LA RAMS -3 over Washington Redskins------I'm not at all happy about how the Redskins blew their game last week.   It defies explanation and it SHOULD be me making this bet to support blowing out these clowns.  Rams won big last week getting a +2 TO but for all I'm concerned,  they can get LUCKIER this week as I know Cousins is fucked up and incompetent and the Redskins are not gonna have a good year.

MINNESOTA VIKINGS +10(-120) over Pittsburgh Steelers
MINNESOTA VIKINGS +335 over Pittsburgh Steelers------After what John Wolford did on Wake Forest yesterday,  I think you have to bet Bradford today.  Vikings also have Kyle Rudolph,  after Mason Rudolph dominated with 5 TDs on Ok State.

JACKSONVILLE JAGUARS +1 over Tennessee Titans-----Jaguars were +4 TO vs Houston and.....some handicappers are saying........bet against them cuz they're not gonna get that lucky.  I say,  Alex Hornibrook threw 94% yesterday......and I can take Allen Hurns at home today.  In fact, did you see Josh Jackson on Virginia Tech??  5 TD 77%,  a total beatdown---I want Jacksonville.

NEW ORLEANS SAINTS +6 over New England Patriots
NEW ORLEANS SAINTS +225 over New England Patriots-----New Orleans has the home-off-road-loss and,  I guess,  Adrian Peterson this year.  Have the Saints got their defense good yet?  It'll probably come down to that.  They do have Cameron Jordan.......and we definitely saw Jordan Ellis get a TD and 95yds for Virginia while Jordon Brown got 2 TDs for North Carolina in a 30pt win.......Jordan Montgomery on the Yankees did good..........Jordan Huff!  a TD for Northern Illinois in the upset of Nebraska.  And it seems to me the Saints' colors are similar to Wake Forest's(a 46-10 beatdown on Utah State).

KANSAS CITY CHIEFS -4.5 over Philadelphia Eagles--------I saw the end of the Eagles game last week and I'm not happy about how Carson Wentz eluded sacks on MULTIPLE OCCASIONS went he should have gone down.

OAKLAND RAIDERS -7.5 over Ny Jets teased with Raiders Jets UNDER 49------For now,  it looks like no offense from Jets.

Saturday, September 16, 2017

SAN FRANCISCO GIANTS(Bumgarner) +131 over Arizona Diamondbacks(Greinke)-------FRANKS!  ..........threw the hail-mary TD to win the game for Florida today.  So,  Francisco?  Well,  Arizona is like 8 games ahead of the closest Wild Card contender so while they haven't clinched anything,  it would be hard to imagine them not making the playoffs.  They are on a 4-4 run and Greinke has faced SF twice and Arizona has won both of those games.  Bumgarner has been a statistically good pitcher this year,  like he usually is.  But he is 3-8.  That is,  the Giants have had a horrible season(they are 57-92) and are on a 1-5 run.
CHICAGO WHITE SOX(Lopez) -106 over Detroit Tigers(Jaye)-----Tigers have won 2 more games than CWS.
LOUISVILLE CARDINALS +3 over Clemson Tigers--------Home team has 3 years of Revenge motivation.

PURDUE BOILERMAKERS +7 over Missouri Tigers
Purdue vs Missouri UNDER 76----------Illinois disgraces Big Ten yet...........this total is SO high(its like a 37-39 game).  I mean,  if 10 TDs are scored in this game,  it still goes Under.

Friday, September 15, 2017

ILLINOIS FIGHTING ILLINI +17(+120) over South Florida Bulls-----Technically,  since the Kansas City Chiefs beat New England to open NFL season........and since the Cleveland Indians are on a record-breaking winning streak,  the Illini should cover this with ease.  But South Florida didn't play last week,  giving them an effective "Bye".

Thursday, September 14, 2017

MINNESOTA TWINS(Berrios) -133 over Toronto Blue Jays(Anderson)
MINNESOTA TWINS(Berrios) -1.5(+142) over Toronto Blue Jays(Anderson)------This line opened at -170.........and I really don't know why it went down so much;  Twins are very much in contention for a WC spot.  This game matters to them.

ATLANTA BRAVES(Foltynewicz) +126 over Washington Nationals(Roark)-----Roark is better than Foltynewicz......but Foltynewicz has done ok over his last 3 starts.   Nats clinched, then lost 2 as favorites........so this line has come down a little.  Roark has faced Atlanta twice,  one time getting rocked.   Yesterday Mike Zunino hit 2 HR for Mariners as Mike Leake got the win so.........we'll go with Mike here.

Tuesday, September 12, 2017

BOSTON RED SOX(Rodriguez) -1.5(+115) over Oakland A's(Manaea)

ATLANTA BRAVES(Teheran) +152 over Washington Nationals(Gonzalez)-----After a 6-1 run the Nationals have clinched the playoffs.  Gonzalez is harder to hit than ever this year.........but he gives a good number of walks.  Braves have done well twice vs Gonzalez while Teheran has had 2 good and 1 bad vs Washington.  Braves on a 4-2 run.   Impressive 1 walk every 5 innings by Teheran this season.

Cincinnati Reds(Stephenson) vs Stl Cardinals(Lynn) UNDER 8.5(-120)-----Stl battling Mil,  Cubs, and Az for pennant or wild card----Lynn has gotten better this year.......Considering how Steven Brault went 2-3 yesterday while shutting out the Brewers in 6 innings,  I'll play Stephenson,  who's been improving,  tho he's walked 43 in 64 innings which is terrible.

Sunday, September 10, 2017

CLEVELAND BROWNS +10 over Pittsburgh Steelers
CLEVELAND BROWNS +375 over Pittsburgh Steelers------just moved from 9 to 10.   Ok,  Browns have Duke Johnson at RB.  Its not just that Duke Catalon had 78 yds for Houston yesterday in a win.  Its the Duke Blue Devils 41-17 win vs Northwestern as a 1-point underdog.  Browns also have Dan Vitale,  after the A's double-Dan beatdowns of the Astros.  Lexington Thomas had 3 TDs for UNLV as they avenged their historic loss to Howard yesterday and the Browns will have Joe Thomas.   Sports Illustrated thinks the Steelers are pretty good.  We'll see.

WASHINGTON REDSKINS +1(+100)  over Philadelphia Eagles--------Chiefs won----as an underdog so.............you see,  you take the Redskins.

ARIZONA CARDINALS -2.5 over Detroit Lions--------Amazing double header yesterday where the Oakland A's started Daniel Gossett and Daniel Mengden and won 11-1 and 11-4 for against the favored Houston Astros.  Also,  there was the Duke game where they covered by about 24 points with Daniel Jones,  the QB,  getting about 400 yds between rushing and passing with 4 tds.   Arizona has Karlos Dansby.   And the Lions don't have that name.   Arizona also has Fitzgerald,  with Nick Fitzgerald winning at QB 57-21 for Mississippi State yesterday.    Lions will have a Robinson on both sides of the ball,  it looks like.  And Robinson Cano went 3-4 yesterday.   Lions are at home;  so this small line seems to indicate that no one is sure Arizona will be very good this year(they were 7-8 last year).   So I'll just bet a very small amount here.

RUTGERS SCARLET KNIGHTS -4.5(-115) over Eastern Michigan Eagles

SLOAN STEPHENS +175 over Madison Keys

Wednesday, September 06, 2017

NEW YORK METS(Gsellman) -110 over Philadelphia Phillies(Pivetta)-------No illusions about Gsellman---he sucks.   How much of their team have the Mets traded away?   Granderson's gone; do they still have Bruce?   I don't know.  Mets are 1-4 in September and 20 games under .500 for the year.  But they have Nimmo.   Ok.   At home against the mediocre Pivetta.  I'll try this.

SEATTLE MARINERS(Moore) +139 over Houston Astros(McCullers)
SEATTLE MARINERS(Moore) +1.5(-115) over Houston Astros(McCullers)-----This line's come down from Houston -170.   McCullers has gotten a lot worse over his last 4 starts........Moore gives WAY too many runs and he's hittable.  But he's only walked 1 every 7inn.   And Ben Gamel,  on Mariners.......did you see what Ben Lively did last night:  2-4 with an HR as a hitter! and he pitched a 7 inning 4-hitter at Mets.

PITTSBURGH PIRATES(Cole) +118 over Chicago Cubs(Quintana)-----Pirates extended their winning streak to what is not 4 games after that girl got caught in the train down there and..........you know,  I don't really see the Cubs winning that division this year.  Cole hasn't been real consistent---at least when I bet on him but...........I'll go with Pirates at home here.

Monday, September 04, 2017

GEORGIA TECH YELLOW JACKETS +4 over Tennessee Volunteers----The Pirates, partially yellow, are really blowing out the Cubs today.  And the favored orange Orioles.....lost today.  So we can take this home team on a color basis.(Win 42-41..........Georgia Tech was +290 yards,  -2 TO.   I guess this game was fixed because of Butch Jones,  the name of Tennessee's coach.   But GT was way ahead and just.................should have won the game easily)

Friday, September 01, 2017

RUTGERS SCARLET KNIGHTS +27.5(-103) over Washington Huskies---George Washington owned slaves.....and no action has been taken against his obvious White Supremacist ideology.  And Scarlet O'Hara's movie is under attack from the city of Memphis. That's all I know.(Win 30-14......Dacoven Bailey TD............Kyle Bolin 70%............Gus Edwards 79yds...........Robert Martin 55yds)

Wednesday, August 30, 2017

CHICAGO CUBS(Quintana) -1.5(+115) over Pittsburgh Pirates(Nova)-----Cubs have the double Team Revenge against Nova who....is a fairly hittable pitcher.  Pirates ARE slightly weaker vs lhps.  At 71-60,  the Cubs are the 5th worst team to bet on(understandable as they won the WS last year).   Quintana might not be the most consistent,  but he's been ok over the long term this year.(Win 17-3..........Hmm.  2HR by Kyle Schwarber........Ian Happ 3-5 HR.........Kris Bryant 3-4.........Anthony Rizzo 2-3 HR..........Rene Rivera 3-5.    Might be interesting if I could support this team.  But they didn't pay...........they didn't pay me when they were offered the chance.   Zero tolerance for not paying me.)

TAMPA BAY RAYS(Odorizzi) +120 over Kansas City Royals(Vargas)-----TB has the Team Revenge for a very poor performance vs Vargas on May 11th.   Vargas is 14-8 which is good on his team.  And Odorizzi walks almost 1 every 2 innings,  which is not good.(Win 5-3)

OAKLAND A's(Graveman) +136 over La Angels(Bridwell)-----A's are off 2 days of terrible,  embarrassing offense and Bridwell is pretty good.   Graveman has gone 2-1 vs Angels this year,  being effective in all those games.   Maybe I feel its just time for Graveman to win for me but.....another thing:  He's from Alabama,  a state which,  I heard,  is putting up some new Confederate monuments............to combat this wicked outbreak of historical vandalism,  a trend,  stoked by the Hate Network MSNBC,  which has so obviously swamped Houston and some other southern cities.(Lose 10-8.............this was gonna win.  Then Chris Hatcher came in,  walked a guy and gave up the GW Grand Slam in the 7th in Cliff Pennington.  What a shame,  because the A's did rock Bridwell)

ARIZONA DIAMONDBACKS(Ray) +121 over La Dodgers(Ryu)-----Ryu IS improving.....and AZ is weaker vs lhps.   But, all things considered,  the Dodgers don't need the game because they've already won too many.  But Arizona needs to keep winning to maintain the Wild Card they're on track for.  So you have a home team at +121 know throwing one of their best pitchers.........and their opponent doesn't need the game.(Win 6-4)

Tuesday, August 29, 2017

Tigers(Fulmer) vs Rockies(Marquez) UNDER 11(+104)(Win 7-3)
TIGERS(Fulmer) +150 over Rockies(Marquez)---------These teams had CRAP pitchers yesterday and the game was 4-3,  not even close to going OVER.  Marquez is actually pretty good:  Out of 22 starts,  he's had 8 in which he finished the 6th inning and allowed 2 ER or fewer.   Tigers on a 4-4 run.  I think the UNDER is the better play but I'll take Fulmer at +150.(Lose 7-3)

TAMPA BAY RAYS(Cobb) +101 over Kansas City Royals(Junis)(Lose 6-2)
Tampa Bay(Cobb) vs Kansas City(Junis) UNDER 9.5(-128)---------Ahh,  I can taste the sweet flavor of History which the Royals can "make" in the 6th inning of this game.....
http://m.mlb.com/news/article/251120558/rays-rout-royals-to-gain-in-wild-card-race/?game_pk=492062
(The Royals, who lost their fifth straight, now have been shut out in 43 straight innings, the longest such streak in Major League Baseball since the mound was lowered after 1968. The previous mark was 42 by both the 1983 Phillies and the 1985 Astros. The '79 Phillies were blanked in 39 innings. The all-time mark is 48 by the 1968 Cubs and the 1906 A's....)(Win 6-2.....they didn't do it)

ARIZONA DIAMONDBACKS(Godley) +110 over La Dodgers(Hill)-----Obviously,  the Dodgers' winning percentage hitherto is unsustainable.   While Hill is from Boston,  Godley's from South Carolina.   While AZ hasn't been doing particularly well on offense(they're 13-13 in August),  the anti-Confederate--even though he owned slaves----Sam Houston's city is 30% underwater right now.   So this play can be seen as a pro-Confederate home team pick,  by my interpretation,  boosted by some current "Act of God" information.(Win 7-6)

LA ANGELS(Scribner) -148 over Oakland A's(Smith)-----Oakland's offense is ABSOLUTELY FATUOUS;  they K'd 14 times last night!!!  Smith's stats aren't bad(he gives up too many HRs I think),  but there's no way he'll win much for this garbage team.(Win 8-2.............Scribner only threw 57 pitches;  Jesse Chavez got the Win.   CJ Cron 2 HR..........Ben Revere 2-4)

Monday, August 28, 2017

OAKLAND A's(Gossett) +160 over La Angels(Heaney)------What happened yesterday was.....Andrew Albers got rocked by the Yankees,  giving up 11 hits in 5 inn,  5 unearned runs and 3 earned runs.   With Andrew Heaney at -170 today,  I'd be inclined to go against him with almost any opponent.  Angels at home here and they've won 8 more games this year than the A's have.(Lose 3-1........if you ever think the A's can hit,  watch this game: A's strikeout 14 times.  Matt Chapman and Matt Joyce combine for an 0-8,  6 LOB.  Jed Lowrie K'd 3 times.  Pathetic offense by A's)

KANSAS CITY ROYALS(Kennedy) -108 over Tampa Bay(Pruitt)------Royals were shutout in their last 3 and are on an 0-4 run.   The team is still 64-65,  and Kennedy has a surprisingly weak 4-9 record this year.   He's kind of a mystery,  I think---he's somewhat hard to hit,  yet his ERA is high.  I guess he just gives up too many HRs.   He's getting his BBs under control,  now at 1 every 2.5innings.   The key thing is that Byron Buxton hit 3 HRs yesterday and he was born on December 18.   So if Kennedy,  also a Sagittarius---born December 19th,  can't win for us here in this home game,  I really don't know what to make of the guy.(Lose 12-0.........This is the final straw.   Kennedy is a fucking..........loser.  7 ER in 2 innings given up by Ian Kennedy.  WTF???  I seriously can't believe this.)

TORONTO BLUE JAYS(Stroman) -108 over Boston Red Sox(Pomeranz)(Lose 6-5)
TORONTO BLUE JAYS(Stroman) -1.5(+170) over Boston Red Sox(Pomeranz)----Blue Jays on a bad 2-7 run.........Pomeranz can be good for about 5 innings,  but he rarely finishes the 7th inning.(Lose 6-5..........2-2 ball in the dirt in the 2nd inning and Toronto's C Raffy Lopez throws it into centerfield because  the SS Ryan Goins is slow to cover the base.  That's let's in a run which proved to be the difference in this game.  But Stroman did good;  bullpen fucked up.  Danny Barnes gives 3ER in 2/3 inning.  Ryan Tepera walks Bogaerts w/ bases loaded.   A real fuck-up)

CLEVELAND INDIANS(Kluber) -106 over New York Yankees(Severino)-------Ok.......both good pitchers here but it seems like Kluber is even better than he was last year.(Win 6-2.........Jose Ramirez 2HR)

COLORADO ROCKIES(Senzatela) -1.5(-126) over Detroit Tigers(Zimmerman)----Senzatela tends to give up home runs,  or at least 'big hits'.   But overall his stats this---his first year----are good;  he's not that easy to hit.   He starts here,  after apparently spending some time in the bullpen.   O/U on this is 12.5 so..........that considers how Zimmerman has been recently.  I'll play.(Lose 4-3...........Rockies outhit them 13-9................17 total LOB for Rockies.  Gerardo Parra left 7 on base.   Senzatela rocked out in the 4th inning.)

Saturday, August 26, 2017

CONOR MCGREGOR +410 over Floyd Mayweather------Did you see the Orioles last night?  16-3,  Jonathan Schoop 4-5.........and you see the three O's in Conor McGregor.   With McGregor,  we're getting at least 10 years of a youth advantage.   Of course McGregor has "fighting experience",  so we can give the boxing experience at this price.  (Lose............McGregor wins the first 3 rounds.....But he's the one who gets too tired to continue in,  like,  the 10th round.   Not a bad bet after I saw the replay.   He just got too tired EVEN with the 10 year youth advantage.  Strange.)
NEW YORK METS(Gsellman) +182 over Washington Nationals(Gonzalez)----Mets have the double Team Revenge against Gonzalez,  who is good(in fact,  he's only allowed 1 ER in his last 27 innings) but.........there's other factors.  Gsellman is not good this year,  but.......he does have the Pitcher Revenge against Washington and Robert Stephenson got good run support yesterday from the Reds while getting 11 K's.   In the last 12 games without Harper,  the Nationals have scored an average of 3.25 runs per game.  By contrast,  the Mets have averaged scoring 3.76 runs in their last 13 games.   For this game,  Murphy and Zimmerman are also listed as OUT on the Nationals.(Lose 9-4........Gsellman gave up 9 hits in 4 innings so----a shelling.  But he also let in 4 unearned runs with his own Error.   For Mets,  Wilmer Flores went 4-4 w/HR)

MILWAUKEE BREWERS(Davies) +162 over La Dodgers(Stripling)----all right,  well,  you had Khris Davis hitting 2HR last night........JD Davis had an HR for Houston.........and Chris Davis went 2-5 with an HR for the Orioles.   And here you have Davies,  a pitcher who is 14-7 this year on a 66-63 team.(Win 3-0............Davies goes 7 3 0 0 7.............HR by Orlando Arcia)

Friday, August 25, 2017

SEATTLE MARINERS(Miranda) +158 over New York Yankees(Sabathia)------Both teams are weaker vs lhps.  But Yankees hit .241 vs lhps while Seattle hits .251 vs lhps.   Yankees have scored 58 more runs this year than Mariners.  Mariners have the Team Revenge vs Sabathia and Miranda,  tho he is sometimes wild,  has been pretty hard to hit throughout this year and his career.(Win 2-1............Yonder Alonso PHGWHR..........James Pazos got the W........Mike Zunino 3-5, HR)

Thursday, August 24, 2017

CHICAGO WHITE SOX(Holland) +164 over Minnesota Twins(Berrios)(Win 5-1)
CHICAGO WHITE SOX(Holland) +1.5(-105) over Minnesota Twins(Berrios)-----Holland is absolutely terrible this year,  walking more than 1 every 2 innings,  throwing a .291 average.   Maybe.......the fact that Iglesias went 3-3 w/ 4RBI today in the Tigers game can mean something favorable to him.(Win 5-1.........Yolmer Sanchez 2-4, HR.......Kevan Smith 2-4)

Wednesday, August 23, 2017

CHICAGO WHITE SOX(Shields) +139 over Minnesota Twins(Santana)------Sox are not the better team here,  but they are at home.(Win 4-3...........Tim Anderson GWRBI..........Leury Garcia 2-4, HR)

SAN DIEGO PADRES(Chacin) +165 over St Louis Cardinals(Weaver)-----Chacin is 11-8 on a team that is 56-69.   I'd call that successful.(Lose 6-2...........Weaver went 7 3 0 1 10...........didn't know he was good.  Chacin went 2-2 as a hitter)

Tuesday, August 22, 2017

SAN DIEGO PADRES(Richard) +170 over St Louis Cardinals(Lynn)------Horrible year for Richard.  But.......he is coming off a CGSHO against............the Phillies.   Maybe he's gonna start doing better.(Win 12-4...........Solarte goes 3-5,  6RBI, HR..........Austin Hedges 2-5, HR)

OAKLAND A's(Blackburn) +151 over Baltimore Orioles(Jimenez)------------Orioles have the better offense,  not sure if they have the better starting pitcher.(Win 6-4...........Ryon Healy 2HR..........Blackburn didn't allow a hit or a walk in 61 pitches.........Bruce Maxwell 2-4)

SEATTLE MARINERS(Gonzales) -118 over Atlanta Braves(Sims)-----I know I don't like the way Sims pitches.  But should I take this..........with no known success out of Gonzales yet?  I guess I will.(Lose 4-0...........So Sims is gonna do good AGAINST me)
