College Football Season Subscription of Stephen Nover

College presents opportunities that the NFL doesn't where sometimes you can actually find line value. I've beaten the colleges the past three years by combining many handicapping factors such as matchup analysis, statistics, history, weather and situational elements. Information is the key. I'm fortunate that I have many sources to rely on. Many stem from having been a sportswriter/sports editor for daily newspapers in the Midwest, South and West for more than 20 years and having been the sports gaming writer for the Las Vegas Review-Journal for 13 years while also having covered the UNLV football team as the team beat writer for several years. I have the knowledge, experience and resources necessary to win. I've won the past three years and I expect to turn a tidy profit again this season.

Matchup Selection W/L
MLB  |  Aug 12, 2022
Yankees vs Red Sox
-110 at BetVegas
Play Type: Free

Now that the line has dropped to where I see value, I'm going to back the Yankees here. Yes, the Yankees have been playing their worst ball losing eight of their last 10. They still are vastly superior to Boston, though, having won 17 more games than the Red Sox. It's not like the Red Sox have been playing well either. They've dropped 19 of their last 26 games. 

The pitching matchup is Domingo German versus Nathan Eovaldi. German is beginning to round into form coming off his best start holding the Cardinals to one run in five innings this past Saturday. 

Eovaldi's 4.23 ERA is up from the past two seasons. He's had difficulty pitching at Fenway Park this season with a 6.81 ERA and 1.60 WHIP there. His barrel rate is among the worst among qualified starting pitchers. That's a major concern against a powerful Yankees squad that leads the majors in homers with 190. Eovaldi gave up two homers to the offensively-challenged Royals in his last start. The Royals rank 26th in homers. 

The Yankees hold a huge bullpen edge, too. New York's relievers have a combined ERA of 2.98, second-lowest in baseball. The Red Sox rank 26th in bullpen ERA at 4.45. 

New York has defeated Boston in 12 of the past 17 meetings. Look for the Yankees to get right again in this matchup. 

(Editor's note: Stephen Nover is one of the hottest handicappers going 46-28 on his last 74 premium/free plays. Stephen is unbeaten in NFL preseason, 13-7 on his last 20 WNBA plays and is up more than 20 units in baseball this season. Stephen has plays on each of these sports today. They can be purchased individually, or at a special discounted package rate.) 

Matchup Selection W/L
MLB  |  Aug 12, 2022
Tigers vs White Sox
UNDER 8½ -120 Won
Play Type: Premium
The Tigers have gone Under 69 percent of the time during their last 67 games against a righty starter. They face right-handed Michael Kopech today. Kopech, who has a 3.14 ERA when pitching at home, should be able to handle the worst offense in baseball. Detroit ranks last in many offensive categories, including runs, homers and OPS. This shapes up to be a bullpen game for the Tigers with Daniel Norris getting the start. The Tigers rank fifth in lowest bullpen ERA. The White Sox have scored 3 or fewer runs during seven of their last eight games. They are minus star shortstop Tim Anderson.  So look for the White Sox to go Under for the 10th time in their last 13 games. 
Matchup Selection W/L
WNBA  |  Aug 12, 2022
Wings vs Mercury
+1½ -110 at Caesars
Play Type: Premium

The Mercury is a home underdog to Dallas. A big reason for this is Phoenix will be without its best player, guard Skylar Diggins-Smith, due to personal reasons. But the situation trumps this development. The Mercury are in a four-way tie for the final two playoff spots. This is their second to last game. They close the regular season against the much tougher defending WNBA champion Sky. This game means nothing to Dallas. The Wings have clinched the No. 6 seed in the playoffs. They are locked into that playoff seeding.

So the game means nothing to Dallas. But do the Mercury still have enough talent to beat even a disinterested Wings squad without Diggins-Smith and injured Diana Taurasi? Yes. They have outstanding guards even minus Diggins-Smith with Diamond DeShields, Shey Peddy and Sophie Cunningham, perhaps the most improved player in the league. The Mercury showed that when they defeated the Liberty, another playoff contender, by 10 points at home this past Saturday without Diggins-Smith and Taurasi.

Phoenix is 10-6 at home this season. Dallas is without a key player, too, as its leading scorer, Arike Ogunbowale, is out with a hip injury.

Browns vs Jaguars
+1½ +100 at Ace
Play Type: Top Premium

The announcement that Deshaun Watson is going to start has caused a switch of favorites in this game. Cleveland is now road chalk. The marketplace has this wrong. The Jaguars should win this game. 

The Jaguars laid an egg against the Raiders in the Hall of Fame game. But now the Jaguars have played a game and are home here. Those are key situational edges. Watson hasn't played since January of 2021. He's learning a new offense and isn't likely to play very long. The Browns are run-oriented. However, their two best running backs - Nick Chubb and Kareem Hunt - are not expected to play. 

Jacksonville coach Doug Pederson has more of a sense of urgency than Browns coach Kevin Stefanski. The Jaguars fell behind the Raiders, 20-0, at halftime. Keep in mind, the Jaguars didn't play their top two QB's, Trevor Lawrence and C.J. Beathard, against Las Vegas.

Peterson is going to play a lot of starters here. Lawrence, Travis Etienne and the rest of Jacksonville's first-string offense will get at least a couple of series. Lawrence has looked good in training camp. So has Etienne. The Jaguars upgraded their wide receiving corps. Lawrence needs game time work with them. This is that opportunity. There will be many defensive starters playing, too, for Jacksonville. The Jaguars outscored the Raiders, 11-7, in the second half. Jacksonville had five sacks against Las Vegas. 

I would rather have Beathard than either of the Browns' third and fourth-string QB's, Josh Dobbs and Josh Rosen. Those two figure to see the bulk of action for Cleveland.
