Australian Open 2018 Live

We’re into the Round of 16 at the 2018 Australian Open. Very few of the top-seeded players from the men’s and women’s singles brackets have been eliminated at this point, four rounds into the year’s first Grand Slam.

Rafael Nadal, the top seed and last year’s runner-up, will have his toughest test of the tournament on Saturday against the 24th seed, Diego Schwartzman. The Australian Open remains the only Grand Slam that Nadal has only won once before. The man who beat him in 2017, Roger Federer, has been playing well thus far.

Also for the men, No. 3 seed Grigor Dimitrov continues his quest for a Grand Slam win, and he’s got to take out local favorite Nick Kyrgios, the 17th seed. Marin Cilic, the sixth seed, has the toughest out among the top seeds, as he will play Pablo Carreno Busta, the 10th seed.

Or perhaps it’s Busta who has the toughest out.

On the women’s side, the second seed, Caroline Wozniacki, has looked great and will face No. 19 Magdalena Rybarikova. Elina Svitolina, the popular pick to win it all, will face the unseeded Denisa Allertova. Her top competition is Simona Halep, who narrowly survived a three-set marathon against Lauren Davis on Friday. Halep is the top seed but looked utterly exhausted after her win over Davis.

You can find results, scores, and schedules for the women’s singles bracket at the Australian Open right here. Results for the men’s side can be found here.

Below is all you need to know to follow the Australian Open action on Saturday.

Watch Patriots vs Jaguars: Live Stream, Watch Online AFC Championship Football, Game time, TV schedule, channels, The Patriots welcome the Titans to Foxboro Saturday, Jan. 13, for a Divisional Round game.

New England is the top seed in the AFC and coming off a bye week. The Patriots have not lost a Divisional Round game since since they lost to the Jets in 2011. In 13 career Divisional Round games Tom Brady is 11-2 while completing 62 percent of his passes for 3,700 yards, 26 touchdowns and 11 interceptions.

The Titans come into this game after completing an 18-point comeback in Arrowhead Stadium to knock off the Chiefs in the wild-card round. Without DeMarco Murray in the game Tennessee relied heavily on Derrick Henry who had 23 carries for 156 yards and a touchdown along with two catches for 35 yards.

These teams have not played against each other since 2015 when New England won a 33-16 contest at home.

The (14-3) New England Patriots host the (12-6) Jacksonville Jaguars.

The Patriots are looking to reach their 10th Super Bowl in franchise history and they’ll have to first get past the Jaguars and their ferocious defense. New England is the heavy favorite, but Tom Brady’s hand is hurt and that could greatly affect the game.

New England has covered the spread in 10 of their past 11 games (the only exception was their loss to the Miami Dolphins), which represents the best record against the spread in an 11-game stretch over the past six seasons, per OddsShark. Surprisingly, the Patriots have hit the under in seven of those 11 games, which means that New England’s defense is no slouch, either.

SAG Awards 2018

“Lady Bird” and “Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri” are the only films nominated in three categories at this weekend’s SAG Awards, so they’re the only films with a chance to join an exclusive club. If one of them wins all three categories, it would be only the fourth film to do so and could also give it a boost as it competes for Best Picture at the Oscars.

The Screen Actors Guild first began handing out awards in 1995 but did not give out the prize for ensemble casts until the following year when “Apollo 13” was the inaugural winner. To date no film has come close to sweeping all six of the film categories: for ensembles and stunt ensembles, lead and supporting actors, and lead and supporting actresses. Currently the record for the most wins is three, held by “American Beauty” (awarded in 2000), “Chicago” (2003), and “The Help” (2012). All three of those triple champs won for their ensemble casts and two individual actors.

As of this writing “Three Billboards” is expected to tie that record with three awards. Its ensemble is predicted to walk away victorious with leading odds of 8/15. The film’s star, Frances McDormand, is forecast to add this award to the Golden Globe and Critics’ Choice Award she’s already won with odds of 4/11.  Should she win, McDormand would also be the first woman to do so twice after previously prevailing for “Fargo” in 1997.

After that things could get complicated for “Three Billboards.” For his supporting work Sam Rockwell is also expected to take home a SAG Award to go with his Golden Globe and Critics’ Choice Award. He has a small lead with odds of 8/11. But in order to win at this event he’ll have to overcome a potential vote split with his co-star Woody Harrelson. Harrelson currently ranks fourth with odds of 66/1, but he’s had a great year with additional roles in “War for the Planet of the Apes” and “The Glass Castle.” But competing against a co-star isn’t a problem as long as one them is the clear favorite of the two. “Chicago” supporting actress Catherine Zeta-Jones was the voters’ preference over Queen Latifah in 2003, and Octavia Spencer overtook her “The Help” co-star Jessica Chastain in 2012. Both of those films went on to be three-time winners, so that might bode well for “Three Billboards.”

For “Lady Bird” to win three SAG Awards it might need a lot more luck as it will have to pull off an upset in all three categories. Its ensemble is currently in third place with odds of 17/2. But the ensemble category is especially competitive this year, and much like the Oscar race for Best Picture its really anyone’s to win.

“Lady Bird” lead actress Saoirse Ronan is on McDormand’s heels, residing in second place with odds of 11/2. But the fact that Ronan plays a teenager could make this a difficult trophy for her to snag since no one has won for playing a character so young. Laurie Metcalf, Ronan’s onscreen mother, was upset by another mom at the Golden Globes and Critics’ Choice Awards: Allison Janney (“I, Tonya”). In the SAG Awards supporting race Metcalf is also in second place with odds of 3/2. This is Metcalf’s first individual nomination, and the chance to finally reward a television (“Roseanne”) and Broadway (“A Doll’s House, Part 2”) star could prove too tempting for her fellow actors to pass up.

But even if neither film joins the three-time winners club it will not mean the film is out of the Oscar race for Best Picture. Last year “Moonlight” was only able to win one SAG Award, for Mahershala Ali‘s supporting role — and it still won the academy’s big prize! In a year as competitive as this one, it’s not over until the fat lady (bird) sings.Be sure to make your SAG predictions so that Hollywood insiders can see how their films and performers are faring in our odds.

The 24th annual Screen Actors Guild Awards are just around the corner, and all the major players will once again be competing for a coveted Actor statuette. The awards will be simulcast live on TNT and TBS at 8 p.m. ET/5 p.m. PT on Sunday, Jan. 21.

The winners of the statuettes (commonly called “the Actor”) are chosen by card-carrying members of the Screen Actors Guild — meaning that recognition comes from the winners’ peers in the industry.

Real Madrid vs Deportivo La Coruna

Real have won just two of their last six games in all competitions with both victories coming in the Copa del Rey.Zidane’s side have dropped to fifth in La Liga and are 19 points behind leaders Barcelona, although they have a game in hand.”I don’t think about negative things, only positive,” said Zidane, whose side host Deportivo La Coruna on Sunday.”We will find positive things. I’m never going to throw in the towel.”I’m going to continue fighting as I’ve always shown and I’m not going to quit ever.”

Real Madrid will host Deportivo La Coruna at the iconic Santiago Bernabeu in the Spanish Primera Division on Sunday afternoon.The reigning league champions have not shown any sign of defending the title as they currently sit a mammoth 19 points behind current leaders Barcelona.

In all seriousness, while Real Madrid are currently enduring a well-documented rough patch – well, it would have been tough to out-perform last year’s trophy-laden season – it is to be expected that they’ll get that dastardly monkey off their back any match now.

Although Los Blancos lost to Villareal last weekend, it wasn’t for want of trying. Madrid had 28 attempts at goal on the day, more than any other team in La Liga has in a single game this season.

This reassuring factor, paired with the fact that Depor are floundering at 18th place in the table and have picked up just one win in their last 10 games, means that this could provide a promising opportunity for Zidane’s men to get themselves a vital victory. However, should they fail to win, there will no doubt be sightings of the dreaded white handkerchiefs fluttering at the Bernabéu.

Real Madrid hopes to get some momentum going in La Liga when it hosts Deportivo La Coruna on Sunday at the Santiago Bernabeu.

UFC 220 predictions for Stipe Miocic vs. Francis Ngannou, prelims, odds, fight card

Being big is relevant again in fighting. Over the last year or so, both boxing and MMA have seen somewhat of a rebirth in the heavyweight divisions with Anthony Joshua, Deontay Wilder and Stipe Miocic rising through the ranks as the best in the world. And with top champions brings out some of the best competitors, and on Saturday night in Boston, Miocic will be the first to answer a truly tough test.

The current UFC heavyweight champion is set to take on perhaps the scariest puncher in MMA when he squares off against Francis Ngannou in the main event at TD Garden. Ngannou (11-1, 7 KOs) has won all five of his fights since joining the company and all coming via KO/TKO with none getting past the second round. His brutal knockout of top contender Alistair Overeem at UFC 218 might have been the most vicious knockout of the year.

But Miocic remains his calm and collected self ahead of his newest challenge. Miocic (17-2, 13 KOs) is also on a five-fight knockout streak and sits just one win short of being the longest reigning heavyweight champion in company history.

“I’m so used to it by now,” Miocic said during his open workout on Wednesday. “I love being the underdog because I shut everyone up. That’s what this sport’s all about — it’s like ‘The Jerry Springer Show’ … I’m walking out ‘and still.’ No one (else) is going to be champion until I leave.

“I’m going to go out there and do my job. That’s what I do every time. I know he’s a big, tough guy, and he hits hard, but so do I. I pack a little punch. I might be smaller than him, but it’s all good.”

Not to be outdone, but light heavyweight champion Daniel Cormier is set to defend the title he was granted back after Jon Jones failed a drug test after their fight last summer. He faces one of the fastest rising stars in the company in Volkan Oezdemir.

It’s a loaded card to say the least, so let’s check out the full card, including prelims, ahead of UFC 220 with the latest odds from Bovada.

With a big card on tap, our experts took a crack at picking each of the main card fights. Here are your pick makers: Brian Campbell (combat sports writer), Matthew Coca (producer), Michael Mormile (producer), Jack Jorgensen (editor) and Brandon Wise (editor).

FIGHT CAMPBELL MORMILE COCA JORGENSEN WISE
Miocic (c) vs. Ngannou Ngannou Miocic Ngannou Ngannou Ngannou
Cormier (c) vs. Oezdemir Cormier Cormier Cormier Cormier Oezdemir
Burgos vs. Kattar Burgos Kattar Burgos Burgos Burgos

Overall (2018) 0-0-0 0-0-0 0-0-0 0-0-0 0-0-0

Campbell on why Ngannou will win: There are plenty of reasons not to give in to the intoxication that is Francis Ngannou’s hype. The raw slugger made his UFC debut just two years ago and has yet to fight past the second round. He has also yet to fully prove he is comfortable on the ground or in any situation that doesn’t involve him turning out the lights of his opponents. Let’s not forget that Stipe Miocic is battle-tested and dangerously powerful in his own right. But this is still heavyweight mixed martial arts, where the unproven hot hand can stay hot if he can keep landing that fight-altering blow. Until someone proves they can disarm the hulking Ngannou or test his cardio to levels not yet seen, the hype is justified. Ngannou is a next-level type of scary human being who has been installed as the betting favorite for a reason.

Mormile on why Miocic will win: It’s a five-round fight for a reason, and Ngannou hasn’t gone past two rounds in his pro MMA career. I think Miocic will be able to stay out of Ngannou’s reach, and drag him into deep water. The second note that got me was Ngannou’s wins in his last three are definitely his most notable, but if you take a deeper look, all three fighters combined for a 3-6 record in their last three fights.  I think it might be too much too soon for the knockout artist.

Coca on why Cormier will win: No matter how you look at it, the only person that can beat DC is Jon Jones. It’s that simple. If not for Jones, Cormier would likely be the greatest light heavyweight fighter in MMA history. The two fighters who have given DC the biggest trouble inside the Octagon were “Bones” and Alexander Gustafsson because of their height. Oezdemir doesn’t have that going for him. Look for DC to go back to rely on his wrestling and get the fight to the ground. If he gets Oezdemir down, the fight’s over.

Wise on why Oezdemir will win: Ever since his shocking stoppage of Misha Cirkunov, I have been on the Oezdemir train. Whenever he is able to get within range of his opponents, they suddenly collapse from his powerful punches. It is almost a story out of fiction, but the power he currently possesses is almost unheard of in the sport. Expect Oezdemir to put the pressure on Cormier as soon as he can to finish this fight off before it gets into the later rounds where DC is known for grinding out victories on the ground.
