Vegas veteran Benjamin Eckstein, author of Americas Line, brings three decades of expertise to produce weekly??picks within hisEcks & Bacon column.
LAS VEGAS — Perhaps not Waiting na brag about hitting on 80 percent??a week, four from five. OOPS! Ill try and do.
Born and raised in the Bronx and pinstripes bleed. As my heart triumphs over my mind, the Yankees-Twins is really a zone. My head says would be the Astros SO cheap from the Rays??? Get that Tampa is the MLB narrative that is feel-good, and the Cinderella team, however, man, were speaking Justin Verlander! Were speaking DOMINATION! We are talking Cy Young! Were speaking 21-6 with a 2.58 ERA and 300 Ks! And of course, dont forget his inspiration… Kate Upton. Tyler Glasnow is trotted out by the Rays , yeah, who? OK, he is 6-1 with a ERA, however we are still discussing VERLANDER!
If the Cardinals tickled with Jack Flaherty, that has been , well, Verlander-like down the stretch and we wouldnt mind. He has won seven of his last nine, and allowed just 11 earned runs over a 106-inning stretch for a gorgeous 0.93 ERA. And oh yeah he posted 130 times to the letter K! Considering that St. Loo won , we will keep it real light.
On the school football board you get a tasty matchup between Rutgers, Maryland and two teams, that were outscored by a total of 111-0. ONE HUNDRED ELEVEN! And the Terps are a 13-point favorite. What? OK, I am buying. Why? This season, because the Scarlet Knights are outscored play!
And at the SEC battle, we are gont roll over Florida with Auburn. You have 5-0 vs??5-0. And the Tigers are the preferred. Why? Theyre gont win.
On to Sunday, and we are all on the Cowboys -3.5 points on the Packers. This is the week which I am not off or on Baltimore, after hitting four consecutive stakes. Why? Since the Ravens have appeared awful the previous two matches, and I am not totally sold on the new QB, Mason Rudolph of Pittsburgh. Dallas was not dreadful but awful in a lackluster 12-10 loss at New Orleans last week. Why theBoys? A lot of reasons, but most significant is that the game. Ezekiel Elliott is done after four games with his preseason, and ought to be ready to rumble, BIG TIME.
Why? Since Green Bay has been horrendous against the run, allowing 176 yards into the Eagles 149 into Denver in Week 3 and 198 to Minny in Week 2. The Cheeseheads also do not succeed on the street, winning just two of the 11. Dallas posting 10 wins at the previous 11 in Jerry World and continues to be exceptional in the home, on a 7-0 run. And that is the reason why this is my BEST BET
Also looking at the Titans -3 points over the Bills. This game almost made it into their greatest wager territorys rarefied air. But with no deal about the Josh Allen injury (concussion), we cannot make it a BESTIE. But just like we did last week, when we requested you to pump Buffalo up to best bet standing if Donta Hightower was outside (he had been, and it was a winner), please do exactly the same here. Matt Barkley gets the start at QB for the Buffs and if Allen does not perform M, Marcus Titans and Mariota turned into a BEST BET BAABBEEE!!!
