Vegas veteran Benjamin Eckstein, writer of Americas Line, brings three years of experience to produce weekly??selections within hisEcks & Bacon column.
Las Vegas – it was a serious ride, and Two underdogs came throughout the NLDS. The Cardinals finished Atlantas fantasy with an historic 10 run first inning. The Nationals clawed back from a 3-1 deficit, tied it from Clayton Kershaw, then captured a grand salami from Howie Kendricks from the 10th inning. So, momentum? Uncle Mo is divided down the middle. Miles Mikolas against Anibal Sanchez, the pitching matchup is a challenging call. Both had candy outings from the Division Series so Ill wait for Mad Max in game two.
And since you know, I was born & raised in the Bronx, also BLEED pinstripes, so gonna have to take a pass around the Yankees/Astros.
Tomorrow, were seeking to take a bakers dozen, +13 points, with Hawaii against Boise State. Entirely get the Broncos from Idaho are 5-0 and ranked #14, but look that they have played.
They opened with a win against a Florida State team that is poor overcome maybe the worst team in college football, Marshall, Portland State, whoop, whoop, Air Force and UNLV. The Rainbow Warriors in Honolulu come in at 4-1 with wins against Arizona, Oregon State and also a destruction of Nevada, IN Reno. Since we locate a pot of gold at the end of the 16, come with me.
Gont roll with a dual digit dog and try the Bengals +11.5 points over the Ravens. Therefore, were going back to basics, meaning back to Baltimore. We were on or against to our finest bets the initial four months, and it worked out to a 4-0 perfecto. We put the Cowboys on top last week and as most of us know, it did not workout. So, we return into the Ravens, nor think theyre worth 11.5 points, 12 in the event you buy the hook, contrary to a division rival.
These guys play each other tooth-n-nail. Last year, the Edgar Allan Poes (-7) squeezed out a 24-21 win at home, no pay, then lost 34-23 in Cincy. We discovered that the matches in Baltimore have been VERY great for the Bengals, and looked back five decades. They covered four of five and have won three to five. And if you are a fad participant, notice the Andy Daltons have been covered six of the seven as an underdog, while the Ravens have already managed to pay ONLY two of the last 11 as a double digit favorite. This IS my first BEST BET BAABBEEE!!!
Gon na take a taste of this Cowboys -7 points. Painfully , we have been leaping on Dallas. However, this is actually the week. Why? Even theBoys have had difficulty against the crust at the NFL, falling at home and New Orleans to the Packers. But contrary to the poor, the Giants, Redskins and Dolphins sisters, they outscoredem 97-44, also published a 3-0 roster. With Sam Darnold back in activity, the Jets are BOTTOM of the barrel, winning ONCE in the last 14 outings.
