Vegas veteran Benjamin Eckstein, writer of America’s Line, brings three years of experience to create weekly??picks within his»Ecks & Bacon» column.
LAS VEGAS — Many of you’re too young to remember the singer Meat Loaf, however, the large man said two out of three ain’t bad. That’s exactly what we posted last week in this space, setting the three columns at 8-2. We are going to take 80%, babbeee!!
According to the Baseball Board, while the Tigers have come to be all the sportsbooks’ DARLINGS here in Vegas and around the world, do not think they are gonna have the ability to solve Jose Berrios at house at Minnesota. Bet the game last night at roughly -230 if Boyd was the listed starter for Detroit, however they have changed to VerHagen, and the line jumped to -320. However like the Twinkies, however, will scale the bet down.
And if you’re in the neighborhood, try the Cards. Why? Flaherty has started four matches since the beginning of August, permitting one TEENY-TINY earned run. Got the calculator, punched in a few numbers, and it spit out a 0.35 ERA. Yeah, you heard me,» ZERO stage THREE FIVE. And as my father said, whenever you see an ERA using a ZERO as the number, start the wallet!!!
STAND UP for some actual, live College Football action tomorrow. If you are a stats geek, you have likely seen this one. Florida is 27-1 in games that are opening the last 28 decades. TWENTY-SEVEN wins and only 1 loss. Quite remarkable, yeah. But while you program the Charleston Southerns of this Earth, there is a W ensured. The one loss came against Michigan back. This game is in Orlando, and it’s STILL a field whether it is nearer to Gainesville than Miami. Thinking that the Gators are gonna venture a win, however, using just one returning starter on the offensive line, provide the cover into the Hurricanes (+7 points) and first-year head coach Manny Diaz.
Looked at late night at Hawaii, and while we would love to jump onto a double-digit home puppy, the Rainbow Warriors, even the Pac-12 (‘Zona Wildcats) just may be too much for a middle-of-the-road Mountain West squad. Taking a hallway pass.
Anyone play with the ponies??? My guy Martin Mac has some words about the Travers Stakes in Saratoga.
It looks like we are going to have dry track to the Travers. Dropping a few love and cash on Code of Honor. He comes off a win At Belmont and has been working good top up to this race. So we are throwing $50 about the nose, $25 to place$25 to reveal.
