By Stephen Nover Indians minus $1.25 hosting A’s The A’s have won four in a row. But the pitching matchup, price and the way the Indians have started to swing the bats put me on Cleveland. A’s starter Chris Bassitt has a 1.93 ERA. He’s not nearly that good. The 30-year-old is due for a […]

By Stephen Nover Brewers minus $1.27 at Braves (Early Start) Something is amiss with Mike Foltynewicz, who has an 8.02 ERA and has surrendered eight homers in 21 1/3 innings.

By Stephen Nover Reds plus $1.65 at Mets  Maybe there is something wrong with his elbow or it’s just a case of getting mechanics straighten out, but Jacob deGrom hasn’t been pitching like he normally does. The Mets are 0-3 in deGrom’s last three starts. During this span, deGrom has given up 14 runs in […]

By Stephen Nover It was a little more than a year ago that one of my closest friends of the past 30 years died in a hiking accident. Dave Malinsky was more than a friend, though, he also was my sports handicapping mentor. Many may remember Dave from his Point Blank column and from his […]
