Phillies host D-Backs on MLB odds

The Philadelphia Phillies will send their ace to the mound Tuesday night as they open up a three-game MLB betting series at home against the Arizona Diamondbacks.

Roy Halladay (15-4, 2.51 ERA) had his start on Sunday rained out, so he'll be well rested when he takes to the mound on Tuesday. The righthander has picked up the win in each of his last four starts.


Week 8 CFL Betting Odds

The panic button has been pushed in Saskatchewan, and they face a similarly desperate Toronto team in CFL betting action in Week 8 on Thursday night.

It’s one of just two games on the schedule as the league hits its bye weeks.

The Texas Rangers will be looking to extend their lead in the AL West standings on Monday as they begin an MLB betting series against the rival Los Angeles Angels.

MLB Odds Preview: Rockies vs. Cardinals

The Sunday Night Baseball betting matchup this week has the St. Louis Cardinals closing out a home set versus the Colorado Rockies.

The Cardinals are trying to overtake the Brewers for first place in the NL Central division standings at the same time as they chase the Braves for the Wild Card berth in the National League.


Rays vs. Yankees MLB Betting Preview

Well back in the AL East standings, the Tampa Bay Rays continue their series in New York against the Yankees on Saturday afternoon.

The Rays are well above .500 on the season, but in a tough division with both the Yankees and the Red Sox they're hard-pressed to make a run at a playoff berth this season.


Baseball Betting: Pirates vs. Brewers

The Milwaukee Brewers will begin a baseball betting series at home on Friday night against the fading Pittsburgh Pirates.

The Brewers are coming off a series in St. Louis against the rival Cardinals, and they'll be looking to increase their lead in the NL Central division this weekend by taking care of the Pirates.


Hardy Underdog in UFC Live 5 Odds

Dan Hardy has lived about as long as he can on his red Mohawk, funky mouthpiece, and fading reputation as a knockout artist.

The hard-punching Brit has lost three straight and faces a do-or-die scrap Sunday against Chris Lytle at UFC Live 5 at the Bradley Center in Milwaukee.


NFL Preseason Betting Preview

Preseason NFL pointspreads almost never go higher than 3.5 to 4 points – so what the hell is going on in St. Louis that the Rams moved to 7.5-point chalk against the Colts?

Sure it's the preseason and sure the Rams have lots of motivation to start well while the Colts are just trying to settle into their usual winning routine. But 7.5 points?


NFL Drug Testing May Affect Odds

NFL drug testing is being praised as an important step in player health and rooting out cheaters but it may have a spinoff impact in an unlikely area - sports betting.

While the NFL testing program will take samples on game days this season, presumably test results won't be returned before game time, making a player ineligible that day. But what if the league commences morning testing and can flag players before night games?

What if a player figures he might get caught and declares himself inactive at the last minute due to some other injury or cause?


MLB Odds: Angels vs. Yankees

The Yankees will turn to Bartolo Colon on Thursday afternoon as they close out a three-game MLB betting series against the Angels.

Colon (8-6, 3.33 ERA) has pitched New York to victories in each of his last three starts, and the team is 7-3 in his past 10 outings.
