WHO'S HOT

MLB: The Detroit Tigers have the longest current winning streak in the majors at five games. Keep in mind they were favorites for all those games against lowly divisional opposition, K.C. and Minnesota.

CFL: The home team won the past six meetings between the Blue Bombers and Eskimoes. Winnipeg covered in five of those games.

MLB: The Brewers are 23-1 in Zack Greinke’s last 24 home starts. Milwaukee is a -150 fave over Pittsburgh Friday.

WHO'S NOT

MLB: The Texas Rangers. Against Seattle lately, anyway. The Rangers surrendered 31 runs in their past two meetings with the Mariners.

WNBA: The Washington Mystics haven’t won on the road this season (0-7). Oddly, they are 3-4 against the spread. They are 6.5-point dogs at New York Friday.

KEY STAT

909 – The number of yards Winnipeg’s defense has given up through two CFL games so far, worst in the league. They are 1-pt dogs at Edmonton Friday night with the total set at 45 - a relatively low number for three-down football.

GAME OF THE DAY

Braves at Mets (-150, 8.5)

NOTABLE QUOTABLE

Wynn Las Vegas sportsbook director John Avello, who would put the 1992 Dream Team as a 10-point favorite over this year's U.S. Olympic squad: “Everyone likes to throw around the bigger, faster, stronger argument when comparing past and present. All those elements don’t apply to this group (1992). They have the best guards, the best shooters, the best big men. If they played 10 times, (1992) would win eight of them.”

NOTES AND TIPS

Good sign: In a recent Angus Reid poll, Americans supported the legalization of betting on sports in all states. "In the online survey of a representative national sample of 1,017 American adults, three-in-five respondents (59%) support allowing people in any U.S. state to bet on sports. Support for this change is highest among men (68%) and respondents aged 18-to-34 (64%)."

If you're into 3-ball betting or daily match betting for PGA golf, you might want to take a look at who has the best scoring average for Round 2 on tour this year heading into Friday's action. Ricky Barnes, who sits in second at the John Deere Classic after shooting 7-under Thursday, ranks 90th in the second round.

Dodgers star center fielder Matt Kemp is expected to make his return to the lineup Friday. He was hitting .355 with 12 HRs and 28 RBIs before he injured his hamstring on May 30.

Fifteen of the 30 teams in MLB are within five games or fewer of their division leads and 19 are .500 or better.
