A ton of great plays tonight to choose from -- but Iâ€™m going to give you four and one reason why you need to go in these directions. Iâ€™ve got CLE -145 against the Yankees in Game 1 of their ALDS for one reason and one reason only: the pen. As weâ€™ve seen so far in this postseason, relief pitching is critical -- and no teamâ€™s bully was better than Clevelandâ€™s in 2017. The Indians sported an MLB-best 2.89 ERA this season.
Big news on the business side of things yesterday as Sports Action -- along with Sports Insights and FantasyLabs -- became part of The Action Network. Read more about what this means here. We also welcomed a certain veteran sports betting content expert to the fold. Needless to say, a very exciting day! Now, let's get to our #BlairsBestBets for Hump Day. I'm playing LAS +180 against the Lynx in Game 5 of the WNBA Finals. It doesn't get more evenly matched than these two teams.
The reaction on Twitter was swift. Thanks to a botched attempt at a miracle comeback featuring multiple laterals by Washington, the Monday Night Football game went from 23-20 in the final seconds (where WAS +7 and u48.5 were going to pay) to a finals score of 29-20 after Kansas City returned a fumble for a defensive touchdown (paying bettors who had KC -7 and o48.5). Of course, we played KC and the under in our picks in this space, so 1-1 -0.05u was just fine with us. Crazy.
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 Musk AND Zuckerberg or Musk + Zuckerberg.
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, results will contain either cake or cookie by searching cake OR cookie or cake,cookie
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".
