Mark Souder is having an
affair with a staffer and one of the best handicappers on earth is having an
affair with the sportsbooks.
Not even Indrani can make something this picture perfect
as Rivers is hotter than the Miss USA Rima Fahih pole dancing video.
handicapper Matt Rivers says go with the Boston Red Sox plus the
coin. They are getting 170 against the New York Yankees according to the MLB baseball odds. Only Megan
Fox leaked photos have bigger boobs than those who bet on their own.
Call me stubborn and call
me stupid because maybe I am that but Josh Beckett and the Red Sox as a $2 or
so dog? I don’t care about any factor, including how the Red Sox never seem to
beat the Yankees anymore with last night being the latest example, at this
price I’m in.
Obviously I don’t love this
play enough to make it a pay play because the Yankees really are much
better than the visitors from Boston but to get Beckett and to get still at
least a capable Red Sox club with Youkilis and Pedroia and Varitek and a few
others in this rivalry spot is a small must play.
CC Sabathia when on is as good as they come. The lefty is a horse and a beast
but he was not very good on that last outing at Comerica against the Tigers and
may be a little vulnerable here at the Stadium. I’m not at all saying how the
last start is going to be the beginning of a slide because it’s probably not
going to be but we’re still looking at getting a potential superstar in Beckett
and a very good Boston team at a gargantuan takeback.
Beckett has been awful
this season and is possibly hurt but he is still “Josh Beckett” and a guy that
should have his competitive juices more than flowing tonight. We have all seen
how great this guy can be in money situations in the postseason and I can see
the righty treat this spot as just that.
The bottom line is that no
matter how poor Beckett and his team has been this season they are still both
extremely capable and will have my backing tonight at this monster price.

and now four more fire hot locks are here for Tuesday including the
biggest totals play I have released.
As most of you know I don’t
really do totals. More times than not playing these over/unders are silly and
pretty much just 50-50 crapshoots. But every now and then, I would say once
a year at most, I will see something with a total that I just absolutely
love and hammer it home. Today is that exact scenario from PETCO Park as this
game between the Giants and Padres will either sky over the number or be a
dominant pitchers duel equaling a 400,000* Bomb. Bonus
winners as well including a pair of 200,000* Boston-Orlando plus a
100,000* Kansas City-Baltimore. Click now to purchase Matt Rivers
