The 85th Major League Baseball All-Star Game will be played Tuesday night at Target Stadium in Minneapolis and betting on the game once again tells just how difficult the game is to win. Most books have the National League the favorite at -105 or -110 while the giant offshore Costa Rican book CRIS that services mostly highrollers in has the American League -106. The total on the game is 8.
One can read into those figures what one wishes, but they tell us the public is on the National League and the wiseguys and sharps are on the American League. Traditionally the latter is right most of the time.
As difficult as is the All-Star game is to handicap, I have won six straight and intend to cash a 25-unit ticket for my seventh consecutive win. No bets in the home run derby, or on the total.You can get my selection for just $15, charged to your major credit card, on this site or toll free at 1-800-755-2255. The game will be televised nationally on FOX and will begin at 8:15 EDT.
Some facts and figures that might help you pick the winner.
- The American League won last year’s game 3-0, with its pitchers giving up three hits against a power-packed NL offense.
- The National League won the 2012 game 8-0, with the latter jumping off to a 5-0 lead in the first inning by destroying AL starter, Detroit ace Justin Verlander.
- The National League dominated this game in its early years but heading into the Tuesday night affair, the score stands: National League 43 wins, American League 39 wins, with two ties.
- The American League is 9-3-1 in the last 14 All-Star games but the NL has gone 3-1 in the last four.
- An average of 5.5 runs have been scored in the last two games and an average of 7.0 runs in the last four.
Seattle Seahawks 5-1 To Win Super Bowl And Should Be
Not bragging but last August I picked the Seattle Seahawks to win the Super Bowl, got down early at prices ranging from 12-1 to 20-1 and cashed a rare 300-unit ticker when as 2.5-point underdogs they crushed the Denver Broncos, 43-8. When that selection was made 6.5 months before the game was actually played, I told the world I based that prediction on the fact they were, by far, the most complete team in the NFL—a team with no weaknesses.
While some may say that was a bold prediction, taking the Seahawks to become the first team since the New England Patriots in 2004 and 2005 to win back-to-back championships this time around is rather easy. The reason: Seattle is a more complete team than it was last year and remains the only team in the NFL that does not have a weakness on offense or defense.
What many did not know last season, or even this season, the championship Seahawks were the fourth youngest team to every win the Super Bowl, averaging just 26 years and 175 days of age. Most of those players return and you can take it to the bank they will be even better this time around.
In addition to being the complete team, no other team in the NFL plays with the focus, intensity and enthusiasm of Seattle. Coach Pete Carroll has the ability many do not, that of bringing a team up to each game—game-after-game—on the razor’s edge and ready to its best shot. The intimidation factor is always in play and favors the Seahawks who were the top-ranked defensive team in the NFL last season, giving up just 273.6 yards and 14.4 points per game.
Seattle opened as co-favorite with the Denver Broncos at 6-1 to win this coming Super Bowl and both teams still share that honor at 5-1.
Power Is In NFL West
There is no doubt in my mind the power in the National Football League rests in the NFL West, which last season stood a combined 30-10 in games against non-division rivals. Other members of the West and their Super Bowl odds are the San Francisco 49ers at 7-1 and the Arizona Cardinals and St. Louis Rams at 40-1.
1st NFL Pre-Season Game Just 20 Days Away
It is a busy time for sports handicappers these days with the National Football League teams opening their training camps in less than two weeks and with the first pre-season game just 20 days out. The first pre-season game—the Hall of Fame contest from Canton—will be played Sunday night, August 3, and will match the Buffalo Bills and the New York Giants in a game that will be shown on national television NBC.
I am as ready as one can be for the coming season—both in the NFL and in college football—and I do believe I will produce major profits during the season. You can get on board for it all right now for the early-bird price of just $199, charged to your major credit card, and receive the best bets of the entire NFL pre-season, the entire college season, the entire NFL season and free daily baseball selections through August.
