Play Type: Premium

At 8:10 PM ET on Tuesday, we will be playing Under the Total in the game between the Boston Red Sox (917) and the Minnesota Twins (918) listing both starting pitchers Chris Sale and Jose Berrios. THE SITUATION: Boston (49-24) begins this series coming off a 9-3 win in Seattle on Sunday. Minnesota (31-37) enters this game after they lost in Cleveland to the Indians by a 4-1 score.

REASONS TO TAKE UNDER THE TOTAL: The Red Sox have played 6 of their last 8 games Under the Total after a win — and they have also played 6 straight games Under the Total after scoring at least five runs in their last game. Additionally, Boston has played 4 straight games Under the Total after an off-day. The Red Sox stay on the road where they have played 13 of their last 18 road games Under the Total against teams with a losing record — and they have also played 8 of their last 9 games Under the Total against teams with a losing record overall. They give the ball to Sale who is 6-4 with a 2.75 ERA and a 0.97 WHIP in fifteen starts. The left-hander has been even better on the road where he owns a 2.56 ERA along with a 0.87 WHIP and an opponent’s batting average of .179 in nine starts. Boston has played 5 straight Unders on the road with Sale facing a team with a losing record. He should fare well against this Twins team that has played 8 of their last 9 games Under the Total against left-handed starting pitchers. Minnesota (31-37) has seen the Under go 5-1-1 in thinner last 7 games at home — and the Under is also 5-2-1 in their last 8 games against teams with a winning percentage over 60%. They counter with Jose Berrios who is 7-5 with a 3.51 ERA and a 0.95 WHIP in fourteen starts. The right-hander has been more effective at home where he owns a 3.12 ERA with a 0.77 WHIP and an opponent’s batting average of .179 in eight starts. The Under is 6-1-1 in the Twins’ last 8 home games with Berrios facing a team with a winning record. He faces a Red Sox team that has played 6 of their last 8 games Under the Total against right-handed starting pitchers.

FINAL TAKE: This shapes up to be a pitcher’s duel. 10* MLB Tuesday Daily Discounted Deal with Under the Total in the game between the Boston Red Sox (917) and the Minnesota Twins (918) listing both starting pitchers Chris Sale and Jose Berrios. Best of luck for us — Frank.

Arizona (40-32) won the opening game of this series last night with their 7-4 victory. The Diamondbacks have then played 4 of their last 5 games Over the Total after a win. Arizona has also played 4 of their last 5 games Over the Total on the road. Los Angeles has seen the Over go 5-0-1 in their last 6 games after a loss. The Over is also 3-0-1 in the Angels’ last 4 games against teams with a winning record. Take the Over while listing both starting pitchers. Best of luck for us — Frank.

$100
Play Type: Top Premium

At 10:05 PM ET on Tuesday, we will be playing the Arizona Diamondbacks (927) plus the +1.5 Run-Line versus the Los Angeles Angels (928) listing both starting pitchers Matt Kock and Felix Pena. THE SITUATION: Arizona (40-32) has won eight of their last eleven games with their 7-4 win over the Angels last night. Los Angeles (38-35) has lost three straight games as well as seven o father last eight contests.

REASONS TO TAKE THE DIAMONDBACKS PLUS THE +1.5 RUN-LINE: Arizona has won 5 of their last 7 games are a victory — and they have won 5 of their last 7 games after scoring at least five runs in their last game. Additionally, the Diamondbacks have won 4 straight games on the road. Furthermore, Arizona has been dangerous underdogs who have won 15 of their last 21 games when priced in the +100 to +150 price range — and they have won 7 of their last 11 road games as a dog priced in the +125 to +175 range. They give the ball to Koch who is 5-3 with a 4.09 ERA and a 1.17 WHIP in eleven starts. The right-hander has been more effective on the road where he owns a 3.93 ERA and .250 opponent’s batting average in three starts as compared to his 4.15 ERA and .253 opponent’s batting average at home. The Diamondbacks have won their last 4 games with Koch on the hill. Los Angeles has lost 5 of their last 6 games after a loss — and they have lost 5 of their last 6 games after allowing at least five runs in their last game. Additionally, the Angels have played six straight Overs — and they have then lost 13 of their last 18 games after playing at least four straight games Over the Total. LA has also lost a decisive 14 of their last 17 home games against teams with a winning record on the road. They counter with Pena making his first major league start of his career after pitching 2 2/3 innings in relief where he allowed three runs and five hits. The 28-year-old right-hander has been mediocre in Triple-A this season where he has a 1-2 record with a 3.51 ERA. He faces a hot-hitting Arizona lineup led by a Woke Paul Goldschmidt who is 27 of 69 (.426) over his last seventeen games while crushing seven homers with 18 RBIs over that span. The Diamondbacks are scoring 5.9 Runs-Per-Game over their last seven games with a .263 batting average along with a .336 On-Base Percentage and an OPS of .775 over that span. Arizona has won 6 of their last 8 games against right-handed starting pitchers.

FINAL TAKE: The slumping Angels with an unproven rookie pitcher making his first Major League start in his career represent very shaky favorites. The Diamondbacks have been good as an underdog — and with them priced no higher than -150 with the advantageous +1.5 Run-Line, let’s attack. 25* MLB Pre-All Star Break Tuesday ESPN Run-Line of the Year with the  Arizona Diamondbacks (927) plus the +1.5 Run-Line versus the Los Angeles Angels (928) listing both starting pitchers Matt Kock and Felix Pena. Best of luck for us — Frank.

Egypt vs Russia

$140.0
Play Type: Top Premium

At 2:00 PM ET on Tuesday, we will be playing Egypt (9448) plus the +0.5 Goal-Line versus Russia (9449). THE SITUATION: Russia (1-0-0) enjoyed the most impressive victory in the opening round of the World Cup with their 5-0 win over Saudi Arabia. Egypt (0-0-1) lost a heartbreaking 1-0 loss to Uruguay after surrendering a late goal in the 89th minute.

REASONS TO TAKE EGYPT PLUS THE +0.5 GOAL-LINE: The dominant effort by Russia probably was a stronger statement regarding the lack of quality with the Saudi Arabia side than it does about the Russians. Remember, the Bears won only one of their last eight friendlies entering this World Cup. The Russian national team had some encouraging performances last summer when they were the host country in the Confederations’ Cup in a 1-0 loss to Portugal and a 2-1 loss to Mexico in the Group Stage. But the fact remains that the Bears did not advance into the Knockout Stage in either the 2016 Euro or in last summer’s tournament. They scored only five goals in those six matches — so seeing the Bears equal that number in just one match is quite surprising. This win over Saudi Arabia was their first victory since October of 2017. I expect a big letdown from this team — and the first-half injury to starting midfielder Alan Dzagoev makes things more challenging for this Russian team that has a roster consisting of players almost entirely from the far-from-elite Russian professional league. Egypt played a surprisingly good match on Friday in their 1-0 loss to Uruguay. The Pharaohs’ defense starved the two superstar Uruguayan forwards in Luis Suarez and Edinson Cavani of scoring opportunities. Manager Hector Cuper had his team very well organized despite the absence of their talisman Mohamed Salah who was did not take the pitch with his injured shoulder that he suffered from the Champions League Final last month. This is a must-win match for Egypt for their chances to advance to the Knockout Stage — but this should be a confident team after their near-miss with Uruguay and with Salah likely to play in this match. While I was surprised that Cuper did not use Salah as a substitute last week, the original projection when he was injured in his Liverpool match versus Real Madrid was that he would be out for three weeks — making him due to return for this match with Russia. Salah is one of the best players in the world after his transcendent debut in the English Premier League. It is difficult to imagine what Russian player will have the skills to keep up with him on the pitch.

FINAL TAKE: I suspect that Russia will never be more overvalued than they are after their opening victory over a Saudi team that might be the worst side in this tournament. I think Egypt has a great chance to win this match outright with Salah healthy again — but take the +0.5 goals for some very valuable insurance in case this match ends in a draw. 25* World Cup Group A Match of the Year is with Egypt (9448) plus the +0.5 Goal-Line versus Russia (9449). Best of luck for us — Frank.

$100
Play Type: Premium

At 8:00 AM ET on Wednesday, we will be playing Morocco (9451) plus the Goal-Line versus Portugal (9452). THE SITUATION: Portugal (0-1-0) enters their second match in Group B play coming off a dramatic 3-3 draw with Spain last Friday. Morocco (0-0-1) looks to pick themselves off the mat from a devastating 1-0 loss to Iran on Friday.

REASONS TO TAKE MOROCCO PLUS THE GOAL-LINE: Portugal was carried by Cristiano Ronaldo who produced a hat trick to rob Spain of the three points with a victory in their opening match. The Seleccao managed to possess the ball for just 39% of that contest. At first glance, it might look easy to lay (at least) the goal with Portugal given the dynamic powers of Ronaldo on the pitch. However, remember that he entered this World Cup with three career goals in two previous tournaments — so he doubled that amount against Spain. The Seleccao may be the reigning 2016 Euro champions but only their Semifinals match with an injured Wales side was decided by more than one goal. They settled for draws in all three of their Group Stage matches while scoring no more than one goal in five of those seven matches. In last year’s Confederations Cup, Portugal scored nine goals — but four of those came in one match against an overmatched New Zealand side. The Seleccao grinds out low-scoring matches relying on the talents of Ronaldo to pull out wins (or draws) under manager Fernando Santos. The scoring fest which was their first match with Spain perhaps speaks more to their leaky aging backline. Morocco did not allow an Iranian player to score in their match as it was an own-goal from a header off a corner kick that accidentally made the difference late in stoppage play. The Atlas Lions controlled the time of possession by a 64% to 36% margin while also outshooting the Iranians by a 13 to 8 margin. Morocco remains a dangerous team that had won six of their last seven matches (including friendlies) entering this tournament. They were unbeaten in their qualifying matches while not surrendering a goal — so it should be difficult for Portugal to score on them.

FINAL TAKE: This should be a low-scoring contest. A draw is a highly likely outcome with a 1-0 or 2-1 result for Portugal likely being the worst case scenario for Morocco. The +1 (or more in some locations) Goal-Line should be very valuable in this contest. 10* World Cup Wednesday Morning Discounted Deal with Morocco (9451) plus the Goal-Line versus Portugal (9452). Best of luck for us — Frank.
