Twins vs Mariners
-102 at 5Dimes
Play Type: Free

My 1* Free Play is on the Seattle Mariners (4:05 EST).

Kyle Gibson (4-1, 4.26 ERA) gets the nod for the Twins and he will be opposed by Yusei Kikuchi (2-1, 3.64) of the Mariners.

Minnesota has now won five in a row after last night’s 18-4 demolition of the M’s. 

I think the home side bounces back and atones for that pathetic effort though and I believe that Minnesota finally has a letdown here after winning the first three games of this series handily. 

Gibson has had decent success vs. Seattle throughout his career, but note that he’s still only 23-29  with a 4.59 GAA in all “day” games. 

The Mariners have been a disappointment after a blazing 13-2 start to the 2019 campaign, but they still come into this one ranked fifth in the league in scoring with 5.26 RPG. 

Note that Kikuchi is 0-1 with a 3.79 ERA at home thus far. 

I simply feel that Minnesota runs out of gas and I think the “hungrier” home side will take advantage. Consider Seattle on Sunday afternoon.

Good luck…Larry

Cubs vs Nationals

Play Type: Top Premium

My 10* "signature" LEGEND Play is on the Chi Cubs at 7:05 ET.

The Washington Nationals will make their first appearance of the season on Sunday Night Baseball, when they host the Chicago Cubs. The Nationals got clobbered 14-6 on Friday to open this three-game set but picked up a 5-2 win on Saturday. Washington, just 19-26 on the season, now has a chance to earn its second straight series win, after going nearly a month without one. Meanwhile, the 26-17 Cubs are in danger of losing their second straight series after going 9-0-1 over their previous 10.

Tonight's pitching matchup features Kyle Hendricks (3-4, 2.86 ERA) vs Jeremy Hellickson (2-2, 6.00 ERA). Hendricks has followed his breakout 2016 season (16-8, 2.17 ERA) by going 7-5 (3.03) and 14-11 (3.44). He's just 3-4 in 2019 (team is 4-4 in his eight starts) but he's pitched way better than his record. Hendricks gave up seven runs in five innings in his final start in April, before beginning his current dominant stretch. It began with his third career shutout May 3 against St Louis (4-0), followed by back-to-back eight-inning efforts while giving up a total of just one ER (14-1 KW ratio)

Washington has had trouble with the back end of its rotation and Hellickson being a prime example. He allowed five runs in five innings of a 6-2 loss to the New York Mets on Tuesday, the FOURTH time in five starts in which he's allowed five runs or more. Let's add that he has not finished six innings in SIX straight starts, Along with his 'ugly' 6.00 ERA, he owns a 1.67 WHIP and .289 BAA. Making matters worse, the former Rookie of the Year (2011 seems like 'light years' ago!) has an 8.04 ERA and 1.79 WHIP through his first four appearances (three starts) at home in 2019.

As noted above, expect Hendricks to bring his "A-game" (team has won his last three starts with Hendricks posting an 0.36 ERA) and note that he also owns a 2.75 ERA in nine career starts vs Washington, with the Cubs going 7-2. The top-four batters in the Cubs' lineup went a combined 1-for-14 on Saturday but that WON'T happen here, vs the sad-sack Hellickson. Cubs win! Cubs win!

Good luck...Larry

Brewers vs Braves

Play Type: Premium

My 9* Pitching Mismatch is on the Mil Brewers at 1:20 ET.

Atlanta Braves first baseman Freddie Freeman has hit safely in four straight contests after going 2-for-5 with a lead-off HR in the 10th inning on Saturday that gave the Braves a 4-3 triumph over the Milwaukee Brewers and extended their winning streak to four games. The Brewers were able to send the game to extra innings by tying things up in the ninth but finished 2-for-13 with runners in scoring position and suffered their second straight loss after winning NINE of their previous 12 games.

Taking the mound on Sunday will be Brandon Woodruff (6-1, 3.72 ERA) and Mike Foltynewicz (0-3, 8.02 ERA). Woodruff opened the season with a 5-3 mark in 27 career appearances (just 12 starts) but has been a HUGE part of Milwaukee’s early success this season. He can become the first National League pitcher to record seven wins with a victory here, as the Brewers have gone  7-2 (+$451) in his nine 2019 starts, so far. He enters this contest 4-0 with 1.23 ERA over his last four, allowing only three runs and 17 hits in 22 innings with 27 strikeouts. Woodruff will be facing the Braves for the first time,.

Foltynewicz was 13-10 with a 2.85 in 2018, finishing eighth in the NL Cy Young award voting while placing sixth in strikeouts (202) and ERA. However, he pitched just two innings in spring training due to right elbow soreness. After posting a 6.11 ERA while going 1-1 in four minor-league rehab starts for Triple-A Gwinnett, he made his season debut on April 27. He has allowed eight HRs over 21.1 innings in four starts in 2019, after surrendering a career-worst eight runs on seven hits (including three HRs) and three walks in 4.2 innings of a 14-3 loss to St Louis on Tuesday.

Foltynewicz has yet to allow fewer than four runs in any of his four starts in 2019! In contrast, Woodruff is 4-0 and has not allowed more than ONE run in anyof his last four starts (1.23 ERA). Yes, Foltynewicz is 2-2 with a 2.90 ERA in six career games (five starts) vs the Brewers but he's currently NOT that pitcher!

Good luck...Larry

Bucks vs Raptors
-2 -107 at pinnacle
Play Type: Top Premium

My 10* Situational Stunner is on the Tor Raptors at 7:05 ET.

The Bucks needed a 32-17 fourth quarter to win and cover Game 1 against the Raptors, including ending the game on a 10-0 run. I had the Bucks in that one and came right back with them in Game 2, saying  that it was my belief that Game 1 was a HUGE "opportunity lost" for Toronto. Milwaukee was an incredible 9-1 SU & ATS this postseason at that point and after its Game 1 win, checked in at 38-9 SU at home, averaging 119.0 PPG. I said "lay the points," again. The Bucks had their way with the Raptors in Game 2, jumping out to a 35-21 first quarter lead and a 64-39 advantage at the half. After trailing by as many as 28 points, Toronto made a push to draw to within 13 in the third quarter but the final was 125-103.

Antetokounmpo finished with 30 points and 17 rebounds but Ersan Ilyasova (17 points), Malcolm Brogdon (14) and George Hill (13) combined to go 17-of-29 from the floor off the bench in Game 2, with each of the three logging more than 20 minutes. "We have a great group of coaches who trust us, and I think it's all about chemistry," Ilyasova told reporters. "When we go to locker room, even when we lose the game, everybody stays positive. It's just we're all about the next game. I think for us it's big time when we go to the playoffs."

Kawhi Leonard scored 31 points in each of the first two games but in Game 2, Toronto's other four starters combined for just 33 points. Center Marc Gasol struggled to two points on 1-of-9 shooting in Game 2 and placed the blame for the loss on himself. However, he was hardly alone. All-Star PG Kyle Lowry, who scored 30 points on 10-of-15 shooting in Game 1, slumped to 15 points on 4-of-13 in Game 2.

"The ball," as they say, is Toronto's court. The Raptors were 32-9 during the regular season at home and have gone 5-2 in the playoffs. Toronto has been best-known for its underachieving postseason but the difference in this year's team is, Kawhi Leonard. He's averaging 31.7 PPG (on 52.7% shooting) and 8.5 RPG in the postseason. It's up to him to 'carry' the Raptors to a win. That's my bet!

Good luck...Larry

Blues vs Sharks
-125 at pinnacle
Play Type: Premium

My 10* PERFECT STORM is on the SJ Sharks at 3:08 ET.

Jordan Binnington made 29 saves in leading the Blues to  a 2-1 win in Game 4, which sent this series back to San Jose for a Game 5, tied at two-all.  The San Jose Sharks are 7-3 this postseason at SAP Center but the St Louis Blues are an impressive 6-2 on the road in the 2019 Stanley Cup playoffs. That sets the stage for Sunday's Game 5 of the Western Conference finals. Binnington, coming off shaky efforts in Game 1 and Game 3 losses (stopped just 46 of 56 shots for an .821 save percentage), set a franchise record with his 10th postseason victory this year and became only the 10th rookie goaltender to record double-digit wins in a single playoff run in league history.

Martin Jones, San Jose's oft-criticized goalie rebounded from allowing four goals in the second period to stop the next 15 shots that came his way in Game 3, when the Sharks came back to win in OT.  "It gets lost when we tie it up and win it in overtime," captain Joe Pavelski said. "But the critical saves he makes down the stretch ... (that) buys us some time to tie that thing up, were pretty important, pretty special." Don't blame Jones for the Game 4 loss, as he stopped 20 of 22 shots. Returning home will be good news for two San Jose players. Tomas Hertl scored a power-play goal in the third period for his first point of the series in Game 4 (and second on the road), as opposed to the 13 points (eight goals, five assists) he's posted at home. Defenseman Brent Burns has 13 points (four goals, nine assists) in 10 home contests in the playoffs.

We know that when conference finals are tied 2-2, the winner of Game 5 owns an all-time series record of 19-8. More importantly, it's IMPOSSIBLE to ignore what's been going on with San Jose. After overcoming a 3-1 deficit against Vegas in winning Games 5, 6 and 7, the Sharks have alternated wins and loses in the team's last 11 games, winning Games 1, 3, 5 and 7 vs the Avs (lost Games 2, 4 and 6), with that trending continuing this series (won Games 1 & 3, while losing Games 2 & 4). I've been 'dialed in' on these two teams (9-1 in contests involving at least one of these teams in the 2019 playoffs) and I'll 'go to the well' again here, expecting the Sharks to follow their above-mentioned pattern and follow a game 4 loss with a win in Game 5.

Good luck...Larry


Age: 63 (turns 64 in November).

Years in handicapping: Larry entered his 34th year in the industry in August of 2017.

Achievements in handicapping: 1985 Castaway’s Pro Football Challenge Champion, then the most prestigious handicapping contest in Las Vegas; 1999 Stardust Invitational semi-finalist.

A member of the original cast of Proline, the nation’s longest running pre-game handicapping show on the USA-TV network (also hosted Sports Desk on the same network). Although well-known on TV for his expert game analysis and no-nonsense handicapping style, Larry may be best known for his radio work. He hosted his own syndicated call-in radio show, Sports Central. It aired live from Bally's Casino in Las Vegas in the early to mid-90s and at one time was heard in more than 100 markets.

Systems used for handicapping a game: Fundamental and statistical analysis. "I'm not typically a trend and system kind of guy," Ness says. "I look at team strengths and weaknesses and compare them. It’s an all-encompassing thing and over 30-plus years, you get good at it."

34-Club Play: It represents Larry's 34 years in the business and gets his highest star rating (10*s). Expect no more than one of these plays per month, per sport during the regular season.

LEGEND Play: Larry's often been referred to as a Las Vegas legend and he's 'borrowed' the title for his other "signature play.". Larry's LEGEND Plays were previously available to only a select group of private clients but they are now available to all, through the internet. Like his 34-Club plays, expect no more than one play per month, per sport (rated 10*s).

PERFECT STORM: Larry just added these plays the last few years and his accompanying expert analysis makes these popular plays self-explanatory (rated 9 or 10*s).

Situational Stunners: Larry's a fundamental handicapper at heart but he does pay attention to team and situational trends (especially in MLB). When his fundamental handicapping and a strong trend or situation match up, he releases a Situational Stunner. He just started releasing these plays in MLB '09 and he's expanded them since, to all sports (rated 8, 9 or 10*s).

Las Vegas Insider: Throughout his 34 years, Larry has become known as "the ultimate Las Vegas insider." The contacts he's developed over more than two decades (on both sides of the 'counter'), are arguably "unmatched!" He confers daily with 'his friends' and when "all the stars align on the same game," Larry releases an exclusive Las Vegas Insider (rated between 8 and 10*s).

Oddsmaker's Error Plays: Larry uses this term with "great respect" (and not very often), as he counts among his very closest friends many of Las Vegas' most famous and respected Sport Book directors (past and present). However, when Larry feels "the line is significantly off," he'll release one of these "not to be missed" plays (rated between 8 and 10*s).

Weekly and Weekend Wipeout Winners: Larry added this self-explanatory moniker just a few years ago. They've become immensely popular and why not? Who wouldn't want a game that has "blowout written all over it," supported by Larry's expert analysis (rated between 8 and 10*s).

Late-Breaking Plays: Larry will always go back and take a "second look" at each day's card, after posting all his games. When he finds something he missed the first time around, he'll release a Late-Breaking Play. These plays are more prevalent in sports like baseball and basketball than football (typically rated at 8 or 9*s).

Superstar Triple Play: Over the years, many of Larry's regular clients have clamored for more three-game reports. You asked for it and Larry's responded. Back in the late 1980s and into the mid 1990s, 900-numbers became "the rage." While a panel member of Proline (see above), Larry created the Superstar Triple Play. One call got you three Superstar Triple Plays (in a particular sport). For almost a decade, anywhere from 1,500 to 3,500 callers responded each weekend, when Larry offered his famous "Superstar Triple Play" pitch on Proline. Starting in 2009, Larry began going "Back to the Future!" Almost every Saturday (college) and Sunday (NFL) this football season, get three plays on a single report from Larry (many will be TV games), the originator of the "Superstar Triple Play!"

Release Times: Larry likes to release his picks early so that clients have as much time as possible to shop around. NFL and College Football plays are posted very early in the week (sometimes almost up to a week in advance.) NBA, College hoops and NHL are all posted the day before the game goes off. And the same goes for MLB, with selections posted the night before the game. Sometimes life gets in the way and Ness won't release until the morning of the game, but for the majority of the year Larry likes to say: "The earlier the better!" 

Sports and conferences he excels at handicapping: MLB is Larry's favorite sports to handicap, saying the money is in the statistics. He 'loves' the daily action and the long season. "If I had to pick one sport, I would chose baseball because you’re playing pitchers, streaks, teams that are hot and cold," Ness says. "I also love the NBA and NFL playoffs, the college bowl games plus the college basketball tourneys, which are seasons unto themselves."

Quote: "No one works any harder and my work-product speaks for itself," Ness says. "I have a no-nonsense style and my logic is easy to follow. Anyone buying my plays will know exactly what I was thinking when I made the selection. After 34 years, the Larry Ness brand is instantly recognizable and my analysis ranks with the best in the industry."
