About Last Night

Dream dozen for our YRFI/NRFI run
It may soon reach the point where we consider scrapping our usual comprehensive coverage of sports and concentrate solely on first-inning run markets. The amazing winning streak of our daily YRFI/NRFI best bets reached 12 yesterday as Keith Schmelter went 2-0 with a double NRFI success — the 6th perfect day in a row! We als0 went 2-0 on MLB props, including a second straight YRFI/NRFI winner from Mark Zinno. There were some hot bats across the MLB parks on Tuesday, as the Giants smashed the Diamondbacks 13-0, the A’s beat the Rangers 14-7 in 12 innings, and the Cardinals beat the Dodgers 7-6.

Best Bet of the Day

MLS: Over 3 goals in San Jose Earthquakes vs LA Galaxy
10:05 pm ET, FS1

The LA Galaxy will take on the San Jose Earthquakes tonight in what should be a high-scoring affair. The Galaxy have scored 14 times in their last 5 MLS matches and should keep up that run as they face a San Jose defense that is tied with DC United for the most goals allowed in the league (37). Their attack continues to impress, however. The Earthquakes scored 2 goals in each of their last 2 games and netted twice on the road against LAFC at the end of May. Neither defense has looked very strong this season and the teams should combine for more than 3 goals. Read our full game preview for San Jose Earthquakes vs LA Galaxy.
