Boston/Cleveland In Baseball And Football Next Sunday

October 3, 2016

Next Sunday, it will be Boston vs Cleveland in 5th week NFL action and game 3 of an American League Division Series.

The (3-1) Patriots will be say, 10 point favorites (I hit the spread right on the money, but so what in that I was (1-3) on predictions/suggestions yesterday, but I do have talent) in Tom Brady’s return and after an embarrassing loss yesterday, to the (2-2) Buffalo Bills, even on the shores of Lake Erie, at the (0-4) Browns.

There will not be both football and baseball there, as the Indians have home advantage vs the Red Sox.

The Red Sox will play in Cleveland on Thursday and Friday and onto to Boston for game 3 next Sunday, of course weather permitting.

The last time the Cleveland Indians won the World Series was in 1948. They won a one game, unscheduled playoff game to get “there.”

“There” was the World Series and happened to be Boston vs the Braves, a baseball franchise since relocated to both Milwaukee and Atlanta.

The Indians stayed in Boston and lost the Series opener (1-0) (the famed safe call, likely incorrect on Bob Feller’s attempted pickoff play and subsequent rbi hit by Boston’s Tommy Holmes).

However, Cleveland  got a split in “Beantown,” winning game 2, and eventually won it all there in game 6.
