Cardinals vs Cubs
-103 at pinnacle
Play Type: Top Premium

My MLB 10* Rivalry Game of the Year is on the Chi Cubs at 7:15 ET.

The St Louis Cardinals came out of the All Star break at just 44-44 but won 12 of 15 to open the second half. The team then hit a 2-8 skid but has since gone 27-12 and with 10 games left in the regular season, own a THREE-game lead over the Brewers and Cubs in the NL Central. Chicago opened its final homestand of the season (10 games) last Friday but after FOUR straight wins, have lost back-to-back games to the Reds and the Cubs are now 'fighting for their lives' with the Brewers for that final NL wild card spot plus would need to outplay the Cards by THREE games with just 10 to go, to catch St Louis atop the division (tall order). However, the Cubs do control their own destiny this weekend, as the Cards visit Wrigley for four games.

Taking the mound in tonight's series opener will be Jack Flaherty (10-8, 3.05 ERA) and Kyle Hendricks (11-9, 3.26).Flaherty lost 5-2 to the Milwaukee Brewers last Saturday, when he struck 10 and gave up three runs and five hits over six innings. This marks Flaherty's 31st start and he's 6-3 with a 1.07 ERA over his last 13 starts (going back to July 7) with opponents are hitting just .152 against him during that stretch. However, the Cards are a more modest 8-5 in that stretch plus St Louis checks in only 15-15 in all of his 2019 starts (minus-$670 at $100/game!). 

Hendricks can 'feel Flaherty's pain' as he's pitched MUCH better than his 11-9 won-loss record or 15-13 (-$237) moneyline mark. Going back to July 2, Hendricks has allowed two ERs or less in 12 of his last 14 starts. He's allowed just one ER in FIVE of his last six starts. What's more,he is 3-0 with an 0.39 ERA vs St Louis in 2019, allowing just one ER in 23 innings!

The Cards are a sub-.500 team on the road (36-38), while the Cubs, despite back-to-back losses to the Reds the last two nights, are 51-26 at Wrigley, outscoring opponents 5.29-to-3.86 RPG. The clincher? The Cubs are 6-0 at Wrigley vs the Cards in 2019, outscoring them 40-16! Cubs win! Cubs win!

Good luck...Larry

Phillies vs Braves
-152 at 5Dimes
Play Type: Premium

My 7* Daytime Dominator is on the Atl Braves at 12:10 ET.

The 93-60 Braves have all but locked up the NL East (current nine-game lead over the Nats gives them a "magic number" of ONE!) but they are FIVE games back of the Dodgers for the NL's best overall record with just NINE games left to the regular season. Atlanta is 60-31 since June 7 but after 5-4 and 4-1 losses the last two nights to the Phillies, the Braves enter Thursday's "getaway day game" looking to avoid being swept for the first time since late July. Philadelphia won for the third time in five contests, despite finishing with four hits and committing three errors. As I've often noted recently, Philadelphia has basically been 'stuck in neutral' since the All Star break, going 31-29.Philly is lucky to still be this close as heading into Thursday, the 78-72 Phils are in a virtual tie with the 79-73 Mets, THREE games back of the Brewers and Cubs for the NL's second wild card spot.

Thursday's pitching matchup features Aaron Nola (12-5, 3.62 ERA) and Mike Soroka (12-4, 2.57 ERA). In one sense, Nola has provided the stability Philadelphia’s rotation has lacked for much of the season, as he is tied for first in the NL in starts (32), third in in innings pitched (191.2) and sixth in strikeouts (216). However, here's another take. Nola was Philly's Opening Day starter, coming off a 17-6 (2.37 ERA) season in which the Phils went 22-11 in his starts, giving him MLB's 12th-best moneyline mark of +$983. He enters this contest 12-5 in 32 starts on the season but note that Philly is a modest 18-14 in his starts, leaving him 'under water' in the moneyline standings (-$261). Nola takes the mound this afternoon winless (0-2 / team is 0-5 ) with a 4.15 ERA over his last five starts.

Soroka allowed five HRs in just 11 innings in two starts to open September but rebounded last Friday at Washington, allowing one hit with three walks and four strikeouts in six shutout innings of a 5-0 win over Scherzer.. The 22-year-old continues building a case for Rookie of the Year honors, ranking second in the NL in ERA, tied for fifth in WAR for pitchers (5.7) and eighth in WHIP (1.09). It has to be noted that Soroka has been better on the road in 2019 (1.35 ERA and 0.91 WHIP in 15 road outings), compared to a 4.18 ERA and 1.32 WHIP in 12 home starts.

However, I'm "all over" Atlanta and Soroka in this one. Atlanta has not been swept in a series since falling in a two-game set to Kansas City back on July 23-24  but now enters this contest having dropped three games in a row for the first time since July 16-18. Expect Soroka (18-9 in team starts) to 'stop the bleeding,' as the Phillies wild card hopes take a HUGE 'hit.'

Good luck...Larry

Titans vs Jaguars
PK -125 at 5Dimes
Play Type: Top Premium

My 10* AFC South Game of the Month is on the Ten Titans at 1:00 ET.

The Jacksonville Jaguars welcome the Tennessee Titans to TIAA Bank Field for an AFC South showdown on Thursday night with the NFL Network carrying the game. It's hard to believe that it was only January of 2018 when the Jags led the Pats by 10 points with less than 10 minutes to go in the 4th quarter of the AFC championship game. We all know the Pats scored a pair of TDs in that 4th quarter to win 24-20 and in effect, the Jags have imploded since. Jacksonville did open the 2018 season 3-1 (including a home rout of the Pats) but the Jags would lose 10 of their final 10 games to end the season at 5-11. QB Blake Bortles was "shown the door" and the Jags signed Nick Foles to a big contract. He was hardly used during the preseason (Jags went 0-4) and then in the first quarter of Week 1, Noles suffered a broken clavicle.

The Titans are coming off three straight nine-win seasons. They shocked the Browns (SI's cover team) 43-13 at Cleveland in Week 1 but missed a great opportunity to open 2-0 by losing 19-17 at home to the Colts when their offense generated only 242 yards. Tennessee doesn’t have superstars but the Titans don’t have any glaring weaknesses. Only TWO teams surrendered fewer points per game than the Titans last season (18.9) and they ranked eighth in yards allowed. Offensively, a lot of the Titans success will come down to Mariota simply staying healthy. Tennessee made several moves in an effort to upgrade the protection around him, giving a $44 million contract to free agent left guard Rodger Saffold and drafting guard Nate Davis in the third round.The Titans have upgraded Mariota’s receiving corps, adding slot-option Adam Humphries, rookie wideout A.J. Brown and getting tight end Delanie Walker back from an ankle injury that sidelined him most of last season. RB Derrick Henry showed how dominant he can be by rushing for 585 yards and scoring seven TDs during the final four games.

Rookie QB Gardner Minshew took over for Foles vs KC and while he completed his first 13 passes and finished 22 of 25 for 275 yards with two TDs, both came after Jacksonville was down 37-13 in the 4th quarter. He performed admirably against the Texans in his first career start with 213 passing yards and a TD, as well as 56 yards rushing, but again, he could get the Jags into the end zone until driving them 68 yards in 14 plays during the game's final four minutes. I admire the Jags "going two and the win," but it failed. Tennessee's pass D ranks second in the NFL (182.5 YPG) and the team's 16.0 PPG allowed ranks 6th. Minshew and the struggling Jacksonville offense will have its work cut out.

Mariota has passed for a modest 402 yards but he has four TDPs and zero INTs in 52 attempts (112.8 QB rating). Rookie WR Brown is averaging 20.8 YPC on his six catches plus now-healthy TE Walker has nine catches and two TDs. RB Henry has 165 yards (4.9 YPC) and two TDs. The Titans have won each of the last four meetings with the Jags, holding them to just 10.3 PPG. With a visit to Atlanta coming up in Week 4, the Titans NEED this one. Expect them to get it.

Good luck...Larry

Houston vs Tulane
+5 -107 at pinnacle
Play Type: Top Premium

My 10* American Conference Crusher is on Houston at 8:00 ET.

The Houston Cougars and Tulane Green Wave meet Thursday in an American Athletic Conference game at Yulman Stadium in New Orleans. Houston has opened 1-2, losing at No. 4 Oklahoma on Sep 1 and at NRG Stadium last Friday to No. 20 Washington St. In between, the Cougars won 37-17 at home against Prairie View A&M. Thursday's game will be the FOURTH different stadium the team has played in over its first four games. Tulane is playing at home for the THIRD time in four weeks, opening with a 42-14 home win over FIU, losing at No. 10 Auburn 24-6 and then crushing Missouri St 58-6 at home last Saturday.

Houston's pass D was overwhelmed by Oklahoma's Hurts and Washington St's Gordon but Tulane QB Justin McMillan is completing a modest 55.2% for 424 yards (2 TDs / 2 INTs), while adding 154 yards rushing (3 TDs). FYI...Hurts and Gordon have completed almost 80% of their passes (21-2 TD-to-INT ratio) with Hurts rushing for 373 yards (9.8 YPC / 4 TDs). Houston QB King is not off to a great start but remember, he passed for 2,982 yards in 2018 (36-6 ratio) and added 674 yards rushing with 14 TDs. He's had a least one TD pass and one rush TD in each game this season, tying Tem Tebow's NCAA record of 14 straight games with at least one TD pass and one rush TD.

Let me note that Houston is 23-10 SU in AAC games since 2015, while Tulane has gone 10-22 in league games over the exact same time span.Houston has 'hung around' against two ranked teams, plus was plagued with costly penalties and noticeably wore down due to lack of depth in its 31-24 loss to Washington State last Friday. However, while getting better, Tulane is still a middle-of-pack AAC team. Meanwhile, Houston is a HIGHLY-PROFITABLE 13-1-1 ATS as an underdog since 2015. That's a 93% winning situation. Take 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."
