    [B][I]Tuesday’s six-pack[/I][/B]

    Odds to win the 2018 World Series

    — Los Angeles Dodgers 11-2

    — Houston Astros 7-1/Cleveland Indians

    — Cleveland/New York (A)/Chicago Cubs 15-2

    — Boston Red Sox/Washington Nationals 10-1

    — St Louis Cardinals/Arizona Diamondbacks 20-1

    — Toronto Blue Jays 22-1

    ********************************************
    [B][I]
    Tuesday’s List of 13: Nobody asked me, but…….[/I][/B]

    13) Lions 30, Packers 17— Detroit wins for just 2nd time in last 26 visits to Wisconsin; Green Bay’s season is in the ashcan. Stafford threw for 361 yards, and scored TD’s in red zone.

    12) Eagles are 8-1 heading into their bye week; in the last 20 years, out of 45 teams to start a season 7-1, only the ’12 Bears, ’96 Redskins started 7-1, and then missed the playoffs.

    11) Seattle Seahawks penalties the last three games: 41 penalties for 358 yards. They need to knock those numbers down- 120 yards a game is tough to overcome.

    10) Bulls’ Zach LaVine signed a 4-year, $35M deal with adidas; he is making $3,202,217 from the Bulls this season. Why is a sneaker company paying him 273% what the Bulls pay him?

    9) Only players ever to hit a home run on Opening Day, and then in Game 7 of the World Series that same year: George Springer this year, and Yogi Berra, in 1956. Thats it.

    8) Atlanta Falcons are getting killed by bad field position; in their last four games, they lost field position by 9-7-11-16 yards.

    7) Tampa Bay’s star WR Mike Evans gets suspended for this week’s games with the Jets after his cheap shot at a Saints defender Sunday. The suspension costs Evans $290,967.37.

    Bucs also shut QB Jameis Winston down because of his sore shoulder; Tampa Bay’s season is a mess- they had very high expectations this summer.

    6) Eastern Illinois beat Illinois in one of this exhibition games for charity; surprising result, but the game doesn’t count, so Illinois may not have taken it as seriously as it should have. You know Eastern Illinois took it very seriously.

    5) Clippers/Lakers both played at home Sunday, in the Staples Center; would be curious to know how many people paid to watch both games.

    4) Miami Marlins dumped 44-year OF Ichiro Suzuki last week, possibly ending a career that will undoubtedly end with a Hall of Fame induction. He is still good enough to come off of someone’s bench; we’ll see if this is the end for Ichiro.

    3) SI.com points out that the Cincinnati Bengals have made 106 trades in their 50 years, but none of them were with the Browns or Steelers, their two biggest rivals. The AJ McCarron trade last week that the Browns butchered with their incompetence would’ve been the first one.

    2) They had four refs working a G-League basketball game on ESPNU last night; good Lord, just what we need, more refs. As an old coach once said when they went from two to three refs: “Just one more to yell at.” Now they have two more to yell at.

    1) College basketball starts Friday night, with a ton of games; more suspensions than usual early on this fall, so it is a good time to sit back, study and start to get a handle on this season. There will a lot of information to process late Friday night.

    Auburn already has two kids suspended, Texas A&M two, USC one and Southern Illinois has two kids hurt- Rhode Island had a kid arrested over the weekend- no word yet on his status. The recruiting scandal that is ongoing will probably result in more players being held out of the lineup.

    [B][I]Tweet costs Suns G Bledsoe $10K
    November 6, 2017[/I][/B]

    Phoenix Suns guard Eric Bledsoe was fined $10,000 by the NBA for a tweet from last month in which he said, “I don’t want to be here,” general manager Ryan McDonough told AZCentral.com.

    McDonough confirmed the comment on Sunday to AZCentral.com but declined to elaborate. The NBA had not announced the fine as of Monday afternoon.

    Bledsoe was sent home by McDonough on Oct. 23, one day after his tweet appeared on social media just hours before the Suns fired coach Earl Watson and replaced him with interim coach Jay Triano.

    Bledsoe later tried to put that tweet in context, although McDonough wasn’t buying the excuse.

    “He said he was at a hair salon. … I didn’t believe that to be true,” McDonough said last month. “He won’t be with us going forward.”

    Suns veteran forward Jared Dudley told AZCentral.com that he understands the NBA’s position.

    “The league doesn’t want to set a precedent of players going off on social media,” Dudley said. “If you ask (Bledsoe), he probably regrets doing that. He probably would have done something in a different manner.

    “I just think in general you can’t even demand a trade when you’re doing interviews. Just keep it more in house.”

    Bledsoe is averaging 15.7 points, 2.3 rebounds and 3.0 assists in three games for the Suns this season — his fifth with the team. He is entering his eighth NBA season and owns career averages of 13.1 points, 3.8 rebounds and 4.6 assists.

    **************************

    [B][I]Report: Bucks to acquire G Bledsoe from Suns
    November 7, 2017[/I][/B]

    The Milwaukee Bucks are close to acquiring disgruntled point guard Eric Bledsoe from the Phoenix Suns in exchange for center Greg Monroe and a first-round draft pick, ESPN reported on Tuesday.

    Bledsoe has been kept away from the Suns since being sent home by general manager Ryan McDonough on Oct. 23, one day after the 27-year-old tweeted, “I don’t wanna be here.” That tweet came hours before Phoenix fired coach Earl Watson and replaced him with interim coach Jay Triano.

    Bledsoe was fined $10,000 by the NBA that tweet, McDonough told AZCentral.com on Sunday.

    Bledsoe later tried to put that tweet in context, although McDonough wasn’t buying the excuse.

    “He said he was at a hair salon. … I didn’t believe that to be true,” McDonough said last month.

    Bledsoe is averaging 15.7 points, 2.3 rebounds and 3.0 assists in three games for the Suns this season — his fifth with the team. He is entering his eighth NBA season and owns career averages of 13.1 points, 3.8 rebounds and 4.6 assists.

    Bledsoe would join a Bucks backcourt with 2016 Rookie of the Year Malcolm Brogdon, Matthew Dellavedova and Jason Terry.

    Monroe is averaging 6.8 points and 5.0 rebounds in five games this season. The 27-year-old is averaging 14.0 points and 8.7 rebounds in 543 career contests with Detroit and Milwaukee since being selected by the Pistons with the seventh overall pick of the 2010 draft.

    [B][I]Tuesday’s Tip Sheet
    November 7, 2017[/I][/B]

    [B][I]Game of the Night: Grizzlies at Blazers – 10:05 PM EST[/I][/B]

    Memphis (6-4 SU, 5-5 ATS) continues its five-game road trip on Tuesday following a split at Staples Center against the Los Angeles teams over the weekend. The Grizzlies had seven players in double-figures in Saturday’s 113-104 triumph over the Clippers as five-point underdogs, while holding L.A. to 4-of-26 shooting from three-point range. However, David Fizdale’s club fell short on Sunday night against the Lakers, 107-102 as 2 ½-point favorites, as Memphis trailed by 18 points heading into the fourth quarter.

    Portland (6-4 SU, 4-5-1 ATS) is in the midst of a stretch of 11 of 12 games played at the Moda Center. The Blazers are fresh off a pair of home victories over the Lakers and Thunder, as Terry Stotts’ team is searching for their first three-game winning streak of the season. Portland ended an 0-5 ATS run in Sunday’s 103-99 victory over Oklahoma City as three-point underdogs, led by a 36-point, 13-assist effort from guard Damian Lillard. The cover was only the second in six opportunities at home, but Portland’s record as a home favorite sits at 3-2 SU and 1-4 ATS.

    The Blazers captured two of three matchups from the Grizzlies last season, as Portland topped Memphis in the lone meeting at the Moda Center, 112-109 in January as one-point favorites. Since Memphis eliminated Portland in the playoffs in 2015, the Blazers have won four of the last seven matchups, including a 2-1 home record by Portland in this stretch.
    [B][I]
    Central Struggles[/I][/B]

    Both the Cavaliers and Bucks were playoff teams last season and Cleveland is vying for a fourth consecutive Eastern Conference championship. But it’s been a rough start for these Central division squads through the first three weeks of the season. The Cavs (4-6 SU, 2-8 ATS) have already lost to the Hawks, Magic, Knicks, and Pacers at home, while falling to Atlanta on Sunday as 11 ½-point favorites, 117-115. In fact, Cleveland has yet to cover at Quicken Loans Arena this season by compiling a dreadful 0-6 ATS home mark.

    Milwaukee (4-5 SU, 3-5-1 ATS) has slipped of late also by dropping three in a row, while losing the first two on its four-game road trip to Charlotte and Detroit. Giannis Antetokounmpo has failed to score over 30 points in each of the past three games for the Bucks, after topping the 30-point mark in five of his first six games. The Bucks were rolled by the Cavaliers in their last matchup on October 20 at home, 116-97, while Cleveland owns a dominating 7-1 SU and 5-3 ATS record against Milwaukee since November 2015.
    [B][I]
    Clipped Off[/I][/B]

    The Clippers (5-4 SU, 5-4 ATS) started the season on fire with four consecutive wins. However, L.A. stumbled to a 1-4 SU/ATS mark on its recent five-game homestand, including back-to-back setbacks to Memphis and Miami. The Clippers hit the highway for eight of their next nine games, including a three-game swing this week through San Antonio, Oklahoma City, and New Orleans. L.A. owns a perfect 2-0 SU/ATS record away from Staples Center, while taking three of four meetings from San Antonio last season, including a pair of victories at AT&T Center.

    The Spurs (6-4 SU, 5-5 ATS) have managed to keep their heads above water without MVP candidate Kawhi Leonard in the lineup. Leonard is out indefinitely with a quad injury as San Antonio seeks its third consecutive victory following wins over Charlotte and Phoenix. San Antonio remains a tremendous home team at 4-1 with the lone loss coming to defending champion Golden State, while the Spurs are 5-0 this season when scoring at least 100 points and 1-4 when held to 99 or fewer points.

    [B][I]Garden Party[/I][/B]

    Watch out for the Knicks! That is not a joke after New York (5-4 SU, 5-4 ATS) rallied from a 19-point deficit on Sunday to shock Indiana, 108-101 behind 40 points from Kristaps Porzingis. The Knicks have won five of six games since an 0-3 start, as New York looks to finish off its five-game homestand with four victories. Charlotte invades Madison Square Garden tonight as the Hornets are coming off a pair of losses to the Spurs and Wolves following a three-game winning streak. The home team captured all three meetings last season, as New York beat Charlotte twice in Manhattan by a combined five points.

    [B][I]Thorne in the Throne[/I][/B]

    Sacramento (1-8 SU, 2-6-1 ATS) split its first two games of the season, but hasn’t won since as the Kings return to Golden 1 Center to host Oklahoma City as double-digit underdogs. The Kings are riding a seven-game losing streak, while coming off an 0-3 road swing at Indiana, Boston, and Detroit. Sacramento has yet to win a home game (0-3 SU, 1-2 ATS), but has beaten OKC in its last two home matchups since 2016.

    The Thunder (4-5 SU, 4-5 ATS) are seeking consistency following the offseason acquisitions of Carmelo Anthony and Paul George, but OKC heads to California’s capital off back-to-back losses to Boston and Portland. Billy Donovan’s team was limited to below 100 points in each of those defeats, while Anthony was ejected from Sunday’s setback to the Blazers after committing a flagrant foul. OKC is in the midst of a four-game UNDER streak, while winning and covering in its first two opportunities this season as a double-digit favorite.

    [B][I]Middle of the Pack[/I][/B]

    Both the Pelicans and Pacers have started 5-5 SU and 6-4 ATS on the season as the two clubs hook up in Indianapolis. New Orleans has failed to bust the 100-point mark in the last four games, but the Pelicans are seeking their third consecutive win on their road trip following victories at Dallas and Chicago. The Pelicans have been a solid play away from the Big Easy by going 4-1 SU/ATS on the road since losing the season opener at Memphis.

    Indiana has won three of four games at Bankers Life Fieldhouse, but limp back home following road defeats at Philadelphia and New York. The Pacers allowed 131 and 114 points in its first two home contests, but improved drastically of late by giving up 94 and 83 points in its last two games in the Hoosier State. Dating back to 2012, the Pacers have owned the Pelicans by winning nine of the last 10 matchups, including the last five in Indianapolis.

    [B][I]Head-to-Head Matchups[/I][/B]

    — The Mavericks travel to Washington trying to snap a six-game losing streak, while seeking its first win away from Dallas this season. Last season, the Mavs swept the Wizards, as Dallas has captured nine of the past 10 meetings with Washington since 2012.

    — The Bulls defeated the Raptors in 11 consecutive meetings from February 2014 through February 2017 until Toronto finally ended its hex in a two-point win last March. Toronto whipped Chicago last month, 117-101 as the two teams hook up tonight at the Air Canada Center. Since losing at Toronto, the Bulls have covered three straight road contests.

    — The Nuggets seek the season sweep of the Nets after a 13-point victory at Barclays Center on October 29. Five straight meetings have sailed OVER the total, including the last two matchups at Pepsi Center. Since beating Sacramento last month, the Nuggets have stumbled to a 2-5 ATS record in their last seven as a favorite.

    — Utah welcomes in Philadelphia seeking its 10th consecutive victory over the 76ers since 2013. Six of the past seven matchups have stayed UNDER the total, including the previous three in Salt Lake City. The Sixers are riding a four-game winning streak, while covering each of their past six games overall.

    [B][I]Tuesday’s Best Bet
    November 7, 2017[/I][/B]

    [B]Tuesday NBA Best Bet
    Oklahoma City Thunder vs Sacramento Kings
    [/B]
    Things haven’t really gone according to plan for the OKC Thunder out of the gates this year. OKC enters play tonight with a sub-.500 record (4-5 SU) after nine games and are still struggling with a team identity and which one of their stars – Westbrook, George or Anthony – is the defacto “closer” late in games.

    But while these early season issues may be new to the Thunder, they aren’t new to basketball bettors as OKC’s problems are almost identical to the ones the Miami Heat had early on a few years ago when LeBron and Chris Bosh joined D-Wade.

    LeBron and company eventually got things figured out then and the same should hold true for the Thunder this year. But until that happens on a regular basis, Thunder games might be a little tougher to handicap – at least from a side perspective – because it’s tough to know just what team will show up on a nightly basis.

    Tonight, OKC is a double-digit road favorite against a bad Sacramento team that’s gone 0-7 SU and 0-6-1 ATS in their last seven games.

    [B]BetOnline.ag Odds: Oklahoma City (-11); Total set at 203.5[/B]

    Having lost two in a row to quality teams in Boston and Portland, a date with the Sacramento Kings could be just what the doctor ordered for OKC tonight. OKC failed to put up 100 or more in each of those two recent losses, and the one to Boston was especially disappointing because the Thunder actually blew a 18-point halftime lead that night.

    It’s one thing to blow an 18-point lead and say not cover a spread of -6.5 but still win outright, but it’s another thing when you blow that lead completely by getting outscored by 25 points in the final two quarters to lose outright by 7. For all of OKC’s ups and downs already this year, that defeat had to be a low point. But like I said, a date with the Kings tonight could help cure some of those issues, especially on the offensive end.

    During Sacramento’s current seven-game losing streak they’ve allowed 100+ six times, and all six of those were their most recent games. In the two Kings home games during that stretch opponents put up an average of 112 points against Sacramento and OKC has comparable talent to the likes of Washington and New Orleans who were in town for those contests. So for an OKC offense that is struggling a bit right now, there simply might be more then enough quality shots to go around against this porous Kings defense.

    Yet, while scoring may come easier then it has of late for the Thunder, I don’t think I’m ready to trust this team laying double-digits on the road. That blown lead to Boston (although at home) was a bit of a warning sign that this team still needs to build a lot of chemistry, and it’s games like this where guys can go out and knock down some easy shots right from the outset that helps that process.

    But like I said earlier, until I see some a bit more consistency from OKC, or at least in this specific case the number is a bit more reasonable, I’m not going to be touching their sides – either on or against them.

    But tonight’s total of 203.5 is the play I’m looking to attack as too many bettors out there believe the struggles of both offenses will continue tonight. VegasInsider.com currently has just below 70% of the action on the low side of this total, a number that’s been bouncing up and down since opening. With Sacramento failing to top 100 in their last four games (and failing to top 90 in three of those four) and OKC not reaching the century mark in two straight, this number would seem a little high to some.

    However, OKC has put it on poor defensive teams this year already with 113 and 116 scored in two games vs Minnesota, 114 against Indiana, 110 against Milwaukee, and 101 against a Bulls team in a 32-point win that saw the Thunder shut things down by the time the 4th quarter began. Had that not been the case that 101 number would have easily been much higher.

    Sacramento’s defense exists in a similar realm to those squads and with the need OKC has for a strong performance, I expect 110+ from them tonight. Even the oddsmakers have listed OKC’s team total at 107.5 at BetOnline.ag, so getting to that 110+ range is a definite possibility.

    But we will need the Kings to pull their weight here as well, and while the Thunder’s defense has been great so far this year – 2nd in points allowed per game (97.1) – this has the feel of a game where both teams up the tempo a bit and try to shoot the lights out against each other.

    OKC has to feel like the supremely talented team (they are) and should be able to win with their offense alone, while Sacramento as a hefty home dog has nothing to really lose by going out there and chucking up quick shots for 48 minutes. If more of them go down then not the Kings will put even more pressure on OKC to match them down the stretch.

    OKC is 5-1 O/U in their last six against a team with a losing record, and this game should end up following suit, as both teams reach triple digits with the Thunder pulling away late.

    [B]Best Bet: OKC/Sacramento Over 203.5[/B]

    [B][I]NBA roundup: Mavericks finally get a road win
    November 8, 2017[/I][/B]

    WASHINGTON — Harrison Barnes scored 31 points as the Dallas Mavericks, owners of the NBA’s worst record, upset the Washington Wizards 113-99 on Tuesday night.

    Dennis Smith had 22 points and Wesley Matthews 14 for the Mavericks, who had lost six games in a row and were winless in five previous road games.

    John Wall had 23 points and 14 assists for the Wizards (5-5) in his return to the lineup. Wall sat out Washington’s 107-96 win at Toronto on Sunday after injuring his left shoulder Friday in a home loss to the Cleveland Cavaliers.
