TD Passes Galore in the NFL

The 65 touchdown passes thrown in Week 2 (tied NFL record) as well as Patrick Mahomes's torrid start (on pace for 80 touchdowns) prompted BetDSI Sportsbook to put up props on the pass-happy league the NFL has become.



Total touchdown passes in Week 3 of 2018 reg. season

Over 60.5 (+110)
Under 60.5 (-140)

Total touchdown passes by Patrick Mahomes during 2018 reg. season

Over 35.5 (-115)
Under 35.5 (-115)

Will Patrick Mahomes break single-season TD passes record of 55?

Yes +340
No -535

There are four totals in the 50s for Week 3 at BetDSI. Since 2003, only 8 percent of games have featured a total of 50 or higher. Through two weeks this season, the average is in line with that (9 percent), however, for Week 3, 25 percent of games have a total of 50 or higher.

Saints at Falcons (53)
49ers at Chiefs (56.5)
Patriots at Lions (52.5)
Steelers at Bucs (54)

Since 2003, there have only been 22 games with a total of 56.5 or higher. Totals of 57.5 or higher are a perfect 9-0 towards the over.

-OnTracks is a solution for all outdoor athletes (runners, mountain bikers, walkers, hikers, etc.), but it can also be used every day by both motorized and non-motorized two-wheelers around town.

Julien Absalon, two-time Olympic champion and five-time cross-country mountain bike champion, one of France's finest sporting achievements, discovered the onTracks GuideWatches  during a meeting with Philippe Leca, CEO.

Kindle Book Pick of the Week: AEngineering for Cats: Better the Life of Your Pet with10 Cat-Approved Projects

A cute but fun read that is worth a mention.

DIY for at lovers.

There may be 100 million pet cats in this country, but who says that means they’re domesticated? Sure, they clean themselves, use a litter box, and hunt rodents, but cats are also territorial beasts who think furniture is meant for claw sharpening, and that running water is always better than still.

In this inventive, surprisingly funny, and highly entertaining and practical book, Mac Delaney addresses the quirks of cat behavior through the mindset of an aerospace engineer (because that’s what he is!)—and gives us 10 projects that solve the most common sources of friction affecting cats and their doting owners.

Take that preference for running water. Because cats don’t trust still water (in the wild, a stagnant pool can harbor disease), they’re often dehydrated and cranky. Here’s how to build not one but two different fountains that will provide fresh, moving water. Or another problem: Cats, diminutive in stature, can feel inferior around humans, causing them to act out in negative ways. The solution: Erect a cat shelf on your wall, giving your pet a prime perch and a height advantage. And that furniture scratching problem? Construct the Cat Cave—it has angled surfaces for optimal scratching, a curved top for ergonomic lounging, a carpeted interior for perfect napping, and an escape route out back for emergency exits.

For any cat lover with a modicum of DIY skills, here’s a whole new approach to living happily ever after with your pet(s).
