Tennis August 27th – U.S. Open

40-14-2 on tennis up 26.64 units

Went up 14.82 units on Wimbledon, now let’s get this US Open betting started.

Kevin Anderson at -343 for 4 units. Anderson made me some money on Wimbledon so I am going to keep riding him. Ryan Harrison beat Anderson they last time they met and Anderson will want to get his revenge. Harrison is going to have to play his best tennis to win..

Juan Martin Del Potro -7 for 2 units. Donald Young is just not in the same class as Del Potro. Del Potro won his first and only grand slam here in 2009. Young has not been playing his best tennis this season and now gets one of the favorites to win the tournament. I think Del Potro will break Young enough times for this to cover.

 

Soccer August 27th

15-11-2 on the Soccer since World Cup up 6.14 units

Tottenham Hotspur +0 at +125 for 4 units. Manchester United and Jose Mourinho need a win today at home, but I do not think they get it. United is off to their worst start since 2014/2015. Brighton beat United 3-2 the last time out. Tottenham could get out to their best start in nearly a decade with a win today. Kane normally struggles against United, but I expect that to change today. He has 2 goals in 7 league games against Manchester. I just think Tottenham has been playing a lot better than United and that will show today.

MLB August 27th

62-57 on the MLB up 12.35 units

Rays keep winning and if Snell can keep pitching like he is, he will win the Cy Young. Goldschmidt hit a home run that is still flying somewhere. Severino and the Yankees got another win. The Yanks are now 6 games back of their rival Red Sox. Gausman got another win with the Braves. It is shaping up to be a fun end of the season with a month left.

Blue Jays at -130 for 2 units. Neither starting pitcher is great in this one and the Orioles just can’t buy a win. Kendrys Morales will tie a MLB record if he homers in this game because he will have a home run in 8 straight games. He will be tied with Ken Griffey Jr., Don Mattingly, and Dale Long. Griffey did it last in 1993. Cedric Mullins, the Orioles best player of late, is also out..

Cubs at -135 for 2 units. Syndergaard does not scare me too much and the Cubs are hot. It is that simple.

Rockies at -140 for 2 units. Odrisamer Despaigne has been pretty terrible in his two decisions and I expect that to continue. It is always tough for a longtime bullpen pitcher to start starting games. Jon Gray has been solid this season and the Rockies need a win to keep up with the Diamondbacks. Arenado is also silly hot right now, batting .333 in August.
