HEADLINES

-Ronda Rousey returns to the octagon for UFC 207 versus Amanda Nunes. She opens as -205 favorite.

Liked Justin Hartling’s stat : Nunes rarely goes to decision either, as she has gone the distance just twice in her 17 pro fights.  Full write up here.

-Last week, I said I thought the Blue Jays presented the biggest value at +750, given their big bats and that neither the Red Sox or Indians were a runaway favorite. With the Blue Jays now in the ALCS, that value has plummeted to +250 The Cubs as expected are still a runaway favorite. Rob Trites gives his takes on who will take the Fall Classic, as well as show how the lines have moved over the past weeks.

PICKS

Western Kentucky/ Middle Tennessee State OVER 76 

I basically had this game circled all year. These two teams average 30+ a game, they give up a combined 60 a game.  They combine for close to 1000 total yards a game. They give up close to 900 a game. They combine for  650+ passing yards a game, they give up close to 600  a game through the air. Sense a theme here ?

Both teams play at a blazing pace, sling the hell out of the ball, and don’t play a ton of defense. I love this tempo, and I love their ability to score, score fast, and give up big plays. Settle in the afternoon and enjoy because this one is going to be a points fest. 49-45 type of stuff.

Even is Mike Francesa disagrees

-Shoutout to Hank who’s been on fire this year. Stay grinding Hank.
