Las Vegas Expert Picks: NFL Week 5, NCAAF Week 6, MLB Playoffs

Vegas veteran Benjamin Eckstein, author of Americas Line, brings three years of expertise to make weekly??selections within hisEcks & Bacon column.
LAS VEGAS — Maybe not Waiting Dont think of hitting on 80 percent??a week, four. OOPS! I will try and do.
Born and raised in the Bronx and pinstripes bleed. Because my heart triumphs over my mind the Yankees-Twins is really a no-fly zone. My head says, why are the Astros SO economical against the Rays??? Get that Tampa is also the MLB story that is feel-good, and the Cinderella team, but man, were talking Justin Verlander! We are speaking DOMINATION! Were talking Cy Young! Were speaking 21-6 with 300 Ks and a 2.58 ERA! And of course, do not forget his inspiration… Kate Upton. Tyler Glasnow is trotted out by the Rays that? OK, hes 6-1 with a lanky 1.78 ERA, however were still discussing VERLANDER!
And we would not mind if the Cardinals were tickled by you using Jack Flaherty, that was well, Verlander-like down the stretch. He has won seven of his last nine, and let just 11 earned runs within a 106-inning stretch for a gorgeous 0.93 ERA. And yeah, in these 106 innings, he posted 130 occasions to the letter K! Since St. Loo won last night, well keep it real light.
On the college football board you get a delicious matchup between Rutgers, Maryland and two teams, that were outscored by a combined total of 111-0. To ZERO, ONE HUNDRED ELEVEN for actual! And the Terps are a 13-point favorite. What? OK, I am purchasing. Why? This season Since the Knights have been outscored 82-0 in Big Ten play!
And in the top-10 SEC battle, were gonna roll up with Auburn over Florida. You have 5-0 vs??5-0. And the Tigers will be the favorite. Why? Theyre gonna win.
On to Sunday, and we are all over the Cowboys -3.5 points across the Packers. After hitting four consecutive stakes that are best, this will be the week which Im not on or against Baltimore. Why? Since the Ravens have looked awful the past two matches, and I am not entirely sold on Pittsburghs new QB, Mason Rudolph. Speaking of awful, Dallas wasnt ugly although awful at a 12-10 loss that is lackluster at New Orleans last week. Why theBoys? A whole lot of reasons, but is the game that is running. Ezekiel Elliott is now done with his preseason after four games, and must be ready to rumble, BIG TIME.
Why? Since Green Bay has been horrendous against the run, allowing 176 yards into the Eagles 149 into Denver in Week 3 and 198 to Minny in Week 2. The Cheeseheads do not do well on the street, winning just two of the 11. Dallas has been exceptional in the home, on a 7-0 run and posting 10 wins in the previous 11. And thats the reason why this is my BEST BET
Taking a Look at the Titans -3 points over the Bills. This match made it to the atmosphere of the ideal wager territory. But without a handle about the Josh Allen injury (concussion), we cannot make it a BESTIE. However, just like we did last week, even when we requested you to pump Buffalo around greatest bet standing if that a Hightower was out (he was, and it was a winner), please do the exact same here. Matt Barkley gets the start at QB for the Buffs and if Allen does not play M, Marcus Titans and Mariota become a BEST BET BAABBEEE!!!
