"Put Up for Sale Real Quick"- Brett Moffitt Does Not Fancy Riding Motorbikes Since Horrific Crash

Back in March, Brett Moffitt fractured both his legs in a horrific Motocross accident. Luckily he was able to recover and was in ‘good spirits’, according to the team.

As it turned out, his injuries were so severe that he needed surgery to fix it. Owing to that, doctors gave him an estimated recovery time of at least six to eight weeks.

He recently spoke to FOX Sports about the aftermath of the accident and opened up about his takeaways.

What did Brett Moffitt say?

FOX Sports’ Bob Pockrass asked the driver whether he ever sat back on a bike after the accident. Moffitt said, “No, those got put up for sale real quick.

Wasn’t necessarily my opinion or my option, but I’m good with it. When you’re a kid, you ride all the time and you feel invincible. Apparently I’m getting old now, because I’m far from invincible. So we got rid of all the bikes, that’s for sure.”

Luckily, he did not really miss much, because the COVID-19 pandemic struck and forced everything to a standstill. Naturally, this gave Brett Moffitt plenty of time to recover from the crash and let his legs heal up nice and easy.

Ever since the season resumed, Moffitt became a man on a mission. That injury was clearly not bothering him at all, as he now lies 5th in the Truck Series championship. In the last race, Moffitt had a good day in the office as he finished in 4th place behind Grant Enfinger, Matt Crafton, and Ben Rhodes.

At the next race at the Bristol Motor Speedway, Brett Moffitt will surely try every trick in the book to win. At the same time, he will also be eager to stay alive in the Playoffs battle for as long as possible.

Trysten Hill ripped for breaking NFL code on Chris Carson tackle

Trysten Hill ripped for breaking NFL code on Chris Carson tackle

Former Cowboys defensive end Marcus Spears was furious with a current Dallas player over what the ESPN analyst described as a “code breaker and bulls–t” play.

In the fourth quarter of the Cowboys-Seahawks game Sunday, defensive lineman Trysten Hill made an ankle-grabbing tackle on Seattle star Chris Carson. Replays showed Hill twisting the running back’s leg well after they had hit the ground and the play was dead, which caused the Seahawks running back to grab his knee in pain. Carson didn’t return for the remainder of the game.

“There’s a Code that usually exist between players in the league as much as we wanna win,” Spears wrote on Twitter. “This is a Code Breaker and Bulls–t.”

“This dude has some hurt coming his way next week for this gator roll. We see it on film,” former Giants offensive lineman Geoff Schwartz added.

Seahawks coach Pete Carroll told ESPN radio that he was “really pissed about that” play.

NFL Network reported Monday that Hill is expected to receive a fine from the league of the dirty tackle. The report also says Carson won’t miss much time with a knee sprain.

Seattle ended up winning the game 38-31 to improve to 3-0 on the season, dropping the Cowboys to 1-2.

Monday Night Football Betting Preview: Odds, trends, picks for Chiefs-Ravens

In the game of the week, the Chiefs travel to M&T Bank Stadium to take on the Ravens. Both teams enter this game undefeated, and many think this could be an AFC Championship Game preview. The line has settled at -3.5 in favor of the home Ravens, and Baltimore is -195 on the moneyline. In what is expected to be a high scoring game, the total is set at 54.

The BetQL NFL Best Bet Model loves the total in this game, listing it as a four-star bet. It is also favoring the first-half and full-game moneylines, listing them as three-star bets. Keep reading to see what these picks are.

Chiefs-Ravens Betting Preview

Chiefs Outlook

After winning the Super Bowl, the Chiefs have picked up right where they left off. After a dominant Week 1 performance, the Chiefs struggled a bit against the Chargers, ultimately winning 23-20 in overtime. Even with their struggles, the Chiefs are attracting 53 percent of betting tickets and an astounding 67 percent of the money wagered on the spread, per the BetQL NFL Public Betting Dashboard.

While it seemed as if Patrick Mahomes struggled throughout their win against the Chargers, the final statline would beg to differ. Mahomes completed 27-of-47 pass attempts for 302 yards and two touchdowns. He didn’t turn the ball over, and his offensive line gave him ample protection, as he was sacked just once. 

Tyreek Hill caught five passes for 99 yards and a long touchdown. However, the duo was uncharacteristically inconsistent, with Hill catching just five of the 11 passes thrown his way. Luckily for Mahomes, he always has Travis Kelce as his security blanket. Kelce put up another monster game, catching nine of his 14 targets for 90 yards and a touchdown.

If there is one thing that is going to hold Kansas City back this season, it’s the defense. After playing well against the Texans in the opener, the Chiefs had a golden opportunity to establish themselves as a top-tier group against a rookie quarterback. Justin Herbert was making his first start, and he didn’t just look comfortable, the Chiefs at times made him look like a superstar. The rookie threw for 311 yards and a touchdown and was rarely under pressure. In total, the Chiefs allowed the Chargers to rack up 479 yards of offense, which has to be concerning with Lamar Jackson coming up.

Ravens Outlook

Another week, another easy victory for the Ravens. A week after demolishing the Browns in their opening season victory, it was business as usual for Baltimore, as it followed that up with a 33-16 win against the Texans. That victory now marks 14-straight regular season wins for the Ravens, and interestingly enough, one of only two losses last season for Baltimore came against the Chiefs.

With how well the Ravens have looked so far, it’s a surprise to see just 47 percent of the tickets and 33 percent of the money wagered on them, per BetQL NFL Public Betting Dashboard. Against the Texans, Lamar Jackson was efficient, but pedestrian. Jackson completed 18-of-24 passes for 204 yards and a touchdown. He added 54 yards on the ground, and that was the theme for Baltimore: Domination on the ground.

As a team, the Ravens ran for an astounding 230 yards on 37 carries. They averaged 6.2 yards per rush and got plus yardage seemingly whenever they wanted. This was the strategy that carried the Ravens to a 14-2 record in 2019, and they’re picking up right where they left off. This could spell good news for them, as the Chiefs struggled to defend the run against the Chargers, giving up 183 yards.

Each of the Ravens top three running backs averaged better than six yards a carry last week. Interestingly enough, their leading rusher was Gus Edwards, who many thought would be the third option in the backfield. Edwards rushed 10 times for 73 yards, while Mark Ingram and JK Dobbins added 55 and 48 yards, respectively. This trio will wear out defenses over the course of the season, and the ability to keep them fresh will be key to running out the clock late in games.

After allowing a touchdown to the Texans to cut the score to 10-7 in the second quarter last week, the Ravens defense really tightened up. It allowed just two field goals the rest of the way, keeping a dangerous quarterback out of the end zone for the final 39 minutes. Against Patrick Mahomes and the Chiefs, it will be paramount for this defense to scrap together some stops and force them to settle for a few field goals. 

Prediction

BetQL’s NFL model labels the Ravens -195 moneyline as a three-star bet, and we are giving Baltimore a 67.8-percent chance to win outright. This is a stark difference from the 67 percent of the money in favor of Kansas City. Check out BetQL’s NFL Best Bets Dashboard to see what our algorithm has targeted as the strongest play in this game. The total is a very strong four-star bet. You can find all updated lines, odds, spreads, and NFL picks at BetQL!

Giants’ MLB playoff hopes crushed on umpire’s brutal call

The San Francisco Giants fell just short of qualifying for the expanded National League playoffs. The way in which their 2020 season ended was all the more disappointing.

Home plate umpire Rob Drake rung up Austin Slater with a questionable third-strike call to secure the Giants’ fate with a 5-4 loss to the San Diego Padres Sunday. Slater, who was batting with the bases empty, immediately threw his hands up in disbelief at the low pitch from Padres pitcher Trevor Rosenthal.

A win for the Giants would’ve solidified a spot in the playoffs and booked their ticket to Los Angeles to take on the rival Dodgers in the wild-card round beginning Wednesday.

Manager Gabe Kapler let Drake know his feelings on the call from the dugout.

“It was disappointing,” Kapler told reporters after the game. “I haven’t had a chance to go back and watch the game but I know there were some calls that went against our guys.”

Brewers star Christian Yelich, whose team secured the final playoff spot in the NL and will face the Dodgers in the first round because of Drake’s call, said he “one hundred percent” thought the season-ending call on the Giants was right.
