FOOTBALL’S SLEEPING BEAUTIES

JULY 30, 2019–
Every season there are teams like Alabama and Clemson that tend to dominate their respective divisions and conferences. However, there are always a few teams that surprise everyone. To make the season more exciting there is a list of 5 “sleeper teams” that warrant a second-look, including the Utah Utes. The Utes made it all the way to the Pac-12 Championship last season and nearly beat Washington, but ultimately fell 64-54. Even with the loss, the fact that Utah did it without either RB Zack Moss or QB Tyler Huntley was enough to show that the team could go far in the 2019 season. One thing the Utes have going for them that other teams on this list are missing is that there are plenty of returning players and consistency within the coaching staff. Moss will be back, after recording a career-best 11 rushing touchdowns in 2018 and his second 1,000-yard season. Huntley posted 1,788 yards, 12 touchdowns, and completed 73% of his passes for a 176.6 passer rating before breaking his collarbone. Utah’s defense is already known as one of the best in the PAC-12, and minus a couple of linebackers, it remains relatively unchanged. Utah is undervalued at +1000 to win a wide-open PAC-12. Click here to see the other 4 sleeper teams on this year’s list.

Grinding Out The Profits

Entering their series against the LA Angels on Monday, the Detroit Tigers were 1-24 in their last 25 games against opponents from the A.L. West, including 0-10 their last 10 away, and 4-20 in their last 24 games in Anaheim. While we certainly can’t lay a prohibitive price on Halos hurler Erin Canning with a 10.03 ERA in his last three starts, the tale of the Tigers keeps us out of this dying dog tonight.
