    Alicia WhittenHere are some of the best sports plays for all you gamblers out there.

    The Game: South Florida @ Pittsburgh

    The Pick: South Florida -2.5

    The Reason: In close Thursday night college football games, the home team is always a good bet, and I was looking for any reason to take the Pitt Panthers in this one, but I just couldn’t find one. They may have won the last three meetings between these two teams, but the Panthers haven’t been playing good football this season…

    The Game: Boston Red Sox @ Baltimore Orioles

    The Pick: Over 9

    The Reason: Red Sox starter Jon Lester has been terrible as of late, losing his last three games in a row and allowing 16 runs over his last 13.2 innings. As for the Orioles starter, Alfredo Simon, he hasn’t been much better, losing his last two games and allowing nine runs against in his last 13 innings. The Sox have gone…

    AlexandraHere are some of the best sports plays for all you gamblers out there.

    The Game: Boston Red Sox @ Baltimore Orioles

    The Pick: Over 9.5

    The Reason: The Red Sox have gone over the total in seven of their last nine, while the Orioles have gone over in eight of their last ten. The last five games between these two teams have seen the total go over four times, with the other game ending in a push. With the Sox looking to hold onto their spot in the playoffs, and the…

    The Game: Washington Redskins @ Dallas Cowboys

    The Pick: Washington Redskins +3.5

    The Reason: The Dallas Cowboys have certainly got the better of the Redskins in recent memory, having won four of the last five games between these two division foes, and 13 of the last fifteen games between these two teams in Dallas. However, the Redskins have covered the spread in seven of the last nine meetings…

    The Game: Boston Red Sox @ New York Yankees

    The Pick: Yankees +135

    The Reason: The Yankees may have already clinched a post-season birth and top spot in the AL East, but make no mistake about it, they would love nothing more than to eliminate the Red Sox from post-season contention. They will have that opportunity this weekend, beginning tonight. The Yanks have won four of their last…

    Breanne BensonHere are some of the best sports plays for all you gamblers out there.

    The Game: North Carolina State @ Cincinnati Bearcats

    The Pick: Cincinnati -7

    The Reason: The Bearcats’ offense has averaged 51.3 points through three games this season (4th in the nation), and they will be up against a North Carolina defense that has allowed over 400 yards against twice, to below-average teams in Wake Forest and Liberty. They will also be missing at least three key defensive starters. Look for Bearcats senior quarterback Zach Collaros to put plenty of points on the board through the air and the Wolfpack should have a tough time keeping up and covering the seven-point spread…

    Charm KillingsHere are some of the best sports plays for all you gamblers out there.

    The Game: San Diego Padres @ Colorado Rockies

    The Pick: Padres +100

    The Reason: The Padres have won four of their last five overall and their last three in a row against the Rockies. As for Colorado, they have lost their last five in a row. Tonight’s starting pitchers, Anthony Bass and Aaron Cook, squared off earlier in the year, with the Padres coming out on top by a score of 3-1. Look for a similar result…

    Laura LeeHere are some of the best sports plays for all you gamblers out there.

    The Game: Texas Rangers @ Oakland A’s

    The Pick: Rangers -135

    The Reason: The Rangers continue to roll, having won six of their last seven games. Tonight they take on the Oakland A’s who they have beaten in 10 of their last 11 matchups. Rangers starter Derek Holland is 14-5 on the season, while the A’s have lost their last four games when Rich Harden gets the start. Look for the Rangers…

    Chelsea BrookeHere are some of the best sports plays for all you gamblers out there.

    The Game: St. Louis Rams @ New York Giants

    The Pick: Over 44

    The Reason: The New York Giants enter tonight’s game looking to avenge their week one loss to the Washington Redskins. One thing that was evident in that game was the fact that injuries have left plenty of holes in the Giants defense. The Rams offense is struggling through several injuries of their own, but they should be…

    Rali IvanovaHere are some of the best sports plays for all you gamblers out there.

    The Game: Boise State @ Toledo

    The Pick: Boise State -20

    The Reason: While some may want to look at Toledo’s 27-22 loss to Ohio State last week as an indication that they can hang with a top team, I’d rather look at Boise State’s 35-21 victory over Georgia in Atlanta as an indication that the Broncos can beat up on the best away from home. Toledo is far from being among “the best”…

    April CheryseHere are some of the best sports plays for all you gamblers out there.

    The Game: LSU @ Mississippi State

    The Pick: LSU -3.5

    The Reason: The LSU Tigers enter tonight’s game ranked third in the nation, although a 40-27 win over Oregon in their opening game of the season has many people thinking that they are even better than that. The Tigers followed up that impressive win with a 49-3 beatdown over Northwestern State last weekend…

  • The Daily Gambling Fix 9/14/11 — Brianne

    BrianneHere are some of the best sports plays for all you gamblers out there.

    The Game: Toronto Blue Jays @ Boston Red Sox

    The Pick: Blue Jays +110

    The Reason: The Jays got roughed up by the Red Sox last night, but they should be able to avenge that loss today when they wrap up their two-game series in Boston. The Jays send Ricky Romero to the mound and they have won in nine of his last 10 starts. As for Red Sox starter John Lackey, he has lost his last three starts and…

  • The Daily Gambling Fix 9/13/11 – Jenna Haze

    JennaHere are some of the best sports plays for all you gamblers out there.

    The Game: Toronto Blue Jays @ Boston Red Sox

    The Pick: Over 10

    The Reason: The last three in a row, and nine of the last 13 games between these two teams have gone over the total. Tonight’s pitching matchup features a battle between Brandon Morrow and Tim Wakefield. These two starters squared off on earlier this month and the Jays won 11-10. Each of Morrow’s last four games…

    AliciaHere are some of the best sports plays for all you gamblers out there.

    The Game: New England Patriots @ Miami Dolphins

    The Pick: Patriots -7

    The Reason: The New England Patriots won both meetings between these two teams last season by scores of 38-7 and 41-14. It appears as though the Patriots have gotten stronger this season, with several key additions to their offense and defense through the draft and free agency. As for the Dolphins, they were unable…

    Holly MichaelsHere are some of the best sports plays for all you gamblers out there.

    The Game: Los Angeles Dodgers @ San Francisco Giants

    The Pick: Dodgers +110

    The Reason: The Dodgers enter tonight’s game having won eight of their last 10 on the road, and 13 of their last 16 overall. As for the Giants, they have lost five of their last seven at home. One stat working in favor of the Giants is their 6-1 record against the Dodgers over their last seven meetings, but that one Dodgers victory just so…
