Betting on Cowboys is easier than figuring out what the Saints will look like, along with other best bets for Thursday

So baseball will probably look a little different when it comes back from lockdown. It’s safe to assume the pitchers’ hitting days are over. MLB already holds DH General as a cookie for these negotiations and will use it. We’ll also likely see a larger post-season MLB with more teams as the knockouts are where the money in the league’s televised deals is.

It’s good now. I’m not particularly excited about having multiple teams make it to the knockout stages, but it’s by no means a deal breaker. However, one change that I really want to see and have wanted to see for years is one that is unlikely to happen.

Exit the tournament. The only reason the American and National Leagues still exist is the DH law. There is no need for separate leagues if DH is gone, so get rid of them and rearrange the sport. Not like NFL and NBA, baseball is not a national sport that fans care about all teams and players. They care about of them team and of them local rivals. So play there. Redesign the league by geography. See how successful interplay is when New York teams play meaningful games, and the same goes for Chicago, Los Angeles and the Bay Area.

Make that the norm! The Yankees and Mets should fight for a championship, just like the Cubs and White Sox should! It will make the regular season a lot more enjoyable for everyone involved, resulting in more money for everyone.

Baseball can’t lock us out of these choices, so let’s get to them.

🏈 Cowboys in Saints, 8:20 pm | TV: FOX
Choice of: Over 26.5 Cowboys (-115)
: This game is not easy to read. The saints will not have Alvin Kamara again and Taysom Hill is starting at QB. There wouldn’t be much history of New Orleans without Kamara and Hill to work with and get an idea of ​​what would happen. I spent a long time trying to figure it out myself before I had an idea.

What happens if we don’t? What if we ignored the insults of the Saints and focused instead on what we do know?

So that’s what I did, and it all led to the Cowboys ending. Dallas has one of the deadliest offenses in the NFL. In the game started by Dak PrescottThe Cowboys are averaging 2.43 points per possession with a success rate of 45.1%. Those numbers would rank 9th and 5th in the NFL respectively (they rank 10th and 7th overall). And the Cowboys did all this despite facing injuries all year. Well, tonight is the first time the Cowboys have had a full complement of players on the field at once, and they will all be up against a Saints defense that hasn’t been doing well lately.

While focusing on offensive injuries, New Orleans is also on the defensive. The Saints ranked 10th in points allowed per possession during the season but in November they ranked 27th, allowing 2.48 points per drive.

Ultimately, Mike McCarthy will miss this game after testing positive for COVID, and I don’t think that’s a bad thing for Dallas offense! Kellen Moore might feel a little more free to call plays tonight than he would if McCarthy were there.

Main trend: The Saints have dropped at least 27 points in four of their last five games.

Here’s what SportsLine is saying about the game: SportsLine’s Emory Hunt is 30-20-1 ATS in Dallas Cowboys-related picks and he has a play available for tonight.

Bucks at the Raptors, 7:30 p.m. | TV: NBA League Pass

Latest rate:

Over 216

Select: Over 216 (-110) – I know we’ve secured our retirement by betting under the NBA this season, but the best value I could find in the Association tonight is above in this total. It’s just a bit too low compared to my estimate. While neither team has had outstanding offensive behavior this season, the Bucks are 10th in the league in defensive ratings and Toronto is not far behind at 13th. More important to the interests of the team. We are the playing speed of the Bucks: Friday. Now, Toronto is falling to 28th, but with Milwaukee being the better team, it will determine the pace.

Considering the Raptors are ranked 24th in the NBA in defensive ratings, it’s hard to imagine they’ll be able to dictate anything. Milwaukee’s defense is much better than Toronto’s, but it’s not great either. The Bucks are ranked 11th in defensive ratings, and another thing we should adjust is that the Bucks played on Wednesday, beating Charlotte 127-125. I wouldn’t be surprised if that effort took something off Milwaukee’s feet tonight and made the Bucks a little more sensitive defensively. I don’t expect the same kind of blast attack we saw last night, but I think this game ends closer to 220 than 216.

Main trend: The score is more than 6-2 in Toronto’s last 8 matches as the bottom team.

Oregon State in Cal, 10:30 p.m. | TV: Pac-12 . Network

Latest rate:

Oregon Beaver + 2.5

Pick: Oregon State +2.5 (-110) – It’s not a hot match, but these are often the ones where you can find the most value. Cal started 3-4 with wins over San Diego, Southern Utah and Fresno State. None of them appear in KenPom’s top 100 ratings. Oregon State was worse, with a score of 1-6, with the only victory going to Portland State in the opening game. It’s been six straight losses for the Beavs since then, but they’ve played a tougher schedule Bear.

Although Cal’s assessment of defense was strong, it was also somewhat skewed due to the competition. The fact that the Bears are both excellent at protecting glasses is not surprising given their size. However, the State of Oregon is a lot of its own, which should help make up for that a bit. In the end, Oregon State is up just 28.8% over these three seasons. It’s horrible, but the players on this team are better shooters than that number suggests. It will improve and considering how well the opponents have tripled against Cal, it is very likely that the improvement will start tonight.

Main trend: Oregon State won 14-3 ATS in the last 17 road matches.
