There's a whole lot brewin' in the sports world as we slide into the first full weekend of summer, so let's get to it all ...
There's no doubt that many NBA teams drafted the way they did with free agency on their minds - for example, the NBA Draft "host" Brooklyn Nets traded away two different first-round Picks (#17 and #27) in order to clear additional cap space so the franchise could make a major run at both injured F Kevin Durant and PG Kyrie Irving - but if you're just basing a team's success on how they drafted then we gotta say the Atlanta Hawks were the "biggest winners" with Virginia's De'Andre Hunter, Duke's Cam Reddish and second-rounder C Bruno Fernando of Maryland all getting gobbled up by Hot-lanta. Still, the Hawks are + 18000 (based on a $100 play) to win it all next year while the Utah Jazz made the biggest dent in the Odds to Win it All - now at + 4200 - following the pre-draft acquisition of veteran PG Michael Conley ...
Meanwhile, if you happen to be looking ahead at the 2019-2020 NBA Rookie of the Year, then here's two folks not named Zion Williamson (New Orleans) and Ja Morant (Memphis) that could be worth a wager: Phoenix's Cameron Johnson (North Carolina) wasn't even invited to the NBA Draft "green room" and most "experts" claimed he was a major reach but we say his smooth-as-silk shooting skills gets 'em close to 20 ppg and a legit shot to win Rookie of the Year while there should be long odds for Boston draftee F Grant Williams who should be a neat fit into this oft-dysfunctional lineup. Williams has a "mature" game and was a steal for the C's at pick #22. Hey, the NBA Rookie of the Year isn't always the numero uno pick, you know!
Sunday Baseball Menu
There are so many live underdogs on the Sunday Baseball schedule I would be derelict in my duty if I did not release one with a ‘dog that has a 90% chance to win. As most of you know, winning with underdogs, is a proven specialty of mine.
We have a single game on the Sunday schedule in which one of the most under-rated pitchers in baseball is the underdog and I feel so strongly about his heretofore hidden ability that I am releasing his team as another 25-unit underdog winner.
You can win this contest for just $15, charged to your major credit card or to Pay Pal
