Jets vs. Giants prediction, line: Take the underdog

According to an internet meme, the black cat that took the field during Monday night’s Giants-Cowboys game ran three times for 114 yards and a touchdown. Saquon Barkley’s top rushing total in a game at MetLife Stadium this season is 107 yards, and Le’Veon Bell’s highest single-game rushing performance on that turf is 70 yards.

This illustration isn’t meant as a shot at Barkley or Bell, rather as a caution to viewers that if the cat doesn’t make another appearance on Sunday afternoon, there probably won’t be a lot to watch when the 2-7 Giants and 1-7 Jets meet.

In terms of betting the game, as you can imagine, it’s hard to make a case for either team. The Jets are decimated on defense and can’t stop anybody, even the previously winless and tanking Dolphins. The Giants have some of their better-known defensive players available but can’t stop anybody, either. They have given up at least 27 points in all but one game.

Sam Darnold has been a ghost-seeing, off-the-back-foot-interception-throwing disaster the past three weeks. Daniel Jones has looked better than Darnold, but he has thrown eight interceptions, lost eight fumbles and been sacked 26 times in seven starts plus a few minutes of mop-up duty. And he will be without Sterling Shepard and probably Evan Engram.

So how to pick this mess? Well, the Jets have the worst loss (to Miami) but also have the best win between the teams, their 24-22 victory over the Cowboys. But the main reason for this selection is the point spread, as Jets backers already are ahead 2¹/₂ to 0.

The pick: Jets, +2¹/₂.

Kansas City Chiefs (-6) over TENNESSEE TITANS: This line climbed a few points after Patrick Mahomes practiced Wednesday. Main reason for hesitancy on the Chiefs is memory of home losses in early October in which the defense was run over by the Colts and Texans. Can Derrick Henry do enough of that here to keep it close? Tennessee ranks 18th in the NFL in rushing, so the answer is probably not.

CLEVELAND BROWNS (-3) over Buffalo Bills: Baker Mayfield shaved his handlebar mustache after last week’s loss at Denver because he said he “doesn’t deserve to wear it.” Odell Beckham Jr. is pouting because Mayfield won’t thrown him the ball when he’s not open. Rookie coach Freddie Kitchens already is a goner, many say. Yet the 2-6 Browns are still favored over the 6-2 Bills despite more than 75 percent of public money being bet on Buffalo. That suggests the books have sharp money liability on Cleveland.

Arizona Cardinals (+4¹/₂) over TAMPA BAY BUCCANEERS: Even when Jameis Winston plays great, the Bucs find ways to lose, as they did last week in Seattle in a horrible bad beat for Bucs backers. Coach Bruce Arians goes up against his former team here, but he won’t recognize it with Kyler Murray and Kenyan Drake getting comfortable with coach Kliff Kingsbury’s Air Raid offense. Cardinals make the long trip but have had three extra days’ rest, and the Bucs just took a long flight home, as well.

Atlanta Falcons (+13¹/₂) over NEW ORLEANS SAINTS: In this season of spreads jumping into the 20s, was hoping to at least get two full touchdowns here. Still the Falcons lead the NFL in passing by a wide margin (316.8 yards per game), and that gives hope for a back-door cover if they can keep it reasonably close.

CINCINNATI BENGALS (+10) over Baltimore Ravens: Could be a bit of a letdown/lookahead spot for the Ravens, who crushed the Patriots and next have the Texans, Rams and 49ers lined up. Winless Bengals have covered two of three spreads in this vicinity, and there should be some excitement for Ryan Finley’s first start.

Detroit Lions (+2¹/₂) over CHICAGO BEARS: It’ll be Chicago weather, mid-40s and gusty, and that normally would prompt a Bears pick over the indoor Lions. But the Bears offense has been so bad, Mitchell Trubisky wants the team to turn off the TVs in Halas Hall so he doesn’t have to hear people talk about them. So the weather could hinder them, though they caught a break with Matthew Stafford being ruled out with a back injury. The line skyrocketed to Bears -6 ¹/₂ on Sunday morning with the news of Stafford’s absence

Miami Dolphins (+11) over INDIANAPOLIS COLTS: Indianapolis was hoping to have Jacoby Brissett back after he left last week’s 26-24 loss in Pittsburgh with a knee injury, but it will be Brian Hoyer under center. The line strikes as too large against a Miami team that has covered four games in a row. The Colts’ wins this season have come by two, three, six, seven and two points.

Carolina Panthers (+5¹/₂) over GREEN BAY PACKERS: Kyle Allen now can operate without the possibility of Cam Newton returning to take back his job. Like this Christian McCaffrey attack versus a Green Bay team that has allowed at least 22 points for six games in a row.

PITTSBURGH STEELERS (+3¹/₂) over Los Angeles Rams: The Rams come in off a bye, but before that were easy wins over the Falcons and Bengals. It will be more than a month since their last competitive game (a 20-7 home loss to the 49ers), and they may not be primed for the level of combat a game against the Steelers demands.

Minnesota Vikings (+3) over DALLAS COWBOYS: It’s the third prime-time game in a row for the overexposed Cowboys. Even with WR Adam Thielen out, happy to take the small headstart with the Vikings, who have covered nine of their past 10 versus Dallas.

Monday

Seattle Seahawks (+6) over SAN FRANCISCO 49ERS: Seattle has won outright in both games in which it has been an underdog this season (+4 at Pittsburgh, +1 at Cleveland). The Hawks have scored at least 27 points in seven of their past eight games. Undefeated records have expiration dates, and the 49ers’ 8-0 mark may be coming close to that.

Best bets: Cardinals, Steelers, Seahawks.
Lock of the week: Cardinals (Locks 3-6 in 2019).
Last week: 3-11 overall, 1-2 Best Bets.
Thursday: Raiders (W).

KSI vs Logan Paul 2 LIVE RESULTS: UK start time, TV channel, live stream, undercard for TONIGHT’S YouTube boxing bout – The Sun

KSI and Logan Paul are finally face off in their huge rematch TONIGHT.

The YouTube sensations fought to a draw in their first bout at the Manchester Arena, but this time it will be a pro boxing fight – meaning no headguards.

  • 60 million tuned in for first fight
  • Fight card taking place from STAPLES Center in Los Angeles
  • TV/live stream: Sky Sports Box Office
  • Undercard includes Billy Joe Saunders and Devin Haney
  • Saunders to fight a 2am

Follow ALL of the latest updates below…

  • Surely AJ has bigger things to worry about?

  • If Logan Paul really wants to become heavyweight champion of the world, I hope he fights this dude…

  • Terrifying super-middleweight Diego Pacheco up next.

    Poor Aaron Casper could end up as a friendly ghost if the ruthless 18-year-old clips him clean.

    Pacheco already has a 6-0 record with 5 KOs and Casper has already lost 3 of his 8 bouts.

  • Rios said: “I give myself a 6 or 7 out of 10, I made some mistakes that top-rank fighters would capitalise against me.

    “I was sittting down on my punches but I never expected the big right hand to finish the fight.”

    The popular super-bantamweight is too modest to call out a rival but he trusts promoters Golden Boy will get him a big one soon.

  • A monster right hand was the Rios honeyshot that finished brave Hugo Berrio.

    The arrow-like single shot made Berrio's poor little left earlobe shake as he collapsed to the canvas.

    Ronny Rios gets the round four TKO win and moves to 31-3 with 16 inside the distance now.

KSI vs Logan Paul 2: How many rounds are they fighting, what gloves are they wearing, what happens if it is a draw? – The Sun

IT'S time for the talking to stop as KSI and Logan Paul enter the ring once again.

More than twelve months on from their amateur showdown in Manchester, the YouTube pair are ditching the helmets and going professional for their rematch in LA.

How many rounds are they fighting?

THIS fight will count on the pro record of both men, who are each making their debut.

The first bout featured the fighters wearing headguards, but they will be discarded with the bout a fully professional affair.

Just as in the first encounter though, the two men will box over six three-minute rounds.

What gloves are they wearing?

IN their first fight, both competitors agreed to use 12oz gloves.

These are the size most often used for amateur boxing fights between the middleweight and heavyweight divisions.

Now that the headguards are gone, 10oz gloves will be used in the rematch which is being fought at cruiser (200lbs).

These lighter mitts allow for faster hands and have less padding – so both KSI and Logan will feel the force of those punches more than they did a year ago.

What happens if it is a draw?

IF there is no stoppage during the allotted 18 minutes, the fight will  go the distance to the end of the sixth round.

If that happens, the judges scorecards will be taken into consideration.

Boxing judges scores are determined by who they believe did better work in a round, taking into account any knockdowns.

Each round is scored and then added together – the total's are then compared to see who wins the bout.

A winner will then be announced, but there is always the possibility of another draw – and potentially a Logan Paul vs KSI 3.

Reiss Nelson is out injured for the visitors who will all but guarantee their place in the knockout stages with a win.

New Zealand vs Wales rugby: Kick off time, live stream free, TV channel and teams for Rugby World Cup bronze final – The Sun

It will be played at the Tokyo Stadium.

What TV channel is New Zealand vs Wales on and can I live stream it?

Coverage is set to get underway at 8.30am.

To stream the game live, head to the ITV Hub or create an account on TV Player.

Can I watch New Zealand vs Wales for free?

ITV1, the ITV Hub and TV Player are all free for UK viewers.

But whichever option you choose, you must have a valid TV licence.

Teams

What they said

Wales head coach Warren Gatland: "There are a few guys who hopefully want to go out and prove a point that perhaps they should have had more rugby in this tournament.

"It's a good position for them to be in. It's a position for us to hopefully be positive about the changes in giving players a chance.

"It (selection) wasn't really difficult at all.

"We wanted to give some players a chance.

"We feel like Tomos Williams deserves a chance, to see Rhys Patchell at 10 because, going forward, there is Gareth Anscombe's injury and Dan Biggar is not always available to Wales given his commitments [with Northampton] in England.

"Owen Watkin deserves a chance and then the back three were really the last three standing.

"It's great to see Owen Lane get a chance to play. He was very unlucky not to be in the squad in the first place.

"Hallam gets a chance at full-back, a position where we potentially see his future.

"We realise that this will probably be the last World Cup game for some of the guys.

"We recognise that and we've just made a couple of changes to freshen the legs as well."

New Zealand head coach Steve Hansen: "This was a tough team to select because, as always, everyone wanted to play.

"But with a short turnaround and the nature of the tournament, we feel that this is the right team for this occasion."

  • Here is the New Zealand team then.

    And it is that man Kieran Read's final appearance for the All Blacks.

    The 126-cap No8 bows out after 11 years at the top and two World Cup victories.

    Reiko Ioane comes in on the wing after being snubbed for George Bridge in the previous rounds.

    Scott Barrett is in at lock instead of flanker – as he probably should have been against England.

    And in the back row there is no Ardie Savea, but Shannon Frizell comes in at blindside while Sam Cane returns at openside flanker.

  • Fans are already gathering outside the Tokyo Stadium.

  • This is the last time we'll see the red jersey at the World Cup for four years.

  • It is a sign of the lack of depth Wales have that they are so depleted today.

    This World Cup campaign has been so decimated by injuries you are almost close to a world class XV just looking in the treatment room.

    Wales fans might just wonder what the result in that suffocating 19-16 loss to South Africa might have been with a full strength side.

    Toby Faletau, Gareth Anscombe were ruled out before the tournament.

    Liam Williams and Josh Navidi were both out for the Springboks.

    George North pulled his hamstring during the game.

    Now Tomas Francis, Aaron Wainwright and Leigh Halfpenny are all out after picking up injuries.

    It’s a very different-looking Wales side taking the field today and perhaps a glimpse into the future.

    In comes Owen Lane, 21, who is a late call-up and made his Wales debut in the World Cup warm-up match against Ireland.

    Rhys Patchell stars at fly half, while Tomos Williams gets the nod at No9.

    Skipper Alun Wyn Jones plays in his final World Cup game, bringing his test cap tally to 143.

    He can equal Richie McCaw's record of 148 if he plays in all Wales' Six Nations games next year.

  • Good morning, bore da and welcome to the live blog for Wales’ bronze medal match-up against New Zealand.

    It’s the end of the road and the end of this campaign for several huge figures in rugby, let alone their respective countries.

    Rugby colossus Kieran Read bids the international game farewell this morning.

    The same can be said for coaches Steven Hansen and Warren Gatland.

    The two Kiwis have so much in common and there will be a mutual respect and a few beers shared after today’s match in Tokyo.

    Hansen, of course, cut his teeth in international management as Wales boss after following Graham Henry.

    It did not go well though, he lost 10 on the bounce at one point.

    But Hansen went on to win the big one four years ago at Twickenham with the All Blacks becoming the first nation to win the World Cup twice in a row.

    Gatland has simply worked miracles with such sparse resources.

    He has won three Six Nations Grand Slams in 2008, 2012 and 2019.

    That is not to forget his two stints as Lions boss with a third to come in 2021.

    But most importantly he has instilled a huge fear factor back into Welsh rugby that so long eluded them.

    Goodbye to two gods of the game.
