Phillies vs Giants
-105 at pinnacle
Play Type: Premium

My 8* WEEKEND WIPEOUT WINNER is on the Giants.

San Francisco is off a 5-3 win here yesterday and I say it keeps the foot on the gas in this interesting matchup on Saturday afternoon.

The visitors go with ace Aaron Nola (5-4, 3.69 ERA), who gave up zero runs over 7.2 scoreless innings in a victory over the Yankess on Sunday. Previous to that he'd allowed at least three runs in each of his last two outings. 

While Nola is a great 3-1 with a 2.51 ERA at home, he's a poor 2-3 with a 5.05 ERA on the road.

He'll be opposed by the Giants' Alex Wood (6-3, 3.71), who gave up two runs and struck out seven over six innings in a win over the Diamondbacks. 

It was a bounce-back performance for Wood, who had struggled previous to that leading up (note that he's 2-0 with a 1.69 ERA in all "day" games.)

Nola is better at home than on the road, and so is his team.

The Giants are undervalued here in my opinion. I think San Francisco has the better bullpen and I expect Wood to be able to easily match Nola inning for inning.

Everything points to a comfortable home side victory here.

The play is San Francisco.

Good luck...Larry

A's vs Yankees

My 10* SITUATIONAL STUNNER is on the Athletics.

The A's held on for a 5-3 win last night and I believe they'll build off that victory and find a way to get the job done here as well.

The visiting side hands the ball to ace Chris Bassitt (7-2, 3.43 ERA), who gave up two runs over six innings in a win over the Royals on Sunday. He's on top form right now, having won four straight and everything points to that progression continuing on Saturday in my opinion.

The Yanks go with Domingo German (4-4, 3.88), who suddenly comes in struggling, in fact he's off his worst start of the year, getting shelled for seven runs off ten hits over 4.1 innings in a loss to the Phillies last weekend. He's now 0-2 with a 5.66 ERA over his last four starts. 

Oakland is rolling, as it's 13-2 in its last 15 games and 19-9 on the road overall.

Look for Bassitt to continue to roll here. Great value on the red hot Athletics.

Good luck...Larry

Lightning vs Islanders

Play Type: Top Premium

My 10* GAME 3 TIE-BREAKER is on the Islanders.

New York won Game 1, but the Lightning have taken the last two.

I like the Islanders to bounce back here in Game 4 though, before the series shifts back to Tampa. 

Game 3 was tight, and it could have gone either way. The Lightning won though 2-1.

Andrei Vasilevskiy stopped 27 of 28 shots. Semyon Varlamov has been great for the Islanders though all year long and there's no reason not to believe that he can't continue his strong play in Game 4.

Despite the loss last time out, the Isles are still 7-2 in their last nine as a home dog. 

Clearly, with a line like this the oddsmakers feel these teams are evenly matched. And they are, but with their backs against the wall and looking to avoid the dreaded 1-3 hole, in my opinion, everything points to the Isles finally bouncing back here after two straight losses.

Great value on New York in Game 4.

Good luck...Larry

Bucks vs Nets
+1 -101 at pinnacle
Play Type: Top Premium

My 10* GAME 7 DECIDER is on the Bucks.

If Kyrie Irving and James Harden didn't get injured, this series would be over.

But they did get injured. Irving won't be playing in this game, and clearly James Harden is far from being 100%.

Kevin Durant is playing out of his mind right now, but the veteran has to be fatigued at this point and I think that the depth and experience that the Bucks bring to the table in Game 7 will be the difference-maker in the end.

Giannis Antetokounmpo had 30 points with 17 rebounds and three assists for the Bucks in their dominant Game 6 victory and I can't see the short-handed Nets slowing him down tonight either.

Durant had 32 in a losing cause in Game 6, but Harden added just 16, while Blake Griffin had only 12 points.

Khris Middleton though had 38 points and ten boards for Milwaukee last time out.

I think Brooklyn's injury issues do now finally come back to haunt it here in Game 7. 

A healthy and focussed Antetokounmpo is the correct call in Game 7.

I'm on the Bucks.

Good luck...Larry

Poland vs Spain
OVER 2½ -117 Lost
Play Type: Top Premium

My 10* Euro Cup TOTAL OF THE MONTH is on the OVER Spain/Poland.

I expect plenty of balls to find the back of the net in this one.

Spain can't be happy here after its goalless draw with Sweden on Monday. 

Poland will be out to atone for a 2-1 loss to Slovakia in its opening match.

It wasn't from a lack of trying for Spain in its opening game, but it ran into a red hot keeper in Robin Olsen. With Slovakia up next, the Spaniards know they'll need to press the pace here and win convincingly. 

Poland's form is terrible, as it has just one win in its last eight matches. 

These teams haven't faced each other since 2010, and in that game Spain won 6-0.

I don't expect such a lop-sided discrepancy here, but I do expect plenty of goals and a similar final combined score here between these two hungry sides. 

Considering the circumstances each side finds itself in, I believe this total is much too low.

The play is the over.

Good luck...Larry

White Sox vs Astros
White Sox
+1½ -150 at pinnacle
Play Type: Premium

My 8* RUN-LINE LAS VEGAS INSIDER is on the White Sox.

In what I expect to be a tight game, I'm going to lay the mid-sized price for the extra 1.5 runs.

Chicago comes in hungry here after three staight losses to the Astros, while Houston enters complacent after six straight victories. 

Dallas Keuchel (6-1, 3.78 ERA) will be leaned upon here by Chicago to stop the slide. He enters off a strong victory over the Rays on Tuesday, allowing four hits over seven scoreless innings. 

Keuchel comes in red hot, as he's gone three straight starts in which he's gone at least six innings, while not allowing more than two earned runs. 

Lance McCullers (3-1, 2.89) returned from the ten-day IL to give up two runs over four innings in a no-decision to the Rangers on Tuesday. 

It was a decent performance against a weak hitting line-up. Clearly, McCullers is going to be tested today by this hungry White Sox line-up.

And one final factor I'll point out, note that Chicago is 7-2 in its last nine after three or more straight losses in a row.

I think there's great value on this mid-sized priced wager.

The play is Chicago on the run-line.

Good luck...Larry

Clippers vs Suns
+5 -105 at pinnacle
Play Type: Top Premium

My 10* GAME 1 DECIDER is on the Clippers.

Two major players are out for each team. The Clippers are without star Kawhi Leonard, and the Suns will be without star Chris Paul.

LA advanced by taking out the Jazz in six games, while Phoenix swept Denver in four games. 

The Clippers took two of three in the regular season.

Paul George has filled in admirably though in place of Leonard and there's no reason not to think that he can't carry over that momentum here. George averaged 29.2 points to beat Utah.

Terance Mann had a career night with 39 points in the Game 6 win over the Jazz as well.

The big question here is, will rest lead to rust for the Suns? It might. And then throw in the additional factor of not having your floor general to guide them, this does indeed set up as a letdown spot for Phoenix in my estimation (note that they are in fact just 6-16 ATS in their last 22 when playing with three or more days rest.)

And conversely, the Clippers couldn't be more in-sync with each other right now, despite the absence of Leonard.

I thinks "Playoff P" is for real and while I do believe the outright victory is possible, in the end let's grab the points.

Good luck...Larry


Age: 65 (turns 66 in November).

Years in handicapping: Larry entered his 36th year as a professional handicapper in August of 2019.

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 (began in 1985), the nation’s longest running pre-game handicapping show on the USA-TV network (also hosted Sports Desk on the same network from 1996-98). In then joined the panel of The Winning Edge in the early 2000s. 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 35-plus years, you get good at it."

Star Ratings: 9 and 10*s are considered "Best Bets." All other plays are rated between 6 and 8*s, depending on strength and/or price.

Release Times: Larry releases "daily sports" (MLB, NBA, NCAAB and NHL) on the day of the game. His full card is almost always available by 10:00 ET (save Late-Breaking games). In the FB season, Larry begins releasing plays as early as Tuesday. His full CFB card is typically complete by Thursday (on Friday, at the latest) and his full NFL card will be mostly complete by Friday (definitely by Saturday at 3:00 ET). 36-Club Play: It represents Larry's 36 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, via the internet. Like his 36-Club plays, expect no more than one play per month, per sport (rated 10*s). Game of the Month and Game of the Year Plays: Always rated 10*s. Las Vegas Insider: Throughout his 36 years "in the business," Larry has become known as "the ultimate Las Vegas insider." The contacts he's developed over more than three 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 7 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 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 began releasing these plays in MLB '09 and he's expanded them since,to all sports (rated from 7-10*s, based on strength and/or price for moneyline sports). PERFECT STORM: Larry just added these plays the last few years and his accompanying expert analysis makes these popular plays self-explanatory (typically rated 9 or 10*s but moneyline sports may be rated 7 or 8*s due to price). 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 7 and 10*s, depending on strength and price). 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!" Look for 3-game reports this FB season on Saturday (college) and Sunday (NFL). Get three plays on a single report from Larry (many will be TV games), the originator of the "Superstar Triple Play!". 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).

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."
