My 10* AL Game of the Month is on the Hou Astros at 2:05 ET.

The New York Yankees have homered in 25 straight contests, tying the franchise record set in 1941 and moving within two games of matching the major-league record set by Texas in 2002, after hitting two HRs in Saturday's 7-5 victory. The win was New York's EIGHTH in a row (that's a season-high), moving the Yankees 5 1/2 games ahead of the Tampa Bay Rays in the AL East (defending champion Red Sox are eight games back). Houston has now lost a season-high SEVEN in a row but at 48-30, still owns a 6 1/2 game lead in the AL West. The Yanks look to complete a four-game sweep Sunday afternoon in the Bronx.

Justin Verlander (9-3, 2.59 ERA) will take the mound for Houston and J.A. Happ (7-3, 4.59 ERA) for New York. Verlander was 9-2 with a 2.16 ERA over his first 13 starts of the season (teams was 10-3) but he is 0-1 with a 4.43 ERA in his last three (Astros are 1-2). Verlander is 7-7 with a 3.54 ERA in 21 regular-season starts against the Yankees but Including two wins over the Yankees in the 2017 ALCS, is 4-0 with a 1.25 ERA in his last six starts against New York. Happ pitched into the sixth inning just once in his first four starts of 2019 (posting a 7.23 ERA) but he's allowed three ERs or less in EIGHT of his last 11 starts (Yanks are 9-2). In fact, Happ is 6-0 with a 4.29 ERA in his last eight starts (Yanks are 7-1) and today marks his 300th career start.

The Yankees are outscoring opponents 60-23 while batting .289 with 17 HRs in their eight-game winning streak, while the Astros are on their longest skid since also dropping seven straight from June 4-10, 2015. Houston has scored 12 runs and produced 30 hits in the first three games of this series but have negated those totals by going 4-for-30 with RISP. Houston is 16-6 vs lefties on the season and while the Yanks have won SEVEN of Happ's last eight starts, he does own a not-so-impressive 4.29 ERA in that stretch. Verlander has not been sharp in his last two outings but prior to that, he had given up five hits or less in 11 straight starts. Verlander is the very definition of a "stopper" and that's exactly what I expect him to do right here.

Good luck...Larry

My 9* Oddsmaker's Error is on the Chi Cubs at 2:20 ET.

Pete Alonso hit his 26th HR in New York's 10-2 Saturday victory over the Cubs. The Mets have homered in 18 of 20 outings this month (team is just 9-11, though) and look to take THREE of four from the Cubs in the series finale today at Wrigley. The Cubs have now dropped EIGHT of their last 12 games but still own a half-game lead over the Brewers in the NL Central (St Louis is now just one back of Chicago).

Sunday's finale features Jacob deGrom (4-6, 3.26 ERA) taking on Cole Hamels (6-2, 2.85 ERA). The reigning NL Cy Young Award winner will try to win back-to-back starts for the first time since opening the season 2-0 while pitching 13 scoreless innings with a 24-2 KW ratio. DeGrom ended a six-game winless streak Tuesday by holding Atlanta to two runs on five hits over a season-high 8.1 innings,. He's now recorded four straight quality starts (EIGHT in his last 10). That's some solid pitching but Cole Hamels owns a 0.31 ERA over four June starts. He's allowed just one ER over 29 innings (17 hits allowed), with a KW ratio of 31-6. The Cubs are 10-5 in Hamels' starts in 2019 (5-2 at home), as he's posted 2.85 ERA and .226 BAA on the season.

DeGrom has typically suffered from a lack of run support and that has been no different in 2019. He's allowed two ERs or less in NINE of his last 10 starts, yet the Mets are just 3-7 in that 10-start stretch. He is 2-2 with a 3.05 ERA in seven career starts against the Cubs but at Wrigley Field he is 0-1 with a 4.50 ERA in three outings. The Cubs lost yesterday but are 26-14 at home on the season (outscoring opponents 4.78-to-3.70 RPG), including going 22-12 against right-handed starters. Meanwhile, the Mets are a poor road team (17-26) and an even a closer look reveals that after a 7-1 start away from Citi Field, they are 10-25 since. Cubs win! Cubs win!

Good luck...Larry

My 10* Situational Stunner is on the Chi Cubs at 8:05 ET.

The Atlanta bullpen is 9-1 with a 2.31 ERA in June (seven saves), helping Atlanta improve to 16-5 this month and move to 46-32 on the season. Atlanta has extended its NL East lead to 6 1/2 games over the 2nd-place Phillies. The Cubs rallied for a 5-3 victory on Sunday, giving them a split of the four-game weekend series at home. The Cubs are just 5-8 over their last 13 games but still own a half-game lead over the Brewers in the NL Central (Cards lurk two games back). The Braves have reached double-digit runs six times in June, including five games in which they scored at least 12 runs. Atlanta opens a four-game series at Wrigley tonight against a Chicago team which is 27-14 at home, while outscoring the opposition 4.78-to-3.68 RPG.

Julio Teheran (5-5, 3.40 ERA) will get the ball for Atlanta on Monday, opposed by Chicago's Jon Lester (6-5, 4.13 ERA). Teheran took the mound last Tuesday at home vs the Mets off an eight-start stretch in which he allowed just four ERs across 44.2 innings to post an 0.81 ERA (team was 7-1). However, Teheran suffered his worst start of the season, allowing six runs on eight hits with three walks over four innings of a 10-2 loss. Will Teheran bounce back? A good omen is that he is 3-1 in nine lifetime starts against the Cubs with a 3.29 ERA with the Braves going 8-1!

The veteran Lester beat the White Sox 7-3 on Wednesday, striking out six while allowing three runs on seven hits with one walk over 5.2 innings. However, after opening the 2019 season with a 1.16 ERA through his first seven starts (team went 5-2), he has surrendered 11 HRs while posting a 7.17 ERA and an opponents batting average of .325 in his last seven outings (Cubs are 3-4). Some good news for Chicago fans is that Lester is 6-2 with a 2.52 ERA in 10 career starts against the Braves (teams are 8-2).

The Braves are 'rolling' and except for his last start, Teheran has been nearly unhittable since the beginning of May. As for Lester's recent troubles, take a closer look. He's struggled on the road all season (5.82 ERA in six starts / team is 2-4) but here at Wrigley he's got a 2.32 ERA in eight starts (Cubs are 6-2). I noted above Chicago's 27-14 record at home (second-best home mark in the NL) and an 80% winning situation!) Cubs win! Cubs win!

Good luck...Larry

SERVICE BIO

Age: 63 (turns 64 in November).

Years in handicapping: Larry entered his 34th year in the industry in August of 2017.

Achievements in handicapping: 1985 Castaway’s Pro Football Challenge Champion, then the most prestigious handicapping contest in Las Vegas; 1999 Stardust Invitational semi-finalist.

A member of the original cast of Proline, the nation’s longest running pre-game handicapping show on the USA-TV network (also hosted Sports Desk on the same network). Although well-known on TV for his expert game analysis and no-nonsense handicapping style, Larry may be best known for his radio work. He hosted his own syndicated call-in radio show, Sports Central. It aired live from Bally's Casino in Las Vegas in the early to mid-90s and at one time was heard in more than 100 markets.

Systems used for handicapping a game: Fundamental and statistical analysis. "I'm not typically a trend and system kind of guy," Ness says. "I look at team strengths and weaknesses and compare them. It’s an all-encompassing thing and over 30-plus years, you get good at it."

34-Club Play: It represents Larry's 34 years in the business and gets his highest star rating (10*s). Expect no more than one of these plays per month, per sport during the regular season.

LEGEND Play: Larry's often been referred to as a Las Vegas legend and he's 'borrowed' the title for his other "signature play.". Larry's LEGEND Plays were previously available to only a select group of private clients but they are now available to all, through the internet. Like his 34-Club plays, expect no more than one play per month, per sport (rated 10*s).

PERFECT STORM: Larry just added these plays the last few years and his accompanying expert analysis makes these popular plays self-explanatory (rated 9 or 10*s).

Situational Stunners: Larry's a fundamental handicapper at heart but he does pay attention to team and situational trends (especially in MLB). When his fundamental handicapping and a strong trend or situation match up, he releases a Situational Stunner. He just started releasing these plays in MLB '09 and he's expanded them since, to all sports (rated 8, 9 or 10*s).

Las Vegas Insider: Throughout his 34 years, Larry has become known as "the ultimate Las Vegas insider." The contacts he's developed over more than two decades (on both sides of the 'counter'), are arguably "unmatched!" He confers daily with 'his friends' and when "all the stars align on the same game," Larry releases an exclusive Las Vegas Insider (rated between 8 and 10*s).

Oddsmaker's Error Plays: Larry uses this term with "great respect" (and not very often), as he counts among his very closest friends many of Las Vegas' most famous and respected Sport Book directors (past and present). However, when Larry feels "the line is significantly off," he'll release one of these "not to be missed" plays (rated between 8 and 10*s).

Weekly and Weekend Wipeout Winners: Larry added this self-explanatory moniker just a few years ago. They've become immensely popular and why not? Who wouldn't want a game that has "blowout written all over it," supported by Larry's expert analysis (rated between 8 and 10*s).

Late-Breaking Plays: Larry will always go back and take a "second look" at each day's card, after posting all his games. When he finds something he missed the first time around, he'll release a Late-Breaking Play. These plays are more prevalent in sports like baseball and basketball than football (typically rated at 8 or 9*s).

Superstar Triple Play: Over the years, many of Larry's regular clients have clamored for more three-game reports. You asked for it and Larry's responded. Back in the late 1980s and into the mid 1990s, 900-numbers became "the rage." While a panel member of Proline (see above), Larry created the Superstar Triple Play. One call got you three Superstar Triple Plays (in a particular sport). For almost a decade, anywhere from 1,500 to 3,500 callers responded each weekend, when Larry offered his famous "Superstar Triple Play" pitch on Proline. Starting in 2009, Larry began going "Back to the Future!" Almost every Saturday (college) and Sunday (NFL) this football season, get three plays on a single report from Larry (many will be TV games), the originator of the "Superstar Triple Play!"

Release Times: Larry likes to release his picks early so that clients have as much time as possible to shop around. NFL and College Football plays are posted very early in the week (sometimes almost up to a week in advance.) NBA, College hoops and NHL are all posted the day before the game goes off. And the same goes for MLB, with selections posted the night before the game. Sometimes life gets in the way and Ness won't release until the morning of the game, but for the majority of the year Larry likes to say: "The earlier the better!" 

Sports and conferences he excels at handicapping: MLB is Larry's favorite sports to handicap, saying the money is in the statistics. He 'loves' the daily action and the long season. "If I had to pick one sport, I would chose baseball because you’re playing pitchers, streaks, teams that are hot and cold," Ness says. "I also love the NBA and NFL playoffs, the college bowl games plus the college basketball tourneys, which are seasons unto themselves."

Quote: "No one works any harder and my work-product speaks for itself," Ness says. "I have a no-nonsense style and my logic is easy to follow. Anyone buying my plays will know exactly what I was thinking when I made the selection. After 34 years, the Larry Ness brand is instantly recognizable and my analysis ranks with the best in the industry."
