Bucks vs Raptors
-2 -110 at sportsbook
Play Type: Top Premium

Bucks @ Raptors 7:00 PM ET

Game# 549-550

Play On: Raptors -2.0 (10*)

The Bucks are 10-1 SU&ATS during these 2019 NBA Playoffs, and that includes 4-0 SU&ATS in away games. Yet, they find themselves as an underdog against a Toronto team which despite reaching the Eastern Conference Finals is only 8-6 during postseason action. If it smells like a rat and looks like a rat, then it’s a rat. I’m not falling for the trap of being lured into taking the red-hot underdog. It’s also worth noting,

Toronto has lost the first 2-games of this series, and they’ve suffered 3 straight defeats just once this season. The last time that occurred was way back on 11/16/2018 which is a little over 6 months ago. Since that time, Toronto has gone 7-0 following 2 consecutive losses and won by a substantial margin of 15.2 points per contest.

Any NBA Playoff home favorite that playing in Game 3 of the series and is coming off away underdog ATS losses in the opening 2 games, resulted in those favorites going 44-25 (63.8%) since 2003. Taking this betting angle one step further, if those home favorites were facing an opponent with a win percentage of .730 or better, they improved to 4-0 ATS and won by 15.6 points per game. Bet on the Raptors for a 5* wager.

Play Type: Top Premium

Golden State @ Portland 9:00 ET

Game# 501-502

Play On: Portland +3.0 (10*)

Portland could easily be up 2-1 instead of down 3-0 in this series. They blew big leads in each of the last 2 games.

Since 2013, any NBA Playoff home underdog of 4.5 or less playing in a Game 4 and they’re down 3-0 in the series, resulted in those home underdogs going 7-2 SU&ATS. If those home underdogs have a win percentage of .570 or better, they improved to 4-0 SU&ATS and outscored their opponents by a decisive 13.0 points per contest. Bet on Portland plus the points for a 10* Top Play wager.

A's vs Indians
UNDER 8 +100 Lost
Play Type: Premium

A’s (Anderson) @ Indians (Carrasco) 6:10 PM ET

Game# 963-964

Play On: Under 8.0 (5*)

Oakland’s Brett Anderson has posted a dominating 0.82 ERA in 5 career starts against Cleveland. Anderson has displayed good form over his last 3 starts while collecting a respectable 1.28 WHIP. Oakland has gone over the total in just 2 of their last 9 games.

Carlos Carrasco has made 3 career home starts versus Oakland and had an outstanding 0.98 WHIP during those outings. Carrasco hasn’t yielded an earned run in his last 2 starts which has encompassed 12.0 innings pitched. If needed, Carrasco will have the supports of a Cleveland bullpen which has a brilliant 0.56 ERA during its last 7 games. The Indians have witnessed just 2 of its last 12 games staying under.

Both teams pitching has been very good during the past 7 days. Weather will be a huge influence tonight. The forecast is calling for winds of 13-15 MPH blowing in from left-center. Bet on this game to go under the total for a 5* wager.


Ross Benjamin has made his reputation in the sports handicapping industry by being one of the sharpest prognosticators over the last 15 years. In professional sports handicapper Ron Raymond’s 2008 published book “50 Greatest Sports Betting Secrets” he probably says it best. “One of the most underrated handicappers in our industry and probably one of the sharpest ones I know is Ross Benjamin.” 

One of Ross’ often used phrases when speaking publicly, “if you want to be a successful sports handicapper then start by thinking like a bookmaker”. Ross is 61 years old and has been directly involved in many capacities of the sports gaming industry for the last 31 years. However there is nothing he enjoys more than the challenge of picking winners in the NFL, NBA, MLB, NHL, NCAA Football, and NCAA Basketball.
