Monthly All-access Picks Pass
Larry enters his 29th season in the handicapping business with the opening of the 2012 FB season. Be sure not to miss ANY of his releases by getting all of Larry's plays over a 30-day period for just $500. This includes not only any Game of the Month or Year plays during this period of time but also any of his two "signature" releases, his LEGEND and 29-Club Plays.
Years in handicapping: Larry entered his 30th year in the industry in August of 2013.
Achievements in handicapping: 1985 Castaway’s Pro Football Challenge Champion, then the most prestigious handicapping contest in Las Vegas; 1999 Stardust Invitational quarter-finalist;
A member of the original cast of Proline, the nation’s longest running pre-game handicapping show on the USA-TV network (also hosted Sports Desk on the same network). Although well-known on TV for his expert game analysis and no-nonsense handicapping style, Larry may be best known for his radio work. He hosted his own syndicated call-in radio show, Sports Central. It aired live from Bally's Casino in Las Vegas in the early to mid-90s and at one time was heard in more than 100 markets.
Systems used for handicapping a game: Fundamental and statistical analysis. "I'm not typically a trend and system kind of guy," Ness says. "I look at team strengths and weaknesses and compare them. It’s an all-encompassing thing and over 30 years, you get good at it."
30-Club Play: It represents Larry's 30 years in the business and gets his highest star-rating (10*s). Expect no more than one of these plays per month, per sport during the regular season.
LEGEND Play: Larry's often been referred to as a Las Vegas legend and he's 'borrowed' the title for his other "signature play.". Larry's LEGEND Plays were previously available to only a select group of private clients but they are now available to all, through the internet. Like his 30-Club plays, expect no more than one play per month, per sport (rated 10*s).
PERFECT STORM: Larry just added these plays the last few years and his accompanying expert analysis makes these popular plays self-explanatory (rated 9 or 10*s).
Club-80 Plays: Larry's a fundamental handicapper at heart but he does pay attention to team and situational trends (especially in MLB). When his fundamental handicapping and an 80% or better trend or situation match up, he releases a Club-80 Play. He just started releasing these plays in MLB '09 and they've become a fan favorite (rated 9 or 10*s).
Las Vegas Insider: Throughout his 30 years, Larry has become known as "the ultimate Las Vegas insider." The contacts he's developed over more than two decades (on both sides of the 'counter'), are arguably "unmatched!" He confers daily with 'his friends' and when "all the stars align on the same game," Larry releases an exclusive Las Vegas Insider (rated between 8 and 10*s).
Oddsmaker's Error Plays: Larry uses this term with "great respect" (and not very often), as he counts among his very closest friends, many of Las Vegas' most famous and respected Sport Book directors (past and present). However, when Larry feels "the line is significantly off," he'll release one of these "not to be missed" plays (rated between 8 and 10*s).
Weekly and Weekend Wipeout Winners: Larry added this self-explanatory moniker just a few years ago. They've become immensely popular and why not? Who wouldn't want a game that has "blowout written all over it," supported by Larry's expert analysis (rated between 8 and 10*s).
Late-Breaking Plays: Larry will always go back and take a "second look" at each day's card, after posting all his games. When he finds something he missed the first time around, he'll release a Late-Breaking Play. These plays are more prevalent in sports like baseball and basketball than football (typically rated at 9*s)
Superstar Triple Play: Over the years, many of Larry's regular clients have clamored for more three-game reports. You asked for it and Larry's responded. Back in the late 1980s and into the mid 1990s, 900-numbers became "the rage." While a panel member of Proline (see above), Larry created the Superstar Triple Play. One call got you three Superstar Triple Plays (in a particular sport). For almost a decade, anywhere from 1,500 to 3,500 callers responded each weekend, when Larry offered his famous "Superstar Triple Play" pitch on Proline. Starting in 2009, Larry began going "Back to the Future!" Every Saturday (college) and Sunday (NFL) this football season, get three plays on a single report from Larry (many will be TV games), the originator of the "Superstar Triple Play!"
Release Times: Larry releases the daily sports (baseball and basketball) by 12 noon ET on the day of the game. He begins releasing his football games for the upcoming weekend on Tuesday.
Sports and conferences he excels at handicapping: MLB is Larry's favorite sports to handicap, saying the money is in the statistics. He 'loves' the daily action and the long season. "If I had to pick one sport, I would chose baseball because you’re playing pitchers, streaks, teams that are hot and cold," Ness says. "I also love the NBA and NFL playoffs, the college bowl games plus the college basketball tourneys, which are seasons unto themselves."
Quote: "No one works any harder and my work-product speaks for itself," Ness says. "I have a no-nonsense style and my logic is easy to follow. Anyone buying my plays will know exactly what I was thinking when I made the selection. After 30 years, the Larry Ness brand is instantly recognizable and my analysis ranks with the best in the industry."

(705) Los Angeles Clippers
(706) Charlotte Hornets
(705) Los Angeles Clippers
My free play is on the LA Clippers at 7:05 ET.
The LA Clippers opened the season with SEVEN consecutive ATS losses (4-3 SU), before winning and covering a week ago Saturday at home vs the Suns (120-107). However, the Clipps got thumped by the visiting Bulls last Monday night, falling to 5-4 SU but a money-burning 1-8 ATS. LA hit the road this past Wednesday, for a seven-game road trip and the team enjoyed its first two stops, winning in Orlando by 24 and Miami by 17. LA’s current road trip doesn’t end until after Thanksgiving, with the final stop being a Nov 29 date in Salt Lake City. Of the seven stops along the way, NONE figured to be tougher than the team’s visit to Memphis last night.
I made a 10* play on the Grizzlies, noting that the Clippers were 3-1 SU on the road so far averaging 111.5 PPG but faced a Memphis team which was allowing just 92.5 PPG on the season. These two teams are very familiar adversaries, having met in the 2011-12 and 2012-13 playoffs, plus they don't much like each other. Center Marc Gasol was the 2012-13 Defensive Player of the Year and his presence in the paint tended to make a big difference in this series. The Grizzlies had won the last SIX meetings in which he been healthy (including the playoffs), with Gasol averaging 18.5 points.
Well, I was sure “on the money” with that call, as Memphis won 107-91 with Gasol going for 30 points (added 12 rebounds). Memphis held the Clippers to just 91 points.on 41.6% shooting plus outrebounded them by a 52-32 margin. Blake Griffin turned in his worst scoring effort of the season, netting just 12 points on 5 of 17 shooting. The Clipps have no time to cry over spilled milk though, as it’s off to Charlotte, tonight. The good news is, Griffin averages more points in the second half of back-to-back games than any player, averaging 32.0 points on 62.9 percent shooting on the second half of back-to-backs, helping Los Angeles go 3-0 in those contests. PG Chris Paul is averaging 17.0 points and a league-best 11.3 assists in second halves of back-to-backs. "We really have to come out executing and aggressive and hit first," said Paul, who led the Clippers with 22 points, five assists and four steals in the Memphis loss. "We really have to do a better job of doing it consistently." He is looking for the Clippers to start with greater urgency after they fell behind by 13 at halftime Sunday.
Urgency only begins to describe the predicament Charlotte (4-10) finds itself in. The Hornets are on the verge of their first six-game slide since a 10-game streak Feb 20-Mar 9, 2013. The Hornets rallied from a nine-point halftime deficit Sunday to go ahead but in the end fell 94-93 at Miami. Al Jefferson posted his second straight double-double with 22 points and 12 rebounds and Lance Stephenson and Kemba Walker combined for 33 points. That loss came two nights after blowing a 23-point lead in a loss to Orlando. "The stretch of games we have played has definitely taken their toll on our confidence," Hornets coach Steve Clifford told reporters after his team lost its fifth straight game. "When things are going against us, it's the body language, heads are down, there's doubt and we're a better team than that," Clifford said. "I think you go through stretches like that sometimes in this league, unfortunately for us it's early."
Charlotte remains without starting forward Michael Kidd-Gilchrist, who will miss his seventh straight game with a stress reaction in his right foot. He’s a terrific defensive player and his absence matter. Paul has amassed 56 points and 28 assists in winning his last three games in his home state of North Carolina and the Clippers have taken six of the last seven meetings with Charlotte. Laying the points is the way to go.
