We came in with yet another winner for the Sportsbook Room followers as the LA Kings and New Jersey Devils played under the total of 4 ½ goals for the fifth consecutive time in their Stanley Cup Final Series and now in eight straight in their past eight head to head meetings. The combination of bad ice conditions and two strong defensive clubs has kept the scoring extremely low at New Jersey’s building. Also the two net minders in Martin Brodeur and Jonathan Quick are the two best in the business right now. Hard to envision anything but low scoring games the rest of the way here in the Stanley Cup Final. Our best betting pick on Sunday comes from interleague Major League Baseball and the series finale between the LA Angels and Colorado Rockies. The Angels and Rockies will begin from Colorado at 3:10PM Eastern Time and the MLB package has the live national television coverage. With our MLB best pick we will play on the LA Angels and Colorado Rockies to play over the total of 10 ½ goals. The odds from the Angels and Rockies were pulled from Oddsmaker sportsbook.

The LA Angels have enjoyed the thin air of Coors field with 7 runs scored in game one of this series on Friday and 11 runs scored yesterday with both games resulting in victories. LA has scored 6 or more runs in their past five games and is hitting .302 over their past seven games. Angels starter Ervin Santana enters play in poor form by allowing 16 earned runs with 18 hits in his past three starts working 14 2/3rd innings. Santana was terrible last time out as the right hander gave up seven earned runs with eight hits and six walks in just 4 2/3rd innings in a loss to Seattle on Monday.
Colorado Rockies starter Christian Friedrich has not fared well pitching at Coors field as the right hander in two starts sits with an ERA of 10.64 and WHIP of 2.27. Opponents have pushed across 13 earned runs and 20 hits in 11 innings against Friedrich pitching at home. The Rockies hit well at home with over 6 runs scored per game and a team batting average of .287. Friedrich a lefty should have problems against the powerful right handed hitters in the Angels lineup. We saw the Angels crush lefty Jeff Francis yesterday. Two pitchers with shaky form leads us to the over today at the sports book.
