But I'm not going to have anything positive to say about the 2016 Cleveland Browns; at least the city has the Cavaliers and Indians. The Browns essentially have an expansion team roster -- but at least there's a ton of draft picks coming so perhaps they might be good in a few years if the Browns can finally find a quarterback. I am curious to see if the "Moneyball" strategy works in the NFL. http://www.docsports.com/2016/nfl-odds-analyzing-cleveland-browns-road-schedule-174.html 2016 Wimbledon Betting Picks: Odds and Predictions for Women's Bracket http://www.docsports.com/2016/wimbledon-betting-picks-odds-predictions-womens-bracket-616.html As expected, both the Australian Open and French Open finals earlier this season involved Serena Williams. Much more surprisingly, she failed to finish the job on either occasion. Serena suffered a stunning upset at the hands of Angelique Kerber before being the victim of a less-shocking-but still unexpected-result at Roland Garros, where Garbine Muguruza took down the top seed. Will Wimbledon be Serena's time to restore order to the WTA Tour, or is another shocker in the cards? http://www.docsports.com/2016/wimbledon-betting-picks-odds-predictions-womens-bracket-616.html MLB Handicapping: Chicago Cubs Seem to Have Date with Destiny http://www.docsports.com/2016/mlb-handicapping-chicago-cubs-date-destiny-878.html The Cubs have had an exceptional season so far. The oddsmakers and bettors are definitely buying into what they are doing - at +300 at BetOnline to win the World Series they are the heavy favorites and well ahead of second choice Texas at +650. The basics of what is happening are clear - they have good players who score a lot of runs and good pitchers who are pitching very well. http://www.docsports.com/2016/mlb-handicapping-chicago-cubs-date-destiny-878.html Expert MLB Betting Advice: Weekly Baseball Bullpen Report http://www.docsports.com/2016/expert-mlb-betting-advice-baseball-bullpen-report-322.html A virtually flawless performance from its bullpen last week has the Texas Rangers increasingly looking like the best team in the American League. Conversely, the Red Sox could be in the market for a new set-up man after another shaky week from its 'pen. Here is this week's look at the hottest and coldest bullpens in MLB. http://www.docsports.com/2016/expert-mlb-betting-advice-baseball-bullpen-report-322.html MLB Betting Trends: Hot and Cold Over and Under Teams for Baseball Wagering http://www.docsports.com/2016/mlb-betting-trends-hot-cold-over-under-teams-baseball-wagering-173.html Does the fact that the San Francisco Giants seem to just win World Series titles on even years make any real sense? No, but it's important to note that while the Giants have received much less publicity, they actually have just as many wins (47) as the Chicago Cubs. The best record in the American League belongs to the Texas Rangers, and they have just as many wins as the Cubs and Giants, too. http://www.docsports.com/2016/mlb-betting-trends-hot-cold-over-under-teams-baseball-wagering-173.html Five to Follow MLB Betting: Saturday, June 25, 2016, Opening Line Report http://www.docsports.com/2016/mlb-betting-saturday-june-25-opening-line-report-559.html Entering the weekend, the Texas Rangers have a 10-game lead in the AL West Division and are -700 to repeat. But I'd now be a bit concerned about that wager. For one, 60 percent of the Rangers' rotation is on the DL in Yu Darvish, Colby Lewis and Derek Holland. While Darvish is expected back soon, you still never know how a guy will respond to Tommy John surgery, and he lasted only three starts off that. Lewis and Holland landed on the DL this week, with Lewis expected to miss two months due to a strained lat muscle in his pitching shoulder. http://www.docsports.com/2016/mlb-betting-saturday-june-25-opening-line-report-559.html MLB Handicapping: Texas Rangers even Better than Last Season http://www.docsports.com/2016/mlb-handicapping-texas-rangers-better-than-last-season-193.html Last year the Texas Rangers were a real surprise as they won the AL West. It wasn't easy, though - they came out on top by only two games. This year the expectations were high - win totals indicated that they should be able to at least match last year's effort. Well, so far they have not only matched what came before but moved to a whole new level. They have the second-best record in all of baseball and a massive 10-game lead in their division. http://www.docsports.com/2016/mlb-handicapping-texas-rangers-better-than-last-season-193.html MLB Handicapping: Cleveland Indians Surpassing Expectations at Betting Window http://www.docsports.com/2016/mlb-handicapping-cleveland-indians-betting-945.html I will fully admit that I was skeptical about the Cleveland Indians coming into this season. The first season win total I saw was 84. Even at my most optimistic the best I could convince myself to do was pass on them at that number. I couldn't convince myself that the "over" was a good idea at all. It's still early, but they are certainly working to make me look silly. As I write they already have 41 wins and just 30 losses. That puts them on pace for 94 wins - and a playoff spot as a division winner to boot. http://www.docsports.com/2016/mlb-handicapping-cleveland-indians-betting-945.html Euro 2016 Betting Advice: Ranking the Teams in the Knockout Round http://www.docsports.com/2016/euro-betting-advice-ranking-teams-knockout-round-422.html There isn't a soccer tournament that goes by where we can't debate about which teams look the best and which team have thoroughly disappointed us through the first three games of the group stage. Euro 2016 is no different. There have been several great performances by a bunch of teams, but many of them lasted only one game. Not many teams were able to look dominant through the entire group stage. On the contrary, some of the teams competing in the Round of 16 have offered up little in the way of "eye candy" and are advancing only because of the new 24-team format. http://www.docsports.com/2016/euro-betting-advice-ranking-teams-knockout-round-422.html Free Euro Cup Soccer Picks with Odds for Saturday Matches http://www.docsports.com/2016/free-euro-cup-soccer-picks-odds-saturday-matches-163.html What a wonderful tournament it has been so far. The new 24-team format, which many pundits claimed would mess up the tournament, has been nothing short of brilliant in its first true test. That's been so much so that the right half of the bracket has a combined 10 titles and 16 final appearances. The left half has not as many (no titles, 2 final appearances). http://www.docsports.com/2016/free-euro-cup-soccer-picks-odds-saturday-matches-163.html Minnesota Twins at New York Yankees 6-25-2016 Free MLB Picks & Odds http://www.docsports.com/free-picks/baseball/2016/Minnesota-Twins-at-New-York-Yankees-6-25-2016-Free-MLB-Picks-Odds-318.html The Minnesota Twins will match up with the New York Yankees on Saturday, June 25, 2016.
