Halloween is almost here which means, next week, it will be more than just another manic Monday. Yes, a Bangles reference. An aside: I’d like to see someone dressed as Susanna Hoffs, just to reminisce.

Anywho, in the spirit of the season, and because there can be so much good given by generous, wealthy neighbors (Hint, kids: Hit up large, expensive-looking houses to receive: Full-size candy bars! Silver dollars! Scholarships! – kidding).

Autumn is the most wonderful time of year and you can become a sports betting legend of the fall with the advice of OddsSeeker.com’s experts. We’ll give you advice on all four major sports (NBA, NFL, MLB, NHL) and more.

But the best part is bonuses (mostly for those signing up for the first time), courtesy of all the great sites out there, from FanDuel Sportsbook and its $1,200 offer to new players to DraftKings Sportsbook (Bet $5, Win $200) to PointsBet Sportsbook (Risk-free bet up to $2,000 for new players) to BetMGM’s awesome $1,000 match on a first deposit.

As of this writing, there are 19 states, and also D.C., that offer online sports gambling, with more to come in 2023, just in time for Super Bowl LVII on Feb. 12., 2023, in Glendale, Ariz.

Remember, you can place all your wagers there, from future bets to current night-of-game selections.

OK, we all know All Hallow’s Eve’s bags of candy can be a mixed bunch of sugary snacks, but I’m only going to give you the three top bets, one each from the NFL, NBA and MLB (World Series).

These are my Reese's Cups, Skittles, and M&M picks, which also happen to be America’s three favorite Halloween handouts.

Let’s spook everyone by going three for three with these tasty stakes with awesome odds provided by DraftKings.

MEMPHIS GRIZZLIES (point spread TBD) at Utah Jazz

Here’s the deal on this one. Hear me now and believe me later Hans and Franz Wagner fans (yes, another ‘80s shoutout, sort of, with a sprinkle of Magic): I’m saying as of today (Thursday, Oct. 28), take the Grizz regardless of what the spread is – unless there are injuries following the game these two teams play on Friday, Oct. 29.

That’s right. It’s a back-to-back battle royale at Vivint Arena. The Grizzlies get to spend the entire Halloween weekend in Salt Lake City and boy won’t that be fun, huh, guys?

There will be a whole lot of shakin' going on – that’s for you, Jerry Lee, one of Memphis’s Sun Studio sons – with Ja Morant on the court. I think the Grizz win both of these games.

CINCINNATI BENGALS -3 (-110) at Cleveland Browns

Are you kidding me? With the color schemes of these two teams, this just screamed for a Halloween night rivalry game. Bravo, NFL scheduling crew.

What’s baffling to me is why Cincy is only favored by three. Yeah, Ja’Marr Chase is injured and out, and that certainly hurts big-time. But Joe Burrow has been on fire the past two weeks (390 yards passing per game with 6 TDs and 0 INTs) and the bet here is he keeps it up against a light-ish Browns’ pass defense.

I expect Cincy receivers Tyler Boyd and Tee Higgins, along with tight end Hayden Hurst and even running back Joe Mixon, to get more looks and catches from Burrow as the Bengals win and cover.

World Series Game 3: Astros (moneyline TBD) at PHILLIES

Look, at this point, everyone should know that I’m gung-ho about what’s going to happen with the Eagles and Phillies this weekend. I’ve written about it here and here.

It’s going to be flat-out bonkers in Philly on Monday night, bank on that. The question is how projected Game 3 starter, lefty Ranger Suárez, will fare against a Houston squad that led the American League with a .783 OPS versus left-handers. Suarez, who closed out Game 5 of the NLCS against the Padres, has allowed just two runs over nine innings this postseason, but he’s not always in control of his pitches – but he is with his emotions.

Suarez, who’s known for his calm demeanor, as well as his slow heartbeat and fastball, will have his disposition put to the test by the Astros’ bats.

But if you think I’m betting against MLB’s lone Ranger (he’s the only person in league history with that first name) on Halloween night (I’m expecting costumes, Phillies fans) you’re crazy, tontos.
