Slumping Astros host soaring Astros Wednesday in Interleague play.

Authored by Winning Major League Baseball Betting Analyst Bobby Wallace.

Baseball Expert Picks are winning at a remarkable rate and will continue through the 2018 World Series. The enigma for Colorado Rockie fans continues regarding their team in 2018. Not that anyone’s complaining, they began August with four consecutive losses followed by two wins, only to drop three straight, and now they’re riding a four-game winning streak after Tuesday’s 5-1 road win in Houston. Left-hander Tyler Anderson (6-4) with a 3.94 earned run average will try to complete the series sweep and get revenge on an 8-2 home loss vs. Houston last month. Houston Astros manager A. J. Hinch believed his team would be ready for Colorado after they were swept by divisional foe Seattle in their previous home series and now cling to a game lead over second-place Oakland in the standings. Hinch watched his team get off to a 1-0 lead Monday, but it was short lived after Nolan Arenado went deep giving Colorado a 2-1 lead and Trevor Story home run in the eighth inning sealed the game. Wednesday’s game time is 8:10 PM EST at Minute Maid Park in downtown Houston, Texas. Local Television Networks will be broadcasting. The Opening Betting Line has Colorado as a +190 road underdog. The betting odds total is seven runs for Wednesday’s contest.

 

A split with the reigning World Champions should be okay with Colorado manager Bud Black, no matter what happens Wednesday they’ll be in Atlanta Thursday for the start of a crucial four-game series against another first-place team. The Rockies have a 12-5 road record vs. American League opposition in 2018, and only Pittsburgh is better. Colorado is currently a game out of first place in the NL West but a more consistent effort each game will be needed for the next month, and a half from their twenty-third ranked pitching rotation. Although German Marquez did a masterful job Tuesday in what could be described as his best performance this season, they’ll need more just like it. The betting odds under has come in five of the Rockies last six-games which are an indication the rotation is coming rounding into form, but they over is 7-1 the previous eight times Tyler Anderson has been on the mound. Infielders Arenado and Story lead the Astros in the batter’s box, both came through in a big time way and have been clutch all season. Bovada.Lv list the Colorado Rockies at 18/1 to win the 2018 National League Championship Series.

The Houston Astros are 32-29 in front of their home crowd in contrast to their forty-one victories away from H-town which is second to Boston. Whatever the reason they’ll get to put the theory to test as they begin a nine-game road trip in Oakland on Thursday, August 16th, then it’s on to Seattle for three, before returning to Southern California for a three-game set against the dangerous Los Angeles Angels. Houston fans along with management are finding out first hand how essential the services of second baseman Jose Altuve is; he’s been out since July, 25th with a knee injury and expects to return later this month. Also, right fielder George Springer is on the 10-day disabled list with a sore thumb. Major League Baseball’s top-rated pitching staff will try to get back on track with Gerrit Cole and his Twelve victories taking the hill; however, he’s dropped his last three outings with all three staying under the total runs. Bovada.Lv, list the Houston Astros at 4/1 to win the 2018 MLB World Series.

Pirates take on Twins Tuesday in Interleague series.

Authored by Winning Major League Baseball Betting Analyst Bobby Wallace.

MLB Daily Predictions are winning at a remarkable rate and will continue through the 2018 World Series. After going 4-3 out West, the Pittsburgh Pirates resume play Tuesday night after using Monday for traveling. With a (61-58) record they’re eight games from the top spot in the NL Central and five in the race for a wildcard berth. Jameson Taillon who’s already beaten Minnesota once this season will take his (9-8) record to the pitcher’s mound tonight, the right-hander has won four of his last five starts, the most recent a complete game in a 10-2 road win over Colorado. The (54-63) Minnesota Twins are slowly fading in the standings after dropping five of seven they return home for two against Pittsburgh before entertaining Detroit and the White Sox. Game time is 8:10 PM EST at Target Field in the North loop overlooking the skyline of Minneapolis, Minnesota. Local Television Networks will be broadcasting. The Opening Betting Line has Pittsburgh as a -120 road favorite. The betting odds total is nine runs for Tuesday’s contest.

Pittsburgh got back into the thick of things by winning five consecutive post-All-Star break and can creep even closer in the standings with the first place Cubs and Braves coming to the Steel City from August 16th through the 22nd. However, manager Clint Hurdle must have his team ready for the task at hand which is the Minnesota Twins who perform well in front of their fans. Pittsburgh could be without catcher Francisco Cervelli who’s dealing with a head injury. The Pirates-120 should be a favorite selection with baseball bettors tonight with Tallion on the hill as well as their 20-6 interleague record, including 12-3 in 2018. The betting odds over the total is 6-2 his last eight starts which could also entice the betting community. Pittsburgh controls their destiny; a lot will be determined the next week or two especially with two wildcard positions wide open. Bovada.Lv, list the Pittsburgh Pirates at +5,000 to win the 2018 National League Central division.

 

As well as Pittsburgh performs against American League opposition, the Minnesota Twins are 6-12 in interleague action in 2018. Twelve and a half behind first-place Cleveland in the American League Central and sixteen form the wildcard manager Paul Molitor must hope for a miraculous turnaround in his fourth season. The Twins look like they will finish the season as bridesmaids once again. Right-hander Jake Odorizzi (4-7) brings a 4.50 earned run average to the mound tonight. The Illinois native has a no-decision in four of his last five starts, but his team has lost three of those four. Left Fielder Eddie Rosario leads the batting order with a .296 batting average, twenty home runs, sixty-seven runs batted in and 138 hits. Longtime fan favorite Joe Mauer has a team-best .349 on-base percentage. Minnesota will probably have to wait for 2019 after losing to the Yankees in the 2017 wildcard contest. Bovada.Lv list the Minnesota Twins +2,500 to win the 2018 AL Central crown.

Mountaineers could be the surprise team in Big-Twelve in 2018.

Written by NCAA Football ATS Expert Analyst Bobby Wallace.

Charliessports.com produces it for Football Betting. Top College Football Predictions are the best in the industry and will continue through the BCS-title game in January of 2019. Finishing the 2017 season with three consecutive losses in not what West Virginia Head coach Dana Holgorsen had in mind but with a slew of talent on offense, they could be virtually unstoppable in 2018. Holgorsen is widely considered an offensive genius, and he’s got a proven commodity under center. However, it’s the defense that worries fans in and around Morgantown. It’ll be Holgorsen’s eighth season at West Virginia, and since their 2011 Orange bowl blowout over Clemson, it’s been mediocrity at best as the Tigers are on another level. The 2018 season opener against Tennessee in Charlotte, North Carolina on Labor Day weekend should show fans what to expect from the Mountaineers in 2018. Big-Twelve road trips to Texas, Oklahoma State, and an early-season non-conference trip to North Carolina State could be more than competitive. West Virginia ends the season entertaining the Oklahoma Sooners in late November.

West Virginia offensive coordinator Jake Spavital believes the 2018 unit will be elite. There’s talent an all the skilled positions not to mention one of the best quarterbacks in College football. University of Florida transfer Will Grier passed for (3,490) yards along with thirty-four touchdowns last season, his first in a Mountaineer uniform and should pad his stats in 2018. Senior wide receivers David Sills (18) touchdown receptions and Gary Jennings a team-leading (1,096) yards receiving returns to form what could be the most dynamic pair in the nation. The opposing defense must also watch for Marcus Simms who’s speed makes his a deep threat on any snap. Massive offensive tackle Yondy Cajuste could be a top ten pick in the 2018 NFL draft; he can open up holes and pass protect with the best in College Football. Colton McKivitz is also an excellent lineman. West Virginia should have one of the most explosive offenses in the NCAA football landscape.

Seven starters must be replaced on a unit that allowed over (445.0) yards of offense per contest, they were especially bad against the run (104th) in the BCS, resulting in giving up (31.5) ppg. Coordinator Tony Gibson understands the landscape of Big-Twelve offenses which will help in spite of Oklahoma, Texas Tech, TCU, and Texas being efficient on offense. The lone bright spot is three-year starter and 2018 preseason Thorpe/Nagurski nominee Dravon Askew-Henry who’ll make sure the secondary is lined up correctly. Sophomore defensive linemen Dante and Darius Stills did excellent jobs last season; they’re expected to play every snap. After projected starting linebackers Quondarius Qualls along with Brendan Ferns were injured in the spring coaches may have to insert some first-year players who’ll at least get experience. The West Virginia defense will have trouble stopping team’s, fan better hope the offense is better than expected. Bovada.Lv, list the West Virginia Mountaineers at 100/1 to win the 2018-19 BCS title.

What’s on tap for the Nebraska Cornhuskers in 2018-19.

Written by College Football Against The Spread Analyst Bobby Wallace.

Charliessports.com produces it for Football Betting. NCAA Football Weekly Picks are the best in the industry and will continue through the BCS-title game in January of 2019. It took three season’s in the Mike Riley era culminating in a 4-8 record in his finale to convince Big Red Nation they made a mistake. University trustee already knew who they wanted to run one of the most prestigious programs in College Football and knew he would accept. Forty-three-year-old Lincoln, Nebraska native Scott Frost played quarterback at the school he now coaches. What a ride it’s been, after a remarkable 2017 campaign coaching the University of Central Florida, leading the Knights to an undefeated season ending in a Peach Bowl victory over Auburn, Frost has one thing in mind; bring the Nebraska football program back to the elite status. However, he knows there’s work to be done on offense and defense, but he’s up for the challenge. Nebraska opens the 2018 season with three consecutive non-conference home games against the likes of Akron, one time Big Eight rival Colorado and, Troy. Big Ten officials didn’t do Frost any favors scheduling in the Big Ten as they must travel to Ohio State, Michigan, Wisconsin, and Iowa in the finale.

Offensive coordinator Troy Walters did a masterful job on Frost’s staff at Central Florida in two seasons, none better than 2017 when the Knights were practically unstoppable. The new regime must improve a unit that averaged (385) yards of offense per contest, eighty-seventh in the nation. Frost is already putting his stamp on the program with an uptempo style of offense with new strength, conditioning, and nutrition programs. Players were tired in spring practice but are getting used to the new way of doing things in Lincoln. Under center will be either (Adrian Martinez) who was in high school last year or redshirt freshman (Tristan Gebbia), both are grasping the new system. Whoever get’s the job they’ll have three excellent offensive linemen for protection. Jerald Foster, Tanner Farmer, and tackle Brenden Jaimes are all physical; Frost didn’t have at Central Florida, which should pay immediate dividends. All American wide receiver Stanley Morgan Jr. set a Nebraska record with 986 yards last years, he’ll see double overage, but JD Spielman is just as reliable. The Nebraska offense will score points, and they’ll get better as the season progresses.

The Nebraska defense allowed opponents (36.4) ppg in 2017 ranking one hundred and eighteenth in College Football which is unacceptable at the storied program. Erik Chinander will be coaching a few players who have played under three defensive coordinators since being on the team, but he’s a no risk no reward type of coach. Nose tackle Mick Stoltenberg will be a beneficiary in the new system by being able to avoid constant double team situations. Three talented linebackers led by Dedrick Young who’ll call signals from his inside position. The secondary will play more bump and run; they were too soft last season. Nebraska is almost a forgotten football program, they haven’t won a conference title since 1999, and it didn’t take Frost long to take UCF from zero victories to an undefeated season. Bovada.Lv, list the Nebraska Cornhuskers at 33/1 to win the 2018 Big-Ten Conference Football Crown.

A pair of teams who are seven games out of division race square off Friday.

 

Authored by Winning Major League Baseball Expert Analyst Al Presto.

Baseball Predictions are winning at a remarkable rate and will continue through the 2018 World Series. The (60-56) Pittsburgh Pirates, are 3-1 on their current road swing after taking two of three at Colorado and putting up ten-runs last night in a victory in the Bay Area. Manager Clint Hurdle will hand the ball to right-hander Clay Holmes who got his first career win at home on July 14th at PNC Park vs. Milwaukee. The Dothan, Alabama native has two appearances in a starting role with a 3.65 earned run average. Although San Francisco is still in the playoff race doesn’t mean Bruce Bochy is taking anything for granted, after all, they’re seven games out of the divisional and wildcard race. Injuries have decimated the pitching staff this season the latest casualty being starter Johnny Cueto who’s out for the season while Jeff Samardzija is set to return later this month. The prolific pitching rotation is what brought three World Series in six years to the franchise from 2010-14. Even 2014 Ace Madison Bumgarner has been a casualty appearing in just twelve games in 2018 but is slowly returning into form, and they’ll need at his best down the stretch. Game time is 10:15 PM EST at AT&T Park near the Embarcadero in downtown San Francisco, California. Local Television Networks will be broadcasting. The Opening Betting Line has Pittsburgh as a +110 road underdog. The betting odds total is eight and a half runs for Friday’s contest.

The Pittsburgh Pirates have a chance to get reacquainted with Andrew McCutchen who roamed the outfield in a Bucs uniform for nine-season and lead the Giants with forty-six runs batted in his first season in San Francisco. After Thursday’s win, Pittsburgh is now a .500 team road team and with three more vs. The Giants and then two in an interleague series in Minneapolis should have them playing with more confidence; they’ve also won eight of their last ten away from home. Outfielders Corey Dickerson along with Gregory Polanco are leading the Pirates in five broad hitting categories while Starling Marte and Josh Harrison are also contributing with consistency. The Pirates are behind St.Louis, Milwaukee, and just seven games behind the first place Chicago Cubs in the NL Central. Pittsburgh is also positioned for the top Wildcard spot in the National League, putting teams on notice are the Pittsburgh Pirates. Bovada.Lv, list the Pittsburgh Pirates at 60/1 to win the 2018 National League Central division.

San Francisco is 1-5 their last six overall, making matter worse is their 2-8 record when playing in front of loyal fans at chilly AT&T Park on the bay. The good news is they’ll have their best starting pitcher in 2018 on the mound tonight. Left-hander Derek Holland has only five wins t to his credit this season with his last four outings resulting in no-decision games, he’s also been used in a reliever role, but San Francisco is 8-3 their previous eleven when Holland gets the start. Bochy hopes he can stop the bleeding to a team that desperately needs a victory. San Francisco will hit the road playing ten games in eleven days from August 13th beginning in Los Angeles and the finale in the Big Apple vs. The Mets. Shortstop Brandon Crawford along with McCutchen have been models of consistency this season playing in nearly all games. Crawford has a team-best one hundred and eleven hits. Bochy understands what it takes to win, and the Giants have the talent and composure to make a run at a playoff berth; don’t count them out. Bovada.Lv, list the San Francisco Giants 40/1 to win the 2018 NLCS.

Mariners are trying to climb back into the hunt for October in Houston.

Authored by Winning Major League Baseball Betting Analyst Charlie Red McDougall.

MLB Daily Picks are winning at a remarkable rate and will continue through the 2018 World Series. After losing star Robinson Cano eighty games for violating the anti-drug policy manager, Scott Servais did a masterful job elevating players to perform at a maximum level, but it’s been tough sledding since the 2018 All-Star break. Houston is 3-7 their last ten as they prepare for a critical four-day series in Houston. The (73-42) Houston Astros have a five-game lead in the American League West division and are returning home from a successful eight-game road trip in which they won six of eight. Right-Hander Justin Verlander has been lights out on the mound his previous three starts, the most impressive a 2-1 win in Los Angeles over the Dodgers his last outing. Game time is 8:10 PM EST at Minute Maid Park in Houston, Texas. Local Television Networks will be broadcasting. The Opening Betting Line has Houston as a -160 home favorite. The betting odds total is six and a half runs for Thursday’s contest.

The Seattle Mariners are nine games out of the top spot in the AL West and have dropped six of nine to the reigning World Series Champions in 2018. Making matter worse they will travel to Oakland to face a red-hot A’s team beginning Monday, August 13th. It doesn’t stop there as they’ll return to the Pacific Northwest to host the Dodgers and Houston again for six games before traveling to Arizona. Ace lefty James Paxton (9-5) with a 3.51 earned run average gets the call Thursday; he’s 1-4 his last four starts. Seattle is 2-7 their last seven overall, and in a ten game span, they’ve won just twice which makes the next two weeks critical as we are approaching the back end of the season. Cano should be cleared to play Tuesday, August 14th in Oakland giving the lineup a much-needed boost. Shortstop Jean Segura, designated hitter Nelson Cruz along with right fielder Mitch Haniger are carrying the load at the plate, and Cano’s added dimension can only help their cause. Bovada.Lv, list the Seattle Mariners at +900 to win the 2018 AL West division crown.

Houston Astros manager A. J. Hinch expects his team to dominate divisional opponents, and they’ve been doing just that, but he’s also aware of the surging Oakland A’s who are only five games behind his squad. Houston has the top pitching staff in baseball, and the bullpen also ranks first in both leagues. Houston has been dominant against every division except the American League East which houses the Boston Red Sox and New York Yankees, two teams that will not be intimidated by the Astros in the postseason. For now, they’ll enjoy a six-game homestand, and it’s on the road again for nine vs. AL West opponents Oakland, Seattle, and the Los Angeles Angels. Jose Altuve along with his infield battery mate Carlos Correa are nursing minor injuries, giving playing time to reserves who are performing admirably and it could pay dividends in the playoffs. The betting odds over the total has come in six of the last eight between the teams. Bovada.Lv, list the Houston Astros +230 to win the 2018 ALDS.

Browns to showcase preseason opener vs. rejuvenated Giants.

Written by National Football League ATS Betting Analyst Bobby Wallace.

Charliessports.com produces it for Football News. NFL Weekly Point Spread Picks are the best in the industry and will continue through the Super Bowl in February of 2019. The Cleveland Browns teased us last summer with a 4-0 preseason record only to go winless when it counts so Thursday’s contest in metropolitan New York means nothing to either side except for being the debut two exciting young players. It’ll be the first time 2018 Heisman Trophy winner Baker Mayfield takes the field as a professional player. There are no doubt fans fired up, but they’ll have to wait for Tyrod Taylor finish his repetitions. Hue Jackson and all of Northeast Ohio are waiting in anticipation to showcase what they witnessed in 2017 when he led the Oklahoma Sooner past Ohio State at the famed horseshoe in Columbus. On the other side of the football, New York Giants want to see how the player drafted right after Mayfield fit’s into their future and running back Saquon Barkley is ready to accept the challenge. However, Giants fans want more bang for their buck with upgrades on offense, negotiations between star wideout Odell Beckham Jr. are coming along and a rejuvenated Eli Manning to match but either will play Thursday. Game time is 7:00 PM EST at MetLife Stadium with a slight view of Manhattan in East Rutherford, New Jersey. The NFL Television Networks will be broadcasting. The Opening Betting Line has Cleveland as a one-point road favorite against the spread. The betting odds total is thirty-five points for Thursday’s Preseason match-up.

This sports handicapper is interested in viewing each play because it’s in the job description but more critical than Mayfield in my estimation is a premier talent who could have a magnificent career. Former Florida Gator wideout Antonio Callaway wowed everyone in his freshman campaign but trouble derailed his College day’s, and now he’s at it again after police sighted recently cited him for a marijuana charge. Josh Gordon should have taught Callaway a lesson and most of all it’s not right for an organization searching for an identity. The Browns defense will be much improved, and 2017 first overall pick Myles Garrett along with Jabrill Peppers who was also taken in round one are ready to become team leaders. Thursday’s game is going to be exciting just because its football; many around the NFL expect Cleveland to win six or seven games, that’s a realistic number. The team of NFL experts at Charlie sports believes Cleveland could compete for the AFC North in an era where it’s any given Sunday or from worst to first.

Pat Shurmur was the architect of a Minnesota Vikings offense that excelled with Case Keenum at the helm, and now he’s got a mature Eli Manning. As much attention as Barkley is receiving second-round pick Will Hernandez has been the talk of training camp with his physical playing style that the Giants badly need. Free agent acquisition Nate Solder should pay dividends immediately with pass blocking skills along with athleticism to match. The combination will take the Giants offense to elite status in Shurmers rookie coaching season. Over $200 million was spent upgrading the Giants defense in 2017 with the signings of pass rush specialist Olivier Vernon and cornerback Janoris Jenkins, adding middle linebacker Alec Ogletree should put a smile on the face of Giants faithful for an entire season; more than that they should be able to compete with the Eagles, Cowboys, and Redskins for the division title. Charliessports.com has all of your betting predictions throughout the 2018-19 NFL season.
