Colliding on the gridiron . . .

Manning will take on Manning to highlight the NFL’s Week 2 schedule on Sunday night, as the Giants travel to Indianapolis to battle with the Colts. The Giants (1-0 SU, 1-0 ATS) had no trouble at home against the Panthers in their first game of the season, winning 31-18. Eli Manning went 20-of-30 for 263 yards passing for New York in that victory, with three TD strikes to go along with three interceptions. The Colts (0-1 SU, 0-1 ATS) were upset 34-24 in Houston last week. Peyton Manning went 40-of-57 for 433 yards passing in that loss, with three TD strikes and no interceptions. Oddsmakers have Indianapolis listed as the 5-point favorite for Sunday’s matchup, with the total high at 48.

On the NFL’s afternoon schedule for Sunday it’ll be Pittsburgh at Tennessee (-5), Baltimore (-1.5) at Cincinnati, Philadelphia (-5.5) at Detroit, Arizona at Atlanta (-6.5), Miami at Minnesota (-5.5), Kansas City at Cleveland (-1.5), Tampa Bay at Carolina (-3.5), Buffalo at Green Bay (-13), Chicago at Dallas (-7.5), Seattle at Denver (-3), St. Louis at Oakland (-3.5), Jacksonville at San Diego (-7), Houston (-3) at Washington, and New England (-2.5) at the Jets. The Patriots rolled past the Bengals 38-24 at home in their Week 1 contest, while the Jets were beaten 10-9 at home by the Ravens. Jets QB Mark Sanchez went just 10-of-21 for 74 yards passing in that loss on Monday night.

As well, the Canadian Football League finishes off Week 12 of its season on Sunday with Winnipeg at Toronto and Edmonton at Montreal. The Argonauts (5-5 SU, 5-5 ATS) are 1-point home favorites against the Bombers (3-7 SU, 5-5 ATS), while the Als (7-3 SU, 5-5 ATS) are set as 12-point home favorites versus the Eskimos (2-8 SU, 3-7 ATS).

Meeting up on the diamond . . .

On the American League schedule for Sunday it’ll be the Yankees at Baltimore, Toronto at Boston, Oakland at Minnesota, Cleveland at Kansas City, Texas at Seattle, Detroit at the White Sox, and the Angels at Tampa Bay. Scott Kazmir (8-14, 5.99 ERA) is slated to get the ball against his old team on Sunday, while the Rays counter with Jeff Niemann (10-6, 4.32 ERA). Lefthander Kazmir was tagged with a loss by the Indians last time out (four runs over 5 2-3 innings), and Los Angeles is just 2-8 in his last 10 outings. Righthander Niemann took a no-decision against the Blue Jays in his most recent trip to the hill (three runs over five innings), and he last earned a win on August 3.

The National League on Sunday then features the Cubs at Florida, Atlanta at the Mets, Arizona at Pittsburgh, Washington at Philadelphia, Cincinnati at Houston, Milwaukee at San Francisco, Colorado at the Dodgers, and San Diego at St. Louis. Jon Garland (14-11, 3.49 ERA) is expected to take on Adam Wainwright (18-11, 2.50 ERA) in that Padres/Cardinals matchup. Righthander Garland beat the Rockies in his most recent start, surrendering just three runs (two earned) over his seven innings of work. Righthander Wainwright is coming off a loss to the Cubs in which he allowed five runs on 12 hits over eight innings pitched; Wainwright is 1-5 over his last six mound outings.

Roaring around the track . . .

The Sprint Cup Series begins its playoffs on Sunday, as the Chase for the Sprint Cup launches with the Sylvania 300 at New Hampshire Motor Speedway. Denny Hamlin sits atop the reconfigured driver standings heading into Sunday’s race, and he’s the 9/2 oddsmakers’ co-favorite along with Jimmie Johnson to take the checkered flag. Johnson won the Lenox Industrial Tools 301 at New Hampshire back in June, while Hamlin won that race back in 2007. Kyle Busch is pegged at 11/2 odds to win the Sylvania 300, with Kevin Harvick and Tony Stewart both at 10/1, Jeff Gordon at 11/1, and Kurt Busch, Jeff Burton, and Clint Bowyer at 12/1. Defending race champion Mark Martin is at 50/1 odds.
