For most of this season, the Yankees have occupied the basement in the American League East. But after five straight wins, the last four coming in Oakland, they now find themselves in third. Toronto, despite their win over Minnesota on Sunday, has fallen into last.
One team that has had a nice week thus far is Cleveland, who saw their YTD run differential go from +8 to +35 thanks to a four-game sweep of lowly Cincinnati. This weekend’s opponent may have the same color in their nickname, but that’s all the Red Sox and Reds have in common right now.

The decision by the Los Angeles Clippers to upgrade from Vinny Del Negro to Doc Rivers could end up being one of the best moves of the offseason and oddsmakers have set the Clips as the favorites in the NBA's Pacific Division. The Golden State Warriors, who added their own impressive piece in Andre Iguodala, will be the main competition after a playoff run that was highlighted by a trip to the Western Conference semifinals.
Barring a season of regression or a disastrous injury, the Miami Heat are poised to run away with the Southeast Division title. The Washington Wizards are a trendy pick to nab a playoff spot in the thin Eastern Conference, while the Atlanta Hawks will look to clinch a playoff spot for the seventh-consecutive season.
The Oklahoma City Thunder are big favorites to win the Northwest Division, with the Denver Nuggets looking like long-shot value heading into the season. The rest of the division is a bit of a mystery with playoff potential in a few teams.
The Chicago Bulls and the Indiana Pacers are the definitive leaders of the NBA's Central Division and with a healthy Derrick Rose, the Bulls look primed to approach 60 wins in 2013-14. A pair of young, up and coming teams - the Cleveland Cavs and Detroit Pistons - could compete for playoff positions. The Milwaukee Bucks, on the other hand, could be in store for a rough campaign.
With Dwight Howard’s move to Houston, the Southwest Division is shaping up to be the NBA’s toughest stable of teams. The Rockets, Spurs, and Grizzlies should all make the postseason and even the Pelicans, projected to finish last in the division, look like they could be respectable.
The Atlantic Division could be the softest group of teams in the NBA, which means plenty of pointspread value on a nightly basis. The Nets and Knicks look to be the class of the division but the Raptors could turn out to be a diamond in the rough.
Both teams here a 2-0 SU/ATS. The Saints have played both of their games so far at home and only managed to squeak by both the Chiefs and Raiders, two teams that combined for only six wins last season. That’s the bad news. The good news is that Drew Brees and the first team offense looked great last week, racing out to a 23-0 lead vs. Oakland. Brees completed 14 of 18 passes for over 200 yards and wound up leading five different scoring drives. He had some praise for the play of his wide rec
Injuries at the quarterback position are the story here for this late Saturday afternoon start time. Both the Bills and Redskins are 2-0 SU/ATS in the preseason, but the respective moods surrounding both teams are a bit darker than you’d think. In Buffalo, EJ Manuel appeared to be well on his way to winning the starting QB job in his rookie season. But after completing 26 of 33 passes for 200+ yards in two games, swelling was discovered in his left knee & he’s been lost for the remainder of the
This is a rematch from the infamous “Fail Mary” game from last year’s regular season that in many ways set the tone for both teams’ regular seasons. For a second straight year, the Seahawks have looked great in the preseason. Last year’s 4-0 campaign introduced us all to the exploits of future MVP candidate (yes, you read that right) QB Russell Wilson, and so far they are 2-0 in 2013, making it six consecutive double digit wins in the preseason under head coach Pete Carroll. That’s a big reaso
