    Posted by Alan Lemmings on 5/23/2015 3:15:06 PM
    This game could likely be a pitcher’s duel with two starters coming into this one with sub 3 ERAs. The Cards Lackey comes in with a 1.80 ERA and 0.95 WHIP in his last three starts to face Edison Volquez who also has a respectable 2.74 ERA on the season. +…

    Posted by Alan Lemmings on 4/30/2015 9:56:45 AM
    Both pitchers come into this game looking to rebound from rough previous starts. DeGrom is 2-2 on the year with a respectable 2.96 ERA, but is looking to bounce back from a tough outing in which he yielded six runs and eight hits over five innings to the Yankees. +…

    Posted by Tom Jeffries on 4/21/2015 4:43:25 PM

    The best team in the Western Conference should be viewed as the title favorite, because the West is so much better than the East once again. The East does have a terrific Atlanta team, and it also has stars such as Derrick Rose (Chicago Bulls) and LeBron James (Cleveland Cavaliers), but the West has more complete teams, and it has a larger number of really good teams. +…

    Posted by Stan Jenkins on 12/22/2014 4:14:39 PM
    These teams are trying to set themselves up for a playoff run, the key difference being that the Broncos are already in the playoffs as division champions, while the Bengals have a lot of work to do to make the playoffs. Denver clinched the AFC West on Sunday with a victory over the San Diego Chargers. Peyton Manning absorbed a thigh injury while trying to make a block, and he played the game with flu-like symptoms as well. +…

    These teams are both division contenders, and they both have very capable quarterbacks (though different in terms of their ceilings), and the similarities pretty much end there.

    Posted by Stan Jenkins on 11/1/2014 9:38:20 AM
    The biggest game of the week is the one in the South, where Auburn and Ole Miss play a desperate game now that Ole Miss has lost to LSU. Auburn and Ole Miss both have one loss, which means that the loser here will fall two games behind Mississippi State in the SEC West. +…
  • NFL Betting: Saints vs. Panthers Thursday Night Preview:

    Posted by Stan Jenkins on 10/30/2014 11:37:30 AM
    The New Orleans Saints had been playing terrible football over the first month and a half of the season. Let’s just face it – the Saints never did inspire any confidence in any game they played, even two wins. +…
  • NFL Betting: Redskins vs. Cowboys Monday Night Football Preview:

    Posted by Stan Jenkins on 10/27/2014 12:02:45 PM
    These are not your same old 8-8 Dallas Cowboys, the team that would get your hopes up one week and crush them the next. This is not the Dallas team that made its critics happy and its detractors easily amused. This is a focused, balanced, complete team with very few weaknesses. +…

    Posted by Stan Jenkins on 10/25/2014 11:30:56 AM
    The biggest game of the week could very well be this one. The schedule in week nine is spread out, with no obvious blockbuster kind of game. There are a lot of games between one ranked team and one unranked team, and this is one of them. +…
  • NFL Betting: Chargers vs. Broncos Thursday Night Preview:

    Posted by Stan Jenkins on 10/23/2014 10:19:46 AM
    The San Diego Chargers were on a roll. They were 5-1 to start the season. Their only loss had been to the Arizona Cardinals, another team that had only one loss and is still with only one loss after beating the Oakland Raiders on Oct. 19. San Diego had managed to win five straight games. +…
  • NFL Betting: Monday Night Football Preview:

    Posted by Stan Jenkins on 10/20/2014 11:02:36 AM
    These teams are trying to pick up the pieces after falling another notch this past week. The Texans were crushed in the first quarter of their game against the Indianapolis Colts, but they managed to regroup and were within one possession late in the game with a chance to win. However, they couldn’t complete their final drive and suffered a narrow loss to the Colts on their home field. +…

    Posted by Stan Jenkins on 10/17/2014 10:55:39 AM
    The biggest game of the week comes from Tallahassee, Fla., where Notre Dame and Florida State will both bring unbeaten records onto the field. Notre Dame and Florida State both have very athletic, mobile quarterbacks in Everett Golson for the Irish and Jameis Winston for the Seminoles. +…

    Posted by Stan Jenkins on 10/16/2014 2:18:04 PM
    The New York Jets, after getting absolutely crushed by the San Diego Chargers a week earlier, could have folded everything up against the defending AFC champion Denver Broncos this past Sunday in East Rutherford, N.J. +…
  • College Football Betting: The Best Two Televised Games Of The Week:

    Posted by Stan Jenkins on 10/11/2014 10:48:34 AM
    The biggest game of the week comes from the Southeastern Conference and its West Division. Auburn, the defending division and conference champion from the SEC West, takes its unbeaten record and strong reputation on the road to Starkville, Miss., where Mississippi State will try to pull off an even bigger breakthrough win than what it has achieved in each of the past two weeks with its conquests of LSU and Texas A&M. +…
  • MLB Betting: Royals vs. Orioles Series Preview:

    Posted by Stan Jenkins on 10/9/2014 9:40:08 PM
    These teams are riding so much momentum and confidence right now. They’re playing so freely and are getting so much out of their defense and their bullpens. The Kansas City Royals and Baltimore Orioles have some very strong similarities in the way they play. +…
  • NFL Betting: Colts vs. Texans Thursday Night Preview:

    Posted by Stan Jenkins on 10/8/2014 9:34:28 PM
    >This game comes down to which quarterback protects the ball better. It’s an issue for Luck, but it’s more of a problem for Fitzpatrick, a man who has already tried to be a starter in the NFL and plainly failed with the Buffalo Bills. +…

    Posted by Stan Jenkins on 10/4/2014 12:15:52 PM
    The Texas A&M Aggies and Mississippi State Bulldogs were not supposed to compete for the SEC West championship this season. Texas A&M lacked quarterback Johnny Manziel, who is now in the pros with the Cleveland Browns. +…
  • NFL Betting: Vikings vs. Packers Thursday Night Preview:

    Posted by Stan Jenkins on 10/1/2014 10:20:47 AM
    The Minnesota Vikings have more limited options at quarterback these days. That’s a true statement. Matt Cassel was knocked out with an injury in week three of the season against the New Orleans Saints. +…

  • NFL Betting: Giants vs. Redskins Thursday Night Preview:

    Posted by Stan Jenkins on 9/25/2014 1:44:53 PM
    The New York Giants and Washington Redskins are both 1-2, but they’re in the same position only because they took different routes to get there. New York started off 0-2 this season but then bounced back this past Sunday with a 30-17 win over the previously unbeaten Houston Texans. +…
  • College Football Betting: The Best Two Televised Games Of The Week:

    Posted by Stan Jenkins on 9/20/2014 2:28:09 PM
    The Auburn Tigers get their first true test of the season, but how big a test will it turn out to be? A lot of people are discounting Kansas State after a very shaky performance on Sept. 6 against the Iowa State Cyclones. Kansas State was supposed to roll past Iowa State. +…
  • MLB Betting: Tigers vs. Royals Series Preview:

    Posted by Stan Jenkins on 9/19/2014 1:53:52 PM
    These teams have been going back and forth in taking the lead in the American League Central. Detroit started 27-12, but then went 9-20, and then went 12-2. The Royals went 24-28 in their first 52 games, then won 15 out of 19, and then lost seven of nine. +…
  • NFL Betting: Buccaneers vs. Falcons Thursday Night Preview:

    Posted by Stan Jenkins on 9/18/2014 1:43:12 PM
    The Falcons were torn apart by the Cincinnati Bengals in week two, even though Cincinnati lost receiver A.J. Green due to injury during that game. Cincinnati’s defense was too much for Atlanta’s offense. +…

    Posted by Stan Jenkins on 9/13/2014 1:58:00 PM

  • MLB Betting: Athletics vs. Mariners Series Preview:

    Posted by Stan Jenkins on 9/12/2014 1:52:53 PM
    These teams have been at each other all year, but as the second full weekend of September arrives, the Seattle Mariners have all the momentum, and the Oakland Athletics are hanging on for dear life. +…
  • NFL Betting: Steelers vs. Ravens Thursday Night Preview:

    Posted by Stan Jenkins on 9/11/2014 1:41:42 PM
    These teams figure to play a close game on Thursday, partly because they hate each other and are not likely to give ground, but also because they are so closely matched in general and have a history of playing close games. This is an AFC North grudge match, one in which the level of hitting should be extremely fierce. +…

    Posted by Stan Jenkins on 9/6/2014 1:51:47 PM

  • MLB Betting: Royals vs. Yankees Series Preview:

    Posted by Stan Jenkins on 9/5/2014 1:46:52 PM
    These two teams are fighting battles on different fronts. The Yankees are fighting one realistic battle, because they know the Baltimore Orioles are in control of the American League East. +…
  • NFL Betting: Packers vs. Seahawks Thursday Night Preview:

    Posted by Stan Jenkins on 9/4/2014 1:44:09 PM
    These two teams represent clear contrasts in styles. The Packers are all about their offense, and their defense just needs to be good enough. Green Bay missed Aaron Rodgers for much of last season. +…
  • College Football Betting: Heisman Trophy Race Preview:

    Posted by Stan Jenkins on 8/30/2014 12:16:10 PM
    The first and most obvious thing to note about this year’s Heisman race is that Jameis Winston, the 2013 Heisman winner and the quarterback of the defending national champion Florida State Seminoles, could win the award and become only the second man in history to take the trophy in consecutive seasons, joining Archie Griffin of Ohio State in 1974 and 1975. +…

  • MLB Betting: Yankees vs. Blue Jays Series Preview:

    Posted by Stan Jenkins on 8/29/2014 9:44:47 AM
    These are extremely crucial games for both teams, but especially for Toronto. The Yankees have moved a few games in front of the Blue Jays for second place in the American League East behind the Baltimore Orioles. +…
  • MLB Betting: Nationals vs. Mariners Series Preview:

    Posted by Stan Jenkins on 8/29/2014 9:40:04 AM
    These teams are both loaded with high-quality pitching. Seattle’s staff ERA, the bullpen and the starting rotation, is under three runs. That’s the lowest staff ERA for any American League team in a full season since the beginning of the designated hitter rule in 1973. +…
  • NFL Football Betting: AFC East Preview:

    Posted by Stan Jenkins on 8/28/2014 9:44:58 AM
    The New England Patriots are still coached by Bill Belichick. They still have Tom Brady at quarterback. They still have a roster filled with players that can be plugged into many positions and can be asked to perform when other players are injured and the nature of the depth chart shifts. +…
  • NFL Football Betting: AFC West Preview:

    Posted by Stan Jenkins on 8/18/2014 1:03:31 PM
    The AFC West is tough enough as it is. Three teams from the division made the playoffs last season. Two of them won at least one playoff game, and the team that didn’t win a playoff game led, 38-10, in the wild card round against the Indianapolis Colts in Indianapolis, only to suffer a bunch of injuries and lose bodies before the end of the game. +…
  • College Football Betting: Atlantic Coast Conference Preview:

    Posted by Stan Jenkins on 8/18/2014 12:57:42 PM
    The Atlantic Coast Conference will be highly intriguing in the big, broad middle of the league, but at the top, it’s supposed to be Florida State’s world once again. +…

    Posted by Stan Jenkins on 8/14/2014 9:40:07 AM
    The Oregon Ducks might not be the future of the Pac-12, but they are the present in the conference. Stanford is coming off back-to-back Rose Bowl appearances, so the Cardinal are going to have something to say about how far the Ducks fly in the 2014 season. +…
  • College Football Betting: Southeastern Conference Preview:

    Posted by Stan Jenkins on 8/14/2014 9:37:36 AM
    If the Southeastern Conference is going to win another national championship after losing hold of its national title streak this past season, it’s probable that the Alabama Crimson Tide are going to have to be the team to do the work for the SEC. +…
  • College Football Betting: Big Ten Conference Preview:

    Posted by Stan Jenkins on 8/7/2014 12:01:50 PM
    >The Big Ten Conference will be contested by many of the usual suspects this season, but the team that has been a giant in the Big Ten for so much of its history is a team that doesn’t really know what to expect. +…
  • College Football Betting: Big 12 Conference Preview:

    Posted by Stan Jenkins on 8/4/2014 12:21:36 PM
    The Big 12 Conference has one of its signature programs back at the top, expecting to compete for a conference title and maybe enter the national championship race as well. Oklahoma is getting all the preseason publicity and is being seen as a serious contender. +…
  • College Football Betting: Mountain West Conference Preview:

    Posted by Stan Jenkins on 8/4/2014 11:48:13 AM
    The Mountain West’s two-division format led to the installation of a conference championship game for the first time last season. Fresno State, the champion of the West Division, defeated Mountain Division champion Utah State at home to usher in a new era in this part of the country. +…
  • College Football Betting: Mid-American Conference Preview:

    Posted by Stan Jenkins on 8/4/2014 11:45:34 AM
    The Mid-American Conference figures to have some changes and some elements of stasis this season. On one hand, defending champion Bowling Green brings back a number of its skill-position players and will therefore have a great chance of defending its East Division crown, enabling the Falcons to get back to the MAC Championship Game in Detroit. +…

    Posted by Stan Jenkins on 7/27/2014 4:05:45 PM

    Posted by Stan Jenkins on 7/27/2014 4:03:08 PM

    >The rematch of the 1976 World Series, won by the Reds in a four-game sweep, comes to the new version of Yankee Stadium this weekend. These teams are not what they once were, but they’re still very much in the playoff hunt, mostly because there are no great teams in their respective divisions. +…
  • MLB Betting: Dodgers vs. Cardinals Series Preview:

    Posted by Stan Jenkins on 7/17/2014 11:32:20 AM
    This is the game that could become very hard to pick. Let’s say, as a hypothetical, that Adam Wainwright pitches in this game for the Cardinals. You would then want to take him and his under-two ERA against the pitcher the Dodgers have selected for this game. +…
