92-83 on MLB last season and went up 34.31 units

48-41 on MLB this season up 5.71 units

6-2 on playoffs up 11.51 units

Cardinals at +113 for 7 units. Sending it. Scared Money Don’t Make Money. I didn’t have a strong feeling on the first two games in this series, so I stayed away. The gut has made a decision on this one though. Strasburg gave up some homers to the Dodgers in his last start. The Cardinals have struggled to hit, but Jack Flaherty will keep the game close on the mound for St. Louis. Marcell Ozuna is 14-44 with 3 homers against Strasburg all-time. Ozuna will get his first hit in the series tonight. Flaherty didn’t give up an earned run in his only other meeting with the Nationals. Cardinals seem to do their best work with their backs against the wall (see Games 4 and 5 of the last series). They only lost the first two games of this series 2-0 and 3-1. It is not like they were getting blown out. St. Louis gets one back tonight against Strasburg.

Monday Night Football – Lions at Packers

69-58-5 on the NFL last season (2018/19) up 26.36 units

19-27 on the NFL this season down 12.75 units

Lions +4 for 6 units. Detroit are coming off of a BYE. Don’t like betting against Rodgers, but I like it tonight. Davante Adams is out. Quandre Diggs and Slay should contain Green Bay’s available wideouts. Detroit’s defense is the least penalized in the league by a mile. Rodgers loves getting penalties on the defense, so that will be an interesting battle. The Lions have a lot of options on offense. Danny Amendola is back and he may do nothing, or have two touchdowns. Who Knows? The Packers struggled against an Eagles team that the Lions beat. Lions have had time to prepare for the Packers. I like this spot.

Aaron Rodgers Longest Completion over 36.5 yards at -120 for 1 unit. Rodgers has less than 250 passing yards in 4 games this season. He is going to have to pass over that mark if he wants to beat the Lions. I could see a hail mary or broken play hitting this prop bet.

Euro Action – Portugal at Ukraine

92-78-9 on Soccer in 2018 up 8.17 units

53-41-10 on Soccer in 2019 up 3.04 units

Portugal/Ukraine over 2 at -140 for 3 units. Ukraine hasn’t allowed a goal in over 400 minutes in this competition. That changes today.

Portugal at +115 for 3 units. Ukraine will secure advancement with a draw. Portugal have won their past 3 games by 9 a combined 9 goals. Andriy Yarmolenko will be the main attacking option for Ukraine. William Carvalho is injured in the midfield for Portugal, but I still like Ronaldo and crew to the get the job done.

Tennis – Tsonga and Rublev

91-44-6 on tennis in 2018 up 42.63 units

45-53 on tennis in 2019 down 47.44 units

Tsonga at -310 for 2 units. Tsonga is 1-0 against Sonego in their careers. Tsonga won here in Antwerp in 2017. He has two titles on this surface this calendar year. Sonego has lost his past 3 matches.

Rublev at -250 for 3 units. Bublik retired from his last match. Rublev is the more talented player and will look to even the H2H in Moscow. Rublev lost Zverev in his last match. Zverev was painting lines in that one. Bublik will not be able to match that level.
