The No. 2 Clemson Tigers were eager to begin the season and prove themselves worthy of being one of this year’s football betting favorites. However, their performance in the season opener left a lot to be desired. Sure, the Tigers came out on top of the Auburn Tigers 19-13 but they didn’t exactly dominate. In fact it was one of the worst performances a Clemson team has given in over a year. It’s the first time in 11 games that the high powered Clemson offense failed to gain at least 500 yards in total offense, and the first time since the 2014 season that the Tigers failed to score 20 points minimum.

WADA has called for the ban as a result of a 103-page report from Canadian law professor Richard McLaren, who found evidence of systematic, state-supported cheating by Russia's athletes during the Sochi Winter Olympics. How would the Games be affected if the International Olympic Committee heeded WADA’s recommendation? Let’s imagine an alternate reality in which Russia did not attend the 2012 London Olympics.
With the Conference Finals right around the corner and with Cleveland sweeping their second straight playoff series; sports betting fans should begin to wonder if the Cavaliers are better than the Warriors right now.

Rockers Gene Simmons and Paul Stanley of KISS have Nothin’ to Lose if they bet on Arena Football League. They Sure Know Something because they chose Los Angeles instead of Detroit Rock City. LA’s previous AFL franchise The Avengers gave up the ghost in 2009 and were probably buried in a KISS Kasket. Unfortunately, the team has fared about as well as the KISS Demon did in the old WCW. The LA KISS finished 3-15 in their debut season of 2014 and 4-14 last season, and ended as the lowest scoring and second lowest scoring team in each respective season. If only they had Gene Simmons’s scoring prowess.
