Game 1: Houston Astros (-130) @ Boston Red Sox (+116), 7:05 p.m. EST

Even though the Astros are waltzing into Fenway as the clear favorites to beat a Red Sox team that finished the regular season with the most wins in baseball, David Price and the Sox are bound to take one at home before heading back to Houston. 

Sure, Price seems to be cursed when it comes to the postseason, but against all odds tonight, don't be surprised if he finally captures that elusive first career post-season win against the Astros. 


Game 2: Kansas City Chiefs (+160) @ New England Patriots (-190), 8:20 p.m. EST 

Speaking of shooting stars, Chiefs quarterback Patrick Mahomes has been the most explosive quarterbacks in all of the football through the first five weeks of the NFL season. Now he's got a chance to test his mettle against the consensus GOAT quarterback Tom Brady in his own backyard tonight. 

Despite being one of two undefeated teams aside from the Los Angeles Rams, the Chiefs don't look like they're on the quite the same level as LA. The KC offense is unbelievable, but the porous defense will catch up to them tonight. The Chiefs stunned the Patriots in last year's season opener and this is a revenge game. Boston teams roll.
