Potential playoff preview? Cam & Carson are certainly two of the most exciting to play the quarterback position in this star-studded league. Wentz threw a season-high 3 touchdown passes (26-of-36 for 278 yds & no interceptions) beating the Giants (1-5) for the 4th straight time, & 7th in 8 games. Eagles sacked Eli 4 times, & hit him 13 other times. But the dog is 11-3 ATS in Philly games, while the chalk is 10-5 ATS in Panther tilts (0-2 LA). This should be one of the better games of the season.

Twins starter Kyle Gibson didn’t hit the plate much against the Yankees in his last start, but he can afford to be less nibbly against the Royals’ lineup. In 175 at-bats against Gibson, the Kansas City hitters have a woefully low .349 Slugging Percentage. Keep the ball down and have it pounded into the ground. It’s not 1973-1994, when Kaufman Stadium was AstroTurf and the ground outs would be singles. Meanwhile, no doubt Jake Junis has gradually improved from awful to serviceable as the season has progressed. His ERA has been lowered from 5.03 to 4.28 over the last four-and-a-half weeks and he has gone 9-7-8 innings in his last three starts, without walking a batter.

But replicating that sort of effort against a Toronto side that blasted Pistons by 27 in their last meeting (pre-Griffin) on Jan. 17 might be a tall order for Detroit, which among other things has not made much of a fortress out of its new arena (just 13-18-2 vs. line at home). That recent W vs. the Bucks was also only the third Pistons cover in last 18 vs. line, making some Detroit die hard's wish for the days of Tobias Harris and Avery Bradley.

It’s been like stealing candy from a baby for Toronto against Atlanta this season, and Raps have romped to three DD wins and spread covers at Hawks’ expense. Not sure that changes here, as Atlanta playing for some date down the road (2021? 2022?), with Mike Budenholzer turning over more playing time to young guys; John Collins now in the starting lineup and Isaiah Taylor saw a big minutes bump in February. Meanwhile Toronto looking to solidify its hold as the top seed in the East and had lost SU in just 1 of 10 into last Friday vs. the Wiz. Still, expect Dwane Casey to keep an eye on the defense, as the starting lineup allowed an alarming 115 points per 100 possessions in a recent four-game stretch. That should require some fine tuning and should keep Raps sharp enough to hammer Hawks again.

Davis averaged 35 points and 13 rebounds in February and finished it off with his ninth double-double of the month in a 121-116 win at San Antonio on Wednesday. New Orleans entered play on Saturday a half-game behind four teams tied for the No. 3 spot in the West and overcame double-digit deficits in each of its last three triumphs.

What has happened to the Bills? Just 98 yards & 10 first downs vs the Saints. Ouch! And five of those first downs came on Buffalo's meaningless final drive, when trailing 47-3. You'd never know that the Bills led 3-0 on their first drive, instigated by a 50-yard McCoy run. Strange, because he ended up with 49 rushing yards. Check allowing 6 rushing touchdowns, the most ever in team history. Would you believe that Buffalo has held 5 opponents to 17 points or less? Another brutal loss for the Chargers, with a Rivers pick in OT. Chargers are 11-2 ATS in November off an opponent off a SU loss. Can't back Bills

A few days after becoming the first team since the 2001 Seattle Mariners (40-12) to finish May at least 22 games over .500, Houston (40-16) - six games ahead of the 56-game standard it reached four times prior to this season - moved 24 games over the break-even mark for the first time in 16 years following Saturday's 6-5 victory. The triumph was the Astros' ninth in a row overall and put them on track to tie the team's longest road winning streak since capturing a club-record 10 in a row from May 7-31, 1989. Two-time defending American League West champion Texas trailed the Astros by 5 1/2 games after winning 11 of 12 during the middle of last month but finds itself 14 games off the pace after dropping nine of its last 11. The losing has continued despite three straight two-hit efforts from Adrian Beltre, who is batting .421 and has notched at least one hit in each of the five games he has played since returning from an injury that cost him the team's first 51 contests.

Wiz out on road again tonight, but host Knicks haven’t offered much resistance in three previous meetings, losing them all, with Washington series win and cover streak now at five dating to last season. Not even sure who might be on the floor for New York; we know Derrick Rose (injured) and Joakim Noah (suspension) won’t be available, and not sure about Carmelo Anthony, nursing a sore back entering the week.

It’s fair to ask if Miami’s great uptick might be over, as Heat couldn’t take advantage of a pair of games last week vs.Knicks (who won at AA Arena) and lost again at home on Sunday vs. Denver. Which has left Heat clinging by its fingernails to the East’s last playoff spot entering the week. Recent Miami downturn might be more than a blip, as it has also coincided with absence of Dion Waiters (ankle), whose return date is still unknown. Meanwhile, Charlotte making a late run at a playoff spot in East by winning 7 of last 9 SU prior to last night vs. Wizards. Hornets have scored 114.5 points per 100 possessions over that 9-game ascent, the second best offensive stretch they’ve had in four years under HC Steve Clifford. Kemba Walker (24.2 ppg that stretch) has led the way, but bench contributions from Frank Kaminsky and Marco Belinelli have been critical, and Jeremy Lamb provided a big lift on Sunday vs. his former employer Ok City.

New York still doesn’t have a win streak longer than one game in calendar 2017, and now Joakim Noah’s 20-game suspension only adds to the woes in the first year of a four-year, $72 million contract that was looking ill-advised (to put it mildly) well before the suspension. Miami getting a real gift in its quest to make the playoffs with back-to-back games vs. Knicks. Would dismiss NY’s long-ago win at AA Arena on Dec. 6, back when Knicks were actually trying and before Heat took flight in mid-January. Though Miami had lost 3 of 4 entering the week, shooting only 30% from beyond arc, while Goran Dragic has shot 34 percent overall (with almost as many turnovers as assists) in that stretch. Heat made up for the bad shooting with 25 second-chance points in recent win over Phoenix, but needs to start making shots (and get Dion Waiters back to active duty) as Miami tries to hold onto the eighth and last playoff seed in the East.

The Pacers had better, because their next five games are against teams currently with winning records, and Indiana is only 11-18 SU vs. those sorts this term. Nate McMillan also has bench issues at the moment with Al Jefferson and Rodney Stuckey both hurting.

The Cowboys come into this one riding the coat tails of their two rookies, QB Prescott (who has a record 132 passes with no interceptions), and RB Elliott (who has 140 and 138 rushing yards the L2 weeks). The Cowobys are 3-1 and have 3 straight covers. The Bengals are only 1-4-1 ATS in their L6 games. Now way to go other than with the home team.

Boy, what a show this would have been if RG3 was not hurt, as the brows roll into Washington to take on the Redskins. Washington is coming off a close 2 point road win over the Giants, despite a 457-403 yard deficit. The win last week now has the underdog 9-1 in the last 10 Washington games. In addition, Washington is coming off two division games in a row. Last week Cleveland QB Kessler was 21 of 33 so maybe the Browns might have finally found their quarterback? They just barely lost to Miami as they missed a last minute game winning field goal. Washington QB, Cousins also looks like he got it going last week as he had a 44 and 55 yard touchdown passes in quick fashion. However, I believe that being favored by this high a number is a bit too much to ask them to cover. I'm taking Cleveland!

Boston has taken eight of its last 10 overall and will play a combined 13 games against the Blue Jays and the Baltimore Orioles next month as the three clubs battle it out for AL East supremacy. The Rays dropped out of that AL East race a long time ago.  Boston starter, Price earned a rain-shortened, complete-game victory at Baltimore on Wednesday, limiting the Orioles to one run and four hits in six innings. That makes two straight wins for the former Cy Young Award winner, who appears to be back in top form after struggling through a winless five-start stretch bridging July and August.

Ortiz is 6-for-8 with a pair of home runs in the series and helped Boston to wins in eight of the last nine games, which has kept it within a half-game of the Blue Jays for first place in the AL East. The Tigers are sliding in the opposite direction with losses in 10 of their last 13 contests to fall 3 1/2 back of the Baltimore Orioles for the second AL wild card.
