Astros Turn to McHugh to Make Playoffs

The Houston Astros are still trying to claim the American League West crown and will turn to pitcher Collin McHugh to try and get the job done Saturday against the Arizona Diamondbacks. McHugh is 9-2 with a 3.27 ERA in his last 13 starts with the Astros going 9-4 in those games.

Houston enters Saturday just 1.5 games back of the AL West leading Texas Rangers. The ‘Stros are looking strong with a dominant 21- 5 win Friday while the Rangers lost 2-1 to the Angels.

The Diamondbacks are expected to start Jeremy Hellickson Saturday, with the pitcher hoping to redeem himself after his appearance against the Astros earlier this season. Hellickson was chased after 3.1 innings pitched while giving up six earned runs in his lone appearance against Houston this season.

OVER 5-0 When Bama and Georgia Meet

Though their clashes have been few and far between, the OVER has hit in each of the past five meetings between the Alabama Crimson Tide and the Georgia Bulldogs. The two teams will renew their acquaintances when they meet in Athens Saturday.

In their past five meetings, dating back to October 5, 2005, the Tide and the Bulldogs have averaged a combined 58.4 points per game. If the current line of Alabama +2.5 holds until kickoff, it will be the first time the Crimson Tide has been an underdog in 72 games.

The matchup will feature two of the best running backs in the country in Alabama’s Derrick Henry and Georgia’s Nick Chubb.

Henry has averaged 6.3 yards per rush this season with eight touchdowns, but did not look like himself last week as he battled tonsillitis. Chubb has been averaging a staggering 8.4 yards per carry with six touchdowns on the season.

UFC 192: Does Bader Offer Any Value?

Rashad Evans makes his long awaited return to the octagon at UFC 192, but will not have an easy road back as he faces off against top contender Ryan Bader. Despite a nearly two year layoff, Evans is currently the favorite according to 5Dimes.

“The betting line is a direct reflection of Evans' layoff, which dates to UFC 167 in November of 2013, but I also think it speaks to Bader's improvements as a fighter, both technically and athletically,” Anik explains.

Keuchel Seeking 20th Win of the Season

Cy Young candidate Dallas Keuchel enters Friday night’s road game in search of his 20th win against a surging Diamondbacks team who are 5-1 in their last six. Keuchel has been a drastically different pitcher on the road, sporting a 3.82 ERA and a 4-8 road record vs a 1.46 ERA and a 15-0 record at home.

Taking the mound for the Diamondbacks is Rubby De La Rosa, who will try to contribute to the trend of the total going under in four of the last five D-Backs games. He struggled last month, posting an ERA of 5.18, pitching six innings or less in his five outings.

Houston is 4-1 SU in their last five games, however, Arizona is 14-6 in their last 20 against Houston.

Nover: Cardinals an ATS Team to Watch

I speak of the Arizona Cardinals.

It's not the Tom Brady-led Patriots, nor the Aaron Rodgers-led Packers, who lead the NFL in points. It's the Cardinals, averaging a staggering 42 points per game.
