There will likely be two places in New Jersey — not just one — accepting legal sports bets starting Thursday, NJ Advance Media has learned.
The Borgata, Atlantic City’s top-performing casino, is planning to open its sports wagering parlor Thursday morning, pending approval from the state, a spokeswoman for the gambling hall told NJ Advance Media on Wednesday.
The casino would launch at about 11 a.m., spokeswoman Liza Constandino said.
Jim Salisbury of NBC Sports Philadelphia threw out an interesting idea this week: Kansas City Royals third baseman Mike Moustakas.
This is not to say the Phillies won’t look to upgrade their offensive output at third base in July if they can manage to right their ship this month and stay relevant in the playoff chase. They have an obligation to improve if they think they can make the postseason now. But Mike Moustakas, a rental player without Machado’s price tag of prospects, might fit the team’s plan better.
Moustakas, 29, entered play on June 12 with 13 HR and 42 RBI. The veteran slugger signed a one-year, $6.5M deal with the Royals before the season. The deal comes with a $15M mutual option for 2019. If Machado arrives in the offseason, the Phillies could decline the option for the cost of $1M.
Since the start of 2012, Moustakas has averaged 26 HR per 162 games played.
You know, their bodies are obviously the biggest thing for them, but there is a mental part of this that they need to keep up with and stay on top of, Patricia said. Review the material, hopefully have some questions when we get back to training camp that they’re asking and we can answer for them and keeping the process rolling.
The Lions wrap up their OTAs this week and will be back on the practice field the final week of July, with the rookies returning a week earlier. The team opens its preseason slate Aug. 10 against the Oakland Raiders, and are holding a pair of joint practices with the Raiders in the days leading up to the matchup.
The team also has joint practices lined up with the New York Giants the following week, at the Lions’ practice facility in Allen Park.
