Play Type: Free

My free play is on the Min Twins at 8:10 ET. The Twins won their third straight game in beating the Tigers 15-8 last night, while the Tigers have now allowed 27 runs in losing three in a row. Minnesota made a surprise run to the wild-card game a year ago (finished 85-77 before losing to the Yankees) but the team's 2018 season went south early on this year. The 57-63 Twins are 12 games back of first-place Cleveland in the AL Central and even further back in the wild card race, at 14 1/2 games back. As for the 50-72 Tigers, the team's .410 winning percentage has them on pace to win 66 games (Detroit won 64 games in 2017).

Detroit lefty Matthew Boyd (7-10, 4.20 ERA) just defeated the Twins this past Sunday, when he gave up one run on two hits over six innings at Detroit in a 4-2 win. Boyd takes the mound tonight having won three of his last four overall starts, following a five-game losing streak. He is 1-1 with a 3.00 ERA in three starts against Minnesota this season (Tigers are 2-1) and 6-3 with a 3.79 ERA in 14 career outings. Minnesota's Kyle Gibson (6-9, 3.49 ERA) beat the Tigers last Saturday, allowing one run on seven hits in seven innings of a 4-3 victory. Gibson is 1-1 with a 2.77 ERA in two starts against Detroit this year but stands 7-8 with a shaky 5.22 ERA in 18 career outings against the Tigers.

Both starters come in pitching pretty well. Gibson is 4-3 in his last eight starts (Twins are 4-4) with a 3.51 ERA over that span, while Boyd owns a 2.37 ERA over five starts (3-2) since the All-Star break. However, the bottom line is that Detroit owns a better road record (18-42) than only Baltimore, while Minnesota is a solid 36-24 at home. Play the Twins.

Good luck...Larry

My 8* Situational Stunner is on the Seattle Mariners (10:10 EST).

I think that Wade LeBlanc and the hard-hitting home side have much more than just a “punchers chance” in this one.

The visitors hand the ball to Walker Buehler (5-4, 3.32 ERA) who comes in off a win over Houston on Sunday, giving up two earned runs off four hits over 5.1 innings. For the most part Buehler’s been solid this year, but I simply feel that he’s in the wrong place at the wrong time in this one.

And that’s because note that the M’s are 7-2 in their last nine as home dog in the +105 to +150 range.

The home side goes with Wade LeBlanc (7-2, 3.80) who gave up one run off two hits with one walk while striking out four over 6.1 innings in a no-decision to the Rangers on Monday. 

He’s been far from perfect this year, but he’s been almost perfect at home this season by going 6-1 with a very respectable 3.50 ERA. 

I like LeBlanc to match Buehler inning for inning and in a scenario like that, I like the hungry home side. Play on the Mariners.

Good luck…Larry

My 10* Las Vegas Insider is on the St. Louis Cardinals (8:15 EST).

I don’t think that the home field advantage can be overlooked as a very real deciding factor in this particular match-up. 

The visitors hand the ball to Freddy Peralta (5-3, 4.47 ERA) who for the most part has looked great this season. He’s shown some signs of slowing down of late though, having allowed 15 walks and 16 hits spanning his last four trips to the hill.

The home side counters with Joe Flaherty (6-6, 3.22) who had his start pushed back to Friday. Over 19 starts the 22-year old has exceeded expectations, posting the 3.22 ERA and a 127/36 K/W over 103.1 frames of work. 

I’m banking on Flaherty getting the better of his now scuffling rookie counterpart. Great price, play on the Cardinals.

My 8* Wipeout Winner is on the Philadelphia Phllies (6:05 EST).

All eyes will be in Philadelphia on Friday night for the much anticipated pitching match-up between the Mets’ Noah Syndergaard and the Phillies’ Aaron Nola. I think Nola is the safe wager here though, as he’s been unbeatable at home to this point.

Syndergaard (8-2, 3.22 ERA) comes in off a couple of strong outings since coming off the DL. It’s hard to say anything negative about Syndergaard, I simply feel that he’s in the wrong place at the wrong time in this one. 

Nola (13-3, 2.28) comes in off back-to-back strong performances as well. His 0.99 WHIP and 144/40 K/W over 148 innings, combined with his perfect 8-0, 2.07 ERA record at home make the Phillies the correct call here. 

Lay the price, play on Philadelphia.

Play Type: Premium

My 8* Situational Stunner is on the Buffalo Bills (7:30 EST).

Cleveland comes in off a 20-10 win over New York in its opener and suffice it to say, I think it’s primed for a letdown here in Week 2. Buffalo on the other hand will be slightly more motivated in this meaningless Week 2 matchup after falling 28-23 to the Panthers in my opinion. 

Nathan Peterman was 9 of 10 for 119 yards, a TD and an INT for the Bills last week. Third-stringer Josh Allen was 9 of 19 for 116 yards. Buffalo got offensive production as well from RB Marcus Murphy with 65 rushing yards and a score, while WR Kelvin Benjamin had 59 yards on four catches with a TD. 

The Browns got 212 yards and two TD’s from Baker Mayfield last week. Tyrod Taylor also produced an offensive TD, while WR Antonio Callaway made seven catches for 87 yards. 

I think Cleveland’s already seen enough of Mayfield though at this point to know what it’s going to get. The all important dress rehearsal is up next and I believe the Browns get caught looking past here. 

Buffalo’s depth on offense though is the difference maker for me though and I look for it carry over its momentum from last week. While the outright win is obviously not out of the question, I will in the end recommend grabbing as many points as you can. 

Play on Buffalo.

Good luck…Larry

My 10* PERFECT STORM is on the Detroit Lions (7:00 EST).

New York comes in off a 20-10 home loss in Week 1 to Cleveland, while the Lions return home after a 16-10 loss in Oakland last week. When these teams met in the regular season last year, Detroit won 24-10 on the road. 

Giants’ starting QB Eli Manning was 4 of 7 for 26 yards last week. Last year he had a poor 19/13 TD/INT ratio. Backup QB Davis Webb was just 9 of 22 for 70 yards. RB Saquon Barkley had 43 yards on five carries, including a 39 yard dash. 

Detroit looks to bounce back here after falling in Oakland in Week 1. QB Matt Cassel was 10 of 18 for 81 yards and zero TD’s. QB Jake Durock had 12 passes for 84 yards. RB Kenyon Johnson was a bright spot with 34 yards on seven carries. 

A large part of the Lions’ defensive unit sat out last week, but more starters are expected to see action this week, including DE Ziggy Ansah. 

Is it relevant that Detroit is 4-1-1 ATS in its last six against the NFC? It certainly doesn’t hurt! And note that the Giants are now just 1-4 ATS in their last five preseason contests.

I think that the home field advantage can’t be overlooked as a very real deciding factor in this particular matchup. Lay the points.

Good luck…Larry

The first 8* pick of my Superstar Triple Play is on the Chicago Cubs (8*) 7:05 EST).

I think Cubs’ starter Tyler Chatwood will get the better of Pirates’ right-hander Joe Musgrove on Saturday night.

Chatwood (4-5, 5.06 ERA) has been better on the road (3.99 ERA) than at home this year (5.52) and he’ll be getting a second chance in the rotation filling in for the injured Mike Montgomery. 

Musgrove (4-7, 3.49) started his 2018 campaign on fire but he’s predictably come back down to Earth. Most recently he gave up four runs off seven hits over six innings  in a loss to San Francisco on Sunday. 

Musgrove has been much better on the road (2.18 ERA) than at home (4.90) as well.

I’m banking on Chatwood getting the better of Musgrove. Play on Chicago.

The third 10* pick of my Superstar Triple Play is on the LA Dodgers (10:10 EST).

I think that this is a bigger mismatch on the mound than what the oddsmakers are trying to lead us to believe. 

The visitors hand the ball to Rich Hill (5-4, 3.57 ERA) who comes in off back-to-back strong outings and who owns a sharp 1.40 ERA over his last 30.1 innings of work. Note that he’s been particularly effective on the road as well with the 3-1, 3.11 ERA record to this point.

The home side counters with Erasmo Ramirez (0-2, 6.75) who returned from injury to take on the Astros in his last start. Ramirez looked decent, but overall he’s been terrible this season. 

For the most part MLB handicapping comes down to the starting pitching and when trying to properly assess a hurler, often “recent form” is the best indicator we have in doing that.

Recent form displayed by Hill suggests he’s going to be able to easily out-duel Ramirez. Lay the price, play on the Dodgers.

The second 8* pick of my Superstar Triple Play is on the San Francisco Giants (7:10 EST).

Two starters who have seen better days collide in this one on Saturday night, but for a number of different reasons, I think it favors crafty veteran southpaw Madison Bumgarner and the visiting San Francisco Giants.

Bumgarner (4-4, 2.71 ERA) most recently gave up two runs off seven hits with two walks while striking out four over six innings on Monday. He continues to battle and note that he owns a sharp 2.67 ERA in all night games so far this year.

The home side counters with the volatile Matt Harvey (5-7, 5.19) who gave up two runs off five hits with one walk while striking out seven in a no-decision to the Cardinals on Sunday. He was destroyed for eight runs over three innings in his previous outing. Note that he owns a poor 5.08 ERA at home.

I’m banking on Harvey taking a predictable step back here, and I expect Bumgarner to step up and take advantage. Play on the Giants.

My 8* Daytime Dominator is on the Houston Astros (4:05 EST).

As good as Trevor Cahill has looked in the early going for the A’s, I still think that Dallas Keuchel and the defending champs have the advantage in this one.

Keuchel (9-9, 3.43 ERA) has struggled at times this year, but he’s been very good since early July, posting a tiny 1.97 ERA over seven starts. Note that he’s consistently been at his best on the road as well with the solid 6-4, 3.00 ERA record thus far.

Cahill (4-2, 3.39) looked very average in his last start, giving up four runs off seven hits over 4.2 innings. It’s hard to say too many negative things about Cahill, so I won’t bother. I will point out though that the Astros are now 8-2 in their last ten road day games in which they’re a favorite in the -125 to -150 range. 

I’m banking on Keuchel getting the better of Cahill in this one. Lay the price.

The second pick of my Superstar Triple Play is on the Cincinnati Bengals (8*) 7:00 EST

The Bengals come in off a 30-27 home win over Chicago last week and I think they’ll carry that momentum over here. Dallas has big expectations on its shoulders this year and it came out in Week 1 of the preseason and lost 24-21 to the 49ers. 

Last week Bengals’ QB Andy Dalton was 6 of 8 for 103 yards, two TD’s and one INT. RB Giovani Bernard had 23 yards on four carries. AJ Green had two catches for 48 yards. 

Cowboys’ QB Dak Prescott was 3 for 3 for 39 yards and one TD last week. Backup QB Cooper Rush had 145 yards and a TD as well. RB Bo Scarbough had 33 yards on nine carries and had two catches for 19 yards.

Neither team’s defense looked very sharp last week, so I’m calling that are a “wash” right now. Cincinnati though has the offensive depth to stretch the home side and keep this one competitive and while I obviously wouldn’t be shocked by an outright upset, I will in the end recommend grabbing as many points as you can in what I expect to be a battle to the end.

Play on the Bengals.

The third pick of my Superstar Triple Play is on the San Francisco 49ers (10*)

San Francisco got the better of Dallas 24-21 last week, while Houston beat Kansas City 17-10 on the road. 

It was the way the 49ers closed that makes me think they’ll come out fired up here, as they were down 14-0 before then storming back to shock the Cowboys. Nick Mullens was 11 of 13 for 141 yards one INT and one game winning TD. CJ Beathard was 10 of 20 for 181 yards. Jimmy Garoppolo was just 3 of 6 for 34 yards, but he’s expected to see a lot more time today. 

Houston is expected to give QB DeShaun Watson a little more playing time in Week 2 after he only saw one snap in Week 1. Backup QB Brandon Weeden struggled in the regular season after Watson went down last year, but he looked decent in the Week 1 victory by going 9 of 11 for 97 yards and two TD’s. 

Watson though isn’t expected to play much and the 49ers depth at the QB position makes them the correct call in this meaningless Week 2 contest in my opinion. Play on San Francisco.

The first pick of my Superstar Triple Play is on the Jacksonville Jaguars (8*) 1:00 EST

Jacksonville looks to bounce back in Week 2 of the NFL preseason after falling 24-20 at home to New Orleans last week, while Minnesota looks primed for a letdown here in my opinion after its 42-28 road win over Denver. 

The Jaguars actually had a 13-10 half time lead in Week 1, but they’d be unable to hold on late with the back-ups and wanna-be’s falling short. RB Leornard Fournette had 24 yards, while four different receivers posted at least 20 receiving yards. I think it’s also worthy to note that Josh Lambo kicked a pair of long field goals, connecting from 49 on each.

Minnesota looked great, as Kirk Cousins hit all four of his passes for 42 yards. Backup Trevor Siemian was 11 of 17 for 165 yards, two TD’s and an INT. The Vikings looked average defensively though, and note that they did allow a pre turn for a score law in the first half.

The hungrier team is the one which has more to prove. And the team that has more to prove this week are the defending AFC South champions. While I obviously wouldn’t be completely shocked by an outright upset, I will in the end recommend grabbing as many points as you can as I look for this one to come right down to the wire.

Play on the Jaguars.

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."
