Seattle (+6.5), Nov Game of the Month, wins OUTRIGHT. Larry's now 43-27-1, +$12,303 with all NFL releases YTD, as well as being on a 15-4 (79%) run with NFL 10*s. CBB, NBA & NHL set for Tuesday (see promos).
Larry's CBB Revenge Game of the Month (Blowout Alert!)

Larry opened the new CBB week with a win/push/loss on San Francisco (won by 5 with the line fluctuating between 4.5 & 5.5). That's the nature of a CBB season that won't end until April's Final Four. Larry bounces back with a Tuesday doubleheader, including this "Best Bet" Revenge Game of the Month. The term "revenge' is often over-used but NOT in this case!

Larry's NBA 10* PERFECT STORM (10-2, 83% NBA run!)

Larry passed in the NBA on Monday but is "back at work" on Tuesday and regulars couldn't be happier. This 36-year vet has won 10 of his last 12 NBA releases (83%) going back to Oct 30, earning a profit of $7,790 (at $100/unit). There's a 'storm brewing' in one NBA city tonight, so "batten down the hatches" for his latest 10* PERFECT STORM!

Larry's NHL 10* Division G.O.M. (62% run s/Oct 16)

Larry's a PERFECT 7-0 with his NHL "Big Plays" in the current season (Game of the Week, Game of the Month & "signature" releases). However, it's a long NHL season and every release can't be a "Big Play." Larry enters Tuesday on a 62% run with all NHL plays since Oct 16 and his Tuesday Division Game of the Month does earn a top rating of 10*s. Your move!

*This package includes 1 NHL Money Line pick

Larry's CBB 10* Top-15 Showdown (13 Memphis / 14 Oregon)

Larry opened the new CBB week with a win/push/loss on San Francisco, as the Dons won by 5 with the line fluctuating between 4.5 & 5.5. That's the nature of a college hoops season that won't end until April's Final Four. Larry bounces back with a Tuesday doubleheader, highlighted by his 10* Top-15 Showdown on No. 13 Memphis vs No. 14 Oregon. You in?

Yale vs San Francisco
San Francisco
-5½ -109 at pinnacle
Play Type: Top Premium

My 10* Situational Stunner is on San Francisco at 9:00 ET. Yale's James Jones is the longest tenured coach in the Ivy League. He's led the Bulldogs to three Ivy championships in the last five seasons, including two NCAA appearances. The 2015-16 season was special, as Yale won 23 games (the most since 1906-07) and advanced to the NCAA Tournament for the first time in 54 years where the Bulldogs upset Baylor to earn the first NCAA Tournament victory in Yale history. Last season wasn't bad either, as Jones guided Yale to Ivy League regular season and tournament titles and a 22-8 overall record. The Bulldogs knocked off Harvard in a thrilling Ivy League Tournament championship game and then nearly upset third-seeded LSU in the NCAA Tournament. Yale has opened 2-0 but gets a real test tonight, when the school visits the San Francisco Dons, who have also started 2-0. San Francisco saw head coach Tyler Smith, after three straight 20-win seasons, leave to take the Washington St job. However, his assistant coach, Todd Golden takes over. The Dons are thrilled with his promotion, as he played at St Marry's and has worked under Smith at Columbia and here at San Francisco, with a 'pit stop' under Bruce Pearl at Auburn, in between. Yale lost four starters (as well as its top-three scorers) of last year's team. Most notable, is the loss of Ivy League POY Miye Oni (17.1 & 6.3). However, Jones feels that the 6-10 Atkinson and guard Swain are almost returning starters, as each played in every game last season. He may be right about that, as Atkinson is averaging 19.0 & 4.5 and Swain 14.0 & 4.5. The team's lone returning starter, the 6-9 Bruner (10.4 & 8.3 LY), is averaging a double-double to open this season at 10.0 & 10.5 The Dons love Golden's pedigree but he will have to replace the heart and soul of last year's team, PG Ferrari (14.7 &5.5 APG). That said, the current team looks very solid and balanced. The Dons have started a trio of guards in Mineland (15.5 & 4.), Bouyea (13.0 & 6.0) and Ratinho (13.0), while Central Washington transfer Shabazz (11.0 & 6.5) looks like an excellent addition. The 7-0 Lull (12.0 & 8.0) and the 6-8 Kunen (7.5 & 7.0) start up front, with the 6-9 Raitanen (6.5 & 5.5) coming off the bench. This contest begins a tough stretch for Yale, which plays at Oklahoma St (11/17) and Penn St (11/23) a part of the NIT Season Tip-Off. San Francisco opens with SIX of its first seven at home and will take the court tonight on a nine-game November winning streak. The Dons went 7-0 in November of 2018 and have opened 2-0 here in 2019. The Dons beat two Ivy League schools in last November's 7-0 run (Harvard and Dartmouth) plus beat Princeton by 10 Saturday at Chase Center (Warriors new home) and will take a seven-game winning streak against Ivy League opponents into tonight's contest. "The Price is Right" and I'm taking the home team. Good luck...Larry

DePaul vs Iowa
-9 -108 at pinnacle
Play Type: Free
My free play is on Iowa at 8:00 ET. DePaul made a great run in the CBI last season, reaching the best-of-three championship final, before losing Game 3 at home to USF, 77-65. The Blue Demons were just 15-15 during the regular season but guards Strus (20.1 & 5.9) and Cain (13.3) plus the 6-9 Olujobi (12.9 & 5.4) led that strong tourney run. However, all three are gone in 2019-20. DePaul has opened 3-0 but has yet to be really tested, winning home games over Alcorn St, Chicago and Fairleigh Dickinson. Depaul heads out on the road for the first time this season, as it visits Iowa City Monday night to take on Iowa, as part of the Gavitt Tipoff games. The Hawkeyes cruised past SIU-Edwardsville 87-60 to register their ninth consecutive season-opening victory, coming off a 22-win season in which Iowa returned to the "Big Dance" after a 14-win season the year before. PG Charlie Moore started at Cal and then moved to Kansas, before landing at DePaul. He made five 3-pointers en route to a team-high 27 points to go along with four assists and a pair of steals in Friday's 70-59 win over Fairleigh Dickinson. He leads the team in scoring (19.3) and assists (5.0) but he is the team's lone contributor on the perimeter. DePaul's strength is a starting frontcourt of returning players like the 6-9 Butz (12.0 & 6.7) and the 6-9 Reed (11.3 & 9.7) plus highly-touted 6-7 freshman Weems (9.3 & 4.3). Iowa lost the 6-8 Tyler Cook (14.5 & 7.6) and the underappreciated 6-7 Baer up front, plus guards Moss and Dailey transferred. However, the good news is that guard Jordan Bohannon, a "big shot" specialist who has averaged in double digits in three straight season, played 19 minutes and scored nine points in Iowa's first game (he has recovered from hip surgery and there was no guarantee that he would be able to play this season). It looks like he'll be able to join  a deep group of guards that include sophomore Wieskamp (11.1 & 4.9 as a freshman), red-shirt freshman Fredrick and Connor McCaffrey, son of head coach Fran McCaffrey.  Wieskamp scored 16 points in Iowa's first game, McCaffrey had seven points and Fredrick four points and four assists. Up front, the 6-11 C]Garza had 20 & 12 (averaged 12.1 & 13.1 PPG the L2 years) plus the 6-11 Nunge started alongside Garza. However, the 6-10 Krienner added 9 & 5 off the bench, while 6-9 freshman Patrick McCaffrey had 4 & 4 (yes, he's Connor's brother). Iowa takes the court having won 18 straight non-conference home games and is 60-4 in non-conference home games since 2012. Meanwhile, DePaul has struggled against Big Ten teams in the last four years, dropping EIGHT consecutive games, including losses to Penn State (68-62), Rutgers (66-59) and Illinois (82-73) in the Gavitt Games before ending that skid with a 72-70 overtime victory against the Nittany Lions last season. DePaul will play a program-record eight games in the month of November but this is NOT one the Blue Demons will win. Lay it with Iowa. Good luck...Larry

Seahawks vs 49ers
+7 -130 at 5Dimes
Play Type: Top Premium

My NFL 10* Nov Game of the Month is on the Sea Seahawks at 8:15 ET.

Who'da thunk it? Jim Harbaugh took over the San Francisco 49ers in 2011 and led them to THREE straight NFC championship games and one Super Bowl. However, after an 8-8 season in 2014, both Harbaugh and the 49ers had had enough of each other. Tomsula lasted one season (5-11) and Kelly one (2-14), before Kyle Shanahan was hired. His 49ers went 6-10 and 4-12 his first two seasons but here in 2019, when the Ravens knocked off the Pats in Week 9's SNF game, the San Francisco 49ers found themselves as the NFL's lone remaining undefeated team. The 49ers have some extra rest (played the Thursday night game in Week 9) and they'll need every edge they can get, as Russell Wilson (leading MVPcandidiate?) leads the Seattle Seahawks into Levi's Stadium. Seattle is 7-2 and win would leave them just a half-game back of San Francisco in the NFC West. This once-fierce rivalry between the Seattle Seahawks and San Francisco had a bit of everything during a heated stretch early this decade but with the departure of Harbaugh, most of the steam came out of the rivalry. In fact, this is the first time since Thanksgiving night in 2014, where both teams have a winning record.

No QB is playing better than Russell Wilson, who has a 22-to-1 touchdown-to-interception ratio and has posted a passer rating of 102 or higher in eight of nine games. He's completing 68.3% for 2,505 yards and his QB rating of 118.2 is tops in the league. Tyler Lockett (team-high 59 catches and six TDs) has developed into Wilson's top target but note that rookie DK Metcalf is a star in the making, with 29 catches (18.1 YPC) with five TDs. Seattle led the NFL in rushing last season (160.0 YPG) but the team checks in averaging 131.7 YPG on the ground this season (7th). However, RB Carson is coming on strong. After totaling only 158 yards in Seattle's first three games, he's had 100-plus in FOUR of his last six (764 yards on the season). Seattle is a legitimate NFC title contender but its "Legion of Boom" defense is a thing of the past, as the Seahawks are allowing 25.6 PPG (22nd) on 380.8 YPG (25th).

While QB Jimmy Garoppolo takes up a lot of 'oxygen' (more in a bit), one HAS to start with San Francisco's defense. The 49ers rank first in total D (24.10 YPG) and second in scoring D (12.8 PPG). However, the 49ers suffered a big loss last week when LB Kwon Alexander went down with a season-ending torn left pectoral muscle. He was considered the heart and soul of the defense. "Since Day 1, the defense has been what it is because of him," starting MLB Fred Warner said. "He was playing at a Pro Bowl level, but the things people didn't notice is what really made him stand apart." Getting back to Garoppolo, he threw for a personal-best four TDs and eclipsed 300 yards (317) for the third time in his career in San Francisco's 28-25 victory over Arizona on Oct 31. He's completing 70.3% of his passes but even with that four-TD effort, his ratio on the season is 13-7 (not 22-1 like Wilson). Garoppolo's 'LEGEND' is based on his record as a starter (16-2, including 14-2 with the 49ers). He's greatly helped by the NFL's second-best rushing attack (171.1 YPG), led by Matt Beida (524 yards on 5.3 YPA) plus supported by Coleman (355) and Mostert (307).

Seattle had won 10 straight in the series before a 26-23 (OT) loss at Levi’s in Week 15 of 2018. However, as noted above, San Francisco was in a "rebuilding mode" in that stretch. What has me 'loving' Seattle is this spot is Seattle going 4-0 SU on the road in 2019 and covering SIX in a row as an underdog going back to early in the 2018 season. I called Baltimore's upset in Week 9 over the Pats and predict it will be "deja vu all over again" here in Week 10, with Seattle handing San Francisco its first loss of 2019.

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."
