Sports Plays Of The Day 10-25

Sports Plays

After going 5-5 yesterday keeping my figure at minus 700, it was a struggle to find games today. The fact that I will have 10 Sports Plays today might be a bad sign. This is a very tough Sunday on NFL action and the World Series took a turn last night which could spell disaster for one of the teams.

MLB

Rays

Last night’s crazy finish shifted the momentum to the Rays. But as the old saying goes in baseball the momentum can change on the next game’s starting pitchers. Clayton Kershaw is on the mound today for perhaps his biggest start as a Dodger. But I like the Rays and the under of 8.

NFL

It is extremely debatable if the Jets will win a game this season. If they do it won’t be today. Sam Darnold is coming back from an injury and the Bills have lost two straight. Take the Bills laying the 10 at MetLife Stadium.

The Raiders are having issues with their offensive line. The whole starting 5 had covid issues this week and a few might not play today. I like the Bucs on the road laying the 4.

The Jaguars could be selling off more players by the trade deadline and the morale has to be low in Jacksonville. The Chargers seem to blow leads in every game but Justin Herbert has established himself as the future at QB at least for now. I know the line is high at 9 but I like the Bolts at home.

Had Joe Mixon been playing today I probably don’t take this game but I like the Browns to win this game laying the 3.5

Dallas does not play defense and I think they score some points today. Couple that with a low over of 44.5 I like the over in this game.

I see lots of points in this game. The over is 54.5 and these teams are going to go over the 60 point mark. Take the over.

Atlanta plays no defense. The Lions offense is better now with D’Andre Swift now at RB 1. I like the Lions team over of 27.

This is another team over. I like the 49ers to score over 21. We are talking about 3 TD’s and one FG. I know they are banged up but 21 is not a high total. Take the Niners team over.

Sports Plays Of The Day 10-24

Sports Plays Of The Day

After going 5-6 this past Sunday which was highlighted by an 0-3 day in baseball I took a break and I am back today with 10 Sports Plays today with 9 of them being College Football. My figure sits at -700 for the year so I am looking for a big weekend in football.

MLB

Every game has gone over in this series. Last night’s game went over with a solo HR with two outs in the last inning which will no doubt cost me to lose my 8-team three-day parlay. But that’s life. I like the over today of 8.

NCAA Football

Coastal Carolina in ranked amazingly. They have been a growing program that is taking advantage of playing in a lesser conference. Georgia Southers in a quality program but I like Coastal Carolins to cover the 5.5 at home.

Florida State despite some bad losses is improving. Their offense will only get better as Mike Norville instills his offense. I like the team over for FSU at 28

Mercer is just horrible. Lay the 30.5 with Army

Troy is another up and coming lower-tier program. I like the Trojans at home laying the 2.5 against Georgia State.

Texas plays no defense. Let’s face it. The entire Big 12 conference has no clue what defense is. The over is reasonable at 61.5. Take the over.

Welcome back to the Mountain West Conference. I am not ready to bet in the winners but I like the team over of 23 for Nevada.

BYU has been on fire so their point spreads are starting to get very high. I like the BYU team over of 44.5.

The American Athletic Conference has also of track meet games. You know those games where the final score is often in the high 70’s. The Bearcats do play some sort of defense so the over is a little low at 56.5. I like the over in this game.

UTSA is not a bad team. LA Tech is better. Take LA Tech on the road laying the 2.5.

Sports Plays Of The Day 10-18

Sports Plays Of The Day 10-18

Yesterday was a tale of two cities. I went a whopping 7-1 in college football but 0-4 in my baseball picks. But I did win my series prediction so I went 7-5 on the day plus the series win making my day a plus 300. Overall I am sitting at -600 going into a brutal day of NFL action plus another game 7. I picked the Braves to win the series but the Dodgers have the momentum.

So Today’s sports plays of the day will feature 8 NFL picks and three MLB picks when you factor in the series pick.

MLB

The Dodgers have won the last two games but I picked the Braves to win the series so I will double down on that pick. I also like the over at 8.

NFL

I like Minnesota at home today. I just think the Vikings are better than their record. Dalvin Cook is out and that is an issue but the Falcons are in disarray. Lay the 4 on the Vikings.

Both the Steelers and Browns are on four-game winning streaks but I think Pittsburgh is the better team. Lay the 3.5 on the Burgh.

The Texans can score points and score them quickly. I know the Titans like to run the ball behind Derrick Henry. Take the over of 53 today.

This is a must-win game for the Niners today. It’s at home and they are getting points. This could be a season-saving win for the struggling Niners. Take the 3 with the 49ers.

This could be an old fashioned shootout under the Tampa Bay Sun. I like the over of 55.

The Patriots return to the field and handle the Broncos in Foxboro. Lay the 7.5 on the pats.

The Dolphins don’t like their former head coach Adam Gase. To be fair I am not even sure if Gase’s current team the Jets like him too. The Dolphins are a better team so lay the 8.5 with the Dolphins.

This is my only team over of the day and it’s on the Eagles at 17.5

Sports Plays Of The Day 10-13

Sports Plays Of The Day 10-13

After going 2-1 yesterday my figure now sits at -500. I have five sports plays of the day. Four in MLB and one in the NFL.

MLB

Dodgers pitcher Clayton Kershaw was scratched and replaced with Tony Gonsolin. The Dodgers are already down 1-0 in the series and this is a must-win game. I am taking the braves behind Ian Anderson and also the over of 8.5.

Rays

The Rays lead the series 2-0 so the Astros really need to win this game. I am expecting a lot of runs tonight. So I am taking the Astros and the over of 8.5.

NFL

In a rare Tuesday night game, we have two teams that are still undefeated. The Bills are 4-0 and the Titans are 3-0. But I Like the under of 51.5.

Sports Plays Of The Day 10-9

Sports Plays of the Day

I was absolutely brutal yesterday going 2-8 to drop my figure to minus -1100. But when I add in that I went 2-1 in my MLB Divisional Series picks my figure improves to -1000. Either way, it’s still pretty bad. I need a really big weekend that has to start tonight. There are two Game Five’s on the board tonight plus one college football game.

MLB

Gerrit Cole was brought into New York to pitch these types of games for the Yankees. Cole signed the richest contract ever for a pitcher. But the Tampa Bay Rays are a tough team to beat. Since I picked the Rays to win the series I am all in with the Rays and the over of 7.5.

Take the Rays

NBA

The Los Angeles Lakers leads the NBA Finals three games to one over the Miami Heat. I think the series ends tonight so I am taking the Lakers -7 and the over of 215.

NCAA FOOTBALL

Both teams are 1-2 but I am going to take Louisville on the road -5.

Sports Plays Of The Day

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.
