Bolt vs. Blake 200m Odds, USA vs. Australia Line, Preseason NFL Betting Intel

The Olympic quarterfinals men’s basketball odds are up.  In track and field it’s Usain Bolt vs. Yohan Blake in the 200 meter betting line.

So is the official betting podcast preview of this week’s NFLX.  Below are the men’s basketball odds including the USA vs. Australia and the US women a whopping favorite to win the gold.

But first a free MLB pick from the The Canadian Crew.

New York Yankees (-140) at Detroit Tigers  Wednesday at 7:05 p.m. ET

Anibal Sanchez will make his third start of the year for Detroit.  The right-hander was acquired in a trade with Miami, and he has solid if unspectacular numbers on the year (6-8, 3.99 ERA).  Sanchez was lit up in his first game as a Tiger, as the Jays torched him for five runs in six innings.  He bounced back in last week’s win over Cleveland, allowing two runs (just one earned) in six innings of work.  Sanchez has faced the Yankees just once in his career, tossing 5.2 shutout innings a couple of seasons ago.

The Yankees will counter with ace C.C. Sabathia.  The southpaw is chugging along as expected, going 11-3 with a 3.53 ERA this season.  He’s coming off a fantastic start against Seattle, allowing just three hits and three runs in a complete-game victory.  Sabathia added 10 strikeouts against the overwhelmed Mariners lineup.  He’s now allowed three runs or less in three of his past four starts and has 28 strikeouts in his last 28 innings.  Sabathia is already 2-0 with a 3.00 ERA in two starts against Detroit this year; he’s 17-12 with a 4.44 ERA in 34 career starts against the Tigers.

How Sanchez settles in with the Tigers over the long haul remains to be seen.  Sabathia is a much more sure thing, especially with the potent Yankees lineup backing him up.
