Tom Brady gushes about Andrew Luck

New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady has taken notice of Luck, the third-year Indianapolis Colts quarterback. He has little to do with Luck directly this week, when the Patriots play the Colts in a tremendous Sunday night matchup. They won't be on the field at the same time, but Brady went out of his way to praise Luck during his Wednesday press conference.

"He does a lot of things I wish I could do," said Brady, according to the Patriots' transcript. "Hes big, fast, shrugs off blockers. He makes a lot of extended plays. Hes a great passer. I think theyve thrown for more yards at this point in the year than any other team in history, so I guess that speaks to what theyre doing offensively."

Luck probably wishes he'll end up with a career like Brady. Brady is arguably the greatest quarterback ever, a three-time champion and a two-time MVP. And here Brady is heaping that kind of praise on a young quarterback. That says a lot about Luck.

Brady isn't facing Luck directly, but he knows that Luck affects what he has to do. Luck has an NFL-best 3,085 passing yards and the Colts have scored 290 points, most in the league.

"Were going to have to score a lot," Brady said. "When you play another great offense, youre going to have to put up a lot of points, similar to our last game. We realize we have a big job, too. Youre right, my focus is on other side of the ball, but you also know youre not going to be able to score 13 points and win the game."

NL West title going down to the wire

With the Colorado Rockies playoff Football Live Betting Lines nfl football betting Online Bingo Online Bingo Rooms Sportsbook NFL Odds hopes eliminated Tuesday, the NL West race is down to two teams. The Padres and Giants remain to fight for the division title. San Francisco enters Wednesday with a two-game lead on San Diego and hopes to widen the gap when it hosts the Diamondbacks. Meanwhile, San Diego continues its four-game series with the Cubs at Petco. Odds: San Francisco -150, Arizona +140 Total: 7.5

A pair of red-hot pitchers meet in San Francisco Wednesday night when Ian Kennedy (9-9, 3.76 ERA) goes up against Tim Lincecum (15-10, 3.51). Kennedy has a 1.12 ERA over his past three starts and has given up one run or less in five of his past six starts. The Arizona bullpen hasn’t been kind to Kennedy, as the Diamondbacks have lost three of his past four outings despite Kennedy’s strong starts. One such instance was September 6 against the Giants, where Kennedy went eight shutout innings, only to see San Francisco win the game 2-0 in 11 innings. Kennedy has been impressive against the Giants over his career, going 1-1 with a 2.20 ERA in four starts.

Linecum enters Wednesday off a terrific outing in Colorado where he went eight innings, giving up one run on two hits while striking out nine. The right-hander is 2-1 with a 1.80 ERA over his past three starts. After struggling in August, Lincecum has shined in September, winning four of his five starts without allowing more than three runs in any of those outings. He’s 6-2 with a 2.71 ERA in 13 career starts against the Diamondbacks.

Even though the Diamondbacks bullpen is shaky, this MLB betting trend likes Arizona:

Play On - All underdogs with a money line of +100 to +150 (ARIZONA) - with a poor bullpen whose ERA is 4.50 or worse on the season, with a hot starting pitcher- WHIP <= 1.100 over his last 10 games. (42-18 over the last 5 seasons.) (70%, +32.6 units. Rating = 4*). Odds: San Diego -150, Chicago +140 Total: 6.5

The Padres look to pick up some ground on the Giants before heading to San Francisco to close out the year in what should be the biggest matchup of the weekend. First, they hope Chris Young (1-0, 1.20 ERA) can take care of the Cubs. Young is making his third start since coming off the disabled list earlier this month. He’s been effective in his two outings, combining to go nine innings, while giving up two runs on six hits. The Padres have won both those games, against Cincinnati and St. Louis.

Young will be opposed by Randy Wells (8-13. 4.28 ERA) Wells has pitched well lately, going 2-1 with a 2.08 ERA over his past three starts. His most recent effort was especially impressive, throwing 7.2 innings of shutout ball and picking up a win in San Francisco. Wells was on the wrong end of a 1-0 game against San Diego in August where he gave up one run on three hits over seven innings, but still took the loss.

Despite their woeful season, this betting trend suggests there might be some value in backing Chicago:

Play Against - Home favorites with a money line of -110 or higher (SAN DIEGO) - poor hitting team (AVG <=.250) against an average starting pitcher (ERA=4.20 to 5.20) -NL, with a very good bullpen whose WHIP is 1.250 or better on the season. (33-14 since 1997.) (70.2%, +32.1 units. Rating = 4*).

MLB: NL West skirmish has one-sided system

The Los Angeles Dodgers had their nine-game win streak snapped at an inopportune time, losing last night to division leading San Diego 10-5. The Padres were the first team in ten games to rip thru the Dodgers pitching, who had allowed 18 total runs during their scorching streak . L.A. will try to rebound on Thursday and is set as a -158 favorite at as of last check.

The Dodgers defense has been a source of concern all year, ranking 11th in the National League. However they have tightened up all aspects of their game and have gone six contests without an error.

Manager Joe Torre will hand the horse-hide over to Clayton Kershaw (3-2, 3.55 ERA, 1.358 WHIP), which should put smile on everyone face preferring the home team for sports betting purposes. Kershaw has allowed one run in his last two starts, permitting five hits over 15 innings, striking out 16 opposing batters. Equally as important for him the left-hander is giving up just five walks.

L.A. is 29-8 in home games after a loss and will face Kevin Correia (4-3, 4.35, 1.220), who Kershaw and the Dodgers downed 4-1 last Saturday in San Diego. Correia allowed the four runs over 5 1/3 innings in the defeat while attempting to overcome the emotional scars of losing his younger brother, Trevor, who died after falling from a 60-foot cliff while hiking on Santa Cruz Island. has Los Angeles as -158 money line favorites, despite having Andre Either out the lineup and possibly Manny Ramirez, who injured his left foot before yesterday’s contest and was scratched from the starting nine and later was used as pinch-hitter. Nevertheless, the situation is quite favorable for the home team in this I-5 conflict.

Play On favorites with a money line of -125 to -175, after three straight games where they committed no errors, starting a pitcher who gave up one or fewer earned runs in his last two outings.

This baseball system is 62-16, 79.5 percent since 2006 and the margin of victory has been decisive, with the favored club winning by 2.4 runs per contest. Everything points to a Dodgers triumph with L.A. 33-13 in May games since last year.

MLB: Top MLB Weekend Power Trends – 9/18-9/20

If there are going to be any changes in the Major League Baseball playoff picture from where it stands now, this weekend will be the turning point. There are six key series’ on tap that figure to be influential. For all of the chasing clubs, this could be their last ditch effort to make a run at the postseason. Four matchups pit division leaders against their second-place followers, while the Dodgers, Rockies, and Giants will continue to try and clear up the N.L. West & wildcard races. Let’s take a look at those matchups plus reveal some of the Top StatFox Betting Trends you’ll want to consider in your baseball weekend wagering.

The most intriguing series would seem to be occurring in the Metrodome, where a Twins sweep over the visiting Tigers would get them within one game of the American League Central lead. Minnesota is a -150 series favorite to take two out of three, but don’t be fooled, Manager Ron Gardenhire’s team needs and wants all three games. His club comes into the series on a 4-game winning streak and boasting a 5-1 record against the Tigers in 2009 at home. Detroit is trying to withstand the Twins rally and stop its own fade as well, as they have lost seven of 10 as of Friday.

The Angels head to Texas looking to snap a skid that has seen them lose nine of 12 to the Rangers this year, including five of six in Arlington. A three-game sweep by the Rangers would pull Texas to within 3 1/2 games of the Angels in the AL West standings. It’s pretty much come down to division title or bust now for Texas, as they’ve faded out of the wildcard hunt by losing their last four games. Los Angeles has been one of the league’s better road teams in ’09, going 43-32 for +14 units of betting profit. Oddsmakers have tabbed the Halos as a -135 series favorite.

The Phillies will have their hands full in Atlanta, where the Braves have won seven in a row. Philadelphia hasn’t lost a lot on its lead though during that span, putting up victories in its last five games. The Braves are 7 1/2 games behind the Phillies and only 4 1/2 behind Colorado in the Wild Card standings. Atlanta’s bats have been red-hot in the current streak, scoring 6.4 RPG while batting .333 and boasting an on-base percentage of .397. They are also on a 16-8 run when hosting Philadelphia over the L3 seasons.

Elsewhere, the Cubs are facing a nine-game deficit in the Central and a seven-game mountain to climb for the Wild Card, but three wins in St. Louis would help. They’ll also be looking for assistance from the Diamondbacks, who are hosting Colorado this weekend. Also keeping an eye on that series will be the Dodgers and Giants, who play one another in L.A., and San Francisco could be finished if they don't take at least two of three on the road this weekend. They're 3 1/2 games behind Colorado for the Wild Card and 8 1/2 behind the Dodgers in the division. That certainly won’t be easy, with the Dodgers owning records of 46-29 at home and 42-22 vs. divisional opponents in ’09.
