With 4 straight wins coming out of the All Star Break, the Angels have played themselves back into the edge of the Wild Card race. They road the emotion of a tribute to the late LHP Tyler Skaggs over the weekend, scoring 37 runs in those 4 games. LA is enjoying another MVP caliber season from Mike Trout, who is hitting .305 with 30 HR and 75 RBI. Trout is questionable for Tuesday night with a calf injury.

    Ehlinger, Murray, Hurts highlight Big 12
    CFB - Oklahoma has won 25 of 27 Big 12 conference games over the past 3 years. The Sooners will feature Alabama QB transfer and former National Champion Jalen Hurts. The next best record is West Virginia at 18-9, a team featuring a new head coach in Neal Brown and just 9 returning starters. Texas figures to be the Sooners' closest competitor led by standout QB Sam Ehlinger who starred last year with a 146.8 QB Rating, 25 TD's and just 5 Interceptions.
    AL seeks 7th straight All Star Game Win
    MLB - Over the last 31 years, the American League has dominated the All Star Game, winning 24 times, with one tie. Since 1997, that domination is an unbelievable 18-3-1. Mike Trout and the AL All Stars will attempt to continue that domination to 7 straight wins Tuesday night at Progressive Field. The AL is a small -114 favorite with an over/under of 8.5 runs.
    Bell/Alonso Favorites in Home Run Derby
    MLB - With 7 of the 9 players with 25+ HR's skipping this year's Home Run Derby, including leading NL MVP candidates Christian Yelich and Cody Bellinger, the field is wide open. The Mets' Pete Alonso and Pirates' Josh Bell are favored by the oddsmakers with 7/2 and 3/1 odds respectively. Progressive Field tends to favor left-handed power hitters, so hitters like Joc Pederson or Carlos Santana could be sleepers.
    Turning around Florida State no quick fix
    CFB - In 2018, Willie Taggart's first as head coach of Florida State, the Seminoles plummeted to their worst record in 41 years at 5-7. FSU has a long road to make up to rejoin the elites in College Football. They rank 64th in the current StatFox CFB Power Ratings and trail defending National Champion Clemson by 39 points. This is not a familiar position for a program used to competing for National Championships.
