Going head deep into baseball, as we have SEVEN big line moves for Tuesday. Take a minute to review all the betting trends, our free picks and predictions (216-172-3 run, 26-14-1 of late) to see what we are thinking today. See you back here tomorrow.

MLB (951) COLORADO at (952) PHILADELPHIA 7:05 ET ATT-RM, CSP (side and total)

Philadelphia has fallen 20 cents on the money line (now -145) to Colorado, but why? The Rockies have lost four straight, eight of 10 and the bullpen has allowed 8.5 runs per game in this stretch. Does Jon Gray (6-6, 5.66 ERA) really seem like a better choice against Aaron Nola (7-2, 2.35)? Sure the Phillies offense is struggling, but Nola and friends are 11-1 at home when he's working on five or six days rest. The total has also dipped from 7.5 to 7, which I'm less sure of, but the Phils and Nola are 7-0 UNDER when NL foe has less than .400 slugging percentage.

Betting Trend - 88% backing Philadelphia, 62% on Over
Doug's VPID Take - Philadelphia wins, lean Under

MLB (969) CLEVELAND at (970) CHIC. WHITE SOX 8:10 ET STO, WGN (side and total)

Adam Plutko (3-0, 3.93) will make his fourth spot start of the season for Cleveland. He's been bouncing back and forth from the minors and after his last big league start, Plutko tossed a no-hitter at Triple-A. Baseball bettors remained unconvinced even against the White Sox and torpedoed the Tribe from -170 to -135. The Pale Hose have not lost their last three series (2-0-1) but have been outscored 29-10 in four losses to Cleveland. With James Shields (1-7, 4.92) taking the ball for Chicago, the total has climbed like Guns N' Roses guitarist Slash's reported divorce settlement from 9.5 to 10. With the Indians 32-8 off two straight wins by four or more runs, I'll support them and figure the Sox offensive woes (2.9 RPG in L7) continues.

Betting Trend - 91% backing Cleveland, 68% on Under
Doug's VPID Take - Cleveland wins, Lean Under
