Celtics vs Cavs
UNDER 202½ -105 Lost
Play Type: Premium

Eastern Conference - Finals - Best of 7 - Game 6 - BOS Leads 3-

This is a big game, and neither of these teams want to make mistakes here. With that said, I'm betting on a methodical and  very physical game especially from the Celtics as they look to slow down the Cavaliers sometimes explosive offensive attack via newly implemented bigger lineup. But don't underestimate the Cavs ability to push back and push back hard as is evident by the following trends.Cleveland have gone under 16 straight times  with less than two days rest after a game as a road dog in which their opponent shot under 40% from the field. In their last eight tilts  under those perimeters the Cavaliers have  allowed an average of just  90.9 ppg. 

BOSTON is 16-4 UNDER  in the 6th game of a playoff series since 1996 with the average combined score clicking in at 182.4 ppg. Boston has gone UNDER 10 straight times by an average of more 12 ppg  as a dog with rest after a game as a home favorite in which they scored a least 18 fast break points .

Under is 5-1 in Cavaliers last 6 games following a straight up loss. Under is 11-4 in Cavaliers last 15 home games vs. a team with a winning road record.Under is 5-0 in Celtics last 5 games following a straight up win.Under is 4-1 in the last 5 meetings.

NBA Home teams where the total is 200 to 209.5 (CLEVELAND) - explosive offensive team - scoring 103+ points/game on the season, after scoring 90 points or less are 87-48 UNDER L/21 seasons for 65% conversion rate for bettors on the blind.

Giants vs Cubs
-1½ -125 at pinnacle
Play Type: Free


SF is struggling to score runs on the road, averaging just 3.2 rpg. Their least closet thing to a clutch offense in the NL. Meanwhile, the Cubs have done their best work at southpaw starters like Holland this season, scoring an average of 6.6 rpg. SF also owns  a struggling bullpen that has garnered a ugly 5.56 road ERA making them fade material this afternoon on this beatable runline number.

Below I have listed some moneyline trends that equate to runline viability .

SAN FRANCISCO is 5-22   against the money line in road games vs. a team with a very good bullpen whose WHIP is 1.250 or better over the last 2 seasons with the average margin of defeat coming by 3 rpg.

SAN FRANCISCO is 9-37   against the money line as a road underdog of +150 or more over the last few seasons with the average loss coming by more than 2.1 rpg.

The Chicago Cubs are 23-0 SU as a 140+ home favorite vs a lefty after facing three straight righties and it is not the second game of a double-header with the average margin of victory beating the 1.5 runline outlay.

Play on the Chicago Cubs -1.5 runline

Eastern Conference - Finals - Best of 7 - Game 6 - BOS Leads 3-2

The young legs of the Boston Celtics and the top tier coaching of Brad Stevens, is having a huge impact on the Cleveland Cavaliers, who for the most part are the superior team on paper, but the least consistent, and tired looking of the two teams at the moment. The Celtics are just wearing the Cavaliers down, now with a bigger lineup, and even though I expect LeBron to come out and once again put on a show I'm betting it won't be enough to the Cavs a cover tonight. At the outset of this series, I thought the Cavaliers just had to much talent, for the young Celtics , but Stevens has assembled a special hardworking team, and their capable of an outright upset vs a Cavaliers side that is showing its age, and mental wear an tear of recent play off failures . I'm also remembering the game 7 tilt where they barely got by the Pacers and are lucky to be here. With that said, lets take the points with the Celtics .

CLEVELAND is 2-13 ATS after scoring 85 points or less over the last 3 seasons. CLEVELAND is 6-20 ATS after scoring 90 points or less over the last 3 seasons. CLEVELAND is 8-24 ATS when playing 6 or less games in 14 days this season. BOSTON is 11-3 ATS vs. teams who are called for 2+ less fouls/game than their opponents this season.BOSTON is 31-18 ATS versus poor defensive teams - shooting pct defense of 46% or worse this season and v is 38-17 ATS versus good shooting teams - making 46% or more of their shots this season.BOSTON is 23-10 ATS as an underdog this season.

The Cleveland Cavaliers are 0-20 ATS failing to cover by just under 9 ppg with rest off a 10+ loss as a dog when they are facing a team that is drawing an average of less than 20.25 fouls per game.Cleveland is 0-17 ATS failing to cover by an average of 10.5 ppg at home off a road game in which Lebron scored at least 14 points fewer than he did in their previous game.

Braves vs Red Sox
OVER 10 -110 Lost
Play Type: Premium


After a pair of scoreless outings to start May, Teheran has given up 10 runs in his last two starts (11 innings), and his ERA jumped, from 3.14 to 4.17. He allowed a season-worst six runs in five innings against the Marlins during his previous start.He has not been great in two career outings against the Red Sox, one of them at Fenway, going 0-2 with a 4.73 ERA and yielding 19 hits in 13 1/3 innings. His ERA at Fenway is 8.53.The current Red Sox are a collective 14-for-40 (.350) with two homers against Teheran. Mookie Betts is 4-for-8 (.500), Brock Holt 3-for-6 (.500) with a homer and Xander Bogaerts 3-for-7 (.429).  look for the BoSox do some damage here in this spot and come close by themselves to eclipsing this Total. 

TEHERAN  in 6 games with  when the total is 8.5 to 10 this season has seen a combined average of 13.4 rpg scored.

Rodriguez  I believe is very over rated as was evident  last time out, giving up nine hits but no runs over 5 2/3 innings while throwing 110 pitches. He's not efficient, and teams like Atlanta I'm betting can take advantage of him. The lefty walked none and struck out  just seven. In 37 career starts at Fenway, Rodriguez is 10-9 with a 4.64 ERA. Atlanta has done their best offensive work vs LH starters this season averaging 6.3 rpg on a strong .288 team BA which includes 19 HRs and overall vs all pitching 37 HRS on the road so far this season. I'm betting The fans standing on the  Green Monster will get a workout here tonight.

Over is 4-0 in Braves last 4 games vs. a left-handed starter.Over is 5-1-1 in Braves last 7 interleague games vs. a team with a winning record.Over is 4-0 in Teherans last 4 starts on grass

Over is 4-0 in Rodriguezs last 4 starts during game 1 of a series.Over is 5-2 in Rodriguezs last 7 home starts.Over is 7-3 in Red Sox last 10 interleague games vs. a team with a winning record.
SNITKER is 42-18 OVER  vs. teams outscoring opp by 1 or more runs/game on the season as the manager of ATLANTA with a combined average of 10.4 rpg scored.

The Red Sox have gone OVER 10 straight imes by an average of 6 rpg as an unrested home favorite in a series opener after a loss as a road favorite in which they never led which happened yesterday .

Blue Jays vs Phillies
OVER 9 -120 Won
Play Type: Premium


Eflin  since being placed in the Phillies rotation has done well , but he showed some chinks in armour last time out as he struggled  vs the Cardinals. The Blue Jays have been inconsistent offensively , but according to my power rankings matchup well vs Eflin . Note: The Jays have averaged 5 rpg vs RHP like Eflin this season. It must also be noted that Eflin gave up eight earned runs, nine hits (three homers) and three walks against the Blue Jays on June 14, 2016 in MLB debut. Some of the effects of the PTSD he suffered after that set back might come into his head here this evening. Meanwhile, Gaviglio the Jays pitcher, has to small a sample size to really get a grasp of his overall form, but from scouting reports he is average at best and susceptible to being lit up by a Phillies offense that has scored an average of 5.1 rpg at home this season.

Over is 4-0 in Blue Jays last 4 interleague games vs. a right-handed starter.Over is 14-2 in Blue Jays last 16 interleague road games vs. a right-handed starter.Over is 13-3 in Blue Jays last 16 vs. National League East.Over is 16-5 in Blue Jays last 21 interleague road games.

Over is 6-0 in Eflins last 6 starts with 5 days of rest.Over is 5-0 in the last 5 meetings in Philadelphia.

The Phillies have gone over 14 straight times in the first game of a series with rest off a game as a favorite in which they had a higher team-left-on-base than their opponent.The Blue Jays have gone OVER 12 straight times  as a dog with no rest in a series opener when they are off a game as a dog and facing a team with a better record. Both trends went over by just under 5rpg.

TORONTO is 8-0 OVER L/8  in road games vs. an NL team with a team batting average of .250 or worse over the last 3 seasons with a combined average of 11.9 rpg scored.TORONTO is 9-1 OVER  against NL East opponents over the last 3 seasons with a combined average of 12.3 rpg scored.TORONTO is 10-1 OVER   in road games after 5 or more consecutive home games over the last 2 seasons with a combined average of 11.9 rpg scored.

Diamondbacks vs A's
-150 at GTBets
Play Type: Premium


Losers of seven straight and 13 of 14 before making the trip to Oakland, Arizona was in a full nose dive  entering play here in Oakland yesterday, until a miraculous complete team effort buoyed them to a win yesterday in the the opening game in this series. However, their inconsistency remains an issue, and I'm doubting they have suddenly found their way out of this slump just yet and I'm betting against them here in this spot.

The DBacks will send former Boston Red Sox starter  out for his  10th career start against the A's. He has a winning record ( 4-2 ) vs the As but has a troubling  6.85 ERA in the first nine.He has not enjoyed pitching at the Coliseum in Oakland, going 1-2 with a 9.58 ERA in three starts. Meanwhile, As starter Mengden (4-4, 3.30) has never faced the Diamondbacks, but h has gone 3-3 with a 3.74 ERA in seven interleague starts. The righty hurler has looked to be in top form in May, allowing just four earned runs in 24 2/3 innings over four starts and get the nod again here.

Diamondbacks are 1-10 in their last 11 games vs. a right-handed starter. Diamondbacks are 0-5 in their last 5 interleague road games vs. a right-handed starter.Athletics are 5-1 in Mengdens last 6 starts after allowing 5 runs or more in their previous game.

OAKLAND is 21-10   against the money line after a 3 game span where the bullpen threw 13 total innings or more over the last couple of seasons.

MLB All favorites with a money line of -150 or more (OAKLAND) - starting a pitcher who gave up 1 or less earned runs in his last 2 outings, cold hitting team - batting .190 or worse over their last 3 games are 45-7 L/5 seasons for a 86% conversion rate for bettors on the blind.

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.
