The Draft

POWERED BY

Nothing gets us fired up on a Wednesday like the NFL releasing the 2021 schedule. Can’t wait for September.

Making Headlines

Soccer: Manchester City captured its third Premier League title in four seasons.

NCAAM: Five-star high school recruit Patrick Baldwin Jr. announced that he will play for his father at Milwaukee.

College baseball: The University of Nevada’s Tyler Bosetti set an NCAA Division I record by homering for the ninth consecutive game. 

Tonight’s Action

Athletics at Red Sox, 7:10 p.m. ET

Odds: Red Sox -148, Athletics +128 || O/U 9.5

Pick: Red Sox lefty Eduardo Rodriguez (5-0, 3.82 ERA) is set to face righthander James Kaprielian, who is making his first major league start for the Athletics and first appearance this season.

Sports Section likes Boston on the moneyline, and parlay it with the under to get the most value.

Shoutout: Yesterday, we asked subscribers to predict the winner of Heat-Celtics, the final score, and the leading scorer in the game. Miami won 129-121, but Boston’s Kemba Walker had a game-high 36.

Subscriber David Nagelberg (@SportsGuruDave) goes back-to-back. He had the Heat and was closest to the final score. No one predicated Walker would have the most points. Nice work (again), David!

Keep the picks coming, everyone!
