be made if one has the connections, and here at Doc's Sports we pride ourselves on uncovering the edge that gives the clients the ability to beat the books on a consistent basis.
