Sports Hub Expert Tops the Leaderboard Again

My guys are just absolutely killing it! Once again, it’s a Sports Hub expert that took the top spot on yesterday’s leaderboard. James Anderson, who happens to be our fifth-ranked NBA handicapper, got into the action yesterday with a perfect day. He wasn’t the only one either. Five of the top-6 on the board put in at least two picks and didn’t record a loss.

It was another strong day as the top 31 cappers on the board all won at least $100. Performances like this make it tough on the Monday morning quarterback. There’s just nothing to complain about!

Here’s how yesterday’s board played at the top.

James Anderson Tops the Leaderboard
  • Playing with the sharps: James Anderson has some serious connections, ones with offshore bookies that gives him access to where the sharp money is going. That info paid off yesterday with a perfect 3-0 card. Three different bets – WNBA spread, MLB team total, and an MLB money line bet put $395 in James’ pockets. No Monday morning quarterback needed here!
  • It only takes one: Al McCordie was No. 2 on my leaderboard hitting his only pick of the day. He nailed the Giants’ upset of the Braves to win $205. Al has now hit on 6 of his last 7 picks. Keep him on your radar come hockey season. Al is SportsHub’s No. 14-ranked NHL capper.
  • Connect four: Rounding out the top-6 were four guys that each went 2-0 and won $200. You’ll recognize a few of these names – Brad Mullins, Joe Berra, Diego Garcia, and Scott Wetzel. Wait until these guys get their hands on the NCAAF and NFL seasons. It’s going to be a great season for our handicappers which means a great season for you!
  • Big Ben:  So, if you’ve been a loyal reader (which I thank you for!), you immediately know the name Ben Miller. The guy is hotter than a five-alarm fire. He’s at the top of virtually every leaderboard I have. He’s up nearly $2600 for the last 30 days. Here’s the great thing though. Even a bad day is a good one for Ben. He went 3-2 yesterday and still won $131. He’s now our No. 1-ranked MLB capper and he’s got NCAAF and NFL picks for the upcoming seasons in the system already.

Nats, CFB Among Trending Sports 

It’s that time again when I serve up knowledge you can use. Bettors need to stay on top of what is going on in the sports world. The smallest piece of information could make the difference between a win and a loss at your sportsbook. My goal is to keep you informed so you don’t have to play Monday morning quarterback. I’ll have tons of the best trending sports info during the 2023 football season.

Let’s see what’s trending today.

  • Here come the Nats: The Washington Nationals were – and maybe still are – an afterthought when thinking of the 2023 MLB season. Even now, the Nats are 24 games out of first place in the NL East and well below .500. But, Washington has won 7 of its last 9 games and 12 of its last 17. They have been scoring 6 runs per game over their last 9 and have won their last three straight series. Washington will surely give fans enough to play Monday morning quarterback after their favorite team loses to them.
  • Quest for CFP title to begin: We will be in all our glory this Saturday as Week 0 kicks things off for this college football season. A number of CFB teams have announced their starting quarterbacks – not their Monday morning quarterback – for the season. Two-time defending champion Georgia will go with Carson Beck who will replace Stetson Bennett. Michigan State transfer Payton Thorne earned the starting job at Auburn. Of course, Caleb Williams is the starter at USC and he is the favorite to capture a second straight Heisman Trophy. That hasn’t been done since the 1970s when Ohio State RB Archie Griffin became the only NCAAF player to accomplish the feat.
  • Team USA: Anthony Edwards scored 34 points to lead Team USA to a 99-91 win over Germany in a FIBA World Cup tune up. The Americans went 5-0 in exhibition play in preparation for the World Cup tournament which begins on Aug. 25. Spain is the defending champion, but Team USA enters the tournament as the betting favorite.
  • I feel the need for speed: If you didn’t know, the track and field world championships are being held right now in Budapest. American sprinter Noah Lyles is on the verge of making history. Lyles captured the 100-meter title in a blistering 9.83 seconds. He will have the opportunity to pull off the rare 100-200 double that the legendary Usain Bolt made a habit of. Lyles currently holds the American record in the 200 at 19.31. 

A Schedule Fitting of a Monday Morning Quarterback

While you’re playing Monday morning quarterback, don’t forget that we’ve got one more NFL preseason game on the schedule. The common theme among Week 2 NFL preseason games was low-scoring. It’s typical of the league’s exhibition season. Most teams don’t play their starters much and are content to work on finalizing their rosters for the upcoming season.

NFL Preseason Week 2 – Low Scoring Games

It’ll be a slower day in MLB as a handful of teams will get today off. Others will start their early week series. Soccer, especially the European variety, is alive and well, and there is one more Grand Slam tennis event that will kick off today. There is plenty of betting value to be found even if you are a Monday morning quarterback.

Let’s see what’s on the schedule.

  1. NFL preseason streak on the line: The Baltimore Ravens have won 24 straight preseason games. Not that it matters, but the Ravens under head coach John Harbaugh have been good to bettors. In addition to winning 24 in a row, Harbaugh-led Ravens teams are 38-16-1 ATS. There are half a dozen NFL picks in the system for this game tonight. You can play Monday morning quarterback tomorrow after you win.
  1. Dog days of summer: As mentioned, some teams will have today off in MLB. Today’s schedule features 10 games. The Cubs and Tigers kick things off with a 6:40 p.m. ET start. Miami and San Diego wrap it up out west with a 9:40 p.m. ET first pitch. Visit our MLB cappers in the member’s area to find the best MLB picks for today.
  2. European soccer: With the women’s World Cup over, many of the world’s premier soccer leagues will now get into full swing. The big one, of course, is the English Premier League where Crystal Palace takes on Arsenal today. We’ve got a number of expert soccer handicappers – Geovanny Aryana is up $410 over the past 7 days with his soccer picks – that you can find in the SportsHub member’s area.
  3. Little guys: Don’t forget the Little League World Series from Williamsport, PA. The action is really heating up. There are two games each in both the international bracket and the U.S. bracket. It all culminates with the international champ playing the U.S. bracket winner on Sunday, Aug. 27.
  4. Final Grand Slam tennis event: The Monday morning quarterback will come out for tennis fans over the next three weeks. The last tennis Grand Slam event – the U.S. Open – begins today in New York City. Carlos Alcaraz is the defending champion and the favorite to win this year’s event. Iga Swiatek is the women’s favorite.

There you have it. A decent sports schedule with some variety for an August Monday. It’s the start of a new week and, of course, many of you will play Monday morning quarterback after Week 2 of the NFL preseason. Remember, it won’t be long until we’re doing it for real!

We will have real live college football action this Saturday. Week 0 gets us started. It’s not a full slate of games, but hey, it’s college football and we couldn’t be happier. Sports Hub will have all the best news, updates, analysis, picks, and more to get you through the week. Come back tomorrow for a recap of yesterday’s action and to see what else lies ahead.
