White Sox vs Brewers
-115 at 5Dimes
Play Type: Top Premium

My 9* Pitching Mismatch is on the Mil Brewers at 8:10 ET.

The White Sox were a dark horse pick by some in the AL Central. Chicago stumbled out of the gate 1-4 but after last night's 6-4 win at Milwaukee in the opener of a four-game, home-and-home set, the White Sox have now won FIVE in a row to reach 6-4. The 3-4 Brewers saw their weekend series with the Cards canceled due to positive COVID-19 tests of some St Louis players and last night was the team's first game since last Wednesday.

Tonight's pitching matchup features Chicago's Lucas Giolito (0-1, 6.52 ERA) and Milwaukee's Brandon Woodruff (1-1, 1.59 ERA). Giolito posted a horrific 6.13 ERA in 2018 but turned things around in a big way last season, going 14-9 with a 3.41 ERA (made the All Star team). Giolito recorded just 11 outs while allowing SEVEN runs in an Opening Day loss to visiting Minnesota but rebounded last Wednesday at Cleveland, scattering four hits, two walks and six strikeouts in six shutout innings (White Sox won, 4-0). This marks his first appearance vs Milwaukee.

Woodruff had a breakout season in 2019, making the All Star team. He posted his 11th victory in his first start after the All-Star break but then suffered an oblique strain that sidelined him for nearly two months. He made just three starts (including a wild card game vs the Nats) after returning on Sep 17 but one must acknowledge that the Brewers were a MONEY-MAKING 18-4 in his 22 regular season starts in 2019! Woodruff has been sharp in two 2020 starts, allowing two ERs in five innings of a 3-0 loss to the Cubs, before pitching 6.1 scoreless innings while allowing just one hit with 10 Ks in a 3-0 win vs Pittsburgh. He retired a career-best 17 in a row at one point against the Pirates.

Like Giolito, Woodruff has never faced his opponent (White Sox) but considering the Brewers have won 19 of Woodruff's 24 starts since 2019, one HAS to take note. Meanwhile, Giolito is 1-6 with a 6.96 ERA in 10 interleague starts. It's Woodruff over Giolito tonight in a BIG way!

Good luck...Larry

Mets vs Nationals

My 9* Weekly Wipeout is on the Was Nationals at 7:05 ET.

The 4-7 NY Mets snapped a five-game slide with a 7-2 win last night in Atlanta, as Jacob deGrom pitched six innings (two ERs / 10 Ks) in earning his first win of 2020. New York visits the nation's capital tonight to open a two-game series with Nationals, who are 3-4 and have waited FIVE days to return to action. The Nationals haven't played since last Thursday, when they beat the Toronto Blue Jays 6-4. Washington's weekend series against the Miami Marlins was postponed after 18 uniformed members of the Marlins tested positive for the coronavirus. Tonight's pitching matchup is a battle of left-handers, as New York's Steven Matz (0-1, 3.18 ERA) squares off against Washington's Patrick Corbin (0-0, 1.42 ERA). Here's the 'skinny' on Matz. He was terrific at Citi Field last season, going 8-2 with a 2.31 ERA and .230 BAA but  AWFUL away from home, going 3-8 with a 6.62 ERA and .293 BAA. He's also just 1-5 (3.41 ERA) in 12 career starts vs Washington, although the Mets are a more respectable 6-6 in those starts. Corbin didn't factor into the decision in his season debut July 26, when he allowed just one run in 6.1 innings in the Nationals' 3-2 loss to the Yankees. Corbin had a solid season for the Nats in 2019, going 14-7 with a 3.25 ERA in 33 starts (Washington was 21-12). He's just 2-5 with a 4.46 ERA in 14 career games (13 starts / teams are 5-8) against the Mets.  Washington had an intrasquad scrimmage Saturday and more good news came in the fact that the Nats welcomed back Juan Soto. His positive coronavirus test was announced hours before the Opening Day game against the New York Yankees on July 23. Soto said he never displayed any symptoms and believed his result may have been a false positive. He was allowed to return after testing negative twice last week, following clearance from the D.C. Department of Health. Soto (21-years-old) batted .282 in the regular season in 2019, adding 34 HRs and 110 RBI. He then hit five HRs with 14 RBI in the playoffs, while helping the Nationals to their first championship in franchise history. His return is a BIG deal, with Anthony Rendon leaving in FA for the Angels. Corbin gives Washington a solid effort, while Matz once again struggles away from home. New York's winning streak ends at ONE! Good luck...Larry

Celtics vs Heat
-3½ -109 at pinnacle
Play Type: Top Premium

My 10* Situational Stunner is on the Bos Celtics at 6:30 ET.

The Boston Celtics and Miami Heat are both 1-1 in the NBA's restart, leaving the 44-22 Celtics 2 1/2 games up on the 42-25 Heat with only SIX games left on the schedule as the teams battle for the East's No. 3 seed. Boston last played Sunday, holding off Portland 128-124, in a game they once led by 24 points! Miami played yesterday afternoon and lost a tough one, 107-103 to Toronto. Miami lost the game from the three-point line, shooting just 14 of 45 (31.1%), while allowing Toronto to connect on 16 of 32 (50.0%).

Boston's best player, Jayson Tatum, was a brutal 2-of-18 from the floor in Boston's seven-point loss to Milwaukee last Friday but he rebounded to score 34 points plus add a career-high eight assists in the Sunday win over Portland. The third overall pick in the 2017 NBA Draft has increased his scoring average in each of his three seasons; from 13.9 to 15.7 to 23.4. PG Kemba Walker is on a minutes-restriction as he fights his way back from a knee injury but had 16 points (19 minutes) in the loss to Milwaukee, then added 14 points in 22 minutes against Portland. Jaylen Brown added 30 points against the Blazers (had 22 vs the Bucks) and Gordon Hayward added 22. The Celtics' bench is led by guard Marcus Smart, who is one of the best defenders in the league and also averages 13.5 PPG. Backup Center Enes Kanter averages 8.1 points and 7.6 rebounds.

The Heat are led by the all-around talent of Jimmy Butler (20.2-6.6-6.1) but also have SEVEN more players scoring in double digits. That group is led by Bam Adebayo (16.2-10.4-5.1), an All-Star for the Heat this year, plus veteran PG Goran Dragic (16.2 PPG & 5.1 APG). Adebayo had a quiet game, producing 10 points and eight rebounds vs Toronto, while Dragic had 25 points, five rebounds and five assists.

It should be noted that Miami was 24-9 through the end of December but since the calendar moved  to 2020, has gone a pedestrian 18-16. I will also bring up the fact that the Heat are 5-6 this season without rest but 37-19 with at least one day between games. The Celtics are 2-0 against the Heat this season, winning 112-93 on Dec 4 and 109-101 on Jan 28. Boston takes a FIVE-game regular-season winning streak against Miami into this contest and extends it to SIX straight, giving them a 3 1/2 game lead for that No. 3 seed with just FIVE games remaining.

Good luck...Larry

Red Sox vs Rays

Play Type: Top Premium

My 10* PERFECT STORM is on the TB Rays at 6:40 ET.

The Tampa Bay Rays and Boston Red Sox are still looking to establish their identity as they prepare to open a two-game series Tuesday at St Petersburg, Fl. Boston began the 2020 by losing two of three at Fenway to the Orioles (54-108) and then split a four-games series with the Mets, followed by losing all three at Yankee Stadium. Boston heads to South Florida just 3-7, already leaving them 5 1/2 games back of the MLB-best 8-1 Yankees. The Rays opened 4-1 but have promptly lost FIVE in a row, including getting swept in a three-game series at the Baltimore Orioles this past weekend (see above). 

Boston's Nathan Eovaldi (1-0, 2.45 ERA) is set to take the mound opposite Tampa Bay's Charlie Morton (0-1, 8.00 ERA). Boston starters own a league-worst 6.69 ERA but Eovaldi has been the lone bright spot, as the Red Sox have won both of his 2020 starts. Morton turned his career around after signing with Houston in 2017, going 29-10 in 2017-18. That got him a two-year, $30 million deal with Tampa Bay and Morton went 16-6, 3.05 ERA in 2019 for the Rays. He made his second All Star team last year plus set career highs in wins (16), ERA (3.05), innings (194.2) and in strikeouts (240). He also led all major league pitchers in HRs/9 innings pitched, at 0.694.[29]. However, Morton allowed six ERs (4 IP) in his first start of 2020 but was better in his second, allowing two ERs over five innings. 

Eovaldi owns a 2-4 record with a 5.45 ERA in eight career appearances (six starts / teams are 2-4 ) against the Rays, while Morton is 5-1 (4.40 ERA) in 11 career starts vs Boston (teams are 8-3). I noted Boston's overall pitching woes at the top but that's hardly Boston's only issue! The Red Sox own a .210 team BA with new additions Manuel Margot (3-for-30), Hunter Renfroe (6-for-33) and Yoshitomo Tsutsugo (6-for-30) among those really struggling. Morton gets his first win of 2020 in this one. Good luck...Larry

My 10* Las Vegas Insider is on the NY Rangers at 8:08 ET.

The Carolina Hurricanes have won the first two games of this best-of-five series with the NY Rangers and Tuesday night look to "close it out" at Scotiabank Arena in Toronto. Andrei Svechnikov's hat trick on Monday in Carolina's 4-1 victory was the first for the franchise in 144 all-time postseason games. "The games come fast and furious, but the guys love to play," said Carolina head coach Rod Brind'Amour. His counterpart, New York's David Quinn said of Svechnikov, "He's quickly emerging as one of the best players in this league."

There was very little difference between Carolina's play (81 points) and New York's (79 points) in the regular season plus let me remind all right here that the Rangers won all FOUR meetings with Carolina (Rangers outscored the Hurricanes 17-9). The Rangers have a streak of 21 consecutive playoff series with at least one victory and my bet that steak WON'T end here!

Good luck...Larry

Islanders vs Panthers
+112 at pinnacle
Play Type: Top Premium

My 9* Daytime Dominator is on the Fla Panthers at 12:08 ET.

The NY Islanders had 80 points when the regular season was stopped because of COVID-19 and the Florida Panthers had 78. However, the Islanders won all three meetings between the two teams and have now taken the first two contests of this best-of-five qualifying round series. New York won 2-1 in the first game and then 4-2 yesterday afternoon, as goalie Semyon Varlamov has stood tall in goal by allowing just three goals on 56 shots (.946 SP). The loss leaves the Panthers on the verge of losing their first-round matchup for the FIFTH straight time.

Does this mean the series is over? I'm not ready to concede that it does. The three regular season meetings saw the Islanders win two, one-goal contests (one in a shootout) plus a 3-1 victory with the third goal being an empty netter. Florida goalie Segei Bobrovsky has long been a quality netminder in this league, twice winning the Vezina Trophy. He was a HUGE reason the Blue Jackets upset the Presidents' Trophy-winning Tampa Bay Lightning in a four-game sweep during the 2018-19 postseason. He signed a seven-year, $70 million contract with the Florida Panthers back in July of 2019. The Panthers haven't defeated the Islanders since a 4-2 win back on Nov 10, 2018 but as Rod Stewart would say, "Tonight's the Night!" In this case, 'Today's the Day," as the game starts around 12 noon ET.

Good luck...Larry


Age: 65 (turns 66 in November).

Years in handicapping: Larry entered his 36th year as a professional handicapper in August of 2019.

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). 36-Club Play: It represents Larry's 36 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."
