Summary: Babbitt has somehow gone from a borderline first-round pick to a guy who likely won't fall out of the lottery which makes his decision to turn pro seem like a no-brainer. He is a tremendous scorer due to his inside/outside game, but will be a liability at the defensive end at the next level. I don't think he is worthy of a lottery pick, but he has a lot of buzz around his name right now.
Player Comparison: Danilo Gallinari. Babbitt has drawn comparisons to Warrior legend Chris Mullin likely because they are both lefty sharpshooters. I think Gallinari is a better match because they are both great outside shooters who don't have tremendous athleticism. Babbitt is a better creator and ball handler than Gallinari, but will be known for his outside shooting at the next level.
A little late on this par but here goes: Houston -134 and if time available going in the second tier spot the Dodgers either with the high ML or I may go the way of the RL. Another: Colorado -134, two open. Another: Nats -149, two open. Another: Boston -200 (Sale), two open. GL tonight folks.
With every sports outlet picking the Titans, I feel they are overrated. I had them underrated last year but loved their o-line. They keep referencing before Mariota got injured. The thing is they were getting killed by the Jaguars before that injury. They pulled out some huge wins vs KC and GB but also struggled in their own division. I also wonder how Mariota's injury heals for this season as it was late in the season. I think they will be more of a .500 team that keeps games close. Hopefully, that means they cover the spread as underdogs.
