Fresno State vs. Boise State

The Bulldogs are three-point favorites and the over-under for total points scored is 54 in the latest Boise State vs. Fresno State odds. However, with these teams still vying for a spot in the Mountain West Championship Game, this could be a tough game to handicap without some help. So before you make your Boise State vs. Fresno State picks and predictions, be sure to check out the simulations from the advanced computer model at SportsLine.

Fresno State vs Boise State Live

The SportsLine Projection Model simulates every FBS college football game 10,000 times, and those who have followed it have seen massive returns. Over the past three years, this proprietary computer model has generated a jaw-dropping $4,210 profit for $100 bettors on its top-rated point-spread picks.

And in Week 10, it absolutely nailed the biggest game of the season, recommending the Crimson Tide against the spread (-14), on the money line (-588) and hitting the under in Alabama’s 29-0 blowout of LSU. It also nailed its top-rated selection of Auburn (-3.5) over Texas A&M, helping the model finish the weekend on a strong 7-3 run on all top-rated picks. Anyone who has followed it is way up.

Now, the model has run its simulations and crunched the numbers for Fresno State vs. Boise State and the results are in. We can tell you the model is leaning over, but it has also locked in a strong point-spread selection that hits in well over 60 percent of simulations. You can only see that pick at SportsLine.

The model knows Fresno State is on a roll with wins and covers in its past seven games. In fact, its 8-1 record against the spread and has made it one of the most attractive plays of the 2018 college football season.

One big reason Fresno State has been so dominant: its defense. The Bulldogs are allowing just 307 yards per game and they’ve been stout against the run and the pass. They’ve held every opponent they’ve faced at or below their season averages in passing and rushing with the exception of Toledo, which averages 235 yards passing and managed 238 in a loss to Fresno State on Sept. 29. Combine that fact with the fact that they’ve forced a staggering 21 turnovers and it’s easy to see why they have the No. 2 scoring defense in college football.

However, it has been a while since Fresno State has been challenged by an opponent of Boise State’s caliber, so a cover on the road is no guarantee.

Boise State has built itself to compete in games where it looks like it might be out-manned. Quarterback Brett Rypien has played in plenty of marquee games as a four-year starter and is having his best statistical season to date. Rypien has six games under his belt this season where he has thrown for over 300 yards, at least two touchdowns and no interceptions. In those games, Boise State is 5-1.

He’s also 17-4 now in his career on the blue turf in Boise, so he might find a little extra motivation in being a home underdog for the first time in his career.

So, which side of the Fresno State vs. Boise State spread cashes in well over 60 percent of simulations? Visit SportsLine now to see which side you need to jump on Friday, all from the model that has returned over $4,000 in profit for $100 bettors.

Newcastle scored twice in the last 15 minutes as they came from behind to edge past Bath in a nine-try thriller.

The home side trailed 19-0 after just 17 minutes at the Rec as Sonatane Takulua, Rob Vickers and debutant DTH van der Merwe went over for Falcons.

But Matt Banahan, Semesa Rokoduguni, Charlie Ewels and Jonathan Joseph’s tries for Bath put them 32-19 ahead.

However Chris Harris’ score gave the visitors a chance and Joel Hodgson converted Mark Wilson’s try to win it.

  • Vunipola limps off as Saracens beat Sale
  • Ford kicks Leicester to victory at Quins

It is the first time Falcons have won in Somerset since October 2009, with Bath losing at home for only the second time in 2017.

Victory moves Dean Richards’ side level with Premiership leaders Saracens after three wins from their opening four matches, while it is a second defeat for Bath.

It could have been even more convincing for Newcastle, as Chris Cook had a try disallowed for straying in touch and Juan Pablo Socino was denied a score by a knock-on.

Bath coach Todd Blackadder had to cope without Freddie Burns, who had been set to make his first start for the club he supported as a boy after joining from Leicester but he was ruled out with a lead leg, prompting Banahan to move to full-back and Aled Brew to fill in at wing.

Canada skipper Van der Merwe profited from a skilful, low grubber kick from fly-half Craig Willis to score on his Falcons bow, while overlooked England duo Rokoduguni and Joseph proved their worth with solo second-half scores.

Their efforts only earned Bath two bonus points though, as Newcastle – beaten in Philadelphia by Saracens last time out – remain unbeaten in England since 15 April.

Newcastle director of rugby Dean Richards:

“I never, ever look at where we are [in the table] at this moment in time. I’ll look at it at the end of the season when there are 22 games in the bag and see where we are then.

“We threw the subs on with 20 to go and they produced the goods. It’s not a squad of just 15 players now. It’s a squad of 35-40 good players who can just turn it on for us when we need it.

“We knew, coming back from Philadelphia, how tight a group they are. They do everything together. Whatever happens they’ll fight for each other, which is ultimately what happened.”

Bath director of rugby Todd Blackadder:

“It’s just not good enough. Missed tackles, no physicality, one-off running and getting turned over. We were compounding error after error. We’re better than that. I know we are.

“At 32-19 it was really simple. We had the game in the bag but we continued to play and make simple errors, letting them back into the game.

“It’s so disappointing because that is not what we set out to do.”

Bath: Banahan; Rokoduguni, Joseph, Clark, Brew; Priestland, Cook; Auterac, Walker, Perenise, Charteris, Stooke, Ewels, Louw (c), Grant

Leicester Tigers vs Sale Sharks Live

Mark Jennings and Leicester prop Ellis Genge swapped tries before Marland Yarde went over on his Sale debut.

Jono Ross put Sale into a 27-23 lead after the break before Gareth Owen and Nick Malouf both touched down to seal an impressive comeback for the hosts.

  • Exeter beat Harlequins to go top of Premiership
  • Bath inflict seventh successive loss on London Irish

Leicester’s win was their sixth in succession in the Premiership and moved them up to third in the table, while Sale slipped to their sixth defeat of the campaign – although they had the consolation of a bonus point for their four tries.

Tries: Genge, Owen, Malouf, penalty try Cons: Ford 2 Pens: Ford 3
Sale (22) 27
Tries: B Curry, Jennings, Yarde, Ross Cons: De Klerk 2 Pen: De Klerk

Leicester Tigers scored two late tries in an enthralling second half to defeat Sale Sharks at Welford Road.

Yarde was making his first appearance for Sale since he joined from Harlequins earlier in November.

He impressed in his first game for the Sharks and his 38th-minute try sent Sale into the break with a narrow 22-20 lead, but he was yellow-carded late on as Sale fought to claw back what was only a three-point advantage for Leicester prior to Malouf running in.

Sale boss Steve Diamond was not on the touchline for the game after receiving a ban for comments made after their defeat by Exeter in October.

Diamond will be banned from the stadium for Sale’s next three games after he was deemed to have failed “to respect the authority of match referee Craig Maxwell-Keys”.

Louisville vs Syracuse

Louisville vs Syracuse Live Stream: Watch Cardinals vs Orange Online

The No. 13 Louisville Cardinals will look to build on their strong start to the season on Friday night in the Carrier Dome against the Syracuse Orange in the first ACC game of the year for both teams.

Louisville rolled over Charlotte 70-14 in its opener, moving up six spots in the AP poll. While the 49ers are one of the worst teams in the nation in just their second year of FBS play, eight first half touchdowns from electric quarterback Lamar Jackson was impressive nonetheless.

Syracuse began the Dino Babers era with a 33-7 win over FCS Colgate. Sophomore quarterback Eric Dungey completed 34 of his 40 pass attempts for 355 yards and two touchdowns in the opening victory.

The Cardinals feature a talented an ultra-athletic roster outside of Jackson and could challenge Florida State or Clemson in the ACC Atlantic, but can’t afford a loss to teams like Syracuse if they are to make a darkhorse run at the conference title. Syracuse is expected to be a fringe bowl team in 2016 and is a double-digit underdog to Louisville, although strange things have happened before in weeknight ACC games.

Friday night’s contest kicks off at 8:00 p.m. Eastern on ESPN 2, with full streaming details below.

Date: Friday, November 9
Start Time: 7:00p ET
Location: Syracuse, NY
Venue: Carrier Dome

All eyes will be on the Louisville quarterback in this game after his eight-touchdown performance in Week 1. The Heisman candidate won’t account for eight more touchdowns this week in all likelihood. However, he can make another Heisman statement against Dino Babers’ team that looks to make a statement on a nationally televised game.

The field is led by No. 1 Kaique Pacheco who has been dominant this season, recording an elite tour best four event wins, in addition to 14 Top-5 and 17 Top-10 finishes. Hot on Pacheco’s heels is 2017 PBR Rookie of the Year Jose Vitor Leme. Since the final regular-season elite tour event of 2018 in Nampa, where the Brazilian young gun was third, Leme has closed the gap on Pacheco by 455 points.

The tour’s Top 5 are rounded out by No. 3 Claudio Montanha Jr., No. 4 Luciano De Castro and No.5 Cody Teel.

In the Rookie of the Year race, a mere 225.83 points separate the top four contenders heading into World Finals week. Standings leader Keyshawn Whitehorse will look to maintain his No. 1 ranking, while No.2 Colten Jesse, No. 3 Alex Marcilio and No.4 Nathan Burtenshaw prepare to battle it out on the dirt inside of the home of the Las Vegas Golden Knights.

The 35 qualifiers via the world standings that will put it all on the line in the heart of the Las Vegas Strip for a chance at collecting their share of the more than $2.5 million in prize money are:

Joining these 35 men at World Finals are five qualifiers from the Real Time Pain Relief Velocity Tour.

Francisco Garcia Torres (Sal, Mexico) earned his spot as the top finishing international invite from the RVT Finals where he tied for twelfth. Paulo Lima (Bezerros, Brazil) and Michael Lane (Tazewell, Virginia) each secured a place as the Velocity Tour’s top two ranked riders not already within the Top 35 of the world standings. Luis Blanco (Iacanga, Brazil) clenched a berth after finishing third at the RVT Finals, while Juan Carlos Contreras’ (Huichapan, Mexico) fifth place effort also earned him an invite.

More than $2.5 million is at stake during the 2018 PBR World Finals including a $1 million bonus awarded to the World Champion, who also receives the coveted World Champion belt buckle.

Each rider will ride one bull per night during Rounds 1-5 from Wednesday through Sunday. Scores from the five rides will then be combined, and the Top 15 riders will advance to the championship round following the completion of Round 5 on Sunday, Nov. 11. The rider with the highest total score from the six rounds will earn the 25th PBR: Unleash the Beast World Finals event title and $250,000.

The first King in the Ring event of 2018 is expected to be as wide open as ever as the big boys return to the elimination event.

Eight super heavyweight kickboxers will showcase their knockout power in a series of bouts at Auckland’s YMCA Stadium on Friday night in a bid to find the last man standing.

With Paulo Lakai not returning to defend the title he won in 2015, a new champion will be crowned and Wellington’s Nato La’auli is determined to go one better after two runner-up finishes at heavyweight.

“The new boys that have come through, they’re a threat because I don’t know anything about them,” La’auli said. “The boys like Riki, Ata and Wayne are all heavy hitters and one punch from them could finish a fight. Each and every one of them is capable of being favourites.

“I’ve done enough of these to know that anything can happen but all I can do is be prepared as I possibly can.”

The King in the Ring is an eliminator series that began in 2011, with the winner having to defeat three opponents in one night.

The brainchild of six-time world kickboxing champion Jason Suttie, the tournament has proven to be a genuine pathway onto the global fight scene for several Kiwi athletes.

Three-time winner Israel Adesanya fought for the Glory world title and is now making waves in the UFC alongside former middleweight champion Dan Hooker.

Last year’s heavyweight winner Carlos Ulberg has recently signed a contract to compete in China, while former welterweight Brad Riddell has joined One FC’s kickboxing roster.

“It’s good for the rest of the world to see that for such a small country we’ve got some good fighters,” Suttie said.

“If you win King in the Ring over seven other fighters you’re ready to stand on the world stage.”

Like his competitors, La’auli has had his hands full juggling preparations for Friday’s event with his daily commitments.

As well as working in mental health support, he is also studying nursing full-time.

It has made for some extremely late nights at the gym but he credits his training under Suttie for helping instil the mindset to persevere.

“At the moment, because I do shift work I don’t finish until 11 o’clock. I’m at the 24/7 gym in Wellington at 11:30pm and I’m not home till about 1:30am,”La’auli said. “So it’s training your brain to do things that other people are not willing to do, that is what Jason has imparted on to me.”

Suttie also trains Tuitupou out of his Elite Thai Kickboxing gym in Auckland and there are high hopes for the 25-year-old 150kg powerhouse.

The ‘Titan’ is the least experienced fighter in the field with less than two years training but Suttie has been delighted with his progress.

“I’m just taking my time with him. He’s young, he’s had close to 20 fights now but he’s definitely going to be someone to watch,” Suttie said.

“He listens really well and he moves amazingly quick for someone his size.”

Suttie is obviously backing his fighters to make the final but he feels there is little separating the field.

“They’re pretty evenly matched and everyone in there really wants to prove themselves,” he said.

“There’s a lot of newcomers but to win three fights in one night is not easy. So if you can do that, you’re definitely worth looking at.”

KING IN THE RING SUPER IV

Thursday Night Football

Thursday Night Football Live : Stream, Prediction, Preview, Statistics to know for Pittsburgh Steelers Vs Carolina Panthers.

This week’s edition of ‘Thursday Night Football’ should be a damn good one. The 5-2-1 Pittsburgh Steelers are rolling and once again look like one of the best teams in the AFC, and on Thursday night they play host to the 6-2 Carolina Panthers, who look like one of the best teams in the NFC.

Pittsburgh leads the AFC North and surely wants to avoid a loss that could knock them backward if the Bengals manage to get a win on Sunday. The Panthers, meanwhile, are still a game behind the 7-1 Saints, and need a win in order to keep pace in the NFC South and potentially get a home game or two in the playoffs.

Thursday Night Football 2018 Live Stream NFL

Luckily for football fans, we’ll get to see a ton of stars on both sides of the ball do battle, in particular some of the best quarterbacks (Ben Roethlisberger, Cam Newton), running backs (James Conner, Christian McCaffrey), and wide receivers (Antonio Brown, JuJu Smith-Schuster) in the NFL. That’s a whole lot of offensive talent on the field, going back and forth trying to score against a couple strong defenses playing well of late.

Defenses may not be quite as “scared” of Conner as they are of Bell, but Conner has been more effective on the ground (4.7 yards per carry compared to Bell’s 4.0 last year) despite facing stacked boxes with eight-plus defenders far more often than Bell did a year ago. According to NFL.com’s NextGen Stats, 19.94 percent of Bell’s carries in 2017 came against an eight-man box or more, while 30.46 percent of Conner’s carries have come against eight-plus-man boxes.

Conner could be set up for a tough night against the Carolina defense this week, however. It’d be his first tough night in a while. The Panthers rank seventh in rush defense DVOA, per Football Outsiders, and have been one of the toughest defenses in terms of holding down running backs in the passing game. They’ve allowed 33 catches to running backs, sixth-fewest in the NFL, and just 217 receiving yards to the position, which ranks third-fewest. Then again, Conner just tore up a Baltimore defense that is one of the NFL’s best against running backs to the tune of 163 total yards and two touchdowns. That was four days ago. So, perhaps he’s just matchup-proof at this point.

Tight ends Vance McDonald and Jesse James, meanwhile, could play sizable roles in the passing game as well. The Panthers have allowed more catches by tight ends this season than any team in football, and a 127.84 passer rating on throws to the position — fourth-highest in the league.

The Steelers’ ability to find great success in the absence of Le’Veon Bell has been one of the season’s biggest surprises, but the Panthers’ emergence as one of thefunnest offenses in the NFL is also on that list. The hiring of Norv Turner as offensive coordinator was panned in many circles given the stodgy nature of his offense in recent stops, but Turner has reinvented himself and has been one of the small handful of most creative play-callers in the league this season.

Turner has figured out the best ways to use Cam Newton, Christian McCaffrey, Devin Funchess, and D.J. Moore, and did an excellent job reincorporation Greg Olsen on the fly after the star tight end returned from a recurrence of his foot injury that cropped up in the first game of the season and kept him out for several weeks after.

McCaffrey was in a full-on timeshare last season and occasionally went full games without making an impact. That has not been the case this year, as he’s largely been used as a true feature back, averaged 19.8 touches per game. He has not suffered a dip in efficiency even with the rising usage (12.3 touches per game last year), and is in fact averaging more yards per touch this season than he did a year ago (5.6 per touch to 5.5 per touch).

Pittsburgh actually ranks first in DVOA against running backs in the passing game this season, per Football Outsiders, and has allowed only 32 completions for 195 yards, two touchdowns, and an interception on 45 throws to players at the position. The Panthers move McCaffrey all around the formation and manufacture touches for him on jet sweeps and screens so it’s possible he could still break a long-gainer if they figure out a way to use the Pittsburgh defense’s aggressiveness against it.

Conversely, the Steelers’ defense has struggled badly against tight ends, indicating that Greg Olsen, who has been heating up, could be in line for a big night. Olsen was quiet for a couple weeks after returning from injury but has gone for 4-56-1 and 6-76-1 over the past two weeks. His ability to stretch the field vertically up the same is as perfect a fit for Newton’s playing style as it has always been, and they have found a rhythm over the past two weeks. The Steelers, meanwhile, are 26th in DVOA against tight ends, and have allowed 53 catches for 584 yards and four touchdowns to the position. They’ve been torn up over the middle of the field, where Olsen tends to eat.

On the perimeter, there should be a one-on-one battle waged between Funchess and Joe Haden for most of the night. Funchess is having his best NFL season, averaging career-highs in receptions (4.5) and yards (55.6) per game, as well as catch rate (65.5 percent). His season-highs of seven catches and 77 yards don’t jump off the page but Newton has been able to count on him when he needs a first down or drive-extending play, as 28 of his 36 grabs have gone for first downs, per SIS. Among 146 players with 25-plus targets, that first-down rate of 77.8 percent ranks 15th in the league.

Beyond those three players, Newton does not have a particular target he seems to place a ton of trust in. Jarius Wright, Torrey Smith, rookie D.J. Moore, and second-year man Curtis Samuel have all had their moments, but none has carved out a regular place in the offense just yet. Turner has been able to design ways for Moore and Samuel in particular to get into open space, which is key for players with their skill sets. Leveraging the attention paid to McCaffrey and Olsen in order to get them an opportunity at a pop play would be a wise idea against the Steelers.

After covering Heartless (John Peck/Hale & Wallgren Bull Co.) for 87 points in Round 1, De Souza rebounded from a Round 2 buckoff early Saturday night with an 88-point, round winning ride aboard Handsome Jeff (K-C/Jo-Z Bucking Bulls) in the championship round.

For his efforts, he earned $72,600, including the $50,000 RVT Champion bonus.

Matching his rise up the RVT standings, De Souza also gained ground in the PBR world standings, rising to No. 34 after beginning the event No. 43. Courtesy of his newfound ranking inside the Top 35, De Souza has qualified for his career-first PBR World Finals.

For the second time in his career, Chase Outlaw (Hamburg, Arkansas) won the RVT Finals event title, earning $29,600 and 320 world points.

After winning Round 1 Friday night, Outlaw covered his eighth straight bull in Round 2, making the 8 aboard SW 506 (Winston/Slaughter/Melton Bull Co.) for 87.5 points. His streak, however, came to an end in the championship round when he was dispatched by Max Bet (Owens/Wyatt/Smith) in 5.11 seconds.

Compliments of the win, Outlaw is now ranked No. 22 in the world, qualifying for his seventh consecutive world finals.

Throughout the past month, Outlaw has mounted a historic climb up the world standings. While reconstructive shoulder surgery prevented the Arkansas cowboy from competing the entirety of the first half, he was forced back to the sidelines just two months after making his 2018 debut when he was involved in a horrific wreck at Cheyenne Frontier Days where he sustained 30 facial fractures.

Since returning to competition on Oct. 6 at the Milwaukee, Wisconsin 25th PBR: Unleash The Beast event, Outlaw has risen 54 spots in the world standings, up from No. 76, collecting 865 world points.

Blanco, followed his 88-point trip in Round 1 on Yatesy Down Under (Star E Ranch/Just Have Faith Ranch) with 81 points on Anonymous (Broken Arrow Bucking Bulls) in the championship round, netting 152.5 world points and $14,700.

His qualification to the most prestigious event in the PBR, the fourth of his career, came as one of two top event finishers not ranked inside the Top 35.

For Lima, his finish was backed by two 84.5-point efforts coming aboard Look Back At It (CO Cattle CO./Bob Whisnant) in Round 1 and Red Man (Halpain & Roth) in Round 2. The 30-year-old Brazilian collected 62.5 points and $7,700 for his efforts.

Rising to No. 3 in the RVT standings, Lima punched his ticket to the World Finals for the fourth time in his career as one of the top two riders in the RVT standings not ranked within the Top 35.

Juan Carlos Contreras (Huichapan, Mexican) finished fifth at the RVT Finals, earning him his second appearance at the World Finals as the second top finishing rider at the event not inside the Top 35.

Collecting $4,900 and 40 world points, Contreras’ efforts were helped by back-to-back rides in the first two rounds, an 83-point ride on Memory Maker (Team KNK/The Jaynes Gang) in Round 1 and an 82-point trip on Real Gun (Cord McCoy/G-G) in Round 2.

Despite going 0-for-2 at the event, Lane qualified for his second career World Finals via the Velocity Tour standings. Concluding the 2018 season No. 4, Lane delivered one of the most consistent seasons on the tour, recording an event win and eight Top 10 efforts.

Tying for twelfth with Mason Taylor (Maypearl, Texas), PBR Mexico invite Francisco Garcia Torres (Sal, Mexico) qualified for his career-first World Finals as the top finishing international invite. Torres’ finish, which earned him 15 world points, was backed by his 86-point trip aboard Mr. Valentine (Rickey West Bucking Bulls) in Round 1.

Round 2 also concluded the American Bucking Bull Inc. (ABBI) Derby and Wild Card Classic competitions. Over the past two days 90 3-year-old Derby bulls and 90 3- and 4-year-old Wild Card bulls went head-to-head in hopes of securing their spot at the top.
