Baseball Betting: ChiSox vs. Tigers

The Detroit Tigers and the Chicago White Sox will close out their three-game series at Comerica Park on Sunday Night Baseball.

The White Sox are trying to stay within reach of the Tigers in the AL Central standings heading into the season's home stretch.


LSU Tigers vs Oregon Ducks in NCAA odds

It's the biggest game of the year, conveniently wrapped into the Week 1 schedule and plugged into a neutral site at Cowboys Stadium on Saturday.

Oregon played in the national title game last year and have designs on returning, but they need to start quickly as the No. 3 rated school. They face LSU, the No. 4 ranked team which also is pointed at the BCS game.

The Tigers, who face a tough SEC schedule in addition to this game, will play without suspended QB Jordan Jefferson and backup QB Jarrett Lee will run the controls. They'll face Heisman Trophy candidate LaMichael James bursting out of the Oregon backfield.


The neutral site possibly favors LSU, which some Tiger fans making the trip to Dallas. It will feel like a road game to the Ducks and they have won 15 of 19 road games dating back three seasons.

But wager against LSU at your peril. The Tigers have won 17 straight September games.


MLB Odds: Rangers vs. Red Sox

The Texas Rangers will continue their MLB betting series on the road at Fenway Park against the Boston Red Sox on Saturday.

Rangers vs. Red Sox could be a preview of a playoff matchup, with both teams looking like good bets to make it to the postseason.


SEC 2011 Odds Preview

Five different teams have won the SEC over the last six seasons, and the last five SEC champs have  gone on to win the national title. So the stakes are huge when it comes to this conference. This season the SEC starts off with two teams ranked in the top four, and eight in the Top 25. Looks like another banner year for the top conference in the country; head over to Bovada for the latest SEC odds.



Americas Got Talent Final Odds Preview

An average of 12 million viewers tune in to watch an episode of America’s Got Talent on Tuesday night’s, and that will certainly provide much action on the betting lines as the show’s Top 10 finalists square off this coming week.


TCU vs Baylor College Football Betting

To bet on the Baylor Bears Friday is to bet that TCU will lose its first regular season game since 2008.

While it's not impossible (and while many bettors seem to be throwing their support behind the Bears), it's a risky proposition betting against one of NCAA football's premiere programs at Floyd Casey Stadium.

Sophomore quarterback Casey Pachall takes over for Andy Dalton at TCU, which will move to the Big East next season. But they lost a lot of seniors and may be ripe for the taking by Baylor.


D-Backs vs. Giants: Baseball Betting

The San Francisco Giants will be looking to put a dent in the Arizona Diamondbacks' NL West lead when the teams meet in an MLB betting matchup on Friday night.

Matt Cain (10-9, 2.87 ERA) is the scheduled starter in this key contest for the Giants on Friday. Joe Saunders (9-11, 3.82 ERA) is the probable pitcher for the Diamondbacks in their road game.


Big Ten 2011 Odds Preview

The Big Ten now consists of 12 teams with the addition of Nebraska - and the Cornhuskers are the favorites to win the conference their first time around.

However, the Wisconsin Badgers and transfer QB Russell Wilson might have something to say about that, as might the scandal-rocked Ohio State Buckeyes.


Patriots vs Giants Preseason Preview

For the past six seasons the Giants and Patriots have ended their preseason schedules with a battle against each other.

Maybe that has to do with the ties between the teams (Bill Belichick spent 12 years on the New York Giants staff before becoming a ‘genius’ in New England). Maybe it's geographical proximity or the fact that non-conference battles are preferred in the preseason so you don’t risk giving away secrets for the regular season.


Mayweather Ortiz odds highlight September

Floyd Mayweather Jr. has only fought twice in nearly four years but he found ways to keep himself in the public eye.

And being 41-0 and remaining in the public eye is a good way to make yourself a huge boxing betting favorite. That’s what’s happening Sept. 17 when he faces hard-punching Victor Ortiz, a fight many hope is a prelude to a superfight between Pretty Boy Floyd and Manny Pacquiao.
