pujols power

An interesting bet for Albert Pujols to reach 700 career home runs this season has been floating on some books, posted on whether he will reach or fall short of the milestone.

On August 24, when he was just shy of seven, despite a recent hot streak, the online site (not licensed in Missouri or Illinois) had chances to reach 700 on a rough 9-1. Betting that he wouldn’t get there was a huge favorite to try to win $100 on the then-2000 ($2,000).

The script has now changed considerably, going into Friday’s game with 18 he was just three short of the milestone.

Some field books are now on the prop, but bets must be placed before the Cardinals begin play. On Thursday afternoon, DraftKings had a “yes” at +130 with a “no” ($130 profit on $100 risk) reaching -165 at 700 ($165 risk required to win $100). In FanDuel, “yes” was -201 and “no” at +168. After Pujols was homeless for the third game in a row on Thursday night, the price in FanDuel by Friday afternoon had dropped to -188 for his 700 reach and +152 for not getting there. Pujol odds were not posted to DraftKings or Argosy at the time.

No gold mine to bet on Goldschmidt

Argosi ​​had the odds available, however, as the National League MVP in the race and the Cardinals’ Paul Goldschmidt. awesome Favorite – a huge -3335. This means that a successful $100 bet will only yield a profit of $3. Teammate Nolan Arenado was the second favorite, and the difference was huge. Arenado was at +3500, so winning a bet of $100 on it would generate a profit of $3,500.

At DraftKings, Goldschmidt was at -2500 – winning a $100 bet would make a whopping $4 profit. Arenado was +3500 there too. No NL odds were posted for MVP on FanDuel.

watch the tigers

Missouri is playing FCS team Abilene Christian on Saturday and as of Friday afternoon there were no lines available on that football game in the field books.

However, WynnBet posted a line in which Mizzou got 31½ points with more/less than 56. That book is legal in nine states, the closest to St. Louis being Indiana and Tennessee.

hard time

Last week we started poorly, leading 1-3 in our selection and losing five units depending on the ranking of our selection (they can range from one • to five •••••).

There were some bad beats, as we had over 64.5 points in the Tennessee-Pittsburgh game. 41 points were scored in the first half, but Pitt’s QB was injured and did not return after halftime. Then his backup was put on hold for much of the fourth quarter. Scoring slowed down and fell short of the total, despite the game going into overtime.

We had an over (52) at the Chargers-Raiders game on Sunday and although the teams marched up and down the field, three interceptions thrown by Derrick Carr of Vegas resulted in both teams averaging at least 5.5 yards per game. Overall well kept.

But enough is behind. If you don’t have the stomach – or more importantly, the proper bankroll allocation – you have no business betting to endure such instances. Situations like this come up time and again, and one long Way to go in football season.

weekend picks

It’s time to bounce back (the odds are the best that were available on Friday afternoon in three field sportsbooks):

State of Mississippi in the State of Louisiana, Saturday at 5 p.m.: QB Will Rogers, who threw four TD passes against Arizona last week, leads the Bulldogs’ high-powered passing attack, which should feast on the LSU secondary that recently handed Florida State 7.9 yards per pass. MSU team total over 27.5 points (DraftKings, FanDuel). ,

Fresno State in Southern California, Saturday at 9:30 p.m.: The Trojans have turned the offense under new coach Lincoln Riley, passing 500 yards in both of their games and averaging 53½ points per outing. They have been particularly powerful in the first half, averaging 33 points. USC’s defense is not as strong as the offense, as it conceded 441 yards and four TDs to Stanford last week. Now Fresno brings a powerful attack to this matchup, led by pro-prospect QB Jake Hanner. We look for fireworks here, especially early. Over 36.5 (Argosi) for the first half. ,,, Plus, over 72 for the whole game (DraftKings) ,,

dolphin In Ravens, noon Sunday: Miami knocked out New England last week, but the Pats are far from their once lofty status quo. Also, dolphins were at home. Now they face the road to a tough test against a formidable defense and will have to contend with QB Lamar Jackson on the other hand, who is focused in one contract year. Ravens -3.5 (all three books) ,,
