LAS VEGAS — Had a slew of questions regarding this Red Sox-Royals game which was suspended Wednesday night in the conclusion of their ninth inning at 4-4. The standing rule is that??a sport needs to go 8.5 innings so as to have a result at the sportsbooks. The match went but nearly all the joints are currently calling that the moneyline a push, because there will not be a result until August 22.
However, the 4-4 score in the end of eight innings DID pay the UNDER, with the OVER/UNDER??complete closing at 11. And when youd the Royals on the runline, which was +1.5 conducts, COLLECT your money tops top and then go into the counter, baby, it was a WINNER!!!
Gave a winning parlay in last weeks column, a soccer winner along with a baseball winner . Am I gonna shirt Push it to 7-0, BABY!!!
Start tonight over the D-backs with the Dodgers. It is IMPOSSIBLE to avoid oops Ferris, Walker Buehler and his mark at Dodger Stadium dating back into last seasons centre.
Of course , we AINT gont prevent him. Walkers figures in the home recently are, which makes a new word! Tell me, Eck. How about only one teeny little earned run during the past 16 innings, which translates to an imperceptible 0.56 ERA. And how about 26 Ks in 16 frames. Yeah, TWENTY-SIX!
As for tonights NFL activity, weve had a standing rule of NOT opening the pocket for some of this display, oops, preseason games, but there are. My man @JTFOZ informs me that Minnesotas??Mike Zimmer in 14-7 (66.7%)??is among the three best coaches against the spread in the preseason. You make the call.
Looking in about the English Premier League tomorrow, and well begin using Watford over Hove & Brighton. The Hornets began last year and should not have any issue with the Seagulls.
Why? Since Watford hasnt dropped its opening league match. Yeah, TWELVE seasons. It had been six wins and six draws, therefore well take Watford back it up, and just in case , to win.
In the late game, gotta have Tottenham over Aston Villa. You know my wife is Tottenham and that I am Arsenal, and as far as it pains me to root for the Spurs, dont wan na make cash on the desk. BOY, do we have motives, although it is gon na be expensive.
Tottenham has won nine of the previous 10 while scoring 24 and conceding just three. Do not feel that the Villans have sufficient to remain close, but just in case, well back up with a couple pennies on the lure like +450.
PLZ struck on me over the weekend on Twitter,??@Vegasvigorish in case anything pops about the baseball diamond.
