Kicking Off Football Week Tonight With…
Best Bets Club Set To Get Cash Tonight
When Two Underrated Teams Meet On ESPN
Arkansas State (1-2) and Georgia State (1-1) seldom get the recognition they deserve because
they are located off the beaten path and play in the Sun Belt Conference. That said, both have
solid football programs that impact every season. Arkansas State opened 2020 with a 37-24 loss
at Memphis and came right back the next week and with a win at Kansas State (3-1) , a team
that has since beaten Oklahoma, Texas Tech and TCU. Georgia State opened last season with a
38-30 win at Tennessee and has gone to bowl games in three of the past five seasons, despite
having started its football program just 11 years ago.
These two teams meet tonight in Jonesboro, Arkansas, where Arkansas State’s Red Wolves will
take the field as 3.5-point favorites. The game kicks off at 7:30 EDT and will be televised on
I am releasing the contest as a 15-unit Best Bets Club play and you can win it for just $9, charged to your major credit card or to Pay Pal. The winner is available on this website (Click Here) or toll free at my office…1-800-755-2255.
In Baseball Tonight…
Dodgers Look To Even Series Against Braves
Off Record-Breaking Win On 2-0 Night
The real Los Angeles Dodgers (1-2) came out of hiding last night and blasted the Atlanta Braves
(2-1) 15-3 on a record-breaking night in the race for the National League pennant. Los Angeles
scored a MLB postseason record 11 runs in the first inning and never looked back. The Dodgers
are heavy favorites to even the series 2-2 with ace Clayton Kershaw (2-0, 1.93 in postseason)
scheduled to start.
Meantime, the Tampa Bay Rays (3-1) are looking to beat the Houston Astros (1-3), win the
American League pennant and head for the World Series. Game five in this series begins at 5:07
EDT and will be televised by TBS. It is being played at Petco Park in San Diego.
The Braves-Dodgers contest, played at Globe Life Field in Houston, begins at 8:08 EDT and will
televised by FOX.
For the record, the Dodgers are trying to become only the 14 th team to rally from an 0-2 deficit
in a best-of-seven postseason series. Teams facing such a deficit that have won Game 3 have
then come all the way back to win the series 12 of 48 times (25 percent). However, entering
2020, each of the past 17 teams to take a 2-0 lead before losing Game 3 had recovered to win
the series, since the 1996 Yankees rallied in the World Series against the Braves. (Roberts’ 2004
Red Sox also rallied from a 3-0 deficit against New York in the ALCS.)
The Dodgers have come back from 0-2 deficits four times in their postseason history: in the
1955 World Series vs. the Yankees (they won the series, 4-3); the 1965 World Series vs. the
Twins (won series, 4-3); the 1981 NL Division Series vs. the Astros (won best-of-5 series, 3-2);
and the 1981 World Series vs. Yankees (won series, 4-2).

Highlight Betting Weekend Schedule
There are many college and NFL games this weekend in which bettors can find the winning
edges it takes to beat the spread. Keep in mind, it is never about who wins but who covers.
Highlight of the schedule will be the Southeastern Conference showdown that finds the
undefeated Georgia Bulldogs at the undefeated Alabama Crimson Tide.
This will be the 70 th meeting between these two, and it goes without saying both go all-in when
they face one another. Alabama leads the series, 40-25-4, and will be going for its sixth straight
win against the Bulldogs. This Contest will be my top Best Bets Club play on a 3-0 weekend.

You can take it to the bank New England quarterback Cam Newton, sidelined last week with the
virus, will be starting Sunday against the Denver Broncos. He returned to practice Thursday and
looked like the top signal-caller he is.
