Red Birds in Southern California Monday to take on Dodgers.

Authored by Winning Major League Baseball Expert Analyst Al Presto.

Top Baseball Daily Predictions are winning at a remarkable rate and will continue through the 2018 World Series. The (68-57), third place St.Louis Cardinals ended a seven-game homestand Sunday, August 19th with a 2-1 loss to Milwaukee but are climbing into the race for October. St.Louis takes on the Los Angeles Dodgers who are returning from a six-game road trip which they went 3-3. It’ll be the first time in 2018 the storied franchises have met. A pair of lefties will be on the mound Monday as Austin Gomber who’s won his last two starts will get the start for St.Louis. The Florida Atlantic University alumni has an impressive 2.89 era, not allowing a run in his previous eleven innings. Monday’s Game time is 10:10 PM EST at infamous Dodgers Stadium in the Chavez Ravine section of Los Angeles, California. Local Television Networks will be broadcasting. The Opening Betting Line has St.Louis as a +150 road underdog. The betting odds total is eight runs for Monday’s contest.

A month after the firing of manager Mike Matheny, Mike Shildt may be on the way to getting the interim label removed based on how they’ve been performing lately. After a rocky beginning post-All-Star break, the Cardinals are 14-4 in August to close within four games Chicago in the National League Central and a half game out of a wildcard spot. Injuries to center fielder Dexter Fowler along with starting Pitchers Michael Wacha and Adam Wainwright, who’ll all be out until late in September has forced other players to perform. Especially in the pitching rotation where Miles Mikolas has thirteen wins to his credit while Bud Norris and Jordan Hicks are coming out of the bullpen in relief to close games. First Baseman Jose Martinez who leads the batting order with a .308 average and sixty-nine RBI’s is questionable tonight with a sore hip; he’s’ missed the last two games. St.Louis will travel the Mile High City for another three-game set against a surging Colorado Rockies team on Friday, August 24th which could determine a lot in the postseason hunt. Bovada.Lv, list the St.Louis Cardinals at +700 to win the 2018 NL Central division.

The (67-58), Los Angeles Dodgers have lost six of ten while falling two games out of first place in the competitive NL West and are a game and a half behind Monday’s opponent in the wildcard race. While having the third rated pitching staff in baseball manager, Dave Roberts wants more production in the batter’s box. Justin Turner (13) and Cody Bellinger(12) are on extended hitting streaks, but more runs need to be manufactured from the likes of newly acquired Manny Machado, Matt Kemp, and Yasiel Puig. It’s been an injury-riddled season for the reigning NL Champions, and it’s beginning to rear its ugly head, but Roberts can’t let it be an excuse for failure. Left-hander Alex Wood get the will be on the hill for the Dodgers who are 2-1-1 his last four starts. The betting odds under is 5-2 between the teams dating back to 2017 which could entice bettors with two hot hurlers on the hill Monday. Bovada.Lv, list the Los Angeles Dodgers at +400 to win the 2018 National League Championship Series.

Dodgers look for revenge at home tonight against Houston in Interleague action.

Authored by Winning Major League Baseball Betting Expert Analyst Greg Nelson.

Top MLB Expert Picks are winning at a remarkable rate and will continue through the 2018 World Series. After taking two of three from Seattle, the Houston Astros spent Thursday, August 2nd in Los Angeles with business as usual on their minds in a rematch of the 2017 World Series. The Astros beat the Dodgers 2-1 the next day without Carlos Correa and Jose Altuve who are nursing minor ailments, but Justin Verlander was outstanding allowing four hits with a run in seven and two-thirds innings. Right-hander Lance McCullers Jr.(10-6) with a 4.06 earned run average will get the call tonight, the Tampa, Florida native should be in his comfort zone after beating the Dodgers in both of his starts in the 2017 World Series. On the other hand, the Los Angeles Dodgers need a win as they are now in a first-place tie with Arizona. Los Angeles is 2-3 on their current homestand which ends Sunday with a six-game road trip against surging Oakland and Colorado on the slate it’s crucial for the Dodgers to perform at a high level. Game time is 9:05 PM EST at Dodgers Stadium in the Chavez Ravine section of Los Angeles, California. Local Television Networks will be broadcasting. The Opening Betting Line has the Dodgers as a -140 home favorite. The betting odds total is seven and a half runs for Saturday’s contest.

Manager A. J. Hinch watched in disgust as his team got swept at home by their in-state rivals Texas Rangers getting outscored 22-8 in the span of three games. The reigning World Champions then lost game one of a series in Seattle before righting the ship, and they are now on a three-game winning streak as fans breath a sigh of relief showing why they have the best road record in baseball. Despite their previous homestand, the Astros have the top pitching rotation in baseball with the bullpen being just as effective. Although Hinch watched his team perform at a maximum level last night they aren’t the same without their infield battery of Altuve and Correa, their return is paramount for the stretch run primarily with the red-hot Oakland A’s. The Astros have beaten Los Angeles 4 of their last six meetings with the betting odds under coming in three times over the previous four contests. The total could be tricky tonight with McCullers who got shelled the last time he pitched in Southern California allowing five runs in four innings to the Angels; he’s also lost his three previous starts overall. Bovada.Lv, list the Houston Astros at +450 to win the 2018 World Series.

The Dodgers will send right-hander Kenta Maeda who usually last five to six inning to the pitcher’s mound. Manager Dave Roberts likes the direction of his team that’s why management didn’t make any significant moves at the trade deadline but the absence of shortstop Cory Seager who’ll miss the remainder of the season could be felt as the season progresses. Left Fielder Matt Kemp is in a bit of a slump in the batter’s box with a single hit in the last ten games, right fielder Yasiel Puig missed last night’s game after driving in four runs batted in the finale vs. Milwaukee, his status is uncertain Saturday. As good as Houston’s pitching staff is the Dodgers are just as productive ranking third in the MLB landscape with a 3.48 earned run average. As usual, Kenley Jansen is one of the best coming out of the bullpen, but the rest of the relievers are having their share of problems this season. Making the under more enticing for bettors is the Dodgers staying under the total seven of their last eight interleague games. Bovada.Lv, list the Los Angeles Dodgers at +500 to win the 2018 World Series Championship.

Written and authored by NCAA Basketball March Madness Expert Analyst Greg Nelson. Charliessports.com produces it for Basketball Point Spread news and notes. NCAA Basketball Tournament Premium 500-star Picks are winning at a 76.6% rate and will continue through the 2016 NCAA Basketball March Madness Finals in April of 2016.The (18-14) and sixteen seed Fairleigh Dickinson Knights of the Northeast Conference will be in the “BUCKEYE STATE” for a first four matchup. Fairleigh Dickinson pla the (20-13) and 16-seed Florida Gulf Coast Eagles of the Atlantic Sun Conference. in 2016 March Madness action. Tip-off is 6:40 PM EST on the Tru Television Network. The game is on Tuesday, March 15, 2016. The teams will play at the University of Dayton Arena off of I-75 in Dayton, Ohio. The best Sports Handicapper believes the FDU Knights are capable of advancing. Farleigh Dickinson picked to finish ninth in the preseason polls in the Conference can be a Cinderella story. Florida Gulf Coast is back in the NCAA Tournament. The Eagles made some noise in 2013 under current USC head coach Andy Enfield. The Opening Betting Line has Florida Gulf Coast as a six-point Underdog Against The Spread on a neutral court. The Betting Odds Total is 151 for Monday’s matchup. Read more on our Cleveland Cavaliers at Los Angeles Clippers game write-up.

The 2016 Fairleigh Dickinson Knights beat Wagner to win the Conference Tournament on March 8th on Staten Island. Fairleigh Dickinson is back in the “BIG DANCE” since the 2005 season. FDU looks to win their first ever game in the NCAA Tournament in the modern era. The Knights lost to Illinois in the opening round their last outing in March Madness. Head Coach Greg Herenda is in his third season on the bench at the Hackensack, New Jersey Institute. Herenda’s roster is full of underclassmen; eleven players are freshman and sophomores. Only one of the thirteen players on the roster has postseason experience, and it may be the determining factor in their first round contest. The Knight’s must play loose and freely, if not it is going to be a long night. Fairleigh Dickinson has capable outside shooters but is suspect in the post. The key to an FDU victory is to score with efficiency.

The Florida Gulf Coast Eagles went through Kennesaw State, North Florida and Stetson to get into the field. Fans of the March Madness Tournament remember the team which beat Georgetown and San Diego State to get to the Sweet Sixteen back in 2013. Florida Gulf Coast wants to begin a tradition in Fort Meyers, Florida. Joe Dooley is now on the bench at Florida Gulf Coach and expects his team to advance to the second round. The Eagles will take on the number-one seed North Carolina Tar Heels if they can get past Fairleigh Dickinson. Don’t forget there has never been a sixteen to upset a top seed but Florida Gulf Coast is believers in the unimaginable. FGCU players are excited and have a point of reference and a formula for advancing. Enfield laid the floor plan for the small mid-majors, and it’s up to the players to play with composure. Florida Gulf Coast must score the basketball and play fearless.

Fairleigh Dickinson is 2-1 Against The Point Spread their last three overall.

The Betting Odds Under The Total are 12-5-1 Florida Gulf Coast the Clippers last eighteen overall.

NFL 2nd Round Playoff Predictions for Sunday January 17, 2016: Seattle Seahawks at Carolina Panthers.

Written and authored by National Football Conference Playoff Expert Analyst Al Presto. Charliessports.com produces it for Football Betting news and notes. NFL Premium Picks have been winning at a 73.9% rate and will continue to the 2016 Superbowl game in February 2016. The (11-6) Seattle Seahawks of the National Football Conference West Division will be in the “TAR HEEL STATE” for their Divisional round playoff game. Seattle plays the (15-1) Carolina Panthers of the NFC South. Game time is at 1:05 PM EST on the Fox Television Network. The teams will play at Bank of America Stadium in downtown Charlotte, North Carolina. The game is on Sunday, January 17th, 2016. The Best Sports Handicapper believes the Seattle Seahawks have “LADY LUCK” on their side after last Sunday’s wildcard miracle win at Minnesota. The Carolina Panthers have the best record in the NFL. Carolina beat Seattle on the road in the regular season. The Playoffs are a different season. The opening betting line has Carolina as a two-point Home Favorite Against The Spread. The Betting Odds Total is 44-points for Sundays game.

The Seattle Seahawks advanced on a missed chip shot field goal by Minnesota kicker Blair Walsh in the wildcard round. Seattle won seven of their last eight to get to the second round of the 2016 NFC playoffs. The organization expects running back Marshawn Lynch to be ready for Carolina. “BEAST MODE” is being his self this week and has limited his interviews with the media. Head Coach Pete Carroll just wants the dynamic Lynch to bolster the running game. Can Seattle survive another plane ride East? Starting quarterback, Russell Wilson is back in the are where he played his first three years of College Football. Wilson was the signal caller at North Carolina State before transferring to Wisconsin. Rookie return specialist Tyler Lockette could be the X-factor Sunday. The Seattle front seven is a stout and pesky bunch. The “LEGION OF DOOM” the Seahawks secondary will have their work cut out, but they are in familiar territory. Cornerback Richard Sherman and the crew will be ready. The key to a Seattle victory is to avoid costly turnovers.

The 2015-16 Carolina Panthers, only loss of the season, came on the road against the Atlanta Falcons. Head Coach Ron Rivera expects his team to go in and be aggressive from the opening kickoff. Starting quarterback Cam Newton is a Player of The Year candidate and can take over a game. Running Back, Jonathan Stewart is a big strong and fast runner who can take the football the distance. Stewart could easily be the difference between the Panther advancing or going home. Tight end Greg Olsen must find ways to penetrate in the short passing game. The Carolina Panther defense has an active group of linebackers. Thomas Davis and Luke Kuechly can make things happen on the football field. Cornerback Josh Norman will probably be matched up with Seattle wide receiver Doug Baldwin.

The Betting Odds Under The Total are 5-0 the last five between the teams in Carolina.

Carolina is 4-0 Against The Spread their last four at home.

Free Winning NCAA Football Betting Picks: Pittsburgh Panthers at Akron Zips.

Written and authored by College Football Expert Analyst Bobby Wallace. Charliessports.com produces it for NCAA Football news and notes.

The (1-0) Pittsburgh Panthers of the Atlantic Coast Conference Coastal Division will travel to the Northeast part of the “BUCKEYE STATE” for a week two matchup. Pitt will take on the (0-1) Akron Zips of the Mid-American East Division in Football action. The game will be at InfoCision Stadium – Summa Field in Akron, Ohio. The Best Sports Handicapper knows for a fact the Pitt Panthers are seeking revenge of last season’s home upset at the hands of the Akron Zips. Akron looks to bounce back after a road loss to the Oklahoma Sooners. The upside is the Zips received a nice payday. The opening betting line has Akron as a thirteen point Home Underdog Against The Spread. The betting odds total is 49-points for Saturday’s game.

The 2015 Pitt Panthers beat Youngstown State 45-37 last Saturday in their opener. Pitt won the game but lost a key component when All-Conference running back James Conner was lost for the season. First-year head coach Pat Narduzzi had his hands full with the Bo Pelini coached Penguins, but his team got it done. Starting quarterback Chad Voytik has to become more of a presence on offense both as a passer and a runner. Narduzzi also plans to get University of Tennessee transfer Nate Peterman some snaps under center. The Panthers offense had some big plays but lacked the consistency needed to sustain long drives. Wideout Tyler Boyd must be more assertive going forward, helping out in the passing game and disguises. The Panthers defense gave up 35-points to an FCS team that is unacceptable in the eyes of Narduzzi. Safety Reggie Mitchell got injured in the opener and his status for Saturday is uncertain. Offensively the Panthers can score on just about any team in the country. Akron can play on the defensive side of the football. The defense must step up and do their part.

The Akron Zips have lost six of seven football games dating back the 2014 season. A home upset of a power conference team would go a long way in forgetting the loss at Oklahoma. The Zips gave up twenty-four unanswered points in the second half as Oklahoma pulled away. Akron head coach Terry Bowden must get his offense clicking if they have a chance to pull the home upset on Saturday. It took Akron 70 plays to get their 226 yards on offense. The Oklahoma defense is better than Pittsburgh’s defense, and the home crowd will be an advantage. The Akron offense returns seven starters from the 2014 season. Senior quarterback Kyle Pohl must rise to the occasion Saturday. The Zips defense will have their hands full with a potent Pittsburgh offense. The Akron offense must match the production of their opponents. The Zips downward spiral continues from last season; a home upset will heal the wounds and give the team confidence going forward.

Free NFL Betting Picks, and Odds: San Francisco 49ers at Houston Texans.

Written and authored by National Football League Expert Analyst Greg Nelson. Charliessports.com produces it for NFL news and notes.

Alot has changed in the San Francisco 49res organization in 2015. The euphoria of a playing at new Levi Stadium has given way to a rebuilding process. The 49ers parted way’s with enthusiast head coach Jim Harbaugh, who has been a fixture in the “BAY AREA”. First as the head coach at Stanford and then the challenge of rebuilding the 49ers. Harbaugh was successful in both ventures. The 2015 Houston Texans are in a similar situation. Texans Head Coach Bill O’Brien is a tough and hard-nosed football guru, who will not allow his team to be outworked. General Manager Rick Smith embraces O’Briens approach toward regaining an elite status the team had three years ago. The game is at NRG Stadium in Houston, Texas. The San Francisco 49ers are a two and a half-point Road Underdog Against The Spread. The Betting odds total is 35 and a half points For Saturday’s game.

The 2015 San Francisco 49ers recently cut All-Pro defensive end Aldon Smith, who has a substance abuse problem. First-year head coach Jim Tomsula embraced the situation instead of running away. Tomsulu let Smith know the organization wants to help him as a human being, not as a football player. San Francisco no longer has veterans Frank Gore, Michael Crabtree, or lineman Mike Iupati on offense; all three are in different cities. Defensive star Patrick Willis and Justin Smith have retired from football, as did starting tackle Anthony Davis. The most talked about retirement was first-year linebacker Chris Boreland, who wants to be productive off of the field. San Francisco took massive defensive end Arik Armstead in the first round of the 2015 NFL draft. The former Oregon standout has plenty of potential. Tomsula wants to get quarterback Colin Kaepernick back to playing light’s out football at the position. Running backs Carlos Hyde, Kendall Hunter, and free agent Reggie Bush will get carries this season. Veteran wideouts Anquan Boldin and newly acquired Torrey Smith will be weapons in the passing game. All-Pro tight end Vernon Davis will also be featured. The offensive line needs work. Guard Alex Boone and tackle Joe Staley anchor the unit. Former Arizona defensive tackle Darnell Dockett is an added addition on the defensive line. Free agent Phillip Wheeler will team with Navarro Bowman and Ahman Brooks at the linebacker position. The 49ers secondary also needs work. Former first round safeties JimmyWard and Eric Reid must step up their production.

Longtime Houston wide receiver Andre Johnson is no longer wearing a Texans uniform. The number-one receiver is former Clemson Tiger DeAndre Hopkins, who is playing like an elite wideout in training camp. Ryan Mallet and Brian Hoyer are battling for the starting quarterback job. O’Brien coached both as one-time members of the New England Patriots. Tackle Duane Brown is a mainstay on the offensive line. Former All-Pro running back Arian Foster has been injury prone the past two season’s, the University of Tennessee product must stay healthy. The strength of the Houston Texans is along the defensive line. J.J. Watt is all you need to say. The reigning defensive MVP of the league has Vince Wilfork and 2014 number-one overall pick Jadeveon Clowney along the front. Linebacker Brian Cushing is the leader of a unit that has young talent. 2015 second round draft pick Benardrick McKinney and Max Bullough has what it takes to play in the NFL. 2015 first round draft choice Kevin Johnson has impressed the coaching staff in training camp. The Texans have two other former early draft choices at the position with Kareen Jackson and Johnathan Joseph.
