New York Marathon 2018

The top marathon runners in the world will be in New York City Sunday for the 48th annual New York Marathon. From the spectacular start at the Verrazano Bridge through its 26.2-mile trip through all five boroughs of the city, it is a remarkable test for elite and competitive runners.

The race starts in Staten Island, goes through Brooklyn, Manhattan, Queens and goes to the Bronx. The marathon course is completed in picturesque Central Park.

Here’s a link to the New York City Marathon map, as well as a visual of the route that 50,000 athletes will run.

The New York City Marathon is a huge event that basically shuts down vehicular transportation in the city throughout the day.

According to the event’s website, the city and the marathon organizers give runners approximately six-and-a-half hours to complete the race, and that’s when traffic can start to roll again. The areas at the start of the course open sooner than those near the middle and finish.

The upper level of the Verrazano Bridge actually closes at midnight Sunday and will not reopen until 3 p.m. Sunday afternoon. Central Park South closes at 9 a.m., and vehicular traffic will be able to resume at 6:15 p.m.

The marathon offers $825,000 in prize money that goes to runners in four divisions. The Open Division offers $100,000 to the winner, $60,000 to the second-place finisher and $40,000 to the third-place runner.

The USA Division, the Masters Division and the NYRR Division are also running for cash awards. In addition to the prize money, bonuses are also paid based on the time that runners complete the race.

The marathon will be televised on ESPN2 between 9 a.m. and 12:30 p.m., and it can also be viewed on the ESPN app on smartphones, tablets and streaming devices.

Significant security measures are being taken to keep the race safe. As a result, all bags brought to the viewing areas are subject to search. Race organizers have urged spectators and race-goers not to bring bags. Additionally, marathon organizers have provided a long list of items that are prohibited from the premises.

The race organizers have an official list of rules. Among them, runners must cross over all official timing checkpoints, numbered bibs cannot be transferred and assistance by non-participant cannot be provided.

American Shalane Flanagan won the women’s marathon (open division) in 2017, and Geoffrey Kamworor of Kenya won the men’s race (open division). Swiss racers Marcel Hug and Manuela Schar won the wheelchair division.

Steelers vs Ravens

Bitter division rivals clash on Sunday at 1 p.m. ET when the Baltimore Ravens host the Pittsburgh Steelers at M&T Bank Stadium. You can bet revenge will be on the Steelers’ minds after their 26-14 home loss to the Ravens in Week 4. Since then, Pittsburgh has won three straight to regain control of the AFC North. Baltimore is listed as a 2.5-point favorite, while the Over-Under, or total number of points Vegas thinks will be scored, is 47 in the latest Steelers vs. Ravens odds, down from an open of 47.5. Before you make any Steelers vs. Ravens picks, check out what the SportsLine Projection Model has to say.

The model was a blistering 13-1 straight-up last week. Additionally, it was a strong 6-0 on all top-rated picks in Week 8, including nailing the Redskins (-1) over the Giants and the Seahawks (+3) vs. the Lions. That perfect mark in Week 8 improved its overall run to 68-43 on all top-rated picks. Anybody who has been following those picks is way, way up.

Now, the model has simulated Steelers vs. Ravens 10,000 times. We can tell you the model leans Under, but its stronger pick is against the spread. One side is cashing well over 50 percent of the time, and you can only see which team to back at SportsLine.

The model has factored in that since the Steelers’ loss to the Ravens, quarterback Ben Roethlisberger has been playing his best ball. He’s averaging 292 passing yards per game and tossed six touchdowns. He also has improved his completion accuracy to over 65 percent. With Pro Bowl receiver Antonio Brown frequently fighting through double-teams, JuJu Smith-Schuster has stepped up to become perhaps the league’s top No. 2 receiver. He leads the Steelers with 594 receiving yards.

The absence of Le’Veon Bell has not slowed the Steelers’ running game. Averaging nearly 86 yards rushing, James Conner has been a beast between the tackles. He’s gouging defenses at 4.7 yards per carry and has hit pay dirt nine times. He also has played a huge part in the screen game, with 31 receptions for 323 yards.

Just because the Steelers are potent offensively doesn’t mean they’ll stay within the spread, especially on the road in a division game.

Now in his 11th year, Ravens quarterback Joe Flacco is enjoying a career renaissance after a disappointing 2017 season. He has thrown for nearly 2,300 yards and 12 touchdowns. He’s averaging 274 passing yards per game — up an astounding 78 yards from last year.

Factoring into Flacco’s banner year is his effective receiving trio of John Brown, Willie Snead and Michael Crabtree, each of whom has at least 30 receptions. Brown leads the Ravens with 596 receiving yards, is among the league leaders in yards per catch at a whopping 18.9, and has four TD receptions.

Baltimore’s primary rusher, Alex Collins, returned to practice Friday and is expected to play despite being questionable with a foot injury. He’s a key cog with six TDs already.

Alabama vs LSU

With 100,000 fans set to descend on Death Valley as No. 4 LSU hosts No. 1 Alabama under the lights on Saturday night, millions of fans will watch on television for what may go down as the biggest regular-season game of the year. The Crimson Tide are 14.5-point favorites in the latest Alabama vs. LSU odds, having spent time at -14 at various points throughout the week. The total is set at 52.5 points with bettors wondering what gives between Tua Tagovailoa and the Alabama offense and Ed Orgeron’s LSU defense. Before you make any Alabama vs. LSU picks and predictions, you’ll want to see what the advanced computer model at SportsLine projects for Saturday night’s 8:00 p.m. ET showdown on CBS.

The SportsLine Projection Model simulates every FBS college football game 10,000 times, and those who have followed it have seen massive returns. Over the past three years, this proprietary computer model has generated a jaw-dropping $4,210 profit for $100 bettors on its top-rated point-spread picks.

The model made some huge calls in Week 9, including nailing Oklahoma State’s outright upset of No. 6 Texas. It also was all over Georgia (-6.5) covering against Florida, and recommended California (+12) against Washington, as well as Kentucky (+7) against Missouri. Anyone who has followed it is way up.

Now, the model has simulated every possible play for Alabama vs. LSU 10,000 times and the results are in. We can tell you the model is leaning towards the Under, and it has also locked in a strong against the spread pick that hits in over 55 percent of simulations. You can only see that pick at SportsLine.

For Saturday night, the strength of LSU’s entire team is a secondary loaded with NFL-caliber talent. They torture opposing quarterbacks and they’re taking it upon themselves to make sure that Tagovailoa’s jaunt towards New York City and the Heisman Trophy hits a serious speed bump.

Starting with Greedy Williams, who draft pundits are pegging as a potential top-five pick at the 2019 NFL Draft, LSU has playmaker after playmaker in the back end. Safeties Grant Delpit and John Battle have combined for eight interceptions this season and Williams has combined with fellow cornerback Kary Vincent Jr. and Kristian Fulton to defend 15 passes. Their ability to slow down Tagovailoa and to potentially turn him over could make or break the game.

Expect Alabama to try to wear down LSU’s defense with its versatile running game. Najee Harris, Damien Harris, Brian Robinson Jr. and Joshua Jacobs have all rushed for at least 240 yards this season. The quartet will try to gash an LSU rushing defense that has allowed at least 200 yards rushing in two of its last three games.

Combine that with what quarterbacks Jalen Hurts and Tagovailoa add on the ground and you have six potential ball carriers for LSU to account for. An effective rushing attack will eventually open things up for Alabama’s lethal vertical passing game.

Florida vs Missouri, Preview: Gators hope to bounce back on Homecoming

Florida vs Missouri

No. 11 Florida is back in action on Saturday and the Gators Territory crew gives their predictions for the game against Missouri:

COREY BENDER: After giving up over 400 yards and 36 points,Todd Grantham’s defense certainly had their hiccups against Georgia a week ago, but I expect them to get after Drew Lock in hopes of forcing a couple of turnovers as well.

Lock, a potential first-round pick, will likely get his fair share by throwing for plenty of yards, but the Gators are still top 20 in both passing defense and scoring defense. QB Feleipe Franks is also coming off a poor performance, recording two of the team’s three turnovers in Jacksonville, but continues to grow and is having a decent season under Dan Mullen.I think the difference here is UF’s defense. The players from last year’s loss still have a bad taste in their mouth as well, so there are a few motivating factors in favor of the Gators. FINAL SCORE: Florida 31 Missouri 21

Florida vs Missouri Football

JACQUIE FRANCIULLI: Florida’s offense had a setback last weekend in its loss to Georgia, however, I think Feleipe Franks and company can take advantage of Missouri’s secondary. Meanwhile, I think the Gators’ defense have enough playmakers to force a few turnovers.

Yes, Drew Lock may put up some high numbers but I expect one of those high numbers will be turnovers. FINAL SCORE: Florida 31 Missouri 19

MICHAEL PHILLIPS: I think this game can be scary for the Gators. The matchup that everybody is concerned about s Florida’s secondary against Drew Lock and Missouri’s receivers.

But outside of a depleted secondary, the Gators hold the edge. I see this game being high scoring by both sides, but in the end, Florida has too much for Missouri’s offense to overcome. FINAL SCORE: Florida 38 Missouri 28.

MICHAEL KNAUFF: Florida has a lot going for them this week against Missouri but just enough going against them to make this week interesting.

Last week against Georgia the nation’s number two passing defense was ripped to pieces after corner C.J. Henderson went out of the ball game. His services will be greatly needed going against Missouri quarterback Drew Lock this week, who’s arguably the best quarterback in the SEC East.

The key for the Gators will be getting a pass rush. It was virtually non-existent against UGA and has to show up this week. Lock has been known to get rattled under pressure and if the Florida front-four can get in his face, he’ll force some throws. On offense, it’s the same mantra as every other week, run the ball. Establish the ground game, eat clock and keep Lock off the field and this should be a win for the Gators on homecoming. FINAL SCORE: Florida 30 Missouri 21

Georgia vs Kentucky

An SEC East title is up for grabs Saturday as the No. 6 Georgia Bulldogs visit the No. 11 Kentucky Wildcats in a marquee showdown on CBS at 3:30 p.m. ET. The Bulldogs are looking to overcome another challenge in their quest to make a return visit to the SEC title game, and perhaps a second consecutive trip to the four-team playoffs. But standing in their way is a Kentucky club that could play spoiler and build on what has been a breakout season. The Bulldogs are 9.5-point favorites in the latest Georgia vs. Kentucky odds, down from openers as high as -10.5 in some markets. The Over-Under for total points scored is offered at 47.5, up significantly after opening at 44 points. Before you lock in your Georgia vs. Kentucky picks, check out the results from the SportsLine Projection Model.

It also was all over Georgia (-6.5) covering against Florida, and recommended California (+12) against Washington, as well as Kentucky (+7) against Missouri. Anyone who has followed it is way up.

Georgia vs Kentucky Football Game

Now the model has crunched the numbers for Georgia vs. Kentucky. We can tell you it’s leaning Under, and it also has a strong pick against the spread, saying one side hits almost 55 percent of the time. You can only see that pick at SportsLine.

Kentucky coach Mark Stoops was considered on the hot seat after failing to produce a winning record in each of his first three seasons. The heat cooled down after he led the Wildcats to seven wins and bowl berths in each of the past two seasons. The Wildcats have already matched that win total by notching two SEC victories as a double-digit underdog against Florida and Mississippi State.

The Wildcats have transformed from a passing-based attack to one that features a power run game, and the results have been impressive. Junior Benny Snell leads the SEC with 935 yards and nine touchdowns. But perhaps Kentucky’s biggest strides have been made on the defensive side, as it ranks second in the country in scoring defense, allowing just 13 points per contest.

Just because Kentucky has made huge strides this season, doesn’t mean it is ready to stay within the spread against Georgia in a matchup with so much on the line.

The Bulldogs had a letdown against LSU two weeks ago and paid for it with a blowout loss. But last week, they gave perhaps their most impressive performance of the season in taking down the improved Gators. Jake Frommthrew for 240 yards with three touchdowns and no interceptions in an efficient outing. Georgia managed 189 rushing yards against a stout Florida defense, led by D’Andre Swift’s 104 and a touchdown.

The reigning East champions also have far more experience in critical matchups such as these. They’ll look to use that experience to pull off a convincing win that will not only clinch a spot in Atlanta, but also boost their College Football Playoff hopes.

The Filly & Mare Sprint (Noon ET), Turf Sprint (12:38 p.m. ET), Dirt Mile (1:16 p.m. ET), Filly & Mare Turf (2:04 p.m. ET) and Twinspires Sprint (2:46 p.m. ET) will be broadcast on NBC Sports Network, while the Mile (3:36 p.m. ET), Longines Distaff (4:16 p.m. ET), Longines Turf (4:56 p.m. ET) and Breeders’ Cup Classic (5:44 p.m. ET) will all be on NBC.

If you don’t have cable or can’t get to a TV, you can watch a live stream of all of Saturday’s races (or DVR them) on your computer, phone, tablet or streaming device by signing up for one of the cable-free, live-TV streaming services:

If you can’t watch live, FuboTV comes with 30 hours of Cloud DVR (with the ability to upgrade to 500 hours), as well as a “72-Hour Lookback” feature, which will allow you to watch coverage up to three days after it airs even if you forgot to record it.

Hulu With Live TV:

With a $6 million purse and a list of past champions that includes A.P. Indy, Curlin, American Pharoah, Arrogate and other all-time greats, it’s easy to see why the Breeders’ Cup Classic is arguably the biggest non-Triple Crown race of the year.

The oddsmakers’ favorite is Accelerate, a John Sadler-trained five-year-old who has won each of his last three races, all of which were Grade-1 stakes.

Of course, no lucrative race like this one is complete without a handful of contenders from Bob Baffert. The legendary trainer’s top-two favorites, McKinzie and West Coast, will enter having each raced just once in the last six months, but that worked pretty well for Baffert with Justify, who had just one Grade-1 prep race before the Kentucky Derby and then went on to win the Triple Crown.

McKinzie won the Grade-1 Pennsylvania Derby in September, while West Coast–who is used to lucrative races such as this one with starts in the 2017 Breeders’ Cup Classic (third), 2018 Pegasus World Cup (second) and 2018 Dubai World Cup (second)–finished second to Accelerate at Santa Anita Park a week later.

“The way he ran against Accelerate, he gave it his heart,” Baffert said. “He just got beat that day. He got tired. The one thing about him: He always shows up, and a mile and a quarter, he likes it. I think he’s going to get a lot of action. I think he looks good. I really like him coming into this race. He’s doing really, really well, so I expect a big race from him.”

Other strong contenders include Catholic Boy, who won the Grade-1 Belmont Derby in July and the Grade-1 Travers Stakes in August, and Mind Your Biscuits, who won the Grade-3 Lukas Classic Stakes in September.
