Free Agent Props: Iginla, Briere

Will Daniel Alfredsson score 20 goals with the Detroit Red Wings?

NFL Betting: Underdogs to know

The New England Patriots have been underdogs only 14 times in the last seven years. They covered the spread in 11 of those occasions.

Rangers open up series in Baltimore

The Texas Rangers will send lefthander Derek Holland to the mound on Monday night as they open up a four-game MLB betting series against the Baltimore Orioles at Camden Yards.

Baltimore sends Scott Feldman out against Holland in this game. Feldman is 7-6 with a 3.43 ERA on the season.


Rockets odds climb with Howard deal

Some say Dwight Howard is only half the player he used to be, so that makes the math on the Houston Rockets' NBA odds being cut in half a little confusing.

Howard announced he will sign as a free agent in Houston and abandon the crumbling Los Angeles Lakers empire.

Oddsmakers at Bovada quickly chopped the Rockets' title odds in half from 20-1 to 10-1, tied with the Bulls and Clippers as the third betting choice. The Heat and Thunder remain far and away the top betting choices.
