My 10* Las Vegas Insider is on the Pittsburgh Penguins (7:05 EST).

No need to overthink this one. Chicago annihilated the Penguins 10-1 on October 5th. It was the second game in as many nights for the Pens and it was the Hawks home opener. The night before Pittsburgh won in OT against the Blues in its opener. 

The Pens come in on top form, winning two in a row and going 3-1-1 in their last five. 

Since Oct. 29th Pittsburgh has allowed 23 goals over eight games, which works out to just 2.9 per contest. 

Note that Chicago is just 2-4 (-3.3 units) this year after a win by two goals or more, while Pittsburgh is already 7-2 (+4.8 units) this season against clubs with losing records.

For all the reasons listed above, play on the Penguins.

Good luck…Larry

My 10* LEGEND is on Oregon State (11:00 EST).

The 2-0 Long Beach State 49ers are set to square off against the 1-1 Oregon State Beavers on Saturday night and for a number of different reasons, I think this one favors the Beavers.

LBSU comes in off a 95-70 win over San Francisco, dominating the glass by a 51-28 margin. There is some room to read between the lines though, as the 49ers would turn the ball over 21 times. Bryan Alberts led the charge with 18 points in that one, while Barry Ogalue had 15 points and eight boards.

The Beavers are looking to bounce back here after a 75-66 defeat at the hands of the Wyoming Cowboys. Oregon State was a 7.5 points favorite in that one. Clearly the Beavers can’t be happy with their performance. Oregon State just couldn’t get anything to fall that night, hitting only 40 percent from the floor and going just 4 of 20 from range. Tres Tinkle was a standout with 20 points and 14 boards, while Drew Eubanks added 18 points as well. 

I’ll point out that LBSU is just 1-2 ATS in its last three after scoring 94 points or more, while Oregon State is 2-1 ATS in its last three afte rbeing held to 68 points or less in its prevoius contest.

LBSU’s sloppy play catches up to it here in my opinion, as the Beavers look to make amends after their poor performance against the Cowboys.

I’m expecting a rout, lay the points with confidence.

Good luck…Larry

My 10* Situational Stunner is on the Atlanta Hawks (7:35 EST).

Is Boston ever going to lose again? The Celtics come to Atlanta on the heels of a 14-game win streak, including having just knocked off the defending champs at home in an impressive 92-88 victory on Thursday. 

I believe the C’s do finally have a letdown here though as I look for the hungry Hawks to take this one right down to the wire.

The Hawks come in with momentum/confidence as well after smashing the Kings 126-80 in their most recent action, the team’s largest margin of victory of all time. Atlanta would go on to record 40 assists, which was the most in the league since December 15th, 2016 when the Warriors posted 41. 

"Right now we have (one of) the worst record in the NBA, so any win is a good win and we'll take it," Atlanta forward Taurean Prince assessed.

Note that this is a revenge game for the Hawks as well after the Celtics won 110-107 back on November 6th. 

I’m expecting Atlanta to push the pace of this one and to not go down without a fight. Grab the points, play on the Hawks.

Good luck…Larry

Play Type: Free

My 1* Free Play is on USC (8:00 EST).

The 5-5 UCLA Bruins are at USC to take on the 9-2 Trojans and for a number of different reasons, I think this one favors the home side. 

UCLA comes in off a 44-34 victory over Aizona State, while USC most recently posted a 38-24 road win over Colorado last weekend. 

Note that when these team’s met last year, it was USC that scored the relatively simple 36-14 victory. 

The Bruins looked terrible on the defensive side in their win over Arizona State last Saturday, giving up 584 total yards, including 290 through the air. With a much more “winnable” game at home against 5-5 Cal in their season finale, QB Josh Rosen and company could be caught looking ahead. 

The Trojans didn’t look overly impressive defensively last week either, giving up 486 total yards. But the unit came up big when it had to, bending but not breaking with two key INT’s (note that the defense has three picks over the last two games.) USC QB Sam Darnold was 21 of 34 for 329 yards, two TD’s and no INT’s. 

I’ll point out that UCLA is just 1-8 ATS in its last nine off a win against a conference rival (including 0-2 ATS this year), while USC is 3-1 ATS in its last four after scoring 37 points or more in its previous outing.

This is an important game for both teams, but there’s no way that USC takes the foot off the gas at this point. I’m expecting a rout from start to finish. Consider the Trojans in this matchup.

Good luck…Larry

My 10* GAME OF THE MONTH is on Boston College (7:00 EST).

The Eagles had their three-game win streak snapped in a tight 17-14 setack at home to NC State last Saturday, while UConn enters off a third straight setback, getting spanked 49-24 at No. 12 UCF last Saturday. 

If recent history is any precedence, then the Eagles have to be liking their chances today as they have in fact won the last five in this series, including a 30-0 victory at home last November 19th.

BC needs just one more win to become bowl eligible, so it won’t be leaving anything to chance this evening. 

The Eagles average 23.3 PPG and concede 24. QB Anthony Brown has 1,367 yards, 11 TD’s and nine INT’s, while RB Jon Hillman has 441 yards and three scores as well. 

The Huskies average 24.8 PPG and concede 39.4 QB Bryant Shirreffs has 2,287 passing yards, 14 TD’s and five INT’s. 

I’ll point out though that BC is 4-0-1 ATS in its last five after allowing less than 20 points in its previous contest, while UConn is a poor 5-22-2 ATS in its last 29 non-conference contests. 

BC is good defensively and it won’t be lacking for motivation tonight. I’m expecting another rout from start to finish. Lay the points.

Good luck…Larry

My 8* ODDSMAKER’S ERROR is on Kentucky (3:30 EST).

The 7-3 Kentucky Wildcats are at No. 7 Georgia to take on the 9-1 Bulldogs on Saturday afternoon and for a number of different reasons, I think this one favors the visitors.

Georgia was crushed 40-17 by Auburn last week and I think it’ll have a predictable letdown here.

Kentucky enters with a ton of momentum, posting the 44-21 road win over Vanderbilt last Saturday. 

Note that this is a revenge game for the Wildcats as well after Georgia edged Kentucky 27-24 on the road last year. 

Last week Kentucky posted 427 total yards and forced four INTS’s and held the Commodores to just 60 yards rushing on 20 carries. 

Wildcats’ QB Stephen Johnson was 13 of 17 for 195 yards and was complimented by RB Ben Snell Jr. who has 116 yards and three TD’s. Note that Kentucky has been exceptional against the run this year, holding opponents to just 121.9 YPG thus far.

Georgia RB Nick Chubb was held to 27 yards on 11 carries last week. QB Jake From was 13 of 28 for 184 yards and one meaningless TD at the end of the game. 

I’ll point out that Kentucky is 2-0 ATS in its last two as a road dog of 21.5 points or more, while Georgia is 0-3 ATS in its last three as a favorite in the 21.5 to 31 points range. 

I like the Wildcats to take advantage of a Bulldogs team still dwelling on last week’s loss and while I’ll stop short in calling for the outright upset, I do absolutely expect this one to be a lot closer than what the oddsmaker’s are leading us to believe.

Grab the points, play on Kentucky.

My 9* PERFECT STORM is on Baylor (2:30 EST). 

Iowa State became bowl eligible and has since dropped two straight. The Cyclones will look to get back on track here, but I think that the home side offers great value in an upset role.

The Cyclones are now also officially out of contention for the Big 12 title after falling to Oklahoma State last weekend. Can anyone say “letdown spot?!” 

Iowa State QB Kyle Kempt left at halftime with an injury last week, forcing Zeb Noland into action and while the backup looked good in the 49-42 defeat in his limited time, starting on the road even at lowly Baylor is a tall order and a quick turnaround. 

After beating Kansas, the Bears fell 38-24 to Texas Tech last Saturday. QB Charlie Brewer was 43 of 63 for 417 yards, three TD’s and one INT. I like Brewer to carry over his momentum here in front of the home town crowd.

Note that Iowa State is just 4-6 ATS in its last ten on field turf, while Baylor is 8-5 ATS in its last 13 as an underdog. 

The Bears are terrible, but Brewer has been a bright spot. I like the gun-slinger to keep his team in this one late, so grab as many points as you can.

Good luck…Larry

My 9* LAS VEGAS INSIDER is on Illinois (3:30 EST).

The 2-8 Fighting Illini are in Ohio to take the 8-2 Buckeyes and while I’m obviously not expecting an upset today, I do definitely feel this is a few too many points to be giving up.

The Illini come in off a 24-14 loss to Indiana, while Ohio State bounced back from a setback to Iowa to smash Michigan State 48-3 at home. 

Note that when these teams played last year, not surprisingly it was Ohio State which scored the 28-3 victory. 

Illinois QB Jeff George Jr. has 1,273 passing yards, seven TD’s and ten INT’s. Last week he went for 261 yards, two TD’s and two INT’s. 

Ohio State QB JT Barrett looked a lot better last week, but he still threw two INT’s. Barrett has 2,564 passing yards and 30 TD’s this year. 

I’ll point out though that Illinois is 2-0 ATS in its last two as an underdog of 31 points or more, while Ohio State is just 1-6 ATS in its last seven as a favorite of 31 points or more.

I think this line is an over-reaction to last week’s annihilation of the Spartans. Clearly the Buckeyes are the better team, but Illinois has been competitve in most games this year and it’s defense is a strong point. Grab the points, play on the Illini.

Good luck…Larry

My 8* Situational Stunner is on Virgnia (12:00 EST).

Virginia is bowl eligible already, but it comes off its third loss in its last four games, falling 38-21 at Louisville last weekend. Miami can now feel the pressure as it’s still unbeaten after steamrolling Notre Dame 41-8 last week. 

Note that this is a revenge game for Virginia as well, as Miami has taken the last two, including 34-14 on the road on November 12, 2016. 

The Cavs rank 47th in the country in passing offense with an average of 251.8 YPG. Overall the team ranks 85th in scoring with 25.8 PPG, while ranked 67th on the defensive side by conceding 26.6 points.

QB Kurt Benkert has 2,492 yards, 21 TD’s and just seven INT’s. RB Olamide Zaccheaus has caught 70 passes for 727 yards, four TD’s and had added 22 carries for 153 yards and another score on the ground.

Miami averages 32.6 PPG, while conceding just 16.6. QB Malik Rosier has 2,410 yards, 20 TD’s and seven INT’s. RB Travis Homer has 758 yards and six scores on the ground. 

I’ll point out though that Virginia is 3-1 ATS this year against teams with winning records and 16-9 ATS in its last 25 when playing the role of underdog. 

I think the Hurricanes manage the win, but I like Virginia to keep this one much more interesting than what the oddsmakers are leading us to believe. Grab the points.

My 10* Oddsmaker’s Error is on Indiana (6:00 EST).

The 2-1 South Florida Bulls get ready to battle the 1-2 Hoosiers and for a number of different reasons, I think this one favors Indiana.

So far the Hoosiers have lost to Indiana State and Seton Hall, while the Bulls come to Assembly Hall off a win over lowly Stetson on Wednesday. 

It wasn’t easy for USF either, edging Stetson 75-72 in the end. So far four Bulls are averaging double-digits, led by Tulio DaSilva, with 14 PPG in the early going. 

For Indiana you’ll want to keep your eyes on sophomore forward De’Ron Davis, who leads the team in scoring with 11.7 PPG thus far. The Hoosiers have been getting decent production from their bench, which averages 29 PPG, with four different reserves averaging double figures.

Defense has been the main issue for Indiana early, but the Hoosiers catch a break here facing the impotent Bulls.

I’ll point out as well that South Florida is a poor 5-8 ATS in its last 13 against teams with losing records and 0-2 ATS in its last two against poor defensive teams which allow 77 plus points per contest, while Indiana is 2-0 ATS in its last two after failing to cover the spread in three or more consecutive contests.

I like the Hoosiers to continue their solid offensive play and to finally show up on the defensive side as well. Beating Stetson is one thing, but contending with a focused Hoosiers team which to this point has drastically underperformed is quite another. Lay the poitns with confidence, play on Indiana.

Good luck…Larry

My 10* Situational Stunner is on the LA Lakers (9:35 EST).

I think Denver has a letdown here after its big 146-114 home win over New Orleans on Friday. It was the team’s fourth win in its last five games. 

Conversely, it’s going to be all hands on deck for the young Lakers who lost for the fifth time in six games, falling at home to Phoenix 122-113 on Friday. 

This is a revenge game for LA as well, as Denver has won four of the last five in the series, including taking two of three last year. 

Denver averages 108.5 PPG and concedes 105.4. Paul Millsap leads the way with 16 points and 6.3 boards per game, while Will Barton adds 14.1 points. Big man Nikola Jokic contributes 16.2 points, 11.6 boards and 4.7 assists per game. 

LA averages 104.3 PPG and concedes 107.4. Brook Lopez averges 15.1 points and 4.9 boards per game, while Brandon Ingram adds 14.9 points. Despite his recent struggles, Lonzo Ball adds 8.8 points, 6.6 boards and 6.8 assists per game. 

I’ll point out as well that Denver is just 1-5 ATS this year against teams with losing records and 0-3 ATS this season after scoring 115 points or more, while LA is 3-2 ATS against clubs with winning recrds and 5-4 ATS against good offensive teams which average 106 plus points per contest.

I think the desperation in which the Lakers play with tonight, turns out to be the difference. Grab the points.

My 9* O/U Weekend Wipeout Winner under Eagles/Cowboys (8:30 EST).

Philadelphia won its seventh straight in its 51-23 demolition of the Broncos on November 4th. The team then had its bye last week.

Dallas had its three-game win streak snapped in a 27-7 loss on the road in Atlanta last Sunday. 

The Eagles are so far second in the league in scoring by averaging 31.4 PPG, while ranked tenth on the defensive side by conceding 19.9. QB Carson Wentz has 2,262 yards, 23 TD’s and five INT’s thus far. 

Philadelphia has a dynamic run game which is led by LeGarrette Blount, who has 504 yards and two TD’s thus far. 

Dallas comes in ranked eighth in the league in scoring with an average of 25.9 PPG, while ranked 17th on the defensive side by conceding 22.8. QB Dak Prescott has 1,994 yards, 16 TD’s and four INT’s thus far. 

This is clearly a big game for Dallas, which would fall even further behind the Eagles in the divisoin race with a loss. Look for the home side to try and control the pace of this one while on offense as much as possible, so as to limit the time Wentz and company are on the field of play. 

I’ll point out as well that Philadelphia has seen the total go under the number in 13 of its last 23 when playing the role of favorite, while Dallas has seen the total dip below the posted number in four of its last five home games when the total in the contest is set between 45.5 and 49 points. 

The Cowboys’ offense has struggled without RB Ezekiel Elliot in the lineup and things aren’t going to get any easier tonight.

I look for these divisional foes to battle tough and for this total to ultimately fall below the number once it’s all said and done.

My 8* PERFECT STORM is on the LA Chargers (4:05 EST).

The Bills were destroyed 47-10 at home to New Orleans last weekend, a beatdown so bad that the team has benched QB Tyrod Taylor in favor of backup Nate Peterman moving forward. Peterman was 7 of ten for 79 yards and a TD last week. 

Buffalo comes in ranked 28th in the league in total offense with just 292 YPG and 19th in scoring with 20.4 PPG, while the defense has been middle-of-the-pack, allowing 21.8, ranked 15th.

The Chargers rank 23rd in scoring with 18.6 PPG, while ranked ninth on the defensive side by conceding just 19.1 PPG. 

LA comes into this one with four losses of three points or fewer (after having five losses of four points or fewer last season.) 

The Chargers’ run game has been a weak point, but the Bills have been gouged for 492 yards on the ground over the last two weeks combined.

Last week LA QB Philip Rivers was 21 of 37 for 235 yards, two TD’s and an INT. 

I’ll point out that the Bills are just 1-11 ATS in their last 12 following a double-digit loss at home, while the Chargers are 5-1 ATS in their last six in this series in front of the home town crowd.

If Melvin Gordon is going to have a break out performance, then this is the team to have it against. Rivers is going to have plenty of opportunities as well against this Bills team which is once again searching for an identity in all three phases. 

Lay the points with confidence as the Bolts lay down the hammer at home.

My 9* SITUATIONAL STUNNER is on the LA Rams (1:00 EST).

The Vikes have now won five in a row, coming out of their bye and getting the better of the Redskins last week. 

LA also comes in on top form, with wins over the Jags, Cards, Giants and Texans.

Last week the Rams posted the 33-7 victory over Houston. Jared Goff and Todd Gurley lead a dynamic offense, while the LA defense has been better than orginally advertised. 

Minnesota has Case Keenum under center now and he so far has 11 TD’s and five INT’s. Keenum has thrown at least one INT in four straight games and he had two in last week’s 38-30 win over Washington.

I’ll point out that LA is already 3-1 ATS on the road this year and 7-4 ATS in its last 11 “dome” games, while Minnesota is just 1-2 ATS in its last three after scoring 35 points or more in its previous contest. 

Ultimately I think that LA’s depth on the offensive side of the ball will win the day over the Vikes league leading defensive unit. Grab the points, play on the Rams.

My 8* ODDSMAKER’S ERROR is on the Chicago Bears (1:00 EST).

The 5-4 Detroit Lions are in Chicago to take on the 3-6 Bears and for a number of different reasons, I think this one favors the home side. 

Detroit comes in off a 38-14 win over Cleveland, while Chicago dropped a tough 23-16 decision at home to Green Bay. 

These teams split a pair of games last year, each being decided by a single field goal.

Detroit QB Matt Stafford has a 17/5 TD/INT ratio this year. Last weekend RB Ameer Abdullah had 52 yards on the ground, part of 104 total for the Lions. Stafford had 249 yards, three TD’s and an INT. 

The Lions looked poor defensively though, conceding 413 yards, including 201 on the ground.

Chicago allowed 342 total yards to the Packers last week. QB Mitchell Trubisky was 21 of 35 for 297 yards, a TD and no INT’s. Trubisky looked more comfortable last week and I expect that progression to once again get carried over here. RB Jeremy Howard had 54 yards on 15 carries. 

The strength of the Bears’ defense is against the pass, which is also in Chicago’s favor facing the Lions’ pass-centric offense.

I’ll point out as well that Detroit is just 1-3 ATS in its last four after two or more consecutive SU wins, while Chicago is 6-3 ATS in its last nine off a loss against a division rival.

I’m expecting a nail-biter. Grab the points, play on the Bears.

The 4-5 Baltimore Ravens are in Green Bay to take on the 5-4 Packers and for a number of different reasons, I think this one favors the home side.

Baltimore last played on November 5th in Tennessee and lost to the Titans 23-20. 

Green Bay comes in with momentum with Brett Hundley under center, coming off an upset 23-16 victory at Chicago last Sunday. 

In the Ravens latest loss, QB Joe Flacco had 261 yards, two TD’s and two INT’s. The run game posted just 73 yards on 22 carries. 

Overall Baltimore is ranked 30th in total offense by averaging 286.6 YPG, while ranked in the middle of the pack defensively, allowing 184.7 YPG through the air and 125.9 on the ground. 

Green Bay ranks 23rd in total offense with an average of 313.7 YPG, while ranked 24th in total defense by conceding 353.6. Hundley though has started to find his groove and will benefit today from playing in front of the home town crowd.

I’ll point out as well that Baltimore is just 1-8 ATS in its last nine non-conference games (including 0-2 ATS this year) and just 7-12 ATS in its last 19 when playing the role of favorite, while Green Bay is 8-1 ATS in its last nine off a win against a division rival and 9-6 ATS in its last 15 as an underdog.

The Ravens were in “free fall” before their bye and I don’t think the extra time off is going to help their issues. Hundley meanwhile has gotten progressively better with each start and I look for that trend to continue on Sunday afternoon.

Play on Green Bay.

Good luck…Larry

SERVICE BIO

Age: 63 (turns 64 in November).

Years in handicapping: Larry entered his 34th year in the industry in August of 2017.

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, the nation’s longest running pre-game handicapping show on the USA-TV network (also hosted Sports Desk on the same network). 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 30-plus years, you get good at it."

34-Club Play: It represents Larry's 34 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, through the internet. Like his 34-Club plays, expect no more than one play per month, per sport (rated 10*s).

PERFECT STORM: Larry just added these plays the last few years and his accompanying expert analysis makes these popular plays self-explanatory (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 just started releasing these plays in MLB '09 and he's expanded them since, to all sports (rated 8, 9 or 10*s).

Las Vegas Insider: Throughout his 34 years, Larry has become known as "the ultimate Las Vegas insider." The contacts he's developed over more than two 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 8 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 between 8 and 10*s).

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 8 and 10*s).

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).

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!" Almost every Saturday (college) and Sunday (NFL) this football season, get three plays on a single report from Larry (many will be TV games), the originator of the "Superstar Triple Play!"

Release Times: Larry likes to release his picks early so that clients have as much time as possible to shop around. NFL and College Football plays are posted very early in the week (sometimes almost up to a week in advance.) NBA, College hoops and NHL are all posted the day before the game goes off. And the same goes for MLB, with selections posted the night before the game. Sometimes life gets in the way and Ness won't release until the morning of the game, but for the majority of the year Larry likes to say: "The earlier the better!" 

Sports and conferences he excels at handicapping: MLB is Larry's favorite sports to handicap, saying the money is in the statistics. He 'loves' the daily action and the long season. "If I had to pick one sport, I would chose baseball because you’re playing pitchers, streaks, teams that are hot and cold," Ness says. "I also love the NBA and NFL playoffs, the college bowl games plus the college basketball tourneys, which are seasons unto themselves."

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."
