Editor's Note--Yeah you knew that little losing streak in the baseball wasn't gonna last long. Smashing the sportsbooks all over this fine town of "The Meadows".....That's the Spanish translation for Las Vegas for those who feel it's still a little early. Well, you better get up. We got baseball, we got the NFL, we even got an "if this happens, then bet that" bet! I kept trying to tell you it was the best time of the year. Large Richard have you emerged from your champagne and lobster celebration?!--R.B.
First off, Richie, we wish you continued luck today in Day 2 of the "Fall Classic" Horse Tournament at the Orleans Hotel and Casino, Las Vegas, Nevada, USA. Next, that was a very exciting finish to getting that UNDER in the baseball last night. After sitting on our +210 victory with the TEXAS RANGERS. Perfection is sweet.
Speaking of perfection, who is the hottest team in baseball?!? Like since the All-Star Break? Well it just happens to be the TEXAS RANGERS. Sure this little Popeye looking fella, Stroman for the Jays, has been pitching great since he came back from his injury. But in the last 10 games the wily veteran COLE HAMELS has taken the mound for the RANGERS, guess how many they've won? TEN. As in ALL. You think HAMELS is the least bit nervous? You think there's HUGE pressure on Toronto? You think the price is right? It sure as sugar is baby. +165 with TEXAS?!? Why??? Because Toronto NEEEEDS the game? Yeah that's nice. Injuries all over the place too. TEXAS is better pal. Take.
Nice UNDER last night in KC/Hou eh? Lotsa chatter about how bad Cueto and Kazmir have been for their teams since they were acquired midseason. We got a feeling things may have turned around in the last few outings. The total will be 8 in this game due to "questionable pitching". We see some snappy pitching. We see another UNDER.
Our final selection in the baseball today, is actually a potential investment for TOMORROW. "Explain that again please", you say? Well, the Dodgers are clearly expected to win tonight versus the METS. Kershaw is the man right? Well, he is 0-4 lifetime in the playoffs. Granted those losses are all against the Cardinals. However, things can happen in the playoffs. Let's just say the METS get a victory tonight? Well, tomorrow Greinke will take the mound in Los Angeles. The Dodgers will neeeeeeeeed. Desperately neeeeeeeeeed the game? Who the heck knows what the line will be but it might be +240. No joke. That's why we say "If the METS win tonight? Throw it down on the NEW YORK METROPOLITANS on Game 2 tomorrow!!" Got it? Good.
Now the NFL Sunday. You know, the place we went 3-0 last week? Yeah that NFL.
The "Championship of Florida" is at stake Sunday. The stinky Dolphins have already lost to the JAGWIRESSSSSSSSSS of JACKSONVILLE. JAX fights hard on defense. Looks like Tampa Bay is mired again in the wallow. Somehow Tampa lays 3.5 to the JAGS. Due to home field advantage? Advantage Big D and his JAGUAR backers. Take!
Those pesky CLEVELAND BROWNS are getting 6.5 at balty-more. Balty-more is a shaky call away from being 0-4. No, the BROWNIES aren't winning a lot yet outright. But they're winning a lot versus the spread. And that's where it counts in our wallets, friend. Takey Take. CLEVELAND. They always play well versus the ravens.
Finally, Monday Night has the Chargers vs the "STILLERS". Yeah we are all well aware about QB Big Ben being injured for PITTSBURGH. But Big Ben doesn't play defense. And the STEELERS seem to still be playing that. San Diego's defense scares no one. Look for a nice offensive plan from PITT and a strong defense, to get them inside the "sneaky" 3.5 points. Take the points on the Monday Night Game, baby!
Happy recap you ask? Baseball today: TEXAS+165 @ Toronto, UNDER 8 Kc/Houston. Baseball tomorrow: NY METS + whatever if they win game 1 tonight. Sunday NFL: JACKSONVILLE+3.5 @ tampa bay, CLEVELAND +6.5 @ baltimore, and Monday NFL: PITTSBURGH+3.5 @ san diego.
Good luck and god bless as we forge on here in "The Meadows" (aka Las Vegas) reeling in more cash money. And speaking of, we understand these cats will be playing in NYC on Saturday night, and some of our good pals, who couldn't make it out to Vegas, will be making this show. Classic. Enjoy.
