    Thursday Oct 11
    NFL: 31-23-2 (+$2,250)

    NCAAF: 0-0-0
    MLB: 0-0-0
    NHL: 0-0-0

    NLCS Game 1
    Rockies (Jeff Francis) @ Diamondbacks (Brandon Webb)

    Rockies are playing extremley well and although I do think they have a good chance in this series I think they start out in a 0-1 hole. Brandon Webb might be a bit to much for this sqaud to handle. Francis pitched well in Philly but he has been a tad shaky all season. The D-Backs are young and playing great baseball, they swept the Cubs who were the NL favorite to make it to the WS.

    Diamondbacks -129
    $129 to win $100

    Kind of curious as to how Francis was a 'tad bit shaky all year' when he went 17-9 and was 9-4 on the road. Actually, Webb was kind of shaky vs. the Rockies as he was 1-3 vs. them this year.

    Your really going to pull out the fact he was 17-9 to try to dispute that he wasn't shaky all year?? How about his 4.22 ERA? That is a shaky ERA. How about the fact that since June, Francis has posted monthly ERA's of 6.16, 4.04, and 4.78? Webb v Francis happened @ Coors on September 28, webb won 4-2. Don't overlook these D-Backs, we did it in the Cubs series. The D-Backs are the NL WS representative.

    This is Webb's big moment .
    When you have a guy that is your #1 ace going in game 1 of a playoff series at home , how can you not back it here .
    He had some crazy streak of not giving up a run in 45 or so innings right ?
    To me that is worth backing .
    If Valverde comes out in the 8th or 9th I like him in this spot too .
    The Rockies win streak run was an amazing one .
    Enough already ! It stops tonight .
