Pelicans vs Magic

7:00 PM EST
Rotation # 553
Pelicans -8.5 over Magic (win)
The Magic have been a bad offensive team all year and at the trade deadline got rid of their entire team just about.  The Pelicans have a good offense and should score at will tonight against a team that just has not played enough games with each other.  This is a must win game for New Orleans and I just can’t see them slipping up against a team in total rebuild mode.  Take the Pelicans.  

7:10 PM EST
Rotation # 911-912
Red Sox/Mariners Over 9.5 runs (win)
We will see some nice winds blowing out to the right field wall at 20mph.  Not only does this help with home runs, but gusty winds make it hard just to time catching a ball  and makes defenses work a lot harder fighting a wind.  Both pitchers have been all over the place with walks.  All it takes is a couple free runners to be put on base for a huge inning to occur.  Look for a high scoring game.  Take the Over.
