Nover’s View: Red Sox-Blue Jays Free Friday Play

On June 30, 2023, in Free Picks, MLB, by Stephen

Jose Berrios was once good. Then he got bad. Now he’s good again especially when he’s pitching in Toronto where he’s 4-1 with a 2.48 ERA this season. The Blue Jays have won 87.5 percent of Berrios’ home starts since 2021 going 21-3.  I like Berrios and Toronto to beat the reeling Red Sox.  Boston […]

Nover’s View: Padres-Pirates Free Wednesday Play

On June 28, 2023, in Free Picks, MLB, by Stephen

Padres at Pirates Under 8 This total is too high in a pitching matchup of Blake Snell versus Mitch Keller. Snell has shown his former Cy Young Award winning ability during his last five starts with a 0.29 ERA. The Pirates broke through for nine runs against the Padres and their overmatched emergency fill-in starter, […]

Nover’s View: Royals-Rays Free Saturday Play

On June 24, 2023, in Free Picks, MLB, by Stephen

Rays minus 1 1/2 runs minus $1.25 (run line) hosting Royals I’m not going to lay nearly $3.00 to back the Rays at home against the Royals. But I want Tampa Bay involvement with Jordan Lyles on the hill for Kansas City.  So it’s laying 1 1/2 runs on the run line.  Tampa Bay has […]

Nover’s View: A’s-Blue Jays Free Friday Play

On June 23, 2023, in Free Picks, MLB, by Stephen

A’s plus 1 1/2 runs plus $1.30 (run line) at Blue Jays  You have to go back to the 2003 Tigers to find a team with a worse record after 77 games than the A’s. Oakland is 19-58 and has lost eight in a row. So why the heck get involved with them?  Value and […]

Nover’s View: Mystics at Sky Free Thursday Play

On June 22, 2023, in Free Picks, WNBA, by Stephen

Sky plus 3 hosting Mystics Chicago not only has short revenge for a 77-69 road loss to Washington this past Sunday, but also double revenge. The Mystics nipped Chicago, 71-69, on May 29 at Chicago. Washington i s 7-4. I find that record deceiving, though. The Mystics rank last in scoring and field goal percentage. […]

Nover’s View: Diamondbacks-Brewers Free Wednesday Play

On June 21, 2023, in Free Picks, MLB, by Stephen

Diamondbacks at Brewers Under 8 1/2 (Early Start)  I don’t see these teams reaching nine runs in this early start get-away game with a pitching matchup of Zac Gallen versus Julio Teheran. Gallen has cemented his status as one of the top pitchers in the National League. He’s 8-2 with a 2.96 ERA. Gallen has a […]
