Locks MLB (0.75 Unit) Boston Red Sox ML @ Toronto Blue Jays (+125): 6:07 PM CT on SN1 I’ve been wondering for weeks if the regression monster is coming for Michael Wacha, but it still hasn’t and likely won’t tonight either. The Red Sox righty keeps plugging along with a 2.34 ERA and 1.04 WHIP, only having one blow-up game on the year. Boston still won that game, as they have in … [Read more...] about Tiny Nick’s Gambling Picks: 6/28

The Minnesota Twins were supposed to have a jubilant plane ride to Northeast Ohio. They had just won the final two games of their homestand and expanded their lead in the American League Central. A five-game series with the second-place Cleveland Guardians awaited, and the Twins were ready to re-establish themselves as the best team in the division. But just when the Twins were … [Read more...] about Did Wes Johnson Leave For LSU Because Of Pay Or the Lifestyle?
The off-season is the prime time for hype around your NFL team, no matter how successful — or terrible — they were last year. That’s still true for a consistently successful team like the Green Bay Packers. Despite questions about the pass-catchers, the offensive line depth, special teams, and whether the talented defense can take a big leap forward, there is much to be … [Read more...] about What Will It Take For Aaron Rodgers To Win A Fifth MVP Award?
Locks MLB (0.5 Unit) Pittsburgh Pirates/Washington Nationals Over 9.5 (-110): 6:05 PM CT on MASN I’ll put my two-bad-teams theory of scoring into practice here, as a couple of National League bottom-feeders square off. It helps that the starting pitchers are known gas can Erick Fedde for Washington, and a guy I’ve never heard of in Miguel Yajure for Pittsburgh. This will be … [Read more...] about Tiny Nick’s Gambling Picks: 6/27
With NFL training camp less than a month away, many remaining free agents will find new homes before the leadup to the 2022 season really kicks into gear. Offensive tackle Eric Fisher is one of those players, and he could make a lot of sense in Green Bay. Green Bay would have their offensive line set in stone in an ideal world. It would be anchored by Pro Bowlers David … [Read more...] about Could Eric Fisher Be A Veteran Fit For Green Bay’s O-Line?
The Minnesota Twins had a 5-1 lead over the Cleveland Guardians entering the fifth inning on Wednesday. Minnesota had lost the first game against the Guardians, 6-5 in extra innings, after holding a 5-3 lead entering the 8th inning. But they had Cleveland’s hot bats contained for four innings in Game 2, and starter Sonny Gray was cruising. Gray had given up back-to-back doubles … [Read more...] about What Should the Twins Do If Things Start To Unspool In Cleveland?
It’s easy to look back now and wonder what if? What if Kyle Rudolph hadn’t, ahem, kinda sorta pushed off and caught that touchdown in overtime? What if the Minnesota Vikings had fired Rick Spielman and Mike Zimmer afterwards, replacing them with George Paton and Kevin Stefanski? Spielman and Zimmer could have left the organization as collaborators rather than at loggerheads. … [Read more...] about Do We Actually Wish the Vikings Lost That Playoff Game In New Orleans?
Locks MLB (0.75 Unit) New York Yankees Team Total Over 4.5 (-110): 12:35 PM CT on MLB Network Regression is the word of the day for this game. Except for a 4-run final frame on Thursday, the Houston Astros have done an incredible job to slow down the Yankees freight train in this series. But something tells me the Bronx Bombers aren’t going to get no-hit again. Rather, … [Read more...] about Tiny Nick’s Gambling Picks: 6/26
Brian Gutekunst prefers to wait for training camp to see if any young player has developed rather than signing veteran free agents. He can always sign players, and usually does, later in the season. But the Green Bay Packers‘ edge depth is too concerning for a passive approach. That’s why if the Packers could only sign one more player before the season starts, they should sign … [Read more...] about Carlos Dunlap Is the Perfect Target For the Packers In Free Agency
