Superman vs. Batman
DC is pulling out all the stops for their next big-screen venture. The sequel to this summer's "Man of Steel" will have Superman battling Batman. But who will be the next actor to wear the cape and cowl?
Josh Brolin (+250)
Rumor has it director Zack Snyder is going for a older, grittier Batman for this film. Brolin looks like the best fit and has comic book experience with Men In Black III and Jonah Hex.
Richard Armitage (+450)
This English actor has starred in Robin Hood and The Hobbit, so action flicks are no stretch. He also had a small role in Captain America as a Hydra spy.
Joe Manganiello (+750)
Dude has the physique to play Batman. It's tough to find a picture of him with his shirt on. But can a guy who played a character named "Big Dick Richie" really handle a deep and dark character like Bruce Wayne?
Jeffrey Dean Morgan (+750)
JDM has history with Snyder, playing The Comedian in 2009's Watchmen. He was also in the comic book flick The Losers, but no one really saw that one.
Ryan Gosling/Jensen Ackles (+800)
Gosling may be a stretch for Batman. He's a good actor but may be too young for the rumored role. Ackles has Superman and Batman on his resume already, starring in Smallville and providing a voice for the cartoon Batman: Under the Red Hood.
Christain Bale (+1,000)
Even though he said he was done with the Dark Knight, I think we all have our fingers crossed that Bale will be back as Batman.
Jim Caviezel/Karl Urban/Luke Evans (+1,200)
There's a long list of names rumored to be up for Batman, including Brad Pitt, former Batmans Val Kilmer, George Clooney and Michael Keaton, as well as 1960's Caped Crusader Adam West (+5,000). If you're betting this prop, it's best to stick with the faves.

1* Under Twins/Astros (8:10 ET): One year after making their respective jumps in the standings, both the Twins and Astros are struggling in 2016. They each currently reside in last place in their division and have been the two biggest money losers (in terms of net units) in all of MLB at the betting window. Something has to give in this series and while Houston (with Keuchel starting) may look like the attractive option here, I feel more comfortable recommending the Under.
Keuchel is coming off B2B bad starts. He allowed a total of 11 runs (in 12 IP) to Seattle and Texas, but it's important to note that both of those starts occurred on the road. Why is that important to note? Well, as you probably know, Keuchel is a much different (i.e. better) pitcher at home. His WL record here at Minute Maid Park is a perfect 17-0 over his L22 starts (20-2 TSR) and he has a sterling 1.47 ERA to go along with that outstanding record. His last home start saw him deal eight scoreless innings of five-hit ball against Detroit on April 15th. His career ERA (in three starts) vs. Minnesota is 2.30. The bullpen has been a bit worrisome for the Astros this season, but moreso on the road. When it comes to runs allowed, I feel the home team will "do its job" tonight.
As for Minnesota, they will send highy touted prospect Jose Berrios to the bump. His big league debut did not go particularly well, but there was a long weather delay and cold conditions in Cleveland. I think he should fare better here in the friendlier Houston climate. Also, facing an Astros lineup that has scored just one run in three of its previous four games should be a big help as well. Look for a low-scoring game here. 1* Under Twins/Astros
