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 averaging 57.5 percent while hitting better than 67 percent in the bowls by combining many handicapping factors such as matchup analysis, statistics, history, weather and situational elements. Information is the key because there are just so many teams and conferences on the betting board now. I don't rule out any game or conference. It's a task to find the time to adequately handicap each game. So 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.

YESTERDAY'S PLAYS

MLB  |  Jul 20, 2018
Twins vs Royals
UNDER 9 -110 Lost
$110.0
Play Type: Premium
A pitching matchup of Kyle Gibson versus Danny Duffy may induce yawns. But it could lead to a sneaky Under play espcially in the first game back for the Twins and Royals following the four-day All-Star break.  Gibson doesn't get much respect, but he's been very good on the road with a 2.84 away ERA. Opposing batters are hitting only .197 against him on the road. The Under is 13-4-1 in Gibson's past 18 away starts. Gibson has a 3.22 career ERA versus the Royals in 16 starts.  Gibson won't face an easier offense as the Royals are last in the league in runs and homers.  Duffy has been terrible for much of the year - until recently. He has surrendered only one earned run in four of his last five starts. Duffy has a strong history, too, against the Twins with a 5-1 record and 2.27 ERA in 19 appearances, including 15 starts. Duffy has a 0.75 ERA in two starts against Minnesota this season.  The Twins have a below average offense ranking 22nd in homers and 18th in batting average.  The weather conditions are calling for 7-to-9 mph winds blowing in.

Astros vs Angels
Astros

$100
Play Type: Top Premium
The American League is governed by super powers these days. The defending world champion Astros certainly are one of those super powers. They lead the majors with a plus 188 run differential.  So anytime I can get a low enough price on the Astros, I'm interested. That's the case here.  Southpaw Tyler Skaggs is having an excellent season for the Angels. This is far more of a play on the Astros than a fade on Skaggs. However, Skaggs is trumped by lefty Dallas Keuchel. Not only is Keuchel in excellent form with a 1.35 ERA in three July starts, but the Angels are 9-18 versus lefty starters this season, including losing 16 of their last 21 to them.  Keuchel is 10-2 lifetime versus the Angels. The Astros have won in each of Keuchel's last seven overall starts. Houston is proven on the road, too, winning 28 of its last 38 away games. 
Matchup Selection W/L

Mets vs Yankees
UNDER 8½ -115 Lost
$115.0
Play Type: Free
Under the total is a good way to look in the first game back for teams following All-Star break. Not only have most of the hitters been out of action for four straight days, but bullpens are rested.  I don't see the Mets and Yankees combining for more than eight runs here in a pitching matchup of Noah Syndergaard versus Domingo German.  Syndergaard is an elite pitcher when healthy, which he is now. He has given up three runs or fewer in 11 consecutive starts. This will be his secong start since returning from a finger injury that sidelined him for more than a month. So he should be able to go deep into the game.  German has been up-and-down. He certainly won't lack motivation, though, as he's battling to keep his spot in the Yankees' starting rotation. One of German's better performances came against the Mets on June 9. He gave up three runs in six innings with nine strikeouts and no walks.  German can go all out knowing the Yankees' deep bullpen can take over after five innings if necessary. German is facing a Mets offense that has the second-lowest batting average in the majors and ranks seventh-from-the-bottom in runs. The Mets have scored four runs or less in nine of their last 10 games.  Both teams have a strong recent history of going Under during interleague play. The Under has cashed in eight of the Mets' last 10 interleague games. The Yankees have gone Under in 12 of their past 13 interleague games. 
Matchup Selection W/L
CFL  |  Jul 20, 2018
BC vs Ottawa
Ottawa

Lost
$103.0
Play Type: Premium

Take away Calgary and Ottawa would be unbeaten this season. The Redblacks' only defeats have come to the unbeaten Stampeders, who are far-and-away the best team in the CFL this season. 

 Ottawa should be fully focused for this home matchup. The Redblacks' next two games are on the road. Ottawa catches BC in a letdown spot. Ottawa is 5-0 ATS off a loss.  The Lions could still be celebrating their improbable 20-17 home victory against Winnipeg this past Saturday. BC trailed 17-0 in the second half, but pulled the game out. Winnipeg committed five turnovers in the game. BC quarterback Travis Lulay made his first start since undergoing ACL surgery last September. Lulay was gallant in the victory, but he still might not be 100 percent healthy and he is past his prime.  BC has failed to cover in seven of its past eight road games. They are 0-2 in away matchups this season giving up 41 points to Edmonton in a 19-point loss and 41 points to Winnipeg in a 22-point loss.  The Lions also will be without all-star linebacker Solomon Elimimian, who is out with a hand/wrist injury.
