Patriots vs. Lions
-1 -123
in 1d

The New England Patriots have started their preseason with a 0-2 record after last weeks hard fought loss to Houston. This week being a full dress rehearsall week, I expect to the see the defending Super Bowl Champs keep alot of starters on the field for long periods of time, and for the game plan to be geared towards putting points on the board and getting the team back into a winning frame of mind. Motown while talented, have had problems moving the ball in preseason play so far, and I'm betting they won't be able to keep pace here offensively.

Patriots have covered 5 straight on filed turf and 8-1 ATS L/9 road games. Lions are 0-5 ATS in their L/5 overall, and 0-5 ATS in their L/5 on field turf. 

NFL preseason 0-2 teams  like New England in Game Three and are  an

away favorite or dog  of 2  points or less are 23-6 ats  L/29 for a 79% conversion rate for bettors,

UNDER 9½ -120 Won
Play Type: Premium

Tonights pitching matchup - featyres Right-hander Mike Fiers (7-8, 4.32 ERA) going to the hill for the Astros. Right-hander Edwin Jackson (4-2, 3.43 ERA) will start for the Nationals.Jackson has won back-to-back starts, allowing just two runs over 13 innings in is currently in the best form of the season.  Jackson has posted a strong 1.11 WHIP in six starts for the Nationals and has struck out 29 while issuing only eight walks. Meanwhile, Friers, the Astros starter despite of some ugly outings lately, is still a sold hurler, that has performed well against the Nationals in the past, as is evident by a 2-1 record along  with a 2.45 ERA over four career outings (including two starts) against the Nationals.

Only one of Washingtons L/11 games have gone over the total allowing an average of 1.9 rpg during that span, On 5 different occasions during this 11 game run, they have allowed just 1 run. Meanwhile, the Astros have gone over only two times in their L/13 games, and have gone under 5 straight times , allowing an average of 2.4 rpg. I'm betting this total score will also land on the low side of the number.

JACKSON is 10-1 UNDER L/11 when the total is 8.5 to 10 dating back to last season with a combined 5.8 rpg going on the board. FIERS is 22-8 UNDER  in career starts when playing against a good team (Win Pct. 54% to 62%) with a combined average of 6.6 rpg scored.

WASHINGTON is 21-8 UNDER  L/29 as an underdog of +125 to +175 with a combined average score of 7 rpg going on the board.WASHINGTON is 11-3 UNDER  when playing against a good team (Win Pct. 54% to 62%) this season with a combined average of 6.8 rpg going on the scoreboard.

Under is 9-0-2 in Nationals last 11 overall.Under is 9-0 in Nationals last 9 interleague games.Under is 8-0 in Nationals last 8 vs. American League West.Under is 5-1 in Jacksons last 6 starts overall.Under is 5-0 in Astros last 5 home games.Under is 20-7-1 in Astros last 28 interleague home games vs. a team with a winning record.Under is 6-0 in the last 6 meetings in Houston.

MLB Road teams where the total is 9 to 9.5 like the Nationals  - with an on base percentage of .260 or worse over their last 3 games, with a hot bullpen whose WHIP is under 1.250 the last 15 games are 60-33 under during the past 5 seasons.

NYY Severino (10-5, 3.18 ERA) is in top form and  has won five of his past six starts, including his last outing when he held the New York Mets to one run, which was unearned, in 6 1/3 innings while striking out nine. Meanwhile, Zimmerman his Motown pitching opponent, has not fared well in his L/2 starts, but is more than capable of coming back big, against a team he has done well against in the recent past. Zimmermann owns  a 3-0 record along with a miniscule 1.33 ERA in four outings against them. He tossed seven shutout innings against New York on Aug. 2 at Yankee Stadium.

Yesterday these teams put a combined 17 runs on the board in a Yankees 13-4 win, but today I expect a much lower scoring affair.NY YANKEES are 16-5 UNDER    in road games after a game with a combined score of 15 runs or more scored with a combined average of 7 rpg going on the scoreboard.

NY YANKEES are 12-3 UNDER  in road games vs. a starting pitcher whose gives up 1 or more HR's/start this season with a combined average of 6.5 rpg getting scored.

Under is 6-1 in Yankees last 7 road games vs. a team with a losing home record.Under is 15-7-1 in Yankees last 23 road games.Under is 10-3-1 in Yankees last 14 road games vs. a right-handed starter.Under is 5-2-1 in the last 8 meetings.

Diamondbacks vs Mets

DBacks starter Godley (5-6, 3.13 ERA) is scheduled to oppose  NY Mets starter Flexen (2-2, 6.55) in a matchup of right-handers.Godley has allowed two runs or fewer in 10 of 18 starts.

Godley is 1-0 with a 1.80 ERA in three career appearances (two starts) against the Mets. Flexen has never faced the Diamondbacks. According to my own power rankings the DBacks have a bigger edge than the moneyline would indicate making them a solid investment opportunity here even a 1.50 + line! Arizona has won all 5 meetings in this series this season and get the nod again.

NY METS are 1-12  against the money line after a 5 game span where the bullpen ERA was 2.00 or better this season and are 1-12  against the money line as a home underdog of +100 or higher this season.

ARIZONA is 32-18   against the money line vs. an NL team with a team batting average of .250 or worse this season. GODLEY team when he starts  is 21-12   against the money line vs. teams whose hitters strike out 7 or more times/game .NY METS are 10-34  against the money line when playing against a team with a winning record this season and 3-14 L/17 in the second half of the season.are 8-31  against the money line vs. teams outscoring opp by 0.5 or more runs/game on the season this season and are 0-11 against the money line vs. teams outscoring opp by 0.5 or more runs/game in the second half of the season this season.

Play Type: Premium

Blue Jays RH Marcus Stroman (11-6, 2.99 ERA) vs. Rays RH Austin Pruitt (6-4, 5.37)

Stroman the Blue Jays starter today enters this tilt against the Rays in top form as is evident by  having limited opposition batters to three earned runs or fewer in 20 of 25 starts this season. He has allowed just one homer over his last 10 starts and has recorded  a stingy 2.02 ERA over that time.Among starters with at least 100 batted balls allowed since the All-Star break, Stroman has the lowest average launch angle (-0.8 degrees), according to MLBs Statcast. He also has the second-lowest rate of barreled balls allowed (1.4 percent), surrendering only two total during that time. This will be Stroman's second straight start vs the Rays, as he faced them last Wednesday. On average, Stroman has performed better in the second game of those back-to-back starts. He recorded a 3.48 ERA over 20 2/3 innings in the second starts, and a 5.06 ERA over 16 innings the first time he faced the opponent. Today I'm betting we see the Jays young hurler at his best. Note: Stroman owns a  2.25 ERA over three starts against Tampa Bay. He's struck out 22 Rays over 20 innings this season. Meanwhile, Austin Pruitt (6-4, 5.37 a rookie  and will make his first start against the Blue Jays, though he's seen them three times coming out of the bullpen. He gave up 11 hits AND 6 RUNS  in 7 innings last time out, and according to my own cross reference batter vs pitcher power rankings matches up poorly vs the Jays sometimes explosive offense. Overall, the Rays have lost four of Pruitt’s L/5 starts and the losses in his last three outings have all been at home, and I'm betting things don't get better in this spot as the Jays bounce back from yesterdays 6-5 loss.

Blue Jays are 4-1 in Stromans last 5 starts vs. American League East.Blue Jays are 8-2 in Stromans last 10 starts on astroturf.Rays are 5-11 in their last 16 home games vs. a right-handed starter.Blue Jays are 4-1 in Stromans last 5 road starts vs. Rays. Long term team trend: The Blue Jays are  also 19-0 L/19 on the moneyline  as a favorite after a game as a road dog in which their bullpen allowed multiple runs and it is after the All-Star break.

Experience & Awards

I have been wagering professionally on sports and horse racing for 30 years. 

My picks have been documented for 18 years.  I have earned numerous top 10 Basketball and Football finishes.  

My college football picks have profited in 16 of my last 17 seasons. In 2011 I went 68% for the year.

I was the 2009 NFL Handicapper of the Year in 2009  in a prestigous event.  I won the Ultimate Football NFL Championship in 2006.  In 2014 I overcame a slow start to finish 59-32 65%!  

I have been an NBA World Champion with 7 winning seasons the last 8 years.  

I also continue to beat the College Hoops book makers with a high volume attack on a yearly basis. 

Handicapping Approach

I have a firm belief in my systems.  There is not a sport I feel I can not beat.  

My handicapping can be best referred to as the 'The Smart Money Approach". I leave no stone unturned.  I have a large database of information and statistics.  I also take into consideration injuries, current and historical trends, and form.  I also factor in the weather, surface conditions, and line movement.

Sports Betting Is An Investment

Many gamblers offer causal explanations for long runs of good and bad performance.  The same is true of financial analysts.  The records of bettors and investors show the same variable successes and failures. 

Both investment opportunities show significant variables and both can give the investor an advantage.  You need to do the proper research to consider all the facts. If you do so a long term profit is more than attainable.

I think sports betting is even better than the stock market.  The investor/bettor has much more control over his funds. You can take a short break, and almost always know your bankroll has not been untouched.

In the markets you are leaving your 401K and other mutual investments in the hands of a volatile marketplace. Plus, you are being torched for huge handling fees by brokers on individual investments. These fees would make sports book managers drool.

I am not saying it is easy making a living from sports betting. But, the small percent who do consistently beat the books have a much better rate of return than that of any market investor!

This is the outlook I have on every wager I place in the sports wagering markets. I take my portfolio very seriously!

Money Management

To be a successful and profitable sports bettor you must always have a long term goal. Set that standard before you begin.  You need to set aside a fairly substantial bankroll.

If you want to be conservative you would wager no more than 1-2% of your bankroll per game.  No more than 3% on the best bets.

This might seem a little on the low side.  But, this is a long and turbulent battle with the books.  You will be happy that you practiced good money management and frugality.

Here are some additional guidelines I recommend.

1. Shop for your best possible lines (rogue lines) from the most reputable sources.

2. Stay disciplined and do not stray from recommended bankroll allocation on individual wagers. Chasing your wagers never a good idea.

3. Always keep in mind that your bankroll is your life line.  It must be treated the same way you would treat finances allocated for any business venture.

4. Buy off the hook on key numbers.

5. Understanding the importance and the art of middling.

6. Keep a record of all your wagers and results and use them as part of over all statistical data base.

These are some important factors that will help you in your quest for long term profits.

I leave you with a thought from the late great Jimmy the Greek. The house does not beat the player, it just gives him the opportunity to beat himself.

*Almost all selections have the same allocated bankroll %(which equals 1 betting unit). Strong selections will see our single game wagers doubled.  These plays are rated as GENERALS CLUB selections.
