Sports Equinox: Locks of the Day for Sunday, October 27

David Kaestle

This Sunday, Oct. 27, the 2019 Sports Equinox will take place. This is a special day for sports fans as, assuming there isn't a four-game sweep in the World Series, all four major American sports leagues will play on the same night.

And if you're looking to place some wagers based around this celebratory day in professional sports, FanDuel Sportsbook has you covered.

While there are plenty of betting options available, FanDuel Sportsbook has a free-to-play contest in which fans will choose the winners of all of the games being played on Sunday, Oct. 27. The entire pot, which has already risen to 345K and counting, is guaranteed. Any fan who correctly picks at least 20 of the 26 winners will split the pot.

With that in mind, let's take a look at four games that you could put in permanent marker when participating in the contest.

1. NBA: Charlotte Hornets vs Los Angeles Lakers

Sports Equinox Lock: Los Angeles Lakers
The Charlotte Hornets are projected to be one of the NBA's worst teams and when you look at them on paper, you can quickly decipher why. Void of any notable talent, the Hornets will be going up against arguably the best duo the NBA has to offer in Los Angeles Lakers' forwards Anthony Davis and LeBron James. Additionally, the Lakers will be at home and will almost assuredly be heavy favorites in this one.

2. NFL: Cleveland Browns vs New England Patriots

Sports Equinox Lock: New England Patriots
The New England Patriots have proven to be the NFL's best team through the first seven weeks of the season, and nothing is likely to change on Sunday against the Cleveland Browns, a team that has been nothing short of a disappointment this year. The Patriots have the best odds to win the Super Bowl and come into this game as 13-point favorites, according to FanDuel Sportsbook. Baker Mayfield and his NFL-leading 11 interceptions could be in for quite a long day in Foxborough, facing a Patriots defense that has dominated opponents so far this season.

3. NFL: Cincinnati Bengals vs Los Angeles Rams

Sports Equinox Lock: Los Angeles Rams
The Cincinnati Bengals have proven to be one of the NFL's worst teams, coming into Sunday's contest with the Los Angeles Rams as 13-point underdogs, according to FanDuel Sportsbook. Facing a Rams team coming off an impressive 37-10 win in Week 7, the winless Bengals could be 0-8 come the afternoon of Oct. 27.

4. NHL: Florida Panthers vs Edmonton Oilers

Sports Equinox Lock: Edmonton Oilers
Edmonton Oilers star Connor McDavid is one of the best young players in the NHL. His team won seven of its first 10 games this season and the Florida Panthers have floundered to start the year. Playing at home, where the Oilers won four straight to begin their 2019 campaign, this one could end up being another W for Edmonton.
