As the NFL celebrates its 100 anniversary, the league welcomes the Kansas City Chiefs back to the Super Bowl for the first time in 50 years.

Athletics vs Dodgers: MLB Battle at Chavez Ravine
Dodgers look to stop a slight losing skid
Decent heading into and out of the MLB All-Star break, with a 9-4 record over thirteen games, Los Angeles dropped two straight matches prior to enjoying a day off yesterday. The Dodgers return to Chavez Ravine following a run of ten games on the road. Sitting with a 56-44 overall record, Los Angeles is first in the NL West but their lead is a razor thin half game over San Francisco.
Oakland Athletics: Battling Boston for the American League cellar
Though not a lot was expected in Oakland this season, the Athletics had a +3000 World Series price back in March, we doubt many thought Boys from the Bay would be American League cellar dwellers. Based on tiebreakers, that’s exactly where the Athletics are as their 44-56 record matches the Red Sox current mark. The A’s are difficult to decipher from day to day as they are 12th overall in runs scored and 13th in runs allowed – which are both fairly decent marks.
Dodgers vs Athletics MLB Prediction: Los Angeles LHP Brett Anderson (5-5 ERA 3.33) is up against Oakland ace RHP Sonny Gray (10-4 ERA 2.30) in this California clash. Understanding how brilliant Gray can be, we still feel the Game Total is low here. We are backing the OVER with a 500 unit wager on Over/Under price posted on the betting board at the USA friendly Bovada online sportsbook.
