For years, sports gambling 聽has been a major tenant of fandom around professional teams.
Some leagues ( NFL, NBA) have realized this and tried to at least find their piece of the pie in the millions of dollars wagered, spent and advertised on the business. Now it’s Major League Baseball’s turn to jump in.
According to the New York Post, an executive associated with a MLB team met with a bookmaker last week.
Authentic Mens Darian Thompson Jersey Verdict: Under. Buffalo seems extremely unlikely to be competing for much of anything at any point this season considering the state of their roster, and it doesn’t seem like the best idea to throw Allen to the wolves.
Josh Rosen, Cardinals Over/Under: 8.5 starts Is there anyone on the planet who doesn’t think Sam Bradford will get injured before he manages to start nine games? (Or that the Cardinals would really start Mike Glennon over Rosen if and when Bradford does get hurt?)聽

On that front, we have some news. The sports book Bovada.lv recently set over/under lines for how many games each of Baker Mayfield, Sam Darnold, Josh Allen, Josh Rosen, and Lamar Jackson will start during the 2018 season. Below, we’ll take a look at which side of each bet makes most sense to bet.聽 Baker Mayfield, Browns Over/Under: 9.5 starts This is a tough one to gauge. The Browns don’t have their bye until Week 10, and they return from that bye with a home game against the Bengals.
Sam Darnold, Jets Over/Under: 5.5 starts The Jets are still the Jets so maybe they just start Josh McCown or Teddy Bridgewater all season, but this seems pretty clear-cut. New York has six post-bye games, starting with Week 12 at home against New England. Unless New York plans to either keep Darnold on the bench all year (that would go over super well on the back pages of the New York Post and the Daily News ) or give him two road Avisail Garcia Jersey games as the first two starts of his career, this is an obvious over bet. Really, once the Jets get through their Jaguars-Broncos-Colts-Vikings stretch in Weeks 4-7, Darnold could make his debut at any time and I would not be at all surprise.
