Vegas veteran Benjamin Eckstein, author of Americas Line, brings three years of experience to make weekly??picks within hisEcks & Bacon column.
Las Vegas – it was, and Two underdogs came through the NLDS. The Cardinals finished Atlantas dream with an historic 10 run inning. The Nationals clawed back from a deficit, tied it against Clayton Kershaw 3-3 , subsequently captured a grand salami. Thus, momentum? Uncle Mo is split down the middle. Miles Mikolas against Anibal Sanchez, the pitching matchup is a challenging call. Both had sweet outings in the Division Series, confusing me , so I will wait for Mad Max in match two.
And because you know, I was born & raised in the Bronx, also BLEED pinstripes, therefore gonna have to take a pass.
Tomorrow, we are trying to have a bakers dozen, +13 points, with Hawaii from Boise State. Totally get the Broncos ranked # 14 and have been 5-0, but look that theyve played.
They started with a 36-31 win against a Florida State staff that is poor conquer possibly the worst team in college soccer, Marshall, Portland State whoop, UNLV and Air Force. The Rainbow Warriors in Honolulu come in at 4-1 with wins from also a 54-3 devastation of Nevada, Oregon State and Arizona, IN Reno. Come with me because we find a pot of gold at the end of the Rainbow.
Gonna roll using a double digit puppy and try the Bengals +11.5 points within the Ravens. Were going back to basics, which means back to Baltimore. We had been on or against for our bets the initial four months, and it worked out to a perfecto. We set the Cowboys on top as the BB last week and as we all know, it did not work out. So, we return to the Ravens, nor think they are worth 11.5 points, 12 if you purchase the hook, against a division rival.
These guys play every other tooth-n-nail. Last season, the Edgar Allan Poes (-7) squeezed out a 24-21 win in the home, no cover, then lost 34-23 in Cincy. We looked past and discovered that the games at Baltimore have been good for the Bengals. They have won three to five and coated four of five. And if you are a trend player, notice the Andy Daltons have covered six of the seven as an underdog, while the Ravens have been able to cover ONLY a couple of the last 11. Yes, this IS my first BEST BET BAABBEEE!!!
Gon na take a tiny flavor of these Cowboys -7 points. Obviously, painfully so, we were a week early leaping on Dallas. However, this is actually the week. Why? Even theBoys have had trouble to the Packers against the upper crust in the NFL, losing at New Orleans and house. But contrary to the sisters of the bad, the Giants, Redskins and Dolphins, they outscoredem 97-44, also submitted a 3-0 roll. With Sam Darnold back in action, the Jets are BOTTOM of the barrel, winning just ONCE in the past 14 outings.
