LAS VEGAS — Most of you are too young to remember the singer Meat Loaf, however, the man said two from three aint bad. That is exactly what we published in this area, setting the past few columns at 8-2. Well require 80%
Back on the Baseball Board, although the Tigers have become all of the sportsbooks DARLINGS here in Vegas and around the Earth, dont think theyre gonna be able to solve Jose Berrios at home in Minnesota. Bet the game last night at roughly -230 when Boyd was the starter for Detroit, however they have shifted to VerHagen, and the line jumped to -320. However Enjoy the Twinkies, however, will scale the wager .
And if you are in the neighborhood, try the Cards using Jack Flaherty within the Rockies. Why? Flaherty has launched four games since the beginning of August, allowing just one TEENY-TINY made run on 26 innings. Got out the calculator, punched in a few numbers, and it spit out a 0.35 ERA. Yeah, you heard me, ZERO point THREE FIVE. And as my father always said, any time you see an ERA using a ZERO since the first number, start the wallet!!!
Currently, STAND UP for a few actual, live, bettable College Football actions tomorrow. If youre a geek, then you have likely noticed this one. Florida is 27-1 in games that are launching the previous 28 decades. TWENTY-SEVEN wins and only one loss. Very amazing, yeah. However, when you schedule the Charleston Southerns of this world, a W is guaranteed. On the other hand, the one loss came 2017, on, yes, a NEUTRAL FIELD back from Michigan. This match is currently in Orlando, and it is STILL a field that is neutral, whether it is nearer to Gainesville than Miami. Thinking that the Gators are gonna squeeze a win, however, using just one returning starter on the offensive line, provide the cover to the Hurricanes (+7 points) and first-year head coach Manny Diaz.
Looked at late night at Hawaii, and if wed like to jump onto a double-digit home puppy, the Rainbow Warriors, the Pac-12 (Zona Wildcats) just may be too much to get a middle-of-the-road Mountain West squad. Taking a hall pass.
Anybody play the ponies??? My man Martin Mac has some words about the Travers Stakes in Saratoga.
It looks like we are going to have dry track for your Travers. Dropping money and some love on Code of Honor. He has been working good top up to this race and comes off a win at the Grade 3 Dwyer In Belmont. So were throwing $50 around the nose, $25 to put , and $25 to show.
