Unfortunately, on the final weekend of the schedule

Berichtdoor zhangzk » 06 aug 2019, 05:43

This late in the season Zach Brown Jersey , it’s wise to invest only in meaningful games, particularly those in which both teams have something at stake. we don’t find too many of those. Most intriguing is Carolina (No. 7 in AP Pro32) at Atlanta (No. 10, AP Pro32), where there’s plenty on the line. The Panthers own a playoff berth and still can win the NFC South, though they need Tampa Bay to upset New Orleans. Atlanta, which came so close to winning the Super Bowl in February, must win or have Seattle lose to qualify. Although the Panthers appear to be the much better team, they are 3+-point underdogs at Atlanta – the idea being there’s much more desperation for the Falcons. We’ll buy that, though if they were to meet in the playoffs, we’d go the other way. FALCONS, 21-20 KNOCKOUT LEAGUE TIP Kudos to anyone who has gotten to the final week of the season without being knocked out. Certainly that was not the case for Pro Picks, which finishes off the schedule with ATLANTA to play its way into the postseason. No. 6 New Orleans (minus 7 1-2) at No. 28 Tampa Bay Saints won’t stumble this close to an also-ran to penthouse turnaround. BEST BET: SAINTS, 30-16 No. 14 Buffalo (minus 2 1-2) at No. 24 Miami The Bills’ playoff drought continues. UPSET SPECIAL: DOLPHINS Devin Bush Jersey , 17-13 No. 23 Cincinnati (plus 10) at No. 11 Baltimore Ravens’ D could be scary in postseason, which they get into with … RAVENS, 23-14 No. 22 Oakland (plus 7) at No. 13 Los Angeles Chargers From 0-4 to a wild card. Nice rally, Chargers. CHARGERS, 28-19 No. 25 New York Jets (plus 15) at No. 1 New England Patriots secure yet another AFC top seed. PATRIOTS, 31-13 No. 16 Dallas (minus 3) at No. 4 Philadelphia Eagles already have home-field advantage for NFC playoffs. COWBOYS, 26-17 No. 8 Jacksonville (plus 3) at No. 15 Tennessee Jaguars are locked into AFC’s third seed, but they send Titans home. JAGUARS, 24-23 No. 32 Cleveland (plus 10 1-2) at No. 2 (tie) Pittsburgh Wonder if members of the 2008 Lions will applaud Browns’ perfecto. STEELERS, 30-16 No. 9 Kansas City (plus 4) at No. 26 Denver Chiefs are No. 4 seed, want to keep folks healthy. BRONCOS, 17-15 No. 27 Chicago (plus 12) at No. 2 (tie) Minnesota Vikings take No. 2 seed in NFC, set sights on hosting and playing in Super Bowl. VIKINGS, 26-9 No. 20 San Francisco (plus 6) at No. 5 Los Angeles Rams Hey Niners, pay Jimmy G now. Rams resting starters so … 49ERS Diontae Johnson Jersey , 30-17 No. 19 Arizona (plus 7) at No. 12 Seattle Disappointing and injury-plagued season for both teams. SEAHAWKS, 26-13 No. 21 Green Bay (plus 7) at No. 17 Detroit When schedule was made, this looked like NFC North title showdown. Not quite. LIONS, 20-10 No. 18 Washington (minus 3) at No. 31 New York Giants What a mess the Giants have become. REDSKINS, 30-14 No. 29 Houston (plus 1) at No. 30 Indianapolis What a mess the Colts have become. But … COLTS, 17-12 — 2017 RECORD: Last week: Against spread (4-11-1). Straight up (12-4) Season Totals: Against spread (108-113-10). Straight up: (153-85) Best Bet: 9-7 against spread, 10-6 straight up. Upset special: 9-7 against spread, 9-7 straight up —
The Oakland Athletics will go for their season-high fifth win in a row when they open a four-game series against the Chicago White Sox on Thursday night at U.S. Cellular Field in Chicago.

Oakland (38-36) has achieved a four-game winning streak on four occasions this season, including its current stretch, but has yet to make it five. The A’s have outscored opponents 28-15 during this week’s streak, which includes two wins apiece against the Los Angeles Angels and San Diego Padres.

A’s hitters slugged five homers in a 12-4 rout of the Padres on Wednesday. The team already has four players with double-digit blasts, including Khris Davis (20), Matt Olson (15), Jed Lowrie (11) and the injured Matt Chapman (10).

“We definitely have some power,” Oakland manager Bob Melvin said to the A’s official website. “That’s one of the strengths of the team.”

As Oakland is riding a hot streak Justin Layne Jersey , Chicago (24-49) is mired in a seven-game losing streak. A loss in the series opener would give the White Sox their worst skid of the season, which is saying something considering the club’s ugly record.

White Sox manager Rick Renteria’s club is coming off back-to-back sweeps at the hands of the Detroit Tigers and Cleveland Indians. In Wednesday’s series finale, Chicago managed only two hits in a 12-0 loss to the Indians.

“It’s tough, but instead of getting frustrated, we have to keep working, use that feeling to work harder,” White Sox second baseman Yoan Moncada said to the team’s official website. “There are still plenty of games to play, and we can improve. We can keep getting better, and if it is not this year, then next year. But definitely the games we have this year, we have a chance to improve.”

White Sox right-hander Lucas Giolito (4-7, 7.19 ERA) will look to improve in his 15th start of the season. The former first-round pick of the Washington Nationals (No. 16 overall in 2012) has terrific potential but has been unable to produce consistent results in his first full season on the South Side.

Poor command has plagued Giolito, who has 45 walks in 71 1/3 innings. He also has hit 10 batters, which is tied for most in the majors along with Cole Hamels of the Texas Rangers and Carlos Martinez of the St. Louis Cardinals.

This will mark the 23-year-old’s first career appearance against Oakland.

For the A’s, right-hander Chris Bassitt (0-2 Benny Snell Jr. Jersey , 2.45 ERA) will make his third start of the season. The 29-year-old is seeking his first victory since Aug. 4, 2015, against the Baltimore Orioles.

Bassitt is quite familiar with the White Sox, who drafted him in the 16th round in 2011 and developed him in the minors. He went 1-1 with a 3.94 ERA in six appearances (five starts) as a rookie in Chicago in 2014.

On Dec. 9, 2014, the White Sox shipped Bassitt, Marcus Semien, Josh Phegley and minor leaguer Rangel Ravelo to Oakland in exchange for Jeff Samardzija and Michael Ynoa. The trade did not pan out as hoped for Chicago, which retained Samardzija for one underwhelming season before he signed as a free agent with the San Francisco Giants.

Bassitt has faced the White Sox once in his career. That was in 2016, when he gave up eight hits and four runs in 5 1/3 innings, but did not get a decision in Chicago’s 5-4 victory.

This will be the first meeting of the season between the teams. Last year, Oakland won the season series 5-1.
