Angels plus $1.20 hosting Red Sox The last time Hector Santiago faced Boston was at Fenway Park on July 2. The Angels won, 21-2. Now the Angels are home, where they have won seven of the last eight times, and have Santiago on the mound. Yet they opened underdogs to the Red Sox and Drew […]

Nover’s View: Belichick in mid-season form

On July 29, 2016, in NFL, by Stephen

During his press conference today, Bill Belichick was asked “What happens if Jimmy Garoppolo plays better?” by a reporter trying to find out if Garoppolo could actually take Tom Brady’s job away when Brady returns from his suspension. This was the Belichick’s response courtesy of Pro Football Talk: “Look, I told you what’s going to […]

Brewers minus $1.30 hosting Diamondbacks Unlike other sports, motivation rarely counts in handicapping baseball. But once in a while it can factor.

It’s easy to forget that the Chargers won nine games in 2013 and 2014 before last year’s disaster when injuries, particularly a cluster injury problem in their offensive line, couldn’t be overcome. The Chargers have […]

Diamondbacks at Reds Over 9 1/2 On a hot, muggy, humid day at homer-friendly Great American Ball Park, I see double-digit runs being scored in this matchup. These are the two worst bullpens in the National League right now and the starting pitching matchup isn’t strong either with Zack Godley facing Brandon Finnegan. Godley is […]

Brewers plus $1.50 hosting Cubs Cubs versus Brewers. Mismatch, right? I say the perception doesn’t fit the reality in this game. The Brewers own a winning record at home. The Cubs are 1-6 in their last seven road games and have dropped seven of their last eight away matchups to teams with a winning home […]
