ASA TOP PLAY 10* ON OVER the Total - Miami Marlins @ New York Yankees, Sunday at 3:05 PM ET

Final day of the regular season and one always has to exercise caution in situations like this in terms of lineups.  In this case, there is reason to believe that both lineups will be solid.  The Marlins rested some regulars yesterday and, after that 11-4 loss, would like to win today to have positive momentum heading into the playoffs plus to finish the regular season with a winning record.  As for the Yankees, they should also be playing all their regulars today as they are still hoping to secure the #5 seed in the post-season.  The Yankees rolled to an 11-4 win yesterday and all 11 runs came against the Marlins bullpen.  That is bad news for Miami's pitching staff today because Jose Urena (0-3, 6.00 ERA) is only expected to go 2 to 3 innings in this one so the Marlins pen will be exposed again.  The Yankees have been knocking the cover off the ball in home games in recent weeks and that continues here.  New York will need to score a lot too because Yankees starter  Clarke Schmidt is a rookie with a 7.71 ERA at the MLB level.  He has already had command issues in his limited MLB action as he has walked 3 and hit a batter for 4 "free passes" in just 2 and 1 / 3 innings.  This is a tough spot for Schmidt and the Marlins will take advantage.  At the same time, in terms of bullpen usage, you know the Yankees would be wise to save their best arms for the upcoming playoff action.  As a result, this one should soar over the total and our computer math model analytics are pointing strongly in that direction for this match-up.  Bet the OVER in the Yankees game in afternoon action Sunday.

ASA top play 10* on OVER 214 Boston Celtics vs. Miami Heat, 7:30PM ET - In the last three games of this series we have seen 223, 221 and 229 total points being scored. Vegas has adjusted their number on these games with the line rising from 209.5 in Game 1 to 214.5 in this contest, but we still have value. The pace of the last three games has led to the higher scoring results as the two teams have gone from 162 field goal attempts in Game 2 to 170, 173 and 170 in the ensuing games. We look for anomalies in outcomes to accurately predict the future and the one glaring stat from the last game was how poorly the Heat shot from beyond the arc. Miami was just 7 of 36 from the 3-point line or 19% which was WELL below their season average of 37.4% that was 4th best in the league. Granted the Heat haven’t shot it as well overall against a stiff Celtics defense, but our model has accounted for that discrepancy and based this outcome on the Heat shooting 29% from beyond the arc. Miami isn’t the only team we need to score here to cash our Over. Boston has gained confidence in the last game and looked like the team that was predicted to come out of this series. The Celtics put up 121 in the last game with 45% shooting overall and 32% from beyond the arc. They also cut down on turnovers which has been a huge issue in this series. The average points scored in this series has been 223PPG per game and that trend continues here. Bet OVER

#485 ASA TOP PLAY 10* ON Dallas +5 over Seattle, Sunday at 4:25 PM ET - We’ve seen some solid line value with these week 3 games and this one is no exception.  Our power rating have Dallas as a 3-point dog here so we’re getting at least a few extra points.  The look ahead line on this game was Seattle -3 and -3.5 last week.  Everyone watched Seattle beat New England on Sunday Night (barely) while Dallas was struggling at home vs Atlanta and came out with a miraculous win.  That’s why 70% of the tickets have come in on Seattle here.  The Seahawks are 2-0 but were outgained in both games including getting outyarded 506 to 383 in their season opening win @ Atlanta.  The Falcons made a number of mistakes to allow Seattle to win that game and Russell Wilson was almost perfect with just 4 incomplete passes.  Last week they held New England just short of the goal line as time expired to pick up a 35-30 win.  Now Seattle is a bit overvalued.  Dallas has played 2 down to the wire games losing @ LA Rams by 3 and winning last week by 1.  We expect another very close game here and getting the Cowboys above +4 is great value.  The Boys still have one of the top offenses in the NFL with weapons all over the field.  After leading the NFL in YPP last year, they are currently 5th this season at 6.3 YPP.  They will be able to move the ball and put points on the board here vs a Seattle defense that has allowed 6.7 YPP in their first 2 games, 3rd worst in the league.  Despite their 1-point cover last week in a game they nearly lost, the Seahawks have not been a great home favorite as of late.  Last season they were just 2-5 ATS as a home favorite losing 3 of those games outright.  Dallas wea favored in their first 2 games but has been a very successful 7-2 ATS as a dog dating back to October of 2018.  This one should be close so we grab the points.

#476 ASA PLAY 8* ON Atlanta -3 over Chicago, Sunday at 1:00 PM ET - We’re not high on Chicago this year and the fact they started the season 2-0 is a bit fraudulent we feel.  They’ve beaten 2 teams that are currently 0-4 combined (Giants & Lions) and they’ve struggled to do so.  They trailed 23-6 @ Detroit entering the 4th quarter and miraculously won with 3 fourth quarter TD’s vs a banged up Lion defense.  Last week they played host to the Giants and held on for dear life winning 17-13 vs a team that lost starting RB Barkley and WR Shepard during the game.  Even with that, the Giants were on the Chicago 10-yard line with a chance to win as time expired.  The Bears were outgained in those 2 games by a combined 721 to 667 and on a YPP basis as well (5.4 to 5.1).  The Falcons have started the season 0-2 and this now becomes a must win for this team.  Just as we feel the Bears 2-0 start is a bit of a farse, we also look at the winless Falcons as much better than their record.  Chicago has played 2 bottom feeders this year as we mentioned, while Atlanta had faced Seattle & Dallas and could have won either.  Last week’s loss at Dallas was a tough one and we all know about the botched onside kick situation at the end of the game which led to the Cowboys winning in a game they never led until that point.  A week earlier Atlanta lost to Seattle but outgained the 2-0 Seahawks by 506 to 383 but were shut out on downs 4 times (0 for 4 on fourth down) and had 2 key turnovers.  Atlanta looks like they are one of the better offenses in the NFL already averaging 6.0 YPP and Chicago will have trouble keeping up here with their offense which we feel is one of the worst in the NFL.  Defensively the Falcons have struggled but let’s remember they’ve faced 2 of the top offenses in the NFL (Dallas & Seattle) and Chicago is nowhere near that level.  We think they’ll look much better on that side of the ball on Sunday.  The Bears have covered just 3 of their last 14 games dating back to last year and just 1 of their last 7 road games.  Teams that start the season 0-2 SU are a money making 33-16 ATS in their 3rd game of the year dating back to 2014.  During that same span, teams that start 2-0 SU are 21-26 ATS in their 3rd game and both fall in line with this game.  This is a terrible spot for an overvalued team coming into Atlanta.  Lay this small number as the Falcons roll.

#470 ASA PLAY 8* ON Minnesota +3 over Tennessee, Sunday at 1:00 PM ET - Value again.  If this game was played as the season opener in Minnesota, the Vikings would have been a favorite.  Instead, just a few weeks in, they are getting nearly a FG.  This is an absolute must win spot for Minnesota and we expect them to play well.  In fact, teams that start the season 0-2 both SU & ATS are an impressive 56-36 ATS in week 2 dating back to 2003.  That simply speaks to making sure you don’t overreact to one or two weeks in the NFL.  We’re not.  The Titans are 2-0 but won BOTH games on last second FG’s beating Denver by 2 and Jacksonville by 3.  They are only a few plays away from sitting right where Minnesota is with an 0-2 record instead of 2-0.  The Titans are undefeated despite losing the YPP battle in each game.  Minnesota’s offense looked very good in week 1 vs Green Bay putting up nearly 8.0 YPP which was the best in the NFL that week.  Last week they turned the ball over 3 times and averaged just 3.7 YPP at Indy.  They were +3 in that game @ Indianapolis and now they are basically the same at home vs Tennessee.  Their offense should look much better this week back in the US Bank dome.  Defensively they’ve looked poor but we anticipate head coach Mike Zimmer, one of the top defensive minds in the NFL, to have them ready at home in this must win spot.  Zimmer has been fantastic when playing at home off a SU loss with a PERFECT 11-0 ATS mark his last 11 in that situation.  The Vikings have also been a money machine covering almost 70% of their home games over 5+ seasons with a 37-17-1 spread mark.  We like Minnesota to get over the hump and win a tight one here so we’ll take the points.

#462 ASA PLAY 8* ON New England -6 over Las Vegas, Sunday at 1:00 PM ET

What a great set up for the Patriots here.  They are coming off a loss last Sunday @ Seattle in a game they had a chance to win but were stopped at the goal line on the final play of the game.  They outgained Seattle 464 to 429 in the game and new QB Cam Newton continue to look impressive.  We’re not a Newton fan by any means and felt he was overrated the last few years because he wasn’t 100% healthy.  He had a bad shoulder and that showed in his performances last season.  However, he now looks completely healthy and has completed over 71% of his passes and is averaging 8.8 yards per attempt (up from 56% and 6.4 YPA last year).  He threw for 397 yards @ Seattle and has rushed for 122 yards on the season.  The “Bradyless” Patriots look much better than we thought they would.  Las Vegas just picked up a HUGE home win in their inaugural game at the brand new Allegiant Stadium.  That win over the Saints pushed this team to 2-0 with their other win coming @ Carolina.  The fact is the Raiders won both games but were destroyed on a YPP basis last week vs the Saints (7.4 to 5.0) but ran 19 more offensive snaps.  The week before vs a Carolina team that many feel is one of the worst in the NFL, Las Vegas needed a TD late in the 4th to pick up the 34-30 win (yardage was about dead even).  Now they head back to the east coast for the 2nd time in 3 weeks while coming off a short week having played on Monday night.  We also expect an angry New England defense that played very well in week 1 at home but not so well last Sunday in Seattle.  That’s not a great match up for a Raider offensive line that is really banged up right now.  They were without 2 starters up front on Monday night and now lost a 3rd with OG Incognito out for this game.  On top of that their has allowed 6.7 YPP though the first 2 games which is almost worst in the NFL.  Belichick has been great off a loss with a 34-13 ATS record and he’s covered over 60% of his games at home.  This one sets up nicely for New England to win by a TD or more.

ASA FREE PLAY ON Houston +4 over Pittsburgh, Sunday at 1:00 PM ET - We really like Pittsburgh this year but it’s going to take awhile for their offense to get in synch after QB Roethlisberger missed an entire year. He’s been decent in the first 2 games but still doesn’t look himself at times. While the Steelers are 2-0, they’ve struggled in those games facing 2 teams that have a combined 0-4 record this season – Giants & Broncos. Last week at home vs an undermanned Denver team, the Steelers barely held on to win despite the fact that Bronco starting QB Lock left early in the game and did not return. Here they get a Houston team that has easily played the toughest schedule in the NFL thus far losing to the Chiefs & Ravens, the 2 best teams in the NFL according to most power rankings. The Texans are now in desperation mode as going 0-3 to start the season would almost eliminate them from the playoffs historically speaking. This was a playoff team last year led by one of the top QB’s in the NFL, Deshaun Watson. Teams that start the season 0-2 SU are a money making 33-16 ATS in their 3rd game of the year dating back to 2014. During that same span, teams that start 2-0 SU are 21-26 ATS in their 3rd game and both fall in line with this game. Let’s not forget this is a Houston team that was in the playoffs last year fighting for their lives. Pittsburgh is taking a huge step up in competition here and didn’t look all that dominant in their first 2 games. This is a reverse line movement play which we like as not surprisingly over 60% of the wagers are on Pittsburgh but the line has dropped to -4. Pitt is just 4-10-1 ATS their last 15 games as a favorite and we’ll call for a close game here. The points are worth taking.

SERVICE BIO

The owners of American Sports Analysts (ASAwins), Lee Kostroski & Mike Merlet, have a combined 50+ years in the sports betting industry. Both started with Doc’s Enterprises, Lee in the late 80’s and Mike in the early 90’s. After learning the handicapping trade from one of the oldest in the business, they started ASA Inc in 1997 and have been going strong ever since. They have been known throughout the industry for their success on BIG GAMES including their 10* Midwest Game of the Year. ASA is located in Madison, WI and a foundation of their handicapping prowess revolves around the heart of the country – especially the Big Ten.

ASAwins has appeared on numerous radio shows throughout the country as special expert football guests including Tampa, New Orleans, Madison, Milwaukee, Memphis, Las Vegas, and Denver just to name a few. They were also featured on the ESPN website with gaming writer Chad Millman during the 2011 season.

ASAwins handicapping methods have evolved through years of with hard work and research being the anchor of their success. Rather than implementing one specific strategy as many handicappers do, they intertwine many different philosophies when it comes to making football, basketball, hockey, and baseball selections. They utilize their massive database that goes back over 30 years and can give them in depth information on any situation you can think of when it comes to handicapping. That’s not where they stop, however. They also research stats and film each week to evaluate the upcoming match ups on the field along with speaking with their personal contacts throughout the country (especially in the Midwest). On top of that, they analyze each point spread (and their movements) comparing them with their own power ratings to find where an edge might be found. Lastly, their predictive analytics or math models predict the outcomes of games based solely on numbers and statistics that aren’t swayed by the human element. So, as you can see, just because a game may fall into a successful system or the scheduling looks good to go against or with a certain team, that doesn’t mean that ASA automatically uses it as a selection. It must go through their in-depth process with all things considered before they give it the ASA stamp of approval. Looking at games from all these angles gives ASA the best of all worlds when it comes to handicapping. Their handicapping theories have proven successful over the years which has them as one of the more tenured experts in the industry.

Lee & Mike at ASAwins have stood the test of time in an industry that makes it very tough to do so. Their 50+ years of experience will give you the WINNING EDGE you need. Sports wagering is an investment and it’s time you invest in the known commodity of ASAwins!
