San Francisco vs. Chicago, 08/22/2019 14:20 EDT

Money Line: -158 Chicago

Sportsbook: SportsBetting

The set-up: The Cubs have rolled to victory over the first two games of this series and I think the home side keeps the foot on the gas in the finale as well. Chicago has won four in a row now: "I would like to think it is coming together," Chicago president of baseball operations Theo Epstein remarked yesterday. "It is in our hands. We have a chance to go out there and play really well. You have to go out there and leave no room for doubt. We have to beat some really good teams." San Fran comes in on the other end of the spectrum, dejected after three straight losses.

The pitchers: Jeff Samardzija (9-9, 3.54 ERA) is 4-2 over his last eight starts, but he’s 0-2 with a 6.35 ERA vs. his former team.

Kyle Hendricks (8-9, 3.37) most recently allowed one run over seven innings vs. the Pirates.

The pick: It’s interesting to note that while he’s a poor 4-7 with a 4.76 ERA in 13 starts on the road this season, Hendricks is 4-2 with a 1.98 ERA in ten starts in “Friendly Confines.” I’m banking on Hendricks continuing that run of greatness at home. Consider the home side in this one.

Ottawa vs. Saskatchewan, 08/24/2019 19:00 EDT

Point Spread: +10½/-110 Ottawa

Sportsbook: Bookmaker

Saskatchewan is having a good season, winning 4 in a row and well Ottawa is not as they have now lost 6 of their L/7 overall. Tonight because of the direction and path both teams are on we get to bet into a recency bias line, that is bloated according to my power rankings charts. Despite the RedBlacks below .500 record at 3-6 Campbells troops are a hard working blue collar group that never say die and deserve my respect on a DD underdog line. Note: Ottawa has covered 14 of their L/19 as a road underdog over the last 3 seasons.

Ottawa has won and covered their L/2 visits to the Parairies and get my support here again in this spot.

SASKATCHEWAN is 4-13 ATS in home games after having won 4 out of their last 5 games since 1996.

CFL Favorites (SASKATCHEWAN) - after 3 or more consecutive straight up wins, good team, winning 60-75% or more of their games on the season are just 43-81 ATS L/22 seasons for a go against 65% conversion rate for bettors.

Play on Ottawa to cover

the iceman's free pick

Seattle vs. Los Angeles, 08/24/2019 22:00 EDT

Money Line: -145 Seattle

Sportsbook: SportsBetting

This is a Free NFLX play on Seattle.

Pete Carroll's pre-season record took a hit last season when the Seahawks went 0-4, and Seattle came up just short in a loss to Minnesota last week. The Seahawks starters looked pretty good though, and they should see a lot more time here in the third game of the pre-season. The Seahawks have won six of nine Week 3 pre-season games under Pete Carroll. The Chargers are just 3-7 in the pre-season under Anthony Lynn, and given the injury to safety Derwin James we should expect coach Lynn to be particularly cautious with his starters for the remainder of the pre-season.

Take SEA.
