Both teams are making a push towards wild card contention as New York Houston MLB action should be both entertaining and profitable this evening. HRWager sends greetings again to all our friends as baseball gives us profit potential. Yankees stroll into Houston winners of eight in their last ten with their ace taking the mound. Both pitchers have good momentum coming into this one but one has lost much of his control in the short term. Is this still exploitable in the 8:10 start at Minute Maid Park tonight?
New York Houston : Drastic Totals Movement
Market for moneyline has been steady as the New York price in the +120’s has been judged fair by the sharps. Tanaka (NYY) and McCullers (Hou) have good momentum and pleasant weather to pitch in. This has caused the totals market to been hit heavy in one direction. Open of 7 1/2 has been pounded on the under. Adjustment to seven has still not stopped the one way wagering on the under. So what do the sharps see here that can cause such confidence?
Concerns About McCullers
Last three games has seen him issue 12 walks. This has bloated his WHIP to 1.56 but has only resulted in an ERA of 2.56 in that stretch. He is bailing himself out with a hefty 24 strikeouts during that period of time. Houston has had the best pitching in the AL but now the surging Yankees could make a claim. Their starters is how they are staying in the race even after they sold Chapman to the highest bidder this year. Tonight Tanaka is hoping to extend his mastery on the road. 1.50 ERA is best in baseball and why the sharps have been chomping at the bit in this one.
Seven runs in the total has given the market an even split of 3 1/2 runs each on the team totals. It is odd that with Tanaka so good on the road, that the Astros are the lesser chalk on the under 3 1/2 runs near the -115 mark. The move by the sharps is absolutely correct. Dead balls will be the norm as the clement weather in Houston will dry up the runs at Minute Maid Park. Hop on the train for profit here and go the under seven runs for your bankroll boon of the day. Good fortune and we will see you next time here at HRWager.

2016 PGA Championship : TNT
This is one of the few events where the Golf Channel is shut out from. TNT kicks off the television coverage with from 1PM to 7PM on the tournament first two days. Weekend broadcast are shared by them (11AM to 2PM) with CBS taking it from there until 7PM on the final two days of the event.

When was the last time that all of golf’s Big Three attended an event where none of them were the pre tourney favorite to take it down? The oddsmakers have bestowed Dustin Johnson as the favorite to take down this title at +700. Is it a power shift or something in particular that Baltusrol Golf Club in New Jersey presents to this field that have altered the futures market from the norm of recent times?
The fourth and final major of the year is one that rewards length off of the driver. High temperatures and lots of thunderstorms have softened the course even further. All that is really needed on the checklist for greatness here is driving length, accuracy, and momentum coming into this one. This is why the first time in close to a year is that Rory McIlroy actually lives up to the low price he gets on futures. He is +800 to win this event. His four top fives in the last few months combined with his stellar strokes gained off of the tee gives him excellent value at +800 to win this. The head to head wagering option of him verse Jordan Spieth is an easy selection on Rory over the course of the tourney. Hard to go wrong with him here.
Dustin Johnson against Jordan Spieth for the tournament heads up is your other consideration. Dustin is top five in fairways hit with him being very close to the top in overall distance. His momentum coming into this one is on a career high. Select these two golfers in futures wagering and against Jordan Spieth for your weekend profit.
