Las Vegas - Cori (Coco) Gauff, the 15 year old American sensation, has stunned every single strawberry and all of the cream at Wimbledon, advancing to the round of 16. Sadly, she is a YUGE underdog to Simona Halep, the #7 player in the world. She has been fabulous in her first three matches, beating Venus Williams (#44), Magdaléna Rybáriková (#139) and Polona Hercog (#60). Now she gets a top 10 player and that's why Halep is -$400 and Coco is +$300. Will let you know tomorrow about which way we're gonna wager.
On the baseball board, looking at the Astros over the Angels. Again, it's gonna be expensive, but with Gerrit Cole on the mound, don't mind laying the wood. Why? Just look at his last five starts. Talking about 32 innings, 6 earned runs and 45 Ks. Yea, FORTY FIVE Ks in just 32 innings. Mama Mia!!! The Angels send out Andrew Heaney, and his last three starts have been brutal. Tell me more Eck. Talking about 15 hits and 11 earned runs in just 15 innings. Not exactly batting practice, but pretty close. Gimme some 'Stros, or, gimme some Stroh's. Actually, gimme BOTH!
