Colliding on the gridiron . . .

College football wraps up its first week with two games on Monday: Navy vs. Maryland (at M&T Bank Stadium), and No. 3 Boise State vs. No. 10 Virginia Tech (at FedExField). Oddsmakers have Navy set as the 6.5-point favorite in that first matchup, with the total at 48.5. Boise State is then a slim 1.5-point favorite, with the total for that contest at 50.5.

As well, the Canadian Football League offers up its regular Labour Day battles on Monday, with Toronto at Hamilton and Edmonton at Calgary. The Argonauts (5-3 SU, 5-3 ATS) and Tiger-Cats (4-4 SU, 4-4 ATS) will be playing for the second straight game; Hamilton won 16-12 on the road in Week 8, and they’re a 4-point home favorite for Monday (with the total at 50). The Eskimos (2-6 SU, 3-5 ATS) are big 12.5-point underdogs against the rival Stampeders (7-1 SU, 6-2 ATS), with that game’s total at 54.

Meeting up on the diamond . . .

On the American League schedule for Monday it’s Baltimore at the Yankees, the White Sox at Detroit, Texas at Toronto, Kansas City at Minnesota, Seattle at Oakland, Cleveland at the Angels, and Tampa Bay at Boston. The Rays will go with Jeff Niemann (10-5, 3.97 ERA) in that last matchup, while the Red Sox counter with Jon Lester (15-8, 3.27 ERA). Righthander Niemann has been knocked around in each of his last two starts, giving up a combined 17 runs on 15 hits over 8 1-3 innings of work against the Blue Jays and Angels. Lefthander Lester is coming off a win over the Orioles (five runs in six innings), and he beat the Rays on August 27 (one unearned run in seven innings).

Over in the National League on Monday there’s a doubleheader between the Marlins and Phillies in Philadelphia, along with the Mets at Washington, Atlanta at Pittsburgh, St. Louis at Milwaukee, Houston at the Cubs, San Francisco at Arizona, the Dodgers at San Diego, and Cincinnati at Colorado. Aaron Harang (6-7, 4.92 ERA) is slated to take on Ubaldo Jimenez (17-6, 2.69 ERA) in that Reds/Rockies matchup. Righthander Harang took a no-decision against the Brewers last time out, giving up three runs (one earned) on eight hits over just four innings. Righthander Jimenez is coming off a hard-luck loss to the Giants in which he gave up two runs over eight innings while fanning 10.
