(961) Boston Red Sox at (962) Toronto Blue Jays
7:07pm EDT - Jun 17/2024

THE PLAY: Total Over 7.5 (-113) N Pivetta (RHP), Y Kikuchi (LHP) Must Start

2% Take Boston - Toronto OVER (#961-962) (listed pitchers)

The Red Sox bats are heating up with the weather in June, pounding out eight runs or more four times in their last five games.  The Blue Jays scored a dozen runs in two games over the weekend, now 6-3 to the Over in their last nine at home.  And there’s ample reason to expect some crooked numbers on the scoreboard once again tonight in a matchup featuring a pair of suspect starting pitchers and a Blue Jays bullpen that has spent most of the season getting lit up; bottom five in bullpen ERA.

Yusei Kikuchi is not in particularly good current form.  He’s allowed five runs or more twice in his last four starts and he’s coming off a four walk game in his last outing, struggling with his command.  Kikuchi got bombed twice vs the Red Sox last year: ten earned runs and 16 hits allowed while failing to make it out of the fifth inning either time.  Nick Pivetta has a huge sample size against current Blue Jays -- more than 180 plate appearances against him -- and those Toronto hitters are batting .304 against him with a .934 OPS.  This sure doesn’t feel like a pitcher’s duel to this bettor!  Take the OVER.

(193) UNLV at (194) Houston
7:00pm EDT - Aug 31/2024

THE PLAY: UNLV +3.5 (-110)

2% Take UNLV (#193)

Plain and simple: I have lived in Las Vegas since 1998.  The state of the UNLV football program RIGHT NOW heading into Barry Odom’s second year on the job is better than at any point over the last 27 football seasons that I’ve been following this program closely.  The Rebels have all the makings of a ‘bet-on’ team again in 2024, just like they were in 2023.

UNLV won nine games last year (most wins since the Randall Cunningham season in 1984) and reached the Mountain West Championship Game for the first time in the history of the program. They led the conference in scoring; returning an elite level receiving corps and the Rebels best offensive line in decades.  Defensively, UNLV has upgraded their secondary fairly dramatically through the transfer portal and they return the vast majority of their solid front seven.  No surprise here if defensive minded Odom creates a nasty stop unit in 2024.

Houston, on the other hand, is in complete rebuild mode under first year head coach Willie Fritz. Dana Holgorsen did not leave the cupboards stocked for the Cougars program, and Fritz didn’t exactly light the world on fire in his first two years at Tulane, winning only nine games (combined) -- he’s got time to fix things.  This line is low for a reason -- expect the Cougs to be in a dogfight just to win this game SU, let alone winning it by any sort of margin.  Take the points!  Take UNLV

(463) New England Patriots at (464) Cincinnati Bengals
1:00pm EDT - Sep 8/2024

THE PLAY: Total Under 43.0 (-110)

2% Take Cincinnati - New England UNDER (#463-464)

The Bengals offense hasn’t clicked on all cylinders in Week 1 even once during the Zac Taylor era.  Cinci has been held to 24 points or less in regulation in each of their five Week 1’s under Taylor, averaging less than 17 points per game.  I’m not expecting 2024 to be dramatically different for a team that has consistently been underprepared on offense for their opener against a defensive minded foe like New England in the first game of the Jarod Mayo era.

The Patriots, on paper, have the single worst offense in the NFL.  We could see Drake Maye making his NFL debut on the road vs a good defense, which equates to a very conservative gameplan.  We could see Jacoby Brissett behind a weak offensive line throwing to a weak receiving corps. Either way, I’m not expecting touchdowns in bunches.  Early reports from mini-camp have detailed all kinds of issues for this limited attack; issues that are not likely to be solved on opening day.

There’s only one reason to make this bet now and lock up your money all summer with this wager -- getting the ‘best of the number’.  With 43’s still available and 42.5’s still widely available, let’s lock in now for a game likely to close at 42 or lower.  Take the UNDER.

Line Parameter: 2% at 42.5 or higher, 1.5% at 42 or lower

Consultant Bio

Ted Sevransky better known as Teddy Covers moved to Las Vegas to bet on sports full-time back in 1998 and he's been doing it successfully ever since. During that time, Teddy has been featured prominently in the mainstream press. Print highlights include the New York Times, Wall Street Journal, Washington Post, Boston Globe, Las Vegas Review Journal and Playboy magazine. Television highlights include CBS This Morning, CNBC, PBS and Bloomberg TV. Teddy starred in the recent sports betting documentary Life on the Line and has been featured in an ESPN 30-for-30 and on Showtime's 'Action' miniseries. 

Teddy is a 1992 University of Michigan graduate. His handicapping approach is fine tuned for the modern betting marketplace in 2023; a market that is dominated by stat-based quants - the sharp money.  In one sentence, Teddy looks to identify and identify and isolate 'morphing' teams -- teams that are currently playing at a different level or pace (better or worse; faster or slower) than their long term statistical profile would indicate.  Those become teams to bet on, bet against, bet over and bet under, until the quants catch up with current realities and value them correctly.

This Ride the hot & fade the cold approach has allowed Teddy to provide for himself and his family with steady income from his sports betting winnings, over more than two decades.  And those two decades of experience grinding it out in Vegas allows Teddy to avoid some of the traps and pitfalls that befall many cappers.  Teddy is one bettor who can handle the highs and lows of this sometimes zany and always exciting business with consistent, calm professionalism.
