At 1:05 pm, in Game 1 of the Double Header, our selection is on the Los Angeles Dodgers over the Chicago Cubs.  With Clayton Kershaw, Hyun-Jin Ryu, and Walker Buehler on the DL right now, the Dodgers' starting pitching is a mess.  Which is why they sure need the services of a healthy Kenta Maeda.  The veteran Japanese RH was pulled from his start at the end of May with what was diagnosed as a right hip strain.  Fortunately for the Dodgers, this injury -- unlike some of the others to the SPs mentioned -- was not serious and Maeda was activated two weeks later and then pitched very well against the Rangers.  He showed no signs of that injured hip but was limited to five innings and 76 pitches.  The Dodgers should expect more from him this afternoon and they likely will get it.  They can also expect success in this series as the Dodgers have dominated the Cubs in recent meetings.  In their last eight games against each other, L.A. has won seven and has out-scored Chicago in those eight by 46-12.  Not only have the Dodgers found success recently despite all the pitching injuries, but they are 9-1 in their last 10 road games.  Take L.A. Mound Mismatch Massacre! Good luck, as always...Al McMordie.

At 2:00 pm, on Tuesday, our selection is on Egypt plus the +0.5 goal over Russia.  The host nation Russia was impressive in the opening match of the World Cup by crushing Saudi Arabia by a 5-0 score.  We had the Bears and were rewarded by that offensive onslaught.  However, let's not overreact to one good performance since this result may say more about how bad Saudi Arabia is.  Moreover, the Russian team limped into this tournament with just one win in their last eight friendlies.  While we do not want to read too much into exhibition matches, the Bears were disastrous in the 2016 Euro before failing to advance to the knockout stage as the host nation in last summer's Confederation Cup.  Even worse:  midfielder Alan Dzagoev just suffered a leg injury which will likely keep him out of this match.  Egypt -- like Russia -- played a great game to kick off their tournament.   The Pharaohs allowed just one goal in their match vs. Uruguay in the 89th minute to walk away with a heartbreaking 1-0 loss.  But not all is lost for this team as its superstar striker, Mohamed Salah, looks to take the pitch on Tuesday with it being a little after three weeks since he suffered a leg injury in the Champions League finals.  Salah scored 44 goals in 52 matches for Liverpool, and will be the best player on the pitch while offering another jolt of confidence to the Egyptian players who managed quite well without him on Friday.  The Pharaohs are desperate to gain the three points that come from a win while Russia could be content to park the bus in the back and grind out a draw which will give them another point (while maintaining a favorable goal differential for tie-breakers).  Take Egypt plus the +0.5 goal. As always, good luck...Al McMordie.
