Seahawks vs Packers

The Seattle Seahawks will host the Green Bay Packers in a matchup of surprisingly mediocre NFC clubs. But despite the teams’ disappointing records, both squads have players who could have big fantasy days.

Still, not every player belongs in your lineup. Here’s who you should start and sit in Packers vs. Seahawks:

STARTS
Both quarterbacks. Aaron Rodgers hasn’t been the fantasy juggernaut that he’s been in years past, but he’s still among the best options at the position. Russell Wilson, meanwhile, has turned things on after a slow start, throwing for 14 touchdown passes in his last five games. Both are QB1 options this week.

Aaron Jones, RB, Packers. Jones quickly has risen into the RB1 conversation, thanks to his output in his last three games: 86 rushing yards and a TD in Week 8, 75 yards in Week 9 and 145 yards with two scores in Week 10. Don’t be scared by the Seahawks defense, either, as this once-formidable unit now is middle of the road against the run.

Tyler Lockett, WR, Seahawks. Lockett won’t put up gaudy numbers, but he’s a worthy WR2/FLEX nonetheless. He has six games of at least 50 receiving yards this season to go along with seven touchdowns. He belongs in your lineup.

Davante Adams, WR, Packers. Adams has nine TD receptions through nine games, putting him among the best fantasy wideouts in the game. He’s a weekly start regardless of matchup.

Jimmy Graham, TE, Packers. Graham is questionable for this game with a knee injury, but should be in your lineup if he’s healthy. No longer the dominant tight end he once was, Graham still is one of the best options at fantasy’s shallowest position.

SIT
Both defenses. Both the Packers and the Seahawks could light up the scoreboard in this game. As such, neither defense should be in your lineup. There are better options.

Seahawks running backs. Chris Carson is back after missing Week 10 with an injury, but he’ll have to fight for carries with Rashaad Penny and Mike Davis. Until this backfield becomes less crowded, we can’t recommend starting any Seattle running backs.

Randall Cobb, WR, Packers. Cobb, who has a hamstring injury, didn’t travel with the team after also sitting out Week 10 against the Miami Dolphins. Even if he plays, he’s not productive enough to warrant starting. Look elsewhere.

Marquez Valdes-Scantling, WR, Packers. We like Valdes-Scantling’s long-term potential, but right now he’s too boom-or-bust to trust in your lineup. Don’t think about dropping him, though.

Packers vs Seahawks

Packers vs Seahawks :

Traditional powers in must-win mode face off on Thursday Night Football as the Seattle Seahawks host the Green Bay Packers. It’s an 8:20 p.m. ET kickoff from CenturyLink Field. At 4-4-1, Green Bay can ill afford another loss in its uphill climb to pass the Bears and Vikings in the NFC North. On the other side of the ball, Seattle is 4-5, but plays five of its final seven games in its deafening stadium. Seattle is just 1-2 at home, while the Packers are 0-4 on the road. The line held steady at Seattle -2.5 throughout the week, but stands at -3 in the latest Seahawks vs. Packers odds. The Over-Under, which opened at 49.5, has dropped to 48. Before you make any Seahawks vs. Packers picks, check out what the SportsLine Projection Model has to say.

In a straight-up, pick’em format, their proprietary computer model went 176-80 last season and beat over 95 percent of CBS Office Pool players in 2016 and ’17, performing better than 98 percent of experts tracked by NFLPickWatch.com during that span. Additionally, it went 48-34 on all A-rated picks last season, and $100 bettors who followed it the past two seasons are up nearly $4,000.

The model has continued to nail its top-rated picks in 2018, entering Week 11 on a blistering 10-0 run. For the season, it is now 24-9 on all top-rated picks, extending its two-year run to a strong 72-43. And when it comes to all straight-up picks, the model is 98-48 this season, again ranking in the top 15 on NFLPickWatch.com. Anybody who has been following it is way, way up.

Now the model has dialed in on Packers vs. Seahawks. We can tell you it’s leaning over, but the model also says there’s plenty of value on one side of the spread. You can only see it at SportsLine.

The model has factored in that the Packers’ receiving corps has played extremely well, boosting the team to seventh in total offense at 403.2 yards per game. Led by his 787 receiving yards, Davante Adams (nine TDs) has been the recipient of more than half of Aaron Rodgers’ 17 TD tosses this season. While secondaries double-team Adams, rookie Marquez Valdes-Scantling is stretching the field, picking up 17.5 yards per catch.

Running back Aaron Jones has also given Green Bay an extra dimension on the ground. He’s had double-digit carries his last three games and parlayed them into over 300 yards rushing and three touchdowns. He’s also added seven catches over that span. Jones has become a workhorse, taking pressure off Rodgers and the passing game.

But just because the Packers are balanced doesn’t mean they’ll cover on “Thursday Night Football,” especially at CenturyLink Field.

The Seahawks are itching to snap a two-game skid in just their fourth home game of the season. Despite a brutal early schedule that featured the Rams (twice), Chargers, and Bears, a win pushes them back to 5-5 in a crowded wild-card race.

Russell Wilson continues to make incredible plays while the pocket collapses around him. In four of his previous five games, he has thrown three touchdown passes. For the season, he has tossed at least two scores in all but one game while completing 66 percent of his attempts.

Rookie running back Rashaad Penny erupted last week against the Rams while Chris Carson (hip) sat out. Notching his first 100-yard game, Penny finished with 108 yards on only 12 carries. Carson should return on “Thursday Night Football,” giving Seattle another weapon.

 

France vs Netherlands

France vs Netherlands : 

Having lifted the World Cup for only the second time this summer in Russia, France are riding the crest of a wave at the moment and are the team to beat in international football.

On Friday night they travel to a Netherlands side looking to rebuild after a difficult few years knowing that one point will be enough to confirm Les Bleus as the victors of this Uefa Nations League group.

Read on for Netherlands v France live stream options, team news, predicted XIs, stats and TV channel info.

When is Netherlands v France?

Competition: Uefa Nations League

Venue: De Kuip, Rotterdam

Date: Friday, 16 November

Kick-off: 19:45 GMT

Match preview

France are the team to watch in international football right now having become world champions in Russia this summer. Didier Deschamps has found the perfect way for his team to be well set-up defensively yet still allow the individual talents of players like Paul Pogba, Antoine Griezmann and Kylian Mbappe to flourish and it’s working to devastating effect at the moment.

It was a slow start to the campaign really in the group stages, with narrow victories over Australia and Peru followed up with a bore draw against Denmark, before they exploded into life with a 4-3 round-of-16 victory over Argentina. Following on from that, Les Bleus eliminated Uruguay and Belgium before overcoming Croatia 4-2 at the Luzhniki Stadium to lift the most coveted trophy in football for only the second time.

For their Friday night opponents the Netherlands, this summer was an altogether different experience. One of the most famous names in international football having reached the World Cup final on three occasions in the past, it was a strange sight for football fans everywhere to see de Oranje fail to make this summer’s tournament as they finished behind Sweden and indeed France in their qualifying group.

Having failed to qualify for the European Championships two years earlier, it’s been a difficult few years for the Netherlands and after failed spells for Danny Blind and Dick Advocaat, former Everton boss Ronald Koeman has now come in and under the 55-year-old, there has been an upturn in form and the team have lost just one of their last eight games, the reverse fixture of this UEFA Nations League clash against the world champions France back in September.

As things stand, the Netherlands can still finish top of the group, but they need to win here and then win away against rivals Germany in the final game of the group on Monday night. As such, a draw in this game will be enough to confirm Les Bleus as group winners and after the Netherlands beat Die Mannschaft 3-0 in the other fixture, it would almost certainly condemn Joachim Low’s men to relegation into the second tier.

Where can I watch live?

Netherlands v France can be viewed by UK residents on Sky Sports Premier League, channel 402 on Sky and channel 502 for Virgin Media users.

The game is also available to watch on fuboTV.

How are France managing to avoid a World Cup hangover?

Despite having to face tough fixtures against Germany and the Netherlands, France still look as hungry as ever after winning the biggest prize in international football and remain unbeaten since lifting the trophy in Moscow back in July. With the vast array of talent available in Deschamps’ pool, there’s a feeling that very few of the French players have a nailed on spot in the squad and as such, said players have to continue playing at a high level to remain in contention. The head coach has little reason to alter things after the great success of this summer’s tournament but he’ll continue to give players chances and keep things fresh whilst remaining true to the principles that took them all the way to glory in Russia just two years after the bitter disappointment of losing the Euro 2016 final on home soil.

Are the Netherlands on their way back under Ronald Koeman?

The shoots of recovery are certainly there. The Netherlands have struggled to bridge the gap between the start of a new era and the end of one that has seen the likes of Arjen Robben, Wesley Sneijder and Robin van Persie phased out of international duty in the last couple of years. There are some incredibly talented young players being blooded by Ronald Koeman at the moment though including Ajax duo Frenkie de Jong and Matthijs de Ligt and they come into this match having lost only one of their last eight in all competitions. That 3-0 win over rivals Germany has really boosted the feel-good factor surrounding de Oranje and although a return to ‘Total Football’ seems unlikely, Koeman is building a functional, potentially excellent side for his country at the moment.

How will the French midfield line-up without Paul Pogba?

Paul Pogba is undoubtedly the star turn of the France midfield but Didier Deschamps has no shortage of options as he looks to temporarily replace the Manchester United man for this match. Moussa Sissoko was a key performer in France’s run to the Euro 2016 final on home soil and returns to the squad after some improved form for Tottenham Hotspur in recent weeks, but the fact he was drafted in as a replacement perhaps shows that he won’t be in Didier Deschamps first team plans for this game. Youngster Tanguy Ndombele may be thrown in but it’s more likely that Deschamps will use Blaise Matuidi in a more central position and select one of his talented attacking players in the wide left slot.

Head-to-head

That meeting in the reverse fixture ended in a narrow 2-1 win for Les Bleus in a party atmosphere for their first home game following the World Cup victory in Russia. Kylian Mbappe put the hosts ahead in the first half, before Ryan Babel equalised for the Netherlands. Olivier Giroud eventually secured the victory with a 74th-minute strike.

That was the 27th meeting between the two sides and there have been some classics over the years, in particular the 3-2 win for the Netherlands at Euro 2000. France have had the better of their European rivals in recent years though, winning the last five meetings between the two sides.

France wins: 14 Draws: 3 Netherlands wins: 10

Team news

The France squad will be missing some big names for this difficult trip to Rotterdam. Les Bleus will be without key midfielder Paul Pogba and his Manchester United team-mate Anthony Martial. Alexandre Lacazette was called up as a Martial replacement but has also been confirmed as unavailable along with Manchester City full-back Benjamin Mendy.

The Netherlands have made some alterations to their squad too, with Marco Bizot and Javairo Dilrosun both looking to win their first caps. Regular squad players Eljero Elia, Jeffrey Bruma and Daryl Janmaat whilst Roma starlet Justin Kluivert has also not been selected.

Predicted France XI: Lloris; Pavard, Kimpembe, Varane, Hernandez; Kante, Matuidi; Mbappe, Griezmann, Dembele; Giroud.

Predicted Netherlands XI: Cillessen; Dumfries, De Ligt, Van Dijk, Blind; Wijnaldum, F. De Jong, Strootmanl; Promes, Depay, Babel.

Squawka Prediction

The Netherlands look like a team on the rise at the moment and without Pogba, this French side don’t look quite as dominant in the middle of the park. The visitors are still the better side on paper but the home advantage could be enough to see de Oranje steal a point. 1-1

1. Match to be drawn @ 12/5

The Netherlands’ defeat to France in the reverse fixture of this clash at the Stade de France was their only defeat in eight games in all competitions. With the home advantage and on the back of a terrific 3-0 win over rivals Germany in their last UEFA Nations League game, we think they’ll be confident of taking a result from this tough fixture.

France have been solid since that famous World Cup victory in Russia this summer, but they have drawn against Germany and Iceland and may not be able to dominate the centre of the park without star man Paul Pogba. The Netherlands have drawn three of their last six games in all competitions themselves so a share of the spoils seems the likely outcome in Rotterdam.

Key Stat: The Netherlands have drawn three of their six matches since the end of last season.

2. Kylian Mbappe to score at any time @ 6/4

Kylian Mbappe’s first season at PSG was impressive but he’s taken things to a new level this season. After really impressing at the World Cup this summer, scoring four goals including a brace over Argentina and a lovely strike in the final win over Croatia, the 19 year old has taken momentum into the Ligue 1 campaign and scored 11 times in just nine games in the competition so far this term.

Since returning to international action after the World Cup, the former Monaco man has scored in the friendly draw with Iceland and bagged the opening goal in the reverse fixture of this clash, which Les Bleus won 2-1. We can see him adding his 11th international goal to his tally on Friday night.

Key Stat: Kylian Mbappe has scored six times in his last ten international outings.

Tip: Kylian Mbappe to score at any time @ 6/4 with BetBull – bet here

Odds correct at time of publishing (13/11/2018, 16:00)

3. Both teams to score @ 8/13

With so much attacking talent on display for both sides it’s no surprise that we’re backing goals here. The stats back us up too – both teams have found the net in four of France’s last five games in all competitions and five of the Netherlands’ last six, including the last meeting between the two sides in Paris back in September.

When France can call upon the likes of Kylian Mbappe and Antoine Griezmann in front of goal it’s no surprise that we’re expecting them to score and in Memphis Depay and Quincy Promes, the Netherlands possess two strikers that are perhaps not as feared around Europe but are in terrific form for their respective clubs and will be out to add to their international goal tallies in this game.

Key Stat: Both teams have scored in five of the Netherlands’ last six games in all competitions.

USA vs England

USA vs England : England host the United States in an international friendly at Wembley Stadium on Thursday, in a match that will see Wayne Rooney win his final cap for the Three Lions.

The striker retired from international football in August 2017, but England’s record goalscorer will return for a farewell appearance and win his 120th cap for his country.

Rooney, who plays his club football with D.C. United, will appear as a second-half substitute. The match will also support the striker’s charity, the Wayne Rooney Foundation.

       

Date: Thursday, November 15

Time: 8 p.m. BST/3 p.m. ET

Germany vs Russia

Germany will hope to rediscover some positive form when they host Russia in an international friendly at the Red Bull Arena in Leipzig on Thursday.

Die Mannschaft need to get back to winning ways ahead of facing the Netherlands in League A Group 1 of the UEFA Nations League on Monday, November 19.

Coach Joachim Low’s team is entering Thursday’s game on a dismal run of three defeats from the last six. By contrast, 2018 FIFA World Cup hosts Russia are unbeaten in their last six matches, having taken three wins and as many draws in that time.

Even so, Germany are favourites among the oddsmakers, while a slew of injuries in attack could hamper Russia.

Date: Thursday, November 15

Time: 7:45 p.m. GMT/2:45 p.m. ET

Live Stream: ESPN+

Odds (Per Oddschecker)

  • Germany: 1-3
  • Russia: 10-1
  • Draw: 5-1

Germany remaining firm favourites with the oddsmakers despite recent struggles is a testament to the quality in the squad, even if more than one notable star won’t feature:

Real Madrid playmaker Toni Kroos isn’t the only big name set to miss out. Paris Saint-Germain forward Julian Draxler has also since been given dispensation for “compassionate leave,” per Goal’s Nick Howson.

Meanwhile, Karolos Grohmann of Reuters (h/t Daily Mail) reported how Low noted a foot injury will keep Borussia Dortmund ace Marco Reus out and also leaves him a doubt to face the Netherlands.

Russia’s defence will still be tested by the pace and perceptive movement of wide forwards Serge Gnabry and Leroy Sane. Manchester City ace Sane possesses the flair and eye for goal to turn any match his nation’s way.

Former Arsenal player Gnabry is beginning to live up to his potential with Bayern Munich, having helped himself to a goal and a pair of assists in the Bundesliga this season.

Gnabry has been talked up by his manager:

Russia boast a credible scoring threat, but the squad will surely miss the influence of skipper Artem Dzyuba. The Zenit Saint Petersburg striker has been ruled out with injury, per Phil Kitromilides of Goal.

AS Monaco playmaker Aleksandr Golovin is nursing an ankle problem, while winger Denis Cheryshev, a star at the World Cup, has a leg injury, according to Marca.

The injuries make Russia’s task in Leipzig harder, especially with a trip to Sweden in the Nations League on Tuesday looming. Expect Germany to get back on track with a two-goal win.

Spain vs Croatia

Spain vs Croatia: Spain are in Croatia on Thursday for their final UEFA Nations League group game and know that a victory in Zagreb will see them reach the finals of the tournament.

Luis Enrique’s side top League A Group 4 by two points from England but will need to bounce back from their 3-2 defeat to the Three Lions last time out.

They can take confidence from their last meeting with Croatia. La Roja beat the 2018 FIFA World Cup finalists 6-0 in September, condemning Zlatko Dalic’s side to the worst defeat in their history.

Yet Spain’s defeat by England has left the group open. Victory for Croatia would move them level on points with England ahead of the two teams’ final match at Wembley Stadium on Sunday.

Date: Thursday, November 15

Time: 7:45 p.m. BST/2:45 p.m. ET

TV Info: Sky Sports Premier League (UK)

Live Stream: Sky Go (UK), ESPN+ (U.S.), Univision Deportes en Vivo (U.S.)

Odds (OddsShark)

Croatia: 13-5

Spain: 21-20

Draw: 23-10

Match Preview

Enrique has recalled Jordi Alba to the Spain squad for the first time since replacing Julen Lopetegui in the hot seat.

The Barcelona full-back’s return should be a big boost to the squad. He has been in superb form this season, contributing six assists and two goals for the Spanish champions.

He has said he has no problems with the former Barcelona boss:

Spain remain without the injured quartet of Dani Carvajal, Koke, Thiago Alcantara and Diego Costa, while Marcos Alonso, Nacho Hernandez, and Paco Alcacer have all been left out.

Enrique’s side began the tournament well with good wins over England and Croatia. However, their defeat in Seville, where they were 3-0 down at half-time, will have given the new manager plenty to think about.

Meanwhile, Croatia have struggled for form since making it all the way to the World Cup final in July.

They have won just once, a 2-1 friendly win over Jordan, and need to win both of their final group games to top their group.

Croatia will once again look to star man Luka Modric for inspiration. He has not been at his best for Real Madrid so far this season and has said he’s been affected by their World Cup exploits, per Jose Felix Diaz and Pablo Garcia of Marca. 

“I feel better. Mentally the World Cup cost me, but it was important for me to have a break during pre-season,” he said. I was playing a month after playing the World Cup final and I need a pre-season. Now I am better, the legs, the head, everything is better now.”

Croatia will want to make amends for their thrashing at the hands of Spain and salvage some pride from what has been a poor Nations League campaign. The team proved their quality at the World Cup and could look to take advantage of the defensive vulnerabilities Spain showed against England.

LAS VEGAS – After recording an event win and four Top-10 efforts during the regular season, Alisson De Souza (Taubate, Brazil) used a runner-up finish at the Real Time Pain Relief Velocity Tour (RVT) Finals to propel him to the 2018 RVT Championship.

Starting the season culminating event for the PBR’s (Professional Bull Riders) Velocity Tour at No. 13 in the series standings, 95 points behind then tour No. 1 Michael Lane (Tazewell, Virginia), the 25-year-old Brazilian went 2-for-3 inside South Point Hotel & Casino, collecting 225 world points, to surge to the top of the rankings.

After covering Heartless (John Peck/Hale & Wallgren Bull Co.) for 87 points in Round 1, De Souza rebounded from a Round 2 buckoff early Saturday night with an 88-point, round winning ride aboard Handsome Jeff (K-C/Jo-Z Bucking Bulls) in the championship round.

For his efforts, he earned $72,600, including the $50,000 RVT Champion bonus.

Matching his rise up the RVT standings, De Souza also gained ground in the PBR world standings, rising to No. 34 after beginning the event No. 43. Courtesy of his newfound ranking inside the Top 35, De Souza has qualified for his career-first PBR World Finals.

For the second time in his career, Chase Outlaw (Hamburg, Arkansas) won the RVT Finals event title, earning $29,600 and 320 world points.

After winning Round 1 Friday night, Outlaw covered his eighth straight bull in Round 2, making the 8 aboard SW 506 (Winston/Slaughter/Melton Bull Co.) for 87.5 points. His streak, however, came to an end in the championship round when he was dispatched by Max Bet (Owens/Wyatt/Smith) in 5.11 seconds.

Compliments of the win, Outlaw is now ranked No. 22 in the world, qualifying for his seventh consecutive world finals.

Throughout the past month, Outlaw has mounted a historic climb up the world standings. While reconstructive shoulder surgery prevented the Arkansas cowboy from competing the entirety of the first half, he was forced back to the sidelines just two months after making his 2018 debut when he was involved in a horrific wreck at Cheyenne Frontier Days where he sustained 30 facial fractures.

Since returning to competition on Oct. 6 at the Milwaukee, Wisconsin 25th PBR: Unleash The Beast event, Outlaw has risen 54 spots in the world standings, up from No. 76, collecting 865 world points.

Luis Blanco (Iacanga, Brazil) and Paulo Lima (Bezerros, Brazil) tied for third at the event, both earning berths to the 2018 PBR World Finals.

Blanco, followed his 88-point trip in Round 1 on Yatesy Down Under (Star E Ranch/Just Have Faith Ranch) with 81 points on Anonymous (Broken Arrow Bucking Bulls) in the championship round, netting 152.5 world points and $14,700.

His qualification to the most prestigious event in the PBR, the fourth of his career, came as one of two top event finishers not ranked inside the Top 35.

For Lima, his finish was backed by two 84.5-point efforts coming aboard Look Back At It (CO Cattle CO./Bob Whisnant) in Round 1 and Red Man (Halpain & Roth) in Round 2. The 30-year-old Brazilian collected 62.5 points and $7,700 for his efforts.

Rising to No. 3 in the RVT standings, Lima punched his ticket to the World Finals for the fourth time in his career as one of the top two riders in the RVT standings not ranked within the Top 35.

Juan Carlos Contreras (Huichapan, Mexican) finished fifth at the RVT Finals, earning him his second appearance at the World Finals as the second top finishing rider at the event not inside the Top 35.

Collecting $4,900 and 40 world points, Contreras’ efforts were helped by back-to-back rides in the first two rounds, an 83-point ride on Memory Maker (Team KNK/The Jaynes Gang) in Round 1 and an 82-point trip on Real Gun (Cord McCoy/G-G) in Round 2.

Despite going 0-for-2 at the event, Lane qualified for his second career World Finals via the Velocity Tour standings. Concluding the 2018 season No. 4, Lane delivered one of the most consistent seasons on the tour, recording an event win and eight Top 10 efforts.

Tying for twelfth with Mason Taylor (Maypearl, Texas), PBR Mexico invite Francisco Garcia Torres (Sal, Mexico) qualified for his career-first World Finals as the top finishing international invite. Torres’ finish, which earned him 15 world points, was backed by his 86-point trip aboard Mr. Valentine (Rickey West Bucking Bulls) in Round 1.

Round 2 also concluded the American Bucking Bull Inc. (ABBI) Derby and Wild Card Classic competitions. Over the past two days 90 3-year-old Derby bulls and 90 3- and 4-year-old Wild Card bulls went head-to-head in hopes of securing their spot at the top.

Preacher’s Kid (K-C Bucking Bulls/RD Cattle) held on to his lead in the Derby with a 90.6-point performance for a payout of just under $28,000. Dirty White Boy (Andrews Rodeo Company), TNT 541 (Terrell/Smith) and Right Stuff (Craig Smith/Vern Nix) finished in a three-way tie for second after recording matching 88.2point scores, and each earning check for more than $12,500.

Viper (Cord McCoy/Big Sky Bulls, LLC) won the Wild Card Classic title with 89.4 points to earn $14,025. Jaywalker (Torres Brothers Bucking Bulls) picked up 89.2 points for a second-place finish and $7,905, while Major League Bucking Bulls’ Full Count was third posting 88.4 points to collect just under $6,000.

Compliments of their efforts at the RVT Finals, Wild Card Classic bulls Viper, Jaywalker, Full Count, Rugby (LeFlore Bucking Bulls) and Velocity (Andrews Rodeo Company) all qualified for the ABBI Classic Finals and will appear in Round 1 of the PBR World Finals on Wednesday.
