Mets vs. Dodgers
  at  5DIMES
in 10h

My 1* Free Play is on the LA Dodgers (8:10 EST).

A couple of red-hot teams collide in LA on Monday night.

The visitors go with ace Jacob deGrom (3-5, 3.72 ERA), while the home side counters with ace Clayton Kershaw (4-0, 3.33). Kershaw owns a sharp 0.98 WHIP and 44-8 KW ratio through seven starts in 2019 and his team is 7-0 in those contests. Kershaw’s dominated the Mets throughout his career as well, going 9-1 with a 2.07 ERA in 15 starts (note that the Dodgers are 13-2 in those games.) 

deGrom is coming off a decent outing vs. the Nationals on Wednesday, but note that he’s 0-4 with a 3.20 ERA in eight career outings vs. the Dodgers. 

LA owns the best record in the NL and it returns home off a 6-2 road trip. The Mets have just clawed their way back to the .500 mark and I think they’re in over their heads at Chavez Ravine on Memorial Day Monday.

Look for Kershaw to continue his strong start in front of the home town crowd. Consider LA on Monday night.

Good luck…Larry

Mariners vs A's
-137 at 5Dimes
Play Type: Free

My 1* Free Play is on the Oakland Athletics (4:05 EST).

Oakland’s won eight straight and I think it carries that momentum over here vs. confirmed “gas can” Mike Leake.

"We're confident, and everything is clicking right now," Oakland center fielder Ramon Laureano said confidently after yesterday’s 6-5 victory. "Just keep it rolling."

Leake (3-5, 4.73 ERA) is 2-2 with a 4.15 ERA in nine starts vs. Oakland. 

A’s starter Brett Anderson (5-3, 4.14) is 8-5 with a 2.38 ERA in 20 career starts vs. the M’s. 

Note as well that the Mariners are already a terrible 2-9 (-6.4 units) this season as a road dog in the +125 to +150 range, while Oakland is a solid 11-5 as a favorite this year.

I like Anderson to continue his dominance in this series and I expect Oakland to keep the good times rolling with another solid victory at home. Consider the A’s on Sunday afternoon.

Good luck…Larry

Braves vs Cardinals
+140 at 5Dimes
Play Type: Top Premium

My 10* ESPN Game of the Month is on the Atl Braves at 7:05 ET.

The Cards trailed 3-2 in the eighth inning last night, looking to lose for the 16th time in their last 21 games. However, a four0run uprising gave them the 6-3 win. Jedd Gyorko, who entered Saturday's contest hitting just .167 with only seven singles and two RBI, capped the rally with a three-run HR. The Braves had entered Saturday’s contest 24-2 when leading after seven innings this season (you can't make this stuff up). The Cardinals have gone 0-5-1 in their last six series, their longest such winless streak since 2017, but now have a chance to win the series in tonight's rubber match

Taking the mound Sunday night will be Julio Teheran (3-4, 3.67 ERA) and Jack Flaherty (4-3, 4.19 ERA). Teheran struggled in April, going 2-3 with a 5.35 ERA but takes the mound for his fifth start in May, having allowed juts two ERs on 10 hits over 22.2 innings of his first four starts this month (0.79 ERA and .132 BAA). Flaherty started poorly in 2019 as well, allowing four or more earned ERs in three of his first five starts but owns a 3.34 ERA while holding opponents to a .188 batting average over his last five outings (note: team is just 2-3).

Both pitchers enter this contest pitching well, although Teheran has the better recent resume. I'll stick with teh vet in this one, as Teheran 3 owns a 2.77 ERA in seven career starts against St Louis plus the Cards have won just SIX of their last 21 and haven't won a series since taking three of four at Washington (April 29-May 2). Why win one now?

Good luck...Larry

Diamondbacks vs Giants
+110 at betonline
Play Type: Premium

My 9* Division Dominator (NL West) is on the SF Giants at 4:05 ET.

The Arizona Diamondbacks began the weekend on a five-game losing streak but have rediscovered their offense at Oracle Park against the host San Francisco Giants. They've taken the first two contests of the three-game series by a combined score of 28-6. The D'backs set a season high for runs scored in Friday’s 18-2 rout and followed by cruising to a 10-4 win on Saturday. San Francisco has now lost four in a row and at 21-30, finds itself 12 1/2 games out in the NL West (D'backs are 27-25).

Luke Weaver (3-3, 3.14 ERA) takes the mound for Arizona, opposed by San Francisco's Shaun Anderson (0-0, 3.60 ERA). The two are former college rivals, as Weaver pitched at Florida St and Anderson at Florida. Weaver was a hard-luck loser Monday against San Diego, after allowing two runs and striking out seven over six innings but taking the 2-1 loss. He owns a 2.44 ERA and 55-to-8 KW ratio over his last eight starts (since April 12), although the D'backs are a modest 4-4 in those starts. Anderson was acquired from Boston in the 2017 trade for Eduardo Nunez and had posted a 4.11 ERA in seven starts for Triple-A Sacramento before his promotion. However, he has pitched well in two starts since joining the Giants’ rotation May 15, allowing a total of five runs (four earned) with eight strikeouts over 10 innings Giants have won BOTH games!).

I realize Weaver has put up impressive numbers lately but I'm still not sold. Anderson has been a nice surprise for the Giants and I'm expecting the team that's scored 28 runs son 34 hits the last two games, will "return to earth." That's the bet.

Good luck...Larry

Phillies vs Brewers
-156 at 5Dimes
Play Type: Premium

My 7* Las Vegas Insider is on the Mil Brewers at 2:10 ET.

Andrew McCutchen, the 2013 NL MVP, is 12-for-29 with a pair of HRs and nine RBI during a seven-game hitting streak after hitting a solo shot in Saturday’s 7-2 victory. He's not alone, as he has plenty of teammates who are swinging hot bats as well, helping the Phillies win SEVEN of their last nine (Phils are averaging 5.86 RPG in their seven wins). Philadelphia leads the NL East at 31-21, 2 1/2 games up on the Braves. As for the Brewers, they have now lost three of their last four at home, after winning EIGHT of their previous 10 at Miller Park. Milwaukee is 29-24, 2 1/2 games back of the NL Central-leading Cubs.

Philly goes for a three-game sweep on Sunday, as Zach Eflin (5-4, 2.76 ERA) squares off against Brandon Woodruff (6-1, 3.51 ERA). Eflin posted his fourth quality start in five outings Tuesday, when he limited the Chicago Cubs to one run on six hits and four walks over six innings of a no-decision (Phils lost, 3-2). Eflin has had a very good season so far, as he has given up three runs or less in SEVEN of his 10 starts. Eflin gave up four runs over five innings in an 11-3 loss to Milwaukee last week, falling to 2-1 with a 3.94 ERA in three career starts vs the Brewers.

Woodruff opened the season with a 5-3 mark in 27 career appearances (just 12 starts) but his six wins leads all Milwaukee starters in 2019. He has strung together five consecutive wins in his last seven trips to the mound (team is 6-1), allowing two runs or less in SIX of those seven starts. He did not get a decision in his last start May 19, even though he held Atlanta to two runs across a season-high eight innings. Woodruff has not permitted an earned run in 10 career innings versus the Phillies.

No knock on Eflin but Woodruff comes in on the better roll, allowing just five ERs over 30 innings of his last five starts (Milwaukee is 5-0 and Woodruff's ERA is 1.50). He's shown no signs of slowing down, as he pitched a season-high eight innings in his last outing. NO sweep here, as the Brewers get the "W."

Good luck...Larry

Reds vs Cubs
-156 at GTBets
Play Type: Premium

My 7* Situational Stunner is on the Chi Cubs at 2:20 ET.

The first-place Chicago Cubs (30-20) beat the Reds 8-6 on Saturday, after falling 6-5 on Friday. The Reds battled back to forge a tie twice in Saturday's contest but the loss dropped them to just 8-22 in their last 30 contests at Wrigley Field. The rubber game of the three-game series goes Sunday, as Chicago looks to avenge a series loss against the Reds earlier this month, in which it dropped two out of three games on the road. The Cubs have won 18 of their last 26 games and have posted a 10-1-2 record in their past 13 series. Meanwhile, Cincinnati will try to avoid back-to-back losses for the first time since May 12-14. The Reds have scored a half-dozen runs or more in three straight games but have allowed 24 runs in that span.

The pitching matchup features Tanner Roark (3-3, 3.51 ERA) vs Jose Quintana (4-3, 3.30 ERA). Roark is in his first season in Cincinnati, after spending the past six years with the Washington National. He owns a 2.78 ERA, while limiting opponents to a .205 batting average in splitting four decisions this month, after posting 4.08 and .289 marks in April. However, Roark comes in having lost back-to-back outings against the Cubs and Dodgers (4.50 ERA). Quintana will make his 10th start of the season. He allowed eight ERs (over just three innings) in his first start of 2019 but in the eight starts since, is 4-2 (team is 6-2), posting a 2.32 ERA in 50.1 innings.

I noted Cincy's woes at Wrigley (8-22 the last 30) and will add here that against lefties on the road in day games, the Reds are an abysmal 6-26 (that's an 81% "go-against") since the start of the 2018 season (Reds are averaging just 3.18 RPG). Cubs win! Cubs win!

Good luck...Larry


Age: 63 (turns 64 in November).

Years in handicapping: Larry entered his 34th year in the industry in August of 2017.

Achievements in handicapping: 1985 Castaway’s Pro Football Challenge Champion, then the most prestigious handicapping contest in Las Vegas; 1999 Stardust Invitational semi-finalist.

A member of the original cast of Proline, the nation’s longest running pre-game handicapping show on the USA-TV network (also hosted Sports Desk on the same network). Although well-known on TV for his expert game analysis and no-nonsense handicapping style, Larry may be best known for his radio work. He hosted his own syndicated call-in radio show, Sports Central. It aired live from Bally's Casino in Las Vegas in the early to mid-90s and at one time was heard in more than 100 markets.

Systems used for handicapping a game: Fundamental and statistical analysis. "I'm not typically a trend and system kind of guy," Ness says. "I look at team strengths and weaknesses and compare them. It’s an all-encompassing thing and over 30-plus years, you get good at it."

34-Club Play: It represents Larry's 34 years in the business and gets his highest star rating (10*s). Expect no more than one of these plays per month, per sport during the regular season.

LEGEND Play: Larry's often been referred to as a Las Vegas legend and he's 'borrowed' the title for his other "signature play.". Larry's LEGEND Plays were previously available to only a select group of private clients but they are now available to all, through the internet. Like his 34-Club plays, expect no more than one play per month, per sport (rated 10*s).

PERFECT STORM: Larry just added these plays the last few years and his accompanying expert analysis makes these popular plays self-explanatory (rated 9 or 10*s).

Situational Stunners: Larry's a fundamental handicapper at heart but he does pay attention to team and situational trends (especially in MLB). When his fundamental handicapping and a strong trend or situation match up, he releases a Situational Stunner. He just started releasing these plays in MLB '09 and he's expanded them since, to all sports (rated 8, 9 or 10*s).

Las Vegas Insider: Throughout his 34 years, Larry has become known as "the ultimate Las Vegas insider." The contacts he's developed over more than two decades (on both sides of the 'counter'), are arguably "unmatched!" He confers daily with 'his friends' and when "all the stars align on the same game," Larry releases an exclusive Las Vegas Insider (rated between 8 and 10*s).

Oddsmaker's Error Plays: Larry uses this term with "great respect" (and not very often), as he counts among his very closest friends many of Las Vegas' most famous and respected Sport Book directors (past and present). However, when Larry feels "the line is significantly off," he'll release one of these "not to be missed" plays (rated between 8 and 10*s).

Weekly and Weekend Wipeout Winners: Larry added this self-explanatory moniker just a few years ago. They've become immensely popular and why not? Who wouldn't want a game that has "blowout written all over it," supported by Larry's expert analysis (rated between 8 and 10*s).

Late-Breaking Plays: Larry will always go back and take a "second look" at each day's card, after posting all his games. When he finds something he missed the first time around, he'll release a Late-Breaking Play. These plays are more prevalent in sports like baseball and basketball than football (typically rated at 8 or 9*s).

Superstar Triple Play: Over the years, many of Larry's regular clients have clamored for more three-game reports. You asked for it and Larry's responded. Back in the late 1980s and into the mid 1990s, 900-numbers became "the rage." While a panel member of Proline (see above), Larry created the Superstar Triple Play. One call got you three Superstar Triple Plays (in a particular sport). For almost a decade, anywhere from 1,500 to 3,500 callers responded each weekend, when Larry offered his famous "Superstar Triple Play" pitch on Proline. Starting in 2009, Larry began going "Back to the Future!" Almost every Saturday (college) and Sunday (NFL) this football season, get three plays on a single report from Larry (many will be TV games), the originator of the "Superstar Triple Play!"

Release Times: Larry likes to release his picks early so that clients have as much time as possible to shop around. NFL and College Football plays are posted very early in the week (sometimes almost up to a week in advance.) NBA, College hoops and NHL are all posted the day before the game goes off. And the same goes for MLB, with selections posted the night before the game. Sometimes life gets in the way and Ness won't release until the morning of the game, but for the majority of the year Larry likes to say: "The earlier the better!" 

Sports and conferences he excels at handicapping: MLB is Larry's favorite sports to handicap, saying the money is in the statistics. He 'loves' the daily action and the long season. "If I had to pick one sport, I would chose baseball because you’re playing pitchers, streaks, teams that are hot and cold," Ness says. "I also love the NBA and NFL playoffs, the college bowl games plus the college basketball tourneys, which are seasons unto themselves."

Quote: "No one works any harder and my work-product speaks for itself," Ness says. "I have a no-nonsense style and my logic is easy to follow. Anyone buying my plays will know exactly what I was thinking when I made the selection. After 34 years, the Larry Ness brand is instantly recognizable and my analysis ranks with the best in the industry."
