    That's awesome. Covered the run line too.

    It's going to have all the excitement and enthusiasm as the Vegas Summer League.

    Was watching it with my son and, seven minutes hit, he goes, "Dad, hit the under 3.5 on this". He went on to explain the pace and the formations. Good son.

    We're on Doosan tonight. Over 11.

    Doosan has been in double-digit totals in 15 of its 18 games, over 11 in of those 15. But only over 11 in four of its past eight.

    Game is on ESPN2 tomorrow morning.

    Plus, they're playing SK, the worst team at 3-15. One bit of trouble to overcome for Doosan tonight/tomorrow is that SK doesn't score a lot of runs. However, Doosan doesn't have great pitching.

    One fun part for me. I have a "free bet" that I'm using for this one. $25. So if I see it jump to 11.5 somewhere else, I'll bet it back and made money either way.

    Good for him. I was really figuring a high scoring affair because both teams are talented offensively, they just played on Saturday and Dortmund needed to press for the win.

    On my app for Sunday's golf you got a $20 free live bet for making a $20 pre-match bet. I ended up cashing the free bet on Tom Brady missing a fairway -- not a major moneymaker but for those first several holes just betting "no" on every Brady prop was as sure a thing as I've seen in a while.

    I used my free $20 on Tiger/Manning winning the hole that Phil/Brady eagled.

    Interesting that the NYT led this Vegas story with the El Cortez, of all places. One of my favorite dives back in my degenerate days when I still went to Vegas. I wouldn't want to go back under these conditions, it just doesn't sound like a vacation. But at least they'll still have chips.

    I love the Cortez.
    That’s my first stop when in Nevada. I like the scuzz of the place.

    Hope is alive.

    4-2 Doosan in B8 but SK has a reliever who can’t throw a strike.

    I did chicken out and put $10 on under 11 as I didn’t get my beloved 11.5. Guaranteed winner of $8.50 or $14.
