When it rains down runs in the CPBL, it's like a monsoon. CTBC was up 10-1 in the 6th inning en route to an 11-5 victory, so obviously Fubon didn't cover and I fell to 25-23, which could soon be a score in Taiwan. The Chinatrust Brothers also jumped back into second place, a mere 7 games out in the loss column.

CPBL Standings

Rakuten 15-5

CTBC 10-12

Fubon 9-12

Uni 9-14

Friday morning at 6:35 am EDT, Rakuten is at Fubon and Chinatrust is Uni.

Moneyline: Rakuten -315, Fubon +230

Run line: Rakuten -3.5 -108, Fubon +3.5 -121

Total runs: Over 11.5 -124, Under 11.5 -106

Pick: Fubon ace Henry Sosa is scheduled to start this morning and the Guardians are still +230 and getting 3.5 runs from Rakuten. Yeesh. That's because Rakuten is pitching Ryan Carpenter and his 2.42 ERA. In this league that's like a Koufax number. So will last year's Sosa show up tonight for a pitcher's duel or will this year's model with an ERA over 6? At 11.5, I'm going to take the Over at -124.

Moneyline: Chinatrust -245, Uni +175

Run line: Chinatrust -2.5 -118, Uni +1.5 -112

Total runs: Over 12.5 -129, Under 12.5 +100

Pick: The league's best pitcher, Ariel Miranda goes tonight for Chinatrust and I'm going to hope he pitches like that and take Under 12.5 at +100.
