As we head into the penultimate weekend of MLB's regular season, we look to keep our winnings ways going for the week in #BlairsBestBets. We're at 5-3 1.91u through four days playing predominantly totals. I'm heading right back to Miller Park and dropping a unit on u9 CHC/MIL -105. The Cubs and Brewers are playing a virtual postseason series two weeks shy of the Division Series getting underway in Wisconsin. As such, these games are tight and have a playoff atmosphere.
While the AL East is the closest division race heading into Thursday's MLB slate (three games separate the Red Sox and Yankees), the NL Central has three teams within five games of each other (the Cubs, Brewers and Cardinals are all still in the postseason conversation). I like a pair of games from this division tonight -- but not on sides. We're talking totals! Love u8.5 CHC/MIL +105.
We're 2-2 -0.05u so far this week in #BlairsBestBets. So, essentially, we're breaking even. Or... In any case, let's get back to chopping wood on our MLB plays for Wednesday! I'm fading the Cubs and their seven-game win streak tonight and playing TB +100 against Chicago. Bet ya didn't know which team Cubbies starter Jon Lester has the most career losses against. If you guessed the Rays, you'd be correct.
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Obama AND Romney or Obama + Romney.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used.) For example, search for democrat OR republican to find results that refer to
Democrats and/or Republicans.
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
