Saints vs Ravens
+3 -118 at BMaker
Play Type: Free

My free play is on the NO Saints at 4:05 ET

The New Orleans Saints opened the season with back-to-back home games in which they were 10-point favorites and almost lost them both! New Orleans lost 48-40 in Week 1 to Tampa Bay and then needed a miracle against Cleveland in Week 2, escaping with a 21-18 win. However, the too-close-for-comfort win over the Browns was a 'wake-up call' for the Saints and they enter this game not only 4-1 but coming off a bye-week, as well. The Baltimore Ravens were the NFL's lone unbeaten team in the preseason (5-0, including a Hall of Fame Game win) and then crushed the Bills in Week 1, 47-3. Baltimore has cooled off a bit but does enter this game 4-2, tied with the Bengals for the AFC North lead.

The ageless Drew Bress is completing 77.9 percent of his passes with 11 TDs and no interceptions this season in 190 attempts. In fact, he has not thrown an interception in his last six regular-season games, the longest such streak of his career (covers 232 pass attempts). Brees' QB rating is an NFL-high 122.3 and he is just one TD pass away from reaching 500 for his career. "It's a lot of TDs and a lot of games and a lot of passes, but you take them one at a time and you just focus on winning the game and scoring points, regardless of if I am handing it off to one of these guys are throwing to one of our guys," Brees told reporters. "We focus on winning games and the rest of that stuff kind of takes care of itself. Numbers add up." The Saints are averaging an NFL-high 36.0 PPG.

Basically, the Ravens have won with their defense for years. The 2018 season is no different, as the Ravens have allowed the fewest points per game (12.8) and fewest yards per game (270.8) in the NFL. Baltimore also leads the league in sacks (25), following a franchise-record 11 in a 21-0 win over the Tennessee Titans a week ago. Baltimore's offense is better than average, ranking 9th in total yards (393.0 YPG) and 12th in scoring (25.5 PPG). QB Flacco is keeping mistakes to a minimum, with four INTs while averaging a whopping 44 attempts per game (he has thrown nine TD passes).

This is a classic matchup between the NFL's top-ranked defense and one of the league's best offenses. Surprisingly, the Ravens are the only team Brees has never beaten, owning an 0-4 record. However, the Saints are on the short list of Super Bowl contenders and the league's highest-scoring offense has to be pleased that RB Mark Ingram made his season debut following a four-game suspension by rushing for two TDs in the Saints' Week 5 MNF 43-19 win over the Redskins. Simply put, I'm taking offense over defense in this one.

Good luck...Larry

Flames vs Rangers
-127 at betonline
Play Type: Top Premium

My 10* GAME OF THE WEEK is on the Calgary Flames (7:05 EST).

Calgary looks to bounce back off a 5-3 home loss to Nashville. The Rangers return home off a 4-3 OT loss in Washington, a game in which it gave up a big lead late.

This is a “double revenge” contests for the Flames, as New York somehow managed to take both meetings last season.

Calgary is fifth in the league in scoring with 3.71 GPG. Mike Smith is 3-3 with a 3.38 GAA on the season.

New York is ranked 25th in scoring with just 2.43 GPG, while ranked 22nd in goals allowed in conceding 3.43. Clearly this isn’t a recipe for long-term success.

Goaltender Henrik Lundqvist is 2-4 with a  2.31 GAA so far. 

I’ll point out though that Calgary is 48-33 (+6.4 units) against teams with losing records the last two seasons, while New York is just 38-54 (-15.1 units) against clubs with winning records in the same span.

I think Calgary is the much better team and I look for it to find a way to get the job done at the end of the night in The Big Apple.

Good luck…Larry

Warriors vs Nuggets
+3½ -110 at pinnacle
Play Type: Top Premium

My 10* GAME OF THE WEEK is on the Denver Nuggets (8:00 EST).

Denver destroyed the Suns at home last night and I think it’ll carry that momentum over here.

It’s the start of the season, so the “fatigue” factor on the second game of the back-to-back is a “non-factor” in my opinion. 

Golden State has won its first two games of the regular season, including a thrilling buzzer-beater over Utah on Friday. But I think the Warriors will stumble in the thin air of Mile high on Sunday night.

Steph Curry and Kevin Durant combined for 69 points in the win over the Jazz. It was a bitter fight to the end and Golden State is clearly “lucky” to have won it on a tip back from Jonas Jerebko at the buzzer. DeMarcus Cousins and Andre Igoudala remain on the sidelines injured.

The Nuggets got a triple-double from Nikola Jokic last night with 35 points, 11 assists and 12 boards. Denver has plenty of talent and I think it’ll take the two-time defending champs down to the wire. 

I’ll point out as well that Golden State is just 50-51 ATS in its last 101 after scoring 115 points or more in its previous contest, while Denver is 40-30 ATS in its last 70 as an underdog.

Grab the points, play on the Nuggets.

Good luck…Larry

Bengals vs Chiefs
+6 -115 at Bovada
Play Type: Premium

My 9* Sunday Magic is on the Cincinnati Bengals (8:20 EST).

This one has the feel of whichever team has its hands on the ball last is going to come out on top and because of that, I’m going to recommend grabbing as many points as you can.

Cincinnati will be hungry to get back into the winners circle here after a 28-21 loss at home to Pittsburgh, while KC looks poised for a letdown here in my opinion after its 43-40 loss in New England last Sunday night.

The Bengals are averaging 29 PPG and they’re conceding the 23rd most points. QB Andy Dalton has 1,674 passing yards and a respectable 14/7 TD/INT. 

The Chiefs are averaging 35.8 PPG, but they’re 32nd in the league in total yards allowed per game. 

I’ll point out as well that the Bengals are already 3-1 ATS this season as an underdog and 6-3 ATS in their last nine as an underdog in the 3.5 to 9.5 points range, while KC is still only 1-3 ATS in its last four against the AFC North.

After a hard-fought loss to the Pats, I think the Chiefs are “running on empty.” I like the Bengals high-flying offense to keep this one competitive. Grab the points.

Good luck…Larry

Cowboys vs Redskins
+2 -115 at BMaker
Play Type: Top Premium

My 10* 35-Club Play is on the Dallas Cowboys (4:25 EST).

Washington sits atop the NFC East, but each team comes in with identical 3-3 records. To say this is an important game would be an understatement. 

Washington has looked great at times this year and pretty pedestrian in others this season. Dallas has struggled, but it broke out in a big way last week and I think it’ll carry that momentum over into this one.

Dallas’ QB Dak Prescott led his team to a 40-7 win over Jacksonville last week, going 17 of 27 for 183 yards and two TDs. WR Cole Beasley had two TD catches and 101 yards on the night. RB Ezekiel Elliot had 106 yards rushing and a 15-yard TD run as well. 

The Dallas defense looked great, limiting the Jags to just 204 yards of total offense, while also forcing two turnovers.

Overall the Cowboys are averaging 20.5 PPG and conceding 17.2. 

The Redskins are averaging 21.2 PPG and conceding 20.8. Last week they held on for a 23-17 victory over the Panthers as Alex Smith would go for 163 yards and two TDs. RB Adrian Peterson would post 97 yards on 17 carries.

I’ll point out though that Washington is a poor 1-6 ATS in its last seven vs. the NFC East and only 1-7 ATS in its last eight following a SU victory. 

Dallas on the other hand is interestingly 5-1 ATS in its last six after posting more than 150 yards rushing in its previous game. 

The Boys have covered in five of the last seven in this series and the underdog has covered in 30 of the last 40 meetings. 

Grab the points.

Good luck…Larry

Panthers vs Eagles
+4½ -105 at pinnacle
Play Type: Premium

My 8* Las Vegas Insider is on the Carolina Panthers (1:00 EST).

Carolina comes in off a 23-17 loss to the Redskins on the road, while the Eagles enter off a 34-13 road win over the Giants (I had Philly in that one.) 

Note that this is a revenge game for Carolina as Philadelphia won 28-23 on the road last year.

Overall the Panthers are averaging 24.2 PPG and conceding 22.8. RB Christian McCaffrey has 349 yards and he leads the fourth ranked rushing unit in the league. In last week’s loss Cam Newton was solid in defeat with 275 yards, two TD’ and an INT.

Philadelphia looked a lot better last week, but I’m going to caution in reading too much into the victory over the hapless Giants. Newton and the Panthers are an entirely different “animal.” 

Eagles’ QB Carson Wentz was a stand-out last week with 278 yards, three TDs and no INTs. Overall Philadelphia is averaging 22.8 PPG and conceding 19.5. 

I’ll point out thought agh Carolina is 9-5 ATS in its last 14 as an underdog, while Philadelphia is only 6-7 ATS in its last 13 as a favorite in the 3.5 to 9.5 points range.

The Panthers desperately need a road victory to keep pace with their division and I think they catch the defending champs “flat footed” here. Grab the points.

Good luck…Larry

Browns vs Bucs
-3 -111 at pinnacle
Play Type: Top Premium

My 10* Wipeout Winner is on the Tampa Bay Buccaneers (1:00 EST).

Tampa looks to get back on track at home after three straight losses and take advantage of a Browns team which enters off a blowout loss at home to the Bolts.

Baker Mayfield’s numbers have declined steadily each game he’s played. He doesn’t have much help either throwing to the likes of Antonio Callaway, Jarvis Landry and Damion Ratley. Note that no pass catcher has more than one TD on the team.

For the record, Mayfield has four TDs and five INTs. Last week he was held to 47.8 percent passing with one TD. 

Tampa comes back home desperate for a win as well after last week’s 34-29 loss to the Falcons. The defense has fallen apart of late, allowing 439.8 YPG, but clearly the unit catches a big break to bounce back this week facing Cleveland’s anemic attack. 

The Bucs’ offense looked a lot better with Jameis Winston back under center last week though and I think that momentum gets carried over here.

Note as well that Tampa is 9-3 ATS in its last 12 after allowing more than 350 yards in its previous game, while Cleveland is 3-10-1 ATS in its last 14 on the road.

I think this is going to be a blowout from start to finish. Lay the points.

Good luck…Larry

Patriots vs Bears
UNDER 49½ -109 Lost
Play Type: Premium

My 9* Total is on the under Pats/Bears (1:00 EST).

New England enters off a high-scoring shoot-out victory at home over the Chiefs and I think it’ll be more conservative here in this difficult road venue Sunday afternoon. 

Chicago sports one of the best defensive fronts in the league with pass rusher Khalil Mack leading the charge. 

The Pats now also have a legitimate RB threat in Sony Michel, who I expect to see a lot of action today. Last week he had 106 rushing yards with two TD’s. 

Last week the Dolphins’ Brock Osweiler had 380 passing yards and two TD’s against Chicago. But performances like that have been few and far between for the Bears’ defense and a return to form in this important game and on home field is imminent in my opinion. 

I’ll point out as well that New England has seen the total go under the number in five of its last seven when the line in the game is set between +3 and -3, while Chicago has seen the total dip below the posted number in 16 of its last 26 as an underdog and in 11 of its last 17 at home.

For all the reasons listed above, play the under.

Good luck…Larry

Nevada vs Hawaii
-3½ -105 at BMaker
Play Type: Top Premium

My 10* ABSOLUTE BLOWOUT on Hawaii (11:55 EST).

Nevada is 3-4 overall and 1-2 in Mountain West play. It most recently lost its second straight, most recently a 31-27 setback to Boise State.

The Wolfpack were out gained by a whopping 506-386 margin. QB Ty Gangi was just 24 of 42 for 204 yards, two TDs and an INT. 

Overall Nevada is averaging 31.6 PPG and conceding 33.6. 

Hawaii on the other hand is 6-2, including 3-0 in Conference action. The Warriors come in off a 49-23 non-conference loss to BYU this past Saturday (I had the Cougars in that one!) WR John Ursua had 89 yards and a TD. QB Cole McDonald has 26 TDs and three INTs on the year.

Overall Hawaii is averaging 36.5 PPG and it’s conceding 32. 

I think Nevada is overmatched on both sides of the ball today. The Wolfpack also come in with zero momentum and they’ve been struggling away from friendly confines as well.

The Warriors can smell the blood in the water in my opinion (note as well that Hawaii is 7-2 ATS in its last nine after allowing 48 points or more in its previous contest.) 

Lay the points and expect a rout.

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."
