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 10-8

Sports Plays Of The Day 10-8

After going 5-3 yesterday my figure crept up to -500. There are five games on the board tonight and I will pick all of them. My Sports Plays of the Day for 10-8 includes 10 picks.

NFL

The Tampa Bay Buccaneers at 3-1 head into Chicago to take on the 3-1 Bears. The Bears have already had a quarterback change and won three games against bad teams. The Bucs look to be hitting their stride. I like the Bucs laying the 3.5 points on the road. I also like the Bucs team over at 24.

MLB

The Atlanta Braves lead the series 2-0. The Miami Marlins have a tough task at beating the Braves in three straight games. Sixto Sanchez is really good. I picked the Braves in 4 so I like the Marlins to extend the series and I like the under at 9.

The road team has won every game in this series which means nothing in a neutral site game. I picked the Houston Astros to win this series in five games. I didn’t expect the Astros to win the first two games. I am taking the Astros to win the series today over the Oakland Athletics and the under of 9.

This is the most intriguing game of the day. Gerrit Cole will almost certainly start in Game 5 if it gets that far. But can the New York Yankees win today behind Jordan Montgomery? This season has been tailor-made for the Tampa Bay Rays with their style of play. I picked the Rays in 4 because of the Cole factor. I like the Rays to close out the series today and I also like the over at 9.

Like the Marlins the San Diego Padres are also down 2-0. I picked the Padres to win in 5 games. So obviously I am picking the Padres all the way out. I do like Chris Paddack today but I am not so sure they get another game in this series. Last night was such a tough loss that I can see the Padres losing today. But I am taking the Padres and the under at 9.

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.

Major League Baseball Divisional Series Picks

I like the Braves in this series. The Cardinals have been so hot but I think the Braves are more talented.

The Dodgers should be on a mission to finally win the World Series.

The Twins finally get the monkey off their back and defeat the Yankees.

Take the Astros to beat the Rays.
