Monday Free Pick: Phillies-Mets

On August 31, 2015, in Free Picks, MLB, by Stephen

Phillies plus 1 1/2 minus $1.20 (run line) at Mets So why get involved with the Phillies when they are playing the Mets? Bartolo Colon. That’s why. The overweight 42-year-old has a 4.65 ERA on the season, worked in relief two days ago for the first time in four years and the Mets’ bullpen carries […]

What to do about preseason

On August 30, 2015, in NFL, by Stephen

Look I get that football is a violent game and injuries are part of the deal. I just don’t want to see them occur in glorified scrimmages otherwise known as preseason games. As a long-time follower of the Green Bay Packers, I’m still retching over Jordy Nelson going down against the Steelers last week at […]

Reds plus $1.15 at Brewers Sometimes you can find the best value with bottom of the barrel teams. That’s the case here with the Reds and Brewers.

Philadelphia is 21-14 following the All-Star break and catch the Mets’ lone weak spot in their starting pitching rotation – Bartolo Colon. The 42-year-old Colon predictably is fading down the stretch after pitching well […]

After seeing one run scored in Monday’s Astros-Yankees game – where I liked the over – I need a stooge, Or, in the words of Cris Carter, a fall guy to take the rap for that horrible pick. In case you missed the story, the NFL just recently got around to taking down a video […]

Rockies-Braves Free Play (August 24)

On August 24, 2015, in Free Picks, by Stephen

Braves minus $1.20 hosting Rockies Atlanta is in rebuilding mode. But compared to the Rockies, the Braves are the ’27 Yankees. The Braves are eight games above .500 at Turner Field. The Rockies are 15 games under .500 on the road. The Rockies have lost 12 of their last 15 games. That gives the Rockies […]
