    Stark -- to select the players who should comprise the National Leagues 34-man
    roster for the 87th Midsummer Classic on July 12 at San Diegos Petco Park.Note:
    Players expected to be on the disabled list through the All-Stars Game -- such
    as Clayton Kershaw who was initially named a starter by all six of our voters --
    were excluded from the roster.??ESPNs American League All-Stars

    . The third-ranked Ivanovic, who won the event in 2008 and
    10, served five aces and broke Wickmayer, also a former winner in 2009, five
    times. "The result looked easier than it really was," Ivanovic said.

    on what was good about the clubs recent play. It worked. The Westgate Las Vegas
    SuperBook releases updated futures odds across major sports every week. ESPN
    Stats & Info Senior Researcher Matt Willis breaks down the biggest changes
    within the marketplace, including who is moving up or falling back among odds to
    win championships and major awards.?Super Bowl LIPatriots are the runaway
    favoritesThe New England Patriots lost to the Buffalo Bills in Week 4, albeit
    without Tom Brady or Jimmy Garoppolo able to play quarterback. New Englands odds
    to win the championship dropped to 4-1 at that point, but then the Patriots
    reeled off three straight wins -- and their championship odds have improved to a
    season-best 2-1 after Sundays victory over the Steelers, who were without Ben
    Roethlisberger.The Patriots odds are more impressive when you consider that only
    three other teams are better than 10-1 -- the Seahawks, Cowboys and Vikings. The
    next-best AFC team is the Denver Broncos at 14-1.The Steelers, who still hold a
    one-game lead in the AFC North, have seen their odds drop from 6-1, to 12-1, to
    now 16-1 after losses the past two weeks.Is there reason to believe in the
    Colts?The Indianapolis Colts have alternated wins and losses in each of their
    past six games, last beating the Tennessee Titans on Sunday to move to just a
    game back of the Houston Texans in the AFC South. But despite the somewhat
    uninspiring week for the Colts, they moved from 50-1 to 30-1 to win the
    championship, making them the sixth-favorite to win the conference title, ahead
    of teams like the Bengals, Texans and Bills, despite having a 3-4 record.ESPNs
    Football Power Index gives the Colts a 54 percent chance to win this week at
    home against the Kansas City Chiefs, but just a 29 percent chance to beat the
    Packers the following week on the road.ddddddddddddCollege Football PlayoffOhio
    State was upset on the road Saturday against unranked Penn State. Now,
    undefeated Michigan has sole possession of first place in the Big Ten East, one
    game in front of both the Buckeyes and Nittany Lions.But Ohio States odds didnt
    take too much of a hit. It backed up slightly from 5-2 to 3-1 to win the
    championship. Thats still the second-best in the country behind Alabama, and
    just ahead of Michigan at 5-1.The reason? Despite the loss, Ohio State still
    basically controls its road to the Big Ten Championship Game. Even if Penn State
    wins out, if Ohio State wins its final five regular-season games, including
    against Michigan in the regular-season finale, it wins the division.What did the
    win do for Penn States chances? Despite needing a pair of Michigan losses to
    clinch the division, Penn State improved from nearly off the board (9,999-1) to
    a more manageable 500-1.NASCAR Sprint Cup ChampionshipWhen NASCAR trimmed its
    playoff field from 16 to 12 drivers, Martin Truex Jr. was the second favorite at
    9-2, right behind Kevin Harvick (4-1).Truex spent most of the summer at 8-1 to
    win the championship, usually just off the favorites, who were at 6-1 or 7-1.
    Value-wise, it seemed like a good bet, given that Truex led the most laps this
    season and his best track type was the one that made up half of the playoff
    schedule. But Truex had a bad playoff leg and was eliminated, making Harvick to
    the prohibitive favorite at 5-2. He was 6-1 just two races ago. ' ' '
