FREE NFL PICK SUNDAY FROM THIS WEEK’s GREEN SHEET:
#280 Tennessee Titans -7.5 over Jacksonville Jaguars 12:00 PM CT
The Jaguars dealt several stars in the weeks before the season but wound up victors in Week 1. Gardner Minshew had just one incomplete pass while throwing three touchdowns to lead a comeback for the Jaguars. Jacksonville was outgained 445-241 as it was a fortunate result but catching an extra day on the turnaround while the Titans are in Denver late Monday night is a favorable set-up. Tennessee barely won that game with four missed kicks from veteran Stephen Gostkowski to leave 10 points on the field. Derrick Henry compiled solid numbers as Tennessee moved the ball conservatively, posting only 4.8 yards per play. This is a rare favorite price for the Titans but Tennessee did produce several lopsided wins after Ryan Tannehill took over last season. Posting 26 first downs against a top tier defense last week was a solid result and the Titans will be less dependent on the passing game than the Colts had to be last week.

Free MLB Pick – 909/910 UNDER 8.5 Cincinnati Reds (Bauer) at Milwaukee Brewers (Anderson) 7:10 PM CT
After years of unrealized hype, Trevor Bauer has put it all together so far this season with the Reds with eye-popping numbers through four starts, featuring a 14.0 K/9 and a 0.68 ERA. While that pace isn’t sustainable so far working with a .140 BABIP and a 100 percent strand rate, Bauer could remain one of the NL’s top tier starters. A glance at Bauer’s starts shows three lousy AL Central games plus a start vs. the Brewers but drawing that matchup again should mean another strong showing for the outspoken 29-year-old. Bauer struck out 12 Brewers in early August and Milwaukee has had miserable offensive production of late in the midst of a four-game slide. Opposing pitchers have flirted with no-hitters in three recent games vs. Milwaukee and Milwaukee is batting .212 with a .672 OPS in the past two weeks. The season numbers aren’t much better for the Brewers who have had notable struggles vs. right-handed pitching. Despite Bauer starring, the Reds are also just 11-15 as both of these teams have disappointed as the midway point of the season approaches this week. These teams figured to benefit most from the playoff expansion but neither would make the cut right now. Cincinnati has been shut out four times in the past 15 games while the offense has posted a total of 15 runs now six games into the current road trip. In the last week the Reds have a .573 team OPS and Brett Anderson has a decent start against Cincinnati already this season. Anderson made his best start as a Brewer last week vs. a formidable Minnesota lineup and he has allowed only two home runs in 17 innings of work. Both bullpens have had mixed results but still possess high-end arms and both starters look capable of quality starts in this contest.
Bobby Dalton is 2-0 in the NBA Playoffs with a pair of Game 1 winners, including last night’s big upset with Portland.

Free Pick Wednesday – 971/972 UNDER 12.5 Houston Astros (Valdez) at Colorado Rockies (Castellani) 7:40 PM CT
Coor’s Field brings very high
totals but Framber Valdez has been an appealing option on the mound for the
Astros. He filled a vital role for Houston last season as a spot starter and
long reliever and so far in 2020 has a 1.90 ERA in nearly 24 innings. His
strikeout-to-walk numbers are excellent and he has kept the ball in the ballpark
while featuring a great groundball rate. The Rockies have cooled off from a hot
start to the season with losses in five of the last six games and have scored
just 18 runs over the past five games combined. In two games in Houston
Colorado managed only two combined runs and over 20 innings these teams
combined for just six total runs the past two days. Colorado has positive
splits vs. left-handers but overall the Rockies have just a .677 team OPS in
the past six games. After a slow start the Astros have climbed back to AL
contention but it has been with pitching, not with the star-studded offense.
Houston has won six straight games, including the past four by a single run.
The Astros have allowed only seven runs combined in those six games, winning
each of the past four games despite only scoring a total of nine runs. On the
season Houston has a team OPS of only .657 vs. right-handers and they have hit
more home runs vs. lefties this season despite 279 fewer at bats. Ryan
Castellani is making his third MLB start and he is an unlikely candidate to be
in the rotation after a rough season at AAA in 2019. That was a short
injury-riddled campaign however and the 2014 2nd round pick has high-ceiling
stuff. So far in 2020 his ERA is 1.04 with a 10.4 K/9. He has been very
fortunate so far as that isn’t a sustainable pace but he could still provide an
effective start against a Houston lineup that shockingly has a worse team wOBA
than the Royals and Giants. The ‘under’ is 13-9-1 in Rockies games this season
and the move to Denver has brought a four-run swing from yesterday’s game that
finished 2-1 in 11 innings with no runs scored until the 10th inning. Both
teams have great bullpen numbers in the past handful of games including a 0.59
ERA for Houston and the great starting efforts so far in this series leaves
most top relief options available today.

Free Pick Thursday: #959/960 UNDER 9
Pittsburgh Pirates (Williams) at Cincinnati Reds (DeSclafani) 4:10 PM CT
Pittsburgh and Cincinnati have both struggled offensively but the problems have been almost exclusively vs. right-handed pitching. The Pirates for instance have a very strong .855 team OPS vs. left-handers but suffer a dramatic decline vs. right-handers with a dreadful .521 team OPS. Cincinnati meanwhile is an above average hitting team vs. lefties as well with a .775 team OPS but falls below .700 vs. right-handers. Trevor Williams had a fortunate 2018 season and regressed last season. He could be poised to land somewhere in the middle as a capable starter this season. So far that has been the case with a 3.52 ERA and a 8.2 K/9. Williams can be a home run risk and home runs tells the story in the disparity of his 2018 and 2019 seasons. The Reds have some power with 27 home runs this season but they have just 19 in 466 plate appearances vs. right-handers and ultimately have a .197 team batting average in those matchups. The Reds have topped five runs in nine innings just once in the past 12 games while since the calendar turned to August Reds pitching has allowed more than five runs only twice. 3-13 Pittsburgh exploded for 13 runs on Friday but has scored six runs in the past two games. A long layoff with games vs. St. Louis cancelled isn’t likely to help the offense while it will provide some rest for the bullpen. Anthony DeSclafani has not allowed a run while allowing only five hits in 11 innings of work in 2020. He turned a corner last season after an uneven start to his career and was a very effective pitcher for the Reds in 2019. His risk for allowing home runs should be minimal vs. Pittsburgh and that is usually his downfall as he has strong command and is capable of strikeouts. Nine seems like a reach for these teams in a righty/righty matchup with two of the better starters for each team.
Nelly’s took a 10-1 NBA run into the break and we’ve maintained a great season pace of above 62% since the restart with a 5-3 record in our rated picks.

Free Pick Sunday: #726 Toronto Raptors – over Memphis Grizzlies 1:00 PM ET
Toronto’s perfect start in the restart came to a halt on Friday as in a big Eastern Conference game with Boston the Raptors lost for the third time this season to the Celtics. Those teams have a good shot to face off in the Eastern Conference semifinals but the first order of business for the Raptors is to lock up the #2 seed in the East, which they can do with one more win. Two of three wins for Toronto in Orlando have come by double-digits in what has been a difficult path through four games. Milwaukee, Philadelphia, and Denver close out the regular season as the Raptors would be well served to seal the #2 spot Sunday to be able to use next week to rest some key players. The format of the restart put in place by the NBA seems in some ways like it was designed to bump Memphis out of the playoffs. The Grizzlies did their part by losing the first four games in Orlando while also losing Jaren Jackson to injury. Friday night Memphis played terrific and beat Oklahoma City in a huge result that greatly reduces the risk that Memphis will be left out of the playoffs, or at least the play-in 8/9 series. Things broke right for Memphis last night as well as the Clippers were able to steal a win against Portland, now leaving Memphis 1.5 games up on the Blazers and 2.0 games up on the Sun and Spurs. San Antonio and New Orleans face off today in what will effectively be an elimination game while The Blazers have a difficult turnaround facing Philadelphia after last night’s tough result. Memphis can breathe a bit easier but it could mean a difficult task on Sunday. Facing Boston and Milwaukee in the final two games sounds daunting but it is likely that both of those East contenders will be locked into their positions and actually could provide Memphis with a favorable draw if they need to win to lock up the #8 spot. Memphis outshot Oklahoma City by more than 20 percent in Friday’s win in what feels like a fluky result. Memphis led the rebounding but still had 20 turnovers and a big edge at the line. Toronto will be the best team Memphis has faced so far in the bubble and this spread is actually lower than the favorite spread Toronto faced vs. Orlando last week, a team that has been much more impressive than the Grizzlies in the restart.

Free Pick Saturday: #907 Atlanta Braves (Wright) + over Philadelphia Phillies (Arrieta) 5:05 PM CT
Kyle Wright lacks quality numbers at the MLB level but he was the fifth pick in the 2017 draft and still has endless potential. Atlanta’s rotation challenges have left him with a spot moving forward with a longer leash than he might have had otherwise and he should grow into the role. He owns a 12.0 K/9 but walks have been a big problem. The positive offensive numbers for the Phillies have come through a tiny sample size as Philadelphia’s schedule has been flipped upside down in the first two weeks of the season. The Braves remain one of the most dangerous offensive teams with a 74 runs in 14 games and despite the surprising start from the Marlins, Atlanta remains the team to beat in the NL. Jake Arrieta was arguably the best pitcher in baseball in 2015 and 2016 but he has been medicore since with his strikeout numbers declining substantially. He has been a below .500 starter since joining the Phillies and he is on pace for a fifth straight season with an ERA that has climbed. He still commands some line respect as a former Cy Young winner on a popular team and the Braves are worth a look at this price in just about any NL matchup this season.
UNDER 9 Texas Rangers (Minor) at Oakland Athletics (Fiers) 2:40 PM CT
Minor has lost both of his starts this season but his FIP of 3.36 sits well
below his 5.91 ERA, he has simply had terrible luck with nearly half of his
base runners coming around to score. Minor has been a reliable option for the
Rangers the past two seasons but he has struggled vs. Oakland allowing 17 runs
in three starts last season. The Athletics crushed left-handed pitching with an
.811 OPS in 2019 but the splits have gone the other way so far this season.
With five straight wins and 28 runs so far in August, Oakland is emerging as a
serious AL contender but the Coliseum remains a favorable pitching park. Mike Fiers
also had a FIP much lower than his 5.40 ERA and should have better luck with base
runners in upcoming starts. Fiers actually pitched quite well in his last three
starts of 2019 vs. the Rangers and last night’s 10-run output was quite
misleading. There were only 14 hits in the game and a combined seven at-bats
with runners in scoring position. Even with the loss the Rangers preserved its
bullpen last night while Burch Smith gave an extended relief outing to keep
Oakland with most top options available today. Last night’s total was just 8
and there isn’t significant reason to move today’s number a full run given a
pitching matchup that is of similar caliber, albeit with much less strikeout potential.
Both teams are outside MLB’s top 18 in team wOBA and strong walk rates for both
lineups aren’t likely to be a big factor in this pitching matchup.
Nelly’s Baseball has hit 60% in 2020 including three straight wins the past three days including a nice underdog win on the Blue Jays last night. Join us for a TOTAL for Thursday night for only $15!
