Want to start your sports day off right? Looking for some action along with the most exciting matchups of the day? There is an NFL game, a college game, some day baseball action and the WNBA Playoffs tip-off. Here is a brief look at the top four important matchups of the day along with future odds.

1)Cleveland at Baltimore (NFL), M&T Bank Stadium

The Browns (0-3) face the Ravens (2-1) at M&T Bank Stadium at 8:20pmET from Baltimore (NFL Network). The Browns fell at home to Buffalo last week, 24-14, while Baltimore came back to defeat New England at home on Sunday night, 31-30. Last year, Baltimore won both games including at home on a Saturday, 20-14. Baltimore is 9-1 ATS in home games after a win by 3 or less. The Ravens are a 12-point favorite with a total of 44.

2)Stanford at Washington,  CenturyLink Field, Seattle, Wash.

Both teams had byes last week though Stanford is coming off a huge win over USC at home. Last year,  Stanford (-20) routed Washington, 65-21 at home. Stanford has one of the best defensive lines in the nation, which has led to their 3-0 start and upset win over USC. Stanford has the running game led by Stepfan Taylor and an emerging quarterback in Josh Nunes. Washington will need a huge game from QB Keith Price.  Stanford is 4-0 ATS L4 in series.

This is the final game of a three-game series. Gio Gonzalez takes the mound for the Nationals against Tyler Cloud for the Phillies. Washington was just four games ahead of Atlanta in the NL East before Wednesday's results. But they have their ace on the mound in Gonzalez, who owns a 1.50 ERA in his last three starts. The Phils are barely alive for the final wild card spot but really are playing the spoiler's role. Nationals are 6-0 last 6 Thursday games. The Nats opened as a -130 favorite with a total of 7.5.
