My free play is on the Hou Astros at 4:05 ET: Oakland's Matt Olson delivered a walk-off homer in Friday's 4-3 (10 innings) victory over the Houston Astros and last night, had two hits, two runs and an RBI to pace an 11-hit attack in Saturday's 7-1 win. The Athletics have erased a 12-game deficit in a two-month span and can take over first place in the AL West when they cap a three-game series with the visiting Houston Astros on Sunday afternoon. Oakland has gone 40-13 since the middle of June to tie the defending champs atop the division, while the Astros have gone a modest 8-13 their last 21 games (Houston will take the field today having lost seven of its last eight). The Astros are 7-12 since reigning MVP Jose Altuve (knee) last played a game July 25.

Justin Verlander (11-8, 2.52 ERA) takes the mound and will be making his third attempt at career win No. 200. He was knocked around by Seattle in his first bid to join the 200-win club back on August 9 (allowed six ERs in just two innings) and then received a tough loss against Colorado this past Tuesday. Verlander limited the Rockies to two runs while striking out 11 in six innings but was on the losing end of a 5-1 setback. Verlander owned a 1.11 ERA at the end of May and sat 9-2 with a 1.61 ERA on June 14. However, he's just 2-6 over his last 11 starts, with Houston going 4-7 in that span. He enters this contest with Houston 14-12 in all of his 26 starts in 2018 and his moneyline mark of minus-$1383 ranks dead-last among all 2018 starters. Verlander blanked the Athletics over six innings in a matchup July 10 at home and is 11-6 with a 2.55 ERA in 19 career encounters (including 2-0 in 2018).

Oakland lefty Sean Manaea (11-8, 3.44 ERA) takes the mound for the A's. He lasted just 2 2/3 inning in an August 7 loss to the Dodgers but bounced back from that poor start to defeat the Mariners with 7 2/3 innings of two-run ball on Monday. He was reached for three runs and seven hits over four innings opposite Verlander in Houston back on July 10. Manaea is 1-1 against the Astros this season and 2-4 with a 2.82 ERA in 11 career starts against them. This will be his 26th start of 2018, 10 more than any other Oakland starter.

Oakland is the hotter team and the Astros remain without Altuve (note: the three-time batting champ is set to begin a rehab assignment Sunday with Triple-A Fresno). However, I'll back Verlander and the defending champs here, as they look to avoid the three-game sweep. Verlander owns a 2.52 ERA in 11 career starts in Oakland and while Manaea has been Oakland's busiest pitcher, he's not in the class of Verlander, who is overdue to rip off a hot stretch. Take the defending champs.

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.

Good luck…Larry

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.

Good luck…Larry

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.

Good luck…Larry

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.

UNDER 7½ -110
Play Type: Top Premium

My 10* O/U PERFECT STORM is on the under Astros/A’s (4:05 EST).

These teams went “over” the final 7.5 number in yesterday’s contest as the A’s pulled away for the 7-1 victory. Each side sends out its ace in the finale of this three-game series and in my opinion, everything points to a classic “duel.” 

The visitors hand the ball to Justin Verlander (11-8, 2.52 ERA) who comes in off an unfortunate loss to Colorado on Tuesday, as he’d give up just two runs and strike out 11 over six innings. His 217 K’s on the year rank fifth overall. Note that Verlander has been at his best on the road with a sparkling 9-2, 1.74 ERA record thus far.

The home side counters with Sean Manaea (11-8, 3.44) who gave up three runs off five hits with three walks while striking out one over 2.2 innings in a loss to the Dodgers on Tuesday. Starts like that though have been few and far between for the southpaw, who will now look to bounce back here and finish the regular season strong. Note that Manaea has a solid 1.05 WHIP and a 6-0, 2.81 ERA record in all day games.

I’ll point out as well that Houston has already seen the total go under the number in 20 of 30 this year as a road favorite in the -125 to -175 range, while Oakland has seen the total dip below the posted number in six of nine as a home dog in the +125 to +175 range. 

For all the reasons listed above, play on the under.

My 9* Las Vegas Insider is on the Atlanta Braves (1:35 EST).

The Braves fell 5-3 to the Rockies as -165 favorites yesterday. I think the home side bounces back in the finale of this three game set though.

The visitors hand the ball to German Marquez (10-9, 4.51 ERA) who struck out seven and walked two in a victory over Houston on Tuesday, ultimately giving up one run over seven innings. After a poor June, Marquez has been sharp since early July and not surprisingly he’s been better on the road than at home. But despite all of that, I still think he’ll have his hands full here.

The home side counters with Anibal Sanchez (6-3, 3.07) who for the most part has exceeded expectations as well this year. Note that he’s 2-1 with a 1.69 ERA in all day games thus far.

From a situational stand point though, this one highly favors the home side, as note that Colorado is just 16-24 (-8.3 units) in all day games, while Atlanta is 25-16 (+12 units) in the same position.

All things considered, a great price. Play on the Braves.

My 8* Situational Stunner is on the Chicago Cubs (1:35 EST).

I had a play on the Cubs yesterday and while that pick came up short, I think the visitors will bounce back in the finale of this three game set on Sunday afternoon.

Chicago hands the ball to Jose Quintana (10-9, 4.46 ERA) who comes in off an outing to forget against the Brewers on Tuesday, conceding five runs off six hits over five innings. Note that he’s been better on the road (3.99 ERA) that at home (5.00).

The home side counters with Jameson Taillon (9-9, 3.66) who gave up three earned runs off seven hits and a walk over six innings Tuesday in what turned out to be a loss to the Twins. Taillon owns a 3.99 ERA at home, but note that Pittsburgh is just 15-22 (-7.8 units) against southpaws this year. 

The Cubs are 53-41 against right-handed starters. They’re also a solid 33-27 on the road (71-50 overall). 

I like Quintana to bounce back here and match Taillon inning for inning and in a scenario like that, I think the value swings to the revenge-minded underdog, Play on Chicago.

My 8* Wipeout Winner is on the San Francisco Giants (1:10 EST).

I had a play on the Giants yesterday and while that pick came up empty, I think the visiting side will bounce back in the finale of this three-game set on Sunday afternoon.

San Francisco sends Andrew Suarez (4-8, 4.40 ERA) to the hill, and he most recently went six scoreless with four K’s in an unfortunate no-decision to the Dodgers on Tuesday. 

The home side counters with the volatile Luis Castillo (6-10, 5.04) who was rocked for five runs off five hits with one walk while striking out seven over 5.2 innings in a loss to the Diamondbacks on Sunday. He’s now given up three homers over his last 11 innings of work. 

Despite yesterday’s setback the Giants are still 25-17 (+13 units) in all day games, while the Reds are just 22-26 in the same position.

Suarez has been far from perfect, but I think the rookie is the correct call here as I like the Giants to respond in this bounce back situation and facing the erratic Castillo. Play on San Francisco.

Good luck…Larry

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."
