100* Sharp Money Syndicate Play on Yankees +134
The Yankees (103-59) will have no time to lick their wounds after going to 3-1 in the ALCS. Instead, they’ll have to defeat the Astros (107-55) this evening to stay alive.
After Game 4’s 8-3 loss to Houston, the Yankees look like a shell of the team that scored a majors-best 943 runs in the regular season. After committing four errors and going 0-for-7 with runners in scoring position, the Yankees will have to be much better in Game 5 if they’ll stay alive.
The first order of business for New York will be getting to right-hander Justin Verlander (21-6, 2.58 ERA), who starts for the Astros tonight. Verlander pitched Game 2 of the series, allowing only two runs on an Aaron Judge homer in 6 2/3 innings.
As an Astro, Verlander has 28 strikeouts and a 1.19 ERA in three games against the Yankees.
New York will be sending out left-hander James Paxton (15-6, 3.82 ERA) to start. Although he’d given up just one run on four hits, Paxton was removed from Game 2 after just 2 1/3 innings. In 15 home games this year, Paxton went 7-3 with a 3.35 ERA.

100* Sharp Money Syndicate Play on Rangers +180
The Rangers (2-2-0, 4 points) will be looking to gain some ground in the Metropolitan Division this evening as they take on the Capitals (4-2-2, 10 points) in Washington D.C.
After starting the season off with a pair of wins, New York has lost its last two contests to Edmonton and New Jersey. On average, the Rangers are scoring 3.25 goals per game while allowing 3.50 goals per game.
Center Mika Zibanejad has been the brightest player for the Rangers thus far. Zibanejad is currently averaging a goal and assist per game. In total, Zibanejad leads the team with four goals, four assists, and eight points.
Washington has an incredibly productive player of its own in defenseman John Carlson. With three goals and a team-high 11 assists, Carlson leads the Capitals with 14 points through the first eight games of the season.
With a 4-3 win over Toronto two days ago, the Capitals now find themselves in a tie for second in the division with Pittsburgh. On average, Washington is both scoring and allowing 3.25 goals per game.
The Capitals find themselves in the midst of a goalie controversy, as rookie Ilya Samsonov (3-1, .933 save percentage) has outperformed long-time netminder Braden Holtby (1-1-2, .846 save percentage).

50* Powerhouse Play on Penguins -140
While the Stars (1-6-1, 3 points) have gotten off to a dismal start to the season, the Penguins (5-2-0, 10 points) have jumped out to second in the Metropolitan Division. Tonight, these two teams go head to head.
Dallas has been thoroughly lacking offensive firepower through the first eight games of the season. The Stars now find themselves in the midst of a four-game losing streak in which they’ve managed only five goals.
On average, the Stars are scoring just 1.88 goals per game, which ranks them last in the NHL. Dallas is also allowing 3.13 goals per game.
Left winger Roope Hintz has been the best offensive weapon for Dallas thus far. With a team-high four goals and an assist, Hintz leads the team with five points.
The Penguins enter this contest on a four-game winning streak that includes a 3-2 win over Colorado two days ago. With a pair of seven-goal outbursts, Pittsburgh has outscored its last four opponents 19 to 9.
On average, the Penguins are scoring 4.00 goals per game, which is tied for second in the NHL. Defensively, the Penguins are allowing 2.57 goals per game.
While center Jake Quentzel leads Pittsburgh in goals with five, center Sidney Crosby has scored four goals and leads the team with eight assists and 12 points.

100* Sharp Money Syndicate Play on Pittsburgh/Syracuse over51 -110
The stage is set under the lights of Friday night for the Pitt Panthers (4-2) to go on the road and take on the Syracuse Orange (3-3) in an ACC battle. The over/under is set at 51 points.
Since opening the season with a loss to Virginia, Pittsburgh has come on very strong with a 4-1 record over the past month and a half that includes a win over #15 UCF and just a seven-point loss to #13 Penn State. Most recently, the Panthers put up 33 points to defeat Duke by three.
On average, the Panthers are scoring 22 points per game on 393 yards of offense while allowing 23 points on 298 yards.
In his five games played this year, quarterback Kenny Pickett has thrown for 1,370 yards, six touchdowns, and four interceptions. Pickett’s favorite target has been Taysir Mack, who’s caught 41 passes for 511 yards and two touchdowns.
After scoring 52 and 41 points in wins over Western Michigan and Holy Cross, Syracuse fell to NC State by six points a week ago. On average, Syracuse is scoring 26 points on 378 yards of offense while allowing 26 points on 425 yards.
The duo of quarterback Tommy DeVito and receiver Trishton Jackson has been powerful this year. While DeVito has thrown for 1,534 yards, 12 touchdowns, and five picks, Jackson has racked up 499 yards and six touchdowns on 33 catches.
|10-17-19||Blazers v. Nuggets UNDER 220||Top||104-110||Win||100||11 h 55 m||Show|
100* Sharp Money Syndicate Play on Blazers/Nuggets under220 -110
Throughout the preseason, the Trailblazers (2-2) haven’t had much trouble scoring points and the Nuggets (3-0) haven’t lost a game. Tonight, these two squads will face off in Denver.
Portland has scored at least 118 points twice in their exhibition games, and they’re coming off 126-118 win over Utah.
In that game, the duo of C.J. McCollum and Damian Lillard did the majority of the damage for the Blazers. Including five three-pointers, McCollum ended the contest with a game-high 28 points in addition to four assists. Lillard finished with 25 points, five rebounds, and four assists of his own.
After going 11-of-15 from the field and 5-of-7 from three, don’t expect McCollum to be as efficient in tonight’s game.
The Nuggets have won all three games in the preseason, but have failed to score more than 111 in any of them. Most recently, Denver defeated Phoenix 107-102.
Jerami Grant led the Nuggets with 22 points in that contest, followed by 18 from Gary Harris and 16 from Jamal Murray. Despite scoring just three points, Torrey Craig led the Nuggets with a plus/minus of +20.
No Denver opponent has scored more than 102 thus far in the preseason.

100* Sharp Money Syndicate Play on Yankees -127
A Wednesday night rainout has pushed back Game 3 of the ALCS, with the winner of the series earning the right to play the Nationals in the World Series. Tonight, the Astros (107-55) and Yankees (103-59) will battle it out in New York.
Throughout the series, New York has used relievers for more than 15 of the 28 innings played thus far, so they’ll be looking for theirs starters to go deeper from this point on.
This evening, that job will fall to Masahiro Tanaka (11-9, 4.45 ERA), who starts again after a successful Game 1. In the series opener, Tanaka gave up only a single hit as he pitched six scoreless innings against the Astros. Over 41 postseason innings, Tanaka owns an ERA of 1.32.
The Astros will counter with right-hander Zack Greinke (18-5, 2.93 ERA). In his last regular season start against New York, Greinke allowed two runs over five innings. He lasted six innings in the ALCS opener, allowing three runs on seven hits.
The Yankees are 9-2 in their last 11 playoff games at home.
|10-17-19||Canucks +160 v. Blues||Top||4-3||Win||160||11 h 29 m||Show|
100* Sharp Money Syndicate Play on Canucks +160
It’s been a fairly successful start to the season for both the Canucks (3-2-0, 6 points) and Blues (3-1-2, 8 points), who will go head to head this evening in St. Louis.
Vancouver has turned around an 0-2 start to the season with three straight wins over the Kings, Flyers, and Red Wings. Over those three wins, the Canucks outscored their opponents 16-5.
On average, Vancouver is scoring 3.40 goals per game while allowing 2.20 goals per game. That +1.20 goal differential is good enough for fourth best in the NHL right now.
Center J.T. Miller has been the main man for the Canucks thus far. With three goals and seven points, Miller leads the team.
The defending Stanley Cup Champions are coming off two straight losses to the Canadiens and Islanders. The Blues were outscored 9-5 in those two games.
On average, St. Louis is scoring 3.17 goals per game while allowing 3.33 goals per game.
After four straight road games, this will be St. Louis’ first game at home in since an October 5th win over Dallas.
On top of two assists, center Brayden Schenn has scored a team-high five goals and leads St. Louis with seven points.

100* Sharp Money Syndicate Play on UL-Lafayette -6 -110
Thursday evening features a matchup of Sun Belt programs as the University of Louisiana – Lafayette Ragin Cajuns (4-2) go on the road to take on the Arkansas State Red Wolves (3-3).
After four straight wins, Lafayette suffered their second loss of the season last week as they fell to the Appalachian State Mountaineers by a score of 17-7. Offensively, the Ragin Cajuns have been great, scoring between 35 and 77 points in each of their victories.
On average, Lafayette is scoring 38 points per game on 492 yards of offense while allowing 21 points per game on 344 yards.
The Ragin Cajuns can boast a trio of productive running backs. Trey Ragas leads the team with 572 yards and six touchdowns on the ground. Following Ragas, running back Elijah Mitchell has racked up 470 yards and nine TDs while Raymond Calais has added 320 yards and a pair of touchdowns.
Arkansas State is coming off a tough 52-38 loss to Georgia State, which is the first game they’ve dropped since the team’s 55-0 beatdown to #3 Georgia. On average, the Red Wolves are scoring 34 points on 430 yards of offense while allowing 39 points on 535 yards.
This appears to be the perfect storm for Lafayette, who will love their chances with a high-powered offense going up against a defense that’s used to giving up a ton or yardage and points.
|10-17-19||Rangers v. Devils -115||2-5||Win||100||10 h 7 m||Show|
50* Powerhouse Play on Devils -115
Through six games, the Devils (0-4-2, 2 points) don’t have anything to show in the win column. They’ll try to change that tonight when they host the Rangers (2-1-0, 4 points) in New Jersey.
New York has only played three games thus far, the last of which was a 4-1 loss to Edmonton. On average, the Rangers are scoring 3.67 goals per game while allowing 3.00 goals per game.
Center Mika Zibanejad has been incredible for the Rangers throughout the start of the season. In just three games, Zibanejad leads the team in all major offensive categories with four goals, four assists, and eight points.
The Devils have had trouble putting the puck in the opposing net and keeping it out of their own. After being shutout against Boston, New Jersey’s most recent game ended in a 6-4 loss to Florida.
On average, the Devils are scoring 2.17 goals per game while allowing 4.50 goals per game. Both of those marks place New Jersey 30th out of 31 teams.
If the Devils are going to finally get a win, they’ll need left winger Taylor Hall to be good. So far, Hall leads the devils in assists, with four, and points, with five.
|10-16-19||Sabres v. Ducks -130||Top||2-5||Win||100||15 h 32 m||Show|
100* Sharp Money Syndicate Play on Ducks -130
Hockey fans will get to treat themselves to a clash of two of the NHL’s better teams in this young season as the Sabres (5-0-1, 11 points) go into Anaheim to take on the Ducks (4-2-0, 8 points) this evening.
Buffalo has earned a result from every one of their six games thus far, and that’s handed them a place atop the Atlantic Division standings. Meanwhile, the Ducks trail only Edmonton in the Pacific Division.
Both teams last played on Monday, but the results were very different. The Sabres defeated Dallas 4-0 to rack up their third win in a row, and the Ducks lost for the second time this season in a 4-2 game in Boston.
On average, the Sabres are scoring 4.00 goals per game while allowing 2.17 goals per game. The Ducks are averaging 2.17 goals per game while letting in just 1.67 goals per game, which is currently tied with Boston for the best mark in the NHL.
This will be a test of great offense versus great defense, so the Sabres will be counting on center Jack Eichel, who leads the team with nine points, and right winger Victor Olofsson, who leads the team with five goals and just became the first player in NHL history to score his first seven career goals on the power play.
|10-16-19||Melbourne United +23 v. Kings||Top||110-124||Win||100||13 h 19 m||Show|
100* Sharp Money Syndicate Play on Melbourne United +23 -110
The Kings (2-2) will open up the regular season against the Suns on October 23rd. Tonight, Sacramento will complete its final in-game preparations in the team’s preseason finale against Melbourne United.
After starting the preseason with a pair of losses to the Pacers, including a 132-131 overtime loss in the first exhibition game, the Kings have rallied to defeat the Suns 105-88 and the Jazz 128-115.
The latter of Sacramento’s wins came against Utah, when the Kings received another effective night from guard Buddy Hield. On 9-of-17 shooting from the field and 3-of-6 from three, Hield racked up 23 points in 28 minutes. Hield ended with a plus/minus of +22 and added five assists and three rebounds.
The team’s second leading scorer was Marvin Bagley III, who put up 22 points in 30 minutes on the floor. Bagley was a 50% shooter from the floor and from three on 16 and four attempts, respectively. The Kings power forward had a strong night on the boards, bringing down 11 rebounds and blocking two shots.
The Sacramento bench was led by Bogdan Bogdanovic, who scored 16 points alongside eight assists and five rebounds in 29 minutes.
|10-16-19||Spurs +4 v. Rockets||128-114||Win||100||11 h 40 m||Show|
50* Powerhouse Play on Spurs +4 -110
Through three preseason games, the Spurs (0-3) are winless. For head coach Gregg Popovich, getting better performances out of his team with just two games remaining before regular season play will be the objective. Tonight, the Spurs will take on the Rockets (3-1) in Houston.
While the Spurs have allowed between 107 and 125 points in each preseason game thus far, the Rockets have scored at least 109 points in each of their exhibition games. The bigger issue for Houston is having allowed 129 and 111 points to the Raptors in back-to-back games.
San Antonio most recently took on New Orleans in a game highlighted by Demar DeRozan and Bryn Forbes. While DeRozan had 16 points on 4-of-6 shooting from the field, Forbes was 7-for-13 on his way to 18 points for the Spurs.
It was no surprise to see both James Harden and Russell Westbrook leading the Rockets in scoring in their latest contest. Both men put up 22 points, three rebounds, and three steals while Westbrook dished out four assists and Harden assisted nine times.
Both teams will have one preseason game remaining after this evening’s contest.
|10-16-19||South Alabama v. Troy -14.5||Top||13-37||Win||100||11 h 59 m||Show|
100* Sharp Money Syndicate Play on Troy -14½ -110
Despite entering a Wednesday evening game against the South Alabama Jaguars (1-5) as a two-touchdown favorite, the Troy Trojans (2-3) have just two wins on the season.
South Alabama hasn’t won since a 37-14 victory over Jackson State, but they’re coming off a 20-17 double-overtime loss against Georgia Southern. On average, the Jaguars are scoring 17 points per game on 319 yards of offense while allowing 29 points on 400 yards per game.
With 170 yards per game on the ground, the running game is the strength of this South Alabama team. Running back Tra Minter leads the Jaguars with 477 yards and two touchdowns.
Both South Alabama and Troy enjoyed a bye week last weekend, but the Jaguars have also had two extra days to prepare for this contest.
Troy has fallen in their last two games to Arkansas State and Missouri, allowing a total of 92 points. On average, the Trojans are scoring 35 points per game on 450 yards per game while allowing 32 points per game on 402 yards.
The defense looks very susceptible right now, so Troy will be counting on quarterback Kaleb Barker to perform. On the season, Barker has thrown for 1,476 yards with 14 touchdowns and four interceptions.
|10-16-19||Maple Leafs v. Capitals -115||3-4||Win||100||9 h 46 m||Show|
50* Powerhouse Play on Capitals -115
With a pair of losses in either record, the Maple Leafs (4-2-1, 9 points) and Capitals (3-2-2, 8 points) are set for a clash in the nation’s capital tonight.
After giving up seven goals to the Lightning a week ago to mark the team’s third-straight loss, Toronto recovered well enough to earn victories over Detroit and Minnesota. In their past two games, the Maple Leafs have outscored their opponents 9-4.
On average, the Maple Leafs are scoring 4.00 goals per game while allowing 3.29 goals per game.
Center Auston Matthews leads Toronto with seven goals through the team’s first seven games, and center Mitch Marner has already racked up three goals and six assists for a team-high nine points.
Washington’s four losses, two of which came in overtime, have been separated by just a single win over Dallas a few days ago. On average, the Capitals are scoring 3.14 goals per game while allowing 3.29 goals per game.
Defenseman John Carlson has been great for the Capitals so far, earning nine assists on top of two goals for a team-high 11 points. Not surprisingly, Alex Ovechkin leads Washington with five goals.
|10-15-19||Predators +120 v. Golden Knights||Top||5-2||Win||120||15 h 4 m||Show|
100* Sharp Money Syndicate Play on Predators +120
Using a strong power play, the Golden Knights (4-2-0, 8 points) have jumped near the top of the pack in the Pacific Division. They’ll hope to continue their momentum as they host the Predators (3-2-0, 6 points) in Vegas tonight.
Both teams last took the ice against the L.A. Kings. While Nashville took the 7-4 loss in Los Angeles, the Golden Knights were able to earn a 5-2 victory the next day.
The Predators are getting used to high-scoring affairs, with an average of nearly nine goals per contest. Nashville is relying on offense by scoring 4.60 goals per game while allowing 4.20 goals per game.
Vegas has been better defensively, but not quite as proficient as the Predators on the offensive end of the ice. On average, the Golden Knights are scoring 4.00 goals per game while allowing 2.33 goals per game.
Coming off one more day of rest than their opponent tonight, Nashville will be hoping for continued production from center Matt Duchene and center Filip Forsberg. While Duchene leads the team with nine points on two goals and seven assists, Forsberg is the team’s leading goal scorer with four.
The Preds will need to limit Vegas on the power play after the Golden Knights scored on all three power play opportunities against the Kings.

100* Sharp Money Syndicate Play on Cavs +4½ -110
Through three preseason games, the Celtics (3-0) have failed to lose a single contest. Tonight, the Celtics will go into Cleveland to take on the Cavaliers (1-2) for the second-straight game.
Game by game, Boston has scored 107, 100, and 118 points against the Hornets, Magic, and Cavs. Meanwhile, Cleveland has scored 120, 105, and 72 against San Lorenzo, Detroit, and Boston.
In Sunday’s matchup between these two squads, a 37-9 second quarter put the game out of reach for Cleveland before the halftime break. On the way to a 118-72 blowout, Boston outscored the Cavs in every single quarter of play.
The Cavaliers can’t be much worse from the three-point line. The five Cleveland starters went a combined 1-for-22 from beyond the arc. So, of a potential 66 points, the starter alone left 63 points on the floor.
Sindarius Thornwell was Cleveland’s best player, scoring 12 points and bringing down five rebounds in 17 minutes. Thornwell wasn’t all that far off from matching the combined point total of all five starters, who managed just 21 points on a horrid shooting night.
The Celtics, who received double-digit scoring nights from three starters and three subs, should be expecting tougher competition from a Cavaliers team that would struggle to shoot worse than they did a few nights ago.
|10-14-19||Lions +4 v. Packers||Top||22-23||Win||100||33 h 6 m||Show|
100* Sharp Money Syndicate Play on Lions +4 -110
As a favorite in the NFC, the Packers (4-1) will be aiming to defend their home field as they host the Lions (2-1-1) in Green Bay this evening.
Detroit, who is coming off a bye week, only lost by four to a strong Kansas City team. Before that, the Lions took down the Chargers and Eagles in consecutive weeks. On average, Detroit is scoring 24 points per game on 401 yards of offense while allowing 24 points per game on 418 yards.
Green Bay was victorious against the Cowboys a week ago, but fell to the Eagles at home the week before. On average, the Packers are scoring 24 points per game on 354 yards of offense while allowing 19 points per game on 397 yards.
Although underdogs, the Lions have won four straight against the Packers, including last year’s 31-0 slaughter at Lambeau.
Aaron Rodgers is on a four-game streak of throwing for at least 300 yards on Monday Night Football, but he’ll be without his top target, Davonte Adams, who remains sidelined with turf toe.
Through four games, Matthew Stafford has thrown for 1,122 yards, nine touchdowns, and two picks.

100* Sharp Money Syndicate Play on Cardinals +123
It’s time for a vital Game 3 of the NLCS as the Nationals (93-69) aim to extend their 2-0 series lead over the Cardinals (91-71) tonight in Washington D.C.
Through two games, St. Louis has managed to score just a single run. With 2-0 and 3-1 wins, the Nationals haven’t been much better offensively, but they’ve been able to overwhelm the Cardinals’ bats in the first two games in St. Louis.
Hoping to claim their first win of the series, the Cardinals will send out right-hander Jack Flaherty (11-8, 2.75 ERA) to start. Flaherty earned the win in Game 5 of the NLDS matchup against the Braves, but there was little pressure after his lineup racked up 10 runs in the top of the first inning. Still, Flaherty only allowed a single run in six innings.
The Nationals are seeking series dominance, and they’ll be confident with right-hander Stephen Strasburg (18-6, 3.32 ERA) on the mound. Strasburg now has a 1.32 ERA in six career postseason games, but he did give up a pair of home runs in Game 5 of the NLDS.
For the Cardinals, Paul Goldschmidt is the man to watch. In the postseason, Goldschmidt is batting .345 with four doubles and two homers.

100* Sharp Money Syndicate Play on Stars -105
The Stars (1-4-1, 3 points) have a tough task in front of them as they go into Buffalo to take on a hot Sabres (4-0-1, 9 points) team that’s earned points in every one of their first five games.
Dallas may be happy to be on the road, where they earned their lone victory of the season against Washington a week ago. Since then, the Stars have lost two straight at home. On average, the Stars are scoring 2.17 goals per game while allowing 3.00 goals per game.
Left winger Roope Hintz has been the most productive player on the Dallas roster. Thus far, Hintz has scored four goals and added an assist for five points.
Buffalo sits atop the Atlantic Division after back-to-back wins over Montreal and Florida. On average, the Sabres are scoring 4.00 goals per game and giving up 2.60 goals per game.
Center Jack Eichel leads the team with seven points on three goals and four assists. Right winger Victor Olofsson is Buffalo’s leading goal-scorer with four.
The Stars should be able to get back on track if they improve the power play. Thus far, Dallas has scored on just one of 20 power play chances.

100* Sharp Money Syndicate Play on Sharks -115
The San Jose Sharks (1-4-0, 2 points) are looking up at every other team in the Pacific Division. Tonight, they’ll be hosting the middle-of-the-division Calgary Flames (2-2-1, 5 points) with a chance to move up the list.
The Flames have alternated wins and losses throughout their first five games, most recently falling 6-2 to the Vegas Golden Knights. On average, Calgary is scoring 2.60 goals per game while allowing 3.40 goals per game.
Saving just 155 of 171 shots faced, Flames goaltender David Rittich has a save percentage of .906%. Thus far, Rittich has played in every game.
Left winger Johnny Gaudreau continues to lead the Flames offensively. In addition to being tied with Matthew Tkachuk with a team-best four assists, Gaudreau is tops on the team with three goals and seven points.
After four straight losses to open the 2019-20 season, San Jose earned their first win in a 5-4 contest against the Blackhawks in their most recent contest. On average, the Sharks are scoring 2.00 goals per game while allowing 4.20 goals per game.
Both Martin Jones and Aaron Dell have played in goal for San Jose. Dell has been the better of the two, saving 61 of 69 shots for a save percentage of .884.
Defenseman Brent Burns leads the Sharks with two goals, three assists, and five total points.

100* Sharp Money Syndicate Play on Yankees +148
It was a dominant performance by the Yankees (103-59) in Game 1 of the ALCS, but the Astros (107-55) are sending out one of the game’s best pitchers when these two clubs match up for Game 2 this evening.
New York’s flawless postseason run extended into the second round when they erupted for seven runs while holding Houston scoreless. Gleybor Torres was the MVP of the game, batting in five runs on a 3-for-5 performance that included a solo shot.
Perhaps the most surprising part of the game was New York’s ability to hold a good Astros lineup to no runs.
Hoping to blank Houston again, the Yankees will send out left-hander James Paxton (15-6, 3.82 ERA) to start. In his first postseason outing, Paxton allowed three runs while striking out eight batters in 4 2/3 innings. In a June outing against the Astros, Paxton allowed just one run.
For Houston, ace Justin Verlander (21-6, 2.58 ERA) is scheduled to start. Verlander holds a 2.92 ERA in the playoffs while wearing an Astros jersey, but he only lasted 3 2/3 innings in his last outing against the Rays on short rest.

50* Powerhouse Play on Bulls/Raptors under224½ -109
The Bulls (0-3) have failed to earn a win in any one of their three preseason contests this far, but have another chance this evening when they go on the road to take on the Raptors (1-1). The over/under is set a 224.5 points.
Although Chicago is yet to finish a game as the victors, they’ve scored 112 points or more in two of their three games. Only a 105-87 loss to Indiana has kept the Bulls from triple digits.
In that loss to the Pacers, guard Coby White was the most prolific offensive player by a wide margin. With 24 points on 10-of-22 from the field and 4-of-9 from three, White led all scorers. White also managed to snag eight rebounds in his 30 minutes on the floor.

Through a rough four-game start, defenseman Brent Burns leads the Sharks with three points on one goal and two assists. No San Jose player has more than one goal to his name thus far.
After signing Patrick Marleau to a one-year deal, the Sharks could have the team’s leading career goal scorer (508) and points leader (1,082) on the ice.
The Blackhawks’ lone game of the season ended as a one-goal loss to Philadelphia in the Czech Republic. Six days have passed since that season opener, so Chicago should be well rested.
Right-winger Patrick Kane has gotten off to a hot start, already having scored one goal and notching two assists to rack up three points in a single game of action.

100* Sharp Money Syndicate Play on Giants/Patriots under42 -110
The NFL’s perennial powerhouse takes the stage on Thursday Night Football as the undefeated Patriots (5-0) play host to the Giants (2-3) in New England. The over/under is set at 42 points.
New York dropped the first two games of the season, but has gone 3-1 with rookie quarterback Daniel Jones under center. However, the Giants are coming off a 28-10 loss at the hands of Minnesota.
On average, the Giants are scoring 19 points per game on 379 yards of offense. Going up against a New England defense that’s allowed just 34 total points through five games, expect New York to struggle.
Thus far, Jones is 70 of 109 for 760 yards, four touchdowns, and three interceptions. And although there was hope among the Giants organization that Saquon Barkley could return for this matchup, it’s unlikely that their star running back will play.
While the Patriots haven’t played the toughest schedule in the world through five weeks of play, they did take down the otherwise undefeated Bills by a score of 16-10. On average, the Pats are scoring 31 points per game while sporting the league’s best defense, which allows just under seven points per game.
Quarterback Tom Brady is coming off a 348-yard, three-TD, one-interception game against the Redskins, but was held to just 150 yards with no touchdowns and one pick against the Bills.

50* Powerhouse Play on Predators -130
While the Capitals (2-0-2, 6 points) have earned at least one point in every contest this year, the Predators (2-1-0, 4 points) have failed to do so just once. Tonight, these two teams face off in Nashville.
Washington followed up one-goal wins over the Blues and Islanders with one-goal, overtime losses to the Hurricanes and Stars. On average, the Capitals are scoring 2.50 goals per game and allowing 2.50 goals per game.
John Carlson leads Washington with five total points on one goal and four assists. T.J. Oshie has added another two goals and one assist to start the season.
The Capitals trail only the undefeated Carolina Hurricanes in the Metropolitan Division. Meanwhile, the Predators are third in the Central Division, looking up at both St. Louis and Colorado.
A pair of 5-2 wins over Minnesota and San Jose has been separated by a 5-3 loss to Detroit for the Preds. Offensively, Nashville has gotten out to a hot start with 4.33 goals per game through three contests. On average, the Predators are allowing 3.00 goals per game.
With six points on six assists, center Matt Duchene leads the Predators with an average of two points per game. Filip Forsberg leads Nashville with three goals.

100* Sharp Money Syndicate Play on Syracuse/NC State under55½ -110
Identical records will face off when the NC State Wolfpack (3-2) host the Syracuse Orange (3-2) on Thursday night. The over/under is set at 55.5 points.
Although Syracuse allowed just three total points in games against Liberty and Holy Cross, they were pummeled to the tune of 104 total points against Maryland and #1 Clemson. On average, Syracuse scores 29 points per game on 385 yards of offense while allowing 28 points per game on 438 yards.
Quarterback Tommy DeVito leads the Orange with 1,234 yards, 11 touchdowns, and five interceptions. DeVito’s biggest weapon is receiver Trishton Jackson, who’s caught 24 balls for 393 yards and five touchdowns.
NC State has failed to rise up against their quality opponents so far this year, losing to both FSU and West Virginia. On the bright side, the Wolfpack have allowed just 29 total points against their other three opponents.
On average, NC State is scoring 30 points per game on 431 yards of offense while allowing 21 points per game on 321 yards.
Bailey Hockman is expected to start at quarterback for the Wolfpack. So far, Hockman has thrown for 255 yards, one touchdown, and one interception on 50 attempts.
Both Hockman and DeVito are coming off injuries, so neither starting spot is set in stone.

100* Sharp Money Syndicate Play on Astros -260
The Astros (107-55) entered the postseason as the favorites to win the World Series. If they’re going to make it to the ALCS to face the Yankees, they’ll first need to win a Game 5 against the Rays (96-66) in Houston.
This ALDS matchup started according to plan for Houston, who jumped out to a 2-0 series lead after outscoring Tampa Bay 9-3 through the first two games. 10-3 and 4-1 losses in Tampa Bay forced a fifth and final game, but the Astros will be happy this one’s at home, where they’ve gone 60-21 on the season.
The away team in this matchup is likely to use multiple arms against the Astros, as the Rays have found success with that formula. However, right-hander Tyler Glasnow (6-1, 1.78 ERA) will get the start. Glasnow will be pitching on an extra day of rest, but he was beaten up in Game 1, allowing a two-run shot to Jose Altuve and allowing four hits over 4 1/3 innings of Game 1.
Right-hander Gerrit Cole (20-5, 2.50 ERA) gets the start for Houston. Cole was dominant in Game 2, striking out 15 batters over 7 2/3 innings. Cole entered the series with an 0-2 record and 3.51 ERA in four career starts against the Rays, but the star right-hander is now unbeaten over his last 23 starts.

As the Utah Jazz (1-0) and Milwaukee Bucks (1-0) prepare to kick of the 2019-20 NBA regular season, they’ll face off against one another this evening. Both teams won their preseason opener.
The Jazz began their preseason campaign with a 133-81 win over the Adelaide 36ers. Center Tony Bradley led the team with 18 points and a plus/minus of +30. Jeff Green added 16 points in 18 minutes of play.
The Bucks kicked off the preseason with a 122-112 win over the Chicago Bulls. The Lopez brothers each played 19 minutes. Robin Lopez ended the game with 14 points and five rebounds while Brook Lopez racked up 13 points, five rebounds, and three assists.
Utah will go into this game with several players on the injured list. Donovan Mitchell, Dante Exum, and Rudy Gobert are all listed as day-to-day at this point in time, with no reason with risk their health in a preseason game.
While Giannis Antetokounmpo, Eric Bledsoe, and Khris Middleton didn’t see action in the first preseason game, coach Mike Budenholzer has intimated those players are likely to get action in this game.
The Jazz will play New Orleans, Sacramento, and Portland before getting the regular season underway. The Bucks have Dallas, Washington, and Minnesota remaining on their preseason schedule.

You’ll only find one loss between the records of both the Appalachian State Mountaineers (4-0) and Louisiana-Lafayette Ragin Cajuns (4-1). The over/under is set at 68.6 points as these two teams get set to face off Wednesday night.
The jewel in Appalachian State’s arsenal of wins is a 34-31 win over North Carolina on September 21st. On average, the Mountaineers are scoring 47 points per game on 429 yards of offense while allowing 29 points per game on 420 yards.
Appalachian State has scored 56 points in two contests this year, thanks in large part to running back Darrynton Evans. In four games, Evans has racked up 471 yards and nine touchdowns on the ground, and is averaging seven yards per rush.
The Ragin Cajuns’ sole loss of the season came against Mississippi State in the season opener by a score of 38-28. Now, UL-Lafayette is on a four-game winning streak that includes a 77-6 victory over Texas Southern.
On average, the Ragin Cajuns are scoring 44 points per game on 540 yards of offense while allowing 21 points per game on 345 yards.
Lafayette can boast a pair of rushers over 400 yards on the ground. Elijah Mitchell has rushed for 402 yards and nine touchdowns. Trey Ragas has rushed for 548 yards and six touchdowns while averaging 9.8 yards per carry.
While both offenses are used to scoring plenty of points, the Appalachian State defense has allowed between 31 and 41 points in each of their last three games while Lafayette has allowed 24 and 25 points in their last two.

With the benefit of playing one more game than tonight’s opponent, the Buffalo Sabres (2-0-1, 5 points) sit two points ahead of the Montreal Canadiens (1-0-1, 3 points) in the Atlantic Division. Tonight, the Sabres will host the Canadiens.
Montreal opened the season with a 4-3 OT loss to Carolina before beating Toronto by a score of 6-5. Buffalo is coming off a one-goal loss to the Blue Jackets, but they opened the season with a win over Pittsburgh before exploding for seven goals in a victory over New Jersey.
Goalie Carey Price is allowing 3.69 goals per game with a .900 save percentage for the Canadiens, but it’s backup goaltender Keith Kinkaid who will make his season debut tonight. Carter Hutton has been in goal for Buffalo’s two wins, allowing an average of 1.50 goals with a save percentage of .939.
With one goals and two assists, Brendan Gallagher leads the Canadiens. Defenseman Rasmus Dahlin leads the Sabres with one goal and four assists.
Buffalo won three of four contests against the Canadiens last season, two of which ended in overtime.
Look for Jeff Skinner, who scored seven points on four goals and three assists against Montreal last year.

100* Sharp Money Syndicate Play on Cardinals -110
There’s a winner-take-all affair taking place this late afternoon in Atlanta as the Braves (97-65) host the Cardinals (91-71) in Game 5 of this NLDS matchup.
After dropping Game 1 in a 13-run game after being outscored 4-3 in the ninth inning, the Braves responded by winning the next two games and allowing only a single total run. Game 4 was decided by just one run in extra innings as Cardinals catcher Yadier Molina tied the game on a clutch, eighth-inning hit before winning the game in the 10th with a sacrifice fly.
Throughout the series, Braves outfielder Ronald Acuna Jr. has been the best player in series. In four games, Acuna Jr. is 8-for-16 with three doubles, a triple, and a homer.
23-year-old Jack Flaherty (11-8, 2.75 ERA) is expected to start Game 5 for the Cardinals. The St. Louis right-hander pitched Game 2 of the series, holding the Braves to three runs over seven innings. In two regular season games against Atlanta this year, Flaherty allowed just three runs over 12 total innings.
The Braves are expected to send out Mike Foltynewicz (8-5, 4.54 ERA) for his second start of the series. In seven career starts against St. Louis, Foltynewicz is 3-4 with a 7.64 ERA, but he tossed that seven-inning, three-hit, scoreless gem earlier this series.

We’re only a few games into the 2019-20 season, but we can still enjoy a matchup between two undefeated teams as the Boston Bruins (2-0-0, 4 points) go into Vegas to take on the Golden Knights (2-0-0, 4 points).
Thus far, the strength of the Bruins has been the defense. Through two games, Boston has held opponents to just one total goal while scoring three goals of their own. Now, the Bruins will play their third-straight away game to start the season.
The Golden Knights have looked good on both sides of the game in their two contests against San Jose. Allowing just one goal in each game, Marc-Andre Fleury has a .965 save percentage so far. And with nine total goals in two games, Vegas looks good on the attack as well.
Coming off a Stanly Cup Finals Game 7 loss to the Blues, Boston aims to stay perfect against an opponent they’ve defeated in three of the last four matchups.
Although Vegas has been scoring more goals so far this season, Boston was slightly better in that phase of the game a year ago. While the Bruins ranked 11th with 3.13 goals per game in 2018-19, the Golden Knights ranked 13th with 3.00 goals per game.

50* Powerhouse Play on Hurricanes +115
The Carolina Hurricanes (3-0-0, 6 points) have gotten off to a lightning-fast start, and they’ll aim to continue that momentum on the road as they take on the Panthers (1-1-0, 2 points) in Florida.
While the Hurricanes are currently the top team in the Metropolitan Division, the Panthers are ahead of only winless Ottawa in the Atlantic Division.
Coming off a 4-3 win over the Lightning, Carolina has scored either three or four goals in every game of this young season. The defense has been good enough, as the Hurricanes haven’t allowed more than three goals in any game. Despite winning all three matchups thus far, each contest has been decided by a single goal.
In fact, every Carolina game has gone to overtime, with one being decided in a shootout.
Florida has a tough schedule to start the season, having this Carolina game on the heels of back-to-back contests versus Tampa Bay, who led the NHL in scoring by a wide margin last year. However, the Panthers followed up a 5-2 loss on the road with a 4-3 home victory on Saturday.
Center Erik Haula has now scored in each of the first three games after coming over from the Vegas Golden Knights. Before a 15-game season marred by injury last year, Haula scored a career-high 29 goals the year prior.

If the Yankees (103-59) are going to sweep in the Twins (101-61) in the ALDS, they’ll have to do so in Minnesota as these teams get set for Game 3.
Through the first two games of the playoff series, New York has scored a combined 18 runs while giving up six. Thus far, the Yankees are displaying their offensive prowess after finishing the regular season with the most runs scored (943 runs), while suppressing the bats of the league’s second-best offense (939 runs).
Hoping to further limit the Twins lineup will be Luis Severino (1-1, 1.50 ERA). Since missing most of the season with injuries, the Yankees right-hander got off to a hot start with nine scoreless innings before a more colorful third outing. In his lone career start at Target Field, Severino allowed one run on four hits over 5 2/3 innings in 2018.
Right-hander Jake Odorizzi (15-7, 3.51 ERA) will start for the Twins with the season on the line. Over his last 10 starts, Odorizzi hasn’t allowed more than three earned runs. In 18 career appearances against New York, Odorizzi is 7-9 with a 4.71 ERA.
Minnesota lacks a home-field advantage, having lost 10 of their last 11 home games in the divisional round of the playoffs.

Only two NFL teams remain undefeated at this point in the season. One of those teams, the 49ers (3-0), will play host to the visiting Browns (2-2) in San Francisco on Monday Night Football. The over/under is set at 47 points.
Despite dropping games to the Titans and Rams, Cleveland is coming into to this matchup with plenty of confidence after a big 40-25 victory over the Ravens a week ago. On average, the Browns are scoring 22 points per game on 401 yards of offense while allowing 23 points per game on 360 yards.
The Browns finally got Jarvis Landry going last week, as the receiver racked up 167 yards on eight catches. Nick Chubb diced up the Baltimore defense for 165 yards and three TDs on 20 carries.
Baker Mayfield has struggled to protect the football so far this season. Through four games, Mayfield has thrown for 1,147 yards, four touchdowns, and six interceptions. However, last week was his best performance of the young season, as he threw for 342 yards with one TD and one pick.
While the 49ers have remained unbeaten through three weeks of play, all three wins have come against teams with losing records. On average, San Francisco is scoring 32 points per game on 426 yards of offense while allowing 18 points per game on 301 yards.
While Jimmy Garoppolo has been getting his feet under him, the Niners have scored a low of 24 points and a high of 41. On the year, Garoppolo has thrown for 739 yards, five touchdowns, and four picks while completing 69% of his passes.
San Francisco comes in as the second-highest scoring offense in the NFL, on average.

Winnipeg’s first victory of the season was an unlikely one after going down by four goals to the Devils. In the end, the Jets won 5-4 in a shootout while the Islanders were losing 2-1 to the Capitals.
Last year, the Jets went 47-30-5 for 99 points. With 3.29 goals per game, Winnipeg was the seventh-best team in the NHL. By allowing 2.96 goals per game, the Jets ranked 15th among all teams.
The Islanders were able to rack up four more points last season, finishing with 103 points on a 48-27-7 record. With 2.72 goals per game, the Islanders ranked 22nd in the NHL a year ago. Defensively, the Islanders were the best team in hockey by letting in just 2.33 goals per game.
Despite a loss to Washington, the Islanders continued their good defensive form in the season opener by allowing just two goals in the game.

The Buffalo Bills (3-1) will put their strong defense to the test on the road as they go into Tennessee to take on the Titans (2-2).
In the AFC South, every team owns a record of 2-2, so this matchup gives Tennessee the chance to stay in the race. The Titans are coming off a 24-10 victory over Atlanta after dropping back-to-back games against Indianapolis and Jacksonville.
The AFC East looks like a two-team race between Buffalo and the undefeated Patriots, as the Jets and Dolphins are both winless. New England edged out the Bills last week in a hard-fought 16-10 contest.
On average, the Bills are scoring just 19 points per game on 404 yards of offense while allowing 16 points per game on 290 yards. Meanwhile, the Titans are scoring 23 points per game on 352 yards of offense while allowing 16 points per game on 361 yards.
The difference in this contest could be the quarterback play. For Buffalo, Josh Allen is expected to play after being cleared from concussion protocol. On the season, Allen has thrown for 903 yards, three touchdowns, and six interceptions while completing just 60.3% of his passes.
For Tennessee, Marcus Mariota is completing 62.2% of his passes for 933 yards, seven touchdowns, and no interceptions so far.

In this ALDS matchup, the Tampa Bay Rays (96-66) have a tough task ahead of them as they go into Houston once again for another go at the Astros (107-55). The Astros won Game 1 of the series by a score of 6-2.
For the third straight year, Jose Altuve homered in the first game of the ALDS. Altuve’s dinger came in a four-run inning for the Astros; an inning the Rays couldn’t recover from.
Tonight, the Rays will send out left-hander Blake Snell (6-8, 4.29 ERA) to start Game 2. The 2018 AL Cy Young Award winner pitched just 107 innings in 2019 after undergoing elbow surgery in the middle of the season. In six career starts against the Astros, Snell is 2-2 with an ERA of 4.73.
Right-hander Gerrit Cole (20-5, 2.50 ERA) will start on the mound for Houston. In addition to the Astros winning each of Cole’s last 13 starts of the season, Cole earned a record of 16-0 with a 1.78 ERA over his final 22 starts. In four career starts against Tampa Bay, Cole is 0-2 with a 3.51 ERA.

The Minnesota Wild (0-1-0, 0 points) aim to avoid a winless start through two games of a fresh season when they go into Colorado to take on the Avalanche (1-0-0, 2 points).
While the Avalanche were beating up on Calgary 5-3 in their season opener, the Wild were letting in four goals in the third period of an eventual 5-2 loss to Nashville.
A year ago, the Wild finished with 83 points on the back of a 37-36-9 record. There was no playoff hockey for Minnesota, but there was for the Avalanche. After finishing the regular season with a record of 38-30-14 and 90 points, Colorado pulled the upset over Calgary in the playoffs before being knocked out by San Jose.
With just 2.56 goals per game, Minnesota was one of the worst offensive teams in hockey a year ago, ranking 27th. Colorado rounded out the top 10 with their 3.15 goals per game.
Defensively, Minnesota was slightly better than their opponents today. The Wild finished 12th in the NHL with 2.84 goals allowed per game. The Avalanche finished 16th among all teams with 2.98 goals allowed per game.
With the return of a healthy Ryan Suter, who was hindered by an ankle injury for a large part of last season, the Wild have playoff aspirations this year.

As the Utah Jazz get ready to kick off a new season in search of further postseason success, they’ll begin their preparations with a preseason matchup against the Adelaide 36ers. The over/under is set at 209 points.
This 2019 Jazz team should feature more firepower than the team has had in years. Alongside breakout star Donovan Mitchell, a full-strength Jazz team will start Mike Conley, Bojan Bogdanovic, and Rudy Gobert.
Last year, Mitchell led all Jazz players with 23.8 points per game. Mitchell also added 4.1 rebounds and 4.2 assists per game.
At center, Gobert led Utah with 12.9 rebounds and 2.3 blocks per game. Gobert was also the team’s second leading scorer with 15.9 points per game.
Former Grizzlies point guard Conley figures to be a big upgrade for the Jazz. Last year, Conley scored 21.1 points per game while adding 3.4 rebounds and 6.4 assists on average.
Bogdanovic brings his 18 points and 4.1 rebounds per game over from his 2018-19 season with the Pacers.
Although the Jazz should never be in doubt against the 36ers of the NBL, that wasn’t the case last year. In a preseason game last season, the 36ers outscored Utah in the first and third quarters.

The Hurricanes edged out Montreal 4-3 in the season opener. The Capitals have already played twice, defeating both the Islanders and Blues by a goal each.
Carolina now aims to build on last season’s 99 points on a 46-29-7 record. The Hurricanes were a middle-of-the-pack team offensively with 2.96 goals per game (16th). By allowing just 2.70 goals per game, the Hurricanes were tied for seventh among all teams.
The Capitals are coming off yet another season of more than 100 points, with 48 wins, 26 losses, and eight OT losses for 104 points. As the fifth-best offensive team a year ago, Washington scored 3.34 goals per game. By letting in 3.02 goals per game, the Capitals were tied for 17th in the NHL.
Washington is already getting strong production out of Jakub Vrana, who put St. Louis away with an overtime goal in the season opener and a scored a first-period goal that set up T.J. Oshie to score the game-winner in the second period.

After dropping the season opener 5-2, the Florida Panthers (0-1-0, 0 points) are looking for instant revenge against the Tampa Bay Lightning (1-0-0, 2 points). This contest will be the Panthers’ home opener.
A game that ended with a lopsided score line was very tight throughout the majority of the game. It wasn’t until after Vincent Trocheck tied the game at 2-2 midway through the third period that the Lightning took over. Ondrej Palat scored the third Tampa Bay goal on a power play about one minute later, handing the Lightning a lead they would never give up.
This contest features two of the better goalies in the NHL. Andrei Vasilevskiy is in net for the Lightning after winning the Vezina Trophy last season. For the Panthers, Sergei Bobrovsky is now the goalie after coming over from Columbus.
Lightning fans will remember Bobrovsky well after the Blue Jackets stunned Tampa Bay in the first round of the playoffs at the end of last season.
With five goals in the first game, the Lightning look poised to repeat as the top scoring team in the NHL. Last year, Tampa Bay finished far ahead of everyone else with 3.89 goals per game. The next-best team was Calgary with 3.52 goals per game.
The Panthers ranked ninth among all teams with 3.22 goals per game.

Each with just a single win on the season, the Florida International Panthers (1-3) will play host to the UMass Minutemen (1-4) on Saturday. The over/under is set at 67.5 points.
After a tough start to the season, UMass was able to claim their first victory of the season last week in a 37-29 win over Akron. On average, the Minutemen are scoring 25 points per game on 329 yards of offense while allowing 47 points on 526 yards.
It’s been a rough season for UMass, but running back Bilal Ally has done his part. Leading the offense in rushing, Ally has racked up 353 yards and three touchdowns thus far on the year.
FIU hasn’t started the year much better, dropping games to Tulane, Western Kentucky, and Louisiana Tech. The Panthers’ lone win came against New Hampshire.
On average, Florida International is scoring 22 points per game on 361 yards of offense while allowing 31 points per game on 454 yards.
With James Morgan taking the majority of snaps, Florida International hasn’t enjoyed a great deal of success. Morgan is 51 of 86 for 627 yards, three touchdowns, and two interceptions.
Neither offense has been great, but they should both be able to match or exceed their season high of 37 points for UMass and 31 points for FIU when they go up against these defenses Saturday.

The Ball State Cardinals (1-3) haven’t had much to celebrate so far in the 2019 season. However, as the Cardinals go on the road to take on the Huskies of Northern Illinois (1-3) they have a great chance against an underwhelming team with just a single win to its name.
For Ball State, quarterback Drew Plitt has been solid. With a completion percentage of 67.6%, Plitt has thrown for 11 touchdowns and four interceptions. Led by receiver Riley Miller, who has 306 yards and two touchdowns on 22 receptions, the Cardinals offer three players with at least 200 receiving yards and five players with at least 100 receiving yards.
Although Ball State has lost to NC State, FAU, and Indiana, they’ve managed at least 24 points in each contest. The Cardinals are averaging 34 points per game and giving up 35 points per game.
Despite losing three straight games to #13 Utah, Nebraska, and Vanderbilt, Northern Illinois is a five-point favorite in this contest. The Huskies have scored a maximum of 24 points this year, with 18 points being their largest offensive output in any of their defeats.
With just four touchdowns and three picks on the season, Ross Bowers hasn’t been good enough to win ball games for Northern Illinois. He’ll look to add to his 1,056 passing yards on the season.

50* Powerhouse Play on Air Force/Navy over45 -109
College football fans have the pleasure of enjoying a military academy matchup on Saturday when the Navy Midshipmen (2-1) host the Air Force Falcons (3-1). The over/under is set at 45 points.
Air Force has notched wins against Colgate, Colorado, and San Jose State. The Falcons’ only loss came in a tough road game against #20 Boise State that ended 30-19.
On average, Air Force is scoring 35 points per game on 442 yards of offense while allowing 21 points per game on 304 yards.
As a triple option team, Air Force has six players with at least 100 yards on the ground, including quarterback Donald Hammond III (135 yards, five touchdowns). Running back Kadin Remsberg leads the team with 342 yards and three touchdowns on the ground, followed by the 338 yards and two touchdowns of Taven Birdow.
Navy has played just three games thus far, winning against Holy Cross and East Carolina before falling to Memphis a week ago. The Midshipmen have scored at least 42 points in each of their two wins in addition to putting up 23 in the Memphis loss.
On average, Navy is scoring 37 points a game on 457 yards of offense while allowing 17 points per game on 251 yards.
Navy doesn’t like to throw the ball much either, but quarterback Malcolm Perry has been in the end zone plenty of times this year. In addition to his 336 yards and three TDs through the air, Perry is the team’s leading rusher with 275 yards and seven touchdowns.

50* Powerhouse Play on TCU/Iowa State under43½ -109
After a two-point defeat at the hands of Baylor, Iowa State (2-2) looks to rebound from its second loss of the season against TCU (3-1) Saturday afternoon. The over/under is set at 43.5 points.
Although the Horned Frogs have scored at least 34 points in every contest this year, including a 41-38 loss to SMU, Iowa State presents the toughest defense TCU has come up against.
On average, TCU is scoring 41 points per game on 488 yards of offense while giving up 19 points a game on 246 yards.
While the Horned Frogs can spread the ball to any one of five receivers with more than 100 yards thus far, the offense is led by running backs Darius Anderson and Sewo Olonilua. Anderson has rushed for 483 yards and five touchdowns while Olonilua has rushed for 202 yards and two touchdowns.
While losing to Baylor and #19 Iowa, the Iowa State Cyclones haven’t allowed more than 26 points in any contest. In fact, the Cyclones only allowed 26 in a triple overtime game against Northern Iowa.
On average, Iowa State is scoring 35 points per game on 500 yards of offense while allowing 22 points per game on 352 yards. It’s worth noting that Iowa State’s points-per-game average is elevated by a 70-point performance over UL Monroe.
Quarterback Brock Purdy (1,331 yards, 8 TDs, 2 INTs) has a pair of 300-yard receivers to throw to. Tarique Milton has caught 16 balls for 344 yards and two touchdowns, and Deshaunte Jones has caught 27 passes for 334 yards and a touchdown.

Texas Tech (2-2) will play a ranked opponent for the second time in as many weeks when they host #21 Oklahoma State (4-1) on Saturday. The over/under is set at 63.5 points.
The OSU Cowboys are coming off two straight ranked games of their own, beating #24 Kansas State but narrowly losing to #12 Texas the week prior. On average, Oklahoma State is scoring 41 points per game on 532 yards of offense while allowing 24 points a game on 380 yards.
Running back Chuba Hubbard is the key piece of this Cowboys offense. On 128 carries, Hubbard has rushed for 938 yards and 10 touchdowns. On average, Hubbard is running for 188 yards and two touchdowns per game.
Texas Tech has faced two good opponents this year and lost to them both, though nobody expected the Red Raiders to compete with #6 Oklahoma. On average, Texas Tech is scoring 28 points a game on 460 yards of offense while allowing 24 points a game on 390 yards.
A Red Raiders offense boasting three 100-yard rushers and four 100-yard receivers is led by quarterback Alan Bowman, who’s thrown for 1,020 yards, six touchdowns, and three interceptions.
Against quality opponents, Oklahoma State is averaging 28 points a game and Texas Tech is averaging 15 points a game. Combined, that’s nowhere near the 63.5 point total set for this matchup.

50* Powerhouse Play on Maryland/Rutgers under57 -110
After getting out to a great start to the season, Maryland (2-2) has lost its last two contests. Saturday, the Terrapins will go on the road to take on the Scarlet Knights of Rutgers (1-3). The over/under is set at 57 points.
With a combined 142 points in its first two games, Maryland defeated both Howard University and #21 Syracuse in the first two weeks of the season. But after earning a top-25 ranking, the Terrapins fell to Temple by a field goal before getting demolished by #12 Penn State.
On average, Maryland is scoring 40 points per game on 435 yards of offense while allowing 25 points per game on 378 yards.
The problem Maryland faces heading into this week’s matchup is a recent lack of offensive production. After scoring just 17 against Temple, the Terrapins were shutout by the Nittany Lions.
After defeating UMass in the season opener, Rutgers has fallen in three straight games to #20 Iowa, Boston College, and #20 Michigan. In their games against ranked opponents, the Scarlet Knights have been shutout.
On average, Rutgers is scoring 16 points per game on 302 yards of offense while allowing 33 points per game on 413 yards.
The Scarlet Knights haven’t gotten a ton of production from the receiving core. Running back Raheem Blackshear leads the team with 29 catches for 310 yards and two touchdowns. Receiver Bo Melton, who has 11 catches for 206 yards and a TD, is the only other Rutgers player with more than 54 receiving yards.

50* Powerhouse Play on Utah State/LSU under74 -110
The undefeated #5 LSU Tigers (4-0) will face a surprisingly tough opponent at home when they host the Utah State Aggies (3-1) Saturday. The over/under is set at 74 points.
A three-point loss to Wake Forest in the season opener is the only thing that stands in the way of an undefeated season for Utah State to this point. Over the past couple of weeks, the Aggies have earned a pair of quality wins over San Diego State and Colorado State.
On average, Utah State is scoring 39 points per game on 533 yards of offense while allowing 22 points per game on 377 yards.
Quarterback Jordan Love leads the way for Utah State with 1,207 yards, six touchdowns, and five picks. Running backs Jaylen Warren (335 yards, four touchdowns) and Gerold Bright (301 yards, two touchdowns) give the Aggies offense a good balance.
This LSU team looks more complete than any team they’ve had over the past decade. With a more modern offense, the Tigers have put up at least 45 in every contest, including a win against #9 Texas.
On average, LSU is scoring 58 points per game on 563 yards of offense while allowing 23 points per game on 320 yards.
Quarterback Joe Burrow has looked incredible for the Tigers this season. With three 300-yard receivers, Burrow has thrown for 1,520 yards and 17 touchdowns with just two interceptions through four games.

100* Sharp Money Syndicate Play on Central Florida/Cincinnati over60 -110
With a loss to Pittsburgh, the Central Florida Knights (4-1) kissed goodbye another undefeated regular season. Now, #18 UCF looks to continue taking out its frustration against the Cincinnati Bearcats (3-1) on Friday night. The over/under is set at 60 points.
Other than UCF’s 35-34 loss to Pitt, the Knights haven’t scored fewer than 45 points in any contest, including a win over Stanford. On average, UCF is scoring 49 points per game on 568 yards of offense while allowing 19 points a game on 324 yards.
The duo of quarterback Dillon Gabriel and receiver Gabriel Davis has been incredibly productive for the Knights. Gabriel has thrown for 1,338 yards, 14 touchdowns, and two picks, and Davis has caught 25 balls for 499 yards and eight touchdowns.
Cincinnati has an impressive win over UCLA on the schedule, but was blown out by #5 Ohio State by 42. On average, Cincinnati is scoring 28 points a game on 408 yards of offense while allowing 21 points per game on 297 yards.
The Bearcats offense can point to a 35-point performance over Miami of Ohio and a 52-point performance over Marshall. Quarterback Desmond Ridder has thrown for 815 yards, eight touchdowns, and three picks.
With the pace at which UCF plays, both teams should get a large number of possessions, and UCF normally takes advantage of those. If UCF hits its offensive average, Cincinnati will need just 11 points to hit the total.

100* Sharp Money Syndicate Play on Yankees -178
Two of baseball’s most explosive teams are set to face off in an ALDS as the Yankees (103-59) host the Twins (101-61) in New York.
The Yankees finished seven games ahead of Tampa Bay to win the AL East. The Twins finished eight games above Cleveland to win the AL Central.
Throughout the regular season, New York and Minnesota were battling for the honor of having the best lineup in the MLB. With 943 runs scored, the Yankees finished as the top dog in the majors. The Twins finished second with 939 runs scored.
The home run title was an even closer race. In the end, the Twins hit one more homer than the Yankees with a record-breaking 307 dingers on the season.
All of that adds up to a tough task for this evening’s two starting pitchers, as Minnesota right-hander Jose Berrios (14-8, 3.68 ERA) and New York left-hander James Paxton (15-6, 3.82 ERA) face off.
While Berrios makes his first postseason start, he previously pitched against the Yankees in a Wild Card relief appearance. Berrios left with the loss after allowing and two-run dinger by Aaron Judge as part of three total runs.
In six career starts against Minnesota, Paxton owns a 2.27 ERA. The Yankees lefty will be happy to have home-field advantage after posting a 3.35 ERA at home versus a 4.33 ERA on the road.

The Blue Jackets are set for their first game of the 2019-20 season as they host the Maple Leafs (1-0-0, 2 points) this evening.
Toronto is coming off a season opener of its own in which the team scored five goals in a win over Ottawa.
Although the Maple Leafs come into this season with higher expectations than the Blue Jackets, it was Columbus who took down the Lightning in the first round of last year’s playoffs while Toronto fell to Boston in the same round.
Last year, Toronto was one of the best offensive teams in the NHL with 3.49 goals per game (4th in the league). With 3.12 goals per game, the Blue Jackets ranked 12th.
Defensively, the Maple Leafs were 20th among all teams by letting in 3.04 goals per game. Columbus ranked 11th with 2.82 goals allowed per game.
Although Columbus was able to take down last year’s best regular season team with a sweep in the playoffs, they’ll be entering a new season without leading goal scorer Artemi Panarin and starting goalie Sergei Bobrovsky.

100* Sharp Money Syndicate Play on Rockets -3½ -110
Coming off a 140-71 victory over the Shanghai Sharks, the Houston Rockets will face off against the Clippers in another preseason matchup. This will be Los Angeles’ first preseason contest, and will take place in Honolulu, Hawai’i.
After a 53-29 season, the Rockets will head into a new year with James Harden at the forefront of everything they do. However, Houston has added a big piece in the form of former Oklahoma City Thunder point guard Russel Westbrook.
Last season, Harden scored 36.1 points per game while earning an average of 6.6 rebounds and 7.5 assists. Meanwhile, Westbrook racked up 22.9 points, 11.1 rebounds, and 10.7 assists per game.
Despite putting Westbrook and Harden together, the more anticipated duo will be that of Kawhi Leonard and Paul George. Leonard comes to LA after a championship season with the Raptors, and George arrives in his new home after playing with Westbrook in Oklahoma City last year.
Leonard, who averaged 26.6 points, 7.3 rebounds, and 3.3 assists per game last year, is unlikely to play in the Clippers’ two preseason games in Hawai’i.
In the 2018-19 season, George led the Thunder with 28 points per game. George also average 8.2 rebounds and 4.1 assists per game.

Two American Athletic Conference teams are set to battle it out when the Temple Owls (3-1) go on the road against the East Carolina Pirates (3-2). The over/under is set at 47.
Only a loss to Buffalo stains the record of the otherwise perfect Owls, having beaten both Georgia Tech and #21 Maryland. A balanced Temple team is scoring an average of 31 points a game on 433 yards of offense while allowing 17 points per game on 282 yards.
Temple enjoyed its best offensive performance when it exploded for 56 against Bucknell.
Temple quarterback Anthony Russo can boast 1,071 yards and 10 touchdowns through the air thus far in the season, but he’s also tossed six picks in four games.
East Carolina is through five games of its 2019 season. Wins over Gardner-Webb, Old Dominion, and William & Mary are overshadowed by two large defeats to NC State and Navy. On average, East Carolina is scoring 21 points per game on 370 yards of offense while allowing 23 points per game on 342 yards.
The Pirates’ best performance came against Gardner-Webb. Including a 31-point first half, East Carolina ended with a whopping 48 points.
Eastern Carolina has the pleasure of sending out four 100-yard rushers through five games of the season. Behind running back Demetrius Mauney and his 199 yards is quarterback Holton Ahlers, who’s rushed for 186 yards and three touchdowns.
Look for receiver Blake Proehl to make some big plays tonight. Proehl has 20 catches for 283 yards and two touchdowns on the season.

100* Sharp Money Syndicate Play on Canadiens +140
After a surprising run to the Eastern Conference Finals in last year’s playoffs, the Carolina Hurricanes are looking to start off the new season on a strong note as they play host to the Montreal Canadiens.
The Hurricanes defeated the Capitals 4-3 and swept the Islanders to make it to the Eastern Conference Finals, where they were swept by the Bruins. On the flip side, the Canadiens are looking for a second-straight year of progress after improving their win total from 29 to 44 a season ago.
In total, Montreal finished with 96 points on a 44-30-8 record. The Hurricanes ended the 2018-19 season with a record of 46-29-7 and 99 points.
Offensively, these two teams were very close last year. While the Canadiens were tied for 13th in the league with 3.00 goals per game, the Hurricanes scored a 16th-best 2.96 goals per game.
Defensively, Carolina was the better squad. By allowing just 2.70 goals a game, Carolina was tied for seventh in the NHL. Montreal was ranked 13thwith 2.88 goals allowed per game.
Brendan Gallagher, who led the Canadiens with 33 goals last season, returns to build on last year’s production.

50* Powerhouse Play on Rangers -125
The Winnipeg Jets will start the 2019-20 season away from home as they go into New York to take on the Rangers.
While the Jets earned a playoff spot a year ago by finishing with 99 points on 47 wins, 30 loss, and five overtime losses, they were knocked out in the first round by the Blues. The Rangers failed to make the playoffs after finishing seventh in the Metropolitan Division with a record of 32-36-14 and 78 points.
Although the Jets were an average team on the defensive side of the game, they were a strong team on offense. Winnipeg let in 2.96 goals per game last season, which was good enough for 15th in the NHL. With 3.29 goals per game, the Jets finished seventh in the league.
New York was mediocre in pretty much every aspect of the game throughout the 2018-19 season. With 2.70 goals per game, the Rangers were 23rd among all teams. By allowing 3.26 goals per game, the Rangers were 23rd.
Coming off a down season, Henrik Lundqvist return as goalie for the Rangers. Last year, Lundqvist went 18-23-10 with a 3.07 goals allowed average and .907 save percentage.

The stage is set for an NLDS matchup between the NL Central-winning Cardinals (97-71) and NL East-winning Braves (97-65) in Atlanta.
While St. Louis is an average team on the road with a record of 41-40, the Braves are 50-31 at home. These two clubs met up for two three-game series during the regular season. With a record of 4-2, Atlanta won both series.
The Cardinals are going with right-hander Miles Mikolas (9-14, 4.16 ERA) to start the NLDS. Making his postseason debut, Mikolas had a strong end to the regular season. Over his last six starts, Mikolas struck out 35 in 35 2/3 innings while posting an ERA of 3.03.
Left-hander Dallas Keuchel (8-8, 3.75 ERA) will start for the Braves at home. Making his 10th postseason start, Keuchel is 4-2 with a 3.31 ERA in his playoff career. Over his final nine outings of the regular season, Keuchel posted a 2.55 ERA.
The Braves will be in great shape if center fielder Ronald Acuna Jr. and first baseman Freddie Freeman are at full health. While Acuna Jr. led the club with 41 home runs, Freeman was tops on the Braves with 121 RBIs.

100* Sharp Money Syndicate Play on Sharks +160
Hockey is finally back, and we get a particularly juicy opening-night matchup in the Western Conference as the Golden Knights host the Sharks in Las Vegas. These two teams will go head to head once again on Friday.
This is a grudge match for the Golden Knights, who were knocked out of the playoffs by San Jose in controversial fashion a season ago. In a Game 7 classic, Vegas was up 3-0 when Cody Eakin was given a five-minute major for cross-checking. NHL officials later said Aekin should’ve been given a two-minute minor, but the damage was done.
That penalty launched San Jose into a four-goal frenzy. A last-ditch Vegas goal sent the game to overtime, but the Sharks won the series and sent the Golden Knights packing.
Coming into a new season, the Sharks will be without Joe Pavelski, who scored a team-high 38 goals, and Evander Kane, who scored 30 goals of his own a season ago. Pavelski moved to the Dallas Stars; Kane is on a suspension.
However, San Jose will be happy to have a healthy Erik Karlsson. After offseason surgery, the two-time Norris Award winning defenseman is good to go.
Looking at last year’s teams, this is a defensive strength versus offensive strength.
Defensively, the Gold Knights were the 10th-ranked team in the league by allowing just 2.78 goals per game compared to the 3.15 goals the Sharks let in per game (21st). Offensively, the Sharks were much better, scoring 3.52 goals a game (T-2nd) while Vegas managed just 3.00 goals a game (T-13th).

The stage is set for the American League Wild Card game as the Athletics (97-65) will play host to the Rays (96-66) in Oakland.
Both teams will feel as though they’ve been playing playoff baseball for a while now after having to stay ahead in a tight, three-team race for two Wild Card spots. Entering October, Tampa Bay won seven of its last 10. The Athletics won 13 of their last 18 in the regular season.
The visiting Rays will go with right-hander Charlie Morton (16-6, 3.05 ERA) to start. In two starts against the Athletics this season, Morton is 1-0 with a 0.68 ERA. In his seven postseason appearances, Morton is 2-2 with an ERA of 4.60.
Left-hander Sean Manaea (4-0, 1.21 ERA) gets the start for Houston. Manaea has been good enough since coming off the injured list on September 1 to keep Mike Fiers from starting. In three career starts against the Rays, Manaea is 1-1 with a 2.70 ERA.
Oakland will be happy to have this game at home, as Morton has never won there in three starts. In his last five road games, Morton posted an ERA of 7.52.

Before getting swept by the Rockies to close out the regular season, the Brewers (89-73) closed the season as the hottest team in baseball by winning 18 of 20. Tonight, Milwaukee gets its shot against the Nationals (93-69) in Washington.
This Brewers club rallied around the loss of MVP Christian Yelich, who led the team with 44 homers, 97 RBIs, and a .329 average before going down. In the end, Milwaukee finished two games behind the Cardinals in the NL Central, but three games ahead of the Mets for the second Wild Card spot.
The visitors in this contest will start with right-hander Brandon Woodruff (11-3, 3.62 ERA). The Brewers are fortunate to have a deep bullpen, as Woodruff is likely to only go a few innings after recently coming back from an oblique injury. With that being said, the Brewers are 18-4 when Woodruff pitched in the regular season.
At home, Washington is going with veteran right-hander Max Scherzer (11-7, 2.92 ERA). Although Scherzer has been one of the game’s best pitchers over recent years, he’s struggled in for the Nats in October. In four postseason games for Washington, Scherzer is 0-2 with a 3.72 ERA.

With a combined record of 0-6 through the first three weeks of the NFL season, both the Cincinnati Bengals (0-3) and Pittsburgh Steelers (0-3) will feel like the season is over with a loss in this evening’s Monday Night Football offering. The over/under is set at 45.5 points.
This contest will feature two of the bottom-eight teams when it comes to scoring. While the Bengals are scoring an average of 18 points a game (25thin the NFL), the Steelers are mustering just 16.3 points per game (30thin the NFL).
The biggest issue for both of these offenses, aside from injuries, is the fact that they’ve had little to no success running the football. With 64 rushing yards per game, Pittsburgh ranks 29thin the league. With 41.7 rushing yards per game, Cincinnati ranks dead last among all teams.
Neither defense has been particularly good, as the Bengals have allowed 27.7 points a game while the Steelers are letting up 28.3 points per contest. However, it’s the inept offenses that are keeping these teams winless.
The current Steelers offense looks entirely different from the one we always expected be among the league leaders over the past several years. Without Big Ben, Antonio Brown, and Le’Veon Bell, backup quarterback Mason Rudolph leads the team. On the season, Rudolph is 24 of 46 for 286 yards, four touchdowns, and two picks.
In short, neither offense on the field this evening has given us the confidence that we’ll see a total of 46 points on the scoreboard after 60 minutes of play.

Sunday Night Football features a pair of NFC heavyweights as the New Orleans Saints (2-1) get set to host the Dallas Cowboys (3-0). The over/under is set at 47 points.
Dallas has gotten off to a brilliant start, taking down two division opponents on the way to an undefeated record thus far. In each of their first three games, the Cowboys have scored at least 31 points. On average, Dallas is scoring 32 points a game on 485 yards of offense.
Defensively, the Cowboys are allowing an average of 15 points a game on 347 yards. However, the Saints should present the toughest offense Dallas has seen to this point, even with Teddy Bridgewater at quarterback.
Dak Prescott has been great through three games. Completing 74.5% of his passes, Prescott has thrown for 920 yards, nine touchdowns, and two picks. Ezekiel Elliot has gotten up to speed very quickly, having already rushed for 289 yards and a pair of TDs.
The Saints have faced a tough schedule to start the season, but they’ve won more than they’ve lost. And you can forgive New Orleans for dropping a game to the Rams after Drew Brees was injured in the middle of the contest.
Even with Brees sidelined, New Orleans was able to outscore Seattle in a 33-27 game a week ago. Bridgewater was good enough with 177 yards and two touchdowns through the air. Alvin Kamara was the MVP of the game, racking up 69 yards and a touchdown on the ground with another 92 yards and another score as a receiver.
On average, the Saints are scoring 24 points a game on 347 yards of offense while allowing 27 points on 453 yards.

After an entire season of holding off the Indians in the AL Central, the Twins (101-60) head into the last game of the regular season against the Royals (58-103) with an eight-game lead in the division. Kansas City will play the part of the host in this contest.
Although they’re still overlooked when it comes to World Series projections, Minnesota has been neck-and-neck with the Yankees all season long when it comes to the league’s best offense. The Twins have scored 935 runs (2nd) and hit 304 home runs (2nd) on the year, both trailing only New York.
The Twins have a good shot at finishing the year first overall in the home run department if they can hit a few off Royals right-hander Jorge Lopez (4-9, 6.35 ERA). The Twins hit two dingers off Lopez on their way to seven runs on eight hits in his last start. That outing lasted just 2 1/3 innings for Lopez.
In five at-bats against Lopez, Nelson Cruz has hit two homers.
Left-hander Martin Perez (10-7, 5.13 ERA) gets the ball to start for the Twins as they rest Jake Odorizzi for the playoffs. In his last outing, Perez gave up five runs over 2 1/3 innings. In four starts in the month of September, Perez has posted an ERA of 7.00.

The Tigers (47-113) have been the worst team in baseball, but they have a chance to close out the season with two straight wins as they take on the White Sox (71-89) in Chicago in the final contest of the season.
Right-hander Spencer Turnbull (3-16, 4.59 ERA) will start the final game of the season for Detroit. Turnbull hasn’t earned a win since the last day of May, but he’s been good as of late. Over his last two outings, Turnbull has given up a total of three runs over 11 innings while notching 13 strikeouts.
At home, the White Sox are scheduled to send out Ross Detwiler (3-5, 6.85 ERA) to start. The Chicago left-hander faced the Tigers in early July when he held the opposition to two earned runs over six innings, but didn’t figure into the decision.
The Tigers haven’t enjoyed a ton of success this year, but Miguel Cabrera is still getting it done for his club. With a .281 average and 58 RBIs, Cabrera leads Detroit. Brandon Dixon has been the next-best hitter for the Tigers, batting in 52 runs while racking up a team-best 15 homers on the season.
Center fielder Victor Reyes is batting .320 with a home run and three RBIs over the last seven days for Detroit.

50* Powerhouse Play on Braves +102
The Mets (85-76) gave it a good go in the second half of the season, but will fail to make the playoffs this year. As the season comes to a close, New York will host the Braves (97-64), who won the NL East and prepare to make a run at the World Series.
As Mets fans begin turning their attention to next year, they still have something to celebrate regarding this season, as Pete Alonso has set a new rookie record with 53 home runs. Alonso leads the club with those 53 dingers and his 120 RBIs.
Aiming to shut down Alonso and company will be rookie right-hander Mike Soroka (13-4, 2.60 ERA), who starts for Atlanta today. With a potential start in Game 3 of the NL Divisional Series, Soroka should be limited to 70 or so pitches in this one. In four starts against the Mets, Soroka is 4-0 with a 2.19 ERA.
Right-hander Noah Syndergaard (10-8, 4.30 ERA) will start for New York. Syndergaard has been poor lately, allowing a .348 average to opposing batters while posting a 6.97 ERA over his past four starts. In eight career starts against Atlanta, Syndergaard is 0-2 with a 3.65 ERA.
|09-28-19||Padres +149 v. Diamondbacks||5-6||Loss||-100||11 h 39 m||Show|
50* Powerhouse Play on Padres +149
The Padres (70-90) will be aiming to finish the season on a strong note after a run of four straight losses. San Diego will have a chance to take down the Diamondbacks (83-77) in Arizona this evening.
Right-hander Garrett Richards (0-1, 11.81 ERA) will start for the Padres tonight. It’s been a short, up-and-down season for Richards, who’s been poor in one outing and solid in another. Richards hasn’t made it through the fourth inning in either of his first two starts, so don’t expect a lengthy outing in this one.
The Diamondbacks will counter with left-hander Robbie Ray (12-8, 4.28 ERA). Ray’s last outing was against the Padres, in which he allowed four runs over 5 1/3 innings, although he did notch 10 Ks. Ray will be looking to add to his career-high 225 strikeouts in his final start of the season.
Over his last three starts, Ray is 0-1 with a 7.50 ERA. In 15 career starts versus San Diego, Ray is 5-5 with a 4.15 ERA.
Eric Hosmer, who leads the Padres with a .267 batting average, has hit two home runs in just 12 at-bats against Ray.

50* Powerhouse Play on Colorado State/Utah State under71 -110
Saturday night will feature a matchup between the Colorado State Rams (1-3) and Utah State Aggies (2-1) in Utah. The over/under is set at 71 points.
It’s been a rough start for Colorado State. Other than a 38-13 win over Western Illinois, the Rams have allowed at least 41 points in each of the team’s three losses.
On average, Colorado State is scoring 35 points a game on 551 yards of offense while giving up 40 points a game on 439 yards.
Offensively, Colorado State is led by feature running back Marvin Kinsey Jr., who’s rushed for 556 yards and three touchdowns so far this season. The Rams also have two receivers over 300 yards and five receivers over 100 yards through the air.
If not for a three-point loss to Wake Forest, Utah State would be undefeated. The Aggies dominated Stony Brook before an impressive win over San Diego State last week.
On average, Utah State is scoring 40 points per game on 562 yards of offense while allowing 21 points per game on 404 yards.
Through three games, quarterback Jordan Love has racked up 1,003 yards on 88 of 129 passing with four TDs and three picks. In addition to a 320-yard rusher in Jaylen Warren, Love is working with five receivers who’ve amassed at least 130 yards receiving.
|09-28-19||Cubs +178 v. Cardinals||Top||8-6||Win||178||12 h 58 m||Show|
100* Sharp Money Syndicate Play on Cubs +178
The Cubs (83-77) picked a bad time to hit a rough patch. Before yesterday’s win over St. Louis, Chicago had lost nine straight. Meanwhile, the Cardinals (90-70) have watched their lead in the NL Central fade to just one game above the Brewers as St. Louis has dropped three straight. The Cardinals will host the Cubs this evening with just two games remaining on the season.
The visiting Cubs will send out Cole Hamels (7-7, 3.92 ERA) to start. The Chicago left-hander is making his final start of the season after skipping his last start with fatigue in his left shoulder. In 15 innings against the Cardinals this season, Hamels hasn’t allowed a single earned run.
Right-hander Adam Wainwright (14-9, 3.98 ERA) gets the start for St. Louis. Wainwright had a tough game his last time out. In five innings against the Diamondbacks, Wainwright allowed five runs and two walks. In four starts against the Cubs this year, Wainwright is 1-2 with a 3.91 ERA.
The Cubs will likely be without full services from Anthony Rizzo, Kris Bryant, and Javier Baez. While Baez has been pinch running, the other two are unlikely to see any game time.
|09-28-19||Braves +103 v. Mets||0-3||Loss||-100||12 h 48 m||Show|
50* Powerhouse Play on Braves +103
The Braves (97-73) have won the National League East and have their sights set on the postseason. However, they’ll head into New York to take on the Mets (84-76) first. The Mets won the first game of this series by a score of 4-2.
After this matchup, only one regular season game remains for both Atlanta and New York.
Mets rookie slugger Pete Alonso has now hit 52 home runs after knocking one out yesterday. If Alonso can hit another in one of the final two games, he’ll set the new record for homers by a rookie.
Hoping to avoid such a record setting game will be Mike Foltynewicz (8-5, 4.46 ERA), who starts for the Braves tonight. The Atlanta right-hander faced the Mets in late August when he allowed just one run on two hits over seven innings. Over his last six starts, Foltynewicz has put up an ERA of 1.19.
Left-hander Steven Matz (10-10, 4.37 ERA) is scheduled to start for New York. Matz will be pushing a couple of career highs this evening as he adds to his 154 1/3 innings pitched while making his 32ndappearance of the season. In 12 career starts against Atlanta, Matz is 5-2 with a 3.22 ERA.

50* Powerhouse Play on East Carolina/Old Dominion over46½ -110
Coming off two straight losses, the Old Dominion Monarchs (1-2) will host the East Carolina Pirates (2-2) in an early evening game on Saturday. The over/under is set at 46.5 points.
The visiting Pirates suffered two heavy defeats at the hands of North Carolina State and Navy, but racked up a pair of wins against Gardner-Webb and William & Mary. On average, East Carolina is scoring 21 points a game on 386 yards of offense while allowing 23 points a game on 354 yards.
The Pirates rely heavily on the running game, led the by three players over 140 rushing yards on the season. One of those players is quarterback Holton Ahlers, who’s also thrown for 711 yards, two touchdowns, and three picks.
After opening with a win over Norfolk State, Old Dominion has faced tough competition. The Monarchs lost to both Virginia Tech and #21 Virginia, but they managed to score 17 points in each contest.
On average, Old Dominion is scoring 19 points a game on 295 yards of offense while giving up 27 points a game on 305 yards.
The Monarchs offense likes to spread the ball out through the air. Led by Eric Kumah’s 93 yards, Old Dominion has eight players with at least 37 yards receiving. Against relatively stiff competition, the Monarchs can boast two 100-yard rushers between Lala Davis (158 yards, one TD) and Kesean Strong (116 yards, one TD).
Although neither offense has been consistently great, an Old Dominion offense that’s been suffocated by tough competition over the last couple of games will be eager to put up points. After scoring 17 against Virginia, how much can the Monarchs score against East Carolina?

100* Sharp Money Syndicate Play on Iowa State/Baylor over54 -110
Only a one-point loss to rival #19 Iowa has kept the Iowa State Cyclones (2-1) from a perfect record through three games. Saturday afternoon, the undefeated Baylor Bears (3-0) will play host to Iowa State. The over/under is set at 54 points.
Iowa State has already experienced a pair of very close games, one of which went to overtime. The Cyclones then took out their frustration from the Iowa game against UL Monroe by winning 72-20. On average, the Cyclones are scoring 39 points per game on 531 yards of offense while allowing 21 points per game on 33 yards.
The Cyclones offense has been spreading the ball and rolling. In addition to having four receivers over 150 yards, Iowa State can boast six total players of 60 yards rushing on the season. Leading the offense is quarterback Brock Purdy, who’s thrown for 989 yards, six touchdowns, and one pick.
Baylor hasn’t played the toughest competition in the world to start the season, but they’ve gotten the job done. The Bears also showed their offensive prowess by scoring 56 and 63 points in the first two games of the year.
On average, Baylor is scoring 47 points a game on 497 yards of offense while allowing 15 points a game on 261 yards.
Baylor has three rushers over 100 yards for the season, led by the 186 yards of John Lovett. Denzel Mims leads all receivers with 249 yards and three touchdowns through three games. Quarterback Charlie Brewer has thrown for 665 yards and seven touchdowns without a pick.
With two offenses that have shown explosive potential, 54 points should be surpassed before this contest is over.
|09-28-19||USC v. Washington OVER 60||14-28||Loss||-110||29 h 24 m||Show|
50* Powerhouse Play on USC/Washington over60 -110
The table is set for a Saturday afternoon contest between two ranked teams as the #17 Washington Huskies (3-1) play host to the #21 USC Trojans (3-1). The over/under is set at 60 points.
Only a 30-27 overtime loss to BYU has kept the Trojans from starting the year off 4-0. On the bright side, USC can claim a pair of wins over ranked opponents as they’ve defeated #23 Stanford and #10 Utah. With a win over #17 Washington, USC would be sitting pretty.
On average, USC is scoring 33 points a game on 443 yards of offense while allowing 24 points a game on 421 yards.
The Trojans offense can really get going behind three very good receivers. Michael Pittman Jr. has 31 catches for 437 yards and three touchdowns, Tyler Vaughns has 27 catches for 370 yards and two touchdowns, and Amon-Ra St. Brown has 19 catches for 207 yards and three touchdowns.
For Washington, a second-week loss to Cal has been surrounded by three dominant victories over Eastern Washington, Hawai’i, and BYU. On average, the Huskies are scoring 41 points per game on 461 yards of offense while allowing 18 points per game on 332 yards.
Washington has firepower all over the field offensively, including three receivers with a combined 766 yards and seven touchdowns, as well as three running backs with a combined 692 yards and eight touchdowns. Quarterback Jacob Eason has thrown for 1,063 yards, 10 touchdowns, and two picks.
Both teams are led by the offenses, including dangerous sets of wide receivers who can score on any play. This could easily turn into the highest-scoring contest of the weekend.

100* Sharp Money Syndicate Play on Blackhawks +160
It’s the final game of the preseason for both the Chicago Blackhawks (2-2-1, 5 points) and Boston Bruins (3-0-2, 8 points), who face off this afternoon.
While Boston has won its two previous games over Philadelphia and New Jersey, Chicago is coming off a 0-6 loss to Washington.
Offensively, both the Blackhawks and Bruins were in the top half of the league a year ago. Chicago ranked 8thwith 3.26 goals per game, and Boston ranked 11thwith 3.13 goals per game.
Defense was a different story, as the Blackhawks struggled to keep the puck out of the net. Allowing 3.55 goals a game, Chicago ranked 30thin the NHL. On average, the Bruins gave up just 2.59 goals a game, which was good enough for 3rdin the league.
Chicago finished the 2018-19 regular season with a record of 36-34-12 and 84 points. Meanwhile, Boston racked up 107 points on a 49-24-9 record, which earned them a spot in the playoffs. After losing just two games on the way to the Stanley Cup Finals, the Bruins fell to the Blues in Game 7.

50* Powerhouse Play on Buffalo/Miami-OH over47 -110
With several 2-2 teams occupying top spots throughout the MAC, the Buffalo Bulls (2-2) will try to keep pace as they go on the road to take on the Miami of Ohio Redhawks (1-3). The over/under is set at 47 points.
Buffalo has failed to score more than 17 points twice this year, but one of those performances came against #15 Penn State. In their two victories, the Bulls put up 38 points each. On average, Buffalo is scoring 27 points on 358 yards of offense while allowing 28 points on 321 yards.
Quarterback Matt Meyers leads Buffalo with 543 yards, five touchdowns, and two picks so far this season. The running game is the strength of the Bulls offense with two 300-yard rushers in Jaret Patterson (363 yards, three TDs) and Kevin Marks (319 yards, one TD).
Miami drew the short stick when it comes to early season schedules, having to face #20 Iowa, Cincinnati, and #6 Ohio State, all of which they lost. However, the Redhawks showed they have scoring potential when they put up 48 in a win over Tennessee Tech.
On average, the Redhawks are scoring 20 points a game on 232 yards of offense while allowing 42 points a game on 442 yards. Keep in mind that a 76-5 loss to OSU is skewing those numbers.
A strong Buffalo running game mixed with a Miami offense that should have the opportunity to get rolling against lesser competition than they’ve been facing could turn this into a high-scoring affair early on.
|09-28-19||Kansas +16 v. TCU||14-51||Loss||-110||26 h 50 m||Show|
50* Powerhouse Play on Kansas +16 -110
The Kansas Jayhawks (2-2) are getting 16 points as they go into Fort Worth to take on the TCU Horned Frogs (2-1). Kansas won this matchup last season by a score of 27-26.
So far, Kansas has experienced an impressive 48-24 win over Boston College and played well against West Virginia, but the Jayhawks also let a disappointing 12-7 loss against Coastal Carolina ruin an otherwise positive start to the season.
On average, Kansas is scoring 26 points per game on 402 yards of offense while allowing 21 points per game on 374 yards.
Quarterback Carter Stanley has been good for Kansas thus far, throwing for 861 yards on 72% passing while tossing eight touchdowns and four picks. On the ground, Khalil Herbert leads the team with 384 yards, followed by the 296 yards of Pooka Williams Jr.
TCU got out to a blistering start, winning their first two games by a combined 73-20. However, the Horned Frogs couldn’t keep up with SMU last week in a 41-38 defeat.
On average, TCU is scoring 37 points a game on 443 yards of offense while allowing 20 points a game on 275 yards.
Quarterback Max Duggan is completing just 50% of his passes, but he’s been careful with the football. Duggan has thrown for 423 yards and five touchdowns without an interception on the season.
With Kansas getting 16 points on the road, this game could come down to which TCU defense shows up; the defense that held Purdue to 13 points, or the defense that gave up 41 to SMU.
|09-28-19||Central Michigan +17 v. Western Michigan||15-31||Win||100||25 h 26 m||Show|
50* Powerhouse Play on Central Michigan +17 -110
Two teams with identical 2-2 records will face off Saturday when the Central Michigan Chippewas (2-2) go on the road to take on the Broncos of Western Michigan (2-2).
Excluding a 61-0 loss to #17 Wisconsin, Central Michigan has played pretty well against its early schedule. The Chippewas scored 38 and 45 points in wins over Albany and Akron, and lost a tight 17-12 game against the Miami Hurricanes.
On average, Central Michigan is scoring 24 points a game on 342 yards of offense while allowing 31 points a game on 367 yards of offense.
Quarterback David Moore has taken over the Chippewas offense and has played reasonably well. Moore has thrown for 534 yards, two touchdowns, and a pick in limited action this year. Expect Moore to get more and more comfortable as he gets more time under center.
Other than in the 51-17 loss to #19 Michigan State, Western Michigan has scored at least 33 points in every contest. On average, the Broncos score 39 points per game on 515 yards of offense while allowing 32 points per game on 446 yards of offense.
Western Michigan is very much an offense-first team, led by quarterback Jon Wassink and his 1,222 yards, nine touchdowns, and three interceptions.
Western Michigan looks poised to outscore Central Michigan, but 17 points is a lot to lay for a Bronos defense that’s given up more than 50 points on two occasions this season.

100* Sharp Money Syndicate Play on Mariners +200
The Athletics (96-63) are on the verge of clinching an American League Wild Card spot, but they’ll likely need a win against the Mariners (66-93) in Seattle if they’re going to do so tonight.
Oakland is scheduled to send out right-hander Mike Fiers (15-4, 3.91 ERA) to start. In his last outing, Fiers held the Rangers scoreless over eight innings. After today’s outing, Fiers will be the likely starter for the AL Wild Card game on normal rest.
In three outings versus the Mariners this season, Fiers is 1-1 with a 5.79 ERA. In 11 career starts against Seattle, Fiers is 3-2 with a 6.15 ERA.
Left-hander Justus Sheffield (0-1, 6.10 ERA) will start for the Mariners at home. In his last outing, Sheffield allowed four runs on five hits in 4 1/3 innings against the Orioles in Baltimore. This will be Sheffield’s first game against the Athletics.
Over the last seven days, shortstop J.P. Crawford has been the Mariners’ best bat, hitting .250 with a homer and five RBIs. On the season, Crawford is batting .231 with seven home runs and 45 RBIs.

50* Powerhouse Play on Padres +120
Entering a new series on the back of three straight losses, the Padres (70-89) will be going into Arizona to take on the Diamondbacks (82-77).
Despite being outscored in head-to-head matchups against the Diamondbacks 80-57, the Padres are even on the year against Arizona with a record of 8-8.
Left-hander Eric Lauer (8-10, 4.53 ERA) will be on the mound to start for the visiting Padres. Just recently, Lauer’s been able to get his fastball up to 96 mph, which has earned him more swings and misses. Lauer has a record of 2-3 and an ERA of 2.88 in six career starts against Arizona.
Right-hander Taylor Clarke (5-5, 5.40 ERA) starts for the Diamondbacks at home tonight. Clarke hasn’t started a game since the middle of August. In that time, he’s made seven relief appearances, posting a 4.55 ERA in that role.
In one at-bat against Clarke, Hunter Renfroe blasted a solo shot earlier this year. Renfroe leads San Diego with 33 home runs on the season. First baseman Eric Hosmer is tops in the club in batting average (.268) and RBIs (97) among qualified batters.

100* Sharp Money Syndicate Play on Red Wings +105
After beating up on the Canadiens in back-to-back 3-0 fashion, the Maple Leafs (3-3-0, 6 points) are set to face off against the Red Wings (3-2-2, 8 points) this evening with the preseason nearing its end.
This contest will be one of two for the Maple Leafs before they kick off the season Wednesday night against Ottawa. The other will also be against Detroit.
The same can be said for the Red Wings, who have only two games versus Toronto remaining in the preseason schedule before heading to Nashville to take on the Predators on October 5.
The Maple Leafs were the much better offensive team a year ago. With 3.49 goals a game, Toronto ranked fourth in the NHL. With 2.73 goals a game, Detroit ranked 21st.
Neither team was great defensively. While Toronto let in 3.04 goals per game (20th), Detroit allowed 3.32 goals per game (27th) last season.
With a record of 46-28-8, the Maple Leafs finished the 2018-19 season with 100 points. Toronto was knocked out of the playoffs in the first round by the Bruins in seven games.
The Red Wings had a tough year in which they missed out on playoff hockey. With a record of 32-40-10, Detroit concluded last season with 74 points.
