Cavs vs Knicks
-1½ -110 at betonline
Play Type: Top Premium

My 10* Situational Stunner is on the NY Knicks at 7:05 ET.

Two of the East's worst teams square off tonight at MSG, as the 4-8 Cleveland Cavaliers take on the 3-10 NY Knicks. The Cavaliers come to New York having dropped three straight, after losing 114-95 to Philadelphia at home on Sunday afternoon. The Knicks were off on Sunday, after suffering a last-second 103-102 loss Saturday night to the visiting Charlotte Hornets.

The Cavs' last win came over the Knicks, 108-87 in New York back on Nov 10. The Cavs took an 18-point halftime lead in that one, as Collin Sexton finished with 31 points on 10 of 16 shooting. Sexton is in his second season and is averaging 18.2 PPG, tying him with Kevin Love (18.2 & 12.1) for the team lead. Love scored just 12 points in Sunday's loss, after averaging 20.5 in his previous two games. Center Tristan Thompson (14.9 & 10.5) was just a rebound shy of his ninth double-double of the season (12 & 9) against Philly. Cleveland has a fourth double-digit scorer in guard Clarkson (14.8).

New York owns its only two wins this month over improving Dallas but has yet to post back-to-back victories this season. The Knicks followed a Nov 8 win at Dallas with the above-mentioned home loss to the Cavs and then after beating Dallas again this past Thursday, lost 103-102 to visiting Charlotte on Friday. The Knicks could not hold an eight-point lead in the final six minutes, as the Hornets won on a three-pointer with 2.8 seconds remaining. “We didn’t take the game,” Knicks forward Julius Randle told the New York Post. “We let them stay around instead of us really taking the game.” Randle (15.5-9.5-3.9) leads the team in rebounds and assists, while fellow forward Morris (18.2 & 5.9) leads in scoring, with rookie RJ Barrett justifying being picked third overall in last June’s draft by averaging 15.8-5.8-3.8.

The Knicks were riding high after beating the Mavs on Thursday night and then leading by as many as 15 points Saturday vs Charlotte, before 'spitting out the bit.' I doubt I'll be 'on' the Knicks very often this season but they are catching the Cavs on the second of a back-to-back and if head coach David Fizdale can't get his team to win in a spot like this, his 'seat' will go from 'hot' to 'boiling.' Cleveland is 'ripe for the taking' in this one and I'll back the Knicks.

Good luck...Larry

Chiefs vs Chargers
-4 -110 at Mirage
Play Type: Top Premium

My 10* Rivalry Rout is on the KC Chiefs at 8:15 ET.

The Kansas City Chiefs won the AFC West with a 12-4 record in 2018 behind a MVP performance by QB Patrick Mahomes. KC then opened 2019 win FOUR straight wins, averaging 33.8 PPG with Mahomes averaging 377.5 YPG passing with 10 TDs and zero INTs. However, the Colts and Texans then 'solved' Mahomes to some extent, handing KC back-to-back losses. KC visited Denver for a Thursday game to kick off Week 7 and while the Chiefs won 30-6, Mahomes suffered a dislocated right kneecap. Moore filled in admirably for Mahomes the next two games, with KC losing a hard-fought game to Green Bay but then edged the Vikings, 26-23. Mahomes didn't miss a beat in his return from that two-game absence, completing a career-high 36 passes for 446 yards and three TDs but Kansas City lost 35-32 at Tennessee. The Chiefs' once sizable advantage in the AFC West is now gone, following losses in FOUR of their last six games. The 6-4 Chiefs look to stem the tide on Monday night when they travel to Mexico City to face the Los Angeles Chargers, tied with the 6-4 Oakland Raiders for first-place in the division. The 4-6 LA Chargers saw their two-game "mini" winning streak end in Week 10, losing 26-24 at Oakland. Philip Rivers entered Week 11 leading the league in passing yards (2,816) but was also third in interceptions (10). He had three in LA's last game against Oakland, including a "pick-6" that loomed large in that 26-24 loss. The Chargers were among the league's better teams in not committing turnovers the last two seasons but they have 16 giveaways this season and their TO ratio of minus-6 is better than only FIVE teams. More notably,  FIVE of their turnovers have occurred in goal-to-go situations! Last year's game between the Chiefs and Rams was relocated to Los Angeles less than a week before the game when the field at Mexico City's Azteca Stadium was deemed unplayable because of rain and the stadium having hosted concerts less than a month before the game. Both coaches said they have received favorable updates about the turf going into the game. The Chargers have spent the week at the Air Force Academy in Colorado Springs to get acclimated to the altitude, while the Chiefs have kept their same routine. Mahomes enters this game with no health issues and KC has to be thrilled with the play of WR Tyreek Hill. He become the first player in franchise history to record at least 140 receiving yards and a touchdown in consecutive games, as he followed up his 140-yard effort in a 26-23 win over Minnesota on Nov 3 (with Moore at QB) with a career-best 11 catches for 157 yards and one TD against the Titans (Mahomes was back at QB for that one). RB Damien Williams had a season-high 24 touches resulting in 109 scrimmage yards (77 rushing, 32 receiving) against Tennessee. His backfield partner McCoy could use more work, as he's averaging 5.2 YPA but has a modest 72 carries on the season. Mahomes has a deep group of receivers, as besides Hill, there is TE Klece (56 catches), Watkins (40 catches despite missing two games) plus Hardman and Robinson. The KC defense is allowing 148.1 YPG on the ground (30th) and 23.9 PPG on the season (20th). Sure Rivers is on pace for another 4,000-yard season (maybe 4,500 yards?) but the running game has given him little support all season (86.1 YPG ranks 25th) and the Chargers come in averaging a very modest 20.7 PPG (21st). Melvin Gordon did rush for a season-high 108 yards in the loss at Oakland but he's still averaging just 3.5 YPA and I'm not even a little convinced he's back to being the player we saw from 2016-18. The D is good though, allowing 19.4 PPG (6th) on 318.3 YPG (5th). This is a HUGE game for KC, as the Chirefs have a bye in Week 12 and then in Week 13, will host the Raiders. The Raiders are at the Jets this coming Sunday, so could very well move to 7-4, meaning if KC doesn't win here, the Chiefs could be a game back of the Raiders in that Week 13 contest. Mahomes had little troiuble against LA's defense last season, passing for six TDs and zero INTs, posting QB ratings of 127.5 and 110.3. Yes, the Chargers did beat the Chiefs 29-28 in a Week 15 contest but that win eended a NINE-game losing streak for the Chargers against the Chiefs. "Series form" returns here, as KC gets the win AND cover! Good luck...Larry

Age: 65 (turns 66 in November).

Years in handicapping: Larry entered his 36th year as a professional handicapper in August of 2019.

Achievements in handicapping: 1985 Castaway’s Pro Football Challenge Champion, then the most prestigious handicapping contest in Las Vegas; 1999 Stardust Invitational semi-finalist.

A member of the original cast of Proline (began in 1985), the nation’s longest running pre-game handicapping show on the USA-TV network (also hosted Sports Desk on the same network from 1996-98). In then joined the panel of The Winning Edge in the early 2000s. Although well-known on TV for his expert game analysis and no-nonsense handicapping style, Larry may be best known for his radio work. He hosted his own syndicated call-in radio show, Sports Central. It aired live from Bally's Casino in Las Vegas in the early to mid-90s and at one time was heard in more than 100 markets.

Systems used for handicapping a game: Fundamental and statistical analysis. "I'm not typically a trend and system kind of guy," Ness says. "I look at team strengths and weaknesses and compare them. It’s an all-encompassing thing and over 35-plus years, you get good at it."

Star Ratings: 9 and 10*s are considered "Best Bets." All other plays are rated between 6 and 8*s, depending on strength and/or price.

Release Times: Larry releases "daily sports" (MLB, NBA, NCAAB and NHL) on the day of the game. His full card is almost always available by 10:00 ET (save Late-Breaking games). In the FB season, Larry begins releasing plays as early as Tuesday. His full CFB card is typically complete by Thursday (on Friday, at the latest) and his full NFL card will be mostly complete by Friday (definitely by Saturday at 3:00 ET). 36-Club Play: It represents Larry's 36 years in the business and gets his highest star rating (10*s). Expect no more than one of these plays per month, per sport during the regular season. LEGEND Play: Larry's often been referred to as a Las Vegas legend and he's 'borrowed' the title for his other "signature play.". Larry's LEGEND Plays were previously available to only a select group of private clients but they are now available to all, via the internet. Like his 36-Club plays, expect no more than one play per month, per sport (rated 10*s). Game of the Month and Game of the Year Plays: Always rated 10*s. Las Vegas Insider: Throughout his 36 years "in the business," Larry has become known as "the ultimate Las Vegas insider." The contacts he's developed over more than three decades (on both sides of the 'counter'), are arguably "unmatched!" He confers daily with 'his 'friends' and when "all the stars align on the same game," Larry releases an exclusive Las Vegas Insider (rated between 7 and 10*s). Oddsmaker's Error Plays: Larry uses this term with "great respect" (and not very often), as he counts among his very closest friends many of Las Vegas' most famous and respected Sport Book directors (past and present). However, when Larry feels "the line is significantly off," he'll release one of these "not to be missed" plays (rated 9 or 10*s). Situational Stunners: Larry's a fundamental handicapper at heart but he does pay attention to team and situational trends (especially in MLB). When his fundamental handicapping and a strong trend or situation match up, he releases a Situational Stunner. He began releasing these plays in MLB '09 and he's expanded them since,to all sports (rated from 7-10*s, based on strength and/or price for moneyline sports). PERFECT STORM: Larry just added these plays the last few years and his accompanying expert analysis makes these popular plays self-explanatory (typically rated 9 or 10*s but moneyline sports may be rated 7 or 8*s due to price). Weekly and Weekend Wipeout Winners: Larry added this self-explanatory moniker just a few years ago. They've become immensely popular and why not? Who wouldn't want a game that has "blowout written all over it," supported by Larry's expert analysis (rated between 7 and 10*s, depending on strength and price). Superstar Triple Play: Over the years, many of Larry's regular clients have clamored for more three-game reports. You asked for it and Larry's responded. Back in the late 1980s and into the mid 1990s, 900-numbers became "the rage." While a panel member of Proline (see above), Larry created the Superstar Triple Play. One call got you three Superstar Triple Plays (in a particular sport). For almost a decade, anywhere from 1,500 to 3,500 callers responded each weekend, when Larry offered his famous "Superstar Triple Play" pitch on Proline. Starting in 2009, Larry began going "Back to the Future!" Look for 3-game reports this FB season on Saturday (college) and Sunday (NFL). Get three plays on a single report from Larry (many will be TV games), the originator of the "Superstar Triple Play!". Late-Breaking Plays: Larry will always go back and take a "second look" at each day's card, after posting all his games. When he finds something he missed the first time around, he'll release a Late-Breaking Play. These plays are more prevalent in sports like baseball and basketball than football (typically rated at 8 or 9*s).

Quote: "No one works any harder and my work-product speaks for itself," Ness says. "I have a no-nonsense style and my logic is easy to follow. Anyone buying my plays will know exactly what I was thinking when I made the selection. After 34 years, the Larry Ness brand is instantly recognizable and my analysis ranks with the best in the industry."
