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

On May 17, 2024, in Free Picks, MLB, by Stephen

Rays plus $1.46 at Blue Jays Tampa Bay finally has climbed above .500 this season by virtue of winning nine of its last 13 games. The Rays shouldn’t be this big of an underdog – if an underdog at all – to the disappointing 19-23 Blue Jays and Chris Bassitt. Bassitt is 3-5 with a […]

Nover’s View: Pirates-Brewers Free Tuesday Play

On May 14, 2024, in Free Picks, MLB, by Stephen

Pirates plus $1.42 at Brewers  The Brewers are 2-5 in the seven starts Joe Ross has made this season. The Brewers should not be such a heavy favorite with Ross going against Quinn Priester and the Pirates today. Ross has a 4.75 ERA. Two Tommy John surgeries have robbed him of his earlier potential that he […]

Nover’s View: Blue Jays-Phillies Free Wednesday Play

On May 8, 2024, in Free Picks, MLB, by Stephen

Phillies minus $1.48 hosting Blue Jays No need to overthink this one. Just lay it.  The Phillies are 18-3 in their last 21 games. They’ve won 11 consecutive home games after burying the Blue Jays, 10-1, on Tuesday. Toronto is 1-5 in its last six games and four games below .500 on the season.  Philadelphia […]

Nover’s View: Guardians-Astros Free Wednesday Play

On May 1, 2024, in Free Picks, MLB, by Stephen

Guardians plus $1.50 at Astros I don’t get the love for Houston here. The 10-19 Astros have been one of the biggest underachievers in baseball. The Guardians, by contrast, are tied for the second-best record in the majors at 19-10.  Houston starter Justin Verlander is royalty. But this is just his third start of the […]

Nover’s View: White Sox-Royals Free Thursday Play

On April 4, 2024, in Free Picks, MLB, by Stephen

White Sox plus $1.53 at Royals Once upon a time Michael Soroka was a highly promising pitcher going 13-4 with a 2.68 ERA for the Braves. That was in 2019. Since then Soroka has dealt with major injuries throwing fewer than 50 innings. The White Sox took a shot on him this season. Soroka got […]

Nover’s View: Yankees-Blue Jays Free Wednesday Play

On September 27, 2023, in Free Picks, MLB, by Stephen

Yankees plus $1.07 at Blue Jays  Never mind that the Yankees aren’t going to make the playoffs. Maybe they play better now that the pressure is off. They beat Kevin Gausman and the Blue Jays on Tuesday and they certainly can defeat Toronto again today with Gerrit Cole on the mound.  Cole gets one final […]
