Dodgers vs Brewers
+103 at YouWager
Play Type: Top Premium

My 10* NLCS Game 7 Decider is on the Mil Brewers at 8:05 ET.

The Milwaukee Brewers came home from LA down 3-2 in the NLCS, after scoring just three runs in losing Games 4 and 5. The Brewers had managed only 16 runs (3.20 per) while batting .219 with a .653 OPS in the first five games of the series but 'exploded' for four-run first in Game 6, on their way to a series-tying 7-2 win. Milwaukee had 11 hits plus received six walks from LA pitchers. More importantly, Milwaukee finally got some timely hitting, going 5-16 with RISP.  David Freeze led off the game with a HR for LA but the team had just four more hits the rest of the way, scoring just one more run on an RBI double by Freeze. LA bats have been very quiet this series, as the Dodgers have scored a modest 18 runs through six games (3.00 per), while batting .210 with a .585 OPS.

The Game 7 pitching matchup is a 're-hook' from Game 3 of this series, LA's Walker Buehler and Milwaukee's Jhoulys Chacin. Buehler has had a terrific rookie season, making 24 regular season appearances (23 starts), posting a 2.62 ERA, an 0.96 WHIP and a .193 BAA. Buehler posted a 1.58 ERA over his last 11 starts of the regular season but has allowed nine ERs over just 12 innings in two playoff starts (6.75 ERA).  He gave up four runs on six hits and a walk while striking out eight over seven innings to suffer the loss in Game 3 on Monday, opposite Chacin.

Speaking of Jhoulys Chacin, the 10-year vet signed a two-year contract with the Milwaukee Brewers in January, hoping to pitch in the postseason for the first time in his major league career. He has done more than his part to help fulfill that dream with an impressive regular-season in which he went 15-8 with a 3.50 ERA in a major league-best 35 starts. He even held the Cubs to a single run over 5 1/3 innings in the Game 163 tiebreaker that gave Milwaukee the Central Division title and the NL's No. 1 seed.  Chacin has been outstanding in his two postseason starts, allowing six hits and five walks across 10 1/3 scoreless innings, while recording a pair of wins.

Both teams came into Game 6 struggling offensively but it was Milwaukee which broke out of its slump. Why Not? After all, the Brewers finished with an NL-best 51-30 record at home during the regular season and have won four of five at Miller Park in the playoffs. Is Buehler up to the task? He's certainly shown no indication he is in his two postseason starts, so far. Plus, he posted a 3.45 ERA on the road as opposed to a 1.93 mark at home, during the regular season.Chacin has been 'MONEY' for Milwaukee all season, finishing 11th in the moneyline standings with a 23-12 team record in his starts (includes his Game 163 win), earning a profit of $1,079. He comes into this "winner-take-all" game having pitched 10 1/3 scoreless innings this postseason plus Milwaukee left-handed relief ace Josh Hader never entered Game 6's win thanks to a much-needed breakout performance by Milwaukee's offense. Hader's made six appearances during Milwaukee's 2018 playoff run and hasn't allowed a run while striking out 12 over seven innings. That's not reassuring news for the Dodgers, who have managed only four hits while striking out eight times in 18 at-bats over 4 2/3 innings against Hader during the NLCS!

This will be the 10th Game 7 in NLCS history, with the home team winning six of the previous nine matchups. Make that SEVEN of 10, after tonight's game!

Good luck...Larry

Spurs vs Blazers
+4½ -105 at pinnacle
Play Type: Top Premium

This is a 10* PERFECT STORM on the San Antonio Spurs (10:05 EST).

The Blazers come in off an opening night victory over LeBron James and the Lakers and I believe they’ll suffer a predictable letdown here. 

San Antonio will look to take advantage and to build off its opening night win over the Wolves.

DeMar DeRozan had 28 points in his first game for San Antonio, while LaMarcus Aldridge had 21 points and 19 boards. 

The Blazers got 24 points from guard Nick Stauskas off the bench in their win over the Lakers. Portland would go on to earn the victory despite being edged 34-12 in fast break points.

I’ll point out though that San Antonio is 7-3 ATS in its last ten as an underdog, while Portland is just 17-23 ATS in its last 40 after allowing 115 points or more.

This one has the feel of whichever team that has its hands on the ball last is going to be the one to come out on top. Grab the points.

Good luck…Larry

Mississippi State vs LSU
-6 -112 at betonline
Play Type: Free

My free play is on LSU at 7:00 ET.

LSU opened the season ranked No. 25 in the AP's preseason poll but wasted no time making its mark, taking down then-No. 8 Miami 37-17 at Arlington, Tx, as a three-point dog. The Tigers followed two weeks later with a 22-21 win at then-No. 7 Auburn, this time as a 10-point dog. Not to be undone, LSU won 36-16 last Saturday as a seven-point home dog against then-No. 2 Georgia. However, there is 'no rest for the weary' when one plays in the SEC. LSU is back at No. 5 in the latest AP poll but faces yet another ranked team this Saturday, as No. 22 Mississippi State visits Baton Rogue. The Bulldogs began the season ranked 18th and reached No. 14 after a 3-0 start but back-to-back losses to Kentucky and Florida dropped them out of the rankings. However, Miss St is back in, after a 23-9 upset of then-No. 8 Auburn on Oct 6. This rivalry is LSU's longest and Mississippi State's second, behind the Egg Bowl against the University of Mississippi. LSU leads the series 73–35–3, after winning 16 of the last 18 meetings.

The Bulldogs feature one of the best defenses in the country, allowing an FBS-low 12.7 PPG and ranking eighth in total defense at 289.7 YPG. Defensive lineman Montez Sweat leads the nation in sacks per game (1.25) and tops the SEC in total sacks (7.5). QB Nick Fitzgerald accounted for 264 yards of total offense and two TDs, rushing for 195 and two scores against the Tigers. Fitzgerald is the top rushing QB in SEC history and his 513 yards leads a running game that is averaging an SEC-best 240.7 YPG (18th in the nation).

In contrast to Miss St's run-oriented attack, LSU arguably has the most balanced offense in the nation, rushing and passing for the exact same number of yards (1,415) through seven games. The offense is averaging 32.0 PPG, ranking 52nd. The defensive unit is no slouch, ranking 17th in points allowed (16.9 per) on 340.3 YPG (33rd). Linebacker Devin White was named SEC Defensive Player of the Week after recording a season-high 13 tackles and recovering a fumble in the win over Georgia (he ranks third in the SEC with 66 total tackles and 9.4 per game).

Yes, Mississippi State has limited five of its six opponents to 14 points or fewer but LSU is averaging 37.5 PPG at home this season. It's also very likely that LSU remembers last year's meeting against Miss State in which the Bulldogs blasted the Tigers, 37-7, in Starkville, Ms. It was the most lopsided loss for LSU since Ed Orgeron took over as head coach four games into the 2016 season plus more notably, it was Miss St's largest margin of victory in the all-time series, which dates to 1896. MSU is just 3-7 ATS on the SEC road their last 10. Lay the points with LSU.

Good luck...Larry

Ohio State vs Purdue
OVER 66 -115 Won
Play Type: Top Premium

My 10* TOTAL OF THE MONTH is on the over Ohio State/Purdue (7:30 EST).

The second ranked and unbeaten Ohio State Buckeyes have a legitimate Heisman Trophy candidate in QB Dwayne Haskins. 

Ohio State is so far 7-0 overall and 4-0 in the Big Ten, most recently pulling away for a convincing 30-14 win over Minnesota. 

Haskins was 33 of 44 for 412 yards and three TDs. Coach Urban Meyer though thinks his team can play even better:

“I don’t think we played particularly well today. We’ll know more when we get a film grade, and I’ll let you know on Monday how they played,” Meyer said post-game. “We gave up three sacks. We have to keep Dwayne upright. Short yardage is not a strength. Red zone is not a strength, and running the ball is not a strength. That’s something we’ve got to get figured out.”

Purdue is 3-3 overall and 2-1 in the Big Ten, but it comes in on top form, having won three straight. 

Most recently the Boilermakers come in off a 46-7 win over Illinois this past Saturday. QB David Blough was 25 of 36 for 377 yards and three TDs and Purdue would roll up 611 yards of total offense, including 150 rushing yards from DJ Knox.

During the win streak Blough has been unstoppable, going for 1,001 yards and seven major scores. 

I’ll point out that Purdue has seen the total eclipse the posted number in 11 of its last 14 as a home underdog and in six of its last eight after scoring more than 40 points in its previous game, while Ohio State has seen the total go over the number in six of its last eight as a road favorite and in ten of its last 14 games as a favorite of 10.5 points or more.

Two teams firing on all cylinders offensively collide on Saturday night and all signs point to a “shootout.” Play the over.

Good luck…Larry

SMU vs Tulane
-7 -102 at pinnacle
Play Type: Premium

The third pick of my Superstar Triple Play is on Tulane (8*) (3:30 EST)

This is an important game. Houston is going to likely win the conference, but the victor of this contest will be solidly in the second position. 

To say this is a “revenge” game for Tulane though would be a bit of an understatement, as SMU has won six of the last seven in the series.

SMU has had a week of to ponder its 48-20 beatdown at the hands of UFC. Overall the Mustangs are allowing 39.7 PPG.

Last week Tulane fell 37-21 to Cincinnati (who has since cracked the Top 25). Overall the Green Wave are averaging 379 YPG.

I’ll point out though that SMU is just 1-3 ATS in its last four following its bye, while Tulane is 7-2 ATS in its last nine after allowing 36 points or more in its previous contest.

Despite some of the QB issues that Tulane is going through, I think the Green Wave finds a way to get the job done at home in this crucial contest.

Lay the points.

Good luck…Larry

Akron vs Kent State
-4 -108 at pinnacle
Play Type: Premium

The second pick of my Superstar Triple Play is on Akron 8* (3:30 EST).

Akron comes in hungry after dropping its third straight, most recently a 24-6 setback at Buffalo last weekend. A date against hapless Kent State is just what the doctor ordered for the Zips to get back on track though, as the Golden Flashes come in having lost five straight.

And if recent history is any precedence, then Akron has to be liking its chances today as it’s taken three straight in the series, including a 24-14 victory last season.

Akron is averaging 23.2 PPG and it’s conceding only 26.4. QB Kato Nelson struggled in last week’s loss, going just 12 of 29 for 115 yards and an INT. Overall though he has 980 yards passing, seven TDs and six INTs. 

Kent is averaging only 23 PPG and it’s conceding a whopping 36.6. QB Woody Barrett has 1,560 passing yards, to go along with seven TDs and eight INTs. 

Akron has its issues, but this a big opportunity which I believe it will make the most of. I’ll point out as well that Kent State is just 1-5 ATS in its last six after allowing more than 450 total yards in its previous game, while Akron is 6-2 ATS in its last eight following an ATS loss.

For all the reasons listed above, lay the points.

Good luck…Larry

Eastern Michigan vs Ball State
Ball State
+3 -109 at GTBets
Play Type: Premium

The first pick of my Superstar Triple Play is on Ball State 8* (3:00 EST).

Ball State is 3-4 overall and 2-1 in the MAC West. The Cardinals though come in with plenty of momentum as they look to move back to .500, most recently rallying from a 13-point fourth-quarter deficit to knock off CMU last weekend 24-23. 

EMU held on for a 28-26 win last weekend, nearly squandering a 28-3 half-time lead, struggling after QB Mike Glass left with injury.

If Glass can’t play today (and if he does, one has to wonder about his health?!), then Tyler Wiegers would fill in. Last week he was 11 of 15 for 83 yards and he’s been decent with five TDs and just one INT this season.

Ball State still needs three more wins for bowl eligibility, so the home side will clearly have the “foot on the gas” from start to finish here as it looks to take advantage of this EMU team that’s dealing with some pretty major QB issues at the moment. 

Ball State has a solid receiving corps, led by Riley Neal, who has 40 catches for 546 yards. 

The Cardinals are averaging a very respectable 441.4 yards of offense a game, thanks in part to them running nearly 85 play on offense per contest.

I’ll point out as well that Ball State is interestingly 6-1 ATS in its last seven after allowing fewer than 170 passing yards in its previous game, while EMU is a horrible 9-23 ATS in its last 32 following a SU victory.

For all the reason listed above, play on Ball State.

Good luck…Larry

Michigan vs Michigan State

Play Type: Premium

My 9* Rivalry Rout is on Michigan (12:00 EST).

Michigan State traveled to Ann Arbor last year and scored the 14-10 upset victory. Suffice it to say, it’s payback time!

Michigan looks to avenge that setback and it comes into this one on top form, having posted six straight victories after an Opening season loss to Notre Dame. 

Michigan State on the other hand looks poised for a classic “letdown” here in my opinion after a big win over Penn State last weekend.

Last week the Wolverines won 38-13 at home over Wisconsin. QB Shea Patterson had 124 passing yards, along with a season-high 90 yards rushing with a TD. RB Karan Higdon had 100 yards rushing as well. 

The difference maker today for me though is the Wolverines’ defensive unit, which limited Wisconsin QB Alex Hornibrook to 100 passing yards, one TD and two INT’s. Wisconsin came into that game averaging 30.3 points and 447.3 YPG.

MSU QB Brian Lewerke managed a TD pass to Felton Davis with 19 seconds left on the clock to score the 21-17 victory over the Nittany Lions last weekend. But it wasn’t pretty, as Lewerke finished with a 22.8 QB rating and he was sacked three times, while the offensive line would additionally give up seven tackles for a loss. 

I’ll point out as well that Michigan State is just 1-4 ATS in its last five following an ATS victory and only 1-4 ATS in its last five at home, while Michigan is 4-1 ATS in its last against the conference.

For all the reasons listed above, play on Michigan.

Good luck…Larry

Flames vs Rangers
-127 at betonline
Play Type: Top Premium

My 10* GAME OF THE WEEK is on the Calgary Flames (7:05 EST).

Calgary looks to bounce back off a 5-3 home loss to Nashville. The Rangers return home off a 4-3 OT loss in Washington, a game in which it gave up a big lead late.

This is a “double revenge” contests for the Flames, as New York somehow managed to take both meetings last season.

Calgary is fifth in the league in scoring with 3.71 GPG. Mike Smith is 3-3 with a 3.38 GAA on the season.

New York is ranked 25th in scoring with just 2.43 GPG, while ranked 22nd in goals allowed in conceding 3.43. Clearly this isn’t a recipe for long-term success.

Goaltender Henrik Lundqvist is 2-4 with a  2.31 GAA so far. 

I’ll point out though that Calgary is 48-33 (+6.4 units) against teams with losing records the last two seasons, while New York is just 38-54 (-15.1 units) against clubs with winning records in the same span.

I think Calgary is the much better team and I look for it to find a way to get the job done at the end of the night in The Big Apple.

Good luck…Larry

Cowboys vs Redskins
+2 -115 at BMaker
Play Type: Top Premium

My 10* 35-Club Play is on the Dallas Cowboys (4:25 EST).

Washington sits atop the NFC East, but each team comes in with identical 3-3 records. To say this is an important game would be an understatement. 

Washington has looked great at times this year and pretty pedestrian in others this season. Dallas has struggled, but it broke out in a big way last week and I think it’ll carry that momentum over into this one.

Dallas’ QB Dak Prescott led his team to a 40-7 win over Jacksonville last week, going 17 of 27 for 183 yards and two TDs. WR Cole Beasley had two TD catches and 101 yards on the night. RB Ezekiel Elliot had 106 yards rushing and a 15-yard TD run as well. 

The Dallas defense looked great, limiting the Jags to just 204 yards of total offense, while also forcing two turnovers.

Overall the Cowboys are averaging 20.5 PPG and conceding 17.2. 

The Redskins are averaging 21.2 PPG and conceding 20.8. Last week they held on for a 23-17 victory over the Panthers as Alex Smith would go for 163 yards and two TDs. RB Adrian Peterson would post 97 yards on 17 carries.

I’ll point out though that Washington is a poor 1-6 ATS in its last seven vs. the NFC East and only 1-7 ATS in its last eight following a SU victory. 

Dallas on the other hand is interestingly 5-1 ATS in its last six after posting more than 150 yards rushing in its previous game. 

The Boys have covered in five of the last seven in this series and the underdog has covered in 30 of the last 40 meetings. 

Grab the points.

Panthers vs Eagles

Play Type: Premium

My 8* Las Vegas Insider is on the Carolina Panthers (1:00 EST).

Carolina comes in off a 23-17 loss to the Redskins on the road, while the Eagles enter off a 34-13 road win over the Giants (I had Philly in that one.) 

Note that this is a revenge game for Carolina as Philadelphia won 28-23 on the road last year.

Overall the Panthers are averaging 24.2 PPG and conceding 22.8. RB Christian McCaffrey has 349 yards and he leads the fourth ranked rushing unit in the league. In last week’s loss Cam Newton was solid in defeat with 275 yards, two TD’ and an INT.

Philadelphia looked a lot better last week, but I’m going to caution in reading too much into the victory over the hapless Giants. Newton and the Panthers are an entirely different “animal.” 

Eagles’ QB Carson Wentz was a stand-out last week with 278 yards, three TDs and no INTs. Overall Philadelphia is averaging 22.8 PPG and conceding 19.5. 

I’ll point out thought agh Carolina is 9-5 ATS in its last 14 as an underdog, while Philadelphia is only 6-7 ATS in its last 13 as a favorite in the 3.5 to 9.5 points range.

The Panthers desperately need a road victory to keep pace with their division and I think they catch the defending champs “flat footed” here. Grab the points.

Browns vs Bucs
-3 -111 at pinnacle
Play Type: Top Premium

My 10* Wipeout Winner is on the Tampa Bay Buccaneers (1:00 EST).

Tampa looks to get back on track at home after three straight losses and take advantage of a Browns team which enters off a blowout loss at home to the Bolts.

Baker Mayfield’s numbers have declined steadily each game he’s played. He doesn’t have much help either throwing to the likes of Antonio Callaway, Jarvis Landry and Damion Ratley. Note that no pass catcher has more than one TD on the team.

For the record, Mayfield has four TDs and five INTs. Last week he was held to 47.8 percent passing with one TD. 

Tampa comes back home desperate for a win as well after last week’s 34-29 loss to the Falcons. The defense has fallen apart of late, allowing 439.8 YPG, but clearly the unit catches a big break to bounce back this week facing Cleveland’s anemic attack. 

The Bucs’ offense looked a lot better with Jameis Winston back under center last week though and I think that momentum gets carried over here.

Note as well that Tampa is 9-3 ATS in its last 12 after allowing more than 350 yards in its previous game, while Cleveland is 3-10-1 ATS in its last 14 on the road.

I think this is going to be a blowout from start to finish. Lay the points.

Good luck…Larry

Patriots vs Bears
UNDER 49½ -109 Lost
Play Type: Premium

My 9* Total is on the under Pats/Bears (1:00 EST).

New England enters off a high-scoring shoot-out victory at home over the Chiefs and I think it’ll be more conservative here in this difficult road venue Sunday afternoon. 

Chicago sports one of the best defensive fronts in the league with pass rusher Khalil Mack leading the charge. 

The Pats now also have a legitimate RB threat in Sony Michel, who I expect to see a lot of action today. Last week he had 106 rushing yards with two TD’s. 

Last week the Dolphins’ Brock Osweiler had 380 passing yards and two TD’s against Chicago. But performances like that have been few and far between for the Bears’ defense and a return to form in this important game and on home field is imminent in my opinion. 

I’ll point out as well that New England has seen the total go under the number in five of its last seven when the line in the game is set between +3 and -3, while Chicago has seen the total dip below the posted number in 16 of its last 26 as an underdog and in 11 of its last 17 at home.

For all the reasons listed above, play the under.

My 10* ABSOLUTE BLOWOUT on Hawaii (11:55 EST).

Nevada is 3-4 overall and 1-2 in Mountain West play. It most recently lost its second straight, most recently a 31-27 setback to Boise State.

The Wolfpack were out gained by a whopping 506-386 margin. QB Ty Gangi was just 24 of 42 for 204 yards, two TDs and an INT. 

Overall Nevada is averaging 31.6 PPG and conceding 33.6. 

Hawaii on the other hand is 6-2, including 3-0 in Conference action. The Warriors come in off a 49-23 non-conference loss to BYU this past Saturday (I had the Cougars in that one!) WR John Ursua had 89 yards and a TD. QB Cole McDonald has 26 TDs and three INTs on the year.

Overall Hawaii is averaging 36.5 PPG and it’s conceding 32. 

I think Nevada is overmatched on both sides of the ball today. The Wolfpack also come in with zero momentum and they’ve been struggling away from friendly confines as well.

The Warriors can smell the blood in the water in my opinion (note as well that Hawaii is 7-2 ATS in its last nine after allowing 48 points or more in its previous contest.) 

Lay the points and expect a rout.

Good luck…Larry


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."
