MLB August 30th

63-61 on the MLB up 4.07 units

Lost on MLB last time out. Losing isn’t fun. I am going to quit doing that. Back on the winning horse today.

Diamondbacks at +123 for 3 units. Rich Hill pitched a great game last time out, but it was against the helpless Padres. The Dodgers are hot and the Diamondbacks are not. I still think the Dbacks at plus money is too good to pass up here. Robbie Ray is due for a victory, he has had a no-decision in his last 6 starts. Ray has won 6 times against the Dodgers which is his personal best against any team.

Soccer August 30th

16-11-2 on Soccer since World Cup up 11.14 units

Besiktas at -170 for 3 units. Besiktas just has more talent on the field than Partizan Belgrade. Besiktas lost 3-2 to Antalyaspor last time out, but it was a game where Besiktas won the second half after a terrible first half. Ricardo Gomes has been scoring for fun for Partizan, but Medel, Pepe, Gonul, Quaresma, Arslan, and Ozyakup should have the experience needed to win this second leg for Besiktas.

Tennis August 30th – US Open

44-16-2 on tennis up 30.61 units

Went up 14.82 units on Wimbledon

4-2 and up 3.97 units on the US Open

Fognini at -215 for 5 units. John Millman had an easy first round draw and will have to step it up if he wants to beat Fognini. Consistency has always been a problem for Fognini, but he seems to have figured it out a little bit this year as he already has more wins than last season.

Schwartzman at -555 for 4 units. I love betting on Schwartzman because you know what you are going to get. He is going to force long rallies and tire out his opponent on most days. This line is most likely a little too high, but I will bite.

Kohlschreiber/Ebden over 38 for 2 units. I looked at -4 for Kohlschreiber for a while, but I think I am going to pull the trigger on the over. Both their first round matchups went over and I could see some 6-4 sets. Kohlschreiber is nothing if not consistent so I expect a tight match here.
