Sports Plays Of The Day 10-17

Sports Plays Of The Day

After going 0-1 on Thursday my figure dropped to -900. Today I have a whole slew of picks for today which include both baseball games. I have in total 12 sports plays of the day for October 17th.

MLB

This series has been interesting. As we head to Game 6 the Braves are looking to close out the Dodgers and head to the World Series. The Dodgers are looking to force a Game 7. Max Fried is pitching for the Braves and Walker Beuhler is pitching for the Dodgers. I took the Braves for the series so my pick for today is Atlanta and the over of 8.5.

We have a Game 7 tonight between the Astros and the Rays. I took the Rays to win the series but my pick tonight is the Astros. The Rays had a 3 -0 lead in this series but the Astros have come roaring back to win the next three. The Astros have the momentum and this will make it hard for the Rays to win. It always comes down to the starting pitchers but I do expect a lot of runs tonight. So I like the Astros and the over of 8.5.

NCAA FOOTBALL

This is my anti-Miami pick. We kept hearing that the U is back. Well, Clemson smacked them around last week in a game where the score was much closer than it should have been. Let’s see how Miami responds. I am taking Pitt plus the 12.5

I like South Alabama -4 to win a home game against Texas State.

 

The Black Knights of Army are4-1 and I like them to beat the UT-San Antonio Road Runners at 3-2. Even though Army is on the road lay the 8.5.

The UAB Blazers are 3-1 and I like them big today at home vs Western Kentucky laying the 12 points.

Lane Kiffin took Alabama to the brink. For that reason this could be a sucker’s bet but I am taking Ole Miss laying the 1.5 at Arkansas.

UCF is not as good as they have been in the last couple of years. Memphis lost their coach to Florida State. But I still am expecting a lot of points in this game today. Take the over of 75.5.

This is another curious game. Jimbo Fisher had a big win for A & M last week. After scoring a ton of points against LSU, Mike Leach’s boys have struggled in the last two games and only scored 2 points last week. I like A & M laying 5 points on the road.

LA Tech can score points in bunches. Even if Marshall can shut them down a little bit the OVer is low enough at 48.5 to still be a great play. I like the over in this game.

Sports Plays Of The Day 10-7

Sports Plays Of The Day 10-7

After going 3-3 yesterday my figure stayed at minus -700. There are four more baseball games today and I will pick every one of them plus the over/unders. Scoring has been up in this round and with the best of five series, a Game One loss makes Game Two a must-win. Here are my eight Sports Plays Of the Day for 10-7.

 

As of right now the Marlins are not pitching Sixto which does surprise me. The Braves bats can boom and their lineup is ridiculously strong up one through nine. The Braves won game one and it continues into game two. I like the Braves and the over of 8.5.

The Astros bats have come alive and are up two games to none. So this is a must-win for the A’s. Oakland desperately needs a big pitching performance today and I think they get one. I like the A’s and the under of 9. But I would not be surprised if the Astros close it out today.

It was a very curious decision by Boone and the Yankees using Garcia for one inning just to get the Rays to put in their all lefthanded lineup so the Yankees can counter with Happ in the second inning. It backfired horribly as Happ was rocked. The Yankees lineup is heating up specifically Giancarlo Stanton. The Yankees need to win just one more game to get to Cole on three days rest in Game Five. But I like the Rays today and the over on 9.

I picked the Padres to win this series in five games. But if the Dodgers win tonight this series could end in three. The Padres were a little sloppy and now turn to Zach Davies in hopes of getting a big effort. So I am picking the Padres and the over of 8.5 against Clayton Kershaw.

Sports Plays of the Day 10-6

Sports Plays of the Day 10-6

After going 3-2 yesterday my figure improved to -700. I am picking every baseball game today and the NBA finals Game 4. It’s time to get hot, Here are my Sports Plays of the Day for 10-6.

NBA Finals

Jimmy Buckets had the game of his life for the shorthanded Heat in Game 3. There was a lot of drama involving the Lakers and especially LeBron James following the game. The Lakers have responded great coming off of a loss during the playoffs thus far and today will be no different.

I like the Lakers -8 and the over 218.5

Since I picked the Braves in 4 games I am taking them in Game one.  I like the Braves big today.

The Astros had the bats working big time in Game 1. I see this continuing today with the Astros taking a 2-0 lead.

I picked the Rays in four and I am going to stick by that. Garcia has been good down the stretch but he is still just a rookie. But the Yankee bats are hot. I like Glasnow to even up the series.

Getting Mike Clevinger back is a huge boost for the Padres. I see this game being close with the Padres getting the early series lead.

Sports Plays Of The Day 10-5

Sports Plays Of The Day 10-5

After going 4-4-2 my figure stays at minus 800. It could have been worse as a couple of my wins and pushes went down to the wire. But today I will pick both football games and my series picks for all of the baseball as well as today’s games. It’s time to get some wins. So here are my Sports Plays Of Thr Day for 10-5.

NFL

 

Cam Newton is out with the Corona Virus so this game loses a lot of steam despite a seven-point opening line. With Cam playing I can at least see maybe Bill Belichick pulling a rabbit out of his hat. But I just can’t see it. Lay the 10.5 and take the over at 48.5.

The Falcons need a win badly. But if I was a Falcons fan I would be praying to lose out so I know Dan Quinn will definitely get fired. Lay the six points with the Packers

MLB

To me, this whole series comes down to Gerrit Cole. There are no off days so if this series goes five games will Cole pitch on three days rest and will he be effective. This series with no off days benefits the Rays so much more in a long series. I like the Rays in Four.

Tonight I like the Rays to win.

This will be a grudge match. I am curious to see how the A’s pitchers specifically Mike Fiers handles that Astros bats. The Astros bats struggled this season but so did a lot of other players. But I would be more concerned with the Astros pitching. The A’s bullpen is the strength of the team. My heart wants to see the Astros get to the ALCS just because of the drama it would create. But the A’s just might be too tough.  Take the Astros in five games.

As for tonight, I like the Astros to win game 1.

The Marlins are a great feel-good story but I just don’t think they have enough to beat the powerful Braves offense. I like the Braves in four games.

This could be the best series of the four if the Padres get some of their starting pitching back. The popular pick will be the Dodgers. I am going to pick the Padres in five.
