About Last Night
Steelers deny Bears to move to 5-3

The Steelers are +500 with FanDuel Sportsbook to win their division. Find out what Ricky Dimon made of both teams in our Monday Night Football reaction article.
NBA cappers go 6-2 on Monday night
It was a magic Monday for our NBA handicappers, who went 6-2 on the sides for Monday’s 8 games. Germantas Kneita also cashed both his best player prop bets for Monday! On the court, the Bulls beat the Nets and the Warriors rolled to a 9-1 record with a home win over the Hawks.
Rangers hand Panthers first regulation loss
There were only 3 NHL games yesterday, but they were noteworthy — with the New York Rangers handing the Florida Panthers (10-1-1) their first loss in regulation of the season while the Los Angeles Kings won their 5th game in a row by beating the Toronto Maple Leafs.

Best Bet of the Day
Kansas Jayhawks -4 vs Michigan State Spartans (NCAAB)
7pm ET, ESPN
Kansas is a national title contender and Michigan State is looking like a second-tier Big Ten team. MSU coach Tom Izzo does a great job improving his team over the course of the season but this looks like a significant mismatch to start the year. The Spartans will rebound the ball but it’s hard to see where their offense is coming from and good effort won’t be enough in the opener. Read our full game preview for Kansas vs Michigan State.
