The Conscience of Thoroughbred Racing


By Marc Lawrence —
The Chiefs have never lost a game by more than seven points with Mahomes as their starter … Kansas City earned an AFC West title for the fourth straight year, clinching a playoff spot for the sixth time in seven seasons under Reid … San Francisco not only had the best record in the NFC this season but also its first winning season since 2013 … This is the first time a Super Bowl will feature two teams with red as a primary uniform color. The Chiefs will be wearing their traditional home red jerseys with white pants, while the 49ers will don their standard white away jerseys with gold pants … Bill Vinovich will serve as the game’s head referee.

From this week’s Playbook Hoops Newsletter: A crosstown battle of the boroughs takes place at Madison Square Garden this evening where the Nets will be keen on avenging a 94-82 home loss to the Knicks last month the day after Christmas. One of the things we like best about neighborhood rivalries is that the odds maker prices the home team when the visitors are making a short jaunt on a team bus over to the arena. The value adds up in these affairs, especially when the team hopping off the bus is packing revenge. The Knickerbockers enter off a revenge tussle against the Raptors on Friday (0-8 SU and 0-7-1 ATS post Toronto), with yet another with same-season revenger on deck at Charlotte on Tuesday. Hop on the bus with the Jersey Boys.
