MIAMI @ SAN DIEGO | 08/11 | 4:10 PM EDT
UNDER 8
ANALYSIS: Season finale between these clubs. Looks to be a solid pitching matchup -- and quick turnaround games usually benefit pitchers -- between Miami's Sandy Alcantara (3.70 ERA) and San Diego's Ryan Weathers (1.29 ERA during day games). Around 63 percent of my model simulations forecast this matchup landing Under 8 runs.

N.Y. YANKEES @ KANSAS CITY | 08/11 | 2:10 PM EDT
OVER 9.5
ANALYSIS: The wind will be blowing out at approximately 15 mph at Kauffman Stadium so I expect this original total of 9.5 to rise. The Yankees will use an opener in Lucas Luetge, meaning plenty of other relievers will see action and that bullpen is really thin/struggling right now. It's Brady Singer for the Royals, and he has a 5.05 home ERA. The first two games of this series have each seen at least 12 runs.

MIAMI @ SAN DIEGO | 08/11 | 4:10 PM EDT
SAN DIEGO -153
ANALYSIS: This is a very reasonable price on the host Padres, who are 40-23 at home. Sandy Alcantara has been a bright spot for Miami this season but lately has struggled, posting a 7.02 ERA over his last three starts. Look for San Diego to send the Marlins to their sixth straight loss.

COLORADO @ HOUSTON | 08/11 | 2:10 PM EDT
HOUSTON -1.5
ANALYSIS: The Rockies have lost all seven of Antonio Senzatela's road starts (6.03 ERA). They're 13-41 on the road after Tuesday's 5-0 loss in Houston. This is Senzatela's second start since coming off the COVID-19 injured list. When he leaves, the Rockies' bullpen and its 5.42 ERA will take over. Framber Valdez gets the start for Houston; he has not allowed a homer in his last three starts and owns a solid 3.40 ERA at home. Play Houston -1.5 runs at -125.

FEATURED PICK
CHI. WHITE SOX @ MINNESOTA | 08/11 | 1:10 PM EDT
MINNESOTA +1.5
ANALYSIS: No Luis Robert, Yoan Moncada or Tim Anderson in the lineup for Chicago; on the mound, the White Sox were to start Lance Lynn, who is 4-1 with a 1.53 ERA in day games this year and 2-0 with a 1.50 ERA in four outings vs. the Twins. However, he was a late scratch -- not injury-related but to use him Thursday in the Field of Dreams game -- in favor of Reynaldo Lopez. Downgrade obviously. Minnesota's Bailey Ober has allowed three earned or fewer in four straight. I like the Twins on the runline now that Lynn is out, a few regulars are resting and maybe the Pale Hose are looking ahead to Thursday's very unique game vs. the Yankees.

TAMPA BAY @ BOSTON | 08/11 | 7:10 PM EDT
TAMPA BAY +105
ANALYSIS: The Red Sox have been seriously struggling as they fell to a season high five games back of first place yesterday. They face Josh Fleming, and the Red Sox tend to struggle against lefties. The Rays hit righties much better and they should have a more favorable matchup than last night’s lefty with Nate Eovaldi. Eovaldi has seriously struggled his past couple starts and he allowed six runs in 5.1 IP to the Rays two starts ago. Fleming allowed just three runs in five innings against the Red Sox two starts ago and the Rays have won five straight, take the Rays.

CHI. WHITE SOX @ MINNESOTA | 08/11 | 1:10 PM EDT
MINNESOTA +162
ANALYSIS: As Severance pointed out, the White Sox are sitting multiple key players including their original starting pitcher in Lance Lynn in favor of the Field of Dreams game tomorrow. The Yankees are doing something similar, so I think this is a good spot to fade both Field of Dreams teams at plus money and hope to come out positive. Bailey Ober has weirdly faced the White Sox four times already this season but Reynaldo Lopez shouldn't get too deep into the game as he is not stretched out. Take the Twins as home underdogs.

N.Y. YANKEES @ KANSAS CITY | 08/11 | 2:10 PM EDT
KANSAS CITY +125
ANALYSIS: The Yankees are going with a bullpen game today but most notably the Yankees are missing many key starters the day before the Field of Dreams game. Gary Sanchez, Anthony Rizzo, Gleyber Torres, and Gio Urshela are all out of the lineup for various different reasons. Brady Singer is coming off the IL and he didn’t pitch well against the Yankees in his first start against them but this is a much easier lineup to navigate. The Yankees are only 23-19 as road favorites while the Royals are 13-13 as home underdogs. The Royals are actually much better at home at 29-26.
 

BMR Service Plays

If you have been betting sports for even a short time then you know all about paid professional touts, otherwise known as sports handicappers. It's a shadowy business but there are thousands of handicappers who will happily charge you for their sports picks. Whether it is the NFL, college football, NBA, college hoops, NHL, soccer, or matches in MMA, tennis, golf, even auto racing, their expert opinions are for sale.

But how good are these guys? Like anything else, there is good, bad, and plenty in-between. The marketing come-ons are priceless and some of them will want you to believe they have never had a losing day. The implication is, the more you pay the more valuable that pick is, and many come with guarantees. The only problem is that very rarely does the customer get a refund if the pick loses, he just gets another pick…only this time it's "free".

Transparency is everything and there are professional cappers who are honest regarding their records and don't claim to win every game. But separating the wheat from the chaff is tough to do in this industry so Bookmakers Review neither endorses nor promotes any paid handicapper on our site. The opinions you see expressed in our Service Plays Forum are disseminated by the posters who have acquired this information by either paying for the service themselves or finding out through other means.

Of course, there are free sports picks that paid touts release in order to generate interest in their service. Their predictions are predicated on their experience in the industry and their ability to correctly handicap games. The implied value in having to purchase their information is what teases curiosity and brings bettors to the table to find out if they are truly better than the average sports bettor.

The use of this information is for entertainment purposes and should in no way be construed as an endorsement or an entity affiliated with Bookmakers Review. Check the federal, state, and local laws in your area and avoid where prohibited.

What's a Letter Grade?

Handicappers who charge for their daily selections whether it be basketball, MLB, major bowl games, soccer, Stanley Cup, or whatever season is current, normally have a grading system. Posts from our members will identify the level of the sports tips in terms of A as the weakest and then B, C, D, etc. Oftentimes these threads will be titled with the name of the handicapper, as the more popular paid handicappers will get substantially more views which are also indicated in the thread.

Other times, there will be posts from users who collect information at several online gambling sites and will create a thread that is often titled Service Plays of the Day. These threads will routinely have the date accompanying the sports picks so our guests can understand whether this information is for today's picks or dates in the past or future.

There will either be a moneyline, a total, or a point spread attached to each pick but you should understand that getting a sharp line and the best odds are critical to long term success so make certain that the odds stated are reasonable and not an idyllic number that never existed at any sportsbook, anywhere in the world. The information contained is from the posters here at BMR and not directly from the source. Many times the paid handicappers and their sports betting picks will be found in a number of threads throughout the forum.

Poster Interaction

The best part of the Service Plays Forum is that it is dynamic and allows our users to interact with each other. Today a particular handicapper might be running white-hot while a check of another capper could prove the opposite. The regular visitors will be able to determine who is better at which sport and how often do they cover. All opinions are welcome and you will often see fascinating information from the posters themselves who often know more than many of those providing the paid tips.

One thing that is prohibited is the direct writeups from the paid cappers. Only the picks are revealed and the letter grade assigned. BMR prohibits copying and pasting the analysis used to derive these selections but the conclusions and predictions are freely shared on our pages. Some paid handicappers will use statistics and analysis while others are more casual as to why they chose Team A or Team B.

Whatever sport you happen to be interested in, there are paid cappers willing to sell their opinions but it is important to be aware that many of them are powered more towards marketing and less to intense analytical scrutiny and betting trends. The best cappers will keep an honest log of their picks and will be fully transparent so that even if they lose an NBA, MLB, college bowl game, or a football game, for example, the legitimate cappers will acknowledge it and not attempt to bury it in their record.

Like the average bettor, paid cappers run hot and cold, whether it is a daily play or throughout a full season. Some of the best cappers stick to one sport like the NBA but most will sell their daily opinions on whichever sport is in session. And if you are not sure then ask around and pick a poster's brain familiar with the industry and the touts who get paid to make their customers money. All questions are welcome.

Lastly, it is important you do a bit of due diligence of your own before making a bet. The best bettors understand that they are as only as good as their last winner and today is a brand new day. Sports betting takes time and energy but it can be enjoyable and lucrative if you remain disciplined. And remember to make sure you check out the odds at more than just one site so when you view these threads and the picks from these "sports betting experts" make certain the odds are correct because if you do, it won't be long before you will be able to distinguish between the scamdicappers and the true handicappers.
