NFL Week 3 Betting Outlook

NFL Week 3 Betting Outlook

After the second Sunday of the NFL season there have been zero Coronavirus cases amongst players or coaches, however the injury bug has hit several teams in a big way. Nick Bosa (Knee), Saquon Barkley (Knee/Leg), Solomon Thomas (knee), Drew Lock (right shoulder), Parris Campbell (knee) were the most notable names that didn’t finish their games.

2020 NFL Week 2 Betting Outlook

Tennessee Titans -2 at Minnesota Vikings

Both teams want to lean on their rushing games. Tennessee, for sure, will put their faith in Derrick Henry. On defense, the Titans will hope that Jadeveon Clowney gets to Minnesota quarterback Kirk Cousins. These two squads play similar styles, which should make for a desperately close game. 

L.A. Rams at Buffalo Bills -2½

The Rams and Bills are almost mirror copies of each other. The one difference? The Rams’ offense line isn’t as good as Buffalo’s. The Bills’ defense isn’t as good as the Rams’. This should be one of those NFL matchups where the winner comes down to which quarterback plays better. Josh Allen, Buffalo’s signal-caller, is a better rusher than Rams QB Jared Goff. Take that into consideration as you handicap this matchup.

Las Vegas Raiders at New England Patriots

The Raiders struggle on defense. The unit allows around 30 points per. That’s good news facing the New England Patriots and Cam Newton. New England’s defense won’t shut down the balanced Raiders, but it should keep Derek Carr and Josh Jacobs at bay just enough for Newton and the Patriots to get the edge on the scoreboard. 

Houston Texans at Pittsburgh Steelers -4½

For the third week in a row, the Houston Texans must face a top quarterback. Big Ben won’t be the reason the Steelers cover in this game, though. Houston’s defense allows a ridiculous  rushing yards per game. Kansas City ran for 166 in Week 1. Benny Snell Jr. is Pittsburgh’s new workhorse back. He could dominate the Texans’ front seven.  

Tampa Bay Buccaneers -6 at Denver Broncos

Will the Broncos’ defense stop Brady and the Bucs? The Buccaneers offense can light up a scoreboard. Denver has a decent enough defense to keep them in the game. Unfortunately, the Broncos offense could have trouble scoring points against a good Buccaneers’ defense. If the game comes down to Denver quarterback Drew Lock making a play, we must side with the GOAT and Tampa Bay, right?  

Dallas Cowboys at Seattle Seahawks

If the Cowboys’ offense clicks, Dallas has a shot to win this straight up. The Cowboys face a defense that sells out to stop the rush. Ezekiel Elliot may average 3 yards or less per carry against Seattle’s defense, and the Cowboys could still win. Make sure to do your homework before dumping on the Boys, though. Seattle quarterback Russell Wilson can make magic on a football field.

Green Bay Packers at New Orleans Saints

The story on Sunday night isn’t Aaron Rodgers versus Drew Brees. It’s Rodgers and the Packers offense versus the Saints’ defense. New Orleans has one of the better defenses in the league. The last time it faced a hall-of-fame quarterback, Tom Brady in Week 1, the Saints were up to the challenge. Janoris Jenkins ran back a Brady interception for 6 and the Saints won by 11.

Kansas City Chiefs at Baltimore Ravens -3½

Last season, Kansas City beat Baltimore 33-28. This season, we should witness a similar close game. Patrick Mahomes and Lamar Jackson are good at everything. KC has a rushing attack while the Baltimore defense is better this season than it was last season. The winner could come down to which team has the football last. 

College Football Week 4 Top Picks

College Football Week 4 Top Picks

The 2020 college football season cranks up into overdrive in Week 4 with the SEC opening its season. Moreover there are three ranked-on-ranked games. No. 8 Auburn will host No. 23 Kentucky, No. 24 Louisville will look to get back on track against No. 21 Pittsburgh and No. 22 Army will visit No. 14 Cincinnati. Now let’s take a closer look at which college football Week 4 games you should add to you betting board.

College Football Week 4 Top Picks

Florida Gators -14½ at Ole Miss Rebels

Although Ole Miss is unranked, this should be a much tougher contest than many expect. Lane Kiffin returns to the SEC as coach of the Rebels while quarterback John Rhys Plumlee led the SEC in rushing yards per game with 113.7. Florida quarterback Kyle Trask completed 67.6% of his passes last season. Whichever QB has the better game could determine the winner.

Kentucky Wildcats at Auburn Tigers -8

Kentucky’s season hinges on the offensive line. Wildcats’ left tackle Landon Young, center Drake Johnson, and right tackle Darian Kennard have All-American talent. All three figure to play on Sundays. Quarterback Bo Nix returns for Auburn, but the Tigers must replace the entire offensive line.  

Louisville Cardinals at Pittsburgh Panthers -3½

Pittsburgh beat Louisville 45-35 in last year’s game. Louisville’s offense averages 35 points per. IN 2019, Pittsburgh’s defense returns eight starters and led the nation in sacks per game, 3.92. The Cardinals must protect quarterback Micale Cunningham to have any shot against the Panthers. 

Mississippi State Bulldogs at LSU Tigers -18

The LSU Tigers defend their National Championship against a team loaded on both sides of the football. Mississippi State hired Mike Leach away from Washington State. The offensive line returns three starters while Leach lured former Stanford signal-caller K.J. Costello. The Tigers are brand new on both sides on almost every positions. So, don’t be surprised if the Bulldogs pull off an upset. 

Army Black Knights at Cincinnati Bearcats -11½

Army averages 388 rushing yards per. The Black Knights could have some success versus the Bearcats, a squad that allowed 143.4 rushing yards per game last season. If Army gets their rushing attack going, Cincinnati could be in trouble.

Alabama Crimson Tide -28 at Missouri Tigers

Bama is loaded this season. Mac Jones and Bryce Young could play quarterback on Saturday. Running back Najee Harris is a legit Heisman Trophy candidate. The offensive line returns 4 starters. Mizzou’s top weapon is running back Larry Rountree III. He carries the ball behind a line that lost 3 starters from 2019.  

Tennessee Volunteers -3 at South Carolina Gamecocks

Tennessee should field one of the top offensive lines in the nation. That alone will make them one of the better teams in the SEC. South Carolina should have one of the better cornerback tandems in the country. Both Jaycee Horn and Israel Mukuamu have NFL level talent. 

Florida State Seminoles at Miami Hurricanes -10

Florida State versus Miami used to be one of the most anticipated college football games of the season. Not anymore. Hurricane quarterback D’Eriq King faces a talented defense. But if the Seminoles can’t score, and they average 13 points per, Miami figures to grab the win. King hrew for 353 yards and 3 TDs in Miami’s 47-34 win over Louisville.

Top MLB Games For The Final Week Of 2020 Regular Season

Top MLB Games For The Final Week Of 2020 Regular Season

The compressed 2020 MLB 60-game season is rapidly coming to a close. The playoffs are set to open with the wild-card round beginning Tuesday, Sept. 29. With the MLB standings heading to the a tight finish, with wild-card positioning, postseason seeding and the rest of the playoff picture at stake here are the top games for the final week of the season.

Top MLB Games For The Final Week Of 2020 Regular Season

Monday, Sep. 21

Chicago White Sox at Cleveland Indians

White Sox pitcher Lucas Giolito dominated the Tribe with a 4-hit, 0 runs, gem the last time he faced them. Cleveland counters with Aaron Civale, who has allowed a total of 3 runs in his last 13 innings thrown versus the White Sox. 

Milwaukee Brewers at Cincinnati Reds

Milwaukee starter Brandon Woodruff struck out 8 in a 3-2 Brewers’ win the last time he battled Cincinnati. Reds’ lead-off hitter Joey Votto went 0-4 versus Woodruff in the last matchup. 

Tuesday, Sep. 22

New York Yankees vs Toronto Blue Jays

The Yankees are 3-1 SU in Masahiro Tanaka’s last 4 starts. Toronto starter Chase Anderson is 0-2 with a 7.45 ERA, making the Jays tough to back on Tuesday.

Detroit Tigers at Minnesota Twins

The Tigers have not responded when Tarik Skubal has taken the mound. They’re 0-3 in Skubal’s last 3 starts. Twins starter Jake Odorizzi hasn’t lasted more than 4 innings in any game since August 8. 

Wednesday, Sep. 23

Chicago Cubs at Pittsburgh Pirates

The last time Kyle Hendricks faced the Pirates, he dominated. Hendricks threw 6 innings and yielded a single run in an 8-2 Cubs’ victory. The Pirates send Trevor Williams and his 1-7 record and 6.35 ERA to the hill.

Oakland A’s at L.A. Dodgers

A’s pitcher Sean Manaea steps to the mound versus the Dodgers. Manaea has a 4-3 record and a 4.50 ERA. He’s yielded 3 runs or less in his last 6 starts. The Dodgers counter with Julio Urias. Although Urias is 3-0, the Dodgers are 2-3 SU in his last 5 starts, meaning the bullpen has let LAD down in a few games that Julio has started. 

Thursday, Sep. 24

Colorado Rockies at San Francisco Giants

Chi-Chi Gonzalez is a converted reliever. He won’t throw more than 1 or 2 innings on Thursday. The Giants have 8 hits and 5 runs in the 5 innings where they faced Chi-Chi. That gives the G-Men the edge. 

Baltimore Orioles at Boston Red Sox

Although Baltimore starter Alex Cobb is 1-4 this season, he did hold Boston to 2 runs off 6 hits in a 5-4 extra inning Orioles’ win on Aug. 22. Boston’s top hitter, Alex Verdugo, went 2-for-5 in that game, though, and Cobb has allowed 9 earned runs in his last 8 innings pitched.

Friday, Sep. 25

New York Mets at Washington Nationals

Mets versus Nationals on Friday should be an interesting game. Rick Porcello starts for the Mets. Max Scherzer gets the call for the Nats. Porcello is 1-5 with a 6.06 ERA. Scherzer is 4-3 with a 4.04 ERA. Neither has thrown to their ability this season, but the Nationals are an overall mess while Porcello is just a mess by himself. 

Miami Marlins at New York Yankees

Who would have thought that on Sep. 18, the New York Yankees would be 3 games out in the AL East? The Yankees must win every game in the final week to ensure they make the postseason. They start Deivi Garcia and his 3.28 ERA on Friday. Miami starter Sandy Alcantara is 2-2 with a 3.45 ERA, though. The Yankees aren’t a lock to beat the Marlins on Sep. 25.  

Saturday, Sep. 26

Chicago Cubs at Chicago White Sox

Jon Lester hasn’t dominated for the Chicago Cubs this season. He faces a strong Chicago White Sox squad, one that scored 8 runs against him on August 21. Jose Abreu hit 2 home runs off Lester in that game. The White Sox are in the playoffs. Still, they want to win the division. So, expect Abreu and his mates to be sharp on Saturday.  

L.A. Angels at L.A. Dodgers

The Dodgers have notched their spot in the postseason. The last time the Dodgers faced Julio Teheran, they dominated him with 4 earned runs off 6 hits. Corey Seager hit a 3-run homer in that game. 

Sunday, Sep. 27

Cincinnati Reds at Minnesota Twins

Listed starter Michael Lorenzen has a 4.56 ERA and a 1.48 WHIP. The Twins hope to beat the Reds with Jose Berrios. Minnesota’s ace has brought his ERA down to 4.15.

Philadelphia Phillies at Tampa Bay Rays

Phillies starter Aaron Nola has a great 2.92 ERA. He hopes to stop the Rays on Sunday. If the Rays have the NL East sewn up by Sep. 27, expect them to stick with Josh Fleming, a converted reliever with a 3.47 ERA, for at least 5 innings.

NFL Week 2 Early Betting Outlook

NFL Week 2 Early Betting Outlook

NFL Week 2 odds are out after an amazing first Sunday of football action. Here’s a quick look at the games that are worth betting on early!

NFL Week 2 Early Betting Outlook

Detroit Lions at Green Bay Packers

The Lions were on the wrong end of a narrow 27-23 road loss at Chicago in their opener, despite getting 93 rushing yard from ageless future Hall of Fame running back Adrian Peterson. The Packers jumped all over the Vikings in their opener as Aaron Rodgers passed for 364 yards and four touchdowns. Green Bay will look to make it three straight over their NFC North division rivals after sweeping Detroit in 2019. The Lions are a perfect 6-0 ATS in the last six meetings. 

Minnesota Vikings at Indianapolis Colts

Minnesota’s defense never showed up in their humbling 43-34 season-opening loss against Green Bay. Indianapolis got 363 passing from veteran Philip Rivers in their opener, but the veteran gunslinger tossed a pair of costly interceptions in their stunning 27-20 season-opening loss against Jacksonville. The Vikings are 1-4 ATS in the last 5 meetings.

Carolina Panthers at Tampa Bay Buccaneers

The Panthers allowed Josh Jacobs to rush for three scores in their narrow, 34-30 season-opening loss at home against Las Vegas. Tom Brady and the new-look Buccaneers got humbled in their 34-23 season-opening loss at New Orleans as Brady tossed two costly interceptions. The Bucs will look to avoid falling into an 0-2 hole, but the road team won both times a year ago in this matchup of NFC South division rivals. The road team has gone 9-3 ATS in the last 12 meetings. 

Baltimore Ravens at Houston Texans

Baltimore throttled Cleveland 38-6 in their opener as reigning league MVP Lamar Jackson passed for 275 yards and three scores while adding 45 rushing yards. Houston got beat from start to finish in their 34-20 season-opening loss against the Super Bowl champion Chiefs on Thursday. The Ravens have won two straight in this rivalry, including an emphatic 41-7 home win last season. Baltimore has gone a bankroll-boosting 9-2 ATS in their last 11 games while Houston has gone 3-7 ATS in their last 10 home games.

New England Patriots at Seattle Seahawks

The Patriots shut down Miami’s offense and got a pair of touchdown runs from new starting quarterback Cam Newton in their convincing 21-11 season-opening win over Miami. Seattle looked even better in smacking Atlanta around en route to a commanding 38-25 season-opening road win over Atlanta as Russell Wilson passed for 322 yards and four touchdowns. The Patriots are 1-5-1 ATS in their last 7 games while Seattle has gone 3-1-1 ATS in their last 5 games as a favorite.

College Football Week 3 Must Watch Games

College Football Week 3 Must Watch Games

The first “full” Saturday of college football was one for the books. Week 3 gets only bigger with 11 ranked teams in action, two of which go head-to-head as No. 18 Louisville and No. 17 Miami square off in a contest that opens the road for the winner into contending status in the ACC.

College Football Week 3 Must Watch Games

No. 11 Oklahoma State vs. Tulsa:

Tulsa has some decent players, but Oklahoma State is loaded. The Cowboys boast one of the top offenses in college football. Led by legit Heisman Trophy candidate running back Chuba Hubbard, Oklahoma State should score at will. This will get ugly in a hurry. 

Houston at Baylor

The Cougars were scheduled to take on the Memphis Tigers on Friday, Sep. 18. They canceled that game because Memphis has a coronavirus issue. No problem. Baylor is ready to welcome Houston to Waco for their opener. The Bears have turned into a solid Power 5 Conference squad. There’s an emphasis on defense at Baylor. The Bears allowed just 19.3 points per last season. That should work in their favor on Saturday. 

Boston College at Duke

Duke hung with Notre Dame for a long time on Sep. 12. Eventually, the better team got the victory. Make no mistake, though, the Duke Blue Devils are a decent football team. Boston College’s usually stout defense fell off a cliff last season. The Eagles allow 31.7 points per. That’s not good heading into a game versus a team with a solid offense.  

Navy at Tulane

In Week 2, Tulane barely escaped South Alabama in a 27-24 win. Brigham Young blasted Navy 55-3 in Week 1, though. We must assume Navy plays better on Saturday. The Midshipmen beat the Green Wave 41-38 last season. Navy should turn it around. They’re much better than the BYU pasting implies.  

South Florida at No. 7 Notre Dame

The Bulls hired Clemson’s wide receivers and co-offensive coordinator Jeff Scott. South Florida’s offensive line returns three starters while the defense will be okay. Notre Dame was overvalued in Week 2. They figure to be overvalued in Week 3. South Florida looks like the play while Brian Kelly’s defense takes time to gel.  

No. 14 UCF at Georgia Tech

If the Big Ten and Pac 12 don’t decide to play football in October, this could be the season where the Central Florida Knights notch a spot in the College Football Playoff. Central Florida is strong across the board. They bring back three players along the offensive line, four of five starters in the secondary, and a proven defensive line. Georgia Tech’s 16-13 win over Florida State impressed, but it didn’t impress enough to consider backing them against the Knights. 

No. 17 Miami at No. 18 Louisville

After a strange first half, the Hurricanes broke the game open in a 31-14 win over UAB in Week 2. The Cardinals are a decent team on both sides of the football. Louisville beat Western Kentucky 35-21 in their first game. The Canes beat the Cards 52-27 last season. Louisville can turn the tables on Sep. 18.  

Wake Forest at NC State

Yes, Clemson dominated Wake Forest 37-13 in the Demon Deacons’ first game of the season. But Wake Forest entered that game a -33 ½ underdog. Wake dominated NC State 44-10 last season. There’s no reason to believe the Deacons don’t perform another beat down and cover on Saturday. 

Top MLB Games Sept 14-20

Top MLB Games Sept 14-20

Top MLB Games Sept 14-20

Monday, September 14

Minnesota at Chicago White Sox at 8:10 PM ET

The Twins and White Six have both gone a red-hot 8-2 over their last 10 games. Minnesota has won four straight as they get set to hand the ball to veteran right-hander Jose Berrios (4-3, 4.40 ERA) who comes into Monday’s matchup having allowed three earned runs in 5.0 innings of a 7-3 win over St. Louis on Tuesday. Chicago right-hander Dylan Cease (5-2, 3.33 ERA) limited Pittsburgh to two earned runs on five hits in 5.0 innings of a 5-4 loss on Tuesday. 

Tuesday, September 15

St. Louis at Milwaukee at 7:40 PM ET

St. Louis has gone 5-5 over their last 10 and sits in second place in the NL Central, four games behind Chicago. Young right-hander Jack Flaherty (3-1, 3.08 ERA) limited Detroit to two runs on four hits in 5.0 innings of a 12-2 win on Thursday. Milwaukee has gone 4-6 over their last 10, though the Brewers have dropped two straight and have yet to announce their starter for this matchup. 

Wednesday, September 16

NY Mets at Philadelphia at 7:00 PM ET

The Mets have split their last 10 games evenly but fell to Toronto 7-3 on Sunday. Veteran right-hander Rick Porcello (1-4, 6.07 ERA) got smacked around to the tune of five earned runs on 10 hits in 4.0 innings of a 7-6 win over Baltimore on Wednesday. 

Philadelphia has gone 4-6 over their last 10 and dropped both ends of a double header against Miami on Sunday. Right-hander Aaron Nola (5-3, 2.40 ERA) has been phenomenal in making two shutout appearances over his last three starts while tossing 7.0 scoreless innings against Miami in an 11-0 win on Friday. 

Thursday, September 17

Minnesota at Chicago White Sox at 2:10 PM ET

Minnesota right-hander Kenta Maeda (5-1, 2.43 ERA) has been outstanding in not allowing more than one run in three of his last five starts. The veteran hurler shut out Cleveland by limiting the Indians to four hits in 7.0 innings of a 3-1 win on Friday. Chicago has yet to name a starter for this matchup. Minnesota is 9-13 on the road this season while the ChiSox have gone 14-9 at home. 

Friday, September 18

San Diego at Seattle at 9:40 PM ET

San Diego has gone a red-hot 8-2 over their last 10 games and a stellar 17-6 at home this season. Veteran right-hander Garrett Richards (2-2, 4.27 ERA) allowed three runs on seven hits in 7.0 innings of a 5-3 win over Oakland on Sunday.

Seattle has won two straight and seven of their last 10. Young left-hander Justus Sheffield (3-3, 4.06 ERA) limited Arizona to two runs on five hits in 7.0 innings of a 7-3 win on Saturday. 

Saturday, September 19

Texas at LA Angels at 9:10 PM ET

The Rangers have lost six of 10, but they’ve won two straight heading into the new week. Veteran right-hander Lance Lynn (6-2, 2.40 ERA) was outstanding in limiting the Halos to one earned run on four hits in 7.0 innings of a 7-1 win on Tuesday. The Angels have won two straight and seven of their last 10 overall. Southpaw starter Andrew Heaney (4-3, 4.02 ERA) gave up five runs on five hits in 5.0 innings of a 7-1 loss against the rangers on Tuesday.
