Cincinnati (+110) at CLEVELAND
By Chris Jordan, Featured Handicapper
Back-to-back 200♦ MLB winners to close the betting week, and then a 300♦ MLB winner on the Athletics Run Line last night to start the new betting week.
Ready for Winning Day # 4 in a Row?
I have something twice as strong as the Athletics Run Line for Wednesday, as I'm playing the early NBA tip between the Memphis Grizzlies and Utah Jazz.
Fact is, I'm focused on every aspect of every game, and that includes zeroing in on value prices when I see them, whether we're talking underrated underdogs or cheap numbers on favorites. Either way, you're going to see value in the prices I'm playing.
Listen, I'm geared up to get started with SPORTS!! I've watched my fair share of obscure sports the past four months, and I'm ready for the majors to take over. MLB, NBA, NHL and soon we'll have NFL.

My free play is on the Cincinnati Reds once again, as I like their young pitcher going tonight, rookie right-hander Tejay Antone.
He's made one relief appearance for the Reds, firing 4.1 innings of one-hit, one-run ball in an 8-7 loss to the Cubs on July 27. He also struck out five and walked just one.
But now he's doing something he's used to, starting.
The Reds’ fifth-round pick in the 2014 draft, Antone spent time in the minors working on his arsenal, and was 11-12 with a 4.00 ERA at Double-A Chattanooga and Triple-A Louisville.
I always like to look deeper into why certain pitchers have the records they do when making their first big-league start, and a lot of times you'll find they've been working on specific pitches, and don't really care if their pitches are being sprayed across the outfield.
The good news for this kid is his durability. He can go deep into games, and has the arm strength to throw plenty of pitches. His sinker arrives at 95.8 miles per hour, and the impressive stat with this kid is his spin rate of 2655 ranked No. 1 among all MLB numbers from last season. Add in his slider, a deceptive 83.0 mph trick, and his curve that drops out of sight while traveling at 79.8 mph, and I like his chances to handcuff Cleveland.
Take the small pup.

It was bound to come to an end. Four straight NBA winners and I hit a wall Tuesday in a game I had no business going into overtime if truth be told. How Dallas got back into that game and led by 7 in overtime at one point is beyond me. Nevertheless, it was a loss and today I'm taking a break from hoops.
I'm back on the diamond with another 40 Dime Winner, the biggest blowout on the card.
My $10 bettors have made $14,912 over the last two MLB seasons, and tonight I deliver 40 Dime MLB Winner # 19 of 31, and # 5 of 7 this season.
Don't miss Winning Day # 9 of 12.

My free winner is on the Angels against the Mariners, and I'm playing this one on the run line.
Since every MLB wager on a run line or total auto-lists pitchers, I want you to be sure the two pitchers on your ticket, when making this play, are Dylan Bundy and Marco Gonzales. If they are not the pitchers of record when making your play, disregard this play. There is a chance Bundy won't go, but as of Midnight, he is the pitcher of record.
This is a revenge game for Bundy, who took the loss last week against the Mariners and Gonzales. And it wasn't as if he deserved the loss and would like to forget it. On the contrary, he was stellar for the Halos, giving up three runs on four hits and two walks while striking out eight over six innings in a loss to Seattle seven days ago.
His only mistake was a three-run home run to Jose Marmolejos in the first inning, but from there he was masterful. Bundy now has a 2.84 ERA through 12.2 innings this season.
Considering Gonzales is scheduled to start opposite Bundy again, the motivation factor increases.
Lay the run line with the Angels.
