Larry's ca$hed FIVE of his last six (83%) 10* over/under plays in college hoops (going back to Jan 26) and his featured play on Wednesday is his CBB 10* Feb Total of the Month.

*This package includes 1 NCAA-B Total pick

Larry's CBB 10* Oddsmaker's Error (pair with Total GOM)

Larry uses the term Oddsmaker's Error with great respect and NOT very often. His two most recent Oddsmaker's Error plays were Tulsa (-1) a 79-57 winner on Saturday & Valpo (-2.5) an 89-74 winner on Tuesday. Both were small favorites, GREATLY undervalued. That's the 'formula' here tonight and this Oddsmaker's Error earns a top rating of 10*s!

*This package includes 1 NCAA-B Spread pick

Larry's NBA 10* PERFECT STORM (+$12,314 s/Oct 30)

Larry's stumbled in the NBA since the break but remains a MONEY-MAKING 56-40-1, +$12,314 with all releases going back to Oct 30. This 36-year vet feels a 'storm brewing' in one NBA city on Wednesday. "Batten down the hatches" & W-I-N with tonight's 10* PERFECT STORM!

$109.0
Play Type: Free
My free play is on the NO Pelicans at 10:05 ET.

The LA Lakers have won five in row (longest current winning streak) and welcome the New Orleans Pelicans to Staple Center on Tuesday night. LA is off a two-point win over the Celtics on Sunday, as LeBron James hit the go-ahead shot with 30.4 seconds left, while Anthony Davis recorded 32 points and 13 rebounds for his sixth straight double-double (has scored at least 25 points in each contest). The win leaves the 43-12 Lakers with a five-game lead over the West's current No. 2 seed, the Denver Nuggets. The 25-32 Pelicans won 115-101 at Golden St on Sunday, as Zion Williamson scored 28 points. He's now scored 20 or more points in EIGHT straight games. The Pelicans have a tough road ahead of them, as they are three games back of the West's final playoff spot but are among a group of FIVE teams within 4 1/2 games of the eighth-seeded Grizzlies.

The Pels dropped Williamson's first two games but are 7-3 SU &ATS, since. The rookie is averaging 22.8 & 7.2 in 12 games, connecting on 58.5% overall, including 41.7% on threes. Williamson is the 'face' of the franchise but the A.D. trade with LA brought the Pelicans SF Ingram (324.3-6.3-4.3), PG Ball (11.8-6.0-6.8) and SG Hart (10.6 & 6.6). That's a pretty good 'haul.' Guard Jrue Holiday (19.4-4.7-6.8) was already an established All Star and FA Redick has done what was expected, averaging 15.4 PPG while shooting 45.2% on threes. The Pels also have big men Favors (9.3 & 10.0) and Hayes (7.7 & 4.1) plus guard Moore (9.3).

The Lakers "got their man" in A.D. (26.8 & 9.4) and along with LBJ (25.2-7.7-10.7) give LA a "Dynamic Duo" but only Kuzma (12.5 & 4.4) joins them in double digits. The Lakers are 2-0 against the Pelicans this season, with Davis dominating his ex-teammates. He scored 41 points (nine rebounds) in a 114-110 win in New Orleans on Nov 27  and then had 46 & 13 in a 1234-113 win in LA on Jan 3. Los Angeles officially signed Markieff Morris and waived injured C DeMarcus Cousins, which could give them another double-digit scorer.

Zion did not paly in either of the first two meetings with the Lakers and will surely be ready for the challenge here at Staples Center. What a showcase opportunity it is, playing in LA on TNT. "He isn't your typical 19-year-old," New Orleans head coach Alvin Gentry said after the win over Golden State about Zion. "He's a very mature kid, very respectful of his teammates and they are very respectful of him as well. He is all about winning. Just winning." The three ex-Lakers should also be primed for the contest and I'm taking the points (Lakers are just 14-12-1 ATS at home).

Good luck...Larry

Play Type: Top Premium

My 10* Revenge Rout is on Loyola-Chi at 8:00 ET.


Drake hired Darian DeVries, a longtime assistant at Creighton, as its new head coach a year ago. It was DeVries' first head coaching job and he led the Bulldogs to a 24-10 season. Drake returned four starters from that team but while the Bulldogs are 18-11 overall, they are just 8-8 in MVC play. Porter Moser's Loyola-Chicago Ramblers made that great run to the Final 4 in 2018, finishing with 32 wins. Last year's team won a more modest 20 games, after losing in the NIT. The Ramblers welcome the Bulldogs to Chicago at  19-10 overall, including 11-5 in MVC play (just ONE game back of conference-leader Northern Iowa, which is 12-4).


Drake is led by 7-0 sophomore Liam Robbins, who tops the team in scoring (14.0) and rebounding (6.7). The rest of the major contributors are all guards, with a bevy of six perimeter players chipping in between 6.0 and 11.7 PPG. That group is led by PG Penn, who averages 11.7-4.6-5.7. Three starters returned for Loyola this season and are contributing as expected. 6-9 center Krutwig leads in scoring (15.2), rebounding (8.1) and assists (4.3). FOUR guards play 20-plus minutes, chipping in between 8.9 and 13.2 PPG, led by Hall (13.2 & 4.0) and Clemons (10.0). The 6-7 Uguak (5.4 & 3.4) helps Krutwig up front.


Drake is an excellent home team (14-1) but is just 2-9 on the road, including 1-7 on the MVC road (note: lone win came at Evansville, which is 0-16 in conference play). Loyola is 13-2 at home, losing only to Coppin St back on Nov 12 as a three 'TD' favorite (?) and by three points to Davidson on Dec 22. Loyola has NOT lost at home since, winning EIGHT in a row while going 6-2 ATS. The Ramblers are an excellent defensive team (allow 62.3 PPG to rank 21st in the nation) and while they score a modest 68.8 PPG, the team shoots an impressive 50.1% from the floor (4th-best in the nation). Loyola lost at Drake just 65-62 back on Jam 7 and gets some revenge here with a convincing win that keeps them "right there" with Northern Iowa. Lay the points!

Rangers vs Islanders

My 10* Game of the Week is on the NY Islanders at 7:05 ET.


The NY Rangers and NY Islanders developed an "instant rivalry" when the Islanders joined the NHL for the 1972-73 season. The Rangers are one of the NHL's "Original Six," beginning in the 1926-27 season but when the Islanders joined the NHL, the Rangers had won just two Stanley Cups, the most recent being in 1940. It wasn't long before the Islander rose to the top of the NHL with FOUR consecutive Cup titles from 1980-83. The Rangers finally earned the franchise's third-ever Cup in 1994 but neither franchise has added to their respective 'trophy cases.' The Islanders haven't won a Cup since that 1983 season, while the Rangers are 'cup-less' since 1994. However, games between the Rangers and Islanders at the Islanders' longtime on-and-off-again home, the Nassau Coliseum, are never ordinary affairs. That won't change tonight, when the Metropolitan Division rivals meet at Nassau Veterans Memorial Coliseum. A significant trade, a pair of big-money contracts and a car accident highlighted the two teams' recent off-days, have added to some extra 'juice' to tonight's contest.


Artemi Panarin leads the Rangers in goals (31), assists (52) and points (83) but the big news was the Rangers agreeing to terms with Chris Kreider (24 goals / 45 points) on a seven-year contract to keep the former first-round forward with them for the foreseeable future. Team president John Davidson said of the contract for the 28-year-old Kreider, "Both sides worked hard on this. Both sides are very happy with the deal we've been able to put together." However, his Monday news conference took a different tone after he announced that rookie goaltender Igor Shesterkin and forward Pavel Buchnevich were involved in a car accident in Brooklyn on Sunday night. Shesterkin, who has posted a 9-1-0 record with a 2.23 GAA and .940 save percentage with the Rangers, sustained a rib fracture that is non-displaced and will be reassessed in a couple of weeks. The Rangers have won SEVEN of their last eight to claw their way back into the postseason discussion but with 70 points, remain SIX points out of the last wild card spot.


The Islanders and Blue Jackets hold down the two wild card spots with 76 points, although the Rangers have "three games "in hand" (note: both New York teams have played 61 games). The Islanders showed they are serious in their bid for the playoffs by acquiring Jean-Gabriel Pageau from Ottawa for three draft picks and he promptly signed a six-year contract with his new team. Pageau's 24 goals are two more than the Islanders' leading goal-scorer, Brock Nelson. Mat Barzal leads the Islanders in assists (34) and points (52), after setting up a pair of goals in Sunday's 4-1 victory over San Jose.


The Rangers come in a roll but the goaltender situation is now "in flux." Rookie sensation Shesterkin had become the Rangers' No. 1 goalie by winning NINE of his first 10 NHL starts and his emergence has relegated future Hall of Famer Henrik Lundqvist to third-stringer duties. Lundqvist (10-11-3, 3.12 GAA & .907 SP) will sit in favor of Alexandar Georgiev (14-12-1, 2.98 GAA  & .912 SP) on Tuesday night. The Islanders have used both Greiss (16-18-2, 2.65 GAA & .916 SP) and Varlamov (19-12-4, 2.47 GAA & .920 SP) in goal, although Varlamov  has started the last FIVE. He ended a three-game losing streak with back-to-back 4-1 wins, stopping 50 of 52 shots (.962). However, it should be noted that during his (the team's) three-game slide, he had stopped 98 of 104 (.942) shots on goal. The Islanders have split their home schedule between the Coliseum and Barclays Center in Brooklyn the last two seasons, while their new arena is built at Belmont Park along the Nassau/Queens border. That arena is expected to be concluded in time for the 2021-22 season, but no announcement has been made yet regarding where the Islanders will play next season. For tonight, I'll back the Islanders in the boisterous arena known as "The Barn!"


Good luck...Larry

Play Type: Top Premium

My 9* Oddsmaker's Error is on Valparaiso at 8:00 ET.


The 14-15 Missouri State Bears and the 15-14 Valparaiso Crusaders meet Tuesday in MVC action (both schools are 8-8) at Valpo's Athletics-Recreation Center. The Bears hired Dana Ford as their head coach in 2018, after he was an unimpressive 57-65 in four years at Tennessee St. Not sure the school should have been too surprised with last year's 16-16 and not much has changed this season, either. Matt Lottich's first season at Valpo saw the Crusaders go 24-9 (2016-17) but the next two seasons saw them finish 15-17 and 15-18. Not much has changed this season for the Crusaders, either.


The Bears are led by guard Cook (14.8 & 4.8) but the loss of PG Dixon (7.2-4.0-3.6) to season-ending shoulder surgery (last played Jan 11), has left the team with a shortage of quality perimeter players. The frontcourt is rotating five players, chipping in between 5.4 and 13.5 PPG. The top performers are 6-8 forwards Prim (13.5 & 4.8) and Da Silva (9.8 & 7.0). The Crusaders are led by freshman PG Freeman-Liberty (19.3-6.0-3.2), who gets help from a trio of guards combining for 17.5 PPG. The 6-8 Ryan Fazekas, a graduate transfer from Marquette, was lost in early January to an ankle injury but he returned in late January. He's played 38 and 37 minutes the last two games, scoring 31 points and is now the team's second-leading scorer at 11.8 PPG. Four other frontcourt players chip in between 5.9 and 9.4 PPG, led by McMillan (9.4 & 3.2) and Clay (8.7 & 4.4).


Missouri St is just 3-9 SU on the road. Two of those wins have come at Illinois St (4-12 in MVC play) and Evansville (0-16). Meanwhile, Valpo is 10-2 SU at home this season, posting a  MONEY-MAKING 8-2-1 ATS mark. Valpo is a MUCH-improved team with Fazekas back on the court, giving us great value at this price.


Good luck...Larry

SERVICE BIO

Age: 65 (turns 66 in November).

Years in handicapping: Larry entered his 36th year as a professional handicapper in August of 2019.

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 (began in 1985), the nation’s longest running pre-game handicapping show on the USA-TV network (also hosted Sports Desk on the same network from 1996-98). In then joined the panel of The Winning Edge in the early 2000s. 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 35-plus years, you get good at it."

Star Ratings: 9 and 10*s are considered "Best Bets." All other plays are rated between 6 and 8*s, depending on strength and/or price.

Release Times: Larry releases "daily sports" (MLB, NBA, NCAAB and NHL) on the day of the game. His full card is almost always available by 10:00 ET (save Late-Breaking games). In the FB season, Larry begins releasing plays as early as Tuesday. His full CFB card is typically complete by Thursday (on Friday, at the latest) and his full NFL card will be mostly complete by Friday (definitely by Saturday at 3:00 ET). 36-Club Play: It represents Larry's 36 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, via the internet. Like his 36-Club plays, expect no more than one play per month, per sport (rated 10*s). Game of the Month and Game of the Year Plays: Always rated 10*s. Las Vegas Insider: Throughout his 36 years "in the business," Larry has become known as "the ultimate Las Vegas insider." The contacts he's developed over more than three 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 7 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 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 began releasing these plays in MLB '09 and he's expanded them since,to all sports (rated from 7-10*s, based on strength and/or price for moneyline sports). PERFECT STORM: Larry just added these plays the last few years and his accompanying expert analysis makes these popular plays self-explanatory (typically rated 9 or 10*s but moneyline sports may be rated 7 or 8*s due to price). 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 7 and 10*s, depending on strength and price). 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!" Look for 3-game reports this FB season on Saturday (college) and Sunday (NFL). Get three plays on a single report from Larry (many will be TV games), the originator of the "Superstar Triple Play!". 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).

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."
