LOOK IN: NFL FREE AGENTS


By Marc Lawrence — The Sporting News wasted no time naming its Top 50 players in the 2021 NFL Free Agency market. This season brings another strong veteran open market across positions. There are several high profile targets at wide receiver and plenty of depth for defense, especially at edge rusher and safety. Quarterbacks have one big headliner for now and not much else. For teams looking to spend their available money under the upcoming salary cap, there are plenty of worthy signings to upgrade rosters, from high-priced commodities to bargain talents. Heading the list is Dallas Cowboys QB Dak Prescott, who despite an early season-ending ankle injury in 2020 is a rising top-10 option at the game’s most important position. The Cowboys should be locking him up with a lucrative long-term deal … Then there is Tampa Bay WR Chris Godwin who has turned into a premier slot receiver at 6-1, 209 pounds. He runs great routes with outside versatility and despite some notable drops, he has the hands to be reliable all over the field. He isn’t close to his prime and the Bucs should do everything they can to keep him … And speaking of WRs, Allen Robinson had a massive third season with Chicago while in his prime as a complete target with 102 catches for 1,250 yards and 6 TDs. He’ll be looking to leave Chicago and finally get paired with a top QB … For a read on the Top 50 overall Free Agents click here.

ESPN reports Gonzaga was the No. 1 overall seed in the NCAA men’s basketball selection committee’s mock bracket reveal on Saturday afternoon, edging out fellow unbeaten Baylor.

Grinding Out The Profits

From the Playbook Basketball Newsletter: It’s never easy fading the defending champion Lakers, especially on the road at shorter prices. Tonight, though, they figure to be up against it with Denver playing with a huge revenge chip on its shoulders. That’s because the Nuggets lost in 5 games to the Lakers in “the bubble-up” playoffs last season, and then again by 21 points in La La Land just 10 days ago. Topping it off, the gold diggers are the 3rd most accurate team from the floor in the NBA this season, shooting 43.3% at press time, as well as the No. 2 team overall in Differential Stats. Look for the Nuggets to improve on their recent 4-1 SUATS mark as home dogs with same-season loss revenge, and on its 5-0 ATS mark in this series with same-season loss revenge of 21 or more points when the Lakers own a .600 or greater win percentage.
