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 […]

Nover’s View: Guardians-Royals Free Monday Play

On September 18, 2023, in Free Picks, MLB, by Stephen

Guardians minus $1.16 at Royals At 48-102, the Royals have the second-worst record in baseball. A terrible pitching staff is a major factor why the Royals could finish with more than 106 losses, which would exceed the most defeats ever in a season for them. Kansas City has the third-highest ERA in the league and […]

Nover’s View: Cubs-Rockies Free Tuesday Play

On September 12, 2023, in Free Picks, MLB, by Stephen

Cubs minus 1 1/2 runs minus $1.25 (run line) at Rockies When it comes to ineptitude, the Rockies are bailed out by the A’s and Royals. But that doesn’t give Colorado a pass. The Rockies are heading for their first 100-loss season with a National League-worst 51-92 record. The 78-67 Cubs are three games out […]

Nover’s View: Brewers-Yankees Free Friday Play

On September 8, 2023, in Free Picks, MLB, by Stephen

Brewers even money at Yankees Neither Luis Severino nor the Yankees can be counted on. The Brewers have lost eight fewer games than the Yankees. So I’m going to take a ‘dog price with the better team. The Brewers are 37-34 on the road. They have a rested bullpen, unlike New York, having been idle Thursday. That’s […]

Nover’s View: Pirates-Cardinals Free Saturday Play

On September 2, 2023, in Free Picks, MLB, by Stephen

Pirates plus $1.36 at Cardinals It seems like the Pirates haven’t been good since Roberto Clemente was playing right field for them.  But the Cardinals are even worse than Pittsburgh this season. St. Louis is four games worse to be exact. The pitching matchup is Thomas Hath, in what shapes up as a bullpen game […]

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

On September 1, 2023, in Free Picks, MLB, by Stephen

Blue Jays at Rockies Under 12 1/2 minus $1.15 The Rockies are in full rebuild using lots of young players. Most of these youngsters, particularly centerfielder Brenton Doyle, have been much better defensively than on offense. The result is Colorado is averaging only 3.2 runs in its last seven games. That’s playing four of those […]
