Baseball Predictions: Rays at Athletics Odds and Picks
by Alan Matthews - 8/30/2013
Keep a close eye on Friday night's game between Tampa Bay and Oakland as it very well could be a preview of the one-game wild-card playoff between the teams -- they currently hold the top two spots. Friday's matchup involves the team's two aces in Rays lefty David Price and young Oakland right-hander Jarrod Parker. Whether both would be available on Oct. 1 would obviously depend on what happens in the final weekend of the season.
College Football Predictions: Syracuse vs. Penn State Odds
by Robert Ferringo - 8/29/2013
There was a time when a Syracuse-Penn State game would’ve been a headliner for the opening week of the college football season. Instead, these two programs will meet this weekend in a game that features two programs just trying to pick up the pieces and wipe off the dust of their former glory.
NBA Predictions: Can Knicks Remain Top Team in New York?
by Aaron Smith - 8/29/2013
The New York Knicks have always been New York City’s team, but this squad has some real competition now in the form of the Brooklyn Nets. Brooklyn wasn’t far behind the Knicks this past season, and the Nets have been one of the most active teams in the offseason. If you think the players don’t care about whether the Knicks are the top team in New York, you would definitely be wrong.
NHL Predictions: Anaheim Ducks Futures Odds
by Alan Matthews - 8/29/2013
It might be hard to remember after a crushing first-round loss to Detroit in the Stanley Cup Playoffs, but the Ducks were pretty much the second-best team in the Western Conference the entire 2013 season and were battling Chicago for the No. 1 seed for a while there. Anaheim still finished 30-12-6 for the best winning percentage in team history.
College Football Predictions: USC at Hawaii Week 1 Picks
by Raphael Esparza, the Vegas Sports Informer - 8/28/2013
College football is here! And we want to start the season off strong with a free college football prediction for Week 1. Tomorrow (Thursday) at 11 p.m. (ET) we will be watching the highly-anticipated USC Trojans travelling to Aloha Stadium in Honolulu to do battle against the Warriors.
NHL Predictions: Chicago Blackhawks Futures Odds
by Alan Matthews - 8/28/2013
Hard as it is to believe, but NHL training camps open in less than two weeks with the puck dropping on the 2013-14 season on Tuesday, Oct. 1. It's going to be a very compact season, and I don't mean as in lockout form. With the players taking a nearly three-week break for the Olympics, that means games will have to be crammed in more than in a normal season. It also could lead to some late-season fatigue for teams who have several Olympians and who played deep into the summer. A team like the defending Stanley Cup champion Chicago Blackhawks.
Baseball Predictions: Phillies at Mets Odds and Picks
by Alan Matthews - 8/28/2013
Let me first say that I don't let my bias get in the way of my recommendations, but I pretty much despise all the New York sports teams, so it's been a rather entertaining week for me. Especially fun was watching Rex Ryan all but fire himself with the way he handled the Mark Sanchez situation in the preseason game against the Giants. Ryan wanted to WIN!!?? the game so he put Sanchez in the fourth quarter behind a backup offensive line?
College Football Power Rankings: Ferringo 15
by Robert Ferringo - 8/27/2013
When I was a reporter in New York, a former sports editor of mine used to say that college football was nothing more than “violent figure skating”. His point was that without a playoff, college football was no different than other “sports” that rely on a third party – beyond the two teams on the field – to determine the “champion” based on style points. College football crowns its champions not on pure achievement but on its stylistic and subjective merits. Like figure skating.
Baseball Predictions: Giants at Rockies Odds and Picks
by Alan Matthews - 8/26/2013
Look, I get that baseball players are like you and me. Well, better paid than you and me. But they go out there to do a job when called upon like the rest of us. What I don't understand is why the San Francisco Giants keep trotting lefty Barry Zito out in road games. The guy simply is not the same pitcher away from AT&T Park. But I guess Zito has been stealing the Giants' money for so long that they might as well toss him out into the fire at this point as he will be a free agent after the season.
WNBA Handicapping: Phoenix Mercury Currently Underrated
by Raphael Esparza, the Vegas Sports Informer - 8/15/2013
When you think about the Western Conference in the WNBA, there are two teams that come to my mind as squads that can make a strong playoff push: the Minnesota Lynx, who are 17-5 (10-1 at home), and the Los Angeles Sparks, who are 17-7 (10-2 at home). However, don’t sleep on the Phoenix Mercury.
10 Best UFC and MMA Fighters
by Trevor Whenham - 7/18/2013
We haven’t checked in on the MMA pound-for-pound rankings since February. Not much has happened since then — other than a shocking loss by the longest-reigning champion in the history of the sport, of course. Needless to say, that has shaken up the rankings significantly — even though the rest of the champs have done their job if they have been asked to. (Previous rankings are in brackets)
2013 Indy 500 Picks and Betting Predictions with Odds
by Robert Ferringo - 5/24/2013
Thomas Jefferson, John Adams and the rest of the Constitutional Crew would be rolling over in their graves if they knew what had happened to the Indianapolis 500. The Framers of the Constitution and Founding Fathers of this bloodthirsty nation of ours tossed off the shackles of British bureaucracy. They did so in part to their firm belief in the inalienable right of human beings to fulfill their appetite for speed and death-defying feats.
NCAA Tournament Field Projections and Predictions, March 6
by Robert Ferringo - 3/6/2013
You don’t need to be Christopher Langan to know that there is plenty of uncertainty in the college basketball landscape right now. Who is the best team in the country? Who will be the No. 1 seeds? Who has a realistic shot at winning the NCAA Tournament, and will this be one of the craziest dances we’ve seen in a decade?

NCAA Tournament Field Projections and Predictions, Feb. 19
by Robert Ferringo - 2/19/2013
We are just two weeks away from beginning the Harlem Shake that is March college basketball. It starts with a few undistinguished conference tournaments. These small and mid-major schools are bouncing around and bobbing their heads while the rest of the country goes about the business of sorting out regular season championships. But you can already feel things rising. And you know what is coming.
NCAA Tournament Field Projections and Predictions, Jan. 29
by Robert Ferringo - 1/29/2013
What the hell happened to January? Maybe I am just blacking this month out of memory banks because for the last two weeks I’ve been in what feels like some Eli Roth-concocted torture chamber with my college basketball picks. But I feel like it was just yesterday that I was shaking off that New Year’s hangover and lying to my wife about why her Christmas present was late (because I ordered it Christmas Day, honey. Sorry.).
Texans at Patriots Picks and NFL Betting Odds
by Trevor Whenham - 1/10/2013
The last time these squads met, it was billed as a dream matchup for NFL fans. However, it very quickly turned into a nightmare for Houston. They were completely and utterly exposed in every aspect of the game. The result, beyond the bad loss, was a real blow to their confidence that they haven’t completely shaken.
Cowboys at Redskins Picks and NFL Betting Odds
by Trevor Whenham - 12/28/2012
The playoffs start a week early in the NFC East. Thanks to a season that was disappointing for three teams in the division, and shocking for the fourth, we head into the final weekend of the season not knowing whether the Cowboys or the Redskins will win the division and host a playoff game next weekend. This is essentially an elimination game. If the Cowboys win they are in. The same goes for the Redskins, though they have a small chance of survival even if they lose. They would still advance if Chicago and Minnesota also lose, though they will know those results before their game kicks off, and it seems unlikely that neither will win.
NFL Picks: Packers at Vikings Odds and Betting Predictions
by Trevor Whenham - 12/27/2012
It’s always exciting when these two bitter rivals play — even if it seems wrong for a key NFC North game to be decided inside where it is comfortable instead of outside in the bitter cold and snow. This game should be even more exciting than most, though. Both teams have a lot on the line, and there is history on the line as well. If Green Bay wins this one then they secure the second seed, and the Packers get the coveted bye week before their playoff journey begins. If they lose and San Francisco wins, then they would drop to the third seed and would host Chicago, Minnesota or the Giants next week.
NFL Picks: Bears at Lions Predictions and Betting Odds
by Trevor Whenham - 12/27/2012
When I told my son about this game, he was adamant that the Lions were going to win. His reasoning was simple — Lions roar louder than Bears. He’s two, and in his world that’s all that matters. Detroit probably wishes it really were that simple. If it were, then there aren’t many teams that could beat a Lion. Sadly, though, it’s about football, not your spot on the food chain, and on that front the Lions are in a very tough spot. The truth is that this year they just haven’t been very good, and now they have nothing at all to play for.
