Attendance at Saturday's game: 59,659.

Attendance at Sunday's game: 59,059.

Good job by Major League Baseball placing the Yanks and Red Sox in Year 1 and the Cubs and Cards in Year 2 (June 13-14, 2020).

The London Series is a two-year arrangement but could be extended beyond next season.

Can the Dodgers-Giants rivalry be far behind?

How many attended this year's games?

Also, how many Cardinals fans will travel to London to watch London Series 20?

I'll guess 10,000-15,000 Cards fans and 20,000-30,000 Cubs fans.

Estimates place 40,000 Americans in the stands this weekend at London Stadium.

Jay Rood now working for bet.works risk management for The Score sports book. It will be in many states.

should be open in NJ before football

Yahoo reports that MLB lost $10m to put this two game series on in London. They consider it an investment.

I could see this becoming an event that happens multiple times throughout the season. I just hope they look at the soccer schedule first to avoid empty stadiums.

I will say I did enjoy 7am baseball. I could get used to that.

The USA-England women's soccer match starts Tuesday at 2:00 p.m. ET.

Paris is six hours ahead of New York City this time of year.

The local start time will be 8:00 p.m. under the lights in Paris.

Should be quite the spectacle.

For those who follow trends, Chris Sale has been a road favorite of -200 or higher 19 times in his career, his team's record in those games is 17-2

The Diamondbacks were leading the Dodgers 4-3 in the bottom of the ninth with two outs and an 0-2 count on the hitter, the D-Backs pitchers then proceeded to walk five consecutive batters to lose the game 5-4

Yikes!

Holland walked in the game-tying run and McFarland walked in the game-winning run.

Tough way to lose if you had the D-backs +200 or thereabouts.

Closers in MLB are the equivalent of placekickers in the NFL.

You're expected to do your job and when you don't, everyone is disappointed in you.

I don’t see how you can schedule off days on the 4th of July. Even worse, the Cubs play the white Sox this weekend for 2 games -they are off on Friday.

Newcomers are the only sports bettors who should not trust their instincts.

Why?

They have no instincts and if they do, the instincts are poor.
 
I played the SD/Mets game Under 4 FF, after a scoreless top of the first, the Mets scored 4 in the bottom of the inning, I marked my bet a loser, it's still 4-0 top 6. a push that feels like a win
 
I’m going with a smaller play on WASH over 8.5 this afternoon. Always risky betting over against Scherzer but fading SP’s making their first start coming off DL has always been a favorite play of mine. I’m surprised Max has been as durable as he has with his violent delivery. He also defies logic by having excellent command with the extreme head whack he has
 
Just spent some time in Atlantic City and PA casinos on business. Seems like sports betting goes like this

Black guys - bet on the kiosk
Old white guys - bet at the window
Younger white guys - betting on the app
Asian guys - where in the fuck are they? Do they ever leave the Bac table?

Normally I agree with you regarding fading a guy coming off the IL, but Mad Max is a different breed, the guy is a throwback, wouldn't surprise me to see him throw a three hitter and go the distance. GL with your play

true but I still took +295 at hardrock in NJ. Hoping for a 1-0 final.

They love their baccarat. Gotta give Kelly Sun credit, however.

hard rock in NJ had +295 … I learned of off the DL in the 90's it works, but not as good as it use to be
