Good News Bad News
This from the 2019 PLAYBOOK Football Preview Guide magazine: The Pittsburgh Steelers will play 6 games this NFL season against teams with a new head coach. However, Mike Tomlin is 10-24 ATS when favored versus first-year head coaches, including 6-24 ATS as a favorite of more than 3 points. Ugh.

Grinding Out The Profits
Talk about the epitome of consistency, Texas Ranger hurler Mike Minor is 10-9 with a 2.73 ERA and a 1.16 WHIP in his overall team-starts this campaign. At home is 5-5 with a 2.73 ERA and a 1.21 WHIP, while on the road he is 5-4 with a 2.73 ERA and a 1.11 WHIP. He’s also 9-8 at night, 1-1 during the day, and 4-4 in one-run games. That’s as close a shave as one can find.
