Astros vs Giants

Play Type: Premium

NOTE: This is a play on the GIANTS, wrong side chosen by mistake.


My 8* AL West/NL West Showdown is on the SF Giants at 4:05 ET.

The Giants own the best record in baseball and they'll be eager to get back to their winning ways after dropping the opener of this interleague series yesterday by a score of 9-6. 

The Astros have won eight of ten and three in a row.

San Francisco has won six of ten, but it's dropped two of its last three.

I say the Giants are the "hungrier" team today. San Francisco also is set to welcome slugger Kris Bryant to the line-up today, as he comes over in a trade from the Cubs. 

The home side will clearly be motivated today and it has a pitcher on the mound that can match Houston's inning for inning.

The Astros hand the ball to Zach Greinke (10-3, 3.48 ERA), while the Giants counter with Alex Wood (9-3, 3.65).

Both are coming off strong outings. Each has enjoyed success against their opponent today in the past. They're evenly matched in my books.

San Francisco though has been resilient in this position for bettors, going 7-2 in its last nine in trying to revenge a home loss against an opponent in which it allowed eight or more runs in.

Considering all of the situational and motivational factors I see working in favor of the Giants today and which are listed above, I think we're getting unbelievable value here on the home side.

The play is San Francisco.

Good luck...Larry

Brewers vs Braves

My 9* Las Vegas Insider is on the Atl Braves at 7:20 ET.

The Braves have been trading wins and losses over their last ten games.

After a 9-5 loss here in the opener of this series, I believe this pattern will continue.

The Brewers have been playing well over the last few weeks, but after four straight wins, I say the "letdown" happens today.

The Braves fly under the radar here at home as the underdog.

These starting pitchers are more evenly matched than what Vegas is trying to lead us to believe in my opinion.

The Brewers hand the ball to Brandon Woodruff (7-5, 2.14 ERA), who gav eup three runs over seven innings in what turned out to be a loss to the White Sox.

Clearly, Woodruff has been superb this year. I just think that Braves rookie hurler Kyle Muller (2-3, 2.55) can match him inning for inning.

Muller earned his second career win last time out, striking out three over five scoreless against the Mets. 

He's been better at home than on the road, but I still think he can match his counterpart here.

The Braves though have done well in this spot for bettors, going 8-3 in their last 11 in trying to revenge a home loss against an opponent in which they conceded eight or more runs in.

Great value on the hungry home side.

The play is the Braves.

Good luck...Larry

Reds vs Mets

My 10* PERFECT STORM is on the Cin Reds at 7:10 ET.

The Cubs are on the verge of being eliminated from playoff contention, while the Reds are well on the way to securing a spot.

These teams are moving in opposite directions right now and I expect that trend to continue.

Cincinnati has won seven of ten and four in a row. I like going against "streaks/runs," whether those are winning or losing, but right now I think the Reds are "locked in." 

Rich Hill (6-4, 3.95 ERA) makes his second start for the Cubs. In his first he allowed three runs over five innings in a no-decision to the Jays. 

Hill is going to have his hands full though with a red hot Jonahthan India, who had two home runs and three RBI's in yesterday's 6-2 series opeing victory.

The Mets got some crushing news as well when they learned that star pitcher Jacob deGrom will be shelved for the season with injury.

New York's prospects aren't looking great right now, and I think that Reds' starter Wade Miley can take advantage.

Miley (8-4, 2.86) is 4-0 with a 2.42 ERA in his last ten outings.

Too many uncertainties for this Mets organization, while the Reds come in playing arguably their best baseball of the season.

All things considered, I believe this to be the very definition of "great line value." 

The play is the Reds.

Good luck...Larry

A's vs Angels
-116 at linepros
Play Type: Premium

The 3rd pick of my STP is an 8* on the LA Angels at 4:07 ET.

The Angels eked out a 1-0 win here last night and I think they'll find a way to earn a series win here on Sunday.

This is a battle of rookie starters that make their respective MLB debuts.

However, that's where the similarities end between these two young hurlers.

The form in which Angels' starter Reid Detmers enters makes him the correct call in this matchup. Detmers comes over from Triple-A Salt Lake, where he made one start, going six scoreless and striking out nine. 

The Athletics' Daulton Jefferies posted a 5.19 ERA and 1.29 WHIP across 59 frames in Triple A action (Jefferies actually made his MLB debut for the A's late last year, so this is his second ever MLB start, and first of the season.)

LA trails Oakland by six games for the Wildcard spot and I look for it to build off yesterday's victory.

Lay the short price, the play is LA.

Good luck...Larry

Twins vs Cardinals
-133 at SC Consensus
Play Type: Premium

The 2nd pick of my STP is an 8* on the StL Cardinals at 2:15 ET.

I like the Cards to bounce back here in the finale of this interleague series. St. Louis took the first game by a score of 5-1, and then Minnesota won 8-1 yesterday.

The visitors hand the ball to Michael Pineda (4-5, 3.86 ERA), who gave up two runs over six innings in a no-decision to the Tigers on Monday. 

Pineda has been a consistent bright spot in the Twins' rotation this year, but if he's had one knock against him, it's been his play on the road where he's just 2-2 with a pedestrian 4.98 ERA.

The home side counters with Adam Wainwright (8-6, 3.51) who continues to enjoy a resurgent season, most recently allowing two runs over seven innings in a victory over the Tribe. 

He's now gone into the seventh inning six times in his last ten starts and over that span he's posted a 2.86 ERA and a 62/15 K/W over 66 frames of work (he has a 4.98 ERA on the road and a 2.70 ERA at home as well.) 

Look for St. Louis to bounce back here behind a superior start from Wainwright.

Lay the price, the play is the Cardinals.

Good luck...Larry

The 1st pick of my STP is a 9* on the Mil Brewers at 1:20 ET.

I had a play on the Braves last night and they went on to crush the Brewers by a score of 8-1.

Tonight though I think the value has swung back the other way.

The visitors hand the ball to Brett Anderson (3-5, 3.86 ERA), who comes in off a super strong outing against the Pirates on Tuesday, going six scoreless. 

He's now allowed just two runs over two starts since the All Star break and I believe he'll carry over that momentum here. 

The Braves counter with Charlie Morton (10-3, 3.72), who gave up three runs over five innings in a win over the Mets on Tuesday. Morton has been great of late, but the Brewers are 20-6 in their last 26 vs. right-handed starters.

Milwaukee is also 8-2 in its last ten as a road dog.

The Braves are only 26-26 at home, while the Brewers are 33-18 on the road.

This one has slight upset written all over it.

The play is Milwaukee.

Good luck...Larry

My 9* Las Vegas Insider is on the SF Giants at 4:05 ET.

The Giants have been alternating wins and losses over their last five games, but I say that pattern gets broken today after their 8-6 win yesterday.

Houston's three-game win skein is snapped and with a night off before a two-game set at the defending champs, this also sets up as classic letdown/look-ahead spot in my estimation.

I like the league leading Giants to take advantage.

The Astros hand the ball to rookie Luis Garcia (7-5, 3.19 ERA), who is starting to show some cracks in the armor of late, most recently conceding six runs over four innings to the Mariners. He was lucky to escape with a no-decision. 

While he's 4-3 with a 2.25 ERA at home, Garcia is just 3-2 with a 4.59 ERA on the road. 

The home side counters with Logan Webb (4-3, 3.36), who gave up one run to go along with five strikeouts over six innings, unlucky to earn a no-decision vs. the Dodgers on Tuesday.

Webb owns a 70/22 K/W over 67 innings of work and he's 2-0 with a 1.61 ERA at home.

Look for Webb to continue his red hot play at home and for Garcia to continue to regress in thid difficult road venue.

The play is the Giants.

Good luck...Larry

Red Sox vs Rays
Red Sox

Play Type: Top Premium

My 10* AL East Game of the Month is on the Bos Red Sox at 7:08 ET.

Boston comes in hungry to break a four-game slide and to avoid the three-game series sweep here in Tampa. 

The Rays come in complacent after three straight victories and with the lowly Orioles coming to town tomorrow for a new series.

The visitors hand the ball to Nick Pivetta (8-4, 4.51 ERA), who gave up four runs and struck out six over five innings in a no-decision to the hard-hitting Blue Jays on Monday. Pivetta hasn't been great or terrible over the last month, but pedestrian is probably the best word to describe his performance.

That said, the second-year pro has been fantastic on the road this season, going 5-2 with a 3.22 ERA.

The home side counters with Shane McClanahan (4-4, 3.93), who is off a loss to the Yankees on Tuesday, conceding three runs over six innings.

With last night's win, the Rays have taken over the lead in the AL East by a half game. 

I think Pivetta can outduel his rookie counterpart here in this important game (also note that Boston is 7-2 in its last nine after a three games or longer losing streak.)

For all the reasons listed above, I'm playing Boston.

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."
