For the last full weekend in August, for line moves, we have a full plate of baseball and football action! Take a minute to review all the betting trends, our free picks and predictions (304-225-5 long term, 113-73-3 of late) to see what we are thinking today. See you back here next week.

MLB (973) HOUSTON at (974) L.A.A. ANGELS 10:05 ET ATT-H, FSW

Though not 100 percent healthy, Houston has as many able bodies as they have had in some time and just won a big series at Seattle. The offense has put together three double-digit hit games in their last four and seems to be coming back around. The money is on the Astros, who have been jettisoned from -140 to -165 against Andrew Heaney (7-7, 4.11) and the Angels. There is conjecture Mike Trout could return tonight, which would lower the line, but with the 'Stros 38-13 as a road favorite of -125 or more and 9-0 away after a game where they had 17 or more hits and they have to get the call.

Betting Trend - 92% backing Houston
Doug's VPID Take - Houston wins

NFLX (257) NEW ENGLAND at (258) CAROLINA 7:30 ET (side and total)

Both these clubs come in at 2-0. Bill Belichick surprised everyone by playing Tom Brady for a half last week. It makes little sense to expose Brady again at this point, yet the Patriots are down from +2 to a Pick against Carolina. With all the uncertainty, the total is also down two points. Myself, I like the OVER the best with how both offenses have looked and a small play on the Panthers to cover.

Betting Trend - 68% backing Over, 69% on New England
Doug's VPID Take - Play Over, slight lean Carolina
