Game 1: Kentucky Wildcats (+5.5) at Texas A&M Aggies (-5.5) - 7:00 p.m. EST

Kentucky is playing some impressive football of late, but there's an interesting backstory to their meeting against Texas A&M that could be a detriment tonight. Kentucky coach Mark Stoops was once the defensive coordinator at Florida State, working under current A&M head coach Jimbo Fisher. This is the first time the two have faced off against one another, but you have to think Fisher gets the better of his understudy here. Kyle Field in College Station, TX should be fired up for the Saturday night primetime game, making life that much more difficult on the Wildcats. 

Game 2: Notre Dame Fighting Irish (-6.5) at Virginia Tech (+6.5) - 8:00 p.m. EST

Lane Stadium in Blacksburg, VA is one of the toughest venues in college football for opposing teams, so the No. 6 Fighting Irish will certainly have one of their biggest tests of the season. ND just lost stud lineman and team captain, Alex Bars, so look for that to be an obstacle in the hostile environment. For those bettors looking for the extra ROI-hit tonight, give some thought to taking VA Tech on the moneyline at +210. 

Game 3: New York Yankees (-) at Boston Red Sox (-116) - 8:15 p.m. EST

The Red Sox jumped out quick on the Yanks in Game 1 of the American League Divisional Series, but the visitors were able to make a valiant comeback -- Look for that momentum to carry over as David Price has struggled historically against most of these power righty-bats from the Yanks. Gary Sanchez, in particular, loves the sight of Price on the mound, as he has gone 6-for-13 with five homers against the lefty.
