Sevilla Draw No Bet
Game: (224325) Sevilla at (224326) Wolfsburg
Date/Time: Sep 29 2021 3:00 PM EDT
Betting Line Provider: Consensus Line
Play Rating: B units
Play: Sevilla 0.0 (-125)

I was on the under last week in Wolfsburg's game against Hoffenheim, and even though you shouldn't let one game sway your opinion, I watched that whole game and I was NOT impressed with what I saw. Wolfsburg opened the season with four-straight wins, but things have cooled down dramatically. They were out-shot 17-2 on Match Day 1 against Lille and didn't put a single shot on target. That four-win start to the season appears to be a product of playing some really poor opposition.
Sevilla will be a big step up in class for the German side. Sevilla is unbeaten so far this season, picking up four wins and three draws. Sevilla has so much experience in this European competition over the last decade. They won the Europa League in 2014, 2015, 2016 and 2020. They advanced to the Champions League quarterfinals in 2018. Julen Lopetegui has experience guiding Real Madrid and the Spanish National Team. They are a squad built for this competition. Sevilla has not lost in their last seven European road matches, and that includes trips to Dortmund, Chelsea and Bayern Munich. Those atmospheres are a lot more intimidating than the one Sevilla will see this afternoon.
At the time of posting, Sevilla draw-no-bet is available at Pinnacle (-119); Barstool (-121); Circa (-122) and FanDuel (-124). If this game ends in a draw, we get our money back. If you're feeling a little adventurous, take a shot at the 1-0 Sevilla correct score market.

MLB Sharp Action

3:10 p.m. ET: Washington Nationals (65-93) at Colorado Rockies (72-85)

These non-division opponents have split the first two games of the series, with the Nats stealing the opener 5-4 as + 150 road dogs and then the Rockies bouncing back with a 3-1 win on Tuesday, cashing as -130 home favorites. In this afternoon's rubber match, the Nationals hand the ball to righty Paolo Espino (5-5, 4.01 ERA) and the Rockies counter with fellow righty Peter Lambert (0-0, 4.91 ERA). This line opened at a pick'em with both sides listed at -105 odds. The public is split and doesn't know who to back, yet we've seen the Rockies tick up from -105 to -112. This signals some respected money leaning on Colorado at home. Short home favorites -130 or less are 256-197 (57 percent) this season. Non-division home favorites are 490-310 (61 percent). The Rockies are 47-33 at home this season. The Nats are 30-50 on the road. The home plate ump, Quinn Wolcott, is 125-96 (57 percent) to the home team historically. We've also seen pros lean on this under. The total opened at a super high 12.5 and has been bet down to 12. The under is 2-0 this series and 4-1 in the five head-to-head matchups this season. The forecast calls for low 70s with 10-12 MPH winds blowing in from dead center.

7:10 p.m. ET: Miami Marlins (64-93) at New York Mets (75-82)

The Mets swept yesterday's doubleheader against the Marlins, winning 5-2 as -190 home favorites and 2-1 as -140 home favorites. It marked the 7th straight loss for Miami. In tonight's rematch, the Marlins start righty Elieser Hernandez (1-3, 4.24 ERA) and the Mets rebuttal with fellow righty Taijuan Walker (7-11, 4.57 ERA). This line opened with New York listed as a -155 home favorite and Miami a + 140 road dog. Sharps have gotten down on the Mets to carry yesterday's momentum into today, steaming New York up from -155 to -170. Home favorites receiving steam 10-cents or more are 389-249 (61 percent) this season. The Mets are 46-33 at home this season. The Marlins are 24-55 on the road. New York also has value as a bigger favorite with a low total (7.5). Betting theory states that the fewer amount of expected runs scored, the more likely they are to come from the better team. We could be looking at a low scoring game in this one. The total is 7.5 with the under juiced to -120, signaling a possible fall to 7. The under is 3-1 the last four meetings head-to-head. The forecast calls for 65 degrees with 7-10 MPH winds blowing in from left center.

8:10 p.m. ET: Cincinnati Reds (82-76) at Chicago White Sox (90-68)

The White Sox took last night's Interleague Series opener 7-1, cashing as -175 home favorites. In tonight's rematch, the Reds give the ball to righty Sonny Gray (7-8, 3.99 ERA) and the White Sox counter with lefty Carlos Rodon (12-5, 2.47 ERA). This line opened with Chicago listed as a -155 home favorite and Cincinnati a + 140 road dog. Pros are expecting more of the same from last night, steaming the White Sox up from -155 to 165. Home favorites off a win are 510-328 (61 percent) this season. Home favorites receiving 10-cents of steam or more are 393-249 (61 percent). The White Sox also have value as an interleague favorite with a line move in their favor. Chicago is 50-27 at home this season. The Reds are 38-39 on the road. Sharps are also betting on a low scoring game, as we've seen the total fall from 8.5 to 8. The forecast calls for low 70s with wind blowing in from left center at 7-10 MPH. The under is 3-0 between these teams this season. The under is 4-1 in the last five White Sox games. The under is 12-3 in the last 15 games games for Cincinnati on the road.

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.
