In our first picks, we’re taking the Yankees over Boston at home, as well as St. Louis to win one back with Lance Lynn in a favorable pitching duel against Pittsburgh’s Erik Bedard. In later match-ups find Washington’s Edwin Jackson in a good battle with the New York Mets’ Jonathon Niese, expect a heated battle in the Tampa vs. Los Angeles series, as the Angels try to recover from a punishing 12-3 loss last night at home, and spot wagers on the Philadelphia Phillies vs. Milwaukee Brewers series, as Cole Hamels has an interesting duel against the Brew Crew’s Mike Fiers.
Checking out the options for NFL preseason games on Saturday, the focus will be first and foremost on the match-up between the Seattle Seahawks and the Denver Broncos, as Denver quarterback Peyton Manning gets his first snaps in live action as a member of the Broncos. In another much anticipated showdown, a clash in NYC features the New York Giants against the New York Jets, which should no doubt make for plenty of fanfare as both teams solidify their rosters in a game which will feature lots of players trying to make their respective teams.
