Dinner with some of the most respectable, hard-working and intelligent people in the business was a delight. It was an honor to be included. I learned a lot and expect to keep learning.
FREE 3* today (8/30/2012). As always, the play comes with logical reasoning, expert analysis and the SDQL text of trends that you can query yourself.
Here is a nice trend to watch for in the future. We used it in our play on Tampa Bay over the Blue Jays on 9/2/2012. Tampa Bay was up 8-0 by the time the Jays got their first hit of the game.
Tampa is a perfect 13-0 in franchise history with David Price when they scored first and lost in his last start. The SDQL text is:
starter=David Price and s:SF and s:L
The SF stands for Scored First and the s: prefix points the parameter to the starter’s last start. Note that the Rays have won these games by an average of well over four runs per game and that Price’s only two non-quality starts were games in which he pitched well but was pulled before the seventh with a substantial lead. Tampa won these two non-quality starts 5-2 and 12-2.
Week ONE Prop -- Seattle at Arizona UNDER 7.5 in first quarter -- The Seahawks have not scored a point in the first quarter in NINE YEARS -- the longest streak by far of any team in the league. Seattle is starting a rookie QB on the road and they are playing a divisional opponent in a game that is rated close to pick-em. They should start this one with a cautious, wait-and-see attitude as one mistake could be the difference.
The Cardinals have an improved defense and they should lead with their defense as well. In Whisenhunt’s last four years as head coach, the Cardinals are 0-12 OU in the first game of the season vs each divisional opponent. In their last six games in this spot that have scored a TOTAL of six points in the first quarter. To get over 7.5, these two would need two scores – one of which is a TD. We don’t think the offenses are up to it, so as long as the special teams and defense stay out of the end zone we should be OK here.
First Quarter Forecast: 0-0

butsiehow about your 3* Green Bay Packers,what do you say about that game? They got killed.
This is a good question and I appreciate the opportunity to answer it.
Of course, I did not know the result of Sunday's plays when I posted last season's playoff results.
If you look at my home page at DrEdMeyer.com you can read that my 3* side on Green Bay lost yesterday. It's right there on the front page.
Wow. It's great to see the number of people who stuck with me after my loser on Green Bay on Sunday. I'm glad I was able to come through with the UNDER in the Chargers - Raiders game. My NFL plays are now 9-1 their last ten and 2-1 this season.
Today, I have two baseball plays -- both rated 3* including my 2012 National League Game of the Year. Both are underdogs. My 3* MLB plays are 12-10 at pregame and all 22 were dogs -- many big dogs, as the net profit is plus 16.4 stars (Playing $100 per star would have produced a profit of about $1640).
If you don't pay to get them today, please read the write-ups tomorrow for free on my home page at DrEdMeyer.com.
Also, please check out the NFL SDQL Query of the Day in the NFL forum. Last Thursday I started posting trends that were ACTIVE for the upcoming week of action. They have done very well so far. The first week two trend is already posted.
