Ducks at Coyotes Under 5 1/2 minus $1.35  The total already is getting down to 5, but right now many books are showing 5 1/2 with heavy juice on the Under. It’s hard to fathom how there could be more than five goals scored in this matchup. The Ducks are averaging a puny 1.8 goals […]

Gone, but never forgotten. So many noteworthy baseball players died in 2020, including seven Hall of Famers. Only once before, in 1972, had so many baseball Hall of Famers died in a single year.  I’m very glad 2020 finally is finished, but I’ll remember these seven Hall of Famers because I grew up watching them.  Bob […]
