This week`s record, 5-1

Angels/As under 8

That is a generous total for Weaver versus Zito. Chalk is at -110 and I expect it to increase. 5 of the last 6 meetings between these two teams have been settled by a 5 or less run total. Weaver has been pitching deeper into games and the Angel bullpen has been sharp. Weaver has given up 2 runs or fewer in 12 of his 17 starts. In his last start he pitched 7 scoreless innings in Tx. Zito has a 1.72 ERA in two starts against the Angels this year, plus the Angels have not been hitting well, averaging just two runs a game in their last three, none of it involving pitching of the caliber of Zito.

Twins over Orioles, -116

Never underestimate the spoiler role this time of year but I don`t see it happening tonight. The Twins have won 13 of their last 16, are 4-2 in the season series with the Orioles, and have Silva on the mound who has been on a major roll, is 2-0 with a .90 ERA in his last two starts. Cabrera is going the other direction. After a solid August, he has gone 0-2 with a 7.78 ERA this month in four starts. Look for the Twins to redeem themselves from their embarrassing loss last night in Boston.
