Getting Off to a Strong Start

A pretty wild weekend in sports. A down to the wire finish at the Barclays and NFL football is about to get into high gear. We hope you are ready for some more picks today.

We have to start off with our pick of the day from Friday. We loved the Bears in this game against the Oakland Raiders. It was a no brainer for us to take the Bears. Although the score showed a fairly tight game, this one was over in the first half. The score was 27-3 at the half and the scrubs made a comeback in the second half. There was never a doubt in this one.

We did make some picks in the Barclays this weekend, which were quite good. We had the third round leader Matt Kuchar, who eventually blew up. All of the picks we made had reached the cut. It was Tiger Woods who would have to pull this one out, but supposedly injury was causing him to hit errant shots. He likes to whine a lot. Adam Scott, who was probably our next high pick to win shot a 66 to finish in front of everyone for the win. It appears the FedEx Cup is in his grasp. More golf bets to come.

The Washington Nationals did pickup the win Friday as well. Gio pitched and got it done for a solid baseball pick.

As for today, the action is on Baseball and Soccer. Soon we will have all kinds of Football plays. But for now, Baseball is the highlight. The first pick is the day game between the Tampa Bay Rays and the Kansas City Royals. We like the Royal at home on the moneyline. At (+105), they should be able to squeak out a victory.

The second game of the day is the New York Yankees moneyline (-109) against the Toronto Blue Jays. The Yanks are trying to make a run and if they want to do it, the game starts now. They are on the road in Toronto, but that shouldn’t stop them from firing the bats. You can also consider a high scoring affair and take the over at 9. This game can get out of hand.

We have a really great matchup today in the world of soccer. The England Premier League has Manchester United visiting Chelsea. Based on the past two games we really like a draw in this one. (+240) if you pull this off. However, if a winner had to be picked we think Manchester United gets it done on the road. Chelsea looked a little flat the other day. It is a Pick(-155). Don’t go to heavy, but if it isn’t a draw Manchester should be the play.
Soccer Betting
The US Tennis Open begins this week. We will give you our Top 3 Men and Top Women you should bet on. You never know in tennis, but in the big tournaments it always seems to have the big names in the finals. You can bet individual matches, but we will look at the champion for now. In the men’s section we like: Andrew Murray 7/2, Rafael Nadal at 7/4 and Roger Federer at 11/1. Our long shot pick for the men is John Isner at 50/1. There should be some interesting matches for sure.

On the women’s side we like Victoria Azarenka at 3/1. Serena Williams at 2/3 and Samantha Stosur at 25/1. Our long shot pick is Ana Ivanovic at 100/1. Get ready for some tennis.

We’ll continue our picks tomorrow so stay tuned.
