Yankees and Royals deliver historic bad beat – .


There are bad beats, and then there are historical bad beats.
If you bet less in last night’s game between the New York Yankees and the Kansas City Royals, you were on the wrong side of the story.

The Yankees and Royals haven’t scored a goal in the first six innings.

At the time, there was a 99 percent chance that the underside would hit.

This is not the case.

The two teams combined to produce the first game in MLB history in which both teams scored in the 7th, 8th, 9th, 10th and 11th innings, according to the Elias Sports Bureau.

New York won 8-6 in 11 innings.

The over 9.5 hit with a four-point margin to spare.

As Monday night’s MLB slate approached, only three teams in baseball history had scored in the 7th, 8th, 9th, 10th and 11th.

After combining exactly zero out of six runs, the Yankees and Royals have both scored at least one run in each of the last five consecutive innings.

If you bet less, that’s a bad beat.

If you bet on the Royals, those gatherings in the 7th, 8th, 9th and 10th were for naught.

Terrible.

Here is the Café du Matin on Tuesday, August 10, 2021.

Monday night’s MLB slate was light even before the last drink between the Milwaukee Brewers and Chicago Cubs was postponed.

The great story of the weekend has been the domination of favorite bets in baseball.

From Friday to Sunday, the MLB favorites totaled 35-11.

This trend continued on Monday night, when the favorites dropped to 3-1.

The Yankees (-170 in Kansas City), the Chicago White Sox (-210 in Minnesota) and the San Diego Padres (-260 against Miami) have all done business like chalk.

Cleveland was responsible for the only upset – a 9-3 victory over the Cincinnati Reds as a +160 dog.

The good news is we have a busy 17-game schedule for Tuesday, including a double schedule between the Brewers and Cubs and a double schedule between the Toronto Blue Jays and Los Angeles Angels.

I’m interested to see if the favorites can stay hot after posting a 76% success rate over the past four days.

Rourke should start for the Lions

We’re only two nights away from the start of CFL week two, with the BC Lions ready to visit the Calgary Stampeders on Thursday night of football.

The Underdogs went 3-1 in a row and 4-0 ATS in Week 1.

One of the biggest stories of Week 1 was the Lions quarterback situation.

Michael Reilly was on the scheduled starters for BC, but when the Lions offense first entered the field it was with Canadian rookie Nathan Rourke at quarterback.

Reilly played in the second half and British Columbia rallied 28-0 to cover as a 6.5-point underdog against the Saskatchewan Roughriders, but anyone who took the Lions silver line thought that Reilly was ready to go and was not happy.

The good news is that we have a bit more clarity on where the BC quarterback is going in Week 2.

As reported by Farhan Lalji, the Lions are preparing to pitch Rourke against the Stampeders, but have not ruled out the possibility of Reilly playing in this game.

Reilly has been listed as “limited” in practice as he continues to face an elbow injury on his throwing arm.

From how he looked in Week 1, it would make sense for BC to play it safe with Reilly for a short week.

Despite an absolutely disastrous start against the Riders, the Lions still managed to rally in the second period and cover.

Meanwhile, Calgary has just suffered a disappointing Week 1 loss to Toronto as a 6.5-point favorite.

One of those teams will drop to 0-2 on Thursday night.

The majority of sportsbooks have been reluctant to publish the first lines of the CFL.

Considering the situation with the BC quarterback, I don’t see why they would have any motivation to get Thursday night’s game numbers posted ahead of time.

Wyndham Championship preparations

Hideki Matsuyama, Louis Oosthuizen and Webb Simpson will headline this week’s Wyndham Championship.

While the majority of the big names have chosen to take a week off to prepare for the playoffs, this could open the door for punters to take advantage.
