    Saturday’s List of 13: Clearing out a cluttered mind……..

    13) Rashard Davis returned punts for the Eagles Thursday night; the free agent from James Madison was signed earlier this week.

    Last Saturday, while the chaos in Charlottesville was going on, Davis was working as a waiter in a restaurant in Charlottesville near the park where the mayhem with the statue of Robert E Lee occurred. He was hiding from his boss in the restaurant as he took calls from his agent updating him on the Eagles’ deal.

    One day you’re a waiter, the next day you’re playing ball on national TV. Pretty cool.

    12) Something to think about when college football kicks off next weekend; only one of the last 19 national champs lost a non-conference game, Ohio State in 2014 (to Virginia Tech).

    11) There were 345 replay reviews in the NFL last year, the fewest since 2009, and 70 less than in 2015.

    10) 130 free agents changed teams in the NFL this offseason, also the fewest since 2009.

    9) Bill Belichick’s coaching record: 263-125
    Tom Brady won-loss record: 208-61
    Belichick’s record without Brady: 55-64

    8) Baltimore Ravens play in London in Week 3, but they don’t have the usual bye the next week- they host their rival, the Steelers. Ravens don’t have their bye until Week 10.

    7) Penn State gave coach James Franklin a 6-year contract extension, worth $34.3M. Franklin is 25-15 at PSU, 14-11 in league games, 1-2 in bowl games; Nittany Lions were 11-3 last year.

    6) Jacksonville kicker Jason Myers struggled in Thursday night’s loss to Tampa Bay, now they’re bringing in Dan Carpenter to compete with Myers. Maybe it is contagious; Jacksonville lost to the Buccaneers Thursday, who just fired their kicker last weekend.

    5) Le’Veon Bell’s agent had an agreement with the Steelers on a contract back in mid-July, but Bell nixed the deal at the last minute. Not sure if that was a great move by him.

    4) Arizona football coach Rich Rodriguez is being sued by his old agents for $230,250; he fired them a couple of years ago, but they say he didn’t pay them enough. Rodriguez agreed to pay them 10% of the money he made from CBS Sports Network, 4% of his money from Arizona.

    Rodriguez is a good dude; I have no idea about this lawsuit, but when he left CBS to coach at Arizona, the crew at CBS left his chair empty for their first show without him, thats how much they thought of him.

    3) During the Blue Jays-Cubs game Friday, the Cubs’ roving reporter interviewed hockey star Patrick Sharp, who was sitting in the stands. Sharp grew up rooting for the Jays, but he tried to be political saying which team he was rooting for.

    2) Not the best week to be a statue, eh? Except for the home run sculpture in Miami, which Dade County says can’t be taken out of Marlins Park.

    1) Some good news for Marlins’ fans; David Samson is out as team president. This is a guy who was president of a baseball team who went on Survivor during baseball season— he was the first person voted out on Survivor.

    At one point, he was Marlins owner Jeffrey Loria’s stepson. Now the Marlins are rid of Loria and Samson, and they’re much better off.

    Saturday's Best Bet
    August 18, 2017


    Saturday NFL Preseason Best Bet
    L.A Rams vs. Oakland Raiders (10:00 p.m. ET)

    The Rams and Raiders both had inauspicious starts to their 2017 season last week, but L.A at least was able to get a SU win, whereas the Raiders fell 20-10 in Arizona.

    That was a tough spot to back the Raiders (although the majority of bettors did) as it was actually the second preseason game for the Cardinals and they gave their starters a bit more time because of it.

    This week, Oakland and L.A should give their first-teamers about a full quarter of action (if not more), and given that Oakland has become the most popular Super Bowl futures bet out there – there odds have gone from about 20-1 to now 6-1 – NFL bettors should expect the Raiders to get plenty of love both this week and next in the preseason.

    BetDSI.eu Odds: L.A Rams (+3) vs. Oakland (-3); Total set at 40

    There are plenty of folks that have high expectations for the Oakland Raiders in 2017, but it's important to not project those thoughts too heavily on their preseason games. The preseason is all about getting some work in and staying healthy, and while the starters on Oakland should see some solid action in this game, that doesn't always equate to an easy SU or ATS victory.

    Remember the Rams starters will be on the field for a similar amount of time, and with L.A being the organization that probably needs more work from top to bottom in terms of their roster depth, it could be the Rams who have more motivation to do well in a game like this.

    So rather than attack the side in this contest, I'm looking at the total for my best bet here.

    A total of 40 may seem a touch high for a 2nd preseason game between two teams that put up 13 and 10 points respectively in Week 1, but I would beg to differ.

    Oddsmakers know that Weeks 2 and 3 of the preseason are the ones that more closely resemble actual regular season NFL lines (Week 3 especially), and more time on the field for the starters and 2nd string guys gives them ample opportunity to find a rhythm.

    When a starting QB (one quarter) and a backup QB (two quarters) get the bulk of the playing time in a game like this, points will be scored, especially since they've all had another week of practice under their belts.

    From Oakland's perspective, this will be the first time many of their starters see the field after they were held out in Week 1. With limited time left in preseason play (this week and next), those guys will look to squish in as much quality work as they can, and fans who are all over the Raiders futures bets this year will likely get a taste of what's to come.

    QB Derek Carr has an abundance of weapons around him and while Carr may be one guy who sees the field the least out of the starters as he's coming off a broken leg, those weapons will still be there for backups E.J Manuel and Connor Cook to use against a Rams defense that's still a way's away from being considered one of the league's best, no matter if it's the starters or backups on the field.

    From L.A's perspective, getting a 13-10 win last week was nice, but the coaching staff would still like to see what they've got in terms of offensive weapons from a depth point of view. L.A recently brought in WR Sammy Watkins via trade so he's likely to get a few snaps, and the growth process of QB Jared Goff is still in it's early stages.

    Testing themselves and connecting on some big plays against a team like Oakland – who everyone expects to do big things this year – would be a great boost of confidence to this Rams organization entering the year. Whether it turns into another preseason win or not only really matters to bettors, but expect L.A to not be shy about taking some shots early on and seeing if they can go toe-to-toe with a talented team like the Raiders.

    So while the majority of bettors, at least according to VegasInsider.com's betting percentage numbers, are flocking to this 'under' after both sides had lackluster Week 1 performances, I've got no problem going against the masses here and expecting to see some points.

    Both sides will be looking to get their offensive game in check after tough Week 1's, and for a team that's got realistic championship hopes like Oakland, even tackling on defense may become somewhat “optional” because a key injury there would be just as bad for their long-term prospects in 2017.

    Odds per - BetDSI.eu

    Best Bet: Over 40 points

      NFL notebook: Patriots rookie DE Rivers injures knee
      August 18, 2017


      New England Patriots defensive end Derek Rivers' rookie season may be over due to a knee injury.

      The Patriots fear they have lost their top pick (third round, 83rd overall) in the 2017 NFL Draft out of Youngstown State for the entire season, league sources told ESPN on Friday.

      Rivers, 23, was injured on a kickoff coverage drill Wednesday in a joint practice in White Sulphur Springs, W.Va., with the Houston Texans.

      Before the Patriots traveled to Houston for a preseason game Saturday night, the team sent Rivers back to Boston for more tests. Those tests reinforced the team's initial fear of a season-ending knee injury, according to ESPN.

      --The Jacksonville Jaguars' starting quarterback job is now open for competition after Blake Bortles' second consecutive mediocre preseason outing.

      Head coach Doug Marrone told reporters after the Jaguars' 12-8 loss to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers at EverBank Field on Thursday night that Bortles and Chad Henne will share first-team reps before making a decision for the Sept. 10 season opener against the Houston Texans.

      "I'm looking for someone that's going to lead this offense," a frustrated Marrone said after the game. "I'm not happy with the performance today. I'm not going to sit here and B.S. anyone. Everyone saw it out there. Whatever you want to call it, I'm still trying to evaluate who the best person is at that position."

      The 25-year-old Bortles, the third overall pick in 2014 and the Jaguars' starter since Week 4 of his rookie season, was ineffective in his four series in the first half against the Bucs, all of which ended in punts. He completed 8 of 13 passes for 65 yards and was sacked once. The Jaguars only crossed midfield one time while Bortles was in the game. He has completed 11 of 18 passes for 81 yards with no touchdowns and no interceptions in two preseason games.

      --The Baltimore Ravens signed center Jeremy Zuttah to a two-year deal after he was released by the San Francisco 49ers.

      Zuttah's deal is worth nearly $4 million in base salary, with a maximum of $6 million in incentives, a source told NFL Network's Ian Rapoport.

      Zuttah started three years in Baltimore (2014-16) before being traded to San Francisco in March. The Ravens originally acquired Zuttah in March 2014 from the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in exchange for a fifth-round pick.

      To make room, the Ravens waived/injured wide receiver Kenny Bell, who injured a hamstring earlier this month. Bell, a fifth-round draft choice of Tampa Bay in 2015, spent his first season on the injured reserve list and then was released by the Buccaneers just before the 2016 season.

      --The Arizona Cardinals signed linebacker Ryan Langford and waived wide receiver Marquis Bundy.

      The 6-foot-4, 235-pound Langford was with the Houston Texans during training camp and the preseason in 2016 after signing as an undrafted rookie free agent out of New Mexico.

      Langford, 24, played his final two collegiate seasons at New Mexico (2014-15) after beginning his career at Iowa Western. He played in 13 games as a senior at New Mexico in 2015, recording 53 tackles, 7.5 tackles for loss, two sacks, three passes defensed and an interception.

      Bundy signed with the Cardinals as an undrafted free agent last year and spent most of the season on the practice squad. He was on the active roster for six games but did not play. In two preseason games this year, Bundy made five catches for 73 yards.

      --The Indianapolis Colts signed free agent guard Terran Vaughn and waived/injured outside linebacker Deiontrez Mount.

      If Mount clears waivers, he will revert to the Colts' injured reserve list. He suffered a hamstring injury in Sunday's preseason opener against the Detroit Lions.

      The 6-foot-3, 306-pound Vaughn spent time on the Buffalo Bills' practice squad in 2016. He previously participated in the Oakland Raiders' 2016 offseason program and training after being signed as an undrafted free agent out of Stephen F. Austin.

      The 6-5, 253-pound Mount spent time on the Colts' active roster and practice squad last season. He played in five career games, recording one interception and one pass defensed with the Colts (2016) and Tennessee Titans (2015).

      --The Washington Redskins waived wide receiver Kendal Thompson from injured reserve with an injury settlement, the team announced.

      Thompson has been unable to practice due to a leg injury.

      Thompson signed with the Redskins as an undrafted free agent out of Utah in May 2016. He was waived prior to the start of last season and was signed to the team's practice squad.

      Washington brought him back on a future/reserve contract in January.

        Jacksonville Outlook
        August 18, 2017

        Maybe You Should Bet On The Jacksonville Jaguars


        Jaguars head coach Doug Marrone has put the Jaguars quarterback position up for grabs. That’s right, folks. The Blake Bortles might actually be coming to an end. “It’s right up there for grabs, and either person can take it,” Marone said after their preseason disaster against Tampa Bay.

        The other person in this conversation is Chad Henne, the former Michigan standout, all-round great guy and solid backup quarterback option. Henne was a second-round pick back in 2008 and has started in three seasons as the main man under center. But everyone who knows anything about Henne will tell you that he’s a stop-gap to your next quarterback.

        Though not a terrible option, the fact that Henne is pushing to regain the starting role he lost to Blake Bortles in 2014 is very telling and this is a huge year for Jacksonville overall. They are laughably distant in an otherwise tight AFC South, with +600 odds to win the division in the NFL futures market at BetOnline.ag.

        One of the reasons that the mark on the Jaguars isn’t astronomical is that they’re actually pretty good outside of the quarterback position. Allen Robinson is a Pro-Bowl talent, Leonard Fournette is behind one of the better offensive lines in the league and the defence has some solid parts to it. The time to fix the quarterback has arrived with Tom Coughlin leading the charge as the team’s vice-president.

        Before we announce Bortles as dead on arrival, let’s look at some positives. Bortles did champion a solid 2015 campaign where he threw for 4,428 yards and 35 touchdowns against 18 interceptions. He notched an 88.2 rating as a quarterback as well, which is all pretty good. Plus he’s pretty much played in every single game over the last three years since being selected third overall in the 2014 NFL Draft. So that’s good! He didn’t get hurt too much!

        Unfortunately, it’s hard to think about Bortles without canvassing his 2016 season where he took several, horrifying steps backwards in terms of development. The yards went down, touchdowns decreased and the interceptions basically stayed the same with a 3,905 / 23 / 16 slash line that had Jaguars fans wanting.

        Blake Bortles isn’t going to be cracking the long list of MPV candidates at BetOnline.ag anytime soon with numbers like that, especially when you realize that his 78.8 rating was the third-worst of any full time starter.

        This is probably the time when Colin Kaepernick’s name comes up yet again and that’s an always-interesting angle, because if you look at the Jaguars, they’re a lot better than you might think. BetOnline.ag has given them a Regular Season Win Totally of 7.0 wins, with the UNDER favored at -130 against an OVER of +110.

        Grading the NFL futures is all about value, and if Bortles responds to the pressure by reincarnating his 2015 self, or Kaepernick arrives in northern Florida, then there’s a chance that the Jaguars will have some tertiary worth to the smart bettor.

        It’s a developing story that needs a bit of consideration on your part because the Jaguars can be a great spoiler bet in the regular season as well given the parts that they have surrounding the big question mark at quarterback.

                          Seahawks LT Fant needs ACL surgery
                          August 19, 2017


                          Seattle Seahawks starting left tackle George Fant, who was carted off the field during Friday night's preseason game against the Minnesota Vikings, needs surgery after tearing his ACL.

                          Seahawks coach Pete Carroll confirmed after the game that Fant likely will miss the 2017 season because of the right knee injury suffered in the second quarter.

                          "Really broken-hearted about George Fant getting hurt," Carroll said after Seattle's 20-13 win. "Just unfortunate. He's done so much, come so far and everybody's cheering for him and rooting for him all along. He's going to be in trouble getting back this season. He's got a knee injury that's going to require surgery, unfortunately. Kinda takes a little something out of it for everybody."

                          Fant, 25, went down at the end of a passing play when center Justin Britt fell and rolled into the back of Fant's leg. He was carted off the field with an air cast on his right leg.

                          A former college basketball player out of Western Kentucky, the 6-foot-5, 322-pound Fant signed with the Seahawks as an undrafted rookie free agent last year and played in 14 games with 10 starts at left tackle.

                          Fant worked hard during the offseason, putting on about 25 pounds heading into his second NFL year.

                          "We talked about the great year that he had this offseason and that it's going to take that same kind of application of his fight and his competitiveness and his spirit to work his way back through this," Carroll told reporters Friday night. "And in that he felt very confident that he would do exactly that. He's going to take the same approach that he took to this offseason and he's going to get back, and when he gets back he's going to be a really good football player."

                          Fant was injured on a play when quarterback Russell Wilson completed a 9-yard slant pass to tight end Marcus Lucas.

                          "I talked to George in the training room about him just being upbeat and continuing to learn everything he can learn even though he is going to be out for a bit here," Wilson said. "We don't know exactly what is going on but he wants to continue to learn the game and that is key.

                            August 19, 2017


                            BASEBALL


                            BOSTON (AP) Nineteen batters. Six pitchers. One hour, 5 minutes. Eight runs. Two lead changes.

                            And when the seventh inning was over, the Boston Red Sox were back in front and on their way to a 9-6 victory over New York and a five-game lead over the rival Yankees in the AL East.

                            Addison Reed and fellow Red Sox reliever Joe Kelly retired presumptive AL rookie of the year Aaron Judge with the bases loaded in back-to-back innings, and pinch-hitter Mitch Moreland delivered a two-run single to rally Boston to its 13th victory in 15 games.

                            The Yankees snapped a four-game winning streak, blowing a 6-3 lead after rallying from a 3-0 deficit.

                            NEW YORK (AP) - The Los Angeles Dodgers acquired outfielder Curtis Granderson and cash from the New York Mets for a player to be named later or cash.

                            The teams announced the deal after their games. The 36-year-old Granderson is hitting .228 with 19 home runs and 52 RBIs this year.

                            Los Angeles is running away with the NL West. The Dodgers are 86-34 after beating Detroit. Granderson gives Los Angeles another option for the outfield along with Cody Bellinger, Yasiel Puig, Chris Taylor and Joc Pederson.

                            This is Granderson's fourth team as he started with Tigers then went to Yankees. He signed a $60 million, four-year contract with the Mets before the 2014 season. He hit 95 home runs - including a grand slam in his final at-bat - for the Mets in 573 games and was part of the team that won the National League pennant in 2015.

                            BALTIMORE (AP) - Manny Machado capped a three-homer night with a grand slam in the bottom of the ninth inning, and the Baltimore Orioles rallied past the Los Angeles Angels 9-7 in a game that featured 10 home runs.

                            Machado hit his seventh career slam off Keynan Middleton (4-1), who entered with two on and one out in the ninth. After Tim Beckham singled to load the bases, Machado hit a drive far over the center-field wall to give the Orioles their first lead.

                            Machado also hit a two-run homer in the third and a solo shot in the fifth to finish with seven RBIs.

                            SEATTLE (AP) - Russell Wilson looked just fine throwing for 206 yards and two touchdowns in the first half, and the Seattle Seahawks suffered a significant injury to left tackle George Fant in their 20-13 victory over the Minnesota Vikings.

                            Wilson picked apart a Vikings secondary that played without starting cornerback Trey Waynes and safety Andrew Sedenjo, completing 13 of 18 passes. He hit Kasen Williams on a 1-yard touchdown pass and found Mike Davis on a 22-yard catch-and-run TD late in the first half.

                            But the Seahawks have lost Fant likely for the season with a torn ACL in his right knee, throwing the offensive line into flux with two weeks remaining in the preseason.

                            SEATTLE (AP) - Michael Bennett was alone in sitting. He wasn't alone in support from his teammates.

                            Bennett sat on the Seahawks' bench before their preseason game against Minnesota, the second straight week he remained seated while the ''Star-Spangled Banner'' was played.

                            Bennett was the only Seattle player on the bench, but he was joined by two teammates standing with him. Center Justin Britt stood alongside with his hand on Bennett's shoulder. Defensive back Jeremy Lane also stood next to Bennett. Lane sat for the national anthem during one preseason game last year.

                            BRISTOL, Tenn. (AP) - Kyle Busch continued his domination at Bristol Motor Speedway with a victory in the Xfinity Series race.

                            The win was the 19th national series victory at Bristol for Busch, who also won the Truck Series race Wednesday night. And just like that win, Busch had to overcome a speeding penalty on pit road to get to victory lane.

                            Busch won the first stage of the race and was then popped for speeding. He drove from 29th in line to the lead in 58 laps after the penalty, and won the second stage. Busch then drove away to an easy 91st career win in the Xfinity Series, and he's said he will stop racing in the series once he hits 100 victories.

                            WEST DES MOINES, Iowa (AP) - The favored Americans found themselves trailing Europe after a sluggish start to the Solheim Cup.

                            The U.S. then settled down and pulled away with a record-setting fourball performance.

                            The United States swept the afternoon fourball matches to take a 5 1/2-2 1/2 lead at Des Moines Golf and Country Club.

                            Lizette Salas and U.S. newcomer Danielle Kang each won two matches, teaming to beat Carlota Ciganda and Caroline Masson 1 up for the Americans' lone full point in the morning foursomes, then leading the U.S. to its first ever fourball sweep in the afternoon.

                            GREENSBORO, N.C. (AP) - Ryan Armour shot a career-best 9-under 61 for a share of the lead with Webb Simpson after two rounds at the Wyndham Championship.

                            Armour and Simpson were at 13-under 127 halfway through the PGA Tour's final event of the regular season. Simpson shot a 64.

                            Henrik Stenson was a stroke behind them after a 66. Ollie Schniederjans and Vaughn Taylor and were 11. Schniederjans shot 63, Taylor had a 66.

                            First-round leader Matt Every followed his 61 with a 72 to slip six strokes off the lead.

                            MASON, Ohio (AP) - Defending champion Karolina Pliskova pulled off a doubleheader sweep at the Western & Southern Open, reaching the semifinals by winning a pair of matches with little rest in-between. Rafael Nadal got only halfway there.

                            Pliskova completed a match that was suspended overnight because of rain, beating qualifier Camila Giorgi in three sets. After a quick turnaround, she needed only 1 hour, 7 minutes to beat a rested Caroline Wozniacki 6-2, 6-4 for a sweep into the semis.

                            Nadal spent 1:37 on court in the afternoon while beating fellow Spaniard Albert Ramos-Vinolas in a match carried over from the previous night. Five hours later, he was back on court against Nick Kyrgios, who had won a three-set match earlier in the day.

                            Nadal was sloppy at the outset and on the defensive for much of a 6-2, 7-5 loss that lasted 1:20.

                            Despite the loss, Nadal will move back to No. 1 in the ATP rankings next week for the first time since
