Colliding on the gridiron . . .

Monday Night Football this week sees the defending-champion Saints hitting the road for a game against the Niners in San Francisco. The Saints (1-0 SU, 0-1 ATS) picked up a 14-9 home win over Minnesota in their first game of the season, with Drew Brees going 27-of-36 for 237 yards passing with one touchdown strike. Pierre Thomas rushed for 71 yards and a score for New Orleans in that game. The Niners (0-1 SU, 0-1 ATS) were throttled 31-6 on the road by Seattle in their Week 1 contest, with Alex Smith good on 26-of-45 pass attempts for 225 yards and two interceptions. Frank Gore ran for just 38 yards on 17 carries in that defeat. Oddsmakers have the Saints pegged as the 5.5-point road favorites for Monday night’s game, with the total for the matchup at 44 points.

Meeting up on the diamond . . .

The American League schedule offers up six games on Monday, with Kansas City at Detroit, Baltimore at Boston, Cleveland at Minnesota, the White Sox at Oakland, Texas at the Angels, and Tampa Bay at the Yankees. The Rays’ Matt Garza (14-8, 3.88 ERA) is expected to take on the Yankees’ Ivan Nova (1-0, 4.30 ERA) in that last contest. Righthander Garza was knocked around by New York in his last trip to the mound, surrendering six runs on nine hits over just 4 2-3 innings of work in a no-decision. Righthander Nova was Garza’s opposition in that contest, and he also picked up a no-decision after allowing six runs on six hits over 4 2-3 innings. Nova struck out two hitters.

Over in the National League on Monday it’s then St. Louis at Florida, Houston at Washington, Cincinnati at Milwaukee, and Atlanta at Philadelphia. The Braves are slated to send Jair Jurrjens (7-6, 4.64 ERA) to the hill in that key divisional clash, with the Phillies countering with Cole Hamels (11-10, 3.01 ERA). Righthander Jurrjens is coming off a loss to the Nationals in which he gave up four runs on nine hits over just five innings of work. Lefthander Hamels dominated the Marlins in his most recent trip to the mound, surrendering just one run on five hits over his 6 2-3 innings while fanning 13.
