Both teams have several problematic injuries in the trenches, but I don't see either getting an edge as a result. Hurts has been impressive in his first year as a full-time NFL starter. However, the Eagles don't have enough firepower to match the Cowboys' explosive offense. Dallas currently features the league's fourth-ranked offense. Dak Prescott may not be 100 percent his old self, but that hasn't stopped him from throwing for 640 yards in his first two games. The Cowboys have a new weapon in Tony Pollard to go along with Ezekiel Elliott and their exciting trio of wide receivers. It's difficult to see Philadelphia keeping pace. I like the Boy's to make it two in a row here but want no part of this hook, so taking Dallas -3 (-120). BOL!
Mike Foltynewicz had a terrible outing on Sunday, allowing 10 runs over just 1.2 innings of work. He allowed eight hits and two walks in the process and did not record any strikeouts. Foltynewicz was hit with the loss and is now 2-9 with a 5.91 ERA.
On the other side, Detroit’s Tyler Alexander allowed two runs over 3 1/3 innings in a 5-4 win over the Twins in Game 2 of a doubleheader on Saturday. The lefty has a 1-1 record, 4.40 ERA.
Pick: It's hard to consider Texas right now, the Rangers have one of the worst offenses in MLB and Foltyneewicz got rocked in his last start. These odds here feel about right but I'll side with Detroit -135.
Let's get back that Derby cheese. Damn you Bob Baffert!
The Wizards routed Dallas in their last meeting but that was without Beal. Beal is back in the lineup and with I think him and Westbrook tear up the Mavsâ€™ defense, who are likely without Kleber and Porzingis.
The Mavericks are quietly playing impressive basketball and they're as healthy as they've been all season with the return of Porzingis. The Mavs have the offense and the outside shooting to give this Bucks defense some issues, and they've won the last two meetings against the Bucks. Love getting 6 points in a game they could win out right.
The Bears have lost six games in a row, with three of those losses coming by at least seven points. Houston gets some helped at WR with return of Keke Coutee today and Khalil Mack is questionable for Chicago today.
The Bears simply arenâ€™t a very good team. The defense is descent but could be w/o Khalil Mack today and their offense is one of the worst in the NFL due to poor quarterback play. The Texans may be lacking weapons for QB Deshaun Watson, but he has proven in the past he can overcome an underwhelming supporting cast.
KU has played Texas close last couple years but with Tom Herman on shaky ground and the disparity in talent, I like the Horns to roll this weekend. This game is a simple one to call as itâ€™s Texasâ€™ for the taking, itâ€™s up to Tom Herman to decide how long he wants to keep his foot on the gas. Score prediction: Texas 55, Kansas 13
West Virginia is a good football team this year, 14 point loss to Ok State and they played closer than score indicates and beat Baylor last week. Texas Tech suffering at QG play with Webb out and Colombi running show. Close game but I like Mountaineers in the end, 37-27.
