    Stroman struggled early in the season and has been unlucky in a few games but he has pitched well to a point. The Mets need him to be focused and consistent and they win here tonight.

    Seattle has struggled in recent away games but today will likely be their bounce-back. Look at the pitching match-ups and you determine the value. This is a live underdog!

    My Pick: Seattle +123

  • Something tells me Smart Money moves on the Jags here closer to kickoff. If you saw the interview with Ramsey today, first, you'll see he's still in Jags Gear, second he clearly stated "I just want to f$%*ing win." So, what do you think Jags brass wants to do? They have a good young team and keeping the shutdown CB around is probably best case. Holding the Texans potent offense to 13 and nearly winning on the road actually makes me slightly more confident in this team. Titans were ran all over (jags too to be fair) and I think the defense gets a key takeaway in this one to get the W.

  • C Smith for the Marlins is a great young pitcher and holds great value at +158. the Dbacks are a great team but the Marlins are capable of stealing a game and this is the spot.

  • I dont trust Snell here coming off of a major elbow injury. Plus he is going up against the Dodgers who are the best team at home this year. Im all over the Dodgers here in this spot as they get a major win

  • CSN Chicago: Bulls player preview: Chandler Hutchison needs to give Bulls wing production

    NBC Sports Chicago will preview a different Bulls player every weekday leading up to the start of training camp in late September.

    How last year went

    Chandler Hutchison didn't have an immediate path to minutes as a rookie, slotted behind both Justin Holiday and Denzel Valentine on the wing heading into training camp. But Valentine suffered an ankle injury that cost him the season, the Bulls' power forward depth was crushed by injury and Justin Holiday was traded in January. That left the door open for Hutchison to average 20.3 minutes per game before a broken toe ended his season in late January.

    Fansided: Boston Celtics: Ainge shutting down Jaylen Brown's comments could spark a fire under the fourth-year pro

    Given Team USA's recent seventh place finish in this Summer's FIBA World Championship games, you'd figure Boston Celtics' fourth-year swingman Jaylen Brown doesn't need any extra motivation heading into the 2019-20 NBA season.

    However, the man potentially responsible for giving the 22-year-old another life-changing contract may have fueled a fire with his most recent comments. In an interview with WBUR's Shira Springer, when discussing Brown's question of whether last season's Celtics were as talented as Beantown's 1986 championship roster, President of Basketball Operations, Danny Ainge, pulled back on the reigns just a tad bit.

    Federal Baseball: Washington Nationals' lineup for tonight's series opener with the St. Louis Cardinals

    Howie Kendrick missed nine games with a hamstring issue between July 31st and August 12th, but going into Sunday's series finale with the Atlanta Braves, the 36-year-old, 14-year veteran was 21 for 53 (.396 AVG) since returning from the Injured List, with a total of seven doubles, two home runs, four walks, and 10 runs scored over 22 games (10 starts) and 58 plate appearances.

    Kendrick also had a .307/.354/.484 line in the 62 games he'd started this season with 16 of 23 doubles and 9 of 14 HRs coming in the games he'd started.

  • Official Site of the Blazers: Bleacher Report Ranks Lillard/McCollum Backcourt Best In The NBA

    With 2019 NBA training camps starting up in two weeks (at least for teams not playing preseason games overseas), the content folks have turned their sights to preseason rankings in order to kill time before there's actual basketball to discuss. One could question the utility of ranking players/teams well before any competitive basketball has been played, as such rankings tend to be educated guesses at best and baseless speculation at worst. But there's also not much else going on, so there's no real harm to it either.

    With that said, Greg Swartz over at Bleacher Report has put together his Top 10 backcourts going into the 2019-20 season, with Trail Blazers duo Damian Lillard and CJ McCollum taking the No.

    Fansided: Philadelphia 76ers: The essential nature of Tobias Harris

    A summer of change has left the Philadelphia 76ers in a vastly different position than a few months ago. Gone are Jimmy Butler and J.J. Redick, the primary engines for halfcourt shot creation in Brett Brown's offense.

    The Sixers will have other shot creation avenues next season -- Josh Richardson in the DHO, Al Horford from a variety of spots, and most importantly, Tobias Harris. After spending last season as a virtual fifth option, Philadelphia unloaded a controversial $180 million extension on Harris. It's only logical to expect a major increase in responsibilities.

    NewsOK.com: Why Shaun Livingston's NBA career mattered

    The numbers say we shouldn't care all that much about Shaun Livingston. But the numbers aren't a complete representation of the truth. Basketball isn't just points -- it has soul, it reveals character and requires sacrifice and perseverance.

    Those are the reasons we, the basketball community, care that Livingston announced his NBA career has ended. Those are the reasons his exit has inspired articles and blog posts from all over the country.

    People care because the worst day of Livingston's pro basketball life -- when his leg was so badly injured that doctors feared amputation -- was so awful.

    St. Louis Post-Dispatch: Ozuna powers Cardinals past Nationals, but it's his throw that steals the show

    With Dakota Hudson nursing a 2-0 lead in the fourth inning, Victor Robles singled with the bases loaded and two out. One run scored but Ozuna, whose throwing arm has been a cause celebre ever since he belatedly had shoulder surgery last offseason, cranked one up. Ozuna one-hopped a peg to catcher Yadier Molina, who stepped back to get a good hop and then made the reception and a swipe tag on Cabrera in the same motion for the final out of the inning.

    "I'm obviously pleased with the homer and two-run double but the throw . .
