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* Free Play Packers.
Last week I gave you a free play on the Jacksonville Jaguars, an easy winner that almost took the game outright. This week I’m looking at a larger favorite, but one which I think has a number of different situational, motivational and strong trend based reasons working in its favor.
I definitely feel that the Green Bay Packers are worth a second look in this spot. The Packers five game win streak would get snapped in last week’s listless 21-13 setback at Buffalo, however take note that it was the second straight week that Green Bay failed to cover the spread. A date vs. the inconsistent Buccaneers is just what the doctor ordered to get untracked though in my opinion, Tampa is coming off its fourth straight SU loss in last week’s 19-17 setback at Carolina. The Packers are in a dog fight with Detroit for the NFC North’s top seed, added incentive today to take full advantage of their weaker opponent. Note that Green Bay is 7-3 ATS in its last ten off an upset loss as a favorite, while Tampa Bay is just 2-4 ATS in its last six after scoring 20 points or less in three straight games. At this time of year, “situations” become very a important tool for handicappers, consider a play on GREEN BAY this weekend.
