Do Super Bowl betting odds suggest that Aaron Rodgers is heading to the Broncos?

By xa1
  • NFL Broncos Packers American Football The Broncos didn't select a quarterback during the 2021 NFL Draft. Despite being on the clock at No. 9 with Justin Fields and Mac Jones on the board, the team opted to go with cornerback Patrick Surtain II with its first selection. After that, the team chose not to add another quarterback to the fray, ensuring that either Drew Lock or the newly acquired Teddy Bridgewater would be the starter during the '21 season.So, why would the Broncos' Super Bowl betting odds improve so much in the wake of the draft without the team making a massive upgrade at the quarterback spot? According to The Denver Post, the Broncos went from having the 24th-best odds to win the Super Bowl at +6,600 (a $100 bet nets $6,600) to the ninth-best chance to take home a title at +2,200. Those odds are similar to what some other books have move夜网论坛d their Broncos odds to as well.William Hill: +2,000FanDuel: +2,400DraftKings: +2,500Though the Broncos did have a strong draft class, that alone would not improve their odds to win a title by that much. That's the type of move that is usually seen when a team significantly upgrades its quarterback spot. As s[......]

    Nippon Ham Fighters ordered to pay damages to woman hit in face by foul ball

  • Baseball One unlucky fan left a Japanese baseball game with an unexpected souvenir.A woman who was hit in the face by a foul ball at the Sappo夜网论坛ro Dome in 2010 was awarded $350,000 in damages from the Nippon Ham Fighters on Thursday, according to Kyodo News via The Associated Press. MORE: Pedro supports Pete | manager rankings | Orioles bold predictionsThe woman, who is in her 30s, lost sight in her right eye after being struck by the ball. Kyodo News reported Sapporo district court judge Yasuhiro Hasegawa ruled in the woman's favor, though the Fighters are contemplating an appeal on the basis that there are a number of safeguards to protect the attending fans.Similar lawsuits haven't gained much traction in the U.S., where Major League Baseball routinely warns fans that they are assuming the risk of injury from balls and bats that might enter the stands.Still, such law suits aren't universally dismissed, either. Last year, a Georgia appeals court declined to dismiss a lawsuit against the Braves filed by the family of a 6-year-old girl whose skull was fractured in 30 places when she was hit in the forehead by a foul ball.[......]

    NLCS Game 6: Must-see story lines with Dodgers-Cardinals series on the line

    By xa1
  • Here's a radical idea. Let's stop talking about this insane, blown-way-out-of-proportion nonsense about the St. Louis Cardinals way (painted as stodgy guardians) vs. the Los Angeles Dodgers way (painted as the fun-loving, devil-may-care team).Both caricatures are only loosely rooted in truth. And this garbage about some vast gap between the fans in St. Louis and the fans in Los Angeles? Baloney. This is true lowest common denominator stuff here, folks. Tonight is Game 6. Tonight, we're going to be treated to an incredible pitching matchup between L.A. ace Clayton Kershaw, who has a 0.47 ERA in the playoffs, and St. Louis rookie Michael Wacha, who has a 0.64 ERA in October.MORE: First pitch 8:37 ET | Mouse ears issue | ALCS goes to Game 6 Isn't that enough? It definitely should be, but here are six other legitimate storylines for Game 6 tonight at Busch Stadium.1. What will the Dodgers get out of their banged-up stars? Hanley Ramirez is hampered by the rib injury from being drilled by a Joe Kelly fastball in Game 1, and Andre Ethier's ankle isn't 100 percent. Ethier is hitting .176 in the series and his range in center field is painfully limited.If Ramirez, especially, has been significantly helped by the day off, health-wise, that's a huge boost for the Dodgers. He hit .345 in the regular season and .500 in the NLDS against the Braves — with six extra-base hits and six RBIs in those four games — but is batting .167 with a pair of singles against the Cardinals.2.

    By xa1
  • Just in time for opening day, the toilets at the Oakland Athletics' home field are raising a stink once again.Rain this weekend in Oakland caused plumbing at to overflow, spreading wastewater in restrooms and coaches' offices. Workers were mopping and sopping up the mess Saturday. The A's play their first game of the 2014 season on Monday at O.co Coliseum, a dated facility that is not among the best in baseball."We didn't even make to opening day," a player told Susan Slusser, the A's beat writer for the San Francisco Chronicl夜网论坛e. "Gives you something to tweet about today at least," a worker told her.While social media helped spread word of the mess, A's coach Mike Gallago posted video as effluent flowed from shower drains and porcelain thrones.It is not a unique situation. Drains flooded before, including last September. That was reportedly the third time it happened during the 2013 season.After a June 2013 mess, A's pitcher A.J. Griffin told The Associated Press: ''Make sure everybody finds out about this sewage thing. We need to get a new stadium.''No question.By the way, Slusser also noted the forecast doesn't look good for Monday's game.[......]
