Posted by 3 p.m. eastern on weekdays; 10 a.m. eastern on weekends.
I will get to my analysis in just a moment, but first...
My $10 bettors up $18,620 over the last 77 days. A little less than $19 Grand in 11 weeks. That's less than three months. And that's after a loss on last night's total between Cleveland and Boston.
Tonight I look to baseball, with my 60 Dime Winner # 7 of 10, after hitting totals the last three of the last four nights.

My free play is on the Milwaukee Brewers against the New York Mets. A little bit of a price to lay, but I don't mind it, as I like the surging Brew Crew to roll.
The red-hot Brew Crew have won three straight and sit three games above the Pittsburgh Pirates in the National League Central. The Brewers have been able to distance themselves in what became a bottleneck for a bit, in the middle of the standings.
But Milwaukee has won three straight and eight of 10, while compiling an impressive 18-10 mark on the road. The Brewers are now 13-9 at home, after sweeping the Diamondbacks at Miller Park.
New York arrives mired in a two-game skid, and could struggle in trying to solve the league's second-best ERA (3.34).
Take Milwaukee in this one.
Houston at CLEVELAND (8un, -115)

Easy winner last night on the diamond, as 50 Dime Winner # 3 in a Row - Marlins-Mets hold well UNDER the total. You got that winner for just $7.77.
Thursday winner is lined up on another total, and if you are reading this, the game has not started.
Had a 50 Dimer on the Phils-Cards Under last Thursday night. Also had a 50 Dimer on the Yanks-Royals Under last Friday night, and you got both winners as the Triple Seven - $7.77 Special.
Time to cash in with another MLB total.
50 Dime MLB Total of the Month - Part 4 goes out for Thursday.
Easiest Under on the Wednesday board.
Let's get right down to it!
Thursday comp play is Under in the Astros-Indians game.
After a quick pair of interleague games versus the Giants, Houston heads to Progressive Field to resume another series with a Cleveland team that they just played 3 games against from the 18th through the 20th at Minute Maid Park.
The Astros and Indians played 2 of those 3 Under the total, as Houston's Under run stands at 13-3-1 overall their last 17 games played!
The Indians are on a 4-2 Under run that includes that set in Houston, and it should be noted that one of those Unders was when Charlie Morton and Mike Clevinger were on the mound, a 4-1 final that night.
Both pitchers sport ERA's under 3 for their last 3 starts, and for the season 6 of Morton's 9 starts, and 5 of Clevinger's 9 starts have landed Under the posted price.
Can't expect too many runs to be scored today, that is for sure.

The Boston Celtics come through clutch last night, nailing my third 500♦ NBA play in four releases.
Tonight I make 4 of 5 with the Warriors-Rockets.
Look, it's been rough, and I know it. This is one of those times you have no choice but to buckle down and forge ahead.
Nobody feels worse about a losing run than me. It's not something you plan for, it's not something you expect - but it happens. And I'll get through this, and emerge. It's what I've always done. What I've done for 36 years.
And since Nov. 12, 2016, my $1 players have made $59,376.
Now I'm coming back tonight with 500♦ NBA Winner # 4 of 5.
I love one play tonight, and it's on the playoff hardwood.

Real short with my free play for Thursday night, as I like the Texas Rangers to get it done over the Kansas City Royals.
Bibens-Dirkx is on his way to the mound from Triple-A Round Rock to make his season debut. This kid made his big-league debut last season, but hasn't been up this year. That'll make it hard on the Royals to get a decent scouting report from his off-season work.
The right-hander made eight starts at Triple-A, and while he was just 2-3 with a 3.72 ERA, he struck out 32 over 38 2/3 innings.
Bibens-Dirkx wil handcuff the Royals and keep the damage to a minimum.
