SAN DIEGO PADRES(Johnson) +156 over Baltimore Orioles(Jimenez)-----Johnson's stats are his 4 starts this year.  But Jimenez has really collapsed:  He's been destroyed,  consistently by Toronto, Boston,  Cleveland,  the Angels,  Seattle and Detroit.   Padres certainly are a weaker offense than those teams,  but I'll take the chances at this price.(Lose 7-2.........Jimenez gives 4 BB and 4 Hits in 6,  by far his best results in about 2 months.  Will Myers 0-4?  Johnson rocked but that was kind of expected)

DETROIT TIGERS(Fulmer) -114 over Seattle Mariners(Iwakuma)------Both teams at 36-35 with similar offenses.  Tigers are at home.(Win 5-1..........Steven Moya 3-4 2HR..........Jose Iglesias 3-4)

LA ANGELS(Shoemaker) +133 over Houston Astros(McCullers)-----Angels have Johnny Giavotella and......Johnny Cueto got a lot of run support last night.  Astros take more walks; Angels have a much higher batting average.(Lose 3-2........Shoemaker OK;  massive hole in Angels' lineup:  Trout 0-4 w/BB,  Andrelton Simmons 0-4,  Giavotella 0-4,  Jefry Marte 0-4)

SAN FRANCISCO GIANTS(Samardzija) -103 over Pittsburgh Pirates(Liriano)----Pirates got destroyed yesterday and............well,  Liriano is not improving; he's walked 46 in 73 innings and.....the Giants are 5th in baseball in talking walks.  While the Pirates are below .500 and are probably due for a win,  Samardzija IS improving and is coming off a CG.(Win 7-6........Surprisingly,  Samardzija was rocked.  But the Giants bullpen combined for a 6inn 4-hitter with no walks.  Ramiro Pena 2-5...........GWRBI by Joe Panik in the 6th)
