Colliding on the gridiron . . .

There are two games on the college football schedule for Friday, with Villanova at Temple, and Arizona at Toledo. The contest between ‘Nova and Temple didn’t receive a line from the oddsmakers, and Arizona is a 15.5-point road favorite against the Rockets.

As well, there’s one Canadian Football League game on tap for Friday, with B.C. at Montreal. The Lions (1-7 SU, 2-6 ATS) have now lost seven games in a row, while the Alouettes (6-2 SU, 4-4 ATS) will be playing without injured starting quarterback Anthony Calvillo. Montreal is pegged as the 11-point favorite for Friday, with the total set at 49.5.

Meeting up on the diamond . . .

The American League schedule for Friday offers up Toronto at the Yankees, Tampa Bay at Baltimore, Texas at Minnesota, Detroit at Kansas City, the Angels at Oakland, Cleveland at Seattle, and the White Sox at Boston. John Danks (12-9, 3.65 ERA) is set to take on Clay Buchholz (15-5, 2.21 ERA) in that last matchup. Lefthander Danks was knocked around by the Yankees in his last trip to the mound, giving up eight runs on six hits over his 4 1-3 innings of work. Righthander Buchholz had to settle for a no-decision against the Rays last time out, giving up two runs (one earned) over his 7 1-3 innings.

Meanwhile, the National League schedule for Friday has Washington at Pittsburgh, the Mets at the Cubs, Milwaukee at Philadelphia, Atlanta at Florida, Cincinnati at St. Louis, Houston at Arizona, Colorado at San Diego, and San Francisco at the Dodgers. The Giants will go with Barry Zito (8-10, 4.07 ERA) on Friday, while Los Angeles counters with Chad Billingsley (10-8, 3.73 ERA). Lefthander Zito will be looking to bounce back from an ugly loss to the Diamondbacks in which he gave up nine runs (seven earned) over his 3 2-3 innings pitched. Righthander Billingsley is also coming off a losing outing, surrendering three runs on five hits in six innings of work against the Rockies last game.

Rounding out the Roundup . . .

The PGA Tour continues its FedExCup playoffs starting Friday with the Deutsche Bank Championship at TPC Boston. Tiger Woods played well enough at The Barclays last week to qualify for the second round of the playoffs, and the oddsmakers have him as the 7/1 favorite to pick up the win at TPC Boston. Steve Stricker, the defending tournament champion, is next at 11/1 odds, followed by each of Phil Mickelson, Dustin Johnson, and Rory McIlroy at 16/1. Mickelson won this event back in 2007, and Woods was the winner in 2006. Two-time champion Vijay Singh (2008 and 2004) is back at 100/1 odds to win this weekend; Singh is back in 86th place in the FedExCup standings. Matt Kuchar, who leads the standings right now, sits at 22/1 odds to pick up the victory.
