SEC Predictions and Previews: The Auburn Tigers Will Win

SEC Predictions and Betting Odds @Sportsbook: Everyone knows that betting isn’t betting unless someone steps to the plate with a bold prediction. Here’s one for you: the Auburn Tigers will win the SEC. Let that one sink in for a minute.
Sportsbook Online

Yes, those Auburn Tigers. The same Tigers who are in a division as the reigning, BCS National Champions – and the team that is likely to be the preseason No. 1 – Alabama Crimson Tide. They are also in the same division as the Arkansas Razorbacks, who are supposed sexy sleeper and the LSU Tigers, who are always hanging around near the front of the pack.

So why Auburn?

Last season, Auburn opened some eyes when they started the year 5-0. Sportsbook odds makers were quickly forced to adjust on their total as the Auburn offense that was stuck in the mud under Tommy Tuberville all of the sudden was lighting up the scoreboard.

2010 News: Tiger Woods facing most Important Tournament ever

Golf Betting2010 News: Tiger Woods facing most Important Tournament ever: This week, at this course, Tiger is expected to win. He's the odds-on favorite. He's the top-ranked golfer in the world. He has won two of his three Opens here. He thinks his way around the course better than anyone. He avoids the nasty trouble better than anyone. He just seems like he has an advantage here that nobody else has. Tiger woods winning odds and picks at golf betting.

You see, it isn't like Tiger can't win majors coming up, but it would mean that Tiger has gone a lengthy stretch in his career where he didn't win a big one, and with no swing changes to lean against. While he is obviously bothered mentally, Tiger has been able to channel his golf game for stretches in the first two major championships, but he hasn't been able to pull it out like he used to.

This week, Tiger almost has to win if he wants a shot at Jack's record of 18 majors, and if he wants to get back on track.

There aren't a lot of must-wins in golf, but this week, Tiger is facing one. If he fails again, the questions about his overall state of mind, and golf game, will fire up like never before.
It's Tiger's tournament to lose, and for his sake, he better not. Here are the Tiger woods winning odds and picks at Golf betting.

2010 MLB Season - Philadelphia Phillies vs. Chicago Cubs Live Picks at Online Sportsbook

The Phillies' catcher finished the first half strong, hitting three doubles in two games and scoring both the runs in a pair of 1-0 wins over the Reds. Ruiz had missed 20 games with a concussion.

The Chicago Cubs are in the middle of a frustrating season for them and their fans and while it's time for them to make a move, so far it has looked as though it isn't something they are capable of doing. The Cubs entered the All Star break as losers of five of their last 10, 20-23 at home, and nine and a half games back in the National League Central.

Philadelphia (47-40) has won consecutive NL pennants and three straight division titles, but injuries have contributed to the Phillies ending the first half third in the NL East, 4 1/2 games behind first-place Atlanta.

Philadelphia has put 12 players on the DL this year and All-Star second baseman Chase Utley (thumb surgery) isn't expected back until next month.

Time is running out on the season and while it seems like there is time for chances, that time is getting less and less. This one is pretty simple, the Phillies are just a better team than the Cubs from what we have seen and in this case the records don't lie. As an underdog, this Phillies look even better.

Boston Red Sox vs. Texas Rangers Live Preview, Picks & Predictions

Boston Red Sox vs. Texas Rangers Live Preview

Teams: Boston Red Sox vs. Texas Rangers

Date & Time: 7:40 P.M. EST, July 15th Thursday

Venue: Fenway Park

Boston Red Sox vs. Texas Rangers Live Picks at Online Sportsbook

The Boston Red Sox were one game better than the Texas Rangers before the All-Star break, but they don't feel nearly as good about their situation as the teams begin the second half at Fenway Park.

The Rangers are still comfortably atop the AL West despite losing their last four games, while the Red Sox occupy third place in the AL East and remain without several key players as they open a four-game set with Texas on Thursday night.

Boston leads the majors with 481 runs - 28 more than the Rangers, who rank third on the strength of productive seasons by All-Stars Josh Hamilton and Vladimir Guerrero. Hamilton is challenging for a batting title with a .346 average, while Guerrero is second in the majors with 75 RBIs.

The powerful lineups could create problems for both of Thursday's starting pitchers - especially Boston's Tim Wakefield, who has gone 2-5 with a 5.96 ERA in his last eight starts.
Wakefield (3-7, 5.22 ERA) also has a 6.09 ERA in 34 outings versus Texas, and Guerrero has gone 10 for 23 with five homers and 10 walks against him.

Really this would be an exciting match for Red sox and Rangers fans.

Milwaukee Brewers vs Atlanta Braves Live Odds, Picks at Online Sportsbook

Starting pitchers are Milwaukee RHP Dave Bush and Atlanta RHP Jair Jurrjens. Dave Bush is 3-1 with a 3.37 ERA and six quality starts in his last six turns. He has not allowed more than two earned runs in his last five starts. Jurrjens allowed three runs in six innings in his final start before the break against Philadelphia, his second since coming off the disabled list June 30. Their pitching has been smacked around over the last several weeks as well but David Bush has been the exception as he has been coming on strong after a slow start. He comes in off a 4-3 victory over Pittsburgh in which he allowed just two runs over 6.1 innings. Dave bush has been solid versus Atlanta with 1-1 record in four outings with a 2.33 ERA.

Coming off an embarrassing four-game sweep by the San Francisco Giants, the Brewers turned around and swept the Pirates going into the break. The next three series could determine whether the Brewers buy or sell at the trade deadline. The Braves have won four of their last five and sit atop the National League East by four games thanks to the fourth-best team ERA in the league. They acquired shortstop Alex Gonzalez from Toronto on Wednesday, sending their shortstop, Yunel Escobar, to the Blue Jays.
