BetAnySports Weekend Betting Preview – Oct. 28-30
The 2016 MLB World Series dominates the betting board at BetAnySports in the final weekend of October as the best-of-seven series between the AL’s Cleveland Indians and the NL’s Chicago Cubs shifts to Wrigley Field in Chicago for the next three games starting this Friday night. The Indians drew first blood with a 6-0 victory in Game 1 as -113 home favorites, but the Cubs struck back on Wednesday night with a 5-1 win as -151 road favorites.
BetAnySports has opened Chicago as a heavy -191 favorite at home for Friday night’s Game 3 and the moneyline odds on Cleveland have been set at +181. The Cubs will turn to Kyle Kendricks as their starter in this game while the Indians will counter with Josh Tomlin. It looks like Chicago will go with John Lackey in Saturday night’s Game 4 as its starter and Cory Kluber should be back on the mound for Cleveland after winning Game 1.
Looking ahead, it appears that the Cubs will go back to Jon Lester on Sunday night to face the Indians’ Trevor Bauer. All three games are slated to get underway at 8 p.m. (ET) and they will be broadcast nationally on FOX.
There are a number of big showdowns on Saturday’s college football slate including a Big Ten battle between No. 7 Nebraska and No. 11 Wisconsin in Madison at 7 p.m. on ESPN. The top matchup in the ACC pits No. 3 Clemson on the road against No. 12 Florida State in an 8 p.m. start on ABC. Wisconsin has been listed a nine-point home favorite with the total set at 43. Clemson goes on the road as a 4.5-point favorite and the total line in that game has been set at 60. Earlier in the day in a 3:30 p.m. start on FOX Sports 1, No. 4 Washington goes on the road as a 10-point favorite against No. 17 Utah. The total line for that game has been set at 51.
BetAnySports has listed the New England Patriots as 6.5-point road favorites against Buffalo in one of the top matchups on Sunday’s 1 p.m. NFL slate on CBS. They will look to avenge an earlier loss to the Bills as the only blemish in their 6-1 start. The total for this AFC East tilt has been set at 47.
Sunday Night Football features a huge NFC East battle between the 4-2 Philadelphia Eagles and the 5-1 Dallas Cowboys in an 8:30 p.m. start on NBC. BetAnySports has listed the Cowboys as 4.5-point home favorites with the total set 43.5.
