Who Will Play Lex Luthor?
So, Ben Affleck is Batman. There are greater tragedies in life. Perhaps "Man of Steel" director Zack Snyder can atone for his sins and cast a fan favorite in the role of super villain Lex Luthor, who has been played by guys like Kevin Spacey and Gene Hackman in the past.
Bryan Cranston (+400)
Fresh of the final season of "Breaking Bad", Cranston could jump right into the role of Luthor. He's got the acting range and the comic wit to pull off Superman's arch-nemesis.
Mark Strong (+600)
Strong is no stranger to playing the bad guy and has already got a foot in the door of the DC Universe, playing good guy-turned-bad Sinestro in "Green Lantern". That may work against him if they want to tie everything into a "Justice League" movie.
Mackenzie Gray (+700)
Gray was in "Man of Steel", playing the role of Jax-Ur, one of Krypton's baddies. He also played an aged Lex Luthor clone in the Superman TV series "Smallville". Not sure how they pull this off, but he's high on the list.
Alexander Skarsgard / Mads Mikkelsen (+1,000)
Skarsgard has risen to fame in the vampire series "True Blood" while Mikkelsen is best known as the blood-crying bad guy in the Bond flick "Casino Royale" and taking on the role of Hannibal Lecter in the TV series "Hannibal".
Jason Isaacs / Billy Zane (+1,200)
Billy Zane gets a nod simply because he pulls off the bald head so easily. Plus he was a total dick in "Titanic". Isaac is better known as "Lucius Malfoy" from the Harry Potter franchise but has connections to DC, stemming from voice work in Batman and Green Lantern cartoons. Smell that value.
John Malkovich can be had at +1,400, if you think Luthor should feed on the dreams of small children. Liam Neeson and his "special set of skills" are priced at +1,600, and Jeff Bridges - AKA The Dude - is listed at +1,700. He'd really tie the movie together, man...

Monday Night NFL *1* Free Pick from Scott 'The Bulldog' Rickenbach
Scott "The Bulldog" Rickenbach NFL Free Pick *1* on Baltimore @ Cleveland @ 8:30 PM Monday - Both teams have so many issues right now that I decided to pass on releasing a star rated pick on Monday Night's NFL match-up. However, that doesn't mean that I don't see any value here. In fact, as this line has now climbed up to a 4.5 in some spots, I do feel the Ravens are worth a look here. Again, it's not a star rated play for me but making the key numbers of 3 and 4 now winners for the Ravens as a dog means there is some additional value here. Cleveland is going with Josh McCown at QB because of all the issues with Johnny Manziel. The Ravens are forced to go with Matt Schaub at QB after the injury to Joe Flacco. While neither QB situation is ideal are the Browns really 4.5 points better than the Ravens at this point in the season? Cleveland has only won two games all season and one of those came by just three points and that was the victory at Baltimore which also gives the Ravens the added 'revenge factor' here. As for the Ravens, sure their 3-7 record on the season is ugly but Baltimore has had 4 losses by 4 points or less this year. In other words, give the Ravens +4.5 in every game this year and their record would be 7-3 ATS. Have the Browns laying 4.5 in every game this season and their record would be 1-9 ATS. The point is that this line is now reaching a value point and in what is likely going to be an ugly game that could be anybody's game, the Ravens plus the significant points is certainly worth a look in this one. *1* Free Pick on Baltimore Monday Night.
