As the Playoffs approach, it’s a good time for Hedging your NFL Tickets

Football, especially the way it is played at the professional level, is not a delicate game. Rather, it’s a dose of blunt force trauma in a world that typically goes out of its way to avoid such things.

Maybe that’s why football games are such a spectacle, requiring tens of thousands of people in the stands–and millions more watching on TV–to fully appreciate the struggle taking place on the field.

Fans who are able to pay the high prices for acquiring tickets to an NFL game expect to see their team–generally the home team–win the game. Whether it’s a blowout or a squeaker that comes down to the final play from scrimmage, the home team emerges victorious more often than not in professional football.

MLB Already Got The NBA And NHL Beat

With the All-Star break exactly a week away, MLB is about to take a few days off. Names like Trout and Bryant and Ortiz will give baseball fans a show in San Diego’s Petco Park next week, but the vast majority of MLB’s players get a couple of days to go home, instead. And after at least 82 games already this season, they can use a little relaxation.

Get Ready For Baseball By The Bay This Week

The NBA Finals dealt a traumatic blow to sports fans in the Bay area. The Golden State Warriors amassed the best regular-season record in NBA history, but came up short in their attempt to repeat as NBA champions. Since there’s just one NBA team in the region, it’s fair to say that the loss was felt on both ends of the Bay Bridge.

Red Sox Slugger David Ortiz : Milestones Within Reach.

Boston Red Sox designated hitter David Ortiz has had an illustrious major league career. He has led the Sox to a pair of World Series titles, including an unforgettable win in 2004 that ended Boston’s 86-year championship drought. But with just under four months remaining in his (regular season) MLB career, “Big Papi” still has plenty of milestones to accomplish.

No MLB 2016 April Fools in Chicago

by R. Lincoln Harris

The major league season is often compared to a marathon, and rightly so. No other sports league puts its players through 162 games a season, and they would go broke if they tried. It takes 10 baseball games to equal one football game in terms of overall importance on the regular season. The ratio drops to 2-to-1 for basketball and hockey, but the point is still clear: baseball games are, by far, the most bountiful commodity in professional sports.

Great Start To The 2016 MLB Season

With the first week of the 2016 MLB season in the books, we take a look at some of the notable games, matchups, players, and storylines that are already garnering some attention. Call it serendipity but MLB couldn’t have scheduled a more compelling opening day game than a World Series rematch between the Kansas City Royals and the New York Mets. The energy at Kaufmann Stadium harkened back to last October with tensions carrying over from the 2015 baseball classic. And like last years World Series, Matt Harvey pitched a tightly contested game only to lose 4-3 to Edinson Volquez. Game 2 yielded a similar result as last year with Noah Syndergaard pitching a 6 inning 9 strikeout gem, helping the Mets avoid a sweep with a 2-0 victory.

Even though it’s way too early to draw any conclusions, many of the the teams picked by the experts to contend this year seem to be rearing their heads already. The Detroit Tigers look like they’ve returned to form after missing the postseason last year for the first time in 4 years, trailing the Royals by half a game from the top of the American League Central at 3-1. The most contested division in baseball is back at it again with this year’s World Series favorite Chicago Cubs sitting atop of the National League Central at 5-1. Not to be out done by the Cubs, the Cincinnati Reds, believe it or not, are tied for first place at 5-1. To no one’s surprise the Pittsburgh Pirates are a half a game behind at 4-2. Raising eyebrows is the St. Louis Cardinals 0-3 start, a team that won 100 games last year finished the weekend strong to close out the week 3-3.

If history is any indication of what the future will bare, it’s an even year which means the San Francisco Giants will win another title, and yes the Giants are in first place in the National League West at 5-2. Not too long ago, ie 2014, fans at Oriole Park were treated to October baseball while making it all the way to the ALCS. With Buck Showalter at the helm, many felt the Orioles were establishing themselves as the new king of the hill in the American League East. Needless to say 2015 was extremely disappointing with the Orioles finishing in 3rd place and missing the playoffs with a 81-81 record. Now the team is raising eyebrows once again as the only undefeated team in all of baseball at 5-0 and in first place in the AL East ahead of the Red Sox, Yankees, and Blue Jays respectively.

As we all know baseball is a team sport centered around individual player performances that dominate the headlines. That being said Seattle Mariner second baseman Robinson Cano is off to the hottest start of his career, hitting 4 home runs and 7 rbi in his first 3 games. New York Yankee fans have to be all smiles with the debut of Starlin Castro at shortstop. The Yankees took a calculated gamble signing Castro as a free agent and it seems to be paying dividends with Starlin batting .450 and knocking in 8 rbi helping the Bronx Bombers to a 3-2 start. Shifting gears to the National League West the Colorado Rockies are looking like a potential nightmare to opposing pitchers with DJ LeMahieu batting .478 (3rd in the majors), Trevor Story belting 7 homers in 6 games (1st in the majors and best start ever), and Carlos Gonzalez hitting 3 home runs (tied for 3rd in the majors).

With the season off to an auspicious start, 2016 looks like it will deliver thrills and fanfare from season’s past. This week’s notable game matchups!!!
