The Dream according to my power rankings are one of the most under rated teams in the WNBA, and according to numbers we have value on the this home dog line.This is Washington's first game in Atlanta since winning Game 5 of the WNBA semifinals 86-81 last September.

ATLANTA is 12-4 ATS  versus good teams - outscoring their opponents by 3+ points/game over the last 2 seasons.

Tigers vs Indians
OVER 9 -112 Won
Play Type: Premium

These teams took part in a low scoring 2-0 affair yesterday, but Im betting on a much higher scoring game here this afternoon with Plesac and Norris on the hill for the Tribe and Tigers respectively. Both of these hurlers according to my pitcher vs batting order power rankings does not matchup well , which Im betting results in a higher scoring affair.

Over is 8-2 in Norris' last 10 starts following a Quality Start in his last appearance.Over is 3-1-2 in Tigers last 6 games vs. a starter with a WHIP less than 1.15.Over is 3-1-1 in Tigers last 5 road games.Over is 6-2-1 in Tigers last 9 road games vs. a right-handed starter.

Reds vs Brewers
UNDER 8½ -103 Lost
Play Type: Free

Brewers fireballer Brandon Woodruff ....(8-2, 4.02 ERA, 102 SO) had a streak  of nine straight wins when Woodruff starts ended Tuesday at San Diego when he allowed four runs in six innings. He had live stuff in that game, however, hitting a 100 mph zone and keeping the Padres hitless until the fourth inning. The Reds batters Im betting will have their hands full again in this spot. Meanwhile,Anthony DeSclafani...(4-3, 4.22 ERA, 68 SO) last faced the Brewers during his first start of the season on April 2 at GABP. He gave up one earned and three hits over five innings with three walks and eight strikeouts and is a viable hurler here that should also control and limit the Brewers offensive production. 

 CINCINNATI is 31-11 UNDER vs. good fielding teams - averaging 0.6 or less errors/game this season with a combined average of 7.5 rpg scored. CINCINNATI is 10-2 UNDER on the road when the total is 8.5 to 10 this season with a combined average of 6.6 rpg scored. CINCINNATI is 15-3 UNDER  in June games this season with an average of 7.4 rpg scored. MILWAUKEE is 11-2 UNDER after 2 or more consecutive overs this season with a combined average of 8.1 rpg scored. 

Under is 9-3 in the last 12 meetings.Under is 9-4 in the last 13 meetings in Milwaukee.

MLB Home teams (MILWAUKEE) - good NL offensive team (4.7 or more runs/game) against a team with a good bullpen (ERA 3.75), with a hot starting pitcher- WHIP  1.100 or better over his last 10 games are 38-13 UNDER L/5 seasons for a 75% conversion rate for bettors.

Play Type: Premium

Mike Soroka...RHP.....(8-1, 2.12 ERA, 62 SO)
Soroka th Braves starter may have allowed more than one earned run in both of his last two starts, but he’s only done that a total of three times this season and is a strong All-Star candidate and my choice to back here this afternoon vs the Washington Nationals. Braves are 10-0 in Sorokas last 10 starts vs. a team with a losing record and are 6-0 in Sorokas last 6 starts vs. National League East and are 5-0 in his last 5 starts with 5 days of rest.

Meanwhile, the The Nationals starter today Voth is up from Triple-A Fresno to make his 2019 major-league season debut, where he went 3-5 with a 4.40 ERA with 68 strikeouts in 61 1/3 innings in 12 starts. Im betting he will have has hands full here vs the Braves batting order and is fade material. 

ATLANTA is 27-19 against the money line as a road underdog of +100 to +150 over the last 2 seasons.

Astros RH Justin Verlander (9-3, 2.59 ERA) vs. Yankees LH J.A. Happ (7-3, 4.59)

Verlander the Astros starter is a stopper and  is 4-0 with a 1.25 ERA in his last six starts against New York. Im betting on him putting the current Astros losing streak to and end here today in NY. 

Astros are 21-5 in Verlanders last 26 road starts.Astros are 8-1 in Verlanders last 9 road starts vs. a team with a winning record.

HOUSTON is 34-11 against the money line in road games against left-handed starters over the last 2 seasons ( Happ the Yanks starter is a southpaw)

MLB Road teams when the money line is +125 to -125 (HOUSTON) - with a starting pitcher whose WHIP is 1.300 or better on the season-AL, with a hot starting pitcher- WHIP  0.800 or less over his last 3 starts are 65-34 L/5 seasons for a 66% conversion rate for bettors.

Mets vs Phillies
OVER 9½ -131
Play Type: Premium

Matz struggled against the Braves in his last outing, allowing five or more runs for the third time this season. He failed to reach the sixth inning for the first time in his last six outings and my projections today suggest the the Phillies will score 6+ runs which makes this total vulnerable based on the Phillies output alone. Matz is 1-3 with a 5.02 ERA in seven starts against the Phillies. Meanwhile, Eflin the Phillies starter is 2-4 with a 5.40 ERA in eight career starts against the Mets, and I look for the Mets to enough damage to help us breach this number to the upside . 

Mets are 10-2-1 OVER L/13. 

Over is 4-1 in Phillies last 5 home games vs. a left-handed starter.

Over is 4-0-1 in Mets last 5 road games vs. a right-handed starter.Over is 6-0-2 in Mets last 8 games following a loss.Over is 3-0-1 in Mets last 4 games vs. a right-handed starter.Over is 5-1 in Mets last 6 vs. National League East.Over is 5-1-2 in Mets last 8 after allowing 5 runs or more in their previous game.Over is 9-3-1 in Mets last 13 overall.Over is 9-3-1 in Mets last 13 road games vs. a team with a winning record.Over is 6-2-1 in Mets last 9 road games.Over is 9-3-1 in Mets last 13 on grass.Over is 9-3-1 in Mets last 13 road games vs. a team with a winning home record.Over is 8-3-1 in Mets last 12 vs. a team with a winning record.Over is 18-7-4 in Mets last 29 during game 1 of a series.

Dodgers vs Diamondbacks
+131 at pinnacle
Play Type: Premium

Dodgers LH Clayton Kershaw (7-1, 2.85 ERA) vs. Diamondbacks RH Zack Greinke (8-3, 2.91)

 Greinke the DBacks starter has revenge on board for being smacked around for seven runs - four homers - over 3 2/3 innings versus the Dodgers in his season debut and now today here in the rematch we see him at his best. Meanwhile, Kershaw the Dodgers ace remains in good form, but has had some difficulties as a visitor here , as is evident by garnering a sub par  6-8 record along with a 3.70 ERA in 15 starts at Chase Field.

There is substantial value here with the home underdog in a game that is closer to a coin flip than the moneyline might suggest.

Diamondbacks are 6-1 in Greinkes last 7 starts vs. a team with a winning record.

MLB Home teams (ARIZONA) - very good offensive team (5.0 or more runs/game) against a very good starting pitcher (ERA 3.00 or better ) (NL), with a hot starting pitcher- ERA less than 3.00 over his last 10 games are 35-10 L/22 seasons for a 78% conversion rate for bettors.

Experience & Awards

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

My picks have been documented for 20 years.  I have earned numerous top 10 Basketball and Football finishes.  

My college football picks have profited in 16 of my last 18 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.
