Just curious if anyone bets on the NFL preseason games. If so I will post some tools to help with preseason games and info like... Depth chart links

I like to bet on the NFL preseason and think there is some good value to be found in some games. Agree or Disagree? Cole

Detroit/Arizona over 4.5 even: Last night in the opener of this 3 game series, Miguel Montero hit a go-ahead 2 run single that proved to be the game winner as the Arizona Diamondbacks (44-57) came from behind to edge the Detroit Tigers (55-42) 5-4 at Chase Field. Chase Anderson did not factor in the decision but hurled 6 quality innings, while Eury De La Rosa earned his second win in relief. Addison Reed pitched a scoreless 9th for his 24th save in 29 opportunities (.828) and Aaron Hill hit a solo shot while driving in 3. Rick Porcello also did not factor in the decision but lasted 7 strong yielding 3 runs on 5 hits. Ian Krol blew his 3rd save opportunity and Phil Coke took the loss falling to 1-2. These teams meet later this afternoon under the air conditioned retractable roof in game 2 with temperatures forecast to soar above 110. Manager Kirk Gibson has to feel a little more confident about his job security now that the D-Backs are well out of the NL West cellar. Trevor Cahill (1-6 5.63) takes to the mound in search of his first win since April 23rd which was in relief. Last week the 26 year old right-hander factored a no decision while giving up 3 runs on 4 hits in 5 IP, his first start since 4/13. Cahill will face a Tigers lineup that leads the AL with a .278 batting average second in the majors only behind Colorado (.281). Averaging 4.8 runs per contest, they've slacked off a bit in power as their 100 HR ranks 6th in the league. Victor Martinez (.322 21 56) will play a couple of games in this series at first base. Detroit's regular DH is 5th in the AL in batting, however is just 3 for his last 19 (.158) over the last few weeks despite having surpassed expectations with some 65 games remaining. Miguel Cabrera (.313 14 77) may not be having a triple crown caliber season, but has hit safely in 5 of his last 6 (.417) and is heating up when the Tigers need him most. Ian Kinsler (.295 11 53) shook off a recent 0 for 20 slump and has now hit in 3 straight putting up impressive numbers out of the 2 hole. JD Martinez (.327 13 44) is showing no signs of slowing down hitting around .360 in July. Torii Hunter (.275 14 59) has a 5 game hitting streak and will be one of many key pieces down the stretch determining the Tigers' postseason fate. Detroit counters with Anibal Sanchez (6-4 3.22) who is coming off a rough start in a loss to Cleveland last week. The 30 year old Venezuelan righty surrendered 4 runs on 6 hits in 6 innings pitched despite striking out 7. Sanchez faces a Diamondbacks lineup that is starting to shake its offensive doldrums while receiving consistent pitching winning 4 of their last 5. Arizona is hitting .256 collectively while averaging right around 4 runs per contest. Paul Goldschmidt (.307 18 65) continues to be the cornerstone of the offense even though he has struck out 100 times in 374 at bats. Montero (.263 11 58) has been hot and cold at times, but has come through with multiple game winning hits. A couple of more could narrow the gap into contention as the snakes trail the NL Wildcard by 10 games though there's still plenty of baseball left. Aaron Hill (.251 8 48) is currently on a 7 game hitting streak (.407) and seems to have turned the corner on putting too much pressure on himself that led to an ineffective first half. Martin Prado (.272 4 36) has struggled at times especially when it comes to killed rallies with RISP. Chris Owings (.277 6 21) looked to be on the trading block and has not played in almost a month due to a shoulder injury. The D Backs really need left handed pitching and despite their troubles in the rotation do have a deep bench. Another bargain of a price in the desert this afternoon as one team continues to hold their grip in the postseason chase while the other could use a run to put themselves in position. While the ball carries well indoors, the deepest part of the park to left and right center at 413 could pose a challenge for hitters, however both of these clubs have balanced power throughout their lineups. Cahill could be prone this afternoon to the meat of the Tigers' lineup, while Sanchez has been inconsistent and not nearly as sharp as earlier in the campaign. On paper this game just looks like another interleague matchup with 2 clubs heading in opposite directions. We look at it as a chance to hit our 9th win over the last 11. Best of luck however you play!

I thought I would try and drum up a Trivia questions thread to see how smart we are... However With the internet at our fingertips, it would be to easy to just look up the answer and post it. So all I can ask is if you don't "Know" the answer and you have to look it up, please don't post it.. But if you "KNOW" it, please post it... (I figure as smart as the folks here at BTB are, it won't take long for someone to answer). Once we have an answer, I find another question to ask or if someone has a good stump-er out there, feel free to post it.... Let's see how smart we really are... OK... since this occurred on my Birthday (WRONG YEAR - right date) I'll start with this one: Who hit the "Homer in the Gloamin" on September 28, 1938?
