Twins vs White Sox
-151 at YouWager
Play Type: Free

My free play is on the Min Twins at 2:10 ET. 

The Minnesota Twins won the AL Central title in 2019 with a 101-61 record, the franchise's first 100-win season since the 1965 season (lost a seven-game World Series to the Dodgers and Sandy Koufax). The Twins opened the current season 10-2 but a 10-14 left them a modest 20-16 at the end of August. Minnesota opened September 10-2 but then lost the first two games of its current four-game series at the Chicago White Sox. Chicago was just 72-89 in 2019, 28 1/2 games back of the Twins, but after opening 10-11, the White Sox would go 22-5 after taking the first two games of their series with the Twins. However, after scoring just three runs while losing the first two games, Minnesota scored all its runs on three HRs and received 16 consecutive outs from its bullpen in a 5-1 win over the White Sox last night. The 31-20 Twins are now in position to salvage a split of the series on Thursday afternoon. The Twins crept within two games in the division race.  with Wednesday's win but the White Sox have won 22 of their past 28 games. At 32-17, Chicago could clinch a playoff spot with a victory on Thursday, giving them a postseason spot for the first time since 2008. 

Taking the mound for Minnesota in the series finale will be Kenta Maeda (5-1, 2.43 ERA), while Reynaldo Lopez (1-2, 5.52 ERA) was announced as Chicago's starter following Wednesday's setback. Maeda had solid success as a starter in his first two seasons with the Dodgers (won 29 games), but was moved to the bullpen last season. However, Maeda made it clear in an interview with the Minneapolis Star Tribune prior to the season that he prefers a starting role. Maeda has turned into Minnesota's ace, never allowing more than three ERs in ANY of his nine starts (Twins are 7-2). Maeda's ERA is very good but how about his 0.74 WHIP and BAA of .158. His career BAA is an impressive .221 but TY's mark is 63 points lower! 

Lopez made 32 and 33 starts the last two seasons for Chicago, going just 17-25 with a 4,63 ERA. This marks just his sixth start of 2020 but he's coming off his best outing of the season this past Saturday, when he pitched five shutout innings against the Detroit Tigers (14-0 Chicago win). However, the EXCEPTION does not prove the rule. In Lopez's first four starts of 2020, he was only able to last 9.2 innings (remember, that's over FOUR starts!), allowing 14 hits and nine ERs (8.38 ERA). Maeda has faced the White Sox just twice in his career but won both of then]m with a 2.70 ERA and 1.10 WHIP. The White Sox will have to wait at least one more game to clinch that playoff berth. 

Good luck...Larry

Heat vs Celtics
-2½ -105 at YouWager
Play Type: Top Premium

 My 10* Game of the Week is on the Bos Celtics at 7:00 ET.

No team had played better this NBA postseason than the East's No. 5 seed, the Miami Heat. The Heat were dominant through the first two rounds, going 8-1 SU & ATS. Miami's lone loss was 118-115 (OT) vs Milwaukee in Game 4, when the Heat had the Bucks 'buried' in an 0-3 'hole.' The Heat's team defense has been OUTSTANDING, as Miami has held opponents in its eight wins to an average of just 101.9 PPG. The Celtics are the East's No. 3 seed (won 48 regular season games to Miami's 44) and swept the 76ers in the first round. However, after going up 2-0 vs the Raptors in the second round, they were extended to seven games by the defending champs. The Celtics won Game 7 but only by a 'hair,' when Marcus Smart made what was a game-deciding block with just under one minute left (Boston would win, 92-87).

Game 1 of the Eastern Conference finals was an excellent one, as the teams made the statement, who needs the No. 1 and 2 seeds for excitement. The Celtics led the Heat by 12 points entering the final quarter and were up 14 early in the 4th. However, the Heat made a dramatic comeback and in OT, Jimmy Butler and Bam Adebayo were the heroes. Butler completed the game-winning three-point play with 12 seconds remaining but it was Adebayo's block to deny Jayson Tatum the chance to tie with 3.7 seconds left that garnered the most attention postgame. PG Dragic continued his outstanding postseason play with 29 points and SF Crowder added 22. Butler had 20-5-5 and Adebayo 18-6-9. Let's NOT ignore the performance of rookie guard Tyler Herro (Kentucky), who fell an assist shy of his first career triple-double (12 points, 11 rebounds, nine assists) in 40 minutes off the bench.

Boston's Tatum led the Celtics with 30 & 14 plus Smart continued his strong playoffs with 26 points in the loss. However, another poor showing by All-Star point guard Kemba Walker really hurt Boston, Walker needed 19 shots (he made just six) to get to 19 points. It was his THIRD straight game failing to reach 20 points while shooting worse than 32 percent. He was 1 of 9 from three-point range. "I'm just playing terrible, to be honest," Walker said. "Not much I can say, but I have to be better. I have to do better for this team on both ends of the floor. I have to make better decisions. I just have to make shots overall."

It's only Game 2 but doesn't it feel like a "Make or Break" one for Boston. Reading the Game 1 recap on, it was reported that the Celtics had been 156-1 since the shot-clock era started 65 years ago -- winners of 92 straight -- when leading by 12 or more points going into the fourth quarter of a playoff game. They're now 156-2. There's no real 'gap' between these two teams but n\my bet says Boston ties it up at one-all.

Good luck...Larry

Mets vs Phillies
-118 at betonline
Play Type: Top Premium

My 10* Division Game of the Month (NL East) is on the Phi Phillies at 7:05 ET.

The Philadelphia Phillies played SEVEN games over a five-day span (Sep 10-14) with the Miami Marlins, losing FIVE of the seven games. That left 23-23 Philly and 1 1/2 games back of the 24-21 Marlins for second-place in the NL East as of Tuesday morning.  However, despite playing without outfielder Jay Bruce, first baseman Rhys Hoskins and catcher J.T. Realmuto, the Phils beat the Mets 4-1 Tuesday night (note: starter Jake Arrieta suffered an apparent hamstring injury on Tuesday). Coupled with Miami's 2-0 home loss to Boston, the 24-23 Phils were now just a half-game back of the 24-22 Marlins. Philly's three-game series with the Mets continued Wednesday evening, with the 21-27 Mets hoping to avoid a FOURTH straight loss. 

Jacob deGrom's balky hamstring forced an untimely exit Wednesday night after just two innings (three runs allowed on four hits). The New York Mets fell behind 4-0 but erased that four-run deficit to rally for a 5-4 victory. That Philly loss coupled with Miami's 8-4 win over Boston, means the 25-22 Marlins are back to a 1 1/2 game lead over the 24-24 Phillies for second place in the NL East. New York is not officially eliminated from the playoff field but with just 11 games remaining, the Mets' season remains on 'life-support.'

The 'rubber match' of the three-game series is set for Wednesday, with Seth Lugo (2-3, 2.63 ERA) taking the mound for the Mets and Aaron Nola (5-3, 2.40 ERA) getting the nod for Philly. Lugo made all 61 of his 2019 appearances out of the bullpen, posting a 2.70 ERA, 0.90 WHIP and .192 BAA (he had six saves and 21 holds). He's made 164 appearances but just 35 starts but this marks his fifth start of 2020. He's lasted a modest 17 innings in those four starts and while his ERA is 2.65, the Mets are just 1-3.

Nola is considered Philly's 'ace.' Throw in the fact that he's 7-1 with a 3.13 ERA in 13 career starts vs the Mets (Phils are 9-4) and Nola over Matz is the logical play. Now, let's win it! He's made nine starts in 2020 and in September, posting a 1.33 ERA with a 29-4 KW ratio. Nola is 1-1 with a 2.19 ERA against the Mets this season but in his career is 8-2 (team is 10-5 in his 15 starts), posting a 3.00 ERA and 1.10 WHIP. The Phillies have four games with Toronto coming up Fri-sun (doubleheader tomorrow) and the 26-22 Jays are a tough opponent fighting for a postseason spot. Last thing Philly needs is a loss here (heading into that series), after blowing a four-run lead last night. I'm backing Nola in a "big way!"

Good luck...Larry

Bengals vs Browns
+6 -107 at pinnacle
Play Type: Top Premium

My 9* Battle 4 Ohio play is on the Cin Bengals at 8:20 ET.

The Browns opened the 2020 season with a new head coach, as Freddie Kitchens lasted just ONE season. Kevin Stefanski signed a five-year contract to become the 18th head coach of the Cleveland Browns on January 13, 2020 (was Minnesota's OC in 2019 and this marks his first head coaching job). QB Baker Mayfield had a promising rookie season in 2018 (27/14 TD-to INT ratio and 93.7 QB rating) and Cleveland's 2019 season looked promising. However, Mayfield was awful through the season's first eight games, throwing just seven TD passes with 12 INTs as the Browns went 2-6. They did  win FOUR of their next five games (Mayfield had an 8-4 ratio) but the Browns lost their final three games to finish 6-10 (it didn't help that the Cleveland D allowed 34.0 PPG in those final three games). As for Mayfield, he ended his 'sophomore' season with 22 TDs, 21 INTs and a 77.8 QB rating (far off his 'freshman' numbers!).

Marvin Lewis took over at Cincinnati and had just ONE playoff appearance in his first six seasons. However, he then led the Bengals to SIX postseason appearances over a  seven-year stretch (2009-15) but the Bengals always lost their first playoff game. Three straight losing years followed (2016-18) and he was finally fired. Zac Taylor got the job (his first head coaching gig) in 2019 and the Bengals were just 2-14. However, Cincy was pinning its 2020 hopes on Heisman-winner Jeff Burrow out of LSU, fresh off one of CFB's most prolific seasons.

Joe Burrow's NFL debut (he was the only rookie QB to start the first week of the season) was a mixed bag. He ran 23 yards for a TD but was a modest 22 of 36 for 193 yards without a TD pass. He put the Bengals in range for a dramatic, late-game win but threw an interception on a shovel pass to thwart one late scoring chance and then watched as Randy Bullock missed a 31-yard field goal with two seconds left, clinching the Chargers' 16-13 win. The good news was that the Cincy "D," which allowed 26.3 PPG in 2019, held the Chargers to just 16 points.

The Browns have won just ONE game on Opening Day since returning to the NFL in 1999 and last Sunday was no different. The Cleveland D had no answer for Lamar Jackson, who completed 20 of 25 for 275 yards with three TDs and zero INTs (152.1 QB rating). Jackson also added 45 yards rushing. As for Mayfield, he was a non-factor, going 21 of 39 for 189 yards with one TD and one INT. The offense converted just 3 of 12 third downs and was 0 for 3 on 4th downs

These are two sad-sack franchises but while I think the Browns 'whiffed' with Mayfield, I believe the Bengals "have a keeper" in Burrow. I'm taking the points.

Good luck...Larry


Age: 65 (turns 66 in November).

Years in handicapping: Larry entered his 36th year as a professional handicapper in August of 2019.

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). 36-Club Play: It represents Larry's 36 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."
