Las Vegas Expert Picks: MLB, NCAA Football, Travers Stakes

Vegas veteran Benjamin Eckstein, author of America’s Line, brings three years of expertise to produce weekly??picks within his”Ecks & Bacon” column.
LAS VEGAS — Most of you are too young to recall the singer Meat Loaf, but the big man said two out of three ai not bad. That is exactly what we posted in this area, setting the past few columns in 8-2. We’ll just take 80%, babbeee!!
Back on the Baseball Board, while the Tigers have become all of the sportsbooks’ DARLINGS here in Vegas and around the planet, don’t think they’re gonna have the ability to solve Jose Berrios at residence. Bet the game last night at if Boyd was the listed starter for Detroit, however they have shifted to VerHagen, and also the line jumped to -320. However Enjoy the Twinkies, but will scale the wager.
And if you’re in the neighborhood, try the Cards with Jack Flaherty over the Rockies. Why? Flaherty has started four games since the start of August, permitting one TEENY-TINY earned run on 26 innings. Got out the calculator, punched in some numbers, and it spit out a 0.35 ERA. Yeah, you heard me, ZERO point THREE FIVE. And as my father always said, when you see an ERA with a ZERO since the number, open the wallet!!!
STAND UP for some real, live, bettable College Football action tomorrow. If you’re a stats geek, then you have probably noticed this one. Florida is 27-1 in games the previous 28 decades. TWENTY-SEVEN wins and 1 loss. Quite impressive, yeah. However, when you envision the Charleston Southerns of this Earth, there is a W basically ensured. The one loss came against Michigan back. This match is currently in Orlando, and whether it is nearer to Gainesville compared to Miami, it’s STILL a neutral field. Believing that the Gators are gonna venture out a win, however with only one returning starter on the offensive line, give the pay to your Hurricanes (+7 points) and first-year head trainer Manny Diaz.
Looked at late night at Hawaii, and while we’d love to jump onto a double-digit home puppy, the Rainbow Warriors, the Pac-12 (‘Zona Wildcats) just might be too much to get a middle-of-the-road Mountain West squad. Taking a hall pass.
Anybody still play the ponies??? My man Martin Mac has some words about the Travers Stakes in Saratoga.
It looks as if we will have a dry track to your Travers on Saturday. Dropping a few love and money on Code of Honor. He comes off a win In Belmont and has been working good leading up to this particular race. So we’re throwing $25, $25 to put $50 around the nose to reveal.
