Padres vs Giants
-128 at 5Dimes
Play Type: Free

My free play is on the SD Padres at 7:10 ET (Game 1).

The SD Padres and SF Giants cap their respective season with a four-game series, beginning with a Friday doubleheader. The 34-22 Padres (34-22) have clinched second place in the NL West behind the Los Angeles Dodgers and need just one more St Louis loss in its final four games to be assured of the No. 4 playoff spot in the NL and home-field advantage in the first round. As for the 28-28 Giants, they dropped out of the lead in the National League wild-card race last night with a 5-4, 11-inning loss to the Colorado Rockies. The Giants will take the field Friday battling with Cards, Reds, Marlins, Phillies and Brewers for the two NL wild-card spots, with the NL Central and East teams also battling each other for second place and an automatic playoff position.

Dinelson Lamet (3-1, 2.07 ERA) takes the mound for the Padres in Game 1, while the Giants turn to Tyler Anderson (3-3, 4.53 ERA) in the opener. Lamet made 34 starts for SD in 2018 and 2019, going 10-13 with a 4.37 ERA. However, he's had a "breakout year" in 2020, as the Padres have won NINE of his 11 starts. He owns a 0.87 WHIP and .166 BAA to go along with his 2.07 ERA. He takes the mound tonight with the Padres having won each of his last SIX starts, as Lamet's posted a 2.43 ERA with a 53-11 KW ratio.

Anderson began his career with the Rockies in 2016 and over his first two seasons, went 11-12 with a 4.09 ERA over 34 starts. He made 32 starts in 2018, going 7-9 with a 4.55 ERA. He began the 2019 season in the Rockies rotation but was quickly placed on the DL due to knee inflammation. He came off the DL a week later and made five starts before being demoted to AAA. He underwent major season-ending surgery to correct a chondral defect on June 11 of 2019 in his left knee, which was expected to require a lengthy recovery time. He made just five starts in all of 2019, going 0-3 with an 11.76 ERA. Anderson was claimed off waivers by the San Francisco Giants on Dec 2. His 5-1 victory over the D'backs on Aug 12  was the first complete game of his career!

He had entered that start 1-14 in his previous 20 starts (teams were 4-16). He was lit up in his two starts following that CG (11 ERs allowed in just 8.2 innings for an 11.88 ERA) but he's 2-0 in his last three starts (Giants are 3-0), posting a 3.95 ERA. Bottom line is, he enters this contest 4-16 over his last 26 starts, with his teams going 8-18 (that's a 286 winning percentage. My play is Lamet over Anderson.

Good luck...Larry

Phillies vs Rays
-149 at betonline
Play Type: Premium

My 8* play is on the TB Rays at 6:40 ET.

The Rays clinched their third division title in franchise history with Wednesday's 8-5 win over the Mets at Citi Field. The AL East crown was the first for Tampa Bay since its 96-win 2010 campaign. The team also won it in 2008, a season in which the Rays advanced to the World Series against the Phillies But lost in five games. Those Philadelphia Phillies come to Tropicana Field for a three-game weekend series. The Phillies were 27-25 after taking the first three of a four-game home series against the Blue Jays but a 6-3 Sunday loss stretched into a four-game slide when the Phils lost the first three of a four-game series at last-place Washington. Philly did salvage the final game of that series but the team is 28-29 and may have to win all three games here vs the Rays, a team looking to lock down the AL's best record.

The Phillies send Vince Velasquez (1-1, 5.46 ERA) to the mound to face the Rays' (2-2, 4.64 ERA). The Phillies are hoping to see a repeat performance from Velasquez, who allowed just one run over six innings in Saturday's 3-1 win over Toronto. However, I think I'll file that one under "wishful thinking!" Entering that contest, Velasquez was still searching for his first win of 2020, in his EIGHTH start of the season. He owned a 6.46 ERA, 1.69 WHIP and .292 BAA over his first seven starts of 2020. Fact was, the Phillies had gone 0-7 in his 2020 starts. Where Saturday's effort came from, I don't know!

Morton went 14-7 (2017) and 15-3 (2018) for Houston and then 16-6 for Tampa Bay last season, after signing as a free agent. He has NOT pitched well in eight starts here in 2020 (1.36 WHIP and BAA to go along with his 4.64 ERA) but he seems to be getting back in form, as this his fifth start since returning from the injured list (3.86 ERA and 17-5 KW ratio in four starts). The Phillies 'shot themselves in the foot' in Washington and the Rays are zeroed in on claiming the AL's No. 1 seed. Velasquez will NOT get in their way.

Good luck...Larry

Reds vs Twins
-140 at 5Dimes
Play Type: Top Premium

My 9* play is on the Min Twins at 8:10 ET.

The Cincinnati Reds were just in 2019 but 75-87 (16 games out of first in the NL Central) but they enter Friday having won NINE of 11. At 28-28, Cincy is in a dogfight for both second place in the National League Central and/or a wild-card berth. Had the season ended after their 6-1 victory over visiting Milwaukee on Wednesday night, the Reds would have been the No. 8 seed heading to Los Angeles to open their best-of-three wild-card series with the Dodgers on Wednesday.

The Minnesota Twins won the AL Central title in 2019 with a 101-61 record, the franchise's first 100-win season since the 1965 season (lost a seven-game World Series to the Dodgers and Sandy Koufax). The Twins have been a little streaky in 2020 but clinched a playoff berth for the second year in a row along with securing the team's third postseason appearance in the last four years with an 8-1 Saturday win at the Cubs. 35-22 Minnesota moved a half-game ahead of the Chicago White Sox for first place in the AL Central with its fourth straight win, 7-6, over visiting Detroit on Wednesday night. While the Twins had an off day yesterday, their advantage stretched to a full game after Chicago lost at Cleveland on Thursday.

Taking the mound tonight will be Cincy's Tyler Mahle (2-2, 3.57 ERA), while Minnesota counters with Jose Berrios (5-3, 3.72 ERA). Mahle was AWFUL in 2019, going 2-10 with a 5.14 ERA, 1.31 WHIP and .266 BAA. He's been MUCH better in 2020's nine appearances (eight starts). His ERA is down to 3.57, his WHIP to 1.10 and his BAA is down 75 points to .191. Mahle is 2-1 with a 3.10 ERA in his last five starts (Reds are 4-1).

Berrios went 14-8 in 2019, matching his career-high win total (was also 14-8 in 2017), en route to earning his second straight All-Star berth while reaching 200 innings for the first time in his four-year career. However, his 2020 season has been up-and-down. However, he is 3-0 with a 2.05 ERA in four September starts (team is 3-1) with 22 strikeouts and six walks in 22 innings.

The "clincher" is the fact that Minnesota owns a major league best 23-5 home record and Berrios' five home starts, he owns a 2.67 ERA and .168 BAA. What's more, the Twins are looking to secure a top-four seed so they can open their AL wild-card series Tuesday at Target Field. Twins win! Twins win!

Good luck...Larry

#Mets vs #Nationals
-139 at 1BetVegas
Play Type: Top Premium

My 9* play is on the Was Nats at 6:05 ET.

The New York Mets won the first contest of their four-game series with the Nats last night, 3-2. Fact is, THREE more wins by the Mets won't guarantee a playoff spot for New York but one more victory by the Mets will ensure the 23-34 Nationals finish alone in last place one season after winning the World Series. Only one other reigning World Series champion this century, the 2013 Boston Red Sox, has finished last in its division.

Taking the mound for tonight's contest are New York's Rick Porcello (1-6, 5.46 ERA) and Washington's Max Scherzer (4-4, 3.67 ERA) two former teammates and former Cy Young Award winners. Porcello sure hasn't looked like a Cy Young winner in 2020 with his 5.46 ERA, 1.43 WHIP and .292 BAA. No one should be surprised that the Mets have lost NINE of Porcello's 11 starts this season. Scherzer helped lead the Nats to their first-ever World Series title in 2019 but just like his team, his 2020 season has been an abject failure. If Scherzer doesn't win here, his run of 10 consecutive winning seasons will come to an end.

This marks the third meeting of the season between Porcello, the 2016 AL Cy Young Award winner, and Scherzer, who won the AL Cy Young while pitching with Porcello on the Detroit Tigers in 2013 and again in the NL in 2016 and 2017. Back on Aug 5, Scherzer exited because of the leg issue after laboring through just one inning, as Rick Porcello collected his 150th career win in the New York Mets' 3-1 victory over Washington. However, just six days later (Aug 11), Scherzer showed no signs of his Aug 5 issues, allowing just six hits and one run if a 2-1 Nats win.

Porcello is 3-1 with a 2.67 ERA in four career starts against the Nationals, while Scherzer is 11-5 with a 2.63 ERA in 23 games (22 starts) against the Mets, whom he no-hit on Oct 3, 2015. I'm taking Scherzer is this "rubber game" between the two former teammates.

Good luck...Larry

Tulane vs Southern Miss
OVER 54½ -108
Play Type: Top Premium

My 10* Total of the Month is on Tulane/Southern Miss Over at 2:30 ET.

Willie Fritz arrived in New Orleans to take over at Tulane for the 2016 season. The Green Wave would go 4-8 and 5-7 in his first two seasons but they would then go 6-6 and 6-6 in 2018 and 2019's regular season, capping each one off with a bowl win. It marks the first time Tulane has posted back-to-back winning seasons in 20 years. QB Justin McMillan could be erratic but he passed for 2,444 yards (17 TDs / 10 INTs) and was the team's leading rusher with 745 yards (4.4 YPC / 12 TDs). The bottom line is this, he led Tulane to 33.1 PPG on 449.3 YPG, as both totals rank third-best in school history for a single season. New QB Keon Howard is off to a poor start, completing just 43.6% for 299 yards without a TD and one INT in Tulane's 1-1 start. The Good news on offense has been redshirt freshman Tyler Spears running for 224 yards on 7.7 YPC. Tulane's first game saw them win 27-24 at South Alabama but then lose last Saturday at home to Navy. Tulane led that game 24-0 at the half, before Navy scored the game's final 27 points with the game-winning 33 -yard FG coming at 0:00!

Southern Miss opened its season at home back on Sep 3 against South Alabama and the Golden Eagles lost 32-21 as almost two-TD favorites. It was no fluke, as the Jaguars ran up 526 years (363 passing / 163 rushing), as South Alabama snapped a 15-game road losing streak (last won 19-8 at Troy back on 10/11/17). Jay Hopson began his fifth season in Hattiesburg and he had produced a winning season in each of his first four, three times getting Southern Miss to a bowl game (team was 6-5 in 2018 and fell short of bowl-eligibility due to a canceled game with App St due to a hurricane). However, he resigned following the South Alabama loss. Interim head coach Scotty Walden was previously co-OC and is now the youngest head coach in the FBS at 30 years old.

The Golden Eagles had seemingly bounced back with strong effort last week at home vs La Tech, as they led 27-10 towards the end of the third quarter. However, La Tech drove 74 yards in 17 plays to score the winning TD with 14 seconds to go, stealing a 31-30 win. QB Jack Abraham has been very good, completing 71.9 percent of his passes for 578 yards with three TDs and just one INT. However, the running game is non-existent, averaging 112.0 YPG on 3.3 YPC. The Southern Miss defense has allowed 31.5 PPG on YPG 453.5 YPG.

These two schools met in last season's Armed Forces Bowl, with Tulane winning 30-13. Sure, Southern Miss is playing with revenge but it' hard to trust this year's team at the moment. Then again, Tulane clearly needs to bounce-back from its disastrous second-half collapse against Navy. The Southern Miss defense is clearly vulnerable and Tulane QB Howard is a Southern Miss transfer, who HAS to be looking forward to playing against his former team. As noted above, Southern Miss QB Abraham has looked sharp and I'm expecting a high-scoring game. It's Goin' Over!

Good luck...Larry

Iowa State vs TCU
Iowa State
-2½ -107 at pinnacle
Play Type: Top Premium

My CFB 10* Big 12 Game of the Year is on Iowa St at 1:30 ET.

Toledo made Matt Campbell its permanent head coach at the end of 2011, making him the youngest head coach in the FBS at 32-years-old. He coached four full seasons at Toledo (2012–201), going 35–15. The 2015 team peaked at No. 20 in the AP Poll. He left Toledo before its bowl game in 2015 and took the Iowa St job. His first team went 3-9 but the last three seasons (2017-19) he's taken the Cyclones to three straight bowl games. Iowa St was ranked 23rd in the AP's preseason poll but lost its season-opener on Sep 12, 31-14 to ULL at home, as almost a two-TD favorite. It marked ULL's first-ever win over a top-25 opponent on the road (had been 0-26 against ranked foes away from home). The school's only other win over a top-25 team was in 1996 at home against Texas A&M. The Cyclones have not played since and now play at TCU on Saturday in their Big 12 opener.

This contest is not just TCU's conference opener but it's the Horned Frogs' FIRST game of 2020. TCU head coach Gary Patterson took over at TCU when Dennis Franchione left to take the Alabama job (that' didn't go well but it's a story for another day) and in his 19 full seasons, he's led TCU to 15 winning seasons and 16 bowls (10-6). TCU's 'glory years' were 2008-11, when the school went 45-5 over four seasons. TCU finished 7th, 6th, 2nd and 14th in the final AP rankings during that stretch (2010 team went 13-0, including a 21-18 Rose Bowl win over Wisconsin). However, TCU enters 2020 off a 7-6 record in 2018 and a 5-7 record in 2019. TCU has just nine games on its current schedule, so it's almost a sure thing that the Horned Frogs will fail to reach eight wins for a third straight year. That hasn't happened since the 1998 team went 8-4 to end a drought of 14 seasons the school failed to reach eight wins (OK, maybe the team gets a 'pass' this year, due to COVID-19).

ISU's Brock Purdy has already set 21 school records in just two seasons at QB. He fought injuries all season but still led the Big 12 in passing (306.3 YPG), while throwing 27 TDs and just nine INTs. Just five starters return on offense but a key returnee is Breece Hall, who averaged 101.6 YPG on the ground with nine TDs in his eight starts as a freshman. ISU may have the best (deepest?) group of TEs in CFB, as the trio of Kolar, Allen and Chase accounted for 75 catches and 10 TDs. The defense returns NINE starters and don't be fooled by that loss to ULL. The Ragin' Cajuns scored on an 85 KO return and an 83-yard punt return plus added a 78-yard TD pass that accounted for 29% of its 276 total yards.

We haven't seen TCU play yet but we know that the offense returns only THREE starters, losing four of five OL. QB Max Duggan started the final 10 games for TCU last season but finished with modest totals of 2,007 passing yards and 15 TDs. The defense was first in the Big 12 in yards allowed (336.9 YPG) and 4th in points allowed (26.4 PPG) but again, only FOUR full-time starters are back.

With ISU's recent surge and TCU's recent demise, the Cyclones have won TWO of the last three meetings (2017-19), including a 49-24 romp in Ames last season, when they ran up 436 yards on a much better defense than TCU will field here in 2020. Purdy had an 'ugly' effort vs ULL (16 of 35 for 145 yards with no TDs and one INT) but I feel strongly he'll bounce back here. What's more, TCU's starting QB Max Duggan has been battling a heart condition that led to him having a procedure back in mid-August to correct it. He was cleared to play on Monday but who knows? His likely replacement would be sophomore Matthew Downing, who has not taken a snap since 2018 and has 10 career pass attempts. ISU is not often a road favorite but the last three seasons under Campbell, the Cyclones are 5-2 ATS in that role. HUGE play on Iowa St.

Good luck...Larry

Louisville vs Pittsburgh
+3 -110 at YouWager
Play Type: Top Premium

 My 9* Eye-Opener is on Louisville at 12 noon ET.

The only game played between ranked opponents prior to this Saturday (Sep 26) was last Saturday's 37-24 win by No. 17 Mia-Fl over No. 18 Louisville. There are three top-25 matchups on Sep 26, including No. 21 Pitt hosting No. 24 Louisville. The Panthers (2-0, 1-0 ACC) get their third straight home game to open the season, after wins over Austin Peay (55-0) and Syracuse (21-10). The Cardinals (1-1, 0-1 ACC) hope to 'right the ship' after a 47-34 loss at home to Miami. This marks Louisville's first road game of 2020.

Louisville had to replace Heisman-winner Lamar Jackson after the 2018 season (he won the Heisman in 2017) and the Cardinals went from 8-5 to 2-10. However, Scott Satterfield came to the rescue for the start of the 2019 season. He had led Appalachian St to four straight bowl bids from 2015-18, going 40-11 (.784), overall. Satterfield restored some glory to the program in 2019, as Louisville had six-game improvement by going 8-5 (best turnaround by a Power-5 school), including a 38-28 bowl win over Miss St. The Cardinal were solid in their season-opening 35-21 win. Louisville allowed three TDs in that contest but the Hilltoppers were held to just 12 FDs and only 248 total yards! Western Ky's first two TDs came on 'drives' of ONE and FOUR yards, following a dropped snap by the punter and a blocked punt. The third score came on a 37-yard run against backups late in the fourth quarter. However, the Louisville D was not up to the challenge vs Miami, which rolled up 4763 yards. That said, the Louisville offense put up 30-plus points for the second straight game, with 516 yards (and 29 FDs) against a strong Miami defense. QB Malik Cunningham has thrown for 650 yards with six TDs and just two INTs, while the running game has averaged 176.5 YPG (Hawkins has 235 yards on 5.1 YPC). Outstanding WR Tutu Atwell (70 catches / 18.2 YPC / 12 TDs in 2019) had a team-high seven catches for 78 yards vs Western Ky and then added eight receptions for 114 yards with two TDs vs Miami.

Pitt  head coach Pat Narduzzi is in his sixth season and has led the school to a modest 38-29 record (includes TY's two wins. He's taken Pitt to a bowl in four of his first five seasons but Pitt has lost THREE of the four). Senior QB Kenny Pickett is in his third year as the starter but he's throw for only 492 yards with three TDs and one INT in the team's 2-0 start. he gets little help from his running game, which averages 137.0 YPG on 3.5 YPC. The Panthers defense has shined through two wins, allowing 154.0 YPG (third-best in the nation), including only 26 rushing yards per game, giving them the top-ranked rushing defense in the nation.

That said, Pitt's first two opponents have been FCS Austin Peay and Syracuse, which has scored a total of just 16 points in opening 0-2.Louisville's offense has great balance (see above) and is averaging 32.5 PPG on 501.5 PPG to open its season. I'm a big fan of Satterfield and the Panthers are a poor 8-14-1 (40%) ATS as a home favorite under Narduzzi. In QB Cunningham, RB Hawkins and WR Atwell, Louisville owns the three-best offensive players in the game. Pitt last started a season 3-0 back in 2014 and I don't the Panthers open 3-0 this season. I'm calling for an OUTRIGHT Louisville win but YES, I'll take the points.

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."
