Nover’s View: Sparks-Liberty Free WNBA Thursday Play

On June 20, 2024, in Free Picks, WNBA, by Stephen

Liberty minus 14 1/2 hosting Sparks I see this as a kill spot for New York. Of course the oddsmaker sees it that way, too, because of the large point spread. But it’s more than just the 12-3 Liberty, with their superstar trio of Breanna Stewart, Sabrina Ionescu and Jonquel Jones, being one of the […]

Nover’s View: Storm-Aces Free Wednesday Play

On June 19, 2024, in Free Picks, WNBA, by Stephen

The two-time defending WNBA champion Aces are just 6-6 this season. They also haven’t had point guard Chelsea Gray for the entire season. That changes tonight as Gray, one of the dozen best players in the league, is set to make her season debut. Given that the Aces are home, finally will have Gray and […]

Nover’s View: Was Willie Mays the greatest center fielder of all-time?

Sunday, June 16 Padres minus $1.15 at Mets  The Mets are going for a three-game home sweep of the Padres. I don’t see them getting it in a pitching matchup of Dylan Cease vs Tylor Megill. The Mets have played worse at home while the Padres have been better on the road. New York is […]

Nover’s View: Dream-Fever Free Thursday WNBA Play

On June 13, 2024, in Free Picks, WNBA, by Stephen

Dream at Fever Over 162 Caitlin Clark has given Indiana an exciting identity and huge box office appeal. But Clark can’t do anything about the Fever’s lack of defense. Indiana has the worst defense in the WNBA giving up an average of 89.8 points a game. The Fever also rank at the bottom in defensive […]

Nover’s View: Orioles-Blue Jays Free Monday Play

On June 3, 2024, in Free Picks, MLB, by Stephen

Orioles minus $1.10 at Blue Jays It’s always tempting to get the 37-20 Orioles at this low of a price range. I’m giving in to temptation here backing Baltimore and Grayson Rodriguez against the below .500, underachieving Blue Jays. The lay price is short because Toronto is home and starting Kevin Gausman. I’d rather have […]
