Giants vs Padres
+102 at SC Consensus
Play Type: Top Premium

My 9* Situational Stunner is on the SD Padres at 10:10 ET.

The Giants continue to go toe-to-toe with the Dodgers, as they currently own a ONE-game lead in the 'battle' for the NL West crown and MLB's best overall record. Meanwhile, the Padres, who were expected to be the NL West team that would 'push' the Dodgers in 2021, have lost EIGHT of their last 10 (including four in a row) after last night's 6-5 loss to the Giants. The 76-74 Padres are now on the brink of elimination in the NL wild-card race, having fallen FIVE games back with just 12 to play.

The second contest of this three-game series is tonight and will feature a couple of pitchers plucked from the scrap heap. The Giants will go with 37-year-old Scott Kazmir (0-1, 6.43 ERA) in the spot normally occupied by the injured Johnny Cueto (elbow). Kazmir was signed to a minor-league deal earlier this year but hasn't won a major-league game since 2016. However, he has won four times this season, three times at Sacramento and once in Tokyo while pitching for Team USA in the Olympics. 

The Padres are turning to Vince Velasquez (3-7, 6.09 ERA), who was added by San Diego last week to help fill out a starting rotation that's been missing injured Blake Snell and Chris Paddack. Velasquez had been released by the Philadelphia Phillies three days earlier. He made his Padres debut last Friday at St Louis in an 8-2 loss, allowing four runs in four innings.

Neither starter instills much confidence but Velasquez has been pitching in the majors regularly, while expecting much of anything from Kamir, is nothing more than wishful thinking. 'Last Chance Saloon' these days for San Diego. The bet says that Kazmir may be "just what the doctor ordered!" 

Good luck...Larry

Cardinals vs Brewers

My 10* Division Dominator (NL Central) is on the Mil Brewers at 7:40 ET.

The St Louis Cardinals battled through serious COVID issues in 2020 to make the postseason for the SEVENTH time in the last 10 years. The 2021 Cards  have surged to 12 wins in their last 13, including 10 in a row after beating the Brewers 2-1 last night in Milwaukee. The 81-69 Cards are now FOUR games ahead in the race for the NL's No. 2 wild card spot. The Brewers managed to make the expanded playoff field in 2020, despite a 29-31 record. However, the Brewers are currently 91-60, 9 1/2-games up in the NL Central over the Cards (it's the second-largest division lead in MLB).

While the Brewers have all but clinched the division title, I believe Milwaukee is in need of a win here. The Brewers have lost FIVE of their last seven, including each of the first two of this four-game series against the surging Cardinals. The visitors hand the ball to Miles Mikolas (1-2, 4.50 ERA), who is nowhere near the pitcher he was back in 2018, when he went 18-4 with a 2.83 ERA to finish 6th in the Cy Young voting. He followed with a 9-14 (4.16 ERA) in 2019 and then missed the entire 2020 season due to undergoing surgery to repair a flexor tendon in his right arm. He's been limited to just seven starts in 2021 and while he's off a good outing against the struggling Padres on Friday (pitched 5.2 scoreless innings in his first victory of the year), his sample size is small for 2021. We do know this. His home ERA is 3.21 but his road ERA is 8.59!

Milwaukee's Brett Anderson (4-8, 4.18 ERA) has been around since 2009 and has pitched better than what his win/loss record would indicate. He's been reactivated off the 10-day IL after a minor shoulder issue. He owns a 3.04 ERA in five career starts against St Louis and beat them 9-3 back on April 11 (allowed one run on five hits and two walks in five innings).

My mother taught me to never stand in front of trains, but in this case, Mikolas and the Cards are going to finally get derailed by this revenge-minded Brewers side which is 7-2 in its last nine when trying to avenge back-to-back home losses against an opponent. It's a GREAT price on Milwaukee.

Good luck...Larry

Twins vs Cubs
+103 at SC Consensus
Play Type: Free

My free play is on the Chi Cubs at 7:40 ET.

Two of 2021's most disappointing teams cap a brief two-game IL series Wednesday night at Wrigley Field. Both the Minnesota Twins (AL Central) and Chicago Cubs (NL Central) won their respective divisions in 2020 but the Twins take the field on Wednesday just 66-85, while the Cubs check in at 67-84. The Twins snapped a two-game losing streak Tuesday, collecting 16 hits in a 9-5 victory. 

Wednesday's starters are Minnesota rookie Joe Ryan (1-1, 2.12 ERA) squaring off against Chicago's Kyle Hendricks (14-6, 4.81 ERA). Ryan lost his major league debut to the visiting Cubs back on Sep 1, allowing three runs and three hits in five innings, Ryan has then limited the Cleveland Indians to one run and four hits over 12 innings over his past two starts. Hendricks' 4.81 ERA is 1 1/2-runs higher than his career mark of 3.36 but he's been able to post 14 victories, just two wins shy of his career-best total of 2016. Hendricks went 16-8 with a 2.13 ERA in 2016, the year the Cubs finally won a World Series for the first time since 1908!

Hendricks has struggled at Wrigley Field in 2021, going 6-4 with a 5.28 ERA, while allowing 17 HRs in 87 innings. He hasn't earned a victory at home since July 9 but this is likely to be his final home start of the season. Cubs Win! Cubs Win!

Good luck...Larry

Mariners vs A's
-130 at SC Consensus
Play Type: Premium

My 8* Weekly Wipeout is on the Oak A's at 9:40 ET.

Oakland opened its four-game home series with Seattle having won five in a row but after back-to-back losses Monday and Tuesday, the A's and Mariners are both 82-69, leaving them three games back of the red-hot Blue Jays for the AL's No. 2 wild card spot. The last two games of this series could be a make-or-break situation for one of the teams.

The starting pitchers are Seattle's (12-6, 3.66 ERA) and Oakland's Cole Irvin (10-13, 3.94 ERA). Flexen began his career with the Mets, going 3-11 with an 8.07 ERA. He was designated for assignment in late 2019 and signed a one-year contract with KBO's Doosan Bears, the reigning Korean Series champion. Flexen pitched to a 3.01 ERA with 10.2 K/9 for the Bears in 2020. He then signed a two-year, $4.75 million contract with the Seattle Mariners. He's blossomed into Seattle's 'ace!' Seattle is 19-9 in his 28 starts, giving him MLB's best moneyline mark (+$1,318) among all starters!

Irvin pitched for Philly in 2019 and 2020, making 19 appearances (three starts) in going 2-2 with a 6.75 ERA. He was traded to Oakland in January 2021 and has become a regular in Oakland's rotation. He comes into this big game having allowed just three ERs over 13 innings of his last two starts, giving him a 2.08 ERA and an 11-2 KW ratio.

It's impossible to say anything negative about Flexen but I'm confident in what we'll see tonight from Oakland's Irvin, who has now allowed three or fewer runs in EIGHT of his last nine trips to the mound. Oakland's been to the postseason in each of the last three years, while Seattle's last playoff appearance was back in 2001 (19-year drought!). So far, Seattle has looked the better team in this series (A's have scored just two runs in each of the first two) but the bet here is that's about to change.

Good luck...Larry

My 10* Getaway Day Game of the Month is on the Mil Brewers at 2:10 ET.

The Brewers have lost the first THREE of this four-game home series against the red-hot Cardinals. St Louis has won 11 straight and now has the inside track on the No. 2 wild card, as the Cards' 10-2 win Wednesday gives the team a 4 1/2-game lead on the Reds and Phillies.

St Louis has not clinched the No. 2 spot yet and veteran Adam Wainwright (16-7, 2.89 ERA) will take the mound looking to help the Cardinals complete a four-game sweep at Miller Park. Wainwright is arguably the hottest pitcher in MLB since the All-Star game. The Cards are 11-1 (he has a 1.81 ERA) over his last 12 starts. As for Milwaukee, despite losing Mon-Wed, the Brewers still lead the Cards by 8 1/2-games in the NL Central and only have 10 games remaining. They're going to clinch the division shortly and they'll be at home vs the East winner in the NLDS.

OK, all 'cards' on the table (pardon the pun!). I've played against Wainwright in each of his last two starts and while I've come up short each time, I believe the third time's a charm. I'm  looking for Adrian Houser (9-6, 3.43 ERA) to be up to the task of besting Wainwright.  Houser's success this season has been overlooked because of Burnes, Peralta and Woodruff. Here's the 'dope.' The Brewers are 17-7 in Houser's 24 starts in 2021, giving MLB's 10th-best moneyline mark (+$792) among all starters. Think Wainwright is on a roll? How about this? The Brewers are 12-1 in Houser's last 13 starts. He owns a 1.89 ERA in his three September starts (28 Ks in 19 IP) and owns a 2.93 home ERA on the season.

Yes, the Brewers will soon clinch the NL Central but they sure DON'T want to get swept at home by the Cards at this time of year. Enough is ENOUGH!  No four-game sweep for St Louis today. The play is Milwaukee.

Good luck...Larry


Age: 67 (turns 68 in November).

Years in handicapping: Larry entered his 38th year as a professional handicapper in September of 2021.

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 (began in 1985), the nation’s longest running pre-game handicapping show on the USA-TV network (also hosted Sports Desk on the same network from 1996-98). In then joined the panel of The Winning Edge in the early 2000s. 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 35-plus years, you get good at it."

Star Ratings: 9 and 10*s are considered "Best Bets." All other plays are rated between 6 and 8*s, depending on strength and/or price.

Release Times: Larry releases "daily sports" (MLB, NBA, NCAAB and NHL) on the day of the game. His full card is almost always available by 10:00 ET (save Late-Breaking games). In the FB season, Larry begins releasing plays as early as Tuesday. His full CFB card is typically complete by Thursday (on Friday, at the latest) and his full NFL card will be mostly complete by Friday (definitely by Saturday at 3:00 ET).

38-Club Play: It represents Larry's 38 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, via the internet. Like his 36-Club plays, expect no more than one play per month, per sport (rated 10*s).

Game of the Month and Game of the Year Plays: Always rated 10*s. Las Vegas Insider: Throughout his 36 years "in the business," Larry has become known as "the ultimate Las Vegas insider." The contacts he's developed over more than three 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 7 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 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 began releasing these plays in MLB '09 and he's expanded them since,to all sports (rated from 7-10*s, based on strength and/or price for moneyline sports).

PERFECT STORM: Larry just added these plays the last few years and his accompanying expert analysis makes these popular plays self-explanatory (typically rated 9 or 10*s but moneyline sports may be rated 7 or 8*s due to price).

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 7 and 10*s, depending on strength and price).

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!" Look for 3-game reports this FB season on Saturday (college) and Sunday (NFL). Get three plays on a single report from Larry (many will be TV games), the originator of the "Superstar Triple Play!".

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).

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."
