It is a busy time for sports handicappers these days with the National Football League opening its training camps in two weeks, the World Cup championship game between Germany and Argentina set for Sunday and a very interesting junior middleweight boxing match scheduled for Saturday in Las Vegas.
And let’s not forget Major League Baseball with its daily challenges and opportunities to make money. While we’re at it, let’s also let it be known that Los Angeles Dodgers pitcher Clayton Edward Kershaw continues to emerge as one of the greatest of all time.

Germany +135 Favored To Win World Cup
Germany, which crushed Brazil 7-1 to get to the World Cup championship game, has emerged as the favorite at +135 to take down upstart Argentina (+225) in Sunday’s title game from Brazil. For those not too familiar with soccer, the betting odds point to a game that figures to be quite close.
The championship match will be played at Maracano Stadium (78,838 seats) in Rio de Janeiro before a sellout crowd that could well be much larger than stadium capacity. A record 199,854 jammed into the facility in 1950 for the championship game between Brazil and Uruguay.
The match will begin at 3:05 EDT and will be televised in the United States by ABC.
All Eyes Of Boxing World On Vegas Match Saturday
Two of the best and most promising boxers in the world—Saul (Camelo’) Alvarez (43-1-1) of Mexico and Erislandy Lara (19-1-2) of Cuba—will meet in a non-title junior middleweight bout at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas and will certainly attract the eyes of the entire boxing world.
Alvarez and Lara are considered two very important parts of the sport’s future and each has trained for this fight as if life itself depended on winning it.
Alvarez opened as the -160 favorite and has been bet out to -195. Lara opened at +125 and is now +166 and both boxers are confident they will win it. Alvarez suffered his only loss to Floyd Mayweather, consider by many as the best fighter in the country, last September. That bout was close and many felt Alvarez had won it. As for Lara, he is the junior middleweight title holder but this 12-round bout does not qualify because it is being fought at 155 pounds, one pound over the division limit.
The fight can be seen on Showtime Pay Per View.
Kershaw Lays It On Line Again Tonight
The Los Angeles Dodgers left-hander Clayton Kershaw (-275) takes the mound again tonight as he continues his march to greatness. For the record, Kershaw is the most dominating, intimidating pitcher I have seen since the great Bob Gibson was bringing home the bacon for the St. Louis Cardinals.
His performances since he was in high school (we will address his background in another column) have already given him legendary status—and he just keeps building on it.
Kershaw brings a 36-inning scoreless streak into Thursday’s outing against San Diego and seeks to win his eighth straight start. He has given up only 13 hits over his last four starts, a stretch that began with a no-hitter against Colorado on June 18.
Kershaw has struck out 44 batters and walked just four over his last four outings while seemingly raising his performance to an even-higher level. The two-time Cy Young winner has struck out 115 batters in 87 1/3 innings this season while issuing only 12 walks. Kershaw owns a 9-6 record with a 2.47 ERA in 21 career starts against the Padres.
I cannot lay the -275 but this certainly is a game I will watch.
This is a pitcher that seems to have no limits.
