MLB  |  Oct 14, 2021
Dodgers vs Giants
-104 at pinnacle
Play Type: Top Premium

My 10* Rivalry Rout-Part 4 is on the SF Giants at 9:07 ET.

The San Francisco Giants set a franchise record with 107 wins in 2021, while the Dodgers tied their franchise-high with 106 wins. San Fran's one-game edge in the NL West not only snapped LA's eight-year run as division champs but also allowed the Giants to have the home field advantage in this NLCS matchup. By the way, the Dodgers and Giants are going head-to-head in the postseason for the first time in the 131-year history of their New York-born rivalry. This matchup only came about when the Dodgers' Chris Taylor hit a walk-off two-run HR last Wednesday in the bottom of the 9th to allow LA to edge the red-hot Cardinals, 3-1.

I guess it should come as no surprise that this series has 'gone the distance' and that Thursday baseball fans will be treated to a Game 5 "winner-take-all" contest with the victorious team moving on to the NLCS where the Atlanta Braves are waiting. Tonight's starting pitchers are NOT household names but they are two of MLB 2021's most OUTSTANDING starters. The Dodgers' Julio Urias was MLB's only 20-game winner in 2021, finishing the season with a 20-8 record and a 2.96 ERA. He also ended with an elite 1.02 WHIP plus a 195/38 KW ratio over 185.2 innings of work. The Giants Logan Webb finished the regular season at 11-3 with a 3.03 ERA, a 1.11 WHIP and a 158-35 KW ratio. Webb's record is good but not OUTSTANDING. To see that, one has to look 'deeper.'

Webb's last loss came way back on May 5, as over his last 21 starts (including a 4-0 win in Game 1 of this series), he's 11-0 with the Giants going 19-2. The Giants went 21-5 in Webb's regular season starts in 2021, giving him MLB's second-best moneyline mark (+$1,283) among starters. Now that's OUTSTANDING! However, getting back to Urias, he ain't far behind. The left-hander's last loss came back on June 21. He entered Game 2 of this series having gone 8-0 with a 1.77 ERA in his last 11 starts, with the Dodgers winning all 11. After LA lost Game 1, a Game 2 victory was a must and Urias delivered a five-inning, three-hit, one-run effort. LA led 2-1 when he exited and the Dodgers would score four runs in the 6th to pull away for a 9-2 win, Including that contest, Urias is 12-0 over his last 18 starts with LA going 16-2. Take that Mr Webb! Let me also note that pitching away from home was not a concern all season for Urias, as he went 13-2 with a 2.71 ERA in 18 road starts (Dodgers were 15-3). Throw in Game 2 and make it 14-2 with LA going 16-3.

Which starting pitcher and which team will 'BLINK' in Game 5. The Dodgers do own all the recent playoff experience, playing in their NINTH straight postseason and hold the title of defending champs. Yes, the Giants won ONE more game than the Dodgers during the regular season but LA owned MLB's best run-differential at plus-269 (a GREAT indicator of a team's strength), 59 runs better than the Giants mark of plus-210. However, the Giants went 54-27 at home, MLB's second-best home record. Naturally, the Dodgers own MLB's best home record at 58-23 but it's the Giants who are at home for this Game 5 decider! Zeroing in on the Urias/Webb matchup, the two have squared off THREE times in 2021 with the Giants winning all THREE, as Webb allowed four ERs over 16 innings for a 2.25 ERA. I noted Urias' excellent road record but Webb made 13 home appearances (12 starts), going 6-0 with a 1.96 ERA, allowing just 55 hits in 73.1 innings (.213 BAA) with 86 Ks. He then threw 7.2 scoreless innings at home vs the Dodgers in Game 1 of this series.

Bottom line is, I don't believe San Francisco's 'magical' season is ready to end. With Willie Mays watching (note: Joe Posnanski's new book, The Baseball 100, just rated "the Say Hey Kid" as MLB's No. 1 player of all time), this game ends with the Giants on top. Paraphrasing Russ Hodges' classic call after "The Shot Heard 'Round the World,"..."The Giants win the pennant, the Giants win the pennant and they're going crazy!" OK, it's not the pennant but rather the NLDS but you get the point!

Good luck...Larry

Matchup Selection W/L
NFL  |  Oct 14, 2021
Bucs vs Eagles
+7 -118 at pinnacle
Play Type: Top Premium

My 10* NFL Game of the Week is on the Phi Eagles at 8:20 ET.

Tom Brady led the Bucs to his SEVENTH and Tampa Bay's second Super Bowl title in the 2020 season. What's more, the Bucs returned all 22 starters from that team for the 2021 season. The 44-year-old QB is like the "Energizer Bunny," as he is still accomplishing new feats. Brady is fresh off a performance against the Miami Dolphins in which he passed for 411 yards and five TDs during a 45-17 victory. It marked the first time the 22-year veteran passed for 400 yards and five TDs in the same game. The 4-1 Tampa Bay Buccaneers visit the 2-3 Philadelphia Eagles on Thursday night. The Eagles opened with a 32-6 road win against Atlanta in Week 1 but didn't win again until Week 5, when they won 21-18 in Carolina.

Brady leads the NFL with 1,767 passing yards, completing 66.2% with 15 TDs and just two INTs for a QB rating of 108.5. Speaking of interceptions, he also has an ongoing franchise record of 203 consecutive passes without one. "What he does is crazy, especially at his age and with the level of play that he has been able to sustain for such a long time," Buccaneers WR Mike Evans told reporters. "It's unreal and I don't think we will ever see it again." Evans has 29 receptions (4 TDs), tying him with Godwin for most catches. Antonio Brown has 20 catches and three TDs, while TE Gronk has 16 catches and four TDs. However, Gronk has missed the last two games and along with Godwin, is questionable for this game. Brady, who has a thumb injury (but he's Superman, right?), is having a great season despite getting little help from a running game that is averaging only 82.0 YPG (26th). The Tampa Bay defense was great during last season's Super Bowl run but this year's unit ranks 1st in allowing 45.8 YPG rushing but 32nd in yards allowed passing (314.4).

The Eagles have decided that Jalen Hurts is their No. 1 QB and he' showing promise. He's completing 64.8%, averaging 324.2 YPG plus has seven TDs and three INTs. He's also a dangerous runner, gaining 256 yards on 6.0 YPC with three TDs. RB Sanders is solid, with 214 yards on 4.5 YPC. Heisman-winner Smith has 325 catches but is averaging a less-than-impressive 12.5 YPC. Watkins has 13 catches and an excellent 20.5 YPC. Philly has two good TEs in Goedert (15 catches) and Ertz (14), which is good news with Goedert currently sidelined. The defense is allowing 24.8 PPG (21st) but matches up well here vs Brady, allowing just 194.8 YPG through the air, third-best in the NFL.

Brady expressed concern about the short preparation time to dissect a Philadelphia defense that features three-time Pro Bowl cornerback Darius Slay and two stellar defensive linemen in six-time Pro Bowler Fletcher Cox and breakout star Javon Hargrave. Slay intercepted two passes and CB Steven Nelson picked off one as Philadelphia recovered from a 15-3 deficit late in the second quarter to win 21-18.

Philadelphia's 21-18 road victory over Carolina essentially saved its season last weekend. Philadelphia's defense looked great in that one, holding Sam Darnold's offense to just 177 passing yards, to go along with three interceptions (Eagles also posted three sacks). Tampa Bay may be a little tired and note that the Bucs are 0-2 ATS on the road this season, losing by 10-points at the Rams and 'escaping' with a two-point win in New England, when the Pats' potential game-winning FG hit the left goal post.  Note that since Brady's come on board, the Bucs are also just 4-6 ATS as a road favorite with a plus-4.3 spread differential. Take the points!

Good luck...Larry

Matchup Selection W/L
MLB  |  Oct 15, 2021
Red Sox vs Astros
-135 at Caesars
Play Type: Top Premium

My 10* ALCS Opener is on the Hou Astros at 8:07 ET.

It's Boston vs Houston in the ALCS. Ironically, Boston manager Alex Cora serves as "the tie that binds" the Red Sox and Astros. He was the Astros' bench coach for their World Series title-winning team in 2017 and the Red Sox's manager during their championship-winning season the following year. His involvement in the cheating scandal saw him suspended for the 2020 season. Houston manager AJ Hinch was fired at Houston and veteran Dusty Baker was brought in. Cora has won all EIGHT postseason series in which he's been involved, 3-0 as Houston's bench coach in 2017 and now 5-0 with Boston. Baker has had a long and storied managerial career (he ranks 12th in all-time wins) but he's the ONLY manager in that top-12, who has NEVER won a World Series title.

That said, I'm not about to argue that this series will be decided by the managers. The Game 1 starters are Chris Sale and Framber Valdez. Sale didn't take the mound until August 14th this season and in nine starts went 5-1 with a 3.16 ERA (team was 7-2). This marks Valdez's fourth MLB season and after going 13-11 with a 4.19 ERA over 45 appearances (23 starts ) in his first three, he had a breakout season in 2021. He made 22 appearances (all starts) and went 11-6 with 3.14 ERA (lowest among Houston starters). 

Sale is considered an elite pitcher but I just don't get it. He typically 'runs out of steam' when playing a full season and here in 2021, lasted just 2.1 innings at Washington (pulled when down 2-0) when the Red Sox needed a win in Game 162. Lucky for him, Boston rallied from a 5-1 deficit for a 7-5 win. Sale was then handed the ball in Game 2 of the ALDS with Boston coming off a 5-0 loss in Game 2. What did "Mr Elite" do? He allowed four hits and one walk and gave up five runs in the 1st inning, AFTER Boston had given him a 2-0 in the trop of the first. Cora had seen enough and Sale was taken out but again, the Red Sox would rally for a 14-6 victory. 

Valdez was very good in the 2020 postseason for Houston, which after a 29-31 regular season record, somehow got them into the expanded playoff field. The left-handed Valdez made four appearances (three starts), going 3-1 with a 1.88 ERA and 1.00 WHIP in the 2020 playoffs.  Valdez started Game 2 of Houston's ALDS against the White Sox and allowed four runs on seven hits in 4.1 innings of a no-decision (note: Houston won 9-4).

I just noted Valdez's postseason effort last year and Sale's postseason numbers are 'UGLY!' In eight appearances (five starts), he's allowed 21 ERs on 28 hits in 26 innings (7.27 ERA). Let me go back to his abbreviated 2021 season and point out that his 3.16 was slightly higher than his career mark of 3.03 and his 1.34 WHIP was the highest of any season in his career (30 points higher than his lifetime WHIP of 1.04). How about his BAA of .269 in 2021 being FIFTY points higher than his lifetime mark of .219! 

One last thing. Valdez owns a 1.59 ERA in four career appearances (two starts) against the Red Sox, including going 2-0 in two starts vs Boston this season, allowing just two ERs over 14.1 innings (1.26 ERA) with 18 Ks! Houston goes up 1-0!

Good luck...Larry


Age: 67 (turns 68 in November).

Years in handicapping: Larry entered his 38th year as a professional handicapper in September of 2021.

Achievements in handicapping: 1985 Castaway’s Pro Football Challenge Champion, then the most prestigious handicapping contest in Las Vegas; 1999 Stardust Invitational semi-finalist.

A member of the original cast of Proline (began in 1985), the nation’s longest running pre-game handicapping show on the USA-TV network (also hosted Sports Desk on the same network from 1996-98). In then joined the panel of The Winning Edge in the early 2000s. Although well-known on TV for his expert game analysis and no-nonsense handicapping style, Larry may be best known for his radio work. He hosted his own syndicated call-in radio show, Sports Central. It aired live from Bally's Casino in Las Vegas in the early to mid-90s and at one time was heard in more than 100 markets.

Systems used for handicapping a game: Fundamental and statistical analysis. "I'm not typically a trend and system kind of guy," Ness says. "I look at team strengths and weaknesses and compare them. It’s an all-encompassing thing and over 35-plus years, you get good at it."

Star Ratings: 9 and 10*s are considered "Best Bets." All other plays are rated between 6 and 8*s, depending on strength and/or price.

Release Times: Larry releases "daily sports" (MLB, NBA, NCAAB and NHL) on the day of the game. His full card is almost always available by 10:00 ET (save Late-Breaking games). In the FB season, Larry begins releasing plays as early as Tuesday. His full CFB card is typically complete by Thursday (on Friday, at the latest) and his full NFL card will be mostly complete by Friday (definitely by Saturday at 3:00 ET).

38-Club Play: It represents Larry's 38 years in the business and gets his highest star rating (10*s). Expect no more than one of these plays per month, per sport during the regular season.

LEGEND Play: Larry's often been referred to as a Las Vegas legend and he's 'borrowed' the title for his other "signature play.". Larry's LEGEND Plays were previously available to only a select group of private clients but they are now available to all, via the internet. Like his 36-Club plays, expect no more than one play per month, per sport (rated 10*s).

Game of the Month and Game of the Year Plays: Always rated 10*s. Las Vegas Insider: Throughout his 36 years "in the business," Larry has become known as "the ultimate Las Vegas insider." The contacts he's developed over more than three decades (on both sides of the 'counter'), are arguably "unmatched!" He confers daily with 'his 'friends' and when "all the stars align on the same game," Larry releases an exclusive Las Vegas Insider (rated between 7 and 10*s).

Oddsmaker's Error Plays: Larry uses this term with "great respect" (and not very often), as he counts among his very closest friends many of Las Vegas' most famous and respected Sport Book directors (past and present). However, when Larry feels "the line is significantly off," he'll release one of these "not to be missed" plays (rated 9 or 10*s).

Situational Stunners: Larry's a fundamental handicapper at heart but he does pay attention to team and situational trends (especially in MLB). When his fundamental handicapping and a strong trend or situation match up, he releases a Situational Stunner. He began releasing these plays in MLB '09 and he's expanded them since,to all sports (rated from 7-10*s, based on strength and/or price for moneyline sports).

PERFECT STORM: Larry just added these plays the last few years and his accompanying expert analysis makes these popular plays self-explanatory (typically rated 9 or 10*s but moneyline sports may be rated 7 or 8*s due to price).

Weekly and Weekend Wipeout Winners: Larry added this self-explanatory moniker just a few years ago. They've become immensely popular and why not? Who wouldn't want a game that has "blowout written all over it," supported by Larry's expert analysis (rated between 7 and 10*s, depending on strength and price).

Superstar Triple Play: Over the years, many of Larry's regular clients have clamored for more three-game reports. You asked for it and Larry's responded. Back in the late 1980s and into the mid 1990s, 900-numbers became "the rage." While a panel member of Proline (see above), Larry created the Superstar Triple Play. One call got you three Superstar Triple Plays (in a particular sport). For almost a decade, anywhere from 1,500 to 3,500 callers responded each weekend, when Larry offered his famous "Superstar Triple Play" pitch on Proline. Starting in 2009, Larry began going "Back to the Future!" Look for 3-game reports this FB season on Saturday (college) and Sunday (NFL). Get three plays on a single report from Larry (many will be TV games), the originator of the "Superstar Triple Play!".

Late-Breaking Plays: Larry will always go back and take a "second look" at each day's card, after posting all his games. When he finds something he missed the first time around, he'll release a Late-Breaking Play. These plays are more prevalent in sports like baseball and basketball than football (typically rated at 8 or 9*s).

Quote: "No one works any harder and my work-product speaks for itself," Ness says. "I have a no-nonsense style and my logic is easy to follow. Anyone buying my plays will know exactly what I was thinking when I made the selection. After 34 years, the Larry Ness brand is instantly recognizable and my analysis ranks with the best in the industry."
