By Knup There are many things to consider before you place a futures bet on the NFL Super Bowl, and one of them is how crazy the NFL season really can be. Injuries seem to pop up all over the place, and many times it comes down to watching a team just get hot at the right time. Take the Baltimore Ravens for example from last season. Almost no one really expected the Ravens to be serious contenders at about the halfway mark of the season, but they turned it around, got hot, and went on to win the 2013 Super Bowl. Now, the new ...

By Knup I talked recently about the quarterback controversy and battle that was going to be held by the Notre Dame Fighting Irish. The Irish lost Everett Golson as they decided to dismiss him from the team and the school, something that was talked about more than just a little bit in the sports news recently. While Golson is out, it means that the Fighting Irish need to find an answer at the quarterback position. What did this mean exact...
By Edward23 A Yankee legend returns to the Bronx when manager Don Mattingly and the Dodgers begin a brief two-game set with the Yankees. Mattingly played his entire 14-year career with the Yankees and was on New York's coaching staff before leaving for Los Angeles six years ago. According to the oddsmakers at America's Bookie, the Dodgers are at -101, the Yankees are at -109 and the total is set at 8. The Yankees had a much-needed day off Monday after posting a 4-6 mark on a tough West Coast road trip. ...

By AK We are down to only a few more nights before one team is hailed a dethroner or one team becomes a defender. As we get closer to the season’s magnum opus, let’s take a step back and put the two contending teams face-to-face for a little nitpicking. The athletic versus the fundamental play While the defending champs Miami Heat aren’t exactly the youngest team in the league, their style of play fits a team with fresher legs and younger knees. With high flyers like reigning MVP LeBron James and the former 2006 Finals MVP Dwyane Wade, plus Ray Allen’s impec...
By Scott The 2013 U.S. Open will be hosted at the Merion Golf Club for the first time since 1981. The par 70 (6996 Yards) course is the shortest course for a PGA major since 2004. There has been a lot of rain this week on the course and the course will be soft, which will make it easier on the golfers. Playing at Merion should be interesting because only 11 players have played competitive rounds on the course. Most players will have never played a competitive round at Merion in the past. This week putting is going to be the biggest factor, but I also think that scrambling will play a ro...

By Knup A 27-8 record last season was no joke, and neither was the fact that the Arizona Wildcats were a strong team, and a serious major contender as well. The Wildcats had talent across their roster last season, they ended the year ranked 21st in the nation, and they obviously made it to the NCAA Tournament. They had a tough loss to the 7th ranked Ohio State Buckeyes in the thir...
By Edward23 We are less than a year away from the 2014 FIFA World Cup and things are still moving along slowly in CONCACAF, as every team has played every other team atleast once and there are two more games to be played tonight, which are the rematches between the US and Honduras and Costa Rica and Panama.

By Scott The UFC is back in Canada this weekend. UFC 161 will be held at the MTS Centre in Winnipeg, Manitoba. There are two Facebook prelim fights starting at 6pm and four more prelim fights on FX starting at 8pm. The main card starts on PPV at 10pm.

By Edward23 Chicago Blackhawks vs. Boston Bruins After putting in more than the traditional 60 minutes in each of the first two contests of the Stanley Cup Final, the Bruins will look to seize an edge in the series, when they return home for Game 3 against the Blackhawks. Boston rebounded after suffering a hard-luck 4-3 loss in triple-overtime in Game 1 as Daniel Paille netted the winner in the extra session for a 2-1 triumph on Saturday. Tuukka Rask weathered a furious first-period storm and finished with 33 saves in the victory. According to the oddsmakers at

MLB Playoffs Games for 10/14
The ALCS will continue and the NLCS will begin today. Here's a preview of the games.
American League Championship Series Game 2
Detroit Tigers vs. New York Yankees
4:00 PM ET, October 14
If the Yankees hope to capture their 28th world championship this postseason, they'll have to do it without their captain. The Yankees attempt to even the American League Championship Series at one win apiece when it hosts the Tigers on Sunday evening. Derek Jeter will be watching from the sidelines after fracturing his left ankle in the 12th inning of Detroit's 6-4 victory in the series opener on Saturday.
After fielding Jhonny Peralta's grounder, Jeter collapsed to the ground and remained there before being helped to the dugout, with his left foot never touching the ground. Jeter, who recorded his 200th career playoff hit in the second inning, has been one of the Yankees' best hitters this postseason, going 9-for-27 with a double, triple and two RBIs. He also leads the team with four runs scored.
The Yankees limited Triple Crown winner Miguel Cabrera to one hit in four at-bats and held Prince Fielder to a pair of singles, including one that plated a run. But the Yankees couldn't contain Delmon Young, who delivered an RBI single in the sixth inning, belted his franchise playoff-record sixth home run in the eighth and snapped a 4-4 tie in the 12th with a run-scoring double.
Anibal Sanchez (0-1, 2.84 ERA) vs. Hiroki Kuroda (0-0, 2.16 ERA)
Sanchez pitched well in his first career playoff appearance on Tuesday but still was tagged with the loss after allowing two runs and five hits over 6 1/3 innings in Game 3 of the AL Division Series against the Athletics. He went just 4-6 in 12 starts with the Tigers after being acquired from Miami but was strong down the stretch, yielding two runs or less in six of his final eight outings. Sanchez was tagged for seven runs and seven hits over three innings of a loss against the Yankees on August 8.
Kuroda will be pitching on three days' rest for the first time in his major-league career. The 37-year-old settled for a no-decision in Game Three of the ALDS against the Orioles on Wednesday after allowing just two runs and five hits over 8 1/3 innings. Kuroda, who recorded 11 of his 16 regular-season victories this year at home, is 0-1 with a 3.72 ERA in three career starts against the Tigers.
National League Championship Series Game 1
St. Louis Cardinals vs. San Francisco Giants
8:00 PM ET, October 14
Fresh from a historic ninth-inning comeback, the Cardinals visit the Giants in Game 1 of the National League Championship Series in a battle between the two most recent World Series champions. Both teams enter the next round carrying plenty of momentum after advancing past the Division Series in dramatic fashion. The Giants lost two straight at home against the Reds before becoming the first NL team to ever come back from an 0-2 deficit in the Division Series to win, while the Cardinals trailed the Nationals 6-0 in Game 5 of its series before recording the largest comeback ever in a winner-take-all postseason game by scoring four runs in the ninth to win 9-7.
With Jaime Garcia (left shoulder) out for the rest of the postseason, the Cardinals will start Lance Lynn in Game 1 against the Giants. Chris Carpenter is expected to start Game 2, followed by Kyle Lohse in Game 3 and Adam Wainwright in Game 4. The Giants’ Tim Lincecum will likely return to the rotation after giving up one run over 6 1/3 innings in two relief appearances in the NLDS, with Barry Zito headed to the bullpen. The Giants are expected to start Ryan Vogelsong in Game 2, followed by Matt Cain in Game 3 and Lincecum in Game 4. San Francisco needs more production from Hunter Pence, Angel Pagan and Marco Scutaro, who went a combined 10-for-60 (.167) in the NLDS, while the Cardinals hope Carlos Beltran's hot streak continues after he went 8-for-18 (.444) with two homers against the Nationals.
Madison Bumgarner (16-11, 3.37 ERA) vs. Lance Lynn (18-7, 3.78 ERA)
Madison Bumgarner looks to rebound from a rocky outing in Game 2 of the NLDS last Sunday, when he allowed four runs on seven hits over 4 1/3 innings in the Giants’ 9-0 loss. Matt Holliday is 2-for-12 (.167) with three strikeouts against Bumgarner, who went 0-2 and allowed seven runs over 13 1/3 innings in two starts against the Cardinals this season. He’s 31-4 with a 2.56 ERA when the Giants score at least three runs.
Lance Lynn made three appearances in relief in the NLDS, giving up three runs over 3 1/3 innings. After struggling in August with a 6.66 ERA, Lynn went 5-2 with a 2.76 ERA in eight September appearances (four starts). He allowed four runs on eight hits over six frames in his one start against San Francisco this season on August 7 at Busch Stadium, with Buster Posey hitting a three-run homer in the first inning.
