Saturday, August 19, 2017 Chicago White Sox vs. Texas Rangers (MLB) - 8:05 PM EDT Premium Pick Pick: Money Line: -205 Texas Rangers Pick Title: 9 Star Saturday Pennant Chaser (WIN) Don't look now but the Texas Rangers are making a serious run @ the last Wild Card spot in the AL. This is an intriguing matchup with the Rangers now facing one of their castoffs (after 8 seasons with them) whom their bats should be very familiar with in LHP Derek Holland. Yes, the Pale Hose do hit LHP better for average than the Rangers. However, that hasn't tabulated into W's when traveling since Chicago is now a perfect 0-6 versus southpaws on the road. Holland has been getting consistently pounded of late posting a 7.90 ERA over his last 3 starts as well as coming in @ a 6.23 ERA on the road. In addition, Holland has lost his last 5 road starts & his team has gone 3-14 over his last 17 starts. His ERA @ night is the bottom of the barrel @ 7.34 while going 3-8 his last 11 starts under the lights. My bottom line points to the other southpaw pitching in Marty Perez. Perez (came over from Guanare - capital city of Portuguesa State in Venezuela) has pitched excellent over his last 2 starts (back-to-back wins) giving up just 3 ER over a span of 14 IP. He'll face a team that's 21-42 traveling which blends in nicely since Perez has dominated the patsies registering a 19-7 record @ home versus losing ball clubs. Let's get ready for some balls to carry as we go to Globe Life Park @ Arlington to play the TEXAS RANGERS as my 9 Star Saturday Pennant Chaser! Friday, August 18, 2017 New York Yankees vs. Boston Red Sox (MLB) - 7:10 PM EDT Premium Pick Pick: Money Line: -130 Boston Red Sox Pick Title: 9 Star MLB Winning Edge Play (WIN) It's no secret that Drew Pomeranz has had the Yankees number pitching quite effectively against them his last 4 times out. Pomeranz is a BIG winning edge here that's shown up dependable in these given situations. On the Bronx Bombers' side of the ledger, Mike Montgomery has had his share of troubles versus Boston. My bottom line stresses that putting this kid in this venue is a lot of pressure to handle that he isn't close to mastering yet. The Red Sox have also executed 6 straight wins versus teams with a losing road record. Expect the home team to shine & enhance their very successful home record right here in the opener. Let's go to Fenway Park to play the BOSTON RED SOX as my 9 Star MLB Winning Edge Play! Wednesday, August 16, 2017 Cincinnati Reds vs. Chicago Cubs (MLB) - 8:05 PM EDT Premium Pick Pick: Money Line: -197 Chicago Cubs Pick Title: 9 Star Infamous Humpday Hottie (WIN) The bats went momentarily silent last night for the Cubs. Don't expect lightning to strike twice with Homer Bailey on the hill for the Reds. His over 8 ER plus showing of late tells us he's more than packed it in. On the flip side of the coin, we'll find John Lackey whose Chicago side has won 6 consecutive times his last 6 starts. In this seriously heated NL Central race, expect yesterday's hiccup to look long gone after the Cubs arsenal unleashes itself early tonight. Chicago takes a stronger hold on the division with a "W" here. Let's go to Wrigley one more time as we grab the CHICAGO CUBS as my 9 Star Infamous Humpday Hottie! NOTES: We're installing new computers & systems for football season this coming week from August 22nd thru August 24th so we'll not be giving plays those 3 days. Tuesday, August 15, 2017 Cincinnati Reds vs. Chicago Cubs (MLB) - 8:05 PM EDT Premium Pick Pick: Money Line: -170 Chicago Cubs Pick Title: 9 Star MLB Comebacker (LOSS) The Cubbies' bats revealed what they really can do when a race tightens down the stretch. Maddon is an excellent motivator. The Reds now face Kyle Hendricks who they haven't solved 4 times in a row. Hendricks should pitch around the power hitters enough to post the "W". Grab the CHICAGO CUBS one more time @ Wrigley as my 9 Star MLB Comebacker! NOTES: Another excellent week posting a 3-1 record & good for 75%. Zeroing in on the NFL in pre-season is pivotal (no bets but tons of talent evaluations). That's just what we aim to do to get a BIG jump start as the books catch up. This season, we'll celebrate our 10th anniversary of our NFL Handicapping World Championship! This season will be full of surprises as many teams will bounce back from off-seasons as well as over-achievers coming back down to earth. Expect many pre-season bets on team over/under total wins for the regular season. Stay tuned for an article later next Friday/Saturday. Here's our unbeatable records we've posted since April 18th. (Overall Handicapping Record Since Late 4/18-----67-28-----71%) (MLB Record In August-----12-3-----80%) (2017 MLB Overall Seasonal Record-----48-23-----68%) I hope everyone stays excited with our new system that's reaped BIG dividends since mid-April. We'll use it with utmost precision this football season! Inside Note: We'll be installing new computer systems Aug. 22nd thru 24th & will not be giving out selections.
