Flames vs Stars

Play Type: Top Premium

ASA TOP PLAY 10* on Calgary Flames Money Line (+) over Dallas Stars, Tuesday at 5:30 PM ET

The Stars scored a total of only 4 goals in regulation time of their 3 games in the round robin.  This is a Dallas team that has just one win in its last nine games and that win came in the shootout Sunday against St Louis.  The Stars only sent it to the shootout courtesy of a very late goal with just a minute left in the game.  The last win in regulation time for Dallas came all the way back on February 25th.  Calgary comes into this game surging and already in playoff mode as, while the Stars were playing round robin games, the Flames were playing in a best of five qualifying round series against Winnipeg.  Not only did Calgary close out the Jets in 4 games, they scored an average of 4 goals per game!  Yes, the Flames have averaged 4 goals per game since action resumed while the Stars have totaled only 4 goals since action resumed.  Big difference and, per our computer math model, the Flames skill in the offensive zone proves to be the difference maker as they take Game One of this series.  ASA PLAY 10* Calgary Flames on the money line in early evening action Tuesday.

ASA FREE PLAY on Tampa Bay Lightning Money Line (-) over Columbus Blue Jackets, Tuesday at 3:00 PM ET

This line is a little too pricey to make our official card of releases but we'll use it here as we do feel it still offers some value for those willing to lay a money line price.  The situation is definitely strong with Columbus off their huge upset win of the Maple Leafs in Game 5 of their qualifying round series on Sunday.  Now the Blue Jackets have set up a rematch with the same team they swept out of the post-season in round one last year.  Keep in mind, that followed a massive regular season for the Lightning as they were the #1 seed and had piled up huge points in the regular season.  Yes the Bolts wish Stamkos and Hedman were healthy but this is still a very strong hockey club nonetheless.  Revenge is big here for Tampa Bay and they catch the Blue Jackets off a huge effort Sunday to upset the Maple Leafs.  Set ups don't get much better than this and consider TB in this spot early Tuesday.  ASA FREE PLAY: Bet Tampa Bay on the money line Tuesday.

Rockets vs Spurs
UNDER 233½ -110 Won
Play Type: Top Premium

ASA top play 10* on UNDER 233.5 Houston Rockets vs. San Antonio Spurs, 2PM ET We like the Under in this day game between these two Texas rivals. Both have incentive to play here with the Rockets jockeying for seeding position and the Spurs fighting for a chance to get into the post-season for the 23rd straight year. In the Bubble games the Rockets defense has been much better than the regular season version as they have allowed just 1.076 points per possession in their five Bubble games compared to 1.100PPP they give up on the season. On the year the Rockets have been average in effective field goal percentage defense but in their last three games they are allowing just 49% EFG% shooting which is second best in the NBA over that 3-game span. The Rockets have given up 110, 97 and 112 points in their last three games. We do not see the Rockets putting up huge offensive numbers here without James Harden or Daniel House Jr. in the lineup. San Antonio is fighting for the 8th or 9th seed in the West and are essentially in a must win situation. That is a lot of pressure for a young team without their best offensive player LaMarcus Aldridge who did not come to the Bubble. San Antonio has some inflated scoring and defensive numbers in the Bubble with a pair of exceedingly high scoring games against Denver and Philly which has skewed this number higher than it should be. These two teams met twice in December and produced 216 and 268 total points. The 268-point game was an OT thriller and the two teams produced 38-points so in reality that game would have finished with less total points than today’s Total set by Vegas. The Under has cashed in 7 of the last nine meetings and we predict another Under here.

Nationals vs Mets
OVER 8½ -111 Lost
Play Type: Top Premium

ASA TOP PLAY 10* ON OVER the Total - Washington Nationals @ New York Mets, Tuesday at 7:10 PM ET

The Nationals Max Scherzer left his last start, also against the Mets, after just 1 inning due to tightness in a hamstring. Certainly Scherzer is a great pitcher but that is when he is healthy. He is not 100% and the hamstring is on his mind. This is a road start for him against a division rival that is familiar with him. The Mets lost yesterday's game to Washington by a final score of 16-4 and New York's last 7 home games have totaled an average of 11 runs per game. In this one we get an O/U of only 8.5 runs to work with as Scherzer's long-term reputation carries weight of course and keeps this total lower than it should be per our computer math model. Rick Porcello gets the start for the Mets here and is off of a strong start against the Nationals but he was fortunate as he gave up a lot of hard contact. Of course hard contact and Porcello go hand in hand! Prior to his start against Washington, Porcello was 0-1 with a 13.50 ERA in his first two starts this season. He entered this season off a 14-12 year last season but that was thanks to run support as Porcello had a 5.52 ERA on the campaign! The Nationals exploded for 16 runs on 17 hits in yesterday's big win and will be very confident at the plate this evening as a result of yesterday's success plus the fact they just faced Porcello last week. Bet the OVER in the New York Mets game in early evening action Tuesday.

Pacers vs Rockets
-8 -104 at pinnacle
Play Type: Top Premium

ASA top play 10* on: Houston Rockets -8 over Indiana Pacers, 4PM ET You know the old saying, “when something looks to good to be true, it isn’t”. That’s the case with this line on the Rockets vs. Pacers game as the line is much higher than it should be and is attracting public money on Indiana. In true contrarian fashion we will bet opposite and play on the Rockets. We feel the Rockets desperately want to hold on to the 4 or 5 seed and avoid the two Los Angeles teams and the red-hot Nuggets in the first round. A win here essentially locks up the 4/5 seed for Houston. The Rockets played yesterday and were embarrassed by the Spurs with James Harden on the bench. The NBA’s leading scorer is expected to suit up today for the Rockets and can literally carry this team like he’s done so often in the past. The Pacers have several starters listed as doubtful today with Turner, Oladipo, Brogdon questionable and TJ Warren listed as out. That tells us the Pacers aren’t as interested in this game as they are Friday’s against the Miami Heat who they will likely face in the first round of the Playoffs. The Rockets hold slight advantages in both offensive and defensive efficiency numbers in the Bubble games and will squeak out a double-digit win here.

Cubs vs Indians

Play Type: Top Premium

ASA TOP PLAY 10* ON Cleveland Indians Money Line (-) vs Chicago Cubs, Wednesday at 6:10 PM ET

Look for the Indians to bounce right back from yesterday's 7-1 home loss.  The Cubs start Kyle Hendricks here and his road struggles have continued.  Last season he was great at Wrigley Field but went 5-8 with a 5.02 ERA away from home.  Opponents hit .290 against Hendricks when he was on the road.  This season he has made 3 starts and the home outings went fine but his road outing saw him allow 6 earned runs in just 4 and 1 / 3 innings.  The Indians had won 5 of 6 games prior to yesterday's loss and Cleveland has averaged scoring 8.3 runs per game in their last 3 victories.  The offense is showing some life and their bullpen has been among the best in the majors early this season.  Additionally they hand the ball to a starter in great current form for this one.  Carlos Carrasco gets the call here and the same Reds team that just clobbered Hendricks when they faced him was absolutely handcuffed by Carrasco.  He held them to 1 hit in 6 innings while striking out 8.  Carrasco dealt with injury issues last season but he has put all that behind him and looks like the same pitcher that went 46-24 with a 3.32 ERA from 2016 to 2018.  The Cubs are off to a great start this season but have been fortunate with a home-heavy schedule.  Chicago is known for being much better at home than on the road.  The Cubs entered last night's contest at Cleveland having gone 1-2 in their 3 most recent road games and Chicago was outscored 25-9 in those 2 losses.  The Indians respond after last night's loss and their pitching edge and home field edge lead the way in this one.  Indians were 17 games over .500 at home last season while the Cubs were 15 games under .500 in road games last season.  Per our computer math model, this situation is offering tremendous line value considering all of the above factors.  The forecast here is a home rout.  Bet the Cleveland Indians on the money line for a TOP PLAY in early evening action Wednesday.

Islanders vs Capitals
+119 at pinnacle
Play Type: Top Premium

ASA TOP PLAY 10* on New York Islanders Money Line (+) over Washington Capitals, Wednesday at 3:00 PM ET

We'll take the teacher over the pupil in this one.  The Islanders are coached by Barry Trotz.  He led the Capitals to the Stanley Cup Championship two years ago.  Then that summer Washington wouldn't give him the contract he wanted (and, arguably) had earned via leading the Caps to win it all!  Trotz ended up with the Islanders and his assistant, Todd Rierden, is now the Capitals coach.  The Islanders are off a fantastic effort against the Panthers in which they dominated Florida throughout much of the series which lasted only 4 games.  New York plays a defensive style that stifles and frustrates opponents and that will be the key again here.  The Capitals were not very impressive in their level of play in the round robin that preceded this series for them.  Trotz certainly knows many of the Washington players and their tendencies very well and he is a very good coach.  Additionally, the Islanders have won 6 of the last 8 playoff series between these teams but lost the most recent one between these teams in 2015.  Per our computer math model, payback begins here with a Game One upset win for the underdog in this one.  ASA PLAY New York Islanders on the money line in afternoon action Wednesday.  


The owners of American Sports Analysts (ASAwins), Lee Kostroski & Mike Merlet, have a combined 50+ years in the sports betting industry. Both started with Doc’s Enterprises, Lee in the late 80’s and Mike in the early 90’s. After learning the handicapping trade from one of the oldest in the business, they started ASA Inc in 1997 and have been going strong ever since. They have been known throughout the industry for their success on BIG GAMES including their 10* Midwest Game of the Year. ASA is located in Madison, WI and a foundation of their handicapping prowess revolves around the heart of the country – especially the Big Ten.

ASAwins has appeared on numerous radio shows throughout the country as special expert football guests including Tampa, New Orleans, Madison, Milwaukee, Memphis, Las Vegas, and Denver just to name a few. They were also featured on the ESPN website with gaming writer Chad Millman during the 2011 season.

ASAwins handicapping methods have evolved through years of with hard work and research being the anchor of their success. Rather than implementing one specific strategy as many handicappers do, they intertwine many different philosophies when it comes to making football, basketball, hockey, and baseball selections. They utilize their massive database that goes back over 30 years and can give them in depth information on any situation you can think of when it comes to handicapping. That’s not where they stop, however. They also research stats and film each week to evaluate the upcoming match ups on the field along with speaking with their personal contacts throughout the country (especially in the Midwest). On top of that, they analyze each point spread (and their movements) comparing them with their own power ratings to find where an edge might be found. Lastly, their predictive analytics or math models predict the outcomes of games based solely on numbers and statistics that aren’t swayed by the human element. So, as you can see, just because a game may fall into a successful system or the scheduling looks good to go against or with a certain team, that doesn’t mean that ASA automatically uses it as a selection. It must go through their in-depth process with all things considered before they give it the ASA stamp of approval. Looking at games from all these angles gives ASA the best of all worlds when it comes to handicapping. Their handicapping theories have proven successful over the years which has them as one of the more tenured experts in the industry.

Lee & Mike at ASAwins have stood the test of time in an industry that makes it very tough to do so. Their 50+ years of experience will give you the WINNING EDGE you need. Sports wagering is an investment and it’s time you invest in the known commodity of ASAwins!
