Michigan vs Wisconsin
Wisconsin at The Line (+8.5 Points) @ $1.91
The Wolverines have serious championship aspirations, but f they overlook the Badgers this weekend, all of their success could mean nothing. This game should be very close, especially with Michigan currently playing the best defence in College Football. Wisconsin have covered the spread in 18 of their last 20 games though, making them a nice play at the line today.
Boston Red Sox vs Houston Astros
Astros To Win @ $2.00
It’s a fascinating pitching match up to start Game 1, and it’s hard to look past the Astros with Justin Verlander on the mound. The Cy Young favourite has been killer against Houston throughout his career, limiting the current lineup to just 13 hits and a pair of earned runs. He’s also been dynamite on the road this season with a 2.14 ERA to his name, which should stifle Boston’s bats.
Everton vs Crystal Palace
Draw @ $3.40
The odds have Everton as the clear and away favourites, however recent history shows there hasn’t been much separating these two teams. In their last five meetings, three have finished a draw, and with just two wins in their last six games, it’s not like the Toffees are in great form. Crystal Palace, meanwhile, find themselves in a similar position, and with goals proving hot/cold for both sides lately, this shapes up as a bit of a stalemate.
