Giants-Braves Free Tuesday Play

On May 31, 2016, in Free Picks, MLB, by Stephen

Braves plus $1.27 hosting Giants I’m not nominating the Braves to be a sudden playoff contender. I fully realize they are one of the worst teams in baseball. Adonis Garcia is their current clean-up hitter. That says enough about their 29th-ranked offense. But a correction is due. The Braves’ pitching is better than a 15-35 […]

Beware of Steven Wright today

On May 30, 2016, in MLB, by Stephen

A word to the wise. Careful if you’re going to back the Boston Red Sox and Steven Wright today against the Orioles in Baltimore. Nothing against Wright. Actually, I like the guy I lot. He has a 2.62 ERA and has turned in quality outings in nine of his 10 starts this season. Unfortunately, I […]

Stephen Nover Free Sunday Play

On May 29, 2016, in Free Picks, MLB, by Stephen

Yankees minus $1.05 at Rays You can count on one hand how many pitchers throw harder than Nathan Eovaldi. He’s never been a consistent winner, though. However, that is changing now that he’s mixing his velocity becoming more pitcher than thrower while improving his splitter pitch. Eovaldi also is aided mentally knowing he doesn’t have […]

Stephen Nover Free Wednesday Play

On May 25, 2016, in Free Picks, MLB, by Stephen

Marlins plus $1.55 at Rays I find this to be an excellent spot to take a nice price in a game that should be very close. The Marlins have a better record than Tampa Bay. The Marlins also are 9-3 the past 12 times when taking on a below .500 opponent. This isn’t a good […]

My No. 1 Fantasy FB Running Back

On May 21, 2016, in NFL, by Stephen

I know, I know. We’re still in May, but I can’t help starting to make my preliminary fantasy football rankings. Care to guess who my No. 1 running back is? Here’s a hint: His name isn’t Adrian Peterson. Here’s another hint: He’s never carried the ball in the NFL. Yep, I’m going with Ezekiel Elliott, […]

Most Underrated Pitcher

On May 20, 2016, in MLB, by Stephen

There are only four pitchers who have an unbeaten record this season when having at least five victories. The first three are somewhat easy to name – Chris Sale, Jake Arrieta and Stephen Strasburg. The fourth one is my candidate for most underrated, under-the-radar starter: Cleveland’s Josh Tomlin. Tomlin is 6-0 this season. The Indians […]
