FRANK’S CUTTING ROOM FLOOR FOR SATURDAY, 4/17:
My “Cutting Room Floor” plays are the situations I considered the closest to being worthy of investment but did not make the “final cut” for my official plays today for subscribers. The last play I cut for early Saturday action is on West Ham minus the goal-line versus Newcastle. West Ham (W16-D7-L8) has won two matches in a row after their 3-2 win against Leicester City on Sunday. The Hammers are currently in fourth place in the English Premier League table so they will be very motivated to earn three points to keep up their fight to qualify for the Champions League next season. They go on the road where they have seven wins with just five losses in 15 matches. Newcastle (W8-D8-L15) comes off a 2-1 victory at Burnley on Sunday — but they lost the expected goals battle by a 1.44 to 2.34 margin. The Magpies defeated the Hammers in the reverse fixture on September 12th by a 2-0 score — so West Ham will have the extra motivation of revenge. Take West Ham minus the goal-line. Best of luck — Frank.

Ricky's 1* play on the over.
Key Angle: It's important to remember that Ricky never makes a bet on any game based on just one angle. In order to make the grade, all his premium picks must meet several important criteria. He doesn't share all his secrets within his analysis, instead he chooses to reveal only the angle that he feels is the most significant. Here in this game the recent history of these two teams is particularly significant.
- The Hammers have scored 51 goals in 31 matches.
- The Magpies have conceded 51 goals in 31 matches.
- The Magpies have scored seven goals in their last three matches versus West Ham.
Verdict: The Hammers have to be happy with Jesse Lingard and his eight goals in nine matches.
The Cavaliers have value as a free play. They have taken down Chicago already this season and have won 3 of their last 4. Look for them to use their speed and get out and run on this Bulls defense.
Good Luck, Razor Ray.

Scott "The Bulldog" Rickenbach EPL Saturday Free Pick Newcastle United Money Line +264 vs West Ham United @ 7:30 AM ET - Newcastle has lost just once in its last six matches in premier league action and they have a great shot at the upset win here. West Ham could overlook them based on their position in the standings and that will prove to be a mistake as Newcastle has been working hard to stay safe from the relegation zone. Newcastle is 3-0 with one draw in the last four meetings between these clubs. West Ham is off a huge win versus Leicester City and also has a huge game with Chelsea on deck. West Ham is currently sandwiched in the table between those two clubs. That sets this match up to be a classic flat spot and that could spell trouble for the traveling Hammers in this one. Great spot to take a shot with a large underdog. Free Pick NEWCASTLE +264
This is a free play on Seattle +1.5.
The Mariners come into this series versus Houston as winners of five of their last six overall, and they look good as an underdog in Game 2.
Chris Flexen will toe the slab for Seattle, and he's off to a good start this season. The right-hander tossed five scoreless innings in a home win over the Giants in his season debut.
The Astros hand the ball to Zack Greinke, who is coming off an ugly loss. Greinke (1-1, 4.08 ERA) allowed six runs on 10 hits over 4 2/3 innings in a home loss to Detroit.
Kyle Seager is batting .462 lifetime versus Greinke.
